** The adaptation of ''Literature/SadCypress'' raises the stakes by having the accused be convicted of the murder and sentenced to hang, forcing Poirot to race against time to find the real murderer before the innocent gets executed for it.
** Inverted in the ''Literature/OneTwoBuckleMyShoe'' adaptation. By diminishing the political overtones of the original setting, reducing the unpleasant characteristics of the scapegoat and removing many of the killer's sympathetic qualities by making him more moody and callous, the MoralDilemma that Poirot must face in the books are not apparent in the TV.

* The 2004 adaptation of the Literature/MissMarple novel ''Literature/TheBodyInTheLibrary'' makes the character of Mark Gaskell a lot more sympathetic by turning him into a former war hero suffering from shell-shock and SurvivorGuilt after the deaths of his wife and his two best friends.

** The difference is jarring to fans, as one of the trademarks of Aang's character in the original series is his [[AngstWhatAngst apparently-eternal optimism]], and the few times he truly fell into depression were: after realizing he really ''is'' the last Airbender (by discovering the remains of Monk Gyatso); had his oldest and closest friend stolen by sand-raiders; and effectively lost the war by allowing the Fire Nation to finally seize control of the Earth Kingdom (leaving only a small band of rebels, amounting to little more than a single battalion of soldiers). While Aang always has a subtle sense of melancholy and quiet moments in the original series, Movie! Aang is basically morose throughout the entire film, with nary a sign of the cartoon's positivism.

* The original ''Literature/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' books notably ran on AngstWhatAngst The [[Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie seventies TV show]], which wound up well into TheyJustDidntCare territory, derived plenty of its drama from things that didn't remotely happen in the books/in RealLife. The 2005 miniseries stuck closer to the letter of events but sometimes added emotional overtones where none had been, including mining angst from the books' characteristically restrained hints at the WellDoneSonGuy element in [[DaddysGirl Laura]]'s relationship with her father.

** Played straight with most other characters. Pinkie's parents are dead and she has [[StepfordSmiler deep issues]] due to growing up in an orphanage where she was looked down upon for her ethnicity and [[FantasticRacism Earth pony background]], Applejack and Rarity are {{Shellshocked Veteran}}s, Fluttershy had a HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood, Spike is all-around [[ButtMonkey hated by everypony]], etc. They don't tend to [[AngstWhatAngst actively angst too much]] due to the comedic nature of the series.

** Roy has significant more guilt and trauma in the first anime, and it's portrayed much more explicitly. This could be partly due to him being the one who [[spoiler: killed the Rockbell's]] in this version, but he has PTSD flashbacks to other parts of his actions in Ishval throughout the series (see: "Fullmetal vs. Flame").
** There's also Rose, who was little more than an extra in the manga. Who wound up [[spoiler:raped, kidnapped and traumatized to the point of becoming mute.]]

* WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated: Waspinator's odd speech and ButtMonkey mannerisms made him the comic relief in WesternAnimation/BeastWars. Here his mannerisms are a result of being locked in a penitentiary for a long time which gradually eroded his sanity to make him into a gibbering mess, and when bad things happen to him they also get played for drama as well as laughs. His lamentations at his lot in life are no longer odd fourth wall breaking moments, but the insane depressed ramblings of a broken bot.

* Peter in ''Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' films, especially ''Prince Caspian'', is far less confident and kingly than his book counterpart. ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'' also adds sub-plots where Lucy worries a lot about her looks and the consequences of worrying about it, Edmund angsts about his time as a traitor to the White Witch, and Caspian has daddy issues. The first movie also gives Edmund the psychological excuse of being the sibling most affected by their father being off fighting in UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo; in the books, the war is pretty much [[BlitzEvacuees just a device to get them all to a big strange house in the countryside]] and is barely if at all mentioned after the first page.
