* For ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', the creator {{Jossed}} that the Pines family are [[AmbiguouslyJewish practicing Judaists]]. He states that Grunkle Stan was raised as such but became an atheist, and the twins are being raised nonreligious but are prone to celebrating Jewish holidays ([[WriteWhoYouKnow similar to himself and his own twin sister]]). The fans continue to reject this idea and [[{{Subversion}} unlike other examples of this trope]], [[https://twitter.com/_AlexHirsch/status/758547209830871040 The creator also declared after his previous tweet]] he proclaims this is his headcanon and will respect his fans alternative theories/views of Pines Jewish identity.
* For ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', ''LiveActionTV/AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner'' can be considered this to Timmy's future due to the fact that reveals that Timmy ends up living his life exactly the same as he did as a kid in order to keep Cosmo and Wanda forever, [[DoomedByCanon rendering several things to failure]], such as winning over Trixie Tang or ending up with someone else, any threat of losing Cosmo and Wanda, and [[HeldBackInSchool even advancing past fifth grade]]. Making fans even angrier is the fact that the live action movies [[CanonDiscontinuity ignore the ending to]] ''WesternAnimation/ChannelChasers'' in favor of this reveal.

** 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 of what made Nightmare Moon, and subsequently Luna's backstory, interesting. The same episode also reveals Nightmare Moon was defeated before doing anything worse than 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.

** ''Issue #5'' explained that the holes in the changeling's legs are leftover battle wounds from battling Princess Celestia a thousand years ago. While fans were fine with the idea of Chrysalis herself being that old, most found it odd and off-putting that the entire changeling species was that one swarm that never aged, healed, or increased in number.

* ''Series/TrueBlood'': The final season revealed Lettie Mae was so abusive towards Tara: when Tara was young, her father abandoned them, causing Lettie Mae to descent into alcoholism and take out her frustrations on her daughter. Considering her treatment of Tara over the course of the show, it's hard to believe Lettie Mae was anything resembling a decent mother until one particular incident triggered her abuse on Tara. Not to mention that such an important event in Tara and Lettie Mae's relationship should have been mentioned in the previous seasons. If anything, it comes off as a lazy attempt by the writers to conclude as many character arcs as possible before the series finale.

* ''VideoGame/Prototype2'' had Alex Mercer [[RogueProtagonist turn evil]] and release [[ZombieApocalypse another plague]] in New York after he risked his life to save it after the events of the [[VideoGame/{{Prototype}} first game]]. What led to this sudden shift in motivation and personality is left vague in the game itself, but its explained in the tie-in comic ''The Anchor'' that after finding out [[spoiler:the original Alex Mercer started the plague to begin just to spite his pursuers and the one we play is just a Blacklight Virus clone that assumed his memories]], he lost faith in mankind and went on a soul searching trip around the world hoping to find something to believe in, but he ended up only finding more reasons to hate humans. What cemented his belief that they must be destroyed was an incident when he was backstabbed by a family he was trying to help, but were revealed to be selfish criminals. The fans were displeased that the original game's AntiHero turned into the new BigBad and this explanation did not help matters.

** According to WordOfGod, the "ghosts" are actually creatures from another dimension who take on the appearances and personalities of dead people. This explanation has been universally disliked by fans for [[VoodooShark being nonsensical]] and just generally messing up the whole plot of the show. The show itself ignores this explaination often enough, as seen with Desiree, Ember, the Ghost Dog, and others. Even ''[[TheWiki|Rule]]'' ignores this explanation.

* Part of the point of ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}'' is that it doesn't explain anything about the monster's origins. The associated AlternateRealityGame and manga do, slightly, but not necessarily for the better.

* The ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' finale reveals exactly what year it is and what's up with the "head people". Did we really need to know? (On the other hand, it did however leave the nature of Kara Thrace up to viewer interpretation.)

* Some fans of the ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' series are not happy with the backstory laid out by ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'', or lack thereof. Specifically, [[spoiler:the Proto-Xenomorph is born from a seemingly random series of events, and [[VoodooShark can't be the first Xenomorph because it's too late in the timeline and a carving of the Alien Queen was already seen earlier.]] Also, neither of the ships seen are set up to be the ship from the first movie, making what happens in the film just unconnected events in the same universe.]] Also the reveal that the Space Jockeys are nothing more than large albino RubberForeheadAliens in alien space-suits rather than StarfishAliens didn't go down too well.
