* Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin ''[[http://www.ursulakleguin.com/Earthsea.html loathed]]'' the Creator/SciFiChannel's ''Series/{{Earthsea}}'' miniseries, purportedly based on her ''Literature/{{Earthsea}}'' novels. She was particularly angered by the TV creators' false claims that she approved of the adaptation. Calling one of the genre's staunchest feminists "Miss Le Guin" didn't help either.

* Creator/LoisDuncan, in an interview included with reprints of her novel ''Literature/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer'', stated that she felt [[Film/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer the film adaptation]] to be a mockery of the book, to the point where, when she started watching it, she thought she'd wandered into the wrong theater at first. That's before getting into the RealitySubtext -- her daughter Kaitlyn Arquette had been murdered as a teenager, so seeing the fairly bloodless suspense story she wrote turned into a teen SlasherMovie hit especially close to home, causing her to remark that the film was [[http://articles.baltimoresun.com/1997-11-19/features/1997323052_1_lois-duncan-kait-duncan-wrote "trivializing violence and making murder seem like a game."]] She did, however, admittedly appreciate how the film produced more interest in her work and, in particular, her daughter's murder (which was, and still is, an unsolved case that she spent much of her later years trying to get reopened).

-->''To be honest, I'm not very happy. The original story is complete as it is, so it's outrageous to add or modify the images and script. However, games are a different media so I think it's fine. The thing I hate most about the games are that even though they use the name (Gundam SEED Destiny), the contents are totally no good... There are many people who think that way, and there are many staff members who work really hard on making (these games), so I don't object. However, spare me from the people who come and go "Director, you're happy too aren't you?"'' -- '''Mitsuo Fukuda'''

* Creator/DougTenNapel apparently disliked the ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' cartoon (though not as much as the sequels to the first two games that were made without his involvement). This may have something to do with the way the cartoon handled Bob the Killer Goldfish's {{evilutionary biologist}} schtick and/or turned Princess What's Her Name into a tough, independent {{action girl}} (evolution and feminism being two things self-professed conservative Christian [=TenNapel=] is not shy about his dislike for).

* Aversion: While Creator/AlanMoore doesn't like any of the movies of his work, there ''is'' one--and only one--adaptation he has gone on record as approving: the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' episode "For the Man Who Has Everything", which was an adaptation of his story from ''Superman Annual #11''.

* ''DGrayMan'' was this to the manga creator, Hoshino katsura. The original anime adaptation ran from 06-08, with 103 episodes. And it made changes from the source material, through adding filler, or making changes to scenes and characters. When the studio wanted to make Hallow, and release it with the manga, Hoshino told them no. She hated the changes the last anime made, and didn't think a new anime would be successful. So she had to be heavily persuaded to give Hallow a green-light. But now, she is supervising the anime, possibly to make sure they stay on-point with her story and characters.

* Riyoko Ikeda disowned the ending of the animated adaptation of ''[[Manga/RoseOfVersailles Rose of Versailles]]'' for having Alain [[CallToAgriculture leave the army to become a farmer]]. To drive home the point, the sequel ''Eroica'' starts with Alain having been discharged for political reasons but still in Paris, and he rejoins the army early in the story after impressing UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte himself.

* Similarly to the Live Action TV listing below, Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin disowned ''Anime/TalesFromEarthsea'', a Creator/StudioGhibli adaptation of some of the ''[[Literature/EarthseaTrilogy Earthsea]]'' books. Her initial response can be read [[http://www.ursulakleguin.com/GedoSenkiResponse.html here.]] However, she did stress she liked many things about it:

* Although Greg Farshtey, author of the ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' comics and books, has said negative things about the original [[DirectToVideo direct to video]] trilogy, his usual stance was that they're okay but the books and comics are better. However, his creative differences with the creators of the third movie (who made Vakama a traitor, throwing away his previous {{character development}}) reportedly made him very upset, and though he argued against the story's direction, he was only distantly involved with the movies, so the writers' word overrode his. According to him, if he had the opportunity to get rid of one part of the storyline, this would be it.

* Masami Tsuda despised what [[Creator/StudioGainax Gainax]] did to the animated version of ''Manga/KareKano'' so much that she had it cancelled after one season. She wanted a more character and plot-driven story (and in fact, the manga becomes ''very'' dark as it goes on), but director Creator/HideakiAnno had inserted lots of screwball comedy to try for some balance, as he had just finished working on the rather dark and self-psychoanalytical ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' (for reference, Anno suffers from chronic depression). Tsuda then got so upset that she demanded for Anno to be fired from the adaptation, at which point Anno straight-up quit, forcing Creator/{{Gainax}} to abruptly end the anime [[GeckoEnding gecko-style]].
