* In ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'', Aya's first impression with Wakatake, Kuroki and Uesugi falls into this. Aya, like all other schoolgirl, admires them as members of [[AcademicAthlete Soccer Team KZ]], and would want to be friends with them. But one day after school, Wakatake {{crash|intohello}}ing his bike on Aya, with Uesugi and Kuroki stopping by. First, Wakatake [[InnocentlyInsensitive calls Aya a "moving mailbox."]] And then Kuroki [[HandsomeLech greets Aya as if he is picking her up]]. This followed by Uesugi [[FourEyesZeroSoul coldly commented Kuroki for "hitting on a girl again."]] Understandably, it's hardly a very good first impression for her. Although her opinions on the boys were rebuilt after spending more time with them. -->'''Aya''': My admiration for KZ had just crumbled spectacularly.

* An indirect example: In the ''VideoGame/SakuraTaisen'' TV series, Kohran idolizes the inventor of the ''kohbu'' armor, whom she knows only by reputation and from the notes and plans he left behind. When she discovers that he [[FaceHeelTurn switched sides]] long ago and now leads the demonic forces against which she and the other Hanagumi fight, she undergoes a [[HeroicBSOD crisis of faith]].

* Wrestling/AJStyles was TheHeart of Wrestling/{{TNA}}, having been there since the beginning, giving his all and more to the company, getting the respect of everyone and not being an embarrassment like other wrestlers. They repeatedly paid him back by making him and others like him by sticking them in midcard hell, forever jobbing to Over-The-Hill wrestlers and WWE rejects, and when his contract was up, they offered him a contract that would have cut 40% of his salary. He turned it down and went to NJPW and ROH and made himself the biggest name in ProfessionalWrestling to have never signed with Wrestling/{{WWE}}. Meanwhile, TNA went into a complete nosedive, being cancelled twice in two years, having most of their signature talent be signed by their biggest competitor, the aforementioned WWE, and more-or-less becoming a sinking ship. Fast forward to late 2015. TNA desperately needs publicity and a big star to help turn things around when they debut on their new channel. They contact AJ, break the bank with an offer for him, discuss storyline, merchandise, the whole enchilada. But AJ, no doubt jaded from his time with them and wishing to do what's best for his family, turned them down a few days later and went to -- where else? -- WWE. In this scenario, TNA has no one else to blame for themselves. If that weren't enough, TNA would then nuke the bridge into oblivion and destroy any chance of him coming back post-WWE by posting this [[http://impactwrestling.com/aj-styles/ statement]] on their website two days before his debut in WWE, trying to throw him under the bus and paint him as some treacherous backstabber in hopes of getting sympathy from the fans. The [[SmartMark IWC]], knowing full well how terribly AJ and other workers were treated by TNA, proceeded to put the company on blast and bash on them for trying to ruin his prosperity.

* Wrestling/RomanReigns was taken in by two veteran wrestlers as part of Wrestling/TheShield, the some kind of insane Wrestling/DeanAmbrose and the calculated risk taker Wrestling/SethRollins. Many familiar with Rollin's work prior to being put underneath Vince [=McMahon=]'s thumb know he had a tendency to {{sell out}} but it was initially the BigBadWannabe Ambrose that Reigns had the most problems getting along with. Then Rollins sold them both out to the Authority, just as he and Ambrose were starting to get along.[[/folder]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', [[spoiler:Peridot]] has a variant on this where it's not so much ethics as it is personality that breaks the pedestal. She holds up [[spoiler:Yellow Diamond]] as the most brilliant, rational, objective person in the universe, then, over the course of a brief conversation, learns that [[spoiler:Yellow Diamond]] is in fact motivated largely by pettiness and spite, and is unwilling to pursue any course of action that isn't "blow up the Earth because screw Rose Quartz, that's why." [[spoiler:Peridot]] does not take it well.

* Red of ''{{Solatorobo}}'' gets a {{Fangirl}} in the Duel Ship fights. When she finds out that Red is ordered around by his 13-year-old younger sister, she declares him extremely uncool. When she tries to beat Red in a battle later to find closure, he ends up on a RebuiltPedestal and she declares her fangirlish love for him again. This does not please her newly acquired male fanbase.
