Most vicious fanbases? Most Loud mouthed?

Post by Admiral Breetai » Tue Feb 07, 2012 7:53 pm

as a vs debater I'm sure we have all encountered the worse of the very worse of all fandoms and many of you look to have been doing this as long as I've been alive (kidding, kidding) so I ask of you all

in your experience? pick a top five..which fanbases are the most vicious? as in the ones that would actually do something..or try something

and which top five are the most loud mouthed..made up of essentially crazy internet tough guys who'd rant on and on?

it should be noted that I'm sure our lists only include the craziest elements of the fandom and not overall of course so any one reading who gets offended needs to lighten up

I'll start on my list

Most vicious

1, Twilight they've actually burned down a local film critics house as of the release of breaking dawn and there are numerous acts of violence reported...One girl was humiliated in a vs debate Edward vs Mace Windu and she took pictures of her cut arms as a result and posted them,..on our forum to show us "what we did" by her favorite character loosing

2, Naruto fans..compromised seemingly of 12-16 year old mental patience after they loose an argument they'll do anything from threatening your life..to the lives of your families..too in one case posting pictures of themselves burned with a heated spatula..attempting to hang themselves..general all around legit suicide and self harm as a response to loosing debates

3, SDners if half the things Darkstar and others have said about them are true..they're capable of some real cruelty. In my debates with them I've never been threatened just made fun of allot (and to be fair I dish it out ten times worse then I take it ) but you old timers have some stories to tell about them that just boggle the mind

4, Dragon Ball Z fanboys - the most ardent and demented of this fanbase has done everything from posting pictures of dead children..to spamming gay porn as a means to distract you from when their loosing arguments..I've seen entire forums shut down due to their antics...and The Phenom Brigade verses Wongs pack of maniacs was said to be one of the nastiest trollfests ever

5, DC fans..Superman fans especially..can get..well to the point that they hire someone to mess you up 4chan style really

loud mouths

1, Image fans get really loud and heated (though most of them are great guys when calmed down) I mostly put them at number one because the shift from nicest guy on a forum to full blown Joe Pesci is instant and pretty scary

2, fivers..man just fivers

3, Inheritance fanboys go batfuck crazy when you question Paolini's writing skills

4, Bleach fans loud arrogant and usually bigger liars than any other fandom

5, Code Gease/Death Note fanbase..why any one would go rabbid over those two series I'll never understand

alright then SFJ your turn

Where was this?

I don't debate at all outside of SJF, so I don't know what some of these fandoms do. Anime fandoms can get pretty silly, but it's hard to miss the seeming insanity of Twitards.

i would like to read the argument that edward could defeat mace windu. actually, if that were happening here, i would argue VICIOUSLY for edward just because that would be the funniest thing ever.

i do love death note. i don't think it really should be in ANY vs. debate because it wins instantly given the right circumstances, and without those circumstances, it loses instantly. give light a name and a face and five seconds on his own and any human character dies. take those away and he dies. ryuk cannot be defeated in any circumstance, regardless of his ability to defeat the opponent. it's stupid.

"can Light Yagami Kill Dr Strange"

and the answer is most emphatically no.. that his auto defenses have negated a universe wide "every one dies" reality warp and he's actually become the avatar of death

Lighyt fans kinda couldn't handle that

while i certainly don't want to get in an argument, i disagree. stephen strange is human. that's literally all that matters if we go by death note canon. it's all well and good to say 'well in marvel continuity he etc. etc. etc..' but if he is in the same universe with the death note then he is held to the same rules.

"The human whose name is written in this notebook shall die."
— Rule #1 of the Death Note

that's it, man. it's just too plain to be argued. human + name and face written = dead.

at the same time, that's exactly why i said death note should NEVER be in a versus debate.
too many black and white rules that make it unfair, for instance, a shinigami can be killed in exactly ONE way. nothing else hurts them, unless they lose their notes long enough to run out of time. unfair.

it's about sheer power you can't enforce those rules on a being who can arm himself with defenses needed to prevent the Infinity Gauntlet of all things from killing him..

that's blocking nigh omnipotence

Vicious? SDN-ers, based on what I heard... ehm, read about them.

Loud Mouthed? Star Wars wankers and F22 Raptor wankers.

but again strange's sheer power and monumental defenses are irrelevant against the death note. if you're going to debate death note and dr. strange, then you have to accept death note canon which couldn't really be more clear about it's abilities. it doesn't say 'any human whose name is written in this note will die unless they are really, really powerful with magic.' it's flat black and white, directly stated to be all-powerful and inescapable multiple, multiple times.
strange is immensely powerful, but -
1. dr. strange is unquestionably a human being.
2. "The human whose name is written in this notebook shall die."
— Rule #1 of the Death Note
3. dr. strange can be killed by the death note.
