** The sequence describing the transformation of Isengard from a green treegarden to an iron hell compresses 150 years of slow chang (before the books actually begins) into ''five minutes''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheTenCommandments'' skips the whole "wandering in the desert for 40 years" part, which admittedly wouldn't make for exciting filmmaking, opting to make Moses 40 years older when he returns from the mountain.


Added DiffLines:

* InUniverse with the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' episode "The Ember Island Players", where the play version of the Gaang's adventures skips over some of the more boring parts (which just so happen to be episodes the fans would rather forget). And the ending, which is... [[KillEmAll rather different]] than what the Gaang hopes to see.

* ''VideoGame/DotHackGU Trilogy'' turns three 20+ hour games into a 90 minute movie. A lot of the first game made it in, but once they got through with that, they winged it and pretty much revamped the plot from there on.

Added DiffLines:

* The 2009-2010 ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga'' AlternateContinuity miniseries was this, as while the original plan was for the event was indeed for it to run for six months, it was also going to span four titles, too, not just one. Additionally, there's a lot of what did happen in those six issues.

* The movie adaptation of ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' attempted to cover three separate books, along with a subplot from later in the series, and many scenes made up just for the movie. Needless to say, a lot of the books' plot had to go.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid: The Twin Snakes'' excises the VR missions from the original versions of the game, meaning Snake can't credit his training on board the ''Discovery'' for getting him to the elevator up to Shadow Moses in a timely manner.

* Since ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' was a very fast-paced show, they had to cut out a lot of content to fit it's two-and-a-half hour run-time, most notably [[spoiler: the entire subplot with Graham and his familiars]].[[note]]Mind you, the movie's status as [[RecursiveCanon TSAB Propaganda]] justifies that cut since [[spoiler: it would be rather compromising if they showed a high-ranking officer condemning an innocent girl to being frozen for eternity]].[[/note]] This is especially notable since the first movie was a case of AdaptationDistillation.

* The manga adaptation of LunarEternalBlue reduced entire character arcs from the game into page long summaries. In fact, most of the content from the games aside that weren't directly related to Hiro and Lucia's relationship were cut or abridged, and [[spoiler: Ghaleon]], an important character, was cut out completely.

Added DiffLines:

* The Creator/FleischerStudios [[WesternAnimation/GulliversTravels adaptation]] of ''Literature/GulliversTravels'' only adapts the first voyage (and [[InNameOnly loosely at that]]), where Gulliver winds up shipwrecked on Lilliput, and leaves out everything else.
