[[caption-width-right:256:[[FandomBerserkButton No, they're not the same character.]] [[note]] [[NoExceptYes They are based on the same character.]][[/note]]]]

In the same vein as TheFilmOfTheBook: when a popular game is adapted into an anime. Extremely common in the case of {{Visual Novel}}s. A sister to AnimatedAdaptation, only the source is VideoGames instead of LiveActionTV or {{Film}}. The difference being that video games, by their very nature, are already animated.

May involve BleachedUnderpants depending on the [[{{eroge}} source]]. [=RPGs=] in particular tend to have [[CuttingOffTheBranches sprawling plotlines narrowed or cut entirely]].

If you're looking for the reverse of this trope--that is, the game derived from the anime--see LicensedGame.

!!Examples of games adapted to {{anime}}:

* ''Anime/DotHackSign'' is an aversion. It's not an adaptation as much as a side story for the game, and a cross-promotional thing. However, others in the [[Franchise/DotHack .hack//]] franchise exist. ''[=.hack//G.U.=] Trilogy The Movie'' is a CGI AlternateUniverse of the ''[[VideoGame/DotHackGU G.U.]]'' games.

* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' had a two-part {{OVA}} based on ''Mystery of the Emblem'' (which in turn was a partial remake of the original game). Was actually released in English (albeit rather quietly), [[OlderThanTheyThink predating]] [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros Marth's appearance]] in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee'' by a few years.
* ''VideoGame/{{F-Zero}}: GP Legend/The Legend of Falcon'', best known for [[strike:spawning]] [[AscendedMeme ascending]] the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFtw7qW7Vcw FALCON PUNCH]] {{Meme}}.
* ''VisualNovel/GakuenHeaven''
* ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'', which turned PragmaticAdaptation ([[VideoGame/GalaxyAngel the game]] was delayed but the anime wasn't) into an art form to create a downright hilarious GagSeries.
* ''GalaxyFrauleinYuna'' (Most non-Japanese fans probably don't even know the games exist. Granted, they're kinda old .. but they ''did'' come first.)
* ''VideoGame/{{Galerians}}: Rion'', an OVA produced in 2002
* ''VideoGame/GanbareGoemon'' (aka ''Legend of the Mystical Ninja'') had a single OVA (''Jigen Jō no Akumu''), which parodied other Konami games (namely ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'', and ''VideoGame/TwinBee''), and a TV series which lasted 23 episodes and a movie (as well as a tie-in manga).
* ''GateKeepers''
* ''VisualNovel/GreenGreen''

* ''Anime/{{Hakuouki}}''

* ''{{Happiness}}''
* ''VisualNovel/HiiroNoKakera''

* ''VisualNovel/KoihimeMusou''
* ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters!''
* ''VisualNovel/MajiDeWatashiNiKoiShinasai''
* ''MapleStory''
* ''VisualNovel/{{Mashiro-iro Symphony}}''
* ''Franchise/MassEffect: [[Anime/MassEffectParagonLost Paragon Lost]]''
* ''VideoGame/MegaMan: Upon a Star'' - A three episode educational anime based on the original series that was produced to teach western children about Japanese culture. The blue bomber is even addressed by his overseas name "Mega Man" in the original Japanese dub (one scene even has a Japanese kid inserting an [=NES=] ''Mega Man 5'' cartridge on a new model Family Computer).
** ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'' - A more conventional anime adaptation of ''MegaManBattleNetwork'' that lasted 209 TV episodes and TheMovie.
** ''MegaManStarForce'' - A follow-up to ''NT Warrior'' based on the ''Star Force'' games that lasted 76 episodes.
** ''The Day of Sigma'' - A prologue OAV that was included with ''Maverick Hunter X'', the UpdatedRerelease of VideoGame/MegaManX.
* ''Momotaro Densetsu''
* ''VideoGame/MonsterRancher'' and [[Anime/MonsterRancher its anime]].
* ''Anime/MusouKakyouASummerDaysDream'', a [[{{Fanime}} fan-made]] ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' anime. Which somehow managed to nab professional actors.

