** ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' made the Disney musical popular for 1950s audiences after the genre had been [[GenreKiller killed off]] by the failures of films like ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' and ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' in the early 1940s due to WorldWarII. It lasted until 1959, when the expensive ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' flopped and killed it off again.

* Titles such as ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' and the TelltaleGames ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' {{retool}} helped restart the popularity of {{Adventure Game}}s in America after roughly a decade of dormancy. Note that this genre was never dead overseas, however; it largely mutated into genres such as {{Visual Novel}}s.

** ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' reintroduced the world to the Disney musical formula in 1989, and 1991's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' made it a viable (and profitable) film-making approach. This unfortunately led to numerous imitators in the 1990s, which (coupled with Disney's refusal to do anything ''but'' musicals throughout the decade) had turned it stale by the end of the decade. The popularity of 2001's ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' essentially killed off the musical formula, which led to Disney not using it for almost ten years.

* The ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' series did the same for [[SlasherMovie slasher movies]] by hanging a massive lampshade over the genre's numerous clichés, while still employing them to scary effect. It took nearly a full decade for the resurgence to die back down, being done in by a massive glut of uninspired, low-quality slashers that either couldn't emulate ''Scream'''s cheeky postmodernism, or simply didn't even try to.

* Live network television musicals entered a dormancy in the middle of TheFifties. Creator/{{NBC}} revived them in 2013, with a ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic'' telecast starring Music/CarrieUnderwood. While it scored high ratings, it took two more years for the medium to re-enter critical favor, when NBC broadcast ''Theatre/TheWiz'' to great acclaim. A few months later, Creator/{{FOX}} opened the door for other networks to stage their own musicals, by airing a warmly-reviewed''Film/{{Grease}}'' production that scored even higher ratings than ''The Wiz'' did.

* NuMetal has seen something of resurgence since around 2012, after dying unceremoniously in 2004. Bands like Music/{{Issues}}, Music/InThisMoment, Music/HollywoodUndead, Of Mice & Men, Music/FromAshesToNew, Emmure, and Saint Asonia prove the genre isn't completely non-viable like it used to be. Throw that in with various deathcore bands like Music/SuicideSilence, Whitechapel, Upon a Burning Body, and Attila taking noticeable influence from the genre. Add that with the fact that bands who previously abandoned the genre returned to their roots, most notably Music/{{Staind}}, Music/{{Slipknot}}, Music/PapaRoach, and Music/LinkinPark. It'll probably never be anywhere near as popular as it once was, but it's something.

** And of course the most recent examples: 2009's ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' managed to make the Disney musical popular again with critics, 2010's ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' made it popular again with families, and 2013's ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' made it popular again with everyone else.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', ''Anime/DragonBallKai''[[note]]Actually a high-definition redux of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', but has been praised for rapidly reducing {{Filler}} and the huge amounts of InactionSequence[[/note]] and ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'' similarly, have relaunched interest in Shonen anime and manga in North America, after what could be considered a DorkAge for said demographic.
