** Interestingly, "The Lost World" has little in common with its novel counterpart. Ian Malcolm in a Godzilla movie vs a semi-remake, fight!

* ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins''' anime adaptation is experiencing some delays due to needing the manga to progress further before they can adapt the next arc fully.

* ''Manga/ShamanKing'' is a bit more balanced between the manga and anime, but the anime seems to overtake the manga by a nose.

* After the fifth season of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' the show had mostly caught up with the published ''Series/ASongOfIceAndFire'' novels. This is based on a version of the problem that plagues anime – although the show only airs ten episodes per season, it might have given another writer time to finish, the problem is that Creator/GeorgeRRMartin writes his {{Doorstopper}} novels ''[[ScheduleSlip veeeeerrrry sloooowwwwly]]''. This has led to Bran's storyline being left out of season 5 of the show, because his character has actually caught up entirely with his book plot line. Martin has given the show's writers a detailed explanation of events in the final two novels, as the showrunners have made it clear they will not and cannot stop and wait for Martin to catch up. The season 4 episode "[[Recap/GameOfThronesS4E4Oathkeeper Oathkeeper]]" featured a revelation before it came in the novels, that [[spoiler:reveals the Others/White Walkers have a society and hierarchy, that they create new Others/White Walkers by transforming human babies, and that they are led by the Night's King, an evil figure from Westeros mythology who was not previously confirmed to actually exist]]. The final two episodes of the fifth season were the first to adapt material confirmed to be from upcoming novels and revealed that [[spoiler:Stannis Baratheon would burn his daughter as a sacrifice and fail in his attempt to take Winterfell]]. It's becoming clear that the series is an AlternateContinuity from the books, with a mix of simplified situations, BroadStrokes, and several major events being completely different than their equivalents in the novels. The two will most likely split even more dramatically before the end.

* ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' was filmed before [[ComicBook/ScottPilgrim the comic's]] final volume had been written, so while most of the film is fairly faithful the endings are quite different.

* The ''Franchise/StarTrek'' comic books often suffered from overtaking the movies. For example, in the movies, ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' follows immediately after ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock'', with a gap of days or less in-between. In the comics, they adapted ''Search,'' then had Spock make a full recovery, Kirk and crew take command of the ''Excelsior,'' and Starfleet send them all on a bunch of far-away missions while they decided what to do with the captain who stole the ''Enterprise'' and got it blown up. When it came time to adapt ''Voyage,'' Spock started having a mental breakdown, so Kirk swapped the ''Excelsior'' for the Klingon ship they'd apparently kept in a parking orbit somewhere for all those months, took him back to Vulcan for treatment, and managed to set things up exactly the way they had been at the end of ''Search,'' just in time for a huge cylinder to start asking Earth about whales.

* A similar example occurs with the SNES adaptation of ''VideoGame/JurassicPark''. Ocean couldn't wait for the sequel (or even the novel it would be loosely based on) and created their own, ''JurassicParkPart2TheChaosContinues''. It had a vaguely similar plot to the eventual sequel – a rival genetics company tries to take control of the island by force, and Alan Grant is sent to stop them. Nobody stopped to question why Grant was suddenly a gun-toting Contra-esque mercenary… or why he'd care about any of this. Good music, though.

* As of the show's fourth season in 2014, ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is coming dangerously close to overtaking the ''Series/ASongOfIceAndFire'' novels. This is based on a version of the problem that plagues anime – although the relatively slow production schedule (the show only airs ten episodes per season) might give another writer time to finish, the problem is that Creator/GeorgeRRMartin writes his {{Doorstopper}} novels ''veeeeerrrry sloooowwwwly''. While there are still two hefty novels left before the show runs out of material, both of those books occur at the same time in-universe and several characters have already started to dip into the storylines from those novels. Martin has given the show's writers a detailed explanation of events in the final two novels, as the showrunners have made it clear they will not and cannot stop and wait for Martin to catch up. The season 4 episode "[[Recap/GameOfThronesS4E4Oathkeeper Oathkeeper]]" is the first to feature a major revelation before the novels: the final scene [[spoiler:reveals the Others/White Walkers have a society and hierarchy, that they create new Others/White Walkers by transforming human babies, and that they are led by the Night's King, an evil figure from Westeros mythology who was not previously confirmed to actually exist]].
** Confirmed by the showrunners of the show and Martin's publisher in early 2015.
** This has led to Bran's storyline being left out of season 5 of the show, because his character has actually caught up entirely with his book plotline.
** By the end of season 5 it's clear that the series is an AlternateContinuity from the books, with a mix of simplified situations, BroadStrokes, and several major events being completely different than their equivalents in the novels. The two will most likely split even more dramatically before the end.

** The second season, named "The Orange Islands", took place on a completely original set of islands. This was due to ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' not yet being released at the time; while they could've had the characters potter about the Kanto region for another 35 episodes, moving the story to a more original setting allowed the producers to start [[MerchandiseDriven introducing more of the new Johto Pokémon]] ahead of Gold and Silver's release. This actually allowed Finnish MTV channel to [[NoExportForYou remove the Orange Island saga from their TV]].

*When ''ComicBook/TheMaxx'' was adapted by MTV, they did a very faithful job, despite having to replace some of the [[ComicBook/SavageDragon character cameos]]. However, given the book's typical ImageComics production schedule, the cartoon had to invent its own ending, '''well''' before the comic got there.
