** The line often taken with "Death comes to Time" is that it takes place in another continuity, due to Time Lords being [[RealityWarper Reality Warpers]] instead of SufficientlyAdvancedAliens and [[spoiler:the 7th Doctor dying.]] Though some use this to consider the TV Movie and New Who non-canon.

** It can be argued that the post-PS1 classic era games take place in an AU from the originals, due to several continuity and characterization differences.

* ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame'' considers the two ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' films as canon, with several [[MythologyGag references even to minor details in those films]]. It does not consider ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' to be canonical, as most of the characters are depictions of the actors from the movies, instead of the radically different cartoon characters. However, it does borrow some ideas from the cartoon, such as the idea that all Ghosts are made of slime/ectoplasm, and they don't keep Slimer as a friend/pet, but they DO keep him in his own cage separate from the main containment facility.
* ''[[Franchise/{{SonicTheHedgehog}} Sonic the Hedgehog]]'':
** Where do we even start with SonicTheHedgehog? In addition to the games.
** We have [[AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog four]] [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM separate]] [[SonicUnderground cartoon]] [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom series]] the latter of which also has two tie-in [[VideoGame/SonicBoom video games]] and a tie-in comic book.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' is a special case, as the episode "Citizen Ghost" confirms it takes place after the first movie, but "Take Two" reveals that said movie (starring the same cast) exists in their world, as well, so any discrepancies between the cartoon and the film can be explained as artistic license taken when the film was made ''in the cartoon continuity''. This would explain why the series didn't portray them as bankrupt pariahs like they were in the beginning of ''Ghostbusters II''.

* The ''Franchise/{{Halloween}}'' movies were rebooted three (or possibly four) times and taking the whole franchise into account, there are, at least, potentially 5 timelines.

** A new upcoming 2016 movie titled ''Halloween Returns'' aims to reboot the franchise again with a brand new continuity canonizing only the first two films in a way similar to what 2013's ''Film/TexasChainsaw3D'' did to the ''Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre'' movies.

* ''Franchise/TheSmurfs'' has currently three different continuities: the [[ComicBook/TheSmurfs comic books]], the [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs cartoon show]], and [[Film/TheSmurfs Sony Pictures' film series]], which will be getting a reboot in 2017. To tell apart the continuities, Greedy is the village chef in the cartoon show, while in the comic books and the movie Chef, Baker, and Greedy are separate characters. For other notable differences, read [[http://smurfs.wikia.com/wiki/Smurfs_Comic_Book_Universe these]] [[http://smurfs.wikia.com/wiki/Smurfs_Animated_Universe three]] [[http://smurfs.wikia.com/wiki/Smurfs_Live-Action_Film_Universe pages]] at the Smurfs Wiki. (Their stories in the ''ComicBook/JohanAndPeewit'' series could be considered a fourth continuity, since their Smurf Village is located in the Cursed Land instead of the Smurf Forest.) Sometimes for the sake of merchandise like the ''Smurfs Village'' game app, there would be mixing of characters from all three continuities.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/AutobiographyOfRed'' contains two modernized retellings of the story of [[Characters/ClassicalMythologyMonsters Geryon]] and [[Characters/ClassicalMythologyMortalsAndDemigods Herakles]]. In one, which is closer to the original myth, Herakles kills Geryon. In the other, he seduces him and breaks his heart.
