* Creator/AAPessimal expanded a couple of Assassin characters who only existed in ''{{Discworld}}'' canon - apparently - as bit-part players and cameos who were no more than a one-line name and job description. The character expansions were done based on shrewd guesses and extrapolation. Later information not available to him at the time (the canonical ''Assassins' Guild Yearbook'') carries sparse information that Terry Pratchett's interpretation of the characters was somewhat different. The 'personality'' of Madame Deux-Epées is broadly correct but the portrait of her is of a woman of different physical appearance to Pessimal's description, for instance. And far from being young and "South African", as intelligent extrapolation suggested, Miss Smith-Rhodes turned out to be a dour middle-aged spinster in a mob-cap who teaches Domestic Science. WordOfGod is that pessimal prefers his own interpretations and that it's too late to change, although aspects of Madame Deux-Epées' canonical back-story have been Retconned into the Pessimal Discworld.

The introduction of a CousinOliver or LongLostUncleAesop is often a {{Revision}}, while ChuckCunninghamSyndrome is often a rewrite. [[TheOtherDarrin Another Darrin]] may be either or both. If it happens InUniverse, it is [[OrwellianEditor Orwellian Editing]].

If the previous story is literally rewritten to match the new version of events, it's an OrwellianRetcon.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: Tale of the Toa'', the climax involves the titular Toa heroes defeating their evil shadow clones through OpponentSwitch. Later material changed this to them absorbing their doubles into themselves upon realizing that shadow is a part of their being -- which was allegedly the original plan for how the scene should play out. The book was also wildly inconsistent with other media (for example, the ''actual'' climax in which the Toa face the BigBad is ignored entirely), so rewrites were necessary to tie the story into the overall mythos.

Added DiffLines:

* The author of ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'' wasn't entirely satisfied with his story, so he published a rewritten version a while after completing the original fic.

** This began in ''T3'', Where John says he was 13 years old during the events of ''T2'', when he was meant to be 10 ([[DawsonCasting although the actor was 13]]).
*** Which would make Sarah 16 in the first one (at one point in T2, the police say she's 29; it's already hard to believe she's 19 in the first.)
