* ''Anime/WhenMarnieWasThere'' was a children's book before it became a film. Discussions of it are near exclusively about the film. * ''Literature/TheGirlWhoRunsThroughTime'' was a very popular 1966 novel by Creator/YasutakaTsutsui, adapted into two live action films (1983 and 1997), a 5 episode TV series (1994), a 2002 TV film, and a 2004 manga title (''A Girl Who Cut Through Time''). None of them received wide distribution in the west. They've been displaced by an anime adaptation (which is [[StealthSequel actually more of a loose sequel]]) named ''Anime/TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughTime''.

* ''Literature/ArashiNoYoruNi'' was originally a children's book series. However, [[NoExportForYou the books haven't been translated into English]], so English speakers would be more familiar with the anime, which ''does'' have a quasi-official dub.

* ''Manga/UsagiDrop'''s anime is by far more popular than the manga. Any discussion of the manga will inevitably devolve into [[OvershadowedByControversy complaints]] about the infamous timeskip [[spoiler:where Rin is a teenager and ends up with her adopted father Daikichi]].

to:
* ''Anime/MonsterRancher'' is a non-VisualNovel example of a video game displaced by the anime adaptation. The anime is very different from the games, at that.

Added DiffLines:
* ''Anime/MonsterRancher'' is a non-VisualNovel example of a video game displaced by The ''Manga/WanderingSon'' anime manages to displace the manga despite the manga being released in English while the anime adaptation. [[NoExportForYou has not]]. * The ''Manga/SchoolLive'' anime introduced most fans to the series thanks to its premise of "ZombieApocalypse horror passing as a {{moe}} SchoolgirlSeries". Many fans are completely oblivious to the fact the anime is [[PragmaticAdaptation extremely different]] from the manga. Taroumaru is barely even a thing in the manga but he causes a lot of the anime's plot. * ''Manga/UsagiDrop'''s anime is by far more popular than the manga. Any discussion of the manga will inevitably devolve into [[OvershadowedByControversy complaints]] about the infamous timeskip [[spoiler:where Rin is a teenager and ends up with her adopted father Daikichi]].

Added DiffLines:
* ''Anime/MonsterRancher'' ''Animation/LeafieAHenIntoTheWild'' is based off a non-VisualNovel example of a video game displaced by the anime adaptation. Korean book. In English speaking countries this is virtually unknown thanks to NoExportForYou.

* It's hard to guess that ''VideoGame/{{Gungrave}}'', a 2003 crime drama with some sci-fi mixed in for good measure, originated as an adaptation of a lukewarmly received PS2 shooter. It's even harder to believe it after you find out about it, just because of how the action sequences in the show took a definite backseat to characterization and drama, and its overall heavy, depressing feel.

** More accurately, the success of the cartoon made it so that the five cartoon Titans (Robin, Comicbook/{{Cyborg}}, Comicbook/{{Starfire}}, Beast Boy, and Comicbook/{{Raven}}) ''are'' the Teen Titans as far as most of the public is concerned. The Teen Titans have been around since the 1960's and have had dozens of members, but good lucky finding many people who recognize any of them outside the five from the TV show. This has also created a situation where most subsequent adaptations or media appearances (such as ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueVsTeenTitans'') try to mimic the roster of the TV show in order to appeal to audiences who remember those heroes.

* While (one hopes) most people realize that Franchise/{{Batman}}'s sidekick Comicbook/{{Robin}} originates in comic books, many fans of the animated ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' don't realize that the rest of the show's main characters, the team and its headquarters, most of the villains, and many of the plotlines on the show, as well as its title, [[Comicbook/TeenTitans originated in comic books as well]]. The show's heavy [[{{Animesque}} anime-inspired style]] may play a role to this. As the series progresses, however, this becomes increasingly less likely. Several characters are implied to be sidekicks as well (most notably Speedy, Aqualad, and Kid Flash), and more noticeably the entire final season of the show relies heavily on Beast Boy's backstory. Lampshaded when people react with surprise when they find out Beast Boy's been a member of a team previously, and apparently has more experience as a hero than anyone but possibly Robin. Possibly.

* In the West, it used to be that if you mentioned ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' people would think of [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the iconic 2003 anime version]], which diverged significantly from the original's story. Nowadays though, a lot more people are aware of the original manga, thanks to it getting a genuinely faithful adaptation in ''Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood''.

Not new anymore.
* In the West, a few years ago if you told someone ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' they'd think of [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the iconic 2003 anime]]. Nowadays though, more people know of the manga thanks to the new anime, ''Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood''.
