* In the third season of ''{{Series/Arrow}}'', Oliver Queen is outed as The Arrow by Ra's Al Ghul and is captured by the Police. They solve this by having his partner Roy wear the Arrow costume and deliver himself to the authorities, claming that he's the real Arrow. The problem is that in season 1 Roy is saved from a murderer by The Arrow ''on live TV'', which would disprove his false confession, yet apparently no one remembers that by the third season, so his confession is accepted.

**** One possible explanation for why the continuity of ''OOO''[='=]'s segment doesn't fit with that of the show is that said segment takes place over time - with the exception of Giru and the {{Out Of Character Moment}}s for the cast, the rest can be accounted for this way. Although it's also worth noting that in the movie, the [[CoolBike Toride Vendor]] is shown being able to fly, an ability it does not have in the show[[note]]given that the Toride Vendor uses the Tora Candroid, it's entirely possible that if the Taka Candroid was used, it could create a bike with flight mode, but that's not what happens - not in the movie, nor in the TV series[[/note]].

** The major, not really {{handwave}}able problem is the lunar wars. ''Imperishable Night'' has as its backstory the Apollo missions being a cover up for a war between The Earth and The Moon. Then ''Bougetsushou'' retcons this into the Lunarians being paranoid and maybe doing the odd bit of sabotage to the astronauts, but it being pretty one-sided.

** ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' just inflated the Snarl UpToEleven with their second finale, the result of whose TimeTravel Plot resulted in only one change: The dinosaurs never went extinct and live with Humans in the modern age. As there are implications that the resulting battle possibly wiped out the Prime Timeline, this [[TimeyWimeyBall potentially screws with or outright Retcons]] much of the canon established for almost all of MMPR up to ''In Space''[[note]]As Zordon powered the Power Coins with energy from the extinct dinosaurs and Saber-toothed Tiger; while the other season suits were [[MidSeasonUpgrade re-models]] of the initial ones.[[/note]], Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder,[[note]] [[SharedUniverse Which operates on being connected to every other previous season]].[[/note]] and Series/PowerRangersSPD.[[note]]Which is the second-furthest series in the timeline that acknowledges the past frequently.[[/note]] Until WordofGod addresses it though, [[RuleofCautiousEditingJudgement speculating is useless.]]

* The various works of Creator/LeijiMatsumoto, which often share characters and have a tendency to re-tell stories from different points of view, could be the trope namer for this. Examples include:

* Creator/HPLovecraft's Cthulhu mythos. Lovecraft himself was not always very consistent with various details between his stories, and several of the other authors who continued his work had various contradicting views of the mythos, leading to much confusion for anybody trying to fit all the stories into a single continuity.\\

** The recently released ''Warcraft Chronicle'' was written to clarify a lot of the Snarl, especially ones related to the Titans/Old Gods, which include writing off the Tribunal of Ages as a [[UnreliableNarrator forgery]] and giving all life on Azeroth a titanic origin.

*** This could be explained as he never saw his fights with his brothers as actual fights, more like play fights, but the skills he got from those fights still make him a good fighter. This is pretty typical with siblings, especially male siblings, rough housing all the time, but mostly just for fun.



** To be fair, a lot of Chris' inconsistencies can be chalked up to him lying for the first half of the season, clearly having some sort of secret agenda for coming back to the past. Things get ''relatively'' consistent after TheReveal, but good luck trying to rationalize how ObviouslyEvil he was beforehand, or why he did things like trap Leo in Valhalla. Actually, that one might make sense--because it turns out that he hates Leo for [[spoiler:being a DisappearedDad]]. Except wait, what about all those episodes where they got along or even bonded ''before'' TheReveal?

** This one's pretty easily ''handwaved'' though. Frasier is, first and foremost, a snob, and not likely to admit to having a blue collar dad. Furthermore, it's clearly established in the latter show that, even with the 'argument' handwave mentioned above, Frasier and his father for the most part have an extremely difficult relationship that really only begins to seriously improve when they've been living together for an extended period of time in ''Frasier''. The lie is a bit callous, but not outside the realm of Frasier's thinking.

* ''Series/ICarly'', ''Series/{{Zoey 101}}'', and Series/{{Victorious}} share [[TheVerse a universe]]. ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' is a piece of RecursiveCanon in that universe, and has Drake Bell the actor (not Drake Parker the character), show up in ''Zoey 101''. Then in "iStart A Fan War", an episode of ''Series/ICarly'', they include a cameo by a pair of ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' characters. One episode even has Carly and Spencer watching an episode of ''Series/DrakeAndJosh''.
** There is a solution.. possibly. See Creator/DanSchneider for info. In short, there is a ShowWithinAShow that could be what the characters are referring to and ''not'' Drake and Josh''.
*** That solution is then torn apart by the ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' episode ''Who Did It To Trina'', where they explicitly state that ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' is a TV show. Even though the episode before it had Helen, one of the main characters ''from'' ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' appear and reference characters from ''Series/DrakeAndJosh''.

** Here's another one for you: When did Power Rangers first start showing up on earth? In ''[[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]]'', Tommy claims that the Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers were the first, but then you have seasons like ''[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]'' and ''[[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Mystic Force]]'' where the organizations the Rangers belong to have existed for decades or even millenia. And even if you argue that those organizations may not have had actual Rangers until their respective seasons began, ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' outright states that the Samurai Ranger powers have been in use and passed down throughout family lines for ''centuries''. We see flashbacks to the earliest Samurai Rangers in ''ancient Japan'' with the ''exact'' same {{Magitek}} as they present ones use; the only difference is previous teams seem to use the ''Shinkenger'' version of the morphers.
** Dino Thunder does its best to try and tie together all the previous series by being the first since ''[[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Lost Galaxy]]'' to acknowledge that they all exist in the same universe, but creates more inconsistencies, in addition to the above mentioned, Tommy himself is one. First off he is shown working for Doctor Anton Mercer a few years prior. However this contrasts with his previous appearance in Forever Red where he owns the local hangout and is implied to have a bit of money which seems quite different then assisting a dinosaur professor.
