I mean like when people are just talking amongst themselves and might have a disagreement, and the first thing they come up with is..... a fallacy.

Among them I think would be...

Bare assertions
Tu quoque (I've heard this a miiiiillion times)
Ad hominem
Affirming the consequent

What else do you think?
"Delete your fvcking sig" -1hard

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."

False ad homenum:

Where you falsely claim an ad homonym is being used but is actually just a case of your opponent genuinely insulting you/your argument.
