* August Derlath's additions to TheCthulhuMythos. Notoriously, these included [[TheScrappy a good vs. evil element]] for the [[EldritchAbomination Outer Gods and Great Old Ones]], due to how much it [[[[Flanderization]] oversimplified]] the characters in question by substituting BlueAndOrangeMorality for black and white, human morality.

* Creator/VCAndrews fans have a few different opinions on this. 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]].
