* This happens with [[TheAnimeOfTheGame anime based on]] VisualNovel or otherwise text-heavy games nearly without fail. Examples include:
** ''VideoGame/{{Fire Emblem}}:'' The two-episode OVA of ''Videogame/FireEmblemShadowDragonAndTheBladeOfLight'' was exported to western shores before [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros Marth debuted in]] ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee'', and also before a game in the ''Fire Emblem'' series starring Marth, ''Shadow Dragon,'' was be released in the west.

to:

** ''VisualNovel/EfAFairyTaleOFTheTwo''''VisualNovel/EfAFairyTaleOfTheTwo'': A peculiar case. The release order is this: ''the first tale.'' (first half of the visual novel, released in 2006), ''a tale of memories.'' (first season of the anime, released in 2007), then ''the latter tale.'' and ''a tale of melodies.'' (second half of the visual novel and second season of the anime respectively, both released in 2008). Furthermore, Renji and Chihiro's arc technically came first in ''a tale of memories.'' before ''the latter tale.''

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' started off as a [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo pair of video games]], which was adapted into a few manga, and was then adapted into an [[{{Anime/Pokemon}} anime]]. The anime was the first to be released outside Japan, and when it proved extremely popular, the games were released as well.

This caused a lot of people to think that the video games were adapted from the anime rather than the other way around, a belief that has persisted decades after the franchise got started.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series has never been released outside Japan, as ZUN wants the games to remain {{Doujin}} and fears that any professional translation would be a {{Macekre}} (if you want to play them, [[DigitalPiracyIsOkay he recommends piracy]]). While ''Double Dealing Character'' was eventually made available through Playism, only the menus were translated into English, with the player being expected to use a FanTranslation patch to understand the story. \\
However, ZUN would later give his blessing to a number of Touhou fangames to participate in the ''Play, Doujin!'' scheme (wherein Sony purchased [[UpdatedRerelease enhanced remakes]] of {{Doujin}}s to be sold on the PS4 as {{Indie Game}}s). Several of these games later received English releases, where they were [[TranslationMatchmaking retitled to seem like a series and marketed as "the Touhou games"]].

Its 2016 sequel ''Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny'' is an adaptation of the fifth book, ''Iron Knight, Silver Vase'' (which was also the film's original title).
