Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The writers of a particular work are about to start working on a continuation story, but they have an irreparable issue with the prior continuity.
Maybe Continuity Snarl has made writing an interesting plot increasingly difficult and tedious. Maybe the last episodes of the series made disliked decisions that changed the status quo and subsequent episodes would suffer from the changes made. Maybe the previous series ended and the writers want to start a new series that uses the same characters or takes the series in a different direction or style but don't want to override the ending of the old series. Maybe Continuity Lock-Out is preventing new fans from being attracted to the series. Or a well-liked character was killed off and the writers want to use him or her again without making their death look cheap or if the character is a villain, without suffering Villain Decay.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The solution? Initiate a Continuity Reboot.
A Continuity Reboot is the partial or complete duplicative reset of a continuity from any and all previous works in a series. You could say it's the creation of an Alternate Universe that shares virtually little to no canonicity with the preceding works in a franchise. It's not a Reset Button or Snap Back: while those revert the continuity to a previous state, a Continuity Reboot starts over, providing the authors with a new clean slate to work on. In one form, as far as later works are concerned everything before it is in Canon Discontinuity (to which it sometimes overlaps).
Frequently, a Continuity Reboot will include one (or more) Tone Shifts, usually to whatever is considered the best money-maker for the target demographic, Darker and Edgier or Lighter and Softer.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })While they are not a bad thing in and of themselves, nor are they usually intended to outright replace the original work, a Continuity Reboot itself may be poorly received if handled poorly as it effectively negates any and all character development by a character to start anew and in extreme cases the rebooted character is effectively a completely different character under the same name. If the previous series has already ended and the Reboot is a revival of the franchise then it is more likely to be accepted by audience members.
However, in a meta standpoint, reboots are not actually something that puts an end to main continuities then revives them differently. In conjunction with the reboots being made, the mainstream counterparts still actually exist because they were not only preserved, but also archived ever since, therefore making them alternate continuities above all else, or in an alternate perspective, even as replicated continuities that happen to be invented with deviations to keep them from being exactly alike. In terms of simplicity, if a company "reboots" a specific show or whatever the case may be, the main continuity on the former side doesn't cease to exist. This is Truth in Television as it has been revealed, the mainstream entertainment media was archived online ever since as well as in real life, even to this day. For one example, this is also proven with the websites where you can watch cartoons online, even though the said kind of sites are to archive and preserve them.
Sister trope to Alternate Continuity, the difference is that a Continuity Reboot becomes the new main continuity rather than running alongside the previous universe. For example, Batman comics run alongside any Batman cartoon or movie that is currently airing and each are their own universe; this is an Alternate Continuity. The DC New 52 comics are a new continuity that replaces previous DC comics; this is a Continuity Reboot.note  Of course, in more complex franchises, the two tropes can overlap. DuckTales 2017 is a reboot of DuckTales (1987), long since cancelled, but is also an Alternate Continuity of the original comics, which are still running.
A close relative of the regular Retcon and Cosmic Retcon and Retool. Overlaps with Fix Fic if the reboot's intent is to repair perceived problems with the original version. Compare also Soft Reboot which skirts the line between reboot and sequel.
Often called a "re-imagining" by squeamish writers not wanting to admit that they are throwing out previous continuity (though not always, see Alternate Continuity for exceptions), though this causes confusion as "re-imagining" is also used in the same context as "remake": ground-up retellings with no connection to past continuity (Planet of the Apes (2001), for example, which is credited with popularizing the term "re-imagining" in this context). Often abused by ignorant journalists who refer to any reappearance of a show as a "reboot", even when it is explicitly a Revival. For when the reboot is caused by a specific, identifiable character, that character is a Continuity Rebooter. When it just happens to one person it is Ret-Gone. If the original continuity is later revisited and ignores the newer canon, you have an Un-Reboot.

The Smurfs was rebooted in 2011 with the animated features The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol and The Smurfs: The Legend of Smurfy Hollow, which both take place in Sony Pictures' film series universe. Greedy the village chef was reverted back to Greedy the glutton as in the comic books, but smurfberries from the cartoon series still remain part of its universe.

Planet of the Apes:
Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes (2001). The story was entirely unconnected to the 1968 film and its sequels & prequels, with only loose similarities between the two. Despite including a Sequel Hook at the end, it never spawned sequels of its own.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes is another continuity reboot of the film series, more directly inspired by the 1968 version.

Kamen Rider Fourze then went and retconned all of the previous Kamen Rider shows into a single, continuous timeline, with Gentaro and his buddies watching archived footage of RX, Super-1, Kuuga, and the original Kamen Rider in the second episode. Kamen Rider Wizard later reinforced this idea by having all of the lead Heisei-era Riders show up in its Grand Finale.

Promised to be averted in the post-Flashpoint relaunch. Writer Brian Azzarello says he doesn't intend to retcon anything or give Diana a new origin, but that he does not plan on revisiting or referencing past storylines, deliberately making it unclear as to just how much of Wonder Woman's history is still canonical. While the series is of high quality, the promise of no new origin turned out to be a major case of Lying Creator.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony zigzags this. While the game begins with a video recapping the entries in the series so far, it initially presents itself as a new setting, sharing only Monokuma, the killing game, and the concept of "Ultimates" with the previous entries. In Chapter 5, however, it's apparently revealed that the game actually took place in the existing setting all along. Then in Chapter 6 it's further revealed that this is a lie- the previous entries in the series are considered entirely fictional. But then, in the epilogue, Shuichi thinks it's possible that the previous events did happen after all.

