Added DiffLines:

Before the passage of endangered species legislation, many animals, specifically dangerous animals like lions and gorillas, tended to be portrayed as the antagonist, making it okay for the dashing lead to beat the crap out of them and even kill them at times. Nowadays, this type of treatment offends many people, not just animal activists, so this has heavily toned down (for a great example, compare the original ''Film/KingKong1933'' to ''Film/KingKong2005'').

* The film ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' was responsible for the demonization of [[ThreateningShark sharks]] in public consciousness, which would result in a fierce backlash once further research was done on them. Even Peter Benchley, the writer of the original novel, came to regret his impact on the reputation of sharks, and became a shark conservationist.

* In Germany, Swedes were seen as brutal, torture-loving mercenaries until far into the 19th century due to their involvement in the [[ThirtyYearsWar 30 Years War]].

Until fairly recently, in the western world, [[AllGaysArePedophiles gay men were considered the same as pedophiles]], and lesbians were viewed as either evil (sometimes oddly asexual) succubi who [[LesbianVampire tempt pure women away]] from their [[{{EntitledToHaveYou}} God-given]] duty to be sexually available to men, or [[StrawFeminist man-hating raging feminists]] who would enjoy nothing more than severing a man's genitalia and set them on fire, if they were even acknowledged to exist at all. Changing times have resulted in more out-and-out gay people in Western media. [[NoBisexuals Don't expect to see any bisexuals, though]], unless EveryoneIsBi.

* There was a brief window during World War II where Russians were America's heroic allies. Thus, ''{{Casablanca}}'' (1942) and ''Film/MissionToMoscow'' (1943) contained some of the last depictions of sympathetic Russians for twenty years.

** Also note that ''gauche'' is still used as a synonym for something being unacceptable, unfashionable, or a politically incorrect faux pas, while ''adroit'' is a word with positive connotations (agile, quick, clever). And the word "dexterous" has also come to mean being agile and clever, while "sinister" is a synonym for dark, wicked, and evil.

This even extends to people who don't have a particular hand to use in situations. If they can't use both hands the common term to use is "deux mains gauches" and if they can use them the often used term is "ambidextre".

* {{Pirates}} are often depicted with peglegs or hooks, though this may be more to reinforce their [[{{Badass}} badassery]] than villainy.
