* Suna as an (often aromantic) {{asexual}} is a frequent headcanon in the ''Manga/MyLoveStory'' fandom.

* Suna as an (often aromantic) {{asexual}} is a frequent headcanon in the ''Manga/MyLoveStory'' fandom.fandom.
* ''Manga/DragonBall'': In the 2014 full color re-release of the manga, Creator/AkiraToriyama revealed that Android 16 was modeled off of Dr. Gero[=/=]Android 20's son, a Red Ribbon Army soldier who was killed by enemy gunfire. However, plenty of fans don't know or recognize that last fact and instead believe that Gero's son was killed by Goku during the events of the original series, which is why Dr. Gero wanted revenge against him. This mistaken impression is probably aided by the fact that in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', Goku ''did'' kill the younger Gero (as seen in a rather well-made original animation in Episode 56).

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': It's usually believed that Todoroki no longer has sensibility in his burnt scars, or has very little, not enough to feel anything but slight touches. This is usually brought up in slash fics between him and Midoriya.

** 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.

** 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.


Added DiffLines:

** Fans are also fond of referring to the first season as "R1", since the second was called ''R2'' and they seem to assume the R stands for "Round" or something similar (this also extends to calling ''Lelouch of the Resurrection'' "R3" for short). Officially the first season was only ever referred to by its full title or simply "''Code Geass'' Season 1", while WordOfGod said that "R2" stood for '''R'''eturn and '''R'''evolution, the two things Lelouch accomplished over the course of the season.

** Man fans are set on the fact that Inuyokai, and canine/vulpine youkai in general, are very into having pack dynamics, which includes exchanging scents, grooming one another, sleeping together (in the literal meaning, curled up on a pile), and even semi communal raising of children. There also is an alpha, beta, omega and such that plays into how the pack is structured, despite this not really being touched upon much by the Canon.
**Multiple types of Inuyoukai are popular as well, frequently including silver/white, black, and red, sometimes with different social standings and culture depending on the color

* ''Manga/D.Gray-man'':
** There is a common belief that once noah awaken they stop aging and are immortal. This is because Road Kamelot has kept her appearance for the last 35 years and fans assumed that this is the same for every noah. Actually, volume 24 reveals that Noahs DO ages, only slower than humans.
** A good amount of the fandom think that Road and Nea were lovers 35 years ago. This is because she seems to want to protect him and bear no hatred for him unlike the other Noah whom he killed.
** The hair color (and eye color ) of the characters. Some consider that Lenalee's hair are green or purple. Kanda's are often believe to be blue or black. And let's not even start on the third exorcists. All this is because of the author's constantly changing the colors on the color spreads and because of the anime. Actually the only way to be sure is if there is any clear mention in the manga or declaration of the author herself. Lenalee's hair are actually stated to be black, Allen's and Wisely's to be white and Lavi to be red-haired and there is no mention regarding the other characters.
*** Noah's skin color are subjected to that as well for the exact same reasons. There are believed to be gray by some, brown by others or even black. There is actually no clear statement about it in the manga.

** The fandom splits the Arrancar Arc into five arcs: the "Arrancar Invasion Arc", "Hueco Mundo Arc", "Turn Back the Pendulum Arc", "Fake Karakura Town Arc" and "Deicide Arc", even organising its TVTropes entries accordingly. This is despite WordOfGod calling it a single, long Arrancar Arc in interviews. The manga itself backs up the interviews; the beginning of the Arrancar Arc (Chapter 182) is given a rare subtitle, called "Trigger for a New Concerto" to kick it off, and Volume 48 confirms at the end of Chapter 423 that the Arrancar Arc has ended and that the next volume will kick off a new arc, the Lost Agent Arc. The Arrancar Arc is therefore a single continuous arc spanning Chapters 182-423 (Volumes 21-48) and not five separate arcs as the fandom tends to think.

** Similar to [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Decoy Octopus]], Matt 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.

