* IcedEarth and BlindGuardian fans have coexisted since the bands toured Germany together in the early 90s and became fast friends. When Jon Schaffer (of IcedEarth) and Hansi Kursch (of Blindguardian) formed their side project Demons And Wizards and released two albums, which solidified the connection in the eyes of fans.

* BioWare fandom doesn't seem to care which game is better or not. If you find someone writing fanfic for [[Franchise/MassEffect Shepard]], chances are they'll also have a [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Revan]], and maybe a [[BaldursGate Bhaalspawn]] or [[VideoGame/JadeEmpire Spirit Monk]]. [[SacredCow As long as]] nobody criticizes ''BaldursGate'', all is fine.

* The FiveManBand of [[TheEighties 1980s]] cartoons is often said to be composed of ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Voltron}}'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats}}'', ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' and ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero''. And, if you talk to your typical children of the Eighties, you'll see it's for good reason.

* Curiously enough, there seems to be a budding overlap between ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'' and ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''. Which makes sense given that both series include [[AnthropomorphicPersonifications personified beings]] as well as involve WorldWarII and history to some degree.

Added DiffLines:

* There's a ton of overlap between fans of ''Literature/TheRavenCycle'' and ''Literature/AllForTheGame'', and even a fair amount of crossover fan work despite the relative differences of the two series.

* Franchise/KagerouProject and Franchise/EvilliousChronicles fandoms, to the point that most fans are fans of the other one involved. Mainly due to that both are epic RockOpera franchises(Evillious more than Kagerou Project), and use Vocaloid to create CrowningMusicOfAwesome. In Tumblr, Kagerou Project also shares many fans with other Vocaloid song series that have original characters, such as Shuuen no Shiori Project and Mikagura School Suite.
* YukiKajiura and YokoKanno have both this and FandomRivalry, depending upon the specific persons talking.
* Fans of the Music/FooFighters and Music/QueensOfTheStoneAge seem to get along well, since their front-men are involved in several projects together (DaveGrohl has even guested on a few [=QotSA=] albums) along with being poster-boys for modern alternative rockers' habit of [[AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder having too many damn side-projects]].
* Fans of Queens of the Stone Age and Music/NineInchNails are also quite friendly; it helps that the two bands have toured together, and performed together at the 2014 Grammys (with Music/DaveGrohl and [[Music/FleetwoodMac Lindsey Buckingham]], to boot).
* Fans of Music/RedHotChiliPeppers like Music/FooFighters because the bands are long time friends. They toured together in 1999 and did some MTV specials together. RHCP fans who are fans of Dave Navarro's time in the band tend to like JanesAddiction too, especially as Flea was briefly in the band.
* Music/{{Nightwish}} and SonataArctica share a lot of fans, probably because the bands have toured together and the members are friends.

* Music/{{Otep}}, Music/AmandaPalmer and Music/EmilieAutumn. They're apparently all friends IRL. Also, to some extent, CourtneyLove and EmilieAutumn(due to the fact that Emilie was in Courtney's backing band), but that sometimes turns into FandomRivalry instead.

Added DiffLines:

* The Music/WithinTemptation and Music/TarjaTurunen fandoms have been united by marriage ever since the release of "Paradise (What About Us)," a duet between Sharon Den Adel and Tarja, with a music video that pushed the HomoeroticSubtext through the roof. The [[PortmanteauCoupleName Sharja]] ship promptly took off, with corresponding merger of the fans.

* ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'' Haruto/L-elf shippers, overcome with emotion from the TearJerker ending, jumped onto ''Anime/Hamatora'', which began shortly after VVV ended. The "Nice Art" ship was observed to be similar to HaruEru, and thus, the Coffee Ship was born (named after Haruto's comment that he could be like sugar to L-elf's bitter coffee). Sorey/Mikleo of ''VideoGame/TalesOfZestiria'', Inaho/Slaine (OrangeBat) of ''Anime/AldnoahZero'', and others have since been accepted into the coffee brotherhood.

** Likewise, Kuroh/Shiro of ''Anime/{{K}}'', Shion/Nezumi of ''Anime/No6'', and Allen/Kanda of ''Manga/DGrayMan'' are the "Black and White" ships, and are often compared and drawn in crossover fanart together like the Coffee Ships.

* As of the eighth console generation, PC fans and Nintendo fans seem to be on much better terms with each other than with the Microsoft or Sony communities. This stems from a few sources - among other things Wii, 3DS, and WiiU games are usually completely exclusive, which erodes the usual PC "it'll get a port" attitude, and PC gamers tend to already possess a good-sized library of Nintendo games through emulators, which makes it hard to hate them. The eighth generation, though, seems to have solidified this attitude - particularly during E3, when many bemoaned the PS4 and Xbox One as being crappy [=PCs=] in disguise that touted useless gimmicks rather than actual games, many PC gamers strongly respected Nintendo for doing something new and different and focusing purely on the "gaming" aspect.
