* ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'' appears unconnected to earlier games at first, with a new protagonist named Heather and a different location. Heather spends the first half of the game trying to get home, and when she does she finds [[spoiler: the corpse of her father... Harry Mason, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/SilentHill1''. [[TomatoInTheMirror And then it turns out Heather is partially Alessa from the first game.]] It's complicated.]]

** The ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle]]'' games are meant to be stealth prequels to ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening Link's Awakening]]'': The ending of a linked game shows Link sailing on a boat that looks a lot like the one at the beginning of ''LA''. It wasn't officially confirmed until years after, in the ''Hyrule Hystoria'' guidebook.

* Creator/BrandonSanderson made a stealth prequel with ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}''. The book was published several years before ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', but in the second book of ''Stormlight'', two ''Warbreaker'' characters ([[spoiler:Vasher and Nightblood]]) appeared. Sanderson later said that he plotted out ''Stormlight'' first; ''Warbreaker'' was primarily written to have a place for those characters to be ''from''. In hindsight, several parts of ''Warbreaker'' foreshadows ''Stormlight'', such as the appearance of [=BioChromatic=] Breath paralleling [[{{Mana}} Stormlight]], and the sentient sword Nightblood being very similar to Shardblades.

* For most of its run ''Anime/{{Stitch}}'' seemed like an AlternateUniverse to ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'', where Stitch landed in Japan instead of America. However, in the third season it was revealed that it takes place after a TimeSkip. [[spoiler:Lilo pops up as an adult with her [[StrongFamilyResemblance identical-looking]] five-year-old daughter in tow]].

* {{Averted}}: rumors said that ''Film/Life2017'' was actually going to be a stealth prequel to the ''Comicbook/{{Venom}}'' movie that Sony had announced around the same time. The basic plot of astronauts finding an alien life form mirrors Venom's origin in some adaptations, but this was all just coincidental.

* As Website/{{Cracked}} [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-unlicensed-crossovers-hidden-in-famous-comics_p2/ pointed out]], Creator/JackKirby threw in some subtle hints that his ''ComicBook/NewGods'' series for Creator/DCComics was actually a continuation of his run on ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' over at [[MarvelComics Marvel]]. And his later, creator-owned series ''Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers'' was clearly a [[LawyerFriendlyCameo lawyer-friendly sequel]] to the Fourth World books.
