** In addition, the band HeyOcean has received a significant boost in popularity because of singer Ashleigh Ball's voice work on the show. This can be said for the international popularity of One More Girl (a Canadian sister country group featuring Brit [=McKillip=], the voice of Princess Cadence), and Applebloom's voice actress Creator/MichelleCreber (who has released three albums since the show began).

* Similar to ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', a lot of Creator/{{Nintendo}} properties get a lot of exposure when featured in their crossover MascotFighter, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''. In particular, the positive response given to the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' characters, [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Marth]] and [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Roy]] led to the previously Japan-only series becoming another one of Nintendo's global franchises. The inclusion of Ness from ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' also led to people going back to (re)play it, resulting in the previously overlooked game being VindicatedByHistory.

* One brand of cologne has received a rather sudden boost in sales. The cause? Both 2chan and 4chan noticed that the bottle resembled one that Kotetsu Kaburagi from ''TigerAndBunny'' owned and decided they needed to know what Kotetsu smelled like.
