** The ''{{Seinfeld}}'' pilot and the ensuing four-episode mini-season were more-or-less displaced by the later, more famous episodes and when the pilot and other shows air, fans are sometimes caught off guard.

* Most people today think of Kelsey Grammer as that pompous but likeable radio psychiatrist Frasier Crane from that sitcom ''{{Frasier}}''. Some older viewers may remember him as that pompous and initially very ''un''likeable psychiatrist from that ''other'' sitcom, ''{{Cheers}}''.

** The first game to not fall under NoExportForYou, ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]'', was actually the ''seventh'' in the series. Not only that, in an [[InvertedTrope Inversion]] of TheForeignSubtitle, it was released as simply ''Fire Emblem'' in the West, practically encouraging this. This caused some issues as ''Blazing Sword'' is a ''prequel'' to a game that never got released out of Japan, leaving a lot of players confused by what seemed to be a ton of [[SequelHook Sequel Hooks]] that were actually [[ForegoneConclusion Foregone Conclusions]] or [[ContinuityNod Continuity Nods]]. The fandom later discovered earlier games through FanTranslation, but ''Blazing Sword'' is still far more popular than its predecessor outside of Japan.

Ironically, ''Awakening'' was a MilestoneCelebration filled with ContinuityPorn, and actually features from earlier games as downloadable guest units.

* Although created by Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby, ''ComicBook/XMen'' didn't take off as a franchise until its relaunch by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum with the addition of new and highly popular characters like {{Storm}}, Nightcrawler, and [[WolverinePublicity especially]] {{Wolverine}}. Today, most people remember that particular team when asked to describe the X-Men and their ensuing adventures written by Chris Claremont.

** The PC-98 games were made by a partnership, Amusement Makers, of which ZUN was only a single member. As he only had the rights to a few of the characters (Reimu, Marisa, Alice, and Yuuka, along with a handful of [[OneShotCharacter more obscure characters]]), he couldn't build off of the old series even if he wanted to. The most obvious sign of this break was Mima, a ''huge'' player in the old series, appearing in four games, who didn't (and never can) make the jump to the Windows series. Of the other PC-98 characters he ''can'' use, he draws blanks on how to fit them in.

* Averted with ''Zelda'' where, after fans play one of the later versions, they usually try out the earlier versions as well and it is hard to find a fan that doesn't know of the earlier games. However, considering ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time]]'''s success, a few who started with that game call ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' "Zelda 2" (something that [[FandomBerserkButton if said, will get someone into trouble]]).

* Who hasn't heard of ''Rayman: VideoGame/RavingRabbids''? Yet, not many people realize it was part of a platforming series called ''VideoGame/{{Rayman}}'', the first installment of which was released in...1995! For the UsefulNotes/AtariJaguar and Sony PlayStation (also, the [=PS1=] version was one of the best-selling [=PS1=] games ever, especially in Europe).

* ''VideoGame/JetSetRadio Future'' for the Xbox is more well-known than the first ''Jet Set Radio'', which was on the Dreamcast. This is because of two reasons: 1) The first game was released when the DC was losing its popularity in America and Europe, and 2) ''Future'' and ''Sega GT 2002'' were put together on one disc and packaged with Xboxes during the holiday season of 2002, so everyone who got an Xbox for Christmas that year had no choice but to play it. When the first JSR got the HD makeover in 2012 for all download services (except Nintendo ones), a lot of people who only played ''Future'' complained about how different this one was.

* A large majority of the ''HarvestMoon'' fanbase for the longest time began with either ''[[HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife A Wonderful Life]]'', ''Friends of Mineral Town'', or their DistaffCounterpart's. The original SNES title was largely forgotten until the Virtual Console re-release, ''HarvestMoon64'' is a prime example of [[MainstreamObscurity a game that everyone calls amazing but almost no one has played]], and ''Back To Nature'' is just the 3D version of ''[=FOMT=]''. ''Save The Homeland'' and the Game Boy titles are largely ignored even to this day, typically because they lack marriage.

Added DiffLines:
* ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' Due to the gap between the 2D ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' games, the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' series has gradually become the main image of the franchise for the new millennium. This was to the point that some people had initially believed that ''Prime'' was a rip-off of the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series (despite the fact that the former series started over ten years earlier, in the Eighties). * ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' on the Gamecube is an iconic NES title, but a very well-known game however few remember the original arcade title or the [[FirstInstallmentWins sequel]].

* "Amazed", the SignatureSong of Music/{{Lonestar}}, the biggest country music hit of 1999 and the first song to top both the Hot Country Songs and Hot 100 charts since 1983, was the ''second'' single off its corresponding album ''Lonely Grill''. The predecessor, "Saturday Night", stalled out at #47 on the country charts.

* While Sara Evans' 1997 debut ''Three Chords and the Truth'' was a critical darling, it didn't translate into radio hits. Instead, it was her second album ''No Place That Far'' that got her into the spotlight with its #1 smash title track. And that album had its own example, as the title track was actually the second single; lead single "Cryin' Game" didn't even crack the Top 40. * "Amazed", the SignatureSong of Music/{{Lonestar}}, the biggest country music hit of 1999 and the first song to top both the Hot Country Songs and Hot 100 charts since 1983, was the ''second'' single off its corresponding album ''Lonely Grill''.
