* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' was initially seen as a shallow knock-off of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' with hamfisted attempts at political humor. The show gradually stepped out of the former's shadow, [[GrowingTheBeard grew its beard]] and became more character-driven, with a change in its style of humor to surreal, DenserAndWackier antics (in an example of TropesAreNotBad). Some have argued that the show not only has better writing than ''Family Guy'', but that its also Seth Macfarlane's best.

* Comicbook/{{Christopher Priest|Comics}}'s ''BlackPanther'' run didn't sell well at the time, but today, it's regarded as one of the best Marvel books of the 90's. Many fans even argue that Priest has earned MyRealDaddy status over the character at this point, and his depiction is often considered to be the definitive take on Black Panther.

* Caravaggio was obscure to infamous until the 1920s. It did not help that he painted the equivalent of Doujinshi. His normal works were considered so blasphemous that some tried to kill him.

* The Games episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheRenandStimpyShow'' were once one of the most reviled cartoons in the history of animation, and it's low ratings and critical backlash, following John Kricfalusi's firing had lead to the show's demise in 1995. After the failure of Adult Party Cartoon, and further stories about what happened behind the scenes at Spumco (From Billy West, Bob Camp and many other colleagues of Kricfalusi's, and a book documenting the events of the show's history, released in 2013 entitled "Sick Little Monkeys: The Unauthorized Ren and Stimpy Story"), the Games episodes nowadays are seen as either not as good as the first two seasons, but good in their own right, or better than the Spumco episodes that had preceded it (It's very telling that Bob Camp is usually the one out of the two creators of Ren and Stimpy, that is asked to attend conventions on a frequent basis). Either way, most people agree that the Games episodes fare better than Adult Party Cartoon did.

Seems silly to have spoilers for real life events.
* Front-wheel-drive cars. Prior to 1960s, these configurations are not a popular choice for car manufacturing due to its serious traction issues, with a very few carmakers managed to build a number. Beginning in the late 60s, it became popular due to it being more compact than most RWD configurations and also didn't require a drivetrain. It also "moved" the trunk/boot to the back of the vehicle, giving more interior configuration possibilities. Because of that, front transverse engine configuration became popular not only in subcompacts, but also became the "default" engine layout for practically any car under 5 meters long. It now provides decent grip and most few performance hot hatches and city cars come with that for same reasons. However, it was rarely used in sports cars, still due to traction issues. Yet, Nissan managed to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_GT-R_LM_Nismo build the most extreme FWD car]], [[spoiler:but it [[AwesomeButImpractical failed to compete]] [[TheAllegedCar in racing events]] and thus [[DevelopmentHell the project was abandoned altogether]]]].

* Wrestling/JohnCena. Yeah, ''[[TheScrappy that]]'' [[BaseBreaker John]] [[CreatorsPet Cena]]. Cena 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. [[{{Understatement}} It didn't fit him]]. [[ReplacementScrappy At all]]. 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 ''eight 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.

** Animalguy001 is also one of those people. He went pretty much unnoticed by the countdown community, until he started releasing his first vocal countdowns.
