** Yet another demonization example is that Yamcha was terrified of the saibaman and only decided to face them after Tien because of a desire for glory. Not only does Yamcha never display any fear of the saibaman, but he explicitly volunteers in place of Krillin because the latter had already died in the King Piccolo storyline and thus couldn't be revived by Earth's Dragonballs.

* Even fluff anime isn't immune. ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' has all sorts, ranging from ungiven names (surname for Kaori, given name for Sakaki and Kagura, and background extras such as Rachel Handlebars) up to unrequited crushes (remember, only ''one'' is actually shown). Add generous desire for LesYay and stir.
** Well? Don't keep us in suspense! What ''are'' the fanon ungiven names?
*** Kaori '''Aida''' and Chihiro '''Inoue'''. This is based off a panel of the manga, where characters we see the back of the heads of are called these surnames and the backs of their heads ''kinda'' look like Kaori's and Chihiro's. Sakaki or Kagura don't have any commonly agreed-upon names, though.
** A very common belief is that Osaka has forgotten her real name is Ayumu Kasuga. This was never actually seen in either manga or anime, instead being taken from the ''Tsunami Channel'' webcomic.
*** In fact, Osaka was very distraught that she had apparently been kicked out of Miss Yukari's homeroom, as she couldn't find her name on the classroom chart. Turns out, she was looking for her ''birth'' name, not ''Osaka,'' as she was listed down as.

* MahouSenseiNegima has several bits of Fanon. One piece that eventually was confirmed as canon is the idea that Asuna is BookDumb because a LaserGuidedAmnesia spell that was used on her in the past interferes with her ability to learn.

** There was a belief that Aizen's speech on the role the Hougyoku played in giving Sado and Orihime their power is a {{retcon}}. Urahara stated Orihime and Sado were born with powers that they only manifested after coming in contacting with Ichigo's vast, uncontrolled reiatsu while he was in Shinigami form. Aizen later says the Hougyoku manifests people's desires, but can only manifest what people are already capable of. He states the moment their hearts cursed their own powerlessness, they manifested their powers. {{Fanon}} assumptions about Urahara's words including assuming that Ichigo's reiatsu didn't need any help to affect Sado and Orihime, and fans ignoring Urahara failing to explain the time-lag between exposure and manifestation.

** In the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003-verse]] some of the most common names for [[spoiler:our-world Winry and Riza are "Wendy" and "Elizabeth".]]
** [[spoiler:Envy's]] original name is always "William [[spoiler:Elric]]" in fanfics. A lot of fans think it's official but it isn't. He [[spoiler:also typically dies of mercury poisoning at age 18]].

