* Many claimed that ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel'' Jumped The Shark after [[ConvenientMiscarriage Lilah's Miscarriage]], pretty much since the day it happened. Then again, since half the people complaining [[{{Hatedom}} never liked the strip in the first place]], it's hard to tell if that was really the strip's actual fans that felt that way, and the notoriety of the storyline seems to have just given them something specific to vent their rage on.

Added DiffLines:

* Sometime when ''Webcomic/{{Zoophobia}}'' [[ScheduleSlip stopped updating regularly]], it suddenly became ruined forever in the eyes of some fans and critics, not unlike what would later happen with ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. All of a sudden, the once-praised art, characters, and story started getting criticized to hell and back. It got to the point where [[OldShame even the author was starting to agree]], and she scrapped the comic to pursue other projects. She does have plans to reboot it in the future, so time will tell if it will become "ruined forever" again when that happens.


* ''{{Erfworld}}'' is promptly Ruined FOREVER whenever anything that seemingly violates the rules of the setting occurs on the grounds that it's a [[YouKeepUsingThatWord Deus Ex Machina]], or whenever the tide seems to turn unexpectedly against the [[VillainProtagonist "good guys"]].

Added DiffLines:

** Quite a few people vowed to stop reading Gunnerkrigg Court when Kat was confirmed [[spoiler:gay/bi]] and went to great lengths to affirm that they didn't see it coming.

Added DiffLines:

** Some fans of the wackier, less serious Problem Sleuth didn't take kindly to Homestuck's more plot-driven storylines.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has had this charge levied at it a number of times. One of the most notable examples is the reaction to the "[[LowerDeckEpisode Hivebent]]" arc, which shifted focus away from the main characters at a [[CliffHanger point of high dramatic tension]] to develop a [[GeodesicCast large group]] of internet trolls, who had for the most part had either secondary roles or not appeared at all. Part of the complaint stems from the fact that opposed to the [[AngstWhatAngst fairly subdued]] main characters, the trolls spend much of their time [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder killing each other]], [[LoveDodecahedron making out]], or [[{{Wangst}} crying about either of the above.]]
** The main complaints of the Hivebent arc are that it caused a ''massive'' fanbase shift, and early adopters had to deal with suddenly being outnumbered 4:1 by a crowd that thought this was a comic about trolls and their funny human friends.

** More recently, some people have been feeling this for the two UU/uu siblings after the reveal,especially with the initial shock. [[spoiler:The new trolls aren't trolls, but they're called Cherubs? They look like Lord English, really ugly! RUINED FOREVER]] Most people think [[spoiler:Calliope]] is cute, however, so this may not be the case.
*** (Less Ruined. It's not a strawman-cute story, it's an ORIGIN STORY. But still rotted; please delete this when you have a better explanation)
