** Among the characters who died in the original version of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' were [[spoiler: Chidori and Shinjiro]], both of whom developed [[EnsembleDarkHorse strong fan followings]]. When the game was remade as Persona 3: FES, a sidequest was added to allow you to save the former, then when the game was remade ''again'' for the PSP, ''another'' sidequest was added to save the latter. The frustrating thing is that both of these are pure GuideDangIt and the latter is only possible if you chose the female main character, so it's [[LostForever missable]] from the ''very first choice in the game''.

* In ''[[http://xmen.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600091290 Side Effect]]'', [[Franchise/SpiderMan Uncle Ben]] survives. This is because [[AdaptationalBadass Gwen ended up getting superpowers as well]], and because of that, he's a good deal more selfless in his early superpowered days. As a result, he decides to apprehend the hoodlum who robs the sleazy fight promoter, meaning he never gets anywhere near Ben.

* Creator/HansChristianAndersen's ''The Red Shoes'' ends with the protagonist Karen [[spoiler:getting her feet cut off to remove the titular shoes, before she eventually dies.]] Many adaptations find a less painful way for Karen to remove the shoes, and end with Karen still alive.

Both an adaptation trope and a death trope, Spared by the Adaptation refers to cases where a character who died in the source material does '''not''' die in the adaptation.

The reasons behind these occurrences vary. Perhaps the [[MoralGuardians Media Watchdogs]], ExecutiveMeddling, and/or the creator wanted to make it LighterAndSofter than the original. Maybe the character was [[EnsembleDarkHorse a fan favorite]] and [[SavedByTheFans the crew wanted to appease the fan base]]. Maybe the death stood out as especially pointless, and people in charge took it as a given that life is cruel and unfair so [[PragmaticAdaptation they didn't need to kill a beloved character just to make that point to the audience yet again]]. Maybe the events where it happens are cut for other reasons. The sky's the limit as for why this happens, which probably explains why it happens so often.

* The largely fictionalized novelization of the ''Literature/MutinyOnTheBounty'' spares the ship's surgeon, Thomas Ledward, by allowing him to serve as narrator of the open boat voyage to Coupang and onwards to England. In reality, the man never made it back to England, having been lost in a shipwreck after departing Coupang.
