* 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.

[[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]].

Added DiffLines:

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Heatherfield's location isn't specified, but unlike in the comics, it's unambiguously set in the US (the comics went back and forth on it being in either the US or Europe). Some of the coastal and topography elements seem to imply it's in Connecticut, possibly as a fictional counterpart to New Haven.

** In the second season opening, the song asks "and who has power over earth?" while showing Cornelia reviving a flower for her sister Lillian. It takes until "U is for Undivided" before we learn that not only does this refer to Cornelia's powers, [[spoiler: but also to Lillian being the Heart of Earth.]] (American viewers, however, didn't see that, as a different intro was used for both seasons.)

*** Franchise/{{Pokemon}} cameo in the European intro sequence. Really.
** A few to ''Franchise/StarTrek''- Irma says "Star Trek convention" at one point and two characters are named Trill (Jadzia/Exri Dax's species) and Kor (TOS era Klingon who appeared several times on [=DS9=]).

Really. (As does a stuffed frog on Will's bedside table that looks a lot like [[Franchise/TheMuppets Kermit]].)

(It should be noted Rosalind Chao- who played Keiko O'Brien in ''TNG'' and ''[=DS9=]''- voiced Hay Lin's mother Joan here. Coincidence?)
