* Poor poor, poor [[TransformersFilmSeries Carly Spencer]]. It's bad enough that fanboys want the actress who plays Carly (Rosie)'s head chopped off for replacing Creator/MeganFox (something that Rosie obviously has no control over, she took the role, as any sane person would do if they were offered a role of a lifetime in a big budget movie like the 3rd [[TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]] movie), but according to hardcore [=SamxMikaela=] shippers, [[InsaneTrollLogic she is ugly]] (Yes the [[SarcasmMode Victoria's Secret Model is ugly]]...don't think too hard about that), evil and the anti-christ who should [[KillItWithFire be burned]]. It doesn't help that Mikaela is only mentioned in passing in the 3rd film, and it's implied that she dumped Sam because she only liked him for his involvement with the Transformers...

* ''Literature/TheSecretGarden'': The 1987 film has a bit of this outside of the story. Since the film makers made it so [[spoiler:''Colin and Mary aren't related'']], they had to get rid of [[spoiler:Dickon.]] The only way to do that was to kill him.

** The 1993 version gives [[spoiler: Dickon]] a HappyEnding, although the ShipTease between Mary and Dickon and Mary and Colin gets a more [[spoiler: AmbiguousEnding]].

* Film/ReAnimator One would hope that a character dying tragically at the end of the film would spare her from the rampant character derailment generally associated with this trope. One, sadly, would be wrong. Tip for becoming unreasonably intoxicated in a very short amount of time while reading Re-Animator fanfiction: Take a sip every time Meg and Dan are referred to as "friends" (in the movie they were engaged and had sex on screen), a swig every time Meg is characterized as bitchy and shallow (in canon she is sweet and supportive of Dan, but immediately finds Herbert creepy which [[SarcasmMode isn't understandable at all]]) or unreasonably jealous of Dan's friendship/blossoming relationship with Herbert (even though in the movie and especially it's sequels, Herbert is the one that acts overtly jealous), drain your glass every time a fanfic writer manages to kill her off in a way even more brutal than her canon death. Do not get in the way of the HoYay, ladies, even if you pay for it with your life the fanfic writers won't let you rest in peace.

* Ever since ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' books were made into movies, Arwen has been loathed by Éowyn teenyboppers who see her as the obstacle for Éowyn to get Aragorn's love, or as a [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses "bad, bad, girly girl"]]. (Although Aragorn/Éowyn was actually a fairly popular ship long before the movies came out.) The Aragorn/Legolas slashers also have it against her. The animosity towards Arwen since the movies continually frustrates many book!Arwen fans. But cheer up, it cuts both ways! ''Arwen'' teenyboppers saw Éowyn as a [[StalkerWithACrush scheming hussy]] trying to [[RelationshipSabotage steal away the true love]] of their [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman pretty]] [[TheBeautifulElite elf]] [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princess]][[note]] on the assumption that being an elf makes you a sort of royalty in Middle-Earth, apparently[[/note]] (never mind that in the movie Aragorn and Arwen had broken up at the time) and hated her for it.

In the lore, Elrond's actual rank is Lord of Rivendell and vice-regent for the High King of the Noldor; so while Elrond is nobility he's not royalty unless he took up the title of Regent, and by extension Arwen isn't royalty until she marries Aragorn.

* ''Film/SkyHigh'' fandom is small and pretty much dead, but it had a bit of this in its heyday, usually going after either Gwen or Will. Gwen was typically bashed for being "[[RealWomenNeverWearDresses too girly]]" to justify Will/Layla (interestingly, the fact that [[spoiler:she ended up betraying everyone]] rarely gets brought up here, nor does [[spoiler:Lash]] doing the same thing [[DoubleStandard stop him from having an armada of fangirls]]), when Will himself isn't torn into for being "[[TheGenericGuy bland]]" or falling victim to speculation that he'd be a neglectful boyfriend to Layla, in favor of Warren/Layla.

* Will Turner from ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean''. Ever since he married Elizabeth Swann, many viewers who wanted Elizabeth to be with Jack Sparrow are making him out to be a rapist, an abuser, too "nice" so the Super Bad Boy is OMG better, or both.

*** Then there's Amora the Enchantress (and sometimes Lorelei), despite also being a villain. As Loki's Dragon, she's a popular character people want to see in the films, but the segment who've latched onto Sigyn instead hate the idea of her appearing, in case she gets in the way. In MCU fanfics about Loki and Sigyn, if Amora shows up, she's hopelessly lustful of Loki and spiteful of Sigyn, to the point of attacking her, prompting Loki [[OutOfCharacterMoment to defend Sigyn]] and cast Amora away...which really makes no sense as Loki is [[DomesticAbuse abusive to Sigyn]] and doesn't care for her. Making things even weirder, Amora ''isn't even romantically interested in Loki'' in canon, and while they frequently work together, they have ''zero'' romantic feelings for the other (in fact, they acknowledge in their first meeting that they'd be a ''terrible'' couple because they're both liable to betray the other).

* ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': Some Rey/Kylo Ren fans demonize Finn, claiming that Finn doesn't actually respect Rey because he lied to her about being a member of the Resistance. On the flip side, some Finn/Rey fans claim that all those who don't support the interracial pairing over the non-interracial pairing are by default ''racist''. As is the case with most ShipToShip Combat, these massive assumptions about members of other factions are mostly untrue, with many Rey/Kylo fans also being fans of Finn and many Finn/Rey fans also understanding that preferring one pairing over another has nothing to do with racial prejudice.
