** Of the male actors, only David Schwimmer had any success for more than ten years following the series finale ([[WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}} and that for voicing a talking giraffe]]), Matthew Perry had a string of failed shows (''Series/Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip'', ''Series/MrSunshine'' and ''Series/GoOn''), and Matt [=LeBlanc=] retired from acting after the spin-off ''Joey'' (mainly to concentrate on his daughter).

* The first ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles'' is considered a classic Wii game that successfully melded JRPG mechanics with the WideOpenSandbox worlds more emblematic of Western [=RPG=]s and was also a major SleeperHit CultClassic for a console that didn't see very many [=RPG=]s overall. While ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' and ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'' are also well-regarded sequels, they've tended to receive much more criticism than the first game.

** ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel'' seems to be facing this at the moment - ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' was able to WinBackTheCrowd after the panned ''Samurai'' and ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'', leaving ''Ninja Steel'' with some big shoes to follow, on top of ''Ninja Steel'' being the first ninja-themed season since ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm''. Unlike ''Samurai'' however, it's able to avert this in regards to [[Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger its source material]], due to the fact that ''Ninninger'' is seen as one of the worst Sentai shows in recent memory.

** The Season Five finale "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E25TheCutieRemarkPart1 The Cutie Re-Mark]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E26TheCutieRemarkPart2 Parts 1 and 2]]", while by no means horrible, is this towards the Season Four finale "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E25TwilightsKingdomPart1 Twilight's Kingdom]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E26TwilightsKingdomPart2 Parts 1 and 2]]" due to the fact that the Season Four finale had so much high-octane action, characters, twists, adventure, and stakes that kept building up over Season 4 and before it. "The Cutie Re-Mark" seems much more subdued and anti-climactic in comparison as it lacks most if not all of these traits, with the Mane Five and other important characters being demoted to [[DemotedToExtra background characters]] and Twilight Sparkle being [[SpotlightStealingSquad thrust into the spotlight once again]] being a particular sore spot among viewers. Other aspects like Starlight Glimmer, her backstory, and [[SixthRanger the resolution]] only made things tougher for it.\\\

*** ''Go-Busters'' wasn't the only post ''Gokaiger'' show to be hit with this - ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger''[[note]]on top of ''Gokaiger'', ''Kyoryuger'' faced a similar dilemma to ''Go-Busters'', since prior to working on this series, the head writer, Riku Sanjou, had previously written the much beloved ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'', meaning that many fans came into ''Kyoryuger'' with higher expectations on top of the ones set by ''Gokaiger''[[/note]], ''Series/ResshaSentaiToqger'', and ''Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger'' also got hit by this, much like the aforementioned post-''Jetman'' shows. Fortunately, ''Series/DobutsuSentaiZyuohger'' seems to have been able to avert this.

** ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' isn't without its faults, but the series would have likely been better received had it not been adapted from ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' (a '''very''' well-received ''Sentai'')[[note]]not helping things is that unlike most other PR shows, many Power Rangers fans actually watched ''Shinkenger'', due to Disney airing a recut of the original series instead of adapting ''Shinkenger''[[/note]] and following ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' (considered one of--if not '''the'''--best season that ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' has ever done). Similar things could be said about ''[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]'' coming behind ''[[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce Time Force]]'' and ''[[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Turbo]]'' never stood a chance after ''[[Series/PowerRangersZeo Zeo]]''.

* SaintsRowTheThird had this from fans coming from SaintsRow2. On it's own, SaintsRowTheThird did a lot right and in some aspects much better than Saint's Row 2 like weapon upgrades needed to be earned, shortening the amount of times activities needed to be done, reducing their overall frustration, tightening controls, and overall sillier aspects. However, for every great thing the third game introduced, it lost something in the process that made the second game memorable. Your story is much more streamlined and arguably focused in SR3, but the syndicate as a whole feels less memorable than the gangs from the first two games and the whole menace of them feels off when the leader [[spoiler: is offed in act 1, replaced with a LargeHam luchador]]. The town is much more easier to maneuver around in at the cost of Steelport being absolutely boring compared to Stillwater. The humor balanced with more of the serious aspects of the second gave the humor more impact and needed relief compared to the third which could pass as an AdultSwim cartoon, etc. It's not like the third game is atrocious by any means; but it's one where despite numerous improvements, one would still like the second game better.

* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline'' is so beloved that private servers for the game are still operating across nearly every platform it was released on. ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarUniverse'' attempted to improve upon the original game, but in spite of the addition of a dedicated single-player campaign and expanded character creation systems and classes, the game received mix reviews and many considered it inferior to ''Online'' (although it would later find success with a series of games on the PSP). ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarZero'' played more similarly to ''Online'' and was considered a step up from ''Universe'', but wasn't as successful from a sales standpoint. Thankfully, ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'' proved to be a worthy successor, combining the best elements of the original ''Online'', ''Universe'', and ''Zero'' and having a large and dedicated player base in Japan [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff and beyond]].

* Director Kazuki Akane started strong with ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'', which became wildly popular (even broadcast on FoxKids in the United States), and remains to this day one of the most iconic anime from the 1990s. His next project was ''Anime/{{Geneshaft}}'', which was seen by few and hated by most who did. His next creation was ''Anime/HeatGuyJ''; most who know of it know only about how much Creator/{{Geneon}} paid for it (as much as Creator/{{FUNimation}} paid for ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'') and how poorly it sold. Next came ''Anime/{{Noein}}'', which fared better in popularity and reception, but only modestly. His latest work was ''Anime/BirdyTheMighty: Decode'', which sold very poorly in Japan.
