* ''Film/HardcoreHenry'' is a high-octane, fast-paced action film best known for being shot entirely from the first-person perspective of the main character. Unsurprisingly, it was influenced largely by FirstPersonShooter games.

* The Creator/{{Nintendo}} UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} was the console version of this when it first came out; the platform was sold not on the quality of its games, but on the fact that it had a unique control mechanism that utilized motion control. Although later games for the console moved away from the whole gimmick aspect, the original incarnation of the system and its early games were enough to be a massive seller for Nintendo. The UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}}'s Kinect and Sony's PlayStation Move also tried to utilize the same format, though with less success.

** The same also goes for the infamous ''Fanfic/LegolasByLaura'', which features notoriously poor spelling and a [[{{Narm}} narmy]] plot.
** ''Fanfic/MyInnerLife'' is renowned for its 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]]).

* ''Webcomic/AxeCop'' was pretty much sold on the fact that is was written by a 5-year-old.



** The UsefulNotes/WiiU also tried to do this with its Gamepad, but the reception for it (to date) has been lukewarm.

* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1'' was sold on and became popular for two aspects; One, it was a blistering fast game for its time, allegedly thanks to the brazenly marketed "Blast Processing" abilities of the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, and, to a lesser extent, for having a [[MascotWithAttitude light streak of edge to it]] that was lacking from the more vanilla VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld and Sega's own [[CaptainErsatz previous Mario wannabe]], Alex Kidd, while still having a bit of lighthearted cartoon appeal lacking from Sega's other arcade ports and more mature games for their console.

* There's this Flappy Bird clone called Tappy Chicken which, let's face it, nobody would play if it weren't for the fact that it's a TechDemoGame for the mobile app applications of the Unreal Engine.

* ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' is webcomic with substandard artwork, incoherent stories and a cast of bland Mary-sue characters. The comic's main draw is the fact that it provides a window into its creator's bizarre life.

* An '''actual''' dancing bear is used in this format in-universe on TheCritic. Jay's show is falling in the ratings and the set is converted to a rustic cabin appearance, complete with stuffed bear. Except [[TakeThat the hippies wouldn't accept a stuffed bear, so they just drugged him up.]] After it attacks Jay, it offers an apology by way of dancing a polka and moonwalk as he plays the concertina.

[[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.
