** It was lampshaded when Tommy's old teammate Adam came by and mused on "it's really hard to imagine him as a teacher."

** Though less dramatically, Frank West in ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom: Ultimate All-Stars'' and ''Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3'' are not the same character. He still behaves the same way and his moves still fit the ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' setting he's from but the actual attacks are different and he has to approach the fight differently from ''[=TvC=]''.

* The ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'' underwent a soft ContinuityReboot for ''VideoGame/SpyroAHerosTail'', with many characters remaining from the Insomniac-era games, but altered heavily, alongside new characters; however, only one other game, ''VideoGame/SpyroShadowLegacy'', was released in that continuity before Creator/{{Sierra}} decided to start fresh- in came ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'', which eventually got replaced by the not as Spyro-centric ''VideoGame/{{Skylanders}}''.

** Seems to have come in full circle, because Phoenix is the protagonist of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', [[HesBack and yes, he's a lawyer again.]] For the most part, he seems to have kept the mature, mentor personality, but his inner monologues reveal that sometimes he can be as clueless as his rookie partners.

* A central theme of the ''World End Economica'' visual novel trilogy by [[LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf Isuna Hasekura]] is the changes made to the setting and characters in the {{Time Skip}}s between each of the instalments. In each episode, the characters look and act noticeably different and more mature. This is especially notable in Haru, the protagonist, who goes from an overambitious and bratty teenager to an almost emotionless adult after [[spoiler:Barton's betrayal leaves Haru two million [[WeirdCurrency mools]] in debt, and everybody he worked so hard to protect homeless, permanently shattering Haru's dream]] at the end of episode.01.

* [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Jill Valentine]] manages to do this in a non-storyline way in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3FateOfTwoWorlds''. In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'' she was still wearing her STARS uniform and was able to do things like a flaming dash and summon zombies, birds, and a Tyrant for her Hyper Combo. Come ''[=MvC3=]'', where she came in as DownloadableContent, she was modeled after her appearance in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', where she was under Wesker's control. As a result she fought like an acrobatic assassin, using things like sommersault kicks and attacking with her Skorpion submachine gun. The two ''Marvel vs. Capcom'' iterations of Jill are completely different from each other with zero overlap, essentially making them two distinct characters in the same series of games.

* Superboy-Prime in DCComics was introduced during ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' as an AscendedFanboy from the real world (or what was closest to it) who became Superboy during the Crisis. He finally went to a better place with the original Superman and Lois. He was brought back much more recently... as an insane StrawFan villain.

* ''{{Hollyoaks}}'' introduced Sonny Valentine as an angry teenager who was involved in petty crime, though not really a "bad" person at heart. When his actor was fired, Sonny was written out by having him leave to move in with a random aunt. Seven years later, he was re-introduced with a new actor who [[TheOtherDarrin looked nothing like the original]], and with a new personality: a brooding but charming CowboyCop, similar to his brother Calvin. It was later revealed that Sonny had been scheming to murder the [=McQueen=] family (since Theresa [=McQueen=] had killed Calvin) and take Calvin's widow and daughter for himself - also out of character in contrast to the previous Sonny, who hadn't been too bright and preferred to solve his problems with a fist fight.
