* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4: VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS, in relation to the versions released on XBox360, PC, and PS3. The game features similar missions, but featuring characters from other teams operating either in parallel or in support of the teams from the main release. Every "main" release in the series has since been followed by a handheld, mobile, and/or, in one case, [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 last-gen version]] that acts as a side-story to the main game; the aforementioned last-gen version, for ''World at War'', is notable in that it and the DS version both included a British campaign like every other UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-based game in the series had, whereas the 360, [=PS3=], and PC version had its British campaign and associated assets cut.

* ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheForgottenSands'' is is the fourth installment in the Sands Of Times series and an interquel between the first and the second but it's actually a stand-alone story. The events of the first game are mentionned once or twice and the forgotten sands are unrelated to the sands of times.

** The light gun {{Spin Off}}s could also count, though they have slightly more credible ties to the Canon. Some even seem to be retcon vehicles.
** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis'' may be considered a gaiden to the second game.

* The ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' anime franchise has quite a few Gaiden Games, most of which are spinoffs of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam the original series]] and depict events that take place at the same time as White Base's adventures but in different parts of the world. The best-known of these include ''Rise from the Ashes'' (set in Australia), ''Blue Destiny'' (set in North America), and more recently ''Gundam 0081'' (which takes place between the original series and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Gundam 0083]]''). Some other games shift between this and a full-on LicensedGame - ''Zeonic Front'' and ''[[VideoGame/GundamVsSeries Federation vs. Zeon]]'' on PlayStation2 alternate between missions totally separated from the events of the anime and missions that put you right in the middle of major battles from the anime.

** Played straight with ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsCoded'' however. The main purpose of the game is to reveal the content of [[SequelHookthe letter written by Mickey to Sora]] at the end of ''Kingdom Hearts II'' and how Mickey found out about the fate of Aqua, Terra and Ventus, [[InternalReveal something the player already knows]] if he played to ''Birth By Sleep'' previously. The actual plot (Mickey creating a data Sora to restore Jimminy's journal and Maleficient trying to stop him) has little bearing on the MythArc and is never alluded in the next game ''Dream Drop Distance''.
