* Director Creator/MNightShyamalan had a breakout hit with ''Film/TheSixthSense'' and was granted an Auteur License that allowed him to produce more of his signature TwistEnding films. While the next film ''Film/{{Unbreakable}}'' achieved some success, and ''Film/{{Signs}}'' was another hit, ''Film/TheVillage'' made money but lost some critical respect. His next two films were outright flops, and Shyamalan became a target of mockery. His Auteur License was revoked right after he tried to show it off in ''Film/LadyInTheWater'', and now he is having to make films from established franchises instead of his own stories. That [[Film/TheLastAirbender hasn't worked out so well either]].

However, between the critical success of Film/TheVisit and the sleeper hit Film/{{Split}}, [[CareerResurrection he seems to be on his way back up]].

* Creator/HideoKojima had this for a good while, leading to the current firestorm when Creator/{{Konami}} attempted to revoke it. Amusingly, it first came about when his superiors demanded he create a war game and proceeded to design [[StealthBasedGame one that discourages killing]]. Time will tell if Konami has any chance of recovering from the massive backlash surrounding this.

* The application of this to the ''Anime/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' anime was how Creator/BeeTrain, while [[Anime/{{Noir}} good]] [[Anime/{{Madlax}} at]] [[Anime/ElCazadorDeLaBruja original works]], ended up with a reputation for ill-advised adaptations. Their last work since 2012 is ''Manga/HyogoMono'' which suffered TroubleProduction and experienced CreatorBacklash from the mangaka.

"Auteur theory" (coined by French New Waver Creator/FrancisTruffaut, redefined by American film critic Andrew Sarris) states that a film is the result of its director's personal creative vision, as if he were the primary "Auteur" (the French word for "author"), with all other creative roles (writing, acting, cinematography, score, set design etc) being subsidiary to this. While the theory technically applies to all films, it has come to signify small independent "Art House" cinema that has a high degree of quirky, "[[LeFilmArtistique artistic]]" content. More often than not an Auteur director also writes much of the content of their work in order to ensure complete control over their creative vision -- hence the stereotype of the PrimaDonnaDirector.
