Known Inconsistencies

  • The Fast and the Furious canonically took place in 2001. Fast & Furious, set five years directly after the first film[note 11], would take place in 2006. However, Letty's headstone denotes that she was erroneously declared dead May 30, 2009[note 12], the year the film was officially released. The year date would suggest that the events of The Fast and the Furious occurred in 2004 and not 2001.
  • The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift was originally released in 2006 and featured period-typical technology (flip phones, laptops and model specific cars). The chronological period of the film is retconned. Tokyo Drift takes place after Fast & Furious 6 and partially, during Furious 7, for narrative purposes involving the death of Han Seoul-Oh and his relationship with Dominic Toretto.
  • Brian O'Conner's birth date is contradicted several times throughout the franchise:
    • In The Fast and the Furious, Brian's driver's license states his birthday is July 4, 1977.[note 13] While the date on his license was likely used for his undercover identity (Brian Earl Spilner), real elements of Brian's life (such as his juvenile detention record) were used.[6]
    • In 2 Fast 2 Furious, Brian's birth date is charged to August 29, 1973.[note 14] Incidentally, Paul Walker, who portrays Brian O'Conner, was born in 1973.[1]
    • Brian's birth date is changed once again in Fast Five. The Diplomatic Security Service database states that Brian O'Conner's birth date is July 14, 1978.[3] Brian's birth date in Fast Five contradicts the initial 1973 birth year given to Roman and Brian (who grew up together in Barstow, California) in 2 Fast 2 Furious[1] and Furious 7 where Brian states that both he and Rome attended prom together.[2] Any relevant details on Roman's DSS profile is obscured by Gisele Yashar's profile and is not readable at any point in Fast Five.
  • The canonical placing of 2 Fast 2 Furious is brought into question by events occurring in Fast & Furious and Fast Five on account of the retcon set by Fast & Furious:
    • In Fast Five, when Vince meets Brian he asks him what it's like to be on "other side of a wanted poster". The dialog suggests that Brian never fled from the police and was never charged for aiding Dominic Toretto's escape.
    • According to Brian in 2 Fast 2 Furious he and Roman Pearce grew up together in Barstow, California.[note 15] In Fast Five, Brian introduces Roman as a friend he met in Juvenile Detention.[note 16] Additionally, Brian refers to his partnership with Roman in Miami as a "job".
