** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'':
*** This series adapts the basic events of the canon movies ''Battle of Gods'' and ''Resurrection F'', but with some minor changes and tweaks to the storyline. Both versions are canon, with the version that is the "true" canon being left up to fan preference, as none of the changes have any long-lasting impact on the storyline.
** ''Super'' also counts certain parts of anime {{Filler}} as canon, despite being an official continuation of the manga.


Added DiffLines:

** The 2016 movie is primarily a continuation of the original manga, but also takes a few cues from the second series anime.

** WordOfGod states that ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' is the canon depiction of the events of Space War 1; on the other hand, ''Anime/MacrossDoYouRememberLove'' is an in-universe movie and dramatizes the events seen in the TV series. This raises some questions because later ''Macross'' series take many elements such as the uniforms and the design of the SDF-1 Macross from ''DYRL'' instead of the original show, to the point where in ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}, one character from the original series, Exsedol Folmo, had his character design officially changed from the TV show's small grey-faced version to ''DYRL''[='s=] serious big-brained green-faced version.

* The sequels to ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' do this.

** ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' probably takes the cake, and is what really brought this out from Kawamori. With multiple mangas, a series, movies, and novelizations (''all'' of which have very different interpretations of events) this is finally what it came down to. Kind of a TakeThat at how most media, while based on a real story, often take ArtisticLicense. That is, if you believe him.
*** It goes even further than that in Macross Frontier's TV version: They are doing a Broad Strokes ''movie adaptation'' of the events from Macross Zero as part of the impetus that kickstarts Ranka's idol career.

* The various ''Franchise/MyLittlePonyGeneration4'' media have been described as having this, as the books, comics and cartoons don't necessary share strict canon. Pretty much necessary for a franchise with multiple writers and a general aversion to ExecutiveMeddling.

* The various ''Franchise/MyLittlePonyGeneration4'' media have been described as having this, as the books, comics and cartoons don't necessary share strict canon. The show trumps everything else, and the show's writing staff may personally veto any comic plotline that IDW's writers want to put out, but otherwise there's no real collaboration. Pretty much necessary for a franchise with multiple writers and a general aversion to ExecutiveMeddling.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' is treated as this in ''Film/Deadpool2016''. The two movies clearly take place in separate continuities, but there are also enough obvious parallels between the two of them that it can be assumed that at least ''some'' of the events of ''X-Men Origins'' still happened in Deadpool's past. Deadpool is still played by Creator/RyanReynolds, he definitely lives in the same universe as the X-Men, he has definitely met Wolverine, he has enough of a history with the X-Men that he's been invited to join the team numerous times, and he spent several years [[NoodleIncident performing covert operations for a Special Forces team]] prior to the events of the movie. Deadpool ''definitely'' never had his mouth sewed shut by Weapon X, but he could conceivably have served with Wolverine and the rest of Team X during his time in the Special Forces. Note that the superhuman training program in ''Deadpool'' is never explicitly called "Weapon X" [[note]] Though a few writers and cast members ''have'' called it that in interviews [[/note]], so it technically doesn't contradict the detail about Deadpool first being recruited into Weapon X in the 1970s.

** For instance, CaptainAmerica changed his name to Nomad in the 70's out of disgust over incidents involving UsefulNotes/RichardNixon. A later Comicbook/NewAvengers issue referenced this, but made the reasoning behind Steve's disillusionment much more vague since by now, Steve would have still been [[HumanPopsicle frozen]] during the 70's.

* According to WordOfGod, the ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fanfic ''Fanfic/NarutoTheSecretSongsOfTheNinja'' takes this approach to the Naruto canon post-TimeSkip, since this was the point where the author considers the major {{Retcon}}s to start majorly reshaping the story (largely in ways he didn't like). As a result, you can't count on anything from after the TimeSkip being canon in the fic- perhaps most notably, neither Jinchuuriki nor the idea of a series of 'tailed beasts' don't exist, with the Kyuubi and the Shukaku both being separate, unrelated demonic monsters (as they clearly were back when Gaara was introduced in the original Chuunin Exam arc).
