* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Other victims of the Junsenkyo Springs is a pretty popular plot, as is the concept of other fiancees for Ranma (or a LoveInterest for one of the other characters).

** Fanfics involve aspiring trainers just starting out on their journeys... and written in a way that makes the canon human characters look like incompetent chumps. On the other hand, that isn't difficult to achieve, as writing characters with ''sense'' puts them miles above the canon cast, or at least [[IdiotHero Ash]].

** Fanfics involve aspiring trainers just starting out on their journeys... and written in a way that makes the canon human characters look like incompetent chumps. On the other hand, that isn't difficult to achieve, as writing characters with ''sense'' puts them miles above the canon cast, or at least [[IdiotHero Ash]]. With the introduction of trainer customization in [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Generation VI]] (thus meaning the {{Player Character}}s [[AuthorAvatar can now resemble the actual player]]), these types of stories have only become more prevalent. Bonus points if the trainer begins his/her journey with a Pokémon that's not a regional starter.



** Pokémon themselves are very easy for people to create. A few of them are creative enough, while most of them are not. A fan favourite would be made-up Eeveelutions. In one notable case, [[HilariousInHindsight fans came up with Leafeon, right down to the name, far before it was introduced in canon]]. One site somehow managed to come up with not only the name Team Plasma, but nearly the same GOAL they had... in 2008. [[http://pokemonanrui.proboards.com/index.cgi Site here.]]

** Generation VII introduced the concept of regional species variations with different appearances and types, which opened the floodgates for an effectively limitless amount of fan creations. Take an existing Pokémon, add a type or change its typing entirely, alter the design to match, and presto!

* A widely underused example in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' comes from the moderately obscure ''EX'' titles, [[AlternateContinuity which branch off from]] ''[[AlternateContinuity '97]]'' [[AlternateContinuity in place of the NESTS Chronicles that began in]] ''[[AlternateContinuity '99]]''. Over the course of the two games, players are introduced to the members of the Ten Sacred Treasures (based on the debatably historical artifacts of the same name reportedly housed in Isonokami Shrine). ''EX'' marks the debut of Moe Habana, with the sequel bringing in Reiji Oogami, Jun Kagami, Miu Kurosaki, and Sinobu Amou, but only Moe, Reiji, and Sinobu have their treasures revealed. Strangely, the members of the Three Sacred Treasures, Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, and Chizuru Kagura, are counted among the Ten's ranks despite possessing [[PublicDomainArtifact the Imperial Regalia of Japan/Treasures of Amaterasu]], which are theorized by some to be the inspiration for the Ten Sacred Treasures due to overall similarities between the two legends. Presumably, if the ''EX'' story wasn't LeftHanging, the remaining two members would have made an appearance, and the oddity mentioned above means there actually should be ''five'' unseen characters.

* VideoGame/ToukenRanbu fans often do come up with their own fan designs for Sword Boys of swords that haven't been introduced yet, and there are even people who have made sword boy designs for famous European swords [[http://trouble-san.deviantart.com/art/Seiken-Ranbu-Excalibur-559061620 such as]] [[Myth/KingArthur Excalibur]] or fictional swords such as [[Anime/RurouniKenshin Kenshin Himura]]'s unnamed Sakabatou.

* It's easy to find a ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' fanfic starring a new trainer who's just starting out on their Pokemon journey, especially now that trainer customization has been introduced and you can make your trainer look like you. Bonus points if the trainer begins his/her journey with a Pokemon that's not a regiona starter.

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' writers are often ''required'' by the plot to create OCs to be akumatized. Unusually, this functions to keep the story more focused on Ladybug and Chat Noir, as akumatizing any existing characters would require more narrative focus than just having a random person show up for a plot-mandated fight.
** And then there's the Miraculous holders. Fanartists tends to either invent brand new miraculouses, based on varied animals, and their holders; or to represent the people who could have the non used jewels seen the credits: the fox, the peacock, the bee and the turtle. [[spoiler: Or at least non used in season one. Since then, it been revealed that the turtle, the fox, the bee and the peacock holders are respectively Master Fu, Alya, Chloe and a still unnamed woman.]]

* For ''Toys/HeroFactory'', the successor line to ''Bionicle'', Toys/{{LEGO}} created the Hero Recon Team. In-universe, the Recon Team is an intelligence force keeping tabs on the locations of villains. Out-of-universe, it's a program that lets fans create their own in-canon original characters and [[MerchandiseDriven buy toy versions of them]].

** In the franchise's early days, less than half of the original 30 or so [[SuperSoldier Spartan-IIs]] were named. This made creating a new Spartan character as easy as picking a first name and a three-digit number, as long as you didn't expect people to accept your Spartan surviving [[EverybodysDeadDave the Fall of Reach]] -- virtually every survivor of that battle is canonically accounted for. Eventually, most of the Spartan-[=IIs=] were given names, which you'd think would mean the end of this trope. However, this has been balanced out by the reveal that some of the 45 or so Spartan-II trainees who had allegedly "washed out" actually later became Spartan-[=IIs=] themselves; when combined with media also revealing that not every Spartan-[=II=] was even ''at'' Reach when it fell, this still leaves plenty of room for Spartan-II [=OCs=].

** Creating new Stand users is simple: [[MusicalThemeNamingpick two musicians, bands, songs or albums, then name the user after one and name the Stand after the other]]. There was originally a heavy bias for music from the '80s or earlier, but as time went on '90s references began trickling in, and [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureJoJolion Part 8]] even has Stands named [[Music/{{Rihanna}} California King Bed]] and [[Music/LadyGaga Born This Way]].
