* After the release of the third ''Franchise/MassEffect'' game and the resulting controversy regarding the endings, many fans were saying that the fault was with Mac Walters, and that Drew Karpyshan, who was the lead writer on the first game and co-lead with Walters for the second but worked on ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' instead of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', would have presented a more satisfying conclusion.

Turned UpToEleven with ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', which had next to no involvement from any of the first game's developers, and was ''not'' kindly received by fans or gamers in general.

Added DiffLines:

** In a case of this applying to both the X-Men franchise and Marvel-based movies as a whole, ''Film/{{Logan}}'' also managed to avert this, being acclaimed for its adult themes and drama that would also be unable to fit within the more family-friendly MCU. In addition, Bryan Singer was not involved in this film, but that ultimately didn't hurt it.
** Whilst the ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' is the lowest-grossing film in the MCU as well as one of the least acclaimed, most people agreed that it was still superior to the [[Film/{{Hulk}} 2003 film]] directed by Creator/AngLee. When Creator/EdwardNorton was [[TheOtherDarrin replaced]] by Creator/MarkRuffalo, this sentiment only increased, though the [[ScrewedByTheLawyers complicated licensing]] employed by Universal combined with two underperforming films means that a solo film with Ruffalo is unlikely.

** With the release of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' this trope is now being played totally straight by fans who feel profoundly insulted by the very existence of the film because Lucas wasn't involved with it at all [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks and thought it borrowed too much from the original trilogy]]. Creator/JJAbrams is being painted as a pretender to the throne who mistakenly believes his fan fiction could ever "count" the way the Lucas-made films do.

And now, they're not very happy that he is replacing Creator/ColinTrevorrow as director for ''Episode IX''.

** Zigzagged with ''Franchise/SpiderMan'', as the first two films of [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy the original trilogy]] are well-regarded but the third is divisive; and [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries the following reboot]] suffered some from being a FranchiseZombie, and ''both'' cases had ExecutiveMeddling to blame for most of their problems. Sony since struck a deal to [[Film/SpiderManHomecoming reboot Spider-Man again with Marvel co-producing]], and his debut in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' was seen by many as [[EnsembleDarkhorse a highlight of the film]]. However, quite a few vocal fans questioned this viewpoint, pointing out that the MCU took even greater liberties than Sony on their own did, Sony did do a pretty accurate version of Spider-Man in ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', several things in ''Homecoming'' (including the casting of Creator/TomHolland as Peter) were due to Sony, and that in recent years, [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay some of the]] [[ComicBook/DanSlottSpiderMan stuff Marvel did]] [[WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan on their own]] isn't looked on real fondly.

** To only a slightly lesser extent, the Fleischers' ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'' cartoons. Many of those are considered to be among the created classic cartoons even made, while the cartoons produced by Famous Studios are notorious for being StrictlyFormula and heavy use of RecycledInSPACE.

* A lot of people feel this way about the handling of ComicBook/BuckyBarnes by anyone other than Ed Brubaker. While Brubaker didn't ''create'' Bucky, he did redefine him and was the one to give him the Winter Soldier identity, the role the character is now much more famous for. This gave Brubaker uncontested MyRealDaddy status over Bucky. Some people just don't like when other characters handle Bucky, especially since a lot of the time, it tends to result in him either regressing (such as being flippant about killing) or adding things to his history that hurt the original story (Rick Remender added that Bucky ''could'' somewhat fight his programming).

** Averted however with ''VideoGame/MegaManDrWilysRevenge'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManIII''-''[[VideoGame/MegaManV V]]'' for the GameBoy, and the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series on the GameBoyAdvance; while they were outsourced to other developers, the developers in question (Minakuchi Engineering for the Game Boy games and Inti Creates for the ''Zero'' series) actually understood the series, ensuring that the games were well-received by fans.

* ''Franchise/SilentHill'', which has become a BrokenBase since the breakup of Team Silent and the series being outsourced to Western development teams. The absence of Akira Yamaoka's soundtrack work on ''Downpour'' is already getting this reaction from some.
** On the other hand, Creator/HideoKojima and Creator/GuillermoDelToro's [[VideoGame/SilentHills take on the franchise]] (or at least the playable teaser for it) was generally well-received. Whether or not the full game would have lived up to the hype, we'll probably never know, now that Konami cancelled it.

** There's been
a BrokenBase since the breakup of Team Silent and Silent, even as far back as ''VideoGame/SilentHill4TheRoom'', only made worse by the series being outsourced to Western development teams. The only game not widely hacked and bashed since then was ''VideoGame/SilentHillDownpour''[[note]]even then, the most frequent reaction is that it's SoOkayItsAverage[[/note]], and the absence of Akira Yamaoka's Creator/AkiraYamaoka's soundtrack work on ''Downpour'' it is already getting this reaction from some.
