Is there a term for fanon that is written partway through a work's run cycle, then debunked when that work continues and the canon takes it in another direction entirely?

The term is "Jossed".

Also see "Fan-Disliked Explanation" and "Continuation" under "Alternate Universe Fic".

The main page is Fanon Discontinuity but the subpages are just Discontinuity. What gives?

Would an inversion of this be canon discontinuity that fanon considers canon? And are their any examples after this?

That would be Fanon + Canon Discontinuity.

From the page linked: "This is an audience reaction trope about a fan response to works of fiction. It is not a place to get into a discussion about claims that people make about history."

and so on, when actually I think it was intended to be like this:

emphasis on the slash after the "Fanon Discontinuity" topic.

Care to fix that please? I tried to edit the page, and it sends me to uncanney valley, where I'd rather not do anything, so I'd probably end up screwing the page.

The current page quote doesn't really describe this trope that well, being more a joke about Comic Book Guy treating his comics as Serious Business rather than providing an example of a person refusing to talk about a Dork Age or a bad sequel or pretending it never happened.
