* ''Series/LawAndOrder'' has had their share of cast replacements over the years, but most have been handled pretty well. Among the more notable Replacement Scrappies are Nora Lewin (Dianne Wiest) for Adam Schiff (Steven Hill), Joe Fontana (Dennis Farina) for Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach), and Serena Southerlyn (Elisabeth Rohm) for Abbie Carmichael (Creator/AngieHarmon).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'' Eobard Thawne, also known as the Reverse Flash, was considered a very compelling villain due to his affinity for long-term strategy, ability to defeat TheHero multiple times over, and having enough room in his character for AlternativeCharacterInterpretation. He falls victim to a RetGone at the end of Season One, however, and is replaced as the BigBad by Zoom. Zoom has yet to receive a fraction of the praise Thawne received, [[spoiler: in part due to his mimicking Thawne's plan of posing as a mentor to the Flash and killing his family members.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Tracy in ''Series/ForeverKnight'' was never well received among fans, especially after the [[DroppedABridgeOnHim insulting and unceremonious]] death of the beloved character Schanke. Both Schanke and Tracy were Nick's human partners who do not know he is a vampire. Even so most fans do recognized that the actress Lisa Ryder tried her best and wasn't her fault.

** Tina Bokand/Dinah Drake was destined to become this, after going against fan opinion [[spoiler: and ditching four iterations of the Black Canary, as well as ignoring the possibility of Laurel's actual Earth-2 Doppelganger, Black Siren being reformed into such, therefore giving Kate Cassidy the shaft once again,]] Tina has been seen as an inferior Black Canary in comparison to Laurel and Sara. Doesn't help that all the CharacterShilling she's received in her first two episodes alone could rival [[CreatorsPet Felicity's]].

* While it was hardly her fault, there was little chance of ''Series/BeautyAndTheBeast1987'' continuing on with Jo Anderon as the new Beauty after Katherine Chancellor's death, and the ending of the all important romance between her and Vincent, and Linda Hamilton's highly publicized exit, due to her contractual obligation towards ''Film/Terminator2''. That said, it's very difficult to find anyone who thoroughly enjoyed the character of Diane Bennett.

* Dr. Billy Peele as a replacement for Dr. Matt Crower in ''Series/AmericanGothic''. The showrunners have since gone on record that this was down to ExecutiveMeddling by people at the network who believed that Matt wasn't a "strong, heroic" (i.e. macho asshole) antagonist for Lucas, failing to realize that the main conflict was over Caleb's moral development rather than any specific situation and that the kindly, gentle Matt was meant to be a demonstration that you can't fight moral corruption with aggression. This led to a spectacularly malicious plot towards the end of the show where [[spoiler: Billy was led to believe that he was bringing [[FemmeFatale Selena]] to a HighHeelFaceTurn only to discover that she was setting him up as a patsy for Lucas's murder]]. When even the writers make it clear that they think you're a Scrappy...

* Arthur Petrelli from ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' has a rather nasty backstory behind him. Originally a PosthumousCharacter, he was very suddenly brought in during Volume Three, revealed to have by far the most [[GameBreaker broken power]] in the series yet and personal designs on world domination. Further, the very first episodes introducing him were explicitly devoted to his killing off basically every non-Sylar villain the series had cultivated up to that point. Maury Parkamn, the "Nightmare Man" sold in Season 2 as being [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil worse than Sylar]], met his end by Arthur, as did the immensely popular Adam Monroe, widely regarded as ''the'' MagnificentBastard to beat. The thing was, though, Maury and Adam were products of Season 2, which was plagued by a writer's strike. While the writers were on strike, replacements were brought in who built up Maury and Adam. The original writers, upon returning, immediately set out to dismantle the work of their replacements, who they [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=19125 had a major grudge with]]. Thus, Arthur Petrelli was retooled as a Voldemort-esque GreaterScopeVillain. This didn't quite work the way the Volume 3 writers planned, due to Arthur being a [[InvincibleVillain Boring Invincible Villain]] who regularly slipped into VillainSue territory.
