* The first ''Film/StarWars'' movie (i.e., [[Film/ANewHope Episode IV]]) was originally titled simply ''Star Wars'' on release. The title ''A New Hope'' was added with the 1981 re-release (the first one after ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''), but it wasn't ''marketed'' as "Episode IV: A New Hope" until after the prequels were released (even the [[http://swhomevid.site40.net/vhs_anh6.jpg 1997 Special Edition]] is called simply "Star Wars: Special Edition"). The fanbase typically used "the trilogy" to refer to the "whole" ''Star Wars'' saga prior to the release of Episode I, allowing them to continue calling the first film simply "Star Wars", but this is no longer done anymore, and most everyone within the fandom now refers to the original film as "A New Hope" or "Episode IV", and the episodes IV-V-VI as "the original trilogy".

* The original UsefulNotes/PlayStation officially became the "[=PS1=]" some time after the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 came out. Previously, it was colloquially called the "PSX", after the abbreviation for it's developmental code name, "Playstation-Experimental". Most people will still know what you mean when you call it that, although the especially pedantic will inform you that the PSX was actually an obscure [=PS2=]/DVR hybrid [[NoExportForYou sold only in Japan]].

* The ''KamenRider Series'' has not one, but two shows simply titled ''Series/KamenRider''. In an inversion, only the original series has its name untouched.

* The ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime's original series mostly refers to the Kanto arc, though it technically also consists of the Orange Islands arc and the Johto arcs, although in an interesting case, the following series (''Pokémon: [[GameBoyAdvance Advanced]] Generation'') was a direct continuation that followed immediately.

** The second show with the name, originally intended as a ContinuityReboot but later brought into the existing universe (during the show's run, as part of a ReTool), is officially called ''Kamen Rider (New)'' in Japan and known as ''New Kamen Rider'' among English-speaking fans, though TheOtherWiki in both languages calls it ''Kamen Rider (Skyrider)'' after a name given to the protagonist during the ReTool.

Long time fans may well [[InsistentTerminology insist on referring to the original work by the franchise's name]].
