* ''VideoGame/FrogFractions'', at its outset, pretends to be a math-based EdutainmentGame. The original premise rapidly disappears under successive waves of GameplayRoulette and MindScrew, and is barely a memory by the time the game becomes a porn business management sim.

* Several episodes of ''Manga/PopTeamEpic'' have segments featuring puppets of Popuko and Pipimi that start out innocently, but get dark halfway through. One segment, "Go To Sleep, Kon-Chan!" begins with the girls singing a cute song about putting a baby fox to sleep, but then [[spoiler: Popuko yells at the viewers that they should be asleep like the baby fox in the song]]. The most well-known example, "The Heart Tree", starts out as a song about trying hard in your classes at school, but when Pipimi starts clapping her hands to the melody, [[spoiler: it turns into a song about how destroying things can be fun.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' has a [[ArtStyleDissonance simple, paper cut-out art style]], [[{{UsefulNotes/Kawaisa}} cute characters]], and [[KidHero child protagonists]]. It is for these reasons that it became ''notorious'' for being a case of WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids. Way back in the '90s, MoralGuardians around America ''hated'' this show for being inappropriate and [[ThinkOfTheChildren exposing children]] to [[ToiletHumor Toilet]] and VulgarHumor. Luckily, the show's become a loved pop culture icon, despite this. Amusingly, a later promo for the [[LongRunner twentieth season]] shows the story of a young girl growing up watching ''South Park'' as if it were a kids' cartoon.

* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' of all shows has one in the form of ''Recap/SupernaturalS13E16ScoobyNatural'' . Despite the franchise having gone into [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated dark places]] before, and having the same art style as some of the more recent [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndBatmanTheBraveAndTheBold entries]] , this is not a kid friendly episode due to its swearing, and much gorier violence. The fact it's a crossover with the clearly adult ''LiveAction/{{Supernatural}}'' adds to this.

See also WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids (when a show officially aimed at kids deals with content or subjects that most would not consider appropriate for children's shows), SugarApocalypse (where a SugarBowl is conquered or destroyed), SurpriseCreepy (where a work of fiction starts off harmless, but eventually becomes super disturbing and nightmarish), and VileVillainSaccharineShow (where a lighthearted show has an incongruously sinister antagonist). You might find the DepravedKidsShowHost in one of these.

* ''Anime/SwordArtOnline'' has an episode "Red-Nosed Reindeer" that sounds like it would be a sweet Christmas special. [[spoiler:It's actually a tragedy. All of Kirito's friends die in front of him because of his mistake, and then he devotes a bunch of time and effort toward [[HopeSpot a rumor about a magical artifact that he could use to resurrect his girlfriend]], only to find out he's six months too late. Then he receives a surprisingly cheerful message that she wrote before she died, telling him not to beat himself up too much because she had accepted long ago that it was only a matter of time before she met a violent end. Merry Christmas!]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' could easily fool more than a few unsuspecting people into thinking it's a kids' movie due to it's [[ArtStyleDissonance Pixar-esque art style]]. Let's just say that the film is ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids far]]'' [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids from family-friendly...]]

* The AfterTheEnd short story series ''FanFic/DayOfTheBarneyTrilogy'' portrays the famous purple dinosaur as a disturbingly chipper cult leader and EldritchAbomination who causes a SugarApocalypse,inciting his young fanbase to murder every single adult in sight, before taking over America.

* ''Film/{{Ted}}'' starts off like this, with a little boy finding that his teddy bear has come to life as a Christmas miracle to be his best friend. It's played completely straight--possibly the neighbourhood bullies are crueller than they'd usually be in a film like this--until the teddy wanders into the kitchen, and the boy's parents immediately react by asking [[PrecisionFStrike what the fuck]] that thing is, and threaten to shoot it. The boy and his bear become famous all over the world... then we TimeSkip to a point where the boy is now an emotionally-stunted adult, still dependent on his teddy bear, who is a FormerChildStar and incredibly hedonistic and crude. After this, the subversion is complete and it drops the pretense to focus on other gags.
