* Parodied in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', with Larry, who got an awkward PromotionToOpeningTitles, and generated a {{Retool}} into a ''Film/TheThreeStooges'' knock-off. And plenty of MyFriendsAndZoidberg moments. In a LampshadeHanging, he left specifically ''because'' Brain pointed out that he didn't gel. Then, at the very end, just as it looked like that Pinky and the Brain will carry on as a duo again, a scientist placed another mouse into their cage, and the mouse introduces himself as [[TheMarxBrothers Zeppo]]. The ending reprise of the theme song was then reworked to have Zeppo's name in it in the same manner as Larry. He's gone before the next episode, though.

* There were four series in the leadup to ''ComicBook/{{Annihilation}}: Conquest:'' the ''Nova'' ongoing, and the ''Quasar'', ''Star-Lord'', and ''Wraith'' miniseries. Nova was a well-established character, while Quasar and Star-Lord were {{Ascended Extra}}s in the original, but Wraith was a new character. Touted as a new and unique addition to the Cosmic mythos, Wraith instead came off as a mix of Drizzt Do'Urden and Jackie Estacado, with the little depth of both replaced with a double-barrel blast of CommonMarySueTraits. His miniseries mostly focused around how edgy he was while he got to save the much more likeable Ronan and Kl'rt from TheVirus. Fans, of course, hated this guy, and when ''Conquest'' itself finally rolled around, Wraith was barely in it at all. Upon the series ending, Quasar and Star-Lord got [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy their own series,]] while Wraith [[PutOnABus left to try to cure the Phalanx]] and hasn't appeared since.

* Poochie from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', who is an in-universe example. [[ExecutiveMeddling Meddling executives]] create the TotallyRadical character (voiced by Homer) in a clumsy attempt to pander to kids. In his first episode of ''TheItchyAndScratchyShow'', Poochie sidetracks the plot to introduce himself by rapping about all of the reasons kids should just love him. The audience overwhelmingly hates Poochie and the focus being put on him. In the very next episode, the president crudely alters the cartoon himself to [[BusCrash kill Poochie "on the way back to his home planet."]] Krusty then promises the audience that [[DeaderThanDead he will never be brought back]], AndThereWasMuchRejoicing. The same episode got all meta and dropped a cool guy named Roy into the Simpson family's house, with no explanation. At the end, he moved into [[ThreesCompany an apartment with two sexy ladies]].

* ''[[Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit Law & Order SVU]]'' added Kim Greylek in Season 10 to replace the disbarred Casey Novak. Her cold demeanor didn't win over fans so after 15 episodes she was quickly booted and replaced with the returning Alex Cabot.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/NewYorkUndercover'' had the addition of Detective Tommy [=McNamara=] added to the cast, in the [[ExecutiveMeddling executives' beliefs]] that the show needed a WhiteMaleLead to bring in a wider demographic. The problem with this was one of the show's strongest and most unique aspects is that it starred two detectives ''of color'' working together and had a multicultural, ensemble cast that gave characterization and time to everyone. Plus, the brass really hoped that the new character would be a SpotlightStealingSquad. While he was, it was for [[TheScrappy the wrong reasons]]; neither the crew nor the fans cared about him and by the end of the season, he was [[spoiler: [[DroppedABridgeOnHim brutally killed off.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* Clarice from ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' is introduced as a replacement protagonist for Clare after the mid-series TimeSkip and the manga follows her for a couple volumes. Then the writer probably realized that it's Clare and the Seven Ghosts' story the readers wanted to see, and Clarice was shifted to the background again, with her and Miata's arc resolution wedged into the final battle sequences between the ''main'' main characters and the overarching villains.

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'': After Silver's debut in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' and prominent role in ''Sonic Rivals 2'', he's been demoted to extremely minor roles. His reputation with fans has improved a bit, mainly due to his rule in the Archie ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comics, even getting a leading role in an arc for the Sonic Universe spin-offs. Meanwhile, fans of his game appearances are currently stuck wondering when SonicTeam will ever address the massive ContinuitySnarl between the Sonic Rivals titles and Sonic Rush titles and Sonic 06's real place in the continuity that his involvement ties into.

** Due to his [[UnexpectedGameplayChange fishing levels]] in his debut game and his slowgoing, dopey personality, Big the Cat has mostly been relegated to goofy cameos. Harmless stuff, right? Continued aggression towards the character despite not having any relevant role in a main series title in years led to his ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' cameos being pointlessly DummiedOut of the GCN re-release (most of them return in the XBLA/PSN/Steam re-release), a cameo in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' being cut and SonicTeam heads ''apologizing for bringing him in'' during a Q&A at the Summer of Sonic fan convention. Ouch.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'': Lieutenant Keffer, the Starfury pilot, was injected into the show in the second season by ExecutiveMeddling to have a "hotshot ''Film/TopGun''-style pilot." At the showrunner's first opportunity, he killed off the character, though he did feel bad for the actor, who was fitting in fine. Part of the problem was that he didn't really add anything to the ensemble, given that no fewer than three of the central characters at that point[[note:Chief Garibaldi, Commander Ivanova, and Captain Sheridan, and ''not'' counting Commander Sinclair, [[PutOnABus who left at the end of the previous season]]]] were already Starfury pilots, and his character arc of trying to learn more about [[spoiler: The Shadows]] already mimicked a similar arc of Sheridan's ''and'' G'Kar's.
