* 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).

* 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''.
