* The "Paragons of Freedom" setting in the ''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds'' book ''Worlds of Freedom'' places the ''TabletopGame/FreedomCity'' characters in the 'Paragons'' setting. Between the more "realistic supers" tone of ''Paragons'' compared to ''Freedom'''s four-colour approach, and the fact superheroes are a fairly recent phenomenon, it feels a lot like an "Ultimised" version of the ''Freedom City'' setting.

* As mentioned above, MarvelComics' ''UltimateMarvel'' is the TropeNamer, as it's the UltimateUniverse version of the normal ''MarvelUniverse''.
* The DCComics "All-Star" line, which had the ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'' and ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'' miniseries (with future projects based on WonderWoman, ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}, and possibly {{the Flash}}), is a form of this. The series aren't supposed to take place in any particular continuity (although ''All-Star Batman and Robin'' does [[ContinuitySnarl supposedly]] take place in the same continuity as Creator/FrankMiller's other Batman stories), and are supposed to be a concentration of what makes those characters special. As well, ''Justice'' is basically ''All-Star {{WesternAnimation/Superfriends}}'', even if it couldn't legally be called that.

* ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'' streamlines many elements from the Franchise/DevilMayCry series' convoluted story while adding original wrinkles, such as making Dante's mother a literal [[FemaleAngelMaleDemon Angel]]. It also brings back a fan favorite Vergil, who was KilledOffForReal in the original series in the first game through a RetCon in the third.

* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsofShadow'' takes characters and elements from the entire series, but trades the Metroidvania exploration for a ''VideoGame/GodofWar'' beat'em up and the "vampire hunter/horror" theme for "Judeo-Christian and Paganism" to make it more relevant.

** ''ComicBook/Earth2'' is this for the ''JusticeSocietyofAmerica'' and the Earth-2 setting in general, with some readers calling it DC's answer to Marvel's ''ComicBook/TheUltimates''.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' is an odd, crossover based variant of this - it distils various Marvel and DC continuities into a mix featuring ''{{Franchise/HarryPotter}}'' and ''TheDresdenFiles'' and ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'' (the latter is essentially taking the films as a basis and incorporating comics based material) and putting a whole bunch of personal top spin to create an entirely original merged universe.

** Fifth Edition even moreso. After the poor reception of 4E, Fifth Edition is an attempt to WinBackTheCrowd by effectively making a stripped-down Third Edition, which makes it feel very familiar to anyone who played 1st or 2nd Edition AD&D; it ends up serving as something of the new-generation Basic D&D, to {{Pathfinder}}'s status as this generation's Advanced DungeonsAndDragons.

* The ''ComicBook/EarthOne'' series of trade-paperbacks, consisting of ''ComicBook/BatmanEarthOne'', ''ComicBook/SupermanEarthOne'', ''ComicBook/TeenTitansEarthOne'' and ''ComicBook/WonderWomanEarthOne'' with ''Aquaman: Earth One'' and ''The Flash: Earth One'' arriving in 2016, following the Ultimate Marvel formula more closely than the All-Star line, intending to be a modern reboot in a new continuity rather than another mini-series written outside of continuity.
