*** 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.

I wouldn't *quite* say Supernatural fits this to a tee (S5 is more well-liked than S6, for one thing). But the example has some valid points, and so I edited it
* ''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.

Also averted by Season 6 marks a rare aversion of OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight as after a controversial beginning wound up having 6; although it introduces some fresh new ideas and has several fan-favorite episodes produced episodes, it's also seen to suffer from the [[PostScriptSeason main story having already been wrapped up at that point]], with the show spinning its wheels in some places trying to find a new direction. The trope comes back to back into play with some major [[HolyShitQuotient HSQ]] thrown in by the end.

Season 8 attempted to fix 7's faults, undo the damage, and after a rough start managed to introduce a well received well-received plotline of the brothers trying to close Hell, but the gates of Hell. But then Season 9 came in and introduced yet ''another'' RandomEventsPlot that fell back into the same issues as before of the show struggling to find a cohesive tale to tell, which wound up turning as many people back off, with Sam and Dean's constant fighting doing little to help as it's started it began to come off more as {{Wangst}} to many longtime viewers. Although 10 at least cut down on their bickering and let them get along again, it's also an aversion as it still suffers from the aimlessness that plagued 9.

Sophonore Slump just means that the first and third are better than the second, not necessarily that the third is better than the first
See also: SophomoreSlump, for a shorter series where the first is good, the second is trash, but the third is even better than the first.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' seems to be following this so far. 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 ([[BaseBreaker especially the finale]]). Then season 4 was mostly well-received ([[HolyShitQuotient especially the finale]]).

* Early ''FinalFantasy'' titles followed a pattern where odd numbered games were more gameplay focused than the even ones, which were more story driven. ''FinalFantasyVII'' broke this pattern, and all games afterwards tended to be very story heaven.

Added a new example
to:
* 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 a BaseBreaker 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.
