* Jaime Hernandez of ''ComicBook/LoveAndRockets'' made conflicting remarks about whether the "Ti-Girls Adventures"/"God and Science" story was bringing the superhero elements of the early issues fully back into continuity or whether it was a superhero AlternateUniverse. When the graphic novel version was published he settled on the latter.

* The original head writer of ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', Christopher Yost, denied rumors that ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' takes place in the same universe, despite Creator/DisneyXD airing them as part of the same block every Sunday. Creator/JephLoeb, who became the executive producer for ''Spider-Man'' and some episodes from the second season of ''The Avengers'', went on to ''confirm'' those rumors. Viewers have pointed out that if Loeb's word becomes true, it would open up a mess of contradictions. (For starters, the title character of ''Ultimate Spider-Man'' attends the same high school as [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]] and ComicBook/LukeCage, but ''Earth's Mightiest Heroes'' depicts Iron Fist and Luke Cage as older than Spidey). It was also initially reported that ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' would be set in the same universe as ''Ultimate Spider-Man''. It's since been confirmed by both Loeb and the creators that ''Assemble'' is a sequel to ''Earth's Mightiest Heroes'', albeit with past events only brought up in BroadStrokes, if at all.

* Quite common with the {{Franchise/Nasuverse}}, which has a [[AllThereInTheManual large amount of supplementary material]], which often directly contradicts other materials or information present in the works themselves.
** One particular example was a moratorium on more modern Servants. Previously it had been stated that such occurrences were impossible due to the fact that people view being able to use a gun or invent a machine as skills that can be learned, rather than anything particularly heroic. Cue VideoGame/FateGrandOrder, which introduces Billy the Kid, Calamety Jane, Nikola Tesla and Charles Babbage as Servants.

** 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, [[YoshisIsland Baby Mario]] also appears in this game alongside his adult self).

* In a more unusual case of this trope, for ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', creator Butch Hartman said that when it came to Timmy's two children Tommy and Tammy from ''WesternAnimation/ChannelChasers'''s DistantFinale that their mother is supposed to be [[AmbiguousSituation ambiguous]]. However, come ''LiveActionTV/AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner'', this has been changed from "ambiguous" to pretty much "Tommy and Tammy Turner no longer exist at all since that ending has been retconned by the live-action movies". Basically, he changed the answer of the identity of Tommy and Tammy's mother to "[[CanonDiscontinuity no one]]", which is why most fans have declared FanonDiscontinuity on the live-action films.

** Before ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Birth By Sleep]]'', Nomura stated that Nobodies don't age. [[spoiler:''BBS'', which takes place ten years before ''Kingdom Hearts II'', but only one before they would have lost their hearts, shows them looking ten years younger than they were in ''KH2'']]

* What was and wasn't still canon in the ComicBook/New52 reboot of the DC Universe wasn't ''ever'' really clear, but some things that ''were'' said was that:
** ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' wasn't getting a hard reboot. Nope, that's exactly what she got, as it was alter established.
** ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'' was still canon. Later, it was established as not being canon anymore, and even later, in ''ComicBook/TheButton'' (a ''Rebirth'' story), Barry Allen and Bruce Wayne actually witness a scene from it when running through the time stream and don't remember it.

flip flopped on were:
** Whether ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' wasn't was getting a hard reboot. Initially, Brian Azarello said that his run just followed up on the previous stuff... Nope, that's a hard reboot is exactly what she got, as it was alter later established.
** If ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'' was still canon.canon. It was initially said to still be canon, despite a lot of it no longer being possible. Later, it was established as not being canon anymore, and even later, in ''ComicBook/TheButton'' (a ''Rebirth'' story), Barry Allen and Bruce Wayne actually witness a scene from it when running through the time stream and don't remember it.

** Whether or not there were ever any ComicBook/TeenTitans before Tim Drake's new group. It was initially clear that, yes, there were. ''Red Hood and the Outlaws'' even has Roy reference being on a team with Dick Grayson, Cyborg and Aqualad. Then the collected editions of the series that mentioned them were edited to remove those references... mostly. DC said that there ''was'' a team consisting of Dick Grayson, Cyborg, Garth, Roy Harper and Starfire... but they weren't called the Teen Titans.
