** In ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2SecretOfTheOoze'' and the 1987 series, Rahzar was a villain, but otherwise a very unintelligent one and cared for his partner, Tokka. The 2012 version, formerly the mutant Dog Pound (aka Chris Bradford), he's intelligent and a willing servant of the Shredder who takes pleasure at harming others and doesn't have a single concern for any of his teammates.
** 2003's Mozar was a Triceraton who believed EvenEvilHasStandards, while his Mirage version existed in text only. 2012's Mozar is one of the BigBadEnsemble in season 4 of 2012's Turtles, violent and willing to destroy his minions and planets to retrieve a black hole generator.

* Colossus and Gambit were members of Comicbook/{{Magneto}}'s Acolytes in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', despite being actual members of the X-Men in the comics. They eventually pulled a HeelFaceTurn and were seen as part of the team in the epilogue.

*** The tie-in film ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMysteryOfTheBatwoman'' presents Batwoman was a reckless vigilante who doesn't have qualms about lethal force, which is why DC insisted that they didn't use Kathy Kane. This didn't stop the makers from homaging her via naming one of the suspects "Kathy Duquesne". [[spoiler: Nor making that Kathy [[CollectiveIdentity one of the Batwomen]].]]

** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': Klarion the Witch Boy, whose portrayal in the comics generally ranges from an annoying troublemaker (Creator/JackKirby's version) to a well-meaning anti-hero (Creator/GrantMorrison's version), is clearly evil when he appears in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', stealing control of Etrigan from Jason Blood, tearing Gotham apart simply for fun, and using potential lethal spells on Batman when the hero tries to stop him. He finally crosses the MoralEventHorizon by telling Etrigan to kill Blood (who is aging at an accelerated rate and nearly helpless due to the Demon being separated from him).

** In addition, [[BigBad Mumm-Ra]] is portrayed as a much more malevolent character than he was in the [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats1985 original series]]. In the former, his actions merely amounted to attacking the [=ThunderCats=] from time to time. But in the new series, his first major crime involves crossing the MoralEventHorizon by [[spoiler:murdering Lion-O's father while disguised as Panthro.]] And he only gets MUCH worse from there.

** In the games and most cartoon adaptations, Dr "Eggman" Robotnik is villainous, but with a highly [[AffablyEvil affable]] and [[LaughablyEvil clownish demeanor]], and in some cases leans into AntiVillain territory. Robotnik of ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' and to a lesser extent ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'', however, is a monstrous (and far less humorous) dictator that not only has taken over most of the planet but thrives almost lustfully on having any remaining civilians [[BodyHorror painfully]] [[UnwillingRoboticisation roboticized]]. This depiction is drifted in and out for both comic adaptations (although they refer to his more petty, comical personality a lot more).

** In the comics and most adaptations, Curt Connors is a sympathetic character and generally [[NiceGuy good-natured]] when he isn't [[SuperpoweredEvilSide the Lizard]]. In ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheNewAnimatedSeries'', he is a much more bitter and unpleasant character even before his transformation.

* Downplayed with Cornelia from ''WesternAnimation/{{Witch}}''. In the cartoon she's presented as more of a straight AlphaBitch than the LovableAlphaBitch she is in the comics. She's ruder and generally more aggressive. In the comics she is a BullyHunter but in the cartoon, prior to her CharacterDevelopment, she was a bully herself.

* Anyone familiar with Link, the hero of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', knows he's consistently a brave, humble, all around heroic person who saves the land of Hyrule and its princess without expecting anything in return. People familiar with Link now will probably be surprised that in the ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda'' cartoon that came after the NES games, he's the complete opposite. This Link was lazy, self-centered, whiny and is only motivated by getting Zelda to kiss him.
