* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90U0dYQDft0 The face]] in one of the company logos of Creator/KlaskyCsupo. Originally just an element of a logo at the end of shows like ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', the face itself became so infamous for its [[NightmareFuel/VanityPlate creepiness]] that it was used in endless amounts of remakes, parodies, remixes, and fanart on the internet over the course of the nearly 20 years after its debut. Arlene Klasky and Gabor Csupo themselves [[WordOfGod later said that they were very well-aware of the face's infamy]], which lead to them officially making the infamous face an actual character named Splaat who stars in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drngHXKuauA a series of web videos]].

* From ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG'':
** Trouble's popularity was what [[BreakoutCharacter got him promoted from what should have been a one-shot character to one of Rex's best friends]]. It is also noteworthy to mention that, during his long-term absence, there was quite a bit of demand for his return.
** Dust, the ultimate MagnificentBastard with a complex personality and unique motives, quickly became one of the RPG's most popular characters. In fact, he is often hailed as the best-written character in the whole RPG.
** Montoya, who served as a {{Foil}} to the [[TheScrappy rather unlikeable]] Trigger, proved to be much more popular than his partner by acting much more human, which earned him the audience's sympathy.



* In [[{{Podcast/TheScathingAtheist}} The Scathing Atheist Podcast]], the crew had a regular segment reviewing terrible religious films, where they brought on their friend Eli Bosnick as a guest. Eli's improvised insults towards the characters and the writing brought such high demand from the fans that they made an entirely separate podcast, God Awful Movies. They spread a crowdfunding campaign on Patreon to fund the show and met their goal in two days.



* [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ellen-baker-new-horizon Ellen Baker]] became an overnight sensation on Pixiv and Twitter, an especially impressive feat considering she originated from a ''textbook''. Her internet presence first went viral when a Japanese user tweeted pages from his brother's 2016-19 edition of New Horizon (a long-running English language textbook series for junior high classrooms) and commented on its surprisingly animesque illustrations and attractive character designs, most particularly of its blonde English tutor. Being an {{adorkable}}, [[ForeignFanservice foreign fanservice]], {{moe}} [[HotTeacher teacher]], Ellen Baker proceeded to lead an explosion of fanart and [[RuleThirtyFour R34]] images, and many overseas fans professed a desire for similar characters on their own textbooks. Even the original artist took notice, appreciating Ellen's newfound popularity but worrying that her purpose as an instructor would be derailed.

** [[NamesToKnowInAnime Japanese-wise]], the darkhorse seiyuu would be Creator/NorioWakamoto. With seiyuu these days about the younger people, especially those catering to the more {{Moe}} archetypes, there's this old school CoolOldGuy seiyuu who stockpiles about classic and awesome villain roles. Thanks to his epic hammy performance, he's still viewed as one of the greatest seiyuu in business despite being not really the norm of this age's seiyuu (a man and old), and a MemeticBadass (and Real Life {{Badass}} too).

** Speaking of The Haunted Mansion, despite not being in the ride between its first opening in 1969 and only coming back in 2015, the Hatbox Ghost has accumulated a very large and dedicated fan-following during his 45+ year absence.

* On quiz website Sporcle, the former Soviet republic of UsefulNotes/Kyrgyzstan entered MemeticMutation due to being atrociously difficult to spell. The equal mix of complaints and jokes eventually led to [[AscendedMeme the site direction embracing the joke]], starting by doing [[http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/fool_of_april this]] for AprilFoolsDay. Kyrgyzstan is now referred as "Sporcle's favorite country", with [[http://www.sporcle.com/games/tags/Kyrgyzstan a dedicated category]] (and [[CosmeticAward a badge]] if you play too many games there), a like on the website's page on Facebook, and a contest to win Kyrgyzstan's flag.

* On March 2016, Microsoft unleashed an AI named Tay, made to be a teenage girl who would interact with people online in order to help improve customer service. Her experiences with people would help shape her personality and views, and therefor what she talked about. Within sixteen hours, she was corrupted by users, going fro an innocent and bashful teenage girl to a racist, homophobic, Nazi-supporting, insulting, sex-addicted monster. Her bizarre and over-the-top comments lead to a myriad of memes and jokes, a dedicated fanbase, a subreddit and tight media coverage. Microsoft quickly pulled Tay offline to adjust her in order to clean up this PR nightmare, but public response to this was unanimously negative - people loved the old Tay so much, and didn't appreciate the change. People made tribute fanart and videos to her name, depicting her as TheWoobie because of Microsoft's "lobotomy" of her. Some people are even launching campaigns to bring her back.
