* ''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.

* ''Webcomic/{{Megamanspritecomic}}'' has hardly anything to do with the ''Franchise/MegaMan'' canon, featuring its own characterization and story.

* 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.

* ''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.]]
