** 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.

*** 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 was rejected by the staff because they thought it lacked success potential.

* ''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.

* 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.
