I'd argue that whether something is a prequel being ambiguous is worth mentioning, and certainly if one says 'the two other' the first must be mentioned.
* Creator/IsaacAsimov wrote the ''Galactic Empire'' novels, one of which was set within the First Galactic Empire prior to the collapse depicted in the {{Foundation}} trilogy, as a bridge between his ''Robot'' series and that trilogy. The two other ''Empire'' novels were set further back, with one taking place during the rise of the empire that will ''become'' the First Galactic Empire, and the other being set before Trantor became a galaxy-wide concern.

The first one, ''Pebble in the Sky'', takes place at the height of the Galactic Empire and is in a bit of an odd situation when it comes to which is a prequel and which is a sequel (it was actually Asimov's ''first'' novel, but large parts of ''Foundation'' had already been serialized). The two other ''Empire'' novels were set further back, with one taking place during the rise of the empire that will ''become'' the First Galactic Empire, and the other being set before Trantor became a galaxy-wide concern.

* The ''Franchise/{{Bioshock}}'' novel ''Rapture'' mixes this with a slide into JustBeforeTheEnd. It basically links all the backstory we know about the first two games together into a single novel.

Added DiffLines:
* ''VideoGame/FallFromHeavenAgeOfIce'' is a DarkFantasy scenario for ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}} IV'' (included in the ''Beyond the Sword'' ExpansionPack). It's a prequel to the popular ''VideoGame/FallFromHeaven'' mod that takes place near the end of the previous age. Specifically, the main mod takes place in the Age of Rebirth, while the scenario, as [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin indicated in the name]], takes place during the preceding Age of Ice. No scenario/mod exists for the even earlier Age of Magic, although it probably wouldn't be ''too'' different from the one set in the Age of Rebirth, with factions being the main difference (e.g. the [[TheMagocracy Amurites]] did not exist during the Age of Magic but play a key role in ending the Age of Ice).

* The ''Literature/RevelationSpaceSeries'' largely takes place after the Melding Plague - an unknown alien technology that corrupts human nanotechnology - wrecked human civilization, decimating the technological base that made the Bella Epoque golden age possible in the Yellowstone System. ''Chasm City'', the prequel to the [[Literature/RevelationSpace first novel]], takes place only a few years after the Melding Plague hit the eponymous city, and shows the nightmarish environment where the [[CrystalSpiresAndTogas self-evolving skyscrapers]] became corrupt, growing and consuming anything in their path. ''Literature/ThePrefect'' takes place a few decades before the Melding Plague, showing the nigh-utopian pre-Plague Chasm City, and shows the vast 'Glitter Belt' of multi-cultural orbital habitats before they were reduced to the 'Rust Belt' after the Plague.

* Each and every one of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games take place in their own distinct era of Hyrule's history, but ''TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' is notable for being the earliest game in the timeline, before the founding of Hyrule itself, and when the Demon King Demise threatened to wipe out all life for the Demon tribe. [[spoiler:It also shows us the creation of the Master Sword and Demise's curse on Link and Zelda.]]

** And all of them take place before the first ''FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance''. The setting's "Real World" is actually Ivalice thousands of years in the other games' future after all the world's magic energy is used up and people have developed technology analogous to RealLife. The in-universe ''Final Fantasy'' games the children play and on which [[spoiler:Marche's fantasy world is based]] are works of historical fiction, like the ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' games are to us.
