* Grima, the GreaterScopeVillain of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', was hated for being a GenericDoomsdayVillain who is also an Expy of Loptor from ''Genealogy Of The Holy War''. ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden Shadows of Valentia]]'' [[spoiler: made him the BonusBoss of the new optional postgame dungeon and gave him a backstory as an artificial creation of a MadScientist that got a mind of it's own.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia]]'':
** Several members of the original cast were disliked for having terrible growth rates and / or poor characterisation. The remake upgrades several growth rates and increases the plot importance of several characters as well such as making Gray and Tobin ThoseTwoGuys.

** Bowser Jr. was the BaseBreakingCharacter in the series for replacing the Koopalings after ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' (except for ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'') and when Miyamoto revealed that he is Bowser's real son. However, some started to warm up to him after Junior ''and'' the Koopalings came together in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'', meaning that there's room for the whole darn QuirkyMinibossSquad after all. So much room, in fact, that in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for Wii U and 3DS'' the Koopalings are offered as variants of Bowser Jr. Their character trailer also helped; though their presence was already known by the time it was released, it made up for it in execution, where it made them look [[NightmareFuel legitimately threatening]]. His recent appearance in the UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03bAayBtcb0 Parental Controls video]] didn't hurt as the interactions he had with Bowser (as well as the big Koopa himself showing on how good of a father he is) helps make the video adorable to watch, [[HeartwarmingMoments especially at the end when both of them are playing on the console together.]] It also helps that the video spawned a [[MemeticMutation certain meme]] where Bowser runs up to shield Junior's eyes from... [[NoodleIncident something that the innocent little turtle isn't old enough to experience.]]

* ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'': The Stingray was widely considered a ScrappyWeapon due to being by far the least useful special due to its lack of power and slow movement speed. Then people began to realize that while it's not very well suited for multiplayer, it's extremely useful in [[MultiMookMelee Salmon Run]] for several reasons:
** Most salmonids move slowly enough that the Stingray can blow right through them if they're caught in a bottleneck.
** It can pierce the armor of nearly every Boss Salmonid. Most notably, it's the only weapon that directly damage [[DemonicSpiders Flyfish]].
** In Mothership levels, using it on the Mothership will destroy all of the Chinooks that spawn from it, basically causing a rain of Golden Eggs.

* Due to being TaintedByThePreview by its' multiplayer beta, the single-player campaign in ''VideoGame/Doom2016'' saved the whole game from simply being seen as an unneeded reboot to a beloved franchise, instead making it one of the best (if not ''the'' best) first person shooters of the year, and for many even making Game of the Year.

** It fully happened with ''Legacy of Romulus'' by adding the Romulans to the game, complete with a great backstory, finishing the Klingons, and the beginning of making a complex story arc starring cast members from the series. Later, it really proved it by introducing a new LoveToHate villain in the form of [[spoiler: Dr. Eric Cooper or rather his Undine duplicate]] and making him an ArcVillain to ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'''s Tuvok, an attack on Earth and Qo'noS, the end of the [[ConflictBall Fed-KDF War]] and finally making the BiggerBad show up.
