** ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' turned out to be a special case of this. While winning over fans of the original Genesis games as a genuine return to Sonic's roots (after [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4 the previous game]] that was supposed to do that was widely declared [[{{Sequelitis}} as a giant misstep]]), it also attracted widespread acclaim from the general press and gaming community as the first brilliant ''Sonic'' game in years; attested to by the game collecting several awards and nominations at its E3 showcase (unheard of for a ''Sonic'' title) and ultimately becoming the highest-reviewed ''Sonic'' game in over a decade. ''Mania'' has also been proclaimed by many as a desperately-needed return to quality after the series stumbled yet again with the average ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld'' and the widely-panned ''VideoGame/SonicBoom'' spinoff games (not helped by the [[BrokenBase split reactions]] over ''VideoGame/SonicForces'').

* The entire ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' franchise was in a very precarious position for several years, largely due to an extended dry spell broken up only by the [[BrokenBase contentiously received]] (to say the least) ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeFederationForce''. Fans of the franchise were left largely unsatisfied, a situation not helped by Nintendo completely ignoring the series' 30th anniversary and [[ScrewedByTheLawyers their DMCA takedown]] of ''VideoGame/AnotherMetroid2Remake''. Things seemed bleak for fans of the franchise and for the franchise itself. However, at E3 2017, Metroid came back with a vengeance, with not one, but two games in the franchise announced. The long-requested ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime4'' was confirmed to be in development for the UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch, as well as an official remake of ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'', entitled ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'', for the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS. Fandom elation has been at the highest level it's been in years over these announcements.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', following the success of VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron (and being in that same universe), has won over basically all fans of the franchise - including man [[UnpleasableFanbase Gee-Wunners]] - and is marked as being the best Transformers show since ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', if not even better. Part of this is the serious tone of the show, the return of the original voice actors for Optimus and Megatron, and the ubiquity of pieces of the Transformers Mythos from [[AllMythsAreTrue every major installation of the Transformers Franchise]]. Then it won a bigger crowd with the third season.

* It seems that ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is taking this direction, since after the [[SeasonalRot much reviled Season 7]]: Peter's Jerkassery was toned down, Brian is no longer the AuthorAvatar everybody was sick of, Meg and Chris are getting more screentime, and the Meg bashing is much, much less blatant, [[CharacterRerailment Stewie starts to show glimpses of his old characterization]], the newer chapters have better storylines and less flashbacks and pop culture references (which, by the way, are more recent and easier to get than the obscure 70-80s references that nobody recognized), the BlackComedy is less prominent, etc. There are even a few dramatic and serious moments once in a while.

*** The Alola arc likewise had a hard time gaining fans, due to its DenserAndWackier nature (the fact that the games it was based on were actually DarkerAndEdgier compared to their predecessors didn't help), the redesigns of the characters, and the school setting. But then came the announcement that Misty and Brock would be making a guest reappearance. . .

** Things continued improving for Nick in 2016 with the near-unanimous praise of ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'', greenlighting a one hour special for storytelling of 'WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' and shelving ''Breadwinners'' to {{Nicktoons}} without renewing it for a third season. These improvements especially stick out against main rival Cartoon Network, which in 2015 fell into what some viewers consider to be a new DorkAge and began making some of the same mistakes Nickelodeon was making during 2009 to 2014.

** It should be noted that the PeripheryHatedom that reacted (and still reacts) with disgust at ''Friendship is Magic'' wouldn't be won over to the MagicalGirl genre until ''Steven Universe'' became a hit.
* After the superhero genre quickly grew into SnarkBait, a lot of the PeripheryHatedom regained faith in the superhero genre with the successes of ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'', ''Film/{{Logan}}'', ''Series/{{Jessica Jones}}'' and ''Series/{{LukeCage}}''.
