* The promotional campaign leading up to the release of ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}'' was more or less ''intended'' to produce EpilepticTrees of all varieties, which it did. Fan speculation identified the monster, unseen in trailers, to be any number of previously established beings—[[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu]], Franchise/{{Godzilla}}, {{Voltron}}, [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Donkey Kong Jesus Riding on a Puff of Smoke]]—instead of what it actually was, [[spoiler: an immature sea creature that was awakened from dormancy from a falling satellite and became huge after exposure to a soft drink additive. This is not spelled out in the movie, but it's AllThereInTheManual.]] ''Prob''ably...

* Fans of ''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' tried to find hidden meaning in the fact that the Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything was "42" while the Ultimate Question was "What do you get when you multiply six by nine?". Some observed that, in Base 13, 6 x 9 '''is''' 42. Adams famously responded "I don't write jokes in Base 13". In the same vein, attempts to assign deeper meaning to the number 42 in the first place were {{Jossed}} when he said he picked the number at random, decided it sounded good, and went with it. Stephen Fry stated, possibly jokingly, "Douglas told me in the strictest confidence exactly why 42. The answer is fascinating, extraordinary and, when you think hard about it, completely obvious. Nonetheless amazing for that. Remarkable really. But sadly I cannot share it with anyone and the secret must go with me to the grave. Pity, because it explains so much beyond the books. It really does explain the secret of life, the universe, and everything."

* In the ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' fandom, the two most popular theories about the identity of the third girl from the photo (that she's a relative of Gamma's, and that she's a young Jones) were immediately {{Jossed}} by [[WordOfGod the author]] on the forum. Since most of the fans don't hang out on the forum, these theories remained popular, until TheRant below [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=365 this page]] put them to rest in the bluntest way possible. Also parodied in the rant on [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=336 this page]]. The first three theories that Tom facetiously shot down were {{Shout Out}}s to to actual EpilepticTrees from the fandom. He has taken this to a whole new level by having Renard Joss a theory that Jones was a robot ''in comic'' on this [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=592 page]]. When the theory refused to die, Jones herself stated she was not a Robot on [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=728 this page]]. The rant on that last one also includes a shirt design Jossing the theory yet again.

** The first week of November, 2011 had significant amounts of {{Fanon}} {{Jossed}}. First, a new blind bag wave was released which contains mostly background ponies from the show. None of the five whose toy names had become well-known had their {{Fan Nickname}}s, which caused heated debates about which names to call them by--the old and established {{Fan Nickname}}s or the brand-new toy names whose likes have been rendered obsolete by {{Canon}} in two other blind bag ponies' cases. The good news for them is that the later waves of blind bags stated those official names as second names, making some fan interpretations canon. For example, fan name "Lyra" + old official name "Heartstrings" = new official name "Lyra Heartstrings."
** Lauren Faust once revealed more of the actual backstory of Nightmare Moon, and how she was banished, on her Website/DeviantArt page. (Unfortunately, it was in the page-comments section, and has long since scrolled off.) Much of it invalidates the common fanon interpretation of [[DracoInLeatherPants Luna]] as basically the victim of [[RonTheDeathEater Celestia]] in the whole affair. Different from many other forms of [[{{Jossed}} Jossing]] in that Faust pointed out that since it was never stated in the show, it isn't really canon, and it was perfectly possible for the current crew to contradict it. Later, the two-part episode "Princess Twilight Sparkle" made the Jossing fully canonical.

** There was also quite a bit of speculation about Roxas, known only as the "Blond-Haired Kid", or BHK, after a few previews of ''Kingdom Hearts II'' were released. Many theories were in the correct vein, but as Roxas is linked to a group of people who were never mentioned at all in the first game, it was virtually impossible for anyone to guess his true identity. It got easier to pin "BHK" post-''Chain of Memories''. However, people had no clue how to take [=DiZ=], with the common theory having him as the "Superior" of the Organization and Ansem's Nobody.

* A popular [[MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] theory was that the redheaded ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} agent Amanda Righetti portrayed in ''Film/{{Captain America|TheFirstAvenger}}'' was [[ComicBook/{{Agent 13}} Sharon Carter]]. This was shot down when it was announced that Emily [=VanCamp=] would be playing Carter in [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier the sequel]].

** Upon the release of The Force Awakens many fans moved on to the theory that Rey might be Luke Skywalker's daughter instead. Some thought the main protagonist of the Star Wars spinoff movie Rogue One would be revealed as the mother, but that theory was quickly debunked by Daisy Ridley in an interview. Still, the Rey Skywalker theory persisted until director JJ Abrams responded to a [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/jj-abrams-reys-parents-not-884438 question regarding Rey's parentage]] at the Tribeca Film Festival, clarifying that Rey's parents did not appear in The Force Awakens. He suspiciously [[http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Star-Wars-J-J-Abrams-Backtracks-Statement-About-Rey-Parents-125157.html recanted this statement several hours later]], but the damage was done for most fans. The secondary comments made by Daisy Ridley and Pablo Hidalgo only served to confirm Abrams' initial statement. The canon tie-in book Bloodline by Claudia Grey also conflicts heavily with the Rey Skywalker theory. Countless fans now claim that the theory would cause innumerable character assassinations, would be incredibly convoluted and could never be developed believably.

** Yet another notorious fan theory was that Snoke was actually Darth Plagieus. This theory remained popular for months after the film's release until story group member Pablo Hidalgo finally confirmed [[http://i.imgur.com/DgIx5Jq.png via Twitter]] that they are two separate characters, and that Darth Plagieus is dead. Like ''really'' dead.
** Finally, some fans thought Finn and Rey would become romantically involved in following episodes. This theory was shot down by John Boyega (the actor who plays Finn) in an [[http://variety.com/2016/film/news/star-wars-episode-viii-darker-bigger-john-boyega-1201774027/ interview]], where he clarified that Finn and Rey are just friends and will not be evolving into romantic interests.
-->'''Boyega:''' I mean, we didn’t establish a romance in seven; we never played it that way. [...] Yes, Finn and Rey – they’re just friends.
