  • Retcon of Retroactive continuity is een term om een opzettelijke verandering in continuïteit aan te duiden. De laatste jaren wordt het steeds meer en meer gedaan in de Star Wars continuïteit om oudere feiten weer te doen passen in het grote verhaal en te doen overeenkomen met nieuwe feiten.
  • Short for retroactive continuity. Happens in Doctor Who all the time, unintentionally or otherwise.
  • The Degrassi Franchise has been retconned four times. The first was by a year for Degrassi Junior High. This was then followed by a second retcon for Season 10 by two years, then (recently) a third retcon for Season 13 by one year and then again in Season 17.
  • Retroactive continuity, or retcon for short, is the alteration of previously established facts in the continuity of a fictional work. Retcons exist in the Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell series because of multiple writers in the various forms of the Splinter Cell media that change already established storyline details, plotlines, character backgrounds, etc. In some instances, the developers may address this issue while some details have not specifically been talked about. In these cases, it may become unclear what is established and what isn't because of inconsistencies (in the specific areas, these will be addressed).

  • A retcon is a change to the official canon of the story that revises, or sometimes even outright contradicts an earlier established rule or plot point. Because Fairly OddParents has been running for over a decade and has different writers behind each episode it is inevitable that some things in the plot will conflict with each other, so it is important to remember to distinguish between what is an actual retcon and what is a simple mistake in plot.
  • Retcon is when a author or company completely erases or re-write a character(s),event(s), and or the entire series.
  • Retroactive continuity — commonly refered to as retcon — is the adding of new information to "historical" material, or deliberately changing previously established facts in a work. The change itself is referred to as a "retcon", and the act of writing and publishing a retcon is called "retconning". Retcons are common in comic books, especially those of large publishing houses such as Marvel Comics, because of the lengthy history of many series and the number of independent authors contributing to their development; this is the context in which the term was coined.
  • Retcon (englanniksi retroactive continuity, retroaktiivinen juonijatkumo) on fiktiossa tapahtuva ilmiö, jossa tarinan kirjoittaja muuttaa tarinan fiktiivisen maailman faktoja, usein joko jättämällä entiset faktat huomiotta tai selittämällä faktat myöhemmin toisella tavalla – esimerkiksi jonkin hahmon kuolema paljastuu myöhemmin lavastukseksi.
  • Retroactive continuity—forkortet retcon—betyder at man, på grund af to modsigende udgivelser, finder på en løsning til probelemet. Ændringen i sig selv kaldes retcon, mens det at skrive og udgive et retcom kaldes "retconning." Da George Lucas genudgav den originale Star Wars trilogi lavede han flere ændringer der fik dem til at passe bedre sammen Prequel Trilogien og andre nyere udgivelser. Mange fans ser genudgivelsen som en retcon.
  • A retcon (a portmanteau of "retroactive continuity") is the alteration of previously established facts in a fictional work. Retcons are done for many reasons, including the accommodation of sequels or further derivative works in a series, wherein newer authors or creators want to revise the in-story history to allow a course of events that would not have been possible in the story's original continuity. Other reasons might be the reintroduction of popular characters, resolution of errors in chronology, the updating of a familiar series for modern audiences, or simplification of an excessively complex continuity structure.
  • Retcon is an abbreviation for "retroactive continuity", and refers to instances in fiction in which known facts are revealed to have actually been something entirely different all along. In general, a retcon does not refer to elaboration on a backstory (even when that changes the player's or reader's perspective on the subject), but to retroactive changes to concretely established facts. Instances of retcons in White Wolf fiction include:
  • A side-effect of the pill was induced unconsciousness, though it took a while for this to occur. (TV: Everything Changes) Retcon appeared capable of erasing selective memories, or implanting false memories. When given to the party following alien disruption of the wedding of Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams, it did not result in a large group of people forgetting that Gwen and Rhys were married. However, Jack said it was LV 6 Retcon, implying different levels of retcon invoked a different effect. (TV: Something Borrowed) In particular, Level 6 Retcon had a peculiar effect if mixed with champagne, causing a brief boost in activity before enducing sleep.
  • Retroactive continuity—commonly contracted to the portmanteau word retcon—refers to deliberately changing previously established facts in a work of serial fiction. The change itself is referred to as a retcon, and the act of writing and publishing a retcon is called "retconning." Although the concept is far older, the term "retroactive continuity" was popularized in 1983 by DC Comics writer Roy Thomas, and the shortened form "retcon" by Usenet in the late '80s.
  • A Retcon is information given after a product's release that further explains something about that release or attempts to explain plot holes (which sometimes contradicts with the information within the release itself). A retcon is usually found in sequels, but can sometimes be given by companies as an explination for plot holes. An example of a retcon in the Myst series is Richard A. Watson's explination of Trap Books. In an e-mail written to fans, he explains that Trap Books cannot be created by the D'ni, as they are not making worlds with The Art but rather linking to them. He further states that the trap books in Myst (which hold Sirrus and Achenar) as well as Gehn's trap book from Riven do not function as the games would have you believe but rather trap the users in Prison ages.

