* A minor one in Creator/VizMedia's English edition of the ''OnePiece'' manga involves a particular character being called "Zoro" in early printings of the first few volumes, [[SpellMyNameWithAnS later being changed to "Zolo"]] to match FourKidsEntertainment's dub of the TV series. However, Zolo stuck for Viz even when Creator/FUNimation later changed his name back to Zoro in their own dub.

* The original version of ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'' uses the "new look" Batman costume with the yellow oval behind the bat insignia, which Batman was still wearing in the main comics in 1988. When ''The Killing Joke'' was digitally recolored in 2008, the yellow oval was removed from every single panel, leaving just the bat, because in 2008 Batman no longer had the oval. This change is baffling since no other attempts were made to modernize the story, which is still canonically set when Batman still had the oval.

* Creator/{{Nintendo}} and Creator/GameFreak received criticism over Jynx's design in the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' franchise over her similarity to the blackface stereotype. (This was not intentional--but what Jynx is ''really'' based on is controversial itself.) They resolved this issue by changing Jynx's face from black to purple, including for remakes of old games, as well as promptly replacing any images of Jynx with a black face with new artwork where her face is purple wherever possible and recoloring the episode of [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} the anime]] that started up the whole debate. This proved futile with the English dub, though (See Anime & Manga section above).

* ''PokemonSpecial'' gets a ''lot'' of changes and revisions when its chapters get collected into tankobon form. Makes sense, as the manga gets serialized in three different magazines and out of order to boot, not to mention the mangaka often adds new details to incorporate whatever new features that had since been released from the new games.

** While the original design for the Pokémon Jynx has been a subject of controversy for years (see Video Games section below), The Pokémon Company International has taken action by pulling three episodes that feature Jynx in her original design in the same manner that The Pokémon Company in Japan pulled "Cyber Soldier Porygon", i.e. they pretend that these episodes never existed. What makes this worse in Jynx's case is that one of the episodes just features her in a ''small cameo'', and that one of the pulled episodes was remastered in Japan so that Jynx would appear in her current design.
