The Rangers are vegetables with plant motif, the monsters are Lovecraftian Botanical Abomination, even the Zords are made of wood. Nevertheless, it somehow manages to keep a few Christian messages in the show.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, except a new route is added, in which you can end the war and avenge your crewmates through the most direct way by killing everyone indiscriminately, culminating at you finally get to kill Mihaly for real. Also, in this route, your first targets are Mihaly's granddaughters.

[up] While the standard route remains the same, and is the one most commonly focused on, the secondary one is horribly written and passes so many Despair Event Horizons that even the heartless Mercenaries of ACZ prefer the former.

[down] Girls' Frontline but as a actual console game with a gameplay art-style that matched the tone.

It becomes a generic Call of Duty ripoff with post apocalyptic theme, all the characters are westernised into generic girls with rainbow-coloured hair. Oh, even the strategic elements are all gone.

Mirror's Edge, except it now uses the infamous clunky control scheme straight out from Resident Evil 2, the camera angles are fixed, your character is slow as hell, and you still need to do all the parkour stuff with that infamous control scheme...

It doesn't even get on shelves before the game ends up out of sale for its sheer 'quality'.

It is now hailed as one of the worst games of all time, nearly rivalling ET.

[down] Titanfall 2 but anime.

It's basically an Animesque ripoff making fun of every Asian country not named Japan.

It's basically a Romantic Comedy, but later on switches into an adaptation of the Betty and Veronica storyline of the 2015 comics, albeit with even more detail.

Mad City... As a Marvel Cinematic Universe film.

It basically becomes the first Roblox movie. It is set in another universe within the MCU verse, that is about a chaotic fight between the heroes and villains, before the Avengers themselves intervened, followed by their enemies.

Touhou, but as a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure styled manga/anime series

It's actually a fairly good adaptation, with intense, detailed fights and comprehensive relationships - though it does suffer from art style issues and Grey and Gray Morality, with Reimu being a decidedly brutal and flawed protag.

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers by IDW Publishing, styled in the vein of their TMNT comic book.

The Rescue Rangers rescue and help other people, as well as fight crime. However, they do so by also being ninjas who beat criminals. Also, the cast become like that after a radioactive experiment, and they have to fight a criminal organization too.

Undertale, but as a Touhou style bullet hell shooter instead of a RPG, and EarthBound style story

"The RPG where nobody has to die" becomes "The RPG where EVERYBODY DIES!" The Underworld becomes a hotbed of conflict and strife as every monster relies on More Dakka just to survive. Gameplay-wise, Sans is still the True Final Boss, provided you Kill ’Em All without missing a single one.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. No, not Rimuru...but those cute, blue, beady-eyed slimes from the Dragon Quest series.

Your life at the beginning is nightmarish as you need to run away from the hero just to survive, but then you continue to evolve until you become the infamous Metal Slime, and now everyone, even the hero, falls in love with you solely by the virtue of being a Metal Slime.

Call of Duty as a Raising Sim.

You and your squadmates have to go through training drills between missions, actually giving some of the weird meta-RPG Elements a purpose. No romance, though.

It winds up become a high concept work of arts that most people don't even understand, and it flops.

Monster Hunter, except your player character and NPC actually age up and grow old as the time progresses.

You start out as a kid hunter, then you grow up into an experienced adult hunter who can take down an Elder Dragon, and then you become an old veteran who teaches other hunters how to hunt monsters.

Of course, your character will eventually die of old age.

Surprisingly enough, this concept actually proves to be a great idea... Too bad it's limited to the Bamco arcades. At least it doesn't use data cards, but uses Banapass cards (though good luck trying to play this outside of Japan)

Wangan Midnight but it's animated by ufotable and has Eurobeat as its soundtracks (yes this includes the Eurobeat from the Live-action movie and Love and Gold from Maximum Tune 6.

It sadly never sees an international release and fades into obscurity except for a very devoted cult following.

Too spooky for most kids who watch it and too childish for Slender Man enthusiasts, it fails to find an audience during its initial run, but later gets appreciated for its charm (plus, who would've guessed Tim Curry worked for Slender Man so well?)

A big-budget live-action adaptation of all the major events from Season One of Steven Universe, with the intention of turning it into a franchise. (Even better, it's directed by Guillermo Del Toro).

It ends up being like The Last Airbender- watered-down, with Amethyst randomly being a narrator with no other characterization and all the major development happening offscreen. You'd think Shamalamadingdong directed it, but really, it was just an off day for G d T.

Studio Ghibli's The Lord of the Rings.

It's a couple of hours shorter than the live-action movies and some subplots had to be cut for time, leading to a rushed ending...but you do have to admit that it looks absolutely beautiful.
