* 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.

* 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.

* Happens InUniverse in the ''RockosModernLife'' episode "Wacky Deli": Ralph Bighead hires Rocko, Heffer and Filbert to create the worst possible show ever in an effort to get out of his contract. [[SpringtimeForHitler Of course it becomes a hit]]... until Ralph decides to actually put thought and effort into it, at which point it's swiftly canceled.

* For those who like ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' over ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM,'' it's like this. Adventures is ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'' meets ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog,'' the perfect storm for YouTubePoop. Concurrently, ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' is a more serious version of Sonic that is closer to other '90s cartoons at the time. Depends whether you liked the humor or wanted a stronger narrative. ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'', by contrast, is frequently considered as the mean between the two... having ''neither''.

* The US finally got a DVD release of the Japanese-only {{Franchise/Transformers}}: ''Headmasters'' series...complete with a new, competent dub. Many fans of the original god-awful Malaysian dub (aired on Star TV in Asia) ''hated'' this, as it was considered the best reason to watch ''Headmasters''...otherwise many just found the show dull and repetitive.

This is also a common reaction to the patching of bad games that had a saving grace in the form of GoodBadBugs. More often than not, said bugs are the easiest things to fix, and so the fun to be had in thoroughly breaking the game is removed by the patch, while the more deeply ingrained mediocrity of such a game often remains. Even good games can get this reaction if the bugs were fun enough to play with.

with, resulting in that aspect of the game falling into this trope.



* A patch for ''VideoGame/BigRigsOverTheRoadRacing'' does very little to improve the gameplay (the opponent which used to not move now moves very slowly, but still doesn't reach the finish line), but what it does do is take the [[MemeticMutation iconic "You're Winner!" image]] and replaces it with "You Win!". [[SarcasmMode Yeah, now it's a proper game]].

* ''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.

* In the ''Boss Mabel'' vlog, [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Rob Walker]] complained that they could put a lot of effort into something, and a VocalMinority would rather just have Doug half-assing it in front of a wall.
