* The Virtual Nightmare Arc in the original ''Anime/YuGiOh'' was supposed to be a FillerArc, but it introduced a unique [[HouseRules House Rule]] to the game called the Deck Master system. Despite Kaiba's insistence canon-wise that [[LetUsNeverSpeakOFThisAgain they forget it ever happened]], FanFic writers never seem to get tired of using this house rule and putting unique spins on it. (In fact, the ''VideoGame/YuGiOhTheDuelistsOfTheRoses'' may have been a "legit" example of expanding the Deck Master system with the similarly functioning Deck Leaders.)

** WordofGod revealed the reason for Elsa's powers was going to be included in the film (being born during a millennium of a certain alignment of Saturn) but was cut for time and plot relevance. While the canonicity of this proto-canon can be considered debatable (could be related to the winter solstice birth thing or may even be Retconned in the sequel), this is even more Fanfic Fuel, such as the possibility of others with magic powers being born at certain year intervals and/or alignments, or even who the cryokinetic "previous-1,000th year Saturn alignment" before Elsa was perhaps the original Snow Queen from the original fairy tale?

* Many ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' fanfics focus on what Isaac's party was up to during the first two thirds of ''The Lost Age'', before they joined forces with Felix's group.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has a two-year gap between the first and second games in the series for fanfic writers to speculate on. Most of the party members also have at least a few gaps to fill in...not to mention the oft-mentioned but barely-seen Kharlan War era, four thousand years ago, which has spawned its own subgenre within the fandom.
* Similarly, there's plenty in the post-timeskip epilogue to ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', except that it's more like essay fuel since people are just trying to explain [[GainaxEnding what the hell actually happened.]]

** And for that matter, what about the events that connect the [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic original Mega Man]] to [[VideoGame/MegaManX X]], and X to Zero?
* Before Radical Dreamers' and Chrono Cross' release, ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' has many fanfics centering about Magus' search for Schala because Schala's fate is left ambiguous in the end.
* As a sequel to Chrono Trigger, ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' has a {{Wild Mass Guess|ing}} about [[spoiler:the enigmatic masked magician Guile being Magus searching for Schala (the bonus ending of ''Chrono Trigger DS'' implies Guile being an amnesiac Magus, albeit one from a timeline different from that of the Magus seen in the main storyline)]]. This leads to many (though still not very common) novelizations of ''Chrono Cross'' with the said {{Wild Mass Guess|ing}}.

''Zero''? For the latter, there has yet to be a game covering the Elf Wars, which is largely mentioned in passing and only briefly showcased in [[AudioAdaptation drama CDs]].

* There's a three-year gap in the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' timeline, between the end of ''Code Veronica'' and the "Umbrella's End" stage in ''Umbrella Chronicles'', that has never been explored to any serious extent. We've been told here and there that the cast was running around the world fighting viruses, arresting evil scientists, and having adventures, but aside from Leon's adventure in South America in ''Darkside Chronicles'', it's never really been discussed.

All of those Spartans that didn't get a story on the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' in either games and or the ExpandedUniverse. Heck, even the ones who are featured in canon are this, since we still only get a tiny glimpse of their adventures.
** The post-war galaxy is this too, since there are hundreds of different factions vying for power

* ''{{Daria}}'''s BizarroEpisode, "Depth Takes a Holiday," is often relegated to FanonDiscontinuity, but other times fans wonder: if Lawndale actually has an interdimensional portal, couldn't that set up all sorts of sci-fi/fantasy fics, not to mention crossovers?

** The SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', is filled to the brim with potential fanfic hooks. Not only is the show set 8 decades after ''[[AvatarTheLastAirbender Avatar]]'', but there are also several smaller [[TimeSkip time skips]] within the show itself, including a whopping 3-year gap between Books 3 and 4. Also, ''Korra'''s comparatively faster pace means that a lot of background details that aren't directly relevant to the plot are left open-ended, including [[WorkingWithTheEx the specifics of past relationships]], the exact details of villains' [[MysteriousPast rises to power]], and [[SequelNonentity even the fates of some of the main characters of The Last Airbender]]. Considering the creators are [[TeasingCreator well aware]] of how their show's fandom operates, this is almost undoubtedly intentional.

** The [[BaseBreaker questionable actions]] of Shining Armor, The Mane Six, and Celestia that were taken during first part of the second season finale had garnered a bit of fuel, having writers insert bitterness into Twilight [[spoiler:when she alienated everyone she ever loved, even when she was right about her suspicions surrounding the fake Cadance]] and write out stories [[AccusationFic calling out the ponies involved]].

** The episode ''Helpless'' dealt with Buffy losing her slayer powers due to a ritual. What if she never got her powers back? Would she still fight monsters or use this chance to live a normal life?

* ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'': During the 90's, [=Tom DeFalco=]'s run introduced Jonathan Richards, known as Hyperstorm, the son of Franklin Richards and Rachel Summers from an alternate version of ''ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast''. Hyperstorm was sent to a dimensional void with Galactus, who returned. Hyperstorm was never seen again. In six chapters of five thousand words or more, describe Jonathan Richards growing up in his own timeline before becoming a villain, how he returns from the dimensional void, what he plans to do in modern day, how he defeats the X-men and the Fantastic Four at the same time, and how he fights in ridiculous energy battles versus Rachel Summers, Hope Summers, and maybe Nate Grey, or Vulcan, he hasn't done a whole lot lately. Just like KRPBLRRR BLRPSHKRR like explosions everywhere.
