** In "The Armageddon Factor" we meet a Time Lord named Drax who knew the Doctor before he got his doctorate, and calls him Theta Sigma (or Thete for short). There's nothing in the story suggesting this is a nickname, but the fandom quickly decided it was and this became AscendedFanon nine years and three Doctors later in "The Happiness Patrol" (and also in a Sixth Doctor ChooseYourOwnAdventure book). Because we're not supposed to know what the Doctor's name is, and it definitely isn't a couple of Greek letters.

Bad idea
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'': ** Ever since ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' came out and revealed [[BigBad Xehanort]]'s backstory, it was heavily implied he'd actually preplanned at least some of [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts "Ansem"]]'s and [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII Xemnas]]'s actions somehow. But when ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' came out and revealed [[spoiler:he'd been secretly using a complicated TimeTravel spell to zip back and forth between his other selves in order to micromanage an overarching AssimilationPlot behind the scenes all along]], more than a few fans just felt like it turned all their progress into one big ShootTheShaggyDog story simply for the sake of getting quick hype for ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII'' in the laziest way possible.

* In the LiveActionAdaptation of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan,'' it is revealed that [[spoiler: the setting is a post-apocalyptic future and the Titans were a failed government experiment]]. Needless to say, fans of the anime thought the twist was stupid not only because it was a cliched explanation for how the Titans came to be, but the manga has yet to reveal the origin of the Titans and it was seen as an example of the movie being InNameOnly.

** 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 [[ShinMegamiTensei N being the 14th attempt for]] [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha 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]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' gives us the first explanation into Scar's backstory since the semi-canon ''The Lion King: Six New Adventures''. Like Kopa, the series [[CanonDiscontinuity ignores]] the books. In ''[=TLG=]'' Scar was the previous leader of The Lion Guard however his powers got to his head. After murdering the other members his powers were relinquished. Many fans absolutely loathe this explanation to his StartOfDarkness, hate the concept of "the Roar Of The Elders" as it's heavily fantastical compared to [[GenreShift the movies]], and especially hate how Mufasa let his killer brother scot-free.

** In "The End of Time", the Tenth Doctor gives a speech about what regeneration is, in which he explains it as being a death, where 'some other man' saunters off. Many fans objected to this, pointing at situations where other incarnations had considered it a rebirth, a healing or a second chance, and thought the speech was a pre-emptive attempt to guilt-trip fans into considering his yet-to-debut successor a ReplacementScrappy. Later Eleventh Doctor episodes write this off as 'ego problems'.

** Good luck finding anyone who views the banishment of the Sirens to the present in ''My Little Pony: Fiendship Is Magic #3'', thus [[{{Jossed}} invalidating]] their ReallySevenHundredYearsOld aspect {{Fanon}} held them to, as necessary or desirable. ** Many fans were also off-put by the idea in ''My Little Pony: Fiendship Is Magic #4'' that Nightmare Moon was literally trapped ''on'' the moon (in a temple with a species that creates dreams) for a thousand years instead of being sealed in the moon instead. ** ''My Little Pony: Fiendship Is Magic #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.
