This article, Timeline of Events (Fanon Canon), is part of this site's Fanon Canon project. Use of this page's contents is determined by the author of this page unless otherwise specified.

This is a chronicle of the fights, battles and events included within the timeline of Bleach: Extinction. As this is a mutual project it incorporates fanon events previously agreed upon by the fanon canon participants. However, participants may add events at their own discretion, so long as it does not contradict canon and does not interfere with what has already been established in the FC.

Note: The timeline is given in years before the present, ie, years before the current era of the FC. To tabulate dates, simply calculate the years before 2001 (the start of Bleach canon) and add twelve years. (3 for the span of canon, 9 for the fanon canon).
