* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'':
** Anime {{Compilation Movie}}s are like this. The ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' trilogy, especially the third installment, ''Encounters In Space'' is a particularly good example.
*** One large example are the quartet of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny'' movies. ''Destiny'' had a number of flaws, and while the movies didn't alter the storyline, they did do some editing to mitigate the worst of it: flashbacks were greatly reduced, a couple new scenes were added to clarify certain plot points, and Athrun was made the viewpoint character, rather than Shinn or Kira, which improved the story's flow somewhat.
*** Another example is ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE Memory of Eden]]'', the AGE movie. It comes across as an AuthorsSavingThrow after the disastrous final run of AGE, and cuts out most of the story to focus exclusively on Asemu Asuno and Zeheart Gallette (which most fans thought was the best part of the show). This turns the story from a sprawling, shallow plot of a 75-year long war to a character-driven, personal story with the war as a backdrop, and goes a long way to justifying the actions Zeheart took at the end of the show, which seem to come out of nowhere in the series itself.
** ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin'' has a more focused story, cutting out many trivial episodes from the original series. This is especially obvious during White Base's time on Earth. In the anime, the ship basically hops from place to place on a rather vague course, whereas in the manga the White Base makes a clear journey from Los Angeles (where they land and where Garma Zabi is based) to Brazil (where Jaburo is located). Yasuhiko also switches certain events around to fit the new story, such as Operation Odessa taking place after the White Base reaches Jaburo, and Amuro encountering his mother before the White Base crew defeat Garma Zabi in battle.

*** ''No... you can't play this game at home.''
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' will take the plots of the various series it crosses over, cuts out the filler and leaves only the important plots, all while mixing it up like they took the plots and put them in a blender. It's less cutting out and more with everything happening at the same time things go much faster, though not everything happens as you would expect with everything interacting.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV'' is unusual in its means of dealing with the plot of ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'': previous titles have only had a single Angel per stage that they appear on, usually mixing the Angel attack with an attack by some other enemy force to provide cannon fodder. ''V'' instead has most ''Evangelion''-related stages feature at least two different Angels spawning in rapid succession, or even at the exact same time as one another. It eventually becomes plot-relevant: the DownerEnding of the second movie is averted because the Ninth and Tenth Angels manifest in the same battle, [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl and this changes Shinji's actions considerably]].

** ''Film/{{Logan}}'' is a loose adaptation of ''ComicBook/OldManLogan'' in part due to rights issues with other Marvel characters. [[spoiler:Additionally, it changes the deaths of the X-Men from being Mysterio tricking Wolverine into killing them to Xavier accidentally killing them with his powers during a seizure.]] It also adapts elements of ''ComicBook/DeathOfWolverine'', including Wolverine's healing factor shutting down [[spoiler:and ultimately Wolverine dying. The virus Transigen created to kill mutants and is shutting down Logan's healing factor also fuses the depowering of mutants in ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'', the Legacy Virus, and the virus that shut down Wolverine's healing factor in the lead-up to his death into one.]]

* The J-Drama form of ''Manga/HanaYoriDango'' managed to compress thirty-six volumes of manga written over a period of eleven years into a much smoother story, combining characters and editing plot arcs as necessary.

* [[Film/HarryPotter The film versions]] of ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'' and ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'' retain much of the dialogue almost word for word (though not all of it is spoken by the same characters Hermione had quite a few of Ron's lines and at least one of Seamus's) and every important scene from the books is left in, with a few merged with other scenes or removed from the story. There are a few other changes here and there, however. The finale of the first film, for example, removes Hermione's challenge of solving a logic puzzle, probably since solving a puzzle isn't the most exciting thing to watch. Hermione's moment to shine became the Devil's Snare, with Ron and Hermione's reactions being swapped (in the book, Hermione panicked and Ron had to tell her to get a grip, while it is the opposite in the film).
