* Film/{{Tron}} fans? Chances are, they're also working with ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' (''very'' similar premises and computer humor). ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' fans also gravitate towards ''StarWarsRebels'' (similar themes and DoomedByCanon), or the {{Voltron}} reboot.

** To a lesser extent in mobile-gaming, Sony Xperia users who played mobile games based on Nintendo franchises like ''VideoGame/{{Miitomo}}'' and ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' have better relationships with Nintendo and Sony, due to Sony Xperia devices running on Android systems and Nintendo do have Android (and iOS) games based on their franchises.
* Fans of ''VideoGame/YookaLaylee'' have also come to be friendly towards fans of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' due to their gameplay centering around exploration of various sandbox worlds, as once envisioned in the fifth generation of gaming, a la ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' and ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie''. For added points, both games are slated for release on the UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch.

* ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'' and ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}''. Even their creators are friends!
** [[CompletelyMissingThePoint But Ryan North]] [[AcceptableTargets is a computational linguist!]]
** You can also count [[Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures Andrew Hussie]] and [[{{Wondermark}} David Malki!]] as creator friends with friendly fanbases.
*** Speaking of Hussie, the ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'' and ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' fandoms get along rather well, considering that the official forums of the former are a section of the fora of the latter. This is probably because, again, the creators are very good friends, and because of a [[{{Bathos}} very]] [[BlackHumor similar]] [[ShoutOut style]] [[SophisticatedAsHell of]] [[AntiHumor humour]].

* A peculiar case concerns [=GameStop=] customers, who tend to also be fans of the burger chain Smashburger due to [[https://imgur.com/HzWnbMM their respective logos looking suspiciously similar]].

* In more recent years, the FandomRivalry between fans of Franchise/{{Pokemon}} and Franchise/{{Digimon}} has mostly subsided, and the fandoms have become more and more friendly with each other. It's likely [[FriendlyRivalry BECAUSE of the former rivalry that the two have grown close]].

** Back in perhaps 2005 or 6, there was a major crash on a Creator/WilliamGibson message board, so the members of that board were essentially invited to hang out on the official Gaiman forum until the site issues were resolved. They did, and the two fandoms got along so well that some members wound up participating on both boards for years.

* Know someone who plays ''TetrisTheGrandMaster''? Chances are they also play {{Bemani}} games and/or {{shmup}}s. Conversely, Bemani fans and shmup fans view TGM as a new challenge that's worth giving a shot, instead of just crazy insane invisible antics.

* The ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' and ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' fandoms have a very low percentage of people who hate the other series; a lot of Dark Souls fans are also fans of the Monster Hunter games and vice versa, perhaps due to similar gameplay styles. Most forum threads comparing the two are met with comments about how they love and play games from both series. Besides, ''VideoGame/DragonsDogma'' is often seen as a hybrid between the two franchises and is well liked by the both fandoms.

* The Nippon Ichi and Atlus fanbases.
** Similarly the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}}'' fandoms, despite both games being entirely different genres, seem to get along with each other. It doesn't help to note the fact both games have their good mix of quirky silliness and dramatic moments and both games are known to have a strong use of {{Moe}}.

** With the Kickstarter for ''VideoGame/YookaLaylee'', ''Mighty No. 9'' fans have started to form a bond with ''Yooka-Laylee'' fans as well.
** Also joining this "Kickstarter original" group are the ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'' fanbase and the ''VideoGame/BloodstainedRitualOfTheNight'' fanbase.

* Similar to the ''Star Wars'' and ''Star Trek'' example mentioned above, ''Franchise/MassEffect'' and ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' fans really get along with each other, possibly because their stories go in completely different but equally valid directions from similar bases. Crossovers between the series make up some of the most popular fanfictions on the net. ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' seems to be joining this group, turning it into a PowerTrio of sci-fi game fandoms.

* While they do have a minor FandomRivalry, most ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' fans are also ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' and/or ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' fans. This is thanks to the fact that the creator of Steven Universe, Rebecca Sugar, is a former ''Adventure Time'' writer who was known for writing fan favorite episodes like "[[TearJerker Simon and Marcy]]," and they both originally aired on Cartoon Network on Monday nights within the same hour (although ''Steven Universe'' has moved to Wednesdays).
