* The ''Manga/SoulEater'' fanfic ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'' features a more complex setting than the original material due to the author taking aspects of it and running with them or adding in his own, original touches.

* 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.''

* All of the Creator/GilbertAndSullivan works are expansions on short stories, poems, and other of W. S. Gilbert's writings. Of these, the poems ("The Bab Ballads" have also remained fairly popular, especially in Britain, but [[ScrewedByTheNetwork copyright claims by the magazines he published]] meant his only attempt to publish a collection of stories ended up getting pulled from the market.

* Creator/RoaldDahl's children's novel ''Literature/FantasticMrFox'' was [[WesternAnimation/FantasticMrFox adapted]] by Creator/WesAnderson. Much of the expansion comes in the form of focusing on the animals' plans to evade the farmers, the relationships and [[CharacterDevelopment development]] of characters, and and the addition of AwesomeMusic and FunnyMoments to accompany the storyline. (As revealed in a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, it also gave Ms. Fox [[NominalImportance a name-]] [[spoiler:Felicity]].) The ending to the movie was found in Dahl's archives.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'':
** Because Giroro, Kururu, and especially Dororo and Koyuki are introduced in the anime much earlier than in the manga, several storylines not featuring them at all were modified to include them.
** Because of the time difference between the start of the manga and the anime, Angol Mois' backstory is somewhat modified. Everything up to the point of Mois telling UsefulNotes/{{Nostradamus}} about her destroying the earth was true but she ended up being five years too late (2004 instead of 1999, 2009 in the Funimation dub).
** Mutsumi (623) still has his radio show in the anime, but he is a student in Natsumi's class instead of a high school dropout. Also the fact that he is the host of the 623 radio show seems to be a secret from Natsumi and other listeners of the show.
** In the manga, Keroro gains access to the Kero Ball early in the plot, but in the anime Fuyuki keeps it. This means that several of the early uses of the Kero Ball in the manga didn't happen in the anime or found other ways to happen. Meanwhile, the anime had its own exclusive story focusing on the Kero Ball.
** In the manga, Sumomo is a female 'Ahotoran' who appears in a bonus chapter, while in the anime Sumomo is a hit intergalactic popstar who appears in several episodes throughout the early seasons of the show. Even after she stops appearing, her presence can still be seen through merchandising and posters featuring her.
** Dororo and Koyuki live in a house next to the Hinata's in the manga, whereas in the anime, they live in the woods near Momoka's estate and can see the Nishizawa tower from their home.
** Many of the Sgt. Frog anime episodes are [[{{Filler}} not found in the manga]].
** In the manga, there's only an impersonal narrator, while the anime uses the narrator as a character who eventually even appears on screen.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
** Korra's character is given additional traits as she interacts with the Mane Six.
** The entire LoK storyline is incorporated into MLP:FiM, taking place at certain points during Season 4 or near Season 5 and 6. Many things are added either to incorporated the FiM characters or to maybe expand on certain characters actions via narration.
** Mako's backstory is explored in "The Nightmare's Return" and displays the character growth he went through the Legend of Korra much more clearly.
** Earth Queen Hou-Ting's character is given a fairly sympathetic backstory as well as a new lease on life in Book 3 and beyond.
** Kuvira meets and befriends Korra during the Avatar's stay in Zaofu, adding more weight to their conflict in "Balance of the Heart." All while keeping true to Book 4's storyline as a whole.
** Starlight Glimmer's backstory as shown in ''The Cutie Remark'' is expanded upon to show how she and Sunburst grew further apart in the time that passed since the latter got his Cutie Mark.
** The fic's version of ''The Crystalling'' expands on Starlight's role while giving the role of Sunburst to his father.

** Story arcs after the first season take an even further step. The Nirvana arc sees the return of Erigor, a minor villain who [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse disappeared from the manga without a trace, even after Lucy speculated he would come back to take revenge]], which he does in the anime... but his fight with Natsu doesn't even last five minutes. In fact, he's made the one who [[spoiler:Jellal steals his clothes from after reviving]], a role given to a nameless {{mook}} in the manga. The Edolas arc gives attention to off-screen events only mentioned in the manga, such as Gajeel's adventure in Edolas that leads to Gray and Erza's rescue, teaming up with his [[CanonForeigner anime-exclusive counterpart]] to do it, and the Edolas version of Fairy Tail's debate over whether or not to stand up against the army after years of running away from them. After the arc ends, they even dedicate half an episode showing [[spoiler:Mystogan ruling Edolas as king and giving the villains their proper punishments while the rest of the world adapts to life without magic. It even gives us the suggestion that the main villain of the arc, Faust, was Makarov's counterpart all along.]] The Tenrou Island arc fleshes out Ultear's backstory where she is apparently abandoned by her mother and experimented on at the research facility, which turns out to be run by Brain, the villain of the Nirvana arc. And while Natsu and Co. are duking it out with Hades, we actually get to see what the rest of the guild is doing as they're holding the fort for their injured (according to the anime, that is fending off already-defeated minor villains who are still hanging around the island).
** The Key of the Starry Sky arc in the anime is pretty much considered canon -- the manga even gives it a passing mention. It gives Earthland versions of the Royal Military characters met in Edolas, [[spoiler:timeskip looks of returning Oracion Seis members]], we learn that Dranbalt was DrowningHisSorrows since the previous arc, and Kinana has some needed development concerning her past (which was only mentioned in her profile in the manga).
* When ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu]]'' was adapted into a manga by shoujo author Mitsuki Oosawa, she decided to add more content and plot development. As a result, this adaptation covers a lot of characterization of the side characters and goes into more detail on what happens within the countries where the battles happen. For instance, it creates a rather big subplot on the... [[BrotherSisterIncest unique situation]] between Eldigan and [[BadassPrincess Raquesis]]... though [[DerailingLoveInterests at the cost of making Eldigan's wife a jealous bitch]] and omitting Raquesis's suitor [[PunchClockHero Beowulf]] [[spoiler: so she can have [[KnightInShiningArmor Finn]] as her SecondLove]]. The LoveTriangle between [[BlowYouAway Lewyn]], [[LadyOfWar Ferry]] and [[GenkiGirl Sylvia]] develops relatively smoothly, and the losing girl [[spoiler:(Sylvia)]] is given a far more sympathetic role; and it delves rather well in the psyche of the future MagnificentBastard and BigBad, [[spoiler: Arvis of Velthomer]], making him a JerkAssWoobie.

** The 1984 TV series, although it toned down some of the violence and had [[OvertookTheManga lots of filler]], also actually [[CharacterDevelopment develops many characters beyond what they were developed in the manga]]. Shin, in particular, is given a much more prominent role and exploration of his backstory and motivations, making him a much more sympathetic character. They also add in a lot of variations of the Nanto schools, many interesting min-bosses and civilians (including several BadassBystanders), new towns (and even naming random locations visited in the manga), and show more of the daily lifestyles and cultures that emerged after the nuclear war.
