For some creators, it could be the very first work they created. For others, it comes only after a series of unsuccessful attempts; these early attempts may end up being VindicatedByHistory, though. For many of these, creators are often subject to the curse of ToughActToFollow, as practically every subsequent work may be compared to the breakthrough. More often than not, creators (musicians in particular) often dread the idea of a BlackSheepHit becoming their breakthrough, as what is intended to be a one-off experiment in other areas could result in the publisher forcing them to follow that style from that point forward.

* ''Literature/TheDaVinciCode'' for Creator/DanBrown.
* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' for Creator/StephenieMeyer.
* ''Literature/TortillaFlat'' for Creator/JohnSteinbeck.
* ''Nightfall'' for Creator/IsaacAsimov. As he himself described it "The writing of 'Nightfall' was a watershed in my professional career ... I was suddenly taken seriously and the world of science fiction became aware that I existed. As the years passed, in fact, it became evident that I had written a 'classic'".
* ''Literature/TheHobbit'' for Creator/JRRTolkien. While he is mainly known for its sequel, ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' nowadays, Tolkien wrote it after scoring a hit with the former.
* ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' for Creator/CSLewis. Most of his work is in Christian apologetics, but he's mainly known for ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' today.

* ''Literature/HortonHatchesTheEgg'' for Creator/DrSeuss.
** While ''Horton'' was his most popular book at the time, it was when ''Literature/TheCatInTheHat'' hit the shelves that he became a household name.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' for Creator/SuzanneCollins. Her previous book series, ''The Underland Chronicles'', was not very successful and did not gain retroactive recognition upon "The Hunger Games"' success.
* ''Literature/{{Carrie}}'' for Creator/StephenKing. Although it was released on a low print run, its successful movie adaptation brought newfound attention onto the book and King.
* Miguel de Cervantes was regarded as a very mediocre playwright and author of a mildly successful pastoral romance before he published ''Literature/DonQuixote''. The rest is history.
* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'' for Creator/JKRowling.
* ''{{Literature/The Dresden Files}}'' for Creator/JimButcher.
* ''{{Literature/The Adventures of Tom Sawyer}}'' for Creator/MarkTwain.
* ''Literature/TheHuntForRedOctober'' for Creator/TomClancy.
* ''Literature/TheFaultInOurStars'' for Creator/JohnGreen. He has had many popular books before this, but this was his first massive hit and the book that really brought him into public eye. In 2014 alone, only the ''Literature/{{Divergent}}'' trilogy has been able to rival it in sales.
* ''Literature/AGameOfThrones'' for Creator/GeorgeRRMartin (although it was the TV adaptation, ''Series/GameOfThrones'' that got him mainstream recognition).
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' for Creator/DanAbnett.
