Crack Fic

Anonymous Poster #1: Woody is stuck inside Sunnyside with the gang, and has just had his arm torn off by Lotso. Luckily, a rifle through the confiscated items drawer and a bit of duct tape later, Woody has a new arm — a Swiss Army knife duct-taped to his shoulder, Ash Williams style. Now what shall he do with his new arm? Bonus points if you can get Ken to call Woody's new arm "groovy".
Anonymous Poster #2: I love you.

Fan Fic on crack. The easiest type of fanfic to write, and one of the hardest to write well. Crack Fic is not merely humorous. In fact in many cases it doesn't have to be humorous. While it is similar to Alternate Universe Fic, in that they both change some fundamental aspect of the source material, the "something's different about this" idea is taken to the extreme. In its broadest sense, Crack Fic is any story whose premise and events would be completely implausible in Canon. These frequently include bizarre settings and explorations of improbable relationships between characters — not merely unlikely in canon, as in Foe Yay, but totally irrational and turned up a notch beyond that, as in Crack Pairing.

Crack Fic is often considered the result of a challenge, either from someone outside the author or from the author him/herself: "This idea is completely unworkable, but I bet I can make it work." The name stems from the notion that the author must have been ingesting some illegal substance just to think up the idea, let alone write it.

Our very own Pitch Generator is basically one giant Crack Fic crossover... generator.

Compare Crack Pairing, Bizarro Fiction.

"Official" Examples:

    Advertising 
  • Can your beer do this? Miller Lite did a whole campaign of these weird commercials in 2008, combining things like Sumo wresting and high diving and ice hockey with a beauty pageant.

    Anime & Manga 

    Comic Books 

    Film (Animated) 
  • The Pirates! Band of Misfits is pretty much a Crack Fic for real world history. Among other things we have Queen Victoria as an Ax-Crazy psychopath, all the world's leaders gathering together on a gigantic cruise ship to eat rare animals, Charles Darwin getting messed up with the eponymous group of pirates... yeah...

    Film (Live-Action) 
  • Funny or Die's When Harry Met Sally II. It starts off staunchly Original Flavor with the mildly cracky premise of Harry in an old folks' home after Sally's death, falling in love for the second time with Helen Mirren's character. Then the vampires show up.
  • Bubba Ho-Tep features an elderly Elvis and JFK (whose brain has been transplanted into a black man's body, though he thinks he's just been dyed that color) fighting a cowboy mummy that sucks out people's souls through their anus. note 
  • Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter is a musical movie in which Jesus, in the modern day, kills vampires... and sings.
  • The brucesploitation "classic" The Dragon Lives Again, featuring Popeye, Kwai Chang Caine, The One-Armed Swordsman, 007, The Man With No Name, The Godfather, Laurel and Hardy, The Exorcist, Dracula, and Emmanuelle with most of them trying to conquer Hell/The Underworld.
  • Seltzer and Friedberg's movies, especially Disaster Movie.
  • The Star Wars Holiday Special.
  • There exists an obscure film called Geek Maggot Bingo. Of the entire film, the Word Salad Title is probably the least bizarre; there are cowboys, mad scientists, vampires, hunchbacks, transvestites, phones made of cardboard, cats covered with marker scribblings, the cheapest props and special effects you'll ever see (that are somehow strangely creative), at least a dozen samples of stolen music, and that barely scratches the surface of how screwed up this film is. Watch The Cinema Snob's review for a better idea.

    Literature 

    Live-Action Television 
  • The Glee episode "Comeback". To elaborate, it features Sue trying to commit suicide via gummy vitamins (on a show that would go on to treat sucide VERY seriously in a later arc), Mercedes and Rachel (two characters that are very different and barely interact with each other) singing a duet, a Justin Bieber tribute band, and a performance of a My Chemical Romance song while dressed as lumberjacks.
  • "Can't Smeg Won't Smeg" was the first feature of Red Dwarf Night, the Red Dwarf Tenth Anniversary Celebration. It is Red Dwarf as a cooking show, based on a real English cooking show. One full of the unintentional hilarity that comes of asking these characters to cook.

