* Some pre-Sainthood "real names" for the main cast of ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' have been popping up in fics, particularly the last name "Amamiya" for Ikki and Shun. This in spite of the fact that only their constellation-based Saint titles have ever been used in the series proper.

** The idea of Mitsumasa Kido being Zeus, who would have appeared in the manga's final arc had it not been cancelled, is very popular in Latin American and European fandom. This comes from Kido being Saori/Athena's adoptive father (and the biological father of all the Bronze Saints in the manga, which is typical of the mythological Zeus) and how one of his posthumous appearances is accompanied by lightning.

** WordOfGod is that haibane ''are not'' angels, however the series contains so much heavenly imagery and the MindScrew final episode suggests that [[spoiler:Reki [[DrivenToSuicide killed herself]] in her past life]] that fans don believe that (alternatively they're not angels ''yet''). The series is seen by almost all fans as taking place in purgatory. The Haibane died and are waiting to either reincarnate or be sent to heaven. The circumstances of their deaths however vary between fans. The most popular two theories are that the characters all died of suicide or that their dreams suggest how they died (Reki [[spoiler:let herself be ran over by a train]], Rakka either died by falling accidentally or killed herself, Kuu died in an airplane accident, Nemu died in her sleep, etc).

* ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'': The genders of Bit-Beasts. Dragoon is the only confirmed male due to being the only one with voiced lines. It's common for people to assume that almost all Bit-Beasts are male due to the English dub using male pronouns for all of them. In the original Japanese track they are all referred to with gender-neutral pronouns, so they're really a case of AmbiguousGender (if they're not NoBiologicalSex). The ones that are popularly singled out as female are Dranzer, Galux and Wolborg. Galux and Wolborg ARE implied, but not confirmed, to be female in the anime. Dranzer has no such implication, but it remains popular to think of it as female.

It's also believed she is an ex-adult movie actress who is depressed over her her past, which is implied but never confirmed in the episode.

Added DiffLines:

** Very few characters in the series have last names, in fact, the manga mentions last names have disappeared from use, yet fans insist on giving them last names. The biggest offenders are:
*** Bulma '''Briefs''', though this misconception is caused by the dub. Bulma’s father is called Dr. Brief and the dub assumed that was his last name because that’s how it’s usually done in real life. However, in the Dragon Ball universe, that’s just his title followed by first name. The dub also called Bulma’s mom “Mrs. Briefs, which cemented Brief as a last name. She was just called “Bulma’s Mom” in the manga and anime, though supplemental materials revealed her name is “Panchy”.
*** Videl '''Satan''', another misconception also caused by the dub when Mr. Satan’s name was censored as “Hercule”. Thus, fans assumed his name is “Hercule Satan”, when in reality, Hercule is a dub-only name, Mr. Satan is his ring name, and his actual name is revealed only in supplemental as Mark (an anagram of ‘Akuuma’ in Japanese, meaning ‘devil’ keeping the theme name with his daughter).
** In fact, canonically the only characters in the show who do have last names are the '''Son''' family, our main characters Son Goku, Son Gohan and Son Goten. When Gohan went to high school, other students even pointed out how unusual it was that he had a last name. Also, of course, Son Gohan Sr.
*** Contrary to popular belief though, not Chi-Chi. She is never called that way in the series, and Chinese women do no change their last name in marriage.

** 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...

** The rather popular fan theory that all of the iterations of ''Evangelion'' (the anime vs the manga, for example) are in different timelines is just that: a fan theory. Though, it does rather nicely explain Kaworu's actions and attitudes towards Shinji, as well as explain some otherwise bizarre scenery, especially in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion''.



** Fans also love to justify Kallen's SpellMyNameWithAnS by claiming she goes by "Karen" some of the time, usually using one name in public and one when she's doing Black Knight stuff. For some reason, they usually claim that she uses the {{Engrish}} "Kallen" when she's posing as a good Britannian girl and the correct English "Karen" when she's acting as a Japanese national.

** Fans will often associate Nanoha as a lover of strawberry and cream based deserts and foods even though there is little to no evidence of this matter.



** People agree that Lucy's mother died on July 7th, X777, the same date as the dragons' disappearance, despite only the year that she passed away having been shown. [[spoiler:The manga eventually revealed that this date was when she fell deathly ill, but it wasn't for a few days later that she died]].
** It's assumed by the pirating crowd that Natsu and likely Gajeel are over 400 years old. Even if they were seen as children, they couldn't pass through a barrier stopping people over 80, their ages are listed as unknown, and the 400-year-old Zeref recognized Natsu, so the theory is well supported. The only flaw, as anyone who actually buys the volumes might know, is that Mashima stated in a Q&A section that this is not the case. [[spoiler:The manga later confirms it's because the two were unknowing hosts for their dragon parents, who are presumably much older than 80.]]



* In just about every ''Literature/SoundEuphonium'' fanfic, Kumiko is lesbian and Reina is bisexual.

In the original book, Kumiko has a male love interest but all romance between the two were written-out of the anime (instead it became unrequited). Reina is [[TeacherStudentRomance in love with her music teacher]], which is why fans see her as bisexual rather than lesbian. Yuuko and Natsuki are also pinned as gay (and are almost always shipped together)

** Another example is the Fanon {{OTP}} of Kyon and Haruhi. This is likely due to three factors. 1. The rather popular anime is missing a lot of narration that counters the Kyon/Haruhi pairing, 2. The first novel and some of the second tend to focus on that pairing, but we haven't received the later novels here in America, which tend to not, and 3. Since the first novel is ''very'' Kyon/Haruhi oriented, much of the evidence in the later novels contrary to this pairing tends to be {{hand wave}}d or used as confirmation bias. It's rather shocking how insistent people are that ''this'' is the official couple.

** Another example is the Fanon {{OTP}} of Kyon and Haruhi. This is likely due to three factors. 1. The rather popular anime is missing a lot of narration that counters the Kyon/Haruhi pairing, 2. The first novel and some of the second second, which accounts for the larger part of the anime, tend to focus on that pairing, but we haven't received the later novels here in America, novels, which tend to not, haven't been adapted yet, and 3. Since the first novel is ''very'' Kyon/Haruhi oriented, much of the evidence in the later novels contrary to this pairing tends to be {{hand wave}}d or used as confirmation bias. It's rather shocking how insistent people are that ''this'' is the official couple.
