* AscendedFanboy: During the fan campaign following the AprilFoolsDay revival, NerdCore rapper Richie Branson released a single called "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlbbLFgiVQk Bring Back Toonami]]", which quickly got the attention of Creator/AdultSwim, who put the song on a few bumpers prior to the official Toonami return announcement. On the night of the return of Toonami, Richie released another single, ''"[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29MIkOROI0M&feature=fvwrel #ToonamisBackBitches]]"'', which was used during the intro to Toonami for the first few nights. Branson has since said that more songs from him are to come for Toonami in the future. ** And of course, the makers of Toonami are ascended anime fans, having created ''the'' gateway to the fandom and even getting to have a hand in series like ''Anime/TheBigO'' and ''Anime/IGPXImmortalGrandPrix''.

* AudienceShift[=/=]GrowingWithTheAudience: The original Toonami aired during the daytime with programs aimed at kids and pre-teens, then when it was moved to Saturdays and its fan base grew up, its programs aged with it. Finally, when Toonami was {{uncanceled}}, not surprisingly it was placed in the Creator/AdultSwim {{watershed}} hours as the fanbase that demanded its return were now young adults or older.
