* The ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreed'' series has flip flopped between numbers, subtitles, and a combination of the two. They are as follows: ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreed'', ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'', ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'', ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations'', ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'', and ''AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag''. After this, however, the numeric sequels were dropped and all sequels have been subtitled.

A naming convention for sequels in which the sequels follow the pattern of ''Name'', ''Name II'', ''Name [[ThirdIs3D 3D]]'', ''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.

The fourth work is often bad enough to kill off the entire franchise. As a consequence, this usually involves {{Sequelitis}}. Related to OddlyNamedSequel and StoppedNumberingSequels. See also RecycledTitle.

* ''AgeOfWonders'', ''Age of Wonders II'', ''Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic''. In this case, Shadow Magic is a corrected and expanded version of II they were too decent to present as a fully new generation.
