Used by followers of various media of entertainment, such as television shows, movies, books, etc. to note a particular belief which has not been used in the universe of whatever program or story they follow, but seems to make sense to that particular individual, and as such is adopted as a sort of "personal canon". Headcanon may be upgraded to canon if it is incorporated into the program or story's universe.

For example, Dick Grayson would have force Damian to watch Walt Disney movies (Because Bruce would never do that with Damian) with him and despite the irritation of Damian he secretly enjoys them. :smt026

There several headcannons about Tim and women.

But Tim and women, it was so strange how they wrote him later on.

Early in his carear Tim as a teenage guy who really liked girls. He had no l[problem ooking at pretty females and did flirt with them. He did flirt with Cassandra Cain, Cassie Sandmark at one point, Stephanie Brown obivously, his first offical 'girlfriend' Ariana.

He had like no issues with kissing or according to Stephanie Brown, full blown making out. But he never cross the line of being a pig or perverted...thats old Superboy with telekinesis powers role.

But for some reason writers decided change that...


DC would never allow Robin to be gay. Too much stigma from the Wertham days.

It's also known as "Fanon":

"Fanon, also known as generally accepted 'Headcanons' among fanfic writers and Roleplay crowds, is the set of theories based on that material which, while they generally seem to be the 'obvious' or 'only' interpretation of canonical fact, are not actually part of the canon. Occasionally, the explanation seems good enough to just be 'common sense.'"
