    Introduces exclusive characters, such as Blunk and the Mage.
    The name of Phobos is mentioned in the first episode.
    Caleb has no family in the comics, as he was a Murmurer.
    The Princess name of Elyon is Weena.
    In the show all the Guardians can fly. In the comics, only Hay Lin can fly.
    It took a few episodes for Cedric to locate and take Elyon.
    In the comics, Elyon's birthday is on October 31, where as the show has it as March 13.
    Differently from the comics, Elyon would be reduced to a black rose instead of dying from having her powers siphoned.
    Matt finds out about the Guardians in The Stolen Heart. In the comics, he does not know about the girl's secret until Will tells him.
    In the comics, Hay Lin's grandmother dies. In the animated series, she doesn't.
    In the comics, Xin Jing is not the daughter of the Jade Emperor.
    In the comics, Hay Lin has knee-high stockings when transformed; on the show her legs are completely covered.
    In the show Irma has longer hair.
    In the show the girls are not as powerful as they are in the comics.
    In the comics, the Heart of Kandrakar is kept in Will's palm of her hand, but in the show it is kept as a necklace.
    In the animated series, the Astral Drops when created don't know anything and disappear at the mention of 'Astral Drops'. In the comics they are created as a perfect copy (with the exception at first of Will's Astral dDrop) and disappear when requested.
    In the show, Will's dormouse is named Mr. Huggles and is grey. In the comics, he has a different name (he is nameless in the US, and has many other names in other countries) and is black and brown.
    In the show Cornelia (Earth) is portrayed as the strongest of the four elemental Guardians. In the comics, it is Taranee (Fire).
    The comics have twelve portal openings in the Veil, while the show has it as unlimited.
    In the comics, the dormouse remains with Will, but in the series he is passed on to Irma, and then Hay Lin.
    In the show, Cornelia often comments on boys, whereas in the comics she detests boys and only loves Caleb.
    Will and the other girls are mentioned as 12 years old in the show, where as the comics show them as 13-14 years old.
    In the comics, both Will and Taranee are new to Sheffield Institute, but in the series Will is the only new girl; Taranee was new last year.
    In the comics, Prince Phobos' advisors are known as "Murmurers". The show has them named "Whisperers".
    In the comics, Hay Lin's play turns out well, but in the show it turns out very badly, and is partially insulted by Mrs Knickerbocher.{thanks to the astral drops!}
    In the show, most of the people of Meridian are humans, but in the comics they are actually lizards or reptiles of some form.
    In the books, Irma is unable to animate water from thin air; stating: "I can't just wring the stuff out of thin air". In the show, however, she can draw it out of the air (since moisture is always in the air there is much question of why she can't draw water from the air).
    In the series, Caleb knows the girl's true form, while in the comics, until the end of Part Two, he only knows them in their Guardian form.

    Impossible. The Stone of Threbe was thrown in the volcano Threbe after it has found Weena back and brought her home. The stone was found back when the volcano was dead. Besides of that all Meridian inhabitants mentioned Elyon as she was named on Earth.

    He forgot it all after Nerissa left his body. In issue 40 he finally found out when Will had to defend him and herself against Cedric.

    And in the comics Cornelia has much longer hair when transformed.

    And in the comics they have more varieties in their powers as well.

    To be precise: the Heart is in her body, and appears in the palm of her hand.

    In the comics they improve and get consciousness, and finally turn themselves against their masters.

    And white.

    Especially when she's raging mad, so dangerous is a better description.

    In the comics she also finds Taranee's brother Peter (who isn't shown in the tv-series) a cute guy.

    Though in the comics there are creatures who have a human likeness. The skin colours however are different. Only the Royal family is entirely human.

    Strange enough Caleb meets Will and Cornelia in their human form without being surprised halfway part two, in contradiction to his reaction when he saw the real Cornelia in issue 21.

    Actualy, (if you read the faq's thread) It was in the woods in the dark and was only for about 5sec, before he got attacked.

    when did they show it the most powerful ? they show it more on scenes than others (specially more than fire) but not more powerful than others (however it is the 2nd powerful element as we concluded in the power pull thread)

    this was in the first arc of the books, in third saga ( the ari saga ) in Water Shadows issue #25 she animated water from thin air near the end of the comic, when she blowed the door up with a thug.

    I recognize a lot of these facts from the WITCH entry on Wikipedia. I wonder how much of this was copied from Wiki and how much of it was typed from memory.

    There are a lot more, it depends on how detailed you want to go.

    For example the hair color of Yan Lin, white in the comics but black in the series.
    Or the small opening in Taranee's turtleneck which is different in the comics.

    Small Art differences are not so important as story differences.  Art differences will happen depending on the artist and character designs for each of the two mediums...   the changes or differences I am most interested in are the ones that seperate comic from cartoon.  Caleb's origins, how the characters meet, and so on... but like most all comics or books translated to motion picture... changes will happen...  pressing a detailed issue of the comic book into 22 minutes is going to force sacrifice.

    Valid point, but also note that there are 12 issues (plus one special) per "season" in the comics, while there are 26 shows per season in the show. Not that 44 minutes means no sacrifice, but this explains how some extras get added into the TV show as well as certain things being taken out.

    I was speaking more on terms of the art and sophistication that the comic version allows.  You could animate the entire comic, perhaps making the show an hour long... but there will still be differences based on the art; who does it, how it's done and so on.

    It's obvious that small things like outfits and hair style won't remain identical in all cases.

    Granted; I'd love to see the comics animated in unedited form; but there is so much exposition of the characters, as well as episodes that have little action then showing the lives of the characters; that corporations would not feel thos episodes to be 'entertaining' enough to the attention span of the 'targeted' audience.

    not true...there are a lot of special issues each year. but most of them don't even contain comics. and if they do, it's got nothing to do with the basic story.
