** Let's not forget the idea that the "modern" Mario, born in the Mushroom Kingdom as seen in ''Yoshi's Island'', is the son of Jumpman, the "original" Mario. This seems derived from Rare's ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' series -- in which DK's elderly father Cranky claims to be the original Donkey Kong who fought with Mario.

''VideoGame/YoshisIslandDS'' seems to support this idea by having Baby Donkey Kong, implied to be the modern version of the character, appear alongside Baby Mario. On the other hand ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' throws a wrench in this by having Pauline, who should be middle-aged or older according to this fanon, appear alongside Peach for the first time.

** There is a consensus that Mario and Luigi were upgraded to FirstNameBasis between ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''. Between this period is when they really began becoming friends, and is considered when the romance between Peach and Mario really began. This fanon is used to explain why Peach suddenly went from going by her surname (Princess Toadstool) to her given name (Princess Peach) in-series. Later games partially contest this idea; both ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime'' and ''VideoGame/YoshisIslandDS'' suggest that the Mario Bros. have been close to Peach [[ChildhoodFriends since they were infants/toddlers]] (''Partners in Time'' even sees Mario and Luigi invited to the castle for play dates with the baby princess).

** 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]].

** One notable and oddly widespread bit of fanon portrays Chris and Claire Redfield as being part American Indian, which seems to have its roots in George Romero's unused ''RE'' screenplay, as well as with the mistaken belief that the name Redfield is of American Indian origins (it's actually Scottish).

* {{Franchise/Ultima}}: Ever since the reveal in Ultima VII that the [[VideoGame/WingCommander Kilrathi]] exist in the same universe as Britannia, many fans have speculated that the "TIE-Fighters" you fought in Ultima I were actually [[SpaceFighter Dralthi]].

** In terms of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', there's several theories going about that Takumi would've massacred the unassuming Port Dia from ''Conquest's'' [[ThatOneLevel infamous]] Chapter 10. [[spoiler:And given the fact that Takumi was already possessed at that point and the fact that Hoshido is heavily implied to have]] [[spoiler: [[HeWhoFightsMonsters go off the deep end a little,]]]] [[spoiler:[[FridgeHorror it's definitely not outside the realm of possibility.]]]]

** The romantic {{subtext}} between [[LesYay Chie and Yukiko]] is so damn evident and "in your face" that it almost feels {{Anvilicious}}, even if both of them can fall in love with the protagonist. Because of this, many fics portray them as a couple, even when they are not the focus of the story.

** If an Avatar has the chance to be either male or female, fans usually split the original and localized names between them: other than the case of [[spoiler:Morgan/Mark]] as detailed in the ''Awakening'' section, their parents will be referred to as Robin if male and Reflet if female. The male Avatar of ''Fates'' will usually get the name Corrin while the female gets Kamui, and a Summoner in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes Heroes]]'' will be referred to as Kiran if male and Ekura/Eclat if female.
