* Most of the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' series have had novel adaptations, sometime resolving very different from the anime. And there are also side stories and sequels that originate as novels. Notable is ''Beltochika's Children''; it was originally YoshiyukiTomino's rejected plot for ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]]'', which, in turn, is an adaption of Tomino's novel ''Hi-Streamer''. In other words, it's a novelization of TheFilmOfTheBook (by the same author).

* The ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series has tie-in [[Manga/KingdomHearts manga]] for each game.
** They also have [[Literature/KingdomHearts novelizations]], with many characters made [[AdaptationalAngstUpgrade angstier]] and made-up scenes that wind up contradicting game canon as the series progresses. Game director Tetsuya Nomura noted this in one interview, and it was probably a reason why he brought the novels' writer, Tomoco Kanemaki, on to actually help write the scenario for one of the actual video games, ''358/2 Days'', ''before'' writing the novel version (and even then, Nomura rewrote the script once she was done with it).

* ''Film/{{Dragonheart}}'' has both a regular novelization and a junior one. The novelization, written by the film's screenwriter Charles Edward Pogue, is based on his early screenplay before it was changed by {{creative differences}} with director Rob Cohen and {{executive meddling}} from {{Universal}}. Compared to the family-friendly nature of the film, the novelization has the {{darker and edgier}} feel the film was meant to have. It also expands on the world, details the characters and their relationships, gives previously minor or unnamed supporting characters larger roles such as the dragonslayers introduced near the end, includes vital scenes and moments of character development deleted from the film, rearranges some scenes and lines of dialogue to help the story make more sense, and removes elements added to the film that Pogue disapproved of like the pigs in the swamp village. While the film received a mixed reception, the novelization is praised by readers and fans, deeming it superior to the film and lamenting {{What Could Have Been}}. The book notably features more direct interaction between Draco and the other characters than shown in the film that was limited due to the CGI technology at the time.

* For the ''Franchise/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'', there are novelizations of the first two films. ''Film/PitchBlack'', by Frank Lauria, is mostly a cut-and-paste from an early draft of the script (so that one important twist from the movie doesn't appear), but it does add some backstory on how Riddick was captured and why he went to prison in the first place. The one for ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'' by AlanDeanFoster added in tons of details, several extra scenes, and detailed backstory, including an appendix with more details on the Necromonger religion.

* The novel to ''Film/BatmanForever'', by Creator/PeterDavid throws in some deleted scenes from the film, rearranges the order of some scenes to make more sense, and is generally thought quite good. Bizarrely, the Riddler briefly wears a robotic muscle suit for a few pages, like in the licensed game version.
