* ''FanficPokemonNovaAndAntica'' is actually a rewrite of a different fanfic entitled ''Pokemon Story 2: The Great Adventure''. The basic premise is the same, but if you endeavor to peek in the original version (it's accessible on FanFictionDotNet), you'll see that... it was for the best.

* The ending of ''StarWarsRebelAssault'' deliberately rewrites the ending of ''ANewHope'' so that player character Rookie One and his wingman Ru Murleen are the ones who destroy the Death Star, instead of Luke Skywalker. Rookie One fires the missile that travels down the exhaust shaft, and many more fighters are seen to survive the attack (at least seven fighters in ''Rebel Assault'' compared to the three fighters from the film).

* 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.

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.
