** ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'': * AuthorsSavingThrow: In ''The Royal Rangers'', Kendall introduces the Dino Drive mode, specifically stating it was just for when the Rangers use the Megazord. This is an Author's Saving Throw from ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'', where one of the (many) complaints was that the Samurai Rangers had Mega Mode for use in the Megazord but never explained why the Rangers couldn't use it in regular battle. Granted, there wasn't much of an explanation in ''Dino Charge'', but Kendall pointing out the armor was only for Megazord battles was still more than ''Samurai'' ever said about the issue. (Like ''Samurai's'' Mega Mode, Dino Drive is a Megazord only enhancement because it didn't come from ''Super Sentai''; they're filming new cockpit footage anyway but they don't want to sacrifice ''Kyoryuger'' footage to fit the enhancement in regular battle.)

** The ''Series/DoctorWho'' [[Recap/DoctorWhoTVMTheTVMovie 1996 TV movie]] included a scene in which the Doctor says that he is half-human; this was widely disliked and subject to FanonDiscontinuity. However, in the Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse comic ''Doctor Who: The Forgotten'', the Doctor notes that he said that just to screw with his enemy's head. Moffat has stated, when asked about the {{canon}}icity of this, that the Doctor did indeed utter those words, very carefully not specifying whether they were ''true''. After all, "the Doctor lies".

"Hell Bent", the Moffat-penned Series 9 finale, has [[spoiler: Ashildr/Me]] ask the Doctor if he's half-human (it has to do with [[spoiler: the possibility that he is The Hybrid]]), but he only asks her if it ''matters'' what he is by way of reply, and the conversation takes another path from there.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', the Dressrosa arc was [[ArcFatigue incredibly long]], at almost 2,000 pages long and going on for over two years in ''Weekly Shonen Jump''. As if Eiichiro Oda was apologizing for it dragging on, the following arc, the Zou arc, is literally one-fifth of Dressrosa's length.

** "Dragon Quest" eventually got a saving throw in the form of "Gauntlet of Fire". The former episode had received lots of criticism for [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot wasting the opportunity]] to explore dragon culture and portraying the dragons in general as AlwaysChaoticEvil. The latter episode included far more information about dragon culture, as well as introducing more nuanced dragon characters.
** Both "The Crystalling" and "Gauntlet of Fire" turned out to be throws for Spike-centered episodes in general. Most of Spike's earlier focus episodes had received criticism for sticking Spike with the ConflictBall or IdiotBall to make the plots work. Those two episodes both bucked the trend and focused on Spike's efforts in helping solve the conflicts rather than making him the cause of the problem.

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'':
** Not in-game, but rather with the marketing. [[Creator/TelltaleGames Telltale]] got some heat for featuring only male Jesse in the marketing for the game, which implies the male character is the ''true'' mc/pc and and causes female gamers to feel left out and underrepresented... but this was fixed in later advertisements that started to pop up around the release of episode 2, which featured individual commercials for both versions of Jesse, or showing both versions in the ''same'' commercials.
** One can argue that the character deaths in episodes 3 & 4 was one for the accusations that the game was too [[LighterAndSofter soft]] compared to other Telltale games.

* The ''XY'' seasons of the {{Anime/Pokemon}} anime seem to be trying to undo the Flanderization of previous eras. For once the series retains Ash's previous CharacterDevelopment rather than the usual SnapBack into an incompetent rookie. The era also tries to find more of a happy medium for Team Rocket, after spending most post-Kanto seasons interchanging between over utilised annoying joke characters or underplayed serious villains, they are now reasonably used comedic {{NotSoHarmlessVillain}}s.

** Madara Uchiha has turned into a GodModeSue; so much that even Kishimoto himself stated in an interview (which was before his revival [[spoiler:and absorption of the Juubi]]) that he doesn't know how to kill him off. Suddenly, just after Madara achieves all his goals, [[spoiler:Black Zetsu impales him, stating he was actually working for [[RememberTheNewGuy Kaguya]] all along. Cue Madara being overloaded with chakra and taken over by Black Zetsu, turning into Kaguya as a result. Going further, Naruto and Sasuke are given a sealing technique specifically for sealing Kaguya, which does just that as well as ejecting the tailed beasts and Madara, who dies from losing said tailed beasts.]] Note that the fans weren't very impressed by this AssPull, resulting in a situation where [[MortonsFork the treatment is as bad as the disease]].

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' originally didn't allow players to alternate characters in challenge maps like in the previous games. This caused a ton of negative feedback, and was addressed by the developers on twitter, where they announced that there would be two patches for the game; First would add combat character selection, and the second would add Predator character selection. The patches were released on October and November, respectively.
** However, some still complain about how there are no leaderboards for alternate characters and how the players cannot freely select dual play in challenges. The former was explained because the amount of maps with the amount of characters (40 x 8) would require a lot of work to merely compare points. While the latter doesn't have an official explanation, it's likely that the reason is again the amount of characters; Creating medals (Especially predator mode) for each combination of characters (8x7) for all 40 challenge maps would be an huge task, and in addition, Harley Quinns Berserk mode already occupies the Dual Play button, which would render her unusable without nerfing.
** Due to the issues with the PC port, the devs offered all of the previous Arkham Games for free for those who bought Knight, and PC got the Community challenge pack (Community chosen challenge maps remastered from Asylum and City) before consoles got it. However, as the PC version still has problems after numerous patches, portions of the fanbase think that the throw fell short.

* There's a bit of a Saving Throw War going on between people at Marvel who like Comicbook/SquirrelGirl and those who don't: Originally, Squirrel Girl beat Doctor Doom by herself. A later comic indicated [[ActuallyADoombot it was a Doombot]]. Another later comic revealed that it was not a Doombot. Then, Squirrel Girl beats Comicbook/{{Thanos}} ([[TakeOurWordForIt offscreen]]) and the Watcher himself is there verifying that it is not a "robot, clone, or simulacrum" and is indeed the real Thanos. Later on, Thanos reveals he can make really ''good'' clones that even fool the Watcher. But according to WordOfGod, that really ''really'' was the real Thanos. And to make things goofier, ''everything'' about the Thanos fight was written by DanSlott. An even later SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} comic has her visit Doom in order to borrow a time machine, and Victor just face-palms, shakes his head and points it out. An inset from Tippy-Toe points out that Squirrel Girl pwning Doom was written by Steve Freakin' Ditko, and is thus, ''so'' canon.

* Mr. Freeze had one in the mid-90's. In the second mini-series starring the Tim Drake Comicbook/{{Robin}}, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker finds his gang taken over by Freeze. Joker puts an end to that by dousing Freeze's armor with acid, then electrocuting him to death. Around this time, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had started and Mr. Freeze's introductory episode "Hearts of Ice" was ''insanely popular'', going so far as to net the series an award. Thus, DC had a problem: Freeze was now popular, but they killed off Freeze in the comics! Solution? When they reintroduce Freeze during ''ComicBook/{{Knight|fall}}quest'', they reveal that Freeze had indeed survived, using a device in his old armor to put him in suspended animation.

* In ''Film/TheDivergentSeriesInsurgent'', Tris had her hair cut into a pixie cut, much shorter than it was in [[Literature/{{Divergent}} the books]][[note]]The reasoning for this is Creator/ShaileneWoodley having cut her hair completely short for ''Film/TheFaultInOurStars'' and couldn't grow it out in time for ''The Divergent Series: Insurgent''[[/note]], which received complaints. This led to ''The Divergent Series: Allegiant'' having her hair now at chin-length, which is how she cut it in the books.
