* The ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}'' series is colorful, cartoony, and filled with beautifully subtle details. The battle screens suggest you're fighting during a psychadelic trip-out, and the characters almost look like they're from a stylized {{Peanuts}} comic. And, implicitly and thematically speaking, it's probably the darkest Nintendo has ever gotten.

* You'd be forgiven if you thought ''WesternAnimation/EightCrazyNights'' was a kids' movie just by looking at it's {{Disneyesque}} art-style.

* Some of the worlds in ''FireEmblem'' come off as this way. The GameBoyAdvance entries mostly being this due to the artstyle being bright and colorful as a result of the SP model not being standardized for most of the runs. (Not so much in 8) Some of the DarkerAndEdgier entries likewise have a darker artstyle, ''especially'' "New Mystery" and "Awakening".

* ''Anime/OsomatsuSan''. While the original manga is a Shonen and the characters in -San are still drawn as wacky and cartoonish as it gets, the anime airs late at night in Japan and most episodes have enough sex/nudity jokes that wouldn't let it pass as a kid's show.

** Works by the artist Imizu tend to be drawn in a very serious, half realistic and highly detailed style that usually contains absolute comedic madness.

* This is the main criticism of ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger''. It's a mostly grounded SliceOfLife however Klasky-Csupo's art style is... controversial, to say the least. It comes off as unappealing looking or unfitting to many people.
* Creator/TerryGilliam's animations for ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' married images collated from early 20th Century shopping catalogues and similar found art from the period 1890-1920, with some very distinctly 1960's-70's surrealism. The collision of style and content makes them oddly memorable.

* ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' has a fairly simplistic art style that feels like something out of modern Cartoon Network. However, it is a ''very'' [[BlackComedy dark adult comedy]], filled to the brim with [[{{Squick}} content that's not entirely for the faint of heart]].

* ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' is full of profanity, adult humor, and ''plenty'' of NightmareFuel. Yet, it looks like something you would expect out of ether Disney, Pixar, or Dreamworks.

* Creator/JunjiIto is a noted horror author with a distinctive style that fits very well with the genre of his work. This style doesn't change in the slightest when he writes ''Manga/ItoJunjiNoNekoNikki'', a comedy manga about his cats.

* ''Manga/BarefootGen''. It looks like a Saturday Morning Cartoon in the vein of ''Anime/AstroBoy''. [[TearJerker It isn't]].

* ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'' looks like a normal shonen mecha series but it's far, far darker than normal and is a seinen.

* ''VisualNovel/LiarLiar'' is a very cute looking, PuniPlush style visual novel with lots of bright colors. It's also a gorey game about a [[VillainProtagonist middle school girl]] trying to kill her boyfriend.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' is a brightly colored, chibi-style cartoon spinoff that seems like a LighterAndSofter reboot to the 2003 ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''.. So why the TV-PG rating, especially since the original was TV-Y7? Watch a few episodes and you'll quickly notice it lacks NeverSayDie, thrives of BlackHumor, and has a lot more [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar risqué content]].
