** Wolverine isn't the only one to have inspired these characters. ''[[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Watchmen's]]'' Rorschach was a major influence in many ways across the board and helped codify many of the tropes for [[AntiHero AntiHeroes]]. His popularity was certainly a factor in the creation of the NinetiesAntiHero, and every one of those characters owes something to him, be it a willingness to kill, working alone, constantly brooding, being intimidating towards the criminal scum and not cooperating well with police or other heroes. Rorschach did most of it first. Rorschach is himself an UnbuiltTrope of this, ironically.

* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn was so popular [[TheWoobie for]] [[TokenMiniMoe whatever]] [[{{Moe}} reason]] that a few MagicalGirl series following copied her character in particular, such as Michal Amagi in ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch''. Tsubame Sanjou from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' is also explicitly mentioned by WordOfGod as being based on her character.
** Sailor Moon herself was the inspiration for a lot of other magical girl protagonists. She was a NaiveEverygirl as well as a bit of a GenkiGirl like Ichigo from ''Anime/TokyoMewMew'' and most ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' protagonists. Even darker shows like ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' have characters that take influence from Sailor Moon, like Mami, who has blonde twintails, fights for justice and is the one who wants most of all to work as part of a team.
