Most Popular Fandoms

There are a lot of fandoms out there, some are really damn popular.

The Top Ten

1 Harry Potter Fandom

Harry Potter changed my life. It opened me to a world of magic and fun, of imagination and friendship. From when I read the first book many years ago to now, the Harry Potter series is my all time favorite. It helped me become more social with others, improve my reading and writing skills, and whenever I read a Harry Potter book or watch a movie, I go into a state of happiness. Harry Potter has something for everyone, and anyone who says any different probably just needs a hug.

I am part of most of these fandoms and anyone who thinks Harry Potter isn't the greatest fandom is kidding themselves

Harry Potter has changed countless people for the better! It's the fandom that's super prevalent in some people and in some it's the fandom that never goes out of style. Harry Potter is the fandom that is always there to welcome you home.

Harry Potter is hands-down the best book series I have ever and will ever read. It was one of my first (and only) fandoms and it has a big part in my life and heart and when I'm 100 years old I'll still love it and watch the movies every night and read the books with my grandkids and great-grandkids. It is the only series where I have felt a true 'emotional bond' with the characters and cried my eyes out over deaths, and I felt hardcore grief when I finished the last book 3 years ago.
I am so happy its number one on this list and I totally understand why it's so popular ahhah. It's amazing.

2 Doctor Who Fandom

This show is my life and its been going for so long! I'm expecting another 50 years or I'll be seriously disappointed

There is a man...some call him a hero...others a warrior...many know him as a Doctor. Me? I don't need to call him anything. No matter what he is or what face he has. The only you have to know is that when you heard the blue box there is no time to think, you have to run to the adventure through space and time. When you heard the song...you will know that there is The Doctor...Not a name and not only a nickname...a promise.

I love this fandom and this show.

For different reasons, it's an amazing show. And the concept is magnificent, and that's why it has a fandom.

This show has obtained what no other series ever will; immortality.
Doctor Who gives us everything, everything that ever has existed and everything that ever will. It gives us time and space and a character that is constantly changing and developing. It gives us the wackiest ideas but it's one of the most believable things I've ever watched. I know the Doctor, despite the fact that he's a time travelling alien with two hearts. There will never be a time when a hero like the Doctor won't be needed.

3 Supernatural

Supernatural is possibly the most terrifying, yet widely spread fandom on Tumblr, next to Harry Potter (possibly even equal). We literally rule the internet with our post-hijacking and seemingly never ending gay ships. Don't cross us. We have the power of angels, the king of Hell, Lucifer, and the best hunters in existence on our side. Plus, we have guns, and we'll find you.

Supernatural is literally one of the biggest fandoms on Tumblr and can literally take over any and every post that has no whatsoever relevance to Supernatural. And the bond between the cast, crew and fans is exceptional and strong as hell. They have started from the bottom and literally risen to the top, well almost but still. I am proud to be a part of the SPN family even if I am the most irrelevant and most unimportant out there. And I really love the way that Jensen and Jared act out their roles, and at times become them, and with the effort, tears and sweat that they have poured and gave in the show that they love, so I truly hope that they will finally be given an Oscar. I'm bummed that this isn't at the very top but I am happy nevertheless. SPN family forever.

They have had to start up with nothing behind them like other shows in their league of representation like the flash or any other to shows you would hear of if you went to comic con. They have had to start at the bottom and work to the top and for the bond the show has between the fans and the cast plus crew that is a strong bond and it is going to be really hard when the show ends

Spn must be the strongest show I have ever watched and have you seen the cast.

4 Anime Fandom Anime Fandom

I don't see why so many people are so unsure about this one, there may be few weird parts of it but that does not stop me from liking this. I just love how cute and funky the designs are and every anime I came across so far has really good story lines and characters. My favorites are Bleach, No Game No Life, Full Moon, Ultra Maniac, and Norigami, which my friends also really like. There are tons of genres too, there's action, like Dragon Ball Z and Bleach. There's romance and comedy like Full Moon and Ultra Maniac. Don't forget the kawaii magical girl genre too.

Anime has become an art that expresses ideas and themes in terms of animation, sound, characterizations, graphics and overall plots and presentations. There's a genre for everyone and creators are not afraid to use non-binary and trans characters.

I love the anime fandom I'm apart of it I don't think it should be split into categories if it's anime it's part of the anime fandom I've seen so many different animes that u can't really classify me in a certain anime fandom it's all a big fandom and it's constantly get bigger and I think that's awesome

Once you get into it there is no going back...

5 Game of Thrones

Game of thrones has all of genres, fantasy, action, drama, horror, suspense and even some romance its got an awesome plot and its and epic fantasy with many awesome characters

Game of Thrones is simply the best. Great actors, best effects, best soundtracks, the best developed plotline, everything is just GREAT.

