** He also panders to the base in a non-shipping way - in ''Series/ICarly'' and ''{{Victorious}}'' he's given the EnsembleDarkHorse characters a bigger role once he found out how much the community liked them.
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'' is a big offender: the writers have totally acknowledged that they [[ThrowItIn make it up]] as they go along, and ''many'' plot points were encouraged/demanded by or flat-out dreamed up by the audience, including: Creator/IdinaMenzel as [[spoiler:Rachel's biological mother]], the Brittany/Santana relationship (largely spearheaded [[OneOfUs by actor]] Creator/NayaRivera), Creator/GwynethPaltrow's performance of an Music/{{Adele}} song ("Turning Tables"), and more.

* ''Film/{{Hatchet}} II'' was intended to be the same as the original ''Hatchet'', but more, for the sake of fans. It was also littered with in-jokes and one ContinuityNod after another. [[ContestedSequel Reception was mixed.]]

** This is a case of learning from experience: The UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} and UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube were ultimately perceived by some critics as being only for little kids and hardcore Nintendo fanboys, which resulted in teenagers, adults, and third-party developers going for the PlayStation instead. With the Wii, Nintendo seems to be avoiding this perception. However, a good number of third party developers, mostly in western nations, have either failed or rejected to follow Nintendo's direction, with most of their top tier titles still on Creator/{{Sony}} and [[MicrosoftStudios Microsoft]]'s platforms. That got to change over time: A couple high profile flops on the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, and the fact that of the largest developers, the ones giving the Wii the least support have been showing losses (Creator/TakeTwoInteractive and Creator/ElectronicArts), while the ones giving the Wii support are doing well (Creator/{{Activision}} and {{Ubisoft}}). The CEO of Take Two even said they couldn't ignore the Wii's success anymore.

** Valve also ported over every single campaign from Left 4 Dead 1 into Left 4 Dead 2 as a throw to fans that have been porting the maps over themselves (with varying results) so the fans can play Left 4 Dead 1's maps with elements used in Left 4 Dead 2. Of course, this [[InternetBackdraft pissed off players who bought Left 4 Dead 1 already]].

** Marigold is a cute-but-curvy girl with low self-esteem (despite her large breasts) and a major fandom for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' and popular anime series. She probably represents the fans better than anyone else in the cast.

** The [[MilestoneCelebration 100th episode]], which is titled "SliceOfLife". Involves the main characters being busy dealing with a monster while the episode itself focuses on characters that are considered very popular {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s in the fanbase, which includes characters like Derpy, Doctor Whooves, Vinyl Scratch, Octavia and others. The episode even explained Lyra and Bon-Bon as best friends compaired that they only sat on a beach in Season one. (Unfortunately, even though they canonically best friends, fans still romantically ship [[FanPreferredCouple Lyra/Bon-Bon ]] despite canon and the fact the friendship is a big deal in Equestria.) The fact that the monster is [[PandaingToTheAudience part panda]] may be some kind of a StealthPun.

* One of the major theories of why UsefulNotes/TheJapaneseInvasion had began to grind to a halt in TheNewTens is that the anime industry in Japan in general has been pandering more and more to its core otaku base at the expense of a most likely wider audience creating a vicious circle of appeal to otaku, sales lower as you appeal to less of a wider audience, increasing prices for little content to make up for the loss and then circling back around to appeal to otaku even more and on and on.

* With its heavier emphasis on practical effects, and closer look and feel to the original trilogy, ''[[Film/TheForceAwakens Episode VII: The Force Awakens]]'' can be seen as this for ''Franchise/StarWars''.
