* It is frequently assumed by reviewers such as WebVideo/BennettTheSage that ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'' is either a) an anti-war film, or b) a [[{{Glurge}} guilt trip]] aimed at the rebellious Japanese youth of the 1980s. According to director Isao Takahata, however, ''neither'' interpretation is correct. The actual message of the film is that we must be able to empathize with everyone even in the most trying times, and that failure to do so only results in tragedy. As a side note, Takahata is not only a firebombing survivor himself but is also an outspoken critic of Japanese society's tendency towards rigid conformity, which makes the guilt trip interpretation especially ridiculous.

** 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.

** Before the prequels came out it was almost universally accepted that Jedi Masters did not use lightsabers. RogerEbert even mentioned this on the episode of Ebert&Roeper where they reviewed AttackOfTheClones. Why did Obi-Wan carry one, then? Because he never claimed to be a Jedi Master in the original trilogy, only a Jedi Knight; this was another bit of fanon that was jossed.

* Any popular fan theory on ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' usually gets Jossed the very next episode, or is confirmed the next episode. The reason for this is that [=Ryukishi07=] often looked at online forums to find out the current popular theories, just to have them either confirmed, played with or flat out crushed in the next episode. The manga also confirms or denies things that were left ambiguous in the visual novels; for example, the [[spoiler:Rosatrice]] theory (a theory about [[spoiler: Rosa Ushiromiya being the true BigBad and the one behind Beatrice]]), which was growing in popularity with the English-speaking fandom) was jossed entirely by the [=EP8=] manga, which confirmed beyond a doubt that [[spoiler:Beatrice, Shannon and Kanon are all the same person, Sayo Yasuda]].

** For many years (and explicitly stated in the original, parody version of ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967'') there were fan theories that the name James Bond was a pseudonym used by the agent in question, and passed down to his successor upon the previous 007's death or retirement. This was conclusively disproven in ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' when Bond [[spoiler: visits the graves of his parents, Andrew Bond and Monique Delacroix Bond, and is referred to by the family gamekeeper (who has known him all his life but doesn't know what he does for a living) as "James"]]. Although it should be noted that the Daniel Craig installments in the series exist in their own continuity separate from the others. So the theory may still be valid for the 20 Bond films which preceded ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006.
