* 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.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, all the Phase stories have titles "Ayla and the...". Probably because Phase was/is a pompous rich kid with years of prep schooling, the novels have meaningful chapter titles as well. The first novel has five chapters named for the books of the Old Testament. "Ayla and the Tests" has eight chapters named for some of the labors of Hercules. Pompous and too much prep school.
** "Ayla and the Birthday Brawl" had chapter titles taken from Spenser's "The Faerie Queene".