It would seem that every new season of Digimon is a complete reboot, (except for Digimon Adventure, Digimon Adventure 02, and Digimon Adventure tri., which are set in the same continuity) featuring similar concepts and recurring Digimon, but having a whole different cast of humans with a totally new world to explore. These were clearly cases of alternate universes; the Young Hunters and the WonderSwan games made this fact more obvious, but since they have yet to be released outside of Japan, the confusion about the casts is forgivable.

Champions Online took the 25+ years of continuity for the Champions universe and effectively pitched it in the bin. Oh sure, some of the names have been retained, and some of the background elements are the sort-of the same, if you tilt your head and squint. But none of the long term Champions players were fooled by the game's advertising, which was that the Champions Online universe was just the old Champions universe with a new coat of paint.

Care Bears have also been rebooted at least 3 times: The first reboot came in the 2000 revival, second reboot in 2007 with a complete redesign (but was short-lived), and then rebooted again in 2009 when Hasbro took back control of the franchise from Play-Along toys.

My Little Pony:
The My Little Pony animated adaptations have been rebooted three times: once with My Little Pony Tales, again with the Direct to Video movies of the 2000s, and once again with the series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic in 2010. A fourth reboot, to begin with a CGI animated film, will take place in 2021.
The Art Evolution that is G3.5 notwithstanding, the 2000 Direct to Video series was rebooted midway with the introduction of the Core 7 retool. It removed most of the cast except for seven ponies, rebooted Cheerilee completely, and changed Rainbow Dash's personality and accent.

It's said that Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) was meant to have been a reboot (or at least lead TO a reboot) of the Sonic games for the modern age. However, with how bad the game was thanks to being Christmas Rushed, the only thing the game did was Retcon itself out of continuity. Even this is also thrown out the window with Sonic Generations, which treats Sonic 2006 as canonical as well as every other 3D Sonic game.

Roswell, New Mexico is a re-adaptation of the book series Roswell High rather than a reboot of the earlier Roswell. In this version, the characters are aged up to their late twenties as opposed to the teenagers of the original series. The writers of New Mexico have stated that they do not have the rights to use anything that was original to the first show (such as the character of Tess), so the only things they have in common are the elements both lifted from the books, or where the creators of New Mexico give deliberate nods (the aliens drinking nail polish remover instead of hot sauce for example). New Mexico uses some elements of the books that the first show excluded, such as Liz Parker being white in the first show, whereas in the books and New Mexico she is Liz Ortecho and Latina.

DmC: Devil May Cry is one to the Devil May Cry franchise. The new Dante has little to do with his white-haired counterpart; he uses a Whip Sword and has apparently angelic powers. The universe is quite different, too, and was later stated to be an alternate universe. The series would later invert the trope by going back to the original continuity's setting with Devil May Cry 5.

"While The Name Ring Warriors Is Not New", all the title belts used in 2011 when they joined the National Wrestling Alliance were, though given it was over a decade since their run in the 1990s and being shown to an entirely different audience, it was understandable. A little less so when Ring Warriors started filming for WGN in 2018, with a whole new roster and none of its former belts, since they had officially only been gone two years (technically they hadn't had a regular schedule in three) but a lot can (and did) happen in two years.

Steel Battalion is set around 2080 (to begin with) and revolves around a conflict between the Pacific Rim Forces and the Hai Shi Dao, mostly involving advanced Vertical Tanks with extreme computerization. Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor is set in 2082, features some United States soldiers landing on Manhattan in a very Omaha Beach-esque sequence to confront an unknown enemy, and the Vertical Tanks are all now squat-looking things without computers to ease their operation, for microprocessor production has ceased and thrown the world into a Diesel Punk setting. This trope is the only remotely plausible explanation for such drastic changes, besides In Name Only.

The Incredible Hulk (2008) was, at the timenote it has since been beaten out by both The Punisher and Spider-Man; see their entries below, possibly the quickest a franchise has been rebooted. To give you an idea of how fast: 5 years and after a single movie from the previous "continuity". They had been trying to do it in a way that the first film could be counted or discounted as the audience saw fit, but Edward Norton insisted on changing the details of the origin to make them incompatible.

Following the Spider-Man Trilogy, the Spider-Man films were rebooted in 2012 with The Amazing Spider-Man, just five years after Spider-Man 3. Then, after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was made in 2014, this continuity was abandoned and the character was rebooted again: From here on, Spider-Man would be incorporated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, first appearing as a supporting character in 2016's Captain America: Civil War before getting his first MCU solo film in 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Then, in 2001, Lemmings Revolution started again from a clean slate, and introduced water lemmings who have greenish-blue hair and white nightshirts, and acid lemmings, who have red hair and green nightshirts. It also introduced a new Story Arc about weasels capturing them, and the weasels would be the first major villain the game had. Slow sales put the brakes on any further expansion of this continuity/canon.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a reboot of the X-COM series, showing a new take on the war between the eponymous planet-protecting army and alien invaders while taking advantage of new technology to create a game that looked better and remained tough, but fair (in comparison to the Nintendo Hard X Com UFO Defense). The narrative in Enemy Unknown would go in a different direction to the original series with XCOM 2, which takes place after XCOM is defeated and reduced to a ragtag insurgent army.

