See also ComeForTheXStayForTheY, when the work has a lot more going on than ''just'' a bear that dances, and JustHereForGodzilla, for cases where that happens, but the audience doesn't care. See also OvershadowedByControversy, where a Dancing Bear is especially well-known for controversial moments regardless of other factors.

* The budget fighting game ''[[http://www.ign.com/games/fight-of-the-gods Fight of Gods]]'' probably would have been an obscure footnote were it not for the fact that one of the playable characters is none other than [[Literature/TheBible Jesus Christ]], which almost instantly catapulted it to internet infamy.

* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' (like ''Roger Rabbit'') also sold itself on the fact that it was cameo-laden, and only featuring video game characters this time.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' is mostly remembered for it's ''[[DevelopmentHell extremely]]'' [[DevelopmentHell long]] and TroubledProduction.

* ''Film/{{Boyhood}}'' is a pretty standard SliceOfLife film about life and growing up. The real draw is the fact is purposely took over ''ten years'' to produce as it averted TimeShiftedActors and was filmed at different points using the same actors. So when we see six year old Mason grow into an adult we really are seeing his actor transform from a child into a man.
* ''Film/CarryOnCamping'' is mostly remembered for Barbara Windor's character's bikini top flying off and hitting Creator/KennethWilliams in the face. [[SarcasmMode It's a wonder why it's the most successful movie in the film series...]]

* ''Film/{{Fitzcarraldo}}'' is best-known simply because of its TroubledProduction, and the fact that you're really watching people moving a ship through the jungle, even using techniques more difficult than the ones of the real event it's based on.

* Creator/HeathLedger's last film, ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus''. Ledger only managed to film half of his role before dying, and Creator/ColinFarrel, Creator/JudeLaw and Creator/JohnnyDepp were brought in to play the character when he was in an AlternateDimension. Quite a few people watched the film [[JustHereForGodzilla just to see if they could pull it off]].

* At the time it was released, ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'' piqued its premiere audience's interest for being a film made on a dare between an actual filmmaker and a manure salesman. Said salesman used a single camera to record all of the footage in the film, and hired a man (John Reynolds) to play a satyr using special prosthetics. Of course, the film became infamous for how bad it was, and later received new interest for being one of the worst films ever screened on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. It was also notable for being [[OneBookAuthor the only role Reynolds (Torgo) made]] - he [[AuthorExistenceFailure killed himself]] a month before the film opened.

* ''Film/{{Primer}}'' is mostly well known for having NoBudget and being made by an engineer rather than anyone with a film-making background. And being impenetrably confusing.

* ''Film/{{Tiptoes}}'' wouldn't be nearly as well-known as it is were it not for its absurd teaser trailer that attempts to make a serious drama about dwarfism into a romantic comedy from the 90's, the TroubledProduction or Creator/GaryOldman's out-of-turn performance as a dwarf (complete with prosthetics).

* The "unholy trinity," ''WesternAnimation/WatershipDown,'' ''Literature/ThePlagueDogs,'' and ''WesternAnimation/Felidae.'' Three animated films known almost solely for masquerading as kid's films before surprising you with copious amounts of death, gore and in the latter, a graphic sex scene with ''cats.''

* Abstract paintings have occasionally sold for respectable sums because, and only because, they were painted by apes or elephants.

* ''Anime/GhostStories'' became this when it was localized in the west. Due to the localizers having no set limitations for what they could or couldn't do, they let the voice actors improvise almost the entire performance while still following the basic story. Leading to an officially licensed GagDub.

Added DiffLines:

** ''RNG Plays Pokemon'', which was effectively just the Fish version, but much faster, [[{{Dissimile}} and without the fish]].
* Blindfolded {{speedrun}}s. Inevitably, these are slower than un-blindfolded ones, but are still popular for the novelty of watching someone try to beat a ''video'' game while unable to see anything, and for [[https://youtu.be/ABIXOsJcq2Y?t=4m52s bizarre problems that can come up]].
