** One of the most direct examples would have to be "Keep Calm and Flutter On", whose basic premise was created by one of the fans, [[PromotedFanboy who then worked with Meghan on the script]].

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': The characters and animation style in the game look very similar to popular ''Minecraft'' animations, with the characters having a similar range of expression (but their faces move slightly differently in this game, looking more "stop-motion") and bendable limbs.

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Fellowship of the Ring'' features an elf in the Council of Elrond scene who is literally onscreen for 3 seconds, says nothing, and indeed is barely noticeable standing behind Legolas. But fans, being fans, [[MemeticBystander latched on to this character]] (played by Bret [=MacKenzie=] of ''Film/FlightOfTheConchords'' fame) and formed stories and relationships around him, bestowing upon him the name "Figwit" (an acronym for "Frodo is great... [[HeyItsThatGuy who is that?!]]"). So big was his fanbase that he was brought back for ''Return of the King'', actually given a couple of lines, and--though officially credited as "Elf Escort"--is called "Figwit" in the filmmakers' DVD commentary. Canonization was complete when [=MacKenzie's=] character appeared in ''Film/TheHobbit'', this time named on-screen as Lindir ("the singer").

* The second ''Snowpiercer'' comic, "The Explorers", presents a ''lot'' of FanfictionFuel by confirming the existence of more than one Snowpiercer - a somewhat common interpretation of ''Film/{{Snowpiercer}}'' is that the movie takes place on one such Snowpiercer. ''Terminus'', a ''third'' comic long after the eighties adaptation manages to confirm that there were as many as ''ten'' Snowpiercer trains roaming the Earth, and that yes, the one in the Film ''was'' one such train, that scene when Yona appears and recounts the ending.

Compare with IKnewIt (when the fan explanation happens to match the one the author(s) had planned all along), AscendedMeme (when this happens to memes), WordOfDante, CanonImmigrant (when elements of an officially licensed non-canon source find their way into the official canon), OfficialFanSubmittedContent, ApprovalOfGod (when a creator likes a fan work/theory but doesn't make it canonical). When it's built into the story, it's SchrodingersGun. You could argue this is the creators' decision to ThrowItIn. When it happens as a result of a mistake or error (mostly in video games) it's an AscendedGlitch, and in the case of a translational error that fan like, a GoodBadTranslation.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}'', Yvette's hobby was meant to be nothing more than doll-making, but people in the comments thought of voodoo dolls, and after a while, she started collecting trying to collect locks of hair.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'':
** During the first season, fans joked that Lelouch's maid Sayoko was secretly a [[NinjaMaid ninja]], explaining the occasional flashes of competence seen behind her quiet exterior. Between seasons the staff acknowledged the joke, and in ''R2'' it's revealed that she is in fact the heiress to the Shinozaki ninja clan.
** Somebody made a gag comic in which the Emperor delivers a speech about breasts[[note]]A parody rewrite of his funeral speech for Clovis from episode 4[[/note]], and then Creator/NorioWakamoto, the Emperor's voice actor, made a GagDub of said comic and released it to the public.

* The way {{Toys/amiibo}} work in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' is very reminiscent of the different characters in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosCrossover'', only here the difference between the characters is purely cosmetic.
