Broad Strokes is a concept regarding canon where the writers pick and choose what elements of an older story they want to accept into a more recent story. It could be that the overall story is intact but the specific details are changed, or that the story is ignored but the details introduced within are still being worked with. This is most often used when parts of the official canon or even basic continuity cannot be reconciled as they stand.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Long-Runners whose Universe Bible has a progressive, "under-construction" aspect usually apply this. It assumes that viewers understand that there are mistakes in basic canon, at least early on when the canon was still being defined. The exact degree to which this is used can vary: Sometimes it just ignores single lines that contradict later canon. Other times entire stories are declared Canon Discontinuity but still certain elements influence the new story. This can even happen with a Continuity Reboot, usually because the base story is kept intact.
Usually, this is so people can ignore things. Maybe everything sucked for a while, a Story Arc would have been alright if it wasn't for that one incident, a character gets a bit ridiculous, etc.
At other times it is implied without being explicit. The TV show has a whole different cast from The Movie... yeah, we know they look different but just accept that they are the same people in The Movie. An Expanded Universe story hasn't ever been mentioned but it still could have happened. The adaptation doesn't explicitly contradict the primary canon. The sequel game contains elements from many of the mutually-exclusive paths of its predecessor. Expect some guessing about how some of these things can possibly be reconciled.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Funnily enough, due to the way fandoms think and how some similar works leave things open ended, there are times when two shows that were never meant to be connected are glued together by the fans. The most extreme version of this can be assuming a character is a Time Lord.
Similar strategies are used involving straight adaptations in relation to the source material. Convoluted backstories usually don't amount to much with the needs of a standalone project, so ideas and characters are jettisoned or combined to make a more cohesive narrative that follows the original in spirit. Other times following the source too closely will just fall into the Continuity Snarl that already exists in the original, thus utilizing Broad Strokes is an element of a Pragmatic Adaptation.
On a more fundamental level, the use of this trope is important for the sake of maximum creative freedom. It is surprisingly easy to limit yourself when you never expected to go beyond a pilot episode or a standalone movie. Then when fleshing out a character you find that giving them a powerful story arc requires contradicting earlier backstory or behavior to make it work.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })Compare Fanon, which is about unofficial canon or Alternative Character Interpretations, Loose Canon, which is about storylines that fit in the canon for all intents and purposes, but aren't explicitly stated to be so as they're meant to be experienced separatedly from the main story, and Schrödinger's Canon, for supposedly canonical adaptations and spinoffs that keep clashing with the primary work. See also Alternate Continuity, Negative Continuity, Filler Arc, Comic-Book Time, Depending on the Writer, Literary Agent Hypothesis, Sequel Reset, and The Stations of the Canon. Fan Wank is a common result of continuities with this attitude.

Police, Camera, Action! did this in its 2007 Retool (a quasi-Continuity Reboot), with elements from older episodes and older police clips rarely present or even mentioned, and newer footage, and a Continuity Nod to the 1994-2002 series every now and then.

The Terminator franchise have a good number of sequels and spin-offs that don't quite align with each other. But since Time Travel is a major plot instigator, this is embraced as part of the Timey-Wimey Ball and each new story just does its own thing while lightly implying events of previous films. Exact dates for Judgement Day have changed, along with the actors, and other events both happen and not happen. More specifically:
Terminator Salvation takes a broad strokes approach to the third movie, seen as Fanon Discontinuity to many, with the only clear reference to it being that Kate ended up as Connor's wife and the Terminator fuel cells. Even still, there weren't any explicit references to Terminator 2: Judgment Day (except the Guns N' Roses song). The impression was that it was meant to be that you could watch the original The Terminator and then this movie without any gaps.
You can look at the movies as various timelines surrounding the events of the Skynet takeover and the life of John Connor. The idea is that every time a person or a Terminator is sent back in time, the resulting timeline is slightly different, and each movie could be a glimpse at one of the timelines. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles hints at this idea, with characters from the future who knew each other in the future finding that the memories of one character before they traveled to the past are not consistent with the memories of another character.
Terminator Genisys also takes the TV show's approach of differing timelines, starting from the events of the original and taking a wild tangent from there (though elements of the second one, such as the T-1000, still show up, and "Pops" basically becomes the T-X from the third after he Came Back Strong from the Final Battle). This is was made clear by the fact that the meeting between John Connor and Kyle Reese was completely different from the one in Salvation.

Tomino's Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: A New Translation trilogy also counts. Events still more or less occur over the movies (and a good deal of the bloodshed retained), but the details of which are altered. The most significant being Kamille surviving the ending in one piece.

After years of fan demand, the show hinted that the Nerd was going to finally review the infamous E.T. on Atari 2600, but for copyright reasons, a generic stand-in called Eee Tee had to be used instead. When the review segment was later re-edited as a normal episode, the real E.T. game was swapped back in, with no in-universe explanation for the change.

Pretty much the general view point of Innortals original fics in The Infinite Loops, thanks to his rather unique sense of humor. General view point is that the original loopers went a bit nuts thanks to loops, but eventually managed to reel themselves back in outside of a few exceptions, and even then they're not as bad as how Innortal portrayed them. Even then, debates on which of Innortals snippets are canon to the setting as a whole is still heavily debated in the community to this day.

Taken further with the later additions of Rescue Bots and Robots in Disguise, vastly Lighter and Softer than the Video games and Prime series, and the Transformers Go Anime note Although the Japanese-made Go has yet to gain official recognition by Hasbro, and was made completely by the Takara end of the franchise..

The 2011 version of Ruse is the only Marvel Crossgen title to be a continuation, rather than reimagining, of the original CrossGen book. Except that while the original Ruse is in continuity, all the CrossGen-background stuff isn't, with the book being relocated firmly to Victorian England, rather than a world in the CrossGenverse that happens to resemble Victorian England, and all Sigil-related subplots excised.

The consensus about the Angel comics is that Angel: After the Fall, which Joss Whedon was involved in, is canon, but the subsequent stories he wasn't involved in are broad strokes at best. For example, a Spike miniseries told the origins of Spike's spaceship from the canonical Buffy Season Eight comics, but can be disregarded apart from those details. The implication that Spike's soul isn't his own and Drusilla's brief bouts of sanity and soulfulness? Never happened.

Blade: The Series took place after Blade: Trinity, but changed it so that the Daystar virus, an attempt at killing all remaining vampires in one fell swoop, wasn't as successful as indicated in the movie, as made evident by there still being at least 12 houses of vampires still active.

Star Trek: Enterprise was a prequel where they were making up elements of what happened before the original series. Time Travel was introduced as a sort of handwave that these events did not come about in that exact way originally. And there is also the changing dynamics of visual designs to consider.

Although that particular point may be explained by Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. If you assume that Metal Gear 2 bio was written based on the Big Boss from the original Metal Gear, and that the medic's injuries didn't cost them their eye until part way through their coma...

Sonic the Hedgehog:
Many of the games in the series (outside of the story-arc -driven Adventure era games) tend to have light continuity between each other at best. Kevin Eva, who was the community manager of Sega Europe in the mid-2000s, claimed the reason for this is because Sega and Sonic Team like to play fast and loose with what's considered canon or not in the series, and that what's considered canon or non-canon can and has frequently changed over time, hence why Sega and Sonic Team are so vague and indecisive over the series timeline.
Sonic Adventure 2. The game has one story, which you can play from the good side or dark side. Whichever side you're on, that team has to succeed in everything they do. So the outcome of a fight between, say, Sonic and Shadow, differs depending on whose side you're on. Although, besides the fights between good and dark characters, the story of both sides happens in parallel ways and fits perfectly, which is why both can lead to a "Final Story" without much problem. Most of them make sense on both sides. Tails and Eggman's first fight ends with Eggman retreating. Even on the evil campaign, it's implied Eggman had to retreat because of him (due to a little trouble). Sonic and Shadow never finish their first fight (they are interrupted by Eggman saying the island's gonna explode), and Knuckles and Rouge's fight ends with Knuckles saving Rouge from lava, no matter whose story you play. It's the last two that change the story (though even in the second battle between Tails and Eggman on the hero's side, Eggman successfully gets away with the Chaos Emerald that Tails had, and we never see what happens with Sonic and Shadow's final fight other than Sonic placing the fake emerald into the core, which may or may not have happened).

Deus Ex: Invisible War does this in regards to the ending(s) of the first game. There were three possible endings to the game, and rather than pick one as canon, they instead hint throughout the game that all three occurred, to one degree or another.
The same thing most likely occurs in reverse in the prequel, Deus Ex: Human Revolution. No matter which ending the player chooses, all of them will lead to the events of the original game, and many aspects of the world in the original can be extrapolated to be results of any of the four prequel endings.

Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation was implied to take place after the live-action TMNT film series by New Line Cinema, as evidenced by Splinter missing an ear and the Turtles living in a subway station as in the second and third films. However, the Shredder is still alive, Michelangelo uses tonfa instead of nunchucks, and April O'Neil and Casey Jones were not only absent, but had no indication of existing at all.

The TV show tends to take this approach to the many different strands of the Doctor Who Expanded Universe that have shown up over the years. Elements from the comics, books and audio plays have worked their way into the TV show over the years, both in the form of direct and indirect references. But it's also made abundantly clear that there's no formal or official canon, and the TV show is in no way beholden to anything from the expanded universe. Most particularly, the TV show will cheerfully contradict points from the Expanded Universe, delete painstakingly constructed canons with a single line of dialogue, and even remake entire stories first told in the expanded universe as if they were happening for the first time.

Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow can be seen as a Broad Strokes sequel to the Ultimate Avengers movie, as Black Widow is stated to have been a founding member of the team and Captain America's wife (the two dated in the Ultimate movies, but not the comics) and The Wasp's son appears to be Asian (the Ultimate Marvel version of Wasp is Asian as opposed to white). However, other than that, there are some inconsistencies, such as the Avengers being seen wearing their classic costumes in Flashbacks rather than their Ultimate outfits, as well as the fact that Giant-Man (the father of Wasp's son) died in the second Ultimate Avengers movie.

When Justice League first started, the creators said to not take everything of the past three installments (Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond) as cemented canon, because they didn't want to worry about detailed continuity that fans would complain about. At one point, Bruce Timm even mentioned that they planned on ignoring Kyle Rayner's guest appearance in Superman: The Animated Series because they didn't want to confuse people who would wonder why a completely different Green Lantern was being used in the new series. But by the second season, they turned back on that stance and told some stories that continued past events, and by Unlimited they had a couple of Batman Beyond appearances, as well as a guest appearance from Kyle.
Batman The Animated Series is split into two sections, marked by a massive storytelling difference and design change. While the first section is the most loved, continuity for later shows streams mostly from the second section. A case in point, Zatanna showed up as a past love interest for Bruce and she was just a normal stage magician whose father taught Bruce how to be an Escape Artist. She later shows up in Justice League with actual magical powers.

Transformers: Devastation seems to take place in the same universe as the original cartoon, between Season 2 and The Transformers: The Movie—yet a number of details are drawn from elements that are outside the cartoon and would even contradict it, such as Megatron and Motormaster's alt-modes being based on their Combiner Wars toys, hence the former being a tank as opposed to a gun and the latter just the cab of a tractor-trailer, not the whole thing; the characters of Nova Prime and Jhiaxus being part of the backstory for the game; and Unicron having his now-traditional origin (starting with the Marvel comic series) of being a God of Evil and his hatred for Primus, as opposed to his original origin in the cartoon of being built by Primacron.

Unlike the first two Lyrical Nanoha movies (which were In-Universe retellings of the first and second seasons), Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection is an original story that draws characters and plot points from the Gears of Destiny PSP game (along with weapon designs from Force). Whether or not it's supposed to be canon with the main series is unknown, though the companion manga does make several Call Forwards to StrikerS.

Reimagined Enterprise: There are various comparisons that can be made to the canon Star Trek: Enterprise despite almost all the details being different: Captain Hwai's grandfather was involved in the development of the warp five engine, just as Archer's father was; there are characters called Travis Mayweather and T'Pol, though the actual people are quite different; the first episode involves first contact between humans and Klingons; and so on.

