So Bad Its Good / Fan Works
aka: Fanfic

"Dear John Freeman, How are you? I Miss you at home come home safe and soon with Gordon Freeman for thanksgiving diner. Love mom."
Half-Life: Full Life Consequences 2: What has tobe done

A lot of fanfiction falls under this regard. It's bad. In mild cases it's because of the quality of presentation, with terrible spelling, punctuation and spacing making an otherwise quality story almost unreadable. Some have what is basically an Excuse Plot that showcases a certain character or is a reason to go from one sex scene to the next.

But good or bad, there's still something about it that compels you to read on. Something horrible. Something funny. Something nauseating. Or somebody just dared you.

If you turned this story into a movie, it would be embraced by Grindhouse theaters everywhere. It would be the B-Movie in a Double Feature. And it would still attract crowds.

Sturgeon's Law has its part to play, as do Stealth Parody and Troll Fic.

  • The Human Centipede: Love at First Bite. MST here. A PWP fic that attempts to make the original film lighter and softer by pairing a Mary Sue with Doctor Heiter, who's lost all his evil depravity and just wants to boff her brains out. Would be in So Bad, It's Horrible territory if it weren't for the author's use of unusual euphemisms such as "his bratwurst" "her Santa's Grotto" and "plundering the village". The FanFiction Critic also mocks it here.
  • Root Her!, an utterly insane Jurassic Park fanfic that revolves around an extra named "Joffrey" (apparently named after the actor who played him) getting raped to death and eaten by a female velociraptor while Muldoon watches and masturbates. It would normally be horrifying were it not for the fact that the author was obviously having a blast trying to think of the most ludicrous Purple Prose and unusual euphemisms imaginable to refer to what's going on; the act of Muldoon jerking off is referred to as him "energetically pumping his purple shotgun", the raptor is described as a "carrion-scented Aphrodite", Joffrey gets sprayed with "putrid velociraptor love Tabasco", the word "velocigina" is used at one point... it just goes on and on in a carousel of WTF-ery. Read the Topless Robot MST-ing of it here.
    • The worst thing about this? The author actually seems to be a competent writer.
  • Yoda. And. Tequila.

  • The infamous My Immortal, a plotless Harry Potter fic that stars Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Tara Raven Way, a "goff" [end sarcasm quotes] Mary Sue pastiche (mostly Jerk Sue) with "icy blue eyes like limpid tears" who's So Beautiful, It's a Curse. The author managed to turn everyone into either a goth "goffik" or a prep (like Dumbledore, who has a robe with Avril Lavigne on it) and the spelling gets worse and worse through the fanfic. Whether she's a troll or if the author was serious when she wrote it is under debate, but if it's a joke, that means she's one of the most meticulous trolls in history. It's the only fanfic that's been turned into a movie and a published novel. It's also been translated into a dozen languages.
    • My Immortal isn't so bad it's good, it's so horrible it's awesome.
    • The part about being translated into a dozen languages is especially impressive, since it was barely even written in English. Try listening to a dramatic reading of it without reading along.
  • Celebrian has a whole meta-game around it based on trying to get people with weak stomachs to read it. Even then, the story has its fans simply for being full of Narm and for being so laughably over-the-top in its Squickiness that it Crosses the Line Twice. Someone even started a dramatic reading.
    Reviewer: It's not that it's so disgusting, but it goes ON AND ON. And it's so BORING. How can torture, S&M and all that other crap be so irrevocably BORING? Half the time I don't even go 'ew'. I just look at the scroll bar and think, "What? Not even halfway through? GOD!"
  • Not nearly as bad, but still a sterling example of how crappy fanfiction can get, is the Harry Potter tale called A Sad Story. It's a oneshot wherein Harry is regularly beaten by Uncle Vernon, falls in love with a girl with her own abusive guardian, and is killed. The author doesn't give a damn about continuity, characterization, or common sense. ('... he grabbed Harry by the neck and dragged him to the garden Shed. He padlocked the door with at least 20 locks.')
    • "... His Uncle then pulled out a shotgun, with a silencer on it..."
    • Or Uncle Vernon's line, "It's too late, my dear".
  • After the Abuse, Part One commits the cardinal sin of making My Immortal look coherent by comparison. It turns Snape into an Ax-Crazy psychopath who brutalizes and murders the Dursleys for unspecified "abuse" of Harry, then decides to randomly commit a terrorist attack by blowing up a city with a nuclear bomb. Oh, and in case you're wondering, there's no Part Two.
  • the awesome adventures of amynda in the fayz!!!!! is basically My Immortal meets the Gone series. It has literally no plot, manages to combine No Bisexuals with Everyone Is Bi, and has such egregious Protagonist-Centered Morality that the "good guys" literally whip young children for fun, while the "antagonists" don't seem to be guilty of anything but existing.
  • The Harry Potter fanfic "Becoming Female". It starts off as the usual Harry-is-turned-into-a-girl-by-a-potion-accident-and-gets-paired-with-Draco story, but then it gets worse better. All the male characters disliked by the author, particularly Ron, are "sexist" in a ridiculously over-the-top manner and even refer to themselves as "sexist". Female characters disliked by the author tolerate this and are thus considered "sluts". Might be a Troll Fic, but it's hard to tell as the author claims it's partially a comedy, which would explain the occasional random humor ("At that moment, Dumbledore rode into the hospital wing on a unicycle wearing an old-fashioned bathing suit."). You can see a Dramatic Reading of the first half of chapter one here.
    • The Troll Fic hypothesis seems likely, given that each chapter starts with an utterly insane description of what all the female character are wearing, as well as the near-constant "I also had underwear on".
