The ExecutiveMeddling we're most familiar with is the sort that ruins stories, characters, and entire franchises. So why, some may ask, does the job even exist? Put simply, because quite often they're actually ''right'', it's just the negative effects of ExecutiveMeddling that are always publicized. No creator is perfect, after all; sometimes they really ''do'' make unmarketable stories, DarthWiki/{{Wall Banger}}s, and other mistakes on their own. Even the best need guidance.

ProtectionFromEditors can also foster in some minds a feeling that they are also, by extension, given Protection From ''Critics'' as well, which results in great displeasure whenever any criticism is raised -- even if that criticism is constructive, well-meant, and particularly if it is ''valid''. Expect [[TakeThatCritics snide attacks on anyone who dares criticise them]] to follow.

Contrast ExecutiveVeto, ExecutiveMeddling, ToughActToFollow, ScapegoatCreator. Not entirely uncoincidentally, many creators with ProtectionFromEditors are also {{Small Name Big Ego}}s. MisBlamed might result if the executive is blamed for what it actually the creator's fault. The trope's name is inspired by the [=TCG=] MagicTheGathering, for a card ability that "protects" the card it appears on from something else in the game outlined by the ability itself. ("Protection From X", where "X" in this case is editors.)
