For some people, the very act of adaptation ''is'' decay. A film version of something should be a direct [[ShotForShotRemake word-for-word transcription]], with utmost care that the sets, costumes and people be reproduced in every detail. If a character who wears a homburg in the original now wears a fedora, that will be enough to ruin the character, and therefore ruin the film. It will be all you will hear about from these fans on message boards, with them going on at length to explain how his homburg visually defined his entire personality in a way that a fedora never could.

And don't you ''dare'' suggest that in changing it they made it better. If certain fans take the Chicken Little approach and announce that the sky is falling, it's mainly an expression of their fears that the writing staff [[TheyJustDidntCare don't care much]] about the source material (particularly if [[AudienceAlienatingPremise it's not mainstream-friendly]]).

But sometimes the fans who complain may be right. When producers make drastic changes just for the heck of it, it can get rid of any redeeming qualities the property had. An established franchise making sudden, drastic changes usually heralds the beginning of RunningTheAsylum, a DorkAge, or worse, DeaderThanDisco.

DeaderThanDisco. And most important, if fans liked the franchise for what it was, and then it is totally changed, the new stuff may be good and please the fans, but they are right to complain that what they liked is never coming back.

->'''Fry''': Married? Jenny can't get married.\\
'''Leela''': Why not? It's clever; it's unexpected.\\
'''Fry''': But that's not why people watch TV. Clever things make people feel stupid, and unexpected things make them feel scared.

Sometimes, the complaints are about a sequel or remake to an adaptation, and the original adaptation actually made changes from its source material, and the new adaptation [[TruerToTheText tries to be more faithful]], but people don't know that and complain about changes anyway.
