** Many MLP DarkFic are really starting to age horribly or looked back as OldShame, this may be due to the fact that almost all of them were written with the "DarkerAndEdgier and/or BloodierAndGorier for the sake of being so" mindset.

** Additionally, the concept of a MarySue has changed a ''lot'' since the seventies - just as storytelling has. Accusations of CanonSue are ''far'' more common in traditional heroes and even of older works in TheNewTens as they were in the seventies and eighties.

* This is a notable problem with many old ''{{Redwall}}'' fics, particularly ''Fanfic/TheUrthbloodSaga'', that deals with the theme of "noble vermin". When these fics where written back in the late 90s/early 2000s, the concept of including good foxes, rats and weasels in a story based on a series that is so strictly [[BlackAndWhiteMorality black-and-white]] was fresh and challenging. Nowadays however, it's rare to find a fic that ''doesn't'' include it, or that plays the AlwaysChaoticEvil mantra from the official books straight.

** ''TheDracoTrilogy'' is a classic of this trope in action. A modern reader who is overly familiar with the concept (and [[SturgeonsLaw often poor implementation]]) of DracoInLeatherPants stories, both within and outside of the ''Harry Potter'' fandom, may well find this story's concept relatively unremarkable, or may only know about the plagiarism scandal surrounding it, and be surprised to find out that not only was this one of the dominating fanfics of its day, but that it launched the career of CassandraClare, writer of TheMortalInstruments.

** Another historical instance is back then, there are users that did 'parodies'/fanmakes in the 'Cartoon X-Overs section' that carbon copies many movies, mostly Disney with different characters playing the roles. Though there are people that use to do these before they quit and move on, those that still do these today are unoriginal and having no talents to improve as writers.
