Themes are not a definite indicator either: while most Shōnen works (particularly the [[FightingSeries action fighter types]]) tend to fall in the [[TheIdealist idealist side]] on the [[SlidingScaleofIdealismVersusCynicism scale of idealism vs. cynicism]], there are also plenty of works with DarkerAndEdgier elements and outright {{Deconstruction}}s that can easily be mistaken for a {{Seinen}} series and evoke a WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids reaction (''Manga/DeathNote'' and ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' are some of the notable examples).

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' adaptions are occasionally mistaken as shonen due to heavy emphasis on fighting and a protagonist heavily remeniscent of [[StockShonenHero stereotypical shonen heroes]] (albeit a ''heavy'' deconstruction of such characters), though the series is adapted from a +18 HGame. Notably, the manga adaption ''did'' run on a shonen magazine.
