* More in the manga-to-anime shift: ''GetBackers''? More boobs and more blood. Notably, Kazuki comes across as ''much'' more dangerous: rather than just tying people up and maybe a few bloodless slashes, he can be seen severing limbs and sewing people's eyes, mouths, and ears shut, and ''then'' tying them up. And leaving them there. For about a week. Yeah.

** When introducing Zakuro/Renee, they removed the cross on her necklace and whip, which signified that she was a JapaneseChristian. Fearing any religious controversies, they removed the horizontal part of the cross.

*** When abovementioned [[spoiler:Belle-Mère]] confronts [[spoiler:Arlong]], her rifle is replaced with a shovel (which, ironically makes it worse when you realize, that murdering someone with a shovel is much more gruesome, than doing it with a gun).

** The "classic dub" of Z also had a major character shift in the form of Goku, who was written in characterisation to be a selfless paragon of justice ala Superman. The more accurate characterisation of Goku is of a somewhat selfish IdiotHero who is good-natured and does have a moral code and sense of justice but is primarily driven either by a desire to fight strong opponents or [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge smash anyone who has hurt/killed his friends into a fine red paste]]. This pretty much speaks volumes of what kind of tone Saban wanted out of the dub. They did pretty much the same thing for Bardock, who was the ''protagonist'' of his film, not a ''hero'' - if anything, he was a remorseless killer, and obviously Saban couldn't have that, so he was changed to a "reluctant killer" who was downplayed example of MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch.

** The very same episode had to be heavily edited before it was even allowed to air on Japanese television, removing almost all of its naughty bits (including the episode's main plot of Kamina wanting to see the girls naked), and turning it into a RecapEpisode. Both versions are available on the DVD.

Both versions are available on the DVD. The edited episode is the one that is currently streaming online, meaning Region 1 DVD buyers have to deal with Creator/{{Aniplex}} USA's high prices or resold copies of the out-of-print Creator/BandaiEntertainment release.

* One of the ''Manga/DeathNote'' intros is in English and features a lot of profanity. It is however incomprehensible to most English speakers due to both the accent and the metal tone of the song. The English subtitles for the opening had completely different lyrics instead of the proper ones.

** The subtitles to the "Fighting Dreamers" intro had altered lyrics. The song has the lyrics "(...)Drunken rider" in English. It however is accented so the dub passed it off as something else.

* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire: Season II'' at one point has a fight with an originally male (we think) {{Doppelganger}} that takes the form of the buxom succubus Kurumu and then flashes Tsukune to distract him when his SuperpoweredEvilSide takes over. The {{Doppelganger}} is bare-breasted in the original version, but in the American localization he inexplicably acquires a lace bra.

*** It's also difficult to claim that the change makes Yusei more {{Badass}}, seeing as how the laser that ''burns the marker onto Yusei's face'' in the Japanese version is just changed into a harmless spray for the English dub.

** In the episode where Sonic meets Helen, one character holds a wine bottle and starts pouring it. 4Kids painted a '''giant salami''' over it and cut out the shots of him pouring the drink.
