* The Franchise/{{Micronauts}} still occasionally appear in Creator/MarvelComics as "The Microns". Since a large portion of the characters were based on licensed toys, those characters and past situations involving them are left unstated. The reappearance of the remaining characters is left unexplained since the last episode of ''Micronauts: The New Voyages'' gave effective closure for the characters (they died). Readers generally assume that since the Marvel Universe is composed of alternate realities, these characters are not resurrected versions of the ones in the 1979-1986 comics but alternate versions of the characters who may still pass as the originals on Earth.

* ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' appears to share the same basic concept of the first three films (Max is a former cop and his family were murdered), but according to WordOfGod is not in exactly the same continuity as them.

If you've seen the original movies, the discrepancies are pretty obvious: Max still has his V-8 Interceptor in the opening scene (he lost it in ''Film/TheRoadWarrior'', and it was supposedly the last of its kind), there are apparently multiple flourishing post-apocalyptic civilizations in Australia (the original ''Film/MadMax'' took place JustBeforeTheEnd), and Max's deceased child was apparently a young girl rather than an infant boy.

** ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' follow the events of the first two films, but near the end, [[spoiler: "Pops" becomes [[Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines T-X]] after he CameBackStrong from the FinalBattle]].

* ''WesternAnimation/NextAvengersHeroesOfTomorrow'' can be seen as a Broad Strokes sequel to the ''ComicBook/UltimateAvengers'' movie, as ComicBook/BlackWidow is stated to have been a founding member of the team and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's wife (the two dated in the ''Ultimate'' movies, but not the comics) and ComicBook/TheWasp's son appears to be Asian (the UltimateMarvel version of Wasp is Asian as opposed to white). However, other than that, there are some inconsistencies, such as the Avengers being seen wearing their classic costumes in Flashbacks rather than their Ultimate outfits, as well as the fact that Giant-Man (the father of Wasp's son) ''died'' in the second ''Ultimate Avengers'' movie.

* ''VideoGame/Doom2016'' states that the events of the ''Doom'', ''Doom II'', and ''Doom 64'' more or less happened as presented, [[spoiler: with the notable exception that the Doom Marine originally belonged to a completely different world called "Argent D'nur".]]

* ''Film/FreddyVsJason'': The movie takes this approach to both franchise's canons to make the match-up between its two villains possible. For ''[[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Nightmare]]'', Springwood was basically destroyed by [[Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare the chronologically last movie]] and Freddy killed off (''[[Film/WesCravensNewNightmare New Nightmare]]'' doesn't count as it's a RealWorldEpisode plot). For ''[[Franchise/FridayThe13th Friday]]'', Jason was either [[Film/JasonGoesToHellTheFinalFriday dragged off to hell after his body was blown up by the FBI]] or [[Film/JasonX he was kept and cryogenically frozen and wound up in space]]. Instead, Springwood found a way to block off Freddy's access to their kids by shutting the whole thing up and Jason is buried somewhere in the woods around Camp Crystal Lake after his last outing (?). Also, Lori's house is implied to be the same house that Nancy lived in, and her mother was killed in a similar way to Nancy's mom, so the implication is that Lori and her friends were the first generation of teens previously affected by Freddy.

** When Timothy Dalton took over the role of Bond: as he was about twenty years younger than Roger Moore, the events of the previous films (which had all been quite consistent up to then) were acknowledged to be canon in Broad Strokes but assumed to have occurred more recently than the 1960s.

* ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' is mostly treated as CanonDiscontinuity in ''Film/TheWolverine'' (for starters, the opening has Logan in World War II alone instead of accompanied by half-brother Sabretooth), except for some examples listed in ContinuityNod.
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' explicitly contradicts elements from ''Origins: Wolverine'', and WordOfGod is that they were simply treating the movie as CanonDiscontinuity. Despite this, a brief {{Flashback}} to the events of the film (Sabretooth crushing Logan's bone claws) is seen when the young Xavier reads Logan's mind. This presumably means at least ''some'' of that movie still happened.

** ''X-Men Origins: Wolverine'' 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.

** As the comic's reboot continued on, they have revealed a few things about those games and how they relate to the new universe, with Bunnie and Antoine mentioning they were at Station Square when Perfect Chaos attacked in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', Knuckles remembering Snively's involvement in ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', and Breezie the Hedgehog being involved in the GameGear version of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' as well as ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes''.

* This applied to the first season of ''Roleplay/TheMassiveMultiFandomRPG'' in the subsequent installments, in part because it was sillier than the other ones ([[OldShame to the point where some players and GM's were embarrassed by it]]), in part because [[MissingEpisode it got deleted]]. As a result, while its events did happen canonically (more or less), the exact details are made quite vague. For instance, even if a character had participated in Season 1, you could join one of the later seasons with this character while pretending they had never appeared before.
This list shows the last 10 events of 537. Show all.