** [[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.)

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' has a grand JigsawPuzzlePlot involving the nature of the last human stronghold on earth, a country-sized landmass surrounded by fifty-foot walls meant to keep the man-eating giants outside and the humans safe inside, only for everything to go horribly wrong when a titan tall enough to kick in the outermost door appears. As expected, several conspiracies are gradually being unveiled, [[spoiler: groups of humans capable of turning into titans amongst them]], but over thirty chapters in and the readers are still lacking in definitive answers. The manga goes as far as to hide major plot points in easter eggs for promotional materials at times, and chooses to drop subtle hints about things rather than solidly confirming facts unless necessary or the sort of thing that the readers can't figure out based on subtle hints. Naturally, a lot of Fanon is the result. As such, the WMG tab contains an entire section for things that are known for sure, and things that the readers are pretty sure about but are not yet definitively confirmed.

* Like ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' and the Kyuubi, Kurama from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' is believed to be in constant telepathic communication with "Youko", his demon self. Futhermore, "Youko" is very bored with being stuck inside a 15-year-old virgin and would very much like it to be sexy tiems nao. This one you can blame on the dub: the very first time Kurama transforms back, Youko Kurama's voice tells him "it's up to you now", and calls him Suichi, his dub human name; he answers back in his normal voice. In the Japanese version, Youko Kurama's voice begins the line, and normal-Kurama's voice finishes it as he transforms, implying one consciousness. Also, "Jaganshi" and "Youko" are thought to be Hiei and Kurama's names -- they're technically titles, referring to what type of {{youkai}} they are, and the word "Jaganshi" ("Evil Eye Master") is only used in one episode title.

** The Hogyoku is often believed to be able to 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''.
** Large parts of the fandom believe Aizen is immortal because he has the Hougyoku inside him. However, the manga didn't actually claim that. The person who knew the most, Urahara, says Aizen is "almost impossible" to kill but never claims he's completely impossible to kill. It's the panicky, judgemental Central 46 who interpret Aizen's state as "immortal". However, Urahara's words suggest that interpretation is inaccurate, something a large part of the fandom tend to ignore.
** Arrancars' holes are...sensitive around the edges, at least according to fans.
** There's a persistent belief within the fandom that a person loses their memories when they move on to the afterlife, reinforced by the first movie which claims the same thing. However, the canon does not support this belief. When Ichigo's group first arrives in Soul Society, they meet Shibata whose soul they saved when he was trapped in the cockatiel. He completely remembers everything that happened while he was alive, and while he was being protected by Sado. Shibata's adopted brother has been in Soul Society much longer and remembers exactly when and where he died (1947). Hisana and Rukia died together in the World of the Living and Hisana never, ever forgot they were sisters. Renji once comments that the driving goal of all people who die and come to Soul Society is to search through Soul Society to try and find the blood relatives they had in life. When Mayuri talks about all the dead Quincies he experimented on, it's clear they all have memories from when they were alive and their beliefs remain intact; certainly Souken's memories never faded after his death, as Mayuri uses them to taunt Uryuu.

** 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]].

** The relationship between the spirit of the Ring and his host body, Bakura Ryou (in fanon the spirit takes the name Bakura or Yami Bakura and the host takes the name Ryou), is grossly exaggerated in many ways, the most prominent of which is the spirit being heavily abusive and Bakura being weak and frightful of him. First off, Bakura is hardly even aware of the fact that the spirit is there, considering him as more of a voice in his head. Secondly, the spirit can't form his own solid body, so if he were to abuse Bakura, he would have to damage his own host body, which doesn't serve him in any way, so he'd never do it.
*** The spirit ''does'' injure Bakura's body in the manga, but only to stop Bakura from interfering with the spirit's attempt to gain the Millennium Puzzle.

