* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' is the biggest example of this in video games, as fans attempted for years to find some coherent continuity between the games, with one of the bigger points of contention being whether there was a linear timeline or if the ending of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' actually split the timeline in two.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' does this. Not counting ''Gold and Silver'', which were direct sequels to the first games, ''Red and Blue'', every iteration since has been part of a jumbled up timeline that can only be explained by in-game functions. ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' start off the series. At the same time that these are happening, the events of ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'', games released six years later as part of the third generation, take place. Three years later, the events of ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' take place. Starting around when the red Gyarados business goes down, the events of ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' occur. (It helps if you consider the remakes; ''Ruby and Sapphire'' and ''[=FireRed and LeafGreen=]'' are part of the same generation and take place at roughly the same time, as are ''Diamond and Pearl'' and ''[=HeartGold and SoulSilver=]''.) And then, some unknown time later (possibly multiple years later; see the following note for more details) the events of ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' take place, followed by ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' (2 years later [[note]]Red, the player character in ''R/B/Y/FR/LG'', is canonically 11 in his games, which would make him 14 during Gen II/IV; as his age is given as [[VagueAge 16-17+]] in ''[=B2/W2=]'', this would suggest that ''B/W'' is set only, at most, a year after the events of ''[=HG/SS=]'' and ''Platinum'', [[CuttingOffTheBranches which is implied to be the "canon" version by Cynthia]] in her ''B/W'' cameo[[/note]]). ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' then takes place around the same time as ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2''. ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' are a few years down the road from ''[=B2/W2=]'' and ''X/Y'', as Red (see the above note) is officially said to be [[VagueAge in his early twenties]]. [[note]]Concept art for Grimsley, a character appearing in both the [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Unova]] [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 titles]] and ''S/M'', also mentions that he is two years older in the latter, however. Then again, considering that Generations VI and VII are confirmed to be an AlternateUniverse (see below), who knows, really.[[/note]] ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' and ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness Pokémon XD]]'' go wherever you want them to.

** Gen VI muddles the timeline a bit thanks to ''Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire'', the remakes of ''Ruby and Sapphire''.
