* ''Franchise/{{Dragonball}}'' has several near misses where this trope ''almost'' happened, but was barely missed because of the obscure Nippon Golden Network television channel. Unless you had seen episodes of Dragonball from this obscure channel, every one of Goku's fellow Z-Warriors (with the exception of Yamcha, who appeared in the aborted syndication of the first 13 episodes) would have been introduced when ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' debuted, not with their original Dragonball appearances.
** Likewise, NGN also showed ''Manga/DoctorSlump''. If you missed it, your first introduction to Dr. Slump would have been when Goku and General Blue visited Penguin Village.
*** An interesting case happened in Malaysia. The Penguin Village episode aired in Malaysia around 1997-1998, Dr Slump later aired 4-5 years after the episode aired.
** ''Fusion Reborn'' was released in North America in March 2006. Before that, the video game ''Budokai 3'' had Gogeta as a playable character in 2004, and 2005's ''Budokai Tenkaichi'' had Gogeta and the movie's antagonist, Janemba. Gogeta was also in the game ''Ultimate Battle 22'', but they tried to cover it up by calling him Vegito (another fusion). ''Budokai 3'' also came out a few months before ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' ended, so it additionally spoiled Omega Shenron and Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta. The aforementioned Gogeta is also playable in his Super Saiyan 4 state from the end of GT, making him a double spoiler.
*** Oddly enough, the events of ''Fusion Reborn'' were also covered by the GameBoyAdvance game ''Buu's Fury'' before it was released in English, despite the game being developed in the US.

* The entire cast of ''VideoGame/WanganMidnight Maximum Tune'', an arcade game released worldwide, comes from the manga and anime series ''Wangan Midnight''. Despite the former first being serialized in 1992, [[NoExportForYou neither the manga nor the anime have seen an official release outside of Japan]].
** Averted in Taiwan, where official Chinese translations of the manga were released before the games.

* ''Super Smash Bros. for 3DS'' has an assist trophy of the Prince of the Sablé Kingdom from ''VideoGame/KaeruNoTameNiKaneWaNaru''. As you might tell from the title, it was not released outside of Japan. His fellow prince, Richard, was more fortunate, as he received a cameo in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening''.

* The motive for Chapter 2 of ''VideoGame/SuperDanganRonpa2'' is the "Twilight Syndrome Murder Case" arcade game, which is a {{homage}} to the ''Twilight Syndrome'' mystery/horror series, none of which have been released outside of Japan (there aren't even any {{Fan Translation}}s).

In cases where Marth ''does'' debut in Smash Bros (which actually was the case for fellow ''Fire Emblem'' character, Roy) see EarlyBirdCameo.
