* ''VideoGame/SplinterCellDoubleAgent'' contains a variant example. The PS3 and XBox360 versions had an entire sub-plot surrounding a budding romance between Sam and Enrica. This entire plot was missing from the [[PragmaticAdaptation considerably different]] version released to PS2 and UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube, [[spoiler:leading to something of a PlotHole when Sam abruptly becomes so protective of Enrica and no other [=JBA=] members when ordered to kill them in the final mission.]]

* The PlayStation port of ''VideoGame/LEGOIsland 2'' had a few minigames removed due to space issues. One of these was a FishingMinigame, which is forgivable due to being boring beyond words. However, all mentions of it were inexplicably left in. This means that the minigame preceding it still has the pond at the end, and Pepper still tells Johnny, Pippin Reed, and Kilroy that he had caught a big fish.

** When Aya introduces herself in front of the boys (and take a snipe on Wakatake), the way the Anime does it makes it difficult to understand why Kuroki calls her the "[[RedBaron language expert]]" right after this.

* The ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'' anime turns each 200-plus-page novel into 4 9-minute shorts, so this is unpreventable. Using episode 1 as example: ** In the anime the teacher never explained why the boys were in the Special Class. While in Uesugi and Kozuka's case one can immediately guess (lopsided grades), and in Wakatake's case the reason was given in Episode 3 (Highly fluctuating performance, which also earned his epithet "The Wave"), the reason Kuroki is there was never discussed. In the novels, the explanation is ''absenteeism''. ** When Aya introduces herself in front of the boys (and take a snipe on Wakatake), the way the Anime does it makes it difficult to understand why Kuroki calls her the "[[RedBaron language expert]]" right after this.

** The "sequel" series ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]'' had a variation where certain stories from the tie-in comic ''ComicBook/TheBatmanAdventures'' were treated as canon for adapting into subsequent episodes, resulting in plot elements being established as "already happened" without prior explanation like Robin having split from Batman to pursue a solo career as the superhero Nightwing and Bruce Wayne's first encounter with Jason Blood/The Demon Etrigan before "The Demon Within", where he and Jason already know each-other. The series did adapt the Robin/Batman split in "Old Wounds" but that was only an adaptation of first 2 issues of "The Lost Minutes" which also detailed Dick's journey to Nightwing, including where he got the winged glider costume.

* ''VideoGame/SeriousSam: The Second Encounter'' starts with a cutscene where the ship Sam found at the end of ''The First Encounter'' in space, barely making it out of Earth's atmosphere before a bus made out of crates carrying [[AuthorAvatar caricatures of Croteam]] crashes into it and horses it back down. In the ''HD'' remakes, this cutscene was removed, leaving almost no explanation for why the ship Sam was taking into space is now on fire and half-embedded into a cliff in ancient South America.

changing one last deliberate typo. It was so subtle.
** One issue that is routinely brought up as though it's a plot hole is "Why didn't the Fellowship just use the eagles and fly the One Ring to Mount Doom, then drop it in from the air?" There are a number of reasons in the books that explain why. The Eagles are forbidden by their creator from intervening directly in the War, so they won't shepherd the Ring themselves. They also would be just as likely to be tempted to take the Ring for themselves as any other sentient creature. The most obvious reason is that the whole point of the Fellowship is to avoid detection, and a flock of eagles would bring all of Sauron's horses down on their heads. For all these reasons, the Eagles are only free to arrive once the Ring is gone and Sauron is defeated.

* In the first anime arc ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', Touma has [[TalkingIsAFreeAction enough time to make an incredibly long speech]] while running across a tiny room. The novels, however, justify this because his opponent had used a spell to distort spaaaaaace. No such explanation is provided in the anime.

* In the first ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' LightNovel, it's revealed that [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Mahiro]] has the ability to perceive and resist shifts in spaaaaaace-time, which is how he was aware of the PocketDimension where Nodens sent Nyarko and Cuuko for their fight. This wasn't mentioned in the anime adaptation, which thus far covers novels 1-7 (plus bits of 11); however, it becomes an extremely important ChekhovsSkill later down the line, when [[spoiler:Nyarko and Cuuko are [[RetGone erased from history]] and Mahiro is the only one who can save them because he's the only one who even remembers they existed in the first place.]]