In the run-up for Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles, Harmony Gold decanonized all of the material which had been produced for the franchise outside of the original series. As illustrated in the comic-book prequel Robotech: Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles, their new stance appears to be that the events covered in things such as the Robotech: The Sentinels comic book still occurred in some manner, unless they're contradicted by the newer material.

Generally, the DC Animated Universe is this in relation to the comic book universe, and vice versa. Unless otherwise revealed, a character's origin is meant to be the same as the comics.
When Justice League first started, the creators said to not take everything of the past three installments (Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond) as cemented canon, because they didn't want to worry about detailed continuity that fans would complain about. At one point, Bruce Timm even mentioned that they planned on ignoring Kyle Rayner's guest appearance in Superman: The Animated Series because they didn't want to confuse people who would wonder why a completely different Green Lantern was being used in the new series. But by the second season, they turned back on that stance and told some stories that continued past events, and by Unlimited they had a couple of Batman Beyond appearances, as well as a guest appearance from Kyle.
Batman The Animated Series is split into two sections, marked by a massive storytelling difference and design change. While the first section is the most loved, continuity for later shows streams mostly from the second section. A case in point, Zatanna showed up as a past love interest for Bruce and she was just a normal stage magician whose father taught Bruce how to be an Escape Artist. She later shows up in Justice League with actual magical powers.
Static Shock was originally in a universe with Superman as a fictional character (making reference to his alter-ego of Clark Kent). He later had several in-continuity DCAU crossovers and eventually an appearance in Justice League. Static also had another example when he first meets Batman and wonders where Robin is. Batman answers that he's with the Teen Titans, a Shout-Out to a show that was airing at the same time but otherwise had no other reference in the DCAU proper.

Highlander generally accepted the ideas from the movie — including the existence of Connor MacLeod (who appeared in the first episode), the events in the first movie, and the general nature of Immortals — but dropped elements that wouldn't work in a TV show, such as the Gathering already having happened and there being no more Immortals. It actually shifted over the course of the series; in the beginning it was set up as an immediate prequel during the early stages of the Gathering, which is why there are randomly so many Immortals showing up in one area, but this element was quietly dropped.

Dragon Ball:
There are several instances in the Dragon Ball anime where they started adding to the mythology because they Overtook the Manga. Master Roshi once gave an origin story to the Dragon Balls that dealt with ancient wars being fought over a single powerful dragon ball and how a mighty hero split it into 7 so that their power wouldn't be easily misused. A few sagas later the manga introduced the creator of the dragon balls, Kami, and gave the official origin that had nothing to do with the one Roshi told. Most fans take Roshi's story as being the one Shrouded in Myth, something that was made up over time.
The Dragon Ball Z movies tended to take everything up to a certain point in the timeline (wherever the anime was at when the movie was released) and made up their own story some time after the current events have concluded. After the fact only a few can fit into the very linear narrative of the anime without issue, and those require some wiggle room (Raditz's arrival coincided with Krillin even learning of Gohan, otherwise The Dead Zone fits in nicely right before the series began).
Dragon Ball Super:
This series adapts the basic events of the canon movies Battle of Gods and Resurrection F, but with some minor changes and tweaks to the storyline. Both versions are canon, with the version that is the "true" canon being left up to fan preference, as none of the changes have any long-lasting impact on the storyline.
Super also counts certain parts of anime Filler as canon, despite being an official continuation of the manga. Specifically, it incorporates filler that was not excised from the Re-Cut version Dragon Ball Kai, such as the subplot of Ginyu switching bodies with Bulma.

Used in Trigun when Yasuhiro Nightow began incorporating elements of the anime's early episodes that were not adaptations of early manga stories. References to these episodes, such as gigantic thug Descartes being held prisoner from a past incident or the gunsmith who's fallen into depression and begun drinking, pop up during the Maximum portion, though some of these would have to have a different canon than the anime. The biggest of these would be Meryl and Milly's involvement, as they appeared in all those early anime episodes and in the very first ones didn't even know who Vash truly was, while in the manga the two learn his identity almost immediately after their first encounter with him.

The manga adaptation of Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z began In Medias Res and gave the impression that the same events that created the girls and their enemies in the anime happened, but Mojo Jojo and Princess were the only Powerpuff Girls villains that appeared in the manga and one chapter was a condensed adaptation of both episodes featuring Miyako/Bubbles' boyfriend Takaaki.

Reginald Hudlin's Black Panther run was originally supposed to be a self-contained Reboot of the character's origin, but proved popular enough that it was extended into an ongoing series and incorporated into the mainstream Marvel Universe. While certain parts of it remained canon (namely T'Challa's previously unseen little sister, Shuri), others, such as Klaw's radically altered origin, were rendered Canon Discontinuity.

A Frozen Heart is a novelization of the film Frozen, told in alternate views of Princess Anna and Prince Hans. However, several aspects in the book don't match with the film, from certain events playing out differently, such as the Duke's henchmen using actual bows as opposed to crossbows, or Hans at one point grabbing Elsa by the arm when trying to convince her to bless his and Anna's marriage. However, despite the makers of Frozen have not yet admitted the book, or any book or comic set after the film, is canon, fans still accept it as such, since it goes into the backstory of Prince Hans to learn why he turned evil.

Many plot elements from Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops were contradicted in the succeeding PSP entry in the series, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker as a result of Hideo Kojima's minimal involvement in the former. The general plot of Naked Snake forming FOXHOUND to take down the FOX unit and Zero gaining the missing half of the Philosophers' Legacy to form the Patriots, are still considered canon, but the ICBMG built by Sokolov is no longer considered the first Metal Gear tank ever built, the funds for Army's Heaven that Snake obtained from Gene are never brought up at any point, and the sub-plot of Snake trying to overcome his grief for The Boss' death and accept his title as Big Boss is repeated in Peace Walker. About the only concrete reference to the events of Portable Ops is a line from Miller at the beginning celebrating that they can "finally leave all that crap in San Hieronymo behind".

Many newer series of Power Rangers seem to ignore or alter plot points from older series.
Serpenterra was portrayed in Power Rangers Wild Force. In the original series it was huge, with the Zords barely a speck compared to it. Forever Red makes Serpentera much smaller with it being only a few times bigger than normal Zords.
The same episode shows Bulk back on earth despite him last seen on the planet Mironoi.
The same episode also features several rangers activating powers powers that are supposed to be inactive such as Jason's Mighty Morpin powers and TJ's Turbo Powers. Some Fridge Logic may help explain why.
The Operation Overdrive episode "Once a Ranger" has Adam Park pull Alpha 6 out of storage despite him also being last seen on Mironoi as well.
Power Rangers Dino Thunder states that the Mighty Morphin team was Earth's first Power Rangers, Power Rangers Samurai, however features a team that has been active for 18 generations. They're not the only team to just be the current generation of a longer tradition; there's no reason the original Rangers should be considered the original Rangers in-universe.
Power Rangers Super Megaforce states that the armada attacked Earth with a ferocity never before seen ignoring Power Rangers in Space's finale that required a Heroic Sacrifice to stop the United Alliance of Evils invasion. However, the attack in the final episode does rival anything seen in the past, with the combined might of a galaxy-spanning force coming to our poor little blue marble to get rid of the Rangers once and for all (there's a reason it took every Ranger ever to come stop them.)
Speaking of the Legendary War, every team appeared because of the Rule of Cool, gleefully ignoring canon. How everyone could appear and who was in which suit in cases where it's ambiguous is the source of much Fan Wank. The Legendary Ranger battalion would have been a lot smaller if production hadn't ignored the fact that: SPD and Time Force hail from the future, RPM takes place in another dimension, The Aquitar Rangers and the Galaxy Rangers do not live on Earth, and the Zordon Era Rangers have more suits than wearers, and several series ended with the loss of their power sources.

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D takes this approach to the plot of the first movie in an attempt to bring its own story closer to the game series. There are references, connections, and even flashbacks to the first film's events, and a handful of returning characters, but numerous important plot details are changed or ignored. For example:
The evil cult's beliefs, symbols, and motives are completely changed from the first film to match the game cult.
The ending of the first movie is essentially ignored; Sharon and Dark Alessa are not merged, Rose is still in Silent Hill instead of at home, much (perhaps most) of the cult is still alive even though it was strongly implied they had all been massacred.
The main character's age is changed (the movie is set years later, but her change in age from the first film does not match the time span between the movies).

In Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, there were three companions Trevor could meet during the game. Grant Dinesti, Alucard, and Sypha. You could only have one companion with you at a time, and could only rescue two at most, due to multiple paths. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night implies that Trevor fought Dracula together with all three.

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie pretty obviously takes place in an Alternate Continuity from the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers TV show, outright contradicting it at times. The Rangers get their Ninja powers from Dulcea of Phaedos instead of from Ninjor, their original powers are taken by Ivan Ooze instead of Rito Revolto, their suits look completely different (they're bulky, contoured latex costumes rather than tight, sleek spandex), Tommy is implied to have been an original Ranger rather than a Sixth Ranger, and Rita and Zedd's forces are completely different (Squat, Babboo, and Finster are nowhere to be seen, and the Canon Foreigner Mordant has inexplicably joined their ranks). But in spite of all that, the then-current cast of the show is still in the movie, their Ninja powers incorporate the same pantheon of animals as the show, and there are enough classic supporting characters that it's largely the same story—give or take a few minor details.

The Discworld novels do this quite a bit. A good example is Sir Terry Pratchett's treatment of elves and gnomes. In the first book, The Colour of Magic, there's a brief mention of elves as just another fantasy race on the disc. Rincewind and Twoflower see one at a tavern with no comment. But in Lords and Ladies, elves are a dangerous and cruel race, so bad that they were sealed away in a parallel dimension and there is a real threat of them breaking back into the world. In The Wee Free Men, Tiffany Aching had to rescue a Duke's son when he was kidnapped by the elves. Similarly, gnomes first were mentioned as short people in pointy hats, and latter became very short, very violent Scotsmen known as the Nac Mac Feegle.
The continuity geek explanation is that "elves" in the early books are Half Human Hybrids ("a race o' skinny types with pointy ears and a tendency to giggle and burn easily in sunshine. There's no harm in them", according to Granny), and that gnomes and Nac Mac Feegle are related but different (as shown in I Shall Wear Midnight). The confusion was eventually explained away by the most prominent Gnome being adopted and biologically a Feegle.
The early books also used "goblin" as another gnome subrace, to the point that the Companion says "a gnome is a goblin underground, a goblin is a gnome that's come up for air, a pictsie is a gnome fighting". The introduction of an unrelated race of goblins in Unseen Academicals, and elucidated upon in Snuff would suggest that whenever you see the word "goblin" in the early books, you should pretend it says "gnome".

Total Drama World Tour seems to ignore a lot of events in the unpopular second season, including Leshawna's Odd Friendship with Heather, Beth's relationship with Brady and Courtney having alienated everyone with her Jerk Sue behavior. Furthermore they never even mentioned who won TDA, probably because the voting caused the results to split between different countries. The only event that seems to be firmly established is that Gwen and Trent broke up and that she and Duncan became friendly with each other.

Due to some lore and design inconsistencies with the previous games, Fallout Tactics is regarded as this by Bethesda. It's Broad Strokes canon in the opposite way to Van Buren though - the key events in the game's campaign happened, but the details are fuzzy. This was reinforced in Fallout 3 and New Vegas, which both include references to the player faction in Tactics, the Midwestern Brotherhood of Steel.

