** October 2014 saw the release of Panini America's take on a DBZ CCG. Unlike the other examples however this particular release is a direct continuation/update of the game created by Score in 2000. As a result this release is 100% compatible with Score's version and can either be played on it's own or with the original cards.

In official tournaments, players are restricted to cards released after 2014. However, there are a few direct reprints that are exceptions to that rule.

* ''Wrestling/WWERaw Deal''. ''[[Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro WCW Nitro]]'' came out at pretty much the same time, but was doomed by the fact that it released shortly before the death of the Wrestling/{{WCW}}.

* Making TCG out of existing works is one half of {{Bushiroad}}'s business, the other half is making anime, which then may or may not be made into TCG. Derivative TCG from Bushiroad includes:
** ''WeissSchwarz'', which pits [[RuleOfCool Cool]] anime characters versus [[RuleOfCute Cute]] anime characters. {{Averted}} NoExportForYou, so far this seems to be the most successful amongst Bushiroad's non-original TCG. Cool characters come from series such as ''Franchise/BlackRockShooter'' and ''LightNovel/FateZero'', while Cute characters come from series such as ''Manga/LuckyStar'' and ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''.

** ''StarWarsCloneWars Adventures'' is a casual "''VideoGame/FreeRealms''-style" MMO based on ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' TV series. It added its first CCG, Card Commander, shortly after the launch in 2010 - a game with very simplistic gameplay , aimed at the very young audience. In 2012, it added a second came called ''Card Assault''. It's a step up, including Deckbuilding and Strategies, while the ''Card Commander'' is mostly luck-based and has no deckbuilding.

** And then Creator/SquareEnix saw fit to remake this game for the PlayStation2 as part of one of its Japanese rerelease packages, and even exported said remake as a standalone release in North America.

Another more recent category is games which use personal decks just like [=CCGs=], but do away with the "collectible" part. Some like ''TabletopGame/SummonerWars'' or Fantasy Flight Games' "Living Card Games" work the same way but eliminate the randomness of booster pack, letting you buy a whole ExpansionPack instead. Other games like ''TabletopGame/{{Dominion}}'', where building your deck is the game use the underlying concepts in a more innovative way.

* ''{{Deadlands}}'' had the ''Doomtown'' CCG, which had a decidedly niche fandom. The plot and setting were unique, and later [[CanonImmigrant ported over to Weird West canon]]. Perhaps best of all, every card in the CCG had a rank and suit -- just like playing cards -- so they could also be used for poker, or with the tabletop game as the mystical [[CardSharp Huckster's]] spellslinging or a general [[ActionInitiative initiative]] deck.
* ''{{Netrunner}}'' ''technically'' falls into this category, since its background drew upon R. Talsorian Games's ''TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}} 2020'' role-playing setting (despite the game itself being produced by Wizards of the Coast). Of course, even at the time that was arguably a fairly obscure property... The game was pretty solidly designed but just sadly short-lived.
* ''{{Rifts}}'' had a short-lived game, but when they came out with their new "half-edition", they actually took a lot of the original artwork and blew it up into quarter- to full-page spreads in the new rulebook. Acknowledging its failure, Palladium would later have a joke contest; what to do with 50,000 Rifts CCG cards. Which was how many the company had in storage after the CCG failed.
* ''SpellFire'', a hastily put together CCG based on ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' and mostly reused art, created by TSR to cash in on the Magic fad while it lasted. Three years later, TSR went ''bankrupt'' and was bought by WOTC, the creators of Magic... but not before being reduced to using photos of TSR employees in extremely crude costumes as card "art."
