** Averted by ''Theatre/TroilusAndCressida''. Not even Shakespeare can beat ''Literature/TheIliad''.

** Averted by ''Theatre/TroilusAndCressida''. Not even Shakespeare can beat ''Literature/TheIliad''. He ''did'' largely displace [[Creator/GeoffreyChaucer Chaucer's]] ''Troilus and Criseyde'', though.

* The original release of ''VideoGame/CrimzonClover'', later given an UpdatedRerelease on the [=NESiCAxLive=] arcade content distribution platform and on Windows as ''Crimzon Clover WORLD IGNITION'', is hardly played anymore. First, as a Japanese ''doujinshi'' product that was released in physical format, [[KeepCirculatingThetapes it's very hard to find copies of it nowadays]]; ''WORLD IGNITION'' is readily available on Steam and GOG for a comparatively reasonable price (i.e. not marked up by doujin game resellers). Second, ''WORLD IGNITION'' is largely seen as a superior product anyway, due to the extra modes, ships, vertical orientation support, and 2-player support.

* To many people born in communist countries, ''[[TheWizardOfOz Oz]]'' wasn't known, but instead [[Literature/TalesOfTheMagicLand the adaptions]] by Alexander Volkov (making a non-canonical character, Urfin Jus, the most popular one).

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' is based on a comic book called ''M. Rex''. The comic only lasted two issues and never really took off, meaning when the show first aired, most had assumed it was an original work rather than an adaptation.

* ''Literature/GulliversTravels'': Most people are more familiar with the watered down adaptations of the story that [[DisneyFication reinterpret it as a childrens fairy tale]] (such as the 1939 [[Creator/FleischerStudios Max Fleischer]] [[WesternAnimation/GulliversTravels animated adaptation]] and the [[Film/GulliversTravels2010 Jack Black live action comedy]]) than the original Creator/JonathanSwift book. Many people aren't even aware that the famous Lilliput voyage that most adaptations focus on only makes up the first 50 pages of the story, that there are three more voyages, and that the original story was a hard edged {{Satire}} and [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids most definitely]] '''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids not]]''' [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids a childrens book.]]

** Indeed, that first incarnation of Fleetwood Mac, a blues-rock band responsible for a respectable list of hit singles in TheSixties and early seventies, has itself been rendered obscure by the later supergroup lineup whose music bears practically no resemblence or continuity to what it was in the beginning. Fans of the original band can get acid that hit tracks like ''Black Magic Woman, Oh Well, Green Manalishi'' and ''Albatross'' - all big hits - [[UnPerson never appear on ''Best of Fleetwood Mac'' compilations]].
