* This is common in multiple music fandoms, and leads to a sort of cycle: a band becomes "popular", at which point liking them becomes lame and so they become unpopular, at which point no-one likes them so liking them becomes "cool" again. Thanks to the Internet, this can often happen over the course of a single month, even with no change whatsoever from the band themselves. Factor in that this happens on several levels (with individual artists, genres, and even with awareness of this very trope), and that bands often drastically change their sounds and attitudes (usually partially due to fan reaction and, again, awareness of this trope), and you get a consensus attitude that is very confusing and difficult to get a read on.
** There's also the "SellOut" factor - commit a GenreAdultery, the artist is giving away its artistic integrity to get airplay; get any sort of commercial\mainstream recognition, your music is now worthless (as if [[FalseDichotomy they don't deserve to get paid for it and must always be a]] StarvingArtist).

* Look at the ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', or really any popular {{Superhero}} film from the last decade or so. Chances are, you will find vocal fans of the source material that absolutely ''hate'' the publicity and popularity the franchise has received in light of getting a movie adaptation. For instance, it's not uncommon to hear Marvel fans complaining about how they have to put up with a bunch of kids and "fangirls" because of the popularity of the [[MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]].

** Parodied in S2 Ep03, "Tributeklok". Dethklok is decried by fans when they refuse to play at a gig they won't make any money off of, and after they do an endorsement for chewing gum, a little boy spits in Nathan's face and calls them sellouts. The band members decide they need to get back in touch with their rock n roll roots which consists of joining their own tribute band and doing nothing that the successful Dethklok would do (not eating fancy food, only using amateur made fliers to advertise their shows, living in poor conditions). However, when they decide to play the gig that they refused to play before, (since it's the opposite of what they would do) the same little boy from earlier calls them sellouts again, saying the real Dethklok would never play it. Deciding it's a [[UnpleasableFanbase no win situation]] they decide to just go back to being wealthy and successful

* In mathematics, this is the definition of one-to-one functions. Once some other x-value has found a given y-value, no other x-values want it.

** Keep in mind that a name being too common is a legitimate concern-if there's a class with, say, three kids named Michael, then it gets confusing.

* WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}} got this treatment to a smaller degree when the show was still running (Mostly by [=SpongeBob=], WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents and WesternAnimation/InvaderZim fans who felt it was unfair that their shows were getting undermined for Rugrats and other K-C shows).

* The Archfiend is a youtube ranter that frequently uses this trope. He finds it all-right that you make youtube videos, until it becomes your living (or you can live with that as a job). In fact, he frequently hates on popular youtubers for asking money from their fans or using tactics that allow them to have a little bit more money.

* You'll probably ''never'' hear anyone glad that their Roleplay chatroom hosts dozens of consistent members. This may be a JustifiedTrope -- but rarely; just because people might be upset by not being given an opportunity to join in a storyline without being told or players playing a private story out and not giving others who can contribute a chance to join in, as well as trying to get a story ''everyone'' is involved in going only for one person to suddenly go offline or afk and being forced to either wait for them or continuing without them.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/LimpBizkit and the whole ''Music/NuMetal'' genre in general circa the early 2000s after the release of Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water. In the late 90s they had a reasonable following in the rock/metal world, however were unknown in the pop music charts. Chocolate Starfish was then released at the end of 2000 with several singles charting high and even one single (Rollin') reaching Number One in UK and Ireland, leaving many original fans feeling betrayed that their music was now being listened to by the same people who listened to Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys.
