* A video game adaption of ''Series/AmericasTestKitchen'' was released for the NintendoDS. In reality, it's an ''America's Test Kitchen'' game InNameOnly, as it is actually a [[MissionPackSequel Recipe Pack Sequel]] to ''Personal Trainer: Cooking''.

* The Italian dub of ''[[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash* Star]]'' was going to be dolled up as a sequel '''to its own AlternateContinuity''', the original ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure''. Apparently, "Nagisa and Honoka" looked different because of a PlotRelevantAgeUp... even though Saki and Mai are ''younger'' than the old heroines left off at the end of ''Max Heart''. Luckily they changed idea.
** That's because the new heroines were {{Expies}} of the original duo to the point that saying it was them under new animation styles would have worked ''quite'' well, at least until the team-up movies started. In the ''end'' it's lucky that they changed their minds.
* ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'' was an amalgamation of three different series into one; ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', ''Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross'', and ''Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada''. None of these have anything in common, other than TransformingMecha and a similar artistic style.
** The ''Robotech'' movie also added scenes from ''Anime/Megazone23'', tacked onto footage from ''Southern Cross'' (even creator Carl Macek thought this was a dumb idea at the time, and so did the handful of viewers who saw one of the test releases).

* It was a common occurrence in American comics to alter comic scripts (and sometimes already drawn stories!) made for one series to another one when needed; one example was a ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars'' story converted into a ''Franchise/StarWars'' fill-in issue by MarvelComics.

* In the 1970s, Jim Starlin and Steve Englehart created Shang-Chi, a new Asian martial-arts character, for MarvelComics. Because Marvel had recently acquired the rights to FuManchu, it was decided that Shang-Chi would be Fu Manchu's son.

* Creator/FantasyFlightGames secured the rights to the old Dune board game, but were unable to get the Dune license itself. Their solution was to recycle the mechanics and set it in the backstory of their own ''TabletopGame/TwilightImperium'' series as ''REX: Final Days of an Empire''. Some of this was pretty straightforward, with the races pairing well with Dune's factions; the ProudMerchantRace Hacan having the same gameplay as the Spacing Guild makes perfect sense for example. Others are kind of ridiculous; the Xxcha might be skilled diplomats, but giving them the Bene Gesserit's JustAsPlanned victory condition is just silly.

* From ''Series/{{Columbo}}'':
** "No Time to Die" is an adaptation on the ''Literature/EightySeventhPrecinct'' novel ''So Long as You Both Shall Live'', with Columbo taking the place of multiple 87th Precinct cops (in the novel Bert Kling's new wife Augusta is kidnapped on the day they're married, in this adaptation it's Columbo's nephew's wife who's taken). This one stands out as it is the only episode to feature any member of Columbo's family - namely, Detective Andy Parma.
** "Undercover" is also an ''Literature/EightySeventhPrecinct'' adaptation, of the novel ''Jigsaw''. Unlike the above, this version includes one of the characters from the 87th (Arthur Brown, who's also one of the cops investigating in the book).
** "Uneasy Lies The Crown" is an unusual example -- the script had been written for ''Columbo'', but Falk passed on it. With a few changes to the plot it was instead filmed as "Affair of the Heart" in the sixth season of ''Series/McMillanAndWife'' with Larry Hagman as the dentist. In 1990 during season 9, Falk chose to go ahead with the script. A good chunk of the dialog and even character names are the same although certain major plot points differ -- though Falk apparently stuck to the script as it had been originally written. Nancy Walker, who had been a regular on ''Series/McMillanAndWife'', appeared as one of the celebrity poker players in the ''Columbo'' version. Columbo even points out that she was in "the Rock Hudson mystery show".
