* In ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', the episode "Total Rickall" has the family become infested by alien parasites that breeds via fake memories and take the form of wacky characters. This starts off with CousinOliver parodies such as Uncle Steve and Cousin Nicky and eventually spirals into the house being filled with all sorts of fantastical characters. Most prominent is Mr. Poopy Butthole, who is not only there from the start, but is also edited into the intro similar to Larry as pictured above. Eventually they realize that the parasites can only create happy memories and that the real ones are the people they have horrible memories of. [[spoiler:Mr. Poopy Butthole turns out to be real, but gets mistaken for a parasite and shot because he apparently never wronged anyone in any way. He survives, but [[PutOnABus never appears in the show again]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' the Prophets were treated this way for people who didn't read the books, where they had already shown up several times. This is justified by you not getting a good look at the inner workings of the Covenant in the [[VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved first game]] (though its [[Literature/HaloTheFlood novelization]], released between ''Halo 1'' and ''2'', did show that a Prophet was indeed attached to the fleet hounding you).
** As were the Engineers in 2009's ''VideoGames/HaloWars'' and ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'' - while they had already shown up in ExpandedUniverse material from the very first book onwards, and were even originally planned to be included in the first game, those entries were their first actual in-game appearances.

** Series prequel ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' introduced the Skirmishers, a LightningBruiser cousin species to the Jackals, who were never fought in the previous games. The given explanation by {{Creator/Bungie}} was that they were wiped extinct by the carnage at the Fall of Reach, though this didn't explain why they didn't show up in media taking place chronologically ''before'' the first game like the aforementioned ''Halo Wars''. And again, this original explanation was retconned away as later works showed that there were still plenty of Skirmishers around long after the Fall of Reach.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'' does this with Bebe [[spoiler:a.k.a. Charlotte/Nagisa]], Mami's pet witch. Mami claims to have adopted her long before meeting Madoka and Sayaka, and that they were inseparable ever since; but Bebe appeared only briefly in the original series, when she [[spoiler:literally ''bit Mami's head off'', and then got blown up by Homura]]. She was never Mami's pet before the movie, but none of the characters can remember her being anything else. [[spoiler:It turns out that Homura has manipulated the memories of most of the cast, including herself, and "Bebe" is only the tip of the iceberg.]]

Though WordOfGod has said the the time travel in '''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' has made the [[Film/XMenTheLastStand third]] and fourth movies [[CanonDiscontinuity non-canon]], which could mean the same for X-Men 2.
