* [[CompanionShow Official Fanzine Show]] - a trope usually applying to RealityTV, usually offering Behind The Scenes info or coverage that wouldn't fit into the main programme, often (but not always) broadcast immediately after the main show, on a sister channel.
* Online Spin-Off - A spin-off that's only shown online, sometimes overlaps with Segment Spin-Off, sometimes a spin-off InNameOnly. Generally only an advert for the broadcast programme.
* Shared Continuity - more common nowadays, this spinoff generally carries no characters over from the show that spawned it, though both are in the [[TheVerse same continuity]] that allows for {{Crossover}}s from the original.

[=Spinoff=]s are OlderThanYouThink. The character of Falstaff, from Henry IV parts 1 and 2, was given his own play, at Royal request, by Creator/WilliamShakespeare.

* New Borinquen Pro Wrestling was a developmental territory of The World Wrestling League that was based around independent circuit and former IWA Puerto Rico wrestler tryouts, in addition to a stronger focus on "strong style" ([[Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling if the name didn't make that clear]]). It is another "farm league" that has chugged along after its larger partner closed down.[[/folder]]

* Wrestling/{{CZW}} started "Dojo Wars" in 2014, based around the students of its dojo and those (hopefully) destined for Wrestling/{{WSU}}'s locker room. Sometimes they get into scuffles with students from other wrestling schools.
