* The 1920s stage adaptation of ''Theatre/{{Dracula|1924}}'' focuses on the portion of the novel set in London, leaving out the earlier parts set in Transylvania and Whitby and the later part in which the action returns to Transylvania. The earlier events still happened (at least the most plot-relevant bits, more or less) but are summarized in dialogue instead of being shown directly; the later part is dispensed with by having the vampire hunters successfully confront Dracula in London instead of letting him escape back to his homeland.

* ''Film/{{Eragon}}''. The movie adaptation butchered the entire plot. Even the characters who were supposed to be dwarves and elves were portrayed as just regular humans. This was due to ExecutiveMeddling, which felt that people would think they were ripping off Tolkien's creations (as opposed to the detractors who were already calling it a rip-off of ''Film/StarWars'' in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' dressing).

** The manga adaptation of ''Manga/DragonBallSuper'' is considerably shorter than the anime and the movies the first two story arcs are based on - the Battle of Gods story arc, which spanned 14 episodes in the anime, was only a single volume of the manga. However, even more extreme is the Resurrection F arc, which was about the same number of episodes. It was reduced to a single box of text briefly explaining the events that transpired before immediately moving on to the Universe 6 tournament.

* The anime adaptation for the ''VisualNovel/DiesIrae'' visual novel basically took a 75 hour DoorStopper of a story and attempts to fit it all into just 18 twenty minute episodes (17 if one discount episode 0 which was based on an epilogue story). Suffice to say, it cut out a lot of important scenes and information. Character development, motivation and worldbuilding is all but absent and the show still has some anime original scenes not found in the source material. It all leads to a very confusing show that only readers of the original novel could really have any chance of keeping up with.

* ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSouma'' is fairly faithful in it's first season to the manga. However in the second season, with a much shortened episode count, condenses or eliminates everything that is not a direct part of the Fall Tournament Arc. This leads to moments where pivotal moments in the creation of dishes, notably how Souma figured out a trick to use against Alice is merely a throwaway mention to something that happened off screen, but was a whole chapter itself in the manga.

Added DiffLines:

* The manga adaptation of ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'' condenses most of the events of Volumes 3-4 of the light novel, except for Chiyu becoming a Burst Linker, into a single chapter, having Haru tell Kuroyukihime a summary of what happened when she was away. Some readers suspect that this was meant to get to Volume 5 of the light novel, which wasn't adapted into the anime, more quickly.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'', the parodies of movies almost inevitably involve this, since a movie that's between one and a half and three hours ends up being compressed to four to eight pages, plus a splash page introducing the main characters. The degree to which this happens varies, since while some parodies generally include at least one panel for each major scene, others, such as ''Film/TheGreenMile'', cut out large parts of the movie.
