* In ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'' #47, the inconsistencies and out of character moments in the one-shot issue ''Excalibur Special: The Possession'' are handwaved as an illusion and manipulation by another force.

** Similar to Eric from ''Jurassic Park III'', Zach and Gray are actually very helpful [[TagAlongKid Tag Along Kids]] and use their talents (Gray's vast knowledge of dinosaurs and Zach's ability to fix and drive an old park jeep) throughout the movie instead of waiting to use them towards the climax.

** Undortunately for poor Roman, this good will didn't last thanks to the company booking him like Samoan John Cena again. Then came ''Wrestling/WrestleMania 32'', which seemed to be specifically booked to spite the hardcore fanbase. The IWC was spitting fire everywhere, ratings were falling, house show attendance was down, and Roman was facing more XPacHeat than ever before. Not helping things was the return of Wrestling/SethRollins from his GameBreakingInjury, who, while still the vile heel he was from before, was widely sympathized by the audience and infinitely more popular than Roman. And then, for the cherry on top, Roman violated the Wellness Policy, meaning the company had to get the belt off him soon before they suspended him. So, we come to ''Wrestling/MoneyInTheBank 2016''. Seth beat Roman clean in the middle of the ring for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, which was the first throw. The second one was when Wrestling/DeanAmbrose, aka the guy the fans wanted to take Roman's spot in the main event of ''[=WrestleMania=]'' that year, aka the only member of Wrestling/TheShield that had yet to become world champion, aka '''''the''''' most popular singles wrestler on the entire roster, cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase he had won earlier that night on Seth and won the title to what was easily one of the loudest pops all year, finally getting his revenge on his ArchEnemy. The third and final throw was booking the long-awaited Shield triple threat the next night for the following PPV. The next day, Roman was suspended. Needless to say, the IWC spent the week of June 19, 2016 on cloud nine.

* VampireTheMasquerade, Second Edition had a sourcebook called ''Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand'' which proved very unpopular because it suggested that the Sabbat (Already a secret vampire conspiracy to control humanity) was ''itself'' controlled by a secret conspiracy within the Sabbat's "Black Hand" faction, which was ''itself'' called the Black Hand. This "True Black Hand" controlled everything from the land of the dead, residing in the [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost of the First City mankind founded]]. There are more details, but things only get ''more'' needlessly complicated and stupid from there. When the next edition of Vampire:The Masquerade came out, they scaled back both new clans introduced in that book to about a dozen members each, declared that the scope of the "True Black Hand"'s power and agenda were extremely exaggerated, and then ''dropped [[OurGhostsAreDifferent a ghost atomic bomb]] on the underworld city they were operating out of'' for good measure.

** [[MesACrowd Madrox]] has a built-in Authors Saving Throw when a writer kills him and changes his mind later - the Madrox who bough the farm was one of his duplicates. He survived the Legacy Virus this way, "revealing" that he always has a few duplicates around for just such an emergency.

* ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'':
** The franchise has been up to its elbows in these. First the controversial ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' books introduced [[TricksterMentor Vergere]], and her philosophy that the Force was too complex to be summed up as simple light vs. dark. This ticked off a lot of fans, so the writers did the ''Literature/DarkNestTrilogy'' and ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'' in response, which had Jacen Solo (Vergere's main pupil) become a KnightTemplar and fall to TheDarkSide as a result of her teachings. Problem was, many fans felt bothered with Jacen's fall, so the current ''Literature/FateOfTheJedi'' series is {{retcon}}ning it to have been not because of Vergere's teachings, but because he encountered something during a journey through the galaxy that made him go crazy. With Disney killing off the Expanded Universe, ''Fate of the Jedi'' isn't likely to need an Author's Saving Throw too.

** ''Literature/StarWarsKenobi'':
*** It never made much sense that Obi-Wan ''Kenobi'' would attempt to hide from the Empire on Tatooine using the astonishingly clumsy alias "Ben ''Kenobi''." This book reveals that Obi-Wan intended to go by "Ben" only, but is overheard by Kallie mentioning his last name aloud to his SpiritAdvisor. By the next morning, the name "Ben Kenobi" is all over the oasis. It's also mentioned that "Kenobi" is a fairly common name, even on a planet as sparsely populated as Tatooine. This reduces his mistake from a major lapse in judgment to a minor slip of the tongue.
*** Similarly, Obi-Wan goes from looking like Creator/EwanMcGregor to looking like Creator/AlecGuinness in 18 years. A common fan theory is that the desert prematurely aged him. Annileen tells the story of an actor who foolishly went out to the desert for six months, and came back looking ''20 years'' older. It's implied that Ben deliberately goes without proper protection against the elements after this, so as to better disguise himself by letting the sun and wind change his appearance.

* While ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXVI'' is considered a good game after it was rebooted when 1.0 was met with disastrous results, most of the fan base didn't like how the player character was left to do everything themselves while the major [=NPCs=] just ordered them around and rarely helped out. The ''Heavensward'' expansion pack remedied the problem by having the major characters take action more frequently and fight alongside the player much more often, making the characters feel like they are a part of the struggle rather than being glorified commanders. Similarly, another major complaint players had was how their own characters were just nothing more than [[HeroicMime mute fighters that occasionally nodded]] and nothing else. ''Heavensward'' tackled the issue by having the player character emote more often and build personal bonds with certain characters while also giving the player more dialogue response prompts to flesh out their own characters.

* In order to make his HeelFaceTurn work, Kevin 11's character was changed from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' to ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', going from an AxCrazy [[TheSociopath sociopath]] to a [[ReformedCriminal perfectly sane]] JerkWithAHeartOfGold. His powers were also different; from absorbing energy to absorbing physical matter. All of ''Alien Force'' passed with no explanation. ''Finally'', in ''Ben10UltimateAlien,'' it was revealed that Kevin is half Osmosian and [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity absorbing energy turns Osmosians insane]]; undergoing the tutelage of TheObiWan when imprisoned taught him to suppress that side by absorbing physical matter. Thus, the explanation behind Kevin's conflicting character presentations and use of powers was finally given a plausible explanation.
