From YKTTW Working Title: Early Installment Weirdness

Meta Four: Would this include early installments of a franchise lacking certain features that went on to become staples? For example, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 introduced the Spin Dash move, which has been in every Sonic game since. So for those used to the later games, the lack of the Spin Dash the original Sonic the Hedgehog feels weird.

SNES Master KI: Yes, it can be any feature or lack thereof that sharply contrasts with later installments in the series.

Unknown Troper: This probably needs expanding or elaborating too, but...
  • Spyro the Dragon: If not for the common title and character design, you'd hardly believe that the pre- and post-reboot games were from the same series.
I don't know the game, but isn't this bit a Captain Obvious?? I mean, it's a reboot! It IS an unrelated series apart from the characters!
