* ''Film/InterviewWithTheVampire'' vs. ''Film/QueenOfTheDamned''. The two movies were made over ten years apart, with completely different studios, directors, and actors. The themes and tones of the movies were vastly different, and no references were made to characters or plots from the first film, but it was explicitly set afterwards. Both movies being relatively self-contained, [=QotD=] was less of a sequel and more like the closest thing to a ContinuityReboot without actually doing so. ** One factor that probably didn't help was that [[Film/InterviewWithTheVampire Interview]] was based on [[Novel/InterviewWithTheVampire the novel of the same name]], while [[Film/QueenOfTheDamned Queen of the Damned]] was an attempt to squeeze [[Literature/TheVampireLestat two]] [[Literature/QueenOfTheDamned separate]] novels into one film.

* ''[[Series.DeadRingers Dead Ringers]]'' had a sketch in which different versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger came back from the future to warn him not to sign up for any more lousy ''Terminator'' sequels, [[spoiler:eventually reaching [[OverlyLongGag Terminator 23]] before Sarah Connor shot the present Arnie to save the future. To her dismay, another Arnie came back and revealed she is now his co-star in ''Kindergarten Cop 14''!]] [[BigNo Nnnooooo!]]

* The spinoff/sequel to ''Series/That70sShow'', ''That '80s Show'', alienated old viewers and didn't get any new ones.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'''s twelve sequels. The quality of the series is up and down from movie to movie and may range from good to mediocre to poor; most agree that none are a match for Bluth's original film. It's a bad sign when there are more sequels than even horror movie franchises like ''Franchise/{{Halloween}}'', ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'', ''Film/ParanormalActivity'', or ''Franchise/FridayThe13th''.

* Though still funny, the sequel to ''WesternAnimation/DuckAmuck'', ''Rabbit Rampage'', [[RecycledStript reads almost exactly like its predecessor]], only with Bugs Bunny being the character who gets screwed with instead of Daffy Duck.

* ''Fanfic/BesidesTheWillOfEvil'', while it has it's fans, has received a lot more negative reaction than [[Fanfic/ItsADangerousBusinessGoingOutYourDoor it's well liked predecessor.]] The main reasons for this are the BigBad, who is considered a VillainSue and GodModeSue, and the ''much'' darker tone that has gotten to the point DarknessInducedAudienceApathy has kicked in, especially compared to the adventure focused FindTheCure plot the original story had. In addition, due to how the villain escaped his prison, it makes the original story AllForNothing at best and a massive NiceJobBreakingItHero at worst (as [[spoiler:disturbing the World Snake]] ended up awakening the big bad).

* ''The Mouse on the Moon'' was completely devoid of Creator/PeterSellers and brought back very few people from ''Film/TheMouseThatRoared'', one of whom, producer Walter Shenson, made two more [[Film/AHardDaysNight (better]] [[Film/{{Help}} recognized)]] movies with director Richard Lester. Unsurprisingly, the other three "Mouse" novels by Leonard Wibberly (themselves victims of Sequelitis) never made it to the silver screen.

* ''Film/InTheHeatOfTheNight'' had two sequels, 1970's ''They Call Me Mr. Tibbs'' and 1971's ''The Mouse on the Moon'' was completely devoid of Creator/PeterSellers and brought back very few Organization'', that most people from ''Film/TheMouseThatRoared'', one of whom, tend to forget about. It doesn't help that the only people who worked on all three films -- other than Sidney Poitier, who played Tibbs in both sequels -- were Quincy Jones, who provided the jazzy score for each, and producer Walter Shenson, made two more [[Film/AHardDaysNight (better]] [[Film/{{Help}} recognized)]] movies with director Richard Lester.

* Under the name of "Collodi Nipote," Paolo Lorenzini, the nephew of ''Pinocchio'' author Carlo Collodi, wrote six more stories about the little wooden puppet between 1917 and 1954. Let's just say they don't come close to his uncle's masterpiece.

* While ''Theatre/TheBarberOfSeville'' and ''Theatre/TheMarriageOfFigaro'' are well known, though mainly due to AdaptationDisplacement as operas written respectively by Music/GioachinoRossini and Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart, ''La mère coupable ou l'autre Tartuffe'', Beaumarchais' third entry in the "Figaro trilogy," is not so much so.
