* Interesting case with ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry''. When the game was [[VideoGameRemake ported to PS2]], the original ending was changed into one where Hanyuu gets KilledOffForReal. Other adaptations used the original ending. Curiously, the author claims that the {{P|layStation2}}S2 ending is the "True" ending while the "normal" ending is the "Good" ending.

[[spoiler:In the film, Rachid just gets defeated when Ralph uses a firebreathing trick to burn off his eyebrows (and possibly blind him). In the book, he ends up falling to his death down the bottomless well Omar has Joan and Jack dangling over in the dungeon.]]

** The prince's mother is flat-out said to be dead here. While [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} the original film]] implied this was the case, it never directly specified it either. %% ** [[spoiler:The King.]] %% ** Cinderella's father is never said to be dead in most traditional versions of the story; he is merely, for better or for worse, too governed by the stepmother to do anything. Justified in that this is a remake of the animated film, which also killed him off.

* Brutally [[InvertedTrope inverted]] by [[spoiler: Han Solo]] in ''Franchise/StarWars'', he was originally alive in ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' adaption, but when the [[{{Canon}} canonical]] ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' came out, [[spoiler: He was [[{{Retcon}} retconned]] into [[KilledOffForReal outright killed by Kylo Ren]]]]. And not to mention, the adaption came ''earlier'' than the canon, making it not the case of SparedByTheAdaptation.
