* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'': Before its first episode was released, there was not much hype for the anime, especially considering other two anime adaptations which also have a CastFullOfPrettyBoys were out on the same season. The anime not only outdid the other two, it also became an internet juggernaut, constantly trending on Twitter and Tumblr (in the latter network, the anime has steadily kept first place on the trending tags every Wednesday and Thursday, even on the day of the 2016 US Elections, ''and'' [[DemandOverload crashed Tumblr when the final episode came out]]). The anime even attracted the attention of professional ice skaters, and has a large LGBTFanbase, besides the average sports anime fan. The fact that it went to groundbreaking lengths by [[spoiler:making the two male leads an OfficialCouple, portraying a healthy normalized same-sex interracial couple, besides the diversity of nationality and race of the rest of the cast]], a first in mainstream and sports anime, helped the show go neck-to-neck with other extremely popular series like ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' and ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' and surpass all other sports anime that aired or are airing in 2016.

* ''VideoGame/Doom2016'' had all the hallmarks of a bad reboot: a generic "guy with gun" cover, a disppointing multiplayer beta showing off the undoubted ''weakest'' portion of the game, no input from Carmack or Romero, Denuvo DRM on the PC, and no mod support. A [[NotScreenedForCritics lack of advance review copies from Bethesda]] seemed to suggest not even the publisher had any faith in what was by now all but a confirmed flop. Yet, its single-player campaign alone carried the title to win several "Game Of The Year" awards.

* ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' was an R-rated summer blockbuster that was [[SequelGap a revival of a franchise that hadn't seen a movie in three decades]] and was regarded as an aged product restricted to TheEighties. It had also spent ages in DevelopmentHell and had a notoriously TroubledProduction that included losing Creator/MelGibson, plus tension between Creator/TomHardy and fellow star Creator/CharlizeTheron and director, Creator/GeorgeMiller. The fact that it was described as a film-long chase sequence did not raise hopes. On release, it became a box office success, a cultural sensation, and one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2015, praised for its incredible action and near peerless storytelling. The praise and enthusiasm from critics and the public lasted all the way to the end of the year, [[OutOfTheGhetto becoming surprisingly one of the biggest award season contenders]], eventually getting ten Oscar nominations including unheard of nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. It ended up winning six, nearly sweeping the technical categories -- even outclassing '''''Film/TheForceAwakens!'''''

* While many fans were surprised to see it made and interested in it, there was a lot of skepticism about ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'''s chances of success. It was a new IP in an era not known to be kind to them, was a genre Nintendo had rarely worked on before, had a very different look and feel to it than most shooters, was on a platform without much of a shooter audience, did not support voice chat, and the release platform was severely underperforming. Less than a year later and over 4 million units later...
