Hitler continued laughing, then finally said 'Goku! You came here expecting to find a madman, but instead, you found a GOD!' Hitler had become a Super Saiyan.

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.

  • 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 suicide 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.


    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?
  • The TCG exclusive Kozmo archetype of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards places characters from The Wizard of Oz and makes the psychic cyborgs in a setting resembling that of Star Wars. For example, Kozmo Farmgirl is a cross between Anakin Skywalker and Dorothy Gale, while Kozmo Wickedwitch combines the Wicked Witch of the West and Darth Maul.

    Web Comics 
  • 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."

    Western Animation 
  • Duck Dodgers provides several examples:
    • The episode where Duck Dodgers joined the Green Lantern Corps. Yes, they used the actual DC characters. He went to Oa and fought Sinestro and everything.
    • On that basis, the episode where he ate poorly made Fugu, hallucinated he was Samurai Quack and fought Aku/Happy Cat, who was actually his father.
    • There is also episode where Dave Mustaine from Megadeth saves the day. Keep in mind that his early albums are certainly not for young children.
  • Both Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law are entirely premised as Crack Fic.
  • Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel combines Phineas and Ferb with characters from the Marvel Universe.
  • The Critic had a Show Within a Show version, where Sherman reviews the new Clint Eastwood movie, Beverly Hills Robo Canine Cop and a Half 2. In the clip shown, Eastwood (as his Dirty Harry character) gets a new partner, who promptly explodes. He then gets five more, a lady cop, a cute little kid, an ugly old dog, a dinosaur, and a leprechaun (the last of which explodes). In the next clip, the unlikely group meets another cop with a worse group: a pig, an alien, a pair of Siamese twins, a sofa, and a second-rate mime. (Who explodes.) Like most of the films Sherman reviews, this one looks pretty bad.

  • 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.
  • Spejbl and Hurvinek...vs. Dracula. (Probably sounds more cracked than it actually is.)

    Specific Authors 

    Inter-Media Crossovers 

    Anime & Manga 
  • The DysFUNctional Pirates, which is a series of One Piece crack one-shots.
  • For fans of Katekyō 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 features Shinji being trained by a sorcerer of the Warhammer 40,000 world. Gradually he, Asuka and Rei gain powers, finally becoming the New Chaos Gods together with Misato. Oh, and Asuka can transform into a super-powerful, axe-wielding, red-skinned, bronze-haired, horned demon. And she and Shinji get together before Shinji gets married to her, Rei and Misato.
  • 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).
  • Yo-Kai Watch: Go Sword Explosion!! counts as this.
  • 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.
  • The Death Note fic A Charmed Life a Ryuk/Light romance.
    Ryuk: It's... you know... lubricant—from the Shinigami world.
  • Upset with how Even The Purest Light Creates A Shadow ended, Again A Fanfic Critic and his friend, RegretfullyYours, took it upon themselves to make their own ending that wrapped up as many loose ends as they can, all while incorporating their theories that they made during their riffing, such as Megidramon's appearance being hailed like he is Satan rising from hell, Shatora being revealed to be the spirit of drugs trying to get Davis to do drugs, and ending it with the Digimon and their Destined singing the Whoville Christmas anthem.
  • Doing It Right This Time has been described as this by several commentators on the forum threads. Much to the consternation of its author, at that. Although Word of God reluctantly admits that several scenes are only there because of Rule of Funny, Author Appeal or simply because It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time.
  • Sailor Santa Christmas with Friends is a story where Ranma is approached by a reindeer to help Santa out in delivering presents to dangerous martial arts infected areas by transforming into Sailor Santa, a Magical Girl who delivers presents and kills Youma with funny Christmassy attacks.
  • Whoops, Didn't Mean To Do That is a Cardcaptor Sakura fanfic where Meilin becomes the Cardcaptor – however, Sakura has already finished HER tenure as the Cardcaptor, and the cards in question are extremely stupid ones Clow Reed made by mistake or because he was drunk (the Bounce, the Magic Girl, the Late, the Butterfly, the Scream, etc.) Also, Meilin's Seal Cane is topped with a rubber duck; she gets her own Syoran and Meilin clones; and there's countless Lampshading of several elements of the original plot.
  • On a Boarding School Juliet thread, several 4channers wrote a collective greentext in which Turkish, a character who knows absolutely nothing about the main plot, has really been orchestrating it for decades. His mission statement?
    I will get my revenge by having my daughter fuck my waifu's son and cuck the nation's royal princess out [sic] the lesbian affair she wishes she could have
  • I Can't Be a Magical Girl!! You, a Magical Girl, Say is an example of crack being treated seriously. It revolves around Izuku breaking the rules of his universe and becoming a magical girl.
  • let's do it like they do on the infomercial channel is a Haikyuu!! crack fanfiction where Kageyama is wearing a boob window sweater, Hinata is very much into it, there are weird euphemisms for sex and did I mention Hinata also has twenty fingers for some reason? He does. Later parts of the series also depict middle school!Kuroo as a neko-obsessed weaboo furry with Tsukishima being both strangely attracted and revolted, and Bokuto and Kuroo trying to be gangsters and failing horribly. There is also a fourth part with characters from My Hero Academia at a presidential election.

