** Played straight with ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsCoded'' however. The main purpose of the game is to reveal the content of [[SequelHook the 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''.

It does contain a few relevant points that are obviously setting up for future games though, including the first mention of the Book of Prophecy; Maleficent and Pete gaining knowledge of such a thing; and Mickey seeing all the people Sora has to help which includes Xion, a character he previously would have had no reason to be aware of at all, and that fans may have expected not to see again.

* Each ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' game had a Game Boy follow-up in the "Donkey Kong Land" series. The first was a completely separate adventure, the second was basically a port of Donkey Kong Country 2 and the third was a basic collection of very generic levels in the style of Donkey Kong Country 3.

* The ''VideoGame/WorldOfMana'' series has a number of titles not in the main series -- ''VideoGame/LegendOfMana'', ''VideoGame/ChildrenOfMana'', and ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMana''. But what's more interesting is that the original game, released as ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyAdventure'' in the US....was actually called ''Seiken Desnsetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden'' (and was in fact the first game in the US to have a Chocobo in it!).

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam'', as a {{crossover}} with ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', is one to both series simultaneously, but moreso the former. As confirmed by WordOfGod, to keep the budget down, several musical themes are reused from earlier games and the settings and characters draw more from the main platformer games than other installments before. Adding to this, it's the only ''Mario & Luigi'' game to eschew NumberedSequels in its Japanese release.

** The spinoff games to the ''VII'' universe could be considered Gaiden Games, including the PS2 sequel ''VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus'', and two prequels, ''VideoGame/BeforeCrisis'' for mobile phones and ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' on the PSP. Fans are divided how much material has been stapled on as a cash grab and how much was simply cut for time.

* The ''VirtuaFighter'' series has ''Virtua Quest'' (released in Japan as ''Virtua Fighter: Cyber Generation''), a beat-em-up set in the {{Cyberspace}}. The original ''Virtua Fighter'' roster appears as ghost data that bestow their fighting techniques upon the player.

* ''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.
