This trope is about when you have a character who was well-liked amongst fans only to become The Scrappy later on.

Possible reasons for this include but are not limited to:

If this ruins the series for fans or is caused by the series' writing getting worse, then it is Seasonal Rot or Jumped the Shark. Contrast with Rescued from the Scrappy Heap which is when The Scrappy becomes popular as opposed to the other way around.

No Examples, Please! Those go on a work's YMMV subpage.

Feel free to edit the description if you dislike the current one.
