** Having very beautiful actors like Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston play the Addamses has also tainted what fans believe the Addams Family should look like, as the original comics depicted them as rather grotesque. The [[WesternAnimation/TheAddamsFamily2019 2019 movie]] tried to stay loyal to Charles Addams' original art, but was criticized for looking "ugly".


Done badly, and this can not only damage a franchise's reputation, but may also [[FranchiseKiller forever kill any interest in continuing it]]. Or at least put it on hiatus for a decade or two, until someone with enough clout and interest in the series comes along to push another attempt. [[TropesAreNotBad Done well, however?]] It can attract more potential fans to the franchise and even introduce new elements that go forth to be used in all future installments.

** ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'', meanwhile, is one of the biggest subversions. The stage version of John Smith and Pocahontas had formed itself not long after the real events, through many different variations and romanticizing went as far as them being lovers. Once Disney put that story to celluloid, people complained enough that everyone now knows the real Pocahontas was only twelve years old at the time and has no love affair with Smith. She even married John Rolfe and moved with him to England, a fact that Disney got right in the direct-to-video sequel.

* ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' did this with one particular character - Mina. Although it promoted itself as a TruerToTheText version, here Mina was PromotedToLoveInterest and became a reincarnation of Dracula's dead wife. In the book, Mina was just another victim for him to target. Most adaptations or re-tellings since then have given Dracula a personal connection to Mina - and many have used the 'reincarnated wife' element. Likewise the portrayal of Lucy is heavily influenced by how this film treats her. In the novel she's SpoiledSweet and more reminiscent of Lottie from ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. ''Bram Stoker's Dracula'' makes her HotterAndSexier - introducing a MadonnaWhoreComplex situation between her and Mina that isn't there in the original novel.



* The 1990s ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' sitcom is how most people know about the titular comics that have been running off and on since 1962. It remains to be seen if the more horror-based adaptation ''Series/ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina'' will change audience perceptions.

* The 1990s ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' sitcom is how most people know about the titular comics that have been running off and on since 1962. The [[WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries animated series]] took more cues from the sitcom than the comics - such as Sabrina having long hair rather than her comics bob, Salem being a warlock turned into a cat as punishment for trying to take over the world and Hilda being the ditzy aunt and Zelda the responsible one (other way around in the comics). It remains to be seen if the more horror-based adaptation ''Series/ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina'' will change audience perceptions.


* The 60s high {{Camp}} TV interpretation of ''Series/{{Batman|1966}}'' still lingers on as some people's view of the character, despite several adaptations and major character changes since. This has continued to the extent that Creator/WarnerBros Consumer Products approached Creator/AdamWest and Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox (producers of the TV show) in 2012 about producing merchandise based on the TV shows. (Also, greeting cards from Hallmark tend to follow the Adam West design, which most closely resembled the traditional comic book design.) The Jim Holmes incident may further encourage this revival of the West version.

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'' has crippled ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} as a character for quite a long time. Give him a harpoon hand, replace it with a magical water hand, point out how life at the bottom of the ocean has made him stronger, faster, and more resilient than most humans... and everyone will still be like, "He's just some guy who swims fast and talks to fish." The comic and various other adaptations have been trying to combat this for years (for instance, ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' followed the comics of the time and gave him features of a BarbarianHero, while ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' made him a BoisterousBruiser and LargeHam), but while these versions each had their share of fans none seemed to permanently stick in the public consciousness until he was featured in the Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse (which also went the barbarian route), where he's played by Creator/JasonMomoa. Between [[Series/StargateAtlantis Ronon Dex]], [[Series/GameOfThrones Khal Drogo]] and [[Film/ConanTheBarbarian2011 Conan]], if there's one person in the world who can rescue Aquaman's reputation as a stone-cold badass, it's him. Based on how his [[Film/Aquaman2018 new movie's]] turned into a billion-dollar success, it's a fair bet to say he's succeeded.

Added DiffLines:

* The 1992 ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' cartoon from Creator/FoxKids is pretty true to the ''story'' of [[ComicBook/XMen the original comics]], but its distinctive visual style and futuristic art direction have had a pretty big impact on how general audiences picture the X-Men. Notably, it used the character designs of Creator/JimLee, who only drew the comics for a very brief window of time in the early 1990s. Thanks to the show, many people tend to picture ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} wearing a blue kevlar suit with yellow cross belts and a wraparound visor (he wore a tight spandex suit with a full-face mask for most of his history), they tend to picture Professor Xavier using a fancy yellow hover-chair, and they tend to picture ComicBook/{{Rogue}} with a bomber jacket and [[EightiesHair a huge mane of dark hair]].

