*** Lane Toran (then known and credited as Toran Caudell) was the first Arnold on the show proper[[note]]J.D. Daniels voiced him in the pilot, which was only shown in theaters[[/note]] and only lasted one season in the part (though he subbed in for Phillip Van Dyke in the season 2 MusicalEpisode "What's Opera, Arnold?" because Van Dyke wasn't a confident singer). Even after his voice broke, he remained with the show for its entirety as the bully Wolfgang, a role created specifically for him. Due to FirstInstallmentWins, he's often remembered as "the" Arnold by the media - in 2015, a widely-reported story (with pictures!) noted how "the voice of Arnold" was all grown up. Toran is also frequently invited to fan conventions and panels reminiscing about his time on the show, alongside Francesca Marie Smith; he even appeared on the official ''Hey Arnold!'' panel at the 2017 SDCC alongside the current Arnold (Mason Vale Cotton), the only past Arnold to do so. He is also returning to provide voice work for ''The Jungle Movie''[[note]]as Che, a tour guide on the trip to San Lorenzo[[/note]] and is, once again, the ''only'' past Arnold who made an appearance even though both Phillip Van Dyke and Spencer Klein played the role for longer.

* Similar to the adopted-daddy version for ''Franchise/MegaMan'' above, Nintendo has become a publisher variant for ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', literally [[SavedFromDevelopmentHell saving]] ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2'' after Sega dropped the title and released the title alongside the first game on the Wii U. Even after the game became a AcclaimedFlop, Bayonetta got into ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' and Nintendo is porting over both the first and second games to the Switch, alongside getting an exclusive release of ''VideoGame/Bayonetta3''. Like with Mega Man, some wonder why Sega even bothers to even keep the IP at this point.

* While Tomoyuki Tanaka is credited as being the creator of ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', it is often director Ishiro Honda who gets the most praise amongst the fandom regarding the film series.
** And also often special effects supervisor Eiji Tsuburaya.
* While Creator/IanFleming created Franchise/JamesBond, his version was far closer to being a VillainProtagonist than even the darkest movie versions. Terence Young was really the creator of the suave Creator/SeanConnery Bond we all love. His instruction to Sean was to imitate him.
** Also the ''James Bond'' Theme. The authorship has been disputed for years with composer John Barry arguing in court Monty Norman's claim of authorship and ultimately losing before he died. Monty Norman definitely did come up with the melody, borrowing it from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6EuzGhIyRQ "Good Sign, Bad Sign"]] a song he wrote for the musical "A House for Mr Biswas" but Barry's orchestration, with its electric guitar intro and big brassy sound, was what made it popular.

* While Tomoyuki Tanaka is credited as being the creator In UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfHollywood, a number of ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', it is iconic screen actors and their personas largely depended on StarMakingRole from particular film-makers:
** Creator/CaryGrant made many films in TheThirties,
often in a variety of roles, such as a cockney con-man in ''Sylvia Scarlett'' by Creator/GeorgeCukor (where he uses his real accent) but film historians note that the iconic image of Grant, as an elegant, classy, charismatic gentleman who can be a comic and dramatic lead, really began with director Ishiro Honda who gets the most praise amongst the fandom regarding the Creator/LeoMcCarey and his film series.
''Film/TheAwfulTruth''. [=McCarey=] who had a startling resemblance to Grant, actually had Grant imitate his fashion and dressing style to better convey his performance which at the time was PlayingAgainstType but in time became TypeCasting.
** And The actor Marion Morrison was renamed Creator/JohnWayne by Creator/RaoulWalsh whose film ''Film/TheBigTrail'' was intended to launch him but failed instead. Wayne then spent the rest of TheThirties in minor parts before Creator/JohnFord gave him his break in ''Film/{{Stagecoach}}''. But film historians largely credit Creator/HowardHawks and his film ''Film/RedRiver'' for [[TropeCodifier codifying]] Wayne's familiar screen image as a RatedMForManly DeadpanSnarker action hero who was also often special effects supervisor Eiji Tsuburaya.

a BruiserWithASoftCenter. Indeed Creator/JohnFord was famously noted to have remarked after seeing ''Red River'', "I didn't know that son of a bitch can act", and Ford after that indeed cast Wayne in a more nuanced and mythical manner in films like ''Film/TheSearchers'' and ''Film/TheManWhoShotLibertyValance''.

** Arnold himself is a bit unclear. There have been a total of ''seven'' Arnolds (counting the pilot, the upcoming ''Jungle Movie'' and his TimeShiftedActor in flashbacks)[[note]]J.D. Daniels in the pilot, Lane Toran Caudell in season 1, Philip Van Dyke in seasons 2 and 3, Spencer Klein in seasons 4 and 5 up to ''Hey Arnold! The Movie'', Alex D. Linz in the post-movie episodes of season 5, Mason Vale Cotton in ''Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie'' and Rusty Flood during flashbacks in "Parents Day" and "Helga on the Couch"[[/note]] but two of them have a pretty good claim to being ''the'' Arnold.

** The United States Air Force effectively does the opposite, placing its birth on September 18, 1947, when the Air Force was formally seperated from the US Army, while also laying claim to the accomplishments made by its various predecessor services, including the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII US Army Air Forces]], and ranging all the way back to the Aeronautical Division, US Army Signal Corps, on August 1, 1907.

* In ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', Tweety was created by Creator/BobClampett. During his first few cartoons, he was pink (presumably featherless), a bit homely looking, and had a bit of a mean-streak about him. He quickly became a hit, but them Clampett left Warner Bros., and Creator/FrizFreleng had his go with the character in the 1947 cartoon, "Tweety Pie", giving him a bright, yellow coat of feathers at the request of the Hayes Office, made him cuter, a little more innocent, as well as pairing with Sylvester the Cat (named Thomas in this cartoon), who would quickly become his arch nemesis. The end result was another character added to Freleng's roster, as well as the first Oscar win for the Warner Bros. animation studio.

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' was created by Hironobu Sakaguchi, but Yoshinori Kitase was more influential in creating the sort of games people think of as being ''Final Fantasy''. He started as the writer of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' (which got rid of many of the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' elements and introduced a new form of plot structure that is associated with the series), went on to help write fan-favourites ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', was the person who decided on the 'cinematic' aesthetic that went on to define the PS1 ''FF'' entries and [[FranchiseOriginalSin the direction of the entire medium of AAA games]], and then oversaw the next several games as a director while allowing his former cowriter Kazushige Nojima to handle the writing, before getting KickedUpstairs to producer around the time of Sakaguchi's [[CreatorKiller fall from grace]], heralding something of a DorkAge. Even within ''VII'' alone, the ''Compilation'' entry considered by far the best (''VideoGame/CrisisCore'') was the one he was directly involved with writing, and this was something he'd done even though it was unusual for him to be writing at all at that point in his career.
* While the creator of the ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' series is Creator/HidekiKamiya, he only really had full involvment with the very first game in the series. From the third game onwards, the series has been headed by Hideaki Itsuno, which is around the time the series and its protagonist truly hit their stride.
