List Rules Celebrity, band or brand, if it has devoted fans, then it belongs on this list!

Devoted fan bases can make or break careers. Without a loyal following the celebrity, sports team, organization, or franchise will only go so far till it runs out of cold hard cash. And that's where the best fan bases come in. Fanboys and girls pump millions, if not billions, of dollars into the one thing they are fascinated with. Why do fanbases do this? It could be for the pure joy and excitement of following an icon. The feeling of being connected to something so powerful. Or the obsession that is totally immersing yourself in the culture of fandom. Regardless, being a fan is a beautiful thing that has no right or wrong answer. Look over the list of fan base names below, and vote for the ones that are truly obsessive, er devoted.

clexafan added Clexas

Clexa fans rallied when Lexa was brutally killed off of The 100, after months of queerbaiting. Fed up with the mistreatment of queer characters and fans through harmful tv tropes, Clexas spoke up and made a difference. Over 135k was raised for the Trevor Project, a charity providing support to at risk LGBTQ+ youth. Billboards were put up around LA, websites created, articles written by publications such as Variety and Medium to teach people about the harm of the Bury Your Gays trope. An iconic character, beloved by many as the strong and sure Commander sparked a revolution, and the Clexas have not backed down. Thousands of fanfiction stories, gifsets, and analyses are still running through the fandom. CLEXAS GONPLEI NOU STE ODON.
