** As both shows progressed, Angelus went from being Angel without a soul to an entirely separate entity Angel shared a body with. An evil split personality, one capable of having knowledge Angel didn't even though they were supposed to be a single mind, one whose actions depended on whether or not it had a conscience at the time.

An evil split personality, one capable of having knowledge Angel didn't even though they were supposed to be a single mind, one whose actions depended on whether or not it had a conscience at the time. It often came off like Angelus was considerably smarter than Angel as well, despite sharing a brain.

* Monserrat, the maid from ''Series/AlFondoHaySitio'', started out as a sweet LoveFreak, but as she became more of a recurring character, she became gossipy and obnoxious.

*** The Tenth Doctor's first appearance had him dropping an attacking Sycorax commander he had previously spared off a spaceship while saying, "No second chances, I'm that sort of man". His pacifist nature got played up more and more until he started to believe that former companions threatening to kill [[OmnicidalManiac a ship full of Daleks]] who were moments away from destroying all of ''reality'' was somehow a bad thing.

Plus, 10 in particular had well-documented self-hatred problems.

* ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' started out with four elderly women who had some reasonable character development, but over time, Rose got more and more stupid, Sophie got more and more bitchy, and Blanche turned into nothing more than a man-crazed slut. Dorothy became the straight man who insulted everyone, but despite her insults, no one ever called her out on them.

** Anya started out a bit unskilled with human culture (and didn't even have that in her first two appearances) but got worse throughout the show. Some people believe that this was on purpose, to mess with everyone.

** Corey started out as an average kid with average problems. Over the seasons, he kept getting more neurotic and wacky, to the point that he was diagnosed with hypochondriasis in Season 7.

*** Dan Harmon has admitted that he intentionally pivoted Britta partway through Season 1, because he didn't want the audience to feel like the Jeff and Britta pairing was being "shoved down their throats" as a straight romantic pairing. He stated in an interview, "I really started beating up on Britta, which was really easy to do because that character is an amalgam of a lot of ex-girlfriends of mine... When I felt like the audience was going, “Jeff and Britta, go fuck yourself,” I really stepped on the gas, going, 'No no no no, we hate her, too. Look at this bucket above the door, it’s got pig’s blood in it, and now let’s all laugh at how much we hate her.'"

* ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'' has Teddy Wells: despite being a secondary character who was never really more than a SatelliteLoveInterest[=/=]RomanticFalseLead for Amy, he's introduced in Season 1 as her perfect [[DistaffCounterpart counterpart]], whose only additional quirk is his love for pilsners. By Season 2, that's become his defining characteristic, to the point where even Amy is so bored with him she wants to end their relationship.

After that, he's [[PutOnABus put on a bus.]] In his re-introduction in Season 4, he is even more Flanderized and contrasted to who he was in Season 2 — he's aggressively boring, and possesses an unattractive desperation to get back with Amy, which is a sharp contrast to how coldly he dropped her for her interest in Jake two years before. Then he's [[PutOnABus put back on a bus.]]

* ''Series/RebeldeWay'': Marizza was always passionate and fiery about the things she cared for, but she also had a noble side to her that appreciated honesty and owned up her mistakes when she did wrong. Come season 2, and much of her rebelliousness comes off more as brattiness; forming protests for trivial, small things like room rearrangement, dismissing her caring mother yet instantly bonding with her real father once she meets him (despite him not grown up with her, therefore her newfound love for him is very contrived), and mistrusting Pablo EVEN after he did all in his hands to show the school he was on their side and wasn't going to support the cruel actions of his father of closing the school. And yet she believes all the lies all the other boys tell her, oddly enough.
