** ''Film/CurseOfChucky'' managed to successfully bring the series back to horror after the overly silly ''Film/SeedOfChucky''.

** ''VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokai'' was generally considered a competent (though nothing special) fighting game that successfully captured the essence of the series but also was criticized for the blocky graphics, lack of variety in the characters' movesets, and the combos for a lot of special moves not being worth the payoff. ''Budokai 2'' did improve several things (namely the graphics) but it wasn't until ''Budokai 3'' where ''Creator/{{Dimps}}'' truly started to step things up. ''Budokai 3'' was not only a much better ''DBZ'' game than its predecessors but it was quite popular with gamers in general due to vastly improved fighting mechanics, more individualized physical combos for each character, greater variety in special moves (which you actually could do on the fly), gorgeous cel-shaded graphics, a single-player campaign titled Dragon Universe'' that gives the game near-infinite replay value, the inclusion of Beam Struggles and the actual ability to fly into or from the air, and a roster that not only spans throughout the entirety of the main DBZ story but Broly and Cooler moves, and some of GT as well.

* Most of Matt Ward's 5th edition codexes are rather ''divisive'' among Warhammer40000 fans. The Space Marines codex has some divisive fluff. The Blood Angels Codex has several GameBreaker elements, while the Grey Knights codex has ''both''. The reaction to the news that Ward would be writing the 5th Edition Necrons codex was... less than stellar. But when the codex was released, it turned out that Necrons Codex was mechanically well balanced, and while it did introduce several massive retcons to the existing Necrons fluff, most fans agree that those changes were long overdue and rescued Necrons from being a GenericDoomsdayVillain.

* ''[[Literature/InheritanceCycle Eragon]]'' is ''ANewHope'' [[RecycledINSPACE not in space]]. ''Eldest'' and ''Brisingr'' have started getting a little bit more original, though are still rather downplayed examples.

* For all the praise ''VideoGame/NieR'' gets for its story, cast, and interesting gameplay ideas, most people agree the actual gameplay is serviceable at best and outright obnoxious at worst. ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'' improved on almost all regards in the gameplay department thanks to the involvement of Creator/PlatinumGames and maintains the fantastic narrative and cast that the first game was known for, making it Creator/TaroYoko's most critically acclaimed work to date by a wide margin.

* ''VideoGame/Stuntman'' was a [=PS2=] title that featured realistic handling physics and an interesting twist on the driving genre, but ultimately received meager popularity due to its' punishing difficulty. ''Stuntman: Ignition'', released as a console-generation-bridging title (PS2, PS3 and 360) and featured a completely overhauled game system that kept the games difficulty nearly-intact, but made it ''much'' more fair for the player. Didn't hurt that it was also a much better looking game.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7Biohazard'' marked the return of the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series' horror roots, right after ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' went too far with the over-the-top action.

** ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', while still successful, soured many fans by ripping off the abovementioned ''Wrath of Khan'' and then lying about it. Then came ''StarTrekBeyond'' which felt more like Star Trek than any of the reboot films thus far.

** Also continued in the ''Next Generation'' films. ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'' was in general badly received by fans and critics. Its sequel, ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' is generally viewed a vast improvement, being widely considered by far best Next Generation film and by some as one of the best Star Trek films.
