* Chef Horst in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'' has served a prison sentence, but nobody knows why because every time someone asks, he gives a different explanation ("I robbed the second-largest bank in France using only a ballpoint pen."), none plausible ("I created a hole in the ozone over Avignon.") and probably none true either ("I killed a man. With ''this'' thumb"). [[spoiler:The thumb story comes back when he scares off former-Chef Skinner with it... with Skinner somehow being thrown out of the kitchen. There might be some truth in that one]].

However, ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' gently retcons New York City away, and ''Donkey Kong'' now takes place in New ''Donk'' City, an NYC-like city in the same world as the Mushroom Kingdom.

* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'': Charlie Nash encountered M.Bison (North America; "Vega" in Japan) during a [wartime mission/secret operation/solo assignment] in [Cambodia/America/Venezuela/a Shadaloo base near Thailand]. Charlie prevailed over the dictator but tragically [turned his back and got zapped/was blasted by a Shadaloo gunner/failed to escape the base before it blew up/suffered some mysterious terrible fate]. Guile wanted to prevent it, of course, but [didn't know Charlie was in danger/wasn't strong enough/wasn't fast enough/realized Charlie did what he had to do]. One thing is certain, though, [he's dead/he's missing, presumed dead/he got turned into Shadow/and as soon as I figure out what the hell it is, I'll let you know].
** As of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', WordOfGod has given some canonical information regarding him. He was [[CavalryBetrayal blasted by a gunner Bison paid off]] and [[BodyHorror stitched together]] in ways similar to FrankensteinsMonster. He's NotQuiteDead, but he has ComeBackWrong and is LivingOnBorrowedTime.

* ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'': Makarov. It's partly because he has the power to alter reality, allowing him to change the past, partly because he's constantly lying and exaggerating about himself. It completely gets on the Interviewers' nerves.

** Loneliness, the first BigBad of the series. Is she a figment of [[spoiler:Trixie's]] imagination? A SplitPersonality? A Draconequus? A piece of Discord's magic from his Discording? Something like Fluttercruel? An parasitic mental entity? An evil spirit? An EldritchAbomination? A Spirit of Dark Magic? No one in universe knows and WordOfGod has no intention of ever revealing which if any is true.

* WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck is given at least three mutually incompatible origin stories over the course of the series. WordOfGod says this was a deliberate invocation of RuleOfFunny - and if they'd had more episodes, they'd have written even more...
