* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=du0emDgJ-L4 This]] Creator/GamesWorkshop commercial is entirely too upbeat and kinda completely forgets the grimdark lore that makes for most of the games' appeal in the first place.

** {{Moe Anthropomorphi|sm}}sized [[EldritchAbomination Angel]] dolls (including a genderbent Tabris in a short skirt). If that's not your cup of tea, there's always the Creator/{{Sanrio}}-esque line of [[http://yurushito.jp Yurushito]] characters.



** Unit-01 got a bullet train designed after it, even featuring an area where riders can put themselves in the shoes of a pilot about to have an Eva battle. That's not the strange part; plenty of series get special collaborations with bullet trains for a quick redecorating. The strange part was its ''recursive'' collaboration-- it got adapted into a TransformingMecha for the ''Shinkalion'' series of ''kids toys'', the official reason being that Unit-01 represented [[CrossesTheLineTwice Father-son bonding]] with Shinji and Gendo the same way E5 Hayabusa did for the protagonist and his father (albeit ''much'' more healthy) in the ''Shinkalion'' anime.

** An adorable miniature keychain of the Asuka doll. Now you too can ignore your flesh-and-blood child for a stuffed toy. It even hangs like Asuka's mom!

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** {{Moe}} anthropomorphized [[EldritchAbomination Angel]] dolls (including a genderbent Tabris in a short skirt).
** Creator/StudioGainax have a reputation for being absolute marketing ''whores'' who will sell pretty much any merchandise and sex up their characters as much as necessary. There's even a Rei Ayanami soap dish.
** They still haven't made a Kaworu PEZ dispenser, which would be [[OffWithHisHead cool in a completely tasteless sort of way.]]
** Just to give you an idea of the horrors Gainax has unleashed, here's [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/astro-toy/2009-01-25/with-rob-bricken/evangelion-aerocat-ex a review]] of two catgirl figurines of Rei and Asuka which have generic anime faces, tiny underwear, and lovingly sculpted camel toes.

* Downplayed example:''Theatre/DearEvanHansen'' has a lot of marketing geared towards inspiring the audience, with the hashtag [[EngineeredHashtag "#YouWillBeFound"]] used often. This is based on the in-universe campaign "The Connor Project," and while the campaign ''does'' empower Evan, Connor's family, and thousands of others, it's still based around a major mischaracterization of a suicide victim, and Evan exploits this lie for attention.

* In mid-May 2018, Greenpeace collaborated with Studio 100 to license ''Maya the Bee'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATTzhv_GLW8 cigarettes]] in Belgium. This caused controversy with parents in Belgium, since kids were seen using the cigarettes in commercials.

* The use of Carnage in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}''. The series' producer stated Carnage is included because he and Comicbook/{{Venom}} are popular with kids, which is true, but horrifying when you remember what his comic counterpart does. The animated series and Ultimate universes in general tend to tone down the freakiness of the Symbiotes.