Mirror's Edge: Catalyst is one for the original Mirror's Edge. The reason for the reboot might be of the Continuity Lock-Out variety since the original didn't sell that well and the creators wanted to sell more than the first game, did but at the same time didn't want newcomers to the series to feel hesitant to buy the game due to never playing the first one. Or maybe they just wanted a fresh start, who knows? But alas, it was still plagued by the poor sales of its "older sister" game. Maybe First-Person Parkour is too niche?

Star Trek (2009): It tells of Kirk and Spock's early years, mixing this trope with Alternate Continuity through use of the Timey-Wimey Ball. Word of God made it very clear that the universe it reboots still exists unaltered and that this new film series is an Alternate Timeline, thus calming down all of the fanboys and giving themselves room for Alternative Character Interpretation. (Fan reaction has been divisive, but the new films are doing well from a financial and critical standpoint.)
Though it lacks the canon-weight of a series or movie, the MMORPG Star Trek Online is set back in the original timeline, about 30 years after after Star Trek: Nemesis and incorporating a few other elements in the back story of the 2009 pre-boot.
Currently, Star Trek: Enterprise is the one series that remains canonical for both timelines, having taken place a century before they diverged. It receives appropriate Continuity Nods in the current film series.

The Westworld series revived the moribund brand from scratch after the badly received sequels to the original film from 1973 killed off the brand for well over thirty years. When the new series premiered in 2016, the approach was to build and expand upon the wealth of ideas and concepts introduced in the (rather short) original film, with 10 episode seasons - each season having a major theme and story arc, forming one individual chapter in the overall series. Like other reimagined series before it, the series reboot of Westworld includes plenty of little nods to the original, and plays around with some of its concepts. Even some of the interesting, but badly executed ideas from the original sequels (Futureworld, Beyond Westworld) get reintroduced in the new series and used far more strongly and convincingly.

Dungeons & Dragons has gone through several editions, each changing the game engine; although in some cases they've excused sudden changes in physical and supernatural "laws" with variations of A Wizard Did It or recovery from an Apocalypse How, there have been instances in which they simply declared a Continuity Reboot with all past events subject to Broad Strokes. The most notable example of this was the transition to 5E. After sweeping changes that came close to a Franchise Killer in 4E, 5E essentially redid everything back to how it was before 4E, but took some of the major additions that were liked to at least have continuity.

Mortal Kombat 9, the first Mortal Kombat game published by Warner Bros., mixes this trope with Alternate Continuity: picking up right where Mortal Kombat: Armageddon left off, Raiden is about to be killed by Shao Kahn and thus invokes the Timey-Wimey Ball by sending a telepathic message to his younger self, warning him of events to come. The game thus visits altered versions of the first three games as twisted by a Raiden with knowledge he wasn't supposed to have back then, attempting to prevent Armageddon from even happening.

Dresden Codak played with the concept, specifically DC's post-Flashpoint reboot, by giving a new set of revised characters here, then mocked when he had a DC-style reboot of his own characters.

The Ganbare Goemon series underwent a reboot in 2001. This "New Age" Goemon had a new futuristic setting and made major changes to the characters, including turning Ebisumaru into a Shy Blue-Haired Girl and replacing Yae by a Short Tank named Yui. The reboot lasted for two games but apparently didn't catch on; the Nintendo DS game seems to give it a Take That!.

This was then followed by Lemmings 3D in 1995, which aimed to start off a new franchise, but further sequels were cancelled. In this continuity, it was a Real World Episode of sorts.

Our Miss Brooks: The cinematic series finale fell in with the regular continuity of both the radio and television versions of the series. However, it was a partial reboot as it erased the events of the final television season (which featured Miss Brooks working at a private elementary school in California, a plot development not occurring in the concurrent radio series). The movie began by retelling Miss Brooks' initial arrival in Madison. On the other hand, the characters (and actors!) were the same as on the radio and television series and there were many continuity nods throughout the film. The movie ends with Miss Brooks achieving her Series Goal, marrying Mr. Boynton and living Happily Ever After.

The Sims 4 is the first main entry in the series not to have the stories of its pre-made characters take place in the same universe as the original game (to which The Sims 2 was a sequel and The Sims 3 was a prequel). Instead, a selection of the most popular characters from across the franchise have been drawn together in what's officially being called an Alternate Universe, regardless of their position in the timeline of the original canon. This was probably done to combat the increasing Continuity Snarl that the series had been experiencing, especially since the intended focus of the games is on the player's own creations rather than the canonical characters.

Cheap Thrills, a Furry Webcomic which became a de facto Orphaned Series after creator/artist S. E. Case went on an extended hiatus in December 2012, is being relaunched as Rigsby, WI in early 2019. This reboot shifts the time period a few years forward from the original mid-1990s timeframe, and the cast is now fully in human form.

Batman:
Following the original four Batman movies directed by Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher, the series was rebooted in 2005 with Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, the first installment of The Dark Knight Trilogy. This movie retold Batman's origin story in a new, grounded, gritty and "realistic" style. It was possibly the first movie to really popularise the term "reboot", with the filmmakers stressing that it was not a prequel to Burton's 1989 movie.
Another reboot took place after the conclusion of The Dark Knight Trilogy in 2012. The character has been incorporated into the DC Extended Universe, making his first appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016.

