* ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'' is based loosely off of ''Comicbook/TheInfinityGauntlet'', boiling down the main premise to fit within an ExcusePlot for a fighting game: Thanos plans to wipe out life in the universe with the Infinity Gems, and Marvel's pantheon of heroes (plus a couple of villains) must stop him.

* Literature/BlackWidowers:
** "Literature/TruthToTell": InUniverse, Halsted is adapting ''Literature/TheIliad'' into limericks, one book at a time. The first book goes as follows:
---> Agamemnon, the top-ranking Greek,\\
To Achilles in anger did speak.\\
They argued a lot,\\
Then Achilles grew hot,\\
And went stamping away in a pique.
** "Literature/GoLittleBook": InUniverse, Halsted is adapting ''Literature/TheIliad'' into limericks, one book at a time. The second book goes as follows:
---> Agamemnon's dream strategy slips,\\
The morale of his troops quickly dips.\\
First Thersites complains,\\
But Odysseus restrains,\\
And we next have the Cat'log of Ships.
** "Literature/EarlySundayMorning": InUniverse, Halsted is adapting ''Literature/TheIliad'' into limericks, one book at a time. The third book goes as follows:
---> Menelaus, though not very mighty,\\
Was stronger than Paris, the flighty.\\
Menelaus did well in\\
The duel over Helen,\\
But was foiled by divine Aphrodite.

* ''Anime/DragonBallKai'' cut out a lot of the {{Filler}} and [[InactionSequence Inaction Sequences]] in the original ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. Not only did this reduce the story from 291 episodes down to 159, but it was also far more faithful to the original manga than the 1989 TV series.

* The anime adaptation of ''Manga/SweetBlueFlowers'' concentrates mostly on the lead characters, with the relationship between Fumi and Yasuko taking central stage. This leads to it having more focus than the original manga, since Shimura loves to introduce loads of extraneous characters with their own back stories.



** While [[Anime/AstroBoy the first anime series]] generally had low production values (it was the first animated TV series produced in Japan, so it took them a while to get the hang of it) and the heavier themes of the manga were often toned down for mass consumption, a few of the stories adapted from the manga were much tighter than the originals. [[Anime/AstroBoy The 1980s anime]] had the same problems as the first, but added the character of Atlas (actually an amalgam of three different characters from the manga), a complex recurring villain who tied several episodes together into a single overriding story arc. Then came [[Anime/AstroBoy the 2003 series]] which, while still fairly episodic by modern anime standards, had a continuous storyline revolving around the struggles between humanity and robot-kind, tying together classic stories from the manga, greatly expanding the role of Astro's father, Dr. Tenma, and featured animation quality similar to that used in Tezuka Productions' acclaimed theatrical release ''Film/{{Metropolis}}''. In a non-animated example, the Sankei Newspaper comic strip version, originally a continuation of the story from the first anime, turned into a continuity reboot after Astro {{Time Travel}}led back to the (then) present, eventually died and then the time of his creation rolled around again. This version greatly expanded on Astro's backstory and his relationship with Dr. Tenma. And then there is the UltimateUniverse version created by Creator/NaokiUrasawa (of ''Manga/{{Monster}}'' fame) for his futuristic suspense-thriller manga ''Manga/{{Pluto}}''. ''Then'' we have the 2009 animated movie by IMAGI but distributed for American audiences… definitely the farthest away from the original storyline, only keeping the key points from the OriginStory.

* The anime of ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' suffered heavily from this with several scenes either rushed, changed or removed entirely. Normally this would be rather bad but in this case it was catastrophic since Umineko is a mystery that heavily relies on small hints and clues. This means that if they ever makes a second season the mystery will be unsolvable.
