* The ''Film/DCExtendedUniverse'' version of Superman is more angsty and brooding due to having to conceal his powers as a kid to getting bad press despite his best efforts and thus, is much less idealistic and optimistic than others versions.

* The original team in ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' were longtime friends and straight-laced students, helping charities and kids build their self-estimate. The version in ''Film/PowerRangers2017'' are outcasts and/or dealing with personal demons and don't know each other before the movie. More specifically, Jason is a former football star who injured his knew while fleeing from the cops during a prank and crashing, and is under house arrest and lost his father's respect as a result; Kimberly's a former cheerleader who was [[spoiler:a former AlphaBitch who had a HeelRealization after humiliating one of her friends]]; Billy's autistic; Trini's TheQuietOne [[spoiler:and questioning her sexuality]]; and Zack is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who constantly skips class [[spoiler:because he's taking care of his sick mother alone and is afraid of her dying while he's gone.]] Even Zordon gets it - you'd think the AndIMustScream nature of being trapped in another dimension and only able to communicate as a fuzzy graphic of your face is enough, but he was the leader of the previous Rangers, was there when they were betrayed and killed by one of their own, and is considerably less sure of himself and the Rangers, with whom he has a rockier relationship. Jason even notes at one point that though he hides it, he's as afraid as the teens are.

* ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' adds more conflict for Dorothy at the beginning of the story than ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'' has. While the book portrays Kansas as a drab place, Dorothy herself is a {{Cheerful Child}} and the cyclone that blows her to Oz occurs almost immediately. In the film, before the cyclone, she has to deal with [[AndYouWereThere witchy neighbor]] Miss Gulch trying to have her dog Toto killed, feels ignored by her busy Uncle Henry and Aunt Em, and longs to escape to [[IWantSong "a place where there isn't any trouble."]] This gives her more of a character arc than she has in the book, as her journey through Oz teaches her to appreciate her home and her aunt and uncle's love for her.

* Franchise/SpiderMan in the movies is a lot more somber. Peter Parker was always as angsty as he was in the films, but usually he puts that angst aside when in his Spider-Man persona; not so here.
** ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' is much more angsty than the preceding films, adding the baggage of missing parents on top of Peter's responsibility and love interest woes. However, it also turns Peter's snarkiness when fighting as Spidey.

in the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'' where the angst is pretty much wall-to-wall.
** ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' is much series makes it a ZigZaggedTrope: He has more angsty than the preceding films, problems, adding the baggage of missing parents on top of Peter's responsibility and love interest woes. (Other versions tend to gloss over just ''why'' he's living with an aunt and uncle at the beginning. ''This'' Peter has to solve the mystery of his missing parents, who turn out to have been murdered for their role in the science that would eventually lead to radioactive spiders and genetically altered super villains.) However, it also turns returns Peter's snarkiness when fighting as Spidey.Spidey, and we even see him and Gwen Stacy ''enjoying being together'' in a way we never saw with the always-strained Peter/MJ relationship in the original trilogy. Of course, [[spoiler: Gwen meets a fate similar to her comic counterpart]] in the end.

** Sansa Stark. Not that she doesn't undergo TraumaCongaLine in the books, but her wedding night rape with Ramsay is entirely native and exclusive to the show as a result of her character's storyline becoming a composite with that of Jeyne Poole's in the book.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' is quite similar to the original stories. In the original comics Peter spent at least half the time moping about how he was essentially life's punching bag, especially in Stan Lee's original run which the show was in part directly based on. In the cartoon itself Peter still spend at least half the time moping about how he was essentially life's punching bag, but kind of has a more of a positive outlook. Even as the comics and movies increasingly follow a rule that says "there's no such thing as enough {{Wangst}}," what is Peter's first scene? As he webslings his way through the city, he says "Tell me there's something better. Go ahead, try."

* In ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', Captain Picard deeply hates the Borg, due to having been assimilated by them once, and has to overcome the urge to go Captain Ahab on them. 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.