Kamen Rider:
The All-New Kamen Rider (a.k.a. Sky Rider) and Kamen Rider BLACK were originally intended as reboots of the franchise, but they ended up being in the same continuity as the original shows (for Black, the retcon occurred in its sequel series Kamen Rider BLACK RX when the ten previous Riders guest-starred in the final story arc). The franchise's Heisei era (from 2000 and onward) was a reboot into a new multiverse, of which the previous Riders' single shared universe was not part of... until Kamen Rider Decade reincluded it in the multiverse.
Kamen Rider Fourze then went and retconned all of the previous Kamen Rider shows into a single, continuous timeline, with Gentaro and his buddies watching archived footage of RX, Super-1, Kuuga, and the original Kamen Rider in the second episode. Kamen Rider Wizard later reinforced this idea by having all of the lead Heisei-era Riders show up in its Grand Finale.
In general, the Heisei-era Kamen Rider altered some Recurring Elements, such as switching from cyborgs to normal humans while retaining the transform belts. According to Toei, they don't want to make a Kamen Rider character with backstories of Unwilling Roboticisation ever again.
Kamen Rider: The First, Kamen Rider: The Next, and Kamen Rider Amazons served as Darker and Edgier reboots to early Showa-era show s. The mid-2000s film duology were reboots to the original Kamen Rider and V3 while Amazons was a reboot of Amazon

Rozen Maiden was originally Cut Short in the middle of the story with none of the major mysteries solved. A new version of the manga is being produced but all signs point to a Continuity Reboot, perhaps to erase the stink of the conflict between the publishers and producers that caused the original manga's death. It turns out it's a literal Alternate Universe. So while it started fresh it circled back around. That's gotta be played with somehow.

When writing the novel of The Worthing Saga, Orson Scott Card didn't have access to his original short stories, and while he did his best to recreate their plots from memory, upon finding the stories again he decided the novel had become too different to fit with them again. Later editions, however, include the best stories in the back of the book as an Alternate Continuity.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 (the cable series that ran for ten seasons, followed by two seasons to date on Netflix) is actually a reboot of a local Minnesota series that aired on KTMA TV-23. When the show's creators began making episodes for The Comedy Channel (later Comedy Central) they decided to retroactively treat the KTMA series as a 40-hour long pilot for the cable series. The first national season of episodes for The Comedy Channel is, therefore, treated as the show's first official season. This allowed them to rethink various aspects of the show. Notably, J&TB ended up re-watching nine movies in the third season without mentioning that they'd actually seen them before, unofficially.

Wonder Woman Vol 1 was retooled very heavily several times between 1965 and 1985. They finally gave up and restarted at #1, throwing out all previous continuity. Fans who only knew her from her job as the token woman in Justice League/Superfriends didn't understand why suddenly she was ten years younger and could hover, but really, the new Wondie as published was less revisionist than planned. It had gotten that bad.
Promised to be averted in the post-Flashpoint relaunch. Writer Brian Azzarello says he doesn't intend to retcon anything or give Diana a new origin, but that he does not plan on revisiting or referencing past storylines, deliberately making it unclear as to just how much of Wonder Woman's history is still canonical. While the series is of high quality, the promise of no new origin turned out to be a major case of Lying Creator.
Wonder Woman was also rebooted corresponding to the start of the Silver Age in 1956 with Wonder Woman (vol. 1) #98. Unlike a lot of DC's other Silver Age reboots which completely revamped the characters, Wonder Woman's reboot kept the character mostly the same with a few slight changes, but reset her story to have her leaving Paradise Island for the first time. Among other changes, Wonder Woman was given the ability to glide on air currents and Hippolyta was changed into a blonde.
Wonder Woman (Rebirth) brings Diana's origins back to something resembling their status Post-Crisis, but throws nearly all of her previous continuity out the window as it states that not only were the New 52 stories an elaborate lie and hoax but that Diana has never returned to her home island after leaving for the first time.

Supposedly Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was to be an event within the original Prince of Persia franchise obliquely, giving obscure continuity nods to those familiar with the earlier games. When Prince of Persia: Warrior Within came out, it changed much of the tone and storyline of the game to make the new games into a Continuity Reboot, and since The Sands of Time wasn't linking it to past games, it wasn't too jarring. The 2008 game is another continuity reboot entirely, with a completely different game style. The franchise then inverted this trope by ignoring the 2008 game and releasing a title set in the Sands of Time continuity, entitled The Forgotten Sands.

