A fandom is a new craze on the internet. It is a mini society on the internet of people obsessed with something that drives a part of their personality.

Weaboos are some of the most toxic people to encounter when you are opposed to their favourite anime. Weaboos are people who are not Japanese but are obsessed with Japanese culture.

Undertale

Undertale has taken off from a little-known game into a giant internet phenomenon. This has resulted in a flood of fanfiction, art and lots of alternate universe scenarios. These include many ships (when someone thinks two people should be romantically together) and if you dare to insult someone’s One True Pairing (your favourite ship) you’re in for trouble.

Everyone knows about the infamous Sonic fandom and the terrible content that lies in it, as well as fans that will try to kill anyone trying to diss it. When we talk about this fandom what comes up is horrifically recoloured OC’s, awful art and gag-worthy fan fictions.

Five Nights at Freddy’s

A cult hit on  a similar scale to Undertale which has many of the same problems as Sonic: terrible OC’s, silly fan-fics, cringe inducing OTP’s and a fan base who disrespect basic grammatical rules.

My Little Pony

A television hit for children that has been taken over by adults. I won’t go into too much detail for my own sanity. One thing I will say is that it has scarring fan art. 

Furries

Furries is a fandom where adults dress up as anthropomorphic animals. I kid you not...there are way too many unacceptable fan-fictions that exist.
