* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony.'' Discord warps the personalities of Twilight's five friends--but unlike canon, he does this by inverting their main vices rather than their virtues. In spite of their being allegedly improved, Twilight notes that "You guys have turned into even bigger jerks than you usually are!" and their attempts to help provoke a "StopHelpingMe" response. Even the Elements Of Harmony agree with Twilight, as the magic friendship laser doesn't work until Twilight reverts her friends back to normal.

** Reese becomes gentle and kind, but without Reese as the "alpha-jerk" and his "even-handed bullying," the school descends into total anarachy. Seeing Stevie (whom he declared off-limits) getting bullied prompts Reese to go back to his old ways - first beating up everyone who actually deserves it.

** Two very egregious examples are Wrestling/DoinkTheClown and [[Wrestling/RonKillings R-Truth]]. They are near universally beloved as heels and near universally despised as faces. How ironic.
* This is what appears to be the general reaction after ForeignWrestlingHeel Drew [=McIntyre=] joined 3MB, typically called [[EmbarrassingNickname The]] {{Jobber}} [[TheScrappy Squad]]. People seemed to quickly miss the old Badass charismatic, arrogant, and [[ItsAllAboutMe cocky Drew]] that was the '[[TheChosenOne Future of WWE]]' (Ironically smarks couldn't stand him when he actually ''was'' the chosen one. But now, sadly, it appears he is, at best, midcarder status, and at times, [[OutOfCharacterMoment completely unlike how he used to be.]] He was eventually released in 2014.

** Tom loves fancy status-symbol products and always focuses on empty flash over substance, so naturally, his tendency towards overspending leads him to run his first company into the ground. He decides to be more serious with his next venture, but takes it way too far, forcing his friends to point out that both him and his new clothing store are no fun at all.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "Invasion of the Bunny-Snatchers", Bugs is distressed to find his nemeses Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, and Daffy Duck have been replaced by cheerful, friendly, badly-drawn doppelgangers. And this is ''before'' his own badly-animated look-alike climbs out of the "strange-looking carrot" Daffy gave him and attacks him with an axe.

* ''NightCourt'' performed an extended version of this trope during most of its 8th season and the early part of its 9th season with a subplot where CasanovaWannabe Dan Fielding became a virtuous do-gooder after being placed in charge of a charitable organization. Even after he left the charity job behind, Dan still remained nice, thoughtful and respectful to women... until he was slapped by a woman who had hoped to enjoy the pleasures of the old Dan. The slap awakened the long-repressed lecherous urges of the Old Dan who proceeded to give the woman what she wanted... and then some.\\

* ''[[TylerPerry Meet the Browns]]'': When Mr. Brown got hit on the head his whole personality changed: suits and sweaters instead of loud 70's clothing, courteous and kind, instead of whiny and rude, and (for some reason) speaking in a [[BritishAccents British accent]]. At first family and friends enjoyed the new Mr. Brown, but when he began to be [[BrutalHonesty brutally honest]] about their actions and character, they decided that the original Mr. Brown wasn't that bad after all.

* In an episode of ''ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'', King Julian is led to believe that the eclipse is caused by him being a jerk to everyone so he decides to be nice but he becomes very annoying trying to help everyone.

* In ''TheWeekenders'' episode "Sense and Sensitivity", Lor's friends finally get fed up with her jerkish behavior. She spends the rest of the episode going out of her way to be kind and thoughtful, which drives her friends crazy and makes them wish for the old Lor back. And the catalyst that starts all this? Lor losing a basketball game by being a ball-hog. They're worried that she might start passing the ball... ''to the other team''.
* In an episode of ''DaveTheBarbarian'', Dave's little sister Fang, known for being the single most violent, fearsome being in all the land despite being pint sized, undergoes a transformation that makes her much more sedate and ladylike. Dave and his older sister Candy appreciate this greatly for a while, but then the kingdom is threatened by giant bugs. Fang, who the bugs are terrified of and would flee from on sight, refuses to go into battle and instead settles to make clothing for the beetles, as she's been putting clothes on every animal she possibly can. Dave and Candy try to make her snap back to her usual self, but fail until Fang sees both her siblings in danger and promptly goes back to her normal homicidal rage monster self to protect them.
