Most Annoying Things In DeviantArt

DeviantART is a really awesome website about pictures and so on. But there's also a dark side of the. Let's take a look at it.

The Top Ten

1 Inflation fanart

Seriously, it's disturbing and confusing. I don't understand why this is a thing.

What's the point of this anyway? Do people just take a bathroom break and start drawing these while doing coke? - Katildalover93

If you're searching for your favourite female video game character, you'll find some disturbing inflation pictures of her. Really awkward. And not only inflation pictures. But also pregnant, giant feets, the REALLY horny snake Kaa hypnotizing her, vore and so on. Disgusting. - AtomicLugia

Some scratchers such as "skunkwindows3" hated inflation art. - JordanB

2 You can't delete a comment

It would be nice if you could - RedPanda5

You can't delete, but you can hide them.

Yeah, I wish you can delete comments. I hope they add that feature soon.

That is so annoying. I wish we could. - Powerfulgirl10

3 Finding pictures that don't match your search

Search for "gardevoir underwater" and you find a lot of stupid trainer cards that has absolutely nothing to do with that, what you are searching for. Quite ridiculous. - AtomicLugia

Yes! Finally someone pointed that out! Once I tried looking up "Welcome To The Wayne" and only about 3% of the whole search results are the ones I wanted too see. The rest of them are bad artworks of Nickelodeon shows (mostly Loudcest) and fanarts if Batman (because of the word "Wayne" maybe? ).

Yes, this can be so annoying at times...

Also happens on search engines.

4 The dumb search error

Too bad it isn't getting fixed in 2019 :(. - Sprightly - Sprightly

Instead of showing results I got this incredibly stupid error! Seriously, is this a dumb bug or is this meant to piss us of? - AtomicLugia

I got Error 404 after clicking on Tundran Territories fan art, and the site's creator(s) don't seem to be willing to remove it, what!?

5 Full view

May be a new feature but it's really annoying because the switches sometimes automatic to this mode. If you'll find a disgusting picture like inflation fanart, this 'cool' feature will show you this with FULL RESOLUTION. - AtomicLugia

6 People thanking you for the fave

It was fine for a while, but it's really irritating! I know people want to thank me for it, but sorry, I am not accepting anymore of these comments. - Katildalover93

This is called being nice.

It is not bad - RedPanda5

This actually deserves to be on this list. I got really irritaded (don't know what other word to use) when people constantly spammed me these comments like if I did it personally. At first I hide their comments and un-fave what I faved from them, but then I just ignored it.
I don't collect fanarts just to make the art creator happy. I just fave them because I think it's an amazing artwork I'd love to save in my collection of entertaining fanart that I don't wanna forget or needing a research to find the artwork again. I do NOT always I care about who drew the artwork, all I care is that I love the picture. It's complicated and kinda hard to understand, but yeah I'm smart just like that! I'm so... Shut Up!

If you're fine with people thanking you over favouring their stuff, that's great, but not everyone will be tolerant with these kind of reasons to be thankful, (not) sorry to say this, but the favers are honestly not even obligated to allow *Thanks for the Fave* comments in ...more

7 Images that has everything in their keywords

I searched for Peach, I found a picture of some hedgehog. I searched for Daisy, I found a picture of some hedgehog again. I searched for Rosalina, and I STILL found a picture of some hedgehog. - AtomicLugia

I want an art of ___, but then a picture of a potato appears...

Ah yes, the Sonic fandom is nuts. It's like they name their OCs after every fictional character you can think of.

That is so outrageous. - AinezoChan

8 Not having a PM

There is notes. - Katildalover93

There is a PM. It's called Notes.

That is literally frustrating. Many people rudely say "NO" when I kindly ask them to give me Core. And make me open commissions which I can't stand at all. - AinezoChan

It's within someone's rights to not spend money on giving you a Core. If you want a Core that bad, earn points through commissions. - AlestAL357

9 Almost all fanart is anime bishies

I don't have a thing against people who draw anime but most of the time, a western cartoon character is drawn in a bishie style just for the sake of eye candy. In this style, there is nothing unique about them as they all look the same.

I hate it when they turn manly characters into bishies. It makes them out of character for no reason. Why not accept them the way they are?

Even though I'm not against anime, it just takes over DeviantArt and makes anime overrated. - AinezoChan

Anime art can be good unless it's just hentai crap. - Swellow

10 Fetish artwork

Why can't they just go to Mistystuffer's website? Deviantart will be a better place if they go to Animexpansion instead

Can fetish art just get banned already

There is way too much fetish art - Mranonymously

Let's not go forgetting brain fetishism now - xandermartin98

? Prudes

Prudes ruin literally everything everywhere...

