* ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', despite on paper being completely RatedMForManly, has a large female fanbase due to its plethora of diverse, strong and {{Badass}} women who each get a good deal of focus as independent characters. Creator/CharlizeTheron's Furiosa has been hailed by critics and audiences as possibly the greatest action movie heroine since [[Film/{{Aliens}} Ellen Ripley]] and, for all intents and purposes, is treated as the real hero of the movie over Creator/TomHardy's [[SupportingProtagonist Max]].

* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' is ostensibly aimed at children (a person at Watterson's syndicate once referred to it as ''the ''ComicStrip/{{Doonesbury}}'' for kids''). Despite this, since it's very inception it's had a HUGE amount of adult & teenaged fans, who find it well-written, funny, and witty.

** Of course, given that a LOT of jokes and social commentary in the series would be incomprehensible to most young readers, it might be more accurate to say the demographic is "anyone who loves great sequential art".

Also some fans within a show's main demographic, may consider the work in question a guilty pleasure.

** ComicBook/HarleyQuinn managed to become one of the biggest {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s in the DC Universe, in large part, because she turned out to be ''far'' more popular among women than her creators ever anticipated--despite first appearing in [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries a TV show aimed mainly at boys]]. While most people liked her for being the Joker's AffablyEvil PerkyFemaleMinion with all of his humor but none of his evil, many women sympathized with her because they recognized her as a battered victim of {{domestic abuse}} corrupted by the influence of her {{bastard boyfriend}}. Her appeal just got stronger when she migrated to the comics, and eventually ''did'' [[CharacterDevelopment end up becoming independent from the Joker]]. Ever since then, her fans have celebrated her as [[GirlsNeedRoleModels a symbol of female empowerment]].

* Bizarre, but perhaps inevitable in a secular age: Many entertainments with explicitly religious themes that were previously attacked by Christians as being blasphemous are now widely popular with those critics' older selves, or with younger generations within that demographic, because they are now viewed as TheMoralSubstitute. Christian leaders now encourage their flocks to see ''JesusChristSuperstar'' (previously aimed at hippies and other hipsters)[[note]]It helps that a core message of the story is that people, even at the time, misunderstood what Jesus was saying and intended, that the 1970/73 version (the best known) goes full JesusWasWayCool, and most of the theologically "objectionable" material is only that if you have very specific views on the nature of Jesus that not all Christians hold[[/note]] and ''TheExorcist'' (previously aimed at horror fans); when Creator/MelGibson's ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist'' was released in 2004, one pastor even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this, acknowledging that he was begging his parishioners to see a graphically violent, R-rated movie.
