* In the children's book ''TheBraveLittleToaster'', the new appliances in Rob's apartment are friendly and helpful to Toaster and the other older appliances, helping them find a new owner via a radio show, and feel guilty for their role in replacing still useful appliances. In the movie, they are [[{{Jerkass}} arrogant and cruel to them]], even tossing them into a dumpster out of jealousy.

** One of the most famous examples is Kaa the python. In the book, he is a mentor and friend of Mowgli, helping to save him when he is kidnapped by monkeys and offering him advice for battle against the dholes, indeed never harming or threatening him in any way and saving his life more than once. The other animals in the jungle [[TheDreaded respect and fear him]] for his [[OldMaster wisdom]] and powers of hypnosis, which only Mowgli, because he is human, is immune to. In the [[Disney/TheJungleBook Disney movie]] and its sequel, he is an AffablyEvil villain whose only role in the plot is to serve as a minor nuisance. Apparently [[ExecutiveMeddling it was thought by Disney]] that audiences [[SnakesAreSinister wouldn't accept a snake as a heroic character.]] In the sequel Kaa, while still a conniving predator, [[VillainDecay is rather ineffective and pitiful]] rather than the genuinely effective, whilst comedic, villain he originally was (well, he was pretty pathetic from the start, but the sequel takes it up to eleven). [[TropesAreNotBad Although, ironically, this made him, arguably, the most popular character from the film and one of Disney's best recognised villains]]. The live-action movie adaptation portrayed him as a mindless monster who is used as a SharkPool by King Louie against thieves (in the novel, incidentally, Kaa was the only animal that the monkeys were afraid of - that's why Bagheera and Baloo went to him for help); this depiction draws on a ''different'' snake who appeared in ''The Second Jungle Book''. In the [[Film/TheJungleBook2016 2016 adaptation]], Kaa remains a villain but [[GenderFlip her]] serious nature, immense size, and knowledge of the jungle are restored.

** While he isn't much of a villain in the movie, since he [[spoiler: refuses to kill Nicodemus and ultimately kills Jenner when he tries to murder Justin]], Sullivan is a very minor character who never associated with Jenner in the book.

* In the Disney movie ''{{Disney/Bambi}}'', Ronno the deer is a jealous [[TheBully bully]] who spends much of his time antagonizing Bambi, culminating in their battle over Faline. In the original book, Ronno and Bambi were actually good friends instead of enemies, although this does change as they grow older and see each other as competition for does.

** Hades is a {{Satan}}-like villain ([[EverybodyHatesHades again]]), intent on overthrowing Zeus and taking over Mount Olympus. In Myth/GreekMythology, he was a [[LawfulNeutral neutral]] but just ruler of the dead and no worse than the [[JerkassGods other Greek gods]]. Hades had no antagonism towards Heracles, only meeting the hero when Heracles asked to borrow Cerberus for one of his twelve labors. Heracles's original divine enemy was Hera, his stepmother and Zeus's wife. As for overthrowing Zeus, Hades never tried that in the myths. While Hades ''did'' kidnap Persephone ([[JerkassGods with Zeus's permission]]), he was nowhere near as bad a husband as his brothers [[AnythingThatMoves Zeus and Poseidon]]. In fact, Hades is probably the least antagonistic god Hercules ever met in the original myth; the entire obstacle Hercules has in borrowing Cerberus is that Hades politely asks Hercules to ''bring it back when he's done''.

** Megara initially works for Hades before joining Hercules' side. In the mythology, Megara has little role beyond being tragically murdered by her husband.
