* Yahtzee of ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' leveled this accusation at Creator/{{Nintendo}}, citing it as a problem he had with ''SuperSmashBros Brawl'', despite the fact that there hadn't been a new ''SuperSmashBros'' game for more than six years, long enough for some entire game ''series'' to come out. It's also his main beef with all Nintendo franchises and ''SuperMarioBros'' in particular (though he complains more about setting and character than gameplay with regards to {{Sequelitis}}).

Examples Are Not General Keep it an example
* This is quite an unusual situation for anime, because much of the time they're essentially ads for the manga, and unsatisfyingly feature NoEnding or a GeckoEnding. It's hard to find a popular one-shot show that doesn't have fans clamoring for sequels or remakes, as you can see by the lack of examples (only one at time of writing).

* Horror movie fans seem predisposed to hate sequels and prequels, though there are a few exceptions.

* {{Sequelphobi|c}}a is the reason Creator/MasahiroSakurai stepped down as president of HAL Labs. He was tired of people demanding ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' sequels (even if the game was a sequel). He was even hesitant to work on ''Brawl'', but decided to continue making ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games once Iwata convinced him to.

* Video game review site [=GameSpot=] is a major offender, as [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks "too much like the original"]] is one of their most common complaints. [[EightPointEight Particularly bad]] was giving ''{{Metroid}} Prime'' a 9.7, and then giving ''[[MetroidPrime Prime]] 3'' an ''8.5''.

* While ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' has seen a large number of entries in the franchise, with all three series having periods where there was one movie per year and catching {{Sequelitis}} as an inevitable result, ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' managed to get flak for it despite being released a full 10 years after ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars''.

** They even do it with Expansions. Check ''HeroesOfMightAndMagic V'' and watch the score decline despite the new features and overall increase in quality.

* The ''CallOfDuty'' franchise has been getting this reaction from both fans and non fans since the one year development cycle began with ''World At War''. Considering the franchise is now popularly considered the exemplar of videogame {{Sequelitis}}, this fear was probably justified. ** The backlash was significant when details of ''Call of Duty 2013'' (now known as ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts'') were leaked ''days'' after ''Black Ops II'' was released.

** It's worth noting that Yahtzee was being very hypocritical here: four of Yahtzee's works have ended up being part of a series (''Rob Blanc'', ''Arthur Yahtzee'', the ''Chzo Mythos'' and ''1213''), and while only five of his Top Games of the Year (out of 22) were standalone games (''Dishonored'', ''Bastion'', ''Limbo'', ''Red Dead Redemption'', and ''Papers, Please'', with ''Amnesia: The Dark Descent'' being a standalone at the time of release and ''The Walking Dead'' being episodic, now with a sequel), none of them were games of the year, and six standalone games have received Bottom (''Dead Island'', ''Mindjack'', ''NeverDead'', ''AMY'', ''Beyond: Two Souls'', and ''Ride to Hell: Retribution'', the last of which received a Lifetime Award for Total Abhorrence). To clarify, he hates sequels made just to make money (''Bioshock 2'') or that do not evolve the concept at all (''Super Mario Galaxy 2''), but likes sequels that go in a new direction (''Silent Hill 2'') or keeps the good elements and removes the bad elements (''Silent Hill: Shattered Memories'', ''Far Cry 3'').
