Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/MyImmortal'': Dumbledore is most well-known for yelling, "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING YOU MOTHERFUCKERS?!" to Ebony and Malfoy [[MakingLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces having sex in the Forbidden Forest]]. This is for several reasons: [[AudienceSurrogate it's what many of the detractors were thinking]], it's hilariously OutOfCharacter for Dumbledore to swear, and Tara (the author) "explained" it by saying that he had a headache.



* In ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' story "Falling for a Fell", Crimson Fell wonders if she will always be known for killing an Original. She does think it's a pretty cool thing to be known for, though
* In ''FanFic/AvatarOfVictory'', Asha's family is considered jinxed since one of her ancestors, who was actually a decent commander, got the last Avatar killed in action.
* In ''FanFic/TheBoyWithTheMagicNotebook'', Lily tends to remind Maxwell about his prankster days when he first got the Notebook as a way to keep him humble.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6035532/6/Souls-Abound Souls Abound]]'', Crappy the goblin bitterly mused to himself that "shit yourself just once in class and that's all anybody would ever remember about you."
* The ''Touhou Project/Pokemon'' crossover ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8862808/1/Monsters-In-Paradise Monsters In Paradise]]'' has, all of people, Yukari Yakumo. Rustboro City's local librarian and her family take every chance to remind the youkai that she caused a swathe of destruction between Mauville and Rustboro while learning to ride a bicycle.
-->'''Yukari:''' Honestly. You take one bike ride, and suddenly you're a pariah. I ''knew'' I should've flown.
* In RoseOfPollux's fics, Jamie has on occasion reminded the Doctor that he had forgotten what Jamie looked like [[https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/DoctorWhoS6E2TheMindRobber during one of their early adventures]].
* In ''Fanfic/TheMLPLoops'', Applejack once tried to make cider out of potatoes. On consumption, Twilight went blind, Spike shot flames out of nose and ears, Zecora flat-out refused to try it, and Discord burst into fire (before announcing his approval). Apple Bloom eventually found a use for it - as a superb all-natural engine lubricant. Since then, references to the notorious brew keep popping up, much to her embarrassment.
* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Willow and Cordelia]] don't seem to be living down burning down Xander's house in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10204239/12/Mirror-Mirror Mirror, Mirror]]'' after their break-up. Particularly because they broke up with him then burned down his house in the mirror world because he didn't seem upset enough about it. To be fair to them, they thought the reflections reset and didn't know Xander was just taking them to different reflections each time.
* Lampshaded by Loki in ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/6066694/chapters/13931643#workskin Castaway Getaways]]'' that one group of humans named him a god of deceit and mischief and Asgard has held that over him for centuries ever since.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11126195/5/No-Competition No Competition]]'', Judas and [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Lich]] never let Lucifer forget about the time he had sex with a goat, even thousands of years later. On the flipside, Judas and Lucifer keep bringing up that Lich sank Atlantis.
* The ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13220686/1/Dear-Fanfiction-Writers Dear, Fanfiction Writers]]'' features multiple instances of the characters reacting to examples of this common in ''Total Drama'' fanfics (and the show's fandom in general), such as Harold seeing Heather's exposed breasts in ''Island'', Leshawna lying to her teammates to get a spa trip in ''Action'', and Geoff gaining AcquiredSituationalNarcissism in ''Action''.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13299443/1/Departure-from-the-Diary Departure from the Diary]]'', [[GenderFlip Tamelyn Riddle]] regularly reminds Harry of his LeeroyJenkins tendencies, particularly that he tried to fight a Basilisk as a twelve year old with literally no plan at all. She makes it quite clear that event alone has convinced her he'd get them both killed if she ever left him alone for a few hours.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/SupperSmashBrosMishonhFromGod'' has an example from the reboot: while Reboot!Sara has committed many reprehensible acts, the one atrocity the comments seem to focus on is the fact that she made poor [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Isabelle]] cry.

Added DiffLines:

%% NeverLiveItDown is a YMMV trope about audience reactions. InUniverse examples belong under OnceDoneNeverForgotten.



