God Never Said That differs from BeamMeUpScotty in that that trope is about things not said or done by the ''characters''. This is about things not said or done by the ''creators''. Compare UrbanLegendOfZelda, which propagates itself by similar means.

** Lauren Faust was particularly susceptible to this trope during her time with the show, it seems. Late during her tenure as the show's executive producer, when asked about the popular background character [[FanNickname Derpy Hooves]], she said there was an unseen character in an upcoming episode by the name of Ditzy Doo, and the name might at some point be applied to the character. What fans failed to notice was that she was [[ShrugOfGod just speculating]] at this, and didn't actually have any plans to use that name for the character. Furthermore, the fans seemed to blind themselves to the fact that, while she speculated on that, in the very same post she said that if the fans liked Derpy, then the name would remain Derpy. This has caused a bit of a BrokenBase about which name was "canon" or "better", that persists to this day. This wasn't helped when Amy Keating Rogers made a statement about the Season 2 episode ''The Last Roundup'', in which she claimed they originally were going to use the name Ditzy Doo for the character's comic bit near the beginning of the episode, before being asked to change it to Derpy. Of course, the reasoning for this is likely because the episode was being written right around the time Lauren had originally speculated on using that name for that character, before the production team really adopted the name of Derpy Hooves.

* Because of how insanely quick rumors and news spread on the internet, game developers and publishers try to avoid the trope by either being [[ShrugOfGod intentionally vague]], say nothing, or [[LyingCreator outright]] [[TrollingCreator lie]] when they are asked about future games or future content. All it takes is someone to say something that can be taken in a different way to cause a mess and forcing the creators to clarify the issue by saying that they never said what they said.

* A lot of people on Wiki/ThisVeryWiki have accused ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' co-creators Creator/BryanKonietzko and Creator/MichaelDanteDimartino of being [[LyingCreator Lying Creators]] for claiming that they had always planned for Korra to end the series by getting together with [[spoiler: Asami.]] However, they claimed no such thing. The closest was Bryan [[http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/105916338157/korrasami-is-canon-you-can-celebrate-it-embrace saying]] that he had pitched [[spoiler: Korrasami]] during initial planning for Book One ''as a joke.'' They have both consistently stated that they only started writing a [[spoiler: Korrasami]] romance at the beginning of Book Three.

** Nintendo never {{retcon}}ned anything about Mario being a plumber in 2017, in fact, they never made any meaningful statement about his current job at all. The Japanese Twitter linked to a profile that happened to refer to him being a plumber in the past tense, but this was specifically referencing the original ''VideoGame/MarioBros'' game, which was one of the few times he's actually done a plumbing job.

In response to the misunderstanding, the profile was updated again in 2018. Clearly stating that, yes, Mario ''is'' a plumber, but he's not limited to just that.

* Gerry Anderson once said that ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice'' was closer in spirit to his show ''WesterAnimation/{{Thunderbirds}}'' than that film's LiveActionAdaptation. Some accounts exaggerate this, saying that he liked ''Team America''. This was not actually the case. Anderson didn't like ''Team America'', all he said was that it was closer in spirit to his show (in other words, it was intended less as praise of ''Team America'' than as a TakeThat to the LiveActionAdapation).

** In reference to a third party's "origins", he specifically said "no manga/anime characters". A later claim was that he wouldn't consider characters unless they debuted on a Nintendo system, which was debunked when [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud Strife]] became playable. (And come on, fans know [[Franchise/SonictheHedgehog Sonic]] obviously didn't debut on Nintendo, yet he's been in Smash since ''Brawl''.

** He did not (exactly) say third-party characters have to originate in a video game when he listed the ''Brawl'' third-party criteria. He specifically said "no manga/anime characters" and that was it when it came to their "origins."
