*** Garrus was given a relatively important advisory position prior to ''Mass Effect 3'', and although he dismisses it as just something done to make him shut up, the turians aren't people who tend to stick someone in a pointless position, and despite the Alliance getting curb-stomped on the first day of the Reaper attack, there's indications that senior officers aside from Hackett were also taking the threat seriously. The implication is that while the Council didn't publicly agree with Shepard, three of the four Council species (and some allies) were quietly doing something to get ready just in case. The only ones who didn't seem to have been the asari.

Subtrope of, and is most likely to happen when history is, WrittenByTheWinners. UnPerson is a variety where individuals are "retconned away". DeceasedFallGuyGambit is another form of this. For when the past isn't so much completely changed as painted in a more favorable or less favorable light, see TreacheryCoverUp and HistoricalVillainUpgrade.

When this trope is about constantly denied fears or threats, then it is NoMereWindmill.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', the Diamond Authority leading the Homeworld Gems have been apparently doing their best to cover up how badly things went for them in the Rebellion. They even went as far as to [[spoiler:UnPerson Pink Diamond after Rose shattered her, to the point that only Rebellion veterans seem to remember that she existed ''at all'']].

** Another corrupt church, in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', the Temple of Yevon, declared Yuna a traitor and tried repeatedly to kill her. When they decided they needed her? That traitor business was just a rumor started by the [[FantasticRacism Al Bhed]]. Never mind that they no doubt announced Yuna's supposed treachery through their official channels....

Bentley decides that since Angelique did such a good job framing him, they should let it stick.

* According to [[AllThereInTheManual the "Wesker's Report" publications]], Sherry Birken was taken from Claire and Leon's care by Wesker's agents after the events of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2''. In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheDarksideChronicles'', though, it's declared that the government of the United States took Sherry after they found the survivors and they use her as a bartering chip to make Leon work for them, hence his involvement in the core-story of Darkside Chronicles and the chronologically-later ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4''. This was possibly the result of the fact that "Wesker's Report" was [[NoExportForYou never released outside of Japan]].

* In the ending of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory'', [[spoiler: Kou is initially court-martialed and receives a prison sentence for stealing the GP-03. All data on this Gundam and the other machines that were part of the Gundam Development Project are later deleted, in order to get rid of any evidence that the Federation was developing nuclear weapons. Kou is then released, as he can't have stolen a Gundam that doesn't exist.]]