The Contenders

11 Blocking users doesn't make them invisible to you

Please just make them invisible. Because all of the people I block are people I do not want to hear from again. - Katildalover93

This would be better

It has changed after so many years - Getovait

blow me

12 Cuphead Fanart

Everything from the franchise and fandom are annoying.

Most of the fan art is good, but please watch out for r34 art...

Also, the game gets too much hate on here just because of it’s fandom. Same thing with BATIM on here. - IceFoxPlayz

13 Fan girls who ship characters with themselves in their art.

Jiminycricketfan007 is a major example of this. Not only she ships herself with a fictional character, but also a deceased voice actor who played said character as well. Ouch. Her unhealthy obsession has gone way too far to the point of attracting so many trolls. This is not a person to look up to or see as a role model to be honest. I hope she grows out of her nasty obsessions soon and start facing reality. It's fine to like an actor, actress or fictional character, but treating them as your lovers is not good behavior at all.

This is what every fanbase is full of - ElSherlock

Agree. - Katildalover93

These people really need to seek a therapist - BubblePops

14 The Loud House "Memes"

Loud Sisters Reacts to... - RedPanda5

Those memes are trash. - ShadowHawk18

Because there's a bunch of autistic men at age of 18 less or more who likes children's cartoon and posting garbage MS paint "memes" per minute or so.

@visitor-Just hope you know not all autistics are like that. That's all I'm gonna say.

This should be the most annoying thing in deviantart

15 "Please reply to this comment I need to keep my profile clean, so don't leave a new comment above"
16 You cannot disable comments on your profile

Oh yes. I had to write a notice to tell people to not post anything. So far its it's working. - Katildalover93

FFF... This is the very reason why I was harassed to the point of having false call outs written against me and my boyfriend (or my "boyfriend" according to people who hate me, liking to make it seem like I'm dating myself.) - TyrantKing

The disability to disable comments is what got me harassed to the point of leaving DeviantArt. I hate this site.

Yeah, and this just sucks. I wish this feature will be added soon, along with deleting negative comments.

Now that's just speciesism. - TyrantKing

I don't really get the point of the Llama Badge.

18 Rule 34

Rule 34 artists are so desperate to jerk off - BubblePops

Crossover Rule 34 is one of the worst of it.

Gross - RedPanda5

When you search for something without the tags "porn" or "rule34", you ALWAYS get porn instead of good fanart. - pootisgumball256

19 Friendly users who block you for stupid reasons

I met a mentally unstable, and rude woman on there (AliDee33, I like her art, but I do not like her), and a abuser (NostalgiaFandomChick).
I don't ever want to hear from them again. - Katildalover93

Xeshaire. She's anything but friendly. Report her. - TyrantKing

If you offend someone you'll not only get blocked, but all their friends will clique up against you as well. A lot snarky infancy on that site.

Makes me so glad I'm not on DeviantArt.

20 People who claim you're stalking simply because you visited their profile

You're just looking at art. Leave them alone. - Katildalover93

God, this is just so mean spirited. - AinezoChan

21 Being a user who gets banned

I used to be banned. - AinezoChan

22 Vore

How do people enjoy it, I don't understand. - Katildalover93

This should be first - RedPanda5

If this is supposed to be romantic or sexy it's not how eating a person and now he/she is turning into that person's poop
How's that romantic

I hate vore. I was writing a story about inflation and weight gain on quotev and I was searching for pics on google images of pics from DeviantArt to use for my character and a pic of Zelda vore cake up. - Ilovestephanie

23 People who think they are always right

You're not always right person. Stop treating your opinions as actual facts. - Katildalover93

Anyone who disagrees with them is seen as a moron. They act as if they are intellectually superior to people with different beliefs. Instead of being open to beliefs which are different from their own, they act like close-minded and shallow brats who are not capable of looking at something from someone else's perspective. And don't get me started on the rabid anti-theists and pro-choice fanatics. They think they are smart, but they are actually whiny, intolerant, and shallow.

The-Man-Of-Tomorrow is a perfect example.

This happens everywhere. Once I tried to explain to a guy on youtube that every fandom is cancer to some degree since he outright called a certain one cancer, and he would'nt listen to me or my opinion. Unfortunately you just have to deal with these people the best you can. - TheAlbinoWolf

24 Bendy and the Ink Machine Fanart

This and Cuphead is a bad reference to old cartoons.

25 Sonic fanbase

Infinite (Sonic Forces) is also getting an awful fanbase due to himself being an edgy villain, a stereotype I despise. It also doesn't help that he's a jackal, which happens to be one of the most misunderstood animals in the world because of how many times they've been villains in fiction.

