** Zilla Sr. finally got some respect after his appearance in ''ComicBook/GodzillaRulersOfEarth'', where he managed to cause some trouble for the original Godzilla [[VillainousValour despite being outmatched in almost every respect]]. He even leaves the fight alive after realizing he had no chance against his tougher counterpart.

Added DiffLines:

** Kenny is an unusual subversion in that he was the Scrappy to the ''creators'', rather than the audience. Trey Parker and Matt Stone had become sick of the RunningGag involving killing Kenny in every episode, and eventually decided to [[KilledOffForReal kill him off permanently.]] However, they later changed their minds and brought Kenny back, while getting rid of the traits that made them dislike him. Kenny typically survives post-revival episodes, and only dies when the plot specifically requires it. Parker and Stone also made a point of giving him more CharacterDevelopment, including TheReveal where [[spoiler:he is the masked superhero Mysterion]].

** King Sombra was heavily criticized for [[GenericDoomsdayVillain lacking motive or characterization]], and being (seemingly) KilledOffForReal after showing enough [[NoNonsenseNemesis ruthlessness]] and [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy intelligence]] that fans decried [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter his potential wasted]]. Even the show staff admitted he didn't work out as they hoped. Two events rescued him, first, ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFiendshipIsMagic'' showed his StartOfDarkness, giving him a ''much needed'' backstory that was very well-recieved. Then the [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E25TheCutieRemarkPart1 Season 5 Finale's]] first BadFuture showed what would happen if he won: Sombra becomes a frighteningly competent military dictator who [[WarIsHell plunges all of Equestria into war]], and [[GodzillaThreshold Celestia has to lead an army against him]] in a BigBadassBattleSequence. It really says something that, despite being the most disliked major villain originally, [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Obffm1lXTYY/VmC7MmB5jvI/AAAAAAACdM8/igXyYomDT2k/s1600/Capture.JPG Sombra's future is the most popular one with fans by a]] ''very'' large margin.

** Surprisingly Korra herself suffers a case of this in Book 2. At the onset of the season she gained a lot of criticism for seemingly regressing in her CharacterDevelopment from the previous season and actually becoming more hot headed and unreasonable then she was previously (to the point that many fans were happy she disappeared for an episode [[spoiler: after being eaten by a dark spirt]]. After [[spoiler: hearing Avatar Wan's story and regaining her memory]] in the [[WhamEpisode Beginnings Two partner]] she became considerably more [[TookALevelInKindness wiser and humble]], apologising to Tenzin for her {{Jerkass}} treatment of him at the start of the season and thinking her decisions through much more carefully (it also probably helped that this coincided with Mako becoming the shows {{Scrappy}} again after [[spoiler: restarting the LoveTriangle subplot]]).

** Princess Cadance was a BaseBreaker after her introduction in the Season 2 finale, "[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart1 A Canterlot]] [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 Wedding]]", with some fans feeling she was a step backwards to the franchise's previous, more stereotypically girly generations due to being a [[PrincessesPreferPink literally pink princess]] whose [[ThePowerOfLove special power was love]]. Being introduced [[RememberTheNewGuy entirely out of the blue]] in a two-part episode revolving entirely around her wedding, and having been replaced by an evil shapeshifter until the last 10 minutes of Part 2 didn't help matters. That she proved [[DamselOutOfDistress surprisingly active in saving the day]] and [[TheWoobie having to go through a lot of suffering]] to get her [[EarnYourHappyEnding well earned happy ending]] managed to win many over. The dissenting faction quickly changed their tune after the Season 3 two-part opener, "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E1TheCrystalEmpirePart1 Crystal]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E2TheCrystalEmpirePart2 Empire]]" when she helped thwart the villain by having her husband pick her up and throw her off a tower at him because she was too weakened to fly under her own power.
