** 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''.

* Generally, any anime that is based on a {{visual novel}} 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/KimigaNozomuEien'' and the three 5pb adaptations (''VisualNovel/ChaosHead'', ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'', and ''VisualNovel/RoboticsNotes''); few know these came from visual novels.

* Quite a few western fans of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' discovered the [[StupidStatementDanceMix music remix videos]] before learning of the original series of BulletHell games.

Added DiffLines:
* Quite a few western fans Works subject to NoExportForYou sometimes end up in the odd position of being displaced by their own {{Fanworks}}, due to the latter being more accessible outside their country of origin. ** ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' discovered is a notable case: many people learn of the [[StupidStatementDanceMix music remix videos]] before learning series through translations of {{Fan Vid}}s on Youtube, but trying to look up the original series work on Youtube will mostly throw up videos of intimidating BulletHell games.gameplay with poor art, which discourages viewers from investigating further. While BulletHell shooters form the core of the ''Touhou'' franchise, the majority of its installments are not Bullet Hell (or even videogames) yet are frequently overlooked in favor of fanworks in the same medium. ** As noted on the FanFic page, early fans of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' who lacked access to the original manga ended up creating widespread {{Fanon}} to make up for the anime's AdaptationExplanationExtrication, which was exacerbated when fic writers who had never even seen the anime joined in and were unable to tell where {{Canon}} ended and Fanon began.

Added DiffLines:
* The highly popular and successful ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' games (including a [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicII sequel]], [[ComicBook/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic comic series]], and [[VideoGame/TheOldRepublic MMO]]) are loosely based on the ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheJedi'' comic series from the mid-to-late-Nineties, and in fact borrow the name from one of its story arcs. Although it does reference events, characters, and locations from ''Tales'', the game series has far outstripped it in recognition.

** By the same token, most people haven't seen the pictures that were exhibited in an 1874 exhibition of Viktor Hartmann's works, the pictures having been overshadowed by the musical interpretations of them.
