* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' was created as an adult comedy like ''Film/{{Stripes}}''. However, the film instantly took off with kids who loved the film as a fun fantasy movie of ScienceHero protagonists who took on the stuff of nightmares with AwesomeBackpack weapons. As such not only was ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' SaturdayMorningCartoon show commissioned, but ''Film/GhostbustersII'' had the heroes stop smoking to set a good example for kids.

** ''Disney/RobinHood'', ''Disney/TheRescuers'' and ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' were on their initial release (and to this day still are) very popular films within the [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom Furry community]]. ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' is also very popular with this demographic.

A very noticeable instance of this occurs in the anime fansub community. Digital recorders/encoders, which effectively remove the timeslot and language constraints to a program, make it accessible to anyone, and the series audience is largely drawn only by the perceived quality of the show itself. For this reason, [[{{shoujo}} a show packed with girls]] is enough like "[[BishoujoSeries a show packed with girls]]" that may be enjoyed by the same fan, even if that fan is wildly different than the 'original' one. This likewise holds with male characters, who are often deliberately drawn as [[{{bishounen}} pretty boys]] in order to attract fangirls who were reading similar stories anyway (e.g., ''BishonenJumpSyndrome'', because ''Magazine/ShonenJump'' was infamous for it). Sometimes this is taken a step further and you get a SelectiveSquick-cleansed [[AudienceShift rough adaptation of the premise]] marketed directly to ''them''.

* In the world of toys, there's {{LEGO}}. While the iconic building bricks are marketed to kids, there's a number of adults who make a hobby of them as well. LEGO has seemed to thoroughly embrace this demographic; scale LEGO models and the people who design and build them are showcased in the Legoland theme parks, and there's a downloadable program for home model design and purchase. And then there's the LEGO themes with nostalgia value, like ''Lego Franchise/StarWars'' and ''Lego Franchise/IndianaJones''. Even the in-house ''{{Franchise/Bionicle}}'' line has its own Periphery Demographic. And then there's a host of online webcomics using LEGO, such as ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic''.

* Creator/AdultSwim's Creator/{{Toonami}}. The action programming block is meant to target a teenage/adult male audience with various RatedMForManly action shows. However, the programming block also had attracted a female audience as well. This is mainly because many of the anime aired in Creator/{{Toonami}} such as ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', ''Anime/KillLaKill'', ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', ''Manga/InuYasha'', ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', and ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' features female protagonists with [[PluckyGirl strong, assertive personalities]], and the fact that some of the shows features {{bishonen}}s that have become fan favorites for the female audience (such as [[EnsembleDarkhorse Levi]] from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. The Toonami crew has acknowledge their growing female audience, and is considering airing anime targeting for a female audience (with ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' being one of the most requested anime titles for Toonami, which is a {{shoujo}} title).
