* Although ''Videogame/EarthBound'' does share the same villain and small amount of plot with its predecessor ''EarthBoundBeginnings'' [[spoiler:(namely, the BigBad [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Giegue]] being DrivenToMadness after the end of the first game)]], it's more this than a direct sequel to it. The main plot revolves around stopping an AlienInvasion just like the first game, and it stars characters that are [[{{Expy}} close Expies]] of the party in the first game for the most part (to the point of the main protagonist of the game, Ness, being near-identical to his predecessor Ninten). However, it takes place in an entirely different setting: {{Eagleland}}, as opposed to America of the first game.

* Despite being a [[BeatEmUp beat-'em-up]] instead of a competitive FightingGame, ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' is a spiritual successor to the original ''VideoGame/StreetFighter''. It was even marketed at trade shows under the WorkingTitle ''Street Fighter '89''. Guy and Sodom would later show up as playable characters in the original ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'', followed by Rolento and Cody in the sequels.

* Alot of people consider ''Franchise/MassEffect'' to be one of these to ''VideoGame/AdventRising''. Some even argue that had ''Advent Rising'' not been released, Creator/{{Bioware}} might not have even made ''Mass Effect'' in the first place.

** Not really a successor, but ''Franchise/MassEffect'' director called ''Starflight'' a key inspiration.

More so, the twist ending reveal Creator/DrewKarpyshyn originally planned was quite similar: the frequent use of mass effect caused stars to explode, thus Reapers wiped all advanced civilizations, hoping one of the harvested races would be able to figure a solution. (And harvesting Protheans took so long, it almost destroyed the galaxy. And [[spoiler:[[HumansAreSpecial the human proto-reaper]]]] seemed like their best bet.)
