* Ciel Phantomhive in ''Manga/BlackButler'' season 2. They seem to only focus on his bad parts, making him seem much more evil. They also made him a lot more dependent on Sebastian than in the first season, making him more of a damsel in distress when he could have been capable of handling himself a little easier.

** Grell was given a much bigger role in the anime & had little character development or backstory for the animators to work from, so the character was fladerized right out of the box & made into a love-sick comic relief character, while the manga counterpart is significantly more serious & less romantic.

Added DiffLines:

** Elfman was never very subtle when it came to his love of manliness to begin with, but it's gotten to the point where when asked by the aforementioned Juvia what a good gift for Gray would be, he suggests to ''give him a man.'' Not something manly, just ''a man.'''

* Kyubey as a ''straightforward'' villain of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion''. The original character was never straightforward, having an OrangeAndBlueMorality and [[NeverMyFault doesn't understand the main characters' delimma over their own downfalls]]. In the movie, it commits acts that are subjectively evil [[CardCarryingVillain and is proud]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech of them]]. Its downfall is [[ThisCannotBe typically villain-like]] and turns out laughable, [[spoiler: being pathetically dominated by PowerOfFriendship and out-gambit by the now-evil Homura Akemi.]]

* Kyubey In ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'', Seto Kaiba is solely focused on seeing and dueling Atem again to prove he's the strongest duelist with no care for anything else. The manga version of him had a rivalry with Jonouchi, a realization that he had to try and move on from his losses to become a stronger person, as well as a ''straightforward'' villain desire to bury the past, while the anime version of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion''. The original character was never straightforward, having an OrangeAndBlueMorality him acknowledges Yugi, not Yami Yugi, as the true King of Games. Mokuba is also wholly supportive of him, despite restraining his brother's crazier habits in the manga and [[NeverMyFault doesn't understand the main characters' delimma over their own downfalls]]. In the movie, it commits acts that are subjectively evil [[CardCarryingVillain and is proud]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech of them]].

** Chi-Chi in ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. Her HairTriggerTemper and EducationMama tendencies are turned UpToEleven to make her an overbearing [[MyBelovedSmother parent]] with severely SkewedPriorities.

** Chi-Chi in ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. Her HairTriggerTemper and EducationMama tendencies are turned UpToEleven to make her an overbearing [[MyBelovedSmother parent]] with severely SkewedPriorities. It comes to a head in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', where she almost steals her granddaughter Pan from Gohan simply because she's '''beyond''' insistent that Pan never become a martial artist (compare to her second son Goten, who she actually trained herself).

* Kirito from ''SwordArtOnline''. Although he was never a very deep character to begin with, the second arc of the anime took his redeemable qualities and insecurities and tossed them overboard, leaving only his MartyStu and GodModeSue traits behind.

** Pan from ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' suffers this as well. In the end of DBZ, she starts out as a well-meaning and sweet toddler. In DBGT, she is then a BrattyHalfPint with bad traits that were cranked UpToEleven.

** Team Rocket finally subverts this in ''Best Wishes'' as they {{Took a Level in Badass}} and lost their comedic quirks, [[BrokenBase breaking the base on yet another issue in the process.]] Though they eventually reverted back to their old selves.

** Team Rocket finally subverts this in ''Best Wishes'' as they {{Took a Level in Badass}} and lost their comedic quirks, [[BrokenBase breaking the base on yet another issue in the process.]] Though they eventually reverted back By the end of the series, and most of ''XY'', both cases of Flanderization were resolved, with the trio returning to their old selves. being [[NotSoHarmlessVillain comical but semi-threatening villains]].


Added DiffLines:

** The hero ensemble's tendencies to ''always'' fall for Team Rocket's trickery and {{Paper Thin Disguise}}s got [[GullibleLemmings more oblivious]] the more it was used. Ironically the first time it was used, Ash and the others didn't fall for it. Now the twerps ''never'' seem to show suspicion towards a whole load of similar trios made of a blue haired boy, a red headed girl and a talking Meowth. Meowth also managed to more and more easily convince the twerps [[HeelFaceMole he had turned good]] (since a prominent stint in ''Best Wishes'' the heroes are at least ''slightly'' more skeptical, though still eventually buy it).

* Manga/DGrayMan 's Cross Marian's suffered this treatment. First there was his treatment of Allen. In the manga, Allen received TrainingFromHell from him surely. But, the worst seems to be the debts Cross made him pay. The anime takes it UpToEleven with filler episode 27; My Mentor, general Cross. The episode has Cross selling Allen into slave labor. He's also seen, at one point, asking Allen to bring him man-eating animals, which ends with Allen almost being killed by a lion. In another scene, he has Allen pinned to a wall in an alley, taking his money-the scene giving off pimp vibes, complete with Allen asking Cross how long he was going to be forced to make money for him. None of these things were present in the manga. Canon-wise, he is, at worst a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, it seems. The anime however, seemed to want him in the JerkAss camp.

* Miyu in ''VampirePrincessMiyu''. In the OVA she was secretive, reserved, and hardly opened up to others except her bodyguard, Larva. However, she covered this up well by being charming, charismatic, friendly, and sometimes flirtatious to humans. In fact, it's not until later that you find out she has personal issues. In the television series, however, her former characteristics are taken UpToEleven to the point she almost becomes a ReiAyanamiExpy.

Added DiffLines:

** Brutally applied to Kuroko in the anime adaptation of ''Railgun.'' They played up her lesbian crush on Misaka to the point of [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnFemale attempted rape]], often violently hurting anyone who gets between them, and highly downplaying her personality besides such, other than in a few choice instances. Ironically, she's adapted better in ''Index'', which isn't even her show.
