* According to WordOfGod the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' episodes set in the future are not canonical, as they portray Kevin as an unrepentant villain, but in ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]]'', he is a [[HeelFaceTurn redeemed good guy]]. Also, the pop-up edition of the episode "Goodbye And Good Riddance" states that the episode is not canonical and that the real story of Ben's return to Bellwood is the live action film ''[[Film/Ben10RaceAgainstTime Race Against Time]]''. However, the ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'' episode "Ben 10,000 Returns" made canonical inconsistent events an alternate universe, including ''Race Against Time'' and the villain Kevin future.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Two episodes of the Best Wishes saga involving Team Rocket fighting Team Plasma [[TooSoon that were cancelled due to the 2011 tsunami and earthquake]] became non-canonical come the Episode N arc, which treats things as if Ash and co. and Team Rocket never met Team Plasma before their actual debut episode.

** The 20th movie, ''I Choose You'', is effectively this in regards to the rest of the series, as it makes several changes to Ash's journey through Kanto. Notable examples include Brock and Misty not traveling with him, Erika being the third Gym Leader he faced rather than the fifth, Charmander's original trainer being a new character named Cross rather than Damion, and Ash seeing [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl 4th]] and [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon 7th]] Generation Pokémon. In short, this should be seen as an AlternateContinuity to the Kanto saga.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheIdolmaster2'' appears to ignore the events of ''Idolmaster SP'', as it makes no reference of Hibiki and Takane having been part of 961 and never mentions Miki having joined 961 either. The same game also ignores the Awakened Miki storyline from the XBox360 game, as Miki not only still dyes her hair blonde, but has also grown it out some more.
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilGaiden'', the GameBoyColor installment in the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series, has been ignored by every other game in the series.

** It's an element rather than a whole episode, but ''[[Recap/StarTrekS3E24TurnaboutIntruder Turnabout Intruder]]'', the final episode of the original series, stated that [[SocietyMarchesOn women can't be starship captains]]. [[UnfortunateImplications For obvious reasons]] pretty much the entire rest of the franchise has thrown this rule out the window, including ''Enterprise'' (which was set before the original series).
** In a similar way, another element that has been disregarded by the rest of the series is that ''[[Recap/StarTrekS1E14BalanceOfTerror Balance of Terror]]'' stated that the Romulans [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale did not have warp drive at the time]]. Like the above example, the rest of the series, including ''Enterprise'', ignores this.

* ''ComicBook/SpiderMan2099'' Vol. 2 disregards everything that happened in Vol. 1 after Creator/PeterDavid left. Given the way TimeTravel works in the Marvel Multiverse, fans are atyempting to HandWave it by declaring it an AlternateUniverse, but there has been no WordOfGod on that point thus far.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'', the [[{{Whatevermancy}} magic school]] of Deletionism (a TakeThat to TheOtherWiki) was replaced by "{{Retconjuration}}" in order to explain how a change was retroactively made to a character's special ability. Therefore, Deletionism has never existed.

* ''VideoGame/HotelMario'' for the CD-i is disregarded by fans, critics and Nintendo developers alike. Since the canon in ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' is otherwise very loose and flexible (after all, despite ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' being AllJustADream and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' being a stage play, both are nowadays deeply rooted within the lore and history of the series), the case of ''Hotel Mario'' is unique in its kind: It's not referenced ''at all'' in the Nintendo-produced games, MythologyGag or otherwise.

** Every single Cheapquel (with the exception of Lilo & Stitch's sequels) were declared non-canon by John Lasseter, undoing the above discontinuity.

* ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' has been in debate on whether it is canonical to ''Anime/DragonBall'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' as there are many people who didn't like the series. The new series ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', the first ''Dragon Ball'' show covering new material since ''GT'', is expected by many to ignore this story in favor of one that ties into ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF''.
