** In her solo title, Harley Quinn later begins dyeing her pigtails so that they resemble Creator/MargotRobbie's hair in the live-action ''Film/SuicideSquad'' movie. This is even {{Lampshaded}} when Harley says that her new hair color looks "So cinematic!"

** Comicbook/{{Katana}}'s New 52 costume was damaged in the ''Comicbook/SuicideSquad Most Wanted'' mini-series, leading to her adopting her look from the ''Film/SuicideSquad'' live-action movie. She also now wields a second, shorter blade as a side arm, much like she does in the film.

* 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 been used in most of the subsequent additions to the franchise as well.

* Lum originally had iridescent hair in the ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' manga, which fit nicely with her bizarre, inhuman appearance. However, since iridescent hair was impossible to animate on a TV budget in the 1980's (and is still very difficult to do even today), the anime adaptation gave her green hair instead. The green hair then became so popular and iconic that it was retconned into the later chapters of the manga.
* Gaara from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is described as having brown hair in early manga chapters (much like his brother Kankuro). In the anime that [[AdaptationDyeJob was changed]] so that he was an EvilRedhead. Eventually the manga made Gaara a redhead as well.

** If one thing has stuck from ''Heroes Reborn'' (besides the return of adult Tony and normal-looking Wasp), it's Tony sporting a BadassBeard in addition to his BadassMustache. It's become so linked to the character that many recent incarnations, including the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel and Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse versions have had Tony with it.

** In HR, Captain America was "deactivated" by President Truman after a disagreement over the use of atom bombs against Japanese civilians. This idea was integrated into the mainstream continuity during the controversial "Ice" story arc, where it was revealed that the government had Cap frozen so that he couldn't stop the atom bombs from being dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Of course, the story was so reviled that it was later rendered CanonDiscontinuity, but still.

* Ever since ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' redefined Mr. Freeze as a tragic figure, consumed for the lost love of his stricken wife, the original comic version was changed to resemble that. Originally, he was just a villain with a gimmicky weapon with no back story, a version that later appeared in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''.
