Added DiffLines:

* When ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' is referenced in spin-offs, it's pretty certain the Fighter was a party member. Maybe the only party member.


Added DiffLines:

* The ''VideoGame/UltimaOnline'' intro has the Stranger dressed as the Avatar, similar to his appearance in ''VideoGame/UltimaIX''. This ignores the Stranger not becoming the Avatar until ''VideoGame/UltimaIV'', and also ignores the Avatar's customized appearance in some games.

Added DiffLines:

* The Joe Oriolo WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat cartoons have this kind of light continuity going on in them, with some episodes bridging directly between each other (i.e. "Do It Yourself Monster Book" ends with Felix on a raft in the ocean, which is where we find him next in the following episode, "Blubberino the Whale"). Poindexter's UFO, made in "The Flying Saucer" (one of his first appearances), pops up several times throughout the early episodes. But no episodes directly reference a past event, and some episodes fall into outright NegativeContinuity (for example, there is no reason Professor should have trusted Master Cylinder with Poindexter in "Venus and the Master Cylinder", when his first appearance "Master Cylinder, King of the Moon" showed him being outright hostile to both of them. The reason for this is because the episodes were very quickly written (the shows grueling schedule forced to put out three new episodes per week, and they were given mere ''hours'' to write the scripts) and also because the episodes were designed so that stations could either air them as standalone episodes, or air them as chapters that would form a complete "story" when aired in proper order.

* Steven Brust's ''Phoenix Guard'' books are [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis presented as]] a series of historical fiction novels written by a character in Brust's ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'' universe. The events described in the books are fictionalized accounts of events that did happen in ''Dragaera''. In the Vlad Taltos novels, the eponymous hero sometimes learns things that contradict things that are described in the ''Phoenix Guard'' books.

* When {{Creator/Bungie}} Studios was still in charge of ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', they outright said that any new information overrides previously given information, with the occasional lapse for artistic license. The reprints of the [[Literature/HaloTheFallOfReach first]] [[Literature/HaloTheFlood three]] [[Literature/HaloFirstStrike novels]] actually retconned some of their stories' details to make them fit better with later canon. More generally, this trope is often happens in works or montage sequences set in the "past", which often depict equipment that didn't even exist by that point. While Creator/ThreeFourThreeIndustries, the current studio in charge, has generally adopted Bungie's stance, they've put a little more effort into providing canonical explanations for apparent discrepancies.

* {{Creator/Bungie}} Studios of ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' fame has said outright that any new information overrides previously given information, with the occasional lapse for artistic license. This is often shown in works depicting montages of the war or Spartans, usually depicting tech or armor that didn't even exist by that point. Some of the republished novels try to adjust to the new continuity by retconning some details in their stories.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Roleplay/MahouMUSH'' takes this approach to adapting canon plotlines to the game, the setting of which is [[CanonWelding an amalgamation of a number of magical girl shows]] incorporated into a single setting. The general concept of the story arcs as they are depicted in their source material is retained, but the specifics of how they occur in-game are likely to be quite different, particularly when members of other casts start getting involved.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has most of its books written to allow virtually any set of choices from the games to be considered "canon". Fortunately, given its CanonDiscontinuity setting, the third game did the same to the [[TheyJustDidntCare near-universally reviled]] ''Literature/MassEffectDeception'', factoring in some of the events but avoiding any reference to [[ThrowingOffTheDisability growing out of autism]] or the many, ''many'' lore issues.

* ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' coexists only very loosely with ''Film/AngryVideoGameNerdTheMovie'' .
** The movie follows up a hint in episode 101 that the Nerd would finally review the infamous ''[[VideoGame/ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T.]]'' on Atari 2600, but his reasons for doing so don't quite line up; in the show, people have been demanding it for years simply because it's such a notorious game, but in the movie, it's because a fictional company is releasing an intentionally bad sequel.
** For copyright reasons, the actual ''E.T.'' game couldn't be used for the movie, so a [[BlandNameProduct generic stand-in]] called ''Eee Tee'' was used instead. This creates a weird disconnect because the real game is featured so often in the show.
