* ''[[Anime/YuGiOh Yu-Gi-Oh!: Duel Monsters]]'' is a victim of this. Especially how certain events happen. The jarring example is the first meeting with Shadi and Dark Yugi. In the manga, Shadi meets Yugi before Duelist Kingdom and is challenged to a Shadow Game by Dark Yugi. In the anime, he does this ''after'' defeating Pegasus in a Shadow Game duel. This is important because Pegasus explained an evil intelligence within the Millennium Items, causing him to no longer triggering Penalty Games on people.

* ''Film/TheBigSleep'' had to [[{{Bowdlerise}} ommit any references to pornography or homosexuality]] thanks to UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode. As such, it's left unexplained what's going on in the back of Geiger's store that's so secret, what sort of blackmail material he had on Carmen, and why that one guy [[spoiler:hid Geiger's body and shot the man who killed him]]. In the book, the explanations are, in order: [[spoiler:it's a black market pornography business; he had nude photographs of Carmen; the guy was Geiger's lover.]]

* The DC Golden Age FunnyAnimal character The Terrific Whatzit was a turtle version of Comicbook/TheFlash who [[RemovableShell removed his shell]] in his superhero guise; and gained his superhero identity from the fact nobody could tell what kind of animal he was without it. In ''DC Superpets'', Whatzit is the modern-day Flash's pet, and does not have a removable shell.

Added DiffLines:

* Lots of the more inexplicable events that happen in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' did have explanation scenes, that were DummiedOut in the eventual game. For example, the original game had a scene where Sephiroth explains that Summoned monsters are monsters of the Ancients who have dedicated themselves to the Planet, immediately before the boss fight with the Red Dragon, which rewards the player with a Bahamut Materia (the implication being that the Dragon chose to become the Materia to help the party). The process by which Sephiroth wanted to become a God is similar to the process he describes as how to become a Summon, and similar to the process by which Aerith persists after her death in the ''Compilation'' titles... but with no explanation it comes across as just a bunch of stuff happening for no reason.

* In the first ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' LightNovel, it's revealed that [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Mahiro]] has the ability to perceive and resist shifts in space-time, which is how he was aware of the PocketDimension where Nodens sent Nyarko and Cuuko for their fight. This wasn't mentioned in the anime adaptation, which thus far covers novels 1-7 (plus bits of 11); however, it becomes an extremely important ChekhovsSkill later down the line, when [[spoiler:Nyarko and Cuuko are [[RetGone erased from history]] and Mahiro is the only one who can save them because he's the only one who even remembers they existed in the first place.]]

* In the first ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' LightNovel, it's revealed that when [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Mahiro]] and Nyarko infiltrate Nodens' auction house, Mahiro realizes that it's BiggerOnTheInside, which reveals that he has the rare ability to perceive distortions in space-time and resist shifts in space-time, which is how he was aware of the PocketDimension where Nodens sent effects they might have on him personally[[note]][[ShoutOut put more simply]], he's a [[Series/KamenRiderDenO Singularity Point]][[/note]]. In the anime, this moment passes without notice, other than Nyarko and Cuuko complimenting him for their fight. This wasn't mentioned how well he's handling this unusual situation. While this didn't come up in the anime adaptation, which thus far covers novels 1-7 (plus bits of 11); however, two TV series, it becomes an extremely important ChekhovsSkill later down the line, when [[spoiler:Nyarko and Cuuko are [[RetGone erased from history]] and Mahiro is the only one who can save them because he's the only one who even remembers they existed in the first place.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox'' ends just like the original ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'' comic, with Franchise/TheFlash rebooting history into the Comicbook/{{New 52}} timeline. Thing is, the movie omits ''how this is possible'', since in the original comic, this was caused by Pandora tricking the Flash into merging Franchise/TheDCU with the Comicbook/{{Vertigo}} and Creator/{{Wildstorm}} universes. Both Pandora and the merger sequence ended up AdaptedOut, so there's no explanation given as to why Flash and Batman suddenly have new costumes at the end of the film.
