** '''Chloe's mother:''' Chloe woke up one morning at age five to find her mother inexplicably gone and her father "trying to make waffles" (''Lineage'') vs. Chloe, at around eight or nine, comes home to watch her mother get carted off by the Men In White. (''Progeny'')
** '''Chloe and Smallville:''' Chloe moved to Smallville (or any rural place, as she though farmer Clark "was Amish") for the first time when she was thirteen (''Obscura'') vs. Chloe lived in Smallville early enough to have been affected by the meteors, allowing her meteor-mutant-controlling mother to accidentally control her and leave for Chloe's safety. (''Progeny'')
** '''Lex's Mother:''' Lex's mother was a redhead, as supported by his genetics (Lex has naturally red hair), Lionel's apparent infatuation with redheads (Lillian, Pamela from ''Crush'', Rachel Dunleavy from ''Lineage'', Martha Kent), show creators' confirmation that Lionel likes redheads, and that she appeared as one in ''Lexmas'', vs. Lex's mother was a brunette and Lex dated women based on her. (''Bound'')
** '''Clark Leaving Krypton:''' Clark's parents both sent him off to earth (''Memoria'') vs. Clark sent himself off to earth via some twist in space and time, and his parents were no where to be seen. (''Apocalypse'')

** 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.)

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]].

* The comic book ''{{Strangers in Paradise}}'', in Vol. 3 issue #43, presents us with both an actual and a ''metafictional'' rewrite: [[spoiler:It apparently takes place years later, when Francine and Katchoo are an elderly couple with a daughter named Ashley. Ashley has submitted a novel to a publisher, which turns out to be the story of ''{{Strangers in Paradise}}'' itself, and the publisher suggests a rewrite to make it flow better. After some minor outrage from Francine and Katchoo, they back the idea of a rewrite to make it more true to the "love story" aspect of their history, and the issue ends with the phrase, "End of Version 1."]] In the following issues, we see different takes of [[spoiler:Francine revealing her first pregnancy,]] finally resolving in [[spoiler:Francine going back to Katchoo]], causing the rewrite to morph into a "saving throw" of removing a flash forward plot-thread from the start of volume three of the series where it's revealed that Katchoo and Francine had broken up and not seen each other in years (changed to several months and due to Katchoo being caught in bed with Casey). [[spoiler:David's death remains intact however.]]

*** This does not, however, clarify why one of the surviving main characters was talking about Malcolm's funeral arrangements.

*** This does not, however, clarify why one of the surviving main characters was talking about Malcolm's funeral arrangements. It does make the exact words, "They won't let us bury him", hilarious in retrospect though.

* ''{{Smallville}}'' does this with character backgrounds and attributes. It's so blatant that it makes one wonder whether the writers/producers are just too damn lazy to go back and re-watch episodes or look up information on their characters on one of the many, many, ''many'' online databases documenting every character, in detail, from the main cast to the most throwaway guest star, or they're hoping ''viewers'' have poor recollection of the events and ''they'' won't go back and look. Or, ViewersAreMorons. For example:
