** ''Lost Galaxy'' and ''Ninja Storm'' got this, though ''SPD'' has been able to keep its 2025 setting so far; team-ups feature TimeTravel. ''RPM'' is so recent it just hasn't happened ''yet''.
** RPM now explicitly takes place in another dimension (pretty much the only explanation for Samurai ''not'' being in a post-apocalyptic wasteland and featuring someone from ''Morphin'.'')
** There's also Jonathon Tzachor's constant flip-flop over the state of the series' continuity. Initially, it was one whole universe except ''RPM''. Then, he decided that none of the Disney-era series happened (''Ninja Storm'' through ''RPM''). ''Then'', he decided that ''every'' season happened in different continuities - even the old-school ones that came before the SuperSentai format was picked up! Which makes ''Mighty Morphin'' season 3 and ''Turbo's'' endings {{Downer Ending}}s!

** ''Lost Galaxy'' and ''Ninja Storm'' got this, though ''SPD'' has been able to keep its 2025 setting so far; team-ups feature TimeTravel. ''RPM'' also dodged it by being declared an AlternateUniverse, and ''their'' team-ups involve crossing dimensions. ''Dino Charge'' is so recent it just hasn't happened ''yet''.
** RPM now explicitly takes place in another dimension (pretty much
''yet''; but seems destined for it considering it ended with [[spoiler:Earth destroyed, before the only explanation for Samurai ''not'' being Rangers travel back in a post-apocalyptic wasteland time and featuring someone from ''Morphin'.'')
prevent the destruction along with the extinction of the dinosaurs]] - the following season, ''Ninja Steel'', doesn't involve ''any'' of this.

** And then there was the infamous timeline debacle that lasted up until (but will probably continue after) the release of the ''[[AllThereInTheManual Hyrule Historia]]''. For example, [[http://zeldalegends.net/index.php?n=interviews&id=1998-11-13-np-miya&m=html the 1998 interview with Miyamoto]] contradicts the [[AllThereInTheManual manual of]] ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', and then ''that'' statement was contradicted by the ''[[http://www.zeldawiki.org/images/c/c1/ZeldatimelineHHtranslation.png Hyrule Historia]]'' official timeline that was released in 2011.

* The writers of ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}'' have stated multiple times that the film was not intended as satire on the decreasing intelligence of mankind. Nearly 10 years after the film was released, the writers changed their mind about that on [[https://twitter.com/etanjc/status/702545314733895680 Twitter]] after events leading to the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, such as the massive accidental poisoning of water and plants for money, high votes for a racist and elitist Trump and general success of sharing half-truths among the population makes them agree with the fans on how their movie actually is coming true.

* ''WebOriginal/AtopTheFourthWall'''s Linkara once had a video of the "Top 10 Comics I'll Never Review." However, it ends with another character forcing him to review the #1 entry ([[spoiler:''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' comics]]). That joke aside, he's actually gone on to review several other things on the list (manga, webcomics, ''Comicbook/OneMoreDay''), usually for special occasions or Patreon sponsors.

* The very first strip of ''Webcomic/{{Unreality}}'', the main characters, Dominic & Sarah, are stated to be "Best Friends" with an antagonistic relationship, and just a few strips later, they're a Fully-Fledged romantic couple whose relationship is anything but antagonistic.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/JRRTokien was continually tinkering with his massive Legendarium, resulting in some contradictions between published materials and what he decided later on top of his [[RiddleForTheAges intentional mysteries]]. One example is the origin of the Orcs; he continually tried to reconcile an "evil" race with his Catholic belief that no creature could be inherently evil or incapable of redemption, and there was also the question of if they were tortured Elves or created by Morgoth.

* ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'': All the main characters have a VagueAge, but to make matters worse, each mention of the matter made by the crew seems to contradict the previous one.

** And now, as if the shipping wars weren't bad enough, Rowling has said that Harry and Hermione would have been a better match in some ways and that Hermione settling down with Ron was just her clinging to "wish fulfillment."

* Creator/JoeQuesada was adamant that the mainstream Franchise/MarvelUniverse would ''never'' crossover with the UltimateMarvel Universe, and is on record saying that the idea would be creatively bankrupt. Fast-forward to 2012, where Marvel launched [[ComicBook/SpiderMen a heavily-publicized crossover]] between Peter Parker, the mainstream universe Spider-Man, and Comicbook/MilesMorales, the new ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan. This was largely done to celebrate Spider-Man's 50th anniversary, as well as cash-in on the success of the ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' movie.

Different from {{Retcon}}, because retcons are changes to something that happens in the story, instead of the Word of God. Also different from a [[SwordAndSandal flip-flop]] ''worn'' by an [[CrystalDragonJesus in-universe god]], or a [[LotusEaterMachine god that's]] [[DeusEstMachina made of]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flip-flop_%28electronics%29 flip-flops.]]

** On a different note, are Iori Yagami's [[TechnicolorFire flames blue or purple]]? The sprites show them to be the latter, but official sources from both the past and present tend to mix this up frequently. To further confuse matters, the Yasakani (the clan the Yagami were formerly known as) were said to have [[FireIsRed crimson]] (read: [[DependingOnTheArtist "orange"]]) flames like the Kusanagi but gained {{Orochi}}'s blue flames when they [[DealWithTheDevil struck a deal with him]] [[DrivenByEnvy out of jealousy for the Kusanagi]]. However, Orochi Chris (one of Orochi's Four Heavenly Kings and [[LateArrivalSpoiler the vessel of his eventual rebirth]]) ''also'' uses purple flames like Iori despite not having reddish-orange flames to begin with (and [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally]], Orochi Chris' flames were going to be ''black'').

** As the ''KOF'' verse has a very loose grasp on the concept of [[CloningBlues "clones,"]] it's unclear if Kula Diamond, the Anti-K', is truly an OppositeSexClone of series lead Kyo Kusanagi. The NESTS Team story in ''2001'' has Kula mention that she was "grown from a petri dish" whereas her bio in ''Maximum Impact 2'' (where the general backstory of the pre-existing characters is unaltered) instead suggests she's a CloneByConversion in the manner of K' or Nameless.
