** Khadgar gets hit with this during the Broken Shore in Legion. He had the occasional witty remark since he took a main part in the story starting in WOD. But during the Broken Shore he has NOTHING but witty remarks.

* Veigue from ''VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth'' gets this treatment whenever he appears in one of the [[Franchise/TalesSeries Tales]] comedy [=CDs=]. In the game, he has a habit of [[SayMyName saying or yelling his girlfriend's name a lot]], and occasionally gives melodramatic equality speeches, but they're hardly his only character traits. In the [=CDs=] he becomes "That guy who yells his girlfriend's name and gives melodramatic equality speeches".

** Johnny Cage became so diluted he became a parody of what he strove ''not'' to be. In the beginning he was more serious (but no less {{arrogant|KungFuGuy}}) and a very competent fighter, but devolved into a PluckyComicRelief character as the series went on. This was likely a TakeThat directed at Daniel Pesina, the actor who originally played Johnny Cage, after he had posed in character as Cage to promote another company's fighting game (''Blood Storm''). Post-reboot, while still a comedic character, they do more to ground him as a strong fighter, being the first playable character in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9's'' story mode and ''[[DidYouPunchOutCthulhu defeating Shinnok]]'' in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX''.

*** Chie was the [[Action Girl kung-fu enthusiast]] who has a passion for watching kung-fu movies and eating steak, but these were only a small part of her personality, as Chie had some smarts and a lot of compassion and understanding during the story of P4. While her compassion remains untouched, she might as well be replaced with a bear wearing a Kenpo-gi, as like Akihiko, she states every 10 seconds her admiration for steak, the many steak recipes there are out there, and screaming Kung-fu fighting during battles, or even just plain ol' cutscenes...

** Yuyuko is the {{Ojou}}, knowing and well-reserved, acting dumber than she really is, but since Imperishable Night all she ever does is trying to eat, eat and eat, while Youmu, dutiful if a little clueless samurai gardener bodyguard that she is, is either outright at a loss at what to do or so competent she's been offered job contracts by all other factions already.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' FanFiction does this a lot with the many many characters who, in the games, have only slight hints at personality traits to begin with. Which makes Touhou a unique case where Flanderization, CharacterDevelopment and Character Establishment are very often one and the same. In fact, many popular characters have personalities that developed before WordOfGod announced them in official side works, thus often clashing with the official version, which in turn makes for interesting stories when the different sides try to take control of the plot. One of the best examples is Koakuma, who officially is a mischievous little demon who does errands because she has to and loves to play pranks, while the most famous fan variant is a faithful librarian servant who may even have a crush on her summoner Patchouli.

*** Admittedly, Wario is based more on his Warioware series in Smash(hence his [[CoolBike bike]] and standard outfit), where he is indeed portrayed as a big ball of gross, but it's still not to the extent that Smash does.

*** Yukari, being one of the most popular students at school, tends to swing between becoming a trusting friend & ally, and hiding her own insecurities of missing her father through some snark at the (mainly male) party members. Even though she had her flaws, Yukari became quite a compassionate character, who would with the most seriousness step up to help people who are suffering from their own problems, even people like ((ClassClown the annoying Junpei Iori)). In PQ, while she does show some understanding of the feelings of others later on in the story, she has now evolved into an ((AlphaBitch Alpha Bitch)), and is not prone to showing how certain members of the P4 group can annoy her, let alone from her own party.

*** Junpei, being the ((ClassClown class clown)) is well known for his rather loud behaviour and being a focus character for (PluckyComicRelief comic relief), yet is also very caring and compassionate to those in need. Throughout PQ, he has become significantly more sarcastic and snarky, becoming much more goofier than his original self.
*** While the cast would initially show some surprise that ((KidHero Ken is a 10yr old Persona User)), both the P3 and P4 casts constantly refer back to this whilst making fun of his age, something that was a critical character point for Ken in P3. It doesn't help when Ken has now become rather shy (unlike his confident self in the original game).

*** Shinjiro was a cold, aloof character, who from all we know shares a close relationship with Akihiko and occasionally helps with the cooking, something he is very proficient in. In PQ, he might as well be a different character, with his unusual outbursts of challenging Akihiko to pointless, childish challenges, and his sudden outspoken knowledge in the wonderful world of cooking has ultimately made him transition from a ((Tsundere male tsundere)) to a contestant fresh from Hell's Kitchen..

*** Throughout the P4 Anime, the P4 Hero was a laidback, softly spoken ((PrettyBoy grey haired student) who occasionally dabbles in deadpan sarcasm, and very rarely shows shock in a comical fashion. He is notable a little more talkative in Pq (should you chose the P3 protagonist), shouting his persona summons unlike his p3 counterpart, and 'comforting' his own party with some unneeded, unnecessary deadpan sarcasm.
*** Yosuke was actually a decent, intelligent young man with a strong sense of justice in the original game, with his signature misfortune and goofiness more showing during the more comical scenes. All of this is changed in P4, where like his ((HoYay partner)) he has become much more sarcastic, more prone to causing accidents and has exchanged common sense for some bold stupidity.

*** Yukkiko herself has remained untouched, but her ((LaughingMad laughing fits) to bad jokes has strengthened even further, and more frequently than usual..

*** Teddie is perhaps the biggest example. His character development in P4 was incredibly strong, starting out as a scared bear who knew nothing about himself, to becoming a kind hearted yet slightly perverted bear (thanks to Yosuke), to becoming an incredibly tragic character who whilst is a sole focus for comic relief, will ALWAYS place his friends and friends of friends before him. In PQ....you might want to drown him... His ONLY character in this game, is that of a potential ((DateRape stalker)), his bear puns are non stop, and no matter how the others are feeling, he will always jump into the scene, completely ruining the drama with this... character 'development'. It also doesn't help that his stats and skills have classed him as one of the worst party members in PQ, despite the fact in P4 he could be considered as one of the most VALUABLE party members you could have
