* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' was pretty mature for a show that aired on Cartoon Network for kids, making a strong PeripheryDemographic for teens and adults until it was cancelled in 2013. It's third season, ''Outsiders'', will air on DC's private streaming service after being {{Uncancelled}}, and will explore more mature themes and storylines as a result of having more creative freedom and that their audiences are over seven years older than when they first started.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' with respect to ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. This example is a bit more literal than most. If a 12-year-old kid watched ''A:TLA'' when it was first broadcast in 2005, they would start the first series at the same age as its protagonist, and finish ''LOK'' in 2014 at the same age as ''it's'' protagonist.

* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' was and still is a series intended for the shonen audience, but its anime has been running for so long that the audience reading it in 2003 will have long become young adults by 2013, with its anime following suit. While earlier anime arcs aired at standard viewing hours for children's shows, the nastier, bloodier arcs like Rakuyo that came in its later years aired at OtakuOClock, knowing full their audience would be able to see it despite the time shift.

* Creator/JohnKricfalusi tried this with ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy Adult Party Cartoon'', and didn't exactly get a positive response.

* The ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' video games have taken on more mature subjects in their storylines over the years as their original audience has now grown to adulthood. Later games deal with themes like whether or not capturing Pokemon counts as animal abuse, AbusiveParents, world overpopulation, alternate dimensions, broken families, over-worked employees, and more. The later villains are also far greater in threat and [[VileVillainSaccharineShow vileness]] than [[TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily Team Rocket]] from the earlier games. On another front, the games have slowly begun acknowledging the TournamentPlay scene in-universe, to cater to the younger players who got into competitive battling as they grew up. Later games add AntiFrustratingFeatures aimed specifically at competitive players.

* Creator/JKRowling intentionally wrote the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series to encompass more mature and scarier themes as the young readers got a little older for each book. This is also reflected in the other media of the franchise: The film adaptations, from ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' (where Harry turns 14) onward, would receive 12A/PG-13 ratings instead of PG. Later on, both ''Theatre/CursedChild'' and ''Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'' have adult protagonists and adult conflicts (contrast the depiction of child neglect/abuse in ''Philosopher's Stone'' and ''Fantastic Beasts'').
