* With the publication of Harper Lee's "lost" novel, ''Go Set a Watchman'', a sequel to ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' the transformation of [[spoiler: Atticus Finch into a bitter bigot trying to stop the desegregation of the Deep South]] has already tarnished the novel's legacy.

** ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' has a vocal minority of people who believe that the revelation that [[spoiler: Nico di Angelo is gay and has feelings for Percy for most of their acquaintance]] ruined the series, saying it had no other relevance than to be part of the author's liberal agenda and is inappropriate subject matter for the target audience.

Either when the ''real'' Andrews died and Andrew Neiderman took over for the books, after the ''Casteel'' series ended and Neiderman began the ''Cutler'' series (The first series not started by Andrews herself), after the publication of the ''Orphans'' miniseries with the change in format, when they did away with the stepback covers, or when Neiderman stopped doing family sagas all together. ** ''Dollanganger'' fans had a field day with the ''Christopher's Diary'' series, and the reveal that [[spoiler:Cory was alive]].

** This wasn't entirely unfounded. KJA had been consistently proved to be a horrid writer in every universe he'd attempted before, to the extent that other ''Star Wars'' writers retconned his work. Since his ''Dune'' novels were published, all opinions were proved true when the books he wrote blatantly contradicted a plot point established in the first book, on the first page, the first paragraph, the first ''sentence''. You can't ruin a franchise any worse than that.

* Academics tend to whine that whatever books are selling more than the books they want to have people read will ruin literature FOREVER. Usually it's the fault of academia in the first place, when they write and print books only for the wealthy and privileged then complain about the unwashed masses not reading the "TrueArt" books. Some good examples, look at the reviews of TrueArt academic literary critics for Creator/WilkieCollins' ''Literature/TheWomanInWhite'', often considered now to be a great example of nineteenth century literature, and ''TheLordOfTheRings'', whose reviews by the literati were not only absolutely disparaging but in many cases were by people who plainly hadn't read the book. * HarryPotter got together with [[spoiler: [[HeroesWantRedheads Ginny]] instead of [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend Hermione]]]]? Instead of [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Luna]]? Instead of [[FoeYay Draco]]? Instead of [[PerverseSexualLust me]]? Ruined FOREVER!
