* The modernization of the Franchise/SherlockHolmes stories in ''Series/Sherlock'' led to a [[FollowTheLeader series of copycat series]] such as ''Series/Elementary'' and ''Series/Instinct'', in which private individuals solve murders and other crimes, occasionally with the cooperation of the police. This continues even though even the most inexperienced of defence lawyers would have the work of a private consulting detective dismissed as evidence tampering, thus [[NiceJobBreakingItHero letting demonstrably guilty parties go free]].

Added DiffLines:

** Perhaps helping the case is that her books can be seen as portraying the biases and prejudices the characters themselves would have had at that time. Many of her ensemble characters were of a similar class to Christie's own, so it's entirely feasible that they would have felt the same way regardless of the author's opinions.

Added DiffLines:

** Some of these traditions were finally broken in ''Super Smash Bros. Ultimate'', wherein Marth has English lines (provided by usual English VA Yuri Lownethal) in the game at last and Ganondorf [[DivergentCharacterEvolution has more that sets him apart from Captain Falcon]]. At the same time, it introduced a new Grandfather Clause in the form of the default [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Corrin]] skin; back when Corrin became DLC for the previous installment, ''Fates'' hadn't yet come out worldwide and the developers had no way of knowing that the female version of Corrin would become the most popular and preferred incarnation of the character, thus male Corrin was the default skin in ''4''. Male Corrin remains the default skin in ''Ultimate'' because of this, but at least female Corrin is heavily marketed alongside him at the same time.

->''"This comes as no surprise: It's a cliché that Superman's glasses are the most laughably ineffective costume ever, but who cares? Changing that part of the mythos would be like taking the stars off the American flag. So screw SuspensionOfDisbelief: Superman predates it. He's got a free pass to be wearing the same completely unbelievable disguise 70 years later."''

* Creator/StephenHawking's famous near-monotone voice synthesizer. [[TechnologyMarchesOn Even though the technology has improved considerably since he first got it in the 1980s]], he turned down many offers to improve and humanise the voice, saying that it's become the voice that people expected him to have, [[DisneyOwnsThisTrope even getting it trademarked]]. And of course it is recognized the world over.*[[/folder]]

* It's not uncommon for artists that have switched genres (a singer switching from Country to Pop like Music/TaylorSwift or [=LeAnn=] Rimes is a common one) to continue to be listed as the genre they started as, as long as their sound doesn't become too alien.

* Still another baseball example: The Hall of Fame and the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA), whose members vote on recently retired players, agreed that starting with the election for the class of 2015, players would be eligible for election on 10 annual ballots instead of 15.[[note]]For a player to be eligible for the Hall, he must (1) have played for at least 10 years in MLB, (2) not be on baseball's banned list, such as Pete Rose, and (3) either be retired for 5 years or dead for 6 months.[[/note]] The three players on the 2015 ballot who had already appeared on 10 or more ballots (Don Mattingly, Alan Trammell, Lee Smith) remained eligible for the full 15 years, should they get enough votes to stay on the ballot.[[note]]All three stayed on the ballot for the full 15 years, but failed to be elected. Mattingly's last shot was in 2015, Trammell's in 2016, and Smith's in 2017.[[/note]]

** Another example of [=McDonald's=] exempt from this rule is the handful of restaurants whose original franchise agreements were with the [=McDonald=] brothers themselves (rather than Ray Kroc), such as the 4th location in Downey, California, currently [[LongRunners the oldest location still in operation worldwide]]. Their agreements did not have the mandatory updating clause and are allowed to stay as-is, with many stores qualifying for spots on the National Register of Historic Places.
