* ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} is often a victim of this trope too. While he's never been the most popular X-Man, the main reason for those who dislike him stems from the way [[TheBusCameBack he was written back into the comics]] after leaving to be with his new wife and son. Because of a writer who was a fan of the original five, Cyclops and Jean were returned and reunited, but while it wasn't NEARLY as cut and dry as many remember it, it basically involved Scott leaving and through a series of convoluted events was unable to find his wife and son, believed them dead, and so resumed a relationship with Jean. Because of THAT, there's many people who now hate him, and it affected how he was written. Some writers deliberately write him as unlikable because they dislike him, and because of others reading him like that, its caused his character to be degenerated quite a bit by some writers.

While he's never been the most popular X-Man, X-Man (he's always had at least his share of fans, [[BaseBreaker but he has even more haters]]...and used to also have a lot of readers just bored by him, but thanks to this trope he's more divisive than ever), the main reason for those who dislike him stems from the way [[TheBusCameBack he was written back into the comics]] after leaving to be with his new wife and son.

* The Horror film genre itself has been accused of this. In the sense that it's keeping all the divisive tropes around because they think it's the norm for the genre.

** [[AvertedTrope Apparently]], J.J. Abrams was chosen to be the creator of [[Film/StarTrek the new movie]] because he was only a ''casual'' fan of the series. Similarly, Gene Roddenberry is said to have encouraged ''Next Generation'' writers ''not'' to catch up on the original series; he didn't want the new show trying to imitate the old.
*** While Abrams was admittedly a casual fan, his colleagues and screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are themselves admitted fanboys.
** [[http://stardestroyer.net/Empire/Essays/BrainBugs.html This admittedly pro-Star Wars fan]] illustrates a theory of how this might have happened to Star Trek canon.
*** And in case anyone still thinks "Asylum" is too strong a word, this article exposes a downright schizoid trend of growing [[EpilepticTrees strange stuff]] out of initially innocuous details.

* The developers of ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' where big fans of the original ''VideoGame/XCom'' and really wanted to do justice to the franchise. Strangely this was enforced too, allegedly any new comer to the team had to complete the original game before they could start work, leaving fans wondering [[NintendoHard how the game ever managed to be made.]]

* CantrII: The creator has largely left the game, leaving it to some staff to manage things. Over time, this has resulted in what has been referred to as the [[DrunkWithPower Internet]] [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem Illness]]. Basically, any [[{{GIFT}}normal person getting a chance to live out their powertrip fantasies, and going for broke]]. HilarityEnsues

Added DiffLines:

* Parodied in [[WebVideo/UltraFastPony Ultra Fast Pony]], when a "writer strike" has lead to the show having to resort to hiring a fan who said they would work for free, if the were allowed to be in an episode. Cue every negative FanFiction Stereo-type ever.

* 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."

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
