** ''Literature/AFrozenHeart'' is almost like a {{novelization}} except that it is from the [[PerspectiveFlip perspectives of Anna and Hans]]. It also goes into depth on aspects of their backstories and characters.

* Many animated Disney and Pixar films will inevitably have thousands of tie-in novels and storybooks. Some of them are straight-up retellings of those movies' plots, while others are sequels to said movies. For example, ''Disney/TheLionKing'' was actually accompanied by several tie-in books that not only recounted that movie's events, but also covered more information about the film's main characters, such as how [[BigBad Scar]] got his um, scar in the first place and what was his name before he even got that scar. However, some of the events that happened in those books are actually not considered canon with the movies (for example, another ''Lion King''-based book claimed that Simba had a son, but the DirectToVideo sequel had Simba sire a daughter[[note]]the way lion reproduction works in reality the two aren't necessarily mutually exclusive; lions commonly have litters of up to 4 cubs, and in any event Simba, as the new "King", would have been getting every lioness in the pride gravid as soon as they came into oestrus[[/note]]).

* The Heisei-era ''Franchise/KamenRider'' got their own series of tie-in novels, variously serving as prequels, sequels, untold stories, or alternate takes on the original shows. In terms of content, it's a mixed bag; most are disregard by fans for trying to be DarkerAndEdgier ([[spoiler:''[[Series/KamenRiderBlade Blade]]''[='s=] focuses on a now-immortal Kenzaki trying to kill himself, while ''[[Series/KamenRiderFaiz Faiz]]''[='s=] depicts Kusaka raping Mari and ends with him getting his limbs hacked off by Kiba and being taken in by a stalker a'la ''Literature/{{Misery}}'']]), while ''[[Series/KamenRiderDecade Decade]]''[='s=] is full of glaring continuity errors ([[Series/KamenRiderDenO Momotaros]] being portrayed as [[BoisterousBruiser quiet and polite]] is just the tip of the iceberg). The ones that are generally well-regarded seem to be official canon, or at least referenced in official media; ''Series/KamenRiderDrive''[='s=] novel is the first part of a story that concludes in Mach's stand-alone movie, while [[Series/KamenRiderDoube Philip's Kamen Rider Cyclone]] form appeared in the video game ''Super Climax Heroes'' as an AssistCharacter for Shotaro's Kamen Rider Joker.

* The Heisei-era ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series began getting their own series of tie-in novels, variously serving as prequels, sequels, untold stories, or whatever else.

* A video game example: the Backyard Books, based on the ''BackyardSports'' series. They are more this than novelizations because the games have no plot (except for ''Skateboarding'', but there is no book based on that game).
