* Intervision Video, one of the two pioneers of the British home video market (the other being VCL), looked to be heading for glory when they made a deal with Creator/UnitedArtists to distribute 20 UA films on Betamax, VHS, and Video 2000 for rental in the fall of 1980. Then, in December 1981, Creator/WarnerBros entered an "exclusive, long-term agreement" to distribute 500 UA films on Betamax, VHS, and Video 2000 (about twice as big as Creator/MagneticVideo's home video deal with UA for 250 of its films on the other side of the pond)... ''including Intervision's 20''. Either Warner was oblivious to the earlier deal, or they knew about it and decided it would be in their best interests to respect that deal. Either way, more people ended up renting Warner's UA tapes than Intervision's UA tapes, and Intervision faded into obscurity quickly, eventually closing up shop in the mid-'80s.

* Ardian Syaf was an up-and-coming artist who was chosen as one of three rotating artists for Marvel's ''[[ComicBook/XMenGoldAndBlue X-Men: Gold]]''. However, he was hit with ''massive'' controversy when ''X-Men: Gold'' #1 was released and it was revealed he snuck in various references to political and religious topics, which could actually be translated as Anti-Christian and Anti-Jewish. Both fans and other creators got angry over this, and Syaf himself proclaimed that his career was over. Marvel fired him the next day.

* Weinstein Books, a book publisher owned by Creator/TheWeinsteinCompany and Hachette Book Group, was shut down in October 2017, with all its authors and books distributed transferred to the company's main division. Hachette stated that this had everything to do with [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor the sexual allegations against co-founder Harvey Weinstein]] that cropped up that month.

* ''ComicBook/GetKraven'' brought an abrupt end to Creator/RonZimmerman's career as a comic-book writer, failing so badly that Marvel cancelled it before its final issue was released. He's since gone back to writing and producing for TV.

* While not quite a big name in the animation industry, Creator/ChrisSavino had a loyal following for his creation of ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' along with his work [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory for]] [[WesternAnimation/KickButtowskiSuburbanDaredevil other]] [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls popular]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic shows]]. However his career came to a quick end after he was suspended and eventually fired from Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} after several female artists [[note]] one of which being ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' director Anne Walker Farrell[[/note]] outed Chris for his behind-the-scenes antics which included sexual harassment and threats of blackmail, with some of these accusations dating as far back as 2004. Chris has since deleted his Instagram page and it's likely he'll never work in the industry again.

* The controversial ''Lost Girls'' miniseries may not have damaged Creator/AlanMoore's career too badly, but it did bring an end to the career of his collaborator (and now wife) Melinda Gebbie. It didn't help that she relocated to England, where several of her works (including ''Lost Girls'') were deemed obscene.

* Antonio Salieri's operatic career, already in decline following his departure from Austria's imperial music department in 1792 following the death of Emperor Joseph II (to the point where he had only two real contemporary successes since), was finished off in 1804 by a melodramatic Singspiel set in colonial Virginia titled ''Die Neger'', which flopped right off the bat and, along with the changing politics in Europe at the time, convinced him he no longer had the drive to continue to write operas.

* The failure of York Entertainment isn't so much from a specific work [[note]]although their BMovie filmography wasn't much to begin with[[/note]] but from the actions of it's founder Tanya York. From several websites like [[http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/york-entertainment/sherman-oaks-california-91403/york-entertainment-tanya-york-tanya-york-york-entertainment-sherman-oaks-california-568463 this]], Tanya has been described by filmmakers [[note]][[UpToEleven including her supposed brother]][[/note]] who've worked with her as a scam artist who frequently breaches their contracts together by claiming their films aren't making any money or have yet to be released at all, when the evidence available proves otherwise. Because of this, she gets to keep most of the profits while the actual filmmakers see none of it despite it saying so in their contracts; resulting in numerous lawsuits being filed against York Entertainment. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement It's unknown how much of the rumors against her are true]], but the fact that her studio hasn't produced a film since 2011 and that Tanya left the industry to start a cosmetics company indicates York Entertainment is no longer functioning.
