Every fandom has terrible members. You can't avoid them. But, when the worst of the fandom is louder than anything else and the general fandom can't do anything to supress them... that is a bad fandom. Which are the worst? Maybe not Halo... but Sonic is definitely in the top ten.
Ask any good Sonic fan and they'll admit that the fanbase is horrible. Why? Mostly due to age. Some people started from SA2 and only prefer Sonic to be closer to the adventure series. Some are purists and want the game to stay in the 90's direction. Some prefer Boost2Win and seem think that Sonic all about going2fast.
The worst fans will take one of those ideas and defend it to the death. We have too many of those fans and they're uncontrollable.
P.S. MLP has a terrible fanbase. The more annoying fans are louder than and outnumber the casual ones. It sucks because they give the fanbase such a bad rep when some of them are pretty cool guys.
I'll admit, that I like Sonic, and I even have Sonic Dash on my Ipad, so Im a Sonic fan. I have never really seen any problem with the fanbase. Is what you are saying true?

MLP stands for My Little Pony. The fandom itself is of people who refer to themselves as "bronies" (oftentimes female members will refer to themselves as "pegasisters" instead), and they show a common interest in the show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, which premiered on the Hub, a children's cartoon channel, in late 2010; 4chan being largely responsible for its initial popularity. It is the brainchild of Lauren Faust, whose husband, Craig McCracken, is accredited for being the creator of both The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. I could go and give you all the details, but just know that bronies tend to be more fanatical than other fandoms and that they have a lot of cringeworthy individuals (which is sometimes a source of hilarity). If you want to see some of that cringe, just go here; it's a YouTube channel dedicated to archiving this kind of stuff. Just know that it's not for the faint of heart.
I really only have problems with the "Yoloswag" group (Strychnos said this as well). I also don't really like the obsession with replacing butter with gold either, but I do enjoy watching SkyDoesMinecraft's mod showcases. As for the MLP group, I can't say that they're annoying because I've only run into a brony four or five times, and they were nice people that I could have a normal conversation with.
Ok, well, not every person in a fanbase is the stereotype version. But I'm sure everyone's heard that before.
PewDiePie: I like Pewds a lot, I think he's funny. But his fanbase... UGGGHHHHHgeoaigbeoaigebigbeoaigba "YOU ARE USING A MICROPHONE! YOU ARE COPYING PEWDIEPIE!!!!!!" Just watch .
Bronies: Ok... Well... Just the ones that shove it in everyone's face. I kinda like the show myself, but still. Just the ones that are all like "HEY I'M A BRONY LOVE AND TOLERANCE THIS VIDEO REMINDS ME OF MLP."
I think those two are the most disliked. Anyway, I can't think of anymore right now.

Darn it, all the good ones have been taken! Might as well list off some anime ones.
Black Butler: You thought anime fandoms were bad? (like Naruto, DBZ, etc.) This is one of the worst. It's filled to almost full with yaoi fangirls. The show isn't even that good (mediocre), and I personally think most of the fangirls like the show because of Sebastian and his awesomeness/manliness. I mean, there's nothing wrong with putting a demon and a bratty kid in a relationship, right?
Hetalia: See Black Butler, although the show is actually funny till later seasons. Also, the shipping is out of control, perhaps even more than Black Butler.
Console fanboys: "OMG MY CONSOLE IS TEH BEST NO ONE WILL EVER OUTBEST IT ALL OF YOU SHOULD DIE"
