** A few early Gym Leaders gave Ash their badges for helping them out in different ways, even though he didn't officially defeat them (the Cerulean and Celadon Gym Battles were interrupted by Team Rocket and a fire respectively, sprinklers that gave Pikachu an edge, and the Haunter that Ash led back to the Saffron Gym snapped Sabrina out of her EmotionlessGirl /CreepyChild persona) starting with Lt. Surge, and later with Koga, no other leaders have made exceptions like these. The closest exception that was made was in Sinnoh when Ash and Maylene battled to a draw, where it was at the discretion of the Gym Leader as to whether the trainer deserved a badge.
*** This was lampshaded at the Cinnabar Gym, when Ash expects to receive his badge, but Blaine only intended to let him re-challenge him for it.

** The episode "Bad To The Bone" has Jessie try to catch Otoshi's Doduo with a Poke Ball despite the fact he already owns it. In later episodes, when a character tries to catch a Pokémon under the ownership of someone else already, the Ball refuses to work, so Jessie should've known she's wasting her time. But the ball was knocked away by Marowak's bone club, so we don't know what would've happened. Interestingly, this is averted in the Japanese CD drama based on [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie the first movie]], in which Giovanni steals a defeated trainer's Magmar.

** In the first episode, Pikachu's appearance was chubbier compared to later seasons. Perhaps all the battling and traveling made him lose weight?

** The series has the tendency to give Pokémon the abilty to use more than four attacks. Pikachu used more than four attacks in the original series, but never used more than four different attacks in Advance Generation onwards. Whenever he learns a new attack, he seems to forget an older one; his moveset being Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Iron Tail and Thunder/Volt Tackle/Electro Ball.

* The original ''Anime/DiGiCharat'' anime was primarily an advertisement for Gamers. Not only that, but while there was still ''some'' focus on cuteness (finger-puppet people, Puchiko's leitmotif), it was generally more funny than cute, and the opening theme was rather ethereal in nature, focusing on the girls' aspirations as idols. The people being mostly literal finger puppets was also phased out in the very next series, ''Panyo Panyo Di Gi Charat'', where most characters were human, with ''Di Gi Charat Nyo in turn featuring an even more diverse population that included anthropomorphic animals and objects.

** The Land of Waves Arc has much more realistic and 'gritty' feel than the main plot, the NonActionBigBad being a sharp suited shipping magnate trying to prevent a bridge being built to an island village so he can continue exploiting its inhabitants and the ninjas being mercenaries doing a job - in fact, it is the only storyline focusing on the ninjas' role as assassins. The technology base also seems to be closer to our world - there is a caterpillar-tracked crane shown in the building scenes, and one panel even shows a gun behind a shop counter.

This level of technology returns for the World War arc, which suddenly has groups using long range radios to transmit information.

** In the first half of the manga, the idea of there being more tailed beasts than the Kyuubi is never brought up and Shukaku is heavily indicated to be something a little different. This helps explain Naruto's treatment by the village who don't know what to do with a human containing a demon. ''Shippuden'' suddenly reveals there are eight other tailed beasts (including Shukaku) who have been sealed in people since the time of the First Hokage, with the Kyuubi being held by two other people in Konoha's history--the First Hokage's wife and [[spoiler: Naruto's mother]]. The treatment of hosts is seen to vary widely between the nations that have them as well. Shukaku is explained as not being recognized as a tailed beast because a previous host of his got so confused with him that people thought he was the host's angry spirit. The Hachibi burned through hosts fairly quickly until Killerbee, who was seen as a hero by his village. Naruto's treatment is especially unusual since the first host already knew, and told others in the village, that the way to control the demon was love. Treatment like Naruto and Gaara received is quite literally the ''worst'' way to go about things.

* In the first chapter of the ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' manga, banknotes are seen and the characters outright say that money has become useless. Later on, no more forms of currency are seen and the anime adaptation never even mentions money.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': The very first page introduces protagonist Guts having sex with a woman who turns out to be an Apostle... at which point he explodes her head with his ArmCannon mid-coitus. The problem with this scene is that Guts is later revealed to be a rape victim who HatesBeingTouched and has a rather severe aversion to sexuality of any kind ([[IfItsYouItsOkay with the exception of his girlfriend Casca]]). While there are a few theories as to why Guts would do that despite his characterization, most fans tend to simply ignore the scene in question as having not happened. It also helps that this scene has never been referenced again, neither in the manga or any animated adaptation.
