* In ''Film/GodzillaMothraKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack'', a great dig at the widely hated movie ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}'' was made. Near the beginning of the movie, the Japanese Defense Force is being briefed on the history of Godzilla. One cadet whispers to another "Didn't Godzilla attack America a couple years ago?" The other's response: "No, that wasn't really him." Interestingly this had the effect of doubling as a ContinuityNod; by subverting TheyChangedItNowItSucks, fans were able to [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap warm up to 'Zilla a bit]] because he now his own separate canon creature. Not that it [[SoBadItsHorrible helped the movie itself, however...]]

** Similarly, there was [[VillainSue Samuel Haight]], who ended up with the powers of a werewolf, a vampire, ''and'' a mage. When he died, his soul was instantly whisked away to be [[AndIMustScream turned into a Deathlord's ashtray]]. The rulebooks have since always carefully closed off the possibility of combining even two different character types. In a novel detailing the endgame for ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'', a mage manages to gaze into the Umbra, and sees a powerful ghost extinguishing his cigar on a screaming ashtray.

** Speaking of 4Kids, they are also guilty of this. Having infamously cut out the entirety of the Little Garden arc, including several major characters (like Mr. 3 and Miss Goldenweek/Ms. April Fool's Day), the episode immediately following this deleted arc has the characters giving a rundown of the Baroque Works agents. They mention characters they had apparently never met as if they had recently dealt with them.

* In one episode of ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', Malal/Malice, a character whom Games Workshop {{retcon}}ned out of existence as to not to get sued, appears briefly on "Spessbook" chat, threatening to return from the "retconnian" where he is trapped at the moment. At a later point, we actually get to see the Retconnian for ourselves, which holds some of the other retconned things within the [=WH40K=] universe like the Squats (and [[InsistentTerminology Fucking]] Horus, who wasn't quite retconned but got killed [[DeaderThanDead so hard]] he could go nowhere else)

** ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' is the subject of many new Discontinuity Nods, now that the franchise is in something of a revival and Creator/AkiraToriyama is supervising it more closely. The ''Xenoverse'' video games explicitly refer to it as a sort splinter timeline caused by Trunks' time machine shenanigans, and the much-beloved Future Trunks has a lot to say about his less-beloved counterpart's methods, although he does come come around.

Sub-trope of MythologyGag.

to:

Sub-trope ''This trope does not refer to a positive or neutral MythologyGag to material that has been excised from canon or was created for a non-canonical work. This trope is about unpopular material being jabbed at in the form of MythologyGag.
an allusion in another work, effectively making it to the MythologyGag trope what TakeThat is for the ShoutOut trope.''

* One of Chun-Li's win quotes in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII: 3rd Strike'' is "Leave me alone! I'm a fighter, not a news reporter!" This is a reference to the live action ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie, in which Chun-Li's occupation was changed from Interpol agent to news reporter. Ironically, ''VideoGame/MegaMan9'' includes a reporter who looks suspiciously like her during the opening movie.

* The infamous ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie is a great source of in-jokes over at Creator/{{Capcom}}:
**
One of Chun-Li's the most controversial changes made in the film was that Chun-Li was a journalist instead of a cop and Interpol agent. Accordingly, one of her win quotes in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII: 3rd Strike'' is "Leave me alone! I'm a fighter, not a news reporter!" This is a reference to the live action ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie, in which Chun-Li's occupation was changed from Interpol agent to news reporter. Ironically, reporter!"

** If [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Demitri]] uses Midnight Bliss on Chun-Li in ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos'', she'll transform into her movie counterpart, right down to the red qipao.