    • There's a sporking here. There used to be a sequel titled "Being Female", but it seems to have been deleted. It included a memorable part where "Crystal" is sent back to live with the Dursleys, who turn out to be "Christian fundamentalists" and the portrayal is as ridiculous as you're imagining. The first chapter, at least, survives here.
  • Another Harry Potter fanfic with the delightful name of The Chronicles of Merlin: The Return, which features Harry as the reincarnation of Merlin. Pretty much everyone (save maybe Ron and Hermione) are Out of Character, and includes such gems as Draco inviting Harry to stay over the summer, but adding "My father still has a problem with mixed bloods and the poor, so Ron and Hermione can't come".
  • What happens when you take an original-flavour Harry Potter Mary Sue, pair her with Ron the Death Eater and heap on the Deus Angst Machina until it crosses the line from tragedy to hilarity and sends her into the willing arms of Draco Malfoy? You get Dark Secrets, which can be read in its NSFW entirety here.
  • Deserving, which is what you get if you combine the plot coherence of My Immortal, the prose composition of The Eye of Argon and the tastefulness of FATAL. Featured on weepingcock twice, and described by one sporker as "not quite as bad as Hogwarts Exposed".
  • A similar Twilight Badfic by the name of Forbidden Fruit: The Temptation of Edward Cullen. Atlantiana Rebekah "Tiaa" Loren, a moody young lady who speaks in internet acronyms, enrolls at Forks High, where she promptly grabs everyone's attention, including that of the hawt pale guy Edward Cullen, who is now speaking a baffling combination of Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe and ALL CAPS, a 'fat and bald' uncle who subjects her to two paragraphs of IKEA Erotica rape, and a 'tall white man' who announces himself to be her father. Combine this with the protagonist's status as a gothic vampire and the fact that the story positivley thrives on Rouge Angles of Satin, and claims that this may be My Immortal's greatest rival thus far don't seem too far off. Also, there's a talking panda bear. A talking, gay panda bear.
  • Forbidden Love: The Iliad. It's only one paragraph long, but what a paragraph it is. The fact that it's about the freaking Iliad only makes it worse.
    • *better
  • The Girl Who Lived series, a half-rewrite (the other half is just ported directly from the actual books themselves with minor tweaks) of the Harry Potter books with a Gender Flip and a whole lot of other changes. Pretty much the biggest and most direct Canon Defilement possible, it starts out by arrogantly decrying J.K. Rowling for screwing up the series and goes about "fixing" it by removing every single one of Harry's flaws while also (intentionally or unintentionally) completely changing his personality to a Sociopathic "Hero". Instead of a ruthlessly oppressed kid living under the stairs that eventually becomes a mediocre wizard with heart, "Rose" is now the poster child of New Powers as the Plot Demands (with plenty of "hey, look at me, I'm cool!" stuff to go with it) while getting away with pretty much everything. Watch as the series completely paves over everything "bad" about the canon and introduces Plot Holes by the truckload! Marvel as Rose torments her "friends" in ways that make Voldemort seem tolerable! Endure as the series goes to extreme lengths for Author Appeal while denying it every step of the way! One would suspect a troll like My Immortal, but if so, it's certainly an obsessive one.
  • Goffik Blood, another My Immortal clone that would probably be unremarkable if not for how completely and utterly bizarre it is. As one would imagine, the spelling and grammar are atrocious, but it's also littered with author's notes in which the writer halts the plot to make strange proclamations like "LUV TRAUMAS R ZO HOT" or "vampyrs arnt homo sapeins", and to call the story itself a Random Events Plot would be a severe understatement. It has something to do with Mary Sue character Goffika Sorrows randomly falling in love with Voldemort (also known in-story as "Volxemort", "VOLDEMRTRT", and on one notable occasion, "VOLDNEBGREOUUBU"), and then killing him, Enoby herself making a cameo only to die as well, Voldemort inexplicably coming back to life to get "TREVENGE", only to fall in love with Goffika and rape her "sexily", a skirt that can destroy things, Hagrid getting sacrificed to "Stan", a talking horse that was actually Goffika's friend Blood who also raped her but then didn't... really, absolutely nothing in this fic follows logically from anything else. The entire thing is a huge, poorly-spelled Mind Screw.
  • Harry Potter And The Portrait Of What Looked Like A Large Pile Of Ash is what you get when you let a predictive text AI write a chapter of Harry Potter after feeding it all seven books.
  • Harry Potter, Gay Demon, a fanfic about how Harry wakes up one day looking incredibly sexy. He then proceeds to have sex with anything from Sirius in dog form to all five Weasly brothers at once. He somehow winds up being Hogwarts' (and, namely, Draco's) Sex Slave. Notable for the massive cock sizes, absurd amounts of semen, emphasis on Harry's 'man-pussy' and its usage of Not If They Enjoyed It Rationalizations.
  • Harry's Darkness—it's like My Immortal the Slash and M Preg edition.
  • Hermione's New Change is about Hermione finding out she's adopted and is actually Draco's cousin, and of course they enter an incestuous relationship. Only the first two chapters are here because it was deleted from the original site, but it still contains some gems.
    • Here is a copy of the full story.
  • Hermione's Talent is basically what you get if you throw My Immortal into a blender with Jerry Springer and Glee. It's every bit as hilariously terrible as you'd expect. The fraction of the fic that isn't copy-pasted anachronistic song lyrics sports horrible spelling and grammar and everyone says "fuck" every other word. There are no descriptions, everyone is wildly OOC and Hermione's actual talent is nowhere to be seen. And as if all that wasn't enough, there's a random pointless rape scene.
  • HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, a.k.a. Thirty Hs. Think My Immortal if it were written by Tenacious D on paper made of the brain matter of David Cronenberg using a pen made of a severed dragon cock turned into a Super Soaker, and Liquid Schwartz was the ink. Particularly impressive in that it's so indescribably twisted that it has no flames in over a hundred reviews. Warning: starts out somewhat squicky, but gets much worse after about chapter three.
  • Hidden Prophecies Prophices is likely a trollfic, but it's still hilarious as it can be. It's a Warrior Cats fanfic and you've really just got to see it to believe it.
    • Part of what makes it so hilarious is that, with its actually okay-ish grammar and spelling, it genuinely seems like a ten-year-old girl doing her damnedest.
  • Hogwarts Exposed, in general it's just plain bad but some of the dialogue edges into So Bad, It's Good. "Most certainly it's wrong to expose your private area!"
  • Hogwarts of Heaven by Silver Suffering. Every single chapter of this... thing makes no sense. Here is an example with the first sentence. "Chestere Le Valiente played a rocking electric guitar solo on his shiny wooden saxaphone and wondered what life would be like if he was a female 16 year old Indonesian gymnast who was secretly working to bring down the government and force the world to wear pink tuxedos." Random cameos include Squall Leonhart, Penelope Pitstop, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Chuck Norris, Shinji Ikari and Dorothy Zbornak. Also, the author seems to plan to write 100 chapters of this...
  • Horny demigods and gods is a Percy Jackson fanfic by Connorkenway00 is either this or a masterfully done trollfic. The author's first fanfic, the story or lack thereof, writing style, title and description, and less than strong grammar fit the definition of smut to a T. The spontaneous sex scenes and bizarre dialogue, such as Annabeth's "sexist bra" is side splitting.
  • The Harry Potter fanfic Imma Wiserd deserves some mention; the story is beyond absurd. Everyone is a gangster or a white "rassist" in Hogwarts, including Harry Potter who as it turns out is black but a white actor was chosen instead for the audience. Perhaps its defining sequence is a game of Qudditch where not only are all the houses in play, but the Ravenclaw team are all killed by Voldemort before the match begins, leaving the lead characters Soulja and Harry to win the game... and then the Ku Kux Klan appear and start shooting at the protagonists.
    • The writer of this is hilariously convinced that Snape is a Jew because he knows big words (i.e. non-slang words) and thus has him use a giant dollar bill like a flying carpet. Later on, Hermione decides not to travel back in time, to when Biblical figures attended Hogwarts (!) with Pontius Pilate (Or "Pumpass Pilot") as headmaster (!!), based on the absence of pretty dresses and sewing machines (!!!) in the past.
    • Did we mention that Hermione's Patronus is a vacuum cleaner?
  • Recently rediscovered by snarker Serkadios, Twilight fanfic The Kronicals of Rebecca Swansin has been sitting on for about two years, almost completely unnoticed. Since being found, though, it has gained love (and several headcanons and one Fan Fic, possibly with more coming soon) by the same people who brought you the Brewdening Love Expanded Universe.
  • The Last War would be terrible for the way it turns Harry into a Gary Stu, Ron into an abusive monster, Hermione into a Distressed Damsel and later a murderer and bigamist who never faces any consequences and Ginny into the third Fat Slag. However, the overwrought angst drives it here instead. Even before they start dancing to "Always" by Erasure, whose connotations seem to have escaped the author.
  • Legolas: Back to the Future, which is basically a Canadian teenage girl's diary with Legolas stuck in somehow. Notable for its aggressive wholesomeness and lack of nearly any standard "Fictional Character is 'Bamfed' Into The Real World" tropes. The fic's gone from now, but you can find an MSTing here.
    • Particular note must be made of the shamelessly blatant Mary Sueness of main character Crystal, who reveals her self as (in no particular order): an excellent cook, singer, musician, dancer, horseback rider, mechanic, a practitioner of La Savatenote  capable of throwing standing kicks above Legolas' head, a church youth group leader, possessing of a Death Glare that could cow anyone (including Legolas) and she teaches a music classnote  at the local community center. And oh yeah, she's also telepathic and telekinetic.
  • legolas by laura is a masterpiece of terrible spelling, worse grammar, Beige Prose, and incredible amounts of Narm ("... and then one of the Orcs striped her and then he raped her and then Laura said "go away you bastard"."). Best experienced in hammy Dramatic Reading form, courtesy of Man Without A Body: [2]
  • Moon Daughter: According to one reviewer, "So this is what Percy Jackson would look like if it was written by a 13-year-old with a low IQ while high." It follows an emo Mary Sue, Flavia Knight, the only daughter of Artemis, as she hates on preps and blondes, bashes the Out of Character Canon cast, and tries to decide whether to be a virgin "like her mom" or seduce Nico di Angelo. Or Alabaster Torrington. Or Hades. Or Chiron... (the list goes on.) Also features Mr. D. watching porn, Annabeth being turned into a "grape with no soul," and lines such as:
    "Hate drove me like preemium fule."

    "Kronos laughed like Hitler after killing a Jew."
  • My first Christmas with Harry potter. Yes, it's awful wish fulfilment. But it's worth it to see dialogue like this:
    "Harry potter stop your going to make me drop this." missy said giggling
    "Hey you did promise me that we could have some adult fun time when I got home from work." Harry said
    "Ok we will have some adult fun time now." missy said
  • Passion Night, a mercifully short Lupin/Sirius Slash Fic complete with IKEA Erotica, 10-inch wangs and lovingly described fluids. Not to mention Shapeshifting Squick. Features the following hilarious exchange (yes, all those vowels were in the original):
    "IF I GO ANY FASTER WE WILL BE AT HYPER SPEEEEEED!" Lupin shouted trying not to moan while he shouted.
