* AuthorExistenceFailure: Industry legend John Severin was asked what types of story he'd like to draw when he came onboard. His first request, to do a [[TheWestern Western]],Western]], led to the ''Witchfinder'' story "Lost and Gone Forever". His second request, to do a WWII story, led to the ''Sledgehammer '44'' series being developed, but he died after only drawing the first three pages and some character designs. The series was eventually completed by other artists.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Executives originally wanted to cast VinDiesel as Hellboy and make him a human who can transform into a demon, a la TheIncredibleHulk. Putting aside the fact that this would most likely have gotten them sued by Marvel Comics, del Toro and Mignola did not like this, and they had both independently decided that Creator/RonPerlman was the only casting choice for the part that either of them would support. Hellboy remained a big red guy in a coat, and Perlman was cast. The film took a significant budget cut as a result, though given del Toro's talented directing, it's hard to tell- although it also meant the advertising budget was almost nothing, and since the film was released when ''Passion Of The Christ'' came out and many theaters refused to show the film due to that fact, as well as having the word "Hell" in the title, having no ad budget REALLY hurt this movie.

* ChannelHop: A rare film example; switched from Sony Pictures to Universal. This was due to Revolution, who produced the first film and had an exclusive deal with Sony, had folded.

to:

* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: Mignola plots the series ''years'' in advance, but he did change his plans for ''Hellboy In Hell'' which was originally intended to run at its own pace indefinitely. But after [[spoiler: Hellboy killed Satan]] too many dominos were pushed over and he decided to go for a GrandFinale with issue ten instead.

* ExiledFromContinuity: The appearance of the Torch of Liberty in the first miniseries is still ''canon'', but since the character is created and owned by John Byrne, who scripted the original miniseries, he has never reappeared outside of Hellboy's "family photo".
