** The entirety of this game for that matter as EA rebooted the series with a new story, effectively preventing the first game's story from continuting despite ending on a cliffhanger.



* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', you can find a positive pregnancy test in the Joker's office, indicating that Harley Quinn is pregnant. In the ''Harley Quinn's Revenge'' DLC, you find several negative birth control tests and the test's box has been changed to read "may give false positive".

Seems the writers got cold feet and quickly backtracked.

* The Wyatt Family and the Wrestling/{{LeaugeOfNations}} were supposed to get into a feud that would have, presumably, destroyed the Leauge for good, but Bray Wyatt was injured at a house show and the feud was dropped. It didn't save the Leauge, however, as they fell apart and disbanded a few weeks later.

[[WordOfGod According to slowbeef]] at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7n3hjpn6FqY the RTX 2016 panel (Around 53:30)]], the longplayer ended up doing things out of order and wasted a lot of time. slowbeef has considered playing through the game himself, but he never got around to doing it.

** Back in UsefulNotes/{{The Bronze Age|Of Comics}}, Robert Kanigher set up a LoveTriangle between Batman, Green Arrow and BlackCanary. Mike Friedrich began his run the very next issue, and immediately got rid of the development by claiming Canary actually loved Batman ''like a brother'', not in a romantic sense.

* Creator/DwayneMcDuffie's ''Franchise/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}}'' run had several of these, as he was infamously fired for speaking out against the ridiculous amount of ExecutiveMeddling his run received. In addition to developing a friendship between Comicbook/{{Firestorm}} and Doctor Light, [=McDuffie=] had planned to have Comicbook/{{Icon}} join the team, as well as appearances from some of his other Creator/{{Milestone|Comics}} characters.
* After ComicBook/GreenArrow killed Prometheus at the end of ''Comicbook/JusticeLeagueCryForJustice'', it was mentioned that Green Lantern and the Flash were unable to find the advanced, computerized helmet Prometheus used [[AwesomeByAnalysis to defeat his opponents]]. Astute readers remembered that prior to his death, Prometheus had essentially lobotomized his partner, Ira Quimby, who mysteriously vanished around the same time the helmet did. It was pretty clear DC was building things up to have Ira become [[LegacyCharacter the new Prometheus]] via a ClothesMakeTheSuperman or BrainUploading situation, but this never occurred.

* For a while on ''Podcast/MikeAndTomEatSnacks'', when Nabisco was having financial troubles, Michael Ian Black and Creator/TomCavanagh took credit for the Nabisco's problems, which they said were from they bad reviews they gave to their snacks. For a couple of episodes afterward Mike and Tom were on the run from Nabisco's goons, rating snacks from different classified locations. Eventually they started doing episodes at their studio again, and they never explained what happened with Nabisco.

** There's a story arc involving two characters named Nikki and Paulo, who actually had quite a bit of backstory and {{plot}} setup to them. They were introduced as [[RecurringExtra background characters]] who had suddenly acquired more dimension. The problem? The creators didn't use the extras that had long been on the show, any of the recurring minor survivors (e.g., Steve), or any mentioned but unseen characters (Tracy, Neil); the new characters' [[RememberTheNewGuy abrupt appearance]] caused quite a bit of [[TheScrappy fan backlash]]. The intricate plot set up for the two was condensed into a single episode, and the two were summarily killed off.

** Garrosh Hellscream's character arc was one that was changed so significantly it may as well have been aborted. Garrosh was intended to be a hot head struggling with the reigns of leadership and ultimately growing into an appreciable character who fit well with the dichotomy of the Horde. Unfortunately, the writers flubbed Garrosh's writing, making him unsympathetic with his positives being an InformedAbility. Once the developers realized he'd become TheScrappy and suffered from CharacterShilling, they gave up on making him a character the players were supposed to like or understand, turning him from "harsh but fair leader the people need" to "violent, xenophobic TyrantTakesTheHelm who needs to be deposed."

** The ''manga'' adaptation of ''IV'' gave some satisfaction on one end, and Much Cursing Ensued on the other. The manga adaptation of the scene between Fou-lu and Soniel [[spoiler:features Fou-lu backstabbed and run completely through--with Fou-lu manifesting an energy sword and decapitating him whilst ''still having the Dragonslayer sticking through him''; Fou-lu then shoves this out by hand. Truly a SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome.]] Yuna, on the other hand, survives -- and this is especially maddening, seeing as other material in the artbook that didn't get the chance to be included in the game ''was'' included in the manga. This also pretty makes Yuna a complete KarmaHoudini.

* In the third ''Film/{{Halloweentown}}'' movie (''Halloweentown High''), the main point of the plot is Marney trying to get humans and the Halloweentown denizens to integrate, culminating in a scene where the humans discover the true identities of their real friends, and they decide that it [[NotSoDifferent doesn't matter that they're different]]. In the 4th movie (''Return to Halloweentown''), Marney (now played by a different actress) is off to magical college, with absolutely [[ContinuityReboot no reference]] to the integration of the worlds. Plus, both her and her mother seem to have lost all CharacterDevelopment they got in the first three movies.
** While the part about the change of actress and loss of character development is true, one of the main plot points of Return to Halloweentown is that Marnie in unable to perform magic at Witch U. This is because the school was originally only for witches and warlocks but because of the two worlds being integrated a lot of students decided to go to mortal universities, so Witch U started allowing all magical creatures to attend in order to fill their study body.