  • Phoenix's Life is a Harry Potter fanfic which has achieved legendary status on Pottersues for one Narmtastic line:
    But Harry's body skimmed the surface of the lake and then, in a true blaze of glory, he transformed into a magnificent phoenix. And some say, as he soared into the sun set, that he yelled "IT'S MY LIFE" before he retreated into the clouds to never return.
  • Pride & Predujice, the Wedding Edition is an anachronistic, horribly-spelled Pride and Prejudice fanfic involving a werewolf-fighting Lizzy Bennet, an armour-plated Pemberley, laser-eyed Edward Rochester, and Jane Eyre wielding nunchuks.
  • The Redwall fanfic Shadow Rapes Matthias. Well, at least you can't say it doesn't deliver what it promises. Crash course: Matthias is the mouse hero, and Shadow is the ninja-thief-rat sent by the villain to infiltrate Redwall Abbey. In canon, they were onstage together for about three seconds, which consisted of a fight/chase scene as Shadow attempted to get the MacGuffin back to his boss. MST'd here. Be warned that Matthias is, for no apparent reason but the obvious, noted to be 13, at least according to Word of God and the TV series. The author's note which says so could be a clumsily phrased attempt at saying he's meant to be older in the fic, but just in case. The same author did two more fics, featuring Martin the Warrior and numerous other male characters performing physically implausible actions, which are also MSTed on the linked blog. Watch out for the completely random Spellsinger Shout-Out.
    • The MST is nothing short of brilliant, for all three of this horrible author's works. Bonus points for bringing in Romsca for the last MST, which turns out exactly as twistedly awesome as one could hope.
    "The high warm sun shone down on Cluny the Scourge ..."
    "Cluny was c-"
    "If either of you finish that sentence, I'm going to hang you both from each other's intestinal tracts!"
  • SHERLOK HOMS, a trollfic written by famous DA troll Manty 64 in which "Sherlok Homs", Ben, and Wallace Wells must catch "Soicide Mouse" and "Soicide Sonic".
  • Shits Bricks, a seven-line "poem" about how Severus Snape... doesn't actually shit bricks but farts them.
  • Again in Redwall, the Transplanted Character Fic Soulless Shell, found here. Loaded with Accidental Innuendo, No Punctuation Period, a Marty Stu to end all Marty Stus ... MST can be found here.
    He slashed him in the stomach then he hit him on the floor now feel the pain that so many innocent young girls like her have felt but with oh so much more intensity
    Lyulf: Huh, I guess the sword wasn't overcompensatin', love.
  • Behold Nick The Swing's terrible, but hilarious, fan fiction of Harry Potter: Stand My Ground, the My Immortal Parody designed to exceed My Immortal!
  • StarKitsProphcy. There are thousands of horrific Warrior Cats fanfics out there, due to its tendency to attract young readers who don't really understand the plot, but this one takes the cake. The "plot" begins when StarClan recieves a prophecy, obviously regarding a sparkling Mary Sue known as StarKit, proclaiming that "out of the darkness, stars will come and get rid of the evil tiger and holly." It goes downhill from there. StarGleam winds up with at least four toms in love with her (all of whom are much older than she is, and one of whom is her great grandfather), becomes a warrior after 3.14 days of apprenticeship, delivers the (brutally massacred) Ten Commandments (of which there are eleven) in an obvious attempt to evangelize the writer's own beliefs, takes over as leader when Firestar steps down for her, and has many more Rouge Angles of Satin-filled adventures. It's truly magnificent, be it a Troll Fic or not.
    • Highlights include:
      • "And held out... SOME JEW!"
      • "GayStrip locked at hr meanly."
      • "Wit a rar like an volcano erection she jumped at StarGlaem!"
      • "'!' said StarPaw ass she ruan in to the forest. It wus to muck# she culdnt choss!"
      • "'theyre names were DawnSpark;e and... Stick/ saud JayFeather."
      • "Everyone jumped at the HoBare!"
      • "AND THEN STARGLEAM WAS DIED!11!111!11111!1!11!"
      • "'MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!11!1!1!11!' yelled StarGleamStar walking up. She juts culdnt be in loe with HawkForest she just could!11!1!11!"
  • Thomas Joshman is a series of... well, he never says they're Harry Potter fan fics, but it's set in a world just like Harry Potter. Almost every character or concept has a clear equivalent (Tom = Harry, Tim = Ron, Quelfree = Snape, Bendrist = Dumbledore, Milkenshland = Hogwarts, Teams 1-10 = the Houses, etc.), and it isn't unusual for actual phrases to be lifted (albeit misspelled and out of context) from the Harry Potter books themselves. It also includes bizarre dialogue, including quite a lot of ridiculously specific times ("He saw Quelfree scold Frederick for being on the pitch 2 ¼ seconds late"). Strange equivalents are chosen for Harry Potter's plot points - for example, whereas Harry was suspicious about the wound on Snape's leg, Tom was suspicious about Quelfree's "scrunchy face" (your guess is as good as ours about what that means). The author sometimes seems to forget which things are different from Harry Potter - for example, Milkenshland looks like a "normal human-looking school" in the first book, but it's a castle in the others, and the plane they take to school is referred to as a "train" at least twice. Some characters are also incredibly stupid, managing to forget key plot points just so that the reader can find them out in advance. Tom is even amazed that Tim knows the names of their closest friends, apparently never managing to learn them himself. A few more quotes:
    "[A] Team 10 boy with blonde hair walked up the corridor and said 'Haha its Joshy. His stupid famous 30 year old mother was a pile of sweaty socks. Births in 1981. She would've died if that idiot Joshy wasn't born'.note "
    "Quelfree looked like he just been battered by a bowling ball so Tom said to Tim 'Has he been battered by a bowling ball' until Tim was confused and asked 'What's a bowling ball' Tom said nevermind and Quelfree gave them both detentions for no reason."
