There are several instances where Uryu seems to give Orihime a longing look. This isn't so much fanon as it is a possible interpretation of a character's behavior, something that can be applied to many characters besides Uyru.
** Because there are two or three occasions where Uryuu glances Orihime's way to mentally assess her state when they're worrying about Ichigo, some parts of the fandom have interpreted this as proof that Uryuu is in love with Orihime, or at least has a crush on her. The belief that Uryuu has feelings for Orihime is so well-established that many fans are taken aback upon discovering the one-sided ship is fanon rather than canon.

This is really reaching. There was never any indication that it was anything other than Ichigo's power that gave his friends powers, and the implication was that it was a continuous exposure to Ichigo's reiatsu, not something that was achieved instantly.
** It's almost universally believed that Aizen's lecture on how the Hougyoku "gave" the TrueCompanions their powers is a {{retcon}} since Urahara once stated Orihime and Sado were born with powers they couldn't access until they came into contact with Ichigo's vast, uncontrolled reiatsu when he was in shinigami form. Aizen later says the Hougyoku made this possible and mentions that the moment their powers manifested was the moment their hearts were desperately cursing their own powerlessness. This threw into chaos all the {{fanon}} assumptions that were built on top of Urahara's words (such as the major assumption that Ichigo's reiatsu didn't need any help to affect Sado and Orihime and fans ignoring the fact that Urahara didn't explain why there was a time-lag between the moment they were exposed to Ichigo's reiatsu and the moment when their powers actually manifested). In fact, the whole subject of how the Hougyoku actually works is mostly {{fanon}} with the most common belief that it can make any wish come true. Aizen explicitly stated, however, that the Hougyoku is only capable of affecting desires ''that are possible to achieve without it''.

* Half of the CodeGeass fandom believes that Lelouch became the now-immortal Code-''and-Geass-weilding RR (Japanese R = L) who lives happily ever with CC ala Spice and Wolf's Lawrence and Horo (Lelouch and Lawrence do have the same seiyuu after all), as allegedly shown in the "Cart-End" final episode. This mainly due to the fact during and after Lelouch's attack, C.C.'s mark is always covered by her hair, and thus unknown if it is gone or not.

* Tenten is almost invariably the daughter of a weapons shop owner or blacksmith in fanon as an explanation for where she gets her weapons & interest in them. A few authors have also adopted the last name Higurashi for her.

* The idea that Amestris tricked the Ishvalans into attacking them, so that Amestris could invade and conquer them in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. Actually Ishval was just an area of Amestris that the government tricked into rebelling so that they could crush and massacre them. This is made clear in the manga when several scenes from the Ishval Massacre contradict this such as the fact that the Amestrian army still had Ishvalan soldiers up until the 7th year of the rebellion, they only killed the pure blood Ishvalans (and possibly the half blood Ishvalans) when they needed souls for a Philosopher's stone. Scar's brother also tells Scar that Amestris allows the Ishvalans to worship Ishvala. In addition, the Amestrian government is currently at war with 4 other nations, and is a military dictatorship, like they would need a BatmanGambit just to invade a 5th.

* Fans of ''Anime/{{Watamote}}'' typically view Tomoko as having some sort of mental issue such as Social Anxiety Disorder, Avoidant Personality Disorder, or Depression. There's also a consensus she might be on the autism spectrum as well.

** Many fans assume that Milly Asford was more aware of events going on then shown. They generally suggest that she was at least aware that Lelouch was Zero, or suspect he was connected to him somehow, due to knowing him for so long.

Bigger Bad has been renamed.
** Related to the Ryo example above, it is generally believed by many that Ryo's nemesis (and actual digimon partner, but that's a long story) is the BiggerBad of the entire ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' universe, and that he is responsible for unleashing Apocalymon and setting the events of the series in motion. There's just one problem with that: this is '''never actually stated''' in the games in which Millenniumon appears. Millenniumon is responsible for a lot of bad things that happened, but he's far from the "puppet master" he's believed to be by a large percentage of the fanbase - including some on this very wiki.

* Thanks to an EyeCatch from the third season of ''TheSlayers'', just about every fanfic writer believes that Luna Inverse and The Beast Master, one of the five Dark Lords under Ruby Eyed Shabranigdo, are best friends. This seems to stem mostly from a mixture of the manga (which revealed that the werewolf/troll crossbreed Dilgear did, indeed, heal from his fatal wounds and ended up becoming Luna's pet) not being very available and Luna's willingness to [[GoodIsNotNice pass off saving the world and claim she was too busy being a part-time waitress]], instead insisting that they approach her... [[ChaoticNeutral "unpredictable"]] little sister instead. This is despite Luna being known to carry the soul of the chief ''god'' of their world within her, essentially making her a Paladin of such power she can kill a dragon with a kitchen knife and a natural enemy to all Mazoku.

* There's a general consensus with much of the fandom that at least the Hyuuga clan practices inbreeding. There isn't anything to support this in canon. [[spoiler:In fact no one bats an eye Hinata, who is the heir, marrying Naruto.]] The issue comes from Hinata's mother is never even referenced in the manga. An anime-only scene depicts her but her eyes are closed so it's unknown if she was already a Hyuuga or not.

* There's a general consensus with much ''Manga/HunterXHunter'': Many fans of the fandom that at least 1999 anime insist Kurapika is female, usually DisguisedInDrag, despite the Hyuuga clan practices inbreeding. There isn't anything to support manga having him as [[DudeLooksLikeALady an androgynous boy]]. The 1999 version differs from the manga so fanon goes with this in canon.

** There is also the Fanon belief that [[EnsembleDarkhorse Anko]] is a hypersexual, deranged sadist and poison mistress with almost no self control, that she's partially alcoholic, is part of the Torture and Interrogation Team, and is derided for being "the traitor's student". In her brief scenes and filler arc she showed herself to be friendly, energetic, hyperactive, and tomboyish, if kind of creepy and nonsensical -- a lot like a female Naruto in many ways. She had a good relationship with her comrades, and liked being a chunin examiner. [[AllInTheManual Her favorite hobby is the Tea Ceremony]], and her only sexual act so far is wearing a Stripperiffic outfit and licking a kunai creepily to spook Naruto. The Fanon belief seemed to grow from the kunai incident and the fact that Ibiki and she worked as proctors during the chunin exam.
