*** Pokémon also manages to appeal to a vast span of age groups. While the main series is intended for kids between the ages of 5-18 (and adults), many spinoffs like ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' that appeal to adults who are able to travel unsupervised and have a disposable income. What franchise can claim to appeal to such diverse groups as the hardcore UsefulNotes/FightingGameCommunity (with ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament'') and 3-5 year olds? (''Pokémon Playhouse'').

** Nintendo also has ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. Boys come for the badass monsters and the battles, girls come for the [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter cute]] monsters and things like Contests, you have [[TournamentPlay the competitive players who breed for IVs and natures, EV train for a long time, and try to build the best possible team]], and then there's the wide variety of adult fans on {{imageboards}} who have come in all generations, for countless reasons. An Ad for the New 3DS XL had two ads, one aimed at boys and one aimed at girls. Both ads featured Pokemon.

* ''Manga/InuXBokuSS''. It's a cast full of [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys pretty boys]] but also has [[CastFullofPrettyGirls plenty of cute girls to go around, too]] (and fanservice of both). It's a shounen, but the romance is done in a shoujo-style, and has managed to attract multiple demographics with its combination of shoujo, shounen, and even seinen staples.

* ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' [[InvokedTrope targets]] the adult women who grew up with the prior incarnations of the ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' franchise along with new viewers, with director Creator/MunehisaSakai pointedly saying [[http://www.themarysue.com/sailor-moon-history-part-1/ they want]] the older fans attention, not just their nostalgia. This targeting extends to some of TheMerch of ''Crystal'', like "tiara rings" with a price point of over a ''hundred dollars.''

* Music/{{Vocaloid}} Originally a software for professional musicians who can't sing or don't have a vocalist, it evolved into a phenomenon anyone, people of all ages and genders, could contribute to, whether through writing songs, drawing art, or even just making covers. Hatsune Miku and Crypton Future Media's Piapro characters deserve special mention for appealing to ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE. When officially licensed products include the likes of scale figures, liquor, makeup, an opera, food, and children's toys, all featuring the same group of characters, you know you've got a [[CashCowFranchise Cash Cow]] on your hands. Hatsune Miku is so popular with adults and children alike, that recent concerts in Japan have separate daytime showings for younger fans.

* Many classic Disney films (e.g. ''Disney/SnowWhite'', ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'', ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'', ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'',...) are appreciated by adults as much as children, although many of the Disney princess movies do get quite a bit of backlash from older audiences. The art work and cinematography in the Disney films made in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s are admired and appreciated by a lot of artists, film fans and critics.

That said, most Disney films remain purely kiddie fodder and don't work on more levels than that. The general public likes them mostly out of fond NostalgiaFilter.

* The different classes and playstyles of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' seem to have an interesting side effect of being more accessible to fans of certain other games. ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' veterans apparently adapt well to the fast, jumpy [[FragileSpeedster Scout]] playstyle, ''{{Quake}}'' arena players will find the [[JackOfAllStats Soldier]] familiar, and ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}'' veterans can take advantage of years of honed skills as the Sniper.
