** The basic plot of the original ''WesternAnimation/TheYearWithoutASantaClaus'' poem is that Santa doesn't feel like delivering presents this year, the kids gets whiny about it, but one kid named Iggy Thistlewhite (originally Heppelwhite) tells his classmates that Christmas is about giving, the kids take his word to heart and give presents to Santa, and that cheers him up and gets him to go on his annual trek. Rankin/Bass' version added in the subplots about people not caring about Christmas anymore, and Mrs. Claus sending Jingle and Jangle to look for Christmas cheer, and of course, the Miser Brothers. In fact, Iggy Thistlewhite is the only character in the special who originates from the poem (besides the standard Santa characters, of course).

* As the ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' anime reaches the end of it's first season, there is far more scenes original to the anime (some of which Isayama wanted to put in the manga but cut for pacing reasons). These better develop minor characters, add more action and increase the emotional intensity of various events (for example, Episode 22 is almost entirely original content focusing on the aftermath of the [[spoiler:Special Ops Squad's]] deaths). These scenes have been generally well received.

* ''Manga/DeathNote'' is actually an expansion of the original ''Death Note'' story, which was a one-shot chapter. It featured a junior high student who finds the titular notebook which was accidently dropped by Ryuk, but since he can't read English well, he uses it as a diary and ends up killing people. [[spoiler: Ryuk eventually finds him and gives him the Death Eraser, which allows him to bring the people whose names he had written into the notebook back to life.]] The much more well-known manga is an expansion on the idea, turning the junior high student into a high school student with a [[AGodAmI god complex]] and the FilmNoir detective a mega genius with an extreme sweet tooth. And lots and lots of IKnowYouKnowIKnow.

** The animated special ''Episode One'' expands on the first two episodes of the series, adding LOTS of anime-original material (and those were episodes that ''already'' added scenes to the original manga's rendition): a cameo of [[spoiler: Sherry/Shiho/Ai finding out that the fatal drug can be a FountainOfYouth]] a scene where [[ActionGirl Hina Wada]] apprehends a thief on her own, several scenes [[ShipTease with Ran and Shinichi interacting on their own]], another where the culprit of the first case is seen visiting Sonoko's parents and panicking when Shinichi shows up, [[spoiler: Gin and Vodka disposing of an apparent traitor]], the karate tournament that Ran wins and leads to Shinichi taking her to Tropical Land to celebrate ''and'' showcases the time when Makoto fell in LoveAtFirstSight with Sonoko, [[spoiler: Shinichi's parents in disguises]], tiny apparitions of [[spoiler: Kir (as Rena Mizuhashi), Korn and Chianti]], a change in how the Detective Boys first appreared, [[spoiler: more details about Gin and Vodka's blackmail operation that led to Shinichi being shrunk into Conan]], etc. The very final sequence also includes ''quite'' a change: [[spoiler: it showcases Akemi Miyano's death... but following the manga rendition, as her first and last intervention had been changed in the anime to make her survive for some time: here, such a modification is probably retconned.]]

** ''Manga/DragonBall'' does this with a few episodes. A notable example; in the manga, there's a scene where a female Red Ribbon officer [[TheSmurfettePrinciple (and apparently the only one in the whole army)]] known as Colonel Violet presents Commander Red with a Dragon Ball. In the anime adaption of that episode, not only does the audience see Violet retrieve it, but later, upon realizing that Goku's attack is going to spell the end of the Army, [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere she loots Red's riches and gets out of Dodge]].

* The anime adaption of ''[[Manga/FutureDiary Mirai Nikki]]'' gives us some background for Marco and Ai, the BattleCouple that make up Seventh, something that wasn't included in the manga. [[spoiler: Ai was abandoned by her parents, then taken in by Eighth, and grew very attached to Marco. When Marco tried encouraging her to stop being so clingy, Ai fell prey to a trap concocted by some AlphaBitch students, and was gangraped as a result; Marco killed the rapists, and swore to protect Ai from then on.]]

** One of the most notorious instances may be the 1992 film ''Film/TheLawnmowerMan''. While elements of the short story technically appear, in how the title character dispatches one of his victims, the plot itself was so far removed from the source material that Stephen King sued to have his name removed from the title.

* ''Film/WeirdScience'' was adapted from the 1950s [[WeirdScience comic book of the same name]], specifically the story "Made of the Future" in issue #5. The adaption expanded upon and [[MagicalComputer modernised the premise]]. And given a "Creator/BratPack" flavour to boot.

* Thanks to ''Literature/{{Allegiant}}'' being split into two films, its first part, ''Film/TheDivergentSeriesAllegiant'' allow for many chances at this.

* Hunter Steele's novel ''Lord Hamlet's Castle'' does this to ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', chiefly by making it HotterAndSexier. For example, when Ophelia recounts how Hamlet visited her in her bedchamber, what she doesn't tell her father is that she and Hamlet had extremely explicit, rampant, steaming, highly physical sex ... which is ''why'' his stockings were "down-gyved to his ankle".

** Then, the series spills over into a comic adaption after concluding its TV run.

** An SNES version of ''Lord of the Rings'' had lots of this as well, but done very poorly. First you had to assemble the party of four Hobbits (Pippin and Merrin ''seperate''), find old Gaffer's glasses in a cave west to of the Shire, otherwise Samgee wouldn't join. Then several hours later, you had to find 12 talismans otherwise you couldn't get through some tombs that were never in the book...

* The whole point of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''. 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 ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', expanding even deeper into the world of ''Star Wars.''

* The [[RecursiveAdaptation manga adaptation]] of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' would usually adapt episodes from the TV series, but with the plots expanded to fit the length of [[WritingForTheTrade a standard manga story arc]]. For instance, the adaptation of ""¥$," significantly lengthened the fight between the Major and the assassin Fem, and explored Fem's backstory and motivations in far greater detail.

* With one exception, Creator/JunjiIto's manga adaptation of Frankenstein is this. The added scenes detailed Frankenstein having nightmares of Justine, as well as Henry Clerval discovering Frankenstein creating the female wretch, helping him, and then the wretch coming in with a head for the female. [[spoiler: Which is Justine's head.]] An additional theme added to the adaptation is [[spoiler: Clerval telling Frankenstein this could resurrect the dead... however she CameBackWrong and tried to kill the wretch, is then killed in self-defense.]] From then on, it veers back on track with the novel we know of.

** The "Curse of the Scribble Panda" episode pads out the version from the manga, which was only a few pages long, by adding two things: firstly, the other {{yokai}} from the other wall scrolls also come to life, forcing Soun, Genma & Happosai to hold them off. Secondly, when Ranma tries to claim he and the Panda can't be together because they're different species, she [[VoluntaryShapeshifting promptly turns herself into a beautiful human girl]], so Ranma finds himself actually a little attracted to her.