The book-readers and show-watchers get akin extremely well where the book-readers do not give many plot spoilers.

Only because of Thomas SangsteršŸ˜

6 Phan (Dan and Phil)

Dan and Phil changed my life. They're witty, creative, relatable, and I can never stop myself from grinning whenever I hear their voices. The phandom is made up of people who are all the same way- some of us coming to make friends, some of us because we've been in really, really bad places and Dan and Phil saved us. Through their videos, we found a community that's always there to help, that's accepting, and that creates the most amazing (and sometimes horrifyingly silly) phan inspired works. Dan and Phil's lives have been documented for over 8 years now, and watching two people grow up, quite literally, has been an astonishing experience for me. I've watched two nerds with bad haircuts, insecurities and horrible webcams become successful and confident, and nothing has ever inspired me to be a better person more than that experience.

The Phandom rangest from the weirdest to even the most serious of people. They have brightened the days of so many people, and they taught me that not all celebrities are perfect; they are the epitome of perfectly imperfect people. And that's okay. The phandom is all about support and loving everything about yourself. Dan and Phil are funny, sarcastic, clumsy, and are just plain weird. But that's why they are loved by so much. Because people aspire to be like them, and it isn't that hard because they are open and they show us their real selves. That you can become what you want just by being yourself. Even if they aren't a couple, the fandom just keeps on spouting fanfiction about them. Though it's funny, it's also beneficial because writing is an educational hobby that can help improve one's skills. They have brought so many people together, and they have helped me make friends, unintentionally. They make us feel special, but they do it by being themselves. I just can't put into ...more

Dan and Phil make so many people's lives so much better. Including me. They make me smile, and others smile as well. I love them with all my heart! They bring sunshine in bad times, and deserve the hearts of everyone around the world. They are truly the best people on the planet.

The phandom are my people :) a lot of us have the same interests and we have Philly and Dan so that kinda makes us the best. They're amazing funny and relatable, the only thing is that Phil has less subscribers than Dan but their both still awesome. I'm British but their accents are amazing

7 Star Wars

It has a great story ark, great character line, and any 6 year-old onward into space in general would LOVE these movies. I honestly think it should be number 1, as it is so good. So far, Disney has done a good job and they are releasing an eighth one already. The seventh one was spectacular and should really be recognized for this.

I can't believe it's not even in the top 5. Star Wars is art, philosophy, religion and what not?! The heroes, the villains and the tragedies The equipment, the weapons, the vehicles, the planets, the ships and what not?!. It's all there! It's literally a universe.

This is literally 24. Not even in the top twenty, when it should be number one. Star Trek is higher than this, and gravity falls! How?!?!

Star wars For Life.
I mean, literally.

8 Directioners Directioners

Us directioners, we fight as a fandom, one thing we don't like, we have it trending worldwide in less than half an hour, you hate one member, you better hope you have life insurance, we fight as one, not thousands, we make random things worldwide, sell out all our boys tours, dedication to watch them, pay for them items and they still think their crazy, well this has became our world now, the only way to remove the fandom is when they all die, which will not happen under the watch of us directioners, the boys had a bad day, we cheer them up not like other fandoms.

One direction are so amazing the boys make us so happy and no one understands how much they mean to us they always make us smile and we would do anything for one of their hugs we're not just directioners we're family

The 1D family is definitely one of the strongest ones. We will always continue to support our boys no matter what. These boys are not like any other idols, these five lovable dorks are the best thing that has ever happened to me and they always connect with and thank Directioners as much as they can. Yes this may sound cheesy and very stupid but for all the haters out there, if u don't like these guys keep it to yourself because believe it or not they are a big part of many peoples lives, they were there for us when many people werent, they can take away our sadness in the blink of an eye and make us fell at home hen we listen to their music. We love these guys and always will

I'm honestly surprised we're not first. We've hacked security cameras, we get things trending world wide in five minutes, we support each other, we sell out tours and pre-order albums like out lives depend on it, we've tried to get the boys to release a song as a single (most know this as the No Control project), we're crazy creative and very dedicated, and we're all able to pull together to create something huge (my example being the San Siro fan project whilst the boys sang Right Now). We shouldn't even be considered a fandom to be honest, because we're much more than that. We're a family who will fight till the end and support the boys in everything that do. The boys are the sources of our happiness and so, in return, we try to do whatever pleases the boys. They love us just as much as we love them and without each other, we would all individually be nothing really. Our family is often misunderstood but when you're apart of it, you get wrapped in the overwhelming feeling of love, ...more

9 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity ...read more.

Gravity falls is my favourite show ever, its surprising it was made by Disney, but Alex Hirsch is pretty talented, the good thing is that gravity falls might actually continue as a comic book series, looking forward to that

I just LOVE THIS SHOW. I'm sad it ended, but it had such a proper closure and the fans will live on and love! This fandom was pretty great and very accepting, so much fun and so much of a family. Still one of my favorite shows

Gravity falls is great. It's a soul-consuming paranoia trap, that includes hypothesizing galore. The fandom collectively figured out a main plot line, before the hints at it were revealed. Our fandom is great!

