* In the start of the ''Manga/YuGiOh'' manga volumes, Kazuki Takahashi would have a small paragraph explaining either how he got started on the story itself (he wanted a ''shounen'' hero who never hits anyone, hence games), how a certain character was conceived (Kaiba started from him overhearing an arrogant card player and Marik from a fear of having a cellphone meant his publishers would annoy him in his free time), or random observations as the story progressed (noting his ArtEvolution from the first manga). He would also occasionally include bonus games at the end of chapters, sometimes based on the games in question that the characters played (a mini-version of the Monster World TabletopRPG, a monster-battle maze game based on the Player Killer Meikyuu Brothers, etc.), that the readers could photocopy and try out for themselves.

* Two types of bonus strips are available for fans of ''WebComic/DumbingOfAge'': Patreon only strips that focus on characters not involved in the current storyline (some of which are chosen by fans), and not-safe-for-work comics posted on Slipshine.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/AManOfIron'': When writing Jon and [[spoiler: Natasha]]'s wedding in ''A Crack of Thunder'', the author apparently had a typo where he says they finish the ceremony with a "kill" instead of a "kiss". While he fixed this, he then realized that such a thing wouldn't actually be out of place in [[CrapsackWorld Westeros]], so he wrote a non-canon scene at the end of the relevant chapter where the wedding ends with them ceremoniously killing [[ButtMonkey Lancel Lannister]] and desecrating his corpse.

** ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' and ''Manga/XxxHolic'' share an omake AlternateUniverse called [[HighSchoolAU Horitsuba Gakuen]]. It was used both in the Drama [=CDs=] and in short extra comics.
* The Japanese DVD release of ''Anime/MaiHime'' includes a tongue-in-cheek "trailer" for an allegedly upcoming feature length film which pits the heroine of that show against the heroine of its successor, ''Anime/MaiOtome''; the end of the trailer promises its release in the Spring of 20006. Yes, ''twenty'' thousand and six.
** The show itself also provides one after every episode's PostEpisodeTrailer. Some are silly, some are serious, and at least one is a TearJerker, but the vast majority of them provide FanService.
* ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' features an omake after every episode involving conversations between the Tachikoma. These shorts are called ''Tachikomatic Days'', and feature surreal humour.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has "Shinigami Illustrated Picture Book" at the end of almost every episode after the beginning of the Soul Society arc. At first just information on the shinigami leaders, this soon became canon omake--generally humorous moments that had happened off-screen during the span of (or just after) the regular episode. Some of them are even animated adaptations of omake chapters written by Kubo Tite himself.
** Those segments have been dubbed in English as well, but they're only on the DVD's and are renamed "Illustrated Guide To Soul Reapers."
** There's also the Arrancar Encyclopedia, in which [[DracoInLeatherPants Gin]] tells us about the aspects of the Arrancar; and the Quincy Encyclopedia, where Ryuken discusses Quincy equipment, and other segments.
* Starting in Episode 22, at the beginning of almost every episode of ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo'' is a short segment separate from the main plot before starting the recap, some of which are stories that were originally at the end of each volume of the manga.
* ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'' had as [=DVD=] specials two mini-episodes of "Shakugan no Shanatan" and one of "Itadaki no Hecatetan", featuring a pocket-sized version of the titular character that spoofed events in the main series.
** Ditto for ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' featuring Index-tan and shout outs to ''Shana'' and ''Toradora!'' Creator/JCStaff likes this sort of thing.
* ''Manga/VideoGirlAi'' featured an Omake Theater segment after nearly every episode.
* ''Anime/GunXSword'' has ''Gun X Sword-san'', what amounts to a computer-generated hand-puppet show involving Wendy, Kameo (her pet turtle), and other characters as needed.
* ''[[Manga/{{Saiyuki}} Saiyuki Reload]]'''s [=UraSai=] segments are random bits of silliness at the end of each episode, meant to be more kid-friendly because the show originally aired right before Anime/{{Pokemon}}. They're worth it, if only for Goku's MagicalGirl parody.
