** The casting of Topher Grace as Eddie Brock (aka Comicbook/{{Venom}}) was pretty infamous. Nearly everywhere else, he's a large adult bodybuilder. The film version? A skinny guy who looks like he's 20.

* Kid Kool's design in the box art for ''Kid Kool And The Quest For TheSeven Wonder Herbs'' for the NES has him look like a tough character, with black hair, muscles, sunglasses, a white shirt, a sleeveless leather jacket, sneakers and ripped jeans. The Kid Kool character in the actual game itself looks completely different; he is chubby, has brown hair and wears a brown shirt and white overalls. Are we talking about the same character here? You can blame AmericanKirbyIsHardcore for this. The original version of the game starred Kakefu-kun (a TV star from the mid-80s), but since nobody outside of Japan had heard of him, they changed the cover of the localized version to look...like that. Yeah.

* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm''
** [[VideoGame/StarcraftII Dehaka]] went through a major redesign, going from an [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/starcraft/images/9/91/Dehaka_SC2-HotS_Story1.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130316214531 upright bulky creature]] with grey/brown/yellow skin to a [[https://www.heroesfire.com/images/heroes/talent-card/dehaka.jpg skinnier hunched creature]] with blue/black/purple skin. This is {{lampshaded}}/{{justified}} by him, claiming that he's [[LegoGenetics evolved]] much since joining Kerrigan's Swarm.
** This also happened with Stukov, who's infested arm went from being [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/yhAKcgMCK4c/maxresdefault.jpg only a little bigger than his normal one]], to suddenly being [[https://www.heroesfire.com/images/hero/portrait/stukov.png utterly massive]].
** This happened ''in reverse'' for Greymane. When Greymane was added to the game, he had a generic human and worgen model in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', so the art team created a [[https://d1u5p3l4wpay3k.cloudfront.net/allstars_gamepedia/thumb/8/88/GennGreymaneArt.jpg/240px-GennGreymaneArt.jpg?version=b1b894ba4306a0eb09a9ef78f8ef2adc unique look for him]]. Come ''Legion'', Greymane received his [[https://d1u5p3l4wpay3k.cloudfront.net/wowpedia/thumb/0/01/Hallow%27s_End_Genn_Greymane2.png/300px-Hallow%27s_End_Genn_Greymane2.png?version=764eb9af285a1c6075551fffc9fa3817 own]] [[https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR-BW8PW1n2Lum4HqWLCh2PL3Zyt-axTEC3DSOdcIeFuVxb2gh3 models]]... which naturally look nothing like the ones in ''Heroes''.

* In the 90s ''{{Spider-Man}}'' animated series, Blade made an appearance but so did a pre-movie Whistler. Whistler looked and sounded nothing like the character played by grizzled Kris Kristofferson in the movies. Animated Whistler was younger, cleancut, and voiced by MalcolmMcDowell who spoke in his usual mid-atlantic accent. The animated appearances predate the movies by about four years. And the character of Whistler was created for the films (he had not appeared in the comics), so the writers of the animated episodes simply had access to an early, possibly unused draft of the film script. Both get a pass since at that time, there was no indication as to who would be eventually cast as Whistler, if a film was made.

* Ladd Spencer (or [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Rad]], depending on the version) from the NES ''VideoGame/BionicCommando'' has been redesigned at least thrice already: the first time for the GameBoy version, followed by the ''Rearmed'' remake, and then the 2009 console sequel for the [=PS3=] and Xbox 360. Only the ''Rearmed'' version looks anything like the original NES character. While Ladd from the NES game looks nothing like the protagonist in the arcade version, he doesn't count as a redesign, since the player character in the arcade game was just a nameless soldier (except in the American localization, which claimed he was Super Joe).

*The ''Franchise/DisneyFairies'' series has a few. Notably, Queen Clarion's design drastically changes from the books to the movies. She turns from wearing flower-petal dresses like everyone else into a taller fairy with a dress made of glitter and massive golden butterfly wings for no apparent reason.

** Zelda in ''The Hyrule Fantasy'' by Kobayashi Susumu doesn't resemble her appearance in the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI original game]] at all. In the games she is a kid with puffy EightiesHair and an equally puffy pink dress. The manga aged her up into a teenager and went with a more realistic medieval design. She's [[AdaptationalModesty much more covered up]] more as well.
