Not so much the cover itself, but for the fact that it was possible for the Devil to win.

* The animated movie version of ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood]]'' was supposedly so poorly received by the creator, Creator/HirohikoAraki, that he has refused to release it on home video ever since its 2007 theatrical release. But there is also the version that it happened because of Shueisha terminating their relationship with the film production company [[{{Creator/APPP}} A.P.P.P.]] as a result of the controversy surrounding the references to the Quran in the prior Jojo OVA series.

* Creator/HayaoMiyazaki would like to stress that New World Pictures's {{Macekre}} version of ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'', titled ''Warriors of the Wind'', is much better off forgotten. So much so that for years he refused to allow any of his other works to be dubbed. It took Creator/{{Disney}} itself, Miramax's then-parent company, agreeing to not change a single scene before he would release the rest. Studio Ghibli was so serious about this that one of the producers mailed a ''katana'' to Miramax's Harvey Weinstein, along with a note reading [[{{Pun}} "NO CUTS"]] upon the agreement.

* The son of Carlo Collodi, the author of the original ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio'' book, hated the [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} Disney adaptation]] for playing fast and loose with his dads story, and even unsuccessfully tried to sue the studio for misrepresenting his fathers work.
* Per word of Creator/ChuckJones in his book ''Chuck Jones Conversations'' (who did his own animated adaptations of Kipling's stories), Kipling's daughter hated [[Disney/TheJungleBook the Disney adaptation]] of [[Literature/TheJungleBook The Jungle Book]] for being an InNameOnly adaptation of her father's work.

* The descendants of Creator/VictorHugo bashed Disney in an open letter to the Libération newspaper for their ancestor getting no mention on the advertisement posters for [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame the Disney adaptation]] of ''Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', and they harsly criticized the film itself as a vulgar commercialization of Victor Hugo's story.

* The {{animated adaptation}} of ''[[Literature/CharlottesWeb Charlotte's Web]]'' made by Creator/HannaBarbera was despised by E.B. White, the author of the original book, because he said that "the story is interrupted every few minutes so that somebody can sing a jolly song. I don't care much for jolly songs. The Blue Hill Fair, which I tried to report faithfully in the book, has become a Disney World, with 76 trombones. But that's what you get for getting embroiled in Hollywood." White's wife wrote a letter to [[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry Gene Deitch]] (who, ironically, is friends with White) in 1977 saying: "We have never ceased to regret that your version of ''Charlotte's Web'' never got made. The Hanna-Barbera version has never pleased either of us... a travesty..."

-->"Before we started our film, I discovered that Kipling's daughter was still alive and called her. In an elegant, British Dowager-like voice, she confirmed my pronunciation (of Mowgli's name) and added "and, I hate Walter Disney." It was the only time I ever heard anybody call him Walter. In her lifetime, she said nobody ever pronounced anything but Mauwgli."

** In contrast, Kojima has had mixed feelings about ''VideoGame/SnakesRevenge'', as seen in the above interview, claiming that he doesn't consider it to be a "[[http://nintendoeverything.com/kojima-despises-mgs-nes-doesnt-mind-snakes-revenge-led-to-future-mgs-games/ bad game]]", although he did refer to it jokingly as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QC5TfLemOY "a bit of a crap game" during GDC 2009]] due to the fact that he wasn't involved in the game's development.
