* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'''s ''Episode Prompto'' reveals that [[spoiler:Prompto was created in a magitek facility and was stolen by a Lucian soldier when he was a baby. The identity of the soldier was never explicitly stated, but many fans theorize that it was Cor Leonis, due to their father-son like relationship and Cor being the only known character who would still be a soldier 20 years ago.]]

** Fans like to believe that [[EmergencyEnergyTank E-Cans]] are Mega Man's [[TradeMarkFavoriteFood favorite drink]]. This is largely due to the [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan Ruby Spears Mega Man cartoon]], despite the fact that they are not in the same continuity, and that in ''VideoGame/SuperAdventureRockman'', Mega Man uses E-Cans by inserting them his ArmCannon into them.



** The DWN Robot Masters living in Wily's fortress in-between/during the games. Probably canon for the [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan TV series]], but that's not the same continuity.

** Marina's backstory has not been discussed in canon, however in fanon she has a DarkAndTroubledPast. This is almost a given considering she's an octoling. To go along with this, she's generally seen as escaping to the surface.
** Considering that inklings are evolved squid, they're generally viewed as laying eggs. Octolings, jellyfish, and the other species are the same way.

[[spoiler:Them becoming evil at the end of the Genocide Route is seen as either [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil going mad after seeing their friends murdered one by one,]] [[ThenLetMeBeEvil them deciding to punish the player for their cruelty by denying them happy ending]] or just [[TheSociopath being unable to see killing as anything more than a way to gain power due to no longer having a soul.]]]]

