** In the movie, Brutus, while he isn't a villain, scares Mrs. Brisby away from the rosebush while in the book he just gives her a hard time about it before he ultimately lets her in. The book also makes it more clear that it's [[JerkassFacade just an act]] and Brutus isn't really mean, although he does try and help pull up the Brisby home later in the film, too.

* Both played straight and [[AdaptationalHeroism inverted]] in ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' - archetypal good guys PrinceCharming, RobinHood, and the FairyGodmother are villains while [[AdaptationalHeroism The Big Bad Wolf is one of the heroes, along with traditionally Always Chaotic Evil creatures like ogres and dragons.]]

** [[BigBad Shere Khan]] himself is upgraded slightly with each Disney adaptation. In the books he was an antagonist, but represented as somewhat pitiful (he has a bad leg, restricting his ability to hunt), is something of an [[SmugSnake arrogant fool]], and is taken half-heartedly by a lot of residents of the jungle, including Bagheera. The other animals generally see him as a troublemaker and a coward because he attacks humans (something forbidden under the Law of the Jungle), and characters like Bagheera and Kaa command a lot more respect and fear. In the original Disney film, he is somewhat [[LaughablyEvil comedic]] and playful, but is genuinely feared and implied to be stronger than many animals put together. In ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'', he is given much more deathly serious and calculating demeanor, but also is rather [[AffablyEvil affable]] and more of an AntiVillain in many of his appearances, with [[EvenEvilHasStandards a moral code]] that restrains his villainy. In the sequel to Disney's ''Jungle Book'' he is an [[KnightOfCerebus out and out dark presence whose only goal is to rip Mowgli to shreds]].

* The Kralahome in the animated version of ''WesternAnimation/{{The King and I}}'' is not a stern but genuinely loyal chancellor, but rather an EvilSorcerer who actively plots to overthrow the King.

* ''Disney/BigHero6'' is more "Adaptational JerkWithAHeartOfGold." In the comics, Hiro Takachiho is an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent. At the start of the [[Disney/BigHero6 animated movie]], Hiro [[AdaptationNameChange Hamada]] partakes in illegal bot-fights before his brother shows him around his school. There's also the issue of [[spoiler:trying to kill Callaghan]], though to be fair, [[YouKilledMyFather that was an extreme circumstance]].



* In a case of this happening to the hero to a degree, ''WesternAnimation/SupermanVsTheElite'' actually sees [[spoiler: Superman go through with lobotomizing Manchester Black and depowering the Elite. In the original comics, the Elite retained their powers and Supes merely gave Black a concussion.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainUnderpantsTheFirstEpicMovie'': In the ''Literature/CaptainUnderpants'' books, Professor Poopypants snapped when Harold and George make fun of his name. In the film, he's already evil-- his backstory reveals he snapped when (spoiler:the presenters at the World's Greatest Inventor ceremony were too busy laughing at his name to give him his well-deserved award]]. And while he gets annoyed when they make him the villain in one of their comics, he instead takes the idea of being a supervillain with stride.
