* When Mr. Freeze was cloned in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', he was depicted as still being bald despite having hair when we see a pre-Freeze Victor Fries in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''--though considering the clone later redeveloped the condition, maybe it was a sign of CloneDegeneration.

* Whenever Ash appears in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' flashbacks he is an [[{{keet}} excitable]] FriendToAllLivingThings and an all-around NiceGuy. This is ignoring his personality in the ''Original Series'' (Kanto and Johto) where he was more of an IdiotHero, had more aggressive traits, and was stubborn. It was his CharacterDevelopment that transformed him into a more gentle character by Sinnoh.

** In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', there are numerous cutscenes which show one of the characters fifty years ago. Throughout the game, he acquires numerous bits of equipment, and the items you've got are visible on his character model even in the flashback cutscenes.

** The first ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' game has a flashback to ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD Sonic CD]]'', where Amy uses her modern design. They apparently didn't feel like making another model for a few seconds worth of footage.
** A very minor instance occurs with Classic Tails and Classic Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', in which they are voiced by their current incarnations' actors. This isn't too much of a Backported Development considering they never spoke in the old games at all, but it does mean that throughout his life, Eggman went from sounding like Mike Pollock to sounding like Deem Bristow... and then back to sounding like Mike Pollock again. This is a justified example, however, due to Bristow passing away almost five years prior.

** One episode also has Pikachu suffer amnesia, though is still by reflex kind natured and naive, keeping in mind that Pikachu started off a disobedient lazy {{Jerkass}} when Ash received him in the first episode.

* ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny]]''[='=]s version of Yoshimitsu strongly resembles his ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 6'' appearance, where he looks like an alien rather than a samurai which is what he's supposed to be in the ''Soul'' series (it takes place centuries earlier). In the first ''Tekken'', Yoshimitsu looks more like a knight, which is more consistent with how he would have looked when the ''Soul'' series is set. Justified by the fact that the Yoshimitsu in both series are [[LegacyCharacter separate individuals bearing the same name]]. As theorized for years and finally confirmed in ''Soulcalibur V'' (which included a "Yoshimitsu the Second," the successor to the Yoshimitsu in the preceding four games), the leader of the Manji clan is whomever has ownership of a particular sword, also named Yoshimitsu, which is earned by [[KlingonPromotion defeating the previous Yoshimitsu in a]] DuelToTheDeath and assuming their name, allowing the cursed katana to accept them as their rightful wielder. The new Yoshimitsu then adopts the mannerisms, fighting style, and identity of their predecessor, [[LegacyImmortality thus continuing on the folk legend of Yoshimitsu]]. Beyond this, Yoshimitsu's design almost always changes between games (''[[DreamMatchGame Tekken Tag Tournament]]'' is the only exception to date, reusing his ''T3'' attire), and quite drastically. Even in his ''Soulcalibur'' appearances, where he conforms to a samurai-influenced aesthetic, does Yoshimitsu look wildly different between games.

* In ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'', they show a picture of Jean-Luc Picard when he was young, and for some reason, he was bald, despite the fact that his balding had everything to do with his age, as previously shown in the show. This also makes the villain quite baffling. However, Creator/PatrickStewart himself really ''had'' lost his hair by this age, really muddling things.
** One handwave that swims dangerously close to being a VoodooShark is the fact that both the picture and Shinzon have stubble, indicating both the young Picard and his clone shaved their heads on purpose. Other flashback Picards with hair had just let it grow back.
