* [[http://lparchive.org/Grand-Theft-Auto-San-Andreas-(Screenshot)/ Jerusalem's Let's Play of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] is an illustrated novelization of [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas the game]], as told from CJ's perspective. It adds a ''huge'' amount of story details that weren't in the original work (especially Sweet, [[ADayInTheLimelight who gets one entire chapter explaining his backstory]]), adds a lot of new characters to explain some of the new details, ''and'' adapts some of the glaring plot holes that were present in the game's story so they make sense.

** ''Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'' is a series of ''five'' feature films is planned, all inspired by one 42-page Comic Relief tie-in, more pamphlet than novel, and with no plot. The book ''Fantastic Beasts'' purports to be an in-universe textbook; the films follow the life of its writer, Newt Scamander.

** "The Pit and the Pendulum" has been made into a film several times - generally these adaptations use the actual scene where the main character gets trapped under a giant swinging blade slowly moving downwards for a climax, but have completely different plots that ultimately lead to the situation. ''Film/{{The Raven|2012}}'' (2012) also features an adaptation of "The Pit and the Pendulum" and adds a plot with a killer inspired by the works of Poe.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', the continent of Fourecks first appears as a randome series of one-liners in the early novels, and is then later built into [[Discworld/TheLostContinent a full novel in its own right]]. Creator/AAPessimal pointed out there are just as many odd undeveloped sideways references in the books to the existence of a Discworld take on UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica. These later became the starting point for a cycle of tales.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', the continent of Fourecks first appears as a randome series of one-liners in the early novels, about surfing, wizards' hats with corks suspended on strings round the brim, and a mysterious place on the edge of the world populated by oversized rats who hop on their back legs. Those glimpses of an "Australia"-like place later came together as a whole novel, ''Discworld/TheLastContinent''. Similarly, in ''Discworld/SmallGods'' there is a brief reference to a tropical island where people live idyllic lives - until obne day a massive wave comes out of nowhere and drowns all except a handful of survivors. This by-the-way discussion of the things divine will may or may not choose to do later became a full novel in its own right - ''Literature/{{Nation}}''.

* ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' heavily expands on the death of Batman's parents (and subsequent investigation). It precipitates a MobWar and the rise of Batman's enemies, and inspires Bruce to lead his first investigation into a conspiracy connecting his father's company to Arkham Asylum.

* ''Film/OliveTheOtherReindeer'' was turned by [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Matt Groening]] and Creator/DrewBarrymore from a tiny 20-page children's book into a 90-minute cartoon movie. That ''rocks''. They even preserved the drawing style of the book. You ''must'' watch this movie at Christmas.

* The films also add Galadriel and Saruman (not present in the books) to the story, and keep Elrond as a presence throughout (in the book, he plays no part after the dwarves depart Rivendell). Whether this is for narrative reasons or just celebrity appeal (all three were played by the same famous actors who held the roles in the Lord of the Rings series) is unclear.