The Multiversity for Earths 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 16, 17, 18, 19, 26, 32, 33, 40, 43, and 50, none of which are their original incarnations - whether that's because of a retool, renumbering from the original Pre-Crisis multiverse, or replacing a different universe with the same number.
Earth-4 was created and destroyed in Crisis on Infinite Earths, and, coming pre-Watchmen, didn't have any influence from it.
Earth-5's Pre-Crisis analog, Earth-S, was destroyed in the Crisis.
Earth-6's Pre-Crisis analog was a world where America lost the Revolutionary War and a royal family of superheroes protected the Earth. Its sole survivor was Lady Quark.
Earth-8's Pre-Crisis analog was a world home to the heroes who debuted after the first Crisis. After 52, it was designed as a parody of the Ultimate Marvel line of comics and a revision to the Champions of Angor and Extremists. The world still seems to be Marvel-based, but with a team called the Retaliators instead of the Justifiers, for example. The Extremists still exist though.
Earth-10's Pre-Crisis analog, Earth-X, was a world where the Nazis won and the Freedom Fighters were La Résistance, but had no Justice League. It was destroyed in the Crisis. When it was restored in 52, it featured a Nazi version of the Justice League, which hadn't been done before. Conflicting portrayals in Countdown to Final Crisis had a standard generic Nazi League and an America covered in concentration camps. In Countdown: Arena, a Nazi version of the Ray was chosen as a contestant by Monarch, and it was mentioned the current Fuhrer was a woman. Morrison disregarded most of this and reestablished his own version of Earth-10 in Final Crisis.
Earth-16 was classified as the universe home to the Young Justice cartoon, although Morrison has stated he's working on a way that incorporates the TV show with his interpretation of this particular Earth. As of yet, the only incorporation is a one-panel reference to the TV show being only a video game on the new Earth-16.
Earth-17 before the Crisis was a world where all superheroes were created by the government, until Overman (that Earth's version of Superman) contracted an STD, went insane, and destroyed everything. As part of the 52 Earths, Earth-17 was recreated as a world home to the Atomic Knights.
Earth-18's status as a western world is taken to the extreme. Originally it was introduced in Countdown: Arena as home to the Justice Riders Elseworlds. While that is still partially true, the reason this Earth is western-based is because the Time Trapper meddled in its growth, freezing society in a frontier state but allowing it to develop future technology, such as an internet system based off the telegraph.
Earth-19 was just home to the Gotham By Gaslight series, but is now a world home to other Victorian versions of different heroes, including the Amazonia Wonder Woman, who used to be a native of Earth-34 in Countdown: Arena.
Earth-26 was designated Earth-C Pre-Crisis.
Earth-32 was established in Countdown: Arena as the universe home to Batman: In Darkest Knight. That seems to still be true, only now this world is home to numerous other amalgamated characters, such as Wonderhawk (Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl), Aquaflash (Aquaman and Flash), Super-Martian (Superman and Martian Manhunter) and Black Arrow (Black Canary and Green Arrow).
The post-Infinite Crisis Earth-33 was originally a magic-based world home to the League of Shamans, but since that was seen in Countdown to Final Crisis, naturally it's been ignored just as everything else from that series was. Earth-33 is now the superhero-less "real world", formerly called Earth-Prime.
Earth-40, once a pulp Spy Fiction world home to "The Justice Files", has been retooled as an Evil Counterpart to Earth-20, which appears to have taken up its mantle.
Earth-43, a universe home to the Batman Vampire trilogy, was originally called Earth-1191 in the first Multiverse before the Crisis.
Earth-50 was originally the universe in which the WildStorm Universe was set. With the universe now merged with the DCU in Flashpoint/New 52, it's now the home of the Justice Lords from Justice League. Almost fitting, considering Word of God said the Justice Lords were based on The Authority.
Earth-C-Minus, the home of the Justa Lotta Animals, is shown to still exist as of Captain Carrot and the Final Ark, though its official designation in regards to the rest of the multiverse is still unknown. The Justa Lotta Animals show up in The Multiversity #2 fighting Earth-26's Zoo Crew. Whether they're native to Earth-26 or their own Earth is unknown.

Pokémon:
The franchise rebooted a lot of things in Gen III. It told that there actually were Dark- and Steel-types before Gen II and even more Pokémon than Gen II featured; essentially, it changed the nature of introducing new Pokémon from that of "new discoveries" to "Pokémon that have always existed but are only just being featured for the first time".
Another reboot in the transition to Gen III is the way Pokémon are coded. It underwent a complete overhaul that made Gen III incompatible with the previous games, essentially resetting many a fan's collection of Pokémon.
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire implies it and Pokémon X and Y are reboots set in an Alternate Universe from the pre-3DS games. Pokémon Sun and Moon confirms this with the appearance of Anabel from Pokémon Emerald, who came to the new universe from the pre-Gen VI one. However, unlike most reboots, it's implied the old games still happened in mostly the same way, the only difference being that Mega Evolutions exist thanks to AZ firing his weapon in the distant past.

Godzilla:
The series first did it with Godzilla 1984, which was released after a ten-year hiatus and was presented as a direct sequel to the original film Gojira and ignored the numerous films in between, as well as being Darker and Edgier and attempting to be slightly more grounded in tone.
Godzilla (1998), the first American reboot, which was intended to start a trilogy, but was a tremendous flop with critics, general audiences, and long-time fans, resulting in only an animated series that followed the film being produced and the rest scrapped.
Later, the concept was taken to extremes when, starting with Godzilla 2000, three films in a row all were made as direct sequels to the first film. These films were deliberately set in different continuities as "auditions" for various different approaches. After Godzilla (1998) bombed, Toho rushed their franchise back into production, so they didn't have time to do the development behind the scenes and thus tested out their options more publicly (however, in one of the reboots, Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack!, the events of the 1998 film are acknowledged to have happened, so it's more like Schizo Continuity). The "winning" production team was the one that made the second Millennium-era film, Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, but when it did poorly at the box office, they started a distinct, fourth one which lasted for two films (Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla and Godzilla Tokyo SOS). When the series proved commercially unsuccessful, they then did one last film, Godzilla: Final Wars, in a fifth distinct reality (Toho's seventh overall) as a fifty-year Milestone Celebration before going on a decade-long hiatus.
Godzilla (2014) is one for both the original Toho films and the 1998 American film, setting itself in a completely separate continuity (although still with numerous nods) that tries to be more faithful to its source material than the 1998 film, and also acts as an Intercontinuity Crossover with King Kong, dubbed the Monsterverse.
Toho later started plotting a different, separate from Legendary, Godzilla film of their own for 2016 with Shin Godzilla, which is a pure reboot, even ignoring the original Gojira, which may lead to two running alternate continuities at once. They later scrapped the idea of a direct sequel, but have plans to move ahead with another unrelated connected universe.
Only a year after Shin Godzilla, Toho began releasing a trio of animated Godzilla films set in their own contained continuity, once again completely unrelated to any of the other films, which began with Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters.

