Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationDisplacement: A very localized example here with ''WesternAnimation/TazMania''. In his youth, he played the first UsefulNotes/GameBoy game based on the show long before he knew the show even ''existed''. He still has yet to watch an episode of the show, but he remembers having fun with the game. As far as he knew back then, it was based on Taz in general rather than a specific part of the character's history.


* People who [[DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery use their autism as an excuse for horrible actions]] really make him mad, considering he's autistic himself, and feels it's ''no'' excuse to be a jerk.

** Comtimuing this, some older entires reeked of elitism, and that was wrong of him. Some may persist, and if so, he will remove them upon noticing them. He just needed to learn to let people have fun.



* PeripheryDemographic: As time goes on, it's becoming rarer and rarer that he's even part of the target audience for a series. At most, he ''was'' part of the target audience when he first got into it.

* PeripheryDemographic: As time goes on, it's becoming rarer and rarer that he's even part of the target audience for a series. At most, he ''was'' part of the target audience when he first got into it. It's because a lot of the things actually made for his demographic don't appeal to him. That's not to say such works lack merit; it's just not for him, is all.



* TraumaCongaLine: Has been through waaaaaaay too much betrayal in four months alone. And it wound up getting worse, and then better, and then worse again. It's a miracle he still has any sanity left!

* BecameTheirOwnAntithesis: His most polite interpretation of Creator/KeijiInafune, and that's assuming he was ever [[DoingItForTheArt what the fans thought of him as]] rather than always being [[MoneyDearBoy in it only for the money]], seeing as how he was against Capcom's money grabbing ways, only to employ them himself when he left. Of course, if Creator/HidekiKamiya's words have any relevance, it can't have started later than in the 2000s, and that itself is being optimistic.

* BrokenPedestal: Sega had been heading this way a while...then ''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Cranky]]'' ''[[DolledUpInstallment Food Friends]]'' happened, destroying what pedestal there was left ''to'' destroy.
** Creator/KeijiInafune managed this within far less time, yet in far worse ways; he made promises for ''VideoGame/MightyNo9'' he couldn't keep, either being broken completely, or being so badly fufilled as to kill goodwill otherwise. ''VideoGame/RedAsh'' having a Kickstarter ''before'' ''Mighty No. 9's'' release did not help him one bit; if anything, it gave him a reputation as a con man.

** The ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime never seems to wanna end its Dork Age, especially with the writers ''really'' believing in the AnimationAgeGhetto and the FleetingDemographicRule to the point of insanity. It's far too late for it to end with even ''some'' of its dignity intact now, and it's pretty clear the Dork Age will never end, at least not without [[TakingYouWithMe taking the anime with it]].



* GatewaySeries: The ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' film was SoCoolItsAwesome that at one pint, he actually collected graphic novels of the [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy comics]], and was thinking of getting a subscription to them. Sadly, the subscription never came to be, and eventually, he lost interest.



* HeelFaceDoorSlam: Once ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' and the 2017 game were announced, a lot of people seem to have automatically regained faith in Sega. He can't bring himself to believe that, and is baffled that people would so easily fall for the same tricks despite this. This was after ''Cranky Food Friends'', so he's under the belief that they'll throw away fans' trust the minute they think it's okay. In the meantime, let the fans believe that Sega means it this time when they say they're getting better; they're quite gullible anyways.
** Fans of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime seem similarly gullible; they seem to think the status quo will change despite ''years upon years'' worth of signs that it won't. Even when it seems like it might, everything reinforces that it won't. Even if it's at the last minute. How the fans keep hope forever remains a mystery, since they make even the past him, more idealistic and naive, look like the most cynical person on Earth on comparison.
* HypeBacklash: He's getting more and more tired of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse as time goes on, to the point to where a friend telling him to go see ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' and hyping it up actually made him ''less'' eager to go see it. He feels with very little in the way of viable competition, they've gotten ''way'' too cozy in their position.
* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: Part of his growing tiredness with the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse is the feeling that the films are getting too similar to each other.
** A more downplayed example is ''VideoGame/Splatoon2''; it's fun, and highly recommended for a portable ''Splatoon'' experience, but it feels more like an expansion pack of the original than an actual sequel, for it's a bit too similar. In terms of asthetics, it doesn't even look very different from the original.

