Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' fangame ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyConflictOfInterest'' takes place in the ''Apollo Justice'' era, but began development before ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]'' was released, resulting in many breaks from canon, such as [[spoiler: Pearl Fey]]'s character arc going in a radically different direction. The author eventually went with a BroadStrokes approach: taking some elements from ''Dual Destinies'' like Phoenix's new outfit and throwing in a ShoutOut here and there, but still treating itself as an AlternateUniverse. (Athena doesn't exist, for example)

* Memetic Mashing: The writer incorporates the MemeticMutation of a character into the work under the challenge of making it mesh believably with the established characterization. Difficult and prone to become very in-jokey if done badly, excellent {{Fandom Nod}}s when done right.

* Personality tweak: The toning down/[[{{Flanderization}} up]] of a character's personality within "acceptable" bounds, said bounds usually based on... [[ShapedLikeItself how people write the character in fanfics frequently]]. Popular with low-emotive characters who are otherwise difficult to write for or who have a popular line (count the usages of BigDamnHeroes in ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' and then in Firefly Fics, for example).

* [[{{Jossed}} Retroactive Discontinuity]]: A special subset of this where an aspect of a fic that started out canon becomes a break from canon by events of future seasons/books/what have you. Either someone dies, or someone new is introduced, or something new is revealed, what have you, but something happens which changes the canon in ways not reflected in the fanfic.

* Very common in ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', and also expected, since the series ''runs'' on AlternateCharacterInterpretation and MemeticMutation

One of the most common things done is taking away ResurrectiveImmortality from [[OurFairiesAreDifferent fairy]] characters in order to make the situation [[RuleOfDrama suspenseful when they're in danger]], to the point that it's usually a minor plot point when it ''isn't'' the case.

** It is not uncommon for fanfic writers to combine the ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' manga and the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]] into the same universe. Considering the extreme AlternativeCharacterInterpretation some characters have received between the two continuities, this can become quite the MindScrew. Similarly, stories in the [[VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} video game]] {{verse}} will often have the characters be indistinguishable from their manga counterparts, to the point where the only evidence that these are ''not'' manga fics consists of very subtle clues.

* In fanfics that deal with the [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb Phinabella]] pairing, it is very common for Phineas and Isabella to get together sooner than in canon, with some going as far as to have them get together during the 104 day summer vacation. These fics also tend to ignore Ferb's crush on Vanessa.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' has a version of canon mixing. In the original short that served as the show's pilot, Chat Noir was a character named Félix who was kind of a JerkAss; by the time the show aired, he was scrapped and replaced with Adrien, who looks largely similar but is far more of a NiceGuy. In fanfic, Félix is often presented as Adrien's AloofBigBrother and may have been Chat Noir before him. Some also throw in Marinette's slightly-different design from the short as a sister named Bridgette.

** Wildbow has never officially confirmed that [[spoiler:Eidolon is responsible for the Endbringers]]. Due to the strong circumstantial evidence for it, many fanfic authors have ran with this assumption nevertheless.
