* The reissue of Music/PearlJam's ''Ten'' came in a bunch of versions. A two-CD "Legacy Edition" which came with a remastered version of the original album, a new remixed version of the album and half a dozen bonus tracks. The "Deluxe Edition" added in a DVD of their MTV Unplugged show, and a final "Super Deluxe Edition" had all the other stuff, a vinyl LP copy of the album and remixes, also sold on its own, a recording of a live show on vinyl, a replica of the early PJ demo cassettes, and a replica of Eddie Vedder's lyrics notebook. Admittedly, there were a lot of complaints about the mixing/production of the original album, but ''still''. Keep in mind that they're planning to do something similar for all of their albums, leading up to their 20th anniversary as a band. Follow-ups ''Vs.'' and ''Vitalogy'' were packaged together, in [[http://pearljam.com/music/albums/997/studio/18656/vs_and_vitalogy_-_20th_anniversary_editions either]] a regular version with both albums and bonus tracks, an expanded one adding a live album, and "Limited Edition Collector's Boxed Set (5 [=LPs=], 3 [=CDs=], 1 Cassette, Digital Download, Composition Notebook, Memorabilia-filled Envelope)".

* On September 9, 2009, EMI re-issued every album by Music/TheBeatles; the stereo mixes being released standalone and as a box set. A monoaural set (the mono mixes preferred by the band and producer, plus mono mixes of the albums which were originally in stereo... with the albums being "[[http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51wU1%2BXEVjL.jpg mini-LPs]]") was planned as a very limited edition with only 10,000 copies planned for release. Massive pre-orders forced EMI to reconsider. When it finally came out, it had sold 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week. In Japan, it sold 20,000. New copies can still be found at online retailers such as Amazon.
* The re-release of Music/TheRollingStones ''Music/ExileOnMainSt.'' got put out in ''four'' different formats. The regular Single-CD version, a Double-Vinyl edition, A Double-CD version featuring 10 bonus tracks to go along with the regular album, or, if you [[CrackIsCheaper really wanted to splurge it]], an Limited-Edition Autographed Version of the album signed by all the band members, which would have set you back around $2000 had you got it when that version was available. A fifth version called ''"Exile On Main St. Rarities Edition"'' which contained just the 10 bonus tracks, is also available at Target.

* ''{{Hellsing}} Ultimate'' does this with multiple releases, there's the single disc version, with just the OVA, there's the Two-Disc Version with commentary and a special features disc, there's also the Two-Disc Steelbox which comes has the two discs in a nice steelbox case, and sometimes comes with an artbook. You can still find the Steelboxes for a decent price brand new, but all the other editions are just as expensive.

** This was also done with the US release of ''LuckyStar'' (except for the last volume). Turned out it was almost a money black hole for the producer.

* When ''GingaNagareboshiGin'' was released in certain European countries in the 80's, it went through several cuts due to censorship and attempts to fit the series on four VHS tapes. Eventually over 100 minutes of the original material was left out from this release, causing the dubbing to be least of the worries. Later, when Finland and Sweden received uncut DVD releases with original soundtrack and voice acting intact, it was marketed as Special Edition of the series.

* Creator/MangaEntertainment have done this with some of their more popular titles, such as Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods and Manga/AttackOnTitan. This move was actually criticized by some fans and reviewers because it involved taking extras off of the existing US versions (from which the UK releases were based), and in the case of blu-rays downgrading the extras to [=DVDs=] to boot.

* Dark Horse Comics released ''SinCity'' in an "Archival Edition", putting all the various series in their own hardcover book (plus a special making-of book), and subsequently housing them in two dustproof hardcover cases. Ponying up the money for the two "Archival" releases will set you back to the tune of $400.

** 2011: ''Achtung Baby'', widely considered to be U2's best album, is rereleased as a 20th anniversary edition (with "slightly cleaned up" audio as opposed to a full remastering, which the band thought unnecessary). This set the bar higher than any album before it, with five physical formats, including a single-CD edition; a Deluxe Edition with a second CD of B-sides, rarities, and remixes; a quadruple-vinyl edition with the same track listing as the CD Deluxe Edition. The last two examples embody this trope to a T. The Super Deluxe Edition includes ''six'' [=CDs=] (''Achtung Baby'', the follow-up album ''Zooropa'', a CD of just B-sides and rarities, ''two'' [=CDs=] of remixes, and a "Kindergarten" version of the album featuring demo versions of each song in order) and ''four'' [=DVDs=] (the related feature documentary film ''From the Sky Down'', the concert film ''Zoo TV: Live from Sydney'', and two [=DVDs=] of music videos and other documentaries), all packaged in a very large hardcover book with ''16'' equally large prints (each one being one "panel" of the album art). The Über Deluxe Edition then outdid even ''that'', with all the content of the Super Deluxe Edition, plus the vinyl edition of the album, five vinyl singles corresponding with the singles from the album, a series of badges, a special edition of "Propaganda" magazine (modelled on U2's old fan magazine), and a ''replica of Bono's "Fly" sunglasses'', all packaged in a magnetic puzzle tile box.
* Music/DanielAmos. When their out-of-print early albums get reissued on CD, it's almost always as a two-disc deluxe edition, with demos and outtakes and the works. And in these cases, there is no vanilla edition. But for Terry Scott Taylor's 2010 solo album ''Swine Before Pearl'', you could buy the vanilla edition, or you could pay an extra $30 to also get a personalized greeting from Dr Edward Daniel Taylor (Terry's crazy radio preacher alter ego). Or you could pay an extra $100 on top of that, to ''also'' get a personalized original song.