The DCU has had a couple of these justified by Cosmic Retcon; most famous is the Crisis on Infinite Earths which was a full-on history-redefining reboot but kept the characters the same; Infinite Crisis, which was more of a tweaking than a full reboot; and the New 52 reboot that changed things even more than the Crisis.
The Silver Age was originally started by DC rebooting most of its lines of comics starting with The Flash in 1956, but later extending to Green Lantern, Hawkman, The Atom, Wonder Woman and the Justice Society of America, whose reboot included a slight name change to the Justice League of America. Most of these reboots also included Retools as well to make the series more sci-fi oriented. The original continuity that was displaced by these reboots was later shown to take place in an alternate universe, Earth-Two, which would later regularly crossover with the reboot universe, which was dubbed Earth-One.
Technically, in the New 52 universe, Barry Allen and Booster Gold survive the old universe, but only remember their new lives (Barry does apparently remember his time in the Flashpoint universe, but not his old life in the original). And the Green Lantern and Batman continuity has been reproduced in this universe, but otherwise it's a complete reboot, although some of the major stories of the past (such as a version of Blackest Night) still took place.
Ultimately, the New 52 proved to be a failure and it was retconned with DC Rebirth that the New 52 universe was actually the original universe, but was altered by Dr. Manhattan about the time Flashpoint came to its conclusion.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles began a brand new series in 2003 based more closely on the original comic book than 1987 series. The Turtles Forever crossover event connected both series in a transdimensional crossover meeting each other as well as the original Turtles from the Mirage comic book. The 1987 series received an authentic reboot in 2012.

After the bombing of Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness, the switch to Crystal Dynamics also brought in a complete shake-up of Lara's back story and general canon. However, various hints throughout the last few games and background material makes it obvious that most of the previous games did still happen in the new continuity.
The Square Enix-published Tomb Raider is a complete reboot. The new continuity features a fresh out of university Lara, with very little combat experience. This Lara is very down to earth and though she is still very brave and crafty she still easily succumbs to fear and panic when she gets captured, is alone or is forced to kill. Though this change is not a bad thing in most respects it's still an extremely jarring departure if you've always known her as the semi-cocky, self-reliant, one-woman army who almost literally spits in the face of danger.

Lady Death went through several reboots over the course of her publication as she changed publishers: starting out as a supporting character in the Evil Ernie comic books before becoming a Chaos! comic flagship character until the company went bankrupt. She gained a whole new backstory after her rights were sold to CrossGen though the company also went under in two years, with the rights being sold to Avatar, who re-imagined the character again. In 2015, her creator Brian Pulido regained her rights and instead of making a third reboot, has decided to pick it up from the original continuity.

Lemmings (produced by the same people who make Grand Theft Auto) underwent not one, but three reboots, all of which are Alternate Continuities to each other:
The first reboot was Lemmings 2: The Tribes in 1993, which became an Aborted Arc.
This was then followed by Lemmings 3D in 1995, which aimed to start off a new franchise, but further sequels were cancelled. In this continuity, it was a Real World Episode of sorts.
Then, in 2001, Lemmings Revolution started again from a clean slate, and introduced water lemmings who have greenish-blue hair and white nightshirts, and acid lemmings, who have red hair and green nightshirts. It also introduced a new Story Arc about weasels capturing them, and the weasels would be the first major villain the game had. Slow sales put the brakes on any further expansion of this continuity/canon.

Fuzzy Things changed from being about adventurer kids in training to somewhat ordinary kids in a sci-fi/fantasy world. Most of the characters retained their previous personalities though, with the exception of Ixiah who changed completely (from a blue-furred psionic semi-Well-Intentioned Extremist the same age as the other kids to Fox's older brother who has his own Middle-school aged group).

Earth-16 was classified as the universe home to the Young Justice cartoon, although Morrison has stated he's working on a way that incorporates the TV show with his interpretation of this particular Earth.

The Legion of Super-Heroes did this twice. The first time was set up by Zero Hour! and the second more vaguely by Infinite Crisis. Final Crisis then did it a third time, restoring a version of the Legion mostly like the original. It was later revealed that all three Legions were canonical. At the same time. The first Legion is canonical to the main DCU. The Zero Hour one is from a universe that was destroyed during Crisis on Infinite Earths which "replaced" the first one because of the Time Trapper's interference. The Threeboot universe is a Legion from an existing Alternate Universe, Earth-Prime, which the Time Trapper tried to replace after the Zero Hour Legion got thrown into the Bleed (or Limbo or whatever).

