* ''Series/JerseyShore'' was a monster hit in the early '10s. Everyone, LoveItOrHateIt, talked about it when it was around, and a number of terms it popularized (such as "grenade", "fist pumping", and "GTL") entered the lexicon. A host of ripoffs emerged, such as ''Buckwild'' (''Jersey Shore'' [[AC:[[RecycledInSpace with]] [[DeepSouth rednecks!]]]]) and ''Series/TheOnlyWayIsEssex'' (''Jersey Shore'' [[AC:[[TransAtlanticEquivalent with British kids!]]]]). Enough controversy and criticism (particularly from UsefulNotes/{{New Jersey}}ans and Italian Americans) swirled around it to get [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controversy_and_criticism_of_Jersey_Shore a whole page on Wikipedia]] almost as long as the page for the show itself. But not even a few years after it was canceled, it was all but forgotten, and only the hatedom remained. Now, when people make ''Jersey Shore'' jokes, everyone laughs at them for being so out-of-date.

* Starting in 2005, rhythm games jumped into the spotlight with the release of the first ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' game. In 2007, ''VideoGame/RockBand'' popularized the genre even further by adding support for vocals and drums, making it one of the most popular party games of all time. But by the early 2010s, the fad died due to oversaturation (near the end, there were 2 or 3 ''Guitar Hero'' games being released per year) as well as the novelty wearing off. Today, there are countless households with instrument-shaped controllers that haven't been used in years gathering dust in closets.
* In the United States, [=MMORPGs=] are practically a dead genre (they are still popular in places like Korea, but most Western gamers find Korean-style [=MMORPGs=] to be boring grind-fests). [=MMORPGs=] began as a niche genre with ''VideoGame/UltimaOnline'' and gained popularity with ''VideoGame/EverQuest'', but 2004's ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' was the title that launched the genre into mainstream popularity (the game was even the subject of an episode of ''Series/SouthPark''). Subsequent highly-hyped titles like ''VideoGame/AgeOfConan'' and ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' failed to draw anywhere near the amount of subscribers as ''World of Warcraft''. Today, there are no major [=MMORPGs=] in development by major publishers, and existing ones have switched from subscription-based to free-to-play (with microtransactions to purchase additional content). [=MMORPGs=] have returned to being a niche genre, and games like ''VideoGame/EVEOnline'' have small, but extremely devoted followings.

* Creator/RobLiefeld, while never a critical favourite, [[CriticalDissonance was nevertheless considered one of the most successful writers/artists during]] UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks. He created several famous characters, such as SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} and ComicBook/{{Cable}}. He also helped start Creator/ImageComics and was influential through his work on ''Comicbook/YoungBlood''. However, after the Dark Age ended, he became a laughingstock for being a LazyArtist (not drawing feet, creating unrealistic/generic character designs, and overusing pouches), and for copying other people (for example, Deadpool started of as an {{Expy}} of {{ComicBook/Deathstroke}}). Today ''Youngblood'' is usually seen as SoBadItsGood (though the later revivals of the series in 1998, 2008 and 2012 were better received) and even Liefeld himself considers the first few issues of the series to be an OldShame (though many have praised the ''Youngblood'' trade paperback for fixing many of the problems the original issues had) which is generally considered a poor rip-off of the ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'', and Image has moved away from superhero comics like it. Cable and Deadpool are still popular, but that's [[MyRealDaddy thanks to other writers]] who developed them in different ways than Liefeld and are generally considered their ''true'' creators by fans. What little goodwill Liefeld still had by the 2000s dried up after a much-publicized feud with Creator/PeterDavid after the latter revealed that the character Shatterstar, who had been created by Liefeld for ''ComicBook/XForce'' and was at the time being used by David in ''ComicBook/XFactor'', was bisexual. This move was very well-received by fans, but Liefeld was incensed that the move had been made without consulting him and many felt his comments on the subject were worryingly close to biphobic (though WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall's numerous reviews of his comics didn't help). Nowadays, the only times you hear about Liefeld is mockery of his art-style or his lackluster characters, and comic book fans consider him to be the ultimate embodiment of everything wrong with The Dark Age Of Comics.

