* Recycled titles are common in the ComicBook industry for companies to maintain copyright, especially Creator/MarvelComics and Creator/DCComics. When a new series is introduced with the same title as an older series, it will share the same title and be known as the next volume of that series, but, the numbering may reset at a later date as if it were continuing the numbering of the earlier series, so the series is alternately presented as both a newer series and an older series. This can be played with further when the series changes its title to something else during its run, and later spinoffs and mini-series are introduced based on the different title while the original title resumes. The titles of spinoffs and miniseries may be further recycled, sometimes with little to no connection to the prior story.

* ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' and its [[MarketBasedTitle overseas title]] ''Puyo Pop'': the former could refer to a 1991 UsefulNotes/MSX2 / {{UsefulNotes/Famicom}} game and a radically different 1992 UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame, while the latter could refer to a 1999 UsefulNotes/NeoGeoPocket Color game, 2002 GameBoyAdvance game, or 2003 UsefulNotes/NGage game.

* ''ABoyAndHisBlob'' - The Wii version is the only game in the series without a subtitle, as the original NES game had the subtitle "Trouble on Blobolonia". Still, the Wii version is usually referred to as ''A Boy and His Blob Wii''.

* [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017 The 2017 movie]] based on ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' recycles the older title ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie1986'', which is understandable when you consider the two movies are 30 years apart from each other.

* ''Beyond VideoGame/{{Shadowgate}}'' - the [[UsefulNotes/TurboGrafx16]] CD sequel to ''Shadowgate'', and a teased sequel to the 2014 remake of the original game. Why not consider it just a remake of said sequel, then? Because it stars the hero of ''Shadowgate 64'' instead.
