The Adventurous Adventures of One Direction is, to put it simply, an animated One Direction fanfic, created by Mark Parsons. In it, One Direction is a band of superheroes out to save the world's pussycats from the evil Lord Faptaguise. It can be watched here. It had two sequels, aptly named The Adventurous Adventures of One Direction 2 and The Adventurous Adventures of One Direction 3.
''The Adventurous Adventures of One Direction contains examples of:
- Big "NO!": Exaggerated with Harry, who gives one that apparently lasts for several minutes when he realizes Lord Faptaguise has kidnapped his cat.
- Brought to You by the Letter "S": In their superhero costumes, the members of 1D have the letters of their first names on their chests. Gets a bit confusing with Louis and Liam, who both have Ls on their chests.
- Buffy Speak: Lampshaded by Harry:Harry: [Tac-O's] even make the milk taste like tacos!
Liam: That's even disgusting-er.
Harry That's not even a word!
- Chekhov's Gag:
- Louis hitting Harry in the balls whenever he makes an Incredibly Lame Pun allows Harry to hit the high note needed to activate the Pussy Magnet.
- Niall keeps making fun of Zayn's hair, comparing it to things like a ski slope. When they need a ramp to skateboard out of the garbage pit, guess what they use?
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: After helping Niall out of the garbage pit, Zayn isn't seen again, even in the ending. Come the sequel, and it turns out he just stayed there for nine months.
- Color-Coded Characters: Each of the band members has a monochromatic outfit in their superhero forms. Harry is orange, Louis is red, Niall is blue, Liam is purple, and Zayn is yellow.

- Groin Attack: Louis gives these to Harry as punishment for his bad puns.

- Power-Up Food: For Harry, tacos, complete with a Popeye-esque transformation.
- Punny Name:
- Squick: In-Universe, Tac-O's, a meat, cheese, and lettuce flavored cereal served in a tortilla bowl that also makes the milk taste like tacos. Only Harry likes them, while the other members of One Direction find them disgusting.
- Temporal Theme Naming: Played for laughs with Lord Faptaguise's Femme Fatale, May, who used the fake name April.Lord Faptaguise: Well done, May.