    Music 

    Tabletop Games 
  • Twilight Sparkle's Secret Shipfic Folder has cards whose Flavor Text is almost universally from Twilight's supposed folder of fics. Some of the quotes are a little... odd.
    Spike stood at the door, slack-jawed for a few moments. The... thing... at the door gurgled pleasantly and tilted its head expectantly. He turned. "Um, Twilight? I'm hoping the door is for you..." —What About Crackle?

    Video Games 

    Webcomics 
  • Jack's third episode of Totally Non Canon Theater, Frigid McThunderbones. There are no words to describe it except "cracky". Well, and probably also "offensive" (at at least one point to any given reader).
  • In The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob!, Molly likes to write fanfics along the lines of The Brothers Karamazov meets Harold and the Purple Crayon. Harold uses his purple crayon to draw a door on Dmitri's Siberian prison cell wall. Then they and Grushenka go trekking across the Siberian wilderness. And the Moon goes with them.
  • In-universe: Late into Homestuck, the Big Bad creates his own retelling/version of the story titled Homosuck, a Stylistic Suck comic where everyone looks like Problem Sleuth (the previous entry in MS Paint Adventures), which first starts off parodying some complaints about the first act before killing off John, then moving on to a story of Dave having all of the female humans in love with him. At one point, Dave even fights off enemies (which are taken directly from a book) using a sword made out of images that his species deems as "pornography."

  • There's a certain word game where one person starts a story with the first sentence, and each person in the group adds on another sentence. With certain groups of people competing to make the story even weirder than it was before, this can get pretty surreal. Also goes for certain improv games. The more formalized version is called "Consequences," and asks a different person to fill in one of the following, in order, then fold the paper so his entry is unreadable and pass to the next person. The items are 1. Man's Name 2. Woman's Name 3. Place 4. Reason they were there 5. What he said 6. How she replied 7. What happened. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Twilight Sparkle's Secret Shipfic Folder has numerous examples referenced in the flavor text. But really, it's a game about a unicorn secretly shipping everyone in her life, so it's par for the course.

Fan Work Examples:

