** Most of the Imperial Guard regiments are based on famous historical armies (Vietnam-era US Army, WWI Germany, Zulu Wars British Redcoats etc.) recycled in space.

** Most Many armies invoke a flavor of the Imperial Guard actual historical armies, albeit in space. Catachan regiments are based on famous historical armies (Vietnam-era the Vietnam-era US Army, WWI the Armageddon Steel Legion is WWII Germany, Zulu Wars British Redcoats etc.) recycled in space.the Death Korps of Krieg is the entire Western front of WWI but made much more grim, Space Wolves are Space Vikings, Dark Angels are Arthurian Knights, Black Templars are Teutonic Knights, and so on.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': ''TabletopGame/AKlingonChallenge'' has much the same gameplay mechanics and presentation as ''TabletopGame/{{Atmosfear}}'', the first VCR board game to be a real hit. That said, ''A Klingon Challenge'' actually includes several gameplay mechanics that would later find their way into the first major ''Atmosfear'' overhaul, ''The Harbingers''.

*** ''Scion'' itself has a couple of alternate settings: the campaign in ''Scion: Ragnarok'' takes place in a setting where only NorseMythology is true, as opposed to the basic ''Scion'' setting where AllMythsAreTrue, and ''Scion Companion'' offers a historical setting in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.

*** With ''Shards of the Exalted Dream'', ''Exalted'' has two different variants of ''Exalted'' [-IN SPAAAAAAAAAAACE!-] No, seriously. The cover even has the Scarlet Empress doing her best impression of [[Franchise/MassEffect a certain Spectre]], plus another version who's a space barbarian queen with [[ChainsawGood autoklaves]] behind her throne. The two variants are Heaven's Reach, which plays space for grandeur and size, and [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Gunstar Autochthonia]], which is a lot more claustrophobic. ''Shards'' also includes The Modern Age, ''Exalted'' in a modern setting, and Burn Legend, which is basically ''Exalted'' as a video fighting game.
