* Writer Alan Grant was told straight up that this would be the fate of his ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' character ComicBook/{{Anarky}}, who he'd set out to establish as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's son. Originally conceived as a plan by ''Anarky'' illustrator, Norm Breyfogle, to create tension in the character, Grant approached Dennis O'Neil, who had editorial oversight on all Batman books at the time. O'Neil was dead-set against the idea, but gave permission on the express condition that it wouldn't be true, and would be revealed as false months later, whether by Grant or by another writer. As the series was canceled before this could happen, it remains unaddressed. With the establishment of the New 52, it no longer exists as a hanging storyline at all.

*** As a side note, some of these were only points of contention at the time, and later became official Blizzard canonicity as well through the usual monthly retcons of the continuity snarl. The death knights' addition showed that all undead do have free will, the high and blood elves were just two of the survivor splinter factions, etc.

* When Creator/ChrisClaremont wrote Margali Szardos as "Sorceress Supreme" over in Comicbook/{{X-Men}}, the writer of Comicbook/DoctorStrange responded with a story revealing that she had been possessed and really had no magical powers at all.

** With ''Litterature/{{Revan}}''. Drew angered quite a few KOTOR fans- alongside putting Revan and The Exile to mild Badass Decay, the KOTOR squadmates are incredibly shafted, outside of Canderous, T3 and Bastila. Even more so for the KOTOR 2 squadmates, where outside of Kreia (And only as a reference to her as "Darth Traya") none of them are even mentioned by name. Add this in with Exile not recognising Force comsuming abilities (Despite having fought one in the form of Nihlus), her connection to the Force magically re-appearing, the Sith Emperor being a VillainSue and all of Kreia's teachings about the Force and the Jedi? Clearly a sign of Dark Side corruption. And on top of that, quite a few people hate the name Meetra Surik. Quite a few people used this as an example of why the below-mentioned Reboot wasn't completely a horrific decision.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' had an episode called "Reverend Jack Cheese", which took potshots at the show's creator John Kricfalusi, who has been fired from the show when that episode was made.

** Similarly, the ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' writers are doing everything in their power to canonize their story of what happened to Vulkan, Primarch of the Salamanders. They are [[ContinuitySnarl contradicted constantly]] by everyone else. Ironically enough, in creating their story they had to retcon Matt Ward's version, which was restored in full later by Robin Cruddace seemingly by accident.

* The anime version of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' tends to add lots of ShipTease for pretty much any pairing, but one writer in particular, Yuka Miyata, is infamous for this. She is responsible for most major Naruto/Sakura moments in {{filler}}, including episodes where Naruto states that he loves and would always love Sakura [[spoiler: when in the manga it was never more than a crush, and WordOfGod stated outright that Naruto would never be with her]], and where Sakura implies that she doesn't love Sasuke anymore [[spoiler: when in the manga her love never wavers and she ends up marrying him]]. She also wrote the [[PortmanteauCoupleName NaruSaku]]-filled movie [[Anime/NarutoTheMovieRoadToNinja Road to Ninja]].

** Creator/MichaelStackpole's ''I, Jedi'' was written at the same time as the Hand of Thrawn, with deliberate {{Shout Out}}s between the two, and did a similar ArmedWithCanon attack on the Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy (inserting Corran Horn in it and having him repeatedly point out how Kyp Durron is [[KarmaHoudini getting away with mass murder]], people are being idiots, and the plot makes no sense). Some consider it a FixFic, others object to how the "fix" involved making Corran instrumental in ''all'' the students' battles to protect Luke from the spirit of Exar Kun up to and including giving them the plan for their final confrontation with Kun, so that even some of the people who are otherwise ''fans'' of Corran Horn have labeled him a MarySue in his book. Which still hasn't stopped some of us from wondering where the brix Stackpole's Horn was during ''[[IdiotPlot Legacy of the Force]]''.
** An earlier example is Creator/AaronAllston's run on ''[[Comicbook/XWingSeries X-Wing]]'', which retconned the cartoonish, stupid Imperial villains of ''Literature/TheCourtshipOfPrincessLeia'' as skillful Intelligence-trained types who project the stereotype [[ObfuscatingStupidity as an act]] to make their enemies underestimate them. And ''Starfighters of Adumar'' has Wedge break up with the HotScientist who ''built the Death Star'', who he'd hooked up with in the ''Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy'', and fall for an old flame who'd been in a relationship with him for years in the Comicbook/XWingSeries.

Basically, Zahn, Stackpole and Allston had a three-way collaboration going to fix the shortcomings they saw in the Anderson/Hambly era of the EU.

* After a long and well received run co-writing ''StrontiumDog'' with Alan Grant, John Wagner left the strip with Grant; who promptly killed off ''all the main characters''. Skip forward a few years and Wagner resurrected the strip, declaring the last twenty years of comic null and void. The official line is that hose stories were "the legends of [main character] Johnny Alpha and the new stories are what really happened". Cue lots of fans shouting [[BigNo Nooooo!]] in unison.

*** Although the first story where Doom is beaten by Squirrel Girl was written by Will Murray and (as mentioned above) SteveDitko. It can be argued that Slott is simply following Ditko's lead.
