** Better yet, do this with characters you do like. Some fans have filled their created rosters with nothing but every version of Wrestling/JohnCena, or cribbed the roster from the UFC, or made their own ''VideoGame/StreetFighter X ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' or ''Series/MarvelVsCapcom'' games. It's basically ''Series/TheSims'' except it's closer to The Young and the Wrestlers than...[[Series/TheYoungAndTheRestless well...]]

* The vast majority of Creator/DisneyChannel {{Kid Com}}s enjoy a TestosteroneBrigade PeripheryDemographic of males who just like [[FanService looking at]] the female leads & supporting characters (Creator/BrendaSong and Music/AshleyTisdale in ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'', Music/MileyCyrus and Music/EmilyOsment in ''Series/HannahMontana'', Creator/BellaThorne, Creator/ZendayaColeman, and Caroline Sunshine in ''Series/ShakeItUp'', Music/BridgitMendler in ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'', Creator/LauraMarano as the latter half of ''Series/AustinAndAlly'', Music/ChinaAnneMcClain, Creator/SierraMcCormick and Creator/StefanieScott in ''Series/ANTFarm'', Creator/DebbyRyan and Creator/PeytonRList in ''Series/{{Jessie}}'', Dove Cameron as ''Series/LivAndMaddie'', Creator/OliviaHolt in ''Series/KickinIt'', Holt and Creator/PiperCurda in ''Series/IDidntDoIt'', Kelli Berglund in ''Series/LabRats'', Paris Berelc in ''Series/MightyMed'', Oana Gregory and Landry Bender in ''Series/CrashAndBernstein'', Creator/RowanBlanchard and Sabrina Carpenter in ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'', Zendaya and Veronica Dunne in ''Series/KCUndercover'', Bender and Lauren Taylor in ''Series/BestFriendsWhenever'', Sophie Reynolds in ''Series/GamersGuideToPrettyMuchEverything'', etc.).
* PeripheryDemographic and TestosteroneBrigade also hold true for Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}: Creator/MirandaCosgrove and Creator/JennetteMcCurdy in ''Series/{{iCarly}}'', VictoriaJustice and Music/ArianaGrande in ''Series/{{Victorious}}'', and so on. In the SpinOff ''Series/SamAndCat'', one reason for lower ratings and lower performance in the male demographic is that Ariana Grande's character Cat (originally from ''Victorious'') in particular has been dressing down to better match the intended tweenage girl target audience, as opposed to dressing like a "slutty" teenage wannabe Hollywood starlet in the original ''Victorious''.

Simply, people are paying their own money for their own entertainment. Any other stuff they add may be only seen as a minor distraction from their true goal of enjoyment. On the other hand, those other things added can actually [[ComeForTheXStayForTheY add to the enjoyment of their one true goal]], whether it be comedy relief in a usually dark film series or any new quirks in gameplay. Often, these things become cool only by association: "Look, it's a clip from that movie/show where this ''awesome'' thing happened!" or "Look! It's that actor/actress who was in that ''sweet'' movie one time!"

* A lot of fans watch ''Anime/MaiHime'' for Shizuru and Natsuki (be them [[EnsembleDarkhorse individually]] or [[FanPreferredCouple together]]). But it's usually [[ComeForTheXStayForTheY "watched"]]. Not so much with ''Anime/MaiOtome'' though.

* Many people come to ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' [[ComeForTheXStayForTheY to check out its gritty nature and badass protagonist Guts]], but have since stuck around despite lengthy release periods (and more traumatizing events) for the intriguing character line up and the mythos of the world; in later volumes, much more attention has been focused on these elements rather than the grim-dark themes and a sizeable portion of the fanbase is actually grateful for the relieving shift in atmosphere. However, another portion of the fanbase wants the series to get back to what it's ''really'' about: [[LudicrousGibs senseless violence]], GratuitousRape, and [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy darkness darkness everywhere.]]

* The first album by Music/ProcolHarum includes a song titled "Salad Days (Are Here Again)", and the track listing on the back cover says that this song is "From The Film 'Separation'". ''Separation'' is an obscure [[LeFilmArtistique art film]] which remained unavailable for a long time after its initial (limited) theatrical run in 1968, leaving Procol Harum fans wondering what it was like. In 2009, the film was released on video for the first time, and thus many of those watching it are Just Here For Procol Harum (though maybe ComeForTheXStayForTheY is in effect too).

** ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' has a good chunk of fans that only watched for the return of Tommy Oliver, aka the original Green Ranger. For some it turns into ComeForTheXStayForTheY, but there are more than a few that still only watch for Tommy.

* ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' and other spin-offs:
** A good number of fans only play the series for the mini-games.
** Plenty of people only bother to play any of these spin-offs (''VideoGame/MarioKart'', the multitude the ''Mario'' sports titles and the aforementioned ''VideoGame/MarioParty'') Because they can play as Waluigi, Princess Daisy and Toadette ([[BaseBreakingCharacter these 3 characters have both fanatical fandoms and fanatical hatedoms]] and their fans really want to see them in games other than spin-off ''Mario'' titles).
* While fans have divided opinions over which ''Mario Party'' has the best boards or features, many will agree that each installment has great mini-games. Some fans play the games just for the mini-games. Nintendo took notice and made a ''Mario Party'' title where it's only about the mini-games and there's 100 of them from the past 10 games.
