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
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
This should be number one on the other cartoons with worst fandoms list. - AliciaMaeV 13 Comments
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.
This show is definitely ruined by the fanbase! The fanbase tries to find ship on anything, no matter what the character is. And some bronies also make pony porn! I was shocked, when I saw that, but it was real... They want to have sex with horses, gross! The show was ruined by Season 5 onwards...
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"

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

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

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
There's no such thing as pre movie or post movie, spongebob is spongebob
I hate when fans try to tell me it just gets better with every season.

This show actually has a fan base?
That show sucks but the fan base is toxic take from me I posted this
The fandom is mostly made up of retarded little kids. In my experience the adult fans of it are mature about the show and respect others decisions. At least it is cleaner than most other fandoms
The show actually has a rather large fanbase, but it's the show itself that is bad, not the fanbase. In fact, the haters are often times worse in that they bash people just for liking the show (sounds like the SAO hatedom) - KalloFox34V 9 Comments
I as obsessed with this show for about 2 years when I was in middle school, but I stopped watching it completely after witnessing the atrocities that "fan artists" draw. The Loud House is a great show, but the fandom almost completely ruins it. I had to endure stuff like Loudest, and NSFW art of the Loud kids! Like, oh my god! They're children! Some of that stuff still traumatizes me to this day! Literally the first result I got after Googling "The Loud House Fan Art" was "Loud House Fan Art 18+", and the thumbnail for the video was Leni in a bikini! Another thing that sucks about this fandom that few people talk about are the people I like to call 'Lincoln Justice Warriors', people who believe Lincoln is being abused by his family. These people often complain about moments in which Lincoln doesn't get his way, or one of his sisters mildly teases him, and go online to rant about it. Some of them even wish incarceration or death upon his parents and sisters! Things got even worse after ...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
The fandom is horrible, they draw so much porn of the characters that it even outnumbered spongebob’s porn! They draw disgusting incest fan art and support incest ships even between TODDLERS, BABIES AND EVEN THE PARENTS! There are also plenty of incest porn comics featuring underaged characters too. The Steven universe fanbase is worse but The loud Houses’s fandom is also terrible in its own rights.V 2 Comments
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)
Most of the fandom consists of Starco shippers who whine about Jackie existing. - AliciaMaeV 8 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!
Whoever put this here, thank you. This fandom is almost never mentioned when it comes to toxicity, and it needs to be.
50 percent of this fandom treats the satire like the Word of God, which is stupid, because the offensiveness is supposed to be a joke. This causes them to think as racist, sexist, homophobic, and horrible as possible. They end up hating women, Jews, etc because they can't tell when South Park is being satirical or serious.
The other 50 percent are yaoi fangirls. South Park themselves even pointed out that this is a bad thing in Season 19 with the episode "Tweek x Craig", but the fangirls didn't stop. Matt and Trey accidentally made it worse by making a confirmed gay couple within the kids. Plus one of the most popular ships are between the two characters who are known for hating each other to the point of attempted murder. Just... why? Oh, and you can't forget about the shippers who draw these kids having sex! They're 10 years old, what? "Aging them up" isn't an ...more
Instead of treating South Park like the juvenile, sometimes hilarious cartoon that it is, the fanbase treats the show like prophecy. This show can't poke simple fun at anything anymore without fans thinking that the fun-poking is some sort of call to arms. SP's satire of women in comedy a couple of seasons ago backfired so hard that SP fans still have pretty horrific views towards women, especially female comedians, especially Amy Schumer, who is now one of the most hated people on the planet, why? SP fans may be obsessed with the fact that Family Guy is apparently for the low IQ, but hey at least Family Guy fans are a hundred times nicer.
South Park is a typical example of a cartoon ruined by fanbase. A single badly done episode which praise yaoi instead of bashing it is so fan enough for making the fanbase completely toxic.
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
I liked the first few seasons then it got hella repetitive
The romance ruined the show
NoCo is too muchV 1 Comment
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
And it all started with the Rule 63 episode. - AliciaMae
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? - PhoebeThundermanV 2 Comments
Only the XY fanbase really sucks. The rest isn't that bad.
Most overrated anime of all time. This should replace MLP on this list. - OnyxDash
The rp pokemon fanbase suck. They all need to die
I'm familiar with this fanbase and here are the reasons why I hate this fanbase genwunners worshipping the 1st gen, wanting their precious Misty back in the anime if you want to see Misty back then I suggest you watch the old series, look I don't care about Misty the only reason is I don't care about her is she treated ash's caterpie poorly if you like her that's fine but all I'm saying is if you want to see her again just go watch the old the series and leave the people that despise or are neutral with Misty alone (I'm talking to you genwunners,) people wishing death on other female characters I know people that wish death on other female characters but mostly Dawn, saying which Pokémon season sucks and worshipping Ash to be great well here's this not every Pokémon season going to be perfect! And defending/worshipping an overhated Pokémon starter to the death
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.
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
Ok, as you may know I LOVE the original Teen Titans, and sometimes I couldn't stop watching it but this fandom is just slowing me down. Actually what really cuts it is the Teen Titans Go! haters as they are so annoying that you can't go ANYWHERE without seeing at least ONE hater. For starters, they call the show offensive names such as: Teen Titans No!, Toddler Titans, Toddler Titans Go! and Toddler Titans No!. Like I said it is called TEEN Titans GO!. Plus not only that, they shove their TTG hate into the throats of TTG! fans and Cartoon Network at the same time! Who does that? WHO?! And the reason they complain is because in USA, CN air Teen Titans Go! like, let's say... 900 times. But that doesn't happen in Ireland or the UK. I live in Ireland. Also sorry, TeenTitansGoSucks, but your list "Top Ten Reasons Why Teen Titans Go! Should Get Cancelled" is just full of dumb AND stupid reasons. I know you shouldn't have left but next time when you come back, TRY to respect opinions, OK? ...more
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.
Definitely should be #1 especially when the elitism was born in 2005. - ShadowHawk18
Should be number one.
I know millions of people are fans of this show, but I never knew this show has a bad fandom.
Most of the fandom is made of okay people. But the bad side of the fandom is just awful! - AliciaMae
The new sonic fandom. - lesanae
The show's fanbase mostly good. But the bad side? It's pure cancer. Especially on Tumblr. I hate the fact that the people there thinks Richard is a bad husband to Nicole and that they always insist on Nicole being a lesbian! And they won't stop bashing on the show's creators because of the shippening episode even though it wasn't mocking fanarts and fanfictions, it was just a tribute. Honestly I think the fanbase there are SU fanbrats who happen to love the show. Ugh... Tumblr ruins everything!V 2 Comments
This piece of crap has fans?
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
There are fans of this crap? - DCfnaf

