* Inverted with the MarvelCinematicUniverse, in which the films are the prime continuity, and the spinoff shows are Non-Serial ''Series''. ''Series/AgentsOfShield'', ''Series/AgentCarter'', ''Series/JessicaJones'', and ''Series/{{Daredevil}}'' are ostensibly part of the MCU, however the television productions have almost no impact on the direction of the films, and may as well exist in a separate universe altogether.

* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' not only had two of these movies, but also a non serial ''season'', called ''[[Anime/YuGiOhCapsuleMonsters Capsule Monsters]]'', which has little to no bearing (or [[DubInducedPlotHole continuity]]) with the [[Anime/YuGiOh main anime]] besides the characters. This is due to ExecutiveMeddling on the part of 4Kids, to keep the original series going longer. There was even a non-serial manga spinoff of the original series, ''Manga/YuGiOhR'', taking place after Battle City. But the new crossover movie averts this as the main villain from the movie is slated to appear in the ongoing 5D's series.
** Naturally, ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' has a ball with these.
** Despite being technically non-canon, there aren't many problems with fitting ''Pyramid of Light'' into the continuity; it quite obviously occurs between Seasons 4 and 5.[[note]]There is a short screenshot of Yami Yugi with his three Egyptian Gods in the sky, something that happened during the final battle of season 4.[[/note]] The main problems with it are I) it contradicts the canon story of how Yugi solved the Millennium Puzzle, II) why the cards introduced in it are never used again. OK, one possibility is that the Pyramid of Light card only existed because of Anubis, and disappeared after his defeat, but Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon was certainly a real card, created by Pegasus, and it seems inconceivable that someone as obsessed with Blue-Eyes cards as Kaiba wouldn't keep it and use it.

* The second ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' movie, ''Magical Adventure'', is in stark contrast to first ''[[WhamEpisode The Secret of the Lost Kingdom]]'', which ended the MythArc of Bloom's missing birth parents. It feels like an AlternateContinuity to season 4, but that just raises up even more questions, like where the girls got their Believix powers, Roxy is nowhere to be seen, Nabu is there despite being dead, etc... A common saying among the fandom is that the film makes ''much'' more sense if you imagine the girls in their ''Enchantix'' outfits, as opposed to their ''Believix'' ones.

** The two Dragon Ball Z TV specials, ''Bardock: The Father of Goku'' and ''History of Trunks'', while not strictly canon, do fit in with and elaborate on events mentioned in the manga (the destruction of Planet Vegeta and the BadFuture that Future Trunks comes from) and Bardock gets a cameo in the manga later on; as for the OVA's, a character from the OVA ''Yo! Son Goku And His Friends Return!'' gets a mention in ''Battle of Gods''.

* ''TVTomeAdventures: TheMovie'' is actually a subversion of this. It has all the hallmarks of a Non-Serial Movie: The heroes fight against {{Filler Villain}}s, it has no effect on the plot, the events are (seemingly) never mentioned again, etc. Unlike most Non-Serial Movies, things such as Giga attacking them, references to the X-Games, and [[spoiler: Zetto still running around doing whatever he wants instead of being under arrest]] make it clear when it takes place: right between the X-Games and Infiltration Arcs. There is, however, one far more important difference: [[spoiler: The FillerVillain is defeated by Alpha and Zetto [[FusionDance Fusing]] together to form "Alphazet." This is never mentioned again... Until the Season 3 Finale where, with no warning whatsoever, Alpha and Zetto do it ''again'' to save the day. Oh, and that FillerVillain? [[ArcWelding Turns out]] that he was (Probably) one of the super-intelligent viruses made by the BigBad.]]

* The production team for the original ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' decided not to go the CompilationMovie route for the inevitable theatrical release (a'la ''Gundam'' and ''Yamato'') and instead produced a movie (''Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love?'') that is in a parallel continuity with the TV series, presenting basically the same events as the series, but often in new ways. WordOfGod says that ''DYRL?'' is itself [[ShowWithinAShow a movie within the Macross universe]], and that the differences between the two are for dramatic purposes[[note]]Though ShojiKawamori has said that neither the TV show nor the movie is "main" canon, and he considers elements of both to be "true".[[/note]]

* According to [[TheWikiRule Bulbapedia], all of the movies except the aforementioned Victini movie are considered Canon to the series, take place between the episodes they air, and fulfill the same purpose as {{Filler}} episodes, as no Pokémon are caught or evolve/ learn new moves.
