*** Not only the Outrealms are still in ''Fates'', but the concept is explored again in another DLC set known as ''Heirs of Fates'': [[spoiler: The player gets to control [[AscendedExtra the Second Generation children]], each coming from ''Birthright'' or ''Conquest'' universes where [[EvilGod Anankos]] not only ''did'' manage to destroy both realms and the world, but dumps them in a ''Revelation''-gone-wrong sort-of world where [[BarrierMaiden Shigure]] and [[TeamPet Lilith]] are the {{sole survivor}}s. The kids must stop fighting between them, straighten up their differences and, under Shigure and [[SpiritAdvisor Azura's soul]]'s lead, defeat this Anankos so they can leave.]]
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemWarriors'', the ''Fates'' Corrin that shows up to aid Rowan and Lianna is not only [[spoiler: the Female one]], but they wield the [[spoiler: Omega]] Yato as their WeaponOfChoice. This means that [[spoiler: she's from the ''Fates'' games' GoldenPath, ''Revelations''.]]

* ''VideoGame/ManiacMansion'' encourages replays by giving each of the six possible partners different skills to defeat the [[spoiler:purple meteor mind-controlling Dr. Fred]], then making you start the game by picking just two of them. ''VideoGame/DayOfTheTentacle'' stars one of these partners, Bernard, and not
only confirms he canonically was one of the three in Dave's rescue party, but includes several references to optional events that only Syd or Razor could have completed.[[note]]Since Syd and Razor have the ''exact same'' set of abilities, there's no possible way to distinguish further except by outright naming one of them as canonical, which does ''not'' happen. (although, it was planned to include Razor as a playable character, which might hint at her being the canonical 3rd partner after Dave and Bernard)[[/note]]

* An ambiguous case in ''[[VideoGame/MarioParty Mario Party 2]]'', where after everyone from the previous game ([[TheFriendNobodyLikes except for Wario]]) finishes with the construction of "[[{{Egopolis}} Mario Land]]", Wario steps in and proclaims that it should be named "Wario Land", for "he is the Superstar". While these claims are expected of Wario, [[SoreLoser being Wario]] [[SmallNameBigEgo and all]], no one in the group ever calls him out for lying in any way, even as they try and lay claim to the newly constructed "Mario Land", suggesting that he was indeed the winner of the original Mario Party, yet it is also unclear whether "Superstar" refers to his status as the winner or a general claim of superiority (not that it matters anyways, since Wario is given no more important of a role than in the first game).

* Most sequels in the oldest ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' games assume the good guys won the previous installment. But starting with the ''Firestorm'' expansion for ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSun'', Westwood started writing stories with complementary campaigns so that there are no non-canon storylines.

But starting with the ''Firestorm'' expansion for ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSun'', Westwood started writing stories with more tightly-woven, complementary campaigns campaigns[[note]]In earlier games, while there are few direct contradictions between early- to mid-game missions from either faction, there are next to no direct references to them happening if you're not playing as that faction either; in ''Firestorm'', they went as far as to have both factions have the same ending mission, just from different sides of the same larger map.[[/note]] so that there are no non-canon storylines.

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'' allows the player to choose the gender and alignment of Revan from the first game. In either event, the changes are largely cosmetic, gender pretty much only affecting the gender Revan is referred to as (with several mistakes in the script referring to him as a male regardless of your choice) and alignment affecting whether the Republic admiral appearing in certain cutscenes and aiding you in a near-end-game event is Carth or not. In either case, the canon situation is that Revan was a light-side male, while the Jedi Exile played as in ''The Sith Lords'' was a light-side female, named Meetra Surik. However, the second game has hints of TakeAThirdOption, as the canon scenario also includes Handmaiden, who is only an option for a male Exile, as one of Surik's companions. If the game had been finished, Handmaiden was supposed to have joined you if you were on the light side (then Visas Marr if you were on the dark side,
who in the finished game joins you no matter what; presumably too the Disciple, who only joins with a female Exile in the finished game, would have joined regardless of gender or alignment).