  • A retcon (short for retroactive continuity) is a retroactive alteration in the official lore of a series of works of fiction. These changes can either be: * Additional backstory to explain and expand upon present circumstances. OR * Historical facts which are rewritten and are meant to be taken as having always been that way.
  • Retroactive continuity, or retcon for short, is a new piece of information that imposes a different interpretation on previously described events. In regards to the Metal Gear series, a retcon is a situation in which the storyline of a new game explains or changes an event from a previous one, or attaches a new significance to it.
  • Retcon (Retroactive Continuity) : Definition : Where a subsequent story or sequel (or even interviews from authors) reveals additional information about characters or story events which supposedly took place in the earlier work, usually changing the understanding or facts about what happened. This can include complete contradictions which are not compatible with the previous writing. So this MMORPG (whenever it is made) will be able to legitimately 'Retcon' all those (in this case to correct illogical/lazy conflicts, and move forward and enhance the story). --- --- --- --- --- . . .
  • "Retcon" (short for "retro-active continuity") is a term used in fiction for a piece of information that is included as a way to address an apparent continuity error or inconsistency. Retcons are common-place in long-running fictional universes (such as comic books and popular series of novels and television shows). Retcons can sometimes be used to address continuity errors, though there are several instances throughout the history of the Dick Tracy comic strip where continuity cannot easily be reconciled.
  • Retcon stands for retroactive continuity. A retcon is what happens when canon from earlier in the work is changed later on, and the new information renders the old canon uncanonical. Sometimes, this is done with constructive intentions, such as correcting or consolidating canon material written by different individuals, or to fix a technical error made earlier in a work. Other times, it is done in the interests of extending a television show or anime by artificially prolonging the plot, or simply because the creators may decide to ignore an aspect of a canon when they create more. The retcon may be ambiguous (which leads to a lot of arguing in the fanbase) or it may be very clearly defined in the canon or even stated outright to overwrite previous material by the creators.
  • Retroactive continuity, or retcon for short, is the alteration of previously established facts in the continuity of a fictional work. There are various motivations for retconning. The changes may occur to accommodate Sequels or derivative works, allowing newer authors or creators to revise the diegetic (in-story) history to include a course of events that would not have been possible in the story's original continuity. Retcons allow for authors to reintroduce popular characters and resolve errors in chronology.

In general, a retcon does not refer to elaboration on a backstory (even when that changes the player's or reader's perspective on the subject), but to retroactive changes to concretely established facts. Instances of retcons in White Wolf fiction include: * The revelations in Dirty Secrets of the Black Hand (that the Sabbat's Black Hand was secretly working for the True Black Hand all along, and that the Discipline of Vicissitude was actually a soul-eating alien parasite). * The change in Necromancy (and, by association, Mortis) from a standard dot-based Discipline to a path- and ritual-based Discipline of blood magic. * The revelation that the Gaki and Bushi clans were not Kindred but were instead factions of Kuei-jin. * The revelation that the Laibon were not a bloodline but were actually a sect, one that used different Virtues instead of those of the Kindred; vampires created using the existing rules for Laibon characters are generally assumed to belong to the Akunanse Laibon legacy. * The implication (made explicit by the author) that the wraiths Charon and Nhudri were actually named after a pair of Fallen, and that some of the historical deeds ascribed to the wraiths were instead committed by the two Fallen.

  • Retcon stands for retroactive continuity. A retcon is what happens when canon from earlier in the work is changed later on, and the new information renders the old canon uncanonical. Sometimes, this is done with constructive intentions, such as correcting or consolidating canon material written by different individuals, or to fix a technical error made earlier in a work. Other times, it is done in the interests of extending a television show or anime by artificially prolonging the plot, or simply because the creators may decide to ignore an aspect of a canon when they create more. The retcon may be ambiguous (which leads to a lot of arguing in the fanbase) or it may be very clearly defined in the canon or even stated outright to overwrite previous material by the creators. When a retcon occurs, the fans of the material will likely divide into two factions: one that likes or at least honors the retcon, and one that continues to uphold the old material. Both groups are equally likely to create goodfic as well as badfic, though when the fic is bad it will often vary in structure. Fans that support the retcon might begin changing other canon material to 'match' it even if it's not material specified as part of the retcon. Fans that reject the retcon might bash characters involved or smear anything that endangers the idea they're trying to protect. Very often, this treasured idea is a favorite shipping pairing. Retconning is a common problem with comic book continua, and makes dealing with comic book badfic hard due to the problems of ever-changing canon. Retcons also effect television series, especially from season to season when new information may be revealed that changes the meaning of previous material. The universes in video game series are also vulnerable to retcon. Expanded Universes of many fandoms with multiple comics or books may even have retcon wars, with each individual writer holding their own canon and fighting against the canon of other writers. Fanfic writers cannot actually retcon canon, but they can retcon their own work.

