* ''Webcomic/SisterClaire'' did this for the first few comics due to Yamino not being satisfied with how the original pages turned out and some of the more juvenile humor at the time which contrasted greatly with later events of the story. As such the new pages tone down these bits and add some more context to the characters.

* ''SonsOfAnarchy'' inserted a line in a "Previous On..." wherein the character of Cherry who had been explicitly [[PutOnABus Put on a Bus to Canada]] is told she will be "safe in Ireland," to set up her [[TheBusCameBack three episode guest appearance]] while the club goes to {{Oireland}}

* In the GameboyAdvance and most later ports of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', the scene in which Locke meets Celes is censored to remove the Imperial soldiers beating her onscreen, which Squaresoft considered necessary in the age of video game ratings systems in order to get the desired rating in Japan.

*** The opening song describes the Middle East as a place "Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face." People understandably got pissed about the UnfortunateImplications of that line, and the line was later changed to "Where it's flat and immense and the heat is intense." **** Though this was evidently not changed in some foreign dubs of the movie. For instance, the Norwegian dub for this (and the next line, "It's barbaraic, but hey! it's home") is "Om barbarene misliker fjeset ditt kan de barbere bort Ýra - med kniv!" (lit. "Should the barbarians not like your face, they might shave off your ears - with a knife!")

* A sillier example of this involves Literature/TheBerenstainBears. Rather large numbers of people distinctly remember seeing this name spelt as Berenstein as children and a fair number of people even remember seeing it as adults. [[https://www.vice.com/en_us/read/the-berensteain-bears-conspiracy-theory-that-has-convinced-the-internet-there-are-parallel-universes?utm_source=vicefbus This is obviously proof of time travel or parallel universes or some other phenomenon]].

* Invoked but averted when Bedivere stops being {{Gender Flip}}ped in ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace''; the characters say it'll only happen as long as no-one expects the management to go back and redraw all the previous strips s/he appeared in.

A later retcon establishes he's trans, so the previous strips of him appearing female ''are'' in continuity.

* A necessary one happens in ''QueensBlade Rebellion'' between the web version of the Illustrated Stories and the paperback version: In the Net-based one, Mirim kills one of the Tomoe's fellow shrine maidens (later revealed to be named Tokiwa) when trying to help Annelotte escape from Gainos. Since that scene is out of character for her, in the paperback version, Tokiwa was killed by random guards instead, while Mirim is chasing Annelotte instead. This was omitted in the animated version, as the aforementioned scene never happens and the events are developed in a different direction. Also, the manga version has [[spoiler:Leina using her "Maria" persona]] rescuing Annelotte instead, rather than Tokiwa, and Mirim does not appear until some chapters later.
