** It has been rumored for years that Kubo has always had problems with his editors - and that he might have had scuffles with ''the chief editor of the Weekly Shonen Jump'' as well. The problems not only weren't solved, but ultimately led to Bleach ads being pulled from WSJ, to changed storylines, and ultimately to [[CutShort the sudden cancellation of the manga as a whole]], with Kubo being given only ''five'' chapters to finish the story itself.

* Creator/StreamlinePictures suffered from this under distributor Creator/OrionPictures in [[CreatorKiller what turned out to be its waning years]]. Numerous cases of NoExportForYou and CutShort, most infamously involving ''Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater'', ''Anime/MegaZone23'', and ''Anime/PrincessKnight'', ensued.

** ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure Digimon: The Movie]]'' was created by combining three movies into one. Jeff Nimoy personally didn't care for the idea and would've preferred to only use the first two movies, however the runtime wasn't long enough.

** Rampant during production for ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', such meddling included:
*** The inclusion of Davis into the story and has lack of development as a character.
*** The loss of the Dark Ocean arc, and Dagomon as an antagonist. Both were introduced Creator/ChiakiKonaka, who later directed ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' (see below for Tamers-specific examples); he and several other writers threatened to break their contracts out of protest, but Toei was unwilling to allow so and gave them the rights to their own series in order to keep them on.
*** The entire season owes its existence to this, as the head writer of Adventure didn't want to create a sequel.
** Jeff Nimoy stated that ''Anime/DigimonTheMovie'' was supposed to just feature the first two movies, but higher ups demanded he add the third movie in, which he wanted to be shown as a TV special.
** Ryo Akiyama being included in ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' was the result of this, as Bandai insisted he be added to the story against Chiaki Konaka's wishes. Konaka [[WriterRevolt retaliated]] by intentionally minimizing the role Bandai wanted Ryo to play in the story. Konaka also originally wrote Juri's father as a Yakuza member, but Toei refused.

** 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 would ultimately defeat Gary, 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.

* ''Manga/{{Gunnm}}'' / ''[[Manga/{{Gunnm}} Battle Angel Alita]]'': The author was working on a special celebration chapter -- chapter 100 -- which would be the headliner for the phonebook sized ''Ultra Jump'' magazine in Japan. It was around this time that his publisher's legal department approached him with censorship demands for the reprints, [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-06-28/battle-angel-alita/last-order-manga-put-on-hiatus demanding he change a line]] using the word "crazy" as it "may offend people with incurable mental disorders." The suggested changes were "mad" or "angry" instead. He caved in because they also cited a part of his contract stating that if he missed the deadline on chapter 100, they would prohibit all future reprints of ''Gunnm'', effectively ending his career. He later regretted it, especially when he discovered they had made similar changes without his knowledge. He approached them with an ultimatum -- either the legal team apologize to him for overstepping their bounds and [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-08-18/battle-angel-alita/gunnm/lo-manga-return-planned recall the edited versions]], or he'd switch to a different publisher. They didn't, so [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-02-08/battle-angel-alita/gunnm/lo-manga-to-resume-in-march he did.]]

** Creator/KenAkamatsu wanted to try something new and do a {{Shounen}} series, but the executives wanted to capitalize on the success of ''Manga/LoveHina'' with another UnwantedHarem series. As a result, ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' starts out like an UnwantedHarem, but starts adding {{Shounen}} elements around volume 3, which [[GenreShift increase in frequency]] until it becomes a {{Shounen}} series with some UnwantedHarem and FanService elements still hanging around.
