People absolutely love it! Then it gets twenty three sequels, all of which get progressively worse.

Lord of the Rings, written by George R. R. Martin.

Lord of the Rings is now even Darker and Edgier to the point where the Heroes are almost as bad as the evil forces they're fighting, and while the ring was truly destroyed, Frodo lost almost all of his friends through the arduous journey. Now he becomes an Empty Shell of his former self. Eventually, a majority of the audience finds the story too bleak to be enjoyable, save for the few readers who unironically enjoy such dark content.


Gradius, except it's made by Sanrio.

The gameplay doesn't change that much, except your character is now a regular protester and the main villain is the head of a deceased dictator named Shi Tin Pin note . Even worse, your character can't even attack.

Code Vein, except you're just a regular human with a gas mask and a stick.

Coronation Street now takes place exclusively in a gym. The soap opera elements stay as is, there's just a lot more punching and overall fitness.

The Plague Dogs as an upbeat Illumination comedy.

While not as bad as the various other films, the lightheartedness tends to be annoying at times.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses but the soundtrack was replaced by Eurotrance.

Literally just a shoddy knockoff of Spirited Away, but even less endearing and more uncanny. Resembles the original in name and barebones character design only.

Housepets!, in the style of Alfred Hitchcock

The pets are now real animals with a tendency of being killed by killer crows or a serial killer with a habit of stabbing anything taking a shower.

Twilight goes on as normal until supernatural stuff starts happening. After Edward accidentally kills Bella, the books follow the much less moral Cullens as they try to leave Forks.

The traced over Gru already has 3 daughters (and all of them like to curse a lot more), and they're all evil, but get their comeuppance in the end when a failed Bank Robbery puts them in jail.

Monty Python's New Flying Circus, a 90's reboot of the franchise with new British Actors (whether or not any of the old cast makes Cameos is up to you).

The whole film is full of Narms to the point the next Earthbound sequel uses the whole film for sampling.

All the monsters become hyper-realistic, and the player characters are played by fat dudes painted in yellow, kids obviously wouldn't watch it, neither do adults.

Everything looks much less zany in terms of visuals. Since Wes Anderson likely doesn't know how harem animes work, he instead goes after romantic comedies. It'd be more like Twilight if it was in a World of Snark.

Journey, with a typical story structure and dialogue.

It's so generic that most gamers don't find it special, the story structure kills off the imagination and mystery. It's so mediocre that reviewers refuse to review it.

Voltes V, only this time it's Real Robot Genre.

Voltes V keeps its dark tone. However, instead of being incredibly Voltron-esque, the action style will be closer to Pacific Rim.

High School Musical with no music whatsoever.
