** Almost any film from Creator/{{Laika}} can be included. ''WesternAnimation/TheBoxtrolls'' and ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman'' also under-performed domestically, and needed the worldwide box office to break even. Both were very well-received by critics though, and were nominated for Academy Awards. The only Laika films to make back their budget domestically are ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}''.

* The Creator/DarrenAronofsky film ''mother!'' has opened to roundly positive reviews, but has only made $7.5 million in its opening weekend beneath ''Film/{{It|2017}}'' and ''American Assassin''. It also earned a rare Cinemascore of F from audiences, who sought out the latter films instead.

* ''Vicki Fox'' is one of the three only web comics to ever get [[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Vicki_Fox a positive review]] on the Bad Webcomics Wiki. However, [[http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vickifox.com if you type the name of the comic on Alexa,]] you will find out that the comic is read just as much as the average web comic victim of SturgeonsLaw.
* The same is also true of ''WebComic/ForestHill'' which also has a positive review on the bad web comics wiki, which praises it for dealing with adult subjects in a mature and not over-the-top way, but it is nowhere near as well known as ''WebComic/JackDavidHopkins'', which the review contrasts ''Forest Hill'' with as an example of how not to do an adult FurryWebComic.

* ''Kit Kittredge: An American Girl'', a film based on the eponymous [[Franchise/AmericanGirlsCollection American Girl]] character, was released to mostly positive reception, but it didn't fare well at the box office as theatres didn't want to gamble on another "doll movie" following the release of ''Film/{{Bratz}}''.

* ''VideoGame/RaymanOrigins'' and its sequel ''VideoGame/RaymanLegends'' were universally praised but didn't sell very well, probably due to the fact that ExecutiveMeddling dictated that they be released around the same time as ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' and ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', respectively.

The latter may have been pushed out of this status by sheer amount of re-releasing on new consoles though.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''VideoGame/RhythmHeaven'' series, the only one to sell well outside of Japan is ''Rhythm Heaven'' for the Nintendo DS, even though all of them pleased critics and the few who bought them for their charm. ''Rhythm Heaven Fever'' flopped despite being for the ever popular Wii, while the English version of ''Rhythm Heaven Megamix'' was announced on the day of its release and is digital-only...and is also a poor seller. The most common explanation behind ''Rhythm Heaven Fever'''s underwhelming sales is that its marketing and box art makes it look like a minigame compilation on a system that was already totally overloaded with them, and the reduced price made it look like {{shovelware}}. Some parts of the game became [[MemeticMutation memetic]], but memes do not sell a game. ''Rhythm Heaven Megamix'' did not succeed due to InvisibleAdvertising and interest in rhythm games having mostly evaporated in North America and Europe. Averted in Japan, where it was made, however, where they sell well enough that pop musicians and their songwriters make songs just for this series.

Every once in a while, some work will leave a big mark in the mind of audiences. The {{reviews|AreTheGospel}} [[FourPointScale won't give it a score under 9/10]], those who saw/read/played it almost unanimously love it, and the work is acclaimed for its originality, unique artistic touch, [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic beautiful soundtrack]], etc. Everything is perfect except for one thing: few people bought/watched it. Despite its huge critical success, the work is snubbed in the stores or cinemas and only avoids fading away from public view entirely by virtue of its acclaim.
