* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'': In episode 21, the [[RunningGag "Krillin Owned" meter]] hits 13 when Krillin is unable to look away in time from Burter and Jeice's "Seizure Procedure" technique. It hits 13 again two episodes later when Krillin is slapped by Captain Ginyu-in-Goku.

* At the end of ''Infinity War'', it was explicitly stated that the Infinity Gauntlet could never be used again, as Eternity placed a restriction on the Infinity Gems that prevented them from working in unison. Inexplicably, the Gauntlet was shown to work again in ''Comicbook/NewAvengers: [[Comicbook/TheIlluminati Illuminati]]'', and the whole restriction idea has been ignored by all subsequent writers.

* In an issue of ''ComicBook/AlphaFlight'', speedster Northstar is suffering from a disease since Pestilence, that storyarc's bad guy, kissed him. Problem is, said kiss won't happen until the following issue. (Northstar's illness was originally intended to be AIDS, because, you know all gays have AIDS, and you can get it from a kiss on the forehead.).

* In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Captain Ginyu returns and mentions as having been on Earth as the Namekian frog. That means that he must have been on Earth when it was destroyed by Kid Buu. Apart from the fact that he couldn't have been revived by Namek's Dragonballs (as they wished for only whose who are not evil to be resurrected), it makes no sense he wouldn't mention being killed in his backstory or why he would be restored in the Namekian frog's body.

** A third is the perception of Jedi between the first and the two trilogies. In the original (Eps. 4-6), Jedi were considered the stuff of myth and legend and The Force "an ancient religion." The prequel trilogy (1-3) showed the Jedi as hundreds strong, with hundreds, if not thousands more in training. They were front and center in the Clone Wars (which the people of the original do remember clearly). They were involved in Republic politics. People knew of them. One of Palpatine's first acts as Emperor was a speech denouncing the Jedi as traitors and usurpers who had to be put down. Somehow, in the two decades plus between the two trilogies, Jedi have gone from "the Texas Rangers" to "The Knights of the Round Table". Thirty years later, it is apparently as old as Ancient Egyptians or, say, Neanderthals, because old Han Solo heavily insists that it is entirely true, the Jedi and the Force, so it is supposed young characters Rey and Finn only heard of it as fairy tales. For a futuristic universe where average lifespan of a human is more around 100 years, you could say Star Wars people have goldfish memory.It would be as if people in RealLife today didn't believe TheVietnamWar actually happened. It makes even less sense when you factor in that the (now non-canon) Extended Universe made Han Solo old enough to likely remember the Jedi as an active force and ''Revenge Of The Sith'' had Chewbacca ''fighting side by side with Yoda.''

** In ''VideoGame/UltimaIX'', the Tapestry of Ages depicts is supposed to depict the previous ''VideoGame/{{Ultima}}'' games. It is said to have magically painted itself throughout history as the events unfolded, yet no such tapestry can be found in earlier games. The visual depictions are not accurate to the details of each story. The tapestry is meant as a reminder that the Avatar visited Britannia on eight occasions, once for each main entry in the series, ignoring how the Avatar was not on Britannia in ''VideoGame/UltimaII'' and ''VideoGame/UltimaVIII'', and remained on Britannia in other games.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': The most powerful techniques used by an Uchiha depend on the state of their eyes - when Sasuke [[spoiler:was going blind due to over-using his Mangyeko techniques]], those techniques deteriorated and vanished as a result. However, in the end of the series, [[spoiler: [[BigBad Madara]] continues to use these same techniques despite having no eyeballs whatsoever]], frustrating fans who were hoping that this character [[KarmaHoudini would get some comeuppance]].

** On fillers going against canon, episode 481 depicted Neji without his curse mark prior to his father's death. The manga however showed that he received it on Hinata's third birthday. The succeeding episode also has an inconsistency with Sakura. It shows Sakura telling Ino that she likes Sasuke when they're alone in her secret hideout, however the manga and previous episodes showed that they were with other girls on the playground when that happened.



** The third episode of the XY series claims that Meowth can't translate electric shocks between Pikachu and Dedenne; but Meowth had no problem doing so between Pikachu and Zapdos in ''Anime/Pokemon2000''.
