* ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1968'' invented the idea of [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies]] as cannibalistic, undead monsters that [[TheVirus recruit their victims into their ranks]]. In doing so, it also popularized the concept of the ZombieApocalypse, even if it wasn't the first work to use it (that would be Creator/RichardMatheson's ''Literature/IAmLegend'', which used vampires, and indeed served as inspiration for George Romero).

* ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' took cues from ''VideoGame/{{Wizardry}}'' and ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' but specifically simplified those games for a wider audience. The [[VideoGame/DragonQuestI result]] defined the JRPG genre, and created most of the major tropes used therein.

* For one of the sub genres of the VarietyShow, the Korean variety show ''Muhan Dojeon'' (or Infinite Challenge), which started airing on MBC in [[LongRunner 2005 and is still going strong]], is one for the "Real Variety Show" subgenre, where in addition to the base tropes of a VarietyShow, the show adds in unscripted stunts, organised challenges and an all star cast from all walks of celebrity life, from traditional comedians, to singers, to even well known actors. This show arguably popularised this type of Variety, and set the base work for the wildly successful Korean show Series/RunningMan.
