* In Fanfic/TheLittlePonyLegend, the fanfic's version of Friendship Games gives Team Avatar a major role to play as well as an alternate explanation to why Princess Twilight could not go through the Portal, which is that it reacts abnormally when Human Twilight comes into contact with it during her investigations.

** The ''Brotherhood'' anime was more faithful to the manga itself (they finished at the same time!), but it also had some scenes and episodes dedicated to this trope. i.e. the first episode was full-on anime-only material, centered on a CanonForeigner named Isaac "Freezing Alchemist" [=McDougal=]... who turns out to be [[spoiler: the first person to ever realize Father's plans to turn Amestris into a giant transmutation circle, which [[HeKnowsTooMuch gets him killed by Pride]] on-screen (just like the second person, Hughes, was killed by Envy some time later). Twenty episodes later, when Ed ''also'' deduces the truth [[OhCrap and is horrified at it]], his train of thoughts include a flashback to [=McDougal=]'s words during their fight, which turn from ForeShadowing to {{wham line}}s.]]

* The original ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' was [[http://www.yellowbridge.com/onlinelit/mulan.php a short ballad]] that summarizes the story of [[SweetPollyOliver a girl who went to war]] and [[LadyOfWar became a valiant soldier]], surprising her comrades when they visited her home and [[SamusIsAGirl discovered her true gender]]. Since the original is just a summary, a lot of details would need to be made up whenever the tale gets adapted to [[Disney/{{Mulan}} animation]], [[Film/{{Mulan}} film]], opera, or TV.

* The whole point of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''. It's designed to help bridge the three-year gap between the second and third films--and redeem the excessive IdiotBall escapades they're notorious for. So far, there's been an 2-D adaption directed by Creator/GenndyTartakovsky, which reveals that General Grievous is prone to coughing and wheezing because [[spoiler: Mace Windu was forced to crumple his chestplates in and severely maimed his delicate lungs.]] This adaptation was followed up by a 3D animated series, expanding even deeper into the world of ''Star Wars.''

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheKillingJoke'', based on [[ComicBook/TheKillingJoke the comic of the same name]], includes a prologue to help expand the runtime of the movie and (ostensibly) set-up the story, including a focus on Barbara Gordon's time as Batgirl. Unfortunately, this prologue is widely considered to be SoBadItsHorrible.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/{{Logan}}'': Also mixes this with PragmaticAdaptation:
*** ''Comicbook/OldManLogan'': Much of the comic would have been impossible to adapt due to the distribution of film rights. Among the only things taken from the original book is following an aging Logan, who also has an aging companion from the past (Hawkeye in the book, Charles in the film).
*** ''Comicbook/InnocenceLost'': Substantial material is adapted from Comicbook/{{X 23}}'s origin story, with Transigen serving as an {{Expy}} for the Facility, while also introducing Zander Rice, and of course X-23 herself. Elements of her creation and training appear in an in-universe film Logan finds. This material is itself further expanded upon, with X-23 being not just Laura, but an entire ''group'' of mutant children with different powers from different donors. [[spoiler:Logan's death also nods towards the death of Sarah Kinney in the book, as he ultimately gives his life trying to help her escape her pursuers, and gets to share a final, poignant moment with his daughter, dying in her arms]].
*** [[spoiler:''Comicbook/DeathOfWolverine'': Logan dies. His thick beard and tuxedo early on is very similar to an outfit he wears in part of the comic miniseries, and like the series a major setting of the film is at the casino. Logan sacrificing his life to save mutants from experimentation also serves as a nod to the books.]]
