* The efforts to revive ''VideoGame/DisneyInfinity'' following its cancellation in May 2016 have been quite a roller coaster ride, with the game's devoted fanbase's efforts to get the game UnCancelled seemingly being for naught until the pay-off came in an unexpected manner well over a year after ''Infinity'' was cancelled. Back when the game was originally [[ShockingSwerve and quite abruptly]] announced to be discontinued, the fanbase was enraged and began fighting to save the game. Their efforts ranged from just rallying to out-right uncancel the game (if not for years to come, then at least to the end of the fourth quarter of 2016 so ''Infinity'' could have its last hoo-rah for Christmas), to licensing the rights to the game and figures to someone else (Square Enix and Electronic Arts being popular candidates), to at least releasing the promised Disney/PeterPan figure (who was hand picked to get a figure by some of the game's big name fans) or even the heavily teased figures of [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Dipper and Mabel]] (Mabel won a Player's Pick poll shortly before the announcement) and/or WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck (who had been teased since the game's ''2.0'' release) as a final thank-you to the fanbase. The hashtag "[=#SaveDisneyInfinity=]" gathered some steam on various social media websites, and [[https://www.change.org/p/the-walt-disney-company-save-disney-infinity?recruiter=539743505&utm_campaign=signature_receipt_fb_dialog&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition this online petition]] gathered more than 10,000 supporters in less than a month. Nonetheless, considering that Disney wrote down a financial loss on the day of its cancellation, and they later laid out their end-of-life plans for the game, these fans' efforts seemed pretty much fruitless to begin with...or at least it seemed that way for a very long time. October 2017 came with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRa86E9cQ1w the surprise announcement]] of a new action-figure toyline based directly on ''Infinity'''s beloved figures/designs. While ''Infinity'' as a video game is unlikely to return[[labelnote:*]](especially considering that the Toys-to-life genre bubble as a whole seems to have burst in the months since then, with ''VideoGame/LEGODimensions'' announced to be concluding in October 2017 and ''VideoGame/{{Skylanders}}'' not having any significant announcements since the latest game's release)[[/labelnote]], fans can rest assured that ''Disney Infinity'' has not been forgotten and that its legacy will live on.

* Fans of Disney were taken aback by the [[ShockingSwerve abrupt]] discontinuation of ''VideoGame/DisneyInfinity'' and have made a lot of noise as a result. These range from just rallying to out-right [[UnCancelled uncancel]] the game (even if just to the end of the fourth fiscal year so ''Infinity'' could have its last hoo-rah for Christmas), to licensing the rights to the game and figures to someone else (Square Enix and Electronic Arts are popular candidates to revive ''Infinity''), to at least releasing the promised Disney/PeterPan figure or even the heavily teased figures of [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Dipper and Mabel]] and/or WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck as a final thank-you to the fanbase. [[note]] What makes these four characters significant to the fanbase is that Peter Pan was specially chosen to gain a figure for the Toys-to-Life game by some of the series's biggest fans, Mabel (and by extent, Dipper) were the winners of a Player's Pick poll, and Darkwing Duck has been teased since ''Disney Infinity 2.0'', and it would seem downright insulting to the fanbase to hype up or green-light any one of these figures only to never release them.[[/note]] The fanbase feels that there is just [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot too much potential left]] for Disney to throw in the towel this soon. In the time following the announcement, the hashtag "[=#SaveDisneyInfinity=]" has gathered some steam on various social media websites, and [[https://www.change.org/p/the-walt-disney-company-save-disney-infinity?recruiter=539743505&utm_campaign=signature_receipt_fb_dialog&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition this online petition]] gathered more than 10,000 supporters in less than a month. (Even if online petitions are mostly SnarkBait to the internet, that's still pretty impressive.) Nonetheless, considering that Disney wrote down a financial loss on the day of its cancellation, and they later laid out their end-of-life plans for the game, these fans' efforts were pretty much fruitless to begin with.

* When Creator/{{Disney}}/Buena Vista put out their release plans for the home video and DVD release of ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' fans were upset that the DVD would not include a subtitled Japanese track. A letter writing campaign and petition mobilized by the Nausicaa.net mailing list sucessfully convinced them otherwise; apparently they had no idea there was a demand for it.

* ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'': In 2006, when Universal Studios announced their decision to replace the attraction with ''Ride/TheSimpsonsRide'' at both the Hollywood and Orlando parks, fans immediately went to work doing everything they could to save them; posting online petitions and writing letters to make the parks reconsider, but to no avail. However, the Hollywood park at least decided to hold a ceremony a month before the official closing in 2007. Notably, Creator/ChristopherLloyd and ''BTTF'' co-creator Bob Gale were in attendance and a contest was held for the grand prize of [[CoolCar a classic 1981 [=DMC-12=] [=DeLorean=]]] alongside other memorabilia. As a kind gesture, Universal later made the ride videos available to the public on the 25th Anniversary home media re-release of the ''BackToTheFuture'' trilogy in 2010. The last operating iteration of the ride closed at Universal Studios Japan in 2016.

* Apparently this was the reason the anime version of ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo'' got canned as parent groups claimed the show promoted bullying.

* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' is a very unusual, and very famous, example. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam The original series]] suffered from low ratings and had its episode count cut from 49 to 39 (though the staff begged for an extension and ended up with the odd number of 43 episodes). After this, creator[=/=]director YoshiyukiTomino had the idea to recut the series into a trio of {{Compilation Movie}}s; thanks to positive press from anime magazines and word of mouth, the trilogy was a colossal success, and the rest is history.

* When ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' was announced for the Japanese UsefulNotes/WiiU VirtualConsole [[NoExportForYou but nowhere else]], fans posted on Miiverse pleading Nintendo to release it in the west. In a later Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced an international release for ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', citing everyone's responses on Miiverse as the reason.
