19 Arachnophobia (Fear of Spiders)

It's reasonable in places like Brazil and Australia, where it probably originated, so I wouldn't say Arachnophobia was all that weird. It wouldn't be reasonable in places like the UK, where spiders are harmless, but in tropical places, fearing spiders is rational. - PositronWildhawk

Call me a wimp, but I can't stand being around Spiders. Being afraid of bugs and Arachnids isn't even out of the ordinary when it comes to phobias either. - Rue

This is a very reasonable phobia

50 Nintendophobia (fear of Nintendo Video Games)

Many Hardcore Gamers have this phobia and it is kind of weird. I could understand the Virtual Boy but not the 64DD or the Wii U. If you Think Pokémon is racist then look at all these First Person Shooter Games which are racist to Arabs, Jews and Africans.The 64DD can easily be fixed using modern day software.
branches of Nintendophobia include Mariophobia,Wiiphobia,Zeldaphobia, Pikaphobia and Miiphobia.I liked a lot of Nintendo's games including the 64DD did not care about the Virtual Boy I own most of Nintendo's consoles including the Wii U. I do not own the 64DD and the reason why is because Nintendophobia is the most common video game related Phobia
