Top 10 Franchises that Resonated with an Unintended Target Audience
The Top Ten
It helped break gender barriers. Boys liking girl stuff is a GREAT change.
Before, barely any boy would like girl stuff but this show actually changed everything about how boys think about girl stuff. Congratulations!
Isn't that a good thing though? Like it was intended for little girls, but it's so good, that grown men can like it.
This show was made for little girls. Grown men like it more than little girls.
People are allowed to enjoy whatever they want, so stop.
This show was made for stoners and tweens. Weeaboos and emos like this show. I still don't get how this show is influenced by anime.
This game is loved by people younger than the target audience. Also, how is this game similar to Minecraft?
Almost half the people in my high school love this show! (Emphasis on high school)
Adult and teenage furries watch this show, but the target audience is still mainly toddlers.
I'm 13 and I can't stand it, why does everyone older adore it?
This toy was made for young girls, but teenage emo anime fans enjoy it more.
This band is a mystery box of musical genres except for punk rock, but emos love it. I guess their cover of "Cancer" by My Chemical Romance proved that.
Pokemon is supposed to be for little kids yet pretty much any age range can be a fan of it. I personally knew a 67 year old woman who loved to watch the movies and T.V. series alongside Beyblade and other shows. Not to mention that I have seen more fellow adults when playing the games online.
Although many watched this show when they were kids, the fanbase is now made up of adults and otaku teens.
The games too >:(
This show is made for adults, but kids watch it mostly.
No, mostly adults and teenagers watch it.
It reached the right demographic
Kids don't watch this show mostly.
Call of Duty is a rated M game, but children 6 years and up play this game with no problem.
This game isn't THAT inappropriate for children. It's perfectly fine.
This game is for ages 17 and up, but most of its fanbase is way under 17.
This show is adored by teenage weeaboos, who aren't the target audience. There are some anime references, but it's not influenced by it.
The target audience is adults. Teens watch it.
Made for the preschool demographic that watches Disney Jr., but there are tons of dark and explicit overtones in the show that may be disturbing.
Supposed to be made for fans who watch Disney films, but it is a heck lot darker and edgier than most other Disney films and, it maybe just my imagination, but TLK seems to have gotten a Non-Disney appeal that other Disney movies don't have, and this could be why it's fans tend to crossover it with something Non-Disney like Balto rather than another Disney film. WHAT IN THE WORLD?!
Is a Non-Disney film made by Amblimation that is family-friendly, yet so many furries and Lion King fans who make erotic art/fanfics tend to obsess over it. >_< I feel that this wrong audience gives the film a bad reputation.
Made to be a video game series by Sega to complete with and cash-in to the success of Nintendo's Mario. But sadly, the Sonic franchise attracted the wrong audience in the form of classic cartoon fans, who have comparing Sonic to the likes of Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny as opposed to video game characters like Mario, Pac-Man or Mega Man. It's even worse when these fans make crossovers of Sonic with anything that isn't a video game icon. I don't care what anyone says, Sonic will ALWAYS be just a video game icon to me. Sonic may be adapted to T.V. shows or such, but so do other video game icons, so there is no reason to see Sonic as a cartoon icon rather than a video game icon.
Who created the Fandom? Nicki Minaj
This movie caused many people to create the worst fandom ever: Rise of the Brave Frozen Tangled Dragons
It’s rated r yet 99% of the fandom is just edgy 7-12 year olds
