* ''Anime/BrigadoonMarinAndMelan'': Is inspired by the Theatre/{{Brigadoon}} play, but the only thing they have in common is a VanishingVillage. It's in Japan instead of Scotland, the protagonist is a teenage school, girl instead of male hunters, there's robots, etc.

* When Creator/VertigoComics publish a series that shares a name with a Creator/DCComics property, that, and a few loose concepts, will be ''all'' it shares (with a few exceptions, such as ''ComicBook/AnimalMan'', ''ComicBook/SwampThing'', and ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol''). The most extreme example (if you don't count ''ComicBook/{{Sandman}}'') was ''Beware ComicBook/TheCreeper!'' which was about a 1920s Parisian surrealist who wore a costume vaguely similar to Jack Ryder's.

* ''Anime/TheMysteriousCitiesOfGold'' was theoretically adapted from a novel (''The King's Fifth'', by [[Literature/IslandOfTheBlueDolphins Scott O'Dell]]) but has almost nothing in common with it. There are characters named Zia, Esteban, and Mendoza, and they are looking for the Cities of Gold; that is more or less where the similarities end. In the book, Esteban is a teenage mapmaker, Zia is a tough tomboy who volunteers to help the Spanish expedition, Mendoza is not a nice person, there are no medallions or hidden temples or puzzles or mysterious Olmecs at all, and so on.

* "[[Fanfic/TheConversionBureau New Universe Three: The Friendship Virus]]" manages to simultaneously be a MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfiction ''and'' a [[TheConversionBureau Conversion Bureau]] story in name only.

* Basically every single character in HogwartsSchoolOfPrayerAndMiracles, but the Dursleys and Voldemort are some of the most glaringly obvious examples. (The Dursleys are a nice, loving family, Petunia is a carreer-woman, and Voldemort is [[spoiler:an internet-troll mocking atheist stereotypes by deliberately posting exaggerated versions of them on his Reddit-account.]])
* ''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.

* ''FanFic/BartTheGeneral'' has very few characters from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''[[note]]Homer (who starts being called "Omarn" around Episode 3), Bart (who starts being called "Berton" around Episode 2), Marge, Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns, and Smithers appear. Lisa (who is green for some reason), Rod, and Todd also cameo in the first episode only to die. Millhouse is referred to but never actually appears[[/note]] and is generally nothing like the show. This becomes more noticeable in Episodes 2 and 3, which show that the world of Springfield -- er, ''Duckberg'' -- is completely different and filled with bizarre side-characters. The plot is instead something about [[Series/{{Neighbours}} Toadfish and Stonefish]] coming in to Springfield to "take over," [[Series/HouseMD Dr. House]] falling out of a living airplane, and some... cult-thing ran by a purple jaguar killing people over a video tape Bart/Berton made of Marge in the shower. It could very well involve completely original characters and still make the same amount of sense it does. [[MindScrew Which is to say, very little.]]
