*** Or there is a [[TakeAThirdOption third way]] to view it: In the same way that some micro-organisms can only live in especially clean environments, medichlorians can only live in a being with a connection to the Force. The greater the being's Force potential, the more medichlorians can live in within it, hence using medichlorian count as a gauge of strength in the Force.

** It is notorious among the fans for having an open ending. This leads shippers to writing piles upon piles of fanfiction hooking up the main characters with each other, [[FanPreferredCouple especially Ranma with someone who isn't]] [[BaseBreaker Akane]] [[{{Tsundere}} Tendō]], despite Ranma×Akane being the series' OfficialCouple. The ShipToShipCombat that developed between various factions was bloody -- in fact, this very entry was changed to stop a FlameWar from starting.

** Interestingly enough, the James / John discord was made fun of in the film ''Young Sherlock Holmes'' and the Leg/Arm discord was made fun of in the BBC's modern reboot ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', in the first episode "A Study in Pink" where Watson limps as though he were shot in the leg, but the limp is in fact a psychosomatic reaction to the real wound in his shoulder.

The etymology of 'wank' shows that it means 'indulgence', particularly any kind of major self-indulgence. Not surprisingly, this leads to it being British slang for [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbation]], though it's mostly just their own egos that such writers are stroking. [[{{Lemon}} Mostly]]. The term was coined by ''Series/DoctorWho'' fan and ''Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse'' writer Craig Hinton, who was no stranger to it himself, and applied it to his own work.

** The exact laws and origins of the Cursed Springs of Jusenkyo -- how much water is needed, what the exact temperature is, how much of your body has to be splashed, what sort of liquids would qualify, why drinking ''doesn't'' trigger it, whether the original victim drowned to death or was merely submerged (thanks to an early translation error and the Guide's insistence that the stories are all "tragic"), whether the springs confer any aspect of the original creature's personality, and whether the curses are age-specific.
*** Another common fan wank on the Jusenkyo Curses is adding the secondary effect of actively attempting to induce the transformation rather than simply making it possible. Typically by making the victim a [[KryptoniteIsEverywhere water magnet]] and [[InvokedTrope invoking]] ContrivedCoincidence to wet the victim if they haven't changed for too long. This idea is often used either (or both) to avoid RuleOfFunny explanation of where the convenient buckets/thrown water comes from in more [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructive works]], or to explain why Ranma [[VoluntaryShapeshifter gaining partial control]] over his curse doesn't simply turn into an effective cure due to the canonical {{Aversion}} of the SecondLawOfGenderBending: even if the water trigger of his curse is removed, and replaced with a voluntary mental triggering or other far more controllable trigger, the curse still forces Ranma to spend some time in his cursed form.
*** A gag scene in the Herb saga led to one of Ranma 1/2s most enduring fan wanks. In the story, Herb mentions he hates female Ranma because she resembles a monkey he threw into the Spring of Drowned Girl - a monkey, who in turn caused him to be cursed. As a result, the idea spread that anyone who falls into the Spring of Drowned Girl ends up looking like the [[CanonFodder original girl who drowned there]]. The creation of the Spring of Drowned Akane, introduced into the manga long after this piece of fan wank was created, just made matters even worse.

** Some fans wonder if maybe Happosai deliberately drank the Nanniichuan water that was supposed to be Ranma's cure in the final manga chapters, as it's a bit hard to mistake spring water for sake on first taste and Happosai is both extremely selfish and fixated on Ranma's [[AttractiveBentGender sexy female body]].
** KiAttacks get a lot of this. Everything which isn't explained in-universe tends to be attributed to Ki manipulation. Mousse having a HyperspaceArsenal up his sleeves? He's using Ki to compress space. The Happo Fire Burst explosives? Conjured from Ki. Akane's "signature" HyperspaceMallet (which she doesn't even use that often)? Obviously a Ki construct. Kuno's [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter implausible use of his Bokken?]] Clearly, it's reinforced with his Ki!

** Luke uses the Force to choke a Gammorean in ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' ... but isn't that using the Dark Side of the Force? Not if he only used the Jedi Mind Trick to make the Gammorean ''think'' he was choking! Or maybe it's only considered truly dark if you use the Force choke with intent to ''kill'' someone, as opposed to just staggering them. Or, even simpler, that the Force Choke is not a specified "power" tied to one's alignment like Force Lightning, but rather merely [[MundaneUtility using the Force's telekinetic abilities to pinch a victim's airway closed]], and Dark Side practitioners are fond of it because it's an easy and psychologically effective way to threaten or harm someone.

This has received an attempted HandWave by River Song in "Let's Kill Hitler" where she suggests that Time Lords can control their ageing and even age backwards if they want to (possibly used by the Tenth Doctor to reverse his age between his courtship with Queen Elizabeth in "The Day of the Doctor" and his death in the Specials), but there's points where the Doctor is physically ageing, getting only drawbacks from doing so and clearly ''doesn't'' want to...

* On ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', Morgana and Morgause are established as half-sisters, though it's never definitively said whether they share a mother or a father. There's evidence for either Vivienne or Gorlois as the shared parent, but in series 3 it's [[TheReveal revealed]] that Morgana's father is not Gorlois at all, but Uther (making her half-sister to Arthur). Since Morgana and Morgause continue to refer to each other as "sister" after this, most fans assume that Vivienne is the shared parent. Added confusion comes out of the fact that Gaius initially called them "half-sisters" (long before he knew that Uther was Morgana's true father), a statement that doesn't make sense unless you assume that Morgause had a father who ''wasn't'' Gorlois (otherwise they would have been assumed to be ''full'' sisters).

On the other, most of the fandom is very strict about adhering to canon, creating a sort of vicious circle that only the toughest fanwank survive. This eventually lead to the fans bombarding the official writer with their own ideas to canonize them. [[AscendedFanon Some]] [[PanderingToTheBase made it through]], but after a while, he had to leave the online forums due to LEGO's policies. Even after the toys were canceled, the fanwankery just kept on going. Fans are trying to explain the ludicrous powers through real-life physics (despite the wirter's insistence that they don't apply here), bringing back romance after the NoHuggingNoKissing rule, and declaring fan fictions as canonical alternate universes.

When the show itself canonizes such a theory, it's a {{Retcon}} or a ReVision or one of the two varieties of ContinuityPorn. When a fan does, it's Fan Wank. Note, however, that {{Retcon}} is a value-neutral word, while fan wank definitely carries a connotation of crap. On the other hand, theories that get popular can become {{fanon}}.

*** The strongest fan explanation is based on Tolkien's statements in the book that the Fellowship's quest required secrecy: Destroying the Ring was their best hope precisely because Sauron ''wouldn't expect'', and the best shot and accomplishing this task was to send a small party in by ways that couldn't easily be observed. By contrast, a GiantFlyer heading straight into the heart of enemy territory isn't exactly stealthy. Sauron would have realized something was up the moment his Eye caught sight of one of the Eagles speeding to Mordor. Additionally, the Ring couldn't just be dropped into the volcano, but per the text had to be thrown into the Crack of Doom itself, which is located inside a long, narrow tunnel. Between the need for stealth and just the practical needs of getting the Ring ''into'' the Fire, it was impossible for the Eagles to accomplish the task even if they ''were'' willing.
