* The popularity of ''Manga/BlackButler'' caused it to be adapted way too soon and the anime wound up going in a totally different direction than the manga. Only 9 of the 24 episodes from the first two seasons were adapted directly from the manga; however, a new season in 2014 was based on the manga once again.

* The [[Anime/FullMetalAlchemist 2003 anime adaptation]] of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' went into an AlternateContinuity from its very early episodes, although the changes were fairly subtle in the beginning. This is because the creators [[PragmaticAdaptation knew in advance that it would overtake the manga]], as did the manga's creator, who explicitly asked them to take this route. Averted with the second series, ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'', which revealed it was sticking with the manga ending the final episode was aired about two weeks after the final manga chapter was released.

* When ''ComicBook/TheMaxx'' was adapted by MTV, they did a very faithful job, despite having to replace some of the [[ComicBook/SavageDragon character cameos]]. However, given the book's typical ImageComics production schedule, the cartoon had to invent its own ending, '''well''' before the comic got there.

* Creator/MichaelCrichton followed ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' with ''Literature/TheLostWorld1995'', but the lack of a third book led ''Film/JurassicParkIII'' to be created from whole cloth. Ditto ''Film/JurassicWorld'' - though impressively both had [[RetrofittedForSequel unused content from the first book]].
* [[Film/KickAss The film]] and [[ComicBook/KickAss comic book]] versions of ''Kick-Ass'' were written at the same time, with both influencing the other and things being changed to keep them consistent.

* When Konami wanted to make a sequel to ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' following the success of the NES port in North America, they commissioned one of their teams to make a sequel specifically for the American market, resulting in the creation of ''[[VideoGame/SnakesRevenge Snake's Revenge]]''. This inspired Hideo Kojima to make his own sequel for the [=MSX2=], ''[[VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake]]''. ''Snake's Revenge'' is not considered part of the official ''Franchise/MetalGear'' continuity, as the events of the game are incompatible with what occurs in the official sequel.

* The anime for ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' only had 25 episodes, because the manga wasn't finished yet. It also caught way too fast with the source material, leaving out less than 15 chapters of content. Because of this, there is a long delay in the production of the 2nd anime to allow for story developments to catch up and to avoid this happening to such an extent.

* The ''Franchise/StarTrek'' comic books often suffered from overtaking the movies. For example, in the movies, ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' follows immediately after ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock'', with a gap of only 2 months in-between. In the comics, they adapted ''Search,'' then had Spock make a full recovery, Kirk and crew take command of the ''Excelsior,'' and Starfleet send them all on a bunch of far-away missions while they decided what to do with the captain who stole the ''Enterprise'' and got it blown up. When it came time to adapt ''Voyage,'' Spock started having a mental breakdown, so Kirk swapped the ''Excelsior'' for the Klingon ship they'd apparently kept in a parking orbit somewhere for all those months, took him back to Vulcan for treatment, and managed to set things up exactly the way they had been at the end of ''Search,'' just in time for a huge cylinder to start asking Earth about whales.

** And then, after some further adventures on the ''Enterprise''-A, DC cancelled the series while Paramount reworked the licensing deal, essentially [[CanonDiscontinuity throwing out the continuity of the entire first series]] when the second series launched after ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier''. Since it was uncertain for months if there would even be a sixth movie, and once ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' was greenlighted it was decided to set it several years after ''Frontier'', the second series managed to avoid the trope altogether. (It also helped that they periodically revisited the period of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the Original Series]].)

* Because the anime version of ''[[Manga/KeroroGunsou Sgt. Frog]]'' frequently ran ahead of the manga (particularly in more recent years) a number of episodes and plots are present in the former that are not in the latter, such Karara's repeated appearances to marry one of the members of the platoon and the timer counting down to the invasion in season 3.

* Some of the early Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse material that was published between the movies of the original trilogy, like ''Literature/SplinterOfTheMindsEye''. It was written as a sequel to the first movie, but published when it was unknown if ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' was ever going to be made. The ComicBook/MarvelStarWars comic book series fits this trope despite ironically being a comic book adaptation of a screen franchise. First it adapts the first movie, then it has a bunch of original stories, then it adapts the second movie, followed by more original stories, then the third movie, and then it OvertookTheSeries.
