** The reason the Cell arc in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' kept constantly changing villains was because Creator/AkiraToriyama's editor 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.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Sasuke was created because Masashi Kishimoto's editor told him that Naruto needed a [[TheRival rival]].

** When the manga was first adapted into an animated film in 1966, the film executives felt they needed a KidAppealCharacter. Thus, they took the {{Shapeshifting}} Cyborg 007/G.B. and transformed him from his mid-forties to a FormerChildStar and the second youngest of the cyborgs (with [[GooGooGodlike 001/Ivan]] remaining the youngest as an infant). Ishinomori disliked the change, but briefly incorporated it into a one-shot chapter released in the same year titled "The Man with the Expensive Castle", and in a special "Prologue" story (and rewrite of the team's origin) that he published in Weekly Shonen Magazine before the start of the ''Underground Empire of Yomi'' arc. The child form would briefly be referenced in the actual arc as a sort of SleepModeSize gag, but was otherwise phased out immediately. However, the child version of G.B. would persist in the the 1968 monochrome TV series.

** In the anime adaptation of ''Sailor Stars'', Toei changed the Sailor Starlights from [[WholesomeCrossdresser women who dress in drag]] to full-out [[GenderBender gender benders]] who are men in their civilian forms and become women when they transform. They also get ascended to main character status, while they stayed supporting characters in the manga. The ending was also changed rather drastically, with Chibichibi's role being completely re-written and Sailor Cosmos never appearing at all. Takeuchi was not pleased with the changes.

** 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. 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.
