See also HypeAversion, HypeBacklash, ConfirmationBias and ContestedSequel. Applied to food and drink (and fierce poison), this is usually ForeignQueasine. May form a {{Hatedom}}. Compare BaseBreakingCharacter, which is basically this trope when applied to characters. A BanOnPolitics is in effect on many discussion forums to avoid such controversial topics.

* {{Exploited|Trope}} in ads for Marmite. The manufacturers use "You Either Love It or Hate It" as their advertising slogan, giving this trope an alternative name: The Marmite Effect. As Creator/DavidMitchell pointed out, this works by creating a FalseDichotomy: If you don't ''hate'' it, you must be one of those people who ''loves'' it, so why haven't you got any in the house?

[[folder: Technology]]
* The UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} Controller. Proponents love its extreme flexibility and configuration options; having a full-blown pointing device comparable to a standard mouse that can be held in hand; and it is able to emulate a keyboard, mouse, or traditional controller, or any combination of the three simultaneously, making it fully functional with any game that Steam recognizes as, well, a game. In some cases it's significantly ''superior'' to both KB/M and other controllers, because it can directly compensate for [[SomeDexterityRequired questionable controls design]]. Detractors find the heavy reliance on the Steam client and Big Picture in particular problematic, the configuration menu overly complicated and overwhelming, the right touchpad can't compensate for lacking a second analog stick in games tailored specifically to such, [[DamnYouMuscleMemory the A/B/X/Y buttons are in the wrong place]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and it uses AA batteries]]. The specific case of using the left touchpad as a d-pad is controversial in itself; for some, the ability to adjust its virtual shape freely makes it better than any real d-pad, while for others it isn't usable as such at all.
