The Great Kenzarelli Multiverse is a subgenre of Joe/Nicky fanworks featuring crossover pairings of characters played by Marwan Kenzari and Luca Marinelli (the actors that portray Joe and Nicky, respectfully).

On Ao3, these works can be found in the canon tag, Marwan Kenzari/Luca Marinelli Character Combinations, but many writers choose to use the freeform The Great Kenzarelli Multiverse tag instead. (The freeform tag is synned to the canon tag, which means all works tagged with The Great Kenzarelli Multiverse are in the canon tag). Currently, the use of tags is inconsistent and controversial, so not all works can be under the canon tag. Works on Tumblr are often tagged with The Great Kenzarelli Multiverse.



As of August 9, 2022, these pairings are the most popular:

  • Majid Zamari/Fabio Cannizzaro (52)
  • Daan (Hartenstraat)/Paolo Guerrisi (47)
  • Malik (The Mummy (2017))/Guido Caselli (27)
  • Pierre Michel/Roberta (l'Ultimo Terreste) (27)
  • Majid Zamari/Mickey Miranda (22)