    Specific Authors 

    Inter-Media Crossovers 

    Anime & Manga 
  • The Dys FU Nctional Pirates, which is a series of One Piece crack one-shots.
  • For fans of Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, we have The Tale of the Samba Pineapple, specially written for April Fools' Day.
  • Shinji And Warhammer 40 K. Shinji Ikari (Butt Monkey) gets a Warhammer 40,000 set at age 6 or so, and it makes him akin to the God-Emperor of Man; that is, inhumanly badass. He turns Eva 01 into a Titan. Kamina would be proud. When it comes to Shinji becoming the Emperor, all signs point to "yes." Later, Shinji leads an army of Terminators, super tanks, and psychics against a horde of zombies. Well, there's something in every chapter. Also, Rei gets orky. The author, on a forum where he has the story proof-read, made a comment that he believed that he has been writing Ritsuko too flat, and that he might have her break through as a Spark. The actual page for this sums it up:
    "This fic is not on crack. Crack is on this fic."
  • Naruto 40,000.
  • Thousand Shinji and its even more crack-tastic sequel The Open Door, To pick one plot line out off The Open Door: A daemon (who eats souls, and kills people with tentacles) named Lars and Skuld cause an industrial revolution, change the nature of magic and raise a child. Oh, and Skuld is technically the father.
  • There is a Naruto fanfic about what allegedly happened during Itachi's story. Where to start...? Well, he accidentally killed his friend during a spar, accidentally killed the entire clan (after he used the wrong side of his sword to threaten them with... oops)... the list goes on. And his super torture move? He distracts the target then screams in their face. First person to guess what goes here gets a cookie!
  • This mixes Fullmetal Alchemist and Pokémon together in a very, very weird way. The title, Pokémists: Pocket Alchemists should speak for itself.
  • All You Need Is Love from the Death Note fandom has Light/Naomi Misora as the pairing, makes Naomi the narrator, and just takes what it wants. One of the best Crack Fics in existence despite butchering of grammar.
  • Ever wondered what it would be like if Ah! My Goddess experienced a Zombie Apocalypse? It's actually quite good.
  • A Bleach fanfic version of this: Love and the Art of War. Nanao X Kenpachi Zaraki. In the words of the author, "Nanao X ...Zaraki? I have no excuse, explanation, or defense of this pairing whatsoever. So very, very sorry. The crack! It burns!" And it's actually good.
  • Slope, a Death Note Crack Fic. This fic is only particularly funny due to its radically understated final line.
  • This ridiculous Axis Powers Hetalia fanfic features, among other things, Canada behaving like a stereotypical Dastardly Whiplash-esque villain, North Italy & South Italy fighting an army of ninja hipsters, and Germany literally pulling a machine gun out of his ass. All of the fics by that author are Crack Fics to some extent, but this one just takes the cake.
  • In this one-shot Bleach fic, Aizen is accidentally defeated by being molested by Chizuru, who only saw him from the back and assumed from his super-long mullet of power that he was a girl. No summary can possibly do justice to the sheer cracky hilarity.
  • In Uninvited Guests, Yachiru burns entire 11th division while baking a cake, Hitsugaya talks with a secretly evil imaginary cat, and Godzilla appears for some reason. The catch? Once you read it, everything makes sense... a lot. This is one of rare Crack Fic that manages to be both insane yet remarkably reasonable. Also, it's the closest and the best thing we have to Bleach Abridged Series.
  • Magical Whip Girl Pretty Lotten-Chan is a pure Crack Fic. Lotten is described here as a Whip Girl and needs to save Crashtown. It is even weirder then it sounds.
  • This doujinshi crosses over Hidamari Sketch and Death Note (warning: site ads are NSFW).
  • You Got HaruhiRolled!.
  • This lovely Axis Powers Hetalia fic. The plot involves Austria's mole coming to life, and causing mayhem. Yes, you read that correctly. His mole. The author, though, fully acknoledges the weirdness, and the characters frequently break the fourth wall to comment on how strange the events happening are, and there are many pop culture refrences. The full title? The extremely amazing ballad of Austria's annoying mole and their amazing adventures when said mole comes to life: An Axis Powers Hetalia Troll Fic of EPICNESS!!! (a.k.a. the shorter title, "The Annoying Mole, a Hetalia Troll Fic").
  • Looking for a weird Pokémon fanfic? Look no further than this absolutely INSANE one-shot right here. It involves many Non Sequiturs (Yay! Kill all water bottles!), James getting squished by a "giant Mario thing", Brock eating chicken noodle soup, and a guy named Bob. It ends with Little Miss Sunshine being eaten by a random guy.
  • Even something as "ancient" as Ronin Warriors isn't immune. Case in point: Five Little Ronins and the Big Bad Talpha: "Talpa in a disco suit. Houses made of toothpicks, coral, and industrial strengh titanium steel. What more could you possibly want in a story?"
  • Another Bleach fic/Affectionate Parody, And Thus Nothing is Sacred, in which "Once upon some time, there was a kingdom ruled by Queen Chizuru, who was in love with the fair maiden Orihime, who was straight. Unfortunately, hilarity would ensue in the worst ways possible..." as a plot crossover with Snow White, elements of Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh!, and no cellphone reception.
  • Dorkly's Fan Fiction Dragon Ball Z. You have no idea what comes up with these guys' minds. Whoever made this does have something against Jason McNally though.
  • Please Stop Eating The Hell Butterflies, a Bleach Fan Fic in list-type format depicting the many things Shinigami are not supposed to do.
  • Three Thousand Four Hundred And Eighteen is an extremely bizarre Nanoha/Hellsing fusion by EarthScorpion.
  • Behold, the Death Note parody of Onegai My Melody, appropriately named "Onegai Near Mellody".
  • Code Geass Awesome Of The Rebellion turns into this past chapter 9, with Super Saiyan Communists and radiation-breathing sharks.
  • Sexy Mens: Butler and Demon Lord is a parody of all yaoi fanfiction, Ouran Highschool Host Club, and Kuroshitsujii. Kyoya takes on a contract to have Sebastian as a servant (having the contractor's symbol tattooed on his ass) and matters escalate to sex at light speed. Includes Sebastian doing DDR, Kyoya streaking, countless yaoi jokes, many video game references, teabagging and other things with a ridiculous level of awesome. It also has what might be the best (and least sexy) yaoi scene ever written.
    • "AND THEN HE STARTED DICKING BY PUTTING HIS DICK INTO THE DICKHOLE WHERE THE DICKS GO. DICKS FLAPPED EVERYWHERE, AND THERE WAS MORE GRUNTING AND GROANING THAN AT A WOMEN'S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TENNIS MATCH." And that's only the beginning...
  • The Death Note fic A Charmed Life a Ryuk/Light romance.
    Ryuk: It's... you know... lubricant—from the Shinigami world.

