** 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 ''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])

* While ''Fanfic/TheReturn'' is very well written and interesting, it has almost nothing whatsoever to do with its ostensible sources, RanmaOneHalf and ''Anime/SailorMoon.'' The Ranma elements suffer from changed setting and skillset, and all the characters' personalities being utterly destroyed and transformed into something [[BlueAndOrangeMorality other]] ''in-story'', while the ''Sailor Moon'' characters come out with personalities and abilities more or less intact, but story tone so dark as to make it almost unrecognizable.

** ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' also has several, generally with ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' and ''TheClevelandShow'' mixed in too. One notorious one removed the character's familial ties, [[AdaptedOut got rid of Brian and Stewie]], and made the characters ''high school students''.

* ''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).

* 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 ''{{Bakugan}}''.

* A vast, '''''vast''''' majority of ''GundamWing'' fanfiction consists of taking the Gundam Pilots and plopping them into a completely different setting just to facilitate them [[YaoiGuys getting hot and heavy with each other]]. The number of fics actually dealing with the plot and events of the series, let alone set in the After Colony universe, is a definite minority. DieForOurShip and {{Wimpification}} take care of most of the rest of the canon.

* The ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fanfic ''FanFic/KitsuneNoKenFistOfTheFox'' has none of the mystical jutsu, summoning magic, tailed beasts, and other ninja elements of the canon series, instead putting the characters in a (mostly) HighSchoolAU where the only elements that are truly outlandish are the rampage by the Nine Terrors in the backstory, the secret-agent aspects that appear midway through the story, and the fighting against a criminal syndicate by the teenage protagonists, not to mention [[spoiler:the artificial intelligence the Terrors were scientifically imbued with]].
