* Many ''Doug'' fans claim that "Disney ruined ''Doug''" when they bought the rights to the show and un-cancelled it. In fact, buying ''Doug'' (and slapping their name on it) was the only thing they did to the show. The creator made all the changes himself.

* Much of the Hatedom for ''WesternAnimation/{{Planes}}'' is aimed at Pixar despite the movie being filmed and animated by [=DisneyToon=] Studios.

* When it comes to kids/young adults and their violent acts of crime, the culprit will always be video games, according to the media. Despite many studies that disprove the theories that kids who are exposed to violent video games over an extended period of time will become violent themselves, news outlets and activist groups will always blame video games as the sole defining factor on why someone went on a shooting spree. Remember, video games can be an influence if someone's mental health is bad, but it is never ''the'' cause of violent behavior.

* ''{{Superjail}}'' season 2 received a case of type 5, with Jackson Publick (credited under his actual name Chris [=McCulloch=] ) getting the accusation of "usurping" the show from Christy Karacas, as he was put in charge of being the story-editor and having the final call on scripts. If an episode fell flat, a plot twist was done that a fan didn't like, or if there was less violence, it had to be all on him. In actuality, the season 2 format change was something that Christy Karacas and Stephen Warbrick had wanted to do in hope of breaking away from being formulaic and getting to explore the characters' stories more.

** Also, both her depowering and {{Storm}}'s are often taken as extremes of sexism regardless of ''whose'' order you think it's on. Often ignored is the fact that they were "demoted" to CharlesAtlasSuperpower-wielding {{Badass Normal}}s. If you were really depowering a character because you ''didn't like the idea of strong women,'' you ''wouldn't'' make them Xena-class asskicking machines, which meant that it could have worked in theory. On the other hand, the de-powering period also coincided with her getting beaten up a lot by male villains, which, combined with less restricted content standards, came off as a lot more brutal than they otherwise would, and the idea that Wonder Woman would give up the responsibilities of her position to run a Mod clothing store in New York got dated real fast.

* Fans of the original ''Comicbook/YoungJustice'' comic book attacked the ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' cartoon for excluding WonderGirl while including most of the other Justice League sidekicks. In reality, Wonder Girl was legally barred from appearing in the first season of the show due to rights issues. These same issues had earlier kept the character from appearing on ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', and Wonder Woman from appearing in ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' and ''Series/{{Smallville}}''. She eventually appeared in the second season.

* Bob Budiansky gets a ''lot'' of flak from ''{{Transformers}}'' fans for horrible writing in the [[ComicBook/TheTransformers Marvel comic]], while Simon Furman is praised as the saviour of the series. They tend to ignore the fact that most of Budiansky's work was praised when it was originally released, and he even got a fan letter from StanLee for the "Decepticon Graffiti" story. The majority of Budiansky's work was easily as good as Furman's, but his entire opus was tainted by the burnout he suffered in his last few issues as he tried desperately to keep up with [[MerchandiseDriven Hasbro's demands]]. In fact, some of his popular work is occasionally misattributed to Furman for just this reason.

* While Americans have not taken [[TheBeautifulGame Association Football]] as a spectator sport well, they are often blamed for creating the word Soccer, an alternative word for the sport which is a colloquial abbreviation of association (from assoc.). However the word was actually coined by Charles Wreford Brown, an Oxford student (in England) said to have been fond of shortened forms such as "brekkers" for breakfast and "rugger" for rugby football; and back in the day was used by rich folk to distinguish Association Football from Rugby. When the sport arrived in the U.S. in the late 19th century, it was called Association Football (and was surprisingly quite a popular sport at the time) until after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII; mainly due to the popularity of UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball, and the word Soccer was adopted to differentiate with the two footballs. However since then, soccer's popularity in the US [[DeaderThanDisco would fall into obscurity until recently]], due in thanks to "[[http://www.bigsoccer.com/soccer/roger-allaway/2010/10/25/what-was-the-quot-soccer-war-quot/ soccer war]]" between the country's major league organization and FIFA. This sport's naming has also reigned true in some other countries like Canada, the Caribbean, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand; who have adopted or invented another football code, either as their "main" football or alongside Association Football. However, the British has since grown to hate this word, [[InternetBackdraft and have been hell bent on lambasting the U.S. for it]], never minding that the word came from the same place the modern rules of the game were made, the latter fact the British embrace and [[FanDumb the former fact the British will often deny]].

