Ok, I found that something from Crush Crush has made it's way into reality - That being Mio's Twitch channel. In the game, Ayano mentions that Mio has a Twitch channel, and lo and behold, Mio's Twitch Channel. So, if this is an acceptable case of Defictionalization, then would this get added?

What about the You Tube channel, Jammy Cooks? He makes real-life versions of foods and drinks from video games.

[One Piece] Ace and Whitebeard's graves were built in Japan. Does it count as defictionalization?

Any particular reason why all the Harry Potter stuff needs to be kept under film? The note says "for the sake of avoiding repetition", but moving the entire set of Harry Potter stuff to literature would also avoid repetition.

With the launch of Oblivion Bethesda included a life-sized model coin of the game's currency.

Removed the below entry. The rings are merely replicas of the comic book rings. They do not do what their fictional counterparts do (Even the Flash ring in comic stores an entire spandex costume compressed by a special chemical treatment.)This would be like calling a plastic toy He Man sword a Defictionalization of He Man's sword from the TV series. The Lord of the Rings swords, which have been replicated using legitimate sword materials, wouldn't count as this as, like the above cases, they lack most of the essential properties of actually being the item they're a replica of.

  • Green Lantern - Green Lantern rings and Flash rings can be found in cereal boxes at comic book conventions. Unfortunately, they're cheap plastic and have no apparent super powers. Yet...

This bit from Metalocalypse seems more of a personal story.

  • When we saw them in Madison, AYWKUBTTOD was the opening band; Their stylings were out of place on the level of Hendrix opening for the Monkees (because, you see, indie rock and death metal — comedic or not — does not mix very well).

This is a tricky one, but the language is not widely used and Newstime is more a straight fictional piece than a a source of real-world news. References to fictional characters in real-life publications seems a bit minor. Jadarite is more a coincience between a real and fictional chemical makeup — it's white, powdery and harmless to superheros.

  • Superman: Anyone for defictionalized Kryptonian?
    • DC Comics also published a "memorial issue" of Newstime (the DC universe equivalent of Time and Newsweek) dedicated to Superman's death, complete with fake ads, letter column, and other related articles, all related to the DCU somehow.
      • The 1992 World Almanac included an obituary for Clark Kent, even noting events from the comic and his identity as Superman. This was amongst the Almanac's actual obituary section, amongst real people who had died.
    • I can do you one better. Kryptonite.
      • White, powdery, non-radioactive Kryptonite...

I think this is just a spoof band that happened to have several guys from the cast of a show?

  • Bad News (featuring most of The Young Ones team) pre-dated Spinal Tap by about six months but without as much success, ended two short films, several albums, a tour and at least one talk-show appearance.

Probably not a defictionalised book proper, more just trading on the name.

  • The Necronomicon is available from Amazon here).
  • Technically, this is just called the Necronomicon, and is in reality just a collection of Lovecraft's stories. (This Necronomicon on the other hand...)
    • Most defictionalized versions of the Necronomicon bear little to no relation to the book described in Lovecraft's stories. The "Simon version" is an egregious example of this, as it uses only the name, combined with a few random bits of Sumerian mythology and a whole lot of stuff he made up out of whole cloth.

This is probably not an example, more a fun bit of metafiction in a spin-off.

This is probably not an example — needs to be an existing real-world product.

  • In the Anime and Manga series Dennou Coil, the world is popularized by specialized glasses that allow Yasako and Fumie to see into Cyberspace, as well as control certain aspects of it. Now look at this (equally fictional) video of Augmented Reality [1].
    • The Nintendo 3 DS and iPhone 4 are set to become the first consumer applications of this.

As far as I can see this quote does not apply: this is not a product found in-world in Half-Life that has been made into a real product.

ATUHOR'S NOSE: Uncycylopedia (which is online encyclopidia like wikiped) said I was writing story called Quarter-Life: Halfway to Destruction and dontn't know where come but I decide to write anyway.
