* The ''[[Film/ScoobyDoo Scooby-Doo]]'' live-action movie takes place after the original series, as most of those villains re-appear in the sequel.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'' 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 the release in the ''Hyrule Hystoria''.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' is a ContinuityReboot of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' but also has aspects of being a sequel, albeit with a {{retcon}} of the series taking place in the 2010s instead of the 1990s. For example, the girls go to an elementary school because Pokey Oaks is uninhabitable.

* The 1999 Disney [[Film/MyFavoriteMartian film adaptation]] of ''Series/MyFavoriteMartian'' features [[spoiler:Ray Walston, the [[RemakeCameo original]] "Uncle Martin", as a long-lost Martian named Neenert who's been stuck on Earth disguised as a human since ''before'' 1966 (''when the show was cancelled''). Add some FridgeBrilliance to this and Neenert could very well be the same "Uncle Martin" from the show]]. Although this may really be a MythologyGag since the [[AppliedPhlebotinum shape-shifting gum]] that alters the appearance of the one chewing it, wasn't in the original series.
* Likewise with director Richard Donner's 1996 film ''Film/{{Maverick}}''. [[spoiler: James Garner's character, "Zane Cooper," is revealed to be the father of Mel Gibson's Bret Maverick. Garner played "Bret Maverick" in the original TV series.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' mostly seems to be an AlternateContinuity to any other ''Scooby-Doo'' cartoon with some BroadStrokes indicating similar events had happened. Then the series finale has the ancient evil beneath Cystral Cove being RetGone, leaving the gang in an alternate timeline where the only other one who remembers the difference is Creator/HarlanEllison, because he remembers ''every'' alternate timeline. He then explains [[ArcWords "This has all happened before"]], it's just unusual for them remember it, and they end up going on [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou a cross-country mystery-solving roadtrip]]--complete with LaughTrack. The implication is that every work in the ''[[CanonWelding entire franchise]]'' has been the result of multiple {{Cosmic Retcon}}s of the same sort of they had just caused.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' was originally another mostly self-contained installment of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, in this case showing events in the galaxy in between the first two trilogies. However, as it goes on, it quickly proves to be a direct sequel to previous cartoon ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' as well, picking up on several hanging plot threads left over from that series, including the fates of [[spoiler: Ahsoka Tano]], [[spoiler: Captain Rex]], and [[spoiler: Darth Maul]].

* ''Film/MissionImpossible'' is a sequel to the [[Series/MissionImpossible original series]] because it features the original protagonist in a senior role. [[SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome For about the first ten minutes.]] [[spoiler: [[FakingTheDead Except not.]] [[SuddenSequelHeelSyndrome Because he's one of the bad guys now]], for reasons that get barely a HandWave.]] Fans of the original series were extremely unhappy about this.
