* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ''Franchise/{{Animorphs}}'' are ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}''. Well, the toys are, technically. In 1999, Hasbro released a small toyline based on the popular book series and included them in their ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' action figure line, complete with the familiar logo in the commercials. (Likely, they just weren't large enough to warrant their own line, seeing as only 17 of the Animorphs toys were made.

* ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'' (aka ''Kirby of the Stars'' in Japan) isn't really about Kirby, despite the fact that the [[ThemeSong theme song]] says so. He's BadassAdorable and occasionally causes mischief, but doesn't have enough personality to carry the show as a central character. The real focus comes from his two friends, the townsfolk, and [[BigBad King Dedede.]]

* ''Everything'' about Bart Allen from the New 52 compared to his previous incarnation. The original Bart Allen was Impulse/Kid Flash II, and was Barry Allen's FunPersonified grandson from the future. He had Thawne blood in him and used the Speed Force for his powers, and consistently worked with the Flash (Wally West, his cousin). The New 52 Bart Allen is revealed to be a kid named Barr Tor from the future (Bart Allen being an alias) and is in no way related to Barry Allen and does not use the Speed Force. He's the ''first'' Kid Flash, despite ahving never, ''ever'' worked with the Flash to any degree. And he goes from FunPersonified to DarkerAndEdgier with a backstory of how he started a galactic war, and he is eventually put on trial for war crimes.
