When a series, either video, comic, or game related goes down a path of story, plot, world mechanics or any supposed fact of the series that has been assumed. Only for the creator to go the complete opposite assumption as the supposed fact.
A Kishimoto moment example: Altair and Ezio are ancestors of Desmond from Assassin's Creed 1, 2, Brotherhood and many other games. It is assumed that they all share one genetic line, however in a recent Q&A the writer for Assassin's Creed says that although Altair and Ezio are indeed Desmond's ancestor, they themselves do not share any blood between them.
