Added DiffLines:

* "Discreet" General Complainer: Rant about how much I hate the work in general... followed by three sentences nitpicking a specific moment so I can justify putting this entry on the [=DMoS=] page.


* Real-Life Complaining: Rule-breaking complaint about [[ExecutiveMeddling executives "ruining" the work]], the work's creator doing something in real life I didn't like, or similar.

* Armchair Scientist: A complaint about a scientific inaccuracy in a work. It doesn't matter if the work wasn't going for realism in the first place. I may not have done the research myself, or even ''watched'' the work in question, but that doesn't matter because complaining feels so good!



* Bad Memory: An example that's full of mistakes, but contains ''just'' enough correct facts that you're reluctant to delete it for being untrue.

* Armchair Historian #1: This single minor inaccuracy or dramatization for the sake of the story means ''[Work Name]'' is not properly researched, and therefore unwatchable garbage.
** Armchair Historian #2: Complaint about a supposed inaccuracy in the work. Not that I bothered to do the research myself -- I didn't even watch the damn show. Why subject myself to that when I can go straight to the fun complaining?
* Science Snob: Complaint about an unrealistic aspect of the work, even though it contains plenty of unrealistic elements and clearly prioritizes being [[RuleOfFun fun]].
* Rival Fan: Example that keeps bringing up how ''[Other Work]'' did something much better than ''[Work Name]''.
* Copycat Accuser: This moment in ''[Work Name]'' is slightly similar to a moment in ''[Other Work]'', which proves that ''[Work Name]'' is just a bunch of unoriginal crap.
* Real-Life Complaining: Rule-breaking complaint about [[ExecutiveMeddling executives "ruining" the work]], the work's creator doing something in real life I didn't like, or similar.


* Poorly-Disguised Recommendation: ''JustForFun/WorkName'' is an amazing experience. It's got a great soundtrack, stellar acting, compelling characters and fantastic plots. You should totally check it out. Also, the ending to episode 5 kind of sucks, so please skip it when you watch ''Work Name''.

Added DiffLines:

* Polly-Anna: ''JustForFun/WorkName'' has a DownerEnding. I don't like sad things. Don't ask me why I watched the show to the end in the first place when it was obvious that it wasn't going to end well.
* Negative Nelly: Something went right in ''JustForFun/WorkName''? That must mean it's too saccharine and/or for babies.

* The Ethics Committee: Claim that an episode that wasn't supposed to be taken seriously was really preachy with a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop, then rant against the moral and how it was {{Anvilicious}}. Watch my [=YouTube=] video where I discuss this moment in detail: [hypothetical link]

Added DiffLines:

An introduction that goes something like "Not even ''JustForFun/WorkName'' is immune from [[DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck these moments]]" if the work is popular, or something snarkier if the work's quality is more... questionable.

Keep in mind:

