Recent protoplanetary disk observations have revealed that not every disk is coplanar. Some disks have misaligned inner and outer disks. I will discuss how a planet or a binary companion can break a disk and cause disk misalignment. Both circumprimary and circumbinary disks will be discussed. With the adoption of the grid-based hydrodynamical code Athena++, I will also explore the disk misalignment in both the inviscid and viscous limit. Finally, I will try to connect the theory with real protoplanetary disk observations.
