** Was [[GodEmperor Talos]] a divinely chosen warrior from the ancient Atmora who achieved [[DeityOfHumanOrigin apotheosis]] by his own merit or just a shrewd politician from High Rock with powerful friends? [[spoiler: Possibly ''both''. After achieving divinity, it is possible that he [[CosmicRetcon retroactively re-wrote his life]]. Many things credited to Talos were originally actions and traits of [[MergerOfSouls different individuals]], including Tiber Septim, Zurin Artcus, and Wulfharth Ash-King. (With the latter two also possibly merged into the same "Underking" identity.]]

** Speaking of Nerevar, very little is known of his early life and even then, there are conflicting sources. Vivec stats that Nerevar was a mere merchant caravan guard before [[TookALevelInBadass rising to become the leader of the Chimer people]]. Additionally, [[NobleSavage Ashlander]] tradition holds that he was not born in the land that would eventually become Morrowind, though does not specify where he was born. Even the year of Nerevar's birth is unknown, though had to have been prior to 1E 369 when he first appears in the historical record.

* {{Pinball}} designer Kevin Kulek became this when it was discovered he was making pinball machines themed on the ''Franchise/{{Predator}}'' films without approval from Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox: Sometimes, he would say he misinterpreted the permission he received from Fox, and sometimes, he would say he never received permission at all.

* ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'': Suspecting a traitor among them, the Chief confides to Rita that he's actually an alien. He also confided other origin stories to Cliff and the Negative Man. It was actually an elaborated ruse, to discover the traitor by checking which story got leaked. In the end, it turns out that none of those stories was the real one.

* Creator/HPLovecraft's Franchise/CthulhuMythos has details that differ from story to story. Part of this is because several authors contributed to the Mythos and they sometimes had quite different views, but even the stories written by Lovecraft himself are not always consistent. For example, it is not clear if Mt. Kadath and the plateau of Leng exist in the real world (their only actual appearance is in the Dreamland stories, but they're mentioned as real world locations in other stories) or whether Cthulhu himself is a Great Old One or not (in ''Call of Cthulhu'' he's mentioned to be one of Them, in ''Literature/TheDunwichHorror'' he's referred as Their "cousin"). This is likely because Creator/HPLovecraft didn't give a damn about canon and frequently recycled names and concepts, but varied the details depending upon the particular story.

* Creator/JulesVerne's ''Literature/RoburTheConqueror'': François Tapage has a different explanation of Robur's backstory every time you ask him. None of which are compatible with any of the others.

* Plot Hole (yes, that's his real name) from ''Webcomic/{{Acrobat}}'', during a story that was supposed to tell his secret origin, told multiple stories, ripping off the origins of {{Franchise/Superman}}, {{Franchise/Batman}} and partly {{Franchise/Spider-Man}}, making Plot Twist a villain in every single one - they don't match with each other, or Plot Twist's origin, and hint that Plot Hole doesn't even know what his ArchEnemy really looks like. The only thing he's sure is that he was somehow created by Plot Twist, but even that cannot be found as absolute truth, because he's obviously obsessed with him.
