* The Mexican animated film ''Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos'' seems at first glance to be just an average film that'd be reasonably respectable in its home country. Its wide US release, however, is mind-boggling. Here we have a CGI film starring talking animals that resembles a kid pic but got a PG-13 rating for its US release, likely due to cultural differences in that Mexican humor is a bit more relaxed with standards than US humor. On top of that, the film is not being dubbed for its American release, it will be Spanish with English subtitles. How likely is it anyone will want to see a kiddie-looking PG-13 animated flick in Spanish? ([[SleeperHit and yet it cracked the weekend top 10,]] [[https://www.thewrap.com/mexicos-un-gallo-con-muchos-huevos-hits-bulls-eye-at-box-office/ playing in less than 400 theaters]]...)

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' is so notorious for its ContinuityLockout, that fans of the comic trying and inevitably failing to get their peers interested in reading it has become a meme unto itself[[note]]"LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT HOMESTUCK."[[/note]]. This is mostly due to the sheer size of the project (8127 pages in total when it ''finally'' finished, which vary in length from single images to WallOfText chat logs to ''interactive UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash games''); the complexity of the plot making it impossible to explain to the uninitiated; and the video game-centric nature of it. Additionally, in order fully get all the jokes, it is almost a prerequisite that you read the three comics that came before it: ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'', which is a monumental read in and of itself, ''Bard Quest'', an unfinished experiment, and ''Webcomic/{{Jailbreak}}'', the first, and as a consequence the least polished of all the creator's work. And on top of all this, in order to reach the parts anyone talks about, you have to read through a good 1500 pages of buildup; even the ''fanbase'' jokes about how slow and boring the first two chapters are.

* Arithmetic's ''Bidding for Love'' is infamous for its main premise. The main character is sold to a rich man through an auction and he exercises his right to do whatever he wants to the heroine, including having sex with her that she doesn't fully consent to. It only gets worse when it's later revealed that her company set her up to be sold and they erased her existence from the company. Not to mention her eventually falling in love with the man who initially forced himself onto her. If this wasn't a romance game, it could work as an episode for a crime drama.

* ''ComicBook/FuryMax'' was part of the ComicBook/MarvelMax line and featured a DarkerAndEdgier and BloodierAndGorier story of Fury looking at his last days as an agent of a post-Cold War era S.H.I.E.L.D. that presented Fury as a BloodKnight. Most notably, the detractors of this included Fury co-creator Creator/StanLee and actor/GeorgeClooney, who was in talks to play Fury in the movie when the series was released and dropped out precisely because of the series, both expressing disgust at certain scenes, including [[spoiler:Fury disemboweling BigBad Rudi Gagarin and strangling his with his own intestines.]]
