Appeal to Rugged Individualism

This fallacy was named by Bruce Thompson:

The argument attempts to support a position by appealing to the opinion of a small (but opinionated) group of people, or even of a single person. The presumed authority of this person or group comes from their willingness to stand alone against majority opinion.

It can be seen as an appeal to Emotion, Authority, or Novelty.
