Don't even get me started. And they're everywhere. And I dunno why, but they have a knack for turning everything they see into ponies. I've even seen some of my favorite band members turned into ponies.

Just, why. :icondeadfoxplz:

I don't think any one fandom is really worse than another- my dislike for each fandom is based solely on the quantity of a fandom's artwork that pops up on dA's front page and on my Tumblr dashboard. So right now that's MLP and Homestuck.

I think creepy fandoms suck.

Everything on dA here seems pretty normal. I think it's the people of the fandoms that are the worst, not the fandom itself, which isn't anything serious.

Everyone's said Furries, MLP and Hetalia.

I'll just delve a bit deeper, and say things a bit less obvious.

1) Anime in general.
This one specifically because of the STYLE. It's a fandom on it's own by having so many people cooing over it that it has lost all of its charm for me (and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one). I think that anime-style is the worst one here. It soaks all the originality from a character to see them being remade in the most bland and overused style I've seen on here.

2)Pewdiepie.
Now, I have no issues with Felix (Pewdiepie's real name, guys) EXCEPT for his fans. Pewdiepie is fine, he's got talent as a Let's-player, and he's quite funny, but his FANDOM. His fandom is nothing but Yaoi-Fictionists that depict him with Cry,(ChaoticMonki, if you prefer)or Tobuscus. When they're not eyes deep in their own steamy-fiction of any combination of other variables playing in (even ending in the three of them + whatever monsters stumble into them) they're disobeying Pewdie's one golden rule: To be a Bro.

They claim to represent him, and deviate from him in the most radical way I've seen in a long time. It's sad that they cannot even rally behind their creator. At least "Bronies" could manage to do that.

(This next one is more of a happenstance, but happens enough that it became a pseudo-Fandom.)
3) Mary-Sue-Characters.
These are all of those fan made characters that are from Television, Internet-Shows, Manga, Cartoons, or whatever other media. More specifically, those that break what made the show good, and generally tie the character to the main characters, break all believability of the main-cast by having them act for the Mary-sue uncharacteristically, or have the Mary-sue be so overpowered that nothing can stop them.

Basically, a fan-made character in a story that break all relevance of the story.
(A DragonBall Z character with Power-level of 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 would do the trick.)


If I need to explain in further detail, just ask.
We're fine explaining more.

Enjoy my contribution to this list of awful!

It was just an example.

Like a Master Cheif that could quad-weild infinite ammo rocket-launchers and has x12 Oversheild infinitely.

They're really fun to joke about, cos they're silly, but it's sad that people actually think that the over-topped characters they make that take all of 8 seconds to make up would actually be accepted as 'Amazing and wonderful'

I would rather make a crippled, ugly pig with a shotgun than an over the top master chief.

I mean when you think of Alien Resurrection it's not Ripley or the tough guy with the dreadlocks you think about, it's the awesome wheelchair guy.

And the reaaaaly dumb thing about the aliens failing their basic instincts (Purity and expansion) by making a transbreed-Queen, an alien that SHOULD have been murdered by the other aliens.

Yes, but they were born from her so they would have been transbreed themselves.

Yes. Drones, Warriors, Runners ETC are all transbreed.

Face-huggers, Praetorian or no, Praetorians, and Queens are all Pure-breeds.

Should there ever be an impure or Transbreed Queen (The PredQueen comes to mind) the others would kill it, or die in the attempt.

I hated what they did with the prequel. Adding a precursor Alien race is one of the biggest cliques out there in the modern world. It doesn't fit at all, making them a biological weapon fits, but it would have been more realistic to make them either a human, or an alien races', mistake.

My Little Remake (Pony), seriously I just don't understand what's so popular about a re-made cartoon from the 80's? It's even more creepier that guys are into it...^^;

I would say the odd pictures of the people with zombie faces or death/suicide stuff. I just don't understand personally.

Homestuck, I've never seen it but it looks stupid to be honest.

Furries a little too. Even though one of my OC's is one, which actually he's more of a fantasy character/fairy tale character so I consider him a little different. I don't mine the cute ones, but the odd people dressing up in cosplay dog suits? O_o? Wouldn't that get hot? Oh and yeah, I'm tired of seeing odd female furries with large chests too..>.>;;

Personally I love animals, so I like furries a little, but mostly the G/PG-rated cute ones and such. Not the furries that are basically steriotyped for porn and usually are ^^; I'm so glad for mature blocker on here actually.

Oh and nude photos. (which is another reason I have the mature blocker on) I just don't get what's so interesting about naked people, or women wearing skimpy nightware posing sending off messages like "I'm desperate." =P

Blah, blah blah..

Pretty much, I don't mind the poke'mon stuff, or the sonic stuff. Yet I kind of wish people thought outside of the box more sometimes. ^^;

Furry-lovers. I can't begin to tell you how horrified I am whenever I see a purple tiger-faced woman with size-MM breasts and/or a butt the size of a beer keg wearing a string bikini (at most) on the front page.

Don't get me wrong; there's a lot of good-looking furry art out there. It's just that the only ones that get any attention are the ones catering to fetishes. I'm especially disturbed when ther faces are not anthronized or cartoonized, thus looking exactly like the animal they're based upon. As far as I'm concerned, that crosses the line into bestiality.

Okay, my rant is over now.

I've disliked Naruto since I was a kid, so that's one.
MLP is alright but I can only take seeing so many ponies.
I can't stand hetalia.
I tried Homestuck but I found it boring, and the fans that I know in real life are some of the most obnoxious people I've ever met, so that ruined any chances of liking it for me.
Minecraft is okay, but after a while it gets boring so I don't see the big deal.
Sonic. Need I say more?
Some of that furry stuff can be scary and out of hand, too.

There are crazy people in every fandom, though.

I've never liked Hetalia, mostly because of the people I've met who do like it. They tried to get me into it, but it never appealed to me. And their obsessive, obnoxious behavior kind of put me off. I've tried watching it, but it just isn't my thing.

A lot of people don't like negative comments. I can understand why the original artist might get upset, but the people who chose to reply weren't even the ones who drew it. I never understood why they feel the need to stand up for an artist who could defend themselves if they so choose.
