Some works will have plots based on April Fool's Day, much like the ChristmasEpisode. Plots will revolve around characters pranking each other. It might be just a bunch of harmless fun. Very often, however, what was intended as a harmless prank might spiral out of control and create real problems.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Series/ShiningTimeStation'' episode, "The Joke's on Schemer", on March 31st, the kids dread Schemer's April Fool's Day pranks, so they decide to prank him by making him think it's April 1st. At first, they find it funny when Schemer's pranks confuse bystanders, but then he starts mistaking serious things for pranks, like JB King trying to get him to renew the lease on his arcade.

* ''KeroroGunsou'' has a chapter where the Platoon fools Fuyuki and Natsumi into thinking they have gotten serious about their invasion of Earth - they even hijack some news broadcasts and internet sites to amplify the effect of their supposed attacks on the population. It even includes a number of {{Shout Out}}s to OrsonWelles' radio adaptation of ''Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds''.

* A classic {{Superman}} story from the Silver Age, "The Night of March 31st," ends with Superman going to bed on March 31 only to wake up to utter chaos. Villains who know his secret identity, Lana Lang trying to kill him, Superman flying around the city in Clark's glasses, and so forth. The story asked the readers if they could "guess the solution of the astonishing story that began on the night of March 31st!" (The answer, of course, is not related to what day it is when Superman goes to bed, but what day it is when he wakes up.)
