* The Team Achilles spin-off of ''{{Stormwatch}}'' was cancelled after writer Micah Ian Wright was discovered to have grossly exaggerated his claimed military experience. The controversy was especially severe due to Wright's anti-Iraq-War activism, which he had used his alleged past to give greater weight to.

** Main/{{WrestleCrap}} brought up another one; when interviewed on [[Wrestling/SteveAustin Stone Cold's]] podcast, Wrestling/TripleH was asked why Wrestling/{{Chyna}} has never been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, despite being a big part of the Attitude Era, with him replying it was due to her being a porn actress and WWE not wishing to be associated with that. However, as the writer pointed out, Sunny is in the Hall of Fame and she did/has done porn, and Jimmy Snuka (possibly) murdered someone, so he comes off looking like a hypocrite.

* ''Videogame/NiNoKuni'' places a great deal of emphasis on the moral that you should follow your dreams. Unfortunately, the ten-year-old protagonist and his best friend live in 1950s UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}}, even if it's only ever referred to by its nickname "Motor City". They dream of designing cars. One look at how the American car industry in general and [[PlacesWorseThanDeath Detroit in particular]] fared since the 1950s tells an entirely different story regarding what happens when you follow your dreams than the game intended.

* [[DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney]] is famous for its sweetness-and-light approach to children's entertainment; in fact, sometimes they [[{{Disneyfication}} overdo it.]] The actual Disney company, however, [[StepfordSmiler hides sharp teeth behind]] that [[SickeninglySweet saccharine smile]]. Just ask anyone who's ever been in a legal battle with the company, or look up what good ol' Walt himself did to staff (and trade unions) that crossed him. This can come as a bit of a shock to those who see Disney as a guardian of childhood and fair play.

* In 2003, ''{{Marvel}}'' tried to get a lower import tax rate on their ''[[ComicBook/XMen]]'' action figures by claiming that they were not dolls, but toys. U.S. tariff laws defined a "doll" as a figure representing a human, while a "toy" represents an animal or creature. So in summation, the crux of Marvel's argument was that the X-Men are not human, which directly opposes the main Aesop of the X-Men series. The judge ruled in their favour.