The fandom is AMAZING. I've never imagined that it could be sooo big. A lot of kind people, fans of his fandom even make scravenger hunts for fans. Fans also are waiting for new comic book so we're not so dead.

10 Star Trek

I love it, even though I'm not really part of the fandom. The idea of going to space and meeting all these new species... It's pretty amazing because that could happen in the future. You never know

I can't even voice how much my life has been influenced by Star Trek. I feel like after watching it, no matter who you are, you always seem to get a feeling... a feeling to be a little kinder and move more towards the future that it depicts.

An immortal series with amazing characters, plots and even subtext; the franchise that never stops giving

I met my best friend through this fandom. I will always love it.

11 Sherlock Fandom

Sherlock is the best fandom ever. The plot, story, chemistry between the characters and of course sassy Sherlock, makes the show the wonderful adventure that it is. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are perfect cast. Martin gives the role of John Watson a serious, but also very funny side. He is wonderful with his expressions. Benedict is wonderful as Sherlock plus he is crazy hot! His long deductions is amazing played. Long live the Sherlock fandom!

SHERLOCKK <3

How come it's so low in the ranking? I know its comparatively new, but come on! Anyone scrolling in tumblr would definitely tell you this fandom is always posting new stuff they've observed on the show, including Johnlock references. And BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH, our glorious leader. Jeez, as always, you see but you do not observe (hmph!) This shoulder be definitely higher!

Sherlock deserves to be an it higher up. The fandom is both insane and amazing, being able to pick out the tiniest details in the show thanks to the long hiatus and coming up with the most extravagant theories. The long hiatus however does has its downsides as we crave for more benedict and Martin as Sherlock and John.

I LOVE Sherlock it is defiantly one of the best fandoms ever and needs to be higher on the list.

12 My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

I think MLP is a huge fanbase because, well I'm apart of it, They actually created the "Bronies" who are men who love the show. And Yeah, It was a show based for small girls but the context on some episodes are quite entertaining for some older viewers. Also It really brings out what Friendship should be.

Favorite fandom

Bronies are a little strange but I respect their opinion even though I like my little pony - Ihateschool

I think it is best for children

13 Hunger Games

The Hunger Games is universally known for being a brutal story, but it's so much more than that. Anyone can get behind it! I've never met someone that's read the books/seen the movies and didn't like them

I like it,I'm not really a part of the fandom though

The hunger games is the best ever

The best movie ever

14 Lord of the Rings Fandom

It's such an awesome fandom! There is so much lore involved in it. IT IS THE BEST FANDOM

One of the earliest examples of fandoms, it became hugely popular after its release, its affected books, movies, music, counter culture movements, started a new modern fantasy genera the list could go on

One of the best fandoms ever!

HOW CAN ONLY TWO PERCENT LOVE LOTR I LOVE IT IT IS MY LIFE...

I GET STAR TREK, HP, GOT, but, Directioners? Like seriously?

15 Percy Jackson Percy Jackson Perseus "Percy" Jackson is a fictional character, the title character and narrator of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson & the Olympians series.

This fandom will always be closest to my heart, it was the first fandom that I was actually in. I remember first reading it and loving every bit, I remember convincing my friends and family to read it. I remember learning what I fandom actually was because of PJO. It seems like no matter how many years pass, no matter how many books come out or don't come out, we will always be there. We don't get in fights like other fandoms do. But in the end we are all one fandom and we will always be there for each other.

Percy Jackson was the greatest thing that happened to me. It taught me about a lot friendship and of coarse Greek mythology. And even though I was really late to this fandom I feel like I'm apart of it. Some people are mislead about it especially because the of awful movies but if they just read the series they can see the true power in the story.

I personally think that Harry Potter is a little easier to keep up with because there's less character relationships to remember, but I LOVE Percy Jackson. It taught me everything I know about mythology and it should totally be in the top 10

OH MY GODS. Honestly. Why isn't this like, at least number 4 or something. Then again, a lot of these random have a lot more factors, and also have been around loner than Percy Jackson. :(

16 Homestuck Fandom

Homestuck changed my life. It's funny, it's sad, it has EVERYTHING! It's so amazing, and I miss the sense of community that was the 2012 fandom. We're still here, though! I'm even reading it with my dad!

YOU can't FIGHT THE HOMESTUCK!

But seriously, it's amazing. That characters are so intricate and you learn to love them all. And the ships. So many ships!

