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''.

* ''[[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.
