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?

** This doesn't just apply to text and manga-based fanfiction, either. There is at least one game where Reimu is a spy in a {{Cyber Punk}}-themed outside world, without magic, and acts similar to Solid Snake and other characters from ''VideoGame/MetalGear''.

** There's a fic called ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4882160/1/Swan_Princess Swan Princess]]''. It's a word-for-word transcript of the film ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess'' with the names changed. Harry is in the place of Prince Derek and Draco [[SlashFic is in the place of Princess Odette]], meaning the story takes place in a world where [[ArrangedMarriage marriages are arranged]] for same-sex children with the apparent assumption both will be gay when they grow up. (No matter that half the point of an arranged marriage is to produce children, [[MisterSeahorse not that the obvious obstacle there is necessarily an issue in fanfic.]]) Lucius Malfoy and Lily Potter are completely out of character, acting chummy with their lines stolen from King William and Queen Uberta. Despite still being male, Draco is referred to as a "princess" ("Then, happily a son was born... a princess. And he was given the name Draco." [sic])
