* ''DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency'' was likewise cribbed from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E6Shada Shada]]", an uncompleted ''Series/DoctorWho'' story. Professor Chronotis was originally a Shada character, as is the fictional college he works at (St. Cedd's), his time machine (which closely resembles a TARDIS), and his unnaturally long life. The story itself also derives from his completed ''Doctor Who'' "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E2CityOfDeath City of Death]]."

* ''Gunforce II'', one of the last UsefulNotes/{{Arcade Game}}s Irem produced, was titled ''Geo Storm'' in Japan and has only a vague resemblance to ''Gunforce''.

* The commentary track for ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' reveals this trope was in play. When asked to do a sequel to ''Film/{{Alien}}'', Creator/JamesCameron wrote an outline for his thoughts on a film, which was actually based on something he wrote a few months earlier with the Alien characters dropped in. (helps it fit with what the producers had already thought to put in a sequel)

** Several years later, ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' characters would replace the Yoshi characters in ''Pokémon [[VideoGame/PanelDePon Puzzle League]]'', and from there, the last part of that name stuck.
*** An interesting case for the latter is that PPL was a dolled up installment of a back then canceled ''Panel de Pon'' sequel for N64. The original game was later released as part of ''Nintendo Puzzle Collection'' for Nintendo Gamecube. Now, if they decided to [[NoExportForYou export that game]].

* The script for ''Film/SuperheroMovie'' was originally intended for ''Film/ScaryMovie 4'', until they realised it had no horror movie references, and so it was made it into a Superhero spoof.



* In 1983, Music/{{Yes}} had kinda reunited (four of the five members of the new band - all save guitarist Trevor Rabin - had been in Yes at one time or another, though never all at once) and recorded ''90125'', but had decided to rechristen themselves Cinema. The recording company said it would make more sense to keep the Yes name, and so they did (though the guitarist objected, as he wanted a new band instead of inadvertently joining a reunion).
** After several former members of the band formed a parallel group with the ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin name "Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe"[[note]]which some [=DJs=] dubbed "Yes (Not Yes)," playing off the group name Was (Not Was)[[/note]], several songs which would have been released for the second album ended up with some form the above incarnation of Yes, to form the somewhat awkwardly named "Union" album, all under the Yes banner. It's awkwardly named as the two different lineups didn't really record much together; other than Jon Anderson's lead vocals on every track and Chris Squire's backing vocals (but not bass playing) on some of the ABWH tracks, it's pretty much two different bands on the same album.

* [[Music/JayZ Jay-Z's]] song "Renegade" with {{Eminem}} off the ''The Blueprint'' was originally written and produced by Eminem as a song for Royce da 5'9". The part during one of Eminem's verses containing what sounds like vocalized record scratches was actually dubbing over a reference to Royce in the lyrics.

* ''[[ComicBook/TheDefenders Fearless Defenders]]'' was originally not going to be called that, as it was a spin-off of the ''Fearless'' mini-series from ''Comicbook/FearItself''. WordOfGod states that Marvel slapped ''Defenders'' onto the title in order to boost sales, even though the new team had ''nothing'' to do with any of the prior incarnations of the group.
* Writer Creator/MarkMillar has been accused of doing this with ComicBook/CivilWar given the AlternateCharacterInterpretation of several of the characters involved (ComicBook/IronMan as fascistic, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica as being morally wrong, etc).

** Marvel sometimes did this with reprints of old comics from the 1950's. For instance, one sci-fi/horror story had an unnamed scientist character changed to a young [[Comicbook/AntMan Hank Pym]] when reprinted, while an issue of ''Menace'' had a nondescript foreign spy changed to an agent of HYDRA.

One ''Strange Tales'' story about astronauts from the U.S. and U.S.S.R. who mistake each other for aliens was altered to instead have the characters be from {{SHIELD}} and Comicbook/{{HYDRA}}.

** The Robotech movie also added scenes from ''Anime/MegaZone23'', tacked onto footage from Southern Cross (even 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).

Added DiffLines:

* The origins of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'' began as an unfinished episode of ''SwatKats'', oddly enough (though this might explain a few things- the DarkerAndEdgier tone, the cat-themed villains, etc.) As a side note, parts of the ''SK'' script were ''also'' recycled for an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealAdventuresOfJonnyQuest''.

* ''Sidewinder II'' was originally an independently-developed UsefulNotes/AtariST game titled ''Blast''. Virgin Mastertronic gave it wider distribution after rebranding it as a sequel to the Arcadia game ''Sidewinder''.
