** The first three movies were the only ones to receive widespread release in the U.S., and all of them were critically panned. However, they are generally considered good with both audiences and''Pokémon'' fans, and are better regarded than [[{{Sequelitis}} most of the subsequent sixteen (and counting!) sequels]].
** The anime series is often criticized for its StrictlyFormula nature, as well as [[NotAllowedToGrowUp refusing to age the characters with each passing year]]. Yet, despite the decline in popularity it experienced in the Johto arc; it still maintains high ratings in both Japan and the U.S., and has a large and devoted fanbase.

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' is among the most popular and recognized anime series of all time, but if you asked some critics what they thought about it, they'd likely call it nothing more than formulaic MagicalGirl fare likely because the series suffers a big case of SeinfeldIsUnfunny.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has been almost unanimously positively reviewed by professional anime/manga critics, yet it's a ''very'' divisive series within the world of anime fandom. In fact, saying you like it in certain places, you might as well call yourself a snob.

* ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Air Ride'' is in a similar situation to ''Gotcha Force'', with a lot of critics panning it for the one-button mechanics and the lack of depth while it received much higher user scores due to the major multiplayer focus and City Trial.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/BlackClover'' performs very well in popularity polls in ''Weekly Shonen Jump'', both the Japanese and English versions, but gets mediocre to negative reviews overall (even going as far to be deemed [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2016-07-25/best-and-worst-manga-of-2016-results-comic-con-international/.104673 the worst manga of 2016 at a panel at San Diego Comic-Con]]). Most likely, the reason for this is because ''Black Clover'' is highly [[StrictlyFormula formulaic]] and [[FollowTheLeader derivative]], resulting in a boring read for those who have already read a lot of manga but an exciting story for beginners who aren't familiar with the series ''Black Clover'' is imitating.

** ''Videogame/FireEmblemFates'', if you looked at social media that is, was an even bigger {{Macekre}} than the original English dub of ''Anime/NausicaaOfTheValleyOftheWind'', with calls to boycott the game. This did not stop it from a rather warm critical reception (Even the [[EightPointEight controversial review of Conquest]] was still positive) or from being the best selling entry of its series in the west.
