Most Overused Rants on Deviantart

Ah rants.. You mostly see them on the first section of a user's DA Journal and Youtube. They bitch and moan about how such a problem occurs through DA, yet we see them everyday. Here's are the Top Ten most overused rants on Deviantart.

The Top Ten

1 Mary Sues

I hate Mary Sues/Gary Stus. But attacking the creator just for having a Mary Sue/Gary Stu is just petty and stupid.

Why can't there be a rant on HOME: Adventures With Tip And Oh?

Indeed a term that is made by butthurt fanboys - EdgyDoll510

Yes the classical lazy criticism of defying bad characters aka "Mary sues". Well since 2011, Mary sues had became a serious issue on DA. People were doing countless witch-hunts, warning, and constantly starting flame wars, if your character isn't developed like people want it to be. Now since this is 2017, people realized that the term is overused and I agree it needs to die now. Of course the term help us to prevent from making bad characters but simply, the completeness of that term never lasted. Of course there's always that uncertainty of knowing that term, and people will define it for you. For instance person A says :" what's a Mary sue? " and Person B with it's snobbish charms will say " Well a Mary sue is a blah blah blah perfect character Blah blah overpowered Blah..." Even if you're making characters, people will pop up rudely and say "Mary sue" without any hesitation. Honestly we have seen enough and know enough about Mary sues. For ...more - EdgyDoll510

2 Furries/Fetish Art

Keep the inflation and all the other fetishes private please. - Katildalover93

Here's a little something to fix this problem, and it's SO simple, you use NO effort. Just look at SFW Furry artwork and avoid NSFW Furry artwork. It's not hard.

3 Art/Recolor Thieves

I'm tired of these idiots. Why can't they come up with their own ideas? - Katildalover93

Ughh sometimes I'm tired of seeing journals like oh " Beware of this or Beware of That" Just report the guy already. No need to spread attention for Brownie points. You're an artist not some DA wannabe version of youtube heroes. - EdgyDoll510

4 Deviantart Users

Same goes to DA users, reporting someone for brownie points for attention on a Journal and not self reporting or self managing. - EdgyDoll510

20 Crossovers

The worst crossover ships would be the ones where Karel (Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade) is paired off with a villain or antagonist from another series.

Karel was never made to be an antagonist, and he was never a villain, either.

Karel may see every character as an opponent he wants to fight/kill at first, but this is just part of his character, and he joins the heroes' team and warms up to the heroes, leading him to his character development in the end. He never does this to any villains.


These awful crossovers is why it's been very difficult to find good fanart and fanfics of the Sword Demon-turned-Saint these days.

Besides that, I also hate the crossover ships involving Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic is not a womanizer and he doesn't need to be paired off with every fictional female that exists.

Sonic is more of the guy who loves adventure and may not be into romance. The closest he can get to a romantic interest would be either Amy, Sally, Blaze, ...more

21 Crossover Shipping

Easily the worst pairings ever. They're morally wrong and they're like Hollywood values, except this time for fictional characters.

22 Recast Memes
