** Back in 2007, a little title called ''HotelDusk'' was released to positive reviews and fairly good sales worldwide. Flash forward to 2010, and its sequel ''VideoGame/LastWindow'' sees release in Japan... only to flop and for its developer Cing to go bankrupt soon after. Despite this, Nintendo of Europe still translated ''Last Window'' for its markets, despite ''Hotel Dusk'' not selling as well there. [[NoExportForYou Nintendo of America, on the other hand...]]

** When ''Anime/DragonBallZKai'' was licensed by Funimation fans had hoped that CartoonNetwork would air the show and were quite shocked when they decided to pass on it. Then Nicktoons announced that they would air it. It not only proved to be a HUGE success for them, it also made Viacom consider airing anime on their channels. Then when the Buu Saga came around Nicktoons passed... and it got saved by Toonami on AdultSwim, where it airs with no censorship.

* Atari rescued ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame'' after {{Activision}} decided not to publish it. * ''[[BrutalLegend Brütal Legend]]'' was first to be published by Vivendi, but then they merged with Sierra, so Double Fine went to {{Activision}}, who dropped it too, so then it was picked up by ElectronicArts. Disappointed by the game's sales, EA [[ScrewedByTheNetwork killed the sequel]], which nearly drove Double Fine to bankruptcy.

* ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAndCousins'' is essentially this trope after ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot'' was royally screwed up by Hasbro and The Hub (took them three years to produce a show and four years to produce a toy, and then not produce a second season after). Creator/{{Netflix}} came to the show's rescue, while Just Play Toys came to the toys'.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Alan Ladd's faith that saw ''Star Wars'' even make it to film. Had Fox dumped the film, it is doubtful they would have ever recovered from the abysmal era the studio had entered thanks to bombs like ''Film/{{Cleopatra}}'' and ''Film/MyraBrickinridge''.

* Though its quality is disputable, Creator/AdultSwim at one point started airing a promo in which they say ''WesternAnimation/{{Squidbillies}}'' has been getting low ratings... and how clearly the reason was that the [[ViewersAreMorons viewers were morons]] and hadn't yet given this wonderful show a chance. That's why now they're airing it every single night instead of once a week, [[AdoredByTheNetwork to get us to watch it and see how great it is.]]

** Most visible with the ''DragonQuest'' series. They localized ''VideoGame/DragonQuestI'' in North America and used their magazine ''Nintendo Power'' to market the heck out of it. The results were apparently good enough to convince {{Enix}} to translate and publish the next three games themselves there. About two decades later, after Creator/SquareEnix failed to generate strong sales for the previous two DS games, Creator/{{Nintendo}} published and marketed ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'' around the West to great success. They then published ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' a year later.

** Nintendo has also stated that they want to do this with several Japanese games that their original publishers have no intention of releasing worldwide. The first of these is ''VideoGame/BravelyDefault'', a SquareEnix RPG.
