* From a Q&A Session during a Game Reboot, ''videogame/LeisureSuitLarry'' creator Al Lowe stated the reason behind skipping number 4 in the series was because of flippant comment that the first 3 games didn't need a sequel. This turned the marketing into making "game 5" and referencing the "lost" 4th game as "Leisure Suit Larry 4: The Missing Floppies" both in-game and out. The new games, and the VGA rereleased 1st game, sold much better than the original trilogy.

* When an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' had Sonic confronted by Mark the Tapir, an obsessive fanboy of the blue hedgehog, many fans realized the character's designs and quirks were almost point for point the same as Christian Weston Chandler, the infamous creator of ''WebComic/{{Sonichu}}'', thinking the writers were making fun of ''him'' and his odd obsessiveness with the franchise. The writers have gone on record stating that it was complete coincidence that Mark resembled Chris-chan and nothing more.

* Creator/ButchHartman stated in an interview that the ghosts in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' are really monsters from a different dimension, that is [[PhantomZone the Ghost Zone]]. Explains why they can have offspring and apparently age, but doesn't explain why some were once human to begin with. This contradicts some of the actual dead ghosts in the series. However, Danny's mom once described them as something like "ectoplasmic manifestations of post-human consciousnenss", which implies that they're simply monsters that ''think'' they're dead humans (link: http://web.archive.org/web/20140910231400/http://mysite.verizon.net/zcat6/IntBH2006p4.html).

A number of people [[FanonDiscontinuity reject]] the notion of Word of God being equal to canon, considering something to be {{canon}} only if it appeared in the original source material. If the creator had wanted a certain fact to be canon, the thinking goes, they should have included it in the work to begin with. Other audience members go even further, considering the uncertainty and ambiguity of canon to be a ''good'' thing and decrying the Word of God as shackling the imagination and interpretations of the fans. This latter attitude has some advocates in literary criticism: Wimsatt and Beardsley's "The Intentional Fallacy" and Barthes' DeathOfTheAuthor essay both argue that the interpretation of a work cannot be limited to attempts to discern the "author's intentions."
