** Similar situations exist in other leagues. The [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation NBA]] has the Charlotte Hornets and its de facto successor, the New Orleans Pelicans, and the [[UsefulNotes/MajorLeagueSoccer MLS]] has the San Jose Earthquakes and its own de facto successor, Houston Dynamo.
**Played straight in some cases like in the [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague NHL]], the current Winnipeg Jets is officially NOT the original Winnipeg Jets reborn - the Phoenix/Arizona Coyotes did not relinquish its original Winnipeg Jets history to the new Jets, only its name and colors.
*** And in the NBA, there were two separate versions of the Baltimore Bullets - one of them is the only dead NBA team to win an NBA Championship, the other is the current Washington Wizards.

* The [[AnimeFirst manga adaptation]] of ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' has little to do with the show--the names of Ahiru's friends were changed, Ahiru isn't a duck, Mytho isn't really a prince, Drosselmeyer never appears, and the only animal is Professor Cat, for some unexplained reason. The most unrecognizable is Edel, who goes from being a quiet, mysterious woman in doll-like clothing and a huge updo to an [[GenkiGirl energetic]] [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] who wears slinky dresses and her hair down--oh, and just happens to be [[spoiler:the BigBad of the manga]]. The consensus among fans range from "It's sort of funny I guess..." to [[FanonDiscontinuity pretending it doesn't exist at all]].

*''The Last Brony: Kingdom Hearts With a Black Sora'' is almost nothing like KingdomHearts. Black Sora and Black Riku have the same names as their original counterparts, but they are otherwise completely different characters. The Heartless and Keyblade do make an appearance, but they have very little effect on the plot. And the "similarities" end there.

* The anime adaption of Toshio Maeda's Nightmare Campus has almost nothing to do with the story of the manga, with the only similarities being that they both share characters called Masao, Esedess, Abe and Yuko.

* ''Manga/OsomatsuKun'' is about the misadventures of six rowdy brothers and their wacky cast of cohorts in Akatsuka Ward. ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'' more or less follows that description, but changes the brothers to [[{{NEET}} jobless]] [[ManChild manchildren]] , rids them of their sense of camaraderie and [[DivergentCharacterEvolution gives them all completely different personalities ]] and looks (which was their [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins primary joke]] back in the day]], demoted all of the side characters (especially the former {{Breakout Character}}s Iyami and Chibita) and exaggerates ''their'' personalities, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking changes the style of humor.]] The only way you can tell it's a sequel is when they mention it or when they [[RecycledScript do a plot]] from the old series.

* The author of the ''{{Literature/Alatriste}}'' novels, Arturo Pérez-Reverte, related in an interview his encounter with two screenwriters who wanted to "adapt" his character for the movie screen. Their proposal was to toss both plot and historical reality aside and make instead a drama about the relationship between Alatriste and the Queen of Spain (a person he never interacts with in the books), who would be revealed to have grown up in poverty with Alatriste before making it big and becoming queen.

* InUniverse example in ''{{Anime/Kochikame}}'': when a popular manga gets an anime adaptation, Ryotsu manages to change the adaption in such a way that the result is nothing more than an extended commercial.
