* A disturbing number of ''{{Pokemon}}'' shipping fics include ''absolutely no Pokemon'', even in passing mention, background, or setting. Note that this completely undermines the ''entire point and title of the franchise''. A similar problem is omnipresent to a certain degree in ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', ''Franchise/YuGiOh'', and ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}''.

* The ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' fanfic author [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1706782/StaraptorEmpoleon StaraptorEmpoleon]] is infamous for taking this trope to its logical extreme: it's not uncommon for her to change everything about the ''{{Pokemon}}'' characters, often up to and including their ''names'', to the point that it often seems like the only thing they have that's connected to their canon selves is their star pokemon (if that)!

* This trope is particularly popular in the WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fandom, and comes in several flavors to boot. Even in the Fandom's earliest days it was popular to plop the cast into strange settings, like Earth. Then [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Human in Equestria]] fics started appearing and were for a brief time loved by the fandom, until they became excuses for Mary Sue-esque self inserts. To Rectify this issue, many authors starting putting in various Crossover characters and keeping with the Human in Equestria theme. In a strange version of this Trope, the main cast might not play an incredibly important role if they play one at all, with our transplanted Heros only dealing with living in a world of horses. Instead the Crossover Character will bunk down with an OC or a background Pony, so an MLP fic without any major MLP characters. Today most readers don't read Human in Equestria fics unless they star a Video Game character, a War Hero, or an Astronaut as the human (because Astronauts and War Heros are Cool).

* 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]].
