* In the ''TalesSeries'', the Tales of Fandom games are treated this way, at least by the parts of their audience that don't speak Japanese, due to NoExportForYou. Details may gradually trickle through the fandoms as [[FanTranslation Fan Translations]] are made, but since these can be unreliable, most fanfic writers consider them optional at best.

Added DiffLines:

* pretty much all comics [[RecursiveAdaptation set in]] the DC Animated Universe have this status; they aren't necessarily Non-Canon, but you can watch the entire TV-franchise and at the same time ignore the comics if you please.

Added DiffLines:

*''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'' likely has the loosest canon ''ever''. The only things that stay the same between each episode are Aeon, Trevor, the weird future setting and Aeon failing to accomplish her mission. A graphic novel tie-in did explain the backstory, but who knows if anything about that is canon? Even Aeon and Trevor's relationship is deliberately kept ambiguous—one short has Trevor killing Aeon, another has him giving her a mission.

*** "Big Shell Evil" shows Snake demonstrating a photographic memory talent to memorise a long computer password. He never actually uses this ability in the canon, but there is still a very sad CallBack to it in ''Series/MetalGearSolid 4'' in a sequence where the player may have him forget a computer password, demonstrating he has lost this ability. In addition to this, it elaborates on Snake and Otacon's friendship circumstances and interpersonal quirks, along with "External Gazer".

* With ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'', while the non-Insomniac games are generally not referenced, this trope is [[AvertedTrope averted]] in regards to the [[ComicBook/RatchetAndClank comic books]], which were written by the main writer of the games and has certain elements either referenced or present in ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankAll4One All 4 One]]'', such as Captain Qwark being president of Polaris, or the characters Zogg and Vorn.

* In the ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' franchise, this is how Creator/InsomniacGames treats the games not made by them, specifically ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankGoingMobile Going Mobile]]'', ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankSizeMatters Size Matters]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SecretAgentClank Secret Agent Clank]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankBeforeTheNexus Before the Nexus]]''. While they fortunately haven't contradicted anything thus far, they aren't seen as being very important to the story at large and are never referenced.

-->'''Belkar:''' First of all, I told you that in one of the ''[[Magazine/Dragon Dragon Magazine]]'' comics, so I'm not even sure that's the same continuity.

* {{Lampshaded}} in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick:'' in one online strip where Haley mentions Belkar claiming to be a gourmet chef. He angrily responds that he said that in a ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine script, so he has no idea if that's even canonical. (For what it's worth, he ''does'' manage to cook something afterwards, but given that it's for [[ExtremeOmnivore the Monster in the Darkness]], who can say if it's good.)

* In Creator/MarvelComics, the ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' stories are a strange case , since the events are meant to depict what would happen in different timelines based on a different set of choices. Any new elements introduced in those stories should still be there in mainstream continuity, or at least in the background. But more often, unless those elements are explicitly mentioned in the main continuity, the stories are considered alternate realities that do not have to effect the main Marvel continuity.

This material is separated from the main continuity, usually in the form of special episodes or even BonusMaterial. It's not out of {{canon}}icity, but it's not treated as if it was fully in canonicity either. Its continuity status is "NoExceptYes": not quite accepted, and not quite rejected. None of this will be referenced in the canon, but it will not be contradicted outright either.

* ''ComicBook/TheSimpsons'' comics could be canon to the ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' TV series, not that the show would tell you.
