* 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.

* Is Deckard in ''Film/BladeRunner'' a replicant? Director Creator/RidleyScott says yes. But this only applies to the film; in the source book, the WordOfGod is very clearly "No, he's human."

Added DiffLines:

* In the 1990s, when asked, producers involved with the ''WesternAnimation/{{Simpsons}}'' would claim Smithers was not gay, but just obsessed with Mr. Burns to a creepy degree (the phrase "Burns-sexual" was sometimes used). As the series progressed, this logic was clearly abandoned and Smithers became a generically gay man, shown dating and interested in men other than Burns.

** Same with Birdo (most common consensus is that she's pre-op though lately they've begun implying she's post-op).

* Creator/NimbusLlewelyn, author of ''Fanfic/TheWizardInTheShadows'' and ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' is prone to this - something stated in an A/N can and will be contradicted ten chapters later. Since despite his justified claims of a grand plan and littering his stories with the contents of ChekhovsArmoury, he's noted a tendency towards [[WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants making up many of the fine details - and some major characters - as he goes along]], most notably in the latter story. Early on, he said that the story would pretty closely follow the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books and be around 150,000 words, in line with ''Shadows'', his previous long form project. It is now 780,000 words long, longer than the first five Harry Potter books ''combined'' and has fairly significantly deviated from the books.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', the Striders and Lalondes were both stated to be white at one point each. During Act 6, AndrewHussie [[OrwellianRetcon took out the reference to the Striders being white]] (for a short time, they were later restored) and said that the humans being drawn without colors was supposed to mean they were aracial and could be considered any race you want. [[WordOfDante Despite this]], it's generally accepted the kids are white due to [[GrandfatherClause that being the most common interpretation ever since Homestuck began]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': The show's crew has firmly stated that only hooved animals like the ponies themselves as well as some mythical creatures are sapient enough to achieve speech, yet a few beasties such as deer and giraffes are portrayed as instinct-driven animals that rely on ponies for certain aspects of their care.

* In an interview about ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', the writer said that [[spoiler:Junpei would spend the rest of his life searching for Akane, but would never find her]]. This was before a sequel was planned, however. At the end of the [[VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward sequel]], it's revealed that [[spoiler:Junpei actually does find Akane, decades into the future. But, as he muses, she's not the person he once knew: "The Akane I knew died long ago." The original quote isn't strictly true, but [[MetaphoricallyTrue from a certain point of view...]]]]

* Quite common with the {{Nasuverse}}, which has a [[AllThereInTheManual large amount of supplementary material]], which often directly contradicts other materials or information present in the works themselves.
