** ''Super'' also messes around with Goku's personality, at times making him more like his ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' counterpart in regards to his BloodKnight tendencies. He displays a childlike fixation on fighting, challenge anyone and everyone up to the literal King of Everything, and never seems to consider whether it's appropriate or what the consequences of his actions might be. In fact, a good portion of the fandom blames him for the events of the Future Trunks Saga, since [[spoiler:his challenging Zamasu to a fight is what drove the latter to decide that all mortals were too dangerous and needed to be wiped out.]] He only once displays anything resembling the cold, focused anger he demonstrated with Freeza, and that comes when [[spoiler:Goku Black says that he killed his universe's versions of Chi-Chi and Goten after stealing Goku's body.]]

** ''Dragonball Super'': Goku's intelligence has been flanderized to the point he seems even less mature than the child he was at the start of Dragonball. He claps and wiggles his way towards powerful opponents, seems incapable of considering anything resembling consequence and abandons his friends and or endangers their lives for a quick fight or chance to train. Gone is the Goku who squared off in a deathly chill against Freeza. In Super he'd be more liable to clap and duckwalk at him wanting to fight.

* 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 desire to bury the past, while the anime version of 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 anime.

** In the manga, Natsumi was a Tsundere JerkWithAHeartOfGold. In the anime, she's a racist JerkWithAHeartOfJerk.
** Momoka's attempts to get Fuyuki to notice her are taken UpToEleven in the anime, as she even uses ''spies'' to see what he's doing.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' - By mid-Johto many recurring characters are little more than walking collections of running gags, with Brock having his CasanovaWannabe aspect overshadowing his wisecracking and being a BigBrotherMentor to Ash, and the Team Rocket trio's comedy overshadowing their competence.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' - By mid-Johto many recurring characters are little more than walking collections of running gags, with Brock Takeshi/Brock having his CasanovaWannabe aspect overshadowing his wisecracking and being a BigBrotherMentor to Ash, Satoshi/Ash, and the Team Rocket trio's comedy overshadowing their competence.



** Ash, the main character, is noteworthy in that he started out as an IdiotHero mainly due to his ''immaturity'' rather than him being an actual idiot. As he's matured throughout the show, but the writers [[NotAllowedToGrowUp still want to keep his idiot traits]], his IdiotHero status is due to him being honestly mentally challenged. His ObliviousToLove trait is one of the most noteworthy: compare his early release of Butterfree because he knew full well it wanted to mate with a female and make babies to a more recent encounter with a Cottonee with the same problem, whom Ash thinks just wants to "get a best buddy".

*** His idiot traits were taken UpToEleven in ''Best Wishes'', but significantly toned down in ''XY''. The only major flaw of his character that retained from his flanderization is him being ObliviousToLove.

* 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.

** 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.]]

** 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).
