* ''Theatre/TheWiz'' typically portrays Evillene, the Wicked Witch of the West, as the [[http://thewizthemusical.com/productions/bway75/photos_zoom.php?var=1444 ugliest]] witch Dorothy meets. In the Creator/{{NBC}} version of the musical, Evillene (played by Music/MaryJBlige) actually looks [[http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/season-2015-pictured-mary-j-blige-as-evillene-news-photo/497914970 rather glamorous]] for a wicked witch.

** Harvey Bullock in the comics is a overweight slob who constantly appeared at work in disheveled clothes. While Gordon called him slovenly on the show, he's not as fat and is more well dressed.

** Clemont is given traditional glasses rather than the OpaqueNerdGlasses he wears in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY''. This means his blue eyes are seen constantly and he looks less creepy or nerdy, though occasionally he has ScaryShinyGlasses in the anime.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Victoria}}'' ran into the issue where critics and some viewers felt the actors cast were too attractive for the real-life characters they portrayed, in this case beautiful Creator/JennaColeman was cast as the cute-when-she-was-young-but-no-raving-beauty Queen Victoria, and Creator/RufusSewell played a virile, sexy Lord Melbourne whereas the original was well past his prime by the time he and Victoria met.

** Speaking of ''Film/{{Manhunter}}'', Freddy Lounds is played by the handsome Stephen Lang, who is most certainly not lumpy, ugly, and short with buck teeth like Lounds is described in the novel.
