belongs under Character Exaggeration instead
* ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'' inverts this trope in-universe. TheStoryteller tends to depict the contestants more realistically and multidimensionally than the canon does, due to her insider perspective. She also makes references suggesting that the finished episodes mentioned in the reimagining didn't depict the contestants any more multidimensionally than the canon episodes did.

Minor spelling correction to Beatles entry
** Lennon in particular has been caricatured as the ''Genius with a capital "G"'' within The Beatles, almost as if he was the only intelligent, innovative and creative force within the group. This seriously underestimates the talents of the other band members and especially from the group as a unity. Furthermore most of the Beatles songs every sings along to where made possible by [=McCartney=]'s ear for good melody. If you look at the Beatles solo careers one quickly realizes that none of the individual members were able to have a succesful solo career, except for Paul - and even his solo works have a lot of cheesy stuff in it. Most of John's solo output is pretty much hit-and-miss, except for ''Music/JohnLennonPlasticOnoBand'' and ''Music/{{Imagine}}'' due to this tendency to write too many personal songs about his relationship with Yoko, which are quite boring for other listeners. Apart from that Lennon also made some very avant-garde tracks under influence of Yoko Ono that most people will never play more than once. In fact, the bestselling Beatles solo record of all time is ''Music/AllThingsMustPass'' by George.

Adding line breaks to Red vs Blue
** Simmons changes from occasionally kissing ass to displaying extremely sycophantic behavior ("You're not only a wonderful leader but also a handsome man, sir!"). Sarge's dislike of Grif progressed to actually trying to kill Grif on a fairly regular basis.

** Tucker, who talked about "picking up chicks" in the first few episodes, became a literal font of innuendo. Tex went from a skilled and amoral special forces soldier to a legendarily powerful {{Badass}}.

* A similar, if less deliberate, thing happened in another one of K.A. Applegate's series, ''Literature/{{Everworld}}''. In the first book, ''Search for Senna'', the eponymous character was a quiet, withdrawn, and somewhat [[CloudCuckooLander strange]] EmotionlessGirl who had a mostly positive romantic relationship with [[TheHero David]], and demonstrated genuine concern for others on occasions. As the books went on, her negative traits were repeatedly emphasized and expanded, though this was initially saved from being Flanderization by her character also becoming more complex and interesting. In the last two books, her goal of overthrowing the powers of Everworld and crowning herself took over her characterization, and just about all of her other personality traits were thrown out in favor of it. She became an outright sadist, a tyrannical and megalomaniac EvilOverlord who no longer cared at all for how much death or pain she caused if it got her greater power. ** Naturally, this is subject to YourMilageMayVary, as some have interpreted it as Senna becoming overwhelmed by the magic of Everworld, and developing a [[AGodAmI God complex.]]

* Probably the best-remembered characteristic of Chinese detective Franchise/CharlieChan is his use of [[IceCreamKoan pithy "Oriental" aphorisms]] -- a trait which comes directly from the Warner Oland film adaptations, and which were the only aspect of those adaptations that Chan's original author Earl Derr Biggers himself heartily disliked.

Not surprising, given that he'd explicitly created Chan as a ''subversion'' to the tired "fortune-cookie" stereotypes then popular.
