* 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".

* After the success of ''Film/{{Django}}'', several {{spaghetti western}}s were retitled (especially in Germany) to make them look like sequels to ''Django''. He wasn't the only character to get this treatment: Johnny Ringo, {{Sartana}} and [[Film/{{TheSabataTrilogy}} Sabata]] all got unofficial sequels.

** Similarly ''Time to Kill'' starring Lloyd Nolan as Mike Shayne is actually an adaptation of another Marlowe novel, ''The High Window''.

**Sometimes the name change didn't go beyond the title. For example in ''Kill Django...Kill First'' the hero is called Johnny Magee. And in ''Django kill, if you live...shoot!'' the main character has no name.
** ''Viva Django!'' did start out as a proper sequel for ''Film/{{Django}}'', but as Franco Nero was unavailable (he was staring in Theatre/{{Camelot}}), the role was recast with Terence Hill. Subsequently the movie was marketed in the Netherlands as a sequel to ''[[{{Trinity}} They Call Me Trinity]]''.
** Yul Brynner's character in ''[[Film/{{TheSabataTrilogy}} Adios, Sabata]]'' is called Indio Black in the original Italian version, however the name change actually makes sense in this case, since both ''Sabata'' and ''Adios, Sabata'' were directed by Gianfranco Parolini and Indio Black is exactly the same character as Sabata, only with a different costume.
*The Bruno Mattei movie ''Rats: Night of Terror'' was marketed in Germany as a sequel to ''Film/{{Escape 2000}}''.

* Creator/EEDocSmith's ''Triplanetary'' originally had nothing to do with his later ''Literature/{{Lensman}}'' novels, but was heavily rewritten after their success to serve as a {{prequel}}, with ''First Lensman'' written specifically to bridge the two storylines. Triplanetary is something of a double example, since it wasn't even a book at all to start with; it was three entirely unrelated short stories which were [[FixupNovel rewritten to be a single book]] so that the book could then be used as part of the Lensman series.

* ''VideoGame/BuckRogersPlanetOfZoom'' apparently originated as a game titled ''Zoom 909''; it has no real connections to ''ComicStrip/BuckRogers'' beyond the title screen. Interestingly, Creator/{{Sega}} announced three other games for the UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} based on the same license, but due to TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 none of them saw the light of day.

* It is rumored that most, if not all of the stories Casshern Sebastian Goto writes for [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} The Black Library]] are actually rewritten from original military SF pieces he had previously tried and failed to publish with other companies, which would certainly explain his [[TheyJustDidntCare cavalier attitude]] towards 40k {{Canon}}.