* The psychology of John Money has largely fallen into disrepute after it emerged that his biggest case backfired in the worst possible way. In 1967, Money was approached by the Reimers, a Canadian couple with infant twin sons, one of whom had lost his penis when a circumcision done for medical reasons went horribly wrong. Money suggested that the child, Bruce, be given therapy and surgery to live as a girl, while his twin brother Brian remained male. Despite lasting the better part of a decade during the period of his life in which his mind should have been at its most malleable, the therapy didn't stick, as Bruce, renamed Brenda, reverted to a heterosexual male identity by his teens, now calling himself David. The therapy had stopped because Money suggested making Brenda a real girl via sex reassignment surgery, which the family refused, pulling the plug on the sessions in the process. In 1997, David went public with his allegations that Money had forced the brothers to engage in humiliating activities, including exploring each other's bodies and mimicking sex acts on each other, to instill within David the gender behavior of a girl. Money had hoped to use the boys as proof that children are blank slates who have to be taught how to behave as society expects each gender to behave, but [[DownerEnding the story had probably the most tragic ending you could imagine]]: Brian was diagnosed as a schizophrenic who died of an overdose on antidepressants, and David, facing a failing marriage, financial woes, and depression, not helped by his brother's passing, [[DrivenToSuicide shot himself.]] The brothers were 36 and 38 respectively when they died. At some point after losing touch with the family, Money became [[OldShame so ashamed]] of the ordeal that [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain he refused to talk about it ever again]]. His ideas on learning gender had become very widespread, but after the Reimers' tragedy was revealed, the rate of surgically assigning gender to babies of indeterminate gender took a sharp nosedive. It also led to a heavy decline in male infant circumcision in Canada, as activists opposed to the practice often pointed to David Reimer as an example of just how badly it could go wrong.

* Carlos Mencia was huge in the mid-to-late 2000's thanks to his successful stand-up and Comedy Central show MindOfMencia, most of which was built on confrontational humor and jokes about his Latino heritage (Mencia being half Honduran, half Mexican). He soon got hit from all sides with accusations of plagiarism, resulting in an onstage confrontation with Joe Rogan that went viral on YouTube. It got so bad people questioned whether "Carlos Mencia" was even his real name, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment but that's a more complicated subject]]. His show was eventually cancelled in 2008 and he hasn't had a new special or TV appearance since 2011.

* Website/MySpace was ''the'' social media platform in the 2000's, boasting over 60 million users at the height of its popularity. However, due to the rise of competing social media sites (most especially Website/{{Facebook}}) over the years, the site began hemorrhaging users who wanted to move on to other platforms. After founder and unofficial "mascot" Tom Anderson was fired, the site went through a change in management in 2010, attempting to rebrand itself as a "Social Entertainment" site. The site tried repeatedly to reinvent itself and attract back users, but most of the [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks changes were poorly received]] by the few users still sticking around (mostly roleplayers, who would end up also leaving Myspace for other blogging platforms) and often reeked of WereStillRelevantDammit-type desperation.

Myspace is still around as a social networking site, albeit now with a heavier emphasis on music and entertainment. But between the existence of Facebook ([[DefeatMeansFriendship with Tom himself even stating that he much preferred it]]) and other competing platforms, Myspace's GloryDays are nothing more than a distant memory and it's not likely to recapture any of that any day soon, being considered the Internet equivalent to a DyingTown.

* Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio spent years on the Mexican circuit as Dos Caras, Jr. when he signed a contract with WWE in 2009. His Wrestling/TedDiBiase meets Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield meets Wrestling/EddieGuerrero gimmick was a huge hit with fans, becoming one of the most over heels on the WWE roster, winning the Royal Rumble six months into his debut, and scoring a championship match at ''[=WrestleMania=] 27'' against Wrestling/{{Edge}} in what would be the latter's final match. Unfortunately, he lost, and it quickly dried up his momentum, but he was able to rebound at that year's Money in the Bank, winning the contract for the WWE Championship and ultimately cashing it in on CM Punk at that year's edition of ''[=SummerSlam=]''. But that win instantly killed off his internet popularity, as people saw the cash-in an an attempt to bury Punk and cut off all the momentum he had from the "Summer of Punk" angle. Del Rio's booking as a champion would be very weak, losing the title to John Cena in his first defense and winning it right back from him shortly afterwards. After losing the WWE Championship to Punk at ''Survivor Series'' to start his legendary 434-day reign, Del Rio quickly faded into the background, taking a few months off to heal before returning to feud with Sheamus for the World Heavyweight title. The feud, which was quickly decried by fans as being boring and seemingly endless, failed to do anything for either man's career. Del Rio turned face not long after his feud was finished and won the WHC from the Big Show, but it bombed so badly that he went back to being a heel shortly afterwards. Del Rio would be barely an afterthought for the next year, ultimately being released after getting into a fight with a backstage worker. Del Rio was able to redeem himself the year afterwards thanks to his work in Lucha Underground and AAA as "El Patron", and eventually returned to WWE in 2015, winning the United States championship from John Cena and getting a massive pop from the crowd. But not even a day after his return, all the work he did to repair his battered image was completely undone, as the fans quickly reverted to showing nothing but apathy towards him. His involvement with the League of Nations only made things worse, but the final straw in his career was his relationship with Paige, as the two ultimately started to get continuously into trouble with the WWE Wellness Policy, and less than a year later Del Rio was once again released from his contract. He went over to Impact Wrestling immediately afterwards, where he was hotshoted to the GFW title, even though people could not care much less about it, and his title reign became yet another symbol of TNA's slow, painful death. The final nail in the coffin came from the complete downward spiral his personal life went through, as he became increasingly bitter and resentful towards the way WWE treated him, and his relationship with Paige reached a point where the two divorced, and allegations that he abused her popped up. Today, Alberto Del Rio is seen by fans as an example of an overhyped heel who failed to make any lasting impact, reeked of mediocrity, and at the end of the day proved to be an utterly embarrassing person outside kayfabe, so much so that few people will admit to having ever liked him.

