** And the TF fandom has a large percentage of crossover with the MLP fandom; it's only natural, since they're both Creator/{{Hasbro}} properties. Many convention-exclusive comic book covers have the Ponies and the bots interacting (ie. Vinyl Scratch and Soundwave playing music as [=DJs=]). Also helping is a notable fanfic, ''Fanfic/TheElementsOfHarmonyAndTheSaviorOfWorlds'', which not only bring the human characters from 80s ''MLP'' into the modern version, but also brings in [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers the original Transformers cartoon]], plus ''[[Franchise/GIJoe G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero]]'', ''WesternAnimation/JemAndTheHolograms'', and ''WesternAnimation/{{Inhumanoids}}'' too (as they were all prone to CrossThrough in their heyday).

Added DiffLines:

* For whatever the reason, the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' fandom is really into ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}''. The two fandoms share a lot of fans and there are numerous fan-animations to ''Hamilton'' songs.

* There's some overlap of mecha anime (especially SuperRobot) fans and fans of tokusatsu series such as ''Franchise/KamenRider'' or ''Franchise/SuperSentai''. It helps that Super Sentai outright has giant robots. For a while it wasn't too unusual to see tokusatsu threads on [[Website/FourChan /m/]]. Generally, super robot fans will appreciate anything that has that "Super Robot Spirit" even if it doesn't have mecha.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LyricalNanoha'' and ''SenkiZesshouSymphogear'', since both shows feature {{Magical Girl}}s with insane amounts of badassery and firepower... which begs the question: Which fandom [[DefeatMeansFriendship beat the other up for them to become friends]]?

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Series/GameOfThrones'' fandom overlaps pretty significantly with the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' and ''Franchise/StarWars'' fandoms, partly because there are quite a few actors from both franchises in the cast of ''Game of Thrones''. For ''Harry Potter'' fans, the show features Creator/DavidBradley (Argus Filch) as Walder Frey, Creator/NataliaTena (Nymphadora Tonks) as Osha, Creator/MichelleFairley (Hermione Granger's mother) as Catelyn Stark, and Creator/RalphIneson (Amycus Carrow) as Dagmer Cleftjaw. For ''Star Wars'' fans, it features Creator/GwendolineChristie (Captain Phasma) as Brienne of Tarth, Creator/MaxVonSydow (Lor San Tekka) as the Three-Eyed Raven, Creator/JessicaHenwick (Jess Testor) as Nymeria Sand, and Creator/JulianGlover (General Veers) as Grand Maester Pycelle.[[note]] Glover is a threefer: he also has a cameo in ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'' as the voice of Aragog.[[/note]]

* ''Series/ThirtyRock'' and ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', definitely helped by the long lasting friendship between the respective leading ladies, TinaFey and AmyPoehler.

Added DiffLines:

** Shockingly, ''Madoka'' fans are rather amicable with the ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' fandom. This is shocking due to the fact that both anime come from completely different genres, both at first seem to be on opposite ends of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism and both have nearly different artstyles. However, aside from a few [[GreyAndGrayMorality subtle]] [[DeconReconSwitch similarities]], the overlap comes mostly from the main characters Madoka and Simon who both started out as nearly identical characters before developing into similar but different characters at the end.

** Also worth noting that, unlike the [[FandomRivalry notorious infighting]] in the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' Series, most fans of Namco's ''TalesSeries'' tend to be fans of multiple games - or, at the very least, they don't tend to actively hate on installments that aren't their favourites.

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' and ''Webcomic/CheckPlease'' have a very close knit fandom. Both series focus on an ice sport, respectively Icew Skating and Hockey, and [[spoiler:QueerRomance]]. Among other similarities, Yuuri and Jack share an anxiety disorder while Bitty used to be an ice skater.

** Fans of ''VideoGame/InTheGroove'' and '''VideoGame/PumpItUp'' have a chummy relationship with each other, due to both games being panel-stepping games with NintendoHard stamina-wiping charts that ([[SeinfeldIsUnfunny for a while]]) put ''VideoGame/{{DanceDanceRevolution}}'' charts to shame. This fandom alliance eventually led to Andamiro designing the dedicated cabinets for ''In The Groove 2'' and ''ITG'' devs returning the favor with the ''Pump It Up Pro'' spinoff line (as Konami had sued Roxor and [[ScrewedByTheLawyers acquired the rights to]] ''ITG'').
