* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManAndHisAmazingFriends'', from a solo ''Spider-Man'' cartoon made specifically to get the attention of the major networks. That show has since faded into obscurity, despite actually being a strong show in its own right. (Try putting "1981 Spider-Man" through Google.)

* When Starbucks introduced the "Caramel Macchiato" in the 2000s, it ended up becoming one of their most popular drinks, partly because its distinctive lattice pattern of caramel syrup helped it stand out. Many casual espresso drinkers didn't realize that the drink was a flavored variant of a much older drink called a "Latte Macchiato", which had been served at most coffeehouses--including Starbucks--for decades before the Caramel Macchiato became popular. [[note]] A latte macchiato is a simple upside-down variant of the standard latte, in which espresso is poured over steamed milk instead of steamed milk being poured over espresso. It's not to be confused with the similar "Espresso Macchiato", which is simply espresso topped with a dollop of milk foam. Depending on the context, the Italian word ''"macchiato"'' can mean either "marked" or "stained"; a latte macchiato is "stained" brown by the addition of espresso, while an espresso macchiato is "marked" with a serving of white foam.[[/note]] This ended up drawing the ire of quite a few baristas at other coffeehouses, who would sometimes encounter customers asking for a "macchiato", expecting it to be a flavored drink with a lattice of caramel syrup on top.

Starbucks itself is the more popular spinoff of Peet's Coffee. Alfred Peet taught Starbucks' founders about roasting coffee, and they decided to try their hand at it up in Seattle.

Not only that, but [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Persona 4 didn't even have Shin Megami Tensei on the title]].
** Personas 3 and 4 in general, to the point where Atlus ''themselves'' seems to treat the first two as if there was some kind of an OldShame.

* ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'' is the main compartment and spinoff of ''Ensemble Girls'' and shares some connections to it through Leo and Anzu [[spoiler:'s backstory,]] but besides that many fans of Stars! can go their entire playthroughs without ever hearing of ''Girls!''. To the point that some players accused Mai, a character from ''Girls!'',
to be a copycat of Mao even though ''Girls!'' came out first.
