* ''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.

They may usually contain several [[MythologyGag Mythology Gags]], referencing things from the original work (either as a remake of popular plots or circumstances, or as a mere detail that the fans may notice and the new readers may not even notice as such). If both universes are being used, the original and the ultimate, the ultimate universe may take more liberties than the original: for example, an important character may be KilledOffForReal, because StatusQuoIsGod only at the original universe.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'', which functions as a darker, more dramatic take on the original ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'', showing the more realistic aspects of the war between the cats and the lizards, as well as the culture of the main characters.

* The ''TenchiMuyo'' [=OVAs=] have two: ''TenchiUniverse'', which has all the main characters and more or less a basic outlining of their backgrounds, plus another character and the same BigBad, and ''TenchiInTokyo'', with pretty much the main characters in the latter.
