* TabletopGame/{{Scrabble}}: {{Board Game|s}} → [[Series/{{Scrabble}} game show]] → [[HomeGame board game]].
** ''TabletopGame/TrivialPursuit'' followed a similar path.



* We all now how ''TabletopGame/{{Scrabble}}'' was adapted into it's own [[Series/{{Scrabble}} game show]] in the 80s. But in 1987, Selchow and Righter (the people who made the board game at the time) released ''TV Scrabble'', designed to mimic how the game show played. So it's a board game based off a game show based off a board game.

* DC Comics used to have a title called ''HumanTarget'', about MasterOfDisguise Christopher Chance who would disguise himself as people whose lives were in danger in order to draw out their attacker. This recently got an InNameOnly TV adaptation, where Chance isn't a MasterOfDisguise, he's just an undercover bodyguard. DCComics have released a new ''HumanTarget'' comic based on this.

** It also is the source of an extremely unusual example. The creator of ''I Wanna Be The Guy'' [[FollowTheLeader was inspired to create the game]] when he played an unfinished Japanese flash game entitled ''The Life-Ending Adventure''. The creator of ''The Life-Ending Adventure'' must have noticed, because they finished the game by adding a ''I Wanna Be The Guy'' section.

* ''[[Manga/DragonBall Dragon Ball Z]]'' had a double recursive adaptation: the fourth ''Dragon Ball Z'' {{RPG}} for the [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem Family Computer]] was titled ''[[GaidenGame Dragon Ball Z Gaiden]]'', which featured a new storyline written specifically for the game. A two-part video guide for the game was then released that was essentially a ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' {{OVA}} with footage of the Famicom game spliced in between. The animated segments of the video guide were then reused for two [[FullMotionVideo FMV games]] released for Bandai's short-lived Macintosh-based Pippin game console in Japan.
