* In ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', WesternAnimation/BugsBunny and WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse and WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck and WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck are Enforced examples of ThoseTwoGuys. When the production staff at Touchstone Pictures (an alternate label for Creator/{{Disney}}) went to Creator/WarnerBrothers for permission to use ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' characters in their film, Warner Brothers only agreed to let them use the A-listers Bugs and Daffy on the condition that they both receive ''exactly'' as much screentime as Mickey and Donald, respectively. The surefire way to honor that agreement was to have both characters share every scene with their {{Alternate Company Equivalent}}s, with neither character appearing without the other.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' enforces GentleGiant with Hector. Hector's mother always makes sure that he's extremely calm, gentle, and almost devoid of emotion (his diary reads "I must not laugh, I must not get overexcited, I must not shout, I must not sneeze.") As she explains, she does so to protect everyone else from him, because he's strong enough to effortlessly destroy all of Elmore and ''will'' do so if he has a fit.

* AdaptationalModesty is practically mandatory in adaptations that strive to reach a general audience. Even if an actor is comfortable with appearing naked onscreen, extended scenes of full-frontal nudity pretty much ''guarantee'' a film an "R" rating, which makes a film much harder to market. Especially mandatory if a character is underage; while putting naked underaged characters in a novel or comic book might fly, it most definitely ''doesn't'' in a movie or television series, where ([[DawsonCasting with a few exceptions]]) they have to be played by real underaged actors.



* CensorshipTropes: You can't ignore the censors without consequences.



* {{Flynning}} for theatrical productions, as realistic swordplay would not only be too dangerous, but also remove the audience's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief in having them worry about the actors.



* SecondaryCharacterTitle: It shows up in plays around the time of Creator/WilliamShakespeare, specifically those that dealt with historical monarchs and rulers. Because of the Elizabethan era's rigid social hierarchy, characters of higher social status had to set themselves apart from the commoners by speaking in verse, and plays always had to be named for the character of the highest social ranking--even if they weren't actually the protagonist.

Yet be careful about assuming these just from looking at the final work. Many things can happen behind the scenes, and only WordOfGod, or some other reliable source, can truly tell us if this happens or not. In many cases, the writers did want to include these elements.

* Being forced to {{Bowdlerise}} a work. The enforcers could be MoralGuardians, government requirements, or ExecutiveMeddling.
* When fiction deals with the history of some region, it may sometimes need RoseTintedNarrative to get mainstream success in that region. In worse cases, Rose Tinted Narrative will be required for [[BannedInChina publication]].
** The DeepSouth in the first several decades of film got a lot of rose-tinting.
** Also happens with other works that require the authorization of their subjects--authorized biographies, for instance.
** Under UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode, priests, ministers, and other religious authorities had to be portrayed respectfully without exception. Fittingly, one of the co-authors of the Code's actual text was a Jesuit Catholic priest--and while he acknowledged that not all "ministers of religion" were worthy of respect, mockery of any one of them would (supposedly) encourage sacrilegious attitudes.

* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle is all but unavoidable in TV series if they run long enough.
** LeftHanging can easily be forced on a TV series if it gets ScrewedByTheNetwork.
* RatedMForMoney is often caused by ExecutiveMeddling.



** The AudibleSharpness in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' was going to be averted, until test audiences had trouble accepting the absence of that sound.



* A SpiritualSuccessor may be created because a legal dispute renders a true sequel impossible.
* Any medium that relies on a small amount of people on a hectic time table will occasionally not be able to do the research correctly, and make some mistakes. Especially if they're on a contract.
* Any work that [[MerchandiseDriven exists to promote or sell a product]] (such as a line of toys) will be constrained by product availability, turnover, popularity and gimmicks. {{Transformers}} is probably the most successful example.

Michael Kross legally couldn't shoot his sex scenes with Creator/KateWinslet until he had turned 18. A very common example is to avoid Union regulations and/or actual laws in regards to youth actors.
** ''Series/GameOfThrones'' takes this even further. In [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire the books]], Daenerys Targaryen is 13 when she is [[ArrangedMarriage married off]] to [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Khal Drogo]], and eventually becomes pregnant with his child--just as she turns 14. She was aged up significantly to avoid the MoralGuardians, but as the time of her birth is tied to [[GreatOffscreenWar Robert's Rebellion]], the rest of the cast had to be aged up as well. Of course, this allows a few ''more'' characters to get that delicious high-skin {{Sexposition}} time, so it works out, we guess?
* PacManFever. Using a modern game would involve licensing or ProductPlacement agreements. Generic 80s arcade sounds do not.
* PostScriptSeason: This is almost never something planned by the writers. If a show is renewed, it'll get written for, but the writers then have to work their way out of the constraints of the original story.

* FiveFiveFive: Fictional phone numbers and addresses may need to avoid corresponding to ones in RealLife.
* NoBudget: When the creators are limited by budget constraints.
* WhiteMaleLead is usually employed because the entertainment industry feels (rightly or wrongly) that in order to appeal to whites, they need a white lead because white people won't relate to a minority.
* PrecisionFStrike shows up in many movies whose producers had to fight for "PG-13" ratings, since the MPAA's rules on profanity mean that a movie arbitrarily receives an "R" rating if it uses the word "fuck" more than once.
