Added DiffLines:

*While ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' is profitable to the publisher ''nowadays'', it took quite a while to get there. It took even longer for Creator/StevenErikson to even find a publisher who was willing to take the entire series as planned, because it was such a massive undertaking and he wasn't willing to compromise. Erikson is citing his frustration with the publishing system's aversion to risk taking in the preface of ''Literature/GardensOfTheMoon''.
--> Ambition is not a dirty word. Piss on compromise. Go for the throat. Write with balls, write with eggs. Sure, it's a harder journey but take it from me, it's well worth it.

But sometimes, there are shows which transcend the profit motive. It's not necessarily the case that they're good shows, but someone obviously cared a ''lot'' about it and put their absolute all in. There are details which, frankly, make no sense for the [[StrictlyFormula genre formula]]. Why bother having [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague a superhero show that has accurate Nazi war equipment]]? Why write a book set in a fantasy universe with accurate descriptions of Medieval fashion? Why include hours of speech in [[{{Conlang}} made-up languages]]? Why devote hours of expensive CGI work [[Film/TheSocialNetwork to making the twin brothers in a corporate drama look identical]]? Why, when you know simply from the brand name alone a product is going to make massive moolah, bother working at all, why not just [[TheyJustDidntCare phone it in and take a long nap?]]

The same motive appears in a far less benign (and more explosive) form in ForSCIENCE.

* A lot of cartoons from UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation invoke this trope, especially Creator/{{Disney}}, Creator/{{MGM}} and Creator/WarnerBros.

* {{Trance}} musicians pride themselves on this, knowing well how dedicated their fans are to their material. In fact, many of the scene's biggest names have had very long, illustrious and very busy careers and they've all stated their biggest drive is their passion for the genre. Music/ArminVanBuuren is noted for having won the title of "Number 1 DJ in the World" for a record number of five times and has admitted he could retire early after [[LongRunner a career that's gone on since the nineties]] but has stated he feels like he's only just begun to scratch the surface.

* Creator/MamoruOshii, who is known for making bizarre, off-kilter films notorious for being disorientingly complex and [[ContemplateOurNavels EXTREMELY contemplative]]. He became enmeshed in disputes over "artistic differences" in [[Manga/UruseiYatsura his FIRST PROJECT]], and since then has never made a movie that was about anything other than what he damn well felt like (which makes [[Anime/HaloLegends his latest endeavor]] all the more baffling...).

* Musical numbers in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' contain elaborate instrumentation andrhymes, as well as a handful of {{Genius Bonus}}es that only make sense to one well-versed in musical terminology. For instance, how many eight-year-olds are going to recognize the {{Foreshadowing}} at the end of "BBBFF"?

* FrankZappa made music for his own amusement, but managed to have a successful career because he was so hardworking and labels supported him. He was neither a rock star or an avant-garde jazz composer, he was just himself.