* ''Manga/DeathNote''
** Similar to [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Decoy Octopus]], Matt from ''Manga/DeathNote'' received almost no characterization in canon apart from that he loved video games, chain-smoked, and that he was extremely [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] and pretty [[BrilliantButLazy lazy]] and [[TrashOfTheTitans messy]]; despite this, he is almost universally portrayed in fanworks as the OnlySaneMan to L, Near and Mello.
** Depending on the writer Mello might be German, Russian, Prussian, or Slovenian and he almost always was born with ties to the mafia.
** Most fanfic has Matt calling Mello "Mells", while Mello calls him "Matty". [[SlashFic I think you can guess what kind of fanfic this originated in]]...
** Not to mention Matt's hair. He's never shown in any color pages of the original manga, so a hair color was never defined for him. Fanon decided his hair was a lovely maroon color or cherry red depending on what you like. When the anime came along, he was given a hair color of brown with natural highlights somewhere between navy and dark green, depending on the lighting. Guess which hair color he is still usually drawn with. Also, the fandom decided his eyes were any one of several shades of green. His canon eye color is a deep blue...but the green eyes are as entrenched in the fandom as the red hair.
*** Which miiight be because pretty much everyone else's hair is a normal color... Misa, as a pop star, probably dyed hers, and Light's could be bleached. Not that brown isn't a normal color...
** Also, at the end of ''Manga/DeathNote: Relight'', we see a {{Shinigami}} that is [[GogglesDoNothing wearing goggles]] and torn up school clothes, during the scene where [[spoiler:Ryuk looks at Light's name in his Death Note]]. People assume that [[spoiler:the Shinigami is Light himself after dying. It was stated in the series that Light was more devious than a Shinigami by Rem, so people think Light got reincarnated because of how he used the Death Note]].
*** This fanon has also sparked the overall idea that {{Shinigami}} used to be normal humans and that any human who uses a Death Note will become a {{Shinigami}} themselves after they die.
** The vast majority of fanfics involving Near say that he's albino despite this never being officially confirmed.
** Many fics also have Near and/or L described as having Asperger's Syndrome, which is also never confirmed.
** Beyond Birthday of ''Manga/DeathNote'': ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'' always calls L "Lawli" in fic as a TermsOfEndangerment. Sometimes, they are depicted as twins, or as ex-lovers ([[BreadEggsBreadedEggs and sometimes]] [[{{Twincest}} both]]); we don't know precisely ''what'' their mysterious shared past involved.
** Beyond Birthday being "born with the Shinigami eyes" is often explained that he is either a Shinigami cursed into human form, [[HalfHumanHybrid part-Shinigami]], some kind of Death Note owner who just prefers to kill with knives, or the son of female Death Note owner who made the eye deal.
** He is also frequently depicted as a cannibal and/or a rapist, despite there being no indications of him consuming blood and/or flesh from ''any'' of his victims in the novel. As for the part about being a rapist, he didn't rape any of them, either; the closest we get to that is his description of himself as an "[[BastardBoyfriend aggressive]] [[{{Seme}} top]]." (Which, yes, ''could'' mean that he's a rapist, but it could also mean that he's just into some really kinky stuff or rough sex, or that he's a player.) He never really explains what he meant by that.
** [[WordOfDante The author]] of ''FanFic/ZeroVsKira'' did the math and gives a conservative estimate that if Light did nothing but write names (taking a ten minute break to rest his hand) [[PersonOfMassDestruction Kira's kill-rate would be around 1,000 dead per hour.]]
** In many fics, Mello is said to be a practicing Catholic, because he is (particularly in the manga) seen with Catholic paraphernalia in his home and wears a rosary necklace, and also the aforementioned note on his (possible) heritage.(Notably, although Misa owns some Catholic paraphernalia, she is generally thought to just have it because it looks cool.) It certainly also would be [[AgainstMyReligion a plausible motivation to fight against Kira and his regime]], beyond merely besting Near (who he [[spoiler: technically ''gave'' the role of L's successor to in the series.]] Also, Mello refers to [[{{God}} The Almighty]] in his introduction to ''LightNovel/AnotherNote''.
** In almost every fanfic where the topic of Mello's burn scar comes up, the one who treated the burns was Matt, who almost invariably has no medical knowledge, or only some ''very'' basic medical knowledge. In the series, we don't know ''who'' did, only that the doctors (legitimate and [[BackAlleyDoctor otherwise]]) that Kira et. al. talked to did not recognize anyone resembling Linda's drawing of Mello. It would have been ''very'' difficult (though not necessarily impossible) for a non-medical person like Matt to treat burns that severe [[note]] Or, indeed, for an actual medical professional ''outside'' of a hospital or clinic setting [[/note]], and not have them get infected or anything.
** The general consensus among the fandom is that Mello left Wammy's on his own, and Matt did not join up with him until after the explosion. However, it's just as possible that they left together. Or that they ''were'' separated, but not for the entire 5-year TimeSkip. (Maybe only a few weeks or months.) It is also generally believed that they did not have any contact until Mello got burned and called Matt for help, but it's just as possible that they actually ''did'' have contact of some kind. (In fact, it would make more sense if they did have contact, since Matt is willing to give Mello the time of day and treat his wounds, but it means less {{Angst}} and drama, and [[TrueArtIsAngsty we can't have that, now can we?]]) Also, it isn't known for certain whether they actually ''were'' friends (or more) at Wammy's, or if the friendship came later, though the general consensus is that they were very close while there.
*** Another popular fan theory is that Matt wears long sleeves and gloves to hide evidence of SelfHarm and/or [[DrugsAreBad needle-drug use]] brought on by being separated from Mello. Although he had the sleeves and gloves while ''both'' he and Mello were back at Wammy's, as evidenced in Near's flashback in the manga to the Q&A session with L. [[OccamsRazor The simple (albeit boring) explanation for Matt's choice of attire is most likely just that he likes them.]]
** [[IdenticalTwinIDTag To distinguish Beyond Birthday from L]], BB is often depicted with a black shirt (with or without blood splatters), or a white shirt [[BloodIsTheNewBlack splattered in blood]]. In actuality, he dressed exactly the same as L, and is ''way'' too clean (and too smart) to run around in bloodstained clothes.

confirmed. [[note]]To be fair, he ''does'' [[GrievousBottleyHarm throw a beer bottle at Yugi, Honda, and Anzu]] while mistaking them for Jonouchi after they arrive at his house in one chapter of the manga, so it's rather hard to interpret the man as not abusive.[[/note]]

** 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.

** 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''.
