* ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterI Street Fighter]]'' (1987) to ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' (1991) to ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'' (1997) to ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' (2008) to ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' (scheduled for 2015) -- 4 years, 6 years, 11 years and 7 years respectively. This is without counting the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' and ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterEX EX]]'' games. Of course each numbered ''Street Fighter'' title since ''II'' is considered its own series by Capcom since they all had [[CapcomSequelStagnation numerous revisions and semi-sequels]] following their initial release and even taking into account the 9-year gap between the 1999 release of ''3rd Strike'' (the last installment of ''III'') and the original 2008 arcade release of ''IV'', the Street Fighter roster have appeared in other Capcom fighting games in the years between such as the few installments of the [[CapcomVsWhatever Vs. series]] (e.g. ''Marvel vs. Capcom 2'' and the ''Capcom vs. SNK'' series), the Arika-developed ''Street Fighter [=EX3=]'', ''CapcomFightingEvolution'' and the various console ports of the mainline releases.

* The ''Bat Out Of Hell'' trilogy by MeatLoaf. ''Bat Out Of Hell'' was released in 1977; ''Bat Out Of Hell 2: Back Into Hell'' came out 16 years later in 1993, and ''Bat Out Of Hell 3: The Monster Is Loose'' rounded it off 13 years after that, in 2006. * Metallica has fallen into this for their most recent albums. There was a six year gap between ''[=ReLoad=]'' and ''St. Anger.'' Their next album ''Death Magnetic'' (2008) took five years to come out. They've taken enough time making ''Death Magnetic's'' successor to create a third Sequel Gap, if one discounts their Lou Reed collaboration ''Lulu'' (2012) ([[CanonDiscontinuity most fans would definitely prefer to]]). * Italian record producer Giorgio Moroder had a ''30 year gap'' between ''Innovsions'' (1985) and ''Déjà Vu'' (2015). * Dr. Dre's three albums have this. His debut album ''The Chronic'' came out in 1992, while it's sequel ''2001'' took seven years until it was finall released in 1999. Then, his third and final album ''Compton'' took ''sixteen'' years when it was finally released in 2015. * [[{{Music/Eminem}} Eminem's]] ''The Marshall Mathers LP'' was released in 2000. ''The Marshall Mathers LP 2'' was released in 2013.

* The ''Film/HomeAlone'' series is an interesting case. The gap between the fourth movie, ''Taking Back the House'' (2002), and the fifth movie, ''The Holiday Heist'' (2012), is the longest at 10 years. However, ''Taking Back the House'' was meant to take place in between the first and second movies which came out in 1990 and 1992 respectively although [[NegativeContinuity any continuity between that and the originals is absent]]. There is a five-year gap in between ''Home Alone 2: Lost in New York'' (1992) and ''Home Alone 3'' (1997) and another five-year gap between ''3'' and ''Taking Back the House''.

* ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome'' (1985) and ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' (2015) -- 30 years since the last movie, 1985. What's even more amazing is that it had the same director for every single one.
