** ''Voyager'' badly exaggerated the crew's attitudes towards the past, with 20th century buff Tom Paris being the only one who wasn't completely mystified by anything that existed in the audience's present. Occasionally this even started interfering with what was going on elsewhere in the franchise ''at the same time'', like Harry indicating that holodecks are the sole form of entertainment and he sees anything he can't interact with as being dull, when over on ''Deep Space Nine'' Jake was launching a career as a novelist.

** 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 conscious at the time.

** -->'''Dennis:''' 'Cause if the girl said no, then the answer obviously is no. The thing is that she's not gonna say no, she'd never say no ... because of the implication.

Added DiffLines:

** Minor recurring character Gunther started out as having a crush on Rachel and being too shy to act on his feelings. As the series went on, he was still shy, but his dialogue with the main cast when Rachel was not in earshot and his inner thoughts made him a perverted leech that wanted Rachel all to himself. It wasn't until the series finale where Gunther ''finally'' spits it out to Rachel about how he feels about her, but Rachel took it as Gunther just being cute.

** Amy starts as Debra's friend who's inexplicably attracted to Robert. In her earliest appearances, she has a mild New York accent and is even something of a DeadpanSnarker. As she [[AscendedExtra became more prominent in the show]], the writers started emphasizing the disconnect between Amy, as a somewhat uptight but cheerful WASP, and the more expressive Barones. This escalated until she was the [[IncorruptiblePurePureness virtuous daughter]] of Pennsylvania Presbyterians, not to mention [[StepfordSmiler almost psychotically cheerful]].

** Marcy goes from a moderate feminist with a disliking of Al and the occasional hint of psychosis into a full-blown man-hating SitcomArchNemesis who will take action solely to make Al and/or men in general miserable. This might even fall under FridgeBrilliance as this only started happening after [[spoiler:her husband Steve left her]]. Then again, living next to Al Bundy for several years might do that to anyone.

* Dr. Lu Delgado on ''Series/StrongMedicine''. She starts off with a chip on her shoulder about rich people and as a bit of a StrawFeminist. Both traits are fairly understandable as she grew up in a poor neighborhood where she frequently saw the end results of that poverty--teen pregnancies, drug use, domestic violence, etc. But as the series progresses and by the time it ends, both traits get completely out of control to the point where every episode could be expected to have at least one scene where she would spend five minutes screaming her head off about whatever social injustice was being addressed, and her attitude toward rich people now bordered on reverse snobbery, while her attitude toward men bordered on flat-out bigotry. And no matter what the situation was, no matter how she handled it, Lu always came out on top and was always portrayed as being in the right.

** Elliot went from being a pretty normal, slightly quirky, girl with no interest in kids and a high degree of efficiency coupled with no personal skills to highly neurotic, obsessed with getting married and having kids, and the most compassionate doctor in the hospital that was only there because she wanted to help people.

** Elliot went from being a pretty normal, slightly quirky, girl with no interest in kids and a high degree of efficiency coupled with no personal skills to highly neurotic, obsessed with getting married and having kids, and the most compassionate doctor in the hospital that was only there because she wanted to help people. This case is at least justified by the fact that she was getting older and thus had a stronger desire to settle down in some sense.
