* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' has made it a long way for what many used to consider a niche DarkFantasy {{seinen}} franchise, with a manga that's been ongoing since 1990 with 38+ volumes and finally hit 40 million volumes in circulation in February 2016. Adaptations include ''Anime/Berserk1997'' by Creator/OLMIncorporated; two videogame adaptations by Yuke's, ''VideoGame/SwordOfTheBerserkGutsRage'' (Dreamcast, 1999) and ''VideoGame/BerserkMillenniumFalconHenSeimaSenkiNoSho'' ([=PS2=], 2004); The ''Anime/BerserkTheGoldenAgeArc'' theatrical anime film trilogy (2012-2013) by Creator/Studio4C, which produced [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/guts_and_griffith_selling_fast_food.jpg this]] amusing fast food cross-promotion; ''Anime/Berserk2016'', a TV anime by GEMBA and Millepensee which picks up after the movies; and the videogame ''VideoGame/BerserkAndTheBandOfTheHawk'' (Fall 2016) developed by Omega Force. Fans are invited to buy $200 limited edition figurines of Guts, Griffith, or Casca, and all the animated versions are available in deluxe BluRay box sets. Japanese fans can also buy ''Berserk'' keychains, pillows, and even underwear!

* ''Franchise/LoveLive''. Started off modestly enough in 2010 but has since expanded into various other media such as two anime seasons, books, manga, music videos, music albums, and even concerts. It wasn't until the mobile game of it was released in Japan that the series really took off; the first bluray volume of the second season of the anime sold over ''90,000 copies'' in its first week, the highest of any anime yet. Along with ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'', it's practically THE big thing among Japanese otaku right now.

** WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse alone has raked in millions of dollars ever since his creation in 1928. Major characters like DonaldDuck and {{Goofy}} have been best sellers for decades, while Disney's [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon animated canon]] is one of the most unique (over 50 movies, almost all of which have nothing to do with each other) and consistently profitable franchises in Hollywood history. Apart from the animated cartoons Disney has also produced a stream of family friendly live-action films and TV series, including several theme parks devoted entirely to Disney's characters. Today the Disney brand extends to other major brands as well, including {{Creator/Pixar}}, Franchise/TheMuppets, ''Franchise/StarWars'', {{Creator/ABC}}, Creator/MarvelComics, ''Franchise/IndianaJones'', {{Creator/ESPN}}...

* Pillow Pets... there are dozens and dozens of them, they come in different sizes, and now you can find licensed pillow-pet characters (such as Yoshi). They even make ones that can shine glow-in-the-dark stars on your ceiling. You can even find them in GROCERY STORES. And it's hard to run into someone (especially a kid) who does NOT know their commercials' annoying theme song...
