* ''GuitarHero'', ''Guitar Hero 2'', ''Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock'', ''Guitar Hero: World Tour''. Amusingly, it was followed by a return to numbered sequels with ''Guitar Hero 5'', and back to words with ''Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock''.

* ''Film/FridayThe13th1980'', ''Film/FridayThe13thPart2'', ''Film/FridayThe13thPartIII'', ''Film/FridayThe13thTheFinalChapter'' ** The next four sequels sported numbers again, up to ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan''... and then came ''Film/JasonGoesToHellTheFinalFriday''. * And of course, there's ''{{Film/Superman}}'', ''Film/SupermanII'', ''Film/SupermanIII'', ''[[Film/SupermanIVTheQuestForPeace Superman IV: The Quest For Peace]]'' and lastly, ''Film/SupermanReturns'' ** Interesting in that they kept the number for ''Superman IV'' along with its subtitle and then dropped numbers altogether for ''Returns''.

This is a more complex situation than other examples, because in Japan ''World'' does have ''Super Mario Bros 4'' in its full name; meanwhile, ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'' has ''Super Mario World 2'' in its full name in the West, but in Japan the full name is just ''Super Mario: Yoshi's Island''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Breath of Fire|I}}'', ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireII'', ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII'', ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'', ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireDragonQuarter'' ** Only in the U.S., where ''Dragon Quarter'' was marketed as a GaidenGame. In Japan, the fifth game is indeed ''Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter''.

A naming convention for sequels in which the sequels follow the pattern of ''Name'', ''Name II'', ''Name III'', ''Name: Word''. The first two sequels have explicit numbers in their names, regardless of what [[ElectricBoogaloo subtitles they may have]], thus establishing a pattern that all sequels will be NumberedSequels or sometimes LetteredSequel. The third sequel, however, has no number but only a word or phrase to identify it as different from the first, usually linking the two by ColonCancer. This naming change may be part of an attempt to rejuvenate a dying franchise, but often is a reliable indicator of quality (sort of a franchise equivalent of NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast). It should be noted that while this explicitly refers to four-work series, it should not preclude examples where the word sequel first happens in the fifth or later work. On the other hand, it should not include remakes of the original work.