** As noted under SuperlativeDubbing below, he loves Amitie's voice in the English dub of ''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Puyo Pop Fever]]''; it sure sounds corny at times, but it fits her perfectly. While he's kinda sad Evelyn Huynh didn't return to the role for ''Puyo Puyo Tetris''' dub, [[TheOtherDarrin her successor]], Creator/ChristineMarieCabanos, not only did a fine job taking the role, but actually ''surpassed'' her predecessor!
* NeverLiveItDown: ''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Cranky]]'' ''[[DolledUpInstallment Food Friends]]'' may be LostForever, but he will ''always'' use it as a case against Sega. It shouldn't have been made in the first place.

predecessor.



** DevelopmentHell: Depending on the circumstances, this can range from understandable to just plain irritating.



** OutOfOrder: He hates it when box sets, like some of the older ''Film/JamesBond'' Blu-Ray box sets, do that. At least with those, the film's were in individual cases so you could follow [[WebVideo/YouKnowWhatsBullshit the Bullshit Man's]] suggestion and throw out the boxes, put the films in their proper order, but unfortunately, it doesn't apply to all of them.

*** That said, a UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch version is coming. He expects that to have all the benefits of the Vita release with none of the drawbacks, but time will tell. Game is still worth playing no matter what you have.



* TheRemake: He views ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'' as a remake of [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the 1990 original]], due to sharing much of the same plot with each other. Of course, he feels it's such a bad remake that anyone who's seen the 1990 film ought to just stick with it.

** Nearly everyone in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' is this. He finds the characters to be unpleasant and not very entertaining, with many of them, at best, being made up of the worst aspects of many cartoon characters without many, if any of the redeeming aspects, and at worst, [[RomanticPlotTumor shoehorning romance subplots]] in a show that would still have too much to juggle even without them. It's to where [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy he doesn't give a shit about who wins or loses, or who gets together]]; he just wants them all to [[KillEmAll die]]. This contributes greatly to [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim him wondering what people see in these characters]].



* SequelGap: He's noticed that there's an odd trend of releasing sequels to films quite a few years after the originals. This wouldn't be so bad on its own, the the problem is, they pick the wrong movies to make sequels to. He certainly didn't see anyone clamoring for sequels to ''Film/BadSanta'', the ''ComicBook/SinCity'' movie and ''Film/AliceInWonderland2010'' several years after their release, and yet we got them anyways. There are also sequels to ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' planned, again, despite the original leaving public consiousness. In those cases, he feels the time to properly capitalize off the originals' successes had long since passed; they would have had to release them no later than three years after the originals to stand a chance, but instead, they sat on it until demand for the sequels had long since passed, leading to {{Box Office Bomb}}s that surprised only the executives and (possibly) the creators. [[TooDumbToLive And yet they keep doing it]].

** That said. ''Film/AliceThroughTheLookingGlass'' also had controversies surrounding Creator/JohnnyDepp, who played
the creators. [[TooDumbToLive And yet they keep doing it]].Mat Hatter in both films, so the SequelGap wasn't the only reason it bombed. He still feels that the gap did nothing to ''help'' the film, however.



** Some regard ''Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug'' as [[EvenBetterSequel a better film]]. He, on the other hand, thinks it's a worse film due to EndingFatigue where the movie seems like it'll end, but then it doesn't. It occurred too frequently not to notice, to the point that when the credits finally ''did'' roll, he was surprised because he expected another fakeout. Fortunately, [[TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies the next film]] fixes that problem, and is a better film for it. Though sadly, since it's necessary set-up for the third film, you can't just [[FanonDiscontinuity skip it and call it a day]], or you'll be missing much needed info for the third film.
** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' was most certainly this following up from the original. The card-based battle system was more intrusive than fun, for one. The story wasn't so bad, but he feels you could skip it and not miss ''too'' much, especially with recaps. The UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 version, for what it's worth, he considers the better version, but still retaining a lot of the handheld version's faults.

* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: He's heard that ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' [[DeaderThanDisco has been losing fans]] due to SeasonalRot. He considers ''Total Drama Island'' (the first season) to be one of the worst cartoons out there, thanks in no small part to [[UncannyValley ugly character designs]], [[OffModel poor animation]] and [[TheScrappy unlikeable characters]], making him less interested in how it's losing fans and more interested in how it ''got'' those fans in the first place, seeing as how hearing about the SeasonalRot sounds less like [[JumpingTheShark a good show gone bad]] and more like [[SerialEscalation something that was unwatchable to start with somehow becoming even more unwatchable]]. Basically, it went FromBadToWorse, which is actually impressive, all things considered.

Added DiffLines:

* People who [[DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery use their autism as an excuse for horrible actions]] really make him mad, considering he's autistic himself, and feels it's ''no'' excuse to be a jerk.


* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: It's very much a ZigZaggedTrope for this guy; sometimes, he feels the new creatives did just fine with the series despite the original creators no longer being involved, and admittedly, [[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Amitie]], his favorite character of all time, owes her very creation to a change in hands. In some other cases, few, if any of the installments made after the original creators moved have managed to even come close to the originals in pure quality. Even he has to admit that, as much as he liked the Neversoft ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' games and has fond memories of them, the change in hands from Harmonix to Creator/{{Activision}}'s developers did long term famage to the series.

** A different negative to this is that original is beloved by many even year or even decades after release, meaning any potential sequel [[ToughActToFollow has a lot to live up to]]. The real negative comes when the sequel comes and [[{{Sequelitis}} fails to live up to it]]; it might have been an outright bad film, or it might have actually been a good film on its own, just not the quality of the original.

* {{Sequelitis}}: As seen in FanonDiscontinuity above, he doesn't consider ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' to be a very good movie. Contrast [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan its predecessor]], which, while not a masterpiece itself, was still a decent flick. To be exact, it didn't actually fix the first film's flaws at all. Rather, [[FranchiseOriginalSin it took the first film's flaws and made them worse]]. While he would have given ''Franchise/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'' another chance, he wasn't sad to see it go in favor of an [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] [[ContinuityReboot reboot]], starting with Spidey's appearance in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' and continuing in the solo film ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''.
** Another example is ''[[VideoGame/WarioMasterOfDisguise Wario: Master Of Disguise]]'', a game with bad touchscreen controls you're forced to use whether you want to or not. Even sadder since we had to wait a long while between this and ''VideoGame/WarioWorld''. You can believe after the long wait, he expected better.

These are inexcusable most of the time, however. More frequently than not, this tends to happen to characters who, if they were in that situation in canon, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy would want their beloved to be happy]], rather than [[CharacterDerailment turn into psychos]]. Seriously, why do that?

Added DiffLines:

* ItsTheSameNowItsSucks: Part of his growing tiredness with the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse is thr feeling that the films are getting too similar to each other.
** A more downplayed example is ''VideoGame/Splatoon2''; it's fun, and highly recommended for a portable ''Splatoon'' experience, but it feels more like an expansion pack of the original than an actual sequel, for it's a bit too similar. In terms of asthetics, it doesn't even look very different from the original.

Added DiffLines:

** A more minor case is this with the UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita version of ''VideoGame/ChildOfLight''; it has a lower framerate than its console versions, but while he ''does'' believe the Vita could have done a better port, if you want to play the game on the go, you're still gonna have an amazing time with this version.
** The UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 version of ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' is also this, though people exaggerate the extent; it's mainly lower framerate and lower quality graphics, but it's still very playable and the game is intact. ''That said'', unlike ''Child of Light'' above, it doesn't have the advantage of being playable on the go, so if you have even one of those consoles, it might still be best to get the UsefulNotes/NintendoGamecube or UsefulNotes/{{Xbox}} version instead.


Added DiffLines:

* TheRemake: He views ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'' as a remake of [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the 1990 original]], due to sharing much of the same plot with each other. Of course, he feels it's such a bad remake that anyone who's seen the 1990 film ought to just stick with it.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorsPet: Despite (or maybe even ''because of'') his constant losses, he feels Ash Ketchum from the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime has become this, simply for sticking around as the main character long after his time should have been up.