The stuff that happens in World of Warcraft tends to be applied to the background this way ("Some stuff is more canon than other stuff..."). For example, in the background Illidan got defeated by the forces of the Sha'tar and their allies (i.e. the players), not by 25 people from Epic Raid Guild 2000.
In general, Lore is the preferred term to "canon" among more mellow WoW fans. There's simply no way to make the early concepts fit neatly with the later ones. So it's enough to say that, like real history, it's interpreted with different points of view by different sides and cultures.
The very point of the novels Tides of Darkness and Beyond the Dark Portal was to rewrite the stories of the broad strokes Warcraft II and its expansion in a way that would fit with later games. The trend with ascribing player achievements to lore characters is there, though: Darion Mograine replaced the PC in the Ashbringer comic (along with some Argent Dawn red shirts for the attack on Naxxramas), and Varian Wrynn exposed and killed Onyxia in lore.
This is also the philosophy Blizzard used when re-making Draenor for the Warlords of Draenor expansion. The layout deviated from Outland rather significantly in a lot of places. Some of it can be explained by Outland being formed from an Earth-Shattering Kaboom of the prime timeline Draenor. But there are other areas that don't match up even taking that into account.
Comic character Med'an became such a hated character that Blizzard has all but erased him from canon, though events he was involved with still happened.

Even in regards to such a change there is still a certain consideration that the pre-time change Federation ship (the USS Kelvin) looks more advanced than the original USS Enterprise.

Kamen Rider Agito was originally written as a direct sequel to Kamen Rider Kuuga, but various concernsnote including a desire to avoid Continuity Lockout and Kuuga's writers complaining that it would render Godai's battles meaningless convinced the staff to change their plans. The show still has a few references (like the G-3 Powered Armor being made from data taken from "Number 4", the Tokyo Police's name for Kuuga), but they're vague enough that they can just be seen as Mythology Gags and the staff released an official statement basically saying "Whether Agito is a sequel to Kuuga or not is entirely up to you, the viewer."

Knights of the Old Republic has numerous references to the Tales of the Jedi era. Not only do Tales and Knights have totally different aestheticsnote Tales looks distinctly low-tech, while Knights resembles the prequel films that it was contemporary with but one of your party members spent his youth in the Tales era and talks about having a forbidden romance, despite Tales having not one but three Jedi romancesnote Nomi and Andur, Nomi and Ulic, Sylvar and Crado that were perfectly above board.
Star Wars The Old Republic Revan was released to bridge the gap not only between Knights of The Old Republic and its sequel, but to the spin off MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic also seem to forbid Jedi romances, as Revan and Bastila are more or less forced to leave the order because of their marriage.

Occurs in Grand Theft Auto during its transition from Grand Theft Auto III canon to Grand Theft Auto IV canon. While none of the former's main characters, storyline elements and location designs were carried over to GTA IV, fictional brandnames, vehicle designs, radio station personalities and minors backstories accumulated over the course of Grand Theft Auto III canon have been retained. This allowed the Rockstar North to easily write in entirely new storylines without the need for complete worldbuilding.

Following Flashpoint some of the pre-New 52 stories are considered to have still happened. The specific list includes The Killing Joke, the Green Lantern family during Geoff Johns' run (including Blackest Night), Grant Morrison's Batman, and some but not all of Brightest Day. A few background pictures also seem to mention that The Death of Superman also happened in some manner, but most likely not the way it did in the original universe.

The relaunch of Guardians of the Galaxy by Brian Michael Bendis and posterior works decided to do this in regards to Star-Lord's convoluted origin. Up until 2012, at least three diffrent origins existed for Star-Lord, so Bendis decided to redo everything taking the most important parts of the previous origins to make an updated and more appropriate version that would become the official canon origin for 616 Peter Quill, while the others would become alternate universes. Later, several bits from the other 70s stories were taken and incorporated to the origins and the regular series as well.

Resident Evil:
In Resident Evil, the player can choose from two main characters, Chris or Jill. Each character has their own partner who will help them out in escaping from the mansion (Barry assists Jill, while Rebecca helps Chris). Although the player runs into the other main character during the course of their mission, neither will encounter the other character's partner. In other words, Chris and Jill can escape from the mansion with Barry or Rebecca, but not with both, implying that one of them doesn't survive. However, the sequels establish that all four of them escaped from the mansion, which is impossible to achieve in the game.
Resident Evil 2 is structured in such a way that it had to be resolved in a similar fashion; to "beat" the game you have to play as both characters, and the two playthroughs will contradict each other no matter what. And you can choose the order of the playthroughs, and the order determines the plot (so you can have Claire A + Leon B, or Leon A + Claire B, and both are inconsistent). The "official" story is a mix of elements from all four scenarios, something that Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles tries to depict through a single scenario. The 2019 Remake also tries to streamline things by not having as many alternate scenes and having canon events referenced in later games, such as Sherry getting implanted with the G-Virus then getting injected with a vaccine, always take place. Even then, the two scenarios in the remake can't both be completely canon since the characters fight the same bosses and Annette has two different death scenes, making the canon events of the game still a bit murky.

The three trilogies published after that first series (Psi Corps, Legions of Fire, and The Passing of the Techno-mages) are certified canon. However, Legions of Fire places the launching events of Crusade a year later than the television indicates them to be.

While MSX games in the Metal Gear series, Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, did happen, the characters' recollections of the events in Metal Gear Solid and its sequels suggest that it happened rather differently to how it was actually presented - most notably, Big Boss' defeat. Metal Gear 2 has Big Boss's burning body stagger around the room screaming "It's not over yet!"; but in Metal Gear Solid, Snake says that Big Boss told Snake that he was his estranged father, and Snake was forced to deliver the killing blow knowing that. And yet there's still a Call-Back to the "It's not over yet" scene...
Many plot details from the original MSX games have been retconned since the original MGS, most notably Big Boss' bio from the manual of Metal Gear 2, which said that Big Boss lost his eye during the 1980s, was contradicted when he loses it in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, which is set in 1964.
Although that particular point may be explained by Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. If you assume that Metal Gear 2 bio was written based on the Big Boss from the original Metal Gear, and that the medic's injuries didn't cost them their eye until part way through their coma...
Many plot elements from Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops were contradicted in the succeeding PSP entry in the series, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker as a result of Hideo Kojima's minimal involvement in the former. The general plot of Naked Snake forming FOXHOUND to take down the FOX unit and Zero gaining the missing half of the Philosophers' Legacy to form the Patriots, are still considered canon, but the ICBMG built by Sokolov is no longer considered the first Metal Gear tank ever built, the funds for Army's Heaven that Snake obtained from Gene are never brought up at any point, and the sub-plot of Snake trying to overcome his grief for The Boss' death and accept his title as Big Boss is repeated in Peace Walker. About the only concrete reference to the events of Portable Ops is a line from Miller at the beginning celebrating that they can "finally leave all that crap in San Hieronymo behind".

Sonic Adventure 2. The game has one story, which you can play from the good side or dark side. Whichever side you're on, that team has to succeed in everything they do. So the outcome of a fight between, say, Sonic and Shadow, differs depending on whose side you're on. Although, besides the fights between good and dark characters, the story of both sides happens in parallel ways and fits perfectly, which is why both can lead to a "Final Story" without much problem. Most of them make sense on both sides. Tails and Eggman's first fight ends with Eggman retreating. Even on the evil campaign, it's implied Eggman had to retreat because of him (due to a little trouble). Sonic and Shadow never finish their first fight (they are interrupted by Eggman saying the island's gonna explode), and Knuckles and Rouge's fight ends with Knuckles saving Rouge from lava, no matter whose story you play. It's the last two that change the story (though even in the second battle between Tails and Eggman on the hero's side, Eggman successfully gets away with the Chaos Emerald that Tails had, and we never see what happens with Sonic and Shadow's final fight other than Sonic placing the fake emerald into the core, which may or may not have happened).

Jonathan Hickman's X-Men run is effectively a Soft Reboot for the X-Men and significant parts of the Marvel Universe in general. The narrative more or less picks up where Grant Morrison’s New X-Men and Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men left off, ignoring mostly everything that’s happened since 2008 (Xorn is alive and a hero again, Banshee is no longer undead, Cyclops is back to being a respected member of the superhero community, etc.). However, some elements that originated in that time are still around (Xavier is still possessing Fantomex’s body, Rogue and Gambit are still married, etc.), while a few other elements are kept but heavily reworked (the Decimation still happened, but it’s effects have been totally reversed and characters who died or lost powers during it are indicated to be alive and well). Outside of this, it feels like a total reboot and ignores just about all of the status quo changes from the post-Decimation period.

James Bond:
When Timothy Dalton took over the role of Bond: as he was about twenty years younger than Roger Moore, the events of the previous films (which had all been quite consistent up to then) were acknowledged to be canon in Broad Strokes but assumed to have occurred more recently than the 1960s.
Casino Royale (2006) was a clear reboot of the James Bond film series, even providing an Origin Story. But it accepted Judi Dench's M and her uneasy relationship with Bond, both features of the Pierce Brosnan Bond movies. Broad strokes of the Pierce Brosnan era's political landscape also remained ("oh, the Americans are going to be unhappy that we beat them to this!").

Ditto in Fable III, though it's not quite as justified. The protagonist's father (or mother) is explicitly said to be the hero from Fable II, though you don't get to hear much about what he/she actually did before becoming king/queen.

Resident Evil 2 is structured in such a way that it had to be resolved in a similar fashion; to "beat" the game you have to play as both characters, and the two playthroughs will contradict each other no matter what. And you can choose the order of the playthroughs, and the order determines the plot (so you can have Claire A + Leon B, or Leon A + Claire B, and both are inconsistent). The "official" story is a mix of elements from all four scenarios, something that Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles tries to depict through a single scenario. The 2019 Remake also tries to streamline things by not having as many alternate scenes and having canon events referenced in later games, such as Sherry getting implanted with the G-Virus then getting injected with a vaccine, always take place. Even then, the two scenarios in the remake can't both be completely canon since the characters fight the same bosses and Annette has two different death scenes, making the canon events of the game still a bit murky.

∀ Gundam is related to every other Gundam, including the Alternate Universe series, but the only thing we see for sure are blueprints from G Gundam and a flashback to Wing Zero. There's no indication what chronological order the AUs occurred in, and it's also vague if it's meant to only include series up to After War Gundam X or all of the AUs that came out after Turn A. At any rate, it's fairly implausible that the UC timeline and all of the AUs happened Turn A timeline exactly the same way as shown in their own series, as this would require implausibly long gaps between each AU for their events to be so completely forgotten in the next AU. As in, significantly longer than all of recorded history to date.

Mad Max: Fury Road shares the same basic concept and setting of the first three films—it's After the End in Australia, Max is a former cop, and his family were murdered—but according to Word of God is not in exactly the same continuity as them. If you've seen the original movies, the discrepancies are pretty obvious: Max still has his V-8 Interceptor in the opening scene (he lost it in The Road Warrior, and it was supposedly the last of its kind), there are apparently multiple flourishing post-apocalyptic civilizations in Australia (the original Mad Max took place Just Before the End), and Max's deceased child was apparently a young girl rather than an infant boy. The idea is that the whole series is in-universe folklore, written long after his real deeds have passed into legend.

Due to how unpopular among fans of characters involved in them both Avengers Arena and Avengers Undercover are, most of the books try to reference them as little as possible, mentioning only what is necessary (and even then mostly to undo what these books did) while sweeping as much as possible under the rug or describe the events in a way that for the unaware makes them sound like something else altogether. However, no book tried to directly say they didn't happen or not acknowledge deaths in the former had happened.

Terminator Genisys also takes the TV show's approach of differing timelines, starting from the events of the original and taking a wild tangent from there (though elements of the second one, such as the T-1000, still show up, and "Pops" basically becomes the T-X from the third after he Came Back Strong from the Final Battle). This is was made clear by the fact that the meeting between John Connor and Kyle Reese was completely different from the one in Salvation.

Macross Frontier probably takes the cake, and is what really brought this out from Shoji Kawamori. With multiple mangas, a series, movies, and novelizations (all of which have very different interpretations of events), this trope is finally what it came down to. Kind of a Take That! at how most media, while based on a real story, often take Artistic License. That is, if you believe him.

The Macross series does this constantly:
Word of God states that Super Dimension Fortress Macross is the canon depiction of the events of Space War 1; on the other hand, Macross: Do You Remember Love? is an in-universe movie and dramatizes the events seen in the TV series. This raises some questions because later Macross series take many elements such as the uniforms and the design of the SDF-1 Macross from DYRL instead of the original show, to the point where in Macross 7, one character from the original series, Exsedol Folmo, had his character design officially changed from the TV show's grey-skinned redhead version to DYRL's big-brained green-skinned version.
Macross Frontier probably takes the cake, and is what really brought this out from Shoji Kawamori.

