- Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers: By far most of the well-known fics are either gen or het, het is almost always interspecies (that's what the show teases anyway, and you don't get away with pairing a main character with an original character, so you don't have much of a choice), and most het fics put the pairing into the background to the point of Bob even if it's true love which it almost always is; Action/Adventure; Case fic, but usually way beyond the show, almost always putting Chip's "no case too big" to the test; arcs or even entire verses if the writer in question is prolific enough and/or triggers follow-ups by other fans; classic in that they ignore the Boom! comics, not to mention all more recent animated material (most of them are too old to take any of this into account anyway); OCs are mostly either victims/the Rangers' clients or the villain themselves, and the villain is almost always an animal OC; Lahwhinie returns; if one of the Rangers dies, it's usually Chip; Tom Clancy-esque technology porn; and not exactly few crossovers
