** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' ''tried'' to do this - putting in lots of CostumePorn to appeal to girls and lots of [[{{Fanservice}} borderline Actual Porn]] to appeal to guys. Unfortunately, they mostly failed on both counts - the costumes are tied to the plot in a ridiculous way that ruined many a WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief, while the {{Fanservice}} is mostly done through a whole lot of occasionally-incestuous LesYay between the female protagonists. The game is one of the less well-received of the franchise.

* PrincessMaker was originally a BishoujoGame. But the concept of raising a daughter ([[{{Keet}} and Cube]]) heavily appealed to female players. Because of this, PetitePrincessYucie, TheAnimeOfTheGame, was [[ShoujoDemographic Shoujo]] and the fifth game added the option to play as a mother, [[OtomeGame and more love interests for the daughter than ever before]].

** And outside of the first-person-shooter aspect of it, the {{Pixar}}-esque art and humor draws people in to those unaccustomed to normally serious games of this genre. To say nothing of how the all-male cast has created a thriving {{shipping}} community among YaoiFangirls who have never played the game...

* ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' has plenty of appeal all around. There's plenty of action and fantasy with exorcists and demons running around. Plus, there's a bit of a subtle romantic sub-plot with Rin, Yukio, and Shiemi. The cast includes a decent number of Bishounen: [[ScrewDestiny Rin]], [[BadassBookworm Yukio]], Mephisto, Amaimon, and a few others. So far, we have two Bishoujo: [[{{Dojikko}} Shiemi]] and [[{{Tsundere}} Izumo]]. And then there's [[MsFanservice Shura]] of course. No wonder this series is rising in popularity rather quickly...

** ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' owes a large part of its international success to this trope. Kids love it for being colorful and silly, {{moe}} fans love it for the adorable character designs, casual gamers love it for being fun and easy to pick up and play, and hardcore gamers love it for having deceptively complex gameplay that encourages teamwork and strategy.

The prominence of the very much non-stereotypical female Inklings in the advertising doesn't hurt, either.

* A recent ad for a ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' DVD claimed that it was one of the most popular shows among boys ages 6-12 and among men age 18-49. Most people, upon hearing this, simply wondered what the hell was wrong with 13-17-year-olds.

** MaturityIsSeriousBusiness. Kids get a campy, unapologetic superhero show, adults get the same thing ''plus'' the jokes referencing decades of comics. Most teenagers presumably want something angstier and more "grown-up".

* Franchise/{{Digimon}} is the same way. While the original digital pets were intended to be a boyish alternative to VideoGame/{{Tamagotchi}}, ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' clearly appealed to more than just young boys. The aversion of TheSmurfettePrinciple with the main cast (and like Pokemon, [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter the cute mons]]) made it appeal to young girls as well, and the surprisingly well-written story ensured a strong adult and teen following since practically the beginning.

* The Franchise/{{Atelier}} series is known for appealing to fans of {{moe}}, fans of [[OtomeGame otome games]], casual gamers, and RPG enthusiasts all at the same time.