  • The X-Files fandom gives us the following:
  • Counts of Blood, a crossover between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Muppets with Count von Count visiting his old friend The Master in Sunnydale. Let's just say that the Count is not entirely sane, nor is he kid-friendly. It's wonderful. If Sesame Street and The Muppet Show had never been aired, and the word "frog" swapped with, say, "reporter", it would be just another Buffy fic — albeit well written.
    The Master frowned, moving towards his guest. "I have been trying to be a bit less excessive about object lessons this century. I don't want another mathematician like that fellow."
    One purple hand waved, and there smaller vampire shrugged. "I have medications for that now. There shouldn't be another situation like that as long as I take my pills. Thirty six little green pills for a twelve day visit."
    "Much better than three mathematicians in several hundred pieces," the Master shook his head.
    "One mathematician, in one hundred and sewen boxes. With a diagram of where they all went," the Count corrected. "I let his assistant go."
  • Series/Merlin fanfic A Very Hairy Situation. Gwaine's hair is so fabulous it has the power to turn people gay. And Arthur prances.
  • A LOLcat comes to Torchwood in Trying to Communicate.
  • Stargate Atlantis fandom has a thing about penguins, or more specifically, about turning its characters into penguins. John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, and Carson Beckett have all turned into penguins (the former two in multiple works). And then there was that time when McKay was a dinosaur. Or when Sheppard was a rainbow and McKay was a unicorn. Or the one where they were girl scout cookies. Socks. Ice cubes.
  • The Fourth Wall series, a Supernatural Crack Fic that features Sam being sad because everyone's jumped on the Dean/Castiel bandwagon and no fanfiction is being written about him anymore, Dean finally realising that he does love that trenchcoat-wearing Angel, Castiel eating everything remotely sugary in sight and Lucifer playing poker for M&Ms. It's amazing.
  • This story features Star Trek: The Next Generation's Enterprise being visited by The Muppets. It's just as strange as it sounds, but it WORKS. Mainly because it's Played for Laughs.
  • Uh Oh Spagettio is a cracky Smallville fic involving Clark trying to find a "double bactrian camel". Yeah...
  • The Kink Meme for the Sherlock fandom spawned a running joke that's managed to filter through into a number of non-crack fanfics regarding Anderson having an... interest in dinosaurs. Not as popular, but also present is the idea that John Watson is in love with jam, and that his character is made of kittens (more to do with the fact the actor that plays him is Martin Freeman).
  • Of Love and Bunnies is a self-described "cleverly hidden Crack Fic" about the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers and Power Rangers Dino Thunder. Surprisingly not as cracky as it could be, since the authors do a great job keeping people in character, but then they get to the Crack Pairing of Conner and Kat. Yes, the Cloudcuckoolander Red Ranger of PRDT and the Pink Ranger from MMPR, Zeo and Turbo, who is about five or six years older than him.
  • Day of the Barney distinguishes itself from the typical anti-Barney & Friends fic with its insane premise of casting Barney as a villain hellbent on taking over the world... A demonic, immortal, genuinely terrifying and competent villain, we mean.
  • This fic starts out with Penny of The Big Bang Theory killing her friends with a chainsaw. Then Barack Obama, ROBOBAMA 500 and communists show up. It must be read to be believed.
  • Running Blind is a crossover between CSI and Danny Phantom. It is glorious.
  • Downton Abbey and Zombies is Exactly What It Says on the Tin: the premise of The Walking Dead transplanted into the Downton Abbey universe, and it works. Elements of the TWD plotlines are worked into the fic, but they always make sense with the setting, and the author somehow manages to keep everyone in character while they deal with a zombie apocalypse.

