Today, Seltzerberg are considered the prime suspects of [[GenreKiller killing the parody genre]] (though Marlon Wayans isn't seen a much better). The pop culture references in their films [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece have all dated horribly]], and they made no effort to make ''good'' references to start with [[ShallowParody as they base their parodies on trailers rather than going through the trouble of sitting through the movies they're parodying]].

* [[PressXToNotDie Quick time events]] in videogame. It has its origins from Full Motion Video gaming and it's popularized by Videogame/{{Shenmue}}, Videogame/ResidentEvil4, and Videogame/GodOfWar, among others, the gameplay mechanics allows breathtaking movie-like action to be executed with simple button presses. However the gameplay mechanic suffers from overuse and ridicule, especially from several game critics like WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation, with Videogame/ResidentEvil6 criticized for its overuse. Today even sequels of said games or games by the same makers who often known to use such gameplay mechanic (such as Creator/PlatinumGames) makes no use of QTE, unless in very rare occasions.

^ This trope is mentioned in ''WesternAnimation/{{TheLoudHouse}}'' episode "Tattler's Tale", Lincoln mentions that if his dad found out that he destroyed his disco ball he'd be as dead as disco.

* Wrestling/AshleyMassaro was very popular when she was first introduced. She won the second Diva Search easily by fan votes and was liked for her unique look -- as well as expressing a desire to wrestle. In her initial months, she was held up as a Diva with lots of potential. Things went downhill around the time she was chosen to pose for ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}''. After a disastrous match at ''[=WrestleMania=] 23'' with Wrestling/{{Melina}}, constant injuries, as well as fellow Divas such as Wrestling/MichelleMcCool, {{Wrestling/Layla}}, Wrestling/CandiceMichelle, and Wrestling/KellyKelly putting work in to become better wrestlers, fans disappeared from Ashley's side. The final nail came when she was exposed as possibly working for a high-class escort agency, and requested to be released in order to care for her ill daughter. While she attempted to make a comeback on the indies, she eventually got a reputation for no-showing events she was advertised for. Nowadays, she's remembered as a representation of everything that was wrong with the Divas division after Wrestling/{{Lita}} and Wrestling/TrishStratus retired.

However, their dub of ''One Piece'' kickstarted the company's fall from grace and solidified the infamous reputation they have today. This dub took the company's most decried practices, such as [[{{Bowdlerise}} excessive censorship]], replacing ''all'' the music (capped off with a ThemeTuneRap), skipping over several important episodes, [[CutAndPasteTranslation remixing elements]] of episodes, drastic changes to the plots, [[CulturalTranslation Americanization]], and low quality voice acting, and cranked them UpToEleven, all the while showcasing none of their redeeming qualities. Though to be fair, [=4Kids=] wanted nothing to do with the show since they were aware of how un-family friendly it was, but Toei forced them to dub it as they would only license other shows to [=4Kids=] as part of a packaged deal. This even led to an allowance on ''fansubbers'' to continue subbing certain series, as [=4Kids=]' DVD releases rarely, if ever, had any of the original Japanese audio. David Moo, Sanji's voice actor at the time, was so heavily criticized for his performance that he retired from the dubbing industry altogether and became a bartender. Not helping matters is that Moo's only ''other'' notable role, Xellos in ''Anime/{{Slayers}}'' is also extremely polarizing.\\\

As the 2000s anime boom wore down, [=4Kids=] sold the rights to their biggest CashCowFranchise, ''Pokémon'', to The Pokémon Company International in 2006. Creator/FUNimation [[note]][[{{Irony}} ironically]] the company's home video partner from 2002 to 2009, with exceptions being ''Pokémon'' and ''One Piece''[[/note]] picked up the rights to ''One Piece'' in 2007 once [=4Kids=] legally dropped the license and redubbed the whole series far more faithfully to the original. ''Winx Club'' and ''TMNT'' had their licenses cancelled and transferred to Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} (the latter alongside the whole ''Ninja Turtles'' franchise). It then lost its slot on Creator/{{Fox}}'s schedule in 2009 in a payment dispute and was unceremoniously replaced with literal {{Infomercial}}s. With only ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' and a few lesser shows left, 4Kids filed for bankruptcy in 2011 after their longtime CEO stepped down. Creator/TVTokyo and Nihon Ad Systems then filed a lawsuit against 4Kids over ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'', accusing them of underpaying anime licencors and conspiring with Funimation to avoid royalty payments by hiding the income. Creator/{{Konami}} picked up the ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' franchise and placed it under the 4K Media division, while Creator/SabanBrands acquired the rest of 4Kids' anime and cartoons.\\\