    "'What's a Crinker' asked Tom. 'Evil dolphins that can survive on land, they feed on Human and Wizard prey for jokes and cannibalize their own species when they die for fun' explained Tim. Suddenly a green eyed dolphin grabbed Tom's leg and it got bitten off. Tim helped Tom to the hospital quickly until Oswald met Tim again and tripped them over into the Crinkers. Tim lost an ear and a nose while Tom lost a hand and 3 eyelashes. Tom woke up in the hospital a week later with 50 bandages on him."

  • Twila The Girl Who Waz In Luv With A Vampyre stars "Twila Beatiful Psyco Topaz Cullen" who was later renamed "Twila Beautiful Psyco Topaz Sad'ness Damian Cullen". It contains a gratuitous Buffi The Vampir Slayer Cameo, a thoroughly OOC Bella, now cast as an Alpha Bitch-esque cheerleader, Tiaa doing a Operation: Jealousy with Edward's dad who turns out the be the devil, and Edward, Twila, and Hamez killing Bella, and then eating her bed.
  • The Warrior Cats of WolfClan series by Flamestripe of Wolfclan. A massive Marty Stu, ridiculous plot devices (like everything randomly going backwards, a cat with a cowboy hat, and talking wolves who bring cats back to life), a skewed sense of morality, how every single time a cat dies their tail twitches and they're okay, and the overblown nature of the story, create a masterpiece of bad writing.
  • Warrior Mouse Code is a Warrior Cats fanfic... about the clans' prey. Bad grammar, a Marty Stu who, even though being a mouse, befriends Firepaw, is teased for being a half-breed,as a habit of spouting curse words constantly and is made 'second deputy' because that's just how the mouse clans work. Seriously.
  • Winnie The Pooh Assimilated By The Borg. A Crack Fic of the highest order. The Borg invade the Hundred Acre Wood, murdering Rabbit before assimilating Pooh. The rest of the story consists of Pooh of Borg assimilating or murdering everyone, eventually ending with the entire cast part of the Collective or dead. Should be terrible, but the sheer over-the-top nature (Pooh of Borg kills Piglet over not sharing his honey) elevates it to this level.
    • The very words "Pooh of Borg" alone justify the existence of this work.

  • "A Raptor's Lust", an "erotic" fanfic starring a younger, 13-year-old Lara Croft and a velociraptor. MST-ed by Topless Robot here, this story gave the world a No Yay human-and-raptor "romance", some of the most extreme examples of Anatomically Impossible Sex, Rob's commentary degenerating into multiple lines of "HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE" and death threats against the author, and copious misuse of the verb "whickered".
  • The aftermath of Ashe's life, a Final Fantasy XII fanfic by Ashe 10 that centers around Ashe having sex. A lot. As Ashe says, "All queens are not all innocent. I am just a nasty queen. What do you expected?" She also has a tendency to call her lovers sexy mutha fuckas. Although Ashe's husband, Rasler (Or Rassler, as the author calls him) is the real standout in the story, providing gems such as, "Who the fuck is you talking to in that tone!" and "WHAT!? YOU DONE AN AFFAIR!"
  • The Modern Warfare 2 fanfic "The Beta Threat". The entire plot can be summarized as "Marty Stu protagonist kills a bunch of Card-Carrying Villain terrorists, goes to jail because he failed to save a single hostage, and is called back into action to kill more terrorists." The spelling is... unspeakable.
  • The (extremely NSFW, now-removed) Pokémon Black and White fanfic "Bloody Love". The story features Burgh as a Yandere Serial Killer who's obsessed with forcing Grimsley to have sadomasochistic sex with him! Burgh suffers extreme Character Derailment while at the same time having his camp traits taken Up to 11 to the point he sings just about every line he says and makes a (possibly unintentional) reference to Damn Yankees. Meanwhile Grimsley has become Too Dumb to Live and doesn't seem to have the faintest clue about how creepy Burgh is acting until it's too late. However, regulars in the Pokémon Black and White fandom may be impressed by how it's Burgh chasing Grimsley this way rather than the other way around!
  • Bowser's Mexico Adventure, because while most Mario fan fiction falls under this category, this one stands a bit above them. After all, where else will you find in addition to Bowser (of the Wet variety, whatever that means), Boba Fett and C-3PO, Nedry, Aladdin, Mozenrath, Joel and the Bots and Bear Grylls? Possibly a Troll Fic, but still so bad it's good.
  • Breakdown, a Persona 3 fanfic, has the cast dying in improbable ways, and Mitsuru coping by becoming a prostitute, then running into traffic and dying. If technically passable, the whole thing is pretty ridiculous and handled very poorly.
    • If you weren't laughing throughout, the final line is a guaranteed LOL. Roxius in general is great for incomprehensible fics, and the confused/angry/scared reviewers.
  • Superhadou's Crystal Man's Journey is a fanfic about the robot masters from Mega Man 5 going into the future to help X and Zero battle Mavericks and Sigma with Crystal Man as their leader. Though the grammar isn't awful, it contains awful puns, random songs and generally over the top fight scenes.
  • Doom: The Unseen Version(NSFW). A badly written smutfic in which the people stationed in Mars get it on with the demons after all Hell breaks loose. You will never look at Doom the same way again... it makes Impse look tame.
  • Ecco the Dolphin And the Swim Meet. It's only a hundred-something words long, so the plot doesn't make sense and is over before you know it. There's also numerous typos and jokes that make absolutely no sense. But all of these combine to be bizarrely entertaining. And then there's the ending.