** Which is now getting an official adaptation, ''Persona 3: The Movie''.
* ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'', a seemingly straight adaptation of, well, ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. Easily also one of the most [[SceneryPorn visually impressive]] anime from a game as well.
* ''Anime/Persona4GoldenTheAnimation'' a second adaptation by a new studio, A-1. It focuses on the new material added in the UpdatedRerelease of ''Persona 4'', ''Persona 4: Golden''.
* ''Anime/PetitePrincessYucie'', for ''PrincessMaker''.
* ''Phantom ~Requiem For The Phantom~'' an adaptation of the visual novel PhantomOfInferno. It also got a short OVA that is mostly forgotten these days.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Easily the most successful anime based on a game. They only loosely reference each other though.
** Hell, Pokémon [[LongRunner has a couple hundred more episodes than]] ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6m_985-nr78 And now a miniseries special that is closer to the games is coming out.]]
* ''VideoGame/PowerStone''
* ''PrincessLover!''
* ''ProfessorLayton''
* ''VideoGame/PsychicForce'' had a 2-episode OVA.

* ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' had the Motion Picture (actually a made-for-TV special), [[InNameOnly which completely deviated from the game's plot and characterizations]], and in the case of Amakusa, [[DudeLooksLikeALady gender]].
** There are also two other {{OAV}}s that were never released outside of Japan. The first was a preface to ''SamuraiShodown: Warrior's Rage'', while the second was based on a [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] visual novel game starring [[EnsembleDarkhorse Nakoruru]].
* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction''
* ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays''
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''
* ''{{Shuffle}}!''
* ''VideoGame/SiN''
* ''ShukufukuNoCampanella''
* ''SoulLink''
* ''LightNovel/SisterPrincess''
* ''Anime/SonicX'', which totally redid most of the plot and setting of the two ''Adventure'' games.
** Also, the ''[[SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie Sonic]]'' OVA.
* ''StarOcean EX''
* ''StarSoldier'' is a very unique (not to mention odd) case, not only because the movie was released alongside the game to promote it (probably the first to do this), but because it is actually about how the game was made!
* ''SteinsGate''
* ''Franchise/StreetFighter''
** ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'' - Theatrical film.
** ''Anime/StreetFighterIIV'' - TV series based on the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' games.

* ''Sukisho''
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros''
** ''Super Mario Bros.: The Great Plan to Rescue Princess Peach'' - a Japan-only theatrical film released around the same time as ''Super Mario Bros. 2 (Lost Levels)''. It was notorious for pairing Peach with a CanonForeigner named [[CreatorsPet Prince Hal]] ([[DieForOurShip needless to say Mario/Peach shippers were not happy]]).
** There were also a trilogy of {{OVA}} tie-ins to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' that adapted the Japanese folktales of Momotaro and Issunboshi, as well as an adaptation of "Literature/SnowWhite" (with Bowser in a drag as the evil queen).
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' (Which is strangely recursive if you think about it too hard.)
** ''Super Robot Wars Original Generation: The Animation'' - A 3-episode {{OVA}} semi-sequel to the second game.
** ''Super Robot Wars Original Generation: Divine Wars'' - TV series re-telling of the first game from one protagonist's perspective.
** ''Super Robot Wars Original Generation: The Inspectors'' - A 2010 TV series based on the second game.
* The TalesSeries has a ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' {{OVA}} series, a ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' {{OVA}} series and a TwelveEpisodeAnime of ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia''. There's also ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', which aired in the fall of 2008. ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' got a {{prequel}} [[TheMovie movie]].
* ''{{Tayutama}}''
* ''TearsToTiara''
* ''Anime/TekkenTheMotionPicture''
* ''ToHeart'' and ''ToHeart2'' [[CashCowFranchise and the three]] ''To Heart 2'' OVA series.
* The ''TokimekiMemorial'' series has three anime adaptations - a two-episode {{OVA}} based on the first game, a 25-episode TV series (plus one DVD-exclusive episode) based on the now-defunct ''Tokimeki Memorial Online'', and another {{OVA}} that serves as a prologue to ''Tokimeki Memorial 4''.
* ''TokyoMajin''
* ''ToukaGettan''
* ''Anime/TheTowerOfDruaga: The Aegis of Uruk'' and ''The Tower of Druaga: The Sword of Uruk'' are based on ''VideoGame/TheTowerOfDruaga'' series of dungeon crawlers and set sixty years after the first one. One episode even focuses on references to the game and old style gaming arcades.
* ''TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever''
** And while we're at it, ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', adapted from a SpinOff of the above [[AdaptationDisplacement that most fans don't even know exists]].
* ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/there_is_no_tsukihime_anime.png (What is this doing here?)]]
** Don't deny it! If ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' and ''Videogame/ViewtifulJoe'' are enough to be listed here then surely {{Tsukihime}} anime would make the list.
* ''VideoGame/{{Twinbee}} Paradise'' (OVA) is kind of a weird case, as it may have been based off of the Radio Dramas that were based on the video games.
* ''UtaNoPrinceSama''
* ''{{Utawarerumono}}''
* ''Anime/ValkyriaChronicles''
* ''Anime/VariableGeo'', an OVA loosely based on the game ''VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo''. There was a later hentai OVA based on one of the other games.
* ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe''
* ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter''
* ''VideoGame/VoltageFighterGowcaizer'' (three part OVA titled ''Gowcaizer: The Voltage Fighters'')
* ''Franchise/WhenTheyCry'':
** ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry''
** ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry''
* ''[[WildArms Wild Arms: Twilight Venom]]'' is not an adaptation of one of the games, but a [[NonLinearSequel story separate from the game, but set in the same universe]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Wizardry}}''
* ''WorldDestruction''
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'', but it was only based on the first game...
* ''YamiToBoushiToHonNoTabibito''
* ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}''
* ''YosugaNoSora''
* ''{{Yumeria}}''
* ''VideoGame/ZoneOfTheEnders: Dolores, i'' is not an adaptation, but a side-story that takes place both before and after the first game.
** Specifically, the Idolo OVA takes place before the first game, and the actual Dolores, i series takes place between the original and Second Runner.

