* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' (Seven generations of games, plus spinoffs for each in genres like [[PuzzleGame puzzles]] and [[RaisingSim pet sims]]. Then there are [[Manga/{{Pokémon}} several manga]], the [[TheAnimeOfTheGame anime]] (which, as previously listed, is almost a franchise in itself), and the [[CollectibleCardGame Trading Card Game]]. Probably the most successful translation of a video game to other media, which has led to AdaptationDisplacement among some people.)