    Films — Animation 
  • In this fanfic, the cast of The Land Before Time encounter Soviet naval spetsnaz. Surprisingly, it occasionally verges on W.A.F.F..
  • Black and White. "You didn't know that Pongo was a were-hound, did you? Did you?!"
  • Delivered From Frollo has Frollo bearing Chernabog's demon spawn after falling into Hell through the fiery pit.
  • Mad Hotness Dog features Elsa of Frozen having sex with Napoleon I of France, before their lovemaking is rudely interrupted by Otto Von Bismarck, King Jadwiga of Poland, and King Louis XIV of France.
  • Several fan videos of The Incredibles made with toys.
    • In this one, the family gets a strange disease which leads to all of them coughing and sneezing, Mr. Incredible and Dash losing their powers, Elastigirl not being able to control hers, Violet forgetting how to make force fields or turn visible after turning invisible, all of them except Violet being sleepy, and Jack-Jack being stuck as a demon. It's also a crossover with Tangled, Doc McStuffins, and Zootopia and features a villain who's inexplicably gained powers named Romeo.
    • In this one, Edna Mode eats too many gummy lollies, which results in her accidentally eating toys and getting a disease called "Jelly Belly" which means her stomach turns into a giant jello and needs to be dug around in for her to go back to normal. Also, Dash is nowhere to be seen.
    • In this one, Violet and Dash eat too much candy, which makes candy start growing on them and it turns Dash into a giant gummy bear.
    • In these ones, Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl break all their bones... although they can still talk and considering their powers (superhuman strength and superhuman flexibility respectively), it's pretty unlikely.
    • In this one, Elastigirl eats a giant gummy bear, a narwhal, a fish, and a person alive and someone has to rescue them out of her belly.

    Films — Live-Action 


    Live-Action TV 
  • 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."
  • 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 realizing 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.
  • Joy Ride has Starsky undergoing a "Freaky Friday" Flip...with his car.
  • The Senpai: A Seinfeld Visual Novel puts the four main characters in a Japanese high school. George is trying to get his senpai (who has a crush on Jerry) to notice him, Elaine doesn't realize she's a Tsundere, and Kramer finds a Humongous Mecha in an abandoned warehouse. To make things more surreal, it emulates the show's writing style perfectly.
  • The Night Neelix Went Crazy and Killed Everyone is a Star Trek: Voyager fanfiction where Neelix eats too much leola root, which turns him into a giant leola root and makes him crazy and he either kills or indirectly causes the death of everybody. Also, the Doctor has somehow turned into an incontinent yak.
    • Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has an entire Alternate Universe set in our time called Deep Dish Nine, and everyone works at a pizza shop instead of a space station, they all live in the same apartment building, planets are now cities, and despite everyone being human, they're still called things like "Quark", "Worf", and "Odo".

