* [[AmericanGirlsCollection American Girl]], despite being a company aimed at girls between the ages of 8 and 12 mostly, has a very large fanbase of adult women, usually middle-aged or older with either children outside of the target age or no children of their own. There are at least three popular adult collector forums (with thousands of members each) and most of the secondary market is fueled by the demand from adult collectors.

* Whenever you watch a TV show, whether it's live-action or animation, and whether it's traditionally or streaming, have you ever noticed those advertisements for life insurance, arthritis medicine, the AARP, and other related products and services? This is because no matter what you're watching, there will be at least a small amount of elderly people among its audience, but not so small that advertising to them is meaningless. The prevailing method of them finding a show is by stumbling across it looking for something to watch, so whatever show you're watching, there have been at least a few elderly people who found it by chance and happened to like it enough to keep watching. Contrary to stereotypes about old people and television, these elderly people actually ''are'' paying attention to the show and understanding it, meaning Grandma may be the household's expert on ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' or ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack''.

** In Germany the ''Disney Ducks'' (or at least ''Lustiges Tashenbuch'') are popular by any demographic. This is due to the way comic book writing is handled there. Anyone could write for the comic series, with almost no rules as to what the content should be. This is why you could get some very traditional kiddy fare coupled with detective stories, romance, superhero stories and detailed metafictional stories about the economy in one and the same comic compilation (though the stories in general would have the same protagonist).

** While flops on their initial release, ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' and ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' saw a massive resurgence in the [[TheSixties late 1960s]]/[[TheSeventies early 1970s]] when they became popular with college-aged hippies and stoners. Rather than steering away from that rather family-unfriendly demographic, Disney actually responded by re-releasing both films into theaters and advertising them with psychedelic trailers and posters. Though criticized at the time, this plan ended up working out incredibly well for Disney: it not only helped them recoup their losses on both films, but it also helped Disney become more accepted by younger baby boomers, a subset who up until that point had been rather dismissive of the studio. When the baby boomers grew up and had families of their own, they showed their own kids ''Fantasia'' and ''Alice in Wonderland'' alongside more popular Disney movies, resulting in both movies [[VindicatedByHistory achieving "classic" status]] by the [[TheEighties late 1980s]].

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' has a very large fanbase of older fans of high school and college age (as well as librarians and parents) who picked up the series and stuck with it not only for its clever humor and being based on the idea of the MythologyGag, but also because of it's surprisingly deep character development and realistic responses to certain situations.
