There are fads from users.
- Main article: Character nicknaming
This fad was since started on February 29, 2016 by Jashin Empress at the GoAnimate 2 Wiki (now known as FanonLand Wiki) where the names of the user-created OCs (as well as some anime characters and other non-OCs) gave the similar names or closely exact names from an anime character, a video game character, non-fictional Japanese people, and/or even the name of a Japanese-based companies. This also led Igor and other users give nicknames to the OCs. The first OC was given a nickname was Midori Mario (created by LinuxFan399), which led to give her a similar name as Midori Mario (a character from Super Mario Bros.).