I left the fandom but it's HUGE no matter how old it gets there will always be at least 20 weirdos covered in gray paint at conventions

Why am I alive end my suffering

17 Hetalia Fandom

I can't be completely sure on this, but I believe that the Hetalia fandom has gained a bit of a bad reputation. I've seen pictures where fans have shown themselves to be explicitly racist, and seeing this makes me incredibly upset and angry over how people are so blind as to not be able to see what Hetalia actually means. Beyond the stereotypes, it is an amazing anime that never fails to make me feel better, no matter what. It is filled to the brim with comedy, and most of the fandom is nice, in its own way. Sure, dramatic shipping wars happened, but I think it was kind of inevitable, given the large cast of characters and the amount of potential interaction between all of the characters. This is a pretty short comment, but this is my own little two cents adding on to support a life-changer for me.

I'm aware of the fact that this fandom has a bit of a history with the shipping wars and what not, but that's just the past. Even when that was going on, there weren't really that many people participating in it. Really, this fandom's not as bad as people think it is, especially now that it has really grown up. The shipping wars are practically non-existent now and there isn't as much yaoi in the fandom (I've noticed that yaoi seems to peeve a lot of people who aren't into it, but I personally don't think it's something that makes a fandom bad). Even when Hetalia was at it's worse, there are much more cancerous fandoms out there now a days. I'd even say people in popular fandoms like football (yes, I realize not everyone who likes football is obnoxious, this is just based on personal experience) are more annoying than these 'socially unacceptable' groups. People who are into these things that happen to be more popular than anime tend to be so rude to those who 'live under a rock'. So ...more

I don't know why people hate our fandom so much. I think it's way better than what others think. We're pretty supportive of each other in the fandom too, and respect everyone's opinions.

Okay, so I know there used to be a lot of issues to do with ships and such, giving this fandom a bad reputation. This is disappointing, as once you filter out the bad fans, the Hetalia fandom is amazing! The show/manga/webcomic never fails to make me entertained. I love the characters and the concept. Sure, if you don't like yaoi and yuri then it might not be best for you to engage a lot, but there is a lot of potential for hetero ships.

18 Minecraft Fandom

If there is one game I'm totally addicted to, it's this one. There's just so much to do, especially with the new update. Most of it is very fair and it teaches you a lot of ways to create and survive, I even heard lots of schools play this for education.

This Fandom has talent that I've never seen in my life. They dedicate music, art, and time into any work they make for this show

... This fandom is like really old but pretty underrated because not many people actually joined the FANDOM.

This game is for your IMAGINATION. It's so addictive

19 Undertale

Undertale is probably the only game that drew me in so deeply and indulged, unlike Pokemon. Don't get me wrong. I've played Pokemon nearly my entire life. I'm also obsessed with Pokemon, but not like Undertale. So much secrets and personality are put into every crevice of the game. The characters are so much relatable, like Sans. Music is amazing. The story is good too. But what made it great is the possibilities of everything in this game. Both good and bad. This game can be dark too. Really dark. But that's why I love it even more.

Undertale is pretty much my life. The entire community is so diverse and everyone is accepted. I mean, there's something for everyone, little secrets here and there, a beautiful story, and so much more. It's so much deeper than a munch of pixels in a screen. Each and every character no matter how big or small a part they play, has its own unique personality. It's more than just a game, to some people like me, it is and always will be a part of their life. These characters and this story will stay with them forever.

9/10: The only thing that could be better are the overworld sprites. I am very aware that they were working with a small team, Toby Fox and the rest, but other than that, it has been one of the BEST games I have played or seen in years. It is funny, GREAT music, and overall good characters. They put depth and personality into them to give them that quirky style. It also is very aware of your actions as they are saved when you do something. This definitely is a gaming revolution in my opinion.

Undertale is a VERY large fandom, even with a small mini-fandom inside of it (the AU Sanses), which is the first I've seen. The remixes are fantastic, the fanart is wonderful, and they are very accepting. Way to go, Toby, you've inspired many.

20 MLP Fandom

It simply means the world to me. Not for the reasons generally depicted, It's a matter of time and place for me, and my love of the show and the fandom is incredibly personal and particular. And to the haters, I'm sorry that the the complete lack of cynicism or rainbow pastel colors or the the friendship hurts your sensibilities. Your opinion is valid to you and that's enough for me to respect it. But do try to prioritize your time better, there are better thing to do than attack strangers on the internet.

At the conventions, it's like your all a happy family when I first went to one. A lot of people welcome to the con and people were very nice and not like school. ( I don't get pick at school but still wired and bad) their a lot of people who take it very seriously and that's ok. But when I look up mlp stuff on YouTube (this was the first time every look this up) I found a lot of videos and music that was very good and I really like the fandom and I wish can back to a convention again. ;(

This show had brought to mind that it doesn't have to be adult to have adult messages that we need in our everyday life. It teaches the basics of social understanding even racial understanding in the most creative ways. We are proud to have this.
