* The ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' reimagining ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'' has elements of this, as is perhaps the nature of reimaginings. TheStoryteller tends to depict the contestants more realistically and multidimensionally than the canon does, justified in-universe by her insider perspective. She also makes references to {{manipulative editing}} by the in-universe producers, who wanted the finished episodes to suggest that the teams don't get along as well as they do.

* The ''[[Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} Fate]]'' series and its various spin-offs delves into this from time to time, combining aspects of this and SadlyMythtaken due to the setting's use of countless historical and mythical figures. Just to name a few examples: [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Caster]] mentions the legends of Jason were embellished over time and the Jason she knew [[spoiler:as Medea]] was much more cowardly, and ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'' has Berserker of Black talk about how [[Literarure/{{Frankenstein}} a book written about her]] took some of the things that ''actually'' happened in her life [[spoiler:such as Dr. Frankenstein's initial idea to make a partner for her but scrapping the idea, and her tragic suicide]] were rewritten and {{Gender Flip}}ped to make her seem more like a straightforward monster.

** For example, an explanation of ''Literature/AlicesAdventureInWonderland'' as a trip to a horrible world where the rules of logic did not exist, and after ''Through the Looking Glass'', Alice starves to death [[MirrorChemistry because the chirality of her body's molecules has been reversed and thus proteins from Earth food can no longer bond with her]] (which is also an obscure reference to the original work, where Alice considered the very possibility).

** Colin Dexter's "A Case of Mis-Identity" is a retelling of "A Case of Identity" which starts off as almost identical to the original, save for the presence of Mycroft Holmes in the background. Only after Windibank (here called Wyndham) has fled and Holmes is explaining his reasoning does [[spoiler: Mycroft dismiss it as assumption built on assumption, and say that, having established Wyndham ''doesn't'' need money, he considers it far more likely that the fiance was invented by mother and daughter in order to use Holmes as a DetectivePatsy to discredit the stepfather. And then Watson announces they're ''both'' wrong: the fiance was real, he was mugged, and he has been in hospital ever since, unable to identify himself until earlier that day when Watson's treatment restored his memory and his voice. At which point Wyndham returns with his lawyers...]]

** The Nexus is theorised to be rather more complex than simply granting its inhabitants the illusion of their hearts' desires; instead [[spoiler:it shows them whatever makes them least likely to leave - whether this is something they want with all their heart or something to make them forget what they already have is dependent on the individual and their circumstances. It then [[LivingBattery harvests energy from them in order to keep moving.]]]] Both Jim and Guinan are troubled by the idea, but they both agree that [[TakeThat it makes a lot more sense than the poster child for]] InHarmsWay [[TakeThat to want nothing more than to settle down in a peaceful-but-boring idyll with some woman he knows nothing about, and never becoming dissatisfied or restless.]]
** The younger Spock's relationship with Uhura is, in this universe, [[spoiler:based entirely on logic, since Spock was under the impression that this was the reason for his parents' marriage. In his desire to emulate [[HappilyMarried what he saw in them]], he selected Uhura, and he's now having second thoughts.]]
