While Canon is limited to that which has actually been described in the source, Fanon is the set of theories based on that material.

Fanon fills in perceived contradictions or gaps in the canon, answer (or ask) questions that the source material either will not or cannot address, or simply hasn't addressed before.

In addition to arising from a point of vagueness in the canon, Fanon can come into existence as a fact gained from a popular but non-canonical idea. Popular subjects of Fanon include character backstories, full names of characters with no name given, what characters actually do for a living, and Shipping — a whole other world of its own.