  • The Evil Alliance, written by cloudacsephac, is a Final Fantasy Mega Crossover that features impenetrable, pseudo-Faulknerian stream of consciousness prose. Cloud and Squall inexplicably team up (along with a Cloud-chasing Relationship Sue named Blaze) to take down the eponymous alliance of Sephiroth and Ultimecia. The author's tangled, incoherent prose, bizarre plotting and interminable fight scenes make this a must read. Good luck trying to figure out who's speaking at any given time.
  • Amelia_nekomimi's (now named GARGOULES) "Fire Emblem: Ike's Journey" takes elements from both Blazing Blade, Sacred Stones and the Tellius games, adds some Mary-Sue and a bit of Self-Insert and mixes it all with a delicious dose of Peter Chimaera-level writing to create an epic tale of love, sacrifice, pink weapons from the future and magic rocket horses. It's filled with memorable quotes such as "I kill him with cuts and a catle fall on his head" and "ONLY MUCH WORST". While it seems to be a Troll Fic, from the fact that the author edited the title due to advice from a reader, it's very hard to tell. Even if you're not a Fire Emblem fan, you'll laugh at how ridiculous it all is.
  • Hell Hath Fury, a Doom fanfiction featuring a Gary Stu protagonist. It contains every Doom fanfiction cliche. It's also overly long and badly written.
  • Imp Encounter, an infamous Doom fanfic that satirizes sex fanfiction by having the Doom Guy, under the influence of a berserk pack, brutally rape and kill a female imp (The Goomba of the first Doom, arguably even easier than the zombies for an experienced player to kill). The story and the sex scene have become Memetic Mutation in the Doom community, with a tribute site named, an infamous animated GIF, and even a cutscene level.
  • ITS MY LIFE! for Portal. Marrissa Roberts, Chell's sister, is at first just living in the "portal labs" but then the fan fiction slowly turns into fighting villains of a greater and greater scale.
  • "Laughter" is a Pokémon Diamond and Pearl fanfic that attempts to explain some things about Cyrus's past. The writing is competent and some of the ideas it raises are interesting, but the random, senseless gruesome torments inflicted on Cyrus come out of nowhere and the first and second chapters gel together so badly they might as well be two completely separate stories. The fic is laughable for its sheer Refuge in Audacity.
  • Left 2 Die 4ever. The plot is pretty faithful and original at the same time considering it's Left 4 Dead.
  • The Legund of Lik.(The original story is deleted, the link goes to a dramatic reading.) Link fights monsters from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and makes horrible puns. The writing is so atrocious that it's probably intentional. Do not read this in a library, because you will laugh. Hard.
    • The story has now been reposted go here if you want to read it
  • Lust Penis (obviously NSFW), an infamous MS Paint Star Fox fan comic. Fox McCloud gets transformed into a dinosaur sex slave by General Scales, who violates him anally and transforms him again into a gigantic, living penis, fusing him with an enormous statue, which then proceeds to anally violate another enormous statue. After creating a river of semen, Fox regains consciousness, reverts back to his former self, and agrees that even though the whole thing was just a plot by Scales to have sex with him, he'd still like to do it again sometime. For those who aren't easily offended, it's utterly hilarious in its total ineptitude and bizarre plot.
  • "Mario Sex-ed." (Video might be NSFW depending on how your work place looks at it.) A video where Mario, who spouts food puns at every oppertunity, and Luigi, who is very much victim to Not Even Bothering with the Accent, tell someone about safe sex. With images from the Mario series and sounds effects from Sonic games to assist, as well as Stock Footage from Captain N: The Game Master. It's about as weird as it sounds, and it's hopefully satire and not someone's attempt at making an actual sex-ed video with Mario. Hopefully.
  • Mega Man At McDonalds. Mega Man owes Dr. Light (presumably, because the author neglected to state whom he was talking to) $44,632.82 from buying diapers, so he gets a job at McDonald's. Mega Man is completely incompetent (he even says he is retarded), and later on, he gets slashed by a "tyrant from Resident Evil", and is beaten up by a generic bully. Everyone is out of character (especially Mega Man). The plot is weak, there are typos, and there are also several failed attempts at humor. There is also a blatant inconsistency; In Chapter 2, Mega Man shoots Johnny Sasaki, which means he is not bound by the Three Laws of Robotics, but in Chapter 3, he self-cites the First Law as the reason why he can't harm "Some The Bully".
    • Due to several requests for the story to be updated, the story has just gotten a fifth chapter, featuring such things as Mega Man calling Alphonse Elric (of Fullmetal Alchemist) half-Gundam, Mega Man getting "assraped" by black British police, Elec Man stating that firing employees is against the law, and for some reason "Mega Man" is now being referred to as "Megaman".
  • My Inner Life. Another one kicked off of the So Bad It's Horrible page for being hilariously bad instead of just plain bad. Nominally a fanfic of The Legend of Zelda, it's horribly written with the most blatant self-insertion Sue ever. In a situation similar to Sonichu, the writer is part of what makes it the phenomenon it is, and you must understand her to understand it. She goes out of her way to screech at anyone who might openly dislike the fic in her disclaimers for three pages if you cut-and-paste it into your word processor, and feels that Viewers Are Morons to the point of putting an incredible number of footnotes - almost as long as the "people who don't like my fic are evil" rants. Apparently, readers aren't bright enough to figure out what a "spring festival" is. Most of all, she's clearly dead serious about all the things that many suspect of being parody in My Immortal and the like. This is someone who has less ability to take criticism than Uwe Boll.
