* When writing the novel of ''The Worthing Saga'', Creator/OrsonScottCard didn't have access to his original short stories, and while he did his best to recreate their plots from memory, upon finding the stories again he decided the novel had become too different to fit with them again. Later editions, however, include the best stories in the back of the book as an AlternateContinuity.

Added DiffLines:

* The Frogwares ''Sherlock Holmes'' adventure games have always existed in an ambiguous state as far as a series canon goes: the different games often included nods to one another, but they shared no significant continuity or chronology, included a frequently shifting voice cast for Holmes and Watson, and were often very different in tone and style from one another. However, the release in 2016 of the eighth game, ''Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter'', confirmed that at least the previous two games had taken place in the same universe, and that a conscious effort had been made to distinguish this Holmes as "new", with a new voice actor and much [[AgeLift younger-looking]] character models for him and Watson. Whether this means the first five games in the series were also canonically connected is less clear, but the announcement of the deliberate reboot is the first official word on the subject at all from the developers.
* ''VideoGame/TheSims4'' is the first main entry in the series not to have the stories of its pre-made characters take place in the same universe as [[VideoGame/TheSims the original game]] (to which ''VideoGame/TheSims2'' was a sequel and ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' was a prequel). Instead, a selection of the most popular characters from across the franchise have been drawn together in what's officially being called an AlternateUniverse, regardless of their position in the timeline of the original canon. This was probably done to combat the increasing ContinuitySnarl that the series had been experiencing, especially since the intended focus of the games is on the player's own creations rather than the canonical characters.

* The 2006 version of ''Film/ThePinkPanther'' starring Creator/SteveMartin as Inspector Clouseau starts with a clean slate and only two characters held over from the original series (Clouseau and Dreyfus). Its 2009 sequel is simply titled ''The Pink Panther 2'', avoiding the original series' IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming.

** This is going to be true of any comic book franchise, really. Since most of them are [[LongRunner Long Runners]], they tend to have had multiple [[AnimatedAdaptation Animated Adaptations]] made by different studios and creative teams over the years.

* The ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'' did this twice. The first time was set up by ''ComicBook/ZeroHour'' and the second more vaguely by ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis''. ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' then did it a ''third'' time, restoring a version of the Legion mostly like the original.

** ''Film/HalloweenIIISeasonOfTheWitch'' drops the first two films with an entirely new, unrelated story as Creator/JohnCarpenter [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally]] intended the franchise to be a Halloween-themed [[GenreAnthology anthology]] series and not just [[SlasherMovie slasher films]], but the revival of Michael Myers for the forth film due to his commercial popularity made it appear more like a quasi-reboot of the series afterwards rather than a part of an anthology series.

* The 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' movie tells of Kirk and Spock's early years, mixing this trope with AlternateContinuity through use of the TimeyWimeyBall. WordOfGod made it very clear that the [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries universe]] it reboots [[MultiVerse still exists unaltered]] and that this new film series is an AlternateTimeline, thus calming down all of the [[FanBoy fanboys]] ''and'' giving themselves room for AlternativeCharacterInterpretation. (Fan reaction has been [[BrokenBase divisive]], but the new films are doing well from a financial and critical standpoint.)

* Although it wasn't explicitly marketed as such, ''Film/TheSumOfAllFears'' (2002) was a continuity reboot of the ''Literature/JackRyan'' film series including ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober'' (1990), ''Film/PatriotGames'' (1992) and ''Film/ClearAndPresentDanger'' (1994) intending to revitalise the series with a new younger lead actor. Ten years later, ''[[Film/JackRyanShadowRecruit Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit]]'' (2014) was a more straightforward example.

* In terms of the series continuity itself, while it doesn't start itself over, ''Fairly Odd Baby'', debuting after the series was {{Uncancelled}}, 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]].
