* ''Anime/DigimonTamers'': The second of the movies, ''Runaway Digimon Express'', was made without the input of the head writers. A Drama CD (''Message in a Packet'') released later depicts the Tamers a year after the events of the anime, ''without'' their partners, effectively {{retcon}}ning the movie out of existence. However, in a remarkably respectful nod, [[BrokenBird Ruki]] is heard humming ''Promise of the Setting Sun'', the song she sings at the movie's climax. One of the aforementioned head writers, Chiaki Konaka, noted on his website that he enjoyed the movie and the psychological way it explored Ruki's relationship with her absent father -- something Konaka deliberately chose not to emphasize, since he didn't want to give the impression that it was responsible for her being a standoffish tomboy.

** A central idea of the proposed post-TV Movie storyline, was a retooling of the Master into being the Doctor's long lost brother. This is referenced thus in the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E12TheSoundOfDrums "The Sound Of Drums"]]:

* One of the endings in ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand'' refers to Papetoon, a planet from the comic that ran in ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' (more specifically, it was the home base of the team). Said comic was based on the first game, which became CanonDisContinuity when ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' came out.

* In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite'', ComicBook/WinterSoldier's intro dialog if he fights ComicBook/CaptainAmerica is "'Captain Hydra'? Gimme a break, Steve!", referring to the infamous 2016 comic storyline where Cap was revealed to be a lifelong HYDRA supporter (which was quickly {{Retcon}}ned away due to the immense public backlash).

* ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'''s Season 4 two-parter, "Inside Probe", had pre-series Earl talk about having a dream about being sent to jail, getting out, getting hit by a car and being in a coma. Earl comments that how no one would want to watch it. [[TakeThat Season 3, which many agree to be the worst season, had Earl in jail, then in a coma, for several episodes.]]

* ''Film/GodzillaMothraKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack'', has a dig at the widely hated movie ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}''. 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; it established 'Zilla as his own separate canon creature, allowing fans to warm up to the monster as a concept, whatever their feelings about the film.

''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' followed up on this by having both versions fight each other, with the original Big G winning against his FragileSpeedster American version.

** Another much reviled episode, "The Principal and the Pauper", involved Skinner being revealed as taking the name of an army lieutenant he thought killed during Vietnam with his real name being Armin Tamzarian. Ultimately the show goes back to the [[StausQuoIsGod status quo]] by putting the real Skinner on a train and "Armin" resuming the name with there even being a law that no one will speak of the incident again. In a later ep, "I, (Annoyed Grunt)-Bot" , Lisa sees two cats she has being killed before her eyes before finally getting another and deciding to dub it Snowball II to avoid having to get a new dish. Skinner, walking by, notes this.

--> '''Skinner''': That's really a cheat, isn't it?
--> '''Lisa''': Hmm maybe your right, Principal ''Tamzarian''.
--> '''Skinner''': I'll just be moving along, Lisa. Snowball II.
