** The highly unpopular "One-Step Changers" and other simplified ''Transformers'' merch aimed strictly at very young kids have replaced much of the "regular" toy lines in Europe in the early 2010s. Many large retailer chains carry them in mass quantities, with the more detailed and highly regarded ''Generations'' toys, which for years have been unavailable, still being rare and hard to find. The alleged reason for this distribution method is that there aren't as many older fans living in the affected territories as in the States or Japan, and low-quality, simplified toys based on current cartoons or movies are easier to sell to kids.

* Starting with his 2014 album ''Man Against Machine'', Music/GarthBrooks' longtime RecordProducer Allen Reynolds had retired, so Brooks' sound engineer Mark Miller (not the lead singer of Sawyer Brown) took over the producer's chair. Many fans have noticed that Miller's production is very light and muffled, with tinny sounding vocals. "People Loving People" and "Baby, Let's Lay Down and Dance" in particular have been criticized as sounding more like demos recorded on someone's phone.

* Pretty much any {{Long Runner|s}} newspaper comic will get hit with this when a new creative team takes over, as the new team usually has little interest other than [[MoneyDearBoy keeping a popular name alive as long as humanly possible]]. For instance, when Jeff [=MacNelly=] died in 2000, the duties on ''ComicStrip/{{Shoe}}'' were handed over to artist Gary Brookins, with assistance from longtime strip assistant Chris Cassatt (until his own death in 2013) and [=MacNelly's=] wife, Susie. (Brookins had already taken over [=MacNelly's=] other strip ''ComicStrip/{{Pluggers}}'' in 1997, and started doing ''Shoe'' dailies a year before [=MacNelly's=] death. He also took over [=MacNelly's=] duties as illustrator for Creator/DaveBarry columns and books.) Under their watch, ''Shoe'' went from what had once been a fairly popular and often topical strip (much of the humor in the strip's prime was political, and a mid-1980s story where [[BootCampEpisode a character enrolled in Camp LeJeune under the false impression that it was a summer camp]] became very popular with fans) to a forgettable deluge of lame one-liners about getting old, not understanding women, or not understanding men.
* A notable inversion is ''ComicStrip/{{BC}}'', which was getting increasing derision and vitriol for Johnny Hart's increasingly prominent [[AuthorTract shoehorning of his religious views]] into [[IssueDrift what had previously been]] a whimsical strip about silly cavemen. After he died, the strip went to his grandsons and daughter, who more-or-less reverted it to the lighthearted comedy strip it had been before.
* General consensus is that ''ComicStrip/{{Heathcliff}}'' went downhill after creator George Gately died in 2001 and handed the strip to his nephew, Peter Gallagher. Under his watch, the strip became a lot more nonsensical, adding unnecessary running gags such as the Garbage Ape, and a notorious joke where one of the mice threatens to unfriend Heathcliff on Facebook.

*** On the plus side, Matt Striker has taken his place on SmackDown!, but his ECW replacement (Byron Saxton) isn't exactly a perfect substitute, though popular enough.
*** The hatred (and the 'Cole Miners' fanbase) for Michael Cole in 2010-2012 (largely due to his ridiculous fanboying of Wrestling/TheMiz) until the writers gave him legitimate CharacterDevelopment and became a damn near evil heel and gave him a real feud (and ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} 27'' match) against Wrestling/JerryLawler. Also the Smackdown table was joined by Wrestling/BookerT. He got turned face again, and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap saved]], possibly for life, after the Lawler heart attack.

* While Music/{{Suffocation}} fans didn't ''dislike'' Ricky Myers at all (indeed, the consensus was that he did a very solid job as their touring vocalist), they made it very clear that they would have much rather had Frank Mullen up onstage than Myers.

This has surprisingly been subverted with Kevin Muller; while they still miss Frank, Kevin's energy and surprising vocal similarity to a young Frank has managed to win over most of the fanbase.

* This happens in the Series/PowerRangersTurbo Movie when Rocky get injured during martial arts practice and has to be replaced by [[spoiler:his younger and generally more annoying younger brother.]] Behind the scenes this was done to help sell the movie to younger audiences and to fill in the blue ranger role after the actor who portrayed Rocky was hurt in a similar way.

* Many fans of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' view [[SixthRanger Starlight Glimmer]] as an poorly done {{Expy}} to Sunset Shimmer, [[CanonForeigner who remains confined to the]] ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]'' spin-off. Starlight committed far worse crimes than Sunset, but was even more EasilyForgiven than Sunset (lacking her BreakTheHaughty); being instantly forgiven by the town she enslaved, wasting the chance [[ReformedButRejected to put her through]] what [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap redeemed Sunset to the fandom]]. Reception to Starlight's redemption [[BaseBreakingCharacter have been mixed]], coming off as a ToughActToFollow at best.

** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree'': While a majority of the fandom disliked Flash Sentry in the Equestria Girls films due to being a SatelliteLoveInterest to Twilight, the fourth film introduces Timber Spruce who repeated his mistakes. And since Flash's popularity had been slowly rising over the years his supporters weren't happy that he was pushed to the background.
