* ''VideoGame/UruAgesBeyondMyst'' is an interesting example. The game was intended to be significantly more ambitious than the finished product ended up being, with regular online content updates continuing the story and extra Ages to explore. When the online component was cancelled, some of said content was reused into a pair of expansion packs. When the online was {{Uncancelled}}, several plot threads were picked up for a bit before the online was dropped ''again'' and the plot was LeftHanging. Everything was eventually finished in ''VideoGame/MystVEndOfAges'', and one scrapped Age was recycled for the later SpiritualSuccessor, ''VideoGame/{{Obduction}}''.

* ''Series/LittleMermaidsIsland'' was a failed 1990 Creator/JimHenson collab show based off of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''. Its two episodes were never commercially available, however elements from the show ended up used elsewhere:
** The "Tell the Truth" song was later reused in a 1997 ''Series/Sesame Street'' episode called "Telling the Truth".
** Flounder's twin sister Sandy was reused in ''The Little Mermaid's Treasure Chest'' books.

* WordOfGod is that this is the case for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', which is why [[UpdatedRerelease the HD remake]] didn't incorporate the two dungeons that had been planned for the original version before they were cut for time constraints. However, ''The Wind Waker'' itself did incorporate the Wind Temple, which was originally intended for ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' before it was replaced by the Forest Temple. Parallel to this, the posthumous former sage of the Wind Temple, Fado, is named after the character who was going to be the sage of the scrapped ''Ocarina'' version before Saria took the role for the repurposed version.

** DummiedOut code for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' indicates that there was supposed to be a regular ShieldSurf mechanic rather than the more limited snowboarding on Snowpeak in the final version. Shield surfing ended up being featured in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', and you could do it anywhere from the moment you found your first shield.

* Plot elements in ''Film/Robocop3'' like OCP forcing people to move from their homes with Rehab-forces and the donut shop scene with all the cops pulling their guns out came from Creator/FrankMiller's original script for ''Film/RoboCop2''.

* A few planned segments for ''{{Disney/Fantasia}}'' made it into some of the other package movies. One segment that was in fact fully animated and complete but omitted from the film (a egret dance scene to "Clair De Lune") was recycled for ''Disney/MakeMineMusic'', but edited to the piece "Blue Bayou".


Added DiffLines:

* An adaptational case occurs in ''Disney/BambiII'', which refits a scene from the novel not used in the first film where Bambi is almost caught by a hunter utilising a deer call. Since this was a midquel it actually regresses the timeline instead, Bambi is still a fawn and recognises the call as his mother's voice, while in the novel he was an adult who recognised it as Faline's.

* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' originally made references to the Hawaiian legend of Hi'iaka and Lo'hiau. This idea was brought back for ''Stitch has a Glitch''.
* Finn [=McMissile=] was originally going to appear in the first ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' film as a character in a movie Lightning [=McQueen=] and Sally Carrera were watching in at a drive-in movie theater, but that scene was cut. He did appear in person in the sequel, however.

->''"We always leave ideas that were in the first draft as you go along. You know, either a set piece that was great but too expensive, an idea that was really bright, but it couldn't quite fit the structure... so we have a little stash of stuff we wanted to do that we didn't get to do. So if that's a possibility, A) I would be very happy to do a sequel, but B) a lot of these ideas, set pieces and all that, actually have in them a really good seed for a sequel."''

Compare SavedForTheSequel, where an element makes it to the main work in an abbreviated form and gets its full development in the Sequel, and DevelopmentGag, where the excised element is still referenced in the final work in some way.

* The original concept for ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'''s Rise was a blonde, [[ChainPain chain-wielding]] ice queen {{delinquent}} who was a fully-controllable party member. By the time of the final game, Rise's blonde hair was lost when she was redesigned to look more like [[Creator/RieKugimiya her voice actress]] (some aspects of the original design went to Social Link NPC Ai Ebihara), the delinquency aspect was dropped to avoid redundancy with fellow party member Kanji, and she was moved to a MissionControl role providing support for the party. In the [[VideoGame/{{Persona 5}} next game]], party member Anne uses a number of these rejected concepts: delinquency, blonde hair, and a frontline ActionGirl who fights with similar-to-chains [[WhipItGood whips]].
