* In the finale of ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'', no explanation was given for how Kendrix was restored to life. (Admittedly, no-one had ever directly stated she had been killed, although it was pretty obvious; the actress portraying her had to leave [[RealLifeWritesThePlot after being diagnosed with leukemia]], and the writers felt that they were safe with such an option, given the almost universal positive response to [[spoiler:Zordon's HeroicSacrifice in the previous series]].) There was a lot of speculation among fans, like that the Saber had something to do with it, but nothing definite.

He does try to explain how he recovered, but considering he's telling the end credits]].

** Comicbook/{{Ultron}} is destroyed near the end of Season 2 after plunging into the sun. He returns in Season 3 after A.I.M. comes into possession of his remains. It's never explained how A.I.M. got a hold of him or how there was anything left of Ultron to begin with, since, to reiterate, '''[[OnceMoreWithClarity he was thrown into the sun]]'''.

* ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'':
** In ''Comicbook/NewAvengers'' #26, Clint Barton wakes up at the Avengers Mansion after M-day. This doesn't explain surviving the exploding Kree ship in ''ComicBook/AvengersDisassembled''.
** Jack of Hearts appears in ''ComicBook/AvengersDisassembled'', and explodes. This should be consistent with his prior appearance in ''Avengers'' vol 3. He was about to explode from an overload of Zero Energy, but was leaving the Earth at that time, not trying to go back to it.
