* The WesternAnimation/DCUniverseAnimatedOriginalMovies is a line of animated movies aimed for older comic fans. Tellingly, [[WesternAnimation/SupermanDoomsday the first movie out of the gate]] was an adaptation of ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman''. At times, the AnimatedAdaptation [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns of]] ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' got darker than the comic it's based on, and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheKillingJoke'' [[http://www.ew.com/article/2016/04/14/batman-killing-joke-animated-rated-r will be rated "R"]], [[http://www.ibtimes.com/next-batman-film-killing-joke-could-be-first-r-rating-2136098 which Warner Brothers is okay with.]] and it takes after the 20th Anniversary SpecialEdition in its more subdued coloring, Batman lacking the yellow oval around the batsymbol on his costume, and Joker crying TearsOfBlood during his first laugh.

** ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' is this to the original ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''; with Dory now experiencing very serious cases of ParentalAbandonment and many of her quirks from the original film now being PlayedForDrama.

** The first film was also an example in comparison to most other DreamWorksAnimation films at the time, which were mostly pure comedy while ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' is an ''action''/comedy with some pretty serious drama thrown in as well. Even the comedy is a bit more mature, with Dreamworks dropping the pop-culture jokes that they had been previously known for. This is a trend that would later be continued by ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon''.

** ''The Hunchback of Notre Dame'', despite getting a G rating, is just as dark. The whole story is driven by the villain's sexual obsession with one of the female protagonists, and a number of darker themes - including lust and [[TheFundamentalist religious fanaticism]] - are shown. For that matter, the page image is from a scene very early in the film where [[BigBad Frollo]] tries to ''drown baby Quasimoto'' solely because of his deformities, right after killing his mother. It's still LighterAndSofter than [[Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame the original book]], however.
