* [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5835409 transgender dysphoria blues]] was one of the first ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' Humanized fics to portray Pearl as [[{{Transsexual}} Trans]]. It's more of a vent fic for the author to deal with Transphobia than any of it's successors. Other Steven Universe characters aren't even mentioned, though Garnet makes an appearance in the second of the fics sequels.

* [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5835409 transgender dysphoria blues]] was one of the first ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' Humanized fics to portray Pearl as a [[{{Transsexual}} Trans]]. Trans Woman]]. It's more of also a vent fic for the author to deal with Transphobia than any Trans-phobia, with the plot basically being Pearl reflecting on her situation and the way other people treat her. The sequel, [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/6951835 trivial excuses]], takes this even further, with Pearl ''self-harming'' herself because of it's successors. the Trans-phobia she recieved in the first fic. Other Steven Universe characters aren't even mentioned, though mentioned (though Garnet makes an appearance in the second prequel, [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/9852635 true trans soul rebel.]]), while other fics usually feature at least some members of the fics sequels.cast.

* Theatre/{{Macbeth}}: LadyMacbeth defined the trope for women who drive their less ambitious husbands to villainy, but the TropeNamer is quickly driven mad by her guilt, and the pressure of intrigue.

* Classic Disney movies are associated with PrinceCharming rescuing the PrincessClassic from distress. Yet the first two in ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' and ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' don't do much in the way of rescuing, aside from whisking the princess away to a happy ending. The first Disney prince to actually resemble the character archetype was the third in the Canon - Prince Philip from ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' (and even he would have failed miserably if he had not had help from supernatural beings).

* ''{{Theatre/Lysistrata}}'' created and named the LysistrataGambit. The play was however written as a farce; the point was to ridicule the idea of women in politics. A modern audience might however read the feminist interpretation as SeriousBusiness. Also while many depictions of this portray it as easy for the women, due to the idea AllMenArePerverts and AllWomenArePrudes, the women in Lysistrata find it just as difficult as the men and when Lysistrata first suggests the idea are horrified.
** The play also shows the sex strike on its own isn't enough to stop the war, the women also seize the treasury to prevent the war from progressing, the idea being that the war is being prolonged by corrupt politicians so they have opportunities to enrich themselves. The sex strike helps but there are other factors.

It can also go the other way around: the original is bland and unappealing (even ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' was considered such when it first came out), and the later authors are the ones that constructed the mythos and the popular cliches. Alternatively, the deconstructed or {{parod|y}}ic form of the trope, rather than the original, became more popular and accepted over the long run.

* ''FanFic/ATrekkiesTale'' for its original MarySue character, the eponymous Mary Sue. If anything, she lacked CommonMarySueTraits and was a ParodySue in a SelfInsertFic, despite being the {{Trope Namer|s}}. Makes sense given that this trope is OlderThanTheyThink.
