** After a 3-1 loss to the Cubs in the 2016 National League Division Series, the Giants no longer benefit from this effect.

** In a sub-example that's also a positive case for the franchise, and an inversion of the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' example below, the films released during anniversaries have ended up getting good reception. These have included ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' (20th), ''Film/StarTrekViTheUndiscoveredCountry'' (25th), ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' (30th), and now ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' (50th).

* When it comes to ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', fans often tend to like the odd-numbered seasons over the even-numbered seasons. ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' and ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' are near universally liked among fans, and ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' has gained some praise but not as much as Adventure and Tamers, while ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' is divisive with fans of the first Adventure series (especially with some of the final episodes), and ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' tends to gain a lot of flack for changing the formula of the previous series. ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'' has a number of fans even for an even-numbered season, with the exception of it's final arc, the near universally hated "Young Hunters" arc. Only time will tell if ''Digimon Adventure Tri'' is any good or not.

not, though reviews of the first two installments in ''Tri'' have been mostly positive.



** ''Hotel'', before it even premiered, became "the season without Jessica Lange." Notably it was the first season with lower premiere ratings than it's predecessor.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' followed this for a while. While season 1 is by no means considered ''bad'', it suffered from EarlyInstallmentWeirdness and a much more restrictive [[AnAesop Aesop]] format. Season 2 is generally considered to be where the show [[GrowingTheBeard grew the beard]] (although it had far more controversial episodes than season 1 did), but was followed by season 3, which is the most controversial and poorly received so far (especially the finale). Then season 4 was mostly well-received ([[HolyShitQuotient especially the finale]]). Season 5 broke this trend by being generally well-received.

So far Season 6 has lead to a bit of a BrokenBase though, meaning it could be that the curse has either been fully lifted or merely inverted, depending on who you ask.

*** The film following Into Darkness, Star Trek Beyond, also critically and commercially successful, was better received by fans then the previous two films, even further highlighting the likelihood of the theory that the curse had simply inverted.

* This has wound up being the case for the Creator/DanielCraig-era Franchise/JamesBond films. The [[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 odd]] [[Film/{{Skyfall}} numbered]] films have wound up receiving critical praise while the [[Film/QuantumOfSolace even]] [[Film/{{Spectre}} numbered]] films have received mixed reception.

*** It's still too early to say for sure, but Windows 10 got positive reviews upon release, making it look like the curse has been broken. However, [[BigBrotherIsWatching concerns over privacy]] and Microsoft's [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper rather pushy efforts]] to get Windows 7 and 8 users to upgrade may lead to it being played straight again.
