Top Ten Cartoons Ruined by FanbasesWe all know fanbases can just majorly kill what's good or what's left of a show. From the annoyance of odd shipping and the fans giving too much praise for a show, fanbases are always there to have outsiders shunned from the show. I hate to blame fanbases, considering I'm part of most of them, but we all know when our love for a show can sometimes get a bit out of hand. I don't want to be rude here, but we all know they exist.
The Top Ten
I'm not gonna lie and say that I don't like this show or even say I don't have a favorite character, but the majority of the fanbase just downright awful. I'm not gonna get TOO detailed with what the more adult-like things most fans think about when watching Friendship is Magic, but I do know that it's enough for me to be ashamed to even say I like the show. Thanks to this, I can't say I enjoy this show without someone saying that I get a kick from seeing a pony or a stuffed animal.
Adding to this, the shows okay but some people treat it like it's the most prized possession in the world. Some characters are great when compared to the lack of others, but the characters still have massive flaws in them. The show itself isn't perfect either. If anything, it's pretty mediocre, but everyone treats it like it's super special.
The show creators actually listen to them sometimes
And it makes things stupid, making a character doctor who? Stupid, making two characters life together JUST because they both like music?! Its ridiculous, most the fans are trying to make all the characters lesbians, and hypersexualizeing everything. It was much better when they disregarded the internet and their retarded "headcannon"
BRONIES! BRONIES?! Its scary bros into ponies!
Seriously, not every bronies are that bad - fazweV 6 Comments
Although less creepy than Bronies and Fallers, they make up for it by the way a lot of them lash out at any other fandom that tries to interact with them. Bronies, Uncle Grandpa fans, even the show's own producers have been bullied by the more rabid part of the fanbase.
Like Adventure Time fans, they think that their show is the only cartoon to have lesbians, and even when characters are described as being straight, male, or cisgendered will insist they aren't and harass any of their fans that think otherwise.
I feel sorry for any for any sane fans of the show. Steven Universe is pretty decent, but it's being ruined by it's fans fast.
This should definitely be number one. Name another fanbase that actively goes out of its way to get people to kill themselves because they think it's funny.
The Steven Universe fandom ruined the show. The Gravity Falls fandom didn't. The Steven Universe fandom pushed someone into suicide for not making a character fat enough. I'd be embarrassed to watch the show! I'd rather be in the Gravity Falls fandom, thank you very much

Most people who've hanged on to the show past season 3 have already since then left. Anyone who still hung around during seasons 4 still managed to hang on. But the people who've hanged around since then start to freak me out. Don't get me wrong, I like a handful of the episodes in newer seasons, but let's be honest here, what does this show really have anymore? Half the fanbase is children, which I wouldn't mind if they'd just stay off the internet.
Okay you can get mad at me for hating children, but when I hear them saying the best episodes are when Patrick put his best friend through hell while stuck in a wringer and when Squidward get's the blame for reading SpongeBob's diary while everyone else did it, there's no doubt that someone would be sick of it. I understand that most times children don't fully comprehend what's really going on in shows, we've all been there, and we know that nothing extremely bad can come from a kids show, for the most part, but you can't tell me ...more
I hate when fans try to tell me it just gets better with every season.
Complete ruined by its fanbase - fazwe
Oh look another fandom I'm in! Okay, I'm just gonna say that Gravity Falls is a show that widely revolves around theories but some theories are so bizarrely stupid that it just makes me laugh. The show itself isn't all that bad, overrated in some cases, but some fans just go way overboard when they predict what may happen in the next episode. I understand that Gravity Falls is the type of show that makes you want to speculate with what's coming up, but I feel as though most fans are just doing the writer's work here. I enjoy a few theories every here and there but I think we should all calm down and watch the actual show.
Let's also not forget the other portion of the fanbase that ships a certain duo in the Gravity Falls world. Pincest. In case you don't know, Pincest is the shipping between Mabel Pines and Dipper Pines, who are related (Sister and Brother to be exact). Shipping is a serious problem in many shows, this itself is a prime source. This part of the fandom makes the ...more
I am a huge gravity falls fan. I really, honestly think it deserves this much praise and critical acclaim because it is all true. So while it isn't overhyped, and I usually adore the fans (they're some of the best fans you'll ever meet), I have to admit that pinecest is... Seriously messed up and I don't even WANT to know what dipper goes to taco bell is. This show simply draws in too wide of an age range, its probably impossible for sexually frustrated older males or pre pubescent teens who are going to creep and ruin the fun. Also, some theories are kind of... Deranged - keycha1n
I love this show but the fan fictions why? It's just like it is for animaniacs. Never read yakko and dot's weekend and never read dipper goes to taco bell - YakkoWakkoDot
I personally like gravity falls but the fanbase gets a little crazy with the wild conspiracies and the messed up fanfics.V 3 Comments
They act like Rocko can't even compare to R&S. At best, R&S is actually more or less evenly matched with some of Rocko's "worst" (read: least great) episodes. - xandermartin98
*cough cough* R34 *cough cough*
I think it's because of the people who created the cancerous, cringe inducing "Rempy".
Ugh. I mean I'm not against the gay community or anything but it's just stupid to ship both Ren and Stimpy.
They make a better duo, then a couple, in my opinion.
IT'S ALL THAT GOD DAMN REMPY FANART!
Why would anyone ship Ren and Stimpy?
They were NEVER gay!
I couldn't stand this show for awhile, but it grew on to me. That was until is saw the enormous amounts of shipping that was in the show. The people working on the show probably even know of all the ships and which group of fans will hate which character. Some characters that haven't even seen each other also have been paired up like it was some kind of love story.
