* Music/LimpBizkit both made NuMetal mainstream and then killed it years later.
* Music/KillswitchEngage, Music/{{Trivium}}, Atreyu, and Music/AsILayDying popularized {{Metalcore}} (specifically the melodic kind) after NuMetal died out.

* After TheDarkAgeOfAnimation, several television series stand-out as being the inspiration for the wave of high-budget high-quality work that would follow in the nineties: Creator/RalphBakshi's ''NewAdventuresOfMightyMouse'' (a low-rated and controversial show that none-the-less inspired a generation of animators) and the one-two punch of ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' and ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' (which proved that high-budget animation on television could be lucrative).

* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' began the "spectacle fighter" genre, with such other entries as ''Franchise/GodOfWar'', ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'', ''VideoGame/GodHand'', ''VideoGame/MadWorld'', and ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}''. Some reviewers have even questioned the labelling of ''God of War'' as a spectacle fighter (due to its focus on story and atmosphere, the adventure gameplay and the noted lack of any "score" beyond the amount of orbs), and started calling it part of its own genre, joined by ''VideoGame/DantesInferno'', ''VideoGame/HeavenlySword'', ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}'', ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' and ''Franchise/{{Conan|TheBarbarian}}''. Current name for said genre? "[[CatharsisFactor Being God of War]]". Currently, not many other series are good at it. This has led to a [[FlameWar degree of hostility between fans of the two archetypal series]]

* Twenty years before ''VideoGame/EveOnline'', ''VideoGame/{{Elite}}'' on the BBC Micro paved the way for all 3D space simulators, and particularly space trading and open sandbox games. And before ''VideoGame/{{Elite}}'', ''StarRaiders'' on the Atari 800 took the basic ''Trek''-style top-down gameplay from the mainframe era and created the 3D space sim.

* Horror web series and {{ARG}}s were seen sporadically during the TurnOfTheMillennium, but it wasn't until ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'' and ''Blog/JustAnotherFool'' that they really took off. Aside from more directly influencing the direction of Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos, they also inspired the creation of other horror series such as TheFearMythos.
