* Similar to the Ghostbusters case above, ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' is an Alternate Continuity from the movies. The movie actually exists in this universe and is the story of the MIB leaked by the Worms using a human suit and the name of Creator/LowellCunningham. The series even mentions WillSmith and TommyLeeJones as the actors playing K and L and shows them (in very accurate cartoon versions) on camera.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': A famous example of this is that the [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse extensive Expanded Universe]], which spans over 30 years of literature, has now been placed into one called ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'', thanks to the upcoming Sequel Trilogy (''Episodes [[Film/TheForceAwakens VII]]'','' VIII ''&'' IX'') as well as ''Film/RogueOne'' and any other stand-alone film in that continuity.

In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Ben Solo is Han and Leia's son, instead of there being Jacen and Jaina Solo, or Luke's son, Ben Skywalker. In ''Film/RogueOne'', the Rogue One team intercepts the Death Star plans, overwriting Kyle Katarn's involvement in stealing the plans in the ''VideoGame/DarkForces'' series, or any of the other stories involving Operation Skyhook.

*** The snarl of continuities is enough to require classification [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Universal_stream within the work itself]]. According to the best in-universe sources (the TransformersTransTech continuity, which acts as the de facto hub of the Transformers multiverse) there are at at least 15,962,782 cataloged "universal streams" (read: alternate continuities) known to exist, with 1,176,325 of those having "come to termination". Those are just the ones that they know of- the actual number is undoubtedly much larger than this.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanTheTelltaleSeries'' takes some rather large liberties with the Batman mythology, as among other things, Harvey Dent becomes mayor, it's one of the times the death of the Waynes is an assassination, the Penguin was a childhood friend of Bruce's, [[spoiler: and both Thomas Wayne and Vicki Vale underwent Adaptational Villainy with Thomas being in league with Carmine Falcone and Hamilton Hill, and Vicki Vale being a biological member of the Arkham family, her parents being killed by Thomas, suffering abuse from her adopted parents, and leading a revolt against Gotham's elite because of it. Also, depending on a choice made towards the end of episode of either [[EyeScream Alfred]] or [[EarNotch Bruce himself]] will bear a constant reminder of the events of the game.]]

* [[VideoGame/TheAmazingSpiderMan The tie-in]] [[VideoGame/TheAmazingSpiderMan2 games]] of the ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'' ultimately became this because of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2''. The first game was intended to take place after [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan the first movie]] and features Alistair Smythe as the main villain, ComicBook/BlackCat as a sidequest, and a human/rhino hybrid version of... well, the Rhino. Then despite approving of the use of those characters in the game, Sony went around and changed their minds as the second movie featured a still-breathing Smythe as pre-Electro Max Dillion's boss, Felicia Hardy as Harry's personal assistant, and a more traditional version of the Rhino at the beginning and end of the movie, so the second game retold the events, but set in the universe the first game established, with the movie's main villains Electro and Green Goblin being DemotedToExtra, Gwen Stacy being AdaptedOut, and the main villains being ComicBook/TheKingpin and ComicBook/{{Carnage}}.

** 2. The {{Non Serial Movie}}s, all based on the ''Slayers Special'' novels. While the first four (chronicling the protagonists' early adventures with a [[GoldfishPoopGang flaky sorceress]] who just so happens to be the long lost sister of one of her later allies) is a plausible start before the anime, the fifth is problematic, as it involves the four main characters from the tv series set in a way that could be after seasons 2 or 3.

* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'', consists of the [[Manga/YuGiOh original]] manga continuity which includes a Side Story ''Manga/YuGiOhR'' (which is of disputed canon); the Toei series continuity; the ''Anime/YuGiOh'' ''Duel Monsters'' and ''[[Anime/YuGiOhGX GX]]'' continuity; and an alternate manga retelling of ''GX''. There are also two Non Serial Movies (one for each anime) and the non-canonical ''Capsule Monsters'' mini-series. Then there is ''[[Anime/YuGiOh5Ds 5D]]'s'', which might be an Alternate Universe.

** The "original" SMT continuity is ''not'' the one that gets the lion's share of the focus these days (though it's still going strong in its own right); that honor goes to the ''Devil Summoner/[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' sub-series, which initially spun out of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIf''. It's the first branch of SMT to be truly successful overseas (''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' both breaking six-figures sold overall), turning SMT into a legitimate CashCowFranchise for Creator/{{Atlus}}.

* In ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', "Mission Mode" takes place in a separate universe where {{Yandere}}-chan is not a lovesick psychopath, but a killer-for-hire, like a schoolgirl version of [[VideoGame/{{Hitman}} Agent 47]].
