** Lennier also forgets that there is a worker caste as well. It's in the same episode as well (Grail) and he's actually the one who first says that there's two castes (it's actually the same conversation DeLenn is in). No mention of workers at all. Apparently forgetfulness is contagious?

* The pilot episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' stated that all jobs were selected for everyone by the government, everyone had "job chips" implanted in their hands, and leaving your job was [[DisproportionateRetribution punishable by death]]. Nowadays, the job chips seems to function mostly as a form of ID, with everyone taking the job they want.

** In ''A New Hope'', R2-D2 is searching for his "former owner", Obiwan Kenobi -- a lie he tells because Princess Leia had sent him to find Kenobi. When they find him: "I don't recall ever owning a droid. Very interesting." Then Leia's recording says that she has put information "vital to the rebellion" on this "R2 unit". In the backstory to ''A New Hope'', R2-D2 is never supposed to have the history he wound up having in the prequel trilogy, with Obiwan and Anakin. (Then when Luke prepares to depart to destroy the Death Star, a technician suggests replacing the R2 unit, as this one seemed rather beat up.)

** In the pilot Bender was also shown to be a good and moral robot, who only "went bad" after his programming got scrambled by electricity from a burst lightbulb. Later it's rather clear that he's always been his normal violent and klepto self from the remained of the show, and that Mom seemingly programs all bending units in that manner - as seen in the episode ''Mother's Day'' when the "see through the eyes of a bending unit" highlight potential theft and exploitation targets.

** 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, and Yoda seems to focus entirely on foundational training for the youngest students. More significantly, Obi-Wan seems to be implying in ''Jedi'' that it was his [[{{Pride}} hubris]] in believing that he could train Anakin as a Jedi despite lacking Yoda's greater experience and wisdom that caused Anakin to fall to the Dark Side; the prequel trilogy established the idea of the MasterApprenticeChain where a Jedi Knight adopts and trains a Padawan as the normal way of things (and Obi-Wan isn't portrayed as a particularly bad teacher in any meaningful way), making Obi-Wan not really responsible for Anakin's fall at all.

Something that was forbidden of Jedi and was ultimately responsible for his fall.



*** There's also the fact that Leia explicitly says she remembers what her biological mother was like in ''Return'', only for it to be revealed in ''Revenge'' that Padme died giving birth to the twins.

*** There's also the fact that Leia explicitly says she remembers what her biological mother was like in ''Return'', only for it to be revealed in ''Revenge'' that Padme died giving birth to the twins. Of course as a Force sensitive it's entirely possible that Force children have a much greater connection, and even memory, of their mother from within the room. Though that doesn't explain the disparity of Leia remembering her and Luke not.

* ''ComicBook/TheTransformers'' was originally set in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, much like various other licensed comics Marvel had at the time. Some Marvel characters cameoed in early issues and the Savage Land played a major role in the backstory. Soon, however, Marvel and Hasbro decided to split ''Transformers'' off into it's own reality to prevent legal and continuity headaches. The setting shifted, semi-quietly, from established superhero universe to 'Earth never had contact with extranormal beings or objects until the Transformers showed up'. This led to an amusing situation where Franchise/SpiderMan was [[http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Peter_Parker_(Earth-91274) turned into a living paradox]]. To elaborate; Spider-Man made a guest appearance in the third issue of ''Transformers'' and naturally makes references to other Marvel characters and events. Once the comic underwent Continuity Drift it caused Spidey to look utterly delusional, as he keeps referring to people that don't exist and events that never happened.

** Another early episode had Bender joining a robot religion led by Preacher Bot and swearing off alcohol for the religiously acceptable synthetic oil. And yet the very first episode established that alcohol is ''necessary'' for a robot to function (there's even a legal limit that robots have to be above), and Preacher Bot is even seen handing out alcohol to homeless robots in the first ChristmasEpisode. This is never addressed.

* In the earliest episodes of ''{{Bones}}'', Brennen's ex-husband was introduced for a scene and it was implied their divorce was recent; this was in keeping with the books, where her ex-husband was mentioned frequently and occasionally appeared. After Brennen's [[CharacterizationMarchesOn characterisation marched on]] and she became a walking example of Asperger's clichés, mentions of her previous marriage were quietly dropped.

* A purely aesthetic one, but still noteworthy mistake in ''Manga/OnePiece''. Robin, who is 28 at her introduction, got her first bounty when she was 8, and when some Marines recognize her, we see the bounty poster with a picture of her 8-year-old self in an ImagineSpot. On the picture, she has almost the exact same face as her adult self (though her nose is smaller and her hair shorter). The only thing that really gives her off as a kid is that she has the head-to-body-proportions of a young child. 200 chapters later, we get to see a long flashback with 8-year-old Robin. Now she is suddenly drawn with a more childlike and cuter face (bigger, rounder eyes and a different nose) which doesn't really look like her bounty poster picture. Later in the flashback, her bounty poster is issued and it does have her more mature-looking face on the photography, though outside of the poster she still has her cute child face. One would almost think the Marines traveled to the future, took a picture of her 28-year-old face and photoshopped it on her 8-year-old body...
** Some of the exposition about the setting at the start of the series seems to be at odds with how things are portrayed later. The Grand Line is described as being hell-on-earth. While it is dangerous, it also seems to contain the majority of the world's population, and doesn't come off as the pirate's graveyard characters usually described it as. When the second half of the Grand Line, the New World, is introduced, it's described pretty similarly to how the whole Grand Line was portrayed before the characters actually got there. Several characters also treat Devil Fruits as nothing more than myths, but the vast majority of the most famous people in the world have eaten a Devil Fruit, which makes it hard to believe that their existence would be in dispute.
