* The ''[[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fate]]'' series has become this for Type-Moon and to an extent everything in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}}. Originally a PC {{Eroge}}, it's been adapted into an anime and a manga, was ported to the UsefulNotes/{{PS2}} and then to the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP]], received [[VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia a sequel VN]], [[LightNovel/FateZero a prequel light novel]], [[VideoGame/FateExtra an RPG spinoff]], [[Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya a magical girl manga/anime spinoff]], [[VideoGame/FateUnlimitedCodes a fighting game spinoff]], and [[LightNovel/FateApocrypha a scrapped MMORPG spinoff that still survived as a light novel]], [[Anime/FatePrototype and even the rough drafts of the original]] have been released as an extra with the [=DVDs=] of Season 3 of Type-Moon's [[Anime/CarnivalPhantasm comedic crossover series]] featuring the characters of ''[[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} both]]'' of their most successful franchises. With nearly half a dozen anime adaptations of it, and its sequels, prequels, and spin-offs all opening up to box office breaking numbers (or at least the video game version of the box office), combined with the fact that fans are continuing to scream for Creator/{{ufotable}} to readapt the [[FanPreferredCouple Fate]] [[CreatorsFavorite route]] after Creator/StudioDEEN's lackluster version, and the recent success enjoyed by ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' (which just so happens to be the previously-mentioned MMORPG spinoff reimagined as a mobile game), it's obvious that this a franchise that's not going anywhere anytime soon.

** Around the time Hannah Montana was insanely popular, Disney was milking a crapton of money from putting Music/TheJonasBrothers and Music/MileyCyrus on absolutely everything. Music/SelenaGomez and Music/DemiLovato were heading on the same direction before breaking into their solo careers. Now, next in line are Music/BridgitMendler, Creator/BellaThorne, Creator/ZendayaColeman, Music/ChinaAnneMcClain, and Creator/OliviaHolt, and it won't end at all. [[OlderThanTheyThink Before that]], there was Music/HilaryDuff, and waaaay before that, [[TheMickeyMouseClub Annette Funicello]], Tommy Kirk and [[Film/TheParentTrap Hayley Mills]]. The latter three when Walt was still alive. So it's only a continuation of what Walt did in TheFifties and TheSixties to market teenage stars to the baby boom.

In terms of universal sales over the decades, no company holds a candle to Creator/{{Disney}}.
* 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}}...

* Creator/{{Pixar}} is something of a Cash Cow Company, but only if by being a Disney subsidiary, lots of merch come out of it (''Cars 2'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc Monsters University]]'' are their first non-''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' sequel and prequel respectively). It should be said that ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' is even more [[MerchandiseDriven toyetic]] ''[[UpToEleven than their own]] [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory series about toys]]''. This is heavily theorized as to why Cars has gotten [[WesternAnimation/Cars2 a sequel]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Planes}} a spin-off]] and [[WesternAnimation/PlanesFireAndRescue a sequel to the spin-off]] so quickly, to sell the toys.
