This category includes all serious materials created by fans and clearly labeled or obviously nonofficial, including fansites, fan videos, fanfiction, theories, fan art and maps. In its usage on this site, fanon is broadly inclusive of all fan material (not just spin-off), including reference and community-organizing materials created by fans, which are not humorous or parodic in nature (to differentiate it from parody). Also, this category can be differentiated from hoax, which is fake information created by fans, but which intentionally intends to fool others into believing it is part of official canon.

The template {{fanon}} should be added to the top of these articles, which will automatically force inclusion into this category.
