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]]''!")

* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has so far spawned three tie in novels (The Fallen, Unconquered, and Gunsight) that involve the adventures of the [[PlayerCharacter original four vault hunters]] on Pandora. All three take place before [[Videogame/{{Borderlands2}} the events of the second game]].
* ''Videogame/SwordOfTheStars'': ''The Deacon's Tale'' by Arinn Dembo, was initially released as a novella with the Collector's Edition that included the initial release and Born of Blood. Set 33 years after the start of the first game, it tells the tale of the first four races' formal introduction to the Zuul and set up certain subsequent events all the way up to the sequel. It provides a wealth of backstory for the Sword of the Stars universe, which is understandable as Dembo is the lead writer of the game series.
* ''Videogame/TombRaider'', specifically ''Videogame/TombRaiderAngelOfDarkness'', spawned a trilogy of original novels. The books were criticized by fans for depicting Lara Croft as a cold blooded killer more interested in increasing her body count than actually engaging in archeology.
* ''Videogame/{{Doom}}'': the original 1990s game spawned several tie-in novels, with the first actually attempting to build a storyline around the levels of the first game.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' had novelizations of its first few episodes. Very awkward novelizations, created from translating the script into prose.
** Novelizations of episodes are available for numerous {{Nickelodeon}} shows (except ''TheRenAndStimpyShow '' and ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'') from the past fifteen years or so.