    Pro Wrestling 

  • Destroy the Godmodder is one of the best examples of this trope. The entire game is one giant crossover, with many of the things summoned from parallel universes becoming far more powerful and, well, "cracky" the longer they stick around. If they stay as NPCs, they eventually may become unrecognizable from their canon version. It basically takes what The LEGO Movie did to the Lego franchise and multiplies it to the Nth degree. Examples:
    • Pit the Angel:
      • Canon: A flightless angel that fights to save the world from evil monsters from Greek mythology.
      • Destroy the Godmodder: The wingless Minecraft avatar of said angel (this is actually Pit playing Minecraft, not just a Nintendo fanboy playing Minecraft), who likes to summon lots of robotic enemies from the Megaman franchise, wields lots of guns as well as more traditional weaponry, and possesses a gender-bending SCP bracelet-thing

    Tabletop Games 
  • Tales of the Emperasque starts with the God-Emperor of Mankind stealing a body of a Tarrasque ("I possessed a daemon"), then traveling all around the galaxy and delivering a righteous whoopass to anything that needs one. And it incorporates a whole lot of /tg/ canon, including notorious Love Can Bloom, kleptomaniac Blood Ravens and Pretty Marines.
  • In these stories everyone from Warhammer 40,000 converts to Christianity and lives happily ever after.
  • Early wargamer Tony Bath once played a wargame campaign versus his friend Donald Featherstone which involved Middle Earth being invaded by the Union Army. This was apparently meant to appeal to both Bath (who was an ancient/medieval wargamer who dabbled in the earliest fantasy wargames) and Donald Featherstone (who was a horse and musket era wargamer).

    Video Games 
  • 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.
  • This is about Tetris blocks... farting. And not much else.
  • 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 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 Finnegans 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 parody 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 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 want to restore your sanity with Shakespearean literature. According to the author, it was intentional.
  • This is... something. Probably. It's in the Ivy the Kiwi? section, but has pretty much nothing to do with the game, instead starring a dinosaur who eventually becomes a 'male stripper'.
  • Soul Embrace, a Soul Series fic in which everything Edge has done- all his killing and attempts to cause the apocalypse- was to force his ex-girlfriend to talk to him again.
  • Pong fanfiction is this by default. Yes, it exists.
  • To The Next Level is about Sonic and a genderbent Shadow having the most innocent ways possible.
  • A Ragnarok Online fanfiction called Vore me Gertie is a extremely bizarre fanfiction about Gertie Wi from the biolabs waking up on the morning and then a party occurs. It's much weider than that.
  • REV UP THOSE ANTIDEPRESSANTS is a DBX between the truck from Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, interpreted as so impossibly fast that his opponent appears to never move, and Christopher Robin from Winnie the Pooh's Home Run Derby, interpreted as a malevolent baseball god able to warp reality with his baseball pitching and has been toying with Pooh all this time. It's ridiculously awesome with the premise alone and somehow finds ways to escalate from there.
  • Carol's Really Gay Story (feat. War Lilac). Coming from a massive in-joke between the authors of Memories of a Freedom Lost and Freedom Dies With Me, the story starts with Carol Tea romping around the Treehouse loudly screaming that she's gay, and it somehow gets crazier from there. It features no less than three Lilacs running around (one from Freedom Dies With Me itself), references to the No-Zone from Archie Sonic, constant fourth-wall breaking and just plain OOC insanity. The opening line puts it best;
    WARNING: This story contains foul language, sex jokes, several varieties of distasteful humor, toxic relationships, heterosexuals, interdimensional travel, really sharp knives, and other things that will probably offend somebody. Also it’s just generally the worst thing ever. Reader discretion is advised.
  • Sonics List, a crossover between Sonic and.... Schindler's List. This is a thing that exists.
  • There's more than a few fics where the lawyer Phoenix Wright is an actual phoenix.
  • Ecstasy in Cosmogone is (mostly) about Angus MacGyver - erm, I mean the Innocent Spy - accidentally wandering a hundred years back in time and ending up in the Gaslamp Fantasy world of Sunless Sea. Double points for nothing beside remains, in which MacGyver feeds himself, piece by piece, into the Eldritch Abomination known as Mr. Eaten. Yes. That MacGyver. Seeking that Mr. Eaten's name.

  • Digimon Resumido is an alternative interpretation for Digimon Adventure.
  • 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.
