* ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' has maintained its fandom to a greater extent than its parent ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'', in no little part due to the character's appeal among [[HoYay lesbians]] and [[ActionGirl other women]]. But it is a more downplayed version than other examples as Hercules was still a very popular show during its run, even beating Xena and ''freaking Baywatch'' in the ratings several times and is still considered a quintessential 90s TV show, and if you ask anyone who watched TV back then they are very likely to remember the show. The fact that Hercules was more consistent with its quality level and never suffered the infamous SeasonalRot that Xena did certainly doesn't hurt...

* ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' has maintained its fandom to a far greater extent than its parent ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'', in no little part due to the character's appeal among [[HoYay lesbians]] and [[ActionGirl other women]]. ''Hercules'', meanwhile, faded into relative obscurity quickly after its cancellation and is more rembered for being the show ''Xena'' was spun off of than anything else. Though WebVideo/JonTron ''did'' give it a brief resurrection when he covered its tie-in games...

* Overlaps with GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff, but the much-hated ''Film/{{Godzilla1998}}'' is ''far'' better known than any of the original (or later) ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' movies and is actually highly popular in certain European countries. In fact, most people didn't even realize that there were others until the trailers for ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' came out -- which was in turn [[AmericansHateTingle very, very badly received in these places]].

* Music/BabyMetal started out as a sub-unit of the Japanese idol group Music/SakuraGakuin, with the intent of "mixing heavy metal and idol music". To say the least, BABYMETAL is far, ''far'' more well-known and successful outside of Japan than Sakura Gakuin could ever hope to be. They tour regularly around the world, ''including the United States'' (known for being nigh-impossible for Japanese artists to breakthrough), have enjoyed a memetic level of popularity over the internet, and have quite possibly become the most successful Japanese act internationally in over 50 years. While many know who BABYMETAL is, you would be hard-pressed to find someone outside of Japan who recognizes Sakura Gakuin.

* ''Film/GoldenEye'' was a successful movie in the ''Film/JamesBond'' series. ''[[VideoGame/GoldenEye1997 GoldenEye 007]]'' for the {{Nintendo 64}} is one of the most beloved games of all time, a triumphant {{aver|tedTrope}}sion of TheProblemWithLicensedGames, and one of the games which basically made the FirstPersonShooter genre [[FromClonesToGenre into something other than Doom clones]]. Not to mention proving that the genre could have first-rate console titles, not just inferior ports of PC games. Many players didn't even know the game was based on a film.

* ''Famitsu'', a popular Japanese video gaming magazine that began publication in 1986, actually spun off from a column in ''[=LOGiN=]'', a general computing magazine by the same publisher. ''Famitsu'' is still going strong to this date, publishing over 1,400 issues and counting, whereas ''[=LOGiN=]'' has since ceased circulation, ending its print run in 2006. Enterbrain attempted to relaunch ''[=LOGiN=]'' as a digital only magazine the same year the print version ended, but this incarnation was short-lived, ending its run in 2009.