  • This Super Smash Bros. Melee fanfic very much, while also taking the trope literally: ":)))) btw im smokeing weed again and also doing little cocaine"
  • This fic, featuring Wario and Waluigi going everywhere.
  • This Castlevania crack fic pitches a transvestite Alucard fighting a dinosaur Dracula with a sudden appearance of characters from Sex and the City. Filled with non-sequitur's, pop culture references, self referencing humor and extensive commentary from the author.
  • You may be unsurprised to find this. It is the greatest work of pornography ever written. About Tetris.
  • In M Is Bad, Mario gets drunk at a party then rapes Luigi.
  • Cid Wars has the Cids from Final Fantasys 2-7 teaming up to stop the first Cid, cut from the first game, whose evil plot involves hypnotizing people with Pokémon and Hanson, and something about Kudzu.
  • The strangest but most hilarious Silent Hill Crack Fic is Fic-inc.livejournal.com/407.html Pyramid Head becoming a fanfiction writer. No, really. Valtiel also becomes an effeminate gay man with a Nazi fetish, Heather decides to become a hardcore gangsta' while "Auntie Maria" becomes a zealous church go-er. Think you've had enough? Just wait until you meet the rest.
  • The Not so Villainous Duo, a The Legend of Zelda Crack Fic where Ganondorf blackmails Vaati into stopping Link. They spend 17 chapters on increasingly random and failed attempts and eventually get defeated by Dark Link, who was hired to do so by the author
  • SONIC HIGH SCHOOL is a High School A.U. Crack Fic/Troll Fic with Sonic the Hedgehog characters. It includes truckloads of Anatomically Impossible Sex, questionable grammar, really weird and frequent similes, and an extremely outrageous story.
  • Lexaeus Loves Hot Topic, a Kingdom Hearts fanfic with appearances by Harry Potter characters. The already strange premise appears to be characters from the two franchises meeting in a normal, 21st-century American shopping mall. The execution, though, is what really sells it as Crack Fic, being a (to be very charitable) disjointed stream-of-consciousness narrative, eschewing typical structure in favor of imagery through disjointed phrases and occasional syntactic contradictions, such as a narrative sentence becoming dialogue halfway through. A descriptor might almost be My Immortal and Those Lacking Spines meet Finnegan's Wake.
  • Stray is relatively down to earth, apart from the homemade time machine, a rather trippy sequence in the afterlife, and the fact that it's all done in the service of an epic love affair between a character from the 1960s and a character from the 2000s who have no on-screen interactions in the source material.
  • Reynaldo The Assassin is based upon The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in the loosest possible way. Just read the page.
  • The Hitchhikers Guide to the Stage of History, a Soul Series fanfic, is one of those rare well-written Crack Fics. It begins with Yoshimitsu being mistaken for Jesus, and ends with Setsuka trying to destroy the world with the Infinite Impobability Drive, and a climactic battle with CATS for no good reason.
  • Make A Metal Gear, which is a Metal Gear Solid/Katamari Damacy crossover. And it makes sense.
  • Once upon a time a fan challenged fanfic writers to write the craziest story that they could come up with so that he could post it on his site. The site is long gone, taking the stories with it. One of the stories was a little gem called Empire Evil, a cross between Resident Evil and Final Fantasy VI.
  • Final Fantasy XVI: Revenge of the Fishglobe! — One review puts it this way: "Revenge of the Fishglobe is not intelligent, nor sophisticated, nor cleverly crafted. But silly and stupid as it is, I have seldom laughed more in any given 5 minutes than when I was reading this fic." The author himself puts it this way: "If this story makes any sense to you, you need serious professional help."
  • So, so many Touhou doujins can fall under this trope. One particularly awesome example: Yukari Yakumo versus Yugi. Also, Yuuka versus Yukari. You'd think that someone who manipulates flowers can't win against a Reality Warper... but no, things doesn't go that way. Want to know how the battle ended? Yukari warps in a nuke on Yuka. And it didn't entirely work. It's only after Reimu threatened Yuuka to just goddamn stop already that Yuuka stopped, and even then only after Yukari had already surrendered. Also, Yuuka's backstory in this doujin is extremely disturbing (though the author did suggest that she was lying about her backstory).
