* The WWF Light Heavyweight Title was created in 1981 when Perro Aguayo defeated Gran Hamada and defended almost exclusively in Japan (primarily Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling) and in Mexico (Primarily Lucha Libre Internacional). In 1997, the WWF took the belt back and decided to ignore sixteen years of history, proclaiming Wrestling/TAKAMichinoku to be the first champion.

* After Wrestling/{{ECW}} betrayed the Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance, the NWA stripped Wrestling/ShaneDouglas of their World Heavyweight Championship belt and leaned on Wrestling/SmokeyMountainWrestling, who put the belt on Wrestling/ChrisCandido. After the NWA got back on its feet though, it disregarded Candido's reign in favor of Dan The Beast Severn.

* While not entirely declaring them non-canonical, Yoshio Sakamoto said that he did not take the plots of the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy'' games into consideration in the making of ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM''. This leads to some weirdness when Samus mentions that this is the first time she's undertaken a mission alongside the Federation when she already did that in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption''. However, these are minor plot holes in a series riddled with them. The fact that the ''Prime'' sub-series was American-made and [[GaidenGame told its own story instead of furthering the plot]] of the Japanese games may have had something to do with this.

** Subverted for "Uptown Girl". He also wrote it for an ex-wife, Christie Brinkley, but the reason he stopped performing it is because he feels he can no longer pull off the [[Music/Frankie ValliAndTheFourSeasons Frankie Valli]]-style falsetto the song requires. He remains friends with Brinkley, and he usually only performs the song in concert (in a lower key) when she's in the audience.

* ''[[Creator/OrsonScottCard The Worthing Saga]]'' has multiple levels. The actual "canon" consists primarily of the full-length novel. The stories included in the back of a later edition came first, but Card didn't have them on hand when writing the novel, so a lot of the details differ, and he essentially made them an AlternateUniverse. The stories not included are all [[OldShame so awful]] that he wouldn't even discuss them.

** This seems to be the effect of the past ''two hundred fifty one issues'' following the end of ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide'' and its CosmicRetcon ending. WordOfGod states that, yes, those issues ''did'' happen, but it's obvious that they won't have any major standing in the new comics.

*** WordOfGod also stated that the ''Sonic Underground'' and ''Sonic X'' continuities were also erased by the same event.

* ''Film/{{Predators}}'' dismisses the ''Film/AlienVsPredator'' movies and instead it acts as a sequel to [[Film/{{Predator}} the original film]] and [[Film/{{Predator 2}} the sequel]] (while the events of ''Predator 2'' weren't directly mentioned in ''Predators'', neither was ''2'' said to not be canonical).
* In the same vein, ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'' pretty clearly eliminates the ''Film/AlienVsPredator'' movies out of ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'''s canon by stating that Weyland Industries was founded in 2012 by Peter Weyland, rather than Charles Bishop Weyland, who in the AVP films had already had a successful business by 2004.

* 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.