Speaking of the characters, things don't get any better. In each new cast of characters, we always seem to have those four characters that won't just stay away from the camera. At season 3, many of the characters received a huge derailment. The "cool" goth girl turned into a goody-two shoes who tried justifying taking a boy who was just reunited with his girlfriend, everyone in one team was only in there to get kicked out in the next few episodes, and don't even get me started on the host.
Since then, we've got two more new casts. Each of the new cast seems to have a "main" antagonist, a ...more
The fanbase of this show really consists of people shipping other characters. Nothing else. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
The romance ruined the show
I think the fanbase of people like me can be OK, but some are totally overly obsessed with this show, even making random shipping couples that won't happen (Noah x Cody, anyone? ). And there's those who make a war over Duncan x Gwen and Duncan x Courtney. I prefer Duncan x Courtney, but I don't bash fans of the opposition like some do. - Turkeyasylum
I can not think of a better example.
I don't mind bronies, or fallers, but Adventure Time fans can range to being regular people to downright obnoxious.
First of all, they act like everything about the show is groundbreaking in some way. I just don't get it. Yes its creative, and it is witty, but its not that ground breaking. The post apocalyptic setting is cool and all, but stop acting like it revolutionized animation somehow!
Also fans tend to look at something obvious and say how "deep" it is. Its like a character can just mutter "life is hard" and suddenly the fan base acts like they just cracked the code of life. More often than not, the real meaningful moments are overlooked.
There's also the shipping. I know all fan bases do it, but what's bad about Adventure Time is that there's a point where it looks like the show was hijacked by the fans, and it began to focus on love interests. Nice going guys.
Also just because ...more
Only 6 words to all those people who wrote, drew and/or liked those fanfictions and drawings I know:stop ruining my precious love marceline. To all those people who would like an elucidation:you can find some examples of those fanworks I absolutely hate in "most annoying fan bases".
I'm a part of the fandom, and what really ticks me off is that people care more about Fionna and Cake than Finn and Jake. Also, I can't stand all the anime fanart. The art style is what made the show great, why did you have to ruin it with your animu trash? - PhoebeThunderman
This show actually has a fan base?
That show sucks but the fan base is toxic take from me I posted this
This shows fandom is probably just a bunch of little kids so it's not really that bad...in a few months they'll get over it and find something good to watch
One of the greatest bastardizations of DC Comics lore ever put to screen.V 5 Comments
The shipping ruin the original plot.
It is now overrated.
I'm in this fandom and there is so much sin in this fandom it's ridiculous. Ask any member of it about the initials boyfriend and you'll see how messed up this fandom is.
This should be #1
I honestly have not seen one fan of this show that doesn't like the "fanart" of it
Just look up areablog, it's self explanatory.V 2 Comments
Both the hype and the ending killed this anime for me. - PerfectImpulseX
Especially when they hate on Teen Titans Go! - DynastiNoble
I love this show, yes, but even if I can't stand the reboot, I don't attack fans of it. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
Yes it has been ruined by their fan base
Some of them all the fans of TTG to kill themselves that's so not cool
8 year old boys with hundreds of Pokemon cards. That's the fanbase. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
Only the XY fanbase really sucks. The rest isn't that bad.
The rp pokemon fanbase suck. They all need to die
The new sonic fandom. - lesanae
This show has fans?
Saldy it dose
Unoriginal and awful, I agree why does it have so much fans. It basically is another double life superhero cartoon like Kim Possible, Danny Phantom, Jake Long, and Randy Cunningham. Difference? It has nothing good out of it. The main villain is basically the sorcerer and the stormy weather is basically Vortex from DP. The illusion fox is basically Zoroark. And their powers are lame. Spy, ghost, dragon, and ninja are cool, but ladybug and a cat, wow. I've seen one episode and it was stupid. So overrated. Why is it so popular and fans whine that its "underrated". I respect fans' opinion and apologize if you are offended by this.
Couldn't get through one episode of this awful show, I don't know why it even has so many fans.
Okay, this just my opinion. I like this show but the hatebase on this show are much worse. It hated just because it looks cliche and unoriginal. I give you a question, is Danny Phantom unoriginal? Is Danny Phantom is looks cliche? Is Danny Phantom fanbase are cancerous? Just go to my lists about annoying things about Danny Phantom fans. This show is actually really good. Just look the fighting scenes when Ladybug and Cat Noir fighting Climatika/Stormy Weather. About the fanfics and OCs, is not really bad, but, the fanbase on this show are nice to chat. If you always despising the fanbase, check out Danny Phantom fans on Worst Nick Shows page 11 and they always get butthurt but you always think this show has awful fanbase, but, how about Danny Phantom? Crazy butthurt Danny Phantom fangirls. - ChatNoirFan18
No...this show doesn't have fans and if it does then I have lost faith in humanity...not really but that would be pretty bad
This show wasn't even good to begin with - WickedWeavile
There are fans of this crap? - DCfnaf
There are fans for this? - lololololololV 1 Comment
Talked about this twice now and I'll do it again...TECHNOLOGY DOESN'T MEAN RIPOFF!
I am hearing a lot of this show has a bad fan base but I have not met one bad fan. All fans get crazy and I have never seen a fan send death threats or hate on a hater just for hating the show. Heck! I barely even see them except on videos when it is relevant, like an episode, a top ten best cartoons,etc..
Ruined by the crazy fangirls and a mary sues OCs. What's a good thing about this. I don't know why so many people like this crap, Ghostsbusters rip-off and looks like garbage show. - ChatNoirFan18
Why obsess over a show that ended over a decade and a half ago? Besides, ZADR will never happen because the creator said that Zim is dead.
Zadr and the cosplayers...ugh - PhoebeThunderman
