* The {{anime}} boom in America took place well before the {{manga}} boom. As a result, more people were familiar with anime adaptations than the manga they were based on. For a while, the only place to talk about a manga series was the forum of the people translating the manga.
** Somewhat inverted in Latin America -- where the anime boom not only started before it did in the USA, but also happened as a consequence of the already growing anime fandom -- as many latino fans assumes that every anime is based on a manga when in fact anime based on novels, light novels, video games or being completely original ideas is just as common. As a result is not rare to find people who have read a manga thinking they were reading the original story in which the animated series is based upon when in fact it is the other way round.

* Generally, any anime that is based on a VisualNovel has the tendency to be this, Stateside or outside of UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}. Good examples would be ''VisualNovel/ToHeart'', ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', the three [[FanNickname Key Ani]] adaptations (''VisualNovel/{{Air}}'', ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'', and ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}''), ''VisualNovel/RumblingHearts'' and the three 5pb adaptations (''VisualNovel/ChaosHead'', ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'', and ''VisualNovel/RoboticsNotes''); few know these came from visual novels.
** Furthermore, the visual novel medium (a kind of non-linear, interactive, digital graphic novel, like a cross between a VideoGame and a {{novel}},) is itself largely unknown in the Western world, though it's garnered cult status thanks to games like ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' and ''VisualNovel/MyGirlfriendIsThePresident'' and the success of anime based on [=VNs=].
* A lot of anime that was based on written novels or stories, especially Japanese {{light novels}}, is often mistakenly thought of by the Western world as being original stories or based on manga. Some notable examples:

** The Squaresoft game(s) are sequels to the novel, while the movie is an adaptation.
** However, it's worth mentioning that one of the reasons it's relatively unknown outside of Japan is because [[NoExportForYou they weren't released outside of Japan for awhile]]. The 1995 novel was actually not published in English until ''2007''. It's pretty rare.



* ''ComicStrip/USAcres'' (A.K.A. ''Orson's Farm''), the middle segment on ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' was actually based on a short-lived comic strip Jim Davis did during the 1980s.

* ''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas'' has arguably begun to overshadow everything else in the ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' universe, including the actual newspaper strip, which is ironic because most of the special's dialogue is taken verbatim from the strip. For example, a lot of people think that Linus is supposed to have a lisp because his ''ACBC'' voice actor Christopher Shea happened to have one. This even carried over into the 1999 Broadway production of ''You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown''.

* ''WesternAnimation/AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes'' the movies have almost no diffusion in some regions like Latin America and some parts of Europe whilst the show had a broad syndication in a lot of public channels as Saturday morning cartoon. Thus whilst the existence of the movies is almost only known for cinema history buffs or BMovie geeks, the show is almost as famous as HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse or any other Saturday morning cartoon. A lot of people still to this day might have a surprise to know that there were live action movies before.

* A lot of people might be surprise to know that ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' was actually based on the candy brand the Gummi Bears and not the other way around. The company aproached Disney and requested a kid's show as ProductPlacement, thing is Disney did such a great work with a very creative and original series (and InNameOnly as other that the words "gummi" and "bear" has nothing to do with the candy) that became very popular among children that most people nowadays would think in the show first and the candy later.

*** A very localized ''Turtles'' example: Creator/RogerEbert, in his reviews of the original two ''Turtles'' movies, refers to the Turtles as being from a Nintendo game with no mention of the comics and TV series that pre-dated the NES video game. This confusion likely stems from his review of ''Film/TheWizard'', a movie that references (well, okay, let's face it, advertises) the NES ''Turtles'' game. This was likely the only exposure Ebert had to the Turtles before seeing the movie.

* In this day and age, far more people are aware of the 1980 ''Film/FlashGordon'' movie, or the [[Series/FlashGordon 2007 TV series]], or even the ''[[Film/FlashGordonSerial 1930s serials]]'' than are aware that it was a [[ComicStrip/FlashGordon daily newspaper comic]] that ran for nearly 70 years.

* {{MTV}} had a short-lived concert series in the mid-2000s in which two artists would mash up their songs, appropriately called ''MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups''. Probably the best known of these was the Music/JayZ/Music/LinkinPark collaboration, the concert recording of which was marketed as "Collision Course". Tune to any radio station that plays music from that decade, and you're probably more likely to hear that CD's hit single "Numb/Encore" than ''either'' of its component songs (the former coming from Linkin Park's ''Music/{{Meteora}}'', the latter from Jay-Z's ''The Black Album''.
