* 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.

* A lot of people found out who ThePixies are through ''Film/FightClub''
* By the early 2000s, RickJames had largely become disgraced thanks to drug addictions and a 3-year prison sentence. Then Creator/DaveChappelle spoofed his life on ''Series/ChappellesShow'', and Rick's popularity reached new heights.

* Creator/SelenaGomez, Music/TheJonasBrothers, Creator/ChinaAnneMcClain, and Creator/SierraMcCormick got their start as guest stars on ''HannahMontana'', while Creator/BellaThorne, BridgitMendler, Adam Irigoyen from ''ShakeItUp'' and [[Literature/AvalonHigh Gregg]] [[Series/FakingIt Sulkin]] first appeared as guests on ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' (Mendler and Sulkin played prominent roles in the show, so their careers were helped more than those of Thorne and Irigoyen).

** One "Spotlight" column in the early [[TheEighties 1980s]] (a column written by Shrapnel Records founder Mike Varney, profliling burgeoning unsigned guitar talent) in a single monthly issue featured [[Music/MrBig Paul Gilbert]] and YngwieMalmsteen.

Added DiffLines:

* PoppyZBrite's ''Literature/LostSouls'' created a vogue for drinking chartreuse amongst various goth groups in the mid-Nineties.


Added DiffLines:

* WilWheaton's ''WebVideo/{{Tabletop}}'' series has had this effect on several of the games it's featured, and it's now not uncommon to enter your Friendly Local Gaming Store and see 'as seen on Tabletop' signs next to games. The most notable example of this is ''BetrayalAtHouseOnTheHill'', which was out of print at the time it was featured on the series. Increased demand saw it get a shiny new edition it probably wouldn't have had otherwise.

* {{Toonami}}, an action-animation block on Creator/CartoonNetwork (though it has since moved to Creator/AdultSwim), has provided these for some of its shows. In fact, you could say that it provided one for anime itself in the US, since while japanese animation was already known back then, it wasn't nearly as popular as it is now before Toonami came around.
** ''DragonBallZ'' and ''Anime/SailorMoon'' were initially unknown in America, as they both failed to garner success during their initial syndicated runs and were only partially dubbed by Creator/TheOceanGroup and Creator/DICEntertainment, respectively. Then they were picked up by Cartoon Network for airing on Toonami, where they managed to net the block some major ratings. This increase in popularity also resulted in both shows getting dubbed further.

* Also inverted to a lesser extent by the Music/SilversunPickups. Though not exactly in mainstream pop-culture (they're still signed to indy label Dangerbird Reccords), they ''were'' a surprise hit with their first studio albuum, and they appeared on DavidLetterman's late night show ''because'' they had just showed up on the radar.
