** There exist a plethora of baseless rumours claiming that Toriyama intended to end the manga at certain points, such as the Freeza or Cell saga. However, there is only one point at which he had intended to finish the manga but was encouraged to continue, that being shortly after the release of the tenth volume. Though he did not have a clear ending in mind by then, Toriyama decided to write on significantly longer than he would have if not for encouragement due to the manga's quickly skyrocketing popularity.

** Creator/TakeshiShudo's original intention for the series was one that could be [[DoingItForTheArt enjoyed by both children and adults]]. However, CreativeDifferences with the show's staff saw him forced to include to implement the StrictlyFormula elements which have largely characterized the show. Shudo's blogs reveal the direction he originally had in mind for the series, namely that Ash and Gary's rivalry would be an ongoing StoryArc, and the finale would involve a conflict between humans and Pokémon -- but that meddling from the staff meant the show ended up going on far longer than he'd intended.
*** On a lesser note, [[http://dogasu.bulbagarden.net/movies/pm_lord_unknown_tower_entei/lord_unknown_tower_entei_mythical_third_movie.html his original idea]] for the third movie (which involved a reanimated TyrannosaurusRex fossil, as well as the mystery of real-world animals in relation to Pokémon) was rejected by the staff because they thought it lacked success potential.

** An inversion occured prior to the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai arc; Toriyama threatened his editor that if [[KidHero Goku]] didn't grow up into an adult, then he couldn't continue with serialization. The editor responded with, "You can have the protagonist grow up, just don't scare me like that!"
** The reason the Cell arc kept constantly changing villains (from Androids 19 and 20, to 17 and 18, before settling with Cell) was because of an unusual variant of this. Creator/AkiraToriyama's former editor kept telling him that the villains he chose weren't good enough; Toriyama seemingly had no real obligation to listen, but did so anyway for some reason.
*** A straighter version occured with Cell's forms; his first "Imperfect" form was initially his only one, but Toriyama's ''current'' editor thought he looked ugly, suggesting he transform like previous BigBad Frieza. The following Semi-Perfect form (which [[CreatorsFavorite Toriyama himself liked the most]]) was meant to have a larger role, but the editor thought he looked like "a moron", and pressured him into having Cell achieve his Perfect form much sooner than planned.

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

** The GS Ball was planned to have contained a Celebi, which would follow the cast and have a major arc centered around it. However, the higher-ups decided that Celebi would be the star of ''Anime/Pokemon4Ever'' and the arc, now seen as redundant, [[AbortedArc ended with the GS Ball remaining with Kurt in hopes that viewers would forget it]].
