* Char Aznable from the original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' and its sequels certainly had his faults (up to and including [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack that time he tried to blow up the Earth]]), but ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin'' manages to up the ante even further by making him a freakin' ''[[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil rapist]]''.

*** Rather than making Garma a villain, ''Origin'' takes away his positive traits. In the anime he was shown to be a good person in general, being AFatherToHisMen, having a fiancée who loved him, was legitimately friends with Char (hence his shock when Char betrays him), and wants very much to prove that he deserves his command post and didn't just get promoted because [[{{Nepotism}} his father is Zeon's leader]]. In ''Origin'', he's the exact opposite of all this: a whiny SpoiledBrat who got jealous over Char's promotion, threw a literal stompy-foot temper tantrum to Daddy, got promoted (mainly because Degwin wanted him to shut up), and immediately went to Char to brag; on top of that, once he's in command he hurls [[WeHaveReserves wave after wave of his men into battle]] to earn himself glory.

* To a lesser extent, King Dedede of ''Anime/KirbyOfTheStars'' (pictured). While still rarely exceeding a petty comedic {{Jerkass}}, his anime counterpart has far fewer [[PetTheDog benevolent moments]] than that of the [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} original games]] and usually plays the main antagonist of each episode. In the games, Dedede is more greedy and selfish than outright ''evil'' - when Kirby is up against a truly [[KnightOfCerebus dangerous]] villain like Zero or Nightmare, Dedede usually ends up joining forces with him to defeat it, and sometimes (such as in ''[[VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand Kirby's Return to Dream Land]]'') genuinely tries to help Kirby out and acts in defense of Dream Land. In ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'', he even saves Kirby from Sectoria with no prompting. Even when he's an antagonist, he's more often than not [[WellIntentionedExtremist misguided]] or [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]]. For his part, especially in the more recent games, Kirby seems to view Dedede as a friend.

* In a similar but lesser manner, Shadow the Hedgehog in the ''SonicX'' anime. In the games, Shadow started off a vengeful weapon ready to destroy Earth's population in honor of his murdered friend. Throughout his story however, he is portrayed with a palpable sense of doubt and emotional conflict, before ultimately pulling a full HeelFaceTurn two games later. In the anime, he roughly follows his games counterpart's story, but maintains his more sinister neutral alliance and is TheUnfettered to the highest scale (at least once perfectly willing to kill a child in cold blood, along with anyone who defended her, if it meant stopping a villain).

** Team Flare in the ''XY and Z'' arc of the anime are portrayed similarly to their counterparts in ''Special.'' 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.

* 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.]]

* ''Manga/TheLegendOfZelda''
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina Of Time]]'', Sheik is helping Link in his quest to defeat Ganondorf. In the manga adaptation, he's soon revealed to be [[TheMole secretly working for Ganondorf]]. [[spoiler:This is subverted as, just like the game, Sheik is actually Zelda and a DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent]].
** The Happy Mask Salesman from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' gives the player some creepy vibes but genuinely wants to retreve the titular mask before it destroys Termina. In the manga adaptation he's heavily implied to be behind the events of the story.
