** In the sound novels and manga, Keiichi has blue eyes, the exact same shade as Rena's in the manga, but darker (and with a slight purple shade; mostly in the remakes), in the sound novels. In the anime however, they're full-on purple.
** A larger example is in the live action movie adaptations. All the oddly colored characters have "natural" colored hair. Cue InternetBackdraft here. Which is ironic since they would have looked like oddly dressed cosplayers. The backdraft is because you can't tell the girls apart. Rika has short hair, Satoko has longish hair, and the teens look similar if they aren't in their Higurashi costumes, which they usually aren't.
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'''s anime adaptation changed everyones eye color, which didn't work well since it was plot related.

* The Hero in Sierra's ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' series sported very bright blond hair in the EGA version of ''QuestForGloryI'' (partially due to the technology limitations of the 16-color EGA graphics). When the game received its 256-color VGA remake, the Hero's hair became more of a sandy color. This particularly stands out since the other titles in the series kept a brighter yellow, though somewhat toned down through more realistic and detailed shading, hair color.

* In the live-action ''Manga/DeathNote'' movies, Misa Amane has the brown hair natural to her actress, instead of the blonde she had in the anime and manga. Other characters were given relatively normal Japanese hair, but hers stood out the most. Also in the anime Misa gets symbolic light blue hair in one episode when everyone goes into "thinking mode", and a brief shot in the first opening shows her with deep blue hair and golden eyes.

** Arya has black hair. In the [[TheFilmOfTheBook movie]], she inexplicably has blonde hair. This, when combined with her human features, makes it impossible to tell she is an elf (except for the fact that early in the film it is directly mentioned she is, which just reinforces the idea that otherwise, nobody would work that out). The changes of hair and ears were reportedly because the director feared a confusion with Literature/LordOfTheRings' Arwen. Which is especially funny in the latter case, as Tolkien never said his elves had pointed ears in the published texts (the only hint comes from a tiny note in an etymological dictionary about his {{ConLang}}s).

** Some of the main characters. Everybody had normal hair colors in the manga, but some of them got crazy 80's rainbow-hair when the anime adaption came. The most dramatic were brothers Pheonix Ikki and Andromeda Shun, both of whom had brown hair in the manga. In the anime, Ikki's hair is blue and Shun's is kelly green. One could say that their overall color change may be based on a [[SuperMarioBros famous pair of brothers]]. Looking at the latter duo [[SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan nowadays]], [[HilariousInHindsight this may be true]].

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', the exact colour of most of the character's hair & eye colours seems to differ in the official artwork & side material compared to the series itself. For example, Asuka is always drawn with auburn hair in the show itself, while in most official anime art and Sadamoto illustrations she's drawn with bright orange hair, or in rare instances of the latter, even ''blonde'' hair. Shinji has brown hair and blue eyes in the show, but in the Sadamoto manga, he has black hair and brown eyes. Rei's hair is always light blue, but it differs in shades, particularly in the anime art. Misato's hair is the least defined, going from very dark purple (probably as a stand-in for black), to full-on black, to medium-purple and back again. (At least one piece of official anime art shows her hair as dark ''blue''.)

* Marvel's version of the goddess Sif has black hair, rather than gold; this was because [[Myth/NorseMythology the myth]] of Loki shearing her head in her sleep and having to replace it was changed in this version. Like in the original mythology, he commissioned the dwarves to forge new hair, but didn't pay them what he originally promised. Thus, instead of golden hair, they made black hair to spite him. (Fortunately, Thor thought Sif looked even more beautiful as a brunette, so it all ended well.)