* Rules that some people will gladly break whether they see them or not.
----
* Some Troper: Complaint that the show is DarthWiki/RuinedForever[[invoked]].
* Shocked and Appalled: I was offended by a joke in an episode, and stopped watching the show immediately.
* Ultra Hardcore Real Fan: For me, the straw that broke the camel's back was when a character did something (supposedly) out of character.
* Alice X Bob [=4eva=]: I RageQuit the fandom when my favourite {{ship|ping}} was [[ShipSinking sunk]].
* I Don't Get It: Complaint that completely misses the point of a supposedly offensive moment.
* Line-of-Sight Complainer: Angry rant directed entirely at the MisBlamed author. From here on I will not follow anything that this author makes, ever.
* Totally Not a Real Life Example: Angry rant about something one of the creators did in real life.
* I Actually Like Black Comedy, I Swear: Claim that I love BlackComedy as much as the next man, but this was a step too far.
* Catgirl: Claim that a joke in the last episode made kittens cry. Seriously, not cool, MisBlamed author.
* [[FirstInstallmentWins First Season Wins]]: Claim that the show has suffered SeasonalRot, followed by a NostalgiaFilter-fueled rant about how much better the show used to be.
* Is This a Reality Show: Angry rant directed entirely at a character [[WhatTheHellHero for doing something dickish]], as if that character were a real person.
* Still No Real Life Here: Example from an actual reality show.
* Expert Comedian: Claim that I understood an offensive joke perfectly (even though I clearly didn't) and I still didn't find it funny. I have no respect for the people who write this show any longer.
* Screw Speedy Gonzales: Supposed defense against perceived intolerance against a minority, even though members of that minority are fine with the joke, thought it was funny, and might have even been the ones who wrote it in the first place.
* The Ethics Committee: Claim that an episode that wasn't supposed to be taken seriously was really preachy with a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop, then rant against the moral and how it was {{Anvilicious}}. Watch my [=YouTube=] video where I discuss this moment in detail: [hypothetical link]
* Wannabe CausticCritic: Nitpicky ranting that just screams "This person will continue to watch the show and will make a fuss every time there's a new episode."
* DOESNOTREADTHERULES:
** Entry that LITERALLY breaks every '''fucking''' rule of the [=DMoS=] page. I ''seriously'' don't get it.
** Another rule-breaking entry from the same troper for the same work for good measure.
* Aspiring Karma Police: Complaint about anyone being a KarmaHoudini at all, no matter what offense they committed, even if StatusQuoIsGod in this show.
* Too Close to Home: Complaint that a character was acting cringy... as part of CringeComedy.
* Thin-Skin Logician: Complaint that a character was being hypocritical... as part of HypocriticalHumor.
* Thin-Skin Politician: Complaint that the work made fun of my side in politics, even if the portrayal was not meant to be taken seriously at all, and/or the work regularly makes fun of the other side as well.
* No BanOnPolitics: I hated that moment because it goes against my political views, which I will now describe at length. Once again, for emphasis, this moment was terrible and made me boycott the show because it doesn't align 100% with my political views.
* Hardcore Conservative Troper: I can't believe this show appealed to its LGBTFanbase! I miss when works were allowed to be apolitical. (Since, of course, any nod towards the notion that some people aren't as straight as I am is political.) I'm not a bigot, but as a cisgender straight white male, I am the most important demographic and won't stand for my importance being ignored like that!
* Hardcore Progressive Troper: I can't believe this show made a single slightly politically incorrect joke! Offensive jokes still trivialize real bigotry even if they're just jokes, so the whole production staff must actually hate [marginalized group], and anyone who watches the show must [[GodwinsLaw be a literal Nazi]]!
* Some Troper: An attempt to sneak in my second complaint about the same work.
* [[WallOfText Wall O' Text]]: A long rant pretty much nobody will read anyway. Later updated to also include One More Thing's complaint.
** MeToo: I agree.
** Lifelong Crusader: Administrivia/JustifyingEdit claiming that the moment is perfectly fine and Wall O' Text is an idiot.
*** Wall O' Text: Administrivia/{{Natter}} in response.
** [[gray:One More Thing: I'll point out a detail Wall O' Text forgot about that makes the moment even worse. My entry will later be deleted for being redundant after Wall O' Text adds the detail to their own entry.]]
** Some Other Troper: This is not actually my most hated moment in the work, but I'll choose it as my Dethroning Moment anyway because Wall O' Text has said everything there is to say about my most hated moment.
* Obligatory Troper: "Obligatory" example from a work widely considered to be SnarkBait.
