* The Exile in ''[[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Knights of the Old Republic 2]]'' is canonically female, which caused an outcry among fans, since the Handmaiden romance was far more interesting and rounded than the alternative. This was ''likely'' in response to the angry response in making Revan canonically male, despite Female Revan fanfic and fan art having a 5:1 ratio over male Revans. Making the whole thing clear as mud is that while Leland Chee (the canon keeper of the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse) declared the canonical genders of male Revan and female Exile, WordOfGod from BioWare and Obsidian was the ''opposite.'' Obsidian's own trailer and promo art refer to Exile as "he" while David Gailder of BioWare went on fan boards and admitted he viewed the character of Revan as female, even writing an epilogue of sorts. For good or ill, it's the verdict from LucasArts that stands. Years later, Creator/DrewKarpyshyn (who wrote KOTOR 1 and created Revan) permanently defined the character as a man in his novel ''Revan''.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' story writer Greg Farshtey kept a good relationship with the fan community. Not only did Greg provide Word of God for any question a fan might have had, but he sometimes distributed advance information and occasionally allowed fans to influence minor details, with "Sure Why Not"? Around the time the franchise ended, Greg wanted and give the fans more of a say in where the story should go, but his newborn child kept him from this, and later LEGO adopted a rule that forbid him from talking to fans online. However, they still let him occasionally use the official LEGO message boards to answer fan questions.

* Masaki Kajishima, the original creator of ''TenchiMuyo'' and the main writer for the ''Ryo-Oh-Ki'' {{OVA}}s (even called "Kajishima canon" in Japan), is very fond of releasing tie-in novels, factbooks, doujinshis and other infodumps, where he explains his [[TheVerse 'verse]] in more depth -- mainly because he couldn't readily obtain funding for the next series, but still has something to say. These infodumps are generally treated as canon by Japanese fans, but tend not to appear in the West. Basically, these are the things that Kajishima ''will'' make canon if/when the copyright holder (AIC) greenlights more [=OVAs=]. Until then, he's left in the unusual circumstance of essentially writing fanfic about his own anime.

* The developers of ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' are quite involved on the forums, along with a [[https://talk.turtlerockstudios.com/groups/developers/posts handy way]] to filter out their posts. While a lot of that is in regards to gameplay, several pieces of information are only known due to their interaction. Of particular note is [[https://talk.turtlerockstudios.com/users/matthew/activity Matthew Colville]], the lead writer, who has revealed several key facts.
