Sometimes can overlap with ContinuityReboot in some ways, although a Continuity Reboot will often wipe out ''all'' of the current story and goes back to square 1; a Story Reset only wipes it back so far to a particular point saying previous stories are still cannon and can sometimes cause RetGone when characters introduced after a certain point are no longer present.

So you have a comic or a novel that you just published and you reached the third sequel but now you hate everything about the second book, what do you do? Well a Story-Reset of course! This trope is used often to do a ''SoftReset'' of current events in order to do them over or change the outcome of the 'current' time line.

This trope is used often to do a 'SoftReset' of current events in order to do them over or change the outcome of the 'current' time line.

This trope allows you to go back a few pages or even a novel or two and rewrite the story after it has already been seen or published and either replace it with a brand new story or a change the original outcome while not being forced into doing a full ContinuityReboot. Basically keeping the previous stories and merely changing/rewriting the most current.
