* ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'' received great reviews from TV critics, intellectuals and people who liked its satirical bite. But the general public didnít catch on to it and after three seasons it was cancelled.

* All incarnations of ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' have been huge financial successes and run for years, but [[PeripheryHatedom many people outside the demographic]] consider them to be little more than either a commercial or [[SnarkBait watered down garbage]]. Complaints include overreliance on gimmicks and Aesops.

** 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 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. In fact, saying you like it in certain places, you might as well call yourself a snob.

* ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' is another example of being popular with children, but hated by critics and adults.

* ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' is another example of being popular with children, but hated by critics and adults. Unlike the aforementioned ''Breadwinners'', though, [[GrowingTheBeard people warmed up to it somewhat from its second season onward]] instead of hating it even more.

* ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch 2'' has been getting mediocre-to-negative reviews by critics to the point of it getting a lower score than the first one on Metacritic (Currently 69 to the first game's 76), but player and fan feedback has been generally much more positive, with them considering it a huge improvement over the first game.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' also received good reviews and sold higher than any game from Gen III. However, a good chunk of the fanbase views the games with contempt. Common complaints for signs of being an ObviousBeta ([[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading a slow frame rate and long saving times after looking into the [=PC=]]]), and a regional Pokedex not only filled with [[NostalgiaFilter evolutions to older Pokemon]] and [[UniquenessDecay Legendaries]] but also questionably organized (the dearth of Fire-types is a particular point of ire). Several people gained a better opinion of the Gen with the UpdatedReRelease ''Platinum'', which had a better frame rate, a more expansive regional Pokedex, a bit more depth to the storyline, and more postgame content, but even it still garners controversy from the fanbase despite continued praise from critics.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'':
** ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' received good reviews from critics, but at this time, much of the fandom from the past two Gens was losing interest in the series after the first two Gens, and the feeling of a reboot (completely separate region with about two-thirds of the old Pokemon missing) did nothing to change their minds. However, the games gradually gained more favor until Game Freak responded to the many requests for remakes with ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire'', and the infamous [[MemeticMutation "Too much water"]] complaint from [=IGN=]'s review is viewed as a joke more than a legitimate complaint.
