* 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." Deckard's presence in ''Film/BladeRunner2049'' confirmed he is human after all.

* When ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' was still in production, BryanSinger claimed that Havok would not be Comicbook/{{Cyclops}}' brother in this continuity, but would be related to him in a way that made sense in the timeline of the films. This led many to believe that Singer was implying that Havok may actually be Cyclops' ''father'' in the movies. However, come ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', Singer confirmed that Havok ''is'' Cyclops' sibling, albeit his older brother like in the ''Comicbook/UltimateXMen'' comics.

** On a related note, the difference between Legendary Pokémon and Mythical Pokémon. The Japanese media has always maintained their is a difference but it wasn't until Gen V before international media did the same, referring to Mythicals as Legendaries beforehand. From a gameplay perspective the difference is Legendaries can be obtained in game while Mythicals need to be obtained from real life one of a kind events or from some of the spin offs. Yet Deoxys is available in ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire'' in the same way Legendaries are despite still being classed as Mythical. Storyline wise the difference is non existent, Mythicals and Legendaries are both rare, have many myths surrounding them and a good chunk of Mythicals are closely aligned to Legendaries.

* Is [[VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} Phione]] a legendary Pokémon or not? Not even official sources can make up their minds on this one. A general rule is that Legendary Pokémon are unable to be bred, even with Ditto. However, Manaphy (which is unambiguously classified as a legendary) is an exception. The result of breeding a Manaphy is Phione. It has only so-so stats (which are terrible compared to Manaphy's), learns none of the moves that make Manaphy unique and it doesn't evolve into Manaphy. Basically it is a gimped version of Manaphy. This would be fine, but it is only obtained by breeding Manaphy or other Phione (it doesn't appear in any regional Pokédex either) and it is still restricted from places like the battle tower/frontier/subway, a distinction which only box and event legendaries get. The side games treat it as a bonus character while the anime treats it as any regular (if rare) Pokémon.

** Are Ultra Beasts Legendary Pokémon? Since Ultra Beasts are simply Pokémon (but strong ones) from another dimension the simple answer would be no. Yet, the Mascot Legendaries of Gen VII are all technically Ultra Beasts from a storyline perspective and comparisons are also made to the Gen IV Mascot Legendaries in regards to the fact they are from different dimensions as well.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', the Striders and Lalondes were both stated to be white at one point each. During Act 6, Creator/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]].
* In 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.

* ''Series/QuantumLeap'': One of the house rules according to creator Donald Bellisario, was that Sam would never leap into a real person. For the first four seasons, he didn't; we only saw "[[HistoricalInJoke kisses with history]]". But the rule was suddenly dropped for Season 5, which opened with Sam leaping into [[WhoShotJFK Lee Harvey Oswald]] (a story Bellisario particularly wanted to tell as a counterpunch to Oliver Stone's ''JFK''), and continued with a host of others: Marilyn Monroe's chauffeur, Dr. Ruth, and even [[ElvisPresley the King himself]]. According to Usenet posts made at the time from [[WordOfStPaul someone with connections to the production staff]], this was ExecutiveMeddling at work: the only way Bellisario could get Season 5 made was by giving the network execs the stories they wanted, which involved Sam leaping into real people.

** This extends to Donkey Kong himself. Is he the son of Donkey Kong Jr., or Junior all grown up? Not helping is ''VideoGame/MarioTennis'', in which they both appear as playable characters (though, to be fair, [[VideoGame/YoshisIsland Baby Mario]] also appears in this game alongside his adult self).

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'': SelfDemonstrating/CrankyKong is either Donkey Kong's dad or grandpa. Further complicating the matter is the question of just ''whose'' word to follow. Rare's writer Leigh Loveday has stated that he's DK's father and asked that "if you see Cranky referred to as DK's granddad anywhere, just cover your eyes and hum loudly until it goes away," but Creator/{{Nintendo}} owns the games (including the characters).
