** One horoscope listing also lampshaded this trope: "You're not sure how to react when people refer to you as 'The John Sherwood of Sailor Moon fanfiction'." (there's a LOT of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' fanfiction), it's just that--since most of it [[http://www.svamcentral.org/ewic/ms-sam.html is crap]]--it's [[NormalFishInATinyPond a lot easier to be good at it]].

* Box office records [[http://www.boxofficemojo.com/alltime/?page=byrecord&p=.htm often come down to this]]. As noted by the advertising folder, some movies have to find disclaimers that make them stand out - genres, rating, non-franchise\adaptations, or in case of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', "highest grossing film that [[Film/{{Titanic1997}} wasn't]] [[Film/{{Avatar}} directed]] by Creator/JamesCameron".

Added DiffLines:

* Robert Sawyer at one time declared himself "English-Canada's only native-born full-time science-fiction writer". Canadian science-fiction writers aren't a rare breed, but Sawyer's overly-narrow definition neatly excluded writers such as Jo Walton, William Gibson, S.M. Stirling, Gordon Dickson, Tanya Huff, Peter Watts, and Margaret Atwood.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': In the North and South comic, Toph describes the Beifong Metalbending Academy as "the most prestigious metalbending school in the world". One of her students points out they're the ''only'' school but she sees it as the point since they do something that used to be considered impossible until she learned how to do it.
