** Not to mention that in RealLife, according to sourced quotes in TheOtherWiki, Munenori cited stuffs that clearly defies evil. And yet, those who follows his {{Flanderization}} trend ignore them all for the sake of evilness, the very thing he defies in real life. Munenori was DemotedToExtra.

* Starfire in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitan'' was modeled after ForeignExchangeStudent stereotypes. Unlike in the comics, she speaks in [[SpockSpeak broken English]] due to not fully grasping the language or [[BluntMetaphorsTrauma slang]]. Alas, some writers (including fans) don't seem to understand how to write her way of speaking like the original cartoon did. For example, in both ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' and ''WebOriginal/DCSuperheroGirls'' she inappropriately overuses "the" a lot more than she did in the 2003 cartoon to the point where it's a VerbalTic.

* ''WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC'' gradually did this with its depiction of popular superheroes as it slowly evolved into a {{sitcom}} parody with superheroes. Practically all of the characters have their own comedic personas written just for the show, based on one or two obvious aspects of their {{canon}} personalities taken UpToEleven (e.g. ComicBook/{{Superman}}'s kindness, ComicBook/SpiderMan's youth, ComicBook/{{Batman}}'s coldness, ComicBook/IronMan's alcoholism, [[ComicBook/NormanOsborn Green Goblin]]'s insanity, and ComicBook/LexLuthor's ego). Hence, Superman is a naïve, unassuming GentleGiant, Spider-Man is an {{adorkable}} teenager who's desperate to impress the other heroes, Batman is the [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] [[TheAce Ace]] who looks down on everyone, Iron Man is an easily depressed basket case who [[INeedAFreakingDrink reaches for the bottle]] whenever he needs to cheer himself up, the Green Goblin is a [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl Hard-Drinking Party Boy]] who subjects [[TheVoice his son Harry]] to a HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood, and Lex Luthor is a SmallNameBigEgo nerd who no one respects.

* In Fanfic/DantesNightAtFreddys, Dante is significantly sillier than in any of his video game appearances. The fact that the situation is much more ridiculous than he is experienced with probably has something to do with it.

** Goku also qualifies in a different way, as he's hit with a lot of AdaptationalHeroism in the anime (both the original and dub). Toriyama himself has commented that he's always been dissatisfied with Goku's "righteous hero" portrayal in the anime and that he was originally meant to be a rather [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish]] character who [[BloodKnight fights for himself rather than others]], and just happens to end up in world-saving situations a lot.

''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' brings him back in line with Toriyama's original concept, with Goku openly admitting at one point that he's a pretty selfish guy who only really cares about fighting (though he adds that he can't ignore people in danger, showing that he does have some heroic traits). On the other hand, this actually caused a backlash against the character, with some viewers declaring that ''Super'' turned him into a {{Jerkass}}.

* The cast of ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'' was already quirky. The ''Manga/HaruhiChan'' series turned said quirks [[UpToEleven up to thirteen]]!

* Done deliberately in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' story ''FanFic/{{Asylum}}'' with Rainbow Dash's protectiveness of her friends and aggression and Fluttershy's shyness and cowardice. Both have trauma related reasons for their exaggerated personalities, that are why they are in the titular asylum.

** The musical also amps up Eponine's unrequited love for Marius and tends not to highlight [[FallenPrincess everything]] [[TheAlcoholic else]] [[TheOphelia about]] her character, although the numbers "Castle on a Cloud" and "The Robbery" do provide a contrast between her pampered childhood life and her poor teenage life.
