* A miscommunication in ''Comicbook/DetectiveComicsRebirth'' led to a scene showing a Christian cross on the tombstone of Comicbook/{{Batwoman}}'s mother, even though she and her family are Jewish. The digital and collected editions edited out the cross and replaced it with a Star of David.

* In the anime adaptation of ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'', Yuri Sakazaki was originally voiced by Japanese pop singer AyumiHamasaki, who also appeared in a series of live-action promos for ''Art of Fighting 2'' in Japan. When the anime was re-released on DVD in Japan, all of Ayumi's dialogue were dubbed over by Kaori Horie, Yuri's actual voice actress in the games, since Hamasaki wanted a great share of the royalties for the use of her voice.

* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' Special Editions included, along with updated special effects, various edits to connect it to the prequel trilogy. Then there was [[TheDogShotFirst Greedo firing at Han Solo]], which may have been done to maintain the film's PG rating.

* The second book of the ''[[Literature/TheBookOfTheDunCow Book of the Dun Cow]]'' series, ''The Book of Sorrows'' was rewritten and reissued some time later as ''Lamentations''. The new version differs in writing style, changes various plot points, and both introduces new characters and removes existing ones from ''Sorrows''. This was to bring the series in line with the final book, ''Peace at the Last'', which followed the rewritten continuity.

* The theatrical release of ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania2'' contained a joke spoken by Kakie the Cake Monster, "the scariest monster of all is diabetes!" However, parents and groups reacted quite negatively about the line's implications, so Sony Pictures quietly replaced the line with laughter by Kakie for all future releases of the film.
