* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gough_Whitlam Gough Whitlam]] holds a similar status in UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}. In just three years as Prime Minister, he: abolished conscription and the death penalty, introduced universal health care, decriminalised homosexuality, established relations with [[UsefulNotes/{{China}} the People's Republic of China]], changed the national anthem from "God Save the Queen" to "Advance Australia Fair", replaced the honours system, got Australia out of TheVietnamWar, outlawed racially discriminative laws with the Racial Discrimination Act, and ended the last vestiges of the White Australia Policy. And this was despite the fact the opposition controlled the Senate for most of his term.

He left an impact even in the manner by which he left office: through [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1975_Australian_constitutional_crisis getting fired by the Governor-General]], the representative of [[UsefulNotes/HMTheQueen the Queen]], an appointed position that many Australians at that point saw as purely ceremonial but which [[BewareTheQuietOnes turned out to have a great deal of power]] that merely went unused until then. In addition to the political controversy that erupted over "the Dismissal", it became a galvanizing moment in the then-nascent movement for Australian republicanism.

This trope is about something having left a noticeable impact on its genre, even though the work/artist was cut short. Short works that were great but have not influenced their genre a lot yet (ex: ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'') don't go here.

* ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' only lasted three seasons (at least, before being {{Uncancelled}}) but had a huge impact on sitcoms, causing them to become more continuity heavy and meta.



* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' only lasted two seasons (a total of 40 episodes), yet it's hailed as one of the greatest western cartoons ever made thanks to its top-notch writing, lovable characters, being [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped honest with its morals and messages]], and [[WinBackTheCrowd won back]] many animation fans as it aired in a time where numerous [[Creator/CartoonNetwork beloved]] [[Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} TV]] [[Creator/DisneyChannel Show]] [[Creator/DisneyXD networks]] began undergoing NetworkDecay.

* ''Series/PressYourLuck'' only lasted three years, not a terribly impressive run for a GameShow, but it's still one of the most recognized in the genre, and often regarded as a CultClassic even to only casual fans. Many remember the show for the colorful animated {{Whammy}}s, and for notorious contestant Michael Larsen, who [[LoopholeAbuse memorized the board's light pattern]] to hit them up for over $100,000. The phrase "Big bucks, no Whammys!" has entered the public lexicon, and the show is a constant fixture on the rerun circuit (1987-1995 on USANetwork, and 2001-09/2012-present on {{GSN}}). GSN also launched a revival, ''Series/{{Whammy}}'', in the early 2000s, and ran a documentary on Larsen's episode.

* WebOriginal/{{Vine}} was created in 2012 and shut down in 2016, making it quite short-lived in comparison to other longstanding social media giants like Website/{{Facebook}}, Website/{{Twitter}}, and Instagram. In that time, it created some of the most popular {{meme|ticMutation}}s (among them Dabbing Squidward, Windows XP, and Damn Daniel) and viral hits (like "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" and "Panda") of TheNewTens, and made household names out of the likes of Music/ShawnMendes, Zach King, and Andrew B. "King Bach" Bachelor. By the time Twitter announced it would shut down the service in 2016, Vine was one of ''the'' must-use social media services, so it will likely to have this reaction during the years to come.
* Likewise, Website/MySpace's glory days only lasted five years, from its founding in 2003 to its decline circa 2008 as Facebook overtook it. It played a profound role in shaping many of the pop music trends of the TurnOfTheMillennium, most notably the EmoMusic scene.

* UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}, who only preached for three years, has had a significant spiritual impact on the world for more than 2,000 years. On the other hand, for people who view him as the Son of God, he can be seen to have influenced the world since before the dawn of time.



* Ernie Davis, running back for the Syracuse football team from 1958 to 1961, helped win Syracuse's sole national championship and was the very first African American college football player to win the Heisman Trophy. "The Elmira Express" was in the process of joining the Cleveland Browns and forming what was to be a dynamic running duo with fellow Syracuse veteran Jim Brown, before losing his battle to leukemia at the age of 23.
* Jonathan Larson died at the age of 35 of an aortic aneurysm, the night of the final dress rehearsal for the Off-Broadway production of ''Theatre/{{Rent}}'', but the show became a cultural phenomenon that ran on Broadway for over ten years and inspired many other musicals.



* Willy Brandt was elected chancellor of Germany in 1969 with one of the slimmest majorities in German history (12 seats out of 518). He was reelected by a big margin in 1972 and resigned over an espionage scandal (a personal aide turned out to be a Stasi spy) in 1974. In those five years, he singlehandedly set the pace for German foreign policy of the next decades. His "Ostpolitik" (Eastern policy) and the "Wandel durch Annäherung" (change through rapprochement) approach set the tone for East-West relations and there are memorable images (Brandt [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warschauer_Kniefall kneeling in Warsaw]], Brandt in East Germany and deafening cries of "Willy Willy") are still known to most Germans today. He was the first German chancellor to visit Israel and won a Nobel Peace Price in 1971 (which was announced in parliament during a session). In domestic policy he helped lower the voting age from 21 to 18, which helped in the aforementioned 1972 elections which he won largely on the youth vote. To this day many influential leftists in Germany cite Willy Brandt as one of their major inspirations.
