* FanonDiscontinuity: A particularly harsh example; the books aside from TheIliad and Literature/TheOdyssey were so disliked that they don't even exist anymore.

!! ''All epics''
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: This has been going on or centuries. Later writers tend to be much more sympathetic to the Trojan side, especially Hector. Another example is Thersites, who is portrayed in the Iliad as a cowardly weakling. In Shakespeare's ''Troilus and Cressida'' by contrast, he is still a coward but also the only character who recognizes how ridiculous the entire conflict really is.

* [[{{Sequelitis}} Prequelitis]]: {{Aristotle}} criticised the work as lacking focus, as it was more of a series of events than a unified story. ''The Iliad'' and ''The Odyssey'' are considered superior works.

!! ''The Cypria''
* HilariousInHindsight: Zeus basically sets off the whole Trojan War in order to trim down the world's population. He's clearly gotten lazy over the last three thousand-odd years, seeing as the human population has grown much, much, much, ''much'' larger than it was either before or after the conflict.
