* The ''Series/Daredevil2015'' two-part fanfic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/series/280353 Marci Stahl is Better Than You]]'' does something very few works involving blind people do, and acknowledges that Braille has a number of weird contractions that don't translate well into written English; not just used to combine two words, but also to condense common words into a few Braille dots (and primarily prepositions). It is the discovery of such contractions in the dossier on Fisk that leads Marci to suspect Matt is the Devil of Hell's Kitchen.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290311/6/The-Black-Emperor The Black Emperor]]'' contains a scene of [[Anime/CodeGeass Kallen's mother]] recalling how she fell into drug addiction which takes cues from the story of an actual drug addict.

* ''Fanfic/{{Vigil}}'' goes to some lengths explaining how plasma weaponry from ''Videogame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' operates and how it interacts with ''Franchise/MassEffect'''s kinetic barriers, including the important point that plasma, being a state of matter, has mass and is thus affected by gravity. Furthermore, because thermal energy can only be transmitted through a vacuum by radiation instead of more efficient methods like convection or conduction, plasma that doesn't hit something in space is largely ineffective, especially when ships have heat-resistant hulls. As a result, kinetic barriers prove highly effective against plasma. This caused quite a few angry reviews from readers who insisted that plasma was just another form of energy and should ignore kinetic barriers altogether.

Ironically, ''Videogame/MassEffectAndromeda'' would [[WordOfGod eventually and firmly decide the question]]: kinetic barriers ''do'' block plasma and particle beams.
* By the same author, ''Fanfic/{{Forward}}'' featured realistic space movement, including how dangerous it is to have unsecured materials when there's no gravity. Later on, small-unit infantry tactics are lovingly described as Jayne evades a gang of professional, military-trained gunmen trying to hunt him down.

* Breech Loader, author of fanfiction ''PrisonIslandBreak,'' has put considerable research into such things as medical procedures, prison etiquette, blood types, speech impediments, and the kinds of injuries that would ''really'' be caused by the weapons used in the story.

** The depiction of slavery in the Demon Empire averts both HappinessInSlavery and FateWorseThanDeath. Their treatment and conditions [[RealityEnsues vary depending on their masters and where they are working]].
** Sonya's plasma-focused katana is correctly depicted as a backup weapon. In mediaeval Japan, the samurai preferred bows and spears over their swords, which they used if anything got too close. She also prefers using guns - [[RealityIsUnrealistic the samurai admired firearms]] and used them extensively after they were introduced to Japan.
** Maledict's character is a personification of [[Creator/NiccoloMachiavelli Machiavelli's]] eponymous ''Prince'' - wanting to be both feared and loved - rather than the PopculturalOsmosis version. It helps that the author has actually read ''The Prince'' in real life.
** One of Jesus' military assistants is Lucifer. This seems rather unusual considering Maledict's presence, unless you know that Lucifer and Satan are actually different biblical beings entirely.

* As part of its DeconstructorFleet, quite a lot of the setting of ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' was based on (and inspired by) obscure Bible stories and passages, and so is much of the symbolism. A lot of the Emirate of Mecca was based on the actual ''Hadiths'' of Muhammed as well. Several lines of dialogue from Angel characters are in accurate Hebrew and Latin too.

* ''Fanfic/BringerOfDeath'' is first a ''DragonballZ'' fic, and second an attempt to [[DoingInTheWizard plausibly explain the physics of DBZ.]] The result is an epic story that appeals to fans [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief unwilling to suspend their disbelief]] in poorly-explained spaceship mechanics, etc.

Added DiffLines:

**From Chapter 18, this is played with. According to the note, she tried to do as much research as she could on the subject of adoption and child custody in Japan, however, she didn't turn up much anything, so she had to "wing it" for the plotline but, if she obtains more info, she'd update her note with her sources. In Satsuki's case, this is a bit more overt, as "takatsubo" is an actual condition, generally caused by a sudden shock of emotional stress.