* [[gray:No Groupthink Here, Nope: Example that was deleted by some devoted fan of the show despite following the rules perfectly.]]
* [=XxX0p1n10n4t3dG4m3rXxX=]: Rule-breaking complaint about a ScrappyMechanic, a boring or annoying level, an anticlimactic BossBattle, or something similar.
* Mad Protector: Complaint about when my favourite character was killed off.
* Better Than All Y'all: I think this whole work is one big dethroning moment, not to mention its fanbase.
* Double Dipper: My previous example used to be this really bad scene that I am describing in detail so you know everything I hated about it, but ''this'' scene was so bad it made me want to replace it with this new example.
* [[ComplainingAboutPeopleNotLikingTheShow People Ought to Like the Show]]: A HePannedItNowHeSucks rant against a reviewer.
* FanHater: A "He ''Didn't'' Pan It, Now He Sucks!" rant against a reviewer.
* [[gray:OldShame: Example that was deleted because the troper regretted ever writing it.]]
* Research is Boring: A rant by someone who clearly [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch didn't even watch the show before complaining about it]].
* Expert Comedian: An attempt at BitingTheHandHumor by complaining about the Dethroning Moment index itself.
* [[gray:Chronic Flouncer: I lost a lot of respect for the show after something happened in episode 13.]]
* [[gray:Chronic Flouncer: After deleting my previous entry, I'll now rant about something even worse in episode 17. I've lost a ''lot'' of respect for the show at this point.]]
* [[gray:Chronic Flouncer: For the second time I replace my entry for this show, I'll claim that the ending of episode 19 made me [[RuleOfThree lose all remaining respect for the show.]]]]
* Chronic Flouncer: The series finale somehow made me lose ''even more'' respect for the show.
* Armchair Scientist: A complaint about a scientific inaccuracy in a work. It doesn't matter if the work wasn't going for realism in the first place. I may not have done the research myself, or even ''watched'' the work in question, but that doesn't matter because complaining feels so good!
* Genre Alien: A rant from someone who clearly dislikes the work's entire genre, but for some reason felt the need to seek it out anyway.
* SingleIssueWonk: This is one of my 15 Dethroning Moment entries about examples of my PetPeeveTrope being used.
* Writers Should Be Nicer: The writers made a one-off joke at the expense of the ButtMonkey! This is unacceptable! How could they do that to the poor character?!
* MarySue[[invoked]] Police: My least favourite character succeeded at something or got a happy ending, even though he/she ''clearly'' didn't deserve it when the characters I do like failed! He/She is a total CreatorsPet and/or CanonSue!
* Obvious Impostor: Checking the page history will reveal that this entry was written by Some Other Troper trying to sneak in a 2nd moment by using someone else's handle.
* Totally Not a SockPuppet: Some Other Troper's 3rd moment.
* Administrivia/EditWar: Example that contains multiple inaccuracies, and has been repeatedly deleted and restored by tropers who canít agree if itís bad enough to be zapped for being blatantly untrue.
* [[gray:Example that was deleted for being unsigned, even though the troper who deleted it could easily have added the authorís handle instead, and made no attempt to explain to the author what they did wrong.]]
* General Complainer: I hate this general fact that happens in most if not all episodes. Just because things like "The fact that the main character [[FailureHero makes too many blatant mistakes]]" or "There are too many BlackComedy jokes that [[DudeNotFunny aren't funny]]" encompass the entire work, it doesn't mean they don't count as ''a'' moment!
* Not a Madman: Long rant about how this character was a {{Jerkass}} to that character that only makes sense if you are familiar with the work it's from. Otherwise, it comes off as either a ValleyGirl ranting about her friends or a ValleyGirl ranting about her demented hallucinations.
* Short Attention Span: I liked this work until there was a MindScrew moment or a GainaxEnding. That was confusing. I don't like confusing things.
* ''Death Battle'' Fan: An example from ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' that complains about how a Tropers' favorite character didn't win, even though such examples are banned due to all of the {{Flame War}}s it caused.
* Protesting the Nondescript: This particular moment in the show was absolutely disgusting and made me lose all of my respect for the show. I will not explain why. Tough luck if you haven't watched the show or if you don't understand what happened.
* Tropers/Name: My troper handle only has one word in it, but I forgot to put [={{curly brackets}}=] around it, so the link to my troper page won't appear or work, which will distract you from this example's actual content.
* [[red:I Am the Redlink]]: Example from ye olde times when troper pages were on the Main namespace.
