* The ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series originally got a humble boost from two of its characters being featured in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee'', but later received an even bigger NewbieBoom with the release of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. One of the biggest reasons for this was the ability to marry your PlayerCharacter to one of the many attractive characters in the game, leading to many topics on many websites discussing their "waifu" and which "waifu" is better. It's generally agreed that the [[HotterAndSexier increased amount]] of {{Fanservice}} in the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates succeeding game(s)]] is Nintendo's [[PanderingToTheBase response]] to this trend. And quite tellingly, a remake of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'' with virtually no fanservice released after that didn't sell as well as ''Awakening'' or ''Fates''.

* Featured spots in popular music (i.e. "Song X" by Alice feat. Bob) exploit this. You take a popular or respected artist and put them on a lesser known or just slightly less popular artist's song ([[WolverinePublicity they might be appearing on every song that summer actually]]) either dropping a verse or just doing the hook. The goal here is to advertise the lesser artist to the masses using the star power of the featured artist. What'll happen is people completely ignore the rest of the song (unless they happen to enjoy the other artist or they turn out to be really good) and just listen to the guest portions.

** Puerto Rican artist Luis Fonsi has always been a very popular figure in the Latin music community, but only scored a pop crossover hit with "Despacito." While in some regions he was able to hit the charts on the song's own merits, its success in other regions (particularly the Anglosphere) was mainly because of the remix, which featured Music/JustinBieber singing in Spanish. This has posed a problem for Bieber after the song blew up; since he neither knows Spanish nor can remember the song's lyrics, he can't sing the whole song live. As the song has been inevitably requested heavily at many of his concerts since then, this has lead to some negative reactions from Bieber's fans.

** Puerto Rican artist Luis Fonsi has always been a very popular figure in the Latin music community, with several albums and singles placing high on the U.S. Latin charts, but he was virtually unknown everywhere else, and throughout much of the 2000s, he was largely irrelevant even in his home base. In 2017, he finally scored a massive international hit with the romantic reggaeton-pop song "Despacito." By that summer, it even broke through the Anglosphere, but it wasn't because of him nor featured rapper Daddy Yankee; it was because of the allure of Music/JustinBieber singing in Spanish (which itself was on a remix; the original version didn't have Bieber at all). This has posed a problem for Bieber after the song blew up; since he neither knows Spanish nor can remember the song's lyrics, he can't sing the whole song live.

* ''Film/FlyingDownToRio'': a 1930s RomanticComedy staring Gene Raymond and Dolores del Río. It's watched and (mainly) remembered for having the first dance Creator/FredAstaire and Creator/GingerRogers ever did together.

Added DiffLines:

** Another huge draw to ''Smash Bros'' are the third-party characters. Fans got excited whenever a new Nintendo character is revealed as a fighter, but they were utterly ''ecstatic'' when Franchise/MegaMan was revealed for the fourth installment. This level of excitement was relived again and again when [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]], [[Franchise/PacMan Pac-Man]], [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]], [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Cloud]] and VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} were revealed.

** id Software made the decision with the ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}'' series to move towards competitive multiplayer-only gaming. They eventually abandoned single-player entirely with ''VideoGame/QuakeIIIArena''. When they tried to return with ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} 3'', [[BrokenBase half the fandom]] [[FanDumb hated it]]. ''Doom'' had already implemented a deathmatch mode, but it was also strongly designed with co-op in mind, making deathmatch only an extra. ''Quake'' fans disliked ''Doom 3'' for its focus on singleplayer. ''Doom'' fans disliked ''Doom 3'' for not making it co-op.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' became one of the most downloaded and popular smartphone apps in recent memory despite having an extremely simplified premise (walk around outside an capture Pokemon) and not even having the same kind of battle system that's present in the main games. There's also no hint of a story, and only monsters from the [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue first games]] were even available at the time.

* For the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom, any game that has a non human character will usually get the attention of furry enthusiasts. Ditto for any films that have furry characters.
* ''VideoGame/HarmoKnight'' is probably less known as "that cute [[{{Widget}} widgety]] RhythmGame for the [=3DS=]" and more as "that cute [[{{Widget}} widgety]] RhythmGame for the [=3DS=] that has some ''Pokémon'' music."

** Despite [[Creator/{{Sega}} Sonic Team's]] ''numerous'' attempts at adding alternative [[UnexpectedGameplayChange gameplay]] [[GameplayRoulette features]] to the 3D titles, most ''Sonic'' fans are just in it for the [[PlatformGame Sonic gameplay]].[[note]]That is to get Sonic from point A to point B as fast as possible, while jumping from obstacle to obstacle and smashing some robots along the way.[[/note]] This has become one of the many fractures in the series' notorious BrokenBase, where fans arguing whether Sonic Team's attempts to incorporate variety adds to the game, or if Sonic Team should focus all their effort on the Sonic gameplay alone.
