** In general, this is widely believed to be the reason why the ''Gundam'' boom faded in the US - ''Wing'' was a hit on Creator/{{Toonami}}, so after ''Wing'' finished airing, Toonami went to Sunrise to ask for another Gundam series, eying the aforementioned ''X'' and ''Anime/TurnAGundam''. However, Sunrise forced them to air 0079...which, on top of having a widely different premise from ''Wing'', also had extremely dated animation. Later, Sunrise forced Toonami to air ''Anime/SDGundamForce''...despite the block not wanting to (the staff at Toonami ended up being VindicatedByHistory on this one, because the show did not even air all of it's episodes on the block).

Because of this, as well as Bandai losing favor with toy stores from having to restock merchandise, by the time ''SEED'' was put on the block, Gundam was pretty much given the FridayNightDeathSlot on Toonami. Later, Sunrise forced Toonami to air ''Anime/SDGundamForce''...despite the block not wanting to (the staff at Toonami ended up being VindicatedByHistory on this one, because the show did not even air all of it's episodes on the block).

*** What makes this example particularly weird is that Sunrise later let Toonami air ''G Gundam'' - one has to wonder why Sunrise didn't just make Toonami air that after ''Wing'' instead of the original.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'': The reason the Cell arc in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' kept constantly changing villains was because Creator/AkiraToriyama's then current and previous editors kept telling him that the villains he chose weren't good enough. This caused Toriyama to shoehorn new villains in the arc. This also caused him to create new designs for Cell later on.
** In ''Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters'', FUNimation was forced by Toei to replace the audio featuring Creator/TeamFourStar in the joke Mr. Satan vs. Cell movie after an audio provided by Nick Landis (AKA Lanipator) in Toonami's promo was played. Fans were not amused by this.

** Takeuchi herself invoked executive meddling when it came to the creation of the all new English dub from Creator/VizMedia. Due to her dislike on how the previous dubs were handled, she had to personally approve the new voice cast in order for the project to be given the final greenlight.

** When the fourth film was released to DVD, it carried with it a message from Kubo explaining that crediting him with the film was inaccurate. The filmmakers rewrote the script he'd provided at the last minute, with the end product being almost nothing like the original.

** Kubo's plan for the manga's Final Arc called for it to run at least as long as the 26-volume Arrancar Arc. However, Shueisha decided to cancel the whole series when Kubo was 19 volumes into the Final Arc -- and gave him only 6 weeks' notice, less than 1/10th of the time he'd planned on to wrap the story up. This lead to an extremely rushed finale and epilogue that [[LeftHanging left most plot threads hanging]].

** Kubo admitted that he had never planned for the Arrancar Arc to go on as long as it did. The Arrancars unexpectedly became popular with the fans, so the editors wanted more time devoted to them. Due to each character having to be given ADayInTheLimelight, the arc stretched on for ''years''.
