    This seems to be a great place to ask this question - what do you feel is the most insane fan-base in existence?

    You may list more than one - but I want you to explain why that fan-base is the most crazy.

    Crazy can mean rabid devotion, militant defending of said subject of fandom (Nolan Fans), obsession with hating their own subject of fandom (I.E. - Star Wars fans hating the Prequels to the point of insanity, Zelda fans hating the new games), insane collecting, lifestyle dominance (Star Trek Wedding, anyone?), etc...

    This can be "Star Wars" fans, "Call of Duty" fans, etc...film, music, gaming, anything.

    Fire away, Hype. What do you think?

    I'd say Cloppers moreso than Bronies.

    The fact that there are fandoms for serial killers always baffled me.

    Harry Potter stabbings at comicon are pretty nuts. As is making Quidditch a collegiate sport.

    Fans of teenager singer ( or band ) are usually crazy but fortunately it doesn't last past puberty :)
    The same can be applied to young actors fans.

    I don't think it's fair to say any one fan group is more crazy than the other. There's extremists on every side.

    That said, the Twighlight/50 Shades of Grey fans.

    Fans of a manga called Hunter X Hunter, their fan base will try to convince you that it's the best work of fiction ever and that it's flawless, i remember a guy saying that you would have to be ******ed to not like it after starting reading/ watching it.

    Star Wars fans, they will go way overboard about how bad the prequels are, there can be a smart discussion analising all the saga and it's ups and downs, and then 5 pages either there can also pages of one sided, uninformative "George Lucas ruined my childhood" posts

    I was always annoyed when there was some new franchise and people jumped on it as the next big thing. Matrix, this is the next Star Wars. Pirates of the Caribbean, this is the new Star Wars/Indiana Jones. Please. :rolleyes:

    Yeah. The Matrix was big and original when it came out, but to call it the next Star Wars was going too far. I guess you could say it's become embedded in pop culture like Star Wars, but even then, not as deeply embedded as SW is.

    With that said, Juggalos are ****ing crazy.

    People tend to turn ANYTHING into their religion.

    First, they look to fiction as an escape from the problems in their real world. Escapist Fiction you could say.

    They get so absorbed into it that they WANT it to be their reality. Hence Klingons in full makeup at the Renaissance festivals.

    They eventually realize all is not right with their fiction world of escape. :(

    Just like the real world, which they never wanted to confront, because "it sucks", all of the sudden "sucks" shows up in happy land.

    "Sucks" drives them insane, or at least exposes the insanity already there.

    Sucks comes in many forms, the two most common causes of Fanboys turing violent with dissagreement:

    1. In-universe now sucks. See Star Wars fans. If you talk about how cool JarJarBinks is and they will murder you. Yes murder.

    2. Out of fictional universe criticism: Example, Nolan Bat fans insists ALL of it is realistic. Point out a little bit of things not realistic/out of character or say you found the movies boring and they will resort to ALL of the logic flaws found by religious cult members.

    Things like ad-Hom, ad-Authoritum, Besides the point, accusations etc… why? Because you said that ANYTHING about their perfect little Fictional world happens to be imperfect/sucks.

    Yes EVERY part of a cult.

    Crazy fans of some Fiction even threaten to KILL themselves.

    The Irony is that they don't realize how much they now suck.

    Not anymore! The same fans like to pretend that it was never about realism now that TDKR is released and was anything but.

    Also some fans always complain about movies not sticking close to the source material and once a movie comes out that does it (Watchmen, Batman Year One, ect)...they complain that it was uninteresting and "soulless"... :dry:

    I'd probably agree that it's Batman fans.

    It's definitely Batfandom to the extreme that created this wave of RLS we have 'tarding up the streets at night.

    I have a friend whose boyfriend is a Brony. He seems fairly normal actually.

    I'd go with Trekkies. Their craziness has more of a tendancy to come out in public.

    Well. I just looked up what a Brony is.

    Yeah, that's pretty messed up.
