* The first two ''Film/XMen'' films were directed by Creator/BryanSinger, while the third one, ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'', was helmed by Brett Ratner, and is considered by many fans to be a huge step down in quality. ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', which was produced and co-written by Singer, was much better received. Ultimately cemented with ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' by having Singer back in the director's chair and getting an overwhelmingly positive reception, with many calling it the best in the franchise so far.

''Film/XMenApocalypse'', however, proved to be much more [[LoveItOrHateIt divisive]] in comparison to Singer's previous efforts.

* ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' - Ron Gilbert worked on the first two games, which are beloved by fans, after which he left Lucasarts. The first game he didn't work on, The Curse Of Monkey Island, was well received and even Gilbert says he enjoyed it, though noting he had a different plan for Monkey Island 3. The fourth game, Escape From Monkey Island, however, was a disaster, and had many fans feeling that Lucasarts were doing a disservice to Gilbert's creation. This was largely due to the glitchiness of the game (which was ironed out somewhat in the PS2 port), the non-point and click controls, PolygonCeiling graphics, the retconning, the unfunny and stereotypical humor, the reliance on time and memory based puzzles, and nonsensical portions like Monkey Kombat. Ron Gilbert was involved with the first two games' remakes and oversaw some of VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland (which was a step up from Escape, though not to the degree most fans wanted), but doesn't have particular interest in working on the next parts.

* Likewise fellow ''Cartoon Network'' series ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' was this following ''The Ego Trip'' movie as Creator/GenndyTartakovsky had moved on to make ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''. Not only did the show suffer an unpleasant redesign but fans felt they largely flanderized a lot of the characters. Curiously both the ''Powerpuff Girls'' and this show's later seasons were produced by Chris Salvio who would go on to make ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

** 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 has since struck a deal to reboot Spider-Man again with Marvel co-producing.

* The ''TonyHawksProSkater'' series is a Neversoft creation. However, the company would relegate other companies to work on the various ports of the series, and said ports are nowhere near as high quality as the ones done by Neversoft. For many fans, 'Shaba Games' brings to mind cheapness, poor graphics and glitches, most notably in the PS1 port of Tony Hawks Pro Skater 4. Neversoft pulled out of the series entirely after ''Proving Ground'', and Activision gave the following installments to other subsidiaries to the point ''Ride'' and ''Shred'' [[FranchiseKiller killed the series]] - aside from a remake of the original and a phone-only game.

* ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' was starting to receive this... until the beta was leaked. Of course, ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' fans should be reminded that the original creators brought us ''VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''GilmoreGirls''. Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband Daniel left the show after season 6. Opinions on the following season 7 differ but it's generally acknowledged that the show just wasn't the same afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

* The first two seasons of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', where creator Constance M. Burge acted as the show's creative lead while Brad Kern handled the showrunning duties, are usually regarded as being by far and away better than the rest of the show's run, where Kern alone was in charge of things.
