Ultimately, official {{Canon}}icity is much smaller than the people who throw the term around like to think it is. {{Canon}}icity is limited to that which has actually been described in the source material. Especially in groups of writers, it boils down to what the writers specifically need to worry about for the purposes of the ongoing plot.

Compare BroadStrokes, where the events of a story are referenced in passing without taking everything said and done as having "officially" happened. If the fanon was repeatedly hinted at by writers until it became fanon, but never actually confirmed in canon, it's WriterInducedFanon. See also FandomSpecificPlot. Not to be confused with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frantz_Fanon this]] Fanon or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papal_Fanon the Pope's robe.]] Fanon is frequently based off FanficFuel.

** Many fanartists draw Buzz as a blond. In canon it's never even shown what the purple thing on his head is. It could be removable or it could be [[HumanAliens a part of his head]].

** It's common for fans to think Yang's a giant PungeonMaster to make the character MetaCasting for her voice actress [[{{Characters/RoosterTeethOthers}} Barbara Dunkelman]], when she's really only made one pun in two seasons. She also tends to be a lot more pottymouthed and sexually aggressive than she is in canon.
** Blake will have her cat-like attributes exaggerated in fanworks, like having Yang play with her using cat toys. Even her canon cat-like moments are exaggerated further within the fandom, and ''WebOriginal/RWBYChibi'' got in on the fun.

** Some fics give Ruby what basically amounts to ''Nora's'' personality, which isn't really what she's like in canon.

** Before she was revealed to be alive in the sequel, it was common fan interpretation to have Hiccup's mother be dead. Mainly due to complications in child birth or more commonly a dragon attack. The latter being the source of Stoick's hatred of dragons. While there were a couple hints in the movie and in the show to suggest her passing, Stoick's hatred for dragons stemmed from the dragons attacking Berk. Though his wife being taken by a dragon probably didn't help.

** Epsilon is metastable/rampant. Metastability in the Halo universe is, to borrow a phrase from the forums, a big f***ing deal, involving some very obvious and extreme stages. Epsilon hasn't really exhibited any of these (except maybe anger) and it's likely he's not even capable of it (being a fragment, not a full AI), yet it's such a common fan theory that it's often stated as fact, even on ThisVeryWiki.

** A large number of fan-works have a SiblingTriangle between Mufasa, Sarabi, and Scar occuring when they were younger. Often times Scar is still bitter over it. If not Sarabi, then Sarafina is a common love interest for Scar. Fans on the pair differ whether Scar is Nala's father or not.

** When it comes to [[AnthropomorphicPersonification humanized versions]] of the characters, artists usually take two different routes: They either base them off the Broadway musical designs or they make them Shakespearean and European looking.

** Although hinted, it was never confirmed that Team CFVY's Fox is blind. It's though, a common belief in the fandom.

** In the series, one of the first things we learn about Ruby is that she likes cookies. It's now a struggle to find a fanfic where Ruby's cookie-love isn't more like a drug addiction.(WordOfGod says her favorite food is actually strawberries.)