Earth-8's Pre-Crisis analog was a world home to the heroes who debuted after the first Crisis. After 52, it was designed as a parody of the Ultimate Marvel line of comics and a revision to the Champions of Angor and Extremists. The world still seems to be Marvel-based, but with a team called the Retaliators instead of the Justifiers, for example. The Extremists still exist though.

Following the original four Batman movies directed by Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher, the series was rebooted in 2005 with Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, the first installment of The Dark Knight Trilogy. This movie retold Batman's origin story in a new, grounded, gritty and "realistic" style. It was possibly the first movie to really popularise the term "reboot", with the filmmakers stressing that it was not a prequel to Burton's 1989 movie.

The Punisher has had three films, none of which are connected to the others in any way. It also beats out the Hulk for turnaround time, four years to Hulk's five. This was largely because the second film was actually successful. Punisher: War Zone was intended as a direct sequel, and became a reboot only when Thomas Jane dropped out. The Punisher's subsequent appearance in the Netflix Daredevil series rebooted him a third time.

Averted by Doctor Who, which was revived in 2005, and which bucked the trend by soon establishing that it was a full Revival of the 1963-89 series, not a reboot or reimagining. To this day, however, some media continue to refer to it as a reimagining, despite (at least in Broad Strokes terms) all of the earlier stories still being in continuity.
However Death Comes to Time seems to be intended as a reboot. Despite coming out after the Movie it appears to follow a different continuity, due to the 7th Doctor being Killed Off for Real.

The Boktai series pulled this with its American release of Lunar Knights. Boktai 3 was never released in the United States, and those who got their hands on the translated patch had to suffer through a nonsensical story, an abrupt difficulty hike, the obnoxiously long motorcycle scenes, and Trinity. Lunar Knights gives only vague Continuity Nods at best to the previous games but otherwise stands as its own lone story.

2018's Bumblebee was original slated to be an explicit prequel to the original 2007 film by Michael Bay, but after bringing on Travis Knight, drastic changes in the tone and aesthetic, namely giving the Transformers themselves new designs greatly evocative of their G1 selves, and overall other stylistic liberties and major continuity differences have pretty much all but said classified it as a reboot, which was eventually confirmed by Hasbro two months after the film's release.

The most obvious example are the new Thrawn books (Thrawn, Thrawn: Alliances, and Thrawn: Treason), which explain the new origins of Grand Admiral Thrawn and which are written by the character's original creator Timothy Zahn. The books even bring the character of Admiral Ar'alani of the Chiss Ascendancy into the new canon, and while Star Wars Rebels has already re-introduced Captain Pellaeon into canon, the novels provide his first name Gilad and some details on his new backstory (in the new canon, he's no longer Thrawn's protégé and commands the Harbinger instead of the Chimaera).

Halloween:
Rob Zombie's remakes Halloween (2007) and Halloween II (2009) start the story anew, with an extensive focus on Michael's dark and violent childhood.
Halloween III: Season of the Witch sort of fits, as it is its own thing, dropping the first two films with an entirely new, unrelated story as John Carpenter originally intended the franchise to be a Halloween-themed anthology series and not just slasher films. Due to a negative audience reaction, this idea was scrapped.
Due to repeated Sequelitis, this has happened repeatedly in the "main" series. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers was followed up by Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later, which ignored the continuity of all but the first two movies. Its sequel, Halloween: Resurrection was itself followed up by the complete reboot of the Rob Zombie remakes, which in turn were followed by another reboot, Halloween (2018), which ignores all of the preceding films with the exception of the original.

The 2003 released Battlestar Galactica is a "re-imagining" of the original series. Notably, only the pilot Miniseries, "The Hand of God", and the two-part "Pegasus/Resurrection Ship" episodes directly adapt events or characters from the original series. Unlike the Original Series, the Reimagined universe itself has no aliens and few planets—the drama is contained to the humans and their Cylon creations alone.

7th Sea second edition reboots the first edition: while the setting's still a fantasy version of 17th century Earth, countries and continents have been added, the politics and cultures of existing countries have been tweaked a bit, and aliens have been removed from the setting.

Turok did one by Disney (seriously, though under their Touchstone brand) in 2008, adapting a more generic Space Marine theme. It wasn't a bad game, with great graphics and some fun gameplay elements, but sadly it only managed to attain So Okay, It's Average status as a whole. Due to the ho-hum response both critically and commercially, the planned sequel was scrapped.

League of Legends underwent one starting around 2013-14. The initial Framing Device of the game and lore was an Excuse Plot involving the titular Combat by Champion-operating league, but Riot Games eventually saw this as a creative hindrance due to them being unable to escalate significant conflict or go really out-there in terms of champion design, as well as this dynamic gradually being ignored with later champions anyway. They hit the reset button in 2014, completely Retconning the League out of existence, slowly rewriting all existing champion lore to operate without it in a much more in-depth free-for-all Runeterra, with gameplay now being non-canonical "champion vs. champion" fun.

The series first did it with Godzilla 1984, which was released after a ten-year hiatus and was presented as a direct sequel to the original film Gojira and ignored the numerous films in between, as well as being Darker and Edgier and attempting to be slightly more grounded in tone.

After Ben 10: Omniverse ended in 2014, the Ben 10 franchise was rebooted as Ben 10 (2016) in 2016 with a new style to return to its roots. Though Tara Strong reprises her role as Ben, there are new voice actors for Gwen and Max. When compared to the original, the reboot has 11-minute episodes and borders on comedy and slapstick.

