So much that the manga-only season ''Magical Wars Lyrical Nanoha Force'' drops the MagicalGirl from the title, albeit that's maybe because Nanoha [[ChristmasCake is now past 25 years old]]. On the other hand, the other manga-only season, ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid'', starts taking a more MagicalGirl-like direction by concentrating on Nanoha's 10-year old, budding MagicalGirlWarrior daughter, complete with OlderAlterEgo and a Bunny Plushie device.

* Music/AliceInChains is a metal band that came out in the right time and place to also appeal to {{Grunge}} fans with their murky sound. Fans of AlternativeRock also get to enjoy their unique take on vocal harmonies and their surprisingly sizable collection of acoustic arrangements. All the while the metalheads get to enjoy their heavy riffs and dark subject matter.
* Similarly to Alice In Chains, Music/BreakingBenjamin appeal to both alternative fans and metal fans at the same time, making them a bit of a [[GatewaySeries gateway]] between the two.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Godbound}}'' is designed with a ruleset compatible with classic ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (broadly speaking, any edition before AD&D2E) due to its creator's established experience (and market) within the "Old School Renaissance" player community. However, he also built the game to target fans of ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', with its love of over-the-top action with divine heroes in a ruined world that's there to be saved. In designing the game for a broader market, Kevin Crawford took care to ensure that the more controversial aspects of classic D&D (such as the HonestRollsCharacter, which has led to a BrokenBase in the RPG community for ''decades'') were optional or ignored. What he ended up with was a simple and generally elegant system that could bring a lot of different player groups around a table.

** Nintendo also has ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. Boys mostly come for the badass monsters, girls mostly come for the [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter cute]] monsters, 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' appealed to a broad audience over the course of its run by having a complex, interesting, and dark MythArc, lots of action, multifaceted male and female characters (as well as fanservice for both), and plenty of humor. Unfortunately, Creator/PaulDini revealed that Cartoon Network didn't care if college-aged women and girls were a huge part of the audience since they believed that they wouldn't buy the toys and pulled the plug on the series after the second season. The series never had a strong toyline in the first place, which definitely hurt it in the long run. Dini also said this led to the cancellation of the ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''TowerPrep''.

* A frequent explanation for why the first two ''Film/{{Alien}}'' films are so beloved is their success at this trope. They're [[NightmareFuel/{{Alien}} extremely]] [[NightmareFuel/{{Aliens}} effective]] horror films, yes, but they're also much more than that. As critic David McIntee writes, "Fans of [[Creator/AlfredHitchcock Hitchcockian]] thrillers like it because it's moody and dark. Gorehounds like it for the chest-burster. Science fiction fans love the hard science fiction trappings and hardware. Men love the battle-for-survival element, and women love not being cast as the helpless victim." The same goes for the [[Film/{{Aliens}} sequel]], which kept what people loved about the original, but added a cast of memorable supporting characters, snappy, highly quotable dialogue, a super-cool war movie GenreShift, and for female fans, an unusually female-centric story arc and the moving, surrogate-parent relationship between Ripley and Newt. There's even a [[EarnYourHappyEnding happy ending.]] Failure to follow this trope is why the sequels [[FanonDiscontinuity never happened.]]

* Is there even any wonder why ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' is probably the most accessible GatewaySeries for anime ever? It's got a lively cast of complex, likable, well-acted characters, a good balance of humor, action, and drama, cool spaceships and sci-fi tech, witty and memorable dialogue, kickass fight scenes, and a highly emotional love story between Julia and Spike. It doesn't hurt that it's got a [[SuperlativeDubbing legendarily good]] English dub, is [[ShoutOut/CowboyBebop stacked top to bottom]] with references to other Western media, and has what's probably [[AwesomeMusic/CowboyBebop the most rockin' anime OST]] ever made.
