* Each installment of the Fanfic/ElementalChessTrilogy has a theme around which each chapter is titled. ''Flowers of Antimony'' uses alchemical terms; ''Brilliancy'' uses chess terms; ''The Game of Three Generals'' uses terms from shogi (Japanese chess); the prequel ''Triumvirate'' uses military terms; and the DistantFinale ''Chronology'' uses time travel terms.
* The ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' story ''[[Fanfic/TilTheSunGrowsCold Til the Sun Grows Cold and the Stars Grow Old]]'' uses a phrase from Shakespeare for the title of each chapter.
* The ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' fic ''FanFic/ShadowAndRose'' uses the name of an object (weapon, artifact, etc.) from the game for each chapter title.
* The [[FanFic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] stories are all partial spoofs of parts of the DisneyAnimatedCanon, so the chapter titles of each story are a quote (or a twisted version thereof, in the first story) from the animated film which helps to form the plot. The lone exception is the {{interquel}}, which takes its title and subheadings from an Music/OwlCity song.
