** Creator/MichaelBay tends to receive all of the scorn of the fan base in spite of simply being a Producer for the film. This tends to be par the course for anything Bay is associated with. In a somewhat ironic turn, it turns out that Bay is actually responsible for ''nixing'' a lot of bad ideas that others wanted to put in, since he's now fairly aware of how a fanbase will react to changes. But, due to being who he is, he ends up being blamed for a lot of the ideas ''he was responsible for nixing''. Essentially, a lot of the people cursing his name should be ''thanking'' him for doing what they wanted!

** Martha had also fallen victim to a Type 3: her character has received criticism for not being confident enough in herself (particularly in her unrequited feelings for the Doctor), and not being convincing as a professional adult. This seems to be based on a misconception by US viewers about the character's intended age: medical students in Britain start studying at age 18, so Martha could well be a teenager, and cannot be any older than 22 or so. There's no in-story reason for her to be particularly worldly-wise.

** In recent years this has become subverted with the emergence of NXT, which Trips is allowed to run unfettered. The NXT product and shows are geenrally well-liked, with good, solidly booked storylines based around solid, fresh talent. This has actually led to fans calling for Vince to retire and turn the main roster over to Triple H to see if he can do the same thing with it.

* Fans of [[spoiler:Agent Coulson]] were quick to call for the head of Creator/JossWhedon, who is after all known for killing fan-favorites, after ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' came out. [[http://www.sfx.co.uk/2012/09/15/avengers-assemble-clark-gregg-and-titus-welliver-agents-of-shield-interviewed/ Apparently, though]], this was part of the overall MarvelCinematicUniverse masterplan, and Whedon didn't get much say in it.

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic often ends up blaming movies for elements that originated from the works they were based on. Case in point, the purple suit worn by Film/ThePhantom, as well as his nickname "The Ghost Who Walks".

* Matt Ward is often blamed for just about everything people don't like from 5th Edition and on in Warhammer40000, most of which were not his fault, or were done on orders from Games Workshop. His rewriting the Necrons backstory was an editorial demand that came down from higher-ups. A controversial story in which Grey Knights murdered an entire convent of Sisters of Battle is actually not that out of character for the Inquisition, with whom the Grey Knights are in lockstep. The change in the meta from largely assault-based to largely shooting-based armies between 5th and 6th Editions was also a change mandated by GW brass to try and sell more models and is not specific to anything Ward did unilaterally. His codices are scrutinized for being overpowered when first released, however PowerCreep has long been part of the game. The new codices are supposed to be more powerful to try and drum up interest and sell more models. (Case in point, the extremely powerful 6th Edition Tau Empire codex wasn't even written by him.) The lack of quality control and playtesting of codices is also the result of a direction change at Games Workshop to generate content in a rapid manner.
** The one thing Ward is guilty of is being a shameless Ultramarines fanboy and interjecting this viewpoint into his fluff at the expense of the pride, history and identity of some other much-beloved Space Marines chapters.

** For most people, the Buffalo Bills' loss at Super Bowl XXV is summed up with two words: "Wide Right". Here are other reasons the Bills lost to the Giants: the Bills were outcoached by the New York Giants, which had the likes of Bill Belichick and Tom Coughlin (both who would become successful coaches in their own right), the Giants having the longest ball possession time in Super Bowl history (40:33), Belichick's game plan which muzzled the Bills' "K-Gun" no-huddle offense, and as for Scott Norwood, it was a 47-yard field goal ''on grass'', and he was not good at kicking field goals on grass (not to mention, while nowhere near impossible, a 47-yarder no chip shot either).

Here are other reasons the Bills lost to the Giants: the Bills were outcoached by the New York Giants, which won in addition to Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells, had the likes of Bill Belichick and Tom Coughlin (both who of whom would become successful coaches in their own right), the Giants having the longest ball possession time in multiple Super Bowl history (40:33), winning head coaches later). The Giants logged 40:33 time of posession (a record still standing as of 2016). There was also Belichick's game plan which muzzled the Bills' "K-Gun" no-huddle offense, and as for offense. Scott Norwood, it Norwood's famous kick was a 47-yard field goal ''on grass'', and he was not good at kicking field goals on grass (not to mention, while nowhere near impossible, a 47-yarder no chip shot either).

* KevinNash claims he didn't book the Starrcade 1998 finish of tazering Goldberg, nor the FingerpokeOfDoom eight days later. Nash became WCW's booker around this time but he claims he knows this for a fact because he still has his pay stubs from WCW and he got paid more once he started booking. He's offered to show them to prove his point.

* David Arquette often gets blamed for winning the Wrestling/{{WCW}} World Heavyweight Championship. Arquette has said several times that as a fan, '''he''' didn't want to win the title. Vince Russo used the leverage in Arquette's contract to force him to accept the title.

** EricBischoff has said in multiple places (like [[RicFlair Ric Flair's]] podcast) that '''he''' booked the controversial Starrcade 1997 finish. Sting showed up on the day of the event pale and out of shape (Sting was struggling with substance abuse and marital problems unbeknownst to Bischoff at that time) and Bischoff panicked. He shortened the match and changed the finish a few hours before showtime. Bischoff is adamant that Hogan lobbied for the original finish to put Sting over clean because of the year-plus that had been put into the build. As for the pacing of the count, Nick Patrick said he simply forgot about the change to the match and counted regularly.
