** Due to the clunky Mako controls in ''[=ME1=]'', some fanfics have Shepard be a bad driver, with the squad have varying amounts of fear to Shepard's driving. This is kinda reinforced by a line Liara says in during the Lair of the Shadow Broker.

After ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' was released, the Fanon became that [=N7s=] in general are terrifying drivers; the Ryder twins are [[UpToEleven even worse than Shepard]], and they presumably learned how to drive from their father, who was one of the first [=N7s=].

** The Hero's Spirit/Shade from ''Twilight Princess'' is widely believed to be an ancestor of Link, due to his title of "Hero" (which has been given to a few other Links in the series; for example ''[=OoT=]'' Link is the "Hero of Time", while ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' Link is the "Hero of Winds"), his words that he accepted the role of hero long ago, his choice of words in addressing Link, and implications that he, too, was a wielder of the Triforce of Courage (which is always given to Link, whereas Wisdom goes to Zelda and Ganon gets Power). This was once all meticulously detailed on the ''Zelda'' Wiki, with the Link from ''Ocarina of Time'' as the front runner for the speculated identity of this character [[http://www.zeldauniverse.net/zelda-news/hyrule-historia-reveals-oot-links-cameo-in-twilight-princess/ And it turns out that]] [[IKnewIt fan speculation was right.]]

** Because [[TheStinger the final scene]] of ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' [[spoiler:reveals the events of the game to haven taken place 870 million years prior to the ''Street Fighter'' series (or at least [[AlternateUniverse some version of that universe]])]], many fans assume the [[WordOfGod officially]] [[CanonDiscontinuity non-canon]] Lost Episodes are part of ''SF'' lore and use their ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever Vs.]]'' series-style [[PowerCreepPowerSeep exaggerations of character ability]] when discussing how the various fighters measure up to one another. (ex. "If [[VideoGame/FinalFight Cody]] is deemed to be [[WorthyOpponent a worthy challenge]] by [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Oni]], who can fight evenly with Asura, does this mean Cody can take on Asura?")

** It's accepted by many that Mike from ''SFI'' and Balrog (M.Bison in Japan) are the same fighter, but Capcom can't confirm this for legal reasons (i.e. the character being an {{expy}} of Mike Tyson).

** Interestingly enough, some fanon aspects have been confirmed in canon. The character Keine, while originally only shown as a "protector of the human village" with some connection to history through her abilities, was almost always portrayed as a schoolteacher in {{dojinshi}} -- and then was confirmed as being a teacher in the second book. The series' creator is extremely supportive of fanworks of all types, so it's very likely a case of [[AscendedFanon fanon turning into canon]].

** Two nameless mini-boss type fights from ''The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil'' were later named after their fanon nicknames by ZUN: [[http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Daiyousei Daiyousei]] (lit.: greater fairy) and [[http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Koakuma Koakuma]] (lit.: little devil). They haven't had any canon appearance since then but are used consistently as foils for related characters (Cirno and Patchouli, respectively) in fan-works.
** There has been fan art that actually separated canon and fanon Sakuya into two distinct personalities (Flowering Sakuya and Luna Dial Sakuya, respectively). A lot of people on the forum he frequents mistook Luna for the canon personality. [[InternetBackdraft Then a certain well-known dojin circle released an anime adaptation...]]

** Lei Wulong and Bruce Irvin being former police partners. Their official bios for ''[=T2=]'' have Bruce as an unrelated Muay Thai champion being targeted by a local mafia, and Lei's ''actual'' nameless partner getting involved in a fight with the killer on the same plane Bruce was. Bruce has never been a police at all, and his relation with Lei in-game is just because he was involved in the accident and is Kazuya's bodyguard.
** Ganryu having amassed a fortune through gambling/illegal dealings, and his money being stolen by Yoshimitsu. Ganryu's ''[=T1=]'' profile states he was only a very disrespectful sumo, which cost him his Yokozuna promotion. There's no mention of any fortune in canon, and the money Yoshimitsu gets in his ending is officially stated to be from the sacking of the Mishima Zaibatsu's vault.

** Nina and Anna blaming each other for their father's death. Anna's profile in ''[=T1=]'' clearly states Anna hates Nina because [[ParentalFavoritism their father preferred her]], since she embraced the assassin career while Anna preferred a normal lifestyle, a decision her father never approved of. According to the original ''[=T2=]'' bios, their father died between the first and second game, of seemingly natural causes, while requesting on his deathbed for them to stop their rivalry without success (save one instance in Anna's ''[=T2=]'' ending, [[TruceZone where they make a truce while visiting his grave]]).

