** 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 and knowledge of the jungle are restored.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueGodsAndMonsters'':''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueGodsAndMonsters''[[note]]Designed as an alternate universe to begin with, so these are ''far'' from the only changes to mainstream versions. Batman usually isn't a vampiric Kirk Langstrom, for example.[[/note]]:

Added DiffLines:

* While SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} is a PsychoForHire in the comics, he's still an AntiHero who has some redeeming qualities. In ''WesternAnimation/HulkVs'', Deadpool is a unrepentant member of Weapon X. Deadpool [[WouldHurtAChild makes jokes about killing babies and almost shoots a child]], when these are [[EvenEvilHasStandards lines Deadpool would never cross]] in the comics.

* 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.

*** The titular Batwoman in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMysteryOfTheBatwoman'' is much more of an anti-heroine than the original Kathy Kane (and it predated the Kate Kane Batwoman), so they DC insisted that the filmmakers not actually use Kathy Kane. This didn't stop them from homaging her via the character Kathy Du''quesne'' or making her a suspect... [[spoiler: or even making this Kathy one of the Batwomen.]]

** Professor Callaghan in the comics is friendly and supportive of Hiro. In the film; not only is he more condescending; [[spoiler: but ends up being the villain Yokai in a NotHisSled twist; stealing the microbots in order exact revenge on Krei for getting his daughter lost in an alternate dimension in a botched experiment. Worse is the fact that his daughter, the whole reason for his revenge; [[ShootTheShaggyDog is alive in the alternate dimesion]], making his whole vendetta against Krei completely unnecessary; but Callaghan is too blinded to realize it until it's too late]].