Kind of a Take That! at how most media, while based on a real story, often take Artistic License. That is, if you believe him.
Macross Frontier's TV version has an in-universe nod to this: in one part, the characters are doing a Broad Strokes movie adaptation of the events from Macross Zero as part of the impetus that kickstarts Ranka's idol career.

The Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama rolls back a lot of the series' Continuity Creep to the base of Kim being a Teen Superspy but prone to peer pressure, Ron being her loyal friend and sidekick but a loser to the rest of Middleton, and Bonnie losing her sympathetic Character Development from season three to return to being Kim's bitchy school rival. This is at least partly because it's based on the script for an aborted live action adaptation, and because it was written almost entirely during season 1 and few changes were made afterwards.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has done this with its various incarnations of the Hulk. The Incredible Hulk is mostly a Continuity Reboot of Hulk, Edward Norton taking over the title role for Eric Bana, but it keeps details of the first film in broad strokes, such as starting out in South America, where The Tag of the first film left off. The Avengers (2012) does the same thing to The Incredible Hulk, replacing Norton with Mark Ruffalo but making references to some of the plot points of that film, such as "breaking Harlem." Further installments of the MCU films make more references to The Incredible Hulk, such as bringing back William Hurt as General Ross and showing a picture of Liv Tyler as Betty Ross.

Black Isle's version of Fallout 3, codenamed Fallout: Van Buren, was sadly canceled. Nevertheless, many events, characters, and plot points set to be in it were implicitly established as canon in Fallout: New Vegas. This is also how the game treats the actual Fallout 3, thanks in part to being set on the other side of the country - at the very least, it's established that the Lone Wanderer helped Moira Brown write the Wasteland Survival Guide with at least some success, since it shows up as a skill book in New Vegas
Due to some lore and design inconsistencies with the previous games, Fallout Tactics is regarded as this by Bethesda. It's Broad Strokes canon in the opposite way to Van Buren though - the key events in the game's campaign happened, but the details are fuzzy. This was reinforced in Fallout 3 and New Vegas, which both include references to the player faction in Tactics, the Midwestern Brotherhood of Steel.
Because of the multiple possible endings of Fallout 3, anything in Fallout 4 that relates to the Capital Wasteland are painted with broad strokes: for example, the beginning of Broken Steel did occur (a mission for the Brotherhood has you rebuild Liberty Prime), but any ending where the Brotherhood is destroyed did not, and Sarah Lyons did die at some point in the 10 years between games, but not much else is known.

X-Men Film Series
X-Men: First Class was supposed to be a Continuity Reboot, but the writers didn't want to go all the way, ultimately making it this trope.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is mostly treated as Canon Discontinuity in The Wolverine (for starters, the opening has Logan in World War II alone instead of accompanied by half-brother Sabretooth), except for some examples listed in Continuity Nod.
X-Men: Days of Future Past explicitly contradicts elements from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Word of God is that they were simply treating the movie as Canon Discontinuity. Despite this, a brief Flashback to the events of the film (Sabretooth crushing Logan's bone claws) is seen when the young Xavier reads Logan's mind. This presumably means at least some of that movie still happened.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is treated as this in Deadpool (2016). The two movies clearly take place in separate continuities, but there are also enough obvious parallels between the two of them that it can be assumed that at least some of the events of X-Men Origins still happened in Deadpool's past. Deadpool is still played by Ryan Reynolds, he definitely lives in the same universe as the X-Men, he has definitely met Wolverine, he has enough of a history with the X-Men that he's been invited to join the team numerous times, and he spent several years performing covert operations for a Special Forces team prior to the events of the movie. Deadpool definitely never had his mouth sewed shut by Weapon X, but he could conceivably have served with Wolverine and the rest of Team X during his time in the Special Forces. Note that the superhuman training program in Deadpool is never explicitly called "Weapon X,"note  Though a few writers and cast members have called it that in interviews so it technically doesn't contradict the detail about Deadpool first being recruited into Weapon X in the 1970s.
Logan still picks up some things from Origins - Wolverine's driver license has the name James Howlett, one of the mutants of the X-23 project has powers drawn from Chris Bradley's DNA, and an adamantium bullet is featured again - and downright reinterprets one of its elements with X-24, a Logan clone that deeply resembles that movie's Sabretooth.

A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge is considered by some the worst of the series, and its events are seemingly ignored in productions that followed - but elements introduced in that, such as Freddy retaining possession as a power and the Springwood Slasher nickname, appeared in the rest of the franchise, and Dream Warriors even follows the timeline set by it (Freddy's Revenge is five years after the original, Dream Warriors is six). Scenes from it are also used in the montages featured in Freddy's Dead and Freddy vs. Jason.
Dream Warriors and the subsequent sequels were perhaps written with the trope deliberately in mind. They don't really mention anything that happened in Freddy's Revenge (although the fact of Nancy being committed does figure into the proceedings in Dream Warriors) and yet they don't really contradict any of it either, and when in Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare Freddy says, "First they tried burning me...then they tried burying me...They even tried holy water!" this exact wording allows for "burning" part to refer either to Freddy's Revenge or to Nancy trying to burn him in the first film, or to his original death by burning when he was still human.

Spider-Man Unlimited premiered a few months after the end of Spider-Man: The Animated Series, with a somewhat similar art style (Unlimited was more comic-book like with yellow boxes used for location titling) and Unlimited began In Medias Res and a snippet of the STAS theme, which fans took as implying the events of STAS is in the past. That was never the intention and there are no specific story pieces that connect the two beyond Spider-Man himself. Even still, the first episode introduced elements that would be familiar to fans of the previous show but still irreconcilable from those events, such as Venom and Carnage being on Earth and working together. The misconception led to the Spider-Verse writer incorrectly treating the Spideys from STAS and Unlimited as being the same one, going from interviews.

A couple of writers in the Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Shards and Shadows collection slipped in elements of their earlier Mirror Universe work, despite contradictions. While differences in the Voyager characters mean nothing remotely resembling Dark Passions can have happened in the new shared Mirror Universe, regardless of Susan Wright referring to B'Elanna as having been Intendant of Earth at one point, the presence of Gerda Idun Asmund on a rebellion ship with Gilaad Ben Zoma in Michael Jan Friedman's story makes it fairly easy to slot in the Star Trek: Stargazer novel Three, with the only difference being that the rebel ship isn't called Stargazer (since that's the name of Picard's ship).
Since the continuity of Trek novels tightened up (around the year 2001-onward), broad strokes has been used quite a bit to keep older works at least partially a part of that continuity. Even within the new shared continuity, not every little detail adds up, but on the whole it works as one big, shared reality.

Stargate SG-1 did this with the original Stargate movie, mostly the primary concept of the Stargate, they encountered the people on the planet Abydos, they killed Ra with a nuke and Daniel stayed behind with his new wife before the series began. What they changed was the specifics of Stargate travel (the stargate doesn't reach across the universe, just the Milky Way galaxy), the nature of the aliens (parasitic snakes instead of The Greys wearing human suits) and the addition of a specific species name (Goa'uld). With many things, if it wasn't specified in the movie they were at liberty to make up their own canon. They also changed the name of Daniel's wife from Shau'ri to Sha're because Michael Shanks had trouble with the "au" diphthong and went with the Aliens Speaking English trope to avoid having Daniel translate everything to the audience. Lastly (and more comically), Jack O'Neil is now written Jack O'Neill, a fact that he references in the series multiple times.

In Resident Evil, the player can choose from two main characters, Chris or Jill. Each character has their own partner who will help them out in escaping from the mansion (Barry assists Jill, while Rebecca helps Chris). Although the player runs into the other main character during the course of their mission, neither will encounter the other character's partner. In other words, Chris and Jill can escape from the mansion with Barry or Rebecca, but not with both, implying that one of them doesn't survive. However, the sequels establish that all four of them escaped from the mansion, which is impossible to achieve in the game.

This seems to be Steven Universe’s attitude towards its Expanded Universe; stuff that originated in the comics or video games may be worked into the show proper, but the actual events of those stories may not have necessarily happened in canon, or happened in different ways. For example, Centipeetle offhandedly mentions that she served under a Hessonite during the Gem War, an idea suggested in Save the Light, but absolutely nobody mentions the events of that game or even indicate that its plot happened at all.

Mass Effect has most of its books written to allow virtually any set of choices from the games to be considered "canon". Fortunately, given its Canon Discontinuity setting, the third game did the same to the near-universally reviled Mass Effect: Deception, factoring in some of the events but avoiding any reference to growing out of autism or the many, many lore issues.

The proposed 1970s series Star Trek: Phase II was eventually reworked into becoming Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The plot of TMP was an expansion of the proposed pilot for Phase II, and the ending even has the crew set off on their next voyage. A dozen scripts were written for Phase II before the movie was greenlighted (one script being recycled for the second season of TNG), but none are considered actual canon since the series never came to light and the actual ensemble cast was different. Still, the time frame of Phase II and the adventures of the Enterprise are an established part of Trek canon, which fills in the gap between TMP and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

The very point of the novels Tides of Darkness and Beyond the Dark Portal was to rewrite the stories of the broad strokes Warcraft II and its expansion in a way that would fit with later games. The trend with ascribing player achievements to lore characters is there, though: Darion Mograine replaced the PC in the Ashbringer comic (along with some Argent Dawn red shirts for the attack on Naxxramas), and Varian Wrynn exposed and killed Onyxia in lore.

5 Centimeters per Second: The novel and manga share the same general outline as the film, but there are some elements that cannot be reconciled, like Takaki going back to Iwafune with Risa and amicably breaking up in person in the manga whereas in the film the former never happens and the breakup is via email instead.

The Force Unleashed has been praised for its involving storyline, but some people are uncertain about Galen being a God-Mode Sue able to pull down a Star Destroyer from orbit and almost defeat both Darth Vader and Palpatine in a one-on-one fight. Broad strokes can be used to accept the storyline but consider the more outrageous things Refuge in Audacity or Rule of Cool.
While we're at it, this is the official approach to continuity in both Knights of the Old Republic games — reference books paint them almost entirely in broad strokes, being vague about almost everything related to player choice except the protagonists' genders, which are selectable in the games but set in stone in canon. The canon version of the second game is actually impossible to reproduce in-game, since the canon Exile is female, but also recruited a companion only available to male characters.

G.I. Joe: Resolute also does this. The continuity is ambiguous enough that it could conceivably be a sequel to any of the prior series, but the Mythology Gags and finer details don't always match up with said series. For instance, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow are archenemies due to Storm Shadow murdering their teacher like he did in the Real American Hero continuity, but Resolute Storm Shadow has a completely different motive for it and isn't a Noble Demon like in RAH.

Fable II accepts the story of Fable I in broad strokes, though as it is set several hundred years later most of the details are obfuscated by the ravages of time and accounts are unclear (though, to be fair, Jack dies both ways). On the other hand Therisa is still alive, which contradicts the evil ending of the original game... but this is a High Fantasy game, so resurrection isn't out of the question.
Ditto in Fable III, though it's not quite as justified. The protagonist's father (or mother) is explicitly said to be the hero from Fable II, though you don't get to hear much about what he/she actually did before becoming king/queen.

The Punisher MAX by Garth Ennis contains characters and references from Ennis' earlier work for the character. However, MAX is in its own continuity devoid of superheroes while the previous run was firmly set in the 616 universe and featured appearances from SpiderMan, Daredevil, Hulk, and Wolverine. Broad strokes is the only way to make any real sense of it.

Fu Manchu is still the father of Shang-Chi: Master of Kung Fu, but since the Public Domain Character's name is still under trademark by the estate of Sax Rohmer, it has been retroactively turned into an alias (which had since been discarded in favor of "Han"), with his real name within the Marvel canon being Zheng Zu.

