Multifandom archives are archives that generally host the works of multiple authors in multiple unrelated fandoms. The term is often applied to fanfiction archives, but there are also archives of art and other types of fanworks or fanac that host material relating to multiple fandoms.

Comparison of Multifandom Fanfiction Archives

Many of these archives also allow non-fanfiction content, often art but also meta, original fiction, or other writing. Numbers listed are approximate. See the footnotes for the origin and age of the data.

For some of these archives, the "focus" is the only type of material/fandom archived; for others, it's just the most common. The explicit content, underage, and RPF columns refer to whether this material is allowed in the archives, not whether it's present. Underage covers everything with characters under 18 or under the age of consent depicted in sexual situations, including chan, shota, and similar designations; the terminology varies by archive.
