* There's a book that looks like a children's picture book, has artwork like a children's picture book, and is written like a children's picture book, but it's called ''Literature/GoTheFuckToSleep'' and is aimed at adults. Made even better by having freaking ''Creator/SamuelLJackson'' reading the audiobook. To make up for it, there is an actual children's version of the book called ''Seriously,JustGoToSleep.''

* Brazilian {{Tumblr}} [[http://porramauricio.tumblr.com/ Porra, Maurício!]] gets panels from ''ComicBook/MonicasGang'' and sees them as perverted content. Among the running gags are [[BlackIsBiggerInBed Jeremiah having a]] GagPenis (as well as having him and Taka as {{Memetic Molester}}s), Bucky being AmbiguouslyGay, and resident BigEater Maggy being portrayed as a junkie. Though sometimes it's just "WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?" (such as [[http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kzsn3x93yR1qbnzf6o1_500.jpg this]], where Chuck Billy's girlfriend Rosie Lee reveals somehow her face changed to LeonardoDiCaprio's - ItMakesSenseInContext)

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/PibAndPog'' is a SelfParody by Creator/AardmanAnimations, featuring two cute claymation creatures in a pre-school children's show that rapidly descends into them committing tit-for-tat acts of graphic ultraviolence on each other.

* Creator/AlanMoore did this to ComicBook/{{Superman}} in ''ComicBook/WhateverHappenedToTheManOfTomorrow'', in which basically every [[NotSoHarmlessVillain joke villain in his gallery suddenly goes serious.]] To wit: Bizarro attempts the "perfect imperfect duplicate" by massacring citizens and committing suicide ("Superman... ''alive''"), Toyman and Prankster kidnap, torture, and kill one of Clark Kent's coworkers and expose his secret identity during a news broadcast, an army of Metallos besieges the Daily Planet and forces Superman and his closest allies to withdraw to the Fortress of Solitude, Brainiac takes over Lex Luthor's body and allies with the Kryptonite Man and the Legion of Supervillains and kills Jimmy Olsen, Lana Lang, and Krypto the Super Dog. [[spoiler:And [[TheManBehindTheMan the mastermind behind it all]] is Mxyzptlk. "Did you ''honestly'' believe that [[CosmicHorror a fifth-dimensional sorceror would resemble a funny little man in a derby hat?"]] Superman kills him by ripping him apart between his own dimension and the Phantom Zone; then, in penance, walks into a room of [[DePower Gold Kryptonite]] and then [[DrivenToSuicide into the Arctic.]]]] At least [[EarnYourHappyEnding the ending is happy]]. Moore also plays with this in ''Comicbook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' by solving a maze so a character can get a narcotic hit.

Moore also plays with this in a parody children's comic section in ''Comicbook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' by solving a maze so a character can get a narcotic hit.hit. The second volume of ''League'' had an extended section devoted to this, which depicted the characters from various well-known British FunnyAnimal comics (in particular ''ComicStrip/RupertBear'') as horrific mutations created by [[Literature/TheIslandOfDoctorMoreau Doctor Moreau]].

* The character of Monokuma in ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'', a horrible, but hilarious scheming murderer, played in the Japanese version by the voice actress for Anime/{{Doraemon}}. The famous LetsPlay of the game notes that Doraemon's voice virtually ''is'' childhood in Japan, and Japanese players invariably have a huge reaction as soon as Monokuma starts speaking.
** Tarako ,TheOtherDarrin from ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' onward, doesn't help with her most famous role being the titular character of ''Manga/ChibiMarukoChan''.

speaking. Tarako, TheOtherDarrin from ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' onward, doesn't help with her most famous role being the titular character of ''Manga/ChibiMarukoChan''.



** Hell ''Homestuck'' itself sort of counts. It's got a bright and cartoony art style and the basic premise sounds like something out of a Saturday morning cartoon (some kids play a video game that turns out to be able to change the world) so it initially looks like a kid's comic. Than you reach the first f-bomb...
