* The Joe Oriolo WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat TV cartoons have such a different art style, tone, and set of characters and locales from the silent films, that the only thing that ties it and the originally cartoons together is that they both star Felix the Cat. Felix occasionally gets to use his surreal abilities from the silent cartoons (such as detaching his tail to use it as a disguise in "The Magic Bag", and morphing it into a fist to punch back arrows in "Felix Out West") but they're downplayed in favor of using the benefits offered by the Magic Bag of Tricks.

* The ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' series has the main four games as the baseline continuity. Branching off of that are two separate continuities, the [[VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy Metroid Prime]] subseries and [[VideoGame/MetroidOtherM Other M]]. Both have conflict with the original series, but the ''Prime'' series is overall considered more canon than ''Other M''.

* The original ''Franchise/SuperRobotWars'' saga had an alternate continuity as well. The original saga was ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars2'', ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars3'', ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsEX'' and ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4''. Later on, ''2'' and ''4'' had remakes, ''2G'' and the ''F and F Final'' sagas. ''2G'' added in ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'' and ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' while ''F and F Final'' added in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'', ''Anime/AimForTheTopGunbuster'', ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and gave us ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}''

* ''Literature/TheHardyBoys'' have several different continuities, as the publishers try to keep the series relevant to modern kids. There's the "Blue Spines", which is the blue hardcover books & digests (and that's broken down to the Original Texts and the rewrites of the '70s), the Casefiles, Undercover Brothers, the Clues Brothers, the new Adventures series, and the second "Case files" series which has little to do with the first. There's even three different TV continuities, The HardyBoysNancyDrewMysteries of TheSeventies (the best known of the TV versions), the Mickey Mouse Club serials of the 50s, and The Hardy Boys Casefiles of the '90s.

** On a more obscure note, Creator/TakeshiShudo's [[LightNovel/PocketMonstersTheAnimation novelizations]] of the anime are fairly revisionist in the approach to events. For example, Ash never obtains the three starters, plus Brock's siblings are only his half-siblings.

The Pokémon anime's setting is also portrayed as a CrapsackWorld, in which a person is legally an adult at ''age ten''.

** There are also a ([[NoExportForYou Japan-only]]) three-part [[LightNovel/DigimonAdventure novelization]] of the first series which, although co-written by Hiroyuki Kakudo (the Adventure director) and Masaki Hiro (a main writer), has several episodes' events play out differently than depicted in the anime.
