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.

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' is a hugely popular show amongst children, critics[[note]]The show even won the Best Animation award at the 2017 Chicago Independent Film Festival[[/note]], and post-2014 Sonic fans. The consensus among most Sonic fans is that it's mediocre at best, insultingly dumb at worst.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has been well-recieved by critics with positive reviews all around. Fans, on the other hand, had a more mixed reception, viewing it as a ContestedSequel to ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. However, with the arrival of [[WinBackTheCrowd Book 3]], the series has become universally acclaimed by both critics and fans as well, with the remaining detractors mainly being ''The Last Airbender'' purists.

Fan opinion became much more positive starting with season 3, when the series [[WinBackTheCrowd won back the crowd]] after its polarizing second season, but the show still has a sizable amount of detractors among fans of the first ''Avatar'' series.

** 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 by both audiences and ''Pokémon'' fans (the English dub of the first movie excepted), and are better regarded than [[{{Sequelitis}} most of the subsequent sixteen (and counting!) sequels]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Extraordinarily popular with regular viewers, and some critics, but other critics feel it’s very lowbrow, formulaic and just [[ReferenceOverdosed rips off other franchises under the moniker ‘parody’ while much of it just feels more like ‘plagiarism’]], especially in the [[SeasonalRot later seasons]].

* Season 6 of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' received praise for its newfound [[GoingCosmic cosmic]], ContemplateOurNavels nature, citing it as an example of the show's growing maturation. However, Season 6 is considered to be LoveItOrHateIt by fans for the same reasons. Many were put off by the show's newfound philosophizing and considered the new direction pretentious, ridiculous and [[AntiClimax Anti-climactic]], complete with the stereotype that after Pen stepped down, the writers were getting [[ProtectionFromEditors more than a little self-indulgent.]]

** The anime series is often criticized for its StrictlyFormula nature ever since Takeshi Shudo left, as well as [[NotAllowedToGrowUp refusing to age the characters with each passing year]]. Yet, despite the decline in popularity it experienced in the Johto series, it still maintains high ratings in both Japan and the U.S., and has a large and devoted fanbase.

* ''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, with some finding the tone ''way'' too dark , [[DysfunctionJunction the cast having so many issues that they're under-developed or unlikable]], and [[GainaxEnding an ending that was hard for many to understand]], among others.

** Wrestling/SummerRae. The casual audiences couldn't give less of a fuck about her, as she's little more than a heel {{Jobber}} who occasionally gets fluke wins, and that's not even getting into the near-universally panned love quadrilateral storyline with [[Wrestling/RusevAndLana Rusev, Lana]] and Wrestling/DolphZiggler during 2015. However, smarks, particularly those who saw her work in NXT consider her an underrated talent with much potential being dealt a bad hand on the main roster. Critics seem indifferent to her however.
