If this happens on the original work ''itself'', see ArtifactTitle. Compare DolledUpInstallment. See also OldGuardVersusNewBlood. A TransplantedCharacterFic may often feel like this.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Literature/BooksOfMaccabees 3rd Maccabees]]'' from the apocryphal books not included in the Jewish and Protestant canons of the Old Testament do not feature anything about Judah Maccabee or UsefulNotes/TheMaccabeanRevolt. Instead, it is a prequel story about the Jews dealing with King Philopator in the 3rd Century BC as he attempts to defile the Jewish Temple by entering into the Holy of Holies.

Other than sharing the name, use of a mask, and playing a flute, the Skull Kid of the movie, known to s has nothing in common with his game counterpart, a psychologically unstable wood-zombie that was covered in orange rags and had no backstory prior to his transformation.

* ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'' (a novella of ''Literature/TheStormlighArchive''): 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.

*Disney's ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' shares very little with the novel that inspired it. Esmeralda is a street-smart adult instead of a clueless teenager. Phoebus genuinely loves her, isn't engaged, and isn't as much of a Jerkass, and everyone else is a lot nicer. Most subplots are cut, many other characters are missing (like Fleur-de-Lys, Jehan and Pierre, among others) and everyone but the villain manages to survive until the end.



* The ''Franchise/DisneyFairies'' Tinker Bell movies were extremely different from the books in that they got rid of most of the book characters altogether and completely changed the personalities of all those who were left (including the titular character). Examples include Clarion, who stopped going by a nickname and used her full name and tile instead, and who stayed out of the majority of the action, unlike the books. Vidia became a main character and her major jerkass moments were excluded, making her a much sweeter person. It also got rid of the plot of the books in favor of more family friendly stories and gave Tinker Bell a twin sister.

* ''La gioconda'' is allegedly based on ''Angelo, tyran de Padoue'' by Victor Hugo; they are every bit as different as chalk and cheese (e.g., Hugo's play is set in Padua (''Padoue'' in French) whereas ''La gioconda'' takes place in Venice).

* There's an {{Animesque}} [[http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/luluzinhateen002.jpg Brazilian spin off]] of ''ComicStrip/LittleLulu'' where the characters in question are teens. The plot is basically a generic teen SliceOfLife (with some drama here and there) with characters whose only similarities with the original are their names. And the original cartoons produced by FamousStudios in the 1940s bore almost no resemblance to the comics, keeping only the title character Lulu (though [[DemotedToExtra some of her friends did appear in a few shorts. Very few though.]]).
