** Interestingly, the comic's CerberusSyndrome was directly connected to one of the two primary creators leaving the comic. There had actually been several "what if" comics to the tune of "what if one of the two creators gained sole control?" The fact that some of the "joke" overdone plotlines in the what-ifs ended up actually being used in the comic once it became single-writer is HilariousInHindsight to even fans that didn't bail out after the change.

* ''WebComic/PlanetZebeth'' isn't unknown for the occasional filler comics here and there, but thanks to the author running into some financial hardships for several years, he started to put in even more filler showing his AuthorAvatar ranting about the state of the economy and the filler rants seem to have taken over in terms of updates since there hasn't been any actual updates in the comics for a long time. Many fans have given up and no longer watch the site after getting very tired of the author's countless political rants that had taken over the site.

* ''Webcomic/KnightsOfBuenaVista'' has an InUniverse example when [[ShowWithinAShow "FantasiaLand"]] removed the "hero's trial" mechanic from the latest edition, and [[GameMaster Walter]] complained about it for a week.

* This seems to be the mentality of quite a few people about when the webcomic ''{{Megatokyo}}'' underwent CerebusSyndrome. The comic basically switched its fanbase from "people who know about shoujo manga" to "people who ''like'' shoujo manga and/or character-based plots", so while the quality is still good and the update problem has arguably improved, it did cut a few people out of its main circle. And since these people are those who ''don't'' like things...[[HateDom well]]...
* The character of Fanboy in the ''MagicTheGathering'' webcomic ''UGMadness'' plays out this trope a lot, mimicking the fanbase of the game, as seen [[http://www.ugmadness.net/index.php?date=2005-07-22 here]]. The actual author of the comic, though, is more reasonable, as show in strips such as [[http://www.ugmadness.net/index.php?date=2005-07-11 this]].
* This mindset is satirized in [[http://www.shortpacked.com/2009/comic/book-8/07-when-robin-didnt-meet-that-other-guy/smallbots/ this page]] of ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}''. In particular, that strip is a jab at Transformers webcomic ''LilFormers'', weekly one-panel gags featuring chibi-style Transformers that tend to occupy the same space as transparent knocks against [[TransformersFilmSeries the first live-action movie]], ''[[TransformersAnimated Animated]]'', and ''[[TransformersFilmSeries Revenge of the Fallen]]'', in that order.
* Quite a few fans of ''MSPaintAdventures'' complained when Andrew Hussie switched from the zanier, gag-based humor of ''ProblemSleuth'' to the more [[CerebusSyndrome plot and character-centric]] ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''.

* Parodied in ''UnwindersTallComics'' where Unwinder didn't even like the original books in question, yet he still feels the need to criticize the upcoming film adaptation.

* ''PennyArcade'' showed this as [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/8/23/ a rite of passage]] for Gabe's descent into Dungeons and Dragons fandom because he now had a version of the game to hate for not being the version he started with.
* Parodied in ''SanAntonioRockCity'': one strip beings with a fan walking up to Mitch Clem demanding that he bring back ''NothingNiceToSay'' to which he says "fine". This is followed by an exact copy of a previous SARC strip with the characters replaced by those of NNTS. The last panel shows the fan appreciating this strip and claiming on how much "better" it is.
* {{xkcd}} parodies this with "[[http://xkcd.com/1172/ Workflow]]". The change: the program no longer overheats your computer when you hold down the spacebar. The complaint: someone with a ComplexityAddiction had configured their system to interpret a rapid temperature rise as a useful command.

* A ''lot'' of fans of ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' screamed this when Tatsuya Ishida embraced feminism and changed the comic style from BlackComedy and subversive [[TakeThat Take Thats]] at religion to a downright odd and thought provoking world where everything is controlled [[Film/TheMatrix Matrix-Style]] by commercialism and male chauvinism. [[DearNegativeReader His attitude]] towards those people has not made things better.
