* At the end of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'''s treatment of ''Film/TheGirlInLoversLane'', the bots are profoundly depressed by the movie's DownerEnding, specifically the ShockingSwerve death of lovable waitress Carrie. Joel offers the bots a refreshing epiphany that more or less ''defines'' FanonDiscontinuity: you don't have to ''accept'' what the movie hands you. The cast promptly begin imagining less depressing endings for the film. This was mentioned in the official episode guide as being based on the universal negative reactions of the writing team upon first viewing the film, and the skit seemed almost psychologically necessary.

* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Marge Simpson]] has shown such an attitude towards her children, eating a story book about Joan D'Arc to avoid telling Lisa that the French warrior was burned at the stake, commenting it was easier to swallow than the Disney/{{Bambi}} video. A later episode reveals Marge and Homer walked out of ''Main/{{Carrie}}'' after she was crowned prom queen so she could pretend the story ended happily.

* The narrator of ''WebVideo/CinemaWins'' said at the end of the video for ''Film/{{Logan}}'' that despite liking the movie, he prefers to think of the movie as taking place in an AlternateUniverse to the Film/XMenFilmSeries rather than actually be a part of its universe.

In moviedom, {{Sequelitis}} is the most common cause of Fanon Discontinuity. It's very common to hear fans of a popular movie series disavow all sequels beyond a certain point, typically the first or second movie. For example, the unofficial slogan of the ''Franchise/{{Highlander}}'' fandom is, "There Should Have Been Only One" (a play on the franchise's famous quote of "ThereCanBeOnlyOne," in case you're wondering).

It is often supported and justified by the fact that the creators of the original had nothing to do with the sequels, so it is essentially not their work.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', we learn that Willow always stops watching ''MoulinRouge'' a few minutes before it ends so she can pretend it has a happy ending. Which means she must not watch [[ForegoneConclusion the first five minutes either]], unless she wants to be confused.

* In the episode "Stranger Than Fan Fiction" from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Rainbow Dash gets in an argument with another Daring Do fan named Quibble Pants who doesn't want to acknowledge the existence of the later Daring Do books because he thinks they focus too much on unrealistic action clichés.
