** 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 [[EpilepticTrees insist]] that the Striaton triplets are just lying.

* According to WordOfGod, the "ghosts" in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' 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 often enough, as seen with Desiree, Ember, the Ghost Dog, and others.

** The official backstory to Ember is that she was an outcast who a popular boy asked out as a joke. He never turned up for the date and she stayed up so late that she didn't wake up when her house caught on fire. Fans dislike it for not being remotely accurate to her VillainSong "Remember", which sounds more like Ember dated (or had a one-night stand with) a boy who began ignoring her and this caused Ember to want revenge or fall into a depression. "Remember" even has the lyrics "(...) two weeks you didn't call" which makes it clear there was a period between the boy ditching her and Ember's death, and the song implies the incident occured in September while her death was in December.

* ''Anime/BlackButler'' had a ''major'' uproar from the fanbase when WordOfGod revealed that Grell is in fact a [[{{Transsexual}} transwoman]] instead of always being a guy, angering {{Yaoi}} fans that like to ship him with Sebastian.

* Good luck finding anyone who enjoyed the explanation of Tails's parents in ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'', no not who they are, [[spoiler: 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''.

** 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, [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/291791/mare-of-many-hats some less seriously then others]].

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

* The ''Anime/HaloLegends'' shorts quickly created a BrokenBase due to their BroadStrokes regard to the canon, with later explanations only providing partial comfort. One such lose-lose situation was at the end of the ''The Package'', where John fights an Elite Major in a sword fight referred to in the subtitles as "Thel". However, ''Halo: The Cole Protocol'' indicated that Thel 'Vadamee, the Arbiter from the original trilogy, had not fought a Spartan until he had already been promoted to Zealot. Others, however, liked the irony of 'Vadamee nearly killing John only to be his ally later in the series. But that was nullified with the updated release of ''Halo: The Fall Of Reach'', which clarified that it was a different Elite fighting John named Thel '''Lodamee''. Now the canon was fixed again, but the irony was lost because John lost to a random mook.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' has a more unusual example of this when it comes to the identity of the mother of Timmy's two children from the DistantFinale to ''WesternAnimation/ChannelChasers'', Tommy and Tammy. ''Film/AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner'' decided to make it so that their mother is [[spoiler: no one whatsoever]], due to the fact that the live-action movies [[spoiler: threw ''Channel Chasers''' ending into CanonDiscontinuity]]. This ''infuriated'' fans not just because it [[{{Retcon}} retcons]] a major source of FanficFuel away, but also revealed that Timmy's future has him [[spoiler: never advancing past fifth grade and never leaving Cosmo and Wanda]], not to mention that the third live-action movie involves an event fans [[FanonDiscontinuity refuse to acknowledge]].
* For ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', the creator basically {{Jossed}} that the Pines family are [[AmbiguouslyJewish Jewish]], causing the fans to vehemently reject that they aren't.

Added DiffLines:

* The explanation for the second generation characters in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' left a bitter taste in a lot of fans' mouths. ''Fates'''s child units have little to no bearing on the game's main plot, were born during the events of the game (with little more than a quick mention when the player unlocks their first one), and were left in alternate dimensions to be [[ParentalNeglect raised by vassals]]. Players picked up on the FridgeHorror and other {{squick}}y implications [[note]]several of the parents were abandoned by their own relatives, and yet do the same thing to their kids; also, fans are uncomfortable with the fact that the younger-looking characters can immediately have kids of their own[[/note]], leading to the mechanic being much less warmly received than it was in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening the previous game]].

** A lot of fans didn't like the origin of the Avatar story, mainly the fact that bending originates from [[spoiler:lion turtles]]. And the (to some) {{RetCon}}ning of the Avatar spirit from the spirit of the planet (which, to be fair, was an earlier idea of the mythos that was dropped early in production of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', so it's not really a retcon) to a "[[BigGood spirit of light and peace]]" changes the morality of the series, from seeking "balance" to a much flatter "good triumphs over evil" dichotomy.
