* The Tears For Fears song "Mad World" is pretty much the textbook music example of this trope. The much slower, more melancholic cover version by Gary Jules is so monumentally popular that the original song is often mistaken to be the cover, with Gary Jules fans attacking the band for "ruining the song" despite them being responsible for its existence in the first place.

*** Also, the original NES release was a MikeTyson property. As he was not only the final boss, but his name shared the title. For whatever reasons (mainly, their contract ended) subsequent virtual console releases had him replaced completely.

*** Also, the original NES release was a MikeTyson property. As featured Mike Tyson heavily, as he was not only the final boss, boss but his name shared was part of the title. For whatever reasons (mainly, title, so many people seem to think that the entire series is about him. Due to their contract ended) ending and Tyson losing the title, the 1990 NES re-release and subsequent virtual console Virtual Console releases had him replaced completely.

* When googling ''Anime/AstroBoy'', you would get more results on the [[WesternAnimation/AstroBoy 2009 film]] than the 2003 anime, much less the [[LighterAndSofter 1960's version]] or the [[DarkerAndEdgier 1980's version]]. And that's without going into any of the short anime films.

** This also happens with the ''characters'' as well; in the novels, [[RedHeadedHeroine Lina]] and [[IdiotHero Gourry]] are the only protagonists; the chimera [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Zelgadis]] and the princess [[GenkiGirl Amelia]] were their allies for the first eight novels, and they were replaced by treasure hunters [[HotBlooded Luke]] and [[MoralityChain Millina]] for the remaining seven. However, both Zelgadis and Amelia became extremely popular, and when newer anime seasons and manga were made, they were in them, quintessentially making the "Slayers" a four-man band instead of a duo. Very few fans outside of Japan know who Luke and Millina are, especially given that the AlternateContinuity manga ''The Hourglass of Falces'' has all six heroes together.

* The 1985 series ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' is a CutAndPasteTranslation of ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', ''Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross'', and ''Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada''. Despite modern anime fans bashing the redundant narration and clumsy translation, ''Robotech'' continues to surpass the popularity of even ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' in the USA, which was the only ''popular'' anime of the three in Japan; ''Southern Cross'' was a total flop, and ''Mospeada'' is largely forgotten. However, original ''Macross'' is still going strong with its various prequels and sequels; ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' has become a classic in its own right, and ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' was one of the most successful anime series of the late [=2000s=]. Even ADV's recent attempt to market the original ''SDF Macross'' series on DVD (including a non-''Robotech'' dub) failed due to lack of interest, probably because unlike ''Robotech'', it was never shown on American TV, and the animation is too old for younger audiences.
