Sometimes it depends.

(I love the Fire Emblem fandom. Tactician family~)

But yeah there are crazies everywhere. (Just depends whether or not they make themselves known, too.)

WORSE ALWAYS WITHOUT FAIL.

I don't associate myself with any fandoms whatsoever, no matter how much I adore the show/game/movie/book/group/etc etc
they're all fandumb. //snorts at own lame joke

srs talk tho. groups polarize, breed extremism and obsession, cause needless aggression, spark hate against anyone who's not a part, and are just painfully obnoxious to deal with. I'll refrain from mentioning in depth how every show gets turned into a political agenda somehow. plus seeing 3,000+ ponies/stevens universe/adventure time/undertale fanarts each day in my inbox makes me really not want to be anywhere near those groups just because it's so overwhelming, regardless of how good the shows/games are.

It really depends
and obvious example for a fandom gone incredibly wrong is mlp
a lot of nsfw, art thiefs and whiny people

An example of, in my opinion, a good fandom is undertale.
I mean there are so many cool comics out there and it's just fun
for now at least

I also like anime fandoms idk they're not incredibly bad either.

I guess mlp seems to be more wrong than appealing

and even if i have seen the bad side of undertale I can see a good amount of creativity there

also anime ones seem spretty much normal the further i seen form them is super kinky stuff not much drama for what I can tell

yeah, even though the show and art style isn't bad
I sometimes watch it

of course every fandom has a bad side but I guess Undertales is small (or at least so small I didn't get confronted with it)

yeah but they're not often confronting others with it ya know

Usually worse, especially from observed outside. How much fetishising of trans and LGB identities I've seen on Tumblr that made me want to leave the fandoms I was in, it can be really bad.

You need to be lucky to have a sane fandom, but that's usually not the case. I've avoided entire shows and other works because of its horrid fandom.

yeah there's always that obnoxious side
 take undertale I like the guys who change the tempo of the songs to reveal its actually other song or the guys who find easter eggs

but there's also the other side with like vaping headcanons or like 5 different sexual orientations for every character
I usually  just unfollow people as soon as they post stuff like that 
i mean it doesn't matter what it is there will always be that one person who takes things too far

I really used to like Rick and Morty but the fandom is so obnoxious and creepy I'm starting to dislike the show ;;
I unfollowed lots of R&M blogs and that helped. Blacklisted some of the most regularly used terms that cringeworthy posters use, but it's a hard life :'D

I feel your pain now it's just sans with a flaming eye (cuz originality is too hard) or being sad
mettaton in his final form because the original form doesn't exist anymore for some reason and bait for sexual orientation and gender discussions 
asgore and so sorry being the spawn from hell for some reason
alphys just being a walking anime joke
papyrus just a defenseless baby when he could be even stronger than sans

and it goes on and on
the only 2 characters i don't see being ruined are just napsta and muffet

they do argue about mettaton being a her when mettaton is referred a lot of times as a he in the game ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

XD  I always thought Mettaton was a he, I mean he never really struck me a feminine character at least. At the end of the day though he's a robot

bruh a majority of the fanart on tumblr of mettaton are of him with a vagina being objectified/abused/what have you, it's kind of disgusting and exhausting.

It really depends on how well the the person can portray the content on such fandom media, but kinda see why the question.
People would usually say "I like the game, but not its fandom", maybe because of them having a bad experience on encounter things they wouldn't expect to find from this (you know, rules of the Internet and similar stuff.. >//<) But I suppose it gets annoying when they really want to put definite statements, not being able for others to place their own interpretation of it.
That person must be open about those things and not care about what he doesn't like from it, and also other people into the fandom must be considerate about newcomers, not trying to pull much information if that doesn't corrupts the experience on the media to be received :B

yep it's either one or another some do an inaccurate portrayal of the thing they are fans of, others over hype what they like, and I think the worse is probably the gateway way of thinking like for example with star wars there's already people complaining about people "suddenly liking star wars" and treat like shit new fans instead of being happy the thing they love is getting some attention

Better for like 5 minutes if you're into fanon stuff, then goes to shit, almost automatically worse if you don't.

yeah i honestly in not into fanon or headcanons cuz they are so further from the canon that it's just not what made me like the thing anymore

Mhmm, I'm not into fanon stuff either. Once it gets too meta/AN AU OF AN AU OF AN AU I'm... lost, I don't like it. Plus I'm just not into fanon in general so even like pretty innocent headcanons just make me ":/" and I just let people have their fun and stay out of it.

Yeah, so true.
I find like in Harry Potter for example that people will pick up on things
that may not have even been intended by the author, but it works so well.
