* Similarly, the ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' series fell into this for a number of uninformed parents. Diablo is the name of the SatanicArchetype that the player is meant to fight, the BigBad of all three games, and the FinalBoss outside of expansion packs. The player, as a holy warrior or even a [[{{Nephilim}} nephalem]], is charged with destroying him. This hasn't stopped a few from claiming the entire series is meant to drive people into worshiping Satan.

* Music/TheBeatles got plenty of flak just for [[RockMeAsmodeus being a rock band]]. But then Creator/CharlesManson found some "call to arms" messages in ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum'', and before you know it, Creator/RomanPolanski's wife is dead. A rare case where the people claiming it was evil were not the MoralGuardians, but rather, a SerialKiller {{cult}}. "Helter Skelter" got it the worst, given the Manson family even painted it on the walls. Despite the proto-metal sound, the song is about an amusement park ride. Or, well, a relationship being ''like'' an amusement park ride, where that ride is a long spiral slide. Which is possibly the most mundane relationship metaphor ever imagined.

** A [[Webcomics/RageComics rage comic]] [[http://ragecomics.memebase.com/2012/04/20/rage-comics-evolution-is-inappropriate/ here]] chronicles the author's supposed encounter with the trope (obviously, take it with a grain of salt); a DJ refuses to play the Pokémon theme song, because some people find it anti-religious, but has no problems with playing sexist rap.

* Parody sites like Christ Wire play with this a lot. For example, in their analysis of ''Series/{{Glee}}'', they accuse the straight Glee club teacher of turning kids into homosexuals because he dances and sings a lot, and they also criticize it for encouraging kids to "have fun in the arts" instead of pursuing "real" careers. They skip over all the show's much more obvious attacks on the Christian Right -- like the fact that the celibacy club president becomes pregnant, or the way her ultra-conservative, GlennBeck-loving parents throw her out of the house when they find out. Even better is their article where they accuse ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' of turning "a generation of American boys into homosexuals."

This is often used by religious fundamentalists against any story where the powers are explicitly referred to as "magic". The basis of the argument is that, in real life, MagicIsEvil (because -- according to beliefs of some religious people -- it is something you can only use if you make a DealWithTheDevil), so naturally all stories which feature magic are meant to indoctrinate readers into getting involved with actual witchcraft (even if the in-universe magic has nothing to do with real-life occult beliefs.)

** Some books actually ''do'' include ceremonial and RitualMagic information. The ''entire'' Goetia (Lesser Key of Solomon) made it into ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' in 1986. Minus the sigils, fortunately.

** This has caused other game companies (like ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' publisher Palladium Books) to place a disclaimer in all their books stating that their books [[ThisIsAWorkOfFiction are works of fiction]] and they don't condone the supernatural or occultism.

** Not to mention one blogger that accused the show of being racist (due to the two dark-colored pony guards at the foot of Celestia's throne) and Rainbow Dash of being a lesbian (simply because of her mane and [[LesbianJock her love of athletics]]), and saying that books won't get you anywhere in life and you need authority figures to tell you how to be happy (completely ignoring the fact that Twilight Sparkle's book knowledge more often than not gives vital information to the characters). After reading it, one gets the impression that the author did not watch past the end of the opening credits. Fortunately, Lauren found out about the blog post and fired back with one that addressed every concern and even criticized the original poster.

This actually ended piquing people's interests, which helped make the show as popular as it is now.

Expect a lot of sloppy research (especially YouFailLogicForever), DanBrowned, InsaneTrollLogic, CowboyBebopAtHisComputer, and CriticalResearchFailure among these people (many of whom believe that HollywoodSatanism is TruthInTelevision).
