* Philbrick, the shifty butler in EvelynWaugh's ''Decline and Fall'', gives a different version of his backstory to everyone who inquires. When the other characters confront him after comparing notes, he admits that he lied but adds that they'll never find out the truth.

* An inconsistent is almost canon for ComicBook/TheJoker, as evidenced by his quote at the top of the page. A number of writers have given him a different origin in the past fifty or sixty years, and all of them are half-canon, because SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker [[http://static2.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_super/10/109071/3574772-2316207526-dcori.jpg isn't sure himself.]] One constant factor is that he usually wore the Red Hood before he was dumped into that vat of chemicals.

** The burning cabin on TomSawyer Island was originally due to an Indian attack. As TheSavageIndian fell out of favor, the backstory was changed several times before it became a regular cabin.

* Inverted at the end of [[{{Shuffle}} Really? Really!]] with Asa's hair length. Kaede asks whether Rin prefers Asa's hair short or long and allows you to choose which one you prefer. A few in-game minutes later, Asa appears with the hair length that was chosen, despite being nowhere near Rin and Kaede when the answer was chosen.

** Almost but not quite literally the case for Sakuya. ''[[AllThereInTheManual Perfect Memento in Strict Sense]]'' offers multiple backstories for her, but they're all rumours going around the village, and it's unlikely that any are actually true.

** Almost but not quite literally the case for Sakuya. Sakuya, who has knowledge and skills far beyond her physical age (late teens to twenties), is a TimeMaster, and was seemingly recognized by Eirin, an immortal being who hadn't been to Earth in over 1000 years. ''[[AllThereInTheManual Perfect Memento in Strict Sense]]'' offers multiple backstories for her, mentions several rumors going around the human village, including her being a fallen VampireHunter or a Lunarian, but said book also says that they're all rumours going around the village, just rumors and it's unlikely that any more than likely none of them are actually true.

* Peter Pan in the original ''PeterPan'' book by J.M. Barrie. He tells Wendy of how after being adopted into Neverland, he tried to return home to his parents only to find the window locked and another little boy in his room, and he uses this as his justification for disliking adults. The narration of the book says something along the lines of "this may or may not be what happened; but it's how Peter remembered it at the time and thus he wholeheartedly believed it."
** Also there are a few inconsistencies between his origin story in 'Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens' and that in 'Peter and Wendy'.

* As if the ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' lore didn't see enough changes/retcons, the setting also features a fair dosage of time travel. Certain forces can tamper with the timeline, while the Bronze Dragonflight tries to fix it. In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the Caverns of Time feature a set of dungeons where the players assist them by whatever means possible. For instance, there are two versions of Thrall's escape from imprisonment: either a bloodless escape during a distraction, or a group of strangers assaulting the keep and a nearby town.
** Although at the end of that one, the bronze dragon that was guiding you implies that after you've destroyed the last of the Infinite Dragons who were trying to alter the time stream, he would alter events so that the original bloodless escape is what everyone will remember.

* ''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].

** There is a possible SeriesContinuityError, made noticeable by the fact the two episodes are from the same season. In "The Stingers Hit Town", Riot mentions that his father was stationed in Germany and that he went to high school with Rapture. In his [[ADayInTheLimelight limelight]] VillainEpisode, "Riot's Hope", he is shown to having not met either of his bandmates until he was an adult stationed in the military. He saw Minx perform with her old band in Germany then joined himself and eventually met Rapture when the three of them later.

** Timon's and Pumbaa's pasts are different between ''Disney/Disney/TheLionKingOneAndAHalf'' and ''WesternAnimation/TimonaAndPumbaa''. The former is likely the canon interpretation as it is more in-line with the films compared to the DenserAndWackier series.

* Hiruma from ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' is seen pulling this during a flashback chapter. Is his father a shogi player, a doctor, or a white-collar criminal? Apparently, it depends on what he feels like today.

* Scar from ''Disney/TheLionKing'' has two StartOfDarkness stories officially: His original story, as revealed in the licensed books ''A Tale Of Two Brothers'', is that he was originally named "Taka". Scar resents the fact his father Ahadi chose his older brother to be the future king and not him. Mufasa is deemed the better choice because he understands [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething the responsibilities needed]] while Taka has too large a temper. Taka tried to get his brother in trouble by getting a buffalo to attack him. One of the buffalos in the herd attacked Taka, giving him a permanent scar. His second origin story comes from ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' animated series. He was the previous owner of an incredibly powerful, magical roar ability and was the leader of the Lion Guard. His power went to his head and he ended up killing the other members of The Lion Guard. Due to this his powers were taken away, however he kept his hunger for power.
