It's very simple.  If the character you like wins, it's one of the best episodes yet.  If the character you like loses, then they got it wrong/were being biased/don't understand the character/cherry picked/are dumb.

Ah yes, of course.  Silly of me to forget that.

DBZ in particular tends to generate so much uproar in these types of things because so much of the story is about who is stronger than who, about the various characters training and trying to unlock an ever-heigtening array of powerups, and about who can beat who in a fight. It's certainly not the only piece of fiction like that, but it's unique in how much time and attention those aspects are given.

I mean, yeah, I'm behind you on your main point, but I don't get precisely what that episode got wrong?  But your point stands even to our latest episode here, where they call attention to that Ultron is weak against many sorts of viruses that attack his A.I. directly, only to afterwords add an addendum that he's weak against viruses specifically built to kill him.
I think that one was just a product of trying to preserve the suspense; they set up a seemingly glaring weakness of Ultron that Sigma is uniquely positioned to take advantage of, but then once the fight was over they clarified that said weakness wasn't much of a weakness after all. I can imagine why, because the decks were otherwise stacked heavily in Ultron's favor, and bringing up a little known aspect of Ultron while eliding all of the details helped to make the outcome a bit less certain. It was pretty standard bait-and-switch: sure, Ultron has been taken down by viruses before... specifically once, and that virus was specifically inserted and hidden into his programming at the moment he was being created... and said virus only existed because Wolverine and friends time-travelled from a post-apocalyptic future ravaged by Ultron, as a last-ditch effort to stop Ultron from destroying the world in the future.

And that whole strategy, time travel and all, only was able to work once: the way it all worked is that they essentially got Pym to hide a secret "stop Ultron" button in Ultron's programming, that they then hypnotized Pym into forgetting, so that neither Ultron nor Pym would realize existed until the vital moment in the future when they could press that magic button to stop Ultron from causing the apocalypse. And then of course afterwards Pym and Ultron would realize/remember what happened, and that strategy would no longer be able to work again.

What a completely surprising outcome that the baked in ad before surely did not give away
Back from the bellows of hell
Back from the back of a jail in a cell
Back from the common decrees to the common degree
Back to the streets from the East
Back to the belly of beast
Back to the place of my peace
Back to me holding my piece
Anything working disturbing that peace
Will certainly meet the deceased, capiche?

I know DBX is the "no research, only cool fights" one but knowing that A) BBverse severely outclasses RWBYverse(Crosstag even references this!) and B) Even disregarding A, Ragna's abilities perfectly counter Ruby's, makes it REEEEEEEAAALLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY hard to believe any other outcome.

The preview for Thanos is out.

Hm.  So in a roundabout way, Marvel made the Eternals a subspecies of humans.  Interesting.  Probably knew that at some point, but forgot over the years.  Reminds me of Halo and their Forerunners.  Anyways, nothing here doing much to change my mind, but it's a small preview, saving the big stuff for the full fight.