  • Most Garry's Mod videos tend to be pretty "out there", but Crispy Toast Productions' Misadventures of Sekai series is notable for throwing (out of all the anime out there) School Days into the mix, putting Sekai Saionji into crossovers with Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, Grand Theft Auto IV, Super Mario Bros. and others.
  • Dissidia: Final Fantasy, because of its nature as a Massively Multiplayer Crossover for the whole Final Fantasy multiverse, could count on its own as one of the "official examples" above... but the sequel (although plot-wise it's more of a prequel) has a "quest editor" mode, which, as you can guess, can allow the player to, technically, write his own fan-fic and then make it playable. Which, of course, is awesome. Until you take Sturgeon's Law into account, since it kicks in as soon as one of the first quests (if not the first) made for the game gets uploaded on Youtube, and then you find out that, in the uploader's own words, it's about Tifa's skirt.
  • On the official Dwarf Fortress forums dwells a Crossover between Dwarf Fortress and Star Control II which purports to explain the origin of the "Adamantine Space Elevator" (a spike of adamantine ascending thousands of z-levels into the sky of one DF-generated world, probably due to an amusing Good Bad Bug). It's here.
  • Doukutsu Days and its sequel, Cave Story fanfics that add nonsensical plot points at every turn. For one, Quote starts talking.
  • Iji is this to the video game of the same name. Various crossover madness and silly things happening here and there, Gurren Lagann-grade Hot Bloodedness, mad science... and we're still waiting for the kitchen sink.
  • Omake started out as an attempt to be serious, but when a joke at the end of the first chapter takes on with fans on deviantART, the entire fanfic got a whole new makeover in storytelling style. Now instead of an AU of Final Fantasy Dissidia where the Ivalice from Final Fantasy Tactics has representatives, every character is whisked away to a very, VERY crack-induced Ivalice that makes absolutely no sense. Includes a Nyan cat cosplaying Squall Leonheart summoning a TOASTER shaped like a Jumbo Cactuar that shoots waffles and burritos. And that's just the tip of the iceberg...
  • Zombie Madness! is a Mario fic that features a crap ton of gore, love triangles, insanity, stupidity, characters acting OOC, and even more insanity.
  • Super Mario Bros Dark Horizon. Also known as the only fan game which has Adolf Hitler and the Nazis invading the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario trying to stop them with power ups and Mario physics, Mario driving tanks around and shooting the heck out of everything, Osama Bin Laden as a boss in an area based off Afghanistan... and Hitler turning Super Saiyan with the power of super science/magic! Find it here.
  • Similarly, Super Mario Bros The Revenge of the Walrus could probably count here too. Evil walruses (from Mario's Wacky Worlds) invade the Mushroom Kingdom and it's up to Mario to stop them by answering quiz questions, exploring an insane drug trip filled with cheesy clip art and fighting an evil walrus king that turns into a tank while One Winged Angel from Final Fantasy VII plays in the background. And Hitler's a secret boss.
  • Paranoia Hides In Every Corner, is a fanfic which evolves around Pikmin, which is a twisted side of the Pikmin 2 story. It contains Olimar as a Sir Swears-a-Lot character and a cannibal, Louie a Too Dumb to Live and Emo character, and the President even worse than him in stupidity, who Olimar and Louie later kills and Olimar eats him up. There are also three pikmin along the way; A stupid Gass Hole purple pikmin named Klutzy, an Ax-Crazy yellow pikmin named Picky and the Only Sane Man blue pikmin Cam. The story is so bizarre and random that you will most likely be completely weirded out while reading it. According to the author, it was all intentional.

