* The ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' series starts off pretty campy and cutesy, but overall takes itself seriously. This is what makes certain games like ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'' and ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVII'' so unusual, because they're quite depressing and dark (respectively) given their cutesy AkiraToriyama art-style.

* ''VideoGame/LegoCityUndercover'' is seemingly just another Lego game. But it has many refferences to movies and books that children aren't supposed to watch/read (James Bond, Harry Hole, Terminator, etc.), it also [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar gets a load of crap past the radar]], you get points from breaking things, a crime boss gets frozen to death (he is rebuilt, but still), a mook loses both hands, TheHero tortures a mook through brain freeze, and more. It is nicknamed ''Lego [[VideoGame/GrandTeftAuto]]'' for a reason and probably would have the same ratings if not for the lego style. And that the hero is a cop [[PoliceBrutality doesn't do it much better]]. It's a good game but still weird it got past the radar.

* ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' has a cute and colorful art style which is like a mix of ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' and '' VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' including cool music you could imagine being played on the radio. The story is that you're an {{Amnesiac|Hero}} ghost who tries to stop brutal murders and to find out who he is before sunrise. The characters are colorful and goofy, the humor is cheerful, and the game won a price for best animation. You save people by going {{4|IsDeath}} minutes before their death and stopping it doing [[BuffySpeak poltergeisty]] tricks. It also has a character reading an erotic novel out loud, a child murderer (albeit unwilling), a character dying from a realistic heart attack, several people being crushed, and more.

* ''WebComic/AxeCop'' uses a slightly-exaggerated but fairly realistic style a la most mainstream comic books. But since the plots are written by a six-year-old, the actual content of the comic is ''[[CrazyAwesome completely insane]]''.

* ''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.

* The anime adaptation of ''ViolinistOfHameln'', originally a parody manga, removes all the humor and plays the DysfunctionJunction for its full angst value, but keeps the art style.

* ''Webcomic/Skadi'' is filled to the brim with BlackComedy, NauseaFuel, and can be surprisingly action-packed in several of it's arcs. However, the comic's art style looks like a mix between Spumco and Cartoon Network.
