** Coil's Endbringer shelter front company is never named in canon, but after ''Fanfic/{{Cenotaph}}'' gave it the [[AdaptationNameChange Adaptation Naming]] of Fortress Construction, the moniker stuck.



** In the game proper, few of the ship girls demonstrate grudges or hangups over the Pacific War. Many fanfic writers give them such issues anyway, perhaps out of RuleOfDrama.

** Canonically, Uber & L33t aren't shown in a good light, either morally or power-wise. But the idea of video game-themed underdog supervillains is easy to empathise with, leading to various fics dealing them a better hand than they got in canon.

** The game also provides no details about the Abyssal command structure, but some fanfic writers give them their own admirals.

* Fans of ''{{Film/Heathers}} (the movie) and ''{{Theatre/Heathers}}'' (the musical) tend to favor the "canon mixing" variety, basing their fics on whichever version they like better, but borrowing elements from the other as well. A nearly-surefire way to tell which one the author prefers? If Veronica's stated to be (or to have been) a junior during the events of the film in the fic, they're probably going off the movie for the most part. If she is (or was) a senior, it's probably the musical.

** Fans also usually ignore JK Rowling's statement that McGonagall is no longer headmistress by the time Harry's children attend Hogwarts. After all, Dumbledore was far older than her and he had no intention of retiring!

* The world that ''Fanfic/JusticeSocietyOfJapan'' takes place in has a bit of the Post-Crisis DCU (in that superheroes have been around for decades, and the Justice Society of America exists) and a bit of the New 52's DCU (Justice League Dark exists, Calendar Man is a news anchor, {{Superman}} and WonderWoman are in a relationship). There's a heck of a lot of canon tweaking in regards to the other series used in the fic, most notably ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' and ''Anime/CodeGeass''.

* ''TenchiMuyo'': The author's favorite characters or plot points from the many alternate ''Tenchi'' continuities get brought into the OVA universe. (This most frequently means [[EnsembleDarkhorse Kiyone Makibi]] and no, Noike doesn't count.)

* The WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels fanfiction Fanfic/EzraLost has a couple of these, but nothing too major. For example, the appearances of a few named OCs [[spoiler:who quickly die anyway]], and the alteration of how the crew meets [[spoiler:Darth Vader.]]

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': In Marauders era fanfics, it isn't uncommon for writers to ignore a character's canon ages in order to put the closer to the ages of Severus, Lily, or the Marauders or vice versa. The most popular targets of this is Bellatrix (and her sisters to a lesser extent), and Alice Longbottom (usually to make her one of Lily's friends).
