* 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]].

* In ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'', Darth Vader [[spoiler: (aka Padme)]] gives us this gem: "Luke, I am your [[spoiler: mother]]."

* ''WebComic/DarthsAndDroids'' is an adaptation of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' movies, so naturally Darth Vader will turn out to be Luke and Leia's father, Anakin. And since the comic goes in chronological order, it'll be even ''less'' of a surprise, since Anakin was a player character first. [[spoiler:Vader is actually their ''mother'', Padme. Anakin was KilledOffForReal.]]

* In the ''Series/SesameStreet'' episode, "Birdie and the Beast", after Big Bird befriends the Beast, the Witch's curse upon the Beast is broken. However, rather than turn the Beast back into a human, the Beast's hair is straightened out. When a surprised Big Bird tells the Beast that he's still a beast, The Beast tells him that he's always been a beast, and that the Witch's curse just messed up his hair.

** The series also adds surprise for comic readers by keeping the iconic events and deaths of the comics but changing the characters involved (though some of these are justified by the comic characters not being present or of the same prominence in the TV show. Examples include [[spoiler: Dale's early TV death resulting in Herschel and Bob replacing him in surviving a walker bite by leg amputation, and losing the other leg to cannibals respoectively, Denise suffering Abraham's death for the show and Herschel replacing Tyreese in the TV representation of the latter's death. The seventh season will reveal if Negan and Lucille's victim will remain the same in the TV show as in the comics.]]

* ''Film/{{Pan}}'', which tries to tell the origin story of the Peter Pan lore, depicts Captain Hook as Peter's closest friend and ally. One would expect that he'd pull a FaceHeelTurn over the course of the film, but no such thing happened, and he never became the villain people would know him as.

* For years of his comic book existence, [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]] maintained the [[SecretIdentity ruse]] that Iron Man was his bodyguard, using a suit provided to him by Tony's company. At the end of [[Film/IronMan the movie adaptation,]] this is the cover story Tony has been provided to use at a press conference set up to deal with the Iron Monger incident, but [[spoiler:Tony decides to go off script and end the movie with the bold declaration "I am Iron Man" (cue the Music/BlackSabbath)]].

* Each version of ''Sands of Destruction'' is an AlternateContinuity, which makes for plenty of surprises no matter what order you watch/play/read them in. The [[Anime/SandsOfDestruction anime]] hides the fact that Kyrie is a PersonOfMassDestruction until the final episode, making him an AmnesiacHero (of sorts). The game[[note]]game-specific examples are in the game folder[[/note]] and [[Manga/SandsOfDestruction manga]] ''open'' with this fact. EverybodyLives in the anime, barring the death of [[spoiler:Aquilla Rex and a couple of his mooks]] in the last episode, while in the manga, [[spoiler:Naja]] almost dies and [[spoiler:Morte]] ''does''. [[spoiler:But she's revived in the last chapter.]] [[spoiler:Kyrie]] is also SparedByTheAdaptation in both of these. The exact identity of the main characters varies, too. Kyrie is always the Destruct, but in the anime that means [[spoiler:he's been alive in his current body for millennia, and he will end the world if someone in it truly wishes him to]], whereas in the manga he's still an amnesiac but what he's forgotten this time is that [[spoiler:he's one of two angels who make up the Destruct system, and he's reincarnated every thousand years in order to destroy the world so that it can be reborn fresh and new]]. In the anime, Morte is just a random girl who happens to ''really'' want to end the world [[spoiler:because her family was killed by Ferals and she believes she has nothing to live for and anyone who thinks the world is worth saving is deluding themselves]], but in the manga she's [[spoiler:the Planner, Princess of Guidance who incarnates every thousand years in order to determine the qualities of the next world after Kyrie destroys it. Yes, she royally screwed up this last time; that's why she's so eager to see the world end: so she can fix it]]. Agan is also merely a random smuggler in the anime, rather than being Morte's ChildhoodFriend as he is in the game and manga. The anime also features a small black ball called the Destruct Code, which makes no appearances in any other adaptation.[[note]]aside from a single picture in the manga, but this is more "official fanart" decorating the ''tankobon'' than any part of the plot[[note]] This sphere is actually [[spoiler:a memory storage device for Kyrie, which not only allows him to recall the millennia of his life, but also to show his memories to anyone he chooses]]. Rhi'a loses her guns in the manga, becoming a largely-NeutralFemale rather than TheGunslinger. The manga also cuts many side characters, preferring to focus on the leads.

* As with the Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths, the new continuity created by Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}} went out of it's way to change things up in the DCU.
* A sort of double-subversion occurs with the new version of the [[MirrorUniverse Crime Syndicate]]. In previous continuity, most of the evil counterparts of the Justice League had radically different backstories than their main counterparts. For instance, Ultraman (the evil Superman) was an astronaut who was experimented on by aliens, and Jhonny Quick (the evil Flash) gets his powers from drugs. In the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}, the crime syndicate member's backstories are dark, twisted parodies of the main heroes of the DCU. Not only is this a subversion, but it's also an inversion since their backstories are now much closer to the pre-crisis CSA.

** Likewise, the first time Doomsday (the creature that "killed" Superman in the comics) shows up in the Franchise/{{DCAU}}, he faces an alternate-universe Superman [[KnightTemplar who has few scruples]], and wastes no time whatsoever lobotomizing Doomsday with his heat vision. Besides, his first appearance is the same as in the comics (he simply gets out from a meteorite, and begins a senseless rampage of destruction), but it is later revealed that Doomsday origin is far more complex than that, the thing we had saw was just the peak of the iceberg.
