 Abstract
This study is on the modification of characters` role and personality between spin-off animation and original works. For this, one of box office hits, (2011) and (2015) have been analyzed with Enneagram and Greimas` Actantial model. The result shows, firstly, the protagonist of spin-off work plays subject role in a new narrative comparing that he/she plays faithful helper`s role in original work. Secondly, the protagonist`s personality does not show big difference between in spin-off and in original. But, anyway, there`s a small change that the secondary personality in original stands out as a primary personality in spin-off. Finally, the standing out personality of the protagonist tends to be `achiever` or `loyalist`, those of stereotype successful animation characters. In conclusion, the role change according to new narrative seems to be unavoidable. And, the personality change is, too. However, the personality change is partial and it has continuity from the original considering the potential audiences` expectation.
