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). Fanon Discontinuity also tends to arise when an audience has been dealt a particularly bad DarthWiki/WallBanger.O

** In the ''VideoGame/DarkSeed 2'' longplay, Mike Dawson losing at ring toss became a RunningGag, to the point that they even posted a video of just the losing animation. When Mike finally gets the item to cheat at the ring toss carnival game, he steps up to play... and then loses again because slowbeef spliced over the footage of him winning. They then tell the viewer that Retsupurae-canon is that Mike Dawson never won the ring toss game and never will.

* The trope is referenced in a ''{{Nemi}}'' comic strip where the titular character's friend is trying to tell her about someone who appeared in the film ''Film/HighlanderIITheQuickening''. Nemi then says that ''Film/{{Highlander}}'' doesn't have any sequels. Her friend realises she's "repressing everything you don't like", which he then comments is why she has not seen ''[[Film/AlienResurrection Aliens 4]]'', to which she answers, "''Aliens 4''?" Her friend also says, "I know you've seen both sequels," implying that he practices Fanon Discontinuity himself or is genuinely unaware of the exact number of sequels in the ''Franchise/{{Highlander}}'' franchise.

* In the ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' review of ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'':
--> '''Yahtzee:''' Don't take this the wrong way though. BioShock Infinite is a retread, but it's the good kind of retread that uses a formula that works to explore new ideas, and it's a worthy sequel to the original.
