* Atticus Finch, an iconic hero in ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' becomes a senile old racist in its sequel, ''Literature/GoSetAWatchman'' (written first but published and set afterwards). This is shocking both in and out of universe, with Atticus's daughter expressing her distaste, and many critics have also voiced displeasure at the dismantling of one of the most inspiring heroes in American history.

* In ''MassEffect'', while Donnel Udina is never a ''[[CorruptPolitician likable]]'' character, he is at least consistently presented as an advocate for humanity, and receives several PetTheDog moments in ''MassEffect3'' after the invasion of Earth, which makes it all the more surprising when [[spoiler: he turns out to be TheMole for Ceberus and helps with the attempted coup on the Citadel]], although it's implied he did so out of desperation after hitting the DespairEventHorizon following the invasion.
