* After the main ''Franchise/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' series ended, Scott heavily implied that [[spoiler:all four games were AllJustADream (as opposed to only the fourth, which had already been established as an extended NightmareSequence).]] Naturally the fans weren't too keen on this possibility.

*** The [[FanWank implied explanation]] for why the Second Doctor and Jamie look visibly older in "The Three Doctors", "The Five Doctors" and "The Two Doctors", resulting in the events {{Fan Nickname}}d "Season 6B", is still fairly controversial. The theory states that the reason the Doctor can't control the TARDIS is because the Time Lords had been piloting it for him without his knowledge, and after his capture at the end of "The War Games", when the Time Lords appear to alter his appearence and exile him to Earth, he was actually used as a BoxedCrook agent by the Time Lords for centuries until the sentence was carried out, during which he persuaded the Time Lords to let him have his beloved companion Jamie back. The BBC has pretty much absorbed this into canon on account of 'making sense' and there are several books set during these events, but many fans dislike it for diminishing the beautiful conclusion to the Second Doctor's story, being improbable based on what we actually see in "The War Games" and being rather unnecessarily cruel, forcing the Second Doctor to go through the pain of losing his companions again.

** It is ''very'' heavily implied that Applejack's parents are both deceased, and fans almost universally liked and accepted the idea that [[NiceHat Applejack's hat]] was a TragicKeepsake from one of them to the point that it fell into WordOfDante territory. When Hot Minute [[{{Jossed}} torpedoed that headcanon]] by declaring she won it bobbing for apples at a fair, fans were [[https://derpiboo.ru/435899 quick to fanwank a compromise]]. When that was further jossed by showing she has a [[https://derpiboo.ru/569582 closet full of them]], the bronies proved they were ''that'' dedicated to the TragicKeepsake idea and ''still'' insisted that one of the hats was special or simply chose to [[FanonDiscontinuity ignore the closet scene altogether]]. When [[https://derpiboo.ru/988840 this happened]] in ''Made In Mainhattan'', fans threw the hat a [[https://derpiboo.ru/988186 quick]] [[https://derpiboo.ru/988246 funeral]], and '''still''' embraced the tragic keepsake fanon.
** Nightmare Moon's origin was left mysterious for several seasons and thus most fans were under the impression Luna ''intentionally'' became Nightmare Moon. The [=IDW=] comics gave a backstory that Luna was transformed by outside sources however many fans refused to consider it canon until it appeared in the cartoon itself. Eventually we did see Luna's transformation into Nightmare Moon and it's heavily implied she didn't transform willfully. Many fans dislike this explanation because they felt it took away a lot what made Nightmare Moon, and subsequently Luna's backstory, interesting.

The same episode also reveals Nightmare Moon was defeated before doing worse than anything worse then briefly KO Celestia, which was [[AnticlimaxBoss disappointing for such an anticipated event]] and made [[TheAtoner Luna's guilt over it]] come off as [[{{Wangst}} silly and overblown]] to the point of FridgeLogic unless one takes [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFiendshipIsMagic later comics]] as canon.

* Good luck finding anyone who enjoyed the explanation of Tails's parents in ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'', no not who they are,[[spolier: but the fact that they were ''abuducted by aliens''; said aliens also de-roboticized almost everyone on Mobius]], good luck finding people who liked ''that''.

* RedHotChiliPeppers singer Anthony Kiedis is well known for his excuses as to why they won't play older material or songs from One Hot Minute live. He'll often blame John Frusciante, their large variety of hits, his ability to memorise the lyrics, or he'll say 'we tried it but it wasn't working', but the truth is, he calls the shots, despite the rest of the band and fans wanting to hear it. An example of this is the many teases Josh Klinghoffer would do, which were intended to be full songs, but Kiedis did not want them in the setlist.

* Fans of the "Striaton Trio are really the Shadow Triad" fanon were ''not'' happy when ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' jossed that theory, to the point where some fans insist that the Striaton triplets are just lying.
** Fans also didn't like TheReveal that [[spoiler: N really ISN'T Ghetsis's son. To add insult to injury, Ghetsis found N in the wild as he was ConvenientlyAnOrphan, making it a little underwhelming that Ghetsis [[NoEndorHolocaust wouldn't steal N from his real parents]] or treat his own flesh and blood as [[MoralEventHorizon horribly]] as he did.]]
** Additionally, fans expected Ghetsis to have the PlayerCharacter ''[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice killed]]'' by Kyurem's Glaciate when the scene was revealed, not [[HumanPopsicle freeze them]]. This combined with the above (which also {{Jossed}} a theory about N being the 14th attempt for Ghetsis's plans to TakeOverTheCity) took away his title as "Pokemon's Greatest Villain" and gave it to [[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers Darkrai]] and [[VideoGame/PokemonRanger Purple Eyes]].

* ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'': ArcWelding villain Romulus was behind most of the events in Wolverine's life including the Weapon X program. Fans prefer the mystery not be revealed in such a simplistic way, or prefer the other dangling plot threads.

* This was one of the main criticisms of ''VideoGame/{{Condemned}} 2: Bloodshot''; which pulled a DoingInTheWizard to explain a lot of the events of ''Condemned: Criminal Origins''. In ''Criminal Origins'' Ethan Thomas goes through an army of insane homeless people while pursuing a serial killer, and there are hints that something supernatural is what's making all the homeless people crazy. ''Bloodshot'' reveals that there is nothing supernatural going on, instead an AncientConspiracy had put devices that look like smoke detectors around the city that made a supersonic noise which drove everyone crazy. Not only did this come off as silly and underwhelming, it still did not explain everything, like the monster that was following Ethan in the first game.
