* Interestingly subverted in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'': the popular [[spoiler: "the 'Mysterious Man' is Zacharias aka Alfonse and Sharena's missing friend"]] theory was apparently shot down when with the revelation that [[spoiler: the 'Mysterious Man' is actually Prince Bruno of Emblia aka Veronica's older brother]]... but then, said theory was ''confirmed'' when [[spoiler: "Zacharias" was revealed to be Prince Bruno/Mysterious Man past alias when he was banished to Emblia.]] So thea speculation that was apparently disproved ''turned out to be true after all''.

*** Referenced in ''Series/DoctorWho'' itself: if Ian Chesterton isn't chairing the board of governors at Coal Hill School in 2013, then someone else with the same name is.

* According to a famous anecdote, Hungarian poet János Arany once came across the notes a teacher had written about his poems. After reading the phrase "The poet is trying to say..." for the umpteenth time, Arany succinctly wrote on the margin: "The hell I was." According to Creator/IsaacAsimov, when he was in school taking a course on modern literature, a man stood up at the back of the class and to the instructor loudly proclaimed: "That's not at all what was written!" When the teacher asked who the man was, he got the reply: "I'm the author," to which the instructor succinctly answered: [[DeathOfTheAuthor "Then your opinion is really irrelevant here."]] Asimov accepted this in good grace.

* Many, many ConspiracyTheories in general are jossed as predicted results of whatever EpilepticTree you followed down the rabbit hole refuses to materialize.

* A great deal of ''Manga/FairyTail'' fanficcers liked (and still like) to claim that Natsu and the rest of the guild would begin to ignore Lucy for some reason when Lisanna was revealed to still be alive. 60+ chapters later, Natsu and Lucy's bond is stronger than ever, and he and Lisanna have said perhaps four or five sentences to each other. And Lisanna isn't jealous at all for this. In fact, the anime plays her up as a ShipperOnDeck for Natsu and Lucy. In another case, over half the theories as to what Natsu's relation to Zeref might be or what happened with the dragons all revolve around the idea that Natsu and possibly Gajeel are several hundred years old. The idea is based around the fact that neither of them could pass through a barrier that was supposed to only block those who were stone statues or over 80, so it looks like a pretty sound support. Except that the author came out and stated that the two of them ''aren't'' over 80. Unfortunately, since the majority of fans don't actually buy the official volumes, most don't read it, and still make guesses based around an already jossed theory.[[spoiler:Thought while they aren't this old, they really borned 400 years ago]]

** It was part of the [[{{Fanon}} collective headcanon]] that ages ago, before they were as powerful as they are now, Celestia had pink hair instead of her rainbow mane (as seen in various old depictions of the sisters, including the book seen ''in this two parter'') and Luna looked like her season one self (as per Creator/LaurenFaust's explaining of the redesign by saying it was because right after being purified her magic was at its lowest). Well in ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E25TwilightsKingdomPart1 Twilight's Kingdom Part 1]]'', when the princesses explicitly lend ''all'' of their magic to Twilight, the only change to their designs is that their manes are no longer blowing in a nonexistent wind. This makes [[PlotHole nonsensical oddities]] out of Luna's earlier design (why ''did'' she look that way after purification, then?) and Celestia's depiction in books and tapestries (if she ''never'' really looked like that, is ''every'' pony ever to draw her colorblind?) but hey, every show has a {{Headscratchers}} page for a reason. However, it could be that donating all their Alicorn magic does not stop them from being Alicorns, as indicated by Cadence remaining one.



** Rainbow Blaze from "Games Ponies Play" was assumed to be Rainbow Dash's father until her actual father was introduced in "Parental Glideance".

* Many fans of ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'' believed that the G-Man was in fact Black Mesa's administrator, which was a reasonable assumption in the interim before the sequel, but was Jossed when the Administrator, now named Wallace Breen, appeared as the principle antagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}.'' The G-Man turned out to have an entirely separate backstory.

* A hugely popular theory among ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' fans was that TheFlash would pull a HeroicSacrifice in the Season 2 finale, acting as a [[MythologyGag nod]] to his death in ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''. [[spoiler:''A'' Flash did indeed end up dying in this manner...except it was ''Kid'' Flash!]]