Jake Paul: We are the #1 Fanbase.
Logan Paul: Shush, Jake.

Shadow, Rouge, Cream, Silver and Blaze have the worst fandoms of any Sonic character. Sally, too.

That's right these guys are stupid then the satam fan brats. Because they hate the Archie sonic comic they should ignore the comic's they want ian flynn Dead it not can't they also think he's a Nazi well no they are the Nazi

26 Child porn fan art

It's even worse when they say their aged up. They're just trying to avoid their art from being taken down.

This is how you ruin a fictional character - zirukurt01

What is wrong with these people who are creating these - jbella9000

True... just take a look at the South Park and Loud House fanbase

27 Fart fetishes

Ironically it 'stinks' less than the idiots who complain about a bodily function that everyone does.

Fart is gross,why the people like this? - RedPanda5

Like the fart fetishes of the Wii Fit Trainer. Disgusting. Can you say, G-R-O-S-S? Sheesh! - Katildalover93

Tackofetish Is The Worst Of This

28 Incest fanart

This dominates Frozen and Big Hero 6 art search results. No, one of the siblings being dead in the latter does not stop the incestuous shipping.

The Loud House has this type of fan art - ElSherlock

This problem has The Loud House written all over it.

Shipping Lincoln and Lynn JUST GROSS! - TinyToonsGirl45

29 Naked drawings

A bit of nudity is a normal thing when it comes to anatomy in art, but when it comes to the fetishes, it's at its worst. - Katildalover93

I personally think this should be higher than the mature content.

Most Of These Are In Mature Content

At least the one with Mature Content is A-OK. - AinezoChan

30 People making fanart of killing the character they hate

Johnny Test/Dora the Explorer/Peppa Pig/Modern Spongebob/Teen Titans GO! /Breadwinners/Sanjay & Craig Hatedom in a nutshell - RedPanda5

Or someone's fursona being killed. - TyrantKing

They're especially hypocritical about it, too. How come it's okay for them to kill Johnny Test, yet it's not okay for me to kill any character from Kingdom Hearts?

Hey this reminds me of the GoAnimate fanboys! - Katildalover93

31 Terrible MS paint work

At least they're better than these fetish art - ElSherlock

I use ibisPaint for all my digital art stuff. - IceFoxPlayz

Bad quality? yep. But there are artists who hate spending bucks on other art softwares. I've seen some awesome MSPaint art but only uses WacomPad and such. - zirukurt01

DA Muro is not a bad drawing program. Try using IbisPaint X or Medibang Paint! - Katildalover93

32 Crossover shipping

This is one of the biggest annoyances on not only the, but also the entire Internet. Crossover shipping is like kissing a random stranger for no reason, and that's not a good moral to teach your kids. (Same-series ships all the way! ) Here are two of the worst crossover ships that anyone can think of:

Sonic the Hedgehog x Fuli the Cheetah from The Lion Guard: People think they should be together because they're both fast. What? TLG sucks and Sonic is already torn in a same-series shipping war between Amy Rose and Sally Acorn, although some ship him with Rouge, Blaze and even *gasp* Elise. We just don't want to make this war worse.

Fox McCloud x Cream the Rabbit: A horrible idea for shipping because Fox is already with Krystal, or in the old comics, Fara Phoenix, and that Cream is not suited for romance and never had a romantic interest in Tails or anyone else in Sonic. Disney's Zootopia has made a fox and rabbit (Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps) to be a couple despite the fact ...more

One user on there makes crossovers from two kids shows that have nothing in common with each other. - Katildalover93

King Dice x Flippy
Eric Cartman x Mystique

Link X Peach is a terrible ship to me - ParkerFang

33 Death battles

The vs community is toxic, people are taking character battles to seriously who cares if one has a different opinion than yours on which fictional character would win in a fight.
Its not like you get paid to debunk or to prove your point to whomever it is when there are no true winners and losers in vs debating unless the battles are decided by the character's respective writers and creators.

