* The UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis version of the ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' video game averts this. According to the holiday 1993 episode of the British video game review series, ''Bad Influence!'' [[note]]Series 2, episode 15[[/note]], it was scheduled for a 1993 holiday release. However, due to programming problems, the game was delayed until June 1994. Thanks to this decision, the game is [[NoProblemWithLicensedGames a fun, polished platformer, with sprites looking just like the movie]], as with many of Disney's licensed games.

* ''VideoGame/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'' for the UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} is an infamous example; the game was made in only six weeks so it could be released on time for the holidays and tie in with the then-popular movie, leading to UsefulNotes/TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983.

The result was a game so bad it is often cited as the worst to ever be released, and it became one factor behind UsefulNotes/TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983.

** If you pay some attention, many fighting games have recently been rushed for competition play, to the point one could coin the term "EVO Rushed". Notable examples are VideoGame/BlazBlueCentralFiction and its case of NoDubForYou, [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Tekken 7]], VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite, and VideoGame/BlazBlueCrossTagBattle.

* Not only was ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Pahkitew Island]'' produced at the same time as ''All-Stars'', but the season never went through any revisions or rewrites. Some questionable things were left in, including how [[Recap/TotalDramaSkyFall Sugar managed to get Jasmine eliminated]].

* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' wasn't rushed for Christmas(or any holiday, really), but was pushed out early in February 2016 to get the basic multiplayer in the hands of players to practice for EVO and other tournaments in the summer. This came at the cost of various features not being available in the game until March[[note]]Challenges/Trials, Lobbies bigger than 2 players, and the in-game shop.[[/note]], and the game's story mode not being available until June.

And this is not even getting into Arcade Mode and endings, which wouldn't see the light of the day until ''Arcade Edition'' arrived in January 2018.

* The ''Literature/WarriorCats'' OEL manga ''Graystripe's Adventure'' - the first of the manga spin-offs of the series - was originally meant to be a single volume manga called ''The Lost Warrior''. Then somebody at [=HarperCollins=] had the idea to release it on the same day as ''The Sight'', the first book in the upcoming new arc. The artist was only a third of the way done, so since he was unable to finish it in that amount of time, it ended up being split into three shorter volumes with the first one being released on that day. Later manga in the series followed suit by splitting the story into three parts as well.

* Part of the tension which led to Music/RogerWaters firing keyboardist Richard Wright during production of Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/TheWall'' was that the band were promised a bonus by Creator/ColumbiaRecords to deliver the album on schedule in December 1979 in time for the holiday shopping season, meaning Roger had to ask a uninspired/unreliable/unprofessional Wright (who, granted, was going through marital difficulties) to cut short his vacation in Greece to finish the keyboard parts. Wright was frustrated at the decision, presumably gave Waters a hard time about it, and Waters decided to tell the band and management that either Wright would be fired or Waters would leave, taking ''TheWall'' with him. As Pink Floyd were in desperate financial straits at the time, were already a little agitated at Richard's behavior and needed a hit album to restore their fortunes, they fulfilled Waters' wishes and let Wright go [[note]]though Richard stayed as a salaried member of Pink Floyd for the Wall tour, and as a result was the only member to make any money from the tour, as the other three pitched in their own earnings to finance the expensive, elaborate, tour[[/note]].