    Webcomics 

     Web Original 
  • Toho Kingdom Toons: Well, aside from the obvious fact that the premise is based around Godzilla characters acting like humans, the show, especially recently, has gotten insane. Among other things, Gabara wears a Emperor Palpatine cloak and is a bumbling Cloudcuckoolander, Gabara and Monster X are movie critics, Godzilla is Happily Married to Cthulhu, Spacegodzilla hosts a talk show, there's a flying pirate ship called the S.S. Bootylicious, and Biollante fights Katz Kandy in space with a reference to LOLCats. Yes, I shit you not.
  • The web series School of Thrones, which asks the question: "What if A Song of Ice and Fire were a teenage drama series about cliques battling it out in high school to decide who became prom king and queen?" It even has a pen-and-paper version of the show's famous intro sequence. Hipster!Starks and Nerdy!Stannis ensues.

    Western Animation 
  • This is a collection of Avatar: The Last Airbender Crack Fics; some work, some don't.
  • The Transformers Animated Crack Fic You Never ARGH WHAT AM I WEARING? featured Starscream having sex with Blitzwing, a character with multiple personalities. Blitzwing was wearing high heels, fishnet tights, and a thong all through the fanfic. What made the fanfic even more crack was finding out which personality was really in charge when it started.
  • Beast Wars has its own Crack Fic in Beast Wars: Make it Real Big. Optimus Primal evolves into Rapidash, Cheetor dies but continues to contribute to the dialogue via gas emissions and the character of Airazor turns out to be a cleverly disguised "Airazor Bomb."
  • Osama's Last Stand by Fireand'chutes777 is one of those rare examples of a Crack Fic done right. The basic premise is simple: Action Girl heroine Kim Possible is called in by President Bush after Al-Qaeda attacks America on April 23rd, 2007 to kick aforementioned terrorist organization to the curb (hence the title). It should be an exaggerated stream of Girl Power and Eagleland patriotism, it should have terrible grammar and be wrapped up in one chapter, it should spit in the face of basic physics, but what happened instead was a 128,000 word novel that would not look out of place at all in a book store with the name Tom Clancy printed in big bold letters on the front (ironic in that the author hadn't even touched a Tom Clancy book until he was done with the third story in his series). Even though the author himself admits the reader needs to apply a healthy dose of Willing Suspension of Disbelief to get past some of the set-up, once one does it's a very enjoyable story for any technothriller fan.
  • Slave Bear of Care-A-Lot is Care Bears BDSM/non-con porn. It's as well-written as one could expect it to be, as is all the best Crack Fic.
  • William Country of Total Drama fanworks is a literal Crack Fic in that the animator reportedly did drugs while making it. The plot itself is fairly straightforward (although it does involve a character in a relationship with an Original Character who looks like himself), but there are countless unusual moments, related to the plot or otherwise, and bizarre background events (such as a bunch of buses flipping around while Chris is narrating). All in all, it's somewhat surreal. It's also notable for being the first — and so far, possibly only — full length Fan Film of Total Drama, measuring at about ninety minutes should you combine all its parts together. That is, if you can find all the parts, as often times they get taken down after being uploaded.
  • This series of Danny Phantom fics have their own titles, but are generally known as The Crack. That's right, it's a Crack Fic actually called The Crack. It takes one of the show's least reasonable pairings, brutally "forces them together", and throws in mpreg to boot. Surprisingly, this is considered one of the best fics in the fandom—all 102 chapters of it.
