* Music/MarinaAndTheDiamonds: DiamondsDiamonds[[note]]This is actually the idea behind the name of the act, which despite what it sounds like, does not refer to her backup band (she's a solo act). From Marina herself: "I'm Marina, and you're the Diamonds."[[/note]]

This has really picked up with the introduction of the TheInternet, because fans can interact with each other on {{Fora}} and such. Website/FourChan and its derivatives have [[{{Snowclone}} a common template for such terms]]: Just take the name or premise of the show [[RefugeInAudacity and add "-fag" after it.]] (e.g. [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonicfags]], [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pokefags]], [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Ponyfags]], etc.)

* In a rare genre-wide example, fans (and especially [[TournamentPlay competitive players]]) of FightingGames are collectively known as the [[UsefulNotes/FightingGameCommunity FGC]] (short for Fighting Game Community). The genre-wide label comes from the fact that the scene started in the arcades and players tended to play more than one game.
** ''Franchise/SuperSmashBros'' fans are sometimes called "Smashers", even though they're now trying to integrate into the greater FGC.