The New Edition Story mini series and its sequel, The Bobby Brown Story, have an odd, but justified version of broad strokes: To give all of the New Edition members equal screen time in the first mini series, a lot of Bobby Brown's wild behavior was toned down, and his marriage to Whitney Houston was mostly glossed over. This was rectified in The Bobby Brown Story, with the trade off of downplaying his beef with New Edition due to it already being covered in the prior series.

The Star Trek franchise has been subject to this many times.
Star Trek: The Original Series had some inconsistent terminology especially early on. The Enterprise is not a space ship, it's a starship. They use phasers, not lasers (even The Next Generation confirmed phasers were around before that time) and Kirk has traveled outside the galaxy and to the center of the galaxy with relative ease. An early episode suggests that the 18th century was 900 years before the series time. Every later work says that TOS takes place during the 23rd century.
Star Trek: Enterprise was a prequel where they were making up elements of what happened before the original series. Time Travel was introduced as a sort of handwave that these events did not come about in that exact way originally. And there is also the changing dynamics of visual designs to consider.
Star Trek (2009) branches to a different timeline, convenient for writers and viewers alike. Even in regards to such a change there is still a certain consideration that the pre-time change Federation ship (the USS Kelvin) looks more advanced than the original USS Enterprise. It is a similar dilemma that the show Enterprise ran into with Zeerust as a Cosmetically Advanced Prequel.
Star Trek Into Darkness changes the ethnicity of a character that would have existed before the timeline was split, although this has been explained by a non-canon comic as a Magic Plastic Surgery coupled with Laser-Guided Amnesia performed on Khan before he was awoken in order to maintain the ruse that he was a Section 31 agent named John Harrison.
Star Trek: The Animated Series was decanonized by Gene Roddenberry's office back in the 1980s, but since then, some Expanded Universe writers and the Enterprise team have allowed elements from the series to slip in to their works; this series is also the origin of Kirk's recognized middle name (Tiberius). The "holodeck" first appeared in TAS (although it was never called the "holodeck" specifically). It then went on to make its live-action debut in The Next Generation. Naturally, some people thought TNG was the first to introduce it.
Information about Spock's childhood from an episode of TAS ("Yesteryear") was also referenced in a TNG episode, making at least one TAS episode definitively restored to canon. Whether that implies anything about the rest of the series is anyone's guess.
Scenes from Spock's childhood as seen in "Yesteryear" were also seen and referenced in the 2009 film.
The proposed 1970s series Star Trek: Phase II was eventually reworked into becoming Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The plot of TMP was an expansion of the proposed pilot for Phase II, and the ending even has the crew set off on their next voyage. A dozen scripts were written for Phase II before the movie was greenlighted (one script being recycled for the second season of TNG), but none are considered actual canon since the series never came to light and the actual ensemble cast was different.

Kamen Rider series:
Kamen Rider Agito was originally written as a direct sequel to Kamen Rider Kuuga, but various concernsnote including a desire to avoid Continuity Lockout and Kuuga's writers complaining that it would render Godai's battles meaningless convinced the staff to change their plans. The show still has a few references (like the G-3 Powered Armor being made from data taken from "Number 4", the Tokyo Police's name for Kuuga), but they're vague enough that they can just be seen as Mythology Gags and the staff released an official statement basically saying "Whether Agito is a sequel to Kuuga or not is entirely up to you, the viewer."
Kamen Rider Decade is similarly about alternate universe versions of the previous riders. This justifies the use of different actors despite each Alternate Rider having a similar story to their original show's version: Alternate Kiva is, like the original, a Fangire royal who is uncertain about his role, but is a young boy instead of a Shrinking Violet twenty-something, etc.
The post-Decade Riders (W onwards) all take place in the same universe, although the only connections are occasional mentions of Foundation X and movie team-ups. It's never explained where exactly the year's worth of time-skip in Double fits in, or why none of the other Riders show up to help the current year's hero with the current year's apocalyptic scenario. The only exception is Build, and that's because the Sky Wall incident wouldn't make sense if it's put as a Hand Wave in the timeline of the main Kamen Rider universe.
Rider movies are another matter all together. Every Kamen Rider movie from Ryuki to Kiva is an AU version of the show, with the exception of the Den-O movies. From Decade on, the movies are canonical to their series - indeed, Movie War 2010 is the finale of Decade and has important backstory for Double, and Movie War Megamax is much the same for OOOs and Fourze. Although All Riders Vs. Dai-Shocker and OOO: Nobunaga's Desire themselves take a broad strokes approach to their shows again...

In the first season finale of Transformers: Prime they give some crucial backstory elements regarding Megatron and Optimus' history, how Megatron ended up turning Cybertron into a dead world and how Optimus received the Matrix of Leadership. Exactly as this trope works, there are timeline issues and details that are different but there was no mistaking the major events that were exactly the same as WFC.

Gundam
Tomino's Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: A New Translation trilogy also counts. Events still more or less occur over the movies (and a good deal of the bloodshed retained), but the details of which are altered. The most significant being Kamille surviving the ending in one piece.
∀ Gundam is related to every other Gundam, including the Alternate Universe series, but the only thing we see for sure are blueprints from G Gundam and a flashback to Wing Zero. There's no indication what chronological order the AUs occurred in, and it's also vague if it's meant to only include series up to After War Gundam X or all of the AUs that came out after Turn A. At any rate, it's fairly implausible that the UC timeline and all of the AUs happened Turn A timeline exactly the same way as shown in their own series, as this would require implausibly long gaps between each AU for their events to be so completely forgotten in the next AU. As in, significantly longer than all of recorded history to date.

This is how continuity works at best in the Command & Conquer: Red Alert Series. Which is also a source of many long-lasting flamewars about the games. Not helped by the whole repeated time-travel thing meaning that it is entirely possible for an event to both not have happened and have led to something in the game you are playing. Red Alert 2's expansion pack even has this happen in-universe, at least in the Allied ending, where they go back in time, beat the Soviets faster than they originally did, then go on to beat Yuri before he can enact his master plan, at which point the two timelines (the original game's and the expansion's) merge, creating some sort of mishmash where the Soviets were only just defeated, but General Carville (killed about two-thirds of the way through the original game) is still alive and Yuri is already in custody.

The Lost expanded universe, specifically 2006's The Lost Experience online viral marketing game and 2008's Find 815, are examples of this trope. Word of God says that basic mysteries answered by TLE, such as the number sequence 4 8 15 16 23 42's significance to DHARMA, and Find 815's explanation of how the fake flight 815 wreckage was discovered, are accurate unless otherwise contradicted by the show. However, the characters and plot of both games are non-canon.

Likewise, Superboy, as seen in his tie-in, is based on his late-90s interpretation, but possesses quite a few of his Kryptonian abilities that he never developed during that time. Also, he is flat out stated to be a Kryptonian-human hybrid, while pre-Titans story was that he was a human clone with Kryptonian engineering.

Much like the plot changes in Castlevania III, the Japanese version of Castlevania: The Adventure was established to be a prequel to the first Castlevania (in fact, Christopher was actually mentioned in the Japanese manual of the first game, where he was already established to be the last Belmont who fought Dracula prior to Simon), but the U.S. version seems to imply that the game is set after Castlevania II: Simon's Quest.

When Dollhouse creator Joss Whedon was told they needed an extra episode for the first season he quickly created one set ten years in the future, using flashbacks (via memories saved on computer widgets) to show how the events of the two times connected. He later commented at a convention that, in order to give the writers some flexibility, some of those memories might be fake or imperfect or just condensed summaries of important events, and indeed, the events of the second season show that at least some were unlikely or impossible, though at least one (Boyd and Claire's scene) was perfectly correct.

The various My Little Pony Generation 4 media have been described as having this, as the books, comics and cartoons don't necessary share strict canon. The show trumps everything else, and the show's writing staff may personally veto any comic plotline that IDW's writers want to put out, but otherwise there's no real collaboration. Pretty much necessary for a franchise with multiple writers and a general aversion to Executive Meddling.

Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm took this attitude towards the first live-action movie, which it was ostensibly intended to be a sequel to. There are references to the events of the film, such as Shang Tsung, Kano and the original Sub-Zero having been killed during the tournament, but the Flashbacks showing those deaths differ from how they were actually depicted in the movie (likely to tone down the violence). Another big difference is that Johnny Cage, who was one of the main characters in the movie, was never seen or even referenced in the cartoon. This was due to the show also drawing inspiration from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, where Cage had been killed off.

Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie coexists somewhat loosely with the web series.
The series sometimes breaks the fourth wall and acknowledges that the "Nerd" is just James Rolfe playing a character he can step away from, but the movie makes it clear that the Nerd is always the Nerd, on- and off-camera.
After years of fan demand, the show hinted that the Nerd was going to finally review the infamous E.T. on Atari 2600, but for copyright reasons, a generic stand-in called Eee Tee had to be used instead. When the review segment was later re-edited as a normal episode, the real E.T. game was swapped back in, with no in-universe explanation for the change.
Elements of the movie such as the Nerd's day job at a modern game store and his friend/coworker Cooper are never alluded to in the series, creating two subtly different interpretations of the Nerd as a character.

Dragon Ball Super:
This series adapts the basic events of the canon movies Battle of Gods and Resurrection F, but with some minor changes and tweaks to the storyline. Both versions are canon, with the version that is the "true" canon being left up to fan preference, as none of the changes have any long-lasting impact on the storyline.
Super also counts certain parts of anime Filler as canon, despite being an official continuation of the manga. Specifically, it incorporates filler that was not excised from the Re-Cut version Dragon Ball Kai, such as the subplot of Ginyu switching bodies with Bulma.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: Somebody asked Meyer how they would explain the new uniforms, and he said "We don't. The other film doesn't exist." Military services do change their uniforms, but in the end it came as an ultimatum from the cast who hated the over-engineered costumes of the previous film. The bridge design also changed dramatically, enough that it involves speculation that Starfleet ships come with a modulator bridge system and can just switch one out for a new one. Conveniently enough, this appears very plausible when examining the physical models of the ships.

Transformers: War for Cybertron and Transformers: Prime were both made under the idea of a single, ultimate universe for the Transformers franchise to work off the next 5 years. They were not meant to be a hard-and-fast canon working together but are taking specific sections of the classic Transformers lore (the war on Cybertron and the arrival on Earth, respectively) while going off a core backstory. There is a good deal of similar elements that connects them together but the fact remains that they were developed by two completely different production teams who gave the mythos their own flavor. Character designs, characterizations and the exact events that unfold (given that WFC should be in the distant past of Prime) vary to some degree.
In the first season finale of Transformers: Prime they give some crucial backstory elements regarding Megatron and Optimus' history, how Megatron ended up turning Cybertron into a dead world and how Optimus received the Matrix of Leadership. Exactly as this trope works, there are timeline issues and details that are different but there was no mistaking the major events that were exactly the same as WFC.
Taken further with the later additions of Rescue Bots and Robots in Disguise, vastly Lighter and Softer than the Video games and Prime series, and the Transformers Go Anime note Although the Japanese-made Go has yet to gain official recognition by Hasbro, and was made completely by the Takara end of the franchise..

Macross Frontier's TV version has an in-universe nod to this: in one part, the characters are doing a Broad Strokes movie adaptation of the events from Macross Zero as part of the impetus that kickstarts Ranka's idol career.

Star Trek: The Original Series had some inconsistent terminology especially early on. The Enterprise is not a space ship, it's a starship. They use phasers, not lasers (even The Next Generation confirmed phasers were around before that time) and Kirk has traveled outside the galaxy and to the center of the galaxy with relative ease. An early episode suggests that the 18th century was 900 years before the series time. Every later work says that TOS takes place during the 23rd century.

The Micronauts still occasionally appear in Marvel Comics as "The Microns". Since a large portion of the characters were based on licensed toys, those characters and past situations involving them are left unstated. The reappearance of the remaining characters is left unexplained since the last episode of Micronauts: The New Voyages gave effective closure for the characters (they died). Readers generally assume that since the Marvel Universe is composed of alternate realities, these characters are not resurrected versions of the ones in the 1979-1986 comics but alternate versions of the characters who may still pass as the originals on Earth.

