** Caboose's childish incompetence and naivety becomes insanity and nearly reality-warping levels of stupidity.

** Caboose's childish incompetence and naivety becomes insanity and nearly reality-warping levels of stupidity. Unlike most of the others, his is actually given a reason, in that O'Malley's insanity played a part in his devolving, as did the explosive firefight in his head when Tex and Church drove him out.
--> '''Sarge''': Sounds like [O'Malley] took all of the carpet when he moved out. And the drapes. And I wouldn't expect to get that deposit back either.



** Sarge's dislike of Grif progressed to actually trying to kill Grif on a fairly regular basis.

The trope is named for one of the examples in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Ned Flanders, who was originally just a considerate neighbor and attentive father, with his devout nature simply being that he willingly attended and paid attention in church, all to make him a [[{{Foil}} contrast to Homer]], before becoming [[TheFundamentalist obsessively religious to the point of being an utter jackass]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Help}}'':
** The film versions of the band were supposed to exhibit exaggerated versions of their own personalities: John as a snarky smartaleck, Paul as a smooth lady killer, George as a miserly spendthrift, and Ringo as... well, Ringo. Most of this gets lost in the finished version, though.
** Whereas ''Film/AHardDaysNight'' showed the band as individuals, ''Film/{{Help}}'' now shows them as one band living in the same house with four separate doors.

Added DiffLines:

** St. Cuthbert became this somewhere in 3rd Edition. In his original appearances in ''TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}}'', he was characterized as a LawfulGood god who [[ToBeLawfulOrGood leaned towards]] LawfulNeutral, with a portfolio consisting of wisdom, common sense, dedication, and truth, who hated evil but prioritized order first and foremost. He was suggested to one of the most down-to-earth gods, and highly resentful of KnightTemplar types like Pholtus - though he was blunt, and cared about converting others, he wasn't into killing people for not worshipping him. Somewhere along the line, it was realized he was the most prominent Lawful Neutral-leaning deity in the setting, and he ended up losing his kinder traits while absorbing a lot from Helm and Pholtus, to the point that "worshipper of St. Cuthbert" became a byline for "stick-in-the-mud JerkAss ChurchMilitant who wants to purge the unfaithful."

* Music/{{Queen}} is another example of fan-Flanderization. Due to the publicity surrounding Freddie Mercury's bout with AIDS, many now assume their classic songs are about his illness and/or bout with homosexuality. Freddie was actually bisexual, and he wasn't diagnosed with AIDS until after the release of ''A Kind Of Magic'' (the band's third-to-last official album before his death).

** Many of her album tracks have focused on other subjects than the "Taylor gets back at her exes" subject so often depicted in the media ("Back To December" places the blame solely on herself; "Mean" is about bullying; "Never Grow Up" is a celebration of childhood innocence; "Long Live" is a tribute to her backing band/stage crew/fans; songs like "Mine" and "Enchanted" show positive experiences with exes), but it seems most of the singles chosen for her albums like to emphasize her "getting back at exes"-side.

*** To say nothing of the fact that, with Necron pre-5e backstory being a race of mindless OmnicidalManiac {{Skelebot 9000}}}s controlled by evil {{Energy Being|s}} {{Physical God}}s who feed on bio-energy, there wasn't that much of a backstory to lose.

Added DiffLines:

* The Website/GoAnimate "[[YouAreGrounded Grounded]]" videos have evolved into complete and utter BlackComedy over time thanks to this trope. Originally, the grounding videos were more or less parents grounding their kids and not really liking it at all. However, as time passed on, the grounding reasonings got more and more ridiculous and, thanks to people like Issac Anderson, the creator of "Punishment Days", became more violent, with the characters changing to fit the mood.

Added DiffLines:

* Happens to Drax in the ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' movies. In the first film, he is intelligent but LiteralMinded and doesn't understand figurative speech. The movie is vague as to whether his native language doesn't use idioms, if he doesn't get ''human'' expressions, or if he's just dense in more ways than one. But in [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 the sequel]], this trait is expanded to him having no verbal filter whatsoever, saying whatever is on his mind regardless of how wildly inappropriate it is.

** Punch is one of the legendary heroes that had helped the infamous Heterodyne Boys and was a competent and friendly fighter. Pretty much every story of the Heterodyne Boys has reduced him to the ButtMonkey and Comic Relief. When Jägermonsters who had ''met'' him try to fix it, the actors doing a play about him are not pleased. Amusingly, Agatha comes to realize she knows Punch and he is indeed nothing like the story-version of himself.
** Klaus is the feared emperor and dictator of Europe, having tight control over it and ruling with an Iron Fist. Yet whenever he appears in stories and plays within the Heterodyne stories, he usually ends up as a bragger, a coward, a ButtMonkey or all of these. The only reason why the storytellers and actors keep their heads is because he [[ActuallyPrettyFunny finds them hilarious]].
