* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', in the same vein as NoExportForYou, is notorious for this. You get the bare-bones game, which is fine up until it's released in the states, where they typically include extra bosses. Then it's rereleased in Japan as the ''[[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition Final Mix]]'', which basically makes Americans scream.
** Actually, ''KH'' is a strange example. First is the barest Japanese release, then the American which has a few more bits and the European usually has a few more changes too. Then the ''Final Mix'' goes out in Japan.
** ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' did the Japan-rest of the world-Japan thing, too. Oh, and now ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' is getting a remastered Japanese release, too… at least the ''Dissidia'' version was just the original with the changes from the PAL version incorporated.

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' marks the first time a Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse has a DVD containing [[UpToEleven no bonus features at all]]. The Blu-ray and Digital HD versions make up for it with over an hour of extras.

* ''Film/IronMan1'' originally came to home video as a one-disc DVD, a two-disc DVD set, and a two-disc Blu-Ray set. A few years later, Creator/{{Paramount}}[=/=]Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}} unexpectedly stopped selling the Blu-Ray with the second disc. In another surprising move, the two-disc DVD did ''not'' go out of print at the same time this happened. When Marvel repackaged ''Iron Man'' together with other Phase One Blu-Ray Discs, they still didn't include the bonus disc, nor that of ''Film/IronMan2''.

Furthermore, this is becoming a standard marketing strategy to get customers to purchase UsefulNotes/BluRay versions of films by largely creating a vanilla edition for the DVD version and having the special features in the blu-ray instead.

* Creator/{{Disney}}'s thing now is to make most of the bonus features only available in the Blu-Ray and Digital Copy versions, making the [=DVDs=] vanilla or very close to it. It should be noted that Disney was Blu-Ray exclusive during the format war with HD-DVD, so that may have been a factor in their decision to push it so hard. The Digital Copies that come with extras likely do so to entertain the increasing amount of people who stopped buying movies on physical media.
** This trend sometimes gets inverted for 2-Movie Collection Blu-Ray/DVD combo packs, including only the two movies on the Blu-Ray, and a few bonus features on the enclosed DVD copies. Examples include ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove''[=/=]''Kronk's New Groove'' and ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''[=/=]''Stitch Has a Glitch''.

** Though interestingly enough, this is actually a repeat in history. Disney previously had the same procedure during the shift from VHS to DVD. DVD releases would get all the nifty extra features while the VHS version was naturally bare-bones.
