* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'''s Expanded Universe consists of multiple novels, comics, guidebooks, online exclusives, commercials, live-action features and films, and [[AlternateRealityGame Alternate Reality Games]], along with an [[Anime/HaloLegends anime series]]. All of it, whether created directly by staff from Bungie or 343i (the studios behind the games), or by third parties working under their direct control, is not only completely canonical, but is closely integrated with the games. For example, much of ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' will only be understood by people who read the books; this disclaimer even applies to its ''official website''.

* ''{{Daria}}'' has one, including the show, its two [[AllThereInTheManual published manuals]], its parent show ''BeavisAndButthead'' and any of its spin-offs. However, the ''term'' "Expanded Universe" usually refers to a group of interconnected {{Fan Verse}}s that most serious fans know, with its own set of {{Original Character}}s who appear in multiple creators' fanworks.

Even if it isn't {{canon}}, the Expanded Universe often serves as a place to apply ScotchTape to the {{canon}} through {{Retcon}}s; this may verge on professional-grade FanWank.

* Most of Creator/AndreFranquin's works are presumably set in the same universe. The Franchise/{{Marsupilami}} debuted in a ''ComicBook/SpirouAndFantasio'' comic (''Spirou et les héritiers'') and followed the heroes in some other adventures, eventually getting his owns series (actually following the adventures of another Marsupilami, brother of the first one). ''ComicBook/GastonLagaffe'' could [[LooseCanon arguably]] fits in that universe because of the presence of Fantasio in the first volumes, though they work for the ''Spirou Magazine'', the magazine in which Franquin's works are first published. ''ComicBook/LePetitSpirou'' could also arguably be considered a {{prequel}} to ''Spirou'' - some gags acknowledging his heroic destiny - but except for that there are no references nor even cameos between the two comics.
