** Getting into death metal? It's probably through one of the following: Music/CannibalCorpse, Music/{{Death}}, Music/MorbidAngel, Music/{{Carcass}}, Music/{{Behemoth}}, or Music/TheBlackDahliaMurder. If you started with thrash, the first four (plus Music/{{Obituary}}, Music/{{Deicide}}, and Music/{{Entombed}}) are more likely, whereas people who started with metalcore or deathcore are more likely to cite the latter two (as well as Music/{{Suffocation}} and Music/DyingFetus).

* Odds are that if you ask someone who got into ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' during the Heisei era what their first show was, if it wasn't the one that was currently airing at the time they got into the franchise, they'll tell you it was ''Series/UltramanTiga'' - partially due to the fact that it's one of the few series that has been shown on US Television, thanks to a GagDub courtesy of Creator/FourKidsEntertainment.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' was a gateway to science fiction for many people when it first came out. It was always a gateway to movie making. How many young kids saw what George did and grabbed an old 8mm Belle and Howell camera in response?

Added DiffLines:

* Music/LudwigVanBeethoven's most popular pieces such as "Für Elise," the "Moonlight Sonata," "Ode to Joy" and the Fifth Symphony have convinced many a listener to explore more ClassicalMusic. It helps that Beethoven is perhaps the best-known composer in popular culture ([[Film/{{Beethoven}} movies about Saint Bernards]] notwithstanding), so he's a logical starting place.

* ''Theatre/TheNutcracker'' is universally recognized as "Baby's First Ballet", as it's almost always the first ballet any young child sees.

* ''Theatre/TheNutcracker'' is universally recognized as "Baby's First Ballet", as it's almost always the first ballet any young child sees. It's also festive holiday fare that makes it attractive to non-theater-goers. Honorable mention in this category also goes to ''Theatre/SwanLake''.

* Inverted with ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'', where the series instead is a gateway to get anime nerds into football.

** This seems to be much of the purpose behind the "British Blues" scene and much of the BritishInvasion rock in general -- to expose rock fans to blues, folk, jazz and early rock influences (African-American especially) by basically incorporating it into a more contemporary rock or rock-friendly electric blues style.

** Due to Jellyfish's tendency to wear their myriad influences on their sleeves, it can equally be a GatewaySeries for BaroquePop, [[TheSixties '60's]] or [[TheSeventies 70's]] pop, AlternativeRock, BritishInvasion music, vintage [[IdolSinger bubblegum pop]], even obscure influences like Music/HenryMancini or Music/HugoMontenegro. Certain [[SingerSongwriter singer-songwriters]] like Music/HarryNilsson or Music/RandyNewman seemed to be strong influences on the band as well.
