* Many fans of the ''[[VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans]]'' series pinpoint the FranchiseKiller to when the third and fourth games, ''Big Willy Unleashed'' and ''Path of the Furon'', were developed by two separate studios other than Pandemic Studios (who went defunct around 2007). The drastic style changes and {{Flanderization}} of the main cast didn't help either. These may be the reasons why THQ Nordic (the current owner of the series) have not ported the aforementioned two games to the Playstation 4.

* The 2003 ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' series has gotten hit with this with the conclusion of the manga and the second anime adaptation. The first anime series split off from the manga half way through and ended up creating its own original storyline. This storyline took the CharacterDevelopment of several of the main characters in a different direction than the manga. As a result... Some fans of the manga have now adopted this mindset.

Interestingly, the original manga author not only approved of the different direction, but actually encouraged it.

* ''Film/JurassicParkIII'' is held by some to be the worst film in the ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' franchise. Incidentally, it was the one film Creator/StevenSpielberg did not direct, as well as the first not even nominally based on a Creator/MichaelCrichton novel. That said ''Film/JurassicWorld'' was far better recieved, and it was likewise not directed by Spielberg.

** 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 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]].

* Inverted with ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'', which does not have Thomas Harris attached, but is much better received than Harris' Franchise/HannibalLecter continuation (''Literature/{{Hannibal}}'') and [[FranchiseZombie the prequel he was basically forced to do]] (''Literature/HannibalRising'').

Bear in mind that in the case of many popular movies of a collaborative nature -- Theatre, Movies, TV shows and Comic Books -- there is often a lack of clear information about how much creative control an artist had towards their work, and what the specific contribution by certain figures were in the making of a given work. A great deal of the fan backlash for and against certain works stems from rumor, dated information and lack of clarity and agreement about what made a work great in the first place. So when this trope is invoked, it is most effective when its done with an awareness of what the original creator brought to the project.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' is the most generally successful non-Kojima ''Metal Gear'' game and is praised by most ''Metal Gear'' fans and Kojima himself, but is still somewhat controversial due to the fact Kojima didn't make it (with some fans feeling its tone and gameplay [[AesopAmnesia misses the point of the series]]). Game critics gave it mixed reviews.

* ''Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian''. To the most visible portion of the fanbase, the true Conan stories are the ones written by Howard and only by Howard. The post-Howard writers are referred to as "Conantics," and InternetBackdraft ensues if you admit to liking any of the books by Lin Carter or the others. (The films, curiously, don't receive nearly as much backlash.)

* According to Polygon's oral history of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', many within Square Enix believe that the soul of the series was lost after original creator Creator/HironobuSakaguchi's departure, due to his relaxed and ambitious approach ([[Film/FinalFantasyTheSpiritsWithin sadly, eventually a little too relaxed and ambitious for him to keep his job]]). Creator/TetsuyaNomura has stated that he feels the ''V'' writer and ''VI''-through-''VIII'' director Creator/YoshinoriKitase is the person who really understood Sakaguchi's vision, but also felt that it was impossible to replace Sakaguchi.

* Similarly, not many fans cared for the subsequent incarnations of WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit (by Charles Mintz and Creator/WalterLantz), preferring the originals done by Walt Disney and UbIwerks.
