** Similarly, the adaptation of "TheCallOfCthulhu" is framed as a police investigation, which [[spoiler:causes a significant change from the original story at the end]].

* ''Series/ThirteenReasonsWhy'' expands greatly on the novel. In the novel, Clay listens to the 13 tapes explaining Hannah's suicide in one night and has minimal interaction with the subjects of the tapes, with much of the story being flashbacks. The show expands this to weeks of him listening to the tapes. It also adds more depth to the subjects of the tapes as well as a subplot about them trying to stop Clay from releasing the information to the public and [[spoiler: Hannah's parents suing the school for neglecting to notice the bullying.]] The show also received a second season, which will be all original content (since the book's plot was wrapped up in the final episode of the third season).

* ''TheWorstWitch'' has gone through this several times over. The TV movie padded itself with sequences including a "scaring contest" and an early sequence with Punk Charlotte Rae, and the later series would pad the same adaptation by using the "Ethel's a pig" sequence as the basis for an episode (introducing a whole new character in Mr Blossom's nephew Charlie), while adding in a climactic chase through the school grounds. Bizarrely, it's otherwise managed to incorporate adaptations of the next three books as-is (although ''The Worst Witch Strikes Again'' was made into two separate episodes).\\

** Also, in the manga, Matt, while still a very minor character, had a bigger role than he did in the anime.

Added DiffLines:

** The Lizardmen get several new units, including Feral Cold Ones (a pack of Cold Ones, a type of raptor-like dinosaurs normally used by the Lizardmen as cavalry) and likewise "feral" variants of the other dinosaur mounts as one-model monster units, with the reasoning being that giving the Lizardmen more dinosaur units would make playing as them more fun. There is also a Bastiladon variant with a Revivification Crystal, included to give the Lizardmen more options for healing and buffing.

* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': The series fills in a lot of the details on events which were only mentioned by the book. Among them are what happened prior to the regime taking over, and Ofglen's fate after she's taken away.

* ''3000 Leagues to Find Mother'' tells the adventures and misadventures of an Italian boy named Marco Rossi, who goes to Argentina [[IWillFindYou to find his mother]]. The basis for it is a mere ''chapter'' of the book ''Cuore'' by the Italian writer Edmondo D'Amici, so the series itself takes the basic idea and timeline and builds a whole story from there by inserting SliceOfLife episodes with Marco and his remaining family (his father and older brother Tonio) preparing for the travel, Marco befriending a nearby family and specially the youngest daughter Fiorina [[spoiler: and finding them again in Argentina]], the addition of Marco's [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys pet monkey]] Amedio, etc.

* ''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.

This actually wound up being pretty unpopular, as the opening forty minutes have little connection to the main story and feature some...[[CoitusEnsues questionable choices in characterization]].



** ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax'' adds additional characters and expands beyond the book's original ending as the boy ([[NamedByTheAdaptation now named Ted]]) attempts to carry out the Once-ler's wishes. But in a disturbing twist, the Once-ler is portrayed as human... and here comes the [[{{Anvilicious}} aesop anvil]] on schedule.

* ''Webcomic/{{Erstwhile}}'' adapts lesser-known stories by Creator/TheBrothersGrimm. Most just follow their version, with the occasional [[NamedByTheAdaptation name]] or exposition thrown in; "Literature/SnowWhiteAndRoseRed," however, adds two new scenes to set up the {{Official Couple}}s and ending better. (One where Snow White talks to the bear, and another when the girls go in town, see a poster about the missing prince and meet his brother.)
