* When ''Last Period'' devoted an episode to showcasing the original game developers' other projects (aptly titled "The Happy Elements Episode"), they added in segments for ''Ensemble Girls!'', ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'', and ''Merc Storia''. None of these games made it westward (and in ''Girls!''' case, it finished up months before the episode aired), meaning it was the first time most viewers would see them or their respective stories. ''Merc Storia'' itself would later come over through its Fall 2018 anime, and the cast of ''Stars!'' wouldn't get their proper debut until their 2019 anime adaptation.

* In Italy, the two main characters from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' appeared first in the CouchGag for the ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS26E22MathletesFeat "Mathlete's Feat"]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' featured the Diamond Dust and One-Winged Angel Keyblades as attack cards. Those weapons were only added to the original ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI Kingdom Hearts]]'' in its [[UpdatedRerelease Final Mix]], which did not see an English release until a near decade later.


* Donbe and Hikari have a fairly long lineage in Japanese releases and cameos, but have only been seen outside Japan thrice: a cameo in ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand 3'', a trophy in ''Melee'', and in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' as Mystery Mushroom costumes. They originated in the Famicom Disk System adventure game ''Famicom Mukashibanashi: Shin Onigashima'', a title most often recognized by Western audiences as "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcPPgqT3VfU that awesome speed metal song]] in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl''". Goku and Chamu, from the other ''Famicom Mukashibanashi'' game, ''Yuuyuuki'', also make cameo appearances in ''Kirby's Dream Land 3''.

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuperBroly'' came in Italy when the anime's dub was still at episode 79 (during the exhibition match between Universe 7 and Universe 9), meaning that most of the Tournament of Power fighters debuted first when Goku thinks back about it and a brief shot of the fighters is shown. It also spoils [[spoiler: Frieza's involvement in the Tournament and his resurrection]].



** ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel'' featured the US debut of ''Franchise/MetalHeroes'' character [[Series/SekaiNinjaSenJiraiya Jiraiya]] who was adapted as a character named "Sheriff Skyfire", who is recruited by BigBad Madam Odius to fight the Power Rangers.

Added DiffLines:

** In a non Wibble Wobble example, the localization of ''Yo-kai Watch 3'' introduced six "Commander" Yo-kai that were originally featured in ''Yo-kai Sangokushi'', a spin-off crossover with Koei-Tecmo's ''Romance of the Three Kingdoms''. Sangokushi never got localized.


** Elements from ''Videogame/EarthBoundBeginnings'' (songs, the Devil Car enemy in Smash Run, and the Magicant stage in the 3DS version of ''Smash 4'') were this, with that game only seeing international release through the Virtual Console in 2015, '''twenty-six years''' after its initial Japan-only release.

* The Japanese version of ''[[VideoGame/PipeworksGodzillaTrilogy Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee]]'' replaced the [[Film/GodzillaVsMechagodzillaII Heisei Mechagodzilla]] (simply known in the game as "Mechagodzilla") with its then-recent [[Film/GodzillaAgainstMechagodzilla Millennium counterpart]], Kiryu. Okay, no problem. But when the game was ported over to the Xbox in North America in 2003, Kiryu was included as a playable character (here named "Mechagodzilla 3") alongside its Heisei incarnation (now named "Mechagodzilla 2"). Kiryu's film debut wouldn't see a US release until the next year.

* First big-screen appearance of ComicBook/WonderWoman, Franchise/TheFlash and ComicBook/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica was in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie'' and not in Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse.


* When ''VideoGame/PanelDePon'' was localized as ''Tetris Attack'' for American and European audiences, the [[OurFairiesAreDifferent original]] [[{{UsefulNotes/Kawaisa}} characters]] got switched out in favor of [[VideoGame/YoshisIsland Yoshi and friends]] -- however, several characters' appearances as stickers in ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'' were not changed during the localization process (and Lip's Stick has been an item since ''Melee'').

* Alabama "Bama the Hammer" Kowalski, a.k.a. Sgt. Hammer, makes her StarCraft debut in ''VideoGame/StarCraftII Legacy of the Void'', but originally appeared in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm''... though she ''was'' based off of a generic unit that was given a name (and more of a personality) that existed since the original, making this a case where it overlaps with AscendedExtra.

* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosForNintendo3DSWiiU'' has an assist trophy of the Prince of the Sablé Kingdom from ''VideoGame/KaeruNoTameNiKaneWaNaru'' (''For the Frog the Bell Tolls''). As you might tell from the title, it was not released outside of Japan. His fellow prince, Richard, was more fortunate, as he received a cameo in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'' two decades prior. Dr. Arewo Shitain from that game also appeared in ''VideoGame/WarioLand3'', ''VideoGame/DrMario 64'', and ''VideoGame/WarioLand4'' (though given a DubNameChange to "Mad Scientistein" in the first two).
