Monsters, Inc. Ironic Fandom
Monsters, Inc. is a 2001 American CGI film produced by Pixar and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. The film centers on two monsters named Mike and Sully who work at the titular energy-producing factory Monsters, Inc, which generates power by scaring human children. The monster world believes that children are toxic, and when a small child named Boo enters the factory, Sulley and Mike must return her home before it is too late. This film has gotten praise for its concept, animation during its time, and voice acting. It has gotten to be the third highest-grossing film of 2001 and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for (“If I Didn’t Have You”) and was nominated for the first Best Animated Feature, but lost to DreamWorks’ Shrek and was also nominated for Best Original Score and Best Sound Editing. Monsters, Inc. saw a 3D re-release in theaters on December 19, 2012. A prequel titled Monsters University was released in 2013 which tells the story of how Mike met Sully during their college years while slowly becoming friends and it also has gotten a positive reception. During the years, it has gotten a toxic ironic fandom.
Why They're Scarier Than The Monsters Themselves
- As the years went by, they make a ton of stupid and overused memes such as the Mike and Sully face swap, Shrek Wazowski, or mostly anything related to Mike Wazowski.
- They only like this movie just for the memes and not the story or its purpose of pure comedy.
- Don't ever think about searching up Monsters Inc. on Change.Org because you will find petitions such as "I want Mr. Lawson to let us play the Monsters Inc. theme at our next concert.", "Let's get Hirari to cosplay Sulley from Monsters Inc.", "A petition to protect the legacy of the greatest animated monster movie ever created", "Watch Monsters Inc in Business Class", or even not shutting up about Monsters, Inc. sequel or so.
- They vandalized the Monsters, Inc. page on Wikipedia by turning the article into a meme like crazy. They also added some false facts. No wonder Wikipedia decided to protect the article due to vandalism.
- They also did this to the Disney Wiki on FANDOM as well such as this one that replaces monsters with monkeys.
- They make some stupid ships such as Waternoose x Chihiro Fujisaki (Danganronpa), Celia x Etno (Space Goofs), Mike x Shrek, Mike x Olaf (Frozen), Mike x Sonic the Hedgehog, Mike x Mavis (Hotel Transylvania), Mike x Pikachu (Pokémon), some self-inserts, and so forth.
- Additionaly, they ship Sully and Mike with Randall who is supposed to be enemies with them.
- The dark side of the furry community is still present in this fandom just because of how some monsters (such as Sully) do have fur.
- Some of them are sexually attracted to some of the monsters when it's considered possible zoophilia since they are just monsters. Don't believe us, try looking at comments related to Celia or Sully for a change.
- Hell, there is even some gross fueled artwork related to the monsters which are just as disturbing as monsters coming from your nightmares! Especially when the fanboys/fangirls of the monsters are still involved.
- Even though this may be rare, a selected portion of this fandom even make some involving Boo who is only two years old!
- They make some dark conspiracy theories involving the movie such as how Sully died in the Toy Story short, Partysarus Rex just because of a toilet seat that has his colors.
- A selected portion of this fandom will spam memes, downvote, or make unclever "meme" insults to people who dislike the film.
- They are very defensive towards Boo just because she's a child. Although we can understand why Boo is indeed a likable character yet that does not mean that she has flaws. Besides, why would be defensive towards Boo when she's only fictional.
- Thanks to the meme community. On anything related to Monsters, Inc. on YouTube, there are "memes" taking over the comments which will become as stale as macaroni and cheese left overnight.
- Of all the characters in the movie, Mike gets squeezed into other media to no end much like in the same level as Shrek, Sans, Peppa, JoJo characters, Thanos, Shaggy, you name it.
- They complained about Shrek winning the 2002 Oscar award for Animated Feature. They would sometimes start a rivalry with the Shrek fandom just because both were animated films released in 2001. Also didn't we forget to mention that some would team up with the Jimmy Neutron fandom just because of Shrek's Oscar.
- When Mike was confronted by a dog during the movie's original teaser trailer, they always make repetitive and mean comments about wanting to harm the dog that was growling in front of Mike thus ignoring that it's only fictional and that it's considered animal cruelty.
- Typical nostalgiatards who say "why can't we have trailers like these anymore" or whatever.
- They actually think that the M in the Monsters, Inc. logo is actually the illuminati when it's only just a freaking logo.
- They constantly spam many quotes from the movie such as "I'll kidnap a thousand children before I let this company die!", "MIKE WAZOWSKI", "YEOW!", "I'm watching you Wazowski, always watching...", "Welcome to the Himalaya!", and "I'll silence ANYONE who gets in my WAY".
- They are a disgrace to the Movie Community.
- If you can just avoid the bad parts of the fan-art and memes, you will still find some good ones. Especially the wholesome artwork they can create.
- Some people who like Boo don't take her too seriously.
- Some take the dog that appeared in the teaser trailer as a joke and not being too cruel about it.
- Some may like Shrek in a mature manner. If not, they may have their own reasons to not like the film.
- Not all of them are attracted to the monsters or behave like nostalgias.
- They paid respects to James Harrison Coburn III (Mr. Waternoose's voice actor) who died in 2002, a year after the film released. The same is said about Daniel Gerson and Steve Susskind.
- Some fans are unironic and like the movie the way it is.
- You can still find some mature fans who are willing to be civil towards others.
- Some are patient for a possible sequel to the film.
