* ''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.

** [[Film/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians The live-action films]] are closer to the animated films, however Roger designs video games rather than compose songs, and it's set in the late 1990s rather than the 1960s.

** ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' has its movie, ''Do You Remember Love?''. The movie tells basically the same story but with some major differences from the canon, along with redesigning the look of many things in the series. Later stories take elements from ''both'' versions as canon. WordOfGod is that both the series and the movie are after-the-fact retellings, and the true story of what happened was somewhere in between them; the details are unimportant, only the major events should be considered when speaking of the backstory.

* The ''Manga/DeathNote'' live-action films eventually veer away from the plot as seen in the Manga and Anime versions. Rumor has it that an American live-action Adaptation is in the works with Light Yagami being played by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zac_Efron Zac Efron]], but it seems to have lapsed into DevelopmentHell.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' splits the Terminator franchise by taking the first two movies as backstory and [[CanonDiscontinuity almost completely ignoring the third]], apart from cannibalizing certain plot elements (Sarah's cancer, a female Terminator, Judgment Day not averted). Then a fourth movie came out ''after'' the series, which has nothing to do with it and takes the third movie as canon.

*** Which makes no sense considering that ''[[Series/PowerRangersInSpace In Space]]'' features the ''exact same ranger team'' and villains and directly continued the storyline from Turbo's cliffhanger ending.
*** It actually has some FridgeBrilliance. Think of ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' and its World of [[Series/KamenRiderBlack Black]] ''and'' World of [[Series/KamenRiderBlackRX RX]]. The continuity errors (and outright TheyJustDidntCare bits) some PR teamups feature would be quite well explained. The World of [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive Overdrive]] may have had events that were ''sorta'' like past series, but different enough that Alpha was left in an Angel Grove warehouse, while in the World of [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Lost Galaxy]], he is still on Mirinoi as seen at the end of that series. Similarly, the iterations of the Galaxy Rangers that are found in the World of [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Lightspeed]], ''unlike'' the ones in the World of Lost Galaxy, had ventured to Earth at some point during their Ranger careers and had their identities revealed, hence unmorphed Leo being instantly recognized by Carter as the Red Galaxy Ranger by the Lion Galactabeast's logo on his sword - once the single most nonsensical scene in PR history. Also, the World of [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Zeo]] has a Tommy that someday marries Katherine. The World of [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]]'s Tommy, maybe not. (Fans of [[{{Shipping}} Tommy and Kim's relationship]] can also rest assured that the World of [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Mighty Morphin']] - assuming its Rangers and Earth survived what sure looked like impending total victory for Rita and Zedd - may have gone quite differently than the World of Zeo in terms of Tommy's love life.) It sounds like EpilepticTrees, but it's Word Of God that ''instantly'' explains the inexplicable (if unsatisfying because it renders every returning Ranger someone ''other'' than the character you grew up with.)

* ''FanFic/RWBYGrimmDarkness'' ends up being this to ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' in regards to Volume 3 and beyond, due to a few events in the latter making things incompatible with the fanfic unless a few [[{{Retcon}} retcons]] are made regarding Volume 3. A list of such changes made to Volume 3 are on the fanfic page itself.
This list shows the last 10 events of 327. Show all.
