** A less popular but not uncommon piece of fanon is that Tara and, by extension, Willow were stoners. This is supported only by Tara wearing a shirt with a marijuana leaf on it in one episode and a line in a later episode that implied the two watch "Series/SpongebobSquarepants" while high. Flimsy prompting, yet the fanon seems to have caught on.

* Most members of the ''{{Sliders}}'' fanbase tend to hold the fanon claim that the Professor Arturo who [[DroppedABridgeOnHim had his brain sucked out, was shot and left to die on an exploding planet]] in "The Exodus, Part 2" was a double of the team's real Arturo, who was left behind by the team (by accident) in "Post Traumatic Slide Syndrome". This is supported by producer Tracy Tormé, who said in interviews afterwards that there was a loose plan to have the "real Arturo" be found when the Slider team return to the planet he was stuck on, but he was [[ExecutiveMeddling shown the door]] before he ever had a chance to put this plan into motion.

* ''GreysAnatomy'' fanfics in which George survives invariably have him specialize in trauma surgery, thanks to a one-off line from Owen that he should. Lexie is quite often a plastics fellow, probably because her two most significant love interests both went into plastics.

* On ''GilmoreGirls'', the character Tristin repeatedly called Rory "Mary" as a nod to her innocent appearance and actions. In fanon, Rory and other characters often call Tristin "Bible Boy" though it was never spoken on-screen.

** Fanon is so pervasive among Trekkies that many of the supposed "canon violations" of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' were not canon violations at all, but merely new facts which blew away established fanon. Among them was the idea that Starfleet did not exist prior to the forming of the Federation, that Vulcans were, one and all, the noble, honorable people that Spock himself was (despite the starship-load of evidence to the contrary) and were incapable of lying or arrogance, that humans did not encounter Klingons until the early 23rd century (based on a line from McCoy about when hostilities began), that the initial encounter with Klingons led to decades of war and the loss of much life (based on Picard's declaration that first contact with Klingons was "disastrous"), that the one-world government on Earth was formed in 2150 (based off speculation from Dr. Crusher about just one country holding out), that Andorians have four genders (based off a line that Andorian wedding ceremonies require four people), not to mention the apparently large number of fans who apparently believed that the [[RubberForeheadAliens Klingon foreheads]] were a mutation that happened between the original series and the movies. Rather than accept that the foreheads were natural but something caused them to go away for a while, fans were vocal that Klingons of the past had smooth foreheads, and that this was canon. Even the episodes explaining this didn't shut them up. Much of this fanon was aided by ''Star Trek'' novels, which are not canon, but it doesn't stop fans from accepting them as such.

*** Doubles as slightly AscendedFanon, as Heather Morris, Naya Rivera, and Sugar's portrayer Vanessa Lengies heard about this theory and ran with it, having scenes with subtle nods to the fanon.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': When Stargate Command started using the gate retrieved from Antarctica, fans noticed that the point-of-origin glyph was still the "sun setting over a pyramid" one from the Giza gate. This is understandable since that symbol is associated with both the show and the SGC in-universe. However we know for a fact that the Antarctic gate had a different point-of-origin symbol (which looked like the sun rising over the curve of a planet). Fanon has it the glyph was vandalized by the Jaffa and Goa'uld that used the gate after the Giza one was buried. Since the pyramid is a symbol of Goa'uld power, this actually makes perfect sense; but why did they leave the glyph on the Dial-Home Device intact?

* ''Series/TwentyFour'': Though only David Palmer had his political party association openly identified onscreen (he's a Democrat), fans have gone on to identify the series later presidents parties based upon this initial info.
** John Keeler, having run against Palmer, is a Republican, as is Charles Logan, who was Keeler's vice president. Same goes for Hal Gardner, who succeded Logan.
** Wayne Palmer, having served as his brother's White House chief of staff and WordOfGod says defeated Gardner in the next election, is a Democrat. Sames goes for his VP, Noah Daniels.
** Allison Taylor, having defeated Daniels in the next election, is a Republican.
** James Heller, who was Keeler's secretary of defense, is also presumed to be a Republican.

* Fanon for ''TheLoneGunmen'' can be traced back to a handful of very old fanfics. These include: the idea that Langley used to be addicted to drugs, and giving him the nickname "Ree," the speculation that Frohike had served in Vietnam as a sniper, and that Byers was a widower. Another fanon element [[FanonDiscontinuity defiantly ignores]] the aptly-named episode "JumpTheShark" to state that [[UnreliableNarrator Fletcher]] was lying through his teeth (with the Gunmen's strangely OOC behavior being offered up as "proof") and/or that the Gunmen faked their deaths.
** According to the Season 10 continuation comic, [[spoiler: the latter]].
