* One StoryArc in ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' is a PoorlyDisguisedPilot for "Excelsior", a support group for former teen heroes that ended up getting sent to chase the main characters. It was eventually launched as ''ComicBook/TheLoners'', after it turned out that the trademark on "Excelsior" belonged to Creator/StanLee, who had put out a book about his experiences in comics by that title.

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII: The Frozen Throne's'' bonus campaign "The Founding of Durotar", with its shift from RTS to RPG gameplay, is a PoorlyDisguisedPilot for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. The quest-driven nature was rare for {{MMORPG}}s at the time, but was planned as a major feature of ''World of Warcraft'', and the campaign even features the Resurrection Stones that were originally going to be in ''World of Warcraft'' before the death system was revamped (the stones would ultimately become Meeting Stones).
