* Creator/WilliamBlake's "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton_(Blake) Newton]]", due to its "heroic" style, is widely misinterpreted as an approving depiction of UsefulNotes/IsaacNewton (eg in the three-dimensional sculpture by Eduardo Paolozzi inspired by it). In fact, the anti-materialist and mystically Christian Blake intended the work as a caricature mocking Newton for paying attention to insignificant things on Earth when he should have been thinking about his immortal soul. This is made clear by the engraving's original subtitle, ''Personification of Man Limited by Reason''.

* Rumor has it that ''Asiannimation/SquirrelAndHedgehog'' is meant to bash and demonize the United States in favor of North Korea, but you'd never guess that. The Americans, portrayed by badass wolves armed with FrickinLaserBeams and GlowingEyesOfDoom, are five different kinds of awesome compared to the North Koreans who are portrayed by wimpy little rodents. The BigBad Lt.Col Fox Vixen is also popular enough, particularly with the FurryFandom, to have spawned an entire slew of fan art from Americans praising her. The explanation given is due to ValuesDissonance; Americans love seeing themselves portrayed as fearsome, stoic and mighty wolves, whilst North Koreans center a lot of their cultural identity around being innocent, meek and peace-loving souls tormented by big, powerful bullies, as a result of Kim il-Jong's propaganda.

* Some people need it explained to them that ''FanFic/FriendshipIsOptimal'' is supposed to be psychological horror, '''not''' WishFulfillment.

* Some people need it explained to them that ''FanFic/FriendshipIsOptimal'' is supposed to be psychological horror, PsychologicalHorror, '''not''' WishFulfillment.
* There is a huge percentage of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' fanfiction that portrays Ranma as eventually coming to enjoy his GenderBender status, or even to outright prefer his female form to his male one. Many of these go so far as to show "her" acting more conventionally feminine by preference, sometimes even to the extent of falling in love with men and bearing children. This seems to stem from a combination of FanficWritersAreGirls and transgirls latching onto Ranma as a wish-fulfillment character, completely ignoring that, in canon, Ranma absolutely ''hates'' his GenderBender status, wants nothing more than to be all male again, and [[LossOfIdentity the idea of physically and/or mentally changing permanently into a girl absolutely terrifies him]]. He has a particularly hatred of guys trying to flirt with him, being vehemently straight. The fact Ranma has more innate domestic skills than [[FirstGirlWins Akane Tendo]] is supposed to be part of the comedy. Ditto his tendency to engage in feminine roles to achieve something he wants; that's just HypocriticalHumor, given his professed distaste for acting that way.

* ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureau'' was written to explain Blaze's (the author) own hypothesis on why Equestria had no humans as well as WishFulfillment. Due to his lack of experience as a writer however, the story came off as incredibly misanthropic, and the mixture of the [[InternetBackdraft backlash]] he received as well as losing interest in the story altogether rendered it a DeadFic; other authors came into the scene to write their own {{Recursive Fanfiction}}s based off TCB, taking the basic framework of the story to espouse their [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters Humans Are Bastards]] views.

[[AC: Real Life]]
* DonaldTrump's presidential run was denounced to an unprecedented degree by Democrats, journalists, and even fellow Republicans. Yet in the end, it turned out that many voters actually ''liked'' many of the same traits his opponents found most troubling: his lack of political experience, outspokenness, etc.
** This is, of course, often the case with politicians in general: half the country will consider (and attempt to portray) them a monstrous villain, only to be shocked and horrified when the other half of the country either doesn't care or actually views a candidate's supposed flaws as virtues due to philosophical differences.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flask_(web_framework) Flask]] was originally created as a parody of similar web frameworks, implementing every bad design decision from other frameworks that the author could think of. [[http://lucumr.pocoo.org/2010/4/3/april-1st-post-mortem/ He was quite surprised to learn that some people actually liked it, and asked him for the source code so that they could expand it.]]
