This is effectively a PostscriptSeason for the series, but trying to create new plots from [[AssPull thin air]] can create inconsistencies. If four humans were all it took to defeat the White Witch in Creator/CSLewis's ''[[{{Narnia}} The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe]]'', then how did the neighbouring, human-filled kingdoms of Archenland and Calormen not pose a threat for a hundred years?

* A brief mention is made in ''Discworld/SmallGods'' of a tropical island ravaged by a tsunami and the need for the survivors to have to adapt to new circumstances. This is never explored in the Discworld but it's interesting to note Terry Pratchett later wrote a standalone novel, ''Literature/{{Nation}}'' which explored this very concept at some length.

** The early books carried scraps of information and seemingly throwaway one-line-jokes suggesting there was an Australia-like country on the Discworld but it wasn't all that important for the plot of ''those'' books. Come Book Twenty-Two in the series and what do we get... ''[[Literature/TheLastContinent a Discworld Australia]]''. it has been noted that throughout the series there are lots of similar snippets and one-liners suggesting there is a Discworld "South Africa", which is yet to be properly explored. Alas. AuthorExistenceFailure intervened, but Crerator/TerryPratchett's personal assistant did note that at his death, one unfinished novel outline would have explored the Discworld Africa and its working title was ''The Dark Incontinent''. Snippets of Terry's ideas may have been released in the posthumously produced ''Complete Discworld atlas''.

* The first ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' game made it clear there were only 8 Creators in Craftworld. Not only do [=LittleBigPlanet=] 2, [=LittleBigPlanet=] PSP and [=LittleBigPlanet=] Karting add new areas, but [=LittleBigPlanet=] PS Vita and [=LittleBigPlanet=] 3 add two new planets out of nowhere.

Then [=LittleBigPlanet=] 2, [=LittleBigPlanet=] PSP and [=LittleBigPlanet=] Karting add added a double digits number of new areas, but worlds, followed by [=LittleBigPlanet=] PS Vita and [=LittleBigPlanet=] 3 add adding in two entirely new planets named Carnivalia and Bunkum (respectively) out of nowhere.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has not only the regions listed in the video game entry below, but a few more when the anime [[OvertookTheManga ends up taking more time than the release of a game]] -- most blatant being Orange Islands on Season 2.

** Also, a few regions aren't sure to fit within the country of Gens I-IV - it helps that they're based on [[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Arizona]], [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite New York]], and [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY France]] in contrast to the Japan inspiration of the others.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' has Samus return to Zebes from [[VideoGame/Metroid1 the first game]], and apparently there was a whole underground jungle region of Brinstar lying just to the left of the rocky blue Brinstar she originally explored. Likewise, there's Crateria, the Wrecked Ship and Maridia, all of which had no sign of existing in the original (except maybe the title screen in the former's case). The original game's remake, ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'', curiously added Crateria, but left out the jungle part of Brinstar, Maridia, and the Wrecked Ship (save for a few rooms that slightly resemble it).[[labelnote:*]]While the Space Pirate Mother Ship would seem to be the future Wrecked Ship, WordOfGod is that the two are different.[[/labelnote]] It also added Chozodia, a region Samus apparently never bothered to go to in either ''Super Metroid'' or the original.

** This was done EXTENSIVELY to ''TabletopGame/TheForgottenRealms'' campaign setting, adding entire new continents from out of nowhere. Kara-Tur, anyone?
