* Although ''LightNovel/ReZero'' and ''LightNovel/{{Konosuba}}'' were written by close friends and were seen as a satire on ClicheStorm and MartyStu in the already almost absent in the anime and discredited genre of TrappedInAnotherWorld, the commercial success and critical recognition of their adaptations in 2016 led to the return of this genre to anime-menstrim in later years.

** The above revival also ensured that subsequent films would be DarkerAndEdgier teenage- and adult-oriented films rather than the all-ages kind that had been before, such as ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' and ''Film/ManOfSteel''. However, family-marketed superhero films are on the rise again, thanks to 2012's ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'', 2014's ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'' and ''Film/PowerRangers2017''.

* R-rated comic book/superhero movies had declined after ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' underperformed at the box office, as well as studios believing that the R-rating was box office poison compared to the more economically viable PG-13. This sentiment was not helped by the fact that the few that did come out between 2009 and 2015 weren't big hits. But after a little film called ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' proved a critical and commercial success, there have been announcements from 20th Century Fox that their latest ComicBooks/{{Wolverine}} movie will be R-rated, as well as rumours that ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' will have an R-rated director's cut, suggesting that the R-rated comic book/superhero movie may be experiencing a resurgence.

* Sadly averted with ''WesternAnimation/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' and the 2011 ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'' movie, which were both intended to be so for traditional animation. However following the two's completion, Disney higher-ups decided to shut down their 2D department again as the acclaim and box office numbers they earned didn't measure up to the same as their computer animated counterparts.
* The success of ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfKells'' and GKIDS' focus towards distributing such films has lead to the revival of traditional animation [[AudienceShift in the indie and underground market]].

** It saw another decline during the early-to-mid 2010s when many adult cartoons started falling heavily under the AllAdultAnimationIsSouthPark trope, but managed to get relaunched again (albeit at a very slow pace) with the successes of ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'', ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', and even ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty''.
