** The drew a lot of InternetBackdraft over killing off Sara Lance, which a lot of people saw as a [[StuffedIntoTheFridge Fridging]] mixed with a healthy dose of BuryYourGays. Sara was later resurrected and made into one of the leads in the SpinOff, ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''.
** Related to that, the whole reason Sara was killed off in the first place was so that they could make her sister Laurel the new Comicbook/BlackCanary. After proving to be very unpopular with the fans, Laurel was eventually KilledOffForReal (though some fans do ironically feel [[AlasPoorScrappy she got better as a character right before her demise]]). The next season, the writers introduced a new Black Canary named Dinah Drake, with the apparent goal of creating a take on the character who was much closer to the one seen in the comics.

*** Though it still seems somewhat unlikely, since a seeker whose team is more than 150 points behind will have little incentive to catch the snitch instead of hoping to keep the game going longer.

** One of the more disliked elements of the series was the idea of sending Harry to live with the Dursleys. Even if they didn't know the Dursleys would turn cartoonishly abusive towards Harry, they did by the end of the first novel. The original explanation - Dumbledore wanted Harry raised away from the Wizarding world to guard against Harry growing up arrogant and entitled - only served to enflame the readership's condemnation. Come ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'', we find out that Harry's CrazyCatLady next door neighbor was actually Dumbledore's agent, sent to make sure Harry was safe. Then, Dumbledore reveals the REAL reason he was sent to the Dursleys: Thanks to Lily's HeroicSacrifice enchantment, as long as Harry was under the guardianship of her family (in this case, Lily's older sister, Petunia Dursley), he had protection away from Hogwarts from the Death Eaters. Later, Dumbledore apologizes to Harry for putting him through that and admits that he turned out to be a far better person than he had a right to expect, under the circumstances.

** Fans of the MCU would decry the franchise for taking heroic comics characters like Sitwell and making them HYDRA agents. Season 2 reveals that some HYDRA agents actually were loyal SHIELD agents who were brainwashed into becoming evil.

* Leliana appears in all 'Franchise/DragonAge'' games even if she was killed in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', with [[UnexplainedRecovery no explanation]] for her survival except a suggestion from Leliana herself that the Maker had more plans for her. This inevitably led to jokes about how the [[PlotDevice Sacred Ashes]] can cure beheadings even when they've been desecrated. One DLC for ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' offers an explanation that fits much better into the established lore. [[spoiler:[[DeadAllAlong Leliana wasn't brought back]]. A spirit, empowered by the [[GreenRocks lyrium]] surrounding the Ashes, broke through the Veil and [[DeadPersonImpersonation took Leliana's form]], picking up where she left off. For all intents and purposes, this spirit ''became'' Leliana. In world states where Leliana was killed, this neatly places her in the same category of characters as Cole, a Spirit of Compassion impersonating a young mage he was unable to save, and the Guardian of the Ashes, a spirit of unidentified virtue impersonating one of [[CrystalDragonJesus Andraste's]] most loyal followers.]]
