* In ''VideoGame/MediEvil2'', Sir Daniel Fortesque is resurected in the Victorian era. Granted there're still medieval elements like the swords.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Yakuza}}'': series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu was only ever in the yakuza in the opening act of the first game, being exiled from his clan after taking the fall for his oyabun's murder. The games that follow depict Kiryu's attempts to live a normal, law-abiding life after walking away from the criminal underworld, with the fourth and fifth games featuring playable characters that aren't even yakuza (although they often deal with various yakuza groups). The prequel, ''Yakuza 0'', zigzags this: Kiryu is in the yakuza, but also on the run from them; while deuteragonist Goro Majima is an exiled yakuza trying to get back in the good graces of his clan.

* While ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' did have the main ape himself as the leading character, the next two sequels would demote him to DistressedDude while having other characters being the stars of the games. Both sequels are still named after Donkey Kong, even though he doesn't do anything.

to:

* The Select button. It's called like that because it was originally intended to be used to select options in title screens, settings and similar along with the Start button. Back then, pressing Select would put the cursor on the next option. However, developers later opted for letting players navigate with the directional buttons. Despite this, Select was kept with name unchanged, even though said button no longer serves the function the name refers to.

* ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4'' is not set in Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, nor even in a knock-off like Fazbear's Fright - rather, the action happens within a normal house.

* "UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame" is itself artifactual. Long before the first VideoGame/Pong machine was plugged in, not only had their pinball predecessors moved out of spaces specifically intended for them to bars and other retail establishments, even those spaces themselves had long stopped putting their offerings in the recessed arches that "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcade_(architecture) arcade]]" implied.

* The Famicom itself was an example of this as well. Originally, Nintendo planned for the machine to have more PC-like features, including a keyboard, modem, and floppy drive, and it was going to have other types of applications besides games. However, they eventually decided to trim it down to just be a game console, but they kept the name ([[MarketBasedTitle But only in Japan, obviously]]).
