It does this so that it can tackle something beyond the time period of the show (Namely, TheWarOnTerror) and so it can have a character cross the MoralEventHorizon without making him ''completely'' unsympathetic on the show.

** ''Anime/DragonBallZBrolyTheLegendarySuperSaiyan'': Another movie that doesn't really contradict the timeline , as it takes place during the 10 days before the Cell Games, stated as such in the Japanese version and could theoretically take place then. That being said, this does mess up the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil, as Broly is at least more powerful than Perfect Cell.

* ''WesternAnimation/BenTen'' and its sequel got live action films, both do not take place within the animated show's continuity. In the second one, for example, Grandpa Max is with the gang despite being abducted in the series, the team had a cool underground base that didn't appeared in the cartoon, Julie does not exist, etc. They are still considered "Canon" as the events of the film has repercussions in later episodes.
** The cartoon series eventually introduced TheMultiverse, and depicted "Race Against Time" as having happened in another world. The WhatIf episodes of the original cartoon ''also'' apparently all happened ''somewhere.''

* ''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 tenth movie ''Anime/OnePieceFilmStrongWorld'' is an aversion as it was [[WordOfGod written by the creator]] and was actually referenced in a special chapter of the manga. It's official title even says it is the [[TheMovie "One Piece Film"]]. The only time that it could take place is in the few days between the Thriller Bark and Sabaody Archipelago arcs, as Brook is on the crew and the events during and after the Sabaody Archipelago arc make it impossible for the movie to take place after it.

** Like it's predecessors, ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' had two movies released while it was airing. The franchise's fifth movie is referenced in the anime proper when one of it's characters appear in the anime. The franchise's sixth movie takes place after the end of the season, but it's canonicity has been debated as certain members of the anime's staff were not involved in the movie's creation. Both movies were dubbed in English well after the ''Tamers'' dub ended.

