* The 2006 installment of Midway's ''SpyHunter'' series was actually based on the movie that was based on the game series. Except the ''Spy Hunter'' movie upon which the game was based ''never ended up being released''. Apparently they got tired of waiting, and decided to just release the game with no context.

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'' started out as [[VideoGame/MetalGear1 a PC]] [[VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake game]] for the {{MSX}}2 computers, and it has some sequels made for the video game consoles after the demise of MSX, and some of them have even ported back to [=PCs=] running UsefulNotes/MicrosoftWindows. Considering Windows a SpiritualSuccessor to MSX, it could helped playing this example even straighter. [[AdaptationFirst Unfortunately]], [[NoExportForYou no one knows]].

* ''Conan the Barbarian'', both the [[Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982 1982]] and [[Film/ConanTheBarbarian2011 2011]] versions, received novelizations. (Admittedly, an unusual entry, since the films did not especially specifically adapt the tales from the 1950s reprint volume Conan the Barbarian.) Robert Jordan also wrote a novelization of 'Film/ConanTheDestroyer'', but no anthology or novel had used that title.

* The first ''Film/JurassicPark'' film was based fairly directly on Creator/MichaelCrichton's [[Literature/JurassicPark novel]], though differed in several major respects including just which characters [[SparedByTheAdaptation survive]] or [[DeathByAdaptation not]]. Crichton's subsequent book ''Literature/TheLostWorld1995'' was written more as a sequel to the movie, rather than the novel, given the sudden UnexplainedRecovery experience necessary for one major protagonist to appear after his [[NotQuiteDead apparent]] fate in the original novel. This new book was itself swiftly followed by a movie of (partly) the same name, although adapted more loosely still. A second sequel movie was then produced titled ''Film/JurassicParkIII'', combining some characters from the first book/film with the setting of the second and at least one major inspiration (the pterosaur 'cage') from the original novel. By the time we got to the third movie we're 4 steps away from the original book in general, though.

* Hollywood producers offered Philip K. Dick the chance to write the {{novelization}} of ''Film/BladeRunner'', itself a loose FilmOfTheBook (the screenwriters had not read the original book) of his ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep?'' They would have paid a lot of money to do this, but, feeling insulted he refused. This led to the release of tie-in editions of ''Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?'' re-titled and looking for all the world like ''Film/BladeRunner'' novelizations. Later, when his short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" [[AdaptationDisplacement inspired]] the movie ''Film/TotalRecall1990''. Having gone through DevelopmentHell and many screenwriters, the script was essentially an original script with even less in common with its source material than ''Film/BladeRunner''. By the time of the film's release, Creator/PiersAnthony had written a novelization of ''Total Recall''. The novelization came out in 1989. The movie came out in 1990.

* A strange example in regards to ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': The show got a {{Mockbuster}} entitled ''Miracle Star'' that ripped off scenes from the show wholesale. The show, in turn, then made CaptainErsatz versions of those characters in the episode ''[[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS5E11TheCopycats The Copycats]]''.
