* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' contains an {{enforced|Trope}} example. Originally, the [[{{Hobbits}} race of diminutive villagers]] was called "the Tohunga" until [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Maori activists sued the]] Franchise/{{LEGO}} Group for trying to UsefulNotes/Trademark words in their language. The Story team wrote a scene to [[MeaningfulRename change around a few names]], with the Tohunga becoming "the Matoran" in celebration of their newfound unity. That was until the story expanded beyond the island of Mata Nui with a {{Prequel}} arc. Since they certainly couldn't reuse the old names, the name "Tohunga" was {{retcon}}ned out, and the villager we of the Matoran race from the very beginning.

* ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions]]'' updates the standard Mario characters and species to resemble their equivalents in later RPGs, leading to things like the Toads being made into mere palette swaps and quite a few monsters being given designs based on the main series rather than the original game. It also brings over the Elite Trio and Dr Toadley from Bowser's Inside Story too, opening up a few plot holes in the process (the former are wearing outfits that mark their promotion in Dream Team, latter apparently never met the Mario Bros before Bowser's Inside Story).

* ''{{Frasier}}:'' Martin was supposedly insufferably crabby and unpleasant before Frazier moved back to Seattle, which is used to explain why Frasier rarely visited when he lived in Boston. Flashbacks in some later seasons definitely show family tension, but Martinís personality isnít noticeably different (heís even apologetic for what little crabbiness he displays), making a lot of the pre-series family drama a mostly InformedFlaw.

* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'': In the flashback episode "The Staircase Implementation," Sheldon acts like his current, flanderized self instead of his more socially conscious earlier persona, despite the fact that the episode takes place four years before the series begins.

* The recent ''[[VideoGame/Mortal Kombat]]'' games are guilty of this; MK9's story picks up right after the previous game (Armageddon) but the characters all look as they do when we rewind and go back to the first tournament (Johnny has short brown hair rather than the longer blondish hair he had at the time, Sonya wears her black leather outfit and has her hair in a long ponytail instead of wearing a bomber jacket and having her hair shorter, etc). And Mortal Kombat X flashes back to the MKII part of MK9 and the characters look as they do in MKX rather than MK9!

* In the audiobook version of ''Literature/RedDwarf: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers'', Chris Barrie does an impression of Robert Lewellyn doing a FakeCanadian accent as Kryten, even though the scenes are based on Krytyen's Season II introduction episode, where he was played by David Ross sounding like C3P0.
