Added DiffLines:

* The ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' movies, which was adapted from the fairly obscure book series of the same name, have pretty much defined the series in the general public. The average person might be surprised at the wide amount of differences between the books and the movies if you hand them one of the books, where Toothless is a much smaller and annoying dragon for example.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBirdsMovie'' seems to be a strange case where making the movie this to [[VideoGame/AngryBirds the popular game series]] seems to be the intent, as any and all new merchandise or media appearances by the birds and pigs typically depicts them as they appear in the movie rather than their iconic [[WaddlingHead limbless designs]].

* The Prequel Trilogy of ''Franchise/StarWars'' was notorious in its handling of certain characters that upset some fans, but most famously Darth Vader was hit hard due to having his younger self being rather full of {{Wangst}} to many fans, which they felt ruined the awesome stoic persona he gave off (and still could have in-universe) in the originals.
** Averted. The [[Film/TheForceAwakens next live-action Star Wars film to be released]] is now the third highest grossing film of all time.

* ''ComicBook/HowardTheDuck'' fans will always have to deal with the negative reputation the series had from [[Film/HowardTheDuck the film adaptation]]. This got so bad, that [[spoiler: TheStinger to GuardiansOfTheGalaxy]] was a bit of a BaseBreaker. You still have Marvel fans saying that there should never be another film adaptation.

** While still well-liked by the general fandom, ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' has attracted a vocal Hatedom from some old timer UC fans who have accused the series of coloring the general perception of ''Gundam'' and Mecha series in the Western world. When ''Wing'' aired on the Toonami, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff it garnered higher ratings in the US than in its native Japan]] and acted as a GatewaySeries to ''Gundam''. However, its popularity eclipsed those of the UC entries as the original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' aired after ''Wing'''s run only to suffer abysmal ratings. Furthermore, as ''Wing'' had [[EstrogenBrigade many female fans]], it was also blamed for intensifying the ShipToShipCombat and DieForOurShip sentiments in ''Gundam'' that started in ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam''. Much of the rift stems from the differences in narrative and aesthetic styles of ''Wing'' and UC entries. ''Wing'' is about a HoYay-filled independent paramilitary organization trying to end wars between different factions without directly aligning themselves with a specific one. In contrast, the UC entries focus on a single protagonist acting melodramatic in a conflict between 2 major superpowers. Subsequently, many people in Western anime communities are more likely to associate Gundam with the aesthetics of ''Wing'', as it was the most popular series outside of Japan.

* The 2015 ''[[Film/FantasticFour2015 Fantastic Four]]'' reboot. Where do we start? The 2005 films, while not stellar films by any means, had a bit of NarmCharm to them, more closely resembled the comics, and are seen by some as either SoOkayItsAverage or SoBadItsGood. ''This'' film, by contrast, has been universally despised by fans and critics alike and is widely seen as the absolute '''worst''' film adaptation of the characters to date, ''especially'' with its portrayal of Doctor Doom. The film is so bad that it has now replaced ''Film/HowardTheDuck'' as the low point for Marvel movies. Now, Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox must either pump out another Fantastic Four film within ten years or risk having the rights to the characters revert back to Creator/{{Marvel}}.

** One good example is how the characters' nationalities are presented. Willy Wonka is clearly supposed to be British in the novel, but in both film versions he's American. Augustus Gloop's family in the novel is either British or East Coast American, judging by his mother's speech patterns, but both films made them Germans. Veruca Salt's family was American rather than British (in the text, Mr. Salt says "crazy" rather than "mad" and calls his female employees "gals" rather than "girls"), but both films changed this. With the Bucket family it's a gray area: Charlie and his parents and grandparents are ''implied'' to be British (eating cabbage soup and whatnot), but the sequel ''Literature/CharlieAndTheGreatGlassElevator'' follows the lead of the 1971 film by [[{{Retcon}} retconning]] them as Americans, albeit ones of English descent (Grandma Georgina's [[WhiteAngloSaxonProtestant descendants]] came over on the ''Mayflower''); in Burton's version, though, they're back to being British.

* Perhaps a mild version, but many people only know ''DragonBallZ'' for its anime adaptation. This causes people to stereotype it as having whole episodes of powering up, pointless {{filler}}, and many an InactionSequence, whereas the manga had none of these. Still, ''Dragon Ball Z'' is a very popular anime, so it's not all bad.

* Inverted in the case of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' and ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}} 2''. It's been said ''[=GB2=]'' is seen as the runt of the franchise because ''RGB'' set such a high standard with writing and characterization. At least until ''RGB'' was tragically torn apart by {{Executive Meddling}} in the later seasons.
