* ''Fanfic/TheRoyalReunion'': In the first chapter, Anna and Elsa come to realize their parents, despite being well-intended, didn't make the best decisions for them. There's a large amount of resentment for Gasper and Malin's way of dealing with Elsa's powers.


* A comparatively minor example occurs in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Frozen}}''/''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' crossover ''Fanfic/IceFury''; while Elsa misses her parents, she later muses that they never truly realized what she needed to properly control her powers, and finds herself appreciating the more straightforward support she receives from Stoick and Valka.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4507303/1/Two-Faces Two Faces]]'' depicts an alternate version of ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' where Batman was able to 'save' Rachel Dawes. Disfigured and grieving Harvey's death, Rachel abandons her old morality to the extent of taking part in plans to hire mercenaries to kill the Joker, and even goes so far as to emotionally manipulate Bruce to divert his attention and try to manipulate him into helping her. When Bruce realises what Rachel has become, [[spoiler:he can only stop Rachel, a mob boss, and the still-alive Harvey Dent from trying to either blackmail him or make him act as their enforcer/assassin by trying to turn them all against each other, which results in Rachel and the gangster being killed and Harvey being disfigured (fortunately suffering enough brain damage to forget Batman's identity). At the fic's conclusion, Bruce reflects to Alfred that, as Bruce, he can't get over what Rachel did, and as Batman, he wouldn't have excused her but would have forgiven her]].

Ziyal, who has always tried to see her father as a good man, is devastated to learn the extent of Dukat's evil, and is left to consider whether the fact that Dukat genuinely loved her makes up for anything else.

** Shielder tells stories of the Knights of the Round Table's various flaws (Gawain was arrogant, Lancelot had too many admirers, Tristan fell asleep too often, Gareth was boy crazy which made Gawain overprotective of her), causing Bazett to say her image of the Round Table has been shattered forever.
** Having heard of how noble and pure Jeanne d'Arc was, Saber is shocked to learn that the homicidal maniac Avenger is Jeanne Alter.[[note]]Though according to ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', Jeanne Alter is a clone created by Gilles de Rais' wishes and the real Jeanne is indeed incorruptible.[[/note]]

* There is no single moment when Bella Swan’s opinion changes, but during the ''[[https://www.whofic.com/series.php?seriesid=2708 Twilight Storm]]'' series, her travels with the Tenth Doctor cause her to re-evaluate her old feelings for Edward and conclude that each of them brought out the worst parts of each other, being too dependent on the other for happiness rather than exploring their own identities and desires. As a result, when Bella returns to Forks in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12155088/1/New-Dawn New Dawn]]'', she [[ShipSinking explicitly states that she doesn’t want to get back together with Edward]], even if she still considers the Cullens as a whole to be her friends.


* ''Fanfic/ApotheosisMHA'': Like many Villain!Izuku fics, Izuku's idolization of All Might dies when All Might says he can't be a hero without a quirk. It only becomes worse when he learns about One for All from All for One and that All Might himself was actually quirkless -- he outright accuses the man of being a {{hypocrite}}.

* [[https://archiveofourown.org/works/16870942/chapters/39617728 Horizon: Star Driven]] has Izuku being told by All Might that he can't be a hero. The first thing he does is to take off all of his hero posters and figures from his room. When they meet again a year later (after Izuku has started to build up for his dream to get humanity back into space), All Might claims Izuku has broken the law with his hoverboard (not believing him about building it himself) - and Izuku has [[ClusterFBomb quite a few choice words]] for his former idol. All Might is surprised at how venomous Izuku gets as he accuses him of trying to make him suicidal.

* ''FanFic/MarinetteDupainChengsSpitePlaylist'':
** Alya's regard for Ladybug takes a severe hit after she's replaced as the Fox heroine. While Ladybug has perfectly valid reasons for doing so, Alya isn't able to make the connection between her less-than-stellar actions as a civilian and Ladybug losing faith in her. What's worse, [[ToxicFriendInfluence Lila convinces her]] that Ladybug is actually a BitchInSheepsClothing, leading Alya to disavow her former heroine and [[spoiler:delete the Ladyblog]].
** As part of the story's climax, Adrien is hit by a double whammy: not only does he learn that [[ArchnemesisDad Hawkmoth is his father]], but that [[spoiler:his MissingMom was actually in a coma and hidden in the manor all along... and that the ''reason'' she was in that coma in the first place is because she was misusing and abusing the Peacock Miraculous]].

* Downplayed in ''Fanfic/TheMUSHUVerse'' story "Agents of WADDLES": WesternAnimation/EdgarAndEllen are excited when they meet [[WesternAnimation/{{Detentionaire}} Lee Ping]], as they admire the fact that he pulled off the biggest prank in high school history. Lee, however, is [[FrameUp quick to set the record straight]], leaving them disappointed and slightly depressed.

* In ''FanFic/HopeOnADistantMountain'', Makoto greatly respected Kyouko after everything he went through in the [[UnwinnableTrainingSimulation D-Course simulation]]. However, that version of her was created before the ''actual'' Kirigiri Kyouko was scouted by Hope's Peak. The real deal turns out to be much colder, crueler and pettier than her sim counterpart, with a brutal vendetta [[DaddyIssues against her father]] and willing to do whatever she deems necessary to bring him down. The more he sees of how far she's willing to go, the more disappointed Makoto becomes.
