** If you didn't read the book, you could be forgiven for not realizing that the Mind Game is a WideOpenSandbox rather than a simple linear fantasy game -- which is problematic, since the famous "Giant's Drink" sequence can end up looking a tad ridiculous if you don't know that. With the Mind Game as a sprawling, open-ended universe, it's understandable that Ender's fixation on [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard the Giant's Drink challenge]] could come off as disturbing, since most children would simply dismiss the challenge as unwinnable and move on to another part of the game. Presented as one level in a linear game, Ender's solution ([[spoiler:murdering the Giant]]) becomes the obvious one, his persistence just makes him look like a {{Determinator}}, and the grown-ups' horror upon seeing Ender TakingAThirdOption looking like they are clueless about how game programming works and/or didn't bothered to call the game's developer to see if that was even possible (the book also mentions something about the game being self-procedurally generating, but ''this'' doesn't appears on the movie either).

* The SoBadItsGood fanfic Fanfic/ThomasJoshmanAndTheMirrorOfDreams is essentially a poorly-written summary of Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone with the SerialNumbersFiledOff, but several key scenes are removed, rendering later events incomprehensible. For instance, in both works, first years never get on their sports' team. However, Harry is made Quidditch seeker after displaying extreme natural skill, while Thomas apparently becomes Fobull defender for... being in the hospital a few weeks.

** Inverted in Series/PowerRangersTimeForce; the first episode of Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger has a bad UnexplainedRecovery moment when the Timerangers are trapped in a crashed ship which explodes with them on it...and are inexplicably uninjured afterwards. In the corresponding Time Force scene, Trip frees himself and gets the others off the ship before it blows.

** Also, the HotSpringsEpisode comes after Ilulu's attack on Tohru, with Takiya specifically suggesting the trip because he knew something heavy had happened and wanted to give the others a vacation to ease their minds, as well as maintaining the sense of community between the group. [[AdaptedOut Since Ilulu didn't show up in the anime]], the OVA simply removes that part and has Takiya use the community explanation.

** Early episodes show a giant penny on display in the Bat Cave, purely because he has one in the comics, which he got during his one and only encounter with Joe Coyne, aka The Penny Plunderer. The Penny Plunderer never appears in the cartoon, but a later episode averts the trope by giving a new explanation: Two-Face had tried to kill Batman by tying Batman to the penny and then launching it into the air, and "they let him keep it."

*** The first arc of the first season, the Friagne arc, is an adaptation of the first light novel. ''Unlike'' the anime, however, the novel is clear that there are two spells in Friagne's EvilPlan: City Devourer, which creates the massive amount of [[LifeEnergy Power of Existence]] necessary to power the second spell, and said second spell, Resurrection, capable of giving an entity a full existence. It is explicity stated the creator of Resurrection is the Crimson Denizen Leanansidhe. Friange also plants the second spell in his ring of fire resistance, Azure. Neither spell is set off before Friagne is killed, so Resurrection remains dormant within Azure. [[spoiler: This is why Yuji is able to gain a full existence in ''Shakugan no Shana Final''; the spell to do so was hanging around his neck practically the entire series, and why Leanansidhe was able to change the activation trigger to a [[TrueLovesKiss kiss]]; it was his spell in the first place!]]