** In the same vein, a common criticism of the 2011 sequel, ''Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows'', is that it "dumbed down" Sherlock Holmes by largely replacing the mystery and complex deductions with elaborate fight scenes and large-scale action set pieces -- essentially turning Holmes into "Victorian Film/JamesBond". While it's understandable that people would like to see mystery in a movie about Sherlock Holmes, it should be noted that ''A Game of Shadows'' was based (albeit very loosely) on elements of the classic Doyle stories "The Final Problem" and "The Adventure of the Empty House" -- both of which were essentially CloakAndDagger adventure stories, with no central mystery at all.

* WilliamShatner is usually blamed for absolutely everything wrong with ''Film/{{Star Trek V|The Final Frontier}}''. While he made mistakes and his original idea was far too big and polarizing to ever truly be filmable (both of which he admits to, repeatedly, in his various books), the final product was actually a result of these being massively compounded by just about everything that could possibly go wrong with a movie, from delays to poor results from hired companies to equipment malfunction[[note]]not to mention the 1988 Writers' Strike happening smack dab in the middle of a rushed pre-production[[/note]], resulting in the cutting, alteration, or downgrading of numerous scenes. The majority of this was simply beyond his control, and the fact that he even got the movie made in ''any'' coherent form is an accomplishment.

* A lot of ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' fans blame Brett Ratner for every single problem with ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''. Others blame the film's original director, Matthew Vaughn, for screwing the film over by quitting right before the start of filming, and still others hold both men equally to blame. In actual fact, while you could make legitimate criticisms about both Ratner's direction and Vaughn's decision to quit, neither of them were responsible for the storyline. That was about 90% the same as the final film well before Vaughn had signed up, and neither director was permitted to make any serious changes to the screenplay (which, despite him giving "family reasons" for his decision to quit, was apparently a major factor in Vaughn leaving the film). ** Ironically, many fans actually blame ''Bryan Singer'' for everything wrong with ''The Last Stand''. Despite (or perhaps even ''because of'') Singer departing the franchise to direct ''SupermanReturns'', and having nothing to do with ''X3'' at all!

* Roger Moore is often blamed for the Film/JamesBond franchise's turn to comedy in the '70s. But screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz was brought in specifically to add humorous touches to the last (at the time) SeanConnery movie, ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'', which is as campy as any Moore flick. The real reason for the shift in tone was the perceived financial failure of the relatively serious ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService'', which -- while not a big flop as is often believed -- was less profitable than previous films in the series.

* Blaming a lot of the really crappy comics during the SilverAge on UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode ignores the fact that most of these stories were just really bad on their own without any censorship. ** Speaking of the SilverAge, a lot of people blame Fredric Wertham solely for the creation of the Comics Code, while he is only indirectly responsible for it. He published ''Seduction of the Innocent'' which lead to the [[NewMediaAreEvil social panic]], which lead to the Code for sure. However, he was actually relatively moderate on the issue -- he simply wanted comics to have a rating system, not for any remotely objectionable content to be banned.

* The Creator/AdamWest ''Series/{{Batman}}'' TV show is often accused of "ruining" the ''Batman'' franchise and enforcing the idea that comics are for children, whereas ''Comicbook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' and the Creator/TimBurton [[Film/{{Batman}} movie]] are credited with making Batman "[[DarkerAndEdgier serious]]" again. However, as West is quick to point out, the show was ''far less'' ridiculous and campy than most of the SilverAge ''Batman'' comics that were being published at the time.
