** Kawachi. He started out as a talented baker with "real person" problems and a tendency to need to have the hero's eccentricities explained to him (and thus the reader). Over the course of the volumes this degenerated into him becoming a total ButtMonkey, suffering any indignation or humiliation that the other characters were apparently too cool to have happen to them, and a tendency to shout disbelief at any tiny thing, causing others to mock and ridicule him. It finally culminated in even his beloved mother and younger siblings being dismissive of his abilities, and as the series went on he became the equivalent of Krillin hanging out with Goku and Vegeta... only without the abiding affection and/or small amount of respect those two gave Krillin, as Kawachi's "friends" took to using him to literally waste the opposing team's time.

** Actually, flanderization is noticeable with a LOT of characters in Gintama. Hijikata and Kondou start out as pretty serious characters until Hijikata's mayonnaise addiction gets amped up and Kondou becomes the embarassing gorilla that he is. Same with lots of other characters (e.g. Katsura and especially Madao). One of the only characters to (hardly) suffer from this is Shinsuke, but it seems to this troper that characters do start out mellow and usually get crazier as time passes.

** Broly [[Film/BrolyTheLegendarySuperSaiyan in his first movie]] wasn't what you'd call a deep or interesting character; he was basically just a very powerful and sadistic brute who hated Goku because of [[DisproportionateRetribution a weird childhood trauma.]] But he did have dialogue, and even a BadassBoast or two, and it was shown he at least had a brain in there. In the later films, and most of his appearances in games and specials, his insanity and his obsession with Goku became his sole character traits, to the point that his dialogue now primarily consisted of [[SayMyName screaming Goku's name]]. It's become fairly common fanon that his signature SuperMode is degrading his mind, but as he stays that way even when he's not in that form...

** While Hinata is just shy in the manga, she's much worse in the anime, stalking Naruto from afar and going red and fainting more than once when he makes the slightest amount of contact (physical or otherwise) toward her. [[spoiler:She thankfully loses this tendency during the final battle against Madara, fighting side-by-side with Naruto.]]
** Naruto himself [[TookALevelInDumbass is made to look a lot less intelligent than he actually is in the manga]]. Which seems to be happening in the manga as well, with examples such as Naruto not realizing that the entire island he's on shaking means something's wrong and immediately forgetting something he realized himself. [[spoiler:Thankfully he lost his flanderization entirely after marrying Hinata and becoming Hokage.]]

**** ''Sun and Moon'' reconstructs this. While Ash is ''much'' more cartoony and hyperactive, it tends to be a by-product of the more comical setup of the series as a whole, and in terms of characteristics and flaws, he's arguably one of the more evened out series renditions of the character, maintaining most of his previous battle competence and level of insight (unlike ''Best Wishes'') without totally losing his childlike naiveté and temperament (that was near totally absent in ''XY'').

* The characters of [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fate/stay night]] and VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} are prone to being flanderized in sequels, such as Kagetsu Tohya really playing up Kohaku's craziness or ''[[VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia Fate/hollow ataraxia]]'' doing similar things to the likes of Saber or Tohsaka. However, ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'' has taken these depictions and ramped them up ''even more'' resulting in a near stalker Akiha, a {{moe}} Caster who acts like a schoolgirl and even more exaggeration of Ciel's love for curry. Arcueid and Taiga, on the other hand, act completely like normal while Ilya's sociopathy is greatly downplayed. ''Carnival Phantasm'' was made like that on purpose for comedy, though.

* In Manga/ItsNotMyFaultImNotPopular, Yoshida was originally implied to be misjudged by [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter Tomoko]], and just a normal girl with the FaceOfAThug who just happens to be into punk fashion, In one of her early appearances, Tomoko accidentally[[note:[[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation The "Accidentally" Depends on who you ask.]] gropes Yoshida when trying to wake her up. [[PervertRevengeMode She responds with a slap]], [[EstablishingCharacterMoment Yoshida spends the rest of the chapter]] [[BerzerkButton angry with her]] with [[CloudcuckoolandersMinder Yuri]] acting as a consoler between the two. Post-Field trip arc, she's a delinquent, just like Tomoko originally assumed her to be, with a HairTriggerTemper and a manic obsession with cute things. She has a sort of VitrolicBestBuds relationship with Tomoko in later chapters.
