* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' had multiple series of junior novels, some of which told new stories not based on the comics or DirectToVideo movies. However, these were not treated as tie-ins but as full canon, dealing with the main story arcs and doing it more in-depth than the other mediums usually could. Interestingly enough, the movie novelizations tended to be folded into the tie-in series rather then set apart (as in, the ''Legends of Metru Nui'' novelization was published as ''Bionicle Adventures #4''). Additionally, all but the first few were written by one of the franchise's main story editors, who also wrote the comics and web serials.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series has several books connected to it, expanding the plot outside of the original parameters and filling in gaps, including but not limited to covering the deeds of the Spartans other than Master Chief John-117.

* When ''{{Doug}}'' went to Disney, a few episodes of the show were part of the Disney Chapters collection of books. About a year later, Doug got not one, but ''two'' spin-off titles: ''Doug Chronicles'', which were original stories about the title character, and ''Doug Mysteries'', which was the same thing [[RecycledInSpace but as mysteries]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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. Most are poorly regarded for various reasons; several are DarkerAndEdgier ([[spoiler:''[[Series/KamenRiderBlade Blade]]''[='s=] focuses on a now-immortal Kenzaki trying to kill himself, ''[[Series/KamenRiderFaiz Faiz]]'' depicts Kusaka raping Mari and ends like ''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).

* ''{{Robotech}}'': Jack Mckinney -- a pseudonym for Science Fiction authors James Luceno and Creator/BrianDaley -- wrote a series of [[{{Novelization}} novelizations]] of the composite adaptation, which continued into a version of the unproduced ''Sentinels'' sequel, and several original tie-ins. The novels are considered FanonDiscontinuity by many fans because of the additions made to the premise, such as inventing the "Thinking Cap" mental control system for the HumongousMecha, as well as turning the AppliedPhlebotinum, previously just a flower that somehow generates power, into a narcotic that somehow directs the destiny of the universe. (Though no one ever ''[[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial outright]]'' said "[[Film/{{Dune}} He who controls the Protoculture]], ''[[Film/{{Dune}} controls the universe]]''!")
