* Pixel (Daisuke Amaya) will probably never be able to top his best-received game ''VideoGame/CaveStory'''s success and recognition. His next game, the arcadey ''Kero Blaster'', was praised by the press as a well-made and engaging game, but it barely made a blip among the gaming community. It doesn't even have a page on this wiki at the moment.

** Before ''Jetman'', there was a four season long period of extremely well received shows, from ''Series/DengekiSentaiChangeman'' to ''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman''. After ''Liveman'' came ''Series/KousokuSentaiTurboranger'' and ''Series/ChikyuuSentaiFiveman'', which ended up being average at best and aren't well remembered. Then came the aforementioned ''Jetman'', and both seasons in between ''Liveman'' and ''Jetman'' had their fates sealed as essentially seasons that were just there.

* ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' has a villainous example. The BigBad of the first game, [[spoiler:Junko Enoshima]] aka. the Ultimate Despair is widely agreed by fans to be the best villain of the entire franchise, even better than it's incarnations in other installments, such as ''Anime/DanganRonpa3''. Every villain introduced is often considered subpar compared to them, with [[spoiler:Tengan]] of ''[=DR3=]'' and [[spoiler:Shirogane Tsumugi]] of ''VisualNovel/NewDanganronpaV3'' both becoming ReplacementScrappy for them.
** On a very interesting case regarding ''[=NDRV3=]'', [[spoiler:Kaede Akamatsu, the DecoyProtagonist of the game became this. Within her sole playable chapter, she was established as an IdealHero, and the one protagonist capable of giving a new spin to the already tired Danganronpa formula, but when she was killed in chapter one, the real protagonist became a ReplacementScrappy for her.]]

* Actor turned director Richard Attenborough's greatest achievement was ''Film/{{Gandhi}}''. His next film right after ''Gandhi'' was the much maligned film version of ''Theatre/AChorusLine''. His subsequent efforts though better received included {{biopic}} ''Chaplin'' starring Robert Downey Jr. (which got him his first Oscar nomination), ''Shadowlands'' starring Creator/AnthonyHopkins as C.S. Lewis, and ''Grey Owl'' starring Creator/PierceBrosnan never had the same level success. He found better success returning to acting in films like ''Film/JurassicPark'' and the remake of ''Film/MiracleOn34thStreet''.

** In TheNineties, ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'', ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' and ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' were the three films immediately following ''Disney/TheLionKing''. These are also the three most controversial 1990s Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon entries, although ''Herc'' was received much better than ''Hunchback'', and both were received better than the decidedly SoOkayItsAverage ''Pocahontas''. ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' and ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' in turn were received better than ''Herc'' and ''Hunchback''. All five, however, are usually as fondly remembered by children of TheNineties as the earlier canon installments.

** Ironically ''reversed'' in between the releases of ''Disney/HomeOnTheRange'' and ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. ''Range'' was hated so badly by the entire Disney community and audiences alike (despite getting at least mixed to average reviews from critics, according to a 54% on Rotten Tomatoes... no joke!), ''Princess'' could be nothing but spectacular compared to it.

** ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'' then fell into this rut as well. The film's delayed release resulted in it debuting just five months after ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', the film that was heralded as Pixar's return to form and one of the greatest family films of the decade, if not of all time. As a result, the movie was generally well-received, more so than Pixar's infamous ''Cars 2'' beforehand, but not nearly as much as its predecessor and only around the same lines as ''Brave'' and ''Monsters University''. More concerning, it's also the first Pixar film to actually be a domestic BoxOfficeBomb after 20 years of the studio's filmography (Pixar's rivals at Disney Animation and Creator/DreamWorksAnimation had bombs handed to then rather early in their existence, with ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/SinbadLegendOfTheSevenSeas'', respectively.)

* The story of ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' was so, well, ''huge'', that its successor line ''Toys/HeroFactory'' gets a considerable amount of hate for its bare-bones, simple-to-follow plot and minimalistic characterization. Complainers tend to overlook the fact that even so, HF's story is still a tad more complex than that of an average, non-licensed {{LEGO}} line, and its characters are among the most developed of any original-LEGO characters (if still far from ''Bionicle'''s). LEGO themselves consider HF a wholly separate entity -- a line that occupies the same niche as ''Bionicle'', but it's not a follow-up. Further, they deliberately set out to ''avoid'' creating another complicated universe such as that of ''Bionicle'', partly because of this trope, but mostly because a simpler story is easier to promote to younger kids, which the PeripheryDemographic has a hard time realizing.
** This came back to bite ''BIONICLE'' itself when a revival came. ''Toys/BIONICLE2015'' was marketed towards fans of the old line in particular to help strengthen the brand. But the old fans felt the story was watered down and too kiddie, unlike the original which had actual planning put into it. The line was cancelled even before LEGO's three year house minimum due to historically poor sales.

** A bigger victim is Michael Richards (Kramer), who basically retired from acting after ''The Michael Richards Show'' failed to catch on in 2000 because the main character was turned into a cheap Kramer clone thanks to ExecutiveMeddling and Richards almost completely destroyed his reputation in 2006 when he hurled racial slurs at a heckler during his stand-up act. In the 12 years since ''The Michael Richards Show'' Richards has only returned to acting for a voice part in the Jerry Seinfeld written ''BeeMovie'' and an appearance as himself on co-creator Creator/LarryDavid's ''Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm''.

* Creator/AkiraToriyama has created quite a few short manga since ''Manga/DragonBall'', but they've barely registered on most people's radars. It might be because they're almost all single-volume series, though. He's never even attempted a long series since ''Dragon Ball'' ended, partially for fear of this trope. He does avert this trope in the video game realm, where he remains quite popular as the head artist for the cult classic games ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', ''VideoGame/BlueDragon'', and the ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' series. His earlier series, ''Manga/DrSlump'', was a huge success in its native Japan, and was considered the tough act there Also Dragon Ball Super Is a tough act to fallow.
