* DeviantART reviewer The Media Man ruffled a lot of feathers in the "Boys of Bummer" entry of his [[http://mixedfan8643.deviantart.com/art/The-Media-Man-Top-11-WORST-Simpsons-Episodes-430646493 Top 10 Worst Simpsons Episode List]], where he said Bart deserved what he went through in that episode. In response, he later rewrote his list to make it less controversial.

** Before this, there was the time Donna took on the Doctor's knowledge. Described as part human and part Time Lord, it turns out a "meta-crisis" like that had never happened before and ''could not survive.'' More of a ShoutOut than a throw - Eight's half-human claim wasn't referenced, but ''was'' made impossible.

* A built-in example for ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' in an old module. In one of the endings, if the players lose the campaign, the villainous cultists succeed in their plan to connected the subconsciousness of every person on the planet to an Old God (in order to break their minds and make them worshipers). In this ending minds are broken... but not humanity's. The monster is assaulted by millions (if not billions) of alien minds constantly buzzing and thinking, tearing its mind apart and reducing it to a gibbering mess. Humans are left with nightmares that would eventually go away.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s ending caused some rather... negative reactions, in no small part thanks to its DiabolusExMachina. The DLC/Expansion pack ''Broken Steel'' changes the ending, allowing the game to remain playable after this. WordOfGod says the game's default endings (without the expansion) are [[CanonDiscontinuity non-canon]].

** A minor one concerning a piece of dialogue: At one point during the final battle with Madara, Kakashi remarks that Sakura's feelings for Sasuke "had changed over time", some {{shipping}} fans tried to use this as proof that Sakura didn't love Sasuke anymore; However the anime adaptation added another line where he explicitly clarifies that she [[SingleTargetSexuality still loves him]] but it's now on a [[OneTrueLove totally different level]].

** One of the more disliked elements of the series was the idea of sending Harry to live with the [[ResentfulGuardian 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, pointing out that if that was all that Dumbledore wanted, Harry could have been simply dropped off at an orphanage or another place where Harry was guaranteed to find a loving Muggle family. 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.

Petuina Dursley, Lily's enstranged older sister, was the only remaining relative of hers, leaving Dumbledore with no choice but to leave Harry there. Later, Dumbledore apologizes to Harry for putting him through all of that and admits that he turned out Harry grew up to be become a far much better person than he had a right to expect, anybody would have expected under the those kind of circumstances.

* ''Comicbook/MonicaRambeau'': A number of fans criticized Greg Land's redesign of Monica for ''Comicbook/MightyAvengers'', especially black fans who disliked Monica suddenly having straight, European-style hair. Creator/AlEwing then wrote a scene where Monica was shown horrified after a young black girl said she wanted to straighten her hair to look like hers, and by the end of his run, he brought back Monica's dreads and BadassLongCoat.
