* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': In the first two seasons, Loras Tyrell is a renowned tourney knight who goes on to make one of the biggest power plays of the war in order to avenge his lost love, who just happens to be a man. In Season 3, he turns more campy by discussing [[InTouchWithHisFeminineSide dream weddings and fashion]] and his CharacterFocus scenes all revolve around either the awkwardness of his IncompatibleOrientation betrothals to women or his InstantSeduction by Olyvar, which carries through on Season 4 and 5 until he's imprisoned by HeteronormativeCrusaders, where he remains ([[DemotedToExtra mostly off-screen]]) until the end of Season 6.

** Castiel in season 4: Badass angel of the Lord. Castiel from season 7 onward: Socially awkward, klutzy nerd. Seeing him in the later episodes, you'd be hard pressed to believe he was once a completely serious character.

** Who remembers when J.D. was just a little emotionally needy due to him wanting a father figure to replace his own dysfunctional family? Fast forward to season three where J.D. is an appletini (light on the tini)-swilling "sensey" (that's "sensitive person") who can't hold on to his "man cards" (which would be taken away from him if he did something girly) for a full day. This is lampshaded by Zach Braff in the bloopers to Season 8.

** Tyr Anasazi was a BadAss mercenary type who begrudgingly worked with, and more often than not, against Dylan to further his own schemes and the two would admit that the respective other is a highly intelligent adversary that should not ever be underestimated. Tyr eventually became a much more straight-forward (and more ObviouslyEvil) gun-toting brute, whose plans and schemes just weren't that impressive compared to earlier.

* Lt Frank Drebin of ''Series/PoliceSquad'' In the TV series, he was a competent police officer ''by the standards of the world in which he lived'' (a world in which Abraham Lincoln survived his assassination by being a {{badass}} and the shoe shine boy is over 50 and an expert on theology and medical procedures among other things). By ''Film/TheNakedGun'' series, he became a Clouseau-like incompetent whose clumsiness was in-universe.

* Robert Hewitt Wolfe's original plan for Seamus Harper on ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' was for him to mature and get over the constant sexual innuendos. After Wolfe was booted, the character became all about childishness and innuendos.

** Dylan Hunt was a good leader, but occasionally stumped with the universe since he was frozen in time for 300 years. He was also faithful to his girlfriend. In later seasons, he can do no wrong, code violations of his position of Starship Captain mean almost nothing and he makes out with another woman every other episode at least.

** Trance Gemini always had some mystique surrounding her, but that point was overused to eventually culminate in viewers going "Oh, it's just another of Trance' weird plots we don't know about yet, but her future vision will make things work out anyway." Apart from that, she also mostly resigned to becoming TheMedic and not having much action on-screen.

* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'''s main cast Flanderizes greatly over the course of the show, as do many of the minor characters. Kramer is perhaps the most noticeable, going from a quirky but ordinary fellow into an eccentric mastermind who regularly breaks the law, social expectations, and maybe even the rules of physics. Elaine goes from a forward-thinking woman to being short-tempered, neurotic, and vain. George goes from being a relatively unsuccessful but otherwise mature individual into a bastion of failure who explodes at the smallest lack of success. Of the three, only George's Flanderization is lampshaded or mentioned in-universe. Jerry is perhaps the only main character who stays unchanged, although his finicky tendencies toward cleanliness and girlfriend-perfectionism surface pretty regularly.

** Harry started off as a [[{{Adorkable}} somewhat goofy]], but well-meaning judge who enjoyed performing magic tricks. Fast forward a few seasons, and he's much more of a ManChild (one character has to check to make sure he didn't get his license from a Cracker Jack box), and his love of Mel Torme has exploded into full on StalkerWithoutACrush.

Added DiffLines:

*** Raj's inability to speak to women except when drunk was initially just ultra-shyness, which the alcohol relieved. Later it evolved into an almost instantaneous effect - Raj would stop speaking at once (but would show no other signs of shyness), even *mid-sentence* , the second a woman entered the same room, but would instantly be able to speak perfectly normally on just a small amount of alcohol.
*** Raj's romantic awkwardness and incompetence grew as a result of this. In the early series Raj, when drunk, was far more successful romantically than either Leonard or Howard. But as the other main characters gradually settled into long-term relationships, Raj was increasingly portrayed as incompetent around women.

Added DiffLines:

** ''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.
