What happens when a work of fiction, so old or so well-known that [[ItWasHisSled knowing its ending doesn't even count I I as a spoiler]], is adapted into a new installment? Mostly the adapters choose to keep the main plot points, so the twist ending will stay, and thus there will be no twist at all. But that's not the only option!

* In ''Film/TallTale'', John Henry actually '''loses''' his legendary contest with the steel-driving machine, though at the end he mentions looking into a rematch.

'''As a sub trope of MetaTwist, it's never too much warning that ''HERE BE SPOILERS'''''. In fact, these spoilers are even more dangerous than the usual variety, since it's impossible to not spoil the twist ending from the moment the name of the work is stated if you're familiar with the original, as well as spoil yourself on ''both'' versions if you aren't. Proceed with caution.

Contrast with ItWasHisSled, the trope that leads to this. If a TwistEnding overlaps, see AdaptationalAlternateEnding.

'''''Note:''''' This is a SpoileredRotten trope, that means that '''EVERY SINGLE EXAMPLE''' on this list is a spoiler by default and most of them will be unmarked. [[YouHaveBeenWarned This is your last warning]], only proceed if you really believe you can handle this list.

* ''Film/Deadpool2'' has this as its premise. Instead of the familiar scenario of ComicBook/{{Cable}} founding and leading ComicBook/XForce, with ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} as one of their first adversaries, ''Deadpool'' is the founder and leader of X-Force, and ''Cable'' is [[AdaptationalVillainy their first adversary]]. Relatedly: one of Cable's biggest story arcs in the comics involves him [[PapaWolf protecting]] a powerful mutant child in the "Messiah Complex" storyline and its aftermath; the film has him trying to ''[[WouldHurtAChild kill]]'' a powerful mutant child, with Deadpool and co. setting out to stop him.

* Some of the Dramatic Finishes in ''VideoGame/DragonballFighterz'' change the canon outcome of some of [[Anime/DragonBallZ the series]]'s most iconic fights:
** During the Saiyan Saga, Yamcha died when he was blown up by one of Nappa's self-destructing Saibaman. In this game, however, Yamcha can turn the tables and send the Saibaman flying back at Nappa with a Kamehameha, killing him instead ([[MythologyGag same pose and all]]).
** In ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBardockTheFatherOfGoku Bardock: The Father of Goku]]'', Bardock died making a bold last stand against Frieza. In this game, however, Bardock can survive Frieza's finishing attack, become a Super Saiyan, and kill Frieza instead.

* The earliest versions of ''Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast'' have a subplot in which Beauty is torn between her growing connection with the Beast and an attractive prince who appears in her dreams begging for help; most modern adaptations skip it, because everyone knows the ending and can easily foresee the revelation that the dream prince ''is'' the Beast. Creator/UrsulaVernon's novel ''Bryony and Roses'' puts it back in, but [[spoiler:the attractive young man in the dreams isn't the Beast -- it's the novel's equivalent of the witch who cursed him, trying to distract Bryony so she won't break the curse]].

** Some modern retellings of ''Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast'', such as ''Literature/RoseDaughter'', ''don't'' have the Beast change back to a handsome prince at the end to avoid the UnfortunateImplications of a tale about looking past appearances ending with both of its main characters having conventionally beautiful appearances and instead have Beauty accept him for who he is with no change in his appearance needed.
** ''The Tale of the Rose'' by Emma Donoghue is a TwiceToldTale of ''Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast'' with a Beast who constantly wears a mask around Beauty. When the Beast confesses to Beauty that he's no man underneath the mask, Beauty assumes that he means that his appearance isn't human. [[spoiler:However, when Beauty removes the Beast's mask, she learns that the Beast meant "not ''male''" and is actually a perfectly normal-looking woman who secluded herself not because of her appearance but because of society's attitude towards lesbians.]]

* The LiveActionAdaptation of ''Manga/DeathNote'' loosely follows the structure of the first arc of the manga, though many important plot details are changed and some are combined with the second arc. The arc's climactic scene, in which [[spoiler: Light manipulates Rem into killing L with her Death Note]], first diverges when [[spoiler: Light writes his father's name to make him hand over the task force's Death Note]] and then changes completely when [[spoiler: L re-emerges alive and well, Light and Misa are arrested by the task force, Light's Note is revealed to be a fake, and Ryuk writes Light's name in his Note after he decides there is no more fun to be had]]. After this clears up, [[spoiler: L dies peacefully three weeks later, as he had written his own name in the Death Note; since his name was already written, he could not be killed by any other notebook]].

** [[spoiler: Between the Season 1 finale and Season 2 opening, Carmine Falcone, Sal Maroni, and Gillain Loeb got hit with this as well. All three men continued their activities into Batman's first years, with Loeb being forced to resign from the commissioner post at the end of the first year, and the three of them dying during Batman's early years: Maroni and Falcone dying during ''ComicBook/TheLongHalloween'' and Loeb coming BackForTheDead in ''ComicBook/DarkVictory''. Season 1's finale saw Falcone retire and Maroni get killed and the season 2 opening saw Loeb forced to resign, all not long after Thomas and Martha Wayne died. This also likely means that much like Rupert Throne in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' and the Joker in the aforementioned ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', someone else will take Maroni's role in Harvey Dent's transformation into Two-Face.]]
