Top Ten Franchises With Disappearing Fanbases

Franchises that once had huge fanbases had slowly disappear.

The Top Ten

1 Batman Beyond

It was known as one of the best Batman cartoons in DC history until after the third season, Batman Beyond was cancelled. - Chaotixhero

I really like this show, but I don't notice many others who feel the same. - BeatlesFan1964

2 High School Musical

The series was cheesy with it always saying believe in yourself and goofy love songs... And it was a big hit until after the last movie, things went kinda quiet. - Chaotixhero

3 Crash Bandicoot

Sony could have brought him back but they said no. So blame Sony. - Chaotixhero

4 Earthworm Jim

The series was huge back in the day until one game killed the series. And that was Earthworm Jim 3D. They try and bring him back with ports of his first two game but they ended up as a disaster. - Chaotixhero

5 Digimon Digimon “Digimon” is a term commonly used to sum up several Japanese anime series based on the Bandai virtual pet brand “Digimon” (Dejimon). As of 2017, there are 7 series: “Digimon Adventure” (1999), “Digimon 02” (a.k.a. “Digimon Adventure 02”) (2000), “Digimon Tamers” (2001), “Digimon more.

Really? , the fanbase seems pretty alive to me. Despite the silence of the franchise.

First was a decent franchise but now is quite boring

6 Disney Disney The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

Mario was more recognizable than Mickey in the nineties when he was barely 10 years old! Now he is 30 and block busters such as New Super Mario Brothers DS, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart DS, and New Super Mario Bros. Wii all sold around 30 million copies. Not to mention games like Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 (which are considered the greatest games of all time.

And then there was Frozen.

Disney is fading.

Disney is a greedy swine that tries to buy out every company it sees to add it to it's list of assets, and I never get why it is so popular when not all of their movies or shows are considered good, most notably The Lion King is one of their worst franchises they ever created. That franchise and it's movies, shows, and characters suck and I don't get why TLK has so many fans when it shouldn't. At least TLK is not the highest grossing animated movie in the box office anymore when it got beat by some CGI feature, so hopefully it will be losing fans once a new hit is made.

Back in the day, Disney was huge. It was better than both Nick and Cartoon Network. But then new shows came and... People wasn't happy. They try and bring Mickey Mouse back to fix things but not even Mickey can save Disney's Dark Ages. - Chaotixhero

For a while, they had lost their fanbase (not counting Pixar). However, recently with Tangled, Frozen, and Zootopia they have gained a new fanbase. - BeatlesFan1964

7 Mega Man Battle Network

I never played that game but is a Game Boy game that why he has not to much fans

This series needs more love. - PerfectImpulseX

8 BeyBlade

Used to be good until the newer Beyblade cartoons came. Beyblade Metal Fusion was the only good cartoon. - Chaotixhero

9 Bakugan

To begin with, this never was popular.

To begin with, Bakugan wasn't popular.

Bakugan was really one of the best Pokemon inspired franchise. So what happended? Bakugan just... Disappeared. - Chaotixhero

10 Spongebob Squarepants

He was good until season 5. Season 4 was not bad so there is that. - Chaotixhero

The Contenders

11 Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle

Every girl on YouTube and LiveJournal was obsessed over this back in the Mid-to-Late-2000's. - PerfectImpulseX

12 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Mobile Suit Gundam SEED

Same as Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle - PerfectImpulseX

13 Harry Potter

Potter Still Has A lot Of Fans Out There

Clearly, you haven't met me. - keycha1n

What the hell is this bull

14 Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii

I enjoyed the game and had it since 2008, but ever since the new Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U came out in 2014, Brawl stared to get hated by it's (former) fanbase once it's fanbase moved on to the newer games. I may like SSB for Wii U/3DS but I also like it's predecessors, including SSBB. *cough* haters are going to hate me *cough*

15 Full Moon o Sagashite
16 The Blues Brothers
17 Total Drama Total Drama Total Drama is a Canadian animated comedy television series which is a homage and parody to the conventions commonly found in reality television.
18 Homestuck
19 Sonic

Surprised this wasn't on the list already. Sonic may still have fans left, but it also has been gaining a lot of hate lately just because of the newer games. Since then, "Sonic" has been nothing but a controversial mess where fans start flaming and ranting over towards each other, and that's all what most people think of whenever "Sonic" is mentioned. I rather stay out of that mess and just play and like the games for what they are and not have to worry about what the fans/haters say about it.

It's disappearing because we're running out of Sonic games that are good, and if the horrible Sonic games keep going, the only thing for Sega to do is end Sonic's reputation once and for all. If the Sonic the Hedgehog series end, the Sonic fan base will be gone.

They'll always have at least one fan. I'm buying Fire and Ice no matter what.
