* ''FanFic/DigimonChildrenOfTime'': As revealed in the first chapter of ''Children of the Present'', after the events of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', Gennai, insisting that TheMasquerade still has to be maintained for a little while longer, not only erased the memories of everyone who wasn't a [=DigiDestined=] or a family member of the [=DigiDestined=], but also somehow created the ''Digimon'' franchise as shown in ''Anime/DigimonTamers''.

* ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':
** The events of the movie not only [[spoiler:fix the BadFuture]], but also [[spoiler:alter the events of ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'', bringing Scott and Jean (who's still taken to wearing red) back to life. ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' also gets discontinued, not just in the ending, but showing only that William Stryker is different and Logan's flashbacks to his adamantium bonding are those of the first two movies. Although there is still a scene from ''Origins'' in the final film, and its events are alluded to.]]
** BroadStrokes: [[spoiler:While ''Film/XMen1'' probably still happened more or less the same way it did in the original timeline (Rogue's got her white hair), the events of ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' must have been altered for Jean to be alive and one of the good guys, as well as Mystique presumably no longer being a murderous terrorist or Magneto's [[TheDragon Dragon]]. Also, among the few things that remain from ''The Last Stand'' and ''Origins'' respectively are Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat is played by Ellen Page and Beast will become Kelsey Grammer when older, and Wolverine's bone claws.]]
** It becomes obvious that Weapon X plays out differently than originally set forth, meaning Jean's sacrifice at Alkali Lake never happened and her rampage after coming back as Dark Phoenix didn't either.
*** Apparently certain characters were born earlier due to events in DoFP, and therefore meet each other much sooner; among these characters is Nightcrawler, so his kidnapping and abuse (as shown in the prequel comic) will presumably not happen.
** When young Magneto exits the film, he says goodbye to Xavier as he did in the first two films. This time, Xavier says goodbye back.

And Jean unleashes the Phoenix much earlier than she did in ''Last Stand'', and she controls it to do good this time.

* In ''Fanfic/{{Pokedex}}'', Stantler are revealed to have potential RealityWarper powers that do a CosmicRetcon to the world of anyone who sees one, though it is unknown if they are really doing this trope or just altering memories. And Arceus is also capable of this - [[spoiler:It turns out that he has been retconning in new regions constantly.]]
