* Author Creator/IsaacAsimov agreed to write a novelization of the 1966 movie ''Film/FantasticVoyage'' only if he was allowed to modify the story to fix the [[PlotHole plot holes]] and science errors in the screenplay. Asimov wrote quickly, while the film's production was plagued with delays. As a result, the novelization was released six months before the movie, leading many fans to conclude that Asimov's novel was the original version and the (much weaker) film was an adaptation.
* ''Film/CrouchingTigerHiddenDragon'' was based on the fourth book of a {{wuxia}} pentalogy by Wang Dulu, none of which have been officially translated into English. 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).

* Second adaptation first: The video game based on ''TheWitcher'' is better known than the successful Polish literary series that has yet to be fully translated into English. The previous film and TV adaptation were shown to the rest of the world first, but not many saw it.

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has been distributed internationally a lot more than its source material. This isn't much of a surprise since the original ''Nanoha'' was a mini-scenario of ''VisualNovel/TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever'', [[BleachedUnderpants a hentai game]].

* ''Film/{{Memento}}'' is based on the short story "Memento Mori" by Jonathan Nolan, Creator/ChristopherNolan's brother, which would not be published until after the film was released. Because of this, the film did not qualify for a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination at the Academy Awards (it was nominated for Best Original Screenplay instead).

* 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.

** ''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.''
