* This has somewhat occurred with hand-drawn animation in general. Other than TV, the medium has rarely had a shot in theaters since the mid 2000s and any [[WesternAnimation/ThePrincessAndTheFrog attempts]] [[WesternAnimation/WinnieThePooh otherwise]] have largely failed. With the rise of internet streaming and the GKIDS release of ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfKells'' however, hand-drawn features have seen a revival in the indie and underground markets which[[note]]of course[[/note]] [[PeripheryDemographic are made up of adults and animation enthusiasts alike regardless of the film's intended audience]].

* The infamous anime version of ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' was aimed at a male audience, moreso than the manga was. Its emphasis on sexual fanservice at the expense of the original plot of the manga was a cause of outrage among fans.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' is meant to appeal to the older teens and fans as the 20th anniversary, and [[DarkerAndEdgier it shows]]. Many fans were surprised it [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar didn't get the E10+ rating]]. It includes adult themes such as heavy parental abuse (worse than in Black & White), an AlienInvasion and the world turning [[CrapsaccharineWorld Crapsaccharine]] as well as lots of NightmareFuel.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' was an Creator/CartoonNetwork series which aired on 2001 to 2004. When the show was revived for a fifth and final season, it aired on sister channel {{Creator/AdultSwim}}'s {{Creator/Toonami}} programming block. As the name of the channel implies, this season is aimed towards adult fans who grew up with the series and is by equal turns DarkerAndEdgier, BloodierAndGorier, and HotterAndSexier than the original series.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' arguably went from a sci-fi series with adults in mind to a [[LighterAndSofter version more suitable for children]] starting with ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''; children have been a large PeripheryDemographic of the series since its release.

''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' definitely shifted the opposite direction, towards a teen/adult focus. This film took the DarkerAndEdgier route as far as it could possibly go, becoming the first PG-13 Star Wars.

* Creator/{{Toonami}}, originally aired during the daytime on Creator/CartoonNetwork with programs aimed at kids and pre-teens. When it was UnCanceled, it received a new placement after the {{watershed}} on Creator/AdultSwim. Though in a odd twist, at least half of what the midnight block airs is still content that would be suitable for a preteen audience on Cartoon Network (albeit with slight editing for American-Japan ValuesDissonance), if not for the fact that action/adventure animation has been deemed a dead genre by children' television networks in TheNewTens.

* Creator/{{Toonami}}, originally aired during the daytime with programs aimed at kids and pre-teens. When it was UnCanceled, it received a new placement after the {{watershed}} on Creator/AdultSwim. It's still aimed at the exact same group of people, who have simply aged since watching Toonami as kids, meaning the block simply grew with its audience. In this day and age, Western action-oriented cartoons aired during kid-friendly hours get dropped like a bad habit ''especially'' on Creator/CartoonNetwork (case in point, Creator/DCNation) and less of them are being made than in the 1990s-early 2000s. As for the anime side of things, it can feel as if almost every potentially suitable show for Cartoon Network, outside of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' and certain MerchandiseDriven shows, has content that would have been easier to air back when Toonami was first airing than it is now, due to ValuesDissonance between what's acceptable for American kids and Japanese kids. As for why Toonami now only airs after dark, it was probably deemed easier for the block to be aired at a later time than to argue with angry parents and Cartoon Network's Standards & Practices department.
