Top Ten Cartoons Ruined by Fanbases

We 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

1 Steven Universe Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

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

I hate how Non-binaries and feminists get angry when Men like this show, I mean you're not the one who chooses the Target audience, And what if that show was meant for women, What's the problem if men loved it?

2 My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated fantasy television series developed by Lauren Faust, produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver . Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and more.

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 - fazwe

3 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

Watch this get in the top 3 along with the Steven Universe fan base and the Bronies. We can't all forget about how that Szechuan Sauce fiasco went down at McDonald's a few months ago. I respect Rick and Morty to a very high degree, but I never thought its fan base could be THIS toxic and cringe-worthy with all its pretentious claims that "you'd have to have a high IQ" to understand Rick and Morty and overexposure of memes respectively. But hey, at the end of the day, Rick and Morty is still a great show. A fan base doesn't necessarily determine the quality of a show or any other form of entertainment media. But that doesn't mean we can't admit all the wrongs this fan base has gone to. To think the police had to get involved in this stupidity once the fans started throwing protests over Szechuan Sauce... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Gravity Falls fandom actually got me into this show.

Best Show Ever, Worst Fanbase Ever - 445956

4 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity more.

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.

5 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 11th season. The show more.

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.

Well at least I saw a horror versions of this childhood show.

Complete ruined by its fanbase - fazwe

6 Teen Titans Go

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 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.

7 Ren & Stimpy Ren & Stimpy The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

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.


Why would anyone ship Ren and Stimpy?
They were NEVER gay!

8 Total Drama Total Drama Total Drama is a Canadian animated comedy television series which is a homage and parody to the conventions commonly found in reality television.

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 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

9 Adventure Time Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape more.

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

Nah, this show rocks. - 445956

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

Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese more.

The shipping ruin the original plot.

I don't think that the fans ruined it. The fans are just idiots. - Miauzer

It is now overrated.

The Contenders

11 Star vs. the Forces of Evil Star vs. the Forces of Evil Star vs. the Forces of Evil is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation.

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

So much Starco worship, while Jackie is continually bashed by the majority despite doing nothing wrong (oh but the manipulative Tom is okay because he's hot)

I honestly have not seen one fan of this show that doesn't like the "fanart" of it

12 Teen Titans Teen Titans Teen Titans is an American animated television series created by Glen Murakami, based on the DC Comics characters of the same name.

Especially when they hate on Teen Titans Go! - DynastiNoble

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

13 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

Only the XY fanbase really sucks. The rest isn't that bad.

The rp pokemon fanbase suck. They all need to die

14 The Loud House The Loud House The Loud House is an American animated television series created by Chris Savino for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, to which he survives as the middle child and only son in a large family of eleven children. more.

There is so much incest loving fans in this fan base. This is a kids show about living with a large family, not a kid with a harem!

Should be number one, every time you google it, you are bound to see some rule 34 - MrMonkey

15 South Park South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network.

The new sonic fandom. - lesanae

This show has fans?

Saldy it dose

17 Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir

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.

18 Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated television series produced by Nickelodeon. The show is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig.

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? - lolololololol
