*** The only plausible in-universe explanation would be that revengeful Palpatine actively destroyed any vestige of the Jedi Order. Like, with big artillery. It means all the holocrons and any document dedicated to Jedi in the whole galaxy were burnt, every talk about Jedi was forbidden on penalty of death, probably some scholar people who knew too much were killed or had the relevant memories erased, and a heavy imperial propaganda pretended that Force use was just a magic/technological trick. In this case, and if Palpatine could really control all the information of the Galaxy, the Jedi may have become, within a generation, a vague memory of a far past, and within two, a pure legend. Thanks to the two idiot recluses, as well as the heroic team of the second trilogy, who just left the thousand year old memory of the Jedi wither out of existence.

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is usually pretty good with character continuity, but in the ''Signs'' review, he dismissively calls Shyamalon's character "Ma-Ti", when Ma-Ti's death in WebVideo/SuburbanKnights was a DespairEventHorizon for him that led into a sadder year and WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee.

** 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 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.''

* ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' has quite a number of continuity snarls as the series went on. For example, when Kenshiro's adoptive brothers were first introduced, Kenshiro initially mentions that none of them are actually blood-related. Later it turns out that the eldest two, Raoh and Toki, are blood-related after all and we are shown the ruins of their childhood home along with the graves of the birth parents. This can be handwaved by the fact that Kenshiro wasn't exactly sure himself. However, it later turns out that none of them were even born in Japan at all, but that the three of them were refuges from the Land of Asura and that Raoh and Toki's mother is buried in a swamp. If that wasn't enough confusion, then comes the prequel ''Manga/FistOfTheBlueSky'', which shows that the baby Kenshiro was born in Japan.

Kenshiro's adoptive brothers were first introduced, Kenshiro initially mentions that none of them are actually blood-related.

If that the above situation wasn't enough confusion, then wasn't confusing enough, along comes the prequel ''Manga/FistOfTheBlueSky'', which shows that the baby Kenshiro was born in Japan.Japan, wait no, now it's China.
** A more minor error is Toki being consistently shown with white hair during the Shura arc's flashback sequences, all of which are set when Toki and Raoh were still kids. However, the previous four seasons established and maintained the fact that Toki's natural hair color is brown, and it only became white as a result of being exposed to high levels of radiation as an adult. This one could possibly be handwaved as the work of hair dye, assuming that there Shura had any at the time.

* May or may not be only in the AnimatedAdaptation of ''LightNovel/KyouranKazokuNikki'', but Kyouka complains to Ouka that he never told her about something as amazing as christmas and, more to the point, getting presents. However this comes up after an episode where Ouka and Kyouka were already officially married for one year, which means they somehow skipped another Christmas entirely for this to make sense.
