* The original ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' had bad dialogue, low quality animation, [[SoUnfunnyItsFunny bad jokes]] and [[JigsawPuzzlePlot ridiculous plots]] for the "monsters" reason of being there and that memorable line "I would have gotten away with it too, if it hadn't been for you meddling kids." So even after airing it years after the time its set in, it is fun to watch. But then multiple remakes came along [[NarmCharm removing these charming factors]] making it a lot less fun.
** Creator/CartoonNetwork seems to have realized this, as ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' brings back the old art style, and is full to the brim with campiness. This along with a MythArc, so to keep with the more darker and edgier that other people liked.

fun. It's felt that other people liked.a number of later installments lack the original's lasting charm because of this.

* ''VideoGame/SonicBoom Rise Of Lyric'' was patched to remove GoodBadBugs such as the infamous Knuckles infinite jump glitch. To be fair, it also fixed some actual gameplay problems, but it's still regarded as an unenjoyable game.

* A common quibble with the ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' remake. While the original had lovingly crafted Creator/RayHarryhausen stop-motion beasties and a certain [[NarmCharm old-timey cheesy charm]], the remake, despite having a much greater budget and access to more advanced technology, had [[SpecialEffectsFailure badly tacked-on 3D effects]] and an even more convoluted plot while staying [[SadlyMythtaken even less faithful]] to Myth/GreekMythology.

* The ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'' series, while it has fans, became a BaseBreaker due to this; a lot of fans were nostalgic about the goofy, silly 80 cartoon and weren't appreciating of the DarkerAndEdgier approach of the 2003 version (despite it being closer to the original comic).

* Can happen in sports which use a draft system: Teams at the top get to compete for the championship, teams at the bottom get a shot at a franchise-changing player, but teams in the middle don't get either.

* The first dub of ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' was a [[{{Wooleseyism}} rather liberal]] English version distributed by Carl Macek's Creator/StreamlinePictures in the 1980's. However, in 2001, a new dub was recorded, featuring a fresh and more accurate translation of the Japanese dialogue, and arguably better acting... ironically, the dub was dismissed by old-school fans as ''inferior'' to the original English dub. Which is ironic, because neither director Katsuhiro Otomo, Streamline, nor even ''Macek'' were [[OldShame pleased with the original dub]].

* When ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'' was remastered in an "HD Collection", many fans expressed everything from annoyance to outrage at the recasting of character voices and clearer, more crisp graphics. Many made the claims that the original [=PS2=] game's less-professional, somewhat corny voice acting was part of its [[NarmCharm charm]], and the murkier graphics added to the experience of being lost in a nightmare world.

The HD version did have plenty other problems too though; see PortingDisaster for the details.

* A chunk of the the original ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'''s fanbase was offput by the [=GameCube=] remake of the the game from 2002, which significantly "improved" the original's hammy acting ("You were almost a Jill sandwich!") and replaced it with a more natural, sometimes genuinely scary script ("A second later, you would have fit nicely in a sandwich!"). Usually for these fans, the choice between the [=PlayStation=] and [=GameCube=] versions comes down to whether you want cheesiness or actual horror.

* Tyra Banks's novel ''Literature/Modelland'' is so bad that most positive reviews agree it would have needed additional editing before being released. However, the parts that aren't horrible and confused are just... dull. The book is a mix of so-bad-they're-good parts and mediocre, forgettable parts.