His Wrestling/TedDiBiase meets Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield meets Wrestling/EddieGuerrero gimmick was a huge hit with fans, becoming one of the most over heels on the WWE roster, winning the Royal Rumble six months into his debut, and scoring a championship match at ''[=WrestleMania=] 27'' against Wrestling/{{Edge}} in what would be the latter's final match. Unfortunately, he lost, and it quickly dried up his momentum, but he was able to rebound at that year's Money in the Bank, winning the contract for the WWE Championship and ultimately cashing it in on CM Punk at that year's edition of ''[=SummerSlam=]''. But that win instantly killed off his internet popularity, as people saw the cash-in an an attempt to bury Punk and cut off all the momentum he had from the "Summer of Punk" angle. Del Rio's booking as a champion would be very weak, losing the title to John Cena in his first defense and winning it right back from him shortly afterwards. After losing the WWE Championship to Punk at ''Survivor Series'' to start his legendary 434-day reign, Del Rio quickly faded into the background, taking a few months off to heal before returning to feud with Sheamus for the World Heavyweight title. The feud, which was quickly decried by fans as being boring and seemingly endless, failed to do anything for either man's career. Del Rio turned face not long after his feud was finished and won the WHC from the Big Show, but it bombed so badly that he went back to being a heel shortly afterwards. Del Rio would be barely an afterthought for the next year, ultimately being released after getting into a fight with a backstage worker. Del Rio was able to redeem himself the year afterwards thanks to his work in Lucha Underground and AAA as "El Patron", and eventually returned to WWE in 2015, winning the United States championship from John Cena and getting a massive pop from the crowd. But not even a day after his return, all the work he did to repair his battered image was completely undone, as the fans quickly reverted to showing nothing but apathy towards him. His involvement with the League of Nations only made things worse, but the final straw in his career was his relationship with Paige, as the two ultimately started to get continuously into trouble with the WWE Wellness Policy, and less than a year later Del Rio was once again released from his contract. He went over to Impact Wrestling immediately afterwards, where he was hotshoted to the GFW title, even though people could not care much less about it, and his title reign became yet another symbol of TNA's slow, painful death. The final nail in the coffin came from the complete downward spiral his personal life went through, as he became increasingly bitter and resentful towards the way WWE treated him, and his relationship with Paige reached a point where the two divorced, and allegations that he abused her popped up. Today, Alberto Del Rio is seen by fans as an example of an overhyped heel who failed to make any lasting impact, reeked of mediocrity, and at the end of the day proved to be an utterly embarrassing person outside kayfabe, so much so that few people will admit to having ever ''ever'' liked him.



* Believe it or not, ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' was actually fairly popular during its first few years having a higher budget and completely different production team, not to mention Creator/KidsWB having a hand in its production (alongside the Canadian network Creator/{{Teletoon}}), probably helped. When Teletoon and Creator/CookieJarEntertainment took on the sole responsibility of production after Kids WB died out in 2008 (Creator/WarnerBros still owns copyright and trademarks), the show's quality began to drop severely and it's now one of the most hated cartoons ''of all time''. Even the early seasons are viewed as being not much better in hindsight. Not helping was the fact that it continued production well into 2014, mainly because of [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_content CanCon policies]] forcing Canadian animation to be constantly churned out in spite of the show's abysmal ratings. The series ended with little fanfare after TV producer David Straiton filed a lawsuit against series creator Scott Fellows (who at that point had zero involvement with the show) for not crediting him as a co-creator for ''Johnny Test''. It's very telling that its season boxsets are sold solely in ''grocery store bargain bins'', and even Creator/CartoonNetwork (who got the American broadcast rights from Creator/TheCW after the demise of Kids WB) seems to despise it as almost all of their promotions for it reek of OurProductSucks. It's even believed that the whole show was a SpringtimeForHitler ploy GoneHorriblyWrong. Today, the show is the poster child for [[AdoredByTheNetwork bad shows overexposed by the network]] at the expense of others, and is seen as the face of everything wrong with Cartoon Network (the show being most prominent during what is widly considered the channel's DorkAge didn't help), Canadian animation, and modern animation in general.
