- Kukuri has fallen victim to this too, she was voiced by Konami Yoshida in the 1st anime, the movie and Doki Doki Densetsu, however since Konami-san barely even has a career nowadays note , Kukuri will now be voiced by Konomi Kohara in the 3rd anime.
- Juju was voiced by Yuri Amano in season 1 and the movie, but by the time Doki Doki Densetsu rolled around Yuri-san was taking her 3 year hiatus from voice acting so Kae Araki voiced her instead. And as of the 2017 anime, she's now voiced by Yo Taichi
- Kita Kita Oyaji was voiced by veteran seiyuu, Kenichi Ogata in 1st anime, the movie and the 2nd anime, but in the 2017 anime, he's voiced by also well known Katsuyuki Konishi
- A round up of who else got darrin'd in Doki Doki Densetsu:

- Let's just say that everyone got darrin'd in the 2017 version and leave it at that.
- Overtook the Manga: When the original anime aired in 1994, the manga was still ongoing, so the part where Barckweiner tasked Nike in seeking the four elemental swords from the original was changed to him telling Nike and Kukuri to find and assemble the different pieces of a magical weather vane which can find Giri. All episodes after this then became anime original content with the anime ending with Nike and Kukuri postponing their battle with Giri so they can go on more adventures. Doki Doki Densetsu aired a few years later in 2000, retconning those events from the first series, this time following the manga's canon, then stopping as it got close to the manga's then-current chapter. The 2017 remake later reboots the first two series, adapting the entire manga, having been finished 14 years ago.
