** The TV series was a distillation of the very silliest of UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode[=/=][[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]]-era Batman comics, roughly late '50s to mid '60s. In fact some say that the later (1970s-80s) portrayals of Batman were a backlash against the show. In Amazing Heroes#119 in 1987 (two years before the Michael Keaton film), Max Allan Collins had an interview. He said the following:
--->“I’m afraid what I’m running smack up into is the old Batman TV show controversy: the old business about, Gee that was a TV show that made fun of Batman and made fun of comic books, so we have to show people that Batman and comic books are serious and they’re adult and accordingly all the fun goes out of it. There was a reason why that TV show was played for laughs and that is when you put actual human beings in those costumes and act out those stories, it looks stupid. They betray their juvenile roots. It can’t be done straight. I defy them to do the movie straight”.
*** What Collins apparently forgot were the ''Batman'' film serials of the 1940s, which ''did'' play Batman completely straight and arguably succeeded; it helped that they pitted him and Robin against [[ThisIsReality gangsters and spies]] rather than the RoguesGallery.

Many forget that was a TV show that made fun of Batman and made fun of comic books, so we have to show people that Batman and comic books are serious and they’re adult and accordingly all the fun goes out of it. There was a reason why that TV West show was played for laughs intended as a parody, and was restrained by the production values and budget of an ABC show in the 1960s. Fans of classic comics lament that is when you put actual human beings in those costumes and act out those stories, it looks stupid. They betray their juvenile roots. It can’t be done straight. I defy them so many view this period of comics as a Dork Age, because despite not treating a guy who dresses up as giant bat to do fight crime as such serious business, the movie straight”.

Batman of the 1940s, which ''did'' play Batman completely straight 60's and arguably succeeded; it helped that they pitted him and Robin against [[ThisIsReality gangsters and spies]] rather than the RoguesGallery.70s was still cool in his own right.

* The popularity of the Cat Mario power-up from ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' was damaged by Cat Peach becoming a [=DLC=] character in ''VideoGame/MarioKart8''. This caused backlash from the fanbase as there were now three Peaches (standard Peach, Pink Gold Peach, and now this one) in the game's roster, and Cat Peach (as well as Tanooki Mario) was seen as an unnecessary addition to the game over more popular characters who weren't in the game already (such as Bowser Jr., Birdo, or Dry Bones). The later addition of Mario and Peach in Cat Suits to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' as Mystery Mushroom characters was met with indifference at best.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is one of the most-seen television shows in the western world, and naturally has displaced ASongOfIceAndFire. While it hasn't stained the books as a "bad" piece per see, and while the show has remained quite popular, several bigger and broader alterations, reaching a point where the story distances itself as a completely different canon and plot, have consistently changed the public view of many characters and events to completely different versions from how they were originally portrayed.

* While the ''Film/SuperMarioBros'' movie isn't one for the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' franchise as a whole, it is one for movies adapted from video games, and a frequent punchline for jokes relating to the often lacking quality/faithfulness thereof.

As far as the game series went, it merely inflicted the "Mario Mario and Luigi Mario" idea on some fans, much to the [[FandomBerserkButton chagrin of other fans]] for a while.

* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' is frequently dismissed as a {{Glurge}} outlet. This is almost entirely because of G3, which consists almost entirely of saccharine nonsense. People turned onto the franchise by ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' are often surprised to find the G1 [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials TV specials]], [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie movie]], and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends cartoon show]] can be remarkably mature, and even [[VileVillainSaccharineShow a bit]] [[SurpriseCreepy dark]].

* While in the original novel Franchise/{{Zorro}} wore a poncho, a sombrero and a full-face mask and used a cavalry sword and a pistol as his main weapons, the 1920 movie adaptation introduced the costume and weapons that have been used in all adaptations, with even the original author (who was still alive) [[RetCanon revising his stories to fit]].

* Many fans of the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' ''[[Film/ResidentEvil film series]]'' will take one look at the games, particularly ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3'' where there is quite the resemblance between the two characters, and mistake Jill for Alice. Needless to say making this mistake or even believing Jill was ''based'' on ''Creator/MillaJovovich'' within earshot of the game's fanbase will make them [[FandomBerserkButton go nuclear]].

* Not surprisingly, Walter Hill's 1979 cinematic adaptation of ''TheWarriors'' has completely eclipsed the Sol Yurick novel - so much so that the 2005 video game adaptation not only kept Hill's campy approach, but made it even ''campier''!
