* The ''OgreBattle'' series has two. ''Ogre Battle: Legend Of The Zenobia Prince'', a [[NoExportForYou Japanese-only]] game for the NeoGeoPocket and ''TacticsOgreTheKnightOfLodis'', both of which tell the backstories of characters from ''OgreBattle'' and ''TacticsOgre'', respectively.

** 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''.

* ''VideoGame/{{R-Type}} Leo'' has gameplay significant from a "real" ''R-Type'' game. Instead of a Force Pod, you had two smaller pods that provided additional firepower and had a homing charge attack, and the plot takes place before any other games in the series. The obscure ''Armed Police Unit Gallop'' is also a Gaiden Game.

* In the ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series, most major installments involve a new protagonist but there will often be a Gaiden Game to continue that one's story, usually without any appearances by Zelda, Ganon, or the Kingdom Of Hyrule: ** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'' involves the Link from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' on waking up on a mysterious Island. Later, a Creator/{{Capcom}}[=/=]Creator/{{Nintendo}} colab brought us the Oracle series as a midquel to the two.

** A good example for [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]] is Link's Crossbow Training for the Wii. ** ''VideoGame/FreshlyPickedTinglesRosyRupeeland'' is either this or a spinoff.

The game is rather DenserAndWackier than most ''Zelda'' titles.

A game which takes place in or refers to another video game, but isn't really a sequel. It can be a simple side story, a PerspectiveFlip, or a chance to [[ADayInTheLimelight give a popular character background they didn't get in the original game]]. The major stipulation is it is not usually ''required'' to canonically fit into the main game or require having played it to enjoy. It also frequently, but not necessary dips into GenreShift by changing to another type of core-gameplay.

** Blue Shift, Opposing Force and Decay could probably also be considered Gaiden Games. Especially Opposing Force, which while set in the same time-frame as the original, introduced new aliens (Race X) and characters (Cpl. Adrian Shepard, Security guard Otis Laurey) that have not been considered "canonical" by Valve.
