** The M9 pistol, the sidearm of most branches of the US military since 1985, has also gained the same sort of reputation as the M16, thanks to reliability problems the US Navy [=SEALs=] encountered while training with the Beretta 92F - the slides would often throw themselves off the frame and into the user's face, thanks to a part failing after 5,000 rounds when it should have lasted for five times as many. Beretta sent out replacement parts and designed the later 92FS so that the hammer would prevent the slide from flying off in the event that the locking block fails, but it wasn't enough to save the gun's reputation; the [=SEALs=] and various other units switched to the SIG P226 and P228, and those branches which didn't resist switching over to the M9 in the first place have tried to replace it with a sidearm based on the old M1911 every five years or so since its adoption, citing distrust over the pistol's reliability.

** In Wisconsin, Milwaukee has a reputation as a WretchedHive, to where many out-state residents are too scared to even come to Milwaukee for anything but Summerfest or Brewers games... both of which are physically isolated from the rest of the city. Nevermind that Milwaukee's violent crime rate is actually 1 in 100, meaning there's a 99 percent chance you WON'T become a victim of crime in Milwaukee.
* Animals will be stereotyped accordingly to one trait, or one mishap by a member of the species. This is especially noticeable in Dog breeds; just ask anyone with a Pit Bull type breed.

** In a related story, their neighbors to the south aren't going to let {{UsefulNotes/Atlanta}} forget how they shut down the city after getting ''two inches of snow'' while northern cities like Chicago, New York and Boston got ''far'' worse and stayed open. [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]] mocking them for this probably isn't going to help.

** Several design flaws contributed to the infamy of the DC-10 when it started rolling out in the 1970s which were 1. cargo doors that were very hard to close and latch properly; 2. vents that were not sufficient enough to equalize cabin pressure in the event of an explosive decompression; 3. the hydraulics and control cables were routed into the cabin floor; 4. no locking mechanism on the leading-edge slats in case of failure; and 5. no backups in case of complete hydraulic failure. These flaws contributed to most of the 1,261 occupant fatalities incurred as of May 2013. And as a result, the DC-10 was discontinued in 1989 due to plummeting demand since very few people wanted to fly in them.

** Another plane that still generates a BrokenBase is the F-104 Starfighter. The first reason was that it had developed a reputation as an unsafe and unreliable aircraft. [[AcePilot Erich Hartmann]], one of the first people to ever fly in a jet fighter and a commander in the West German Luftwaffe declared it unfit for Luftwaffe service. This was before the Starfighter was even introduced. The second was the Lockheed Bribery Scandals. It made it look like the Starfighter was so bad/dangerous to fly that you had to ''bribe'' some one to use it. Needless to say, there is still some argument as to if the Starfighter deserves that reputation or not.

* Despite his better track record with race issues since, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is never going to hear the end of some racist remarks that cost him a federal judgeship back in 1986. To put it in perspective, [[Music/GunsNRoses Axl Rose]], who himself will never be able to live down the racist-at-first-glance lyrics in the second verse of "One in a Million" (mentioned on the Music subpage), criticized Donald Trump for making the appointment in the first place.

** It could've been worse for him--he's more remembered for taking no actions to prevent the Civil War than he is for taking actions to help ''accelerate'' it.

Added DiffLines:

* Ted [=McGinley=] is often referred to in the context of JumpTheShark, as in "This show is doomed because he joined the cast." Even those who enjoy his work and think well of him have made such jokes. The basis for this is due to him being a cast member on ''Series/HappyDays'' and ''Series/TheLoveBoat'' during their SeasonalRot phases, with the old Jump the Shark website really popularizing the sentiment years ago. Of course, viewers have noted in [=McGinley=]'s defense that the two cited shows were already going downhill before he joined up (with Fonzie's infamous shark jump happening three years before the fact). [=McGinley=] has had a good sense of humor about it, such as joining in the Jump the Shark parody in the last episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''.

* Ask anyone what immediately comes to mind when they think about Chicago, Illinois. One of the biggest cities in the Midwest? Final stop for cowboys on long cattle drives? The Sears/Willis Tower? Nope. Most of the time, it will be one of four things: Bootlegging, UsefulNotes/AlCapone, TheMafia and corrupt politicians.

* Thanks to the "Daisy Girl" ad, Barry Goldwater is now chiefly remembered as an advocate of potentially apocalyptic nuclear war, and for losing a Presidential election over it. That he suppressed the ad after its initial broadcast [[StreisandEffect apparently didn't help matters]].

* This one counts for two very different individuals after one incident: Fatima Moreira de Melo is a very successful Dutch field hockey player, winning among others the gold medal at the Summer Olympics. After her hockey career, she became a professional poker player. Chantal Janzen is a successful Dutch musical singer and presenter. However, they are mostly remembered after Fatima sang a song at a Dutch TV-gala, which was presented by Chantal. The song didn't go very well. The first words from Chantal were (in Dutch): "Wat kan ze hockeyen hè, die meid?!" (Translation: "She really has hockey skills, this girl!"). The entire audience was in [[HilarityEnsues stitches]] after this comment. When one of them, but especially Fatima is mentioned, this incident is often referred to [[https://youtu.be/zF32vijCEYc See for yourself.]]
