* Similar to the Fire Princess Ursa of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' example in the next page, we have ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'''s Mrs. Masaki. From Tenchi's point of view, his mother was this kindhearted woman and it was incredibly possible that Ryoko knew this, too. This characterization would carry over into ''Anime/TenchiUniverse'' and brief moments of ''Anime/TenchiInTokyo'' under her "Achika" name. Flash forward about six-seven years with the new OVAs and we find out that [[spoiler:Tenchi's mother, Kiyone, wasn't a kindhearted woman, but a total prankster who even treated her ''death'' as a joke and that the true kindhearted woman was Noboyuki's secretary Rea.]] Not only were fans pissed off, but so was Tenchi.

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' takes Chi-Chi even further. In ''DBZ'' she seemed to mellow out after Goku died fighting Cell, even training their second son Goten in martial arts personally. In ''Super'', not only does she start displaying the same EducationMama attitude towards Goten, but in one episode she goes absolutely ballistic and practically kidnaps her own granddaughter Pan away from Gohan because he and Mr. Satan ''dared'' discuss the possibility of her being a martial artist when she grows up.

** The first example would be Ash's Charmander, which upon evolution into Charmeleon, went from similarly nice compared to Ash's other Kanto starters to volatile and uncontrollable. Upon evolution into Charizard a while later, it went even further to a borderline jerk that actually seemed to dislike Ash. Charizard's attitude even cost Ash his match ''at his first Pokemon tournament''. It was probably supposed to be similar to Pokemon above a certain level refusing to obey their trainers without a certain badge in the games, but firstly Charizard is Ash's own Pokemon not a traded one and Pokemons never disobeyed their original trainer, and secondly didn't stop until after Ash had gotten all eight badges, competed in the Kanto League, and gotten halfway through the Orange Islands arc... And even then only because Ash spent a lot of time in effort to keep it alive.

* Tails from ''SonicX''. In the first two seasons, while there was some heartwarming bonding between him and [[BadassGrandpa Chuck]], he was characterized as being someone extremely intelligent who happened to be a kid, rather than a kid who happened to be extremely intelligent as he is characterized in the games. He becomes derailed even more in the third season.

** Before Madara's resurrection, Black Zetsu is shown to be a loyal servant of Akatsuki and Tobi spawned from from Madara's will who is willing to do whatever the latter needs to do with absolutely no indication of a scheme or treachery. In fact, when he forced Tobi to resurrect Madara, he actually apologize for being forced to do it. But when Madara is revived, Black Zetsu all of a sudden is revealed to be just as callous as Madara who berates Obito for not following Madara's plans. To add the derailment even further, [[ShockingSwerve at the turning point of the story]], he backstabs Madara revealing that all along he is in fact, a will of Kaguya, despite previously having virtually no indication that he worked for Kaguya in the first place.

* In ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'', Cyclonus and Scourge were a pair of dangerous, cunning, devious warriors. In ''TransformersHeadmasters'', they suddenly became a pair of bumbling idiots who kept getting in Sixshot's way, and wondered why Soundblaster lost all respect for them. They were quietly dropped from the show soon after.

** Gary Oak as well. In the early seasons, he looked to be a competent rival to Ash, and fans couldn't wait for the confrontation between them...which didn't happen for ''five years'', by which time SeasonalRot had driven off more than a few viewers. After this, he became ''a Pokémon researcher'', which has been his position ever since.

* ''Manga/{{Subaru}}'' has the titular character's personality change drastically in the final volume. She becomes [[TookALevelInJerkass snotty, easily angry]] and the brattiest she had been ever before, despite being 17 at this point. Subaru also begins to insist that nobody but her dead brother Kazuma would ever be able to ''really'' understand her, despite part of her arc in America revolving around her realizing that she isn't a solo dancer anymore and part of a group. Her character returns to normal in the [[Manga/MoonSubaruSolitudeStanding sequel]].