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'':
** While ''Sonic'' games aren't particularly known for deep plot-lines, one persistent fan theory would make Shadow, the series' resident [[MovesetClone Sonic clone]], ''literally'' a copy of (Super) Sonic, despite having been genetically engineered fifty years before the series began. In ''Sonic & Knuckles'', Sonic faces off against... well, Knuckles in the Hidden Palace Zone, a secret holding place for the Master Emerald. In the background of the battle is a mural that depicts a yellow, hedgehog-shaped thing flying and fighting a giant robot over the Master Emerald in a somewhat subtle bit of {{Foreshadowing}}, created thousands of years earlier by the ancient Echidna civilization. Later in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'', reading the diary of Professor Gerald, Shadow's creator, shows that the man has spent a great deal of time researching the very same Echidnas that made the above mural. This is insignificant on its own, until one considers some of the similarities between Shadow and Super Sonic; both hover above the ground in place of running, both have tussled, unkempt-looking spines, both have red eyes, both are immortal (though in different ways), and both possess extraordinary control over the Chaos Emeralds. Although the implications of Sonic being a warrior of prophecy and Shadow being a copy of him via that prophecy could easily become one of the deepest aspects of the entire plot, it unfortunately doesn't seem like it will be capitalized on.
** Suggestions based on this are that Professor Gerald was not trying to ''copy'' history; rather he believed the mural was indeed of a warrior of prophecy and in his arrogance thought he could fulfill the prophecy, which was why he created Shadow as a hedgehog of all creatures.
** Everybody knows Sonic's hydrophobic... except he ''isn't;'' he has a normal fear of drowning considering he can't swim. Sonic's "hydrophobia" is only shown in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' and has been expanded to a few episodes of ''Anime/SonicX'': he wouldn't even go to the seaside when he had a choice, but quite a few Segasonic sources even say he loves the seaside. To be fair, after [[ThatOneLevel Labyrinth Zone]], we wouldn't be surprised if it ''made'' him hydrophobic.
** Sonic's love of [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog chilidogs]] became [[AscendedFanon canon]] (see: ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Black Knight]]'').
** Also, thanks to ''Sonic and the Black Knight'' having Shadow as Lancelot and Silver as Galahad, many fans considered the similarities between the two (certain abilities, personality traits, species and chest hair) and the fact that Shadow is immortal while Silver is from the future, and decided that Shadow is who Sonic Team has in mind as Silver's eventual father. This was later {{Jossed}}, as [[WordOfGod Takashi Iizuka confirmed that Silver is not related in Shadow]].
*** A major point made is that [[Myth/KingArthur the Round Table]] had lots of good, strong and famous knights, and Silver, not being a part of the story itself, could have been any one of them, but Sonic Team chose ''Galahad'', son of Lancelot.
*** They get a special winning animation in [[VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames the Sochi Olympic Games]], too, which is intended for characters with some kind of relationship. There's a lot of father-son feeling in theirs, with Silver trying to copy Shadow and look tough, when most of his winning poses have him floating around like a kid.
*** They're also expies of [[Anime/DragonBallZ Vegeta and Trunks]], who were father and son.
** One relatively decent [[SelfInsertFic self-insert]] character in [=SatAM=] ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' fanfic, Bookshire Draftwood the elderly raccoon doctor, grew so popular and filled such an obvious hole in the cast that he actually became part of fanon. Archie Comics subsequently tried to make their own doctor character, Dr. Quack, but he was considerably less sympathetic and endearing and thus wasn't so well-received by the fanbase.
** Elsewhere in ''Sonic the Hedgehog'', the game ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' gave the titular character the ability to carry and use weapons, usually guns of one type or another. Some fans had already decided that, because (in canon) someone very important to him was shot, Shadow [[DoesntLikeGuns hated guns and would never use them]].
*** To be fair, reasons for this assumption also included his rather pronounced superiority complex and the fact that he could throw Chaos Spears around with his mind, thus rendering common ballistic projectiles somewhat redundant.
** Also G-Merl's name (alternatively G-mel or Gemerl) is fanon; ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Advance|Trilogy}} 3'' and WordOfGod implies that he's really Emerl from ''Sonic Battle''. Also in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', Eggman's robot sidekick (named Orbot in ''[[VideoGame/SonicColors Colors]]'') is given the fanon name Ergo, because he says "Ergo" a lot.
*** There was a theory going around for a while that the Babylonians built Emerl, due to the text calling the awakened Gizoid a god at one point, and the legend stating that Babylon was destroyed by an angry god for their hubris. Naturally, ''[[VideoGame/SonicChronicles Chronicles]]'' laid this one to rest.
** ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' created a bit of a ContinuitySnarl with EnsembleDarkhorse Blaze the Cat; in ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}}'' (her introduction) she was supposedly from another universe, while in ''2006,'' she was from the future. However, in the end of ''2006,'' she was sealed in another dimension. While ''2006'' ended with a ResetButton, fans attempted to reconcile the two plot lines by stating that the dimension Blaze sealed herself in was the one from ''Rush''. ''Rush Adventure'', which was released after ''[='06=]'', Josses this theory, as it's stated that Blaze belongs to a royal family that has existed in that dimension for generations. [[WordOfGod According to Iizuka at Summer Boom 2012]], Blaze is indeed from the Sol Dimension (as seen in ''Rush''), although that doesn't quite explain why she's in Crisis City in ''[[VideoGame/SonicGenerations Generations]]'' with the implications that she remembers being at Crisis City (unless you want to HandWave it as a MythologyGag [[ResetButton of sorts]]).
** A very common concept in fan fiction is that only certain people, usually called "Chaos Adepts," can use the Emeralds and their powers. Usually, they also can't be human. In canon, however, anyone who has actually tried has been shown to harness the power of the Chaos Emeralds, with about two-thirds of the main cast using them at least once. The closest this comes to canon is Shadow and Knuckles, who have a few unique powers due to being genetically engineered for them and having a connection to the Master Emerald, respectively; and Omega once implying that Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles have similar abilities to Shadow.
*** Related is the idea that Tails can't use them, despite WordOfGod stating that the only reason he doesn't is because he's young and inexperienced; having used them since then; and Omega, as mentioned, referring to Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles as "Shadow-like."
** FunnyAnimal characters are described as "Mobians" even by those who acknowledge the games take place on Earth. This is canon in other media but not in the games.
** Any time someone draws Amy as a teenage or adult, she's depicted with long quills that go past her shoulders.
** Besides shippers, Maria and Shadow's relationship is usually presented as a sibling one.
** Quite a few fans think Amy's name is short for "Amelia".
** A large chunk of the fandom is slow on the intake that the games take place on Earth, so it's more common than otherwise for the planet Sonic lives on to be called "Mobius" (even if the fan work otherwise follows game canon).
** Bean and Bark as villains in this. Their official bios don't imply they're villainous at all, however Bean's mischievous nature combined wth his bomb usage and Bark's imposing design and mean-looking expression made fans believe they were. This isn't helped by the bios being Japanese-only. Sometimes they were an outright TerribleTrio with Fang. It was eventually made AscendedFanon in ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' and ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''.
