* A common criticism leveled against ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII''. The director of the first game and its spiritual prequel VideoGame/DemonsSouls, Hidetaka Miyazaki, had only a minor supervisory role in Dark Souls 2, as he was busy directing {{VideoGame/Bloodborne}} (which would eventually become acclaimed in its own right). Many fans attribute Miyazaki's absence as one of the main causes behind the game's many shortcomings, though an interview that clarified that the game had a TroubledProduction lessened this a bit. Even with the DLC content, which is considered superior to the main game, many fans denounce it and DS2 as a whole to be inferior to the Miyazaki-helmed games.

** In the case of ''Daredevil'', the MCU-set [[Series/{{Daredevil|2015}} Netflix series]] really was received better than [[Film/{{Daredevil}} the Fox movie]], reinforcing the view. The same goes for Season Two's treatment of the Punisher, which received high praise when [[Film/ThePunisher1989 his]] [[Film/ThePunisher2004 own]] [[Film/PunisherWarZone movies]] didn't; even earning him his own spinoff show. Elektra, also debuting in Season Two, didn't get the same universal praise the Punisher did, but it's probably safe to say that it was a better response than [[Film/{{Elektra}} her own movie]] got.

Elektra Natchios, also debuting added in Season Two, season 2, didn't get quite the same universal praise as the Punisher did, Punisher, but it's probably safe to say that it still was a much better response than [[Film/{{Elektra}} her own movie]] got.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' is this for many fans [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls of the original series]] since ''Creator/CraigMcCracken'' was nowhere involved in this version (heck he even stated in an interview he ''didn't want'' the series to be rebooted). Though the original series was guilty of this as well since Craig left the show after the fourth season and the episodes in the following seasons declined in quality.

* Only the original ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' series involved Creator/ManOfActionStudios. The sequels, ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' and ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' are usually held to be of lower quality thanks to DwayneMcDuffie not really getting the series, despite the high quality of his [[MilestoneComics previous]] [[JusticeLeagueUnlimited work]]. ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' tried to go back to the original's style and quality, but [[BrokenBase fans are perpetually divided as to how well that succeeded]] and it ended up being something of a FranchiseKiller. [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing There was much rejoicing]] when it was announced that Man of Action was returning to helm the franchise reboot.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' fans got this attitude after Disney tried to do a season without GregWeisman and botched it up.

* The ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series gets this as well. First there were the official-but-subpar games for the PC and the GameGear that were not developed by Capcom. Most of the later ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' games also tend to receive this treatment, since Keiji Inafune intended to end the series after ''X5'' but it was [[ExecutiveMeddling continued without his knowledge or input]]. And now that Inafune has left Capcom, faith in the series has now dropped to an all-time low; though that may have less to do with Capcom's potential ability to do the series justice, and more to do with the fact the company seems like [[ScrewedByTheNetwork it's trying to bury the series]].

Added DiffLines:

** Fans of the original games often point out that the storytelling and roleplay is less interesting in the games made by Bethesda. This is more or less true - Black Isle were renowned for their writing and would later go on to produce ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' and the monumentally verbose ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', whereas Bethesda arguably have a more action-oriented approach to game design.

** ''Franchise/DragonBall'' gets the same sentiment. The ''Dragon Ball'' movies are considered subpar to good, with a few fan-favorites like the Cooler and Broly movies, except movie 11 which is considered the worst, along with movies 1, 9, and 13. The two movies with direct input from Toriyama, ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', are universally consider the best movies with rave reviews. They are also canon and been adaptive into ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''. ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' is often use as case study of what happens when Toriyama has little to no involvement. And let's not even get started on ''Film/DragonballEvolution''.

* In an interesting case that actually does mix in a bit of MyRealDaddy, while Ciro Nieli has remained on the new [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 Ninja Turtles]] cartoon, Joshua Sternin and J.R. Ventimilia, who were also heavily involved with its development as well as the original head writers for the series, both took off after the first season was over. Opinions on seasons two and onward have notably been much more divided between fans.

* ''Film/TheBourneSeries'': ZigZagged with MyRealDaddy, as one may argue that the Bourne series [[HasTwoMommies has two daddies]] with directors Creator/DougLiman and Creator/PaulGreengrass. With ''Film/TheBourneIdentity'', Liman gave the film a unique style, but it was Greengrass who would flesh it out in its sequels ''Film/TheBourneSupremacy'' and ''Film/TheBourneUltimatum'', with Liman still involved as executive producer, garnering even greater acclaim. But when Greengrass turned down the offer to direct ''Film/TheBourneLegacy'', Creator/MattDamon left with him, saying he wouldn't do any more movies without him, and Liman left too. This is part of why ''Legacy'' hasn't been as well-received as its predecessors. Though it should be noted that Tony Gilroy wrote all four films (and directed ''Legacy'').