* As several details in the ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' franchise can only be found in [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary materials]] like the [[AudioAdaptation Sound Stages]] and [[ComicBookAdaptation manga]] which the english speaking fanbase wasn't aware of for sometime, western fans took some 'facts' as a matter of course, such as Nanoha copying Fate's Bind spell (she didn't, Yuuno taught her how to do a Bind in the very first Sound Stage, which took place between Episodes 2 and 3) and Reinforce Zwei being the [[SleepModeSize weakened form of the first Reinforce]] (she's not, she's a completely new Unison Device Hayate designed with the help of Mariel and Yuuno as mentioned in the last Sound Stage of ''A's''). Most of these have died down ever since English-speaking fans learned about the supplementary materials and [[FanTranslation began translating them]].
** Also, Nanoha and Fate are generally considered to be romantically involved. While they are HeterosexualLifePartners with a lot of LesYay, it's never made canon. Which can lead to some confusion when people go into the series having heard them described as "girlfriends".
*** There's also that bit where Vivio considers both Nanoha and Fate her mothers muddying the waters.
*** On the other hand, they're never actually confirmed ''not'' to be a couple, either. Their relationship is [[HideYourLesbians just ambiguous enough]] that they could either be lovers or very close friends.
*** For that matter, despite what people may claim, none of the other possible pairings are ever actually confirmed either. Some of the characters have expressed interest, but none of them ever get a RelationshipUpgrade, except for Chrono and Amy (which happened off-screen).

** Many fans are also convinced that Mikuru is actually a manipulative girl sent to the past specifically to appeal to Kyon. This is never confirmed in any way (or even mentioned after Koizumi throws the idea out there) and in fact what little character development Mikuru has gotten so far seems to suggest that she is actually not very confident in her abilities.
*** Well, that's true of the present Mikuru. Future Mikuru, on the other hand, is a bit manipulative.

* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'''s CanonImmigrant Ryo Akiyama's Wonderswan games were never released in English and only one saw a fan translation. However, one fan extrapolated from his and Ken Ichijouji's friendship in the games that Ryo also knew Ken's older brother. Over the years this extrapolation and its getting picked up by other fans has quietly snowballed into the odd ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' fan with an interest in pre-series Ken believing the three of them are friends is canon.

* In the ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' fandom, everyone seems to think that Reborn and the other Arcobaleno will age and deage as time passes by. This probably stemmed from Lal Mirch who, after ten years, had become an adult once again. But that only happened because she possessed a corrupted pacifier and isn't really an Arcobaleno since Colonnello took her place. There is no real evidence that the other Arcobaleno will age and de-age over time.
** This may have also stemmed form Luce, Aria, and Uni who looked incredibly alike. They were thought to be the same person (Luce) but it was eventually revealed that Luce is Aria's mother and Uni's grandmother.

* On a great many fansites for Manga/ElfenLied, Silpelit Number 3, who infected Kurama causing him to sire Mariko as a Diclonius, is supposed to be the older sister of Nana. I personally have scoured the manga and the anime up and down, and can say there is no evidence for this. It appears to be a mistake one person made that was then lifted literally verbatim on each successive site.
* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' has a couple of typical Fanon elements that came up much more often in the high days of the fandom, but persist in the fanfic that still exists, despite most of it being Jossed by the addition of ''Genbu Kaiden'' and the novels published after the anime ended.

** Tasuki doesn't like women because of his four older sisters always giving him a hard time, fanfics usually write him as being gay, even if they're not yaoi fics.

* For whatever reason the general consensus amongst ''Manga/FairyTail'' fans is that Sting, who is himself blond, would refer to Lucy as blondie. Since he calls her "Lucy-san" in the only scene in which he speaks with her thus far, there is no basis for this.

** Also it is generally accepted that Edward's pants are leather, despite the fact that they would be, as Vic Mignogna points out, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXU5zhF3-HA "hard to fight in. Ed's gotta be smarter than that."]] Conversely, as Vic does not write or draw for the series, it is hard to determine the exact material of Ed's pants lest Arakawa-sensei decides to enlighten us for herself.

* Half of the ''Anime/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.
