* The ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books tended to get darker as they went along, which was no accident. Rowling set out to write a series that would grow up with its audience, and it was published over a decade -- so the same 10-year-olds expected to read ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone Philosopher's Stone]]'' were expected to be about 20 when they read ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]'', and ready for more mature fare. Naturally, this was entirely lost on a lot of concerned parents, leading to oodles of FanDumb and WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids. It started with a noticeable difference between ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban The Prisoner of Azkaban]]'' and ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire The Goblet of Fire]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Mavericks}}'', a very dark superhero web serial, relies heavily on RealityEnsues and the tropes of the superhero genre being brought into a world where people react to them realistically.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/ASimpleSurvey'' is a two-part series. The first part, ''A Simple Survey'', is mainly a collection of bizarre short stories with no apparent underlying theme. The second, ''A Simple Monitoring'', is also a collection of short stories... that are all games in which the losers (if they survive) are executed.

* All of the installments of ''Literature/TheAnderssons'' by Solveig Olsson-Hultgren touch some social injustices and other tougher issues. Nevertheless though, "Skärvor av kristall" arguably takes the cake with its portrayal of domestic abuse, suicide, antisemitism and an upcoming second world war.
