* Music/{{TaylorSwift}}'s music appears to have devolved from the usual country themes and stories her young audience can relate to being TakeThats to her several famous exes.

** She's shown more self-awareness about this in her later albums. "Blank Space" in particular [[SelfDeprecation sends up the image of her]] as the girlfriend from hell, and other tracks on ''1989'' recognize Swift's tendency for crash-and-burn romance ("Style," "Wildest Dreams") or blame herself for relationship foul-ups ("I Wish You Would").

* A character is intelligent, but in realistic levels, later he/she becomes extremely intelligent, being comparable to many famous scientists, or even exaggerated to the point of being able to build wondrous gadgets at his house.

* GirlGenius has two cases:
** 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 ususally 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]].

* A lot of people feel this way about Wrestling/DeanAmbrose from the end of 2014 forward. While he did do some ridiculous and often funny things to Wrestling/SethRollins in their feud, they fit in his gimmick as a CloudCuckooLander WildCard and it was still a very personal blood feud and the 'wacky pranks' Dean pulled were mostly very creative ways for him to get his hands on Seth. Even starting toward the end of the feud, Ambrose would opt out of physically hurting Seth in lieu of pulling a prank on him, which after that feud ended seemed to grow and take over his gimmick. Ambrose's weirdness was eventually watered down to just saying wacky things, a fondness for blunt objects, and pulling pranks on people.

* A lot of people feel this way about In the Wrestling/Shield, Wrestling/DeanAmbrose from was a mercenary type character who was able to put on a normal face, but was obviously unhinged and just waiting for an excuse to hurt somebody. After the Shield broke up and he didn't bother with that normal facade anymore, he began devolving into a wacky cartoon character who frequently costs himself matches by trying to perform pointless stunts that only end of 2014 forward. While he did do some ridiculous and often funny things to Wrestling/SethRollins in their feud, they fit in his gimmick as a CloudCuckooLander WildCard and it was still a very personal blood feud and the 'wacky pranks' Dean pulled were mostly very creative ways for him to get his hands on Seth.

* {{Fanon}} portrayals of background ponies often go through this in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fandom. For example, Lyra was originally just a pony who sat in a humanoid pose. Eventually fans began seeing her as being a fan of the [[FaeriesDontBelieveInHumansEither fictional species called humans]] (or sometimes just liking a show called "[[MyLittlePhony My Little Humans]]" and poking fun at the series' PeripheryDemographic). Eventually the joke went from "She's a [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} little weird]] and likes humans a lot" to "She sees herself as a human in a pony body and wants to travel to Earth". Within a few years her obsession with human eclipsed her other {{fanon}}s, like being Octavia's sister or being a musician. Fans have begun to dile back on it though thanks to the LowerDeckEpisode jossing her human obsession while giving fuel to the fire of her and Bonbon [[LesYay being an item]].

** The same thing tends to happen to Hiashi in many fanfics; it's rare to find a fic that doesn't portray him as an emotionally, verbally, and in some cases physically abusive father to Hinata (''{{FanFic/Team8}}'' in particular has him as all three, with the physical abuse being heavily implied) and a massive prick in general. In the series proper, while he does start out as a rather stern clan head who's [[WellDoneSonGuy disappointed with Hinata's ninja prowess]], it's revealed pretty soon afterward that his sternness is actually [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask a mask to hide his guilt over the death of his twin brother (Neji's father) years earlier]], and he is in fact a ReasonableAuthorityFigure whose relationship with Hinata and Neji improves over time.

However, Team 8's Hiashi isn't really an example of flanderization, as the story is an AU fic where a change in the past affected Hiashi in the present for the worse, but the [[ForWantOfANail nail]] responsible for him being the way he is hasn't been completely explained in story. Currently, only the member's of the author's forum know the full story.)

* Birdie in Radio/TheGreatGildersleeve has more nuanced characterization in early seasons, even the occasional subplot about her life outside of her job, such as the episode where she enlists Gildersleeve's help with an auction at her church. Over the years she devolves into a one-note {{Mammy}} stereotype, who only drops in to make sardonic comments on Gildersleeve's absurdity-of-the-week.
