** In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'', and ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' and ''[[VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU U]]'', the background music adds more percussion when you're riding Yoshi.
** In ''VideoGame/MarioKart7'', being in first place and at full speed adds extra instruments to the track - [[HardModePerks but only on 150cc.]]

Yoshi. In ''New U'', holding a Baby Yoshi adds their singing to the music.

* In-universe example in ''{{Holes}}'' -- the lyrics to the pig song get changed from the original Latvian when sung in English so that they still rhyme and preserve much of the original meaning.

* ''Theatre/{{Spamalot}}'' changed the lyrics of ''A Divas Lament'' - in which the female lead mentions not having won any awards - after the show did quite well at the Tony awards.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', the background music that plays on the main menu screen gains more instruments and a richer sound the further you get in the game and the more characters you meet.

** When touring with DavidBowie, "Hurt" was performed as a duet between Trent Reznor and Bowie and used a drastically different arrangement.

* ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' used a [[RearrangeTheSong remix]] of the ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' theme tune with new lyrics. ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' uses another remix, which adds the line "Rangers Together Samurai Forever", and removes all references to "Mighty Morphin'". The seasons in between are not an example of this trope, as they had completely new theme tunes.

The seasons in between are not same is done with the next season, ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'', except replacing "Samurai" with "Megaforce". ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' diverges further, as it uses an example of this trope, as they had completely entirely new theme tunes.arrangement for the verses but only a slightly-remixed chorus.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'', the music that plays in the single-player mode's HubLevel adds more instrumentation as you defeat a boss and unlock a new set of levels.

** Some of the songs on the GiveMyRegardsToBroadStreet soundtrack fall under this. For instance, "Ballroom Dancing" has an entire extra verse from its original "Tug of War" vs.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/KarmaflowTheRockOperaVideoGame'' features one of these as a puzzle where activating instruments adds them to the background music. Another is during [[CounterpointDuet final duets]]; the game is structured in a way to allow you to pick one of the singers, changing lyrics and melody based on your choice.

* E from {{Eels}} seems to relish dramatically different live arrangements for older songs - for instance, the ''Daisies Of The Galaxy'' version of "I Like Birds" is laid-back and based around acoustic guitar, but at some point they started doing a much faster, noisier electric version live, and have kept playing it that way every since. During the Eels With Strings tours even songs that were originally fast paced rock or upbeat pop were played slower and more stripped down (and of course, with a string quartet).

* ''Series/KnotsLanding'' used a different arrangement of its main theme each season, but several times, the instrumentation was completely overhauled. In fact, the one constant, besides the main melody, was the saxophone as the lead instrument. The early seasons, like parent series ''Dallas', used brass-heavy disco arrangements. In 1983, a jazzier resetting of the theme debuted and was subsequently rearranged each season thereafter. Then, seasons 9 and 10 used slower, more sensual arrangements layered with strings and flutes. Seasons 11, 12, and 13 used a more upbeat arrangement that kept some of the sensuality of the previous version. For the final season, a new arrangement was made that returned to the basic format of those used in the mid-1980s.
