* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' became one. The game has always been loved by the fans, but all admitted that ''Visualnovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' was an EvenBetterSequel. However, in later years, with the [[Anime/DanganRonpa3 latest two]] [[VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3 installments]] of the franchise becoming '''massively''' polarizing (both have their own BrokenBase page) and several events of the sequel being rendered pointless or outright {{Retcon}}ned by ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' while various of the survivors of the original game TookALevelInBadass, several fans have taken a new appreciation for the original game.

game. Among other things, the fact that the first game didn't had the StrictlyFormula of the latter games and the best villain, specially compared to the later ones, all of whom were considered ReplacementScrappy for Junko, made the game be treasured even more when these two matter became issues for the fans by ''VisualNovel/NewDanganronpaV3''.[[/folder]]

* ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' followed similar game mechanics to the previous Ace Attorney games (cross examinations in the courtroom, investigations in various areas, etc.), but it starred Apollo Justice as the main character while Phoenix Wright, the main character from the last three games, was punted off as a hobo that had his license to practice law revoked due to forged evidence. People and critics alike panned the game just because Apollo and the rest of the cast replaced Phoenix Wright and his crew. However, years later, people gave the game another chance and have seen just how deep the background of Apollo and his sidekick Trucy go, and Apollo makes a comeback as a playable character in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies''.

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' had a large {{Hatedom}} back in the day from [[FandomRivalry SatAM fans]], and those who thought it was just bad in general. In the mid-2000s, with the rise of the YoutubePoop and several memes stemming from the show, it is now regarded as a classic due to its silly humor, SoBadItsGood nature, DerangedAnimation, and the crazy antics of Robotnik and his minions Scratch and Grounder. Scratch and Grounder themselves were even the inspiration for henchman robots that Eggman would use in further incarnations or games in the franchise, such as Orbot and Cubot, and [[Anime/SonicX Decoe and Bocoe]].

* The Wrestling/HulkHogan vs. Wrestling/AndreTheGiant match at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania III'' was panned by critics in 1987, but all of that criticism has since been obscured by its historical importance in wrestling history and for its enormous box-office draw.

* It's hard to believe that Wrestling/MrFuji was an ''eleven-time'' winner of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter's "Worst Manager" award given he's today universally regarded as one of the greatest heel managers of all time.

* Wrestling/JohnCena spent ''years'' vilified by the smarks and hardcore fans for his stale, kiddy-pandering "Superman" gimmick. However, when Cena began to transition into a part-timer role and do other things, Wrestling/RomanReigns effectively got booked into his place with the same character. It didn't fit him. Reigns' push as the new face of the company has gone so terribly that many began to look at Cena and ''his'' push to the top more objectively. Cena was called up as part of the famous OVW class of 2002 (Lesnar, Orton, Batista, and Cena), and out of all his class, he's the one who had the least amount of help from the company. Orton and Batista joined Wrestling/{{Evolution}} with Wrestling/TripleH and Wrestling/RicFlair, while Lesnar got Wrestling/PaulHeyman and was hotshotted to the main event in his first year. Cena was left on his own, floundered, and if it hadn't been for Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon hearing him rap, might have gotten fired. Then he developed the "Doctor of Thuganomics" gimmick and spent time as a midcard heel, who became more and more popular to the point they had no choice but to turn him face and push him to the moon, especially after Lesnar left and Orton's initial face push didn't pan out well. Case in point, Cena got over ''organically'' -- it was his booking after he won his first world title that ruined him for many fans, and even then it was a testament to his talent as a performer that he managed to make such a terrible gimmick bearable and watchable for ''8 years''. When Reigns, with his manufactured push (he was the well-protected "hot tag" guy in Wrestling/TheShield, to build up his popularity) and much more inferior mic skills, got booked in his place as the chosen new face of the company, the fans shunned him to the point that they began to pine for ''Cena'', and realized that Cena was a much more talented performer than they ever gave him credit for.

** When Cena lost the WWE Championship to Brock Lesnar at Summerslam 2014, many hoped he would then go away for good because they didn't want to see him win the world title for a 16th time, tying Ric Flair's record. All of the aforementioned with Reigns happened after that, so when Cena DID win the title again at the 2017 Royal Rumble (in a match vs AJ Styles that many felt stole the show that night), many fans gave him cheers and respect for it.

* ''Pinball/SafeCracker'' was a highly gimmicky machine: It was shorter than usual, with smaller flippers. It had a timer-based system in which once time ran out, draining the ball instantly ended your game. But most importantly, it had a token system in which you could either collect them (with 25 of them in all) or put them back into the machine to play a bonus mode called "Assault on the Vault." All of this came together for a disastrous release, with the unconventional size throwing people off, the timer-based system meaning newcomers would get hosed, and it turned out people preferred to collect tokens, and with Creator/WilliamsElectronics issuing only one run of the tokens due to low sales of the machine itself, the machines quickly ran out of tokens and whatever appeal ''Safe Cracker'' had was lost. Things changed many years later though, when, like with ''The Twilight Zone'', ''Safe Cracker'' machines entered home use. With them set to play for free, there was little loss on games that end quickly, and with these owners dedicating themselves to learning its rules and how to maximize the time bonuses (as well as discovering there were ways to restore time even after it's reached 0), as well as having access to tokens so they could play "Assault on the Vault," the games found themselves a lot more respect. It is still a ravenous and unforgiving quarter-eater though, and because of the tokens system, it is very rare to find a ''Safe Cracker'' for public play.

* ''Pinball/HighRollerCasino'' came out a year after the well-liked ''Pinball/StarWarsEpisodeI'' and fell into obscurity as victim of a ToughActToFollow. Whereas ''Star Wars: Episode I'' used a monitor, was full of voice clips, displayed live-action footage made just for the machine, and a rather complicated set of rules, ''High Roller Casino'' used an old-fashioned dot-matrix display, the rules were seen as overly simplistic, and the miniature slot machine was unimpressive. On top of that, ''High Roller Casino'' was released in 2001, right at the nadir of modern pinball's popularity, so despite its lower price, few people were interested in putting it up for public display and thus few people had even heard of it. ''High Roller Casino'' machines were then used in competitions in 2013, where it gained new popularity now that the machine can stand on its own merits (as well as pinball players learning the machine exists) and that its rules are not so much simplistic as they are uncluttered. Much demand now exists for ''High Roller Casino'' to be included in the compilation video game ''VideoGame/ThePinballArcade'', and it was indeed added in 2014.
