** In ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', Colress, while still a scientist in the employ of Team Plasma, does [[FriendlyEnemy encourage]] the player and even gives them a device needed to progress further in the game. He is involved with Team Plasma ForScience and is not particularly interested in their goals, expressing distaste for Ghetsis. After his defeat, he encourages the player to stop Ghetsis' plans. In ''Episode N'', Colress is a true MadScientist who experiments on Pokémon to the point of torture, uses mind control on the Pokémon in his introductory episode (including those of the main characters), and is more than willing to hurt Ash and his friends to prove his theories. He is also more appreciative of Ghetsis due to Plasma's "providing" increasingly more difficult "subjects" pushing the theories further. Colress in the game has a HeelFaceTurn, willingly disbands Team Plasma, and becomes TheAtoner after Ghetsis is defeated (which [[spoiler: his cameo in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' follows through on]]), while his anime counterpart is arrested by Looker. The anime counterpart does come up with the idea for a [[SpeaksFluentAnimal Pokémon translator]], but after he's arrested and in a way emphasising his BlueAndOrangeMorality.

[[spoiler: In '''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon'', he is something of a ReverseMole for Team Rainbow Rocket - while promotional materials suggested that he was part of their organization, he's actually working with the Aether Foundation to help send its members back to their own dimensions.]] The anime counterpart does come up with the idea for a [[SpeaksFluentAnimal Pokémon translator]], but after he's arrested and in a way emphasising his BlueAndOrangeMorality.

** Faba, in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', wasn't a good guy to begin with. He's a SmugSnake who believes himself to be more important than he actually is, [[ChildHater hates children]] (which he states upon losing), refuses to fight Team Skull to save a Slowpoke, and acts very condescending towards both Wicke and the player's character, but ultimately pulls a HeelFaceTurn in the original games, at least (though he sells out the Aether Foundation in favor of joining Team Rainbow Rocket in ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon''). Here, he's even worse, even going so far as to abduct Lillie and try to erase her memory for no reason other than to save his reputation.

** Kimblee, who had only shown up in a single manga panel when the anime caught up, ended up being a completely different person. The manga version turned out to be an AffablyEvil sociopath with [[MoralSociopathy a very odd (but very consistent) moral philosophy]], while the anime version became a MisanthropeSupreme and a StrawNihilist who just wanted to kill people because life was inherently meaningless.
** Even Hohenheim, the BigGood in the manga, became a RetiredMonster; instead of being [[UnwittingPawn tricked]] into helping Father turn the nation of Xerxes into a Philosopher's Stone, and only becoming aware of the plan once it was too late to stop it, the anime's backstory has him willingly helping Dante turn people into Philosopher's Stones to prolong their own lives.

* The ''Anime/AceAttorney'' anime, while keeping the same story as the games, turns Morgan Fey into even more of a villain than she was in the games. In the "Reunion, than Turnabout" case in the game, Morgan is partnered with Ini Miney, cooperating with her to get Maya arrested for murder, while Ini simply wants to kill Dr. Grey [[spoiler: to protect the secret that she is, in fact, Mimi Miney]]. However, in the anime, Ini doesn't want to kill Doctor Grey, she just wants to fake the channeling so he doesn't find out that secret. Morgan, however, comes up with the plan to kill Doctor Grey and frame Maya for it. When Ini refuses, Morgan threatens to [[spoiler: reveal Ini's secret identity.]]

** In the anime, Zamasu wants to murder his master Gowasu, steal Goku's body before killing him and his family, then travel to Future Trunks timeline to kill all the gods and mortals [[EvilIsPetty all because Goku defeated him in a sparring match]]. His reasons to do this is even more petty in the manga; He watched the match between Goku and Hit and becomes enraged that a mortal Saiyan like him managed to attain so much power.

** Boy, [[RuleOfThree Colress just has no luck in adaptations]], huh? This version, while closer to the original in terms of motives, is still outright villainous as he is completely apathetic both to Kyurem's suffering and to the entire population of Opelucid City, whom he decides to test the dragon's power on.

On the other hand, this ''was'' an event from the game, we just never saw it from Colress' POV, so it's entirely possible this was how he acted then and that [[CharacterDevelopment he only mellowed out later.]]

** Team Flare in the ''XY and Z'' arc are more sinister and dangerous than their game iterations. In particular, Lysandre's history with Professor Sycamore and his backstory in the games as the descendant of AZ's brother and a FallenHero are not touched on, and in the games Xerosic eventually pulls a postgame HeelFaceTurn under the influence of [[MoralityPet Emma]], a girl who befriends him. Lysandre is more than willing to lay waste to Lumiose City to accomplish his goals in the Team Flare Crisis arc; and Xerosic is not above [[WouldHurtAChild harming Clemont]] for the sake of science in his appearances, with him seeking vengeance against him for stopping his plans at Prism Tower.

** Technically a case of Dub-Induced Villainy, but the Customer Service rep of Nightmare Enterprises is depicted as a friendly businessman in the Japanese version. The dub, ''Kirby Right Back at Ya!'' depicts his counterpart the Salesguy as a CorruptCorporateExecutive, portrays his monster deals akin to a [[HonestJohnsDealership stereotypical used car salesman]] and is a condescending {{Jerkass}} towards Dedede. Both versions depict him as being in league with Nightmare, but the dub does away with the friendly aspects of his character that were present in the Japanese version.