** Roger and Alex being trained by Armor King and later transported to a wildlife preservation area (sometimes specifically noted to be in Australia) by Jun. The entirety of Roger and Alex's story in ''[=T2=]'' is that they were created by Dr. Bosconovitch as part of a experiment for future military use by the Mishima Zaibatsu, but were then stolen away by Dr. Abel and kept in his secret laboratory. The only facts known beyond this are that Roger returned to his family and lived a peaceful life after the Second King of Iron Fist Tournament, as stated in Roger Jr.'s ''[=T5=]'' prologue. The first insinuation was made to explain why the animals were {{Moveset Clone}}s of King and Armor King, and while the second would be in-character for [[FriendToAllLivingThings Jun]] (who was an officer for the WWWC, a wildlife protection agency, at the time and entered the tournament in part because of the Zaibatsu smuggling protected animals), there is no official connection between them. [[note]]Jun does have positive affinity towards all of the animal characters in ''Tag Tournament 2'', but [[DreamMatchGame that game]] is [[CanonDiscontinuity non-canon]] and, as already mentioned, the trait fits her character.[[/note]]

** The DealWithTheDevil Kazuya did to survive being thrown off a cliff, only ever mentioned in the OVA. According to Devil's profile in ''[=T2=]'', Kazuya wasn't even ''aware'' of his existence, and the fall's survival is credited to the Mishima lineage's NighInvulnerability. On this subject, Angel's profile never mentions anything about being "Kazuya's good side" and instead claims she and Devil are "the two sides of the same coin."
** Speaking of [[Anime/TekkenTheMotionPicture the OVA]], its depiction of the relationship between Jun and Kazuya, such as the two first meeting as children and Jun explicitly being Kazuya's MoralityPet, is commonly applied to the games. Their standing with one another in-canon has always been incredibly vague; Jun is drawn to Kazuya because of the mysterious power she senses around him and hopes to free him from, whereas Kazuya's narration of the ''[=T2=]'' story in the sixth game's Scenario Campaign has him merely recall how the mother of his son approached him "without fear" and was "mysterious" without offering anything more. ''[=TTT2=]'', on the other hand, shows that neither character has any affinity, positive ''or'' negative, for the other despite their past history as lovers.
** Wang Jinrei being Ling Xiaoyu's grandfather. While Xiaoyu indeed refers to him as "Grandpa" during the interlude to their fight in Wang's ''[=T5=]'' story, this is not meant to be taken literally, but as a colloquialism in the vein of calling a random elder "Gramps." Wang is simply a distant relative of Xiaoyu's who once trained her in the past.

* Similarly to the Sunny example above, Amy from the ''VideoGame/{{Soul|Series}}'' series is almost invariably called "Amy Sorel" in fandom due to her being adopted by Raphael, but officially she's never called anything but "Amy", and Raphael himself has no reasons to actually give her his last name, given the Sorel clan not only betrayed him to save face, but fell into obscurity shortly afterward, leaving no social or economical advantage to use it. Her age (which officially has always been "Unknown") is sometimes stated to be 14 thanks to someone editing it in in [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]], and people wrongly believing it came from the official site.

* A relatively minor theory in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'': because of her interactions with her female crewmates and friends, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen]] [[MsFanservice Browning]] is seen by the fandom as [[BiTheWay bisexual]], given her [[TheTease teasing and flirtatiousness]] with [[LesYay both sexes]]; made more evident in the sequel during her scenes with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia]] [[RobotGirl Loveless]]. In fact, they take this further to AnythingThatMoves when monsters show up, some of them composed of CombatTentacles. However, it's important to note she's [[SingleTargetSexuality only ever interested in getting the attention]] of her boyfriend, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Kyosuke]] [[TheStoic Nanbu]], so this piece of {{Fanon}} is slight, and not hard evidenced enough. Still, many fanworks would rather pair of up with other girls than guys.

*** Speaking of Robot Masters, fan works are more susceptible to the idea of female Robot Masters/Robot Mistresses, who are barely seen in-universe. (The only canonical [=RMs=] of that nature are Light bots [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Roll]] and [[VideoGame/MegaMan9 Splash Woman]], plus Plum from the ''Battle & Chase'' spin-off racer.) This actually seeped into other albeit non-official continuities, as the manga for ''VideoGame/MegaMan6'' had its incarnation of Centaur Man [[SweetPollyOliver revealed to be a woman with long, flowing hair]] and [[ComicBook/MegaMan the Archie comic]] introduced Tempo/Quake Woman, an OC creation of a former colleague of Light's named Dr. Lalinde.

** Fanart of the Hero of Time as an adult post-''Majoras Mask'' have a high tendency to give him a ponytail, even prior to ''Breath of the Wild''. He is also usually depicted a Hylian soldier or a bodyguard/knight to Zelda. Though he is the Link most prone to ShipToShipCombat, canonically fans usually pin him ending up with either Malon (''Twilight Princess'''s Link is implied to be a descendant of him, lives in a rural village, isn't royalty, and knows Epona's Song automatically) or Zelda (is an ImpliedLoveInterest and their relationship has been described as a love story in some official sources).
* Many fansites address the ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 4|GunsOfThePatriots}}'' character Sunny as "Sunny Gurlukovich", which is her mother's surname. However, the character is only addressed by a single name. According to [[spoiler:''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'']], her surname is [[spoiler:actually Emmerich, as Otacon became her legal guardian between ''[=MGS4=]'' and ''MGR'']], although that still poses the question of [[spoiler:if Gurlukovich was her surname before adoption or if Sunny even had a last name to begin with]].

*** Also, the name given to ocelot was most likely short for "john doe", or the name given to an unidentified military male body. Also, right below this, "Jane Doe" is the same but for a female body. This makes it more unlikely that the actual names were the ones given.

** There is a consensus that Mario and Luigi were upgraded to FirstNameBasis between ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''.
