** Because of how prevalent it is throughout the series, it's worth noting that ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' marks the first time since the very first game that this trope is completely averted, with even the DLC case taking place after the events of the main game.

* Jason Robert Brown's ''TheLastFiveYears'' follows two characters who fall in love, get married and divorce. The man and woman alternate solos; Cathy's songs move BackToFront, while Jamie's are in normal (chronological) order. The only time they interact directly is right in the middle, when they get married.

* The continuity of the ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' series was straightforward in the first four games (including ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion''). Then came the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy'', which was set between ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'' and ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus''. There's also ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeHunters'', a DS game set after the original ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'', but before ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes''. Finally, ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'' takes place between ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' and ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'', with flashbacks to events prior to ''Super''.

*** This is a bit of FridgeBrilliance. The climax revolves around Jules believing that surviving the apartment gunfight was a sign from God that he needed to give up his sinful ways and seek atonement. Vincent scoffs at this interpretation and believes it to be just a fluke. However, the audience has previously seen in the film what happens in later events after this discussion: Vincent is killed.

* ''Fanfic/KitsuneNoKenFistOfTheFox'': The author's story-notes on his Deviantart account are not posted in the order they would be placed in the story proper. Averted with the actual story on FanfictionDotNet, however, where the chapters are in their proper order.

Added DiffLines:

* The chronological order of the ''Divinity'' games in absolutely no way matches the order of their release. The first game, ''VideoGame/DivineDivinity'' was released in 2002, but it takes place somewhere in the middle of the timeline. ''VideoGame/DivinityDragonCommander'' (2013) happens an untold number of millennia before it, and ''VideoGame/DivinityOriginalSin'' (2014) takes place about 1200 years before the events of ''Divine Divinity''. Then ''VideoGame/DivinityOriginalSinII'' (2017) happens, it's followed by ''VideoGame/BeyondDivinity'' (2004), which in turn leads to ''[[VideoGame/DivinityIITheDragonKnightSaga Divinity II]]'' (2009).

* ''{{VideoGame/PAYDAY 2}}'': The Reservoir Dogs Heist is played in reverse order (which is mirroring [[Film/ReservoirDogs the movie it's based on]]), meaning you play the second day of the heist first, and then you play the first day. That second day has Locke guiding the gang instead of Bain, who not that long ago appeared to have been double-crossing the Payday Gang, and the reasons why are not fully explained until the very end of the first day.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/ArmadilloFists'' jumps around quite a lot, mostly by describing an outcome in one chapter and then going back and filling in the details of how it came about in the following chapters. It also skips back frequently to fill in the backstory of the characters and to reveal that certain past events didn't happen quite as we were led to believe.

** ''Film/{{Dunkirk}}'' plays with this, cutting between three parallel timelines occurring at three different rates of time.


Added DiffLines:

* TomStoppard's ''Theatre/{{Arcadia}}'' cuts back and forth between 1809 and the 1990s, with the present day characters discussing the events of the past and props being passed back and forth from era to era.
