Top 10 Franchises with the Most Confusing Sequel Titles

Inspired by the Angry Video Game Nerd's "Chronologically Confused by Sequel Titles" episode
The Top Ten
1 Star Wars Battlefront

There's now 2 Star Wars Battlefronts and 2 Star Wars Battlefront 2s.

2 Final Destination
3 Gundam
4 Mega Man Mega Man, known as Rockman in Japan, is the title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man series by Capcom.
5 Fast and Furious
6 Die Hard
7 Microsoft Windows

Windows 7
Windows 8

Windows 8.1
Windows Server 2012 R2
Windows 10
Windows Server 2016
And yes, I know they skipped Windows 9 because some programs would confuse it for Windows 95 and 98 but it still doesn't make any sense (unless you somehow count Windows 8.1 as Windows 9).

8 The Legend of Zelda

I see. The Legend of Zelda does have a lot of games in the franchise.

9 Doom
10 Wolfenstein
The Contenders
11 King of Fighters
12 Kingdom Hearts

This game has way too many spin off titles and not enough actual sequels, we got Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II, KH Coded, KH Mobile, KH 358/2 Days, KH Birth By Sleep, KH 3D: Dream Drop Distance, KH HD 1.5 Remix, KH X, KH HD 2.5 Remix, KH HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue why do we need so many spinoffs and remakes just release Kingdom Hearts III already were tired of waiting a decade for the third sequel to come out.

This series makes Metal Gear look like Kirby.

This awful series is confusing as heck.

A great, but overly complicated series...

13 Final Fantasy
14 Dancouga
15 Rocky

First there was Rocky followed by Rocky II, Rocky III, Rocky IV, Rocky V then they name the sixth installment Rocky Balboa instead of calling it Rocky VI what the hell why do they feel the need to use Rocky's full name for the sixth movie then we have Creed being followed by Creed II.

16 Halloween

This isn't just confusing in terms of titles, but also in terms of chronology.

Halloween has three different timelines, all starting with the Halloween from 1978.

Full list (In terms of chronology):

Timeline 1

Halloween (1978)

Halloween II (1981)

Halloween IV

Halloween V

Halloween: The Curse Of Michael Myers

Timeline 2

Halloween (1978)

Halloween II (1981)

Halloween H2O: 20 Years Later

Halloween: Resurrection

Timeline 3

Halloween (1978)

Halloween (2018, it's not sure if they're going to change the title).


Halloween III (In name only, doesn't have anything to do with ANY of the the timelines).

Halloween (2007 remake).

Halloween II (2009, has nothing to do with the H2 from 1981).

And now, the Halloween franchise in order of release (remake counted):

Halloween (1978)

Halloween II (1981)

Halloween ...more
