** In the games, Bark the Polar Bear is described as a GentleGiant with a loving heart, and Bean the Dynamite was never stated to have a particular alignment. The comic turned both characters into villains, likely a result of CriticalResearchFailure and their bios being only available in Japanese material.

** ''ComicBook/WackyRaceland'': A good chunk of the cast is portrayed this way compared to ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces''. For instance, Red Max in the original series was a [[FunnyForeigner bumbling, yet gentlemanly German pilot]]. In ''Raceland'', well...he's a [[AllGermansAreNazis Nazi]].

* In ''Literature/{{The Dark Tower}}'' novels, John Farson is an ambiguous figure who never appears on the page. He's responsible for the destruction of Gilead... but his numerous followers call him The Good Man, and for all we know he may have had legitimate grievances with the gunslingers. In the comics, we actually get to see him, and he's a psychopathic tyrant who decapitates prisoners to play baseball with their heads.

* The ComicBook/{{New 52}} version of [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Mr. Freeze]], who has been revised to be less of an AntiVillain. He's still out to cure his frozen wife Nora - but this is a lie. Nora was preserved long before Freeze was even born, he's just deluded himself into believing they're married as part of his obsession with cold.
** Of course, the antivillain version of Freeze [[CanonImmigrant in the first place was based off of his alternate portrayal]] in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. The original Freeze, from the Silver Age, lacked any such humanizing qualities, being an unrepentant villain who uses a cold theme.

** ComicBook/NickFury is self-serving and corrupt, willing to violate the Constitution and throw people under the bus to maintain his power.

----* A staple of [[DCComics DC Comics']] HannaBarberaBeyond line, since the franchise is basically [[DarkerAndEdgier grimmer takes]] on old HannaBarbera properties. To wit:
** ''ComicBook/ScoobyApocalypse'': Just like in the movies, the traditionally heroic Scrappy is a [[TheNapoleon little bully]].

* In ''Comicbook/TheFlash (Rebirth)'', Professor Zoom is delighted to learn that one of the differences between the history of this Flash and the one he's familiar with is [[spoiler: that Barry's future children, Don and Dawn, become villains because he was never there for them. In the previous continuity, they were the heroic Tornado Twins.]]

** More like "Adaptational {{Jerkass}}", but outside of [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan Peter Parker]], even most of the characters who are still heroes got this, as they're either jackasses, psychotic, or (more often) both. ComicBook/CaptainAmerica is a good example, as he's noticeably more rude and bigoted than his "classic" counterpart, with lots of DeliberateValuesDissonance.

** ComicBook/{{Providence}} averts this in general for most of the Lovecraft characters in the story. It makes an exception however for [[spoiler:Ronald Pitman, the CaptainErsatz of Pickman from ''Pickman's Model''. Nothing in the comic suggests as Moore's story does, that Pitman is a SerialKiller and MadArtist]].
