* Many ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' fans greatly dislike Oogtar the caveboy from the ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld'' cartoon, who was essentially an obnoxious replacement for a major character from the games (Toad), despite the fact that no cavepeople, including Oogtar, ever appeared in the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' video game.

Didn't help that the cartoon already had [[EnsembleDarkhorse Yoshi]] for that kind of role, meaning Oogtar was completely pointless.

* Music/FaithNoMore both inverted and played this one straight. Inverted in that their singer on the first two albums, Chuck Mosely, was unceremoniously fired from the band and replaced by MikePatton, and you can count the number of people who thought this was a bad thing on the fingers of one hand. However, since Jim Martin departed in 1993 following the release of ''Angel Dust'', a series of guitarists appeared and each one was given grief simply for not being Jim. Even when they reformed in 2009 with the same lineup they had since 1996, some people were upset because Jim wasn't involved.

* ''Film/SupermanIII'': While viewers were looking forward to see how Clark's relationship with Lois would develop, actress Margot Kidder argued with the producers over the firing of original director Creator/RichardDonner. As a result she was reduced to a cameo, and her role as Superman's love interest filled by Lana Lang.

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' set up [[Comicbook/{{Agent 13}} Sharon Carter]] to be Cap's new love interest, a move that annoyed fans of the enormously popular Peggy Carter, Steve's love interest from the [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger the first movie]].

Added DiffLines:

* Deliberately [[InvokedTrope invoked]] with Wrestling/JasonJordan in regards to Wrestling/TheShield. After Wrestling/DeanAmbrose got put on the shelf for nine months, Jordan's {{kayfabe}} father Wrestling/KurtAngle allowed Jordan to replace Ambrose as Wrestling/SethRollins' tag team partner, allowing them to win the RAW Tag Team Titles. Jordan subsequently tried to take Ambrose's place in the Shield. That's where the invoked part comes into play -- not only did the fans hate Jordan for trying, but so did the Shield themselves. Rollins can barely tolerate Jordan (with it becoming increasingly obvious how much he wants Ambrose in Jordan's place), only does so for the titles, and finds his patience increasingly worn out by Jordan landing them in unnecessary fights. Wrestling/RomanReigns can't even bother with that much, having taken Ambrose's injury really badly and blatantly hating Jordan as a result.

** Also, ''[[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stich's Great Escape]]'', which replaced ''The [=ExtraTERRORestrial=] Alien Encounter''. The horror show in the dark premise of the original production was replaced with a ''comedy'' show in the dark, which only served to annoy adults while still frightening children.

* Another voice actor example in ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': Arnold had four voice actors throughout the series (five if you count the pilot episode), but his final voice actor, Creator/AlexDLinz is near-universally disliked by the fandom for two reasons. One, Linz's voice was higher-pitched than the previous actors making Arnold sound too young (much like Myles Jeffery above). Two, he replaced Spencer Klein, who most fans consider to be ''the'' Arnold despite the fact that Klein was the third person to voice him [[note]]though he lasted the longest, his take on Arnold is how fanfic writers usually portray him and unlike his predecessors Toran Caudell and Phillip Van Dyke, Klein did not portray any other character after his voice broke.[[/note]] and played Arnold when he was at his most bland (as Arnold became an OutOfFocus, VanillaProtagonist to allow other characters to develop). Linz only voices Arnold in the last three episodes and when the GrandFinale known as ''[[WesternAnimation/HeyArnoldTheJungleMovie The Jungle Movie]]'' was UnCanceled, they cast Mason Vale Cotton (who sounds closer to the others) as Arnold.

** ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'': Count Dooku is a very cool character in his own right, but at the time many fans dismissed him for not being [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Darth]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Maul]]. Who was himself very cool, but no Darth Vader.

Added DiffLines:

* Many fans of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' view [[SixthRanger Starlight Glimmer]] as an underdeveloped {{Expy}} to Sunset Shimmer, [[CanonForeigner who remains confined to the]] ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]'' spin-off. Starlight committed far worse crimes, but was even more EasilyForgiven than Sunset (lacking her BreakTheHaughty), wasting the chance [[ReformedButRejected to put her through]] what [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap redeemed Sunset to the fandom]]. Reception to Starlight's redemption [[BaseBreakingCharacter have been mixed]], suffering from ToughActToFollow.
* ''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.

** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', despite the usual reaction it got from the UnpleasableFanbase, quickly became a fan favorite - and then, it was [[ScrewedByTheNetwork swiftly canceled - toyline and all]] - for a very... [[LoveItOrHateIt polarizing]] [[Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen movie]], and the [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime next series]] was already catching some flak just based on the preview images for being extremely [[RecycledTheSeries Movie-based]]. Needless to say, ''Animated'' fans were not pleased. After more designs and characters had been revealed, many of them very ''Animated''-like, fans have begun to see ''Prime'' as some kind of copycat, an inferior, pandering substitute at best. However after the show had actually started airing, [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap many fans changed their mind about the ordeal]], calling ''Prime'' the best thing ever, especially those that hated ''Animated'' to begin with. But never mind that, even some (former) ''Animated'' fans were declaring its cancellation a good riddance!

* Fans of ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues'' absolutely hate Joe for the simple fact that he replaced Steve, and for only that reason.
