* Franchise/TheFearMythos is practically built on this trope. Anyone can create their own [[TheVerse verse]], without needing permission from anyone else. The only real canon it has are the verses, and even then you can take a [[EldritchAbomination Fear]] from that and interpret it as you like.

** Boris can range from just a stressed out guy who has to put up with his son's behavior to a [[AxCrazy psychotic]] [[Jerk turd]] with a [[HairTriggerTemper boiling personality]] that [[AbusiveParents couldn't care less if Caillou died]].

* ''Website/{{GoAnimate}}'':
** While WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}} is voiced by Ivy for a number of users, such as [=OfficerPoop247=], many users will use the David setting instead. Also, Caillou can be anywhere from just his canonical BrattyHalfPint self [[{{Flanderization}} taken]] UpToEleven to a dangerous [[TheSociopath sociopath]] with a HairTriggerTemper (the latter is more common).
** Parent characters can range from underreacting (kill your teacher and get grounded, depending on the number of years), to overly stern, to [[AbusiveParents somewhat abusive]], to [[AdultsAreUseless every bit as sociopathic as their kids.]]
** Rosie can either be an innocent (if TooDumbToLive) victim of Caillou's schemes, to ratting on him the first chance she gets, to being every bit as abusive as Boris.
** [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Barney]] can either be one, single jerkhole or there be two separate Barneys (one evil and one good). Also, Barney can range from fat to skinny (If two Barneys are there, they're usually skinny).
** Dora's appearnce can vary wildy. Boris and Rosie's appearances also depend. When it comes to Caillou, [[YourSizeMayVary his size is the one that varies]].
** Boris can range from just a stressed out guy who has to put up with his son's behavior to a [[AxCrazy psychotic]] [[Jerk turd]] with a [[HairTriggerTemper boiling personality]] that [[AbusiveParents couldn't care less if Caillou died]].
** Leo can either be an insidious bully to Caillou and hate his guts for being a Baby Show character, to not caring at all, to joining Caillou with his antics, to being just as bad as Caillou. His relationship with Caillou also varies, as covered with the first three. The fourth one is when it varies.
** [[AdultsAreUseless The teachers can either be completely clueless and let them go to the bathroom (which would always really mean "Can I ditch school?" or "Can I switch on the Fire Alarm?")]], to aware what the kids are doing.

* Minor Catwoman opponent Cyber-Cat has only appeared a few times, but nobody can seem to agree on her motivation or whether she's actually evil or just arrogant. Is she simply trying to ensure her own technical skills are good enough? Is she a MadDoctor, or does she want to sell things to terrorists? Who knows?

** Ollie hasn't fared much better in The ComicBook/{{New 52}}. His creative team changed three times in the first year, with the first two teams writing him as a generic action hero with none of the personality of the classic Oliver Queen. Creator/AnnNocenti wrote him as a womanizing beatnick, who spouted free-verse poetry while wandering the rooftops. Creator/JeffLemire improved things somewhat, making Ollie a competent hero if not a particularly memorable one. And the most recent creative team - made up of {{Arrow}} Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg and writer Ben Sokolowski - write Green Arrow like Oliver Queen on the TV series.

** Bart can be the most popular kid in school by a huge margin, have Milhouse as his only friend or anywhere in between depending on what best suits the story, though one episode did show that [[HandWave popularity can change rapidly]] as he went from the former to the latter after crying when hit with some mud.

Also, he can range anywhere from a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who's more talented than people give him credit for, a hyperactive idiot, or a sociopathic troublemaker, and everywhere in between.

* Some of the engines' personalities waver in ''ThomasTheTankEngine'', particularly due to alterations made from their counterparts in ''TheRailwaySeries'' novels. James in particular, since his very first appearances, can range anywhere from being friendly and reliable if slightly boisterous and arrogant, to a narcissistic JerkAss who is rude to everyone and objects constantly to work of any kind.
* In the FleischerStudios ''{{Popeye}}'' cartoons, Bluto's character can vary judging by who's the head animator. At times he can be mean and ruthless under Willard Bowsky ("Be Kind to Aminals" and "Dizzy Divers"), while he's more comical and bumbling under Seymour Kneitel ("The Hyp-Nut-Tist" and "For Better or Worser"). Dave Tendlar was usually somewhere in the middle.

* The on-screen characters of most Internet reviewers usually remain constant - and then there's Film Brain. If it's a review show that he has a part in, he can be every bit as snarky and malevolent as his fellow ChannelAwesome reviewers. In the anniversary specials - which are usually written by Doug Walker - he becomes the ultimate hyperactive {{keet}} whose catchphrase seems to be "I'm excited!" (Not that Mathew minds this; he actually admits the latter is closer to his Real Life personality.)

** First there's the caped crusader himself. He's had so many writers that he's barely the same character in some appearances. And that's just in the main DCU, and not going into ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'', the movies, and various TV shows based on him. To list all the different ways he's been portrayed (is he a really good detective or not? Is he admirable or a JerkAss? Is he the craziest or the OnlySaneMan of the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}?) would take up way too much space. This is perhaps best represented in the [[http://www.overthinkingit.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/batman-alignment.jpg Batman alignment chart]]

** In most episodes where the topic of religion comes up Stan is depicted as deeply and sincerely religious (albeit often with a comedic level of ignorance about his own faith) and the entire plot of "Dope and Faith" revolves around his fears that his atheist friend will go to Hell due to his lack of belief. In "May the Best Stan Win" on the other hand Stan appears to have no belief in any sort of spiritual afterlife, planning to be cryogenically frozen after death.
