* ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' gradually devolves into what may as well be an original story with some characters who coincidentally share their names with characters from ''NewspaperComic/CalvinAndHobbes''.

* 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.



* Any books "written by" Creator/VCAndrews (Actually her ghostwriter) after her death that weren't either started or outlined by her (It's not exactly known how many stories she outlined), or don't follow the standard GenerationalSaga. It's been argued that all of the recent "Andrews" books have nothing left of her in them (Particularly the one-off books and the much loathed teen paranormal books).

* ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'' has an in-universe variety with Tashikk. Technically, it's part of the Azir Empire; in practice, they're off doing their own thing and only get in line with the rest of the Empire when they feel like it.

* That wasn't even the only time Hasbro did something like that. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRzVPUHiqvc This commercial]] places their short-lived ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' line of toys alongside ''Franchise/GIJoe'', in what looks like some WeirdCrossover. (Does it even make sense for "A Real American Hero" to have foreign members?)

* The purpose of TheBBC Radio 4 series ''The Rivals'' is to showcase 19th century detectives who aren't Literature/SherlockHolmes. However, most of them take great liberties with setting, characterisation, and so on, although they generally keep the character names, who did it and the gimmick they used (while often completely reinventing the motive). Some of them even change the detective's idiosyncrasies, such as making Martin Hewitt a "society detective" who has a friendly rivalry with a French master criminal who doesn't appear in the original story (or ''any'' Martin Hewitt stories) at all.

* Likewise, how the different traditions or denominations in Christianity sometimes see each other (particularly how Evangelical Protestants may view Catholics and Orthodox for adding extra-biblical tradition, and how Orthodox sometimes view Protestants for rejecting it), or how traditionalist/conservative Christians see more liberal/modernist believers.

* Subverted in ''Anime/GaReiZero''. The first episode introduces an entirely new crew of {{Badass}} main characters, completely different from the ones in the [[Manga/GaRei manga]]. [[spoiler: The episode ends with Yomi appearing and [[KillEmAll taking them all out]].]] Turns out [[spoiler: the anime ''is'' related to the manga in that it centers around Yomi's StartOfDarkness.]]

** ''Anime/TenchiMuyoWarOnGeminar'' has extremely loose connections to the Tenchi franchise. The main character, Kenshi, is said to be Tenchi's younger half-brother, but that's the closest it gets. In fact, the series' title in Japan was ''Saint Knight's Tale'', and was created by Masaki Kajishima as a very loose spinoff to his Tenchi franchise. FUNimation changed the title for marketing purposes and to better establish it as a part of the Tenchi series.

* Disney's ''Disney/{{Hercules}}''. Due to the sheer amount of changes made from the source material, the only things this movie has in common with the original [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Heracles myth]] is that they both star a super strong demigod protagonist and share a couple of similar plot points and settings. Heck, it feels less like an adaptation of the myth and more like Film/SupermanTheMovie and Film/{{Rocky}} [[RecycledInSpace mashed up and set in Ancient Greece]]. See its own SadlyMythtaken [[SadlyMythtaken/{{Hercules}} subpage]] for how the film (and other Hercules adaptations) differ in so many ways from the original myth.
