* In the planned Mythos arc adaptation for the 1979-80 ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'' anime, Helena would have been replaced with a more mythologically-accurate {{Expy}} named Artemis. The show was cancelled before the Mythos arc could be adapted, but Artemis later made a proper debut in the 2001 anime.

** The book's aviary inspired a scripted pteranodon flock attack in the abandoned city. CGI models and at least one animatronic were made, but the scene was too much of a challenge and was abandoned, the CGI models having just a cameo in the end. JP3's aviary is thus refitted from both the first film and its sequel. TLW was also intended to end with a final shot of the pteranodons leaving the island; this was the ending shot of JP3.

** ''JurassicWorld'' refits the pteranodon attack once again, but closer to how it went in the TLW script (pteranodons attacking a large mass of people in the ground and a helicopter in the air at the same time, throwing a member of the crew out and [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaling another through the front window]], before making it crash). It also rescues a scene from the original book where Wu reminds Hammond that the park's dinosaurs cannot be considered real dinosaurs because of how much foreign DNA was inserted in them to complete the sequence, but this time it is an older Wu saying it to Hammond's replacement, [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Masrani]].

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyJusticeForAll'' was originally intended to have five cases. However, due to the limited amount of memory available on a GBA cartridge, the fourth case was cut, retooled, and became the third case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy XIII}}'' and its sequel, ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy XIII-2}}'' both have plots revolving around the threat of [[spoiler: an [[ColonyDrop artificial worldlet being dropped from low orbit which would wipe out humanity]].]] This is partially due to the fact that the resolution of the first game only applies a stopgap fix for the problem, leaving the threat intact for later recycling. Turns out that multi-gigaton masses suspended in the sky with huge amounts of gravitational potential energy are a safety hazard for human civilizations. Who'd have thought, right?

*** In early drafts of ''Jedi'' the final showdown with the Emperor was supposed to take place on a volcanic lava-covered planet called Had Abbadon. The lava planet idea was revisited as Mustafar in ''Sith'', while the name "Had Abbadon" made it into the ''Star Wars: Legacy'' comic as a planet name.

* In ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' trilogy, the prelude to ''Return of the King'' featuring Sméagol was originally intended to be a flashback during the Dead Marshes scene in ''The Two Towers'' where Frodo voices Gollum's real name to him, sparking old memories.
** Similarly, the scenes where Théoden and co. go to Isengard were originally planned for the end of ''The Two Towers'', but were moved to the beginning of ''Return of the King'' due to EndingFatigue. The talk with Saruman even ended up cut from the theatrical cut as it was anticlimactic, but the Extended Edition restored it as it was meant for watching the trilogy back to back.
** This comes up again with ''{{Film/The Hobbit}}'' (especially in the Extended Editions), which recycles a number of scenes or moments from the ''[[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Lord of the Rings]]'' books that couldn't make it into the movies. This kinda makes sense, considering that the ''[[Literature/TheHobbit Hobbit]]'' book is far too short to fill a trilogy.

** A subversion of sorts. Rowling considered opening the second book with a scene where Draco Malfoy and Theodore Nott are hanging out together at Malfoy Manor and discussing recent events from their point of view. She later reworked the scene as an opening for the fourth book, but she decided to cut it that time as well. Ultimately, it was never used in the series at all.

* Similarly, ''Sonic & Knuckles'' consists almost entirely of material that was originally intended for ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic the Hedgehog 3]]'' but was cut due to time and hardware constraints.
** The two games can, however, be locked on together, which creates "Sonic 3 & Knuckles" which is the official full game, and the longest in the original Sonic trilogy.

* WordOfGod is that this is the case for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' which is why [[UpdatedRerelease the HD remake]] will not be having any additional dungeons. For instance, there's speculation that Fado from ''Wind Waker'' is to Fado from ''Ocarina Of Time''. It's a popular theory that the blonde Kokiri girl from the Biggoron Sword quest, officially called "Fado", was a Wind Sage but her role was given to Saria late in development. Come a few years later and we have a blond ([[GenderFlip male]]) Kokiri named "Fado" who was the Wind Sage.
