. 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.

** On the other hand, Studio Nue (The owners of the ''Macross'' franchise) are notorious for recently using CGI for many of their recent series, like ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', ''Anime/GenesisOfAquarion'' and ''Anime/AquarionEvol'', but only for the robots.

* Every shot of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' has detail unheard of even for anime. Thus, Aaron [=McGruder=] has produced only 3 seasons in 5 years.
** The same can be said for ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', though the detail isn't nearly the same. What also deserves mentioning is that while most shows have a significant staff of writers, ''every episode but one'' was written by creator Jackson Publick and/or Doc Hammer.
*** Another example from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''; Publick and Hammer, during the long hiatus between seasons one and two had worked out exactly how to open the show, seeing as [[spoiler:Both Hank and Dean were dead]]. A montage, set to the song "Everybody's Free" by Aquagen and Rozalla. The problem was, to license it would cost a seventh of the budget--not for that episode, the ''entire second season.'' To which the creators said "WorthIt."

* ''Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip'': Despite being an SNL ripoff, most of the writers on this metaseries are making quality "cutting-edge political and social satire".

* Popular IDM techno duo ''{{Autechre}}'' pride themselves on this trope. They're talented enough to create successful mainstream sounding albums, and at first, that's what they were doing. However, the group has always been about studying and experimenting with the art of sound and noise, resulting in some pretty noise heavy albums that sound like garble to anyone not familiar with their way of creating tracks. For example: Listen to their earlier tracks like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqKZAxvNEfc Montreal]]. And then compare that to their later tracks like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1RrVa_axRY Gartz Garf]] In fact, the groups is on record saying that they prefer their later albums instead of their earlier mainstream sounding ones.

** Miyazaki's former boss and fellow Creator/StudioGhibli director IsaoTakahata fits this trope even more. Takahata only makes films when he wants to (he didn't make another film after 1999 until ''fourteen years'' later with ''The Tale of Princess Kaguya''), and tends to take subjects way out in left field whenever he does make a film. He also doesn't seem to care about targeting demographics, thus we end up with ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'', ''Anime/PomPoko'', and ''Anime/OnlyYesterday''.

* This is the core and bedrock of Octavia Philharmonica's character in FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse. When she becomes Princess Luna's Court Musician, her joy comes not primarily from the wealth and fame the position brings, but from the fact that there is no audience in the world with more experience of classical music and more ability to understand and appreciate her work and from the fact that as Luna's Court Musician she has the time and resources to learn fields of music she would never otherwise even have heard of.
** In ''The Court Musician Of Equestria'', Octavia is contrasted with Thrash Metail. Where Octavia is devoted to music, Thrash just wants fame and fortune, as shown by his willingness to resort to [[spoiler: mind-control spells to make his audiences believe that his work was good]]. This becomes clearest in the final confrontation between the two of them, where [[spoiler: Octavia asks if any of his music from before he found the Guitar of the Sirens still survives, stating that if he ever was, even in the slightest, a true musician, he'd want to be remembered for his own work, however mediocre it might be. Thrash replies that he burnt the records. They didn't bring him fame and glory, so they were worthless to him]].
