* UpdatedRerelease ''Franchise/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia New Mystery of the Emblem]]'' several details that were simply WordOfGod, such as Ogma being a former gladiator, and made them part of the characters' official backstories through its support conversations. There's also a DownloadableContent map which centers around a duel between Ogma and [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Navarre]] similar to the second episode of the short-lived anime.
* Starting with the second game, the [[Anime/YokaiWatch anime]] has had an influence on the ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'' games. For example Jibanyan (who is a main character in the anime and the franchise's mascot) was made into an AscendedExtra while Katie (the female protagonist) was DemotedToExtra in exchange for Inaho (a female character who has a Yokai Watch in the anime).

If an adaptation of a series is popular, it will [[LostInImitation leave its stamp on subsequent adaptations]]. More strangely, a popular adaptation may leave its stamp on the series it was adapted ''from'', if that series is still ongoing. Ret Canon is when elements from an adaptation of a work (or the adaptation as a whole) is later made canonical due to the source material acknowledging it or WordOfGod stating it as such.

*** Technically the Thunder Hammer is not a two-handed weapon, you just can't get a bonus attack unless you have a pair (or in 6th edition, a Thunder Hammer and a Powerfist/Lightnig Claw), which no official model has. However, it was not available for a power armoured character until the 5th edition Space Marine codex, which came out after Dawn of War.

** The UDON comics eventually gave Sakura a karate gi similar to Ryu's so that she wouldn't [[SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack still be wearing her high school uniform despite having graduated]]. A costumed based on this design later made it into ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' as one of her alternate outfits.

** Speaking of which, ''Sakura Ganbaru!'' ended with a DistantFinale showing a now-adult Sakura working as a gym teacher. Sakura's ''Street Fighter IV'' ending similarly shows an adult Sakura reuniting with Ryu several years after the events of the game, and she's now shown wearing her gym teacher outfit from the manga.