The second game of The Elder Scrolls series, Daggerfall, has seven mutually exclusive Multiple Endings, depending on which party the Agent gives the Totem (control rod) for the Numidium. The next game in the series, Morrowind, reveals that the activation of the Numidium (a known Reality Warper) caused a Time Crash referred to as the "Warp in the West". Each of the endings of Daggerfall happened at once, though (in Broad Strokes fashion) none to the same extent that they would have individually. (For example, the four regional powers in the Iliac Bay expand, but none takes over the entire area, and all are still under Imperial authority. Mannimarco, the King of Worms, does ascend to become the God of Worms, but he's in a rather minor divine station, and a mortal (or at least as "mortal" as a Lich can be) King of Worms still exists, who leads a cult worshiping the God of Worms. The Underking still destroys the Mantella, and dies like he always wanted.) The whole process also somehow retroactively elevates Tiber Septim into a god on the same level as the Eight divines.

This is the standard for Touhou danmaku games. In each game you can only play as one character who investigates and solves the incident at hand. It's never made clear which heroine canonically solved each incident, and the side materials often treat the situation as if all heroines solved the incidents together.

True for a lot of characters tied to specific historical events. For instance, don't ever expect to see it mentioned that Sunfire's mother was supposedly present at the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, or that Storm lost her parents in the Suez Crisis in 1956.

Freddy vs. Jason: The movie takes this approach to both franchise's canons to make the match-up between its two villains possible. For Nightmare, Springwood was basically destroyed by the chronologically last movie and Freddy killed off (New Nightmare doesn't count as it's a Real World Episode plot). For Friday, Jason was either dragged off to hell after his body was blown up by the FBI or he was kept and cryogenically frozen and wound up in space. Instead, Springwood found a way to block off Freddy's access to their kids by shutting the whole thing up and Jason is buried somewhere in the woods around Camp Crystal Lake after his last outing (?). Also, Lori's house is implied to be the same house that Nancy lived in, and her mother was killed in a similar way to Nancy's mom, so the implication is that Lori and her friends were the first generation of teens previously affected by Freddy.

As a game with a 25 year running history of lore and stories handled by multiple creative teams, and a propensity for guest writers, Magic: The Gathering uses broad strokes for many older stories. The most observable examples are the limited run of Planeswalker-focused novels, Agents of Artifice, the Purifying Fire and Test of Metal. The first two are broadly canon, with many details and plot points ignored or dropped, but the third seems to be almost entirely non-canon, with only really the characterization of the main character Tezzeret being carried forward, and all the events of the book and the bits of lore it tried to invent being left behind.
The events of Agents of Artifice seemed to a roughly happened, as stories set afterwards acknowledge Jace running a much smaller cell of the Infinite Consortium and Tezzeret being a puppet of Nicol Bolas, but all the specifics seem to be alternately ignored or handwaved. Things like Jace's unexplained identical twin and the body-swapping shenanigans are roundly ignored, but the big ones are Jace's backstory (and how much he actually remembers) and the guild-less version of Ravnica presented in the book. When it came time for the main card game to re-visit the world, the book was roundly ignored in that aspect.
The version of Regatha and Keral Keep presented the Purifying Fire seem consistent in the broad strokes, but differ in the details. The main bone of contention is Chandra's backstory, which was revised in Magic Origins and her short story Fire Logic. Whether it has been honestly Retconned or she told an embellished/simplified version has not been addressed as of yet.

This has also been invoked since the EU was locked as the Legends continuity and rendered officially non-canon; creators of new official works are free to reference various Legends elements. Notably, this so far includes James Luceno's Star Wars: Tarkin referencing his prior fleshing out of a previously-mysterious villain's backstory.

Teen Titans aired alongside Justice League and was just similar enough in animation style and didn't share any characters that a lot of people believed they were meant to be in the same continuity. It was never the intention, and despite similarities in art style, Titans uses cartoony visuals and Face Faults, being far more comical at its core. It really didn't help in the Static Shock crossover with Batman: The Animated Series that Batman made reference to Robin being with the Titans, which otherwise had no other mention in the DCAU. Furthermore, this was in reference to the Tim Drake Robin, while the Teen Titans Robin was eventually confirmed as being Dick Grayson.
It also didn't help when JLU had a Mythology Gag guest spot by an older version of Mike Erwin's Speedy (complete with his Teen Titans costume), and then Titans had a similar guest by Michael Rosenbaum's (Kid) Flash. At that point it became obvious that Titans was set in the past of the DC Animated Universe. But still wrong.
Naturally, Glen Murakami has been asked to give Word of God on it, and his response has been a Shrug of God. It seems the intention was never "it's totally connected to Batman The Animated Series, taking place between seasons X and Y" or "they're different continuities, dammit, so get over it," but "We're just going to make our show, and we'll leave where/if it fits with some other to you." The rule with most fans on most boards these days seems to be that a show is considered to be not DCAU unless it's said to be, though, which leaves TT out.

In Mega Man Recut, "Future Shock" is this, with the time machine being replaced by chronitrons, Wily having/enacting a plan to win him the world on New Year's Day, and adding details of Wily's dystopia like everyone having an enforced silly accent.
"20,000 Leaks Under the Sea" turns the episode's giant squid into the Purple Devil.
Robosaur Park turns the devolving serum into Roboenza from Mega Man 10.
"The Mega Man in the Moon" reveals that the Emergency Scanner is actually Galaxy Man.
The episode order is changed a bit from the original show in order to provide stronger continuity.

The storyline of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is very similar to the backstory of A Link to the Past (And the GBA rerelease of A Link to the Past changed "Wise Men" to "Sages", further supporting this), the Adult Link ending in particular. However, it has since been established that the adult ending leads into Wind Waker. The official timeline in the 2011 encyclopedia book Hyrule Historia reveals that the imprisoning actually continues a version of the "adult timeline" where Ganondorf defeats Link (as opposed to Link defeating Ganon) and unites the Triforce (as with the child timeline, the full extent of these events is not depicted in the game), leading into A Link to the Past.
The creators admitted that a lot of details were overlooked in creating this official timeline, also admitting that the timeline presented in the book is replaceable as necessary.

The Super Robot Wars Z series plays fast and loose with the canon events of previous games. For example, it's stated that Shinn fought for Durandal to the very end, which occurs in the ZAFT route. However, Shinn also recalls the promise he made to Char to stop him should he ever try to enact the Axis Drop, which only happened in the ZEUTH route.

In the first game, Donald and Goofy didn't know what a keyblade is until they met Sora, as King Mickey gave them vague directions to look for someone with a "key". This doesn't make sense because it's highly unlikely that Mickey would have kept his own keyblade a secret from his best friends. Years later, the writers cleaned up the situation in the prequel Birth By Sleep, showing that Donald and Goofy were fully aware of Mickey's keyblade.

For the Showa Ultra Series, a canon timeline is... questionable, to say the least. The main shows all take place in one universe, but they have a tendency to not line up because of dating systems and general inconsistencies. In Ultraman Taro and Ultraman Mebius, the events of the shows happened "in real time", that is, the years the shows were released, however prior series took place 20 Minutes into the Future. Then there's the fact that Ultraseven wasn't even in the canon originally, and Ultra Q is still an oddity (it was referenced a few times in the original Ultraman, but that's it). And that's not even getting to Ultraman Geed, which Word of God states is set in the Showa universe, but that completely contradicts everything we've seen so far (though it's possible some kind of Cosmic Retcon may have occurred).

Whenever a character references one of their past adventures in Rakenzarn Tales, it's usually done in this manner, as the characters in this setting have lived in Rakenzarn all their life instead of the fictional worlds Kyuu knows them from. For example, Sonic did fight the Deadly Six at one point, but it took place in the Cyril Region of the Phantasma Continent instead of the Lost Hex.

Star Trek Into Darkness changes the ethnicity of a character that would have existed before the timeline was split, although this has been explained by a non-canon comic as a Magic Plastic Surgery coupled with Laser-Guided Amnesia performed on Khan before he was awoken in order to maintain the ruse that he was a Section 31 agent named John Harrison.

The Emperor's New School a Spin-Off of The Emperor's New Groove takes this approach regarding the film and its' Direct-to-Video sequel Kronk's New Groove. Certain things from the first movie are referenced in the series note  Kuzco used to be emperor, is friends with Pacha and his family, and Chicha gave birth to baby Upi. and others ignored. note  Yzma is no longer a kitten, Kronk is working for her again, despite his Heel–Face Turn, the secret lab is now located underneath the school rather than the palace. As for the sequel, about the only things it acknowledges is the design of Kronk's dad and the names Rudy & Matta for the nameless old man & waitress from the original.

The same thing most likely occurs in reverse in the prequel, Deus Ex: Human Revolution. No matter which ending the player chooses, all of them will lead to the events of the original game, and many aspects of the world in the original can be extrapolated to be results of any of the four prequel endings.

G.I. Joe: Sigma 6 supposedly took place after the direct-to-video CGI G.I. Joe films by Reel FX, particularly since certain circumstances hinted toward the events of Valor vs. Venom (e.g.: Cobra Commander being imprisoned and requiring the other members of Cobra to bust him out and General Hawk recovering in the hospital from an incident that had his DNA altered). However, many of the characters have noticeably different appearances and characterizations from how they were depicted in the Reel FX films.
G.I. Joe: Resolute also does this. The continuity is ambiguous enough that it could conceivably be a sequel to any of the prior series, but the Mythology Gags and finer details don't always match up with said series. For instance, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow are archenemies due to Storm Shadow murdering their teacher like he did in the Real American Hero continuity, but Resolute Storm Shadow has a completely different motive for it and isn't a Noble Demon like in RAH.

The Divine Divinity series plays very fast and loose with continuity, and the developers readily admit to that. For example, a major antagonist in Divinity: Original Sin II is Bishop Alexander, the legitimate son of Lucian the Divine, the protagonist of the original game, — except that there was no mention of Lucian having any children (let alone a son who took over the leadership of his Divine Order and attempted to become the next Divine himself) in Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga, which takes place 60 years after OS2 — not nearly enough for Alexander to have been forgotten by the populace at large. This is because when Divinity II was written, Lucian had no children, but when the plot of OS2 demanded an obvious successor to Lucian, the devs just retroactively added him into the continuity, refusing to be tied down by canon minutiae.

You can look at the movies as various timelines surrounding the events of the Skynet takeover and the life of John Connor. The idea is that every time a person or a Terminator is sent back in time, the resulting timeline is slightly different, and each movie could be a glimpse at one of the timelines. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles hints at this idea, with characters from the future who knew each other in the future finding that the memories of one character before they traveled to the past are not consistent with the memories of another character.

A peculiar example of this trope is Warhammer 40,000, a game whose Canon gets revised and adjusted pretty much every time a new source book is released, some of which also take inspiration from other media like novels or the Video Game series Dawn of War. Depending on the Writer, things that were known may stay the same, get fixed a little or are completely Retconned, with the most basic example being "This particular piece of technology has been used by [faction] for thousands of years, don't worry about it never showing up before at all." The biggest example is the background of the Necrons, which used to be one big Shout-Out to Terminator, but has since changed more towards "Undead Egyptian Space Robots with feuding dynasties". Also many things that were part of the game in earlier times have been quietly dropped completely. The official explanation for all this is "Everything is Canon, nothing is absolutely true".

Godzilla: King of the Monsters was a late 70s comic by Marvel which incorporated Godzilla into the main Marvel universe and used the general story arc of the 15 Godzilla films which had been released up until that point as a starting point. Godzilla first appeared in the 50s and menaced Japan for a while, but when stranger and more dangerous monster began attacking, he became a defender of sorts, then about twenty years after he first appeared, he mysteriously vanished. While the specific events presented in the comic's flashbacks never match up with what happened in any of the films, the basic story arc of Godzilla doing a Heel–Face Turn and then vanishing in the mid-70s remained the same. The comic speculates that Godzilla went missing at the end of the film series because he got trapped in an iceberg.

