* Much of Franchise/{{LEGO}} ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'''s early media got contradicted, at times very early on, due to its inconsistent nature. This is because originally, LEGO didn't know that the line would be one of their {{long runner}}s, and the line was one of their first full-blown multimedia franchises, so its continuity had a rough start.

* While the existence of past Keyblade wielders was always a plot point in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'', Keyblades themselves were treated as though they were rare and special. By ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', this is no longer the case, with one character even lampshading that "it seems like everyone has one of those things these days". Similarly, the original game claims that the Keyblade chooses its master, but ''Birth by Sleep'' shows that people become Keyblade wielders because other Keyblade wielders choose them as successors and make them undertake a rite of passage.

** Also, the [[Manga/YuGiOh original manga]] was clearly not thought through all the way until later on, as earlier chapters have the implied backstory and nature of "the Shadow Games" as much different from what they would later be presented as.

** Certain details introduced early in the series are drifted into something else by the time the manga ends. Rukia originally states that Shinigami kill Hollows from behind to avoid seeing their human faces, but when Shinigami finally enter the story, most Shinigami never kill Hollows that way. Shinigami were designed before the military structure was decided upon, so Ukitake's first appearance doesn't include a captain's haori. When Byakuya and Renji first appear, there's still no captain's haori, Renji implies he's some kind of retainer to the Kuchiki household, and he refers to Byakuya by a different term of respect than "captain". When Soul Society is first shown in the manga, to follow Rukia's imprisonment, the military structure has been created. Also, Uryuu originally thought he was the Last Quincy and wearing an old-fashioned uniform until his father chastised him for misusing the "Last Quincy" title, but the final arc strongly implies that Uryuu has known about the Vandenreich from a young age because Souken told him about them, and makes it clear that the Vandenreich uniform is the original - not new - uniform.

Kubo came up with the final arc in the latter half of the Soul Society arc.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Aizen seems to be strangely misinformed about his Arrancar followers, labeling Grimmjow's posse "gillians" when they had, in fact been adjucha before being turned.
** Urahara likewise seems curiously ignorant with regards to the origins, goals, and membership of the Vizards, given the degree to which their backstories are intertwined with his own.
** Numerous details introduced early in the series were quietly dropped after the GenreShift to a more action-oriented series. Rukia claims that Shinigami kill Hollows from behind so that they won't see their human faces as they dissolve, but no Shinigami are ever seen doing that.

** Kubo knew how the Soul Society and final arcs would go, but wasn't so sure about the middle, so some of the Arrancar development occurred as he was writing the Arrancar Arc. It also experienced ExecutiveMeddling to extend the storylines because the Arrancar were unexpectedly popular with the readers. As a result, Aizen's knowledge of his Arrancar subordinates seem unusually shaky; he initially describes Grimmjow's posse as "Gillians" when they're mostly Adjuchas, with only one Gillian in the group. Urahara also seems to be initially shaky on who the Visoreds
are ever seen doing that.and where they come from, but it's later revealed his history is intimately connected to them as they were all exiled from Soul Society together.

** Numerous details introduced early in the series were quietly dropped after the GenreShift to a more action-oriented series. Rukia claims that Shinigami kill Hollows from behind so that they won't see their human faces as they dissolve, but no Shinigami are ever seen doing that. A method of tracking people using things called Spirit Ribbons is also never seen again after the initial arc, with all of the characters tracking each other using only their spiritual power. In fact, the afterlife aspect of the series is often inconsequential, with various aspects of it (the reincarnation cycle, who hollows were before they changed into hollows, the possibility of Shinigami having once been humans themselves, and Hell) remaining unexplored in favor of battles between the various spiritual factions.

** Also, several cliffhanger moments picked back up with a character repeating the final few lines of the past chapter/episode/commercial break, only different. One such example of a sentence that started "Shinigami and a..." was changed to "Human and a..." a week later. This one sentence sent the fan speculation wild in the intervening week, as the speculated ending "Shinigami and a... Hollow" would be much more explanatory, but also a VoodooShark [[note]]It would explain Ichigo's powers, but it would also suggest his mom had some sort of Hollow lineage/power[[/note]], while the "actual" sentence "Human and a... Shinigami" explains more or less ''nothing''.
*** Blood War spoiler:[[spoiler: Apparently, Ichigo's mother was a ''Quincy''. This does give her ample opportunity to be attacked by Hollows, and might even have been planned in advance, given past revelations about Isshin and Ryuuken]].

** Whether "Time Lord" is the name of the race from Galifrey or a subset of them has drifted in and out over time. The classic series originally implied that they were all Time Lords, and then later episodes introduced Galifreyans who were pure HumanAliens (including primitive cultures living on the same planet). The revived series reverted to using it as the name of the race until the Twelth Doctor's run started making the distinction again, and even then the term is used to refer to both the few individuals with the rank and also the culture in general.

** Obi-Wan says in the same instance in ''Return of the Jedi'' that his chief failing was thinking he could train Anakin as well as Yoda. This is nowhere apparent in the prequels and the one pushing for Anakin being trained is Qui-Gon. Obi-Wan merely trains Anakin as a final favor to him.

** It is stated by many background materials that Artoo has never had his memory erased, unlike Threepio. George Lucas has gone so far as to claim that the entire film saga has an unseen FramingDevice wherein Artoo is recounting the events to an alien race after the fact. However, especially given Artoo's extensive involvement in the prequels, this creates the problem of him never demonstrating any knowledge of important background that he ''really'' ought to be telling Luke about. Like the fact that he knew Anakin, Padme and Obi-Wan for ''years'' and could have given a detailed account of everything that led to Luke's life working out the way that it had!
