* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Creator/RumikoTakahashi (in)famously replied to the "Pregnant Ranma" problem by saying, "I don't think about that, and neither should you." She then went on to wrote the Musk Dynasty storyline, where animals cursed in the same spring as Ranma were taken as wives and bore children. This answered the first half of the question ("What if Ranma got pregnant...?") and, indirectly, answers [[FirstLawOfGenderBending what would be needed]] to avoid the second half ("...and then changed back to a guy?")

** Considering Cecil himself is white haired in all games, promotional material and even the remake's intro movie, but is blonde in-game, it is perhaps better to just assume all other sources are canon and the remake just partook in an adaptational dye job.

** Due to the overwhelmingly negative fan reaction to Miyamoto retconning the Koopalings into no longer being Bowser's children, Nintendo has since attempted to compromise by stating that their relation to Bowser, wether he's their genetic or adoptive father, boss whose simply a FatherToHisMen, or something else, is unknown.

* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' writers had said that they wouldn't allow Cartman to murder anyone. This was after Cartman murdered Scott Tenorman's parents in "Scott Tenorman Must Die", and before Cartman tried to commit genocide in "The Passion of the Jew" and again in "Ginger Kids".

* Depending on if you ask Matthew Graham or Ashley Pharaoh, Jim Keats of ''Series/AshesToAshes'' is either [[spoiler:{{Satan}} incarnate (according to Graham, sometimes), the Antichrist (Graham again, in different interviews), or a high-ranking agent of evil/The Devil[=/=]Music/DavidBowie (Pharoah, according to Graham).]] Don't even [[BaseBreaker start with the fans' opinions]]. Let's just say, his status is up in the air and leave it at that.

* It seems Creator/NaughtyDog simply cannot make up their minds about [[AmbiguousGender Seem's gender]] in ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxter''. One half of official material refers to him/her as a girl, and the other half as a guy. When the game was first released, two fans, independent of one another, emailed the developer. One got back [[http://the-precursors.livejournal.com/42353.html "Seem is male",]] while the other received [[http://the-precursors.livejournal.com/42600.html "Seem is a girl."]]

* Greg Farshtey, the main writer for ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', has been known to flip flop on certain matters, such as whether or not [[spoiler: Zaktan]] is definitely dead. At first it was a definite "yes", but later he became ambiguous about it. The character seemingly died in an explosion, which for any other character would be a definite kill, but [[spoiler:Zaktan's ability to [[PullingThemselvesTogether pull himself together]]]] made it highly questionable. Apparently, he came out a couple of years after the story had ended to confirm that the character ''didn't'' die.

* Marvel goes back and forth over whether or not TheHulk has ever accidentally killed someone during his city destroying rampages. This lead to a notable {{Retcon}} at least once; the Hulk was sent into space for the ''PlanetHulk'' storyline because a fight between him and [[ComicBook/FantasticFour the Thing]] inadvertently caused the deaths of over twenty people. This was later retconned into severe injuries, which made the whole "shoot him into space" thing into retroactive DisproportionateRetribution.

* 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 [[AffirmativeActionLegacy Miles Morales]], 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.

* The creators of ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' have gone back and forth on whether the events in the movie actually happened, or whether they were all in Scott's head. Aubrey Plaza, the character who plays Julie, has stated that the reason her character acts so hostile towards Scott is because she has an unrequited crush on him. Bryan O'Malley, the creator of the comics, disagrees with this, but Edgar Wright, the director of the movie, supports it.

** He also keeps claiming that a game's quality is determined entirely by its sales and declaring that anyone who thinks otherwise is wrong (citations [[http://seanmalstrom.wordpress.com/2010/04/02/email-do-greater-sales-mean-greater-quality/ here]], [[http://seanmalstrom.wordpress.com/2010/07/01/email-regarding-the-email-do-you-really-believe-better-sales-means-better-quality/ here]], [[http://seanmalstrom.wordpress.com/2010/07/02/email-more-on-sales-and-quality/ here]], and [[http://seanmalstrom.wordpress.com/2011/06/24/malstrom-is-retarded/ here]]), yet he has admitted in [[http://seanmalstrom.wordpress.com/2012/06/16/tasteless-is-why-modern-nintendos-content-is-not-as-good-as-classic-nintendo/ a least one entry]] that sales are unrelated to how good a game is and that many terrible games sold well. He even went as far as to claim that he doesn't consider ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' (the second highest-selling SNES game, no less) to be a good game in the same post.
