It's just a Winnie the Pooh movie but with more slapstick and the level of black humor that would cause Disney to foam up their mouths.

Now it's basically just a murder simulator with a points counter and slightly depressing cutscenes, most of the story is All There in the Manual.

The story mode is cut out entirely and so are the guns, police, prostitutes, and all other bad forms of city life. Now it's just a driving simulator.

Take your pick: Child's Play with a totally silent Chucky or Halloween with a Michael Myers that doesn't shut up.

Will Smith is now an activist, and the show's rampant political correctness has driven away the audience.

Resident Evil 2, except the True Final Boss is now Sherry Birkin, now infected with the G-Virus and mutated into a monstrosity just like her father, and you have to put her out of her misery by beating her to death with a steel pipe. Even her battle theme is a sad piano music that belongs to a Dark Souls game rather than a typical Resident Evil game.

It's basically a cut bad ending (due to how dark it is), restored as free DLC in the remake so that Sherry's infection is timed. If you managed to get her fully infected, she'll be much harder than Stage 4 or 5 of William Birkin due to the lack of supplies (you only have a pipe, after all) and tight corridors. And the best of all, you get an achievement for killing her in under 2-3 minutes. Enjoy it, you sick bastard.

The AMV is a Deconstruction of the original song itself, as by having the teenager's parent trying to attempt to prevent the disorders from the teenager's, this only makes the younger generation more disconnected from them. It's possible that the teenager didn't exist.

Dark Souls as an MOBA but still retaining its combat system.

It turns into a parable about high school bullying. Takagi and Nishitaka enter a mutually destructive relationship that alternates between Slap-Slap-Kiss and Kiss-Kiss-Slap, ending when one slaps the other in front of everyone in school.

A French Revolution re-enactment (sorta like a Civil War re-enactment in the States) goes terribly wrong when the stand-in for Marie Antoinette gets decapitated by the guillotine, which was supposed to be a toy but was swapped out for a real blade. Now, The Scarlet Pimpernel must rescue all the people that are set to be “executed” by utilizing his superpower. Said superpower? Teleportation of other people (to a safe space). However, the executioners quickly grow savvy and hide the guillotine in increasingly hard-to-reach places. Will The Scarlet Pimpernel save them?
