* It's only been in small capacities, but the members of TeamFourStar have started to be included in actual "Dragonball" projects, like "Xenoverse" and "Resurrection: F."

** It also helps that his writing and understanding of the characters and source material has improved a ''lot'' since he started out with the gig, and the post-''Worlds Collide'' timeline reset cleaning up much of the messy comics-only material and moving it the comics closer in line with the games, due to the legal mess surrounding Ken Penders. * Speaking of Ian Flynn, he also wrote the ''Comicbook/MegaMan'' comic (until the indefinite hiatus) to incredible acclaim with an impressive AdaptationExpansion (including quite a few original characters who are mostly loved by fans), displaying an incredible understanding of the source material. It's not hard to find people who can remark that the Mega Man comics are some of the best-written comics they've ever read in recent years. Unfortunately, Archie's financial troubles mean that we won't see more of this anytime soon, as far as we know.

* ReginaldHudlin is a fan of ComicBook/BlackPanther. After he started to write his adventures, T'Challa was turned into a GodModeSue, Wakanda into MarySuetopia, and {{Storm}} from ''X-Men'' [[TokenRomance married BP]] and have everybody near him carry {{Idiot Ball}}s.

** Since the series is up to its '''sixth(!)''' entry, it's all been confirmed that the ''only'' canon R.E. character to get any real dignity next to Alice is Albert Wesker, the BigBad of the series. Recent entries into the games also affect the movies as well, such as the Plagas and elements from ''Resident Evil 5'' being introduced in a setting that ''never brought them up''. Any canon character who is lucky enough to come back after the film they were introduced in still finds themselves without a point, even the games' most popular character Leon S. Kennedy, who somehow must have survived that fatal shooting...

* The ''Film/ResidentEvil'' movies are not canon, but whatever canon characters that appear ending up playing second fiddle to the MarySue protagonist, played by the writer-director's girlfriend/wife. A blink-and-miss newspaper clip of an 'Officer Kennedy' being shot and killed, in any other series, it'd be a joke, but just infuriating when it's clear no one could steal Miss Sue's spotlight.

** Still, he is quite aware of the PowerPerversionPotential of certain superheroes and CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass characteristics of characters like Franchise/TheFlash and Comicbook/PlasticMan and plays those up when he gets the chance to write them (not to mention the PhysicalGod aspects of someone with a Franchise/GreenLantern Ring). The only one he really seems to hate (and whom constantly gets the [[TheWorfEffect short end of the stick]]) is ''Franchise/{{Superman}}''.

* The ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' had been run by creator Hiroaki Yatoriyama from the beginning all the way until ''Soulcalibur IV''. Then he stepped down as leader, and in his place was director Daishi Odashima and producer Hisaharu Tago. These two were the ones responsible for ''Soulcalibur V''. Many noted the [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks changes they made]], due to having a 17 year TimeSkip. This meant [[ReplacementScrappy replacing many of the veterans]] with blatantly {{anime}}-inspired characters, and a story that focused entirely on Patroklos Alexander, son of series veteran Sophitia, on his quest to save his sister Pyrrha. It's been pointed out that the whole story and characters feel very much like personal {{fan fiction}} being made into reality, instead of an actual sequel to ''Soulcalibur''. Even from a gameplay perspective, it borrowed many of its gameplay mechanics from ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' (and Daishi wasn't shy to admit being a fan of ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Third Strike]]''). Now both of those men are gone, and the series is now under the leadership of Masaki Hoshino. Only time will tell what he will do with the franchise as a whole, but so far he's made two poorly received FreeToPlay games, ''Lost Swords'' and ''Unbreakable Soul'', that were ultimately terminated from service. Many have pointed out Hoshino's marketing is based on [[SexSells sex appeal]], something that was downplayed when Daishi was in charge, and has been compared to ''VideoGame/{{Dead or Alive}}''.

** On the other hand, fans have had no problem with Nick Roche and James Roberts, who made a short ContinuityPorn story that [[AuthorsSavingThrow used elements]] [[ArcWelding of McCarthy's run]] to turn Prowl into a bona-fide MagnificentBastard, and created new, likable personalities for a half-dozen characters in ''ComicBook/TransformersLastStandOfTheWreckers''. Roberts has been continuing the process in ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'', giving major screentime and development the fans are enjoying to even more characters who previously had little to no exposure.
