* A truly bizarre example of this occurred when New World Pictures brought over ''Anime/AngelsEgg''. Instead of giving it a straight dub (which would have been more or less impossible given the [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible nature of the film]]), they cut the film heavily and added about 45 minutes of ''live action'' footage. Retitled ''[[Film/InTheAftermathAngelsNeverSleep In The Aftermath: Angels Never Sleep]]'', it was released in 1988 to mixed reviews.

** The second Godzilla film, ''Film/GodzillaRaidsAgain'' (released in the United States as ''[[MarketBasedTitle Gigantis the Fire Monster]]''), managed to avoid this, suffering only the addition of considerable amounts of StockFootage. However, it was almost turned into a film called ''The Volcano Monsters'' that would have been a prime example of this trope. Read about it [[http://www.tohokingdom.com/web_pages/lost_projects/volcano_monsters.htm here]].

* The 4th ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' film, Celebi: The Voice of the Forest added three scenes to the English version. Two of them served to over-explain a plot point in the story. The other was a comedic Team Rocket scene that [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment served no purpose to the plot]].

* Likewise, ''{{Film/Looper}}'' is also a U.S.-China co-production, and the Chinese release had more screentime for scenes in Shanghai.

The method is most viable when the main action is done by PeopleInRubberSuits, (or {{Puppets|hows}},) allowing the adaptation's GreekChorus (or in some cases its ''stars'') [[LeadYouCanRelateTo to have similar sensibilities]] [[CulturalTranslation to the importing country]].

* ''FraggleRock'' - various markets (including the UK, which didn't redub the Muppet characters) had their own version of Doc. They all had Sprocket, though.
