* In the first two ''VideoGame/TetrisTheGrandMaster'' games, the I piece, the sole piece that can make Tetrises, is regarded as one of the ''worst'' pieces to deal with at maximum gravity, as it requires specific conditions for an I piece on its long sides to rotate. ''Tetris: The Grand Master 3 -- Terror-Instinct'' fixes this by [[AntiFrustrationFeatures allowing a horizontally-laid I to "floor kick" off of the stack or the floor]], but only once per piece.

* ''VideoGame/{{Raiden}}''[='=]s SpreadShot is seen by many as one of the worst weapons at low power due to its weak damage and lack of rapid-fire. ''Raiden III'' makes it a rapid-fire weapon alongside the other three weapons and makes it a 3-way spread to begin with, making it somewhat more useful.

** Alia seems to have gotten this as well. Somewhere between [[FanservicePack becoming hot]], [[PromotedToPlayable pulling out her own buster]], and having her [[ExpositionFairy statements of the obvious]] turned down, the cries for her to StopHelpingMe seem to have subsided.

** Alia seems to have gotten this as well. Somewhere between [[FanservicePack becoming hot]], more attractive]], [[PromotedToPlayable pulling out her own buster]], and having her [[ExpositionFairy statements of the obvious]] turned down, [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper the cries for her to StopHelpingMe "Stop Helping Me"]] seem to have subsided.subsided. VideoGame/MegaManX6 did the first steps by making more of her dialog optional and more relevant and giving her a backstory, although VideoGame/MegaManX7 did a step back with her "Can you hear me?" thing.

Added DiffLines:

* When Hunter first appeared in the ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'' games he wasn't well-liked due to being mean to Spyro. Future installments have them as best friends. The games also emphasise his coolness while lowering his more undesirable traits like being lazy or being a jerk.

* Beowulf from ''VideoGame/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' was once known as a universally hated character for lying and cheating on Lachesis, people think he's a big liar and philanderer. But suddenly, it's revealed that Lachesis was still in love with her brother Eltoshan and got together with Finn in Thracia 776. Thus, fan reaction towards him has softened ever since (those who are pissed with him are probably going on his mediocre stats, and his 'stupid grin').
** In turn, however, fans started ragging on Lachesis as "one slutty princess". Still, she has yet to be completely pushed to the Scrappy Heap thanks to her sympathetic CharacterDevelopment and GameBreaker status.

* Charlotte from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. Pre-release marketing painted her as a CuteAndPsycho BitchInSheepsClothing who dressed in extremely {{Stripperiffic}} clothing to [[GoldDigger seduce rich men]], with seemingly few redeeming qualities. Once people got their hands on the actual game, however, it turned out Charlotte was quite different than anyone expected. Firstly, she's only a GoldDigger to support her poor family, and she's not actually a BitchInSheepsClothing: she just puts on a "cute damsel" act in frount of men because she [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon feels no-one will accept her for her real personality]] (which is more like TheLadette), and her romantic supports with rich guys all fall into NotWithThemForTheMoney by the end. She's also a total beast stat-wise and gives ''amazing'' pair-up bonuses to whoever she supports with. She ended up being one of the most well-liked characters in the game.

* As unpleasable as the ''{{Franchise/Sonic|TheHedgehog}}'' fandom is, some are starting to warm up to [[TheDitz Big the Cat]] after ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'' where his stupidity was funny rather than irritating.

** ''Chronicles'' also toned back Amy Rose from StalkerWithACrush to a more tolerable ClingyJealousGirl, and polished Rouge into a DeadpanSnarker par excellence.

** Niles, the {{Sadist}} PsychoForHire thief, became incredibly contentious once it was revealed he was the game's sole GayOption for male player characters. Similar to Charlotte, he was found to have HiddenDepths beyond his questionable qualities once the game was released, and his same-sex RelationshipUpgrade support with the Male Avatar was found to be genuinely heartwarming, to the point where the GayOption with him became one of the biggest [[FanPreferredCouple Fan Preferred Couples]] for the Male Avatar.
