* WebAnimation commonly does this as a joke and/or a sort of animation test; both on Website/YouTube and Website/{{Newgrounds}}, taking the audio from a scene in a movie or TV show and animating it with characters from a video game is rather popular. For one example: "Robot Hell" from the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Hell is Other Robots", [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLPkKZS6q9k This]] Website/YouTube video redoes the song from the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Hell is Other Robots" using redone on YouTube using]] the ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' mercs!

* The [[RougeAnglesOfSatin Grammatically-broken]] (and [[MissingEpisode lost]]) ''Warhammer 40000 Trouble'', when the author suddenly turns ''Manga/ToLoveRu'''s UnluckyEverydude ChickMagnet into a scheming MagnificentBastard that also ProperlyParanoid, [[JustForFun/XMeetsY then adding]] ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' [[{{Anvilicious}} just to cement]] [[SenselessSacrifice his point]]. The catch? Considering [[ShotgunWedding HOW The Harem story]] [[MagneticGirlfriend started]]...{{Deconstruction}} ensues. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Oh]], and his BromanticFoil is [[GenreSavvy a Hardcore fan of W40K]], GenreShift to a whole level...
* One example is the ''[[http://www.lop.shoesforindustry.net/ Lust Over Pendle]]'' series of ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fanfiction by A.J. Hall, a series of suspense/mystery novels using [[DracoInLeatherPants Draco]] and Neville as a [[SlashFic couple]] solving mysteries, effectively turning them into the HardyBoys. Magic is hardly mentioned at all, everyone constantly interacts with {{Muggles}} and one climax features a "magical" nuclear device that doesn't seem very magical at all. In other words, if you changed the name and dropped what little premise of magic actually included in the story, you'd have a pretty good original novel. With the premise sticking halfway to it, readers keep on forgetting that this is supposed to be a Franchise/HarryPotter fanfiction even ''with'' the names used.
** A lot of ''Harry Potter'' fanfiction goes even further, keeping the characters' names, [[OutOfCharacter changing their personalities]] and setting it in the Muggle world. Either that or a generic fantasy/medieval world with no mention of Hogwarts or wizards ([[http://pottersues.livejournal.com/572600.html Hermione is a water nymph who loves Prince Draco!]]).

* Pretty much any fic with ''FireEmblem'''s Marth turns him into a PossessionSue due to the Fangirl author not playing Shadow Dragon or even doing any research. Roy and Ike suffer from this as well, but it's not as bad.

** And then there's ''MyImmortal'', which actually ''does'' replace the wizarding subjects with Muggle subjects as well as change most of the characters' names. And as for the characters who get to keep their canon names, they're still [[RougeAnglesOfSatin almost never spelled correctly]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has plenty of TransplantedCharacterFic. Examples include ''Our Stay With Sideshow'' (which made the Simpsons kids WW2 evacuees), ''Maid in Springfield'' (which aged some of the kid characters up and made them the staff of a New York hotel) and ''Dystopia'' (which was set in a BadFuture).

This is an AlternateUniverseFic in which the setting and premise of the original are changed completely, and so only the characters are the same. Sometimes it can lead to an effect like an original fic with the characters from another story pasted in. In fact, sometimes this may be done deliberately: a fanfic for a popular series (even if it has nothing to do with the canon) tends to get a lot more views than an original story, so why not just change the character's names to increase the readership a tenfold?
