The polar opposite of VindicatedByHistory, and a more extreme variant of HypeBacklash and ItsPopularNowItSucks. [[note]] This can also be due to a major case of SeinfeldIsUnfunny, though this variant is rarer [[/note]] This is something -- an individual work, a creator/performer/artist, an entire genre -- that was very, very popular in its day.

It was [[WolverinePublicity overexposed until people got bored with it]], and it got so much publicity and [[FollowTheLeader so many bad ]][[SeinfeldIsUnfunny imitators]] that there was plenty of time to notice each and every flaw and dissect them under a microscope.

Another cause of this trope, other than simple overexposure, is a franchise doing something that [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks is widely rejected by the established fandom]] and fails to allow it to pick up a new audience. Falling victim to TheChrisCarterEffect or a KudzuPlot is one of the easiest ways for this to happen, as fans' memories of earlier seasons, films or books are tainted by the realization that the plot that they had spent years following is going nowhere, is being made up on the fly with little forethought, and isn't likely to be resolved. Consequently, the now-former fans tell newbies not to bother. [[EndingAversion Ending a series on a]] [[BaseBreaker base-breaking]] note is another way to do this. In a nutshell, the series enters a DorkAge that it not only never gets out of, but which rubs off on when it was still good. LongRunners may be troubled by [[ValuesDissonance changing times]] ([[JumpingTheShark and thus,]] [[PeripheryHatedom changing tastes]]), which can lead entire genres to being [[DeadHorseGenre not even the shadow of that they were before]].

Not to be confused with DeaderThanDead, which is a completely different trope, or GratuitousDiscoSequence, which is actually about disco.
