* This is why ''Costume Fairy Adventures'' doesn't really have an experience system unless you choose to put it in - it keeps them from developing traits that don't fit in certain milieus. You're supposed to be able to take the same small group of fairies and apply them to an enchanted forest, a steampunk city, a generic space opera ship, a spoof dungeon crawl and the pie contest at a small village, and those are just the ones in official published material. It helps that the game objective is to be a disruptive element to whichever poor setting is hosting the mischief that week, because it means that not quite fitting just means the pranks are funnier.

* The various ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' spin-offs provide best examples for the video game industry. I.E. they don't just adapt to narrative genres, they adapt to video game and gameplay genres too. The ones below are just the popular ones that got sequels; they've also guest starred in ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'', ''SSX'' and ''NBA Street''.

[[WordOfGod Shigeru Miyamoto]] once said that he considers the characters in the Mario franchise as being essentially being less like characters in a single coherent story, and [[http://www.polygon.com/gaming/2012/9/25/3407672/miyamoto-the-mario-cast-is-a-troupe-of-actors-and-bowsers-kids-are more like a troupe of actors]] that can be cast in a wide variety of roles depending on the game.

* The ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' characters in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' are supposed to be the same characters 'playing' different roles. Some are seen younger (Selphie, Wakka, Tidus, Seifer, Zack); some older (Squall); others are totally different (in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Cloud was Sephiroth's cocky StalkerWithACrush and the bodyguard of Aeris and Tifa; in ''Kingdom Hearts'' both [[EnemyWithout Sephiroth]] and Tifa are part of Cloud's LiteralSplitPersonality, and Aeris is a member of Squall's team).
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' recycles certain characters even when the universes are entirely different. There's always cuddly giant bird mounts called Chocobos; always a funny, eccentric middle-aged man named Cid, who has some connection to airships; and the same Summoned monsters reappear (Shiva, Ifrit, Ramuh, Titan, Leviathan, Bahamut, and so on). They may have radically different designs and roles in the story, but they're the same character on some higher level.
