* 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.

* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4: VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' for the 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, [[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.

* 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.

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.
