* ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' heavily changed things up from what had been the standard ''Legend of Zelda'' formula at the time; for example, the main hero is TheUnchosenOne who has to work hard in order to even be deemed worthy of being the Hero rather than his role being destined from the start. It takes place in an OceanPunk world instead of the sprawling, terrestrial kingdoms of previous games, and has a heavy focus on sailing from place to place rather than riding through an expansive field on horseback made famous by ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' and ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''. This is something of FridgeBrilliance, as the central message of the game [[spoiler:is that NothingIsTheSameAnymore, and at the end of the game the protagonists set sail to found an entirely new kingdom after the destruction of ancient Hyrule beneath the waves of the Great Sea.]]

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' changed the game formula a bit. Instead of the usual "collect eight badges from Pokémon Gyms across the region", the Alolan island challenge involves facing seven trials across Alola's four main islands; the "boss battles" are against Totem Pokémon and the ''kahuna'' of each island.

* ''Videogame/{{MOTHER}}'': The first two games in the series, ''Videogame/EarthBoundBeginnings'' and ''Videogame/EarthBound'', star an [[TheAllAmericanBoy All-American Boy]] and his friends saving a [[{{Eagleland}} fantasy pastiche of America]] from an AlienInvasion. ''Videogame/MOTHER3'' [[spoiler:takes place AfterTheEnd in an entirely different world, has a message lamenting the encroaching of technology onto the natural world with a heavy dose of CyberneticsEatYourSoul, and the plot involves the protagonists trying to stop their world from being destroyed in a cataclysm the villains intend to cause.]] This may be one of the reasons for the game's lukewarm reception in Japan, despite it being a [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan-favorite in the west]] (where it has ironically [[NoExportForYou never received an official release)]].
