Why They Always Fail At Duct Tape Deathmatch
- They make part of the Initial D Ironic Fandom, Need for Speed Fandom and Forza Fandom.
- Not only that, they'll attempt to impersonate Shingo by hitting other players' cars in video games just for giggles, also ruining their races.
- If you criticize Shingo Shoji or say that you dislike him, they'll openly mock you.
- Overusage of "COOL VIBRATIONS" (one of the first lyrics of Vicky Vale's "Dancing"), "DABURU CRASHU IKOZE!" and "GAMU TAPU DESUMACHE" (Engrish for "Duct Tape Deathmatch") to the point where it start to get pretty annoying.
- They treat Shingo as one of the best characters in the entire franchise while portraying the leader of Myogi Night Kids, Takeshi Nakazato a "terrible driver" regarding the scene where his Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) suffered from understeer (due to his tires wearing out during the race and the said car's weight), crashed into a guardrail and causing the car to spin out. Prior character development, Shingo (unlike the protagonist, Takumi Fujiwara, who relies on clean racing and pure skill) was a notorious driver who relies on ramming his opponents off the road during the races in order to destabilize their cars, causing a huge risk of being involved in fatal accidents. In Act 15 of First Stage, he tried to kill Takumi by ramming his AE86 Trueno off the road only for the latter to drift before the contact, which resulted in Shingo wrecking his own Honda Civic.
- Speaking of the third reason mentioned above, they view his Honda Civic SiR (EG6) as a flawless god in the whole franchise, despite there's other cars that perform way better than the former such as the Mazda RX-7 FD3S/FC3S, Nissan Skyline GT-R ("Nakazato understeer" jokes aside) or even the Honda S2000!
- They're aware of Shingo Shoji's flaws, specially in his pre-character development stage.
- Some of their memes can actually be pretty funny.
- Some of the fans respect other's opinions and can take criticism.
- A portion of the fans are mature.
