Characters that got Gimli'd (changed significantly to comic relief)

    As a huge LOTR fan, one thing I hated was how between Fellowship and Two Towers, Gimli changed from a proud, sturdy character with a slightly too high opinion of Dwarves, to this bumbling comic relief character who falls down a lot and every line is some kind of gag. It really fell flat for me even as a kid of 15.

    There are two MCU characters who have been Gimli'd - Bruce Banner (the way he acts in Avengers 2012 vs. Infinity War/Endgame is unrecognisable) and the worst one of all, who was Gimli'd even more than Gimli was Drax. Drax's version is pretty similar to Gimli's - his prideful, slightly naive character just became this obnoxious idiot who laughs at everything by Guardians 2. I really hated that change - his quirk was that he didn't understand metaphors, which then changed to having absolutely no social skills whatsoever. It felt really jarring to me.

    I wondered what you all thought of the above, and if you had any other examples of characters given similar treatment after their first appearances?
