** Played straight in ''Ninja Gaiden'', as Jo Hayabusa miraculously survives and even climbs out of the collapsing ruins with a makeshift crutch and splint. He joins Ryu and Irene for a victory laugh at the end of the book.

** Considering how simple the games' plots were, a lot had to be added, and many of the stories added a great deal of backstory, or even additional characters. The most notable here is ''VideoGame/BlasterMaster'', which adds Eve, a HumanAlien from another planet, as the original owner of the SOPHIA III vehicle. These details would later become canon in ''Blasting Again'', and elements of the novel were used in ''Zero''.

** One of the stranger examples is the ''Simon's Quest'' book, which adds elements such as the heroes needing to rescue a woman named Linda Entwhistle who is apparently Simon's girlfriend, Dracula as a lackey for Thanatos, Master of Death, and an encounter with a friendly troll named Freddie. Strange because the kid who accompanies Simon is [[AscendedFanboy a fan]] of the ''Castlevania'' games and he specifically enters the world of the games, not just a fantasy world based on a video game in the reader's world.
