** Ash being declared to be 10 years old by the narrator at the start of the Best Wishes series is this due to the Movie three short, in both versions, declaring Ash and Pikachu to be celebrating an anniversary of when they first met. Scaled in a year (with some fans arguing if it was the first year or second year due to conflicting sub and dub comments in previous episodes).

* ''Anime/DragonBallGT'':
** In the second season, Trunks is able to detect No. 17's Ki, and is even able to compare it with that of No. 18... despite the fact that a major plot point in the background of the two androids when they were first encountered back in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' was that they didn't radiate Ki at all!
** When facing Rilld, Son Gohan transforms into a Super Saiyan... Despites being the "Saikyou no Senshi" and having his fighting capacity maxed at all times.
** A [[GrandTheftMe Baby possessed Gohan]] seemingly vaporizes Piccolo and Goten. However both later appear unharmed episodes later.



* 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.

* The Franchise/StarWarsLegends:
** ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' is supposed to be preceded by ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' and ''Literature/LabyrinthOfEvil''. Both are supposed to take place simultaneously in some coherent order, yet both contain scenes mutually exclusive to each other, necessitating MergingTheBranches for both stories to work. Both works were then [[ContinuityReboot relegated to the Legends continuity]] and replaced with ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''.
** ''Literature/LabyrinthOfEvil'' itself claims that before discovering an image of Darth Sidious within Nute Gunray's mechno-chair, the Jedi believed he was a lie, invented by Dooku to lead Obi-Wan astray on Geonosis in ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'', and not mentioned since. But in ''Yoda: Literature/DarkRendezvous'', Dooku names Sidious as his master openly to Yoda. {{Continuity Nod}}s to ''Dark Rendezvous'' appear elsewhere in ''Labyrinth of Evil'', yet this discrepancy is not explained.
** Dac or Mon Calamari? {{Retcon}}ned as Dac being the indigenous name for the planet.
** The ''ComicBook/MarvelStarWars'' comics introduce us to "your father, Darth Vader, and Obi-Wan Kenobi." Also, Obi-Wan has black hair. The actual phrasing was "Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, and the man who carried Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber," certainly implying Anakin and Vader are two different people. In one of the deftest {{RetCon}}s in the Expanded Universe, an author was able to use a ''pre-existing'' [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Concordance_of_fealty Jedi ritual]] to justify the man carrying the saber as a third, distinct Jedi who had swapped sabers with Anakin at the time.
** Chewie only having one son when WordOfGod says Wookiees have multiple births. And six breasts. Considering [[DeathWorld Kashyyyk]], it might just be infant mortality.

* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}''
** The original intro of the story involves Takua summoning the Toa in their canisters to the island. He got blasted into the sky to witness six metal capsules descending form the "heavens" and landing in the sea, then drifting to the island shores. Later material explained that these canisters had been floating in the ocean for a thousand years before Takua attempted to do this.
** Another example is what the Order of Mata Nui reported about Karzahni. In their book, they write about how he is amassing an army in his own realm to lead them into battle. When Karzahni reappears in the story, he reveals he's been following the Matoran who later became the Toa Inika ever since they had gotten away from him, so he would've had no time to train any army.
** When the Rahkshi attack Ta-Koro in the movie ''Mask of Light'', Tahu, the village's protector, boldly shouts "None have breached Ta-Koro's gates before! And none shall this day!" Except that the previous set of baddies, the Bohrok-Kal ''have'' broken into the village and defeated Tahu himself, ''right'' before the movie's story.
** Some scenes of the second movie, ''Legends of Metru Nui'', are at odds with the novels' and comics' stories. One of the more notable issues is Matau learning that his blades double as wings. In the movie, everyone is surprised when they activate and save him from plunging to his death, but according to the comics, he has already used them for flight earlier.
** The comics leading up to the third movie, ''Web of Shadows'', didn't want to spoil Vakama's betrayal, and so showed him leading his team into the Coliseum to clash with the villains. Yet in the movie, we learn that Vakama, having become evil due to the villains' influence, was in the Coliseum the whole time, waiting for his former comrades to try and take him back.
** The book ''Tale of the Toa'' was written without the ''Mata Nui Online Game'' in mind (which at the time had been considered non-canonical), but it had some issues of its own. In the comics, the fact that the Rahi beasts have to be defeated by taking off their infected masks is common knowledge from the get-go, but in the book, which was written in accordance with the comics, this is only discovered halfway through. Other parts of the book were later also {{Retcon}}ned to better fit in with the timeline and accommodate the events of the ''Online Game''.
** The online animations and the book ''Makuta's Revenge'' offer differing accounts on which Bohrok-Kal stole which Toa Nuva symbol. Usually the former is seen as more canonical. The mini-comic in the toys' instruction manuals contradict both, making it an example of AdvertisingOnlyContinuity.
** Makuta's narration in one of the 2003 comics claims he's been hiding for years after his 2001 defeat. Later on, the writer established that the entirety of the 2001-2008 storyline (barring the 2004-2005 flashbacks) took place within the span of a single year. Of course, Makuta might just be BreakingTheFourthWall here and meant "years" in real-life terms.

*** 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 let the thousand year old memory of the Jedi wither out of existence.
*** That said, those "idiot recluses" were specifically going into hiding, to protect themselves and those children: far better to be forgotten as members of a mythical order, than remembered as the members of a recent group the totalitarian government is actively hunting. By the time the original trilogy is done, only one force user remains [[spoiler: and we know (as of Force Awakens) that they did indeed attempt to revive the Jedi order]].
