* [[FurryFandom Furry]] Webcomics in general tend to be received unfavorably by outsiders and critics, but do extremely well with their intended audience.

* ''Webcomic/CtrlAltDel''. Despite, or perhaps [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity because of]], the group of detractors that the webcomic and its proprietor accrued, it maintains a solid following

* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'': Mostly for being ''purposeful'' HamAndCheese, with prestigious actors such as ChristopherEccleston and JosephGordonLevitt realizing just how cheesy it was and deciding to eat all the scenery in sight.

* Music/BillyJoel has been known to have been savaged critically, [[ItsPopularNowItSucks at least at the height of his success]], but according to Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} has sold 150 million albums worldwide as of 2013. His 1978 album ''52nd Street'' (which bears the distinction of being the first album mass-manufactured for CompactDisc in 1982) won the UsefulNotes/GrammyAward for ''Album of the Year'', he's a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and many of hs hits have become standards.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars 2}}'' is {{Creator/Pixar}}'s worst-reviewed animated film (currently in the below 40% range at Website/RottenTomatoes), but that hasn't stopped the film from making huge bucks at the box office (though it ''was'' Pixar's lowest-grossing movie at the box office until WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur came along). The {{WesternAnimation/Cars}} franchise managed to make a whopping [[CashCowFranchise ten billion dollars]] in merchandise, although they're [[RedheadedStepchild not as liked as other Pixar works]].

* ''Film/WildWildWest''. Not just critic-proof, but participant-proof as well. Even star Creator/WillSmith and director Creator/BarrySonnenfeld said they realized the movie was crap. It didn't stop it from making a ton of money.

It didn't stop it from making a ton of money. Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone claim that part of the reason was that underage teens who couldn't buy tickets for ''Film/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' bought tickets for ''WWW'' to get in the theaters then sat down to see their film instead.

* Creator/GeoffJohns is another example. A lot of his work (save for ''ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}'') has been critically panned, but it still usually sells huge numbers. His ''ComicBook/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}}'' relaunch with Jim Lee is a good example; trashed by critics, and yet still one of the best-selling comics of its year.

* ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist'' had a downplayed case of this: it got mixed critical reception, but became the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time in the U.S. and third-highest such movie internationally after ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded'' and ''Film/Deadpool2016'', both which received significantly better reviews, especially ''Deadpool''.

* Big events and {{Crisis Crossover}}s in general. No matter how poor the reviews and fan reaction are, these tend to be the best-selling superhero comics of the entire year whenever they're released. When asked at a convention panel Creator/MarvelComics keeps putting out massive crossovers despite fans saying they're sick of them, a rep from the company simply shrugged and said that they'll stop doing event crossovers when people stop buying them in droves.

* The live-action ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' movies (the latter three in particular) have received nothing but hate from most critics. That hasn't stopped either from being huge successes... at least until the last one was scheduled for the same release date as ''Film/TheForceAwakens''.
