* David Willis, author of the ''{{Walkyverse}}'' {{web comic}}s, is another fan. He has been hired by Hasbro to produce convention art. He also got to create [[ComicBook/TransformersShatteredGlass Shattered Glass]] Ravage, who has become a canon character. He's also become something of a BigNameFan in general what with being one of the lead administrators for the Transformers wiki.

* ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'' star Ryoma Takeuchi is another name for the list, this time being a fan of ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' and [[SixthRanger Kamen Rider Accel]] in specific. In fact, this paid off in the character focus movie ''Drive Saga: Kamen Rider Chaser'': Takeuchi asked the staff if there was any way they could get Accel to cameo; thankfully actor Minehito Kinomoto was game, leading to the two Riders meeting thanks to JurisdictionFriction and eventually teaming up.
