Wrong Genre Savvy / Fan Fic

  • The Pokémon Fan Fic Latias' Journey features an RPG Episode where at one point they get quizzed by a skeleton, and this happens:
    Skeleton: WHAT IS THE WIND SPEED OF A SWELLOW?
    Phanphy: Wait! I saw this on TV once! I know the answer! Is it a Hoennese Swellow or an Orrean Swellow?
    Skeleton: HOENNESE.
    Phanphy: No, you were supposed to say you didn't know, then fall off a cliff.
    Skeleton: YOU WATCH TOO MUCH TV.
  • We Just Want to Help You by Jeanne Hedge is a fic where a random fan of Bubblegum Crisis finds herself in the Tokyo of 2035, hurries over to offer to help Ms. Stingray... and gets tranqed and sent to the loony bin when it turns out she's not actually in Bubblegum Crisis, but a relatively close (but significantly divergent) Alternate Dimension.
  • This Code Lyoko fanfic features Jeremie using fairy tale logic to determine how his relationship with Aelita should progress.
    "We call her 'Princess' all the time. Think hard, Ulrich. What story do you know of had the fair princess's hand won by an intellectual?... I can't win her, Ulrich. I can help her, get her away from XANA and Lyoko by finding the anti-virus but I can't have her heart. It's not the way the fairy tale goes.