  • Bart The General, a nonsensical quartet of The Simpsons videos where Toadfish from Neighbors crosses over and Marge cheats on Homer with him. The first episode is straightforeward, if having Deranged Animation, but subsequent episodes show more of the city (renamed from Springfield to Duckberg), and showcase that it's nothing like Simpsons at all. The third episode is complete and utter Mind Screw that hops from one subject to another and seems to have characters getting in and out of situations with no explanation given.
  • Iron Man: Kindergarten Adventures is proclaimed by the author to be crack, probably because the West Virginia Mothman becomes central to the plot in the last chapter.
  • Horny Lil Devils takes the Horny Devils trope and applies it to the entire cast of Kim Possible. Notable for keeping the characters recognizable while totally ignoring everything in canon (chapter five is titled: "Punching Canon in the Throat). It's utterly hysterical from start to finish. Too bad it seems to be a Dead Fic, though.
  • The Total Drama Island fanfic Illogical is an interesting example because it takes place inside Izzy's mind (which is saying a lot) and the Crack Pairing is between two of her personalities.
  • Beating the Heat: The main (sorry, mane) characters of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic go into an Element of Harmony-induced heat... and surprisingly it doesn't devolve into a porn story. Instead the plot is focused around the six mares (and soon everypony else) resisting their urges long enough to stop the heat before it spreads through every pony in the land, including the two princesses, and the entire world ends in one massive orgy. What sex does happen is generally not referenced explicitly and played thoroughly for laughs; the story instead focuses on the absurdity of the situation.
  • Of Cartoons, Randomness, and Beef Jerky: This story involves Dora the Explorer teaming up with characters such as Winnie-the-Pooh, Phineas and Ferb, and Tinker Bell and going to visit Hello Kitty's house for some beef jerky. Among other things, it's Reference Overdosed, Barney is hit by a roller coaster, a Yandere Isabella appears, and Kenny dies. It's actually pretty funny and worth reading.
  • The Many Secret Origins of Scootaloo: This story manages to crack over 20 Crack Fics into a single story. The premise is that Twilight Sparkle has decided to find out the origin of a filly named Scootaloo. Cue nearly every character on the show, from her best friends to the rulers of Equestria telling their own Crack Fic about Scootaloo. The origins include Scootaloo being a Michael Westonese spy, Equestria's version of Kamen Rider, a Dr. Seuss character, John Connor, and a Disney Princess. The bridging story is just as bad: Twilight adopted a Dalek named Rollypolly, Princess Cadence caused a hockey game to be called off due to "orgy", Discord sang "Call Me Maybe" with Deadpool and the author himself, Rarity rapped and made herself look like Snooki, Princess Luna thought Twilight was her baby and put her in a diaper, Shining Armor sang The Lonely Island songs, and Fluttershy frenched Twilight in an attempt to save her life.
  • Daring Do and the Jungle of Terror. It's like a Troll Fic, but passed through the /mlp/ section of 4chan, and then shat out. It was compiled into a paperback "novella", and is for sale on Amazon with all proceeds going to charity.
  • This extremely short My Little Pony fanfic. Interestingly enough, the author admits that he wrote the story at 2 AM on an iTouch while on painkillers. So yes, it was made on drugs.
  • The Son Of The Emperor is not only a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Equestria-on-earth story... it's also a biopic of the childhood life of Napoleon II. Written by a guy simply known as No More Sanity. You heard right.
  • Bring Me All Your Elderly. After watching their live action adaptation, and finding it wanting, the Gaang decide to enter the movie-verse and fix it by giving their live action counterparts Character Development. It eventually ends with Zuko reading the entire story on Mai's iPad, Aang getting drunk on cactus juice, Movie!Katara and Movie!Zuko having a make-out session, half the cast getting a diseases that causes them to speak in long, redundant sentences that are needlessly long and movie!Aang fighting M. Night Shyamalan to prevent him from making the sequel.