Superman Returns (2006) was a partial Continuity Reboot. It was intended to restart the film series, accepting the continuity of Superman: The Movie and Superman II in a Broad Strokes fashion while completely ignoring Superman III and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. However, middling critical and financial returns put the kibosh on any further sequels being made. It was then fully rebooted in 2013 with Man of Steel, which started the DC Extended Universe.

Fruits Basket received a new anime adaptation in 2019 which starts from the beginning and adapts the manga more faithfully than the 2001 anime adaptation did. Since Natsuki Takaya famously disliked the 2001 anime even while it was in production, it's fairly obvious why a new anime was made.

Deconstructed in one Astro City story: a man has recurring dreams about a woman he’s never met before and who apparently never even existed. He’s driven to near insanity by the visions. Then the Hanged Man arrives and explains what’s happening; the woman is the man’s wife... or rather, she was his wife, before a Crisis on Infinite Earths-style Crisis Crossover that led to the universe being rebooted. One of the changes in the timeline is that this seemingly random woman has been erased from existence. Her husband doesn’t have a Ripple Effect-Proof Memory and has been having subconscious memories of what the universe was like before. Mercifully, Hanged Man manages to give the poor guy some peace of mind by explaining this, but it’s no less horrifying.

Later, the concept was taken to extremes when, starting with Godzilla 2000, three films in a row all were made as direct sequels to the first film. These films were deliberately set in different continuities as "auditions" for various different approaches. After Godzilla (1998) bombed, Toho rushed their franchise back into production, so they didn't have time to do the development behind the scenes and thus tested out their options more publicly (however, in one of the reboots, Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack!, the events of the 1998 film are acknowledged to have happened, so it's more like Schizo Continuity). The "winning" production team was the one that made the second Millennium-era film, Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, but when it did poorly at the box office, they started a distinct, fourth one which lasted for two films (Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla and Godzilla Tokyo SOS). When the series proved commercially unsuccessful, they then did one last film, Godzilla: Final Wars, in a fifth distinct reality (Toho's seventh overall) as a fifty-year Milestone Celebration before going on a decade-long hiatus.

Godzilla (2014) is one for both the original Toho films and the 1998 American film, setting itself in a completely separate continuity (although still with numerous nods) that tries to be more faithful to its source material than the 1998 film, and also acts as an Intercontinuity Crossover with King Kong, dubbed the Monsterverse.

There was a 2009 miniseries version of The Prisoner that took the basic concept of the Village and a few character names (such as Two and Six), then took the whole thing in a totally different direction (including providing an explanation for the existence of the Village that would be impossible in the continuity of the original series).

The Karate Kid (2010), starring Jaden Smith as the titular kid and Jackie Chan as the old mentor. It borrows elements from the first film in the series. Interestingly enough, the original continuity would eventually be resumed with Cobra Kai eight years later, leaving the reboot in an assumed Alternate Continuity (both are set in different countries, making a crossover pretty unlikely).

One oft-cited possible reason for Armored Core's Capcom Sequel Stagnation is this: Every time they start with a new number, it is always a new continuity almost unconnected with previous games à la Final Fantasy. Example: the Earth-centric original Armored Core, which shifts to Mars-based Armored Core 2, which reboots back to Earth-based Armored Core 3 (the longest continuity with 5 games under this setting), and then the Present Day Present Time Armored Core 4.

The All-New Kamen Rider (a.k.a. Sky Rider) and Kamen Rider BLACK were originally intended as reboots of the franchise, but they ended up being in the same continuity as the original shows (for Black, the retcon occurred in its sequel series Kamen Rider BLACK RX when the ten previous Riders guest-starred in the final story arc). The franchise's Heisei era (from 2000 and onward) was a reboot into a new multiverse, of which the previous Riders' single shared universe was not part of... until Kamen Rider Decade reincluded it in the multiverse.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire implies it and Pokémon X and Y are reboots set in an Alternate Universe from the pre-3DS games. Pokémon Sun and Moon confirms this with the appearance of Anabel from Pokémon Emerald, who came to the new universe from the pre-Gen VI one. However, unlike most reboots, it's implied the old games still happened in mostly the same way, the only difference being that Mega Evolutions exist thanks to AZ firing his weapon in the distant past.

The Halloween Unspectacular series was supposed to end with the fifth edition, due to wrapping up the Myth Arc in epic fashion. However, the author eventually decided to revisit the series, at which point he made it clear that the new arc starting in the sixth edition was in a separate continuity from the one which ran through the first five. That arc lasted until the eighth edition, with the ninth one being another continuity completely separate from the other two altogether.

The 2007 remake of Bionic Woman is an example of a reboot that was not well-received. It didn't help that trouble behind the scenes nor that the producers had the rights to the title Bionic Woman, the name Jaime Sommers, the term bionics, and nothing else, meaning they had no choice but to reboot the continuity and try to put a show together without Steve Austin or Oscar Goldman, further hurt any chances at success the series may have had.

Ten years later, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) was a more straightforward example.

The protagonist of Strontium Dog died in a Heroic Sacrifice in a 1990 story, and was then killed again, quite horribly, at the end of the Darkest Star arc. The series was revived in 1999; this revival established that the prior stories were 'folklore', and the new series was 'what really happened'. This lasted for all of one Story Arc before returning to the original continuity with a series of prequel stories.
