[[NonActorVehicle Featuring noteworthy non-actors in major roles]] (or celebrity guest stars for television episodes) can qualify something for this trope: we don't go to [[Film/TheHottieAndTheNottie movies with Paris Hilton in them]] to see how well she acts, after all. Particularly [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters large casts]], shockingly difficult productions, unique production methods... anything that's used to sell a work more than its actual content can qualify it for Bear status. TheOner is usually a Bear as well, and {{Live Episode}}s too. A TechDemoGame runs a high risk of being a bear, if the developers cannot balance its gimmick with good gameplay. Another type of Bear is TheItemNumber, especially if it ranks high on the {{Fanservice}} scale and/or features a very well-known "item girl" (or guy).

* Music/FooFighters released ''Music/SonicHighways'' in 2014. Though it was fairly well-reviewed overall, the main grab was that it featured eight songs about major cities recorded ''in said cities''. The accompanying documentary miniseries emphasized this point further.

* ''Woman's World'' by Graham Rawle is notable as it was created solely using clippings from old magazines. [[http://www.grahamrawle.com/womansworld/ More here.]]

* It really didn't matter how good ''Go Set a Watchman'' actually was; it was guaranteed to be a smash success purely out of the fact that it was only Harper Lee's second published book a full ''fifty-five years'' after she wowed the literary world with ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird''. You're rather more likely to find someone who knows that part, but not that ''Watchman'' was actually written first, and then Lee's agent suggested she do a book with the characters as kids instead.

* 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 the only role Reynolds (Torgo) made - he killed himself a month before the film opened.

** ''Fanfic/MyInnerLife'' is renowned for it's terrible writing and the rather... unusual behavior of its writer (among other things, she claims to completely believe the fanfiction [[DaydreamBeliever is a record of a second life she lives in an alternate dimension while she sleeps]] and [[FrivolousLawsuit claimed to copyright the fic to sue any detractors]]).

* The Literature/ComoranStrikeNovels jumped from relative obscurity to bestsellers after it turned out that their author was actually none other than Creator/JKRowling.

* ''MyImmortal'' is notable for being ''[[SoBadItsGood so unbelievably horrible]]'' that it circles around and approaches being a masterpiece from the other side. That is to say, the draw is not so much the content, so much as the legendary badness of the work itself. ** The same also goes for the infamous ''LegolasByLaura'', which features notoriously poor spelling and a [[{{Narm}} narmy]] plot.