While sharing the same general outline in terms of plot, the events in the Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions anime differs in many aspects from the light novel it's based on — for example, while Rikka and Yuuta live in the same apartment complex in the former, in the latter they live in opposite directions from the train station. The production team admitted this much before the show even began airing though (see Adaptation Expansion).
This also include one-third of the anime's recurring cast being Canon Foreigners, and one of the other existing characters has given a backstory that retooled her intentions.

Masters of the Universe deals with Skeletor and his evil forces "finally" capturing Castle Grayskull (along with the Sorceress). For this reason, it can be said to be in the continuity established by the Filmation's animated series (which had just recently ended at the time), but with this trope in effect (after all, the movie doesn't have Prince Adam...).

This is the strategy the creators of Drowtales have taken to some of the older, pre-retcon information, specifically the contents of some sidestories. As far as anyone can tell the sidestories "Spiderborn" and "Rebirth" still happened and are still the canonical backstories of two characters, but some oudated worldsetting info (for instance, references to "Yatherines" aka drow priestesses) is no longer canon.

Serpenterra was portrayed in Power Rangers Wild Force. In the original series it was huge, with the Zords barely a speck compared to it. Forever Red makes Serpentera much smaller with it being only a few times bigger than normal Zords.

Doctor Who: Given the show's very long history and the various incarnations it takes over the years, the show often treats past episodes as canon only through broad strokes.
The TV film with Paul McGann takes some liberties with the mythology, such as the stuff about him being half human and actually snogging a companion for real. The McGann Eighth Doctor has been shown along with the other past ones, and Word of God is that something did happen in San Francisco in 1999 involving the Doctor and the Master — and that he said he was half-human, but that doesn't necessarily make it true. All onscreen evidence in the new series points to the Doctor being fully Time Lord. The comic "The Forgotten" has the Eighth Doctor say that he fooled the Master into thinking he was half-human with a half-broken Chameleon Arch, a few words, and a wide-eyed expression. A Chameleon Arch is a piece of Applied Phlebotinum the Tenth Doctor has used to become human temporarily onscreen. The new series has also explicitly shown the Doctor in romantic relationships and having been married various times.
"Genesis of the Daleks" contradicted "The Daleks" somewhat, while there were two different versions of Atlantis' destruction.
In the modern series, The Time War provides a built-in explanation for any time the new series contradicts the old one (e.g. the planet Earth being destroyed in two contradictory ways). The end of Series 5, in which the universe is "reset", also allows for a handy way of allowing the writers to pick and choose what they keep and what they get rid of; any contradictions can be easily explained with the previous event falling through the "cracks" (quite literally at that).
The TV show tends to take this approach to the many different strands of the Doctor Who Expanded Universe that have shown up over the years. Elements from the comics, books and audio plays have worked their way into the TV show over the years, both in the form of direct and indirect references. But it's also made abundantly clear that there's no formal or official canon, and the TV show is in no way beholden to anything from the expanded universe. Most particularly, the TV show will cheerfully contradict points from the Expanded Universe, delete painstakingly constructed canons with a single line of dialogue, and even remake entire stories first told in the expanded universe as if they were happening for the first time.

Superwomen of Eva 2: Lone Heir of Krypton: Asuka makes appearances in other stories of the same author in her Supergirl identity, and she sometimes mentions events happened in those stories. Since the events of those stories are incompatible with each other, they are described in a very loose fashion, and the author said they happened in a different way.

Empath: The Luckiest Smurf treats Seasons 1 through 5 of The Smurfs cartoon show as if most if not all of its events actually happened prior to Empath returning home for good from Psychelia, even if certain details have changed, such as Baby Smurf's and the Smurflings' origins and the adult Nat Smurf's place in the pre-Smurfling episodes from the cartoon show being taken over by Tapper Smurf in certain situations. Some later season events also took place in that same five-year time period, such as Clockwork Smurf being overcharged with a lightning bolt. But except where those events become a story adaptation, they're not more than just a recap or a mention by the characters.

In don't take it personally babe, it just ain't your story, Akira's mothers are Hazuki (ka-san) and Ichigo Yamazaki (mom) from Christine Love's first kinetic novel, Cell Phone Love Letter; Akira even alludes to the plot of that game when he mentions that Hazuki's coming out story has "all sorts of detailed subplots". However, the timeframe of Cell Phone Love Letter makes it impossible to reconcile with either don't take it personally or Digital: A Love Story. Best guess is that this version of Ichigo and Hazuki met in 2001 through text messages rather than 2007 via email.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation, while keeping the basic ending of the previous film G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (which ended with Zartan impersonating the President of the United States and Cobra Commander and Destro being captured) omits many characters from the previous film without any explanation, changes the Joes from a multinational team into a solely US-based one, and overall removes many of the fantastical elements of the previous films, and overall has a more realistic feel.

There was some confusion with regards to the Yu-Gi-Oh! series commonly referred to as "season 0". It was a lower-budget show that was more faithful to the original manga but wildly eclipsed by the bigger-budget Duel Monsters-centric version released later. In Japan, the confusion was never there as they are completely separate adaptations, but with the inherent mistakes with passing that kind of information across cultural barriers, many believed it was a prequel series and that somehow they fit together.

There are several instances in the Dragon Ball anime where they started adding to the mythology because they Overtook the Manga. Master Roshi once gave an origin story to the Dragon Balls that dealt with ancient wars being fought over a single powerful dragon ball and how a mighty hero split it into 7 so that their power wouldn't be easily misused. A few sagas later the manga introduced the creator of the dragon balls, Kami, and gave the official origin that had nothing to do with the one Roshi told. Most fans take Roshi's story as being the one Shrouded in Myth, something that was made up over time.

Nasuverse productions are explicitly set in a multiverse, and despite most of their games having many mutually exclusive routes, actual sequels to the games usually mix and match details from each of these routes, so none of the routes are actually in-continuity. The fun part is that due to the multiverse nature, multiple continuities can exist side by side with actual potential for crossovers; the best way to do so being to call in Zelretch.

Star Trek: The Animated Series was decanonized by Gene Roddenberry's office back in the 1980s, but since then, some Expanded Universe writers and the Enterprise team have allowed elements from the series to slip in to their works; this series is also the origin of Kirk's recognized middle name (Tiberius). The "holodeck" first appeared in TAS (although it was never called the "holodeck" specifically). It then went on to make its live-action debut in The Next Generation. Naturally, some people thought TNG was the first to introduce it.

In Dumbing of Age, a Continuity Reboot of the whole Walkyverse, it's generally assumed that characters have already had arcs similar to what they did through the Walkyverse - e.g. Ethan came out during Shortpacked!, Ethan of Dumbing of Age came out in high school. This is so readers who already know the characters don't have to go through the same story again.

Both Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: The Clone Wars have elements that don't align with each other (the former also has elements that contradicts the theatrical films). Since George Lucas is a consultant on Clone Wars and the creator of The Clone Wars (along with the fact that he decided that TCW will not be connected to Clone Wars), most of the inconsistencies can be shuffled aside with this trope.
Anakin Skywalker was originally implied to have reached Knighthood later in the Clone Wars, with Clone Wars not specifying the point of time. The Clone Wars inverted this, with Anakin ascending to rank of Jedi Knight fairly early on and having an apprentice of his own for most of the war.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is treated as this in Deadpool (2016). The two movies clearly take place in separate continuities, but there are also enough obvious parallels between the two of them that it can be assumed that at least some of the events of X-Men Origins still happened in Deadpool's past. Deadpool is still played by Ryan Reynolds, he definitely lives in the same universe as the X-Men, he has definitely met Wolverine, he has enough of a history with the X-Men that he's been invited to join the team numerous times, and he spent several years performing covert operations for a Special Forces team prior to the events of the movie. Deadpool definitely never had his mouth sewed shut by Weapon X, but he could conceivably have served with Wolverine and the rest of Team X during his time in the Special Forces. Note that the superhuman training program in Deadpool is never explicitly called "Weapon X,"note  Though a few writers and cast members have called it that in interviews so it technically doesn't contradict the detail about Deadpool first being recruited into Weapon X in the 1970s.

Done in Ben 10: Omniverse, where details such as the existence of Primus (and subsequently, the Omnitrix's function as a signal receiver) were retconned out of continuity. Invoked in-universe, where Ben uses Alien X to create a not-quite-exact copy of the universe and its inhabitants after being destroyed. A later episode dealing with the results of this action has another character point out that Alien X's race does this constantly, using another character's changing voice as an example.
Charmcaster's entire arc in the previous series has this applied to it, particularly to "Enemy of My Frenemy" which is never mentioned and even contradicted several times. According to both Matt Wayne and Derrick Wyatt, this was because it was both so dark and so controversial among fans that it was making it difficult to even incorporate Charmcaster into Omniverse.
Omniverse also restored a version of the original Ben 10,000, but had this in play, as the original 10,000 future, Ben had two kids, suffered a Cynicism Catalyst at the age of 15, and Kevin was very much a bad guy, whereas the version in Omniverse sees Ben only having Kenny and still be on good terms with Kevin. However, Word of God later explained that various alterations in time is why Ben is five years older in the current timeline than the original one when he has his Cynicism Catalyst, why Ben doesn't have a daughter◊ and future!Kevin has a habit of going through the Heel–Face Revolving Door.

Gregory Maguire's Wicked and its hit stage adaptation both purport to be a prequel to and Perspective Flip of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but neither is perfectly consistent with either the book or its classic film version.

Dream Warriors and the subsequent sequels were perhaps written with the trope deliberately in mind. They don't really mention anything that happened in Freddy's Revenge (although the fact of Nancy being committed does figure into the proceedings in Dream Warriors) and yet they don't really contradict any of it either, and when in Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare Freddy says, "First they tried burning me...then they tried burying me...They even tried holy water!" this exact wording allows for "burning" part to refer either to Freddy's Revenge or to Nancy trying to burn him in the first film, or to his original death by burning when he was still human.

The Mega Man X series was supposed to end with the fifth installment, and would lead up to the Mega Man Zero series. However, a sixth game was made without the (initial) approval of the series' creator, creating a lot of problems in the two series' continuity. In order not to confuse the fans, Inafune rewrote the beginning of Zero to make the two series more compatible with each other: At the beginning, instead of the title character being resurrected (the original ending of X5 was his Plotline Death), he was found sealed in an underground laboratory. The (many) reasons for his sealing gave new and interesting plot concepts that would be explored in the series. X6 had the aforementioned character's (secret, and supported as canon by Inafune) ending support this. Further contradictions regarding what happens after that (like the reveal that Zero was reawakened once before to help fight in the Elf Wars) can be explained away in that whatever happened is a century past by the time of the Zero series, and Zero himself doesn't remember much.

Pokémon Reset Bloodlines has plenty of examples in several of its Expanded Universe sidestories:
It's hinted in the Kiawe Interlude that Frax and Velvet go through roughly the same adventures Ash does in the SM series, along with Reset original ones. The Frax & Velvet Interlude follows the same line.
The Gardenia Interlude is somewhat a sequel to the Pokémon Generations episode featuring the Old Chateau, though with enough different details it isn't a 1 for 1 match.
The Charmander Gaiden makes references to No Antidote, hinting that a similar event happened in the Resetverse timeline.
Ritchie's Gaiden implies that the title character's first encounter with Silver went very similar to the Pokémon Chronicles episode, with the exceptions being that his mother was also there and Team Rocket wasn't involved.
Steven Interlude makes references to another fic titled The Long Road for his early career as a Pokémon trainer.

The original Highlander ended in a way that didn't really allow for sequels. "There can be only one," said the tagline, and the movie ends with only one Immortal. Highlander II: The Quickening gets around this by bringing in other Immortals from another planet, and Highlander III: The Sorcerer (which completely ignores Highlander II) uses Sealed Evil in a Can. The rest of the films (which follow the TV series) accept the original film in broad strokes except for its ending.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the series, accepts the broad strokes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the movie. Specifically, it takes the original screenplay by Joss Whedon as correct, while ignoring all the (many) differences that accumulated through Executive Meddling (for instance, the first episode of the series refers to Buffy burning down her old school's gym to kill the vampires inside, which happened in Whedon's version of the story but not in the finished film). A comic was eventually produced called "The Origin", which tells the movie's story in the style of the series.

