** 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.

* Parodied in-universe in the second episode of ''Mangirl!'' Hana proposes lots of ridiculous and cliched modifications to the author's manga...but only after the author asks if she wants to change the story. The others draw the line at Hana's suggestion to name the heroine after her.

*** For the dub, the iconic salute "Sieg Zeon" was changed to the more generic "Hail Zeon". All other references to the Nazis or Hitler were also covered with references to fascism instead. Averted with ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'' (Particularly episode 4), which used the former anyway.

* ''Manga/DoubleArts'': The manga was ended by ''Magazine/ShonenJump'' because it was hated by younger readers. A retool was attempted to make it into a more fighting-based series, but it didn't pan out. * ''Manga/DragonBall'': The reason the Cell arc in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' kept constantly changing villains was because Creator/AkiraToriyama's then current and his previous editor kept telling him that the villains he chose weren't good enough. This caused Toriyama to either shoehorn new villains in the arc or create new designs for the existing villains.

*** The {{Dub Name Change}}s were mandated by the bigwigs at Sunrise and had nothing to do with Bandai America. This has carried on for years, as any time Domon appears in a video game like ''DynastyWarriorsGundam'', it'll be called "Burning Gundam" instead of "God Gundam".

** Creator/{{Sunrise}} initially had little to no faith in the show because of director Goro Taniguchi[[note]]Reports variously blaming his being relatively new and untested or his perfectionism[[/note]], giving him 25 episodes rather than the originally requested 50 and severely limiting the staff's resources, forcing them to piggy-back off of other Sunrise shows being made at the same time. After it became a runaway success, Sunrise gave the staff more leeway, but still interfered in other ways.

** ''Codename: Sailor V'' was meant to be a 1 shot comic that became popular and was continued. When Toei got wind of it and wanted to make it into an OVA, Takeuchi was asked to expand it into a team format. Sailor Moon was soon created and V was made into a member of her team under the name Sailor Venus. Due to Moon's quick popularity, the OVA starring Sailor V was never made and her series was wrapped up after Sailor Moon's despite being much shorter.

* ''Manga/SkipBeat'': The author wanted a minor character to be a middle-aged man, since the character was a successful director and therefore logically should be of a respectable age. The editor said no, and the character ended up about 30.

** In the later prints of the manga, Takeuchi added some {{Yonkoma}} at the end of every volume, explaining how she came with some of the ideas that made it into the final version, some of them are about how [[WhatCouldHaveBeen she originally intended things to be drastically different]] until her editor, Osa-P, told her to do some changes. For example, the manga was going to be even DarkerAndEdgier than it is, compared to the [[LighterAndSofter Anime adaptation]], as she planed to [[KillEmAll get the Sailor Senshi killed]] [[KilledOffForReal permanently]] at the end of the first act, including an early and graphic death for Sailor Mercury. Also, Sailor Mercury was going to be an android or a cyborg, something that was later used for Hotaru/Sailor Saturn.
