* Adapted anime may be subject to this, where the show is praised for scenes and events that would only happen later in its source material rather than what is shown in the episodes themselves. This phenomenon tends to crop up especially for adaptations of books or light novels, since fewer people outside Japan may even come in contact with the books until ''after'' the show gets popular in their area.

Until that point, the fanbase may have to go with word-of-mouth from the few who did read it.

* Similar to the above, the hype for ''VideoGame/NoMansSky'' was so high that when Kotaku's Jason Schreier [[https://kotaku.com/sources-no-mans-sky-delayed-1778797365 reported on sources saying that the game was delayed for two months]], [[https://kotaku.com/i-got-death-threats-for-reporting-on-a-video-game-delay-1779617741 he was sent endless hate mail and death threats]] until Creator/{{Sony}} [[https://kotaku.com/its-official-no-mans-sky-delayed-to-august-1779236658 confirmed the news]]. [[CaptainObvious In case it needs to be said]], this was in May 2016, [[[[FanDumba month before the original release date]].

* Creator/StephenSondheim has a reputation as the greatest of songwriters in late 20th century musical theatre (if not musical theatre as a whole), but of his solo works -- as opposed to often-produced shows like ''Theatre/WestSideStory'' that he only contributed lyrics to early in his career -- few are produced on any regular basis beyond theatre hotbeds such as New York and London, and they usually don't run for long, owing to his tendency for {{Audience Alienating Premise}}s. Many of those shows, such as ''Pacific Overtures'', ''Merrily We Roll Along'', ''Theatre/{{Assassins}}'', and ''Theatre/{{Passion}}'', were flops in their original productions and still haven't caught on with the general public in restagings. (The key exceptions to this rule are ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' and ''Theatre/IntoTheWoods''.)

* Due to the negative feedback about the fourth edition of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', many gamers have an utterly unhealthy love of ''TabletopGames/{{Pathfinder}}'' as it's an outgrowth of the game's third edition (which, ironically, also had a loudly negative reception and people rushing back to second edition). This coupled up with fourth edition being marketed aggressively towards new players (to the point of [[WeDontSuckAnymore actively insulting]] the previous editions and those that enjoyed them), with Wizards of the Coast supporting game shops to run "Encounter" events to show off 4E, to result in a lot of new gamers praising Pathfinder to death in order to agree with older gamers rather than trying it and seeing if they liked it first.

* William Shirer characterized ''Literature/MeinKampf'' as the bestselling book in Germany between 1934-1944 that was never read by most Germans who bought it.

* William Shirer characterized ''Literature/MeinKampf'' as the bestselling book in Germany between 1934-1944 that was never read by most Germans who bought it. This may or may not have been a face saving lie on the part of many Germans after the war, as there is actually ''a lot'' of stuff in the book that foreshadows what Hitler did when he had the means to do so.

* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' is this by the sheer virtue that it A) has only been staged in New York and B) is damn near impossible to get tickets to, with what tickets that are available at a pseudo-affordable cost being several months in the future, likely after some of the original cast will have left. The show has some diehard fans who literally have never experienced any part of it outside of the cast soundtrack and certain promotional materials released online or on television. This is now somewhat averted, as it has expanded to other cities and has a national tour (although those tickets often sell out months in advance as well). There is also some talk of possibly having a video release or, in the more distant future, an outright adaptation on television or the movies.

* In the 1990s, the success of the movies of ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' and ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' meant that many in the West professed to be 'into manga', in many cases without ever seeing any more examples of the form than those two films. Or appreciating the difference between manga and anime. Or that there's a ''lot'' of different genres within the anime/manga world, besides {{dystopia}}n sci-fi. This has created a weird situation where many fans of old-school anime want the industry to go back to "the way it used to be," i.e. focused on dystopian sci-fi; but it never actually ''was'' focused on that genre. [[TrueArtIsAngsty For some reason]], the [[{{Kawaisa}} other types of shows]] didn't start getting imported until years later.
