Hitler continued laughing, then finally said 'Goku! You came here expecting to find a madman, but instead, it was me, a GOD!' Hitler had become a super saiyan.

Anonymous Poster #1: Woody is stuck inseide 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 yet one of the hardest to write well. Crack Fics are not merely humorous; in fact, in many cases, it doesn't have to be humorous. While it's 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, a 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 Shipping, but totally irrational and turned up a notch beyond that, as in Crack Pairing.

A Crack Fic is often considered the result of a challenge, either from someone besides the author or from the author themselves; "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, Weird Crossover, Bizarro Fiction, The Abridged Series. Often overlaps with Audience-Alienating Premise and Rule 34.

  • One episode oc Newsradio has the cast in period costume as passengers on the Titanic without explanation.
    • Another featured the cast waking up centuries later from a cryogenic sleep.
  • "Can't Smeg Won't Smeg" was the first feature of Red Dwarf Night, the Red Dwarf Tenth Anniversary Celebration. It's basically 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 Tenuously Connected Flavor Text is almost universally from Twilight's supposed folder of fics. As they're tenuously connected, 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 takes characters from The Wizard of Oz, makes them psychic cyborgs and places them in a setting resembling that of Star Wars. For example, Kozmo Farmgirl is a cross between Luke Skywalker and Dorothy Gale, while Kozmo Wickedwitch combines the Wicked Witch of the West and Darth Maul.

    Video Games 

  • 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 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 a Crack Fic.
  • Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel has 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.)

Fan Work Examples:

    Specific Authors 

    Inter-Media Crossovers 

    Anime & Manga 
  • The DysFUNctional Pirates, which is a series of One Piece crack one-shots.
  • For fans of Reborn! (2004), 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 Hetalia: Axis Powers 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 down the 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 than 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 Hetalia: Axis Powers 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.

    Live-Action TV 
  • The X-Files fandom gives us the following:
  • Counts of Blood is 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.
  • NUMB3RS:
    • \m/^2 by Captain_Starcat features the Eppes Brothers in a band.
  • 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 (except Quark, Rom, and Leeta who still work at a bar, and Garak and Dukat who simply visit the pizza shop), 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".
  • Four Seasons is a Supernatural fic in which Cas is the owner of a landscaping business who becomes very confused when asked by the Trump campaign team if they can hold a press conference at his store, and Dean owns the adult shop next door and watches the ensuing fireworks with him. The crackiest part may be the fact that this is based on true events. True events that just happened to collide with Destiel finally being canonized. Yes, we're serious. The author even lampshades it:
    "Is this technically a crackfic? It feels like it should be, but like this actually happened in real life, and I don't know how to handle it besides writing fic."

    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 where the Union Army invaded Middle Earth. 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).

  • 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.

    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 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 Westen-esque 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.

  • Let's Die! is about the Invader Zim gang attempting to commit suicide in various ways...and weirdness/hilarity ensues.
  • Everything by fanfiction author malkshake. Everything.
  • Stop Bugging Me, Dib-Pig, an Invader Zim fanfic. There is no plot. It's just...crazy, insane, non-sensical, every sense of the word imaginable.
  • Of Ponies, Parrots and Other Things is this, due to how the story is written: The first chapter is relatively normal. However, chapter 1 got pasted into the Bonsai Story Generator along with some unrelated text, and chapter 2 is based on some of the sentences that were generated using that text (with some of the generated sentences being used word-for-word). Subsequent chapters are written using a similar method. Since the generator mostly produces nonsense, the story quickly devolves into parrot staring contests, surreal dreams and Rainbow Dash turning into a bird.
    There was a submarine in the sky. Spreading great bat wings, it flapped a mighty flap... or at least, as mighty as a submarine could manage. Since submarines don't normally fly, it was still pretty impressive.
  • Furassment: Adrien becomes mastermind of the cat mafia. If you just thought, "But there isn't a cat mafia in canon", you would be entirely correct.
  • Thomas Abridged is Exactly What It Says on the Tin - Thomas & Friends given The Abridged Series treatment.
  • I Scream, You Scream, we all Scream for Starscream - five versions of Starscream (G1, IDW, Armada, Animated and Prime) get trapped in a room with one who represents every single way they are portrayed in Fan Fiction. Naturally, Hilarity Ensues.
  • Dib in Wonderland is basically Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with Invader Zim characters.
  • Martha Reeks is a fanfic of Martha Speaks where Martha is all gloomy and sometimes talks like a robot, Helen really is on drugs, and Mariella doesn't like Helen anymore.
  • Princess Celestia Is In Your Bed is a fanfiction about a guy named Steve who finds Celestia from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic in his bed, but she's quite Out of Character, takes away all the bedsheets, and is obsessed with strawberry fanta.
  • Like "Dib In Wonderland" above, The Wizard of Ak transplants the Zim cast into a work of children's classic literature, in this case The Wizard of Oz.
  • The Simpsons:
    • In Must Love Ned Flanders, a "real-world" woman named Naomi Sanders gets transported to the Simpsons universe, stalks Ned, and eventually gets together with him but not before a trip to Alaska and an encounter with a zombie Maude.
    • In Ned Flanders Takes the Biggest Black Pill of All, Ned Flanders runs around naked and talking incomprehensibly, leading to him being hospitalised and making out with "you"... or something along those lines.
    • In Seymour Snaps, Principal Skinner has a bad day... which leads to him slugging Bart in the eye. The Simpsons and many others show up at his house to complain about the violence, so he beats them and Agnes up. They go to a hotel, where Skinner's sister Sally lives, to see if she can bring him back to normal. Maggie, who can inexplicably speak now, has an idea of making Skinner suck on a pacifier and everyone goes a long with it. Then, more insanity ensues, especially when a stalker shows up.
  • Lincoln's Bathroom Break is a fanfic of The Loud House that involves Lincoln going all the way to the mall from his yard just to go to the bathroom. There, he meets Bart and Marge Simpson and some guy named Rocko who have a nonsensical argument.
  • The Miraculous Ladybug fanfic Event of the Millenium takes a Fandom-Specific Plot (Marinette invites someone to a party, they turn down her invite, and they come to regret it upon seeing how many celebrities she knows) and takes it to extremes — the party is set up like a carnival complete with rides (stated to be Adrien and Chloé's doing), and the guests range from popular singers to superheroes to the entire legendary Pokémon pantheon to the author herself (who freely admits that she's only there to hit on Luka and/or Ben).