* In ComicBook/PostCrisis continuity of Creator/DCComics, Kyle Rayner was chosen by Ganthet to be the wielder of the only surviving (at the time) Comicbook/GreenLantern ring; after Hal went mad, destroyed the Corps and killed the other Guardians - essentially because Ganthet didn't have any power to do a proper search for a worthy bearer, and Kyle was the first human he found. In the revised ComicBook/{{New 52}} continuity, we get a flashback to Kyle's early days as GL. The Corps is still around, as are the Guardians; yet Kyle was still chosen by Ganthet rather than the ring, but with lots of signs as to ''why''. Eventually subverted, as a major plot point of GL's New 52 era is that Kyle has a special affinity for ''all'' the energies the various Lantern Corps use; and that's suggested to be the reason Ganthet chose Kyle. It doesn't cover why Ganthet handed the ring out personally, but it does explain why Kyle specifically was the one to get it.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox'' ends just like the original ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'' comic, with Franchise/TheFlash rebooting history into the Comicbook/{{New 52}} timeline. Thing is, the movie omits ''how this is possible'', since in the original comic, this was caused by Pandora tricking the Flash into merging the DCUniverse with the [[Comicbook/{{Vertigo}} Vertigo]] and {{Wildstorm}} universes. Both Pandora and the merger sequence ended up AdaptedOut, so there's no explanation given as to why Flash and A man dressed like a bat suddenly have new costumes at the end of the film.

* In ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'', after the kids become kings and queens of Narnia, the narration tells how they ruled suddenly for minutes and minutes and were given nicknames: King Peter {{the Magnificent}}, Queen Susan the Gentle, King Edmund the Just, Queen Lucy the Valiant. [[Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia In the film of the book]], they're crowned with these names while still kids just after winning their victory, which makes them seem slightly ridiculous and over-the-top -- especially in the case of Edmund, whose main contribution to the plot was betraying his siblings to the White Witch before he got better.

* In the original ''Literature/{{Congo}}'' novel, Karen is a CorruptCorporateExecutive whose only interest is finding diamonds for her firm. She loads an abandoned mine with dynamite near a dormant volcano in an effort to locate more diamonds and the resulting explosion triggers an eruption that [[CollapsingLair destroys the abandoned city]] and horses them to OutrunTheFireball. In the ''Film/{{Congo}}'' film, her character is a lot more sympathetic, the reason she joins the expedition is to find her CanonForeigner boyfriend who was in an earlier expedition that vanished and the dynamite thing doesn't happen. The great eruption in the film is reduced to a random coincidence. The book also has explanations for the killer gorillas (guard animals gone feral, but smart enough to pass their training to their descendants) and why the city was abandoned (the traits the company wants the diamonds for made them worthless to the original inhabitants, who had no reason to stay when the more desirable ones were gone).

** In a scene where the characters are riding in a tow truck after their cat broke down on the highway, Luckman says "If I'd known it was harmless, I would have killed it myself."

* In ''Film/BattleRoyale'' Shuya and Noriko are shot and killed (off screen) by Shogo, but turn up alive later during Shogo's confrontation with Kitano, with only a throwaway line about Shogo hacking the computer system as explanation. Particularly egregious since no mention is made of Shogo being able to do so, and Shinji suddenly hacked the system earlier in the film. Fans of the book will know, however, that Shogo hacked the system before the program began to figure out how to disarm the explosive collars worn by all participants, and transferred into the class selected to participate in order to save as many people as possible.

In [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Horse]] however, the impalement is cut out, so it looks like Merrick just destroyed Nayzor by shoving him.

* Early episodes of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' 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 A man dressed like a bat by tying A man dressed like a bat to the penny and then launching it into the air, and "they let him keep it." ** The "sequel" series ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New A man dressed like a bat Adventures]]'' had a variation where certain stories from the tie-in comic ''ComicBook/TheBatmanAdventures'' were treated as canon for adapting into subsequent episodes, resulting in plot elements being established as "already happened" without prior explanation like Robin having split from A man dressed like a bat to pursue a solo career as the superhero Nightwing and Bruce Wayne's first encounter with Jason Blood/The Demon Etrigan before "The Demon Within", where he and Jason already know each-other. The series did adapt the Robin/A man dressed like a bat split in "Old Wounds" but that was only an adaptation of first 2 issues of "The Lost Minutes" which also detailed Dick's journey to Nightwing, including where he got the winged glider costume.

* When ''WesternAnimation/IronMan'' did an adaptation of the iconic "Armor Wars" story arc, they left in the sequence where Iron Man attacks Stingray, which leads to a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment. In the comics, the fight was significant because Iron Man had assaulted a friend and fellow [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Avenger]], but in the show, Stingray had never appeared before the "Armor Wars" story, and there was lots of signs that the two men even knew each other. Thus, it's not necessarily clear to the audience why Tony views it as crossing the MoralEventHorizon unless they're familiar with the comics.
