** ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' and ''Lilo and Stitch 2: Stich has a Glitch'' revolve almost entirely around AdultFear. Additionally the primary theme is grief and loss and most of the characters are major [[TheWoobie woobies.]]

** ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is a major, major contender for this, despite having a bodycount of only 2 minor characters (the King and Queen), and the villains punished justly without death. The film features childhood trauma, dead parents, murderous noblemen, a comic relief character that spends the movie dreaming about what would kill him, and the entire cast nearly dying [[spoiler:in a massive snowstorm near the end]].

** A good portion of WesternAnimation/WallE takes place in a [[CrapsackWorld dark, trashed covered]] earth. Not to mention the main character is completely alone. His only company is a cockroach. He then finds himself on a [[CrapsaccharineWorld colorful starship]] full of apathetic obese people.

* 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''.
