** The spinoff [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]] also follows this, with the second movie being much better received than the first or third.

* The ''Film/MadMax'' series, despite being one of the more consistent film franchises has this kind of pattern: While ''[[Film/MadMax2TheRoadWarrior The Road Warrior]]'' and ''[[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad Fury Road]]'' are widely considered to be classics, the odd-numbered entries tend to be [[BaseBreaker more divisive]], for different reasons: ''Film/MadMax'' because [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness it is an entirely different genre altogether]], and ''[[Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome Beyond Thunderdome]]'' for its LighterAndSofter tone and its relative lack of car chases. Sure enough, the fourth film in the series ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' was very well-received indeed.

* In the ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' series, the odd numbered games are better received than the even numbered ones. The original is a well liked Hack and slash. The second game is widely seen as [[SophomoreSlump the worst]] to the point that even Capcom rarely acknowledges the existence of the game. The third game is a SurprisinglyImprovedSequel and possibly the best in the series. The fourth game is good but it's considered as a step down from the predecessor because of [[ReplacementScrappy Nero replacing Dante]] and its annoying backtracking. [[VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry The reboot]] broke the trend being by far the most contentious installment.

** There is also a school of thought which holds that this 'rule' never really existed, since many consider StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpockpretty good if not great.

* Though not applicable to his entire output, the operas of Music/GioachinoRossini between ''L'italiana in Algeri'' (his eleventh) and ''Otello'' (nineteenth) fall into this territory, with the odd numbered operas (''L'italiana'', ''Il turco in Italia'' [13], ''Elisabetta, regina d'Inghilterra'' [15], ''Theatre/TheBarberOfSeville'' [17] and ''Otello'') being better respected than the evens (''Aureliano in Palmira'' [12], ''Sigismondo'' [14], ''Torvaldo e Dorliska'' [16] and ''La gazzetta'' [18]).

*** Since the release of the Investigation 2 FanTranslation,it seems to have completely inverted both cases,since fans trend to think that the game is much better than the first AceAttorneyInvestigations,and the third case is actually considered the best by some fans.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has been following the trope to a tee. Although the show has had its bases regularly broken as early as the ''third'' season, it seems to be agreed upon most fans that the even seasons are better. Season 1 is regarded as a decent start but suffers from a large amount of MonsterOfTheWeek episodes as the show was still finding its footing, while season 2 is noted as the show's real moment of GrowingTheBeard. Season 3 wound up being hit by production troubles thanks to the '07 Writers Strike and also introduced two new characters [[SpotlightStealingSquad that took time away from Sam and Dean]] and were Base Breakers ''at best''. Season 4 wound up introducing [[BreakoutCharacter fan favorite Castiel]] and heavily increasing the mythology marking a notable increase in the show's ratings, while Season 5 is a downplayed case as it is overall liked, but fans do have some problems with it, particularly the finale, which has come off as an AntiClimax to some. Season 6 marks a rare aversion of OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight as after a controversial beginning wound up having several fan-favorite episodes produced back to back with some major [[HolyShitQuotient HSQ]] thrown in by the end. Season 7 then [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot immediately threw that potential out the window]] in favor of a heavily disliked RandomEventsPlot. Season 8 attempted to fix 7's faults, and after a rough start managed to introduce a well received plotline of the brothers trying to close Hell, but 9 came in and introduced yet ''another'' RandomEventsPlot that wound up turning as many people back off, with Sam and Dean's constant fighting doing little to help as it's started to come off more as {{Wangst}} to many longtime viewers. Time will tell if season 10 follows this standards and is seen as an improvement.