* Everyone remembers the 1987 ''WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|1987}}'' cartoon, while the much darker original comics and subsequent cartoons and movies seem to be living in its shadow... Much like [[Series/{{Batman}} the '60s Batman]] example earlier in the page.

* The ''Series/{{Arrowverse}}'' has had this effect for the mythos of Green Arrow and The Flash, which have been the biggest out-of-comics takes on those two franchises; as a result, several Flash villains like Zoom, Captain Cold, and Savitar are more likely to bring up their show versions than the originals. Unfortunate for many fans of the comics, though, as the shows receive a ''great'' deal of TheyChangedItNowItSucks treatment and there's something of a FandomRivalry between fans of the comic versions and fans of the shows, so having the shows become the popular representation of the franchises in the pop culture can be something of a sour point[[note]]''especially'' for fans of the Wally West era, as the show has popularised Barry Allen as the Flash, with Wally's tenure being seen as only a temporary venture by many.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'''s intense popularity has meant every other ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' entry is compared to it, and tropes that only happen in ''VII'' are considered to be emblematic cliches of the series. On top of that, a lot of the tropes that people associate with ''VII'' are {{Dead Unicorn Trope}}s originating from successive portrayals of the characters in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' and {{Fanon}}.

Added DiffLines:

** Game fan-art usually depicts Gladion as taller than he actually is. Despite being Lillie's older brother, Lillie is taller than him by a few centimeters. However the anime made him noticeably taller than Lillie (and made Lillie shorter than she is in the games), so fan-artists usually go with their proportions.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': The anime's designs and CharacterExaggeration are the mainstream interpretation of the characters. For example, in the manga, Ino doesn't have blue eyes, Naruto's chakra (and as a result, his Rasengan) isn't blue, and most of Sakura's angrier moments are anime-exclusive.


** ''Franchise/SDGundam'' gets constantly derided by fans for being "kiddy" and "silly" compared to the more serious mainline works, and as such is looked down upon for "trying to dumb down" the franchise as whole. The main culprit for this perception? ''Anime/SDGundamForce'', which received immediate backlash due to Toonami deciding to air it around the same time they aired more typical ''Gundam'' shows (''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'', ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'', [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam the original series]], ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED SEED]]'', etc) which had [[MoodWhiplash stark contrasting tones]] and Gundams that [[WhatMeasureIsNonBadass "look too cutesy"]]. This later leaked onto perception towards the sub-franchise as a whole, with fans declaring it a blemish. The two works that got hit the hardest with this are the two Anime series that came after ''Force'' (''[[Toys/BBSenshiSangokuden Brave Battle Warriors]]'' and ''[[Anime/SDGundamWorldSangokuSoketsuden Sangoku Soketsuden]]''), with people once again judging the Gundam designs again, and writing both off as childish drivel. The thing is, while the claims about some ''SD Gundam'' works being more silly and childish [[Anime/MobileSuitSDGundam aren't EXACTLY inaccurate]], a good number of them still contain a good number of serious moments to them that you would expect from a ''Gundam'' work, they just don't go ''as hard'' as the main ''Gundam'' works do on the darker and more depressing aspects of their stories, and also contain more lighthearted and comedic moments to balance things out. And the claims that ''Force'' is just "a silly kids show'' aren't even entirely accurate, as [[CerberusSyndrome it only acts like that for the first couple of episodes before it gets more serious about its world and characters]] (Though granted, there are still some silly moments here and there).

* The popularity of both the 2000s ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' animated series and the 2010s ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' has made those incarnations of the characters -- from personality to costumes -- '''the''' definitive version of the superhero team, with the comic book versions of these characters being changed to account for the fact that most potential readers under 30 are more familiar with the animated versions. This is most evident with Starfire: all animated versions since have a tendency to [[VerbalTic avoid contractions and say the word "the"]] to various degrees, as well as be a bit of a FunnyForeigner. Meanwhile all versions of the character now have green (rather than red) starbolts.
