* The 2003 re-release of the original ''Manga/SailorMoon'' manga was renamed "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon" after [[Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon the live-action show]]. The updated release also incorporated the show's habit of referring to the girls as "Guardians" instead of "Soldiers," an idea that has since been used in most of the subsequent additions to the franchise (including Creator/VizMedia's uncut English dub of the '90s anime) as well. An unnamed move Ami used early on in the manga was also changed to the "Mercury Aqua Mist" attack from the TV show.

* ''VideoGame/SilentHillHomecoming'' takes many of its visual cues from [[Film/SilentHill the film adaptation]] (which the fans HATE). This is one of the reasons why it's considered the scrappy of the franchise.
