* ''Detective Comics'' #347 had a rare after-story "what if" segment that showed what ''would'' have happened to {{ComicBook/Robin}} if the villain of the story had actually killed {{Franchise/Batman}}. (This was in 1966. Who says Bats only got DarkerAndEdgier ''after'' the [[Series/Batman1966 Adam West]] years?)

* Fan fiction for Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium:
** ''FanFic/TheGamesOfTheGods'', Book One, has a bonus chapter. Chapter 80 "The Extra Goodies" contains deleted and unused scenes.
** ''FanFic/HomeWithTheFairies'' by I-Mushi has two sets of bonuses. The drabbles in the [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9748362/1/HwtF-Drabble-Collection "HwtF Drabble Collection"]] ship Maddie with different characters, and include "A Study in Frustration: Erynion." Apart from that, I-Mushi has [[http://i-mushi.tumblr.com/tagged/hwtf tumblr posts tagged "hwtf."]]
** Peppery Mints, author of ''FanFic/HowToSurviveInMiddleEarthWhenYoureATeenagedGirl'', also wrote [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10185221/1/Doodles-In-The-Margin "Doodles In The Margin."]] These contain alternate events that fit not into the main story. The main story is already an AlternateUniverseFic, so these doodles are alternate universes of an alternate universe.
** ''FanFic/{{Lothiriel}}'' by [=JunoMagic=] has [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2647262/1/Drabbles-about-Loth%C3%ADriel-and-Drabbles-of-Rohan "Drabbles about Lothíriel and Drabbles of Rohan."]]
* ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8222340/1/Chasing-the-Moon Chasing the Moon,]]'' its [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6902577/1/Phases-of-the-Moon prequel]] and its [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10332014/1/The-Trials-of-Kurosaki-Karin companion fic]] have omakes at the end of almost every chapter.
* In chapter two of ''FanFic/CelestiaVSCleverbot'' is the original conversation with Cleverbot in the format direct from the "Thoughts so far" button.
* ''FanFic/FateRevelationOnline'' ends each chapter with a short skit styled after the Tiger Dojo in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', usually following a character's non-canon death. The first few were directly based off of the Tiger Dojo (when Shirou died) while later examples include Imouto Dojo (for Kirito) and Kotomine's Church for Bad Guys ([[ShapedLikeItself for bad guys]]). While most are meant to give tell funny anecdotes and give some insight into character motivation, some do provide meaningful backstory.

* The ''Manga/OnePiece'' SelfInsertFic ''FanFic/ThisBites'' has several, written by both the Cross-Brain and their fans.
** One in particular is a non-canon {{Crossover}} [[spoiler:between this fic and the shipgirls of ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'', when the latter's base plays host to a certain goat-horned pirate shipgirl.]]
* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': A handful of omake chapters, some written by Anon e Mouse Jr. and featuring his [[AuthorAvatar self-insert character]], who has the powers (and then some) of [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Kamen Rider Skull]] and was created for an as-yet unwritten story. They are non-canon to this story, but he writes them for fun anyway.