!!Examples of games adapted to WesternAnimation

* ''VideoGame/ApeEscape'' now has a Nicktoons flash-animated cartoon.
* ''BackyardSports'' had a TV special, ''NFL Backyard Basics: Football Tips from the Pros''.
* ''{{Battletech}}''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Battletoads}}'' had [[OneEpisodeWonder a pilot episode]] aired as a try-out for a potential series. It bombed on a spectacular level.
* A ''WesternAnimation/{{Bubsy}}'' pilot was made and broadcast. Calling it a "crime against humanity" [[InsultToRocks is entirely too kind]].
* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' is a borderline case, since it is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover in an original setting.
* ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' had a short one-season series.
* ''WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry'', a French-made adaptation of a British-developed installment of a Japanese franchise
* ''WesternAnimation/DoubleDragon'' - 26-episodes in 1994 and 1995. It barely had anything to do with the original games as Billy and Jimmy were turned into twins separate from birth and were given [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms beam-shooting swords]] and dragon masks. It had a [[RecursiveAdaptation tie-in fighting game]] for the SNES, Genesis, and Jaguar.
* ''VideoGame/DragonsLair''
* ''WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons''
* ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim,'' which was also one of the few WesternAnimation examples that was well-received.
* An ''VideoGame/EternalChampions'' series was planned, but the franchise as a whole was stopped dead in its tracks early on in its life to pump Sega of Japan's ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter''.
* ''HeavyGear'': The CGI series suffered from AdaptationDecay to the point where the tabletop RPG {{retcon}}ned it as in-universe Southern Republic propaganda.
* [[TitleThemeTune Super fighting robot]]... ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan''!
** This one is an interesting example, as it was a joint effort between Ruby-Spears and a Japanese animation studio, and has a somewhat {{Animesque}} artstyle.
* ''WesternAnimation/MortalKombatDefendersOfTheRealm'', which also marked the debut of antagonist Quan Chi, [[CanonImmigrant who would go on to later appear in future games]], starting with ''VideoGame/MortalKombatMythologiesSubZero'' and ''VideoGame/MortalKombat4''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MutantLeague'' had a cartoon that ran for two seasons, which is pretty lengthy considering most video game cartoons don't last past one season.
* ''VideoGame/{{Pac-Man}}'', [[WesternAnimation/PacManAndTheGhostlyAdventures twice]].
* An American-animated cartoon based on ''VideoGame/PaRappaTheRapper'' is in the works, and is set to air on Cartoon Network in Fall 2013. This one will be way more accurate to the games than the anime, and will be animated just like the games (PaperPeople in a 3D environment).
* ''WesternAnimation/PolePosition'', InNameOnly
* ''The Power Team'' (aka ''Acclaim Masters''), a cartoon co-produced by DIC Entertainment, Bohbot Entertainment and Creator/{{Acclaim}}, which took the basic premise of ''Captain N'' and inverted it by having five characters from different Acclaim-published video games (''NARC'', ''Wizards & Warriors'', ''Arch Rivals'', ''Kwirk'', and ''Bigfoot''[[note]]all of which save two, were based on previously existing arcade games[[/note]]) transported to the "real world" in order to protect it from either Mr. Big and his gang (from NARC) or the evil wizard Malkil (from Wizards and Warriors) depending on the episode. The cartoon originated as a series of shorts that aired within the first season of ''Video Power'' (i.e., when it was a game reviewing show). When Video Power became a game show in its second season, the Power Team segments were then re-edited into half-hour episodes.