* ''Fanfic/CourtneyAndTheViolinOfDespair'' has an in-universe example. Brittany Reidís refusal to let Courtney forget an embarrassing miscue at their school's orchestra concert destroys any chance the former friends had of reconciling from an earlier falling out. As a result, they become bitter rivals and remain so for the rest of their high school careers.



* An in-universe example occurs in the ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' fic ''Fanfic/HerFracturedSpirit''. While doing a Squidmas jingle for charity, Callie accidentally sung "Come give us your unwanted boys", not "Come give us your unwanted toys". That take was never aired, however Marie will never let Callie live it down. She even has a personal recording of it.
* InUniverse example in ''Fanfic/CrimsonAndEmerald''. Hawks knows the day that his mother will forgive him for jumping out of their apartment window to test out his wings is still a long day coming.

* Kalash93, despite his long history of serious stories and war dramas, will always be best known for Hot Button Beach Day.
* [[Webcomic/HiImDaisy HELICOPTER CRASH]] KILLS 25 HOSTAGES (...And a dude who slept with his '''stepmom'''!)
* If you're feeling unkind, fanfiction in general is this trope, since SturgeonsLaw dictates that the bulk of fans even inclined to write fanfiction at all are abominably terrible writers.
* Sergeant Sprinkles will forever be known as the guy who wrote the ''very'' [[{{gorn}} gorny]] WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fan fic known as ''FanFic/{{Cupcakes}}''. While he does appreciate the fanart and attention it gets, he'd rather you read some of his other work and didn't think of him as "That cupcakes guy".
* Thanks to [[{{anvilicious}} ham-handed]] writing, Blaze - author of ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureau'' - is widely seen as an [[MisanthropeSupreme absolute misanthrope]]. Likewise, the misanthropy-laced first chapter is widely mistaken as emblematic of the fic and its 'verse as a whole.



* Thanks to certain incidents and smear campaigns [[Administrivia/RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment which will not be talked about here]], you'd be forgiven for thinking the author of ''Pretty Cure Club Activities'' (elements of which are present in ''FanFic/ClubPrettyCure'') writes only ripoffs of other stories, includes racist stereotypes in all of them, [[StrawMisogynist thinks of femininity as a weakness]], speaks exclusively with NoIndoorVoice, is a LoonyFan of some celebrities, is a massive [[WholesomeCrossdresser "trap"]] fan, makes inappropriate jokes, and/or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking is just plain crazy/emo]] (those {{Creator Breakdown}}s he suffers from time to time don't help, either). It's actually just one reason[[note]]the other significant reason being [[OldShame he doesn't consider his works quite as good as when he started work on them]], kind of like ''FanFic/PrettyCurePerfumePreppy''[[/note]] why he has thoroughly rebooted his Cureverse (in which all that will be toned down significantly, if not completely nonexistent, in the reboot, and even before the reboot much of the crap for which a bunch of other Curefic authors know him was hardly prevalent to begin with), and he's actually more personable (if still somewhat perpetually sour for the most part) in real life.
* Another Curefic author, Midoriri, will never hear the end of how she [[GenreKiller effectively torpedoed the "afterschool activities" thematic for Curefics]] with her aggressively litigious behavior towards other authors, including (but not limited to) the one mentioned above, accusing them of knocking off ''FanFic/PrettyCureBukatsudoEnergetic'' whether or not the accusations are true.

* Fanfic writer phantomrose96 was well-known in the ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' fandom at one point for her excellently-written stories (many of them rather [[DarkFic dark]]). Then, one day, she decided to write a short story in response to a prompt concerning the idea that the resident JerkJock Dash has a rampant crush on Phantom that he tries to downplay (because homophobic jocks). The first sentence in that fic? "It's not ''gay'' if he's ''dead''." These six words were [[MemeticMutation launched into infamy]] almost immediately, and for years afterwards, that's all people in the fandom knew the author for, [[https://phantomrose96.tumblr.com/tagged/ingihd/chrono no matter how much she hated it.]]

That take was never aired, however Marie will never let Callie live it down. She even has a personal recording of it.
