** Works such as the two ''UsefulNotes/{{Hachiko}}'' movies (one Japanese and one American) or the anime ''Anime/GingaNagareboshiGin'' where the Akita Inu is portrayed as nothing but a kind and heroic dog might easily lead some viewers on in wanting their own Akita puppy. While the breed is indeed known for their bravery and loyalty, they can also be quite challenging to train and thus should only be cared for by an experienced owner as they might turn out aggressive otherwise.

* WilWheaton's ''WebVideo/{{Tabletop}}'' series has had this effect on several of the games it's featured, and it's now not uncommon to enter your Friendly Local Gaming Store and see 'as seen on Tabletop' signs next to games. The most notable example of this is ''BetrayalAtHouseOnTheHill'', which was out of print at the time it was featured on the series. Increased demand saw it get a shiny new edition it probably wouldn't have had otherwise.

** {{Franchise/Barbie}} dolls also got a boost from the second film, although Mattel's paranoia almost prevented this from happening. Creator/{{Pixar}} had wanted to use Barbie in the first movie, but Mattel said no, objecting to her being used as a [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Sarah Connor]]-esque {{Badass}}. Then Mattel saw how the toys the movie ''did'' feature got a sales boost (particularly Mr. Potato Head), and they were only too happy to see Barbie used in the second and third movies (with something of a compromise in personality).

** A mother in Finland once wrote an article stating that ''Kim Possible'' [[GirlsNeedRoleModels encouraged her daughter]] to take up cheerleading [[TookaLevelInBadass and martial arts lessons]]. A poster on a forum commented a similar thing happened with ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' (see above).

* ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' codified the ThreateningShark trope, and people took that to heart in real life. Beach attendance and other oceanic activities took a big hit. There were serious stories of people being afraid to [[UpToEleven take a bath]] after seeing ''Jaws''. It also caused a spike in shark hunting, as people would attack even harmless sharks, to the point of endangering them (especially the Great White). Creator/PeterBenchley, author of the novel ''Jaws'', was so troubled by tis that he devoted much of his later life to shark conservation. A popular Asian {{Urban Legend|s}} also claims that ''Jaws'' increased the demand for shark fin soup.

** The Mexican Day of the Dead celebration doesn't traditionally involve a giant parade, like the one Bond encounters at the start of ''Film/{{Spectre}}''. But then in 2016, the year after the film came out, the Mexico Tourism Board decided that there was enough demand for such a parade, both from people abroad ''and'' in Mexico itself, that they [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-37813562 organized one in Mexico City]] as a means of attracting tourists to the city.
