* Thanks to an UpdatedRerelease, ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Original Generation}}s'' resets continuity with the inclusion of new characters and scenarios not seen in the original GameBoyAdvance incarnations, and thanks to Banpresto rectifying a massive {{flanderization}} of a certain villainous character, [=OGs=] allowed ''Original Generation Gaiden'' to occur, wherein said character [[spoiler:pulls a massive, well-deserved HeelFaceTurn to help the heroes during their times of woe.]]

* ''Backyard Baseball 2007'' is essentially a reboot of the [[BackyardSports series]], even though the writers do not say so. Several characters have been removed and [[ReplacementScrappy replaced with more annoying characters]], and the ones left in have a new backstory (with a few exceptions).

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': The [[TheMovie cinematic]] [[GrandFinale series finale]] fell in with the regular continuity of both the radio and television versions of the series. However, it was a partial reboot as it erased the events of the final television season (which featured Miss Brooks working at a private elementary school in California, a plot development '''not''' occurring in the concurrent radio series). The movie began by retelling Miss Brooks' initial arrival in Madison. On the other hand, the characters (and actors!) were the same as on the radio and television series. [[spoiler: The movie ends with Miss Brooks achieving her SeriesGoal, marrying Mr. Boynton and living HappilyEverAfter.]]

* In terms of the series continuity itself, while it doesn't start itself over, "Fairly Odd Baby", debuting after the series was UnCanceled, might be this to ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', as no events established prior to it, such as those of the movies, are brought up, and prior events are retconned by later episodes [[note]]The biggest cases being "Let Sleeper Dogs Lie" ignoring "The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker" and the [[Film/AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner three]] [[Film/AFairlyOddChristmas live-action]] [[Film/AFairlyOddSummer movies]] doing their best to ignore the ending to ''WesternAnimation/ChannelChasers''.[[/note]].
** However it was averted in "Timmy's Secret Wish".

* Following the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'', the ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' films were rebooted in 2012 with ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'', just five years after ''Film/SpiderMan3''. Then, after ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2''was made in 2014, [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries this continuity]] was abandoned and the character was rebooted again: From here on, Spider-Man would be incorporated into the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, first appearing as a supporting character in 2016's ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' before getting his first MCU solo film in 2017's ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' is neither in continuity with the comics or the original TV series (or the shared universe thereof created through CanonWelding by Boom! Studios' comic line, for that matter), instead creating its own universe.

* ''Webcomic/CurseQuest'': Curse Quest rebooted in 2015. The original story established that all the main characters already knew each other, but the reboot seems to move the timeline back as the group is currently missing two of the original main cast. The character of Mogarth has considerably changed personality.

* The new ''Series/BionicWoman'' is an example of a reboot which was not well-received. Which was NBC's fault for replacing the original writing staff with writers from ''FridayNightLights''. Because after all, female cyborgs and Texas high school football are EXACTLY alike. There never was much chance they could do it right, because doing it right requires ignoring some of the accepted conventions of "action-adventure TV" in today's climate. To be fair, part of the problem was the producers had the rights to the title Bionic Woman, the name Jaime Sommers, the term bionics, ''and that was pretty much it.'' As a result they had no choice but to reboot the continuity and try to put a show together without Steve Austin or Oscar Goldman.
