** This trope is also why the game has so many different, highly distinctive armies to choose from. The [[Characters/Warhammer40000Astartes Space Marines]] are the mascot faction with a unique blend of futuristic and gothic themes, while the [[Characters/Warhammer40000ImperialGuard Imperial Guard]] appeal to historical military buffs thanks to the WorldWarII look of their infantry and tank kits. The [[Characters/Warhammer40000Eldar Eldar]]'s sleek aesthetics and colorful uniforms give pro painters a chance to shine, while the [[Characters/Warhammer40000TauEmpire Tau]]'s battlesuits and hovertanks have a near-future look to them aimed at {{anime}} or {{cyberpunk}} fans. The [[Characters/Warhammer40000Tyranids Tyranids]] are ideal for anyone who likes big scary monsters, while [[Characters/Warhammer40000ForcesOfChaos Chaos]] or the [[Characters/Warhammer40000Orks Orks]] are perfect for modelers who enjoy conversion work and creating mutated horrors and ramshackle war machines, respectively. Want to field an army of [[AmazonBrigade kick-ass women]] (both {{stripperiffic}} and in very reasonable armor)? The [[Characters/Warhammer40000Sororitas Sisters of Battle]] are the faction for you! This isn't even all the factions!

* There's a very good reason that fans of ''Film/HocusPocus'' often call it the perfect Halloween movie. It's ''just'' dark enough to satisfy fans of horror, with enough humor to appeal to fans of comedy, a surprisingly earnest story of sibling love to attract fans of drama, a love story for fans of romance, enough child and teenage characters to appeal to younger audiences, and a ton of musical numbers from Bette Midler and co. to appeal to music-lovers. Even so, there were many people at the time who criticized it for being too dark and/or cynical, especially compared to previous holiday films. So in a way ''Hocus Pocus'' has been VindicatedByHistory.

* Creator/{{Nintendo}} thrives on this. Not only does the ''[[SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' franchise have a multiple demographic appeal that greatly exceeds that of ''Sonic'', but most first party {{Wii}} titles are specifically designed for it.

* {{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.

** ''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...