* ''VideoGame/{{Rayman}}'' had a 3D series that only lasted four episodes. A full season was planned, but it's rumored that the company didn't have a large enough budget for the rest of the episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' is another borderline case, based on a game based on a comic.
* ''SaturdaySupercade'' had several: ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'', ''Donkey Kong Junior'', ''{{Frogger}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Pitfall}}'' and ''{{Qbert}}''. In the second season, ''Kangaroo'' and ''VideoGame/SpaceAce'' replaced ''Frogger'' and ''Pitfall''.
* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' has three, going on four: ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'', ''WesternAnimation/SonicTheHedgehog'' (usually dubbed [[SaturdayMorningCartoon SatAM]] by its fans due to the generic title), ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'', and ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom''.
* ''WesternAnimation/StreetFighter'', although this one was actually written as a semi-sequel to [[Film/StreetFighter the movie]].
* ''SuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' is technically a live-action series, but it had animated segments based on ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' (with Bowser/King Koopa substituting for Wart) and ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda''. It was retooled for the second season as a purely animated show based on ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' and for its third and final season, it was reduced to 15-minute segments based on ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' alongside ''Captain N''.
* ''VideoGame/TakAndThePowerOfJuju''; this caused slight AdaptationDisplacement when the characters appeared in the ''NicktoonsUnite'' series alongside other Nickelodeon TV series (It doesn't help that Hal Sparks, Tak's TV actor, voices the protagonist here and there instead of Jason Marsden, his game VA.).
** The original game was actually supposed to come out shortly before/around a TV series, but it got delayed so much that it became more famous for a game series.
* ''Franchise/TombRaider'' had an online series on Gametap.
* ''VideoGame/VivaPinata''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}''
** The animation is part of an MMO/cartoon/TCG cross-media, but the game's universe was the first to be established, it being a continuation of its predecessor ''VideoGame/{{Dofus}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego''
* ''WesternAnimation/WingCommanderAcademy'', done by the same guys that made ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad''.

!!Examples of games adapted to Live Action TV:
* ''KindredTheEmbraced'' (Based on ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'')
* ''ManiacMansion''
* ''Series/MortalKombatConquest''
* As mentioned before, ''SuperMarioBrosSuperShow''.
* ''Series/WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego''
* ''Series/WhereInTimeIsCarmenSandiego'' (which spawned an updated game, ''Carmen Sandiego's Great Chase Through Time'', based on it)


!!Examples of games adapted to Live Action film:
* ''{{Film/Doom}}''
* ''Film/ResidentEvil''
* ''Film/SuperMarioBros''
* ''Film/TombRaider''
* ''Film/WingCommander''

!!Examples of games adapted to WebAnimation:
* The popular ''WebAnimation/{{Arfenhouse}}'' Flash movies were loosely based on a series of [[VideoGame/{{Arfenhouse}} freeware spoof RPGs]] using the OHRRPGCE engine.