-->'''Sanzo:''' * firing his gun* What the hell are you doing?
-->'''Goku:''' A little... fanservice...
-->'''Sanzo:''' For whom?
* ''Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater'':
** ''Anime/NadiasOmakeTheater'' is ten ''omakes'' that contain [[CrackFic crack plots]] and [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary information]] about the plot, the characters, and ''20,000 Leagues under the Sea''.
** There also exist fairly kitschy official ''Nadia'' Anime Music Videos, which were originally released on ''Nadia'' [=LCDs=].
* The uncut English release of the uncut ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' box set comes with a "Mininija" (a {{Chibi}}-style figurine) and a booklet with the complete (albeit untranslated) storyboards of one of the episodes that are included in the box set.
* Every episode of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' ends with a "Leave it to Kero-chan" segment where Kero introduces Sakura's outfit of the week.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has "Professor Oak's Lecture", where the Professor talks about one species of Pokémon and usually ends up getting attacked by it.
* The [=DVDs=] of the full ''Anime/SkyGirls'' series contain comedic extras in which Eika tries her hand at fishing. No, really.
* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' started its life as a [[TheAnimeOfTheGame mini-game]] that was included in the ''VisualNovel/TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever'' fandisc which depicted the adventures of the [[TokenMiniMoe main character's little sister]] as a MagicalGirl.
** The omake present in the manga loves to play with a lot of the tropes associated with the Franchise/LyricalNanoha franchise, particularly the relationship between Nanoha and Fate, [[spoiler: with Nanoha either unaware of Fate's feelings, aware but not returning them, or Fate in full PsychoLesbian mode]], as well as Erio and Caro [[spoiler: with Erio wanting to get away from Caro, whos is a {{Yandere}} in the omake]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/TheGodSquad'' is an odd one as its omakes are actually the opening of each chapter, where we get a random scene that almost never has anything to do with the story but concerns events elsewhere in the world.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/KitsuneNoKenFistOfTheFox'' has a collection of Gaiden chapters (posted on FanfictionDotNet as a separate story alongside the main tale) which are presented in non-chronological order and which in some cases introduce characters who don't appear in the main story but are still important to the story's overall plot. Some chapters take place prior to the start of the main story, some take place in between the story's various chapters or arcs, and some take place during the 15-year-long TimeSkip before the GrandFinale.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': A handful of omake chapters, some written by Anon e Mouse Jr. and featuring his [[AuthorAvatar self-insert character]], who has the powers (and then some) of [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Kamen Rider Skull]] and was created for an as-yet unwritten story. They are non-canon to this story, but he writes them for fun anyway.
** The chapter 11 omake is an alternate take on a scene from the canon chapter 11, in which the self-insert tells the characters the truth about the "demon bunny named Angel" before quoting [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Tsukasa Kadoya]] to them and disappearing into another world.
** The chapter 24 omake is a more serious one, with the self-insert giving Night Blade some advice and his name:
-->"Call me Reel. Heir to the powers of Sokichi Narumi, the original Kamen Rider Skull."
** A third omake, posted between chapters 25 and 26 and written by both Evilhumour and Anon e Mouse Jr. (but without his self-insert), focuses on Father Evergreen Road.
** The fourth omake, posted after the epilogue, features [[spoiler: Night Blade becoming the new Alicorn of Love. Regrettably non-canon, but Anon e Mouse Jr. had fun writing it after Evilhumour suggested the idea.]]
** The fifth and final omake (and the last chapter of the story) is the third appearance of Anon e Mouse Jr.'s self-insert, this time non-canon to the character's previous appearances and involving a total plot derailment brought on when he uses his full power and most dangerous ability.
** The omakes continue in ''Picking Up the Pieces'', with Reel making another appearance in an alternate take on ''that'' fic's chapter 11 and revealing his previous appearances had actually happened in dimensions that were nearly identical to the fic's canon. This time, he pays the Captains a visit and expresses his opinion of InternalAffairs, along with informing Violet Lulamoon of her being descended from a so-called enemy of the previous Bearers.
