* Reviews for all five of the ''VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames'' titles were low, and the mainstream doesn't seem to care. It's mainly because fans wished that this crossover would be used for {{Platform Game}}s instead.

* It seems that video game critics can't say the words ''Series/KingdomHearts'' without sniping at the [[{{Sequelitis}} numerous sequels]] and [[KudzuPlot the self-devouring snake that is the plot of the series.]] If you think that stops the fanbase from [[SpotlightStealingSquad obsessing over resident hot existential cult Organization XIII]] or tossing out [[WildMassGuessing/KingdomHearts increasingly ludicrous fan theories]]...well, it doesn't. Perhaps nothing can.



* Any children's show that is predominantly made to be MerchandiseDriven will be scavenged by critics: ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'', ''WesternAnimation/TeddyRuxpin'', ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'', ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', ''Series/{{Samson}}'', or even anime like ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', ''Anime/{{Digimon}}''... but children will watch it religiously and beg their parents to buy them every product in the franchise. (It should be noted that being MerchandiseDriven doesn't necessarily make it a low-quality work, simply that critics tend to dislike them and kids tend to love them regardless of writing quality.)

* ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' is the second-highest-grossing film in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' franchise, unadjusted for inflation, despite polarized reception. The same can be said for ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' too: most critics liked it only modestly, but fanboys still turned out in droves to see them.

* ''Webcomic/TwoKinds'' has been savaged by many a CausticCritic (no doubt partially due to the internet's deeply ingrained BiasSteamroller against the FurryFandom) yet it's run strong [[LongRunner for 12 years]] and the creator manages to sell physical books of the comic and even an art book for it in [[https://keenspotshop.com/collections/twokinds his store]].

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' and ''Film/SuicideSquad'' were panned by critics as being inferior superhero team up movies when compared to the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse yet became incredibly successful, helped in part by dedicated DC Comics fans.

* The ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' sequels, especially ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'', also had {{Sequelitis}}, but they made even more money than the significantly better-reviewd ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl Curse of the Black Pearl]]''.

* ''Film/AssassinsCreed2016'' has generally received bad reviews. One of the most positive called it "the best video game movie ever" and acknowledged that this was a backhanded compliment. Yet it has made 60.5 million more than its budget within a month despite opening within a week of ''Film/RogueOne''.

* The ''Literature/LeftBehind'' series. The books are generally poorly written, and there have been many articles written that give specific examples of just how stupid the characters act. Even from the perspective of Evangelical Protestant Christianity, the theology behind it is suspect. But the target audience strongly believes in the books' message and likes them anyway.

* ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' is possibly one of the most polarizing superhero cartoons ever made, and ran for four successful seasons. The toys in particular ([[MerchandiseDriven the shilling of which]] was one of the most criticized aspect of the show) proved very lucrative for Creator/{{Hasbro}} and Marvel.

* ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' is possibly one of the most polarizing superhero cartoons ever made, and yet has done well enough to earn three seasons so far. The toys in particular ([[MerchandiseDriven the shilling of which]] is one of the most criticized aspect of the show) seem to sell ''very'' well.

** ''Twilight'' might cross over into SoBadItsGood territory; many who really do hate the writing style read it as a GuiltyPleasure. And there's all the people who plow through it just so they can bash it without being accused of complaining about books they haven't read.