This gets annoying over time... - RedPanda5

This is one of the most annoying things on the and another excuse for fans to compare different characters from different franchises together if shipping is not acceptable. Every time someone makes a Death Battle, it's about two characters that they think are similar such as Fox McCloud vs. Nick Wilde, rather than two characters that are rivals or enemies in their series such as, for instance, Mario vs. Bowser. Seriously, Fox is not like Nick. The Zootopia fandom should leave Star Fox alone if they can't understand the differences. I am especially worried if they would make a death battle that pits Nikki, Kaltag and Star from Balto against Shenzi, Banzai and Ed from The Lion King, people would root for Shenzi, Banzai and Ed, which are horrible characters and deserve to lose. The dogs in Balto are not ripoffs of the hyenas in TLK, their similarities are purely coincidental and the hyenas don't reform and help the protagonist like the dogs did in their film. Eating Scar doesn't mean ...more

Every one of these things looks like an awful MS Paint Job were you Copy Paste two images on a background - YourWaifuSucks

34 Doki Doki Literature Club! Fanart

Some are good, some are bad, depends of what you're doing - Xentrick-The-Creeper

Why does it exist anyway screw Monika and Monikans

35 Mature filter

It's actually good because it blocked a Wii Fit Trainer art where her pants were pulled completely off while getting tickled. I felt bad for the person who had to do that commission for someone. - Katildalover93

This thing is good - ElSherlock

I'm actually glad this exists. Without it, you would see many naked drawings.

I also SERIOUSLY agree. Without it, your life on this site will never be the same. - Powerfulgirl10

Actually, this is a good thing. There's a reason we don't want to see rude things... - Swellow

38 Religious people

What? There's nothing wrong with people believing in a deity. Just leave them alone. - TyrantKing

Why are they there? And no, I do not care what you believe in. The worst part is there are art full of them.

AND they ALWAYS get away with EVERYTHING. Wanting/wishing that non-Christians would die/be killed. I mean, COME ON. Is not that going a LITTLE TO FAR WITH YOUR RELIGION!? My these people are horrible...

Those Sonic Bible pictures get me every time. - Drewman1211

39 Shipping wars Shipping wars Shipping Wars is a reality television series that aired on A&E from January 10, 2012 to April 29, 2015. The show follows various independent shippers who have discovered that money can be made transporting large items that traditional carriers either cannot or will not haul.

Especially the whole shipping war involving Dusty from Balto III: Wings of Change. Dusty's official mate in the film is Ralph, the big sled dog of the team, yet fans want her to be with Kodi for some reason.

The bane of my existance! There's this one idiot on DA who keeps bullying and harassing people just because they prefer to ship Ennallora instead of FuntineEnnoxy. She even goes as far as to order people to stop drawing Ennallora. This idiot is a rabid FuntimeEnnoxy fan and a rabid Ennallora hater I wish she'd deactivate all her accounts on the internet,get off the web for good,and go admit herself to a mental hospital.

40 Deviantart staff/admins don't care what's going on

I second this. They won't remove call out journals or hate art despite them claiming it to be against the rules. Just shut down the site already. - TyrantKing

41 Shipping pictures

As long as they don't pair Fox McCloud up with Cream the Rabbit... That is the worst idea for a shipping ever.

Especially crossover shipping.

:me looking up Shadow the Hedgehog: Imma find some good pics! Yeah! (About 10 seconds later) me: EWW WHO SHIPS SHADOW WITH SHREK THAT'S SO GROSS!

Well, I've already given you some examples of annoying things on deviantart in my comment about adventure time fans in "most annoying fan bases":those drawings are all about finnceline (the "artist" with that weird nickname even drew some scenes from the fanfic I hate the most! ) apart from the last one which is about bubbline. How dared those people ruin the funniest, cuddliest and most tearjerking vampire sweetie ever?!?

49 Getting called out publicly

Call-out journals can affect on anyone's reputation no matter what the person has done and no matter how well the journal is well-written or not it could encourage people to escalate/attack these victims instead of blocking and ignoring them or reporting them without contacting them.

They're even against the rules. However, despite this the staff won't take them down if you report them. - TyrantKing

Getting called out or calling out on someone is never okay, especially if you or such never mean any harm. This is why I don't have a DeviantArt, so that I don't have to worry about drama or getting called out on anywhere.

50 Art theives

No matter how many years pass by in DA world I find users:
-Tracing screenshots and popular art/artists.
- recolors, butt loads of them.
-Frankin-shops of other artists work
-outright lifts of artists work from outside DA
-there are even instances of thieves selling the stolen art at conventions.
- subject and medium doesn't matter if you make it they will steal it.

Lots of good artists have left DA because of this on going issue. I even left for three years because a friend had his 3d work stolen and the admins took months to respond. Didn't want the same happening to me.

That's why I use a "MD♡" signature. I hate art thieves. Make your own art and be creative, or don't use the site. - Katildalover93

An art thief who traces over other people’s work is EKJr who constantly traces over JaviSuzumiya’s art. He is also a Clyde McBride worshipper unlike the majority of the fandom and he ships Clyde with literally everyone on the show.
