As a fandom veteran, from my experience even the smallest fandoms can have their own breed of village idiots. Large fandoms tend to have disproportionate amounts of idiotic fans simply because there's so many people in the fandom to begin with that the annoying minority appears to be more visible than the silent, sane majority. In smaller fandoms, sometimes you just get one person or a group of people causing all the fandom trouble, and everyone else just wants them to piss off and leave them alone. :unimpressed:

Like for example this scumbag troll called Falicron who attacked and frame several people in the Transformers fandom on Discord.

I think the best way to deal with the assholes in fanbases, is to stay away from them because they are ones are trying to make the mature ones look bad.

Same here.

Also the Cuphead x Bendy ship physically hurts to look at.

Exactly. Tom and Edd’s rabid fans never shut up. So video game character shippers seems to purposely physically irritate us.

everything has pros and cons.

I'll admit, I hate Twilight but I won't hate anyone for liking it as long as they are tolerant of different opinions. I have met plenty of bad fans and good fans from the Twilight fanbase. Even though I have trust issues with Twilight fans now, I still managed to find sane Twilight fans who acknowledge the flaws in Twilight.

Okami fandom- The Kurow fanbrats who hate Waka because he made the former to be used as a seal for the main villain, which would kill both of them (Would you rather have darkness and demons rule the world?)

Xenoblade fandom- The Melia fans...nuff said

Mario fandom- The Luigi fangirls

Vore fandom- The vore caption freaks and the fempreds

Smash fandom- People that hate characters can be assholes about it

This is true.
There are positive and negative sides of a fandom.

Oh god do i know about this.

I'm in quite a few fandoms and boy oh boy have I met some baaaaad eggs.

fnaf fandom- the people that constantly argue about genders and theories

undertale fandom- the people that bash other fandoms and think the game is superior

steven Universe fandom- even though I haven't been in there that long, I can see that there are some real judgemental indiciduals.

I'm sort of used to it by now... but I always salvage the moment when I find the lovely forgiving and creative people.

I find them very intolerant of any artist who is not Thom in general. And they're pretty nasty to those artists' fans, IMO.

People act like it's 'unusual' to see cringe-worthy things on fanbases.

I've met so many good and bad people in the TF2 fandom.
Thankfully, more nice than mean, so that's good. Fine enough.
