* Creator/MarvelComics:
** The ''Star Wars Legends Epic Collections'' reprint the various comics produced by Creator/DarkHorseComics. One would think this would be a good opportunity for new readers to jump in, but while each volume collects stories that take place at roughly the same point in time, the order of the volumes themselves seems to be chosen at random, not one that would actually made sense for them to be read in. As a result, one of the first volumes to be published deals with the aftermath of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' and the much less prominent ''Literature/ShadowsOfTheEmpire''; another one takes place right after the formation of the Galactic Empire and opens with the conclusion of Sagoro Autem's story arc that had begun during the Separatist Crisis. In both cases, the previous parts remain out of print for the time being.
** Their ''Epic Collection'' line, which prints entire runs of books from the company's fifty year history, makes a point of mentioning that collections are '''not''' released in order, so don't fret that The Amazing Spider-Man jumps from the 1960s to the mid-90s.

* Creator/MarvelComics:
Creator/MarvelComics's ''Epic Collection'' line reprints runs of titles from all over the company's fifty-year history, and makes a point of having a disclaimer stating the books are '''not''' released in order, in case you're wondering why ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' jumps from Vol, 1 to Vol. 17. Additionally, it focuses on more obscure runs than the well-known milestones, which is why major stories like ''The Night Gwen Stacy Died'' aren't the first ones out of the gate.

* Before ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' was a thing that happened, AndrewHussie made at least three ''Webcomic/SweetBroAndHellaJeff'' comics as part of a discussion on the ''PennyArcade'' forums; when they went up on the newly-established ''SBAHJ'' site months later, they were in a different order from the order in which they were made. The [[FirstInstallmentWins famous]] [[MindYourStep stairs]] comic, the first in the site's order, was the third made; the actual first made was the IBangedYourMom comic, the second in the site's order.

* Speaking of {{Nelvana}}, their dub of ''VideoGame/{{Medabots}}'' at first skipped some {{Filler}} episodes to get the first two "arcs" of the series to fit in a 26-episodes season (in the Japanese version, the arcs took 39 episodes). After deciding to dub the rest, such episodes were inserted as the first episodes of "Season 2". Lots of [[ContinuitySnarl continuity headaches]].

This is occasionally [[JustifiedTrope justified]], or at least understandable, if a recent event or tragedy might make airing the episode so close to it be TooSoon.

Not to be confused with AnachronicOrder, in which the writers ''intended'' for it to be this way. Also not to be confused with the common plot device for a PottyEmergency or [[JustifiedTrope justification]] for a ForgottenSuperweapon. Often a symptom of being ScrewedByTheNetwork.

[[IThoughtItMeant This trope has nothing to do with the "functional" variety of "out of order"]]; for tropes to that effect, see PhlebotinumBreakdown, HolodeckMalfunction, PlotDrivenBreakdown and FailsafeFailure.

This Often [[ExecutiveMeddling executives do this]] to make an ActionPrologue, using it draw in an audience for better ratings, while ignoring how many people desert the series later. Occasionally this trope is occasionally [[JustifiedTrope justified]], or at least understandable, if a recent event or tragedy might make airing the episode so close to it be TooSoon.

This trope is often a symptom of being ScrewedByTheNetwork. When the writers ''intend'' for a series to be this way, it's AnachronicOrder.

*** actually the ordering to Torah, Nevi'im and Ketuvim, is itself ''newer than they think''. The Tanakh was only Canonizide in the first or second century. The Christian Order is based on that of the Septuagint, the greek translation that was composed in the 3rd century BC.

* During the pre-cable and kayfabe eras, where the internet was still things of science fiction, many title changes weren't aired on television until several weeks -- sometimes six weeks -- after they happened, but the former champions will continue to defend their titles until the title change airs on television. One frequently cited example is Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard, the WWF Tag Team Champions, losing to Wrestling/{{Demolition}}, at a television taping in early October 1989, but the title change did not air until November 4 of that year, but the two continued to defend their titles (usually against Demolition but also the Rockers and the Hart Foundation) in the meantime.
