Even the other facets of media aren't safe from eliciting a negative reaction from their viewers.

  • One moment per work to a troper, if multiple entries are signed to the same troper the more recent one will be cut.
  • Moments only, no "just everything he said," or "This entire show," or "This entire series" entries.
  • No contesting entries. This is subjective, the entry is their opinion.

  • No natter. As above, anything contesting an entry will be cut, and anything that's just contributing more can be made its own entry.
  • Explain why it's a Dethroning Moment of Suck.
  • No Real Life examples including Executive Meddling. That's just asking for trouble.
  • No ALLCAPS, no bold, and no italics unless it's the title of a work. We are not yelling the DMoSs out loud.

  • kablammin45: Adventures in Odyssey is a great series, though this troper was left shaking his head at the episode "A Glass Darkly". Poor Trent Dewhite is unable to catch a break from his teacher Dr. Hawthorne, who goes from just an overly strict teacher to a borderline Sadist Teacher. First off, The Bully Rodney Rathbone starts a food fight in the cafeteria that everyone gets involved in (except Trent), then the teacher comes in, and lays all the blame on Trent (with the exception of Rodney, possibly) just because he was holding freakin jello that had gotten in his hair! That's not all, though, Trent gets detention, and Dr. Hawthorne won't even let Trent off when Trent explains that he has a very important meeting to get to. Any normal, sane teacher would at least lessen the severity of the punishment if that happens, but noooooo. Then when Rodney later tries to turn loose a bunch of bees in the teacher's car (which he's revealed to be allergic too later), Trent tries to get rid of them, then the teacher comes and blames Trent again, extending Trent's punishment even further. At the end comes a Shoot the Shaggy Dog, where Trent finally manages to call the people he was meeting with, but then they won't let Trent in because of him getting in trouble. To be fair though, Trent learns to believe something good can come out of something bad, which lessens the blow a little, but Dr. Hawthorne was still unbelievably harsh.
    • Ecojosh 1: The episode "Castles and Cauldrons" made me stop listening. Jimmy's cousin Len comes to town and introduces him to the world of role playing games. The entire story revolves around RPG's being a form of witchcraft. The players become the characters, gain supernatural abilities, contact spirits, and perform rituals that involve drawing blood. No RPG in the real world is anything like that. Role playing games are just games, and plenty of Christians see nothing wrong with them. But the writers of this episode either have never seen anyone play the game, or they just lied to further their agenda. As if this wasn't bad enough, Mr. Whittaker destroys Len's game, and this is seen as a good thing. Remember kids, if someone you know owns something you think is unGodly, you should destroy it.
      • Starshock: I agree that Adventures In Odyssey Jumped the Shark, but the Dethroning Moment for me was the Novacom story arc. It was too long, had far too many cliffhangers, and came out of nowhere. I never found out how it resolved because I gave up on it. Something else that irritated me was that it was more of a Soap Opera than their story arcs usually were. Then there were all the new characters, and that tone shift was just so bizarre.


  • Doctor Sleep: This article by Esquire Magazine. Now Michael Bay is by no means a creative or even decent filmmaker, but the way Ben Collins goes on about him crosses the line between criticism and flat-out insulting him just to be smug. Also, telling parents that letting their children experiment with drugs and fireworks is better than letting them see the new Ninja Turtles movie just comes across as malicious snark for the sake of it. You can see this in Collins' use of clichés such as "TMNT is a disaster porn corruption" and one paragraph that's basically "this movie will somehow ruin your childhood". A good critic would at least mention an alternate film coming out that season that would be more entertaining, but apparently Collins cares less about praising art and more about insulting hot topics. By not acknowledging true cinema, Ben Collins doesn't come across as the cultured man about town he obviously considers himself. He comes across as just another opinionated hipster loudly rebelling against what's popular for the sake of being noticed.



  • Privateer Man: A few years ago, a company called Mixamo released a program called Fuse via Steam, with a pretty big price tag. This program could be used to create unique character models in a variety of styles, and while some clothing options were slightly limited, the program was useful for everyone who wanted to easily create 3D characters for other animation programs like Source Filmmaker, Garry's Mod, Unreal Engine 4, and the like. Around 2014, Mixamo is purchased by Adobe, who makes Fuse free, and allows a preview version to be downloaded as part of their Creative Cloud service. Many people who purchased the program beforehand were angry, since they basically wasted money, but the change was mostly accepted, because the program was more accessible to people with a low budget, even though Adobe's support for the Steam version was essentially axed. Come December 15th, 2016, Mixamo announces that they have cut out the exporting options for Source Filmmaker, Garry's Mod, Dota 2, and Unreal Engine 4, with a very poorly explained and weak reason, and wasting the time of anyone who didn't already make all their needed assets for their projects, since they cannot go on except to use a program like Blender and perform a long, tedious and frankly painful process of conversion. The worst thing is, this update came completely without warning, and when it did, nobody was notified of it occurring, so people found out only when they logged into their Mixamo accounts and found that their hard work creating well-made characters for use in SFM was now completely wasted. It's little surprise why 95% of all Steam reviews for Fuse are now negative, including this Troper's. However, due to a lack of popularity or viral marketing for Fuse, it's unlikely that the protests of the outraged users will get even noticed by anyone, leaving Fuse, a program with a lot of potential to do excellent things, completely unusable for a large amount of it's userbase.
