* Other than the basic premise of "[[RogerRabbitEffect cartoon characters are real and live side-by-side with humans]]" and four important characters (Eddie Valiant, Roger and Jessica Rabbit, and Baby Herman), there are almost no similarities between the book ''Literature/WhoCensoredRogerRabbit'' and the movie ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. However, the author liked the movie much more than he'd liked his own novel, and when he wrote a sequel, ''Who Plugged Roger Rabbit?'', he followed up the movie's continuity, not the book's (which was even {{handwave}}d away as being AllJustADream).

About the only things carried forward from the first book into the sequels that weren't from the movie were the concept of Toons talking in comic-strip speech bubbles... and Roger's height.

* Many elements from the various media adaptations of the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' franchise ended up being used in the backstories of later games. Most notably, ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'' greatly influenced the plot of the ''Street Fighter Alpha'' prequel series, from M. Bison's more muscular design to the origin story of Ryu's red bandanna. Ken's brainwashed "Violent Ken" form from the animated movie also became playable in ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos''. Masahiko Nakahira's manga adaptation of the first ''Alpha'' game featured a storyline involving Ryu being possessed by the Satsui no Hadou, the same power used by Akuma; this concept would be reused for Ryu's storyline in' ''Alpha 2''.

** Sonic Unleashed and later games, which are notable for featuring a more westernized tone and style, seem to borrow a lot from the American cartoons when it comes to Sonic and Eggman's characterizations, such as Sonic having a hyper personality. Before that, he was usually portrayed with a more calm and cool personality.

** The idea of Knuckles the Echidna being a treasure hunter comes from the [=OVAs=].

** The idea of [=OVAs=] changed Knuckles the Echidna into a treasure hunter. Half a decade later, ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' made references to Knuckles being a treasure hunter comes from hunter. Though this may be more of a nod than anything, likely referencing the [=OVAs=].fact that he's always searching for emeralds in these games (for the purpose of restoring the Master Emerald).

** In the games, Dr. Eggman, while having his robotic minions, didn't have any close sidekicks; compare this to ''any'' of the animated series, where his counterpart has ''some'' sort of underling (Scratch, Grounder and Coconuts in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''; Snively and Cluck in ''WesternAnimation/SonicTheHedgehog''; Sleet and Dingo in ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground''; Bocoe, Decoe and Bokkun in ''Anime/SonicX''). This was rectified in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', which gave him SA-55 "Orbot" as a snarky direct underling, and then furthered in ''VideoGame/SonicColors'' with "Cubot", giving Orbot somebody else to play off of for humor.