** ''[[Series/KamenRiderFourze Fourze]]'': Averted in ''Megamax'', which introduced Rocket States and the Virgo Zodiarts, and first revealed that [[spoiler: Gamou is working with Foundation X]], all of which are quite important to the series. Time will tell with ''[[Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderWizardAndFourzeMovieWarUltimatum Movie Wars Ultimatum]]'' (which affirms the canonicity of ''Film/KamenRiderFourzeTheMovieEveryoneSpaceIsHere'' with the appearance of a character who otherwise only appeared in that movie): for the ''Fourze'' gang, it takes place five years post-series and because of the film's events, the ''next'' major appearances of Fourze (barring AlternateUniverse incarnations, as is the case with ''Series/KamenRiderGaim''[='=]s Movie Wars) ''must'' take place between ''Fourze'' proper and ''Ultimatum''; we'll see if an entry with more canonical weight contradicts it ''five years'' after the series has aired, by which point it's unlikely we'll be seeing much of Fourze. (So far, ''Film/KamenRiderXSuperSentaiXSpaceSheriffSuperHeroTaisenZ'' respects Fourze's post-series continuity via some dialogue courtesy of a time-travelling ''Ultimatum'' character. Every other appearance thereafter is merely a FakeShemp with no major importance to a given movie's plot.).
** ''[[Series/KamenRiderWizard Wizard]]'': Seemingly played straight for all his movies, as there aren't any references to events or concepts from ''Movie Wars Ultimatum'' or ''Wizard in Magic Land'' in the series proper. But in ''[[KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle]]'', Wizard has the EleventhHourSuperPower ring that [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands he pulled out of nowhere]] in ''Magic Land''. However, there ''is'' a possible humorous ContinuityNod to ''Ultimatum'' in Wizard's Hyper Battle DVD: in ''Ultimatum'', Haruto went into an unknown person's Underworld, fell for the beautiful young woman he met there, and was utterly horrified when [[UnsettlingGenderReveal it turned out to be the Donut Shop Owner]] (who says [[AmbiguousGender he was mistaken for a girl when he was younger]]); in the Hyper Battle DVD, when Haruto sees that the Owner has fallen into despair, his immediate response is ScrewThisImOuttaHere, which could be attributed to the events of the film.
** ''[[Series/KamenRiderGaim Gaim]]'': The series is pretty weird about this. To begin with, ''Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle'' is never referenced in Gaim's series... but it does reference his EarlyBirdCameo in the last two episodes of ''Wizard''. (In fact, Wizard reclaims a ring that he gave away in those episodes). As for the others, ''Gaim'' [[BizarroEpisode has a habit of interrupting it's plot to show a movie tie-in episode that is never brought up again]]. For example, after ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'' premiered, ''Gaim'' got a {{crossover}} special with ''Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger'' that tied into the movie. Neither the movie nor the special are ever brought up in ''Gaim''[='=]s series. Then there's ''The Great Soccer Match! The Golden Fruit Cup!''. It seems to take place in an AlternateContinuity... but there's a tie-in episode where one of the characters from the main series is sent to the movie's world, [[spoiler:and the final episode features the Big Bad of the movie as its stand alone antagonist]]. His memory seems to be altered by the end so ''[[Film/KamenRiderGaimGreatSoccerBattleGoldenFruitsCup The Golden Fruit Cup]]'' can stay out of continuity's way. Basically, the rule of thumb is to ignore any ''Gaim'' material not written, in whole or in part, by Creator/GenUrobuchi.
*** The ''Gaim'' movies also use the series' premise of alternate dimensions existing and ''many'' having to go through the threat of Helheim to allow the movie madness to stay out of the way of the tightly plotted series. If you're not inclined to watch the movies, you can just know that between episode x and y, they went through a Crack to somewhere in the multiverse, did stuff that won't matter to Earth's invasion by Helheim, and came back. [[spoiler: At least, until the last Rider turns out to be Kogane possessing a woman.]]
** ''[[Series/KamenRiderDrive Drive]]'': Averted for all films thanks to the series' premise. There are exactly 108 [[MonsterOfTheWeek Roidmudes]], so every Roidmude kill in the movies is accounted for in the series. Even ''Film/SuperHeroTaisenGPKamenRider3'', which takes place in a(n Roidmude-less) AlternateTimeline that gets negated at the end but ends with a cliffhangery aspect of the alternate timeline persisting in the real timeline that'd otherwise make the continuation of ''Drive'' impossible, has a Roidmude kill in the real timeline (Roidmude 102, to be precise) immediately before the twisted time is made reality just to make itself canon. Consequently, the mini-web series ''Kamen Rider 4'', which serves as the epilogue of ''Kamen Rider 3'', sees the heroes fight to resolve that film's cliffhanger and restore ''Drive''[='=]s status quo for good so that the series can continue; ergo, its three episodes are completely devoid of Roidmudes but are still canon.

But For Ultimatum, that doesn't mean it didn't happen, especially this long after clearly AU movies were the norm. For ''Magic Land'', reality was altered to create the very different universe of the film, which is fixed by the end. The bulk of the film is similar to the previous decade's WhatIf stories, but it all still happened for Haruto, if no one else. The movies make references to each other, though: in ''[[KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle]]'', Wizard has the EleventhHourSuperPower ring that [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands he pulled out of nowhere]] in ''Magic Land''.

** The revived series took a BroadStrokes approach to the '96 movie: the Eighth Doctor was repeatedly shown in flashbacks before making an in-person appearance in an online episode, and when the Master returned, we ([[UnexplainedRecovery uncharacteristically, actually]]) got a real explanation for his resurrection (which of course would be unneeded if he was last seen alive.) The points that really stick in the fans' craw have so far not been carried over - one season finale states that a Time Lord HalfHumanHybrid is ''impossible,'' which blows "I'm half human on my mother's side" right out of the water. A ''later'' finale suggested it might not be off the cards after all, but avoided saying anything definite.
