** In [[http://www.bogleech.com/halloween/hall12-spiders.html this]] article on Bogleech about how the author's article was so thoroughly changed (Most notably by adding a "kill all spiders" slant when, if you read the author's other work, you'll see he holds ''the exact opposite position'') that he ultimately disowned it.

* Creator/FPSRussia once wanted to show his faith in a piece of body armor by putting the armor on and ''[[TooDumbToLive having his buddy]] [[RecklessGunUsage shoot him]]''. In a shining example of TropesAreNotBad, his agent, Youtube, his buddy, and even his fans all vetoed the idea.

* Due to a syndicate merger, two rival shows focusing on mostly 1970s and 1980s-era CountryMusic (''Country Gold with Rowdy Yates'' and ''Rick Jackson's Country Hall of Fame'') had this happen in 2012. ''Country Gold'' replaced host Rowdy Yates with Music/{{Alabama}} lead singer Randy Owen, while ''Country Hall of Fame'' was ended entirely. The Randy Owen era was widely criticized due to his sleepy hosting style and constant ass-kissing of fellow country stars, as opposed to Rowdy's more boisterous delivery and constant sharing of interesting facts pertaining to the artists or the industry. Once Yates and Jackson got the rights back to their old formats, they both partnered with other syndicates to create new shows identical to their old ones (''The Original Country Gold'' and ''Rick Jackson's Country Classics''). As a result, many affiliates stuck with Owen's show switched back to Yates's and/or Jackson's new shows. Owen's ''Country Gold'' declined so far that many questioned whether it was still on the air, until Westwood One announced in March 2016 that they would be replacing him with Canadian country singer Terri Clark and focusing more on songs from TheNineties.

* Chapter 25 of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has the AuthorAvatar arguing with [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Execu Tive Meddling], who tries to sway him into trying different things into the story he doesn't really want to. When the guy tries to argue, the author threatens him with his writing tool, a ''[[ChainsawGood chainsaw]]''.

** Another example related to Toonami comes in regards to the Gundam series they aired - after the surprisingly popular ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' finished it's run, the staff at Toonami went to Sunrise to get another Gundam show (reportedly, they had ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'' and/or ''Anime/TurnAGundam'' in mind). However, Sunrise insisted that Toonami air the original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''...which ended up bombing in ratings. Later, Sunrise made Toonami play ''Anime/SDGundamForce'' for the same reason, despite Toonami's staff not wanting to (although the latter happened around the time that Cartoon Network started to take control of Toonami's program block).

* When marketing ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 3rd Edition'', the designers created a number of "iconic" characters to show up in artwork, and made a deliberate effort to avert HumansAreWhite (the iconic monk was Ember, a black woman, one of the iconic wizards was Naull, an Asian woman, etc). Executives pressured them to create a white human male fighter, even though they'd already created an iconic fighter in the form of Tordek the dwarf. The designers attempted to make him AmbiguouslyBrown instead, but this didn't work, and Regdar became [[WolverinePublicity easily the most commonly-featured character in artwork and promotions.]] They were [[WriterRevolt so disgusted at this]] that they made it something of a RunningGag [[TheyKilledKennyAgain to kill off Regdar whenever they could get away with it.]]

* In an example of ''distributor'' meddling, Upper Deck Entertainment pressured Konami into letting them rearrange the rarities, severely alter the construction of the Structure Decks brought over, and create their own cards for the newest ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' collectible card game sets. This has had the end effect of widening rifts between Japanese and Western versions of the game, and eventually led to Konami taking the game back.
