* [=Dennis L. McKiernan=]'s {{Mithgar}} novels (''The Iron Tower'', ''The Silver Call'', ''Hel's Crucible'') started off as ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' fanfic. Doomsday wanted to publish. Tolkien Estate said "no". Changing the names and filing the numbers off for the "Silver Call" duology required inventing a new backstory of a great war against evil to replace ''The Lord Of The Rings'', and thus the Iron Tower trilogy came about. The rest of the series grew more divergent from there, but the Moria-analogue in those first books is unmistakable.

* Hours before the ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' modification WAD "Evilution" was set to be released, the creators, Team TNT, were emailed by JohnRomero offering a publishing deal. It ended up as half of ''Final Doom''. This decision, however, resulted in a BrokenBase: many players were thrilled to see a fan production become canon, while others accused Team TNT for "selling out" their fans.

* ''[[Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures DMFA]]'' was originally set in the ''{{Furcadia}}'' online chat/roleplaying client. So that would technically make it a fanfic. Early strips have a lot of reference to Roleplaying-terms, internet fads, ect.

* Similarly, ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII'' has the Greed mode from the Titan Pack, (or [[UpdatedRerelease UT3 Black]], depending where you obtained the game) which started as a mod for ''Unreal Tournament 2004''. His creator, Mystikal, is now working for EpicGames.

* YoungAdult author Creator/CassandraClare started off as a [[Fanfic/TheDracoTrilogy fanfic author]] and later used lines from her own fanfics in her original work. On an unrelated note, some readers have noted that some of the phrasing in her works shows close similarity to past works by Creator/PamelaDean.