This applied to the first season of The Massive Multi-Fandom RPG in the subsequent installments, in part because it was sillier than the other ones (to the point where some players and GM's were embarrassed by it), in part because it got deleted. As a result, while its events did happen canonically (more or less), the exact details are made quite vague. For instance, even if a character had participated in Season 1, you could join one of the later seasons with this character while pretending they had never appeared before.

This is how Dino Attack RPG treats the canon of various LEGO Themes, along with fan works such as Alpha Team: Mission Deep Freeze RPG, LEGO Island 3, and LMS. This is even how, in its later years, it treats its own early canon.

In the Ultima series, the events of Ultima 1-3 happened; "the Stranger/Avatar was in a band of heroes that defeated Mondain, Minax, and Exodus"; but any element past that (Like the rocket ships and laser blasters) is ignored. Possibly justified due to all the Time Travel.

Mahou MUSH takes this approach to adapting canon plotlines to the game, the setting of which is an amalgamation of a number of magical girl shows incorporated into a single setting. The general concept of the story arcs as they are depicted in their source material is retained, but the specifics of how they occur in-game are likely to be quite different, particularly when members of other casts start getting involved.

The Joe Oriolo Felix the Cat cartoons have this kind of light continuity going on in them, with some episodes bridging directly between each other (i.e. "Do It Yourself Monster Book" ends with Felix on a raft in the ocean, which is where we find him next in the following episode, "Blubberino the Whale"). Poindexter's UFO, made in "The Flying Saucer" (one of his first appearances), pops up several times throughout the early episodes. But no episodes directly reference a past event, and some episodes fall into outright Negative Continuity (for example, there is no reason Professor should have trusted Master Cylinder with Poindexter in "Venus and the Master Cylinder", when his first appearance "Master Cylinder, King of the Moon" showed him being outright hostile to both of them. The reason for this is because the episodes were very quickly written (the shows grueling schedule forced to put out three new episodes per week, and they were given mere hours to write the scripts) and also because the episodes were designed so that stations could either air them as standalone episodes, or air them as chapters that would form a complete "story" when aired in proper order.

Despite the fact that the many Convergence tie-in books are meant to be set in defunct eras of the DCU, there are some discrepancies over how the characters are presented here compared to the last time they appeared in said timeline.
In this interview, Fabian Nicieza stated that the Arsenal seen in Convergence: Titans did not fall as further down from grace as he did when he was in Deathstroke's team.
Likewise, Superboy, as seen in his tie-in, is based on his late-90s interpretation, but possesses quite a few of his Kryptonian abilities that he never developed during that time. Also, he is flat out stated to be a Kryptonian-human hybrid, while pre-Titans story was that he was a human clone with Kryptonian engineering.

When the New52 gave way to DCYou and then DC Rebirth, some changes get explained and some don't. For example, Starfire's solo series and subsequent Teen Titans run are apparently being specifically written so that her controversial time in Red Hood and the Outlaws can be accepted or ignored at a reader's discretion.

Ash vs. Evil Dead: For copyright reasons, the show can only treat the first two films as canon, which means that Ash works at "Value-Stop" instead of S-Mart and can make only vague allusions to traveling to the middle ages, since most of that plot was in Army of Darkness.

The Dragon Ball Z movies tended to take everything up to a certain point in the timeline (wherever the anime was at when the movie was released) and made up their own story some time after the current events have concluded. After the fact only a few can fit into the very linear narrative of the anime without issue, and those require some wiggle room (Raditz's arrival coincided with Krillin even learning of Gohan, otherwise The Dead Zone fits in nicely right before the series began).

The CGI TMNT was shown as a tentative continuation of the film series by New Line Cinema, but adapted elements of many other sources into its narrative, such as Karai's existence with the Foot Clan and April not being a news reporter. They even had a few continuity nods that only serve to make things stressful for fans. Word of God is that it's meant to be a sequel to the first movie only, ignoring the two sequels. This of course conflicts with the Mythology Gags seen at the very end of the movie.

According to Rocky Balboa, the sixth Rocky film, Rocky did retire from boxing due to a suspected brain injury, but by modern standards he was completely able to fight; he never asked for a second opinion because Adrian didn't want him to fight anymore. Everything else in Rocky V didn't happen.

Fate/hollow ataraxia takes a bunch of details from Fate/stay night, chucks them all in together and weeds out a few events that cannot possibly occur in the same story then calls it good.
Kagetsu Tohya does something similar for Tsukihime. In fact, it's a plot point that the events don't make any logical sense in terms of continuity, and it's a hint that it's all taking place in a dream.

This became somewhat muddled with Transformers Cybertron originally being conceived and intended as a continuation of Transformers Armada and Transformers Energon, but not produced as such. Most fans tend to dismiss it with a Hand Wave involving the Unicron Singularity. Others ignore the Hand Wave and treat it as a separate show. Nonetheless, Takara later adopted the Hand Wave officially, recognizing the same Unicron Singularity and definitively placing the Japanese version, Galaxy Force back as a sequel to Micron Legend and Superlink, Armada and Energon's Japanese counterparts (respectively) as was originally conceived.

Very minor details of Kingdom Hearts were retconned in favor of having a more sensible story.
In the first game, Donald and Goofy didn't know what a keyblade is until they met Sora, as King Mickey gave them vague directions to look for someone with a "key". This doesn't make sense because it's highly unlikely that Mickey would have kept his own keyblade a secret from his best friends. Years later, the writers cleaned up the situation in the prequel Birth By Sleep, showing that Donald and Goofy were fully aware of Mickey's keyblade.
Very similar case in the second game; Donald is, oddly, surprised to find out where Yen Sid lives. Birth By Sleep shows that Donald has been to the same tower before.
The Olympus Colosseum world in the first game implied the events of Hercules had already occurred. Later, Kingdom Hearts III would adapt the ending of the original film, with Hades unsealing the Titans and attempting to take over Olympus, including taking some lines directly from the move.

RoboCop: Prime Directives takes place ten years after the original film and makes vague references to other parts of the RoboCop franchise, including prior attempts to create a new RoboCop, Cadillac Heights being a war zone, and footage from RoboCop: The Series, as well as the evolution of an idea in the episode "Corporate Raiders" of Jimmy Murphy studying to become an executive by being an executive at OCP. However, the sequels and series featured officers addressing Murphy by name and 3 ended with OCP collapsing—and the crew of PD decided that most officers probably wouldn't be okay with what was done to Murphy and OCP was too important to leave destroyed, so they made Murphy's identity a secret until the end, where his identity becomes a matter of public record and having a still-operating OCP.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is not a word by word adaptation of the game of the same name, but rather taking the most important elements and telling another story. Most Prince of Persia games are more combat/parkour oriented rather than story based, the Sands of Time game in particular was pretty bare-bones. The movie keeps the Book-Ends of the game (time is rewound to the beginning of the story with only the Prince aware of what is to come and his relationship with the Princess), but adds many new characters, modifies character roles and develops a more complex narrative.

Terminator Salvation takes a broad strokes approach to the third movie, seen as Fanon Discontinuity to many, with the only clear reference to it being that Kate ended up as Connor's wife and the Terminator fuel cells. Even still, there weren't any explicit references to Terminator 2: Judgment Day (except the Guns N' Roses song). The impression was that it was meant to be that you could watch the original The Terminator and then this movie without any gaps.

Transformers: Beast Wars took this approach to G1 continuity: it took elements of the cartoon and comic continuities as canon for its backstory. The events are not referenced in detail; that allowed a sense of history while it continued with its own story. Then along came Beast Machines, which at its core plot thread disagreed with both comic AND cartoon G1 continuities in irreconcilable ways (and Beast Wars for that matter).
This became somewhat muddled with Transformers Cybertron originally being conceived and intended as a continuation of Transformers Armada and Transformers Energon, but not produced as such. Most fans tend to dismiss it with a Hand Wave involving the Unicron Singularity. Others ignore the Hand Wave and treat it as a separate show. Nonetheless, Takara later adopted the Hand Wave officially, recognizing the same Unicron Singularity and definitively placing the Japanese version, Galaxy Force back as a sequel to Micron Legend and Superlink, Armada and Energon's Japanese counterparts (respectively) as was originally conceived.
Transformers: War for Cybertron and Transformers: Prime were both made under the idea of a single, ultimate universe for the Transformers franchise to work off the next 5 years. They were not meant to be a hard-and-fast canon working together but are taking specific sections of the classic Transformers lore (the war on Cybertron and the arrival on Earth, respectively) while going off a core backstory. There is a good deal of similar elements that connects them together but the fact remains that they were developed by two completely different production teams who gave the mythos their own flavor. Character designs, characterizations and the exact events that unfold (given that WFC should be in the distant past of Prime) vary to some degree.
In the first season finale of Transformers: Prime they give some crucial backstory elements regarding Megatron and Optimus' history, how Megatron ended up turning Cybertron into a dead world and how Optimus received the Matrix of Leadership. Exactly as this trope works, there are timeline issues and details that are different but there was no mistaking the major events that were exactly the same as WFC.
Taken further with the later additions of Rescue Bots and Robots in Disguise, vastly Lighter and Softer than the Video games and Prime series, and the Transformers Go Anime note Although the Japanese-made Go has yet to gain official recognition by Hasbro, and was made completely by the Takara end of the franchise..

Dirty Laundry is this mixed with Loose Canon and Writing Around Trademarks. The story is clearly about The Punisher, but the details are deliberately left very vague, allowing it to be slotted into any continuity or left as it's own universe. For example, the Punisher is played by Thomas Jane who played the character in the 2004 adaptation, so it could be a sequel to that film but no references are made to any events from it. The backstory is thin and ambiguous; Punisher is living in his van after his last adventure went sideways and he's doing some laundry before he gets to work on finding a new hideout. That's all we're told.

The Baldur's Gate novelizations seem to be only partly recognised by subsequent material. The canonical name that they give to protagonist (Abdel Adrian) has shown up, for example, but other details (such as making the protagonist's ally Minsc a bartender rather than a hero) seem to have been dropped from things like the comic series.

The Wrong Reflection is an Adaptation Expansion of the Star Trek Online mission "The Other Side", so you've already got a seriously lengthened story. Then you get to where the author has repositioned the mission in the game's chronology to where it takes place in 2410 instead of 2409, a few weeks after the Federation and the Klingon Empire declared an armistice. It also transfers the player speaking with the Prophets at the end of "Crack in the Mirror" into "The Other Side", and makes it an Orb experience instead of Eleya actually physically visiting the Celestial Temple. The playable mission also doesn't feature a major battle between Terran Empire and Alpha Quadrant forces in the prime universe side of the Arawath system. However, the basic plot structure* Starfleet ship takes the Orb of Possibilities into the mirror universe to retrieve the one stolen by the Terran Empire and stop them from invading the prime universe, and allies with the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance to make it happen. is still the same.

Kamen Rider Decade is similarly about alternate universe versions of the previous riders. This justifies the use of different actors despite each Alternate Rider having a similar story to their original show's version: Alternate Kiva is, like the original, a Fangire royal who is uncertain about his role, but is a young boy instead of a Shrinking Violet twenty-something, etc.

The post-Decade Riders (W onwards) all take place in the same universe, although the only connections are occasional mentions of Foundation X and movie team-ups. It's never explained where exactly the year's worth of time-skip in Double fits in, or why none of the other Riders show up to help the current year's hero with the current year's apocalyptic scenario. The only exception is Build, and that's because the Sky Wall incident wouldn't make sense if it's put as a Hand Wave in the timeline of the main Kamen Rider universe.

For instance, Captain America changed his name to Nomad in the 70's out of disgust over incidents involving Richard Nixon. A later New Avengers issue referenced this, but made the reasoning behind Steve's disillusionment much more vague since by now, Steve would have still been frozen during the 70's.
