* Neither Creator/AkiraToriyama nor his fans liked ''Anime/DragonBallGT''. To the fans' relief, Akira made the discontinuity official by making [[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods two]] [[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF movies]] that [[{{Retcon}} retconned]] it out of [[{{Canon}} canon]] and into AlternateContinuity.

** ''The Lion King 1/2'' (itself of debatable canonicity) seems to declare discontinuity on the ''WesternAnimation/TimonAndPumbaa'' TV series, since it featured a completely different version of Timon and Pumbaa's youth than featured in the movie.

* Likewise, the ''Conspiracy'' mini-series strongly implied that the rise of superhumans during UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}} was a deliberate conspiracy masterminded by a shadowy government cadre known as Control. This has never been mentioned again, and was later contradicted by the events shown in MattFraction's ''ComicBook/TheDefenders'' run.

* The ComicBook/DoomPatrol has had multiple cases of this:
** John Byrne rebooted the entire franchise with his run, and nothing before is even remotely canon. Fan reception was ''not'' positive, to say the least, which led to...
** John Byrne's run specifically not being considered canon by the subsequent creative teams, but everything ''it'' retconned out is indeed still canon. Keith Giffen's run even brings back Crazy Jane from the Grant Morrison run, who didn't exist in the Byrne run. Unfortunately...
** The ComicBook/New52 reboot seemed to have retconned the team out of existence. Niles Caulder shows up in ''The Ravagers'' ''severely'' de-aged and Danny the Street is, well, a street again instead of a planet with no explanation as to why. Similarly, Beast Boy's origin is completely changed and no longer involves him being adopted by Mento and Elasti-Girl of the Doom Patrol. ''However''...
** The Doom Patrol, ''including Niles Caulder'' later appear in Geoff Johns' ''Justice League'' run and ''Forever Evil''. ''League'' featured an older Niles Caulder than the one in ''Ravagers'', and he is indeed in charge of the Doom Patrol. However, fan reaction to the portrayal of the team was... mixed, to say the least, Caulder was portrayed as an absolute bully to the team, whereas he was previously a manipulator who at least ''pretended'' that he cared about them and their feelings. Eventually, this version would be regarded as not canon as well, with...
** Gerard Way's Doom Patrol, the debut title of the ComicBook/YoungAnimal imprint! At first, it seemed like Way's DP would be a complete ContinuityReboot, in a similar vein to Byrne's. However, it is later revealed that everything except the Byrne and New 52 stuff is canon, as the characters make specific reference to events from the Grant Morrison and Keith Giffen runs.

* When former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested [[note]]later convicted[[/note]] on charges of sexually molesting teenage boys, students at Penn State painted him out of a mural showing all the present and past coaches of the football team. His image was replaced with a blue ribbon, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_awareness_ribbons awareness ribbon]] for child abuse. Even moreso, the NCAA erased '''every''' Penn State football victory from 1998-2011 as part of the punishment for covering up the scandal for so long.
* From 1912 to 1948 the UsefulNotes/OlympicGames used to feature art competitions which was considered official and with their own medals. Now the IOC considered those events unofficial and the medals won aren't included in the IOC official database.
* After Melky Cabrera was supposed for Performance-Enhancing Drugs, the San Francisco Giants acted like he didn't exist, excluding him from the postseason roster and even not giving him a World Series ring.
* Similarly, Lance Armstrong's 7 Tour de France titles were stripped after he was found to have used [=PEDs=].
* The University of Nebraska-Lincoln football program holds the [=NCAA=] record for most consecutive home-game sellouts (the streak started in 1962, and is still running as of 2016). When the university celebrated the 300th consecutive sellout game in September 2009, they very carefully did ''not'' invite former athletic director Steve Pederson or former head coach Bill Callahan, the two men "credited" with almost ruining the football program and bringing the streak to an end.

* Every time the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' license is given to a different comic book company, the previous company's books get tossed into the Discontinuity bin. Though, in Creator/DCComics[='=] case, they had their previous comics tossed out while ''still holding the license'', thanks to Paramount demanding a reworking of the terms of the license so that they could [[ExecutiveMeddling exert more creative control]] over the comics.

* Music/TheDoors have never reissued their two post-Morrison albums, ''Other Voices'' and ''Full Circle'', even in the supposed ''Complete Studio Recordings'' boxed set. These have allegedly only seen CD release in Russia, and those discs are very likely unauthorized. Both albums eventually became available on iTunes.
