In [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration the series]], he never showed any sign of irrational hatred for the Borg, even in episodes which dealt with the Borg and took place after his assimilation.

Some (e.g. ''Literature/TheSevenPerCentSolution'') emphasize the drug addiction theme; others purport to explain Holmes' strange and solitary character by giving him a [[TheLostLenore lost love]] or other [[DarkAndTroubledPast tragic past]].

* The fate of Sachi and her guild did serve as a DownerEnding for the original episode of ''Anime/SwordArtOnline'', but as it was originally a side-story in the LightNovel it didn't have a lot of effect on the rest of the storyline. In ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged'', it becomes MyGreatestFailure for Kirito, and gives him a case of PTSD that takes him years to bring under some semblance of control. It's also a big part of his CharacterDevelopment from HeroicComedicSociopath to TheSnarkKnight.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}''
** The titular character, Oliver Queen has a lot more grief in his life than his comics counterpart ever had. His ordeal on the island was much more bleaker and torturesome. As a result he is much more violent, aggressive, and serious.
** Quentin Lance. His family problems are a lot more bleaker. He had to go with one of his daughters dying [[IThoughtYouWereDead twice]], his wife leaves him, his job takes a hit due to working with the vigilante, and then his other daughter dies as well.

* In the Duelist Kingdom arc in ''Franchise/YuGiOh'', after he winds up essentially forfeiting to Kaiba, feeling he's let his weakness take over him causes Yugi to turn into a sobbing wreck. While in the [[Manga/YuGiOh manga]] Mai is able to snap him out of this after about 2 or 3 pages, in [[Anime/YuGiOh the anime]] it took a whole filler episode with Anzu challenging Mai to a duel to get him back to normal.
** In the dub, Yugi was still too afraid to let Yami duel. It took 4½ more episodes and an almost one-sided duel with Mai to overcome it.
