* AdaptationalJerkass: Cornelia is presented as more of a straight AlphaBitch than the LovableAlphaBitch she is in the comics. She's ruder and generally more aggressive. In the comics she is a Bully Hunter but in the cartoon, prior to her CharacterDevelopment she was TheBully herself.

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Nerissa, while still a villain, has some redeeming qualities. Unlike in the comics, she is actually remorseful over murdering Cassidy, and genuinely loves [[spoiler:her son, Caleb and her lover/Caleb's father, Jullian, but not enough to redeem her.]]
-->'''Yan Lin''': Are you going to destroy us like you destroyed Cassidy? Does her memory mean so little to you?\\
'''Nerissa''': You have no idea what she meant to me!

Added DiffLines:

* RaceLift: Witrh the minor characters Bess and Courtney Grumper. While their race is never technically stated, in the comics, they have golden-brown skin and bluish-black hair with dark eyes, similar to Theresa Cook, which suggests an Asian heritage. In the cartoon, however, they are white with red hair and green eyes.

* UnpleasantParentReveal: [[spoiler: It's clear from Caleb's face that the revelation that his MissingMom is also the season's BigBad is ''not'' welcome news.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FlyingFirepower: Will in second season aquires her elemental power of Quintessence, that manifests in devastating lightning bolts. Nerissa in her Guardian form has the same abilities and more experience (and usually power, as she doesn't divide her energy source with others).

[[ComicBook/{{WITCH}} Based on an Italian comic book]]. This show aired on Creator/ABCFamily and ToonDisney's Jetix block (plus reruns on Creator/{{ABC}} Kids, the successor to Main/OneSaturdayMorning) and decided to try something else from the typical comic book adaptations at the time. It [[AdaptationDistillation re-imagines the first two story arcs of the comic, tying them together and making them one central, stand-alone, connected plot-line told in the show's serial narrative]]. To some fans' regret, however, this results in them changing a few things around. Creator/GregWeisman, creator of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', was a showrunner during the second season.

* AerithAndBob: In Meridian, we have names like Caleb and Cedric alongside Phobos and Elyon. And on Earth, we have names such as Matt, Nigel, Martin, and ...Alchemy?

* SnowMeansLove: Will and Matt had their first kiss under a tree in a light snowfall.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Kinda. [[spoiler:In the comics, Yan Lin dies of old age shortly after having presented the girls with their powers. However, she turns out to live on in Kandrakaar, as part of the Council. In the series, she lives on in Heatherfield]]. Also, [[spoiler:Mr. Huggles dies after being hit by a car in the comic, though it is in a later storyline that was never adaptated for TV.]]
* SkeletonGovernment: The entire planet of Meridian seem to be run by a single monarch, assisted by a couple of advisors. In a particularly egregious scene in the second series, Elyon was asked to negotiate a boundary dispute between two groups of farmers. You'd think there'd be some sort of regional governor to see to such matters.
** Xambala's the same.
** May be justified in both cases as Meridian was recently under a dictatorship and probably lacks any infrastructure while Zambala's population is basically a bunch of living trees.

* AllForNothing: Everything the Guardians allowed to happen since freeing Phobos to stop Nerissa: letting him take the Hearts of Meridian and Dumballa, allowing him to reconquer Meridian, not interfering with his plan to invade Kandracar, and [[ILetYouWin throwing the battle when he attacked Kandracar]], all as part of a plan to make Phobos break his vow on Kandracar's power and lose everything was rendered this when [[spoiler:Cedric devours Phobos and gains his powers and conquests just before the vow was broken]].
