* ''Fanfic/{{Luminosity}}'' is doing to the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' universe what ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'' did to the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' universe--that is, take the main character, make him/her intelligent and rational, and [[AlternateUniverseFic write the story from there]]. Bella isn't quite as much of a ChildProdigy, though.
* ''Fanfic/MyBravePonyStarfleetMagic'' is considered this to ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}''. However, while the first installment of ''Unicorn'' is considered SoBadItsGood (the rest of the series, [[{{Sequelitis}} not so much]]), ''Sonichu''... [[Horrible/WebComics isn't]].
* ''Sweet Apple Massacre'' could be considered this to ''Fanfic/{{Cupcakes}}''.
** There's also ''Muffins'', ''Dresses'' and ''Pattycakes''.
** ''Dipper Goes to Taco Bell'' has gain the same notoriety as ''Cupcakes''.
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosZ'' received a spiritual successor in the form of ''[[http://fav.me/d585i9m Super Mario Bros. GT: The Grand Adventure]]'', this one being a crossover with ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}''.
* A case of one with a fanwork: ''VideoGame/SuperSmashPonies'' is considered a spiritual successor to ''VideoGame/MyLittlePonyFightingIsMagic''.
* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Animegx43 Animegx43]]'s ''Twilight Sparkle: Ace Attorney'' series has been described as a spiritual successor to ''WebAnimation/TurnaboutStorm'', by one of the people who worked on ''Turnabout Storm''.
* ''Fanfic/SkyholdAcademyYearbook seems'' to be this to the ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' medieval AU duology "The Lions of Grand Forest," written by the same authors. However, it's actually the reverse; ''Skyhold Academy'', the first story in the ''Yearbook'' series, was written before ''The Lady and the Lion,'' the first half of "Lions." The authors initially had no intention of publishing ''Skyhold Academy'', so the similarities between the two stories weren't considered a problem. JustForFun, therefore, the later installments of ''Yearbook'' contain a number of vague references which imply that ''The Lady and the Lion'' is actually a RealPersonFic written by two of the school's students. It's entirely up to the reader which is better.