    • Also, she's got a strange relationship with the 'return' key. Often, it's hard to tell who's talking because dialogue that really should have been another paragraph will be placed right next to the actions of someone else. But by this point, that's the 'jaywalking' in Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking.
  • Night Blood Ties is an awkward World of Warcraft fanfic starring the characters of a single player and a couple of guildmates. The plot is literally dropped almost entirely in the subtitle of the fic and that's really the least of the story's problems. Characters routinely blend game terms and in-universe terms to the point where characters refer to large-scale military assaults on capitol cities as "routine". The author's main character constant dives into the spotlight, obscuring the characters relevant to the plot. The story is punctuated with the author pitching his Wo W guild and it's arguable the whole thing was an attempt at promotion via tie-in.
    • It also has a character named Manthony. Yes, Manthony.
  • Mass Effect fanfiction has Parallel Realities, which is probably the single silliest Alternate Universe Fic the continuum has given. Admittedly, the premise is interesting, but where the author takes the premise is so silly and incredibly stupid it gets really bad. And yet, there's something unabashed about its silliness and how obvious the Author Tract is that it's hard to hate it.
  • Fan video: "Peach VS Daisy VS Zelda VS Rosalina." (Link here, possibly NSFW.) A little over a minute of blatant Author Appeal that comes across as Fetish Retardant, made funny by the sheer ammount of odd fighting styles and unnecessary cameltoes everywhere. And the winner is a seemingly genderbent Link... who blows up Zelda for some reason. Throw in some semi-unfitting dramatic music and you have yourself one hell of a video that managed to get over four million views.note 
  • Phoenix White: Justifications of Justice! is a Phoenix Wright fanfic involving Phoenix Wright taking over Mr. White's position as the president of Blue Corp, and ending up on trial after trying to resurrect Mia Fey. The concepts are absolutely laughable and ridiculous, but the icing on the cake is the ending where it's revealed that Phoenix Wright is actually a mouse, and the entire Phoenix Wright universe was something he imagined when he was eaten by a cat and went to heaven.
  • The prince and the peasant written by Ranay is a Mega Man In-Name-Only fanfic which pairs her Self-Insert character, Ranay, with Top Man. The story takes place in Medieval times and supposedly all characters (and yes, including the robot masters) are humans. Not to mention Top Man transforms into a CAT BEAST. The fanfic alone contains large amounts of Canon Defilement, Plot Holes, Department of Redundancy Department, and research failure. It's only made more hilarious by Ranay's disregard for proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, and overall use of the English language.
    • "In a kingdom where the laws were absolute, everything was going against these laws was to punish the destruction or death. In the same realm sometimes not even that was wrong was dismissed. But there was something different about this kingdom"
    • "king is a farce"
    • "Top stun all soldiers but forget to Rock"
  • Quake Urgency, which almost kind of read like a rough draft of an aborted Quake I comic-book in the style of the Doom comic.
    "Oh no zombie dogs!" said Quake Marine and he shoot the exploding barrels and they were explode taking the zombie spiders (which exploded)
  • red dead john merston: the return and dislike, a Red Dead Redemption fanfic that manages to portray every character completely wrong, have some of the most terrible dialogue ever seen and a Title Drop that could make John Freeman himself wince. Notably, Man Without A Body did a Dramatic Reading of it, which can be found here.
  • From the Touhou fandom comes Reimu fights the bad guys of adrkness by Talos Angel. It includes (among other things) rampant Rouge Angles of Satin ("Hell Reimu," Reimu fried Marisa sad, "Is god mourning!"), Marisa playing Half-Life 2, Pactouli and Marisa getting "nekked" and having "hot sox" on Reimu's couch, Marisa getting pregnant and having a baby, and a nonsensical plot where Reimu becomes a bad guy. The author admits that she wrote it while drunk, but it's still hilarious either way.
    • There's a dramatic read of it here.
  • Sephirothslave'sShinra High and its sequel, Shinra SOLDIER are probably the best known examples in Final Fantasy VII fandom. Proudly called "novels" by their authoress, they have a total of 170 chapters together, filled with nothing but inaccurate interpretations and wishfulfillment. Among many things, these fanfictions feature a goth Mary Sue and self insert of epic proportions, canon defilement, butchered character personalities, cliche love triangle, wangst, Beige Prose and clear research failure.
  • ''Super Smash Sisters: Damsel to Hero'' is a laughably-convoluted mess of a fanfic. Essentially a combination of a lesbian Rule 34 fic and an Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny, it takes on a strange pretentious aura by beginning its chapters with World War II-related quotes lifted from Call of Duty games. Futhermore, its narrative takes Loads and Loads of Characters Up to 11, with numerous spots in the text, some even intended as dialogue, where a truly huge inventory of characters is read off—and these exhaustive spots JUST KEEP REPEATING. They're all fighting against Nazis and other generic enemies from Call of Duty games.
  • The Supper Smash Bros series is a pretty blatant Super Smash Bros. Troll Fic written by "PrincessAmerica". It is filled with Strawman Politicals, its protagonist is a 13-year-old Heteronormative Crusader Mary Sue sent to the Video Game World by God himself, pre-existing characterizations are outright ignored in favor of making certain characters "gays" and "lesbans" who want to "rap" people. Also, as you may have guessed, the spelling frequently veers into and beyond Rouge Angles of Satin (in fact, both the "Angle for Angel" and "Satin for Satan" examples are used more than once). It's a strong contender for the title of "My Immortal of the Super Smash Bros. fandom". A Wild Badfic Appeared! Commentaries riffed it as its first MST, and it didn't take long for the cast to break down into a mess of laughter, confusion, and/or pure snarkiness.
