If certain fans take the Chicken Little approach and announce that the sky is falling, it's mainly an expression of their fears that the writing staff don't care much about the source material, particularly if [[AudienceAlienatingPremise it's not mainstream-friendly]].

...or so you would be told by many, many, ''many'' fans.

For some people, the very act of adaptation ''is'' decay. A film version of something should be a direct [[ShotForShotRemake word-for-word transcription]], with utmost care that the sets, costumes and people be reproduced in every detail. If a character who wears a homburg in the original now wears a fedora, that will be enough to ruin the character, and therefore ruin the film. It will be all you will hear about from these fans on message boards, with them going on at length to explain how his homburg visually defined his entire personality in a way that a fedora never could (even though both look almost exactly the same, except for the top).

This trope is not only used for adaptations and translations. It is also applicable to ongoing series where a significant change is made between seasons. The trope can be explained in terms of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prospect_theory prospect theory]], where fans are much more averse to losing any aspects of the original, compared to the enjoyment gained from any "improvements".

But sometimes the fans who complain may be right. When producers make drastic changes just for the heck of it, it can get rid of any redeeming qualities the property had. An established franchise making sudden, drastic changes usually heralds the beginning of RunningTheAsylum and/or a DorkAge. If fans liked the franchise for what it was, and then it is totally changed, the new stuff may be good and please the fans, but they are right to complain that what they liked is never coming back. And the most important, they can argue that they aren't complaining because it was changed, they are complaining because it was changed ''for the worse'', the new version is not just different, it is bad. The introduction of online updates to video games can make the criticisms more valid: unlike a new sequel that can simply be ignored, updates can effectively make the game they enjoyed non-existent. {{Nerf}}s are particularly likely to cause fan uproar.

An adaptation that goes through too many changes can become a bastardization of the source material that seems like an insult to the fans, or even become InNameOnly, fans can even argue about why adapting something popular to profit on the existing demographic, but don't deliver something that connects to them.
