* Viewers are led to believe that the events of ''Film/SawIV'' take place after the events of ''Film/SawIII''. It isn't until the final few minutes that it is revealed that the events of both films were actually taking place at the exact same time.

* In the ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series, the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar Jugdral]] [[VideoGame/FireEmblemThracia776 games]] are implied to be a distant prequel to the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemShadowDragonAndTheBladeOfLight Akaneia]] [[VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem games]], taking place many years earlier on a different continent. Loptyr, the games' BigBad, is implied to be a member of the Earth Dragon tribe like the Akaneia games' villain Medeus, and the deity Naga is the same in both games. Likewise, while ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is directly stated to be a distant sequel to the Akaneia games, the existence of Priam, who claims to be a descendant of Ike, also implicitly puts it as a sequel to the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance Tellius]] [[VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn games]] as well, though how distant is uncertain.

* While not advertised as such, ''Manga/UQHolder'' makes it obvious in literally the first couple pages that it's a sequel to ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. This is likely because ''Negima'' was ended by an especially bad case of ExecutiveMeddling. Later parts of ''UQ Holder'' drop the "Stealth" aspect entirely, with the series subtitled as "''Mahou Sensei Negima 2''".

[[spoiler: This gets played with however as it turns out it's more an alternate timeline of Negima then a straight sequel to the first series.]]

* ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}'', being the second game directed by Creator/HideoKojima following the original ''VideoGame/MetalGear'', features several references to his previous work. Most notably Gillian Seed's robotic sidekick, who was modeled by his creator after the "Metal Gear menace from the late 20th century." Other references include Junker chief Benson Cunningham being a former FOX-HOUND strategist and the head of the Snatcher project being none other than Dr. Pettrovich Madnar, the creator of the original Metal Gear. However, numerous inconsistencies introduced in later ''Franchise/MetalGear'' sequels has made the series hard to fit into the ''Snatcher'' continuity anymore.

* ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' has story-wise no connection with the earlier games whatsoever for most of the game, until at the very end it's revealed to be a prequel/sequel/taking place on an alternate timeline when the player character is teleported to Rapture, the setting of the first two games.
** The ''Burial at Sea'' DLC affirms this trope further, alternating between timelines of both the main campaign but also of the first ''[=BioShock=]''.

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' was revealed to be a prequel to the ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumSeries'' when [[spoiler:Kane appears at the end of the Soviet campaign, revealing himself as the mastermind of the war.]] This is somewhat complicated by the [[TimeyWimeyBall rather odd nature of the series timeline]], but at least within ''Red Alert'' itself, it works.