    • Also of note is the "Political satire" story that PrincessAmerica wrote as herself, The Ethical Adventures of GamerGate. If one takes aside the initial brilliance of her scheme, this fic, while much, much more competently written, is like Mishonh from God content-wise but for the political far-left instead of the far-right. It's extremely Anvilicious, filled with angry, blatant, bitter raging against Strawman Politicals, oversimplification of sensitive political issues, Critical Research Failure, and even more Black and White Morality and Bias Steamroller regarding the far-left. And what probably makes it even more hilarious or cringeworthy, depending on one's tastes, is that this time, she's being completely serious. And keep in mind this woman is engaged and 30 years old.
  • Tales of the Spageti Womna. Nominally a Metroid Crack Fic, it features such gems as as Ridley/Samus pairing, a crossover with YouTube Poop, and Captain Falcon's name being "misspelled" as things like "Caption Fallatio" [sic] and "Capetown Falcone". Almost like YouTube Poop in fanfic form.
  • Ties That Bind: A Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Story is a terrible, poorly written fanfiction about a Marty Stu insert who gets turned into a Pokemon. This series has only one chapter, full of switching tenses, OOC characters, and it reeks of unoriginality.
  • Umineko: Memories of Umineko A bizarre Umineko fanfiction that contains a Mary Sue that is coincidentally named Umineko. Battler's in love with her, Beatrice kills him and he's alive because he's an apparition for some reason. This fic is filled with bad spelling and grammar, Ikea Erotica, a plot that doesn't make sense, an over the top Mary Sue and Villain Sue. It very well may be a troll fic.
  • Wolfenstien comeback, a senseless Troll Fic in which the main character of Wolfenstein (referred to as Dr. Wolfenstein, even though Wolfenstein is the name of the castle) is trying to fight the "Natzees", then ends up in Rapture and is renamed "Bioshock", then he resurfaces and ends up in the world of Fallout for no reason. It has absolutely no story and makes no sense whatsoever, but it's freakin' hilarious.
  • This video, made by seinfeldspitstain, is an obviously fake leak of the fourth Super Smash Bros. game made seemingly in an attempt at this trope. Between the crack newcomer choices, characters stuck in one pose, numerous animation distortion, random music cut at the end before Reggie's introduction, and general lack of making any sense, it does its job well and becomes completely hilarious.
  • This Warcraft fanfiction. The only plausible explanation for the whole thing is that there's someone kidnapping major lore characters and giving them frontal lobotomies.
  • There's Something About Halo is a very well-known and liked video on Newgrounds... the same can't be said for this utter mess that was obviously created to infuriate as much people as possible. It is quite possibly one of the worst videos on Newgrounds, not that it makes it any less hilarious.
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Light of Courage. It started off as a script that has a few spelling errors, oditties like the Triforces talking, and most notably an Original Character who makes referential humor and sticks out of the cast like a sore thumb. It's a plan for a Zelda movie that actually has the line "Man, this guy has more mouth then Julia Roberts." It was remade into three short videos that try at this intentionally and do pretty well at it.

  • A Homestuck fanfic, the creatively titled Homestuck high (sic), has been posted on It's almost reminiscent of My Immortal in some ways. It starts out as a High School A.U. of Homestuck before quickly going into some bizarre plot about Sollux (who is a demon for some reason) trying to impregnate Rose and Jade and use them to give birth to demon spawn. The fan fic is very much In-Name-Only, in both Homestuck and in its title, as it's more of a supernatural story than a high school one. It makes no sense and names of canon characters are used for other people. (Aradia is some sort of genie that helps out John, Eridan is John's transformation in order to duel with the demon Sollux, etc.) It also involves John having a vision after possesed by dark magic from a McDonalds burger as an important plot point. And John had liked Rose ever since she... bit his arm and broke his glasses in the second grade. Probably a Troll Fic, but still hilariously terrible. Now has its own page.
  • Another Homestuck example would be We're just different, the story of a blatant Mary Sue named Titaia who is sent to a "special school" due to a suicide attempt, where she meets unbelievably OOC versions of the trolls—most notably, Sollux and Karkat, as opposed to being Jerks With Hearts Of Gold as they are in canon, are portrayed as merciless bullies. Titaia is tricked (by Tavros, of all people!) into I Ming Sollux and falls for him. The whole thing is so ridiculously OOC and Narmtastic that it becomes utterly hilarious (though it could be triggering to bullying victims nonetheless), and unlike Homestuck high, it seems completely sincere.
  • Learning And Sburbing is infamous on the Homestuck Reddit for its so-bad-it's-good appeal. Some refer to it as the My Immortal of Homestuck.

  • Obscurus Lupa Wins The Olympics, a clear parody where Obscurus Lupa wins the Olympics in the first few sentences, and proceeds to kill an Eldritch Abomination at the center of the universe, punch the Devil, and go on a date with a Parody Sue.
  • The Fanfic Maker generates these kinds of fanfics.
  • Every Badfic You Will Ever Read invokes this by using every bad fanfiction cliche in the book.
  • Beauty and the Faunus is a fanmade remake of Disney's Beauty and the Beast which has Blake as the Beast, Weiss is Belle, Cinder is Gaston, Emerald is Le Fou, and Mercury, Roman and Neo, who speaks for some reason, as the three blondes always lusting over Gaston. Oh yeah, and Ruby Rose, the fourteen year old girl known for being a fun loving girl who likes making friends, takes on the role of Cogsworth. It manages to fail very hard at being an actual remake, instead coming off as uncreative and dull, but hilariously so. The author writes it in script form, plagiarizes the original Beauty and the Beast film to such an extent all the characters pretty much have been given the personalities of other characters, resulting in all of them becoming victims of Character Derailment.
