* Nearly all design enthusiasts loathe the fonts Comic Sans and Papyrus, yet lots of ordinary people love them. They even turn up on signs for local businesses, and provide PaintingTheMedium moments for Sans and Papyrus in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''.

** Wrestling/{{Melina}} became massively over in 2008 after a HeelFaceTurn and was praised for being one of the better workers of that era. However, she's a BaseBreaker within the smark community, mostly stemming from her reputation for being obnoxious and a slut in the locker room during her early years in the company.

** Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}}. Audiences outside the South Eastern US never cared for her, but she's one of the more well-respected competitors among {{Smart Mark}}s.

** Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}}. Audiences outside the South Eastern US never cared for her, her (WWE crowds would often be dead when she'd enter the arena), but she's one of the more well-respected competitors among {{Smart Mark}}s.



* Not a wrestler, but a storyline. In October of 2009 EnsembleDarkhorse Wrestling/MickieJames had been moved from Raw to [=SmackDown=]. Wrestling/LayCool (the {{Heel}} duo of Wrestling/MichelleMcCool and Wrestling/{{Layla}}, both of whom were stick-thin) began making fun of her and calling her "Piggy James" for [[HollywoodPudgy supposedly being overweight]], which initially drove Mickie to tears before she started fighting back. Despite winning her fifth and final Women's Championship from [=McCool=], Mickie ultimately lost the feud and was subsequently released from WWE. Numerous critics and smart marks hated it (though ''Diva Dirt'' were more sympathetic to it) claiming that the opinions of LayCool reflected those of WWE's management (since they used to focus on HollywoodThin supermodel-type women) and LayCool received a fair amount of XPacHeat because of it. Mickie listed it as one of the better feuds she had done during her time in WWE. Other fans pointed out that the commentators and other women made it perfectly clear that they didn't think Mickie was fat at all, that it was the first real storyline the Divas had in a while, and that many who criticized the angle were being hypocritical, since numerous smarks had been calling Mickie fat for ages.

* Maria Kanellis mentioned above claims she would frequently check the ratings of the different segments. The Wrestling/WWEDivaSearch was reviled by smarks, yet according to Maria, the segments were some of the highest rated on the show.

That only applies to the 2004 and 2005 versions though, since by 2006, the live audiences booed the shit out of those segments.

* Daniel Ways run on ''{{SelfDemonstrating/Deadpool}}'' was disliked by most professional critics and derided as dreck aimed at the LowestCommonDenominator, but managed to sell very well and is currently one of the longest runs anyone has had on the character. Over time, however, this trope seems to be subverted; fans have started to agree more with critics and now Ways run is widely considered ''Deadpool''s absolute worst, its success believed to have been caused by the big publicity Deadpool had gotten in [[Film/XMenOriginsWolverine a then-recent movie]].

They attribute it's succes to have been caused by a counter-reaction on Deadpool's InNameOnly adpatation in ''X-Men Origins: Wolverine.'' Others feel that, while not ''bad'' per say, and playing a major role in bringing the big publicity character back into the mainstream, it has indeed negatively impacted how many people perceive Deadpool had gotten in [[Film/XMenOriginsWolverine [[labelnote: Explanation]]To be specific, how Deadpool is only seen as a then-recent movie]].totally random smuck running on InsaneTrollLogic, rather than a well-rounded character.[[/labelnote]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' is hated by purists of the original series who feel this show is an [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks insult to the original]] and a ReplacementScrappy for ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. Older audiences who weren't purists generally fnid it stupid, unfunny, and immature. However, critics have given it mixed to positive reviews and it is Cartoon Network's highest rated show, and is liked by children.

Added DiffLines:

* One big example is the comic strip adaptation of the M.A.S.K comic released by IDW in 2016. Critics love it for its strong racial diversity and more Fast and Furious-style of storytelling. Fans of the original cartoon dislike it for the RaceLift of Matt Trakker and having a more serious storyline. The IDW Hasbro Wiki even calls it "The biggest example of Critical Dissonance ever", with a link to this page.