  • A retcon (short for retroactive continuity) is a retroactive alteration in the official lore of a series of works of fiction. These changes can either be: * Additional backstory to explain and expand upon present circumstances. OR * Historical facts which are rewritten and are meant to be taken as having always been that way. A large portion of the lore of the Warcraft universe would fall under the first meaning, since it was all developed around a relatively simple war between orcs and humans. This article deals with the second meaning of retcon, a retroactive change in the history or backstory. Some apparently conflicting lore is actually written as flavor lore, and was not necessarily intended to be accurate observations of what actually occurred, but rather competing beliefs held by inhabitants of the world of Azeroth. An example of this is the tauren belief that they were the first druids, which was stated to be false in the Warcraft Encyclopedia.
  • Retroactive continuity, or retcon for short, is the alteration of previously established facts in the continuity of a fictional work. There are various motivations for retconning. The changes may occur to accommodate Sequels or derivative works, allowing newer authors or creators to revise the diegetic (in-story) history to include a course of events that would not have been possible in the story's original continuity. Retcons allow for authors to reintroduce popular characters and resolve errors in chronology. Retcons are common in pulp fiction, especially comic books published by long-established publishers such as DC, Marvel, and leading manga publishers. The long history of popular titles and the number of writers who contribute stories can often create situations that demand clarification or revision. Retcons also appear in soap operas, serial dramas, movie sequels, Professional wrestling angles, video games, radio series, and other forms of serial fiction. Science fiction writers are occasionally confronted with new scientific developments which disprove assumptions made in a previous story or book. For some of these cases, no amount of retconning could "save" a story – for example, many early works of science fiction assumed that Venus was a watery planet – but in many other cases, clever retconning allows the story to retain scientific plausibility under the new conditions.
  • "Retcon" (short for "retro-active continuity") is a term used in fiction for a piece of information that is included as a way to address an apparent continuity error or inconsistency. Retcons are common-place in long-running fictional universes (such as comic books and popular series of novels and television shows). Retcons are not necessarily the same as information that had previously been unrevealed. For example, the revelation that the criminal Mumbles had survived his first encounter with Dick Tracy and had not been lost at sea was not a retcon. However, when writer Max Allan Collins revealed that Mumbles had also survived his SECOND encounter with Tracy (when the criminal had specifically been stated to be deceased), that would qualify as a retcon. Retcons can sometimes be used to address continuity errors, though there are several instances throughout the history of the Dick Tracy comic strip where continuity cannot easily be reconciled.
  • Retroactive continuity, or retcon for short, is a new piece of information that imposes a different interpretation on previously described events. In regards to the Metal Gear series, a retcon is a situation in which the storyline of a new game explains or changes an event from a previous one, or attaches a new significance to it. Retcons are typically used in the Metal Gear series to facilitate a dramatic plot shift or account for an inconsistency. Some retcons add information that contradicts the information that was previously established, while others instead fill in missing background details, allowing the accommodation of prequels/sequels or acknowledgement of real world developments. While creating the series, Hideo Kojima was willing to contradict established continuity on occasion, in order to ensure that "new games are as good as they can be."
  • A retcon is a change to the official canon of the story that revises, or sometimes even outright contradicts an earlier established rule or plot point.

As far as Smurf history goes in the comic book universe, the Smurfs and their village first appeared in a desolate rock-filled forest called the Cursed Land in the comic book story The Smurfs And The Magic Flute, as they were only originally intended to be supporting characters to Sir Johan and Peewit in their series of comic book stories. When the Smurfs became popular enough to warrant a spinoff series of their own, the location of the Smurf Village was changed to a flourishing animal-filled forest seen in all subsequent interpretations of the Smurfs, including the animated version of The Smurfs And The Magic Flute. The prequel comic book story "The Flute Smurfers" kept the look of the village and the forest from the later Smurf comic books instead of reverting back to their original appearances from the earlier story following it. As far as explaining the non-appearances of Baby Smurf, the Smurflings, Grandpa Smurf, Wild Smurf, and Nanny Smurf in the 2011 Smurfs movie, it may be that the movie itself is set in a different media universe and is not a retcon (or better termed, a continuity reboot) of Smurf history in the comic book universe.
