** Though there is broad disagreement among fans, what most fans ''will'' agree on is that the novel ''Far Country'' has no place in the canon, and in a strange way, the line developers agree. While the devs won't outright RetCon ''Far Country'' out of existence and still declare that as a BattleTechExpandedUniverse novel it is canonical, not a single work since then comes within shouting distance of [[AbsentAliens the idea of aliens]] existing in the ''Battletech'' universe. They'd rather just leave it in a cleaning cupboard and not think about it.

** The Soulgrinder in the Daemons Fantasy army. It would be fine for 40k but not fit the low technology of Warhammer Fantasy.

** The Soulgrinder in the Daemons Fantasy army. It would be fine for 40k but not fit the low technology of Warhammer Fantasy.Fantasy, mainly because in 40k it's made by combining the remains of a Defiler (a giant crab-like machine) with a daemon. Since Defilers don't exist in Warhammer Fantasy, Soulgrinders shouldn't, either.

** While never WordOfGod, it was a fairly well-known open secret that ''Dirty Secrets'' was created without official approval by a disgruntled writer as a TakeThat against WhiteWolf management; and its status in canon was never fully accepted.

** The Soulgrinder allowed into the Daemons Fantasy army. It's like put a Titan in the Empire or eldar weapons in the High Elves army. It works for 40k but not fit in fantasy at all. It is way too technological for the Warhammer Fantasy background.

** Another World of Darkness supplement a lot of players prefer to ignore is ''TabletopGame/MummyTheResurrection,'' for the reason that no modernizing can make bandages wrapped around a rotting corpse look good.
*** This is more a disconnect between the illustrations and the text. A lot of the text seems to suggest that Mummies have their own little version of the Masquerade and look just as human as non-Nosferatu Kindred. Meanwhile the art depicts them as desiccated corpses wrapped in bandages.

* Many TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}} fans claim that the Greyhawk Wars never happened, or at least happened in a much different way than official Creator/{{TSR}} canon describes it. Others also declare that the sci-fi elements introduced in modules like ''Adventure to the Barrier Peaks'' don't exist and are not part of the setting.
** Something that nobody ever seems to understand... the S series modules (Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, White Plume Mountain and '''especially''' TabletopGame/TombOfHorrors) were never ''intended'' to be actual adventure modules. The books told you that in the front. They were special convention modules where you were handed a pre-made set of characters and the idea was to live as long as you can. They really are ''not'' part of the actual setting.

* Quite a lot of TabletopGame/{{Mystara}} fans prefer to believe that TSR's conversion of their favorite game-world to 2nd Edition AD&D was AllJustADream.

** It got worse: when TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}}'s VillainSue Vecna kicked the Lady of Pain's behind and forced her to ''hire adventurers to get him out of Sigil''. Where she would expected to find adventurers more powerful than herself is uncertain. This was, mind, Vecna's first stop after escaping from Ravenloft, in case that wasn't enough.

** Like 40000, many fans despise the background changes, units and rules introduced in the eighth edition and several army books. Guess who's at fault..... You are right, Robin Cruddace and Matt Ward.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'': A lot of fans hate The End Times and the Age of Sigmar, and detest the changes of the lore and the retcons. For a good reason they create the fan-made ''[[https://1d4chan.org/wiki/The_9th_Age Fantasy Battles: The Ninth Age]]''.
