It would be difficult.  Most attention and accessibility is given to phone games or free console games.  I didn't play it, but look at the attention Pokemon Go got.  A lot of people tried it because of the hype and the fact that it was only a download away.  MUGEN, being as customizable as it is, and requiring work and effort to build and maintain it, can't compete with these, "Download & go!" type of games.

It's just my opinion, but I think most people (ordinary, not gamers), who don't have the love we do for comic characters or fighting games (and f.g. characters) want something quick and simple.  Instant gratification.  That's why I suggest a phone-type of introduction to them.  It's the best way, I feel, to find the "gamers" and show them MUGEN in case they never found it.  Would everyone stick with it?  no, but you can help build the community up more.  The problem is now, that MUGEN, the way it is designed, with all the custom content, doesn't work so well with a P2P game environment.  (Not to MY humble knowledge, I really don't play P2P games, so I could be incorrect.)

These are just my thoughts

It's not Pokemon GO popular, but it is fairly popular to anyone who has played fighting games in the past as well as the newly spawned Undertale fandom has also gained a huge interest in MUGEN. I say it's popular, just not as popular as Pokemon Go, undertale and the likes.

If Mugen needs to be popular, then you need newcomers than just old users that they already know about mugen. Not to mention that some of them are already quitting mugen because of their RL and stuff.

I don't know, Mugen was already popular in 1999 when it first came out.
Just like the disney movies, Nintendo games, Dexter's broken glass (lol) etc.

They come and they came.

I agree but the thing that i worry about most is what if Mugen get's shut down due to it having SOOOOOOOO much copyrighted material within it?

I wish it was more popular. We would probably have even more great content if more people joined the community.

First thing first, does MUGEN need to be famous? Question  To me, it is famous (or still famous) along with all the video games that have been converted to MUGEN in all those/these years. yes

In my opinion, as long as there are people who are into fighting games (and action games), with the Great Google/Yahoo/Bing online search engines and the Great YouTube/Dailymotion/Niconico online videos, when you try to search for something like "street fighter/king of fighters", the search result includes not only the "real-source" ones but also the MUGEN ones.

What I mean is that, since 80% of MUGEN contents are from video games (and even from movies/tv shows/comics/cartoons/manga/anime...etc.), and 20% are original works by brilliant creative people, unless all people quit their hobbies, MUGEN cannot be "un-famous" because more or less MUGEN has contents that might have been in people's hobbies.  Like, we have seen even some SCP contents in MUGEN! alien

The main concern I think should be that, we MUGEN people have to add more new contents to our MUGEN, then it will automatically get famous (sometimes infamous but oh well) due to the above online services.  Old contents work well as usual but without new contents, MUGEN can only attract the same groups of people.  So, more MUGEN diversity can boost up MUGEN's popularity for sure!   This the the reason why I usually make some MUGEN stuff that is either uncommon and "not the same thing over again and again".  Wink
