I have a pokemon Ho-Oh Plush from when I was younger and I still have it but its wings always go sideways and it looks like hes dabbing. A few years later the dab became popular.

I knew a lot of the meme songs and really adored them (for example, Don't Stop Me Now - Queen, Roundabout - Yes, Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel, Mad World - Gary Jules, etc.) before they became popular  :fox-:P:

that album was so good thoughhhh

The only thing I can think of the whole "species army" you still see pop up here on FT every now and then. The Kitsune army was once a great one.. But alas it couldn't hold me my title of King Of Spam. (old inside joke a few of you may get)

I remember seeing such YouTube classics as "Chocolate Rain" and "Gangnam Style" before they became major sensations. I remember also playing "Call of Duty 3", which although had all ready been a respected series, never saw any major fanbase until the release of "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" two years later. I can't really think of much else at the moment, mainly because I tend to stay away from popularity in general and normally I don't discover something until it becomes popular. I do however remember one YouTube channel ran by a Daniel Hardcastle. otherwise known as Nerd Cubed way before he became the superstar that he is now. I stopped watching his channel do to popularity and I started to feel that he was only wanting money and fame, and along with that and his sometimes sacrilegious commentary, I could no longer support him. He's been doing rather well for himself now though, even developing indie games now.

Not like they used to. There's still niche group of people who collect them and stuff (mostly the signature ones). I know a girl at school who collects them and she said the community is mostly on Instagram now and it's more about the plush than the site

Well to be fair, those were released in 1978, 1971, 1964, and 2001 respectively and were definitely not obscure before their memeification, but I guess that could count if you consider multiple waves of trends  :fox-:P:

Wait, just curious, around what year did Webkinz transition to being considered mainstream? I got mine somewhere in between 2006 and 2008, so I have no idea. I just remember being really proud of my huge virtual house that I had created for my many cats and one dog  :lol-fox:

Well most of these are because people died and so they're somewhat cool now:

I listened to David Bowie before it was cool.
I loved Robin Williams' movies before it was cool.
I was a linux user before it was cool.

Undertale tbh. I saw it before it completely blew up in popularity. I think I even remember it sometime in 2015 (probably a demo/wip).

I was in the fandom...before it got a bad reputation.
