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

Till they decided to make a fourth with a television series which will probably only have one season.

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 Digimon “Digimon” is a term commonly used to describe a variety of 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), 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

4 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.

What?! Every recent 2010s Disney movie and T.V. shows such as Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls, and The Lion Guard have active strong fanbases! Disney will never die and they're buying everything!

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

5 Crash Bandicoot

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

I still like Crash

6 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

7 BeyBlade

Old and New one are stills good to me though

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

I thought Masters was good but not Fusion and Fury.

8 Bakugan

It was so nostalgic! I didn't know it was unpopular ever since. - Lucy1402

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

9 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

10 Spongebob Squarepants

This show is good all seasons, now stop being a crybaby

But still people love him

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

The Contenders

11 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

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 Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, also known in Japan as New Mobile Report Gundam Wing, is a 1995 Japanese mecha anime series directed by Masashi Ikeda and written by Katsuyuki Sumizawa.
15 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*

16 Full Moon o Sagashite
17 The Blues Brothers
18 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.
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.

The only good games were the first 3,generations ans they have bad games and this is coming from a mario fan who knows the truth

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.

20 Homestuck
21 Cartoon Network Cartoon Network is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner.

Cartoon network sucks because of mis-adventure time,expecially its miniseries mi-stakes

22 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated fantasy television series developed by Lauren Faust, produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver. Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and more.

For example, BronyCon will shut down this year. - KalloFox34

23 Star Fox

Maybe if Nintendo didn’t pander to the 64 elitists when making Zero, this fandom wouldn’t be on life support.

Yes, I'm a real big Star Fox fan and it is sad that the franchise's fans are starting to disappear and I wish the series was more popular. I was really hoping that Star Fox Zero would become a hit like 64 was, but nope, fans and critics hate it like it's the new Sonic 2006 or something which is so wrong, since Star Fox Zero was STILL a good game and nothing like what you consider to be "the worst games of all time". Yes, Zero did have motion controls worth getting used to, but so did The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, yet Skyward Sword was still loved, so why can you praise Star Fox Zero the same way?

At least Star Fox 64 is still considered to be one of the greatest Nintendo 64 games of all time.

24 Tokyo Mew Mew
25 Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
26 8-Bit Theater

Yes, Dazen from Miiverse and YouTube is writing this. All people who remember ComicCon from the years 2004-2009 saw the character cosplayers. Even if our dead fanbase was extremely hazardous Cancer.

27 Despicable Me
28 Michael Bay's Transformers

Good Thing Too That Fans Are Finally Finding Out That Michael Bay Wants Their Money

29 Five Night At Freddy's
30 Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is an American animated television series created by Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network Studios.
31 F-Zero

We haven't seen a new F-Zero game since 2004. Seriously, Nintendo. Come on...

32 PaRappa the Rapper
33 Mega Man Mega Man, known as Rockman in Japan, is the title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man series by Capcom.
34 Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie more.

It's just become stale and audiences are tired of the melodramatic BS.

35 Call of Duty
36 Frozen

One Word: Overexposure
