* MadeOfBologna: The Thursday 5 June 2014 strip has the company robot neatly detach Topper's head mid-sentence, revealing reddish bologna and a mounting hole. Fortunately, Topper being Topper, he simply remounts his head on its neck stump, and is good to go.

** Similarly, Dilbert's company in general went from a believably cold and impersonal corporation (albeit with fantasy elements) to one [[EvilInc actively trying to harm and torture its employees]].
** While Wally always tried to find ways to get out of work, he used to show intelligence and skill hidden beneath his pervasive cynicism. In the past decade, laziness has become Wally's sole defining trait.

** Dilbert also. In earlier strips, he's frustrated by the policies, management and unscrupulous coworkers at IncompetenceInc. Later, he gets GenreSavvy and starts being able to predict exactly why his latest project will fail in advance. Now, he's so adept at this that he's sometimes able to work the system to his advantage.
