What's a dumb or silly headcanon you have?

What's a headcanon of yours that doesn't really mean or affect anything, but you kinda want it to happen/be true anyway?

I'll start: Until proven otherwise, I imagine Cream the Rabbit's father to be named Ice the Rabbit, meaning father and daughter's names together are Ice Cream and the whole family together is Vanilla Ice Cream.

I have one that is indeed silly, but pretty long-winded:

Enrico Pucci's master plan consists of him performing an ACE exploit on the world he lives in, not unlike how one would perform an ACE exploit in a video game.

That's why it involves such seemingly inexplicable, yet specific steps such as reciting the 14 phrases and harnessing the souls of exactly 36 "sinners". ACE and other obscure, but potent glitches in video games tend to involve similar oddities that don't make sense to anyone that isn't intimately familiar with technical aspects of the game (and considering that Pucci is knowledgeable enough to monologue about probably obscure facts like fate and the eternal recurrence of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure universe, he's likely to have that kind of familiarity with the inner workings of his universe), and the end result of Pucci's plan succeeding warps the universe on a scale that ACE is sometimes used for.

The 14 phrases in particular bear a notable resemblance to some Pokémon exploits I've seen that rely on manipulating text fields. Neither results in a message with any clear meaning, but the messages nevertheless have very significant effects.

There's another, more reasonable explanation for Pucci's 14 words that I've accepted, but it's nowhere near as outlandish and can't be used as a justification to joke about Pucci being a better gamer than Kakyoin.

I fully subscribe to the headcanon that Jar Jar Binks was originally written as only pretending to be a bumbling idiot and Lucas was going to make him an evil foil for Yoda, but people taking Jar Jar at 100% face value as an "idiot" in Episode 1 caused Lucas to panic that audiences wouldn't see the following movies if Jar Jar stilled played a prominent role and wrote him out of the major plotlines in Episodes 2 and 3.

George Mallory and Sandy Irving didn't die in their attempt to climb Everest in the Pokemon universe because Articuno saved them. Maybe it's stupid, maybe it's silly, but I like thinking of Pokemon's universe as the "good timeline" where nothing that bad has to happen. That isn't to say there isn't tragedy, people die and accidents happen, that's just life, but nothing as cruel as dragging yourself and your friend to both die alone on a mountaintop on a fool's errand ever has to happen.
