* ''Franchise/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' is a spin-off of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', taking place in a parallel universe and starring the teenage human equivalents of the main characters. WordOfGod states that while both works are canon to each other (Sunset Shimmer was indeed Celestia's previous student, Starswirl did banish the sirens to the human world, etc.), the team deliberately avoids writing ''Equestria Girls'' plots that could affect the main universe for simplicity's sake.[[/note]]

* The common consensus among fans is to consider ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' as a spin-off of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' as the character of Launchpad Mc Quack appears in both but is one of the protagonists in the former. Nevertheless according to WordOfGod; show creator Tad Stone, ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' happens in a different universe than ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' with Launchap as just an alternate version. If this is canonical inside the Disney Animated Universe, of course, is up to debate.

''Mario'' itself is a spinoff of the ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' series, though the latter is treated as a spinoff of the former by most people, including Nintendo.