Yes, this show has fans, and I happen to be one of them. - KalloFox34V 3 Comments
Is there people that like this car heap.

I guess the fan base is the grounded series
GoAnimate is hilarious because it's just so bad... - KalloFox34
Talked about this twice now and I'll do it again...TECHNOLOGY DOESN'T MEAN RIPOFF!
Yeah I'll never understand why some Dexters Lab fans always think that Johnny Test is a ripoff Dexters Lab first of all I don't even watch Johnny Test and second haven't they ever heard similarity I bet not it's like saying Dexters Lab is a ripoff of Jimmy Neutron but they're both good shows again, I don't care about Johnny Test this was just an example That's why I prefer Dexters Lab and you're right, 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..
Sonic X has been ruined by various fandoms, big time. It especially disgusts me that fans think that the KnucklesxRouge ship is canon because of this show when it was never canon in any of the Sonic games, comics or shows (Knuckles and Rouge are rivals, and even if Rouge flirts with him, Knux doesn't like her back).
There are at LEAST 50 hate sites for Chris Thorndyke.

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
Kim Possible all the way! Take that, Anna from Frozen!
They actually made a show of this?
Yes they did. It's better than the game, but I hate Knuckles in this and Sticks isn't the best character ever. - DCfnaf
This show has a fanbase?
Pretty sure this crap doesn't even have a fan base... And if it does, then its members are probably no older than five or six.
Yes in fact most of it's of fans are 7 year olds that can't take an opition
How? How did it get a fanbase?
Both the hype and the ending killed this anime for me. - PerfectImpulseX
Why did they have to ship CJ with Thomas?
Good thing I'm not a fan of that show I've heard that the fandom's actually awful that's why I prefer "Dexters Lab" if you like "Powerpuff girls" that's fine
Most fans are nice, but them shipping the PPG with the RRB gets annoying really fast. - AliciaMae
I know right most of the fanfics suck, I personally don't mind fans of this show, they are way better than mlp fans. I am a fan of the show, but the fanfics suck.
Ever since Michael Bay made those movies, people don't give a damn about Transformers.
Fanbase or not. The Lion Guard, as well as The Lion King, are both disgusting pieces of dog dung to begin with. I hate them.
The Lion King is not a classic and it deserves to be hated and boycotted as much as possible.
The Lion King is a wonderful classic, so it scares me to know what movies you DON'T consider to be "disgusting pieces of dog dung."
He has an opition and you to respect that
Honestly With people shipping Arnold and Helga together
And wanting to bring back The Jungle movie is starting to get annoying and for one thing the creator's not going to bring back the Jungle movie and he's not going to make Arnold and Helga end up together and to be honest I'm actually glad that Arnold didn't end up with Helga
