Well, sure if you want to [[NightmareFuel scare them for life]], [[TearJerker shove their hearts into a woodchipper]], [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible confuse them to an overwhelming extreme]], or [[RefugeInAudacity show/teach them words or other things they really shouldn't know yet]].

* Many fandoms that are about kid-friendly media have many fanworks that would be kid-'''unfriendly''', especially if [[PeripheryDemographic there are a high amount of older fans]]. Examples include [[DarkFic Dark Fics]], sexually explicit material, and anything that's mature for kids.
** Fandoms that are infamous for these include ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog''.



* Despite the show itself being appropriate for all ages, the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fandom is pretty infamous for the surprising amount of {{Dark Fic}}s, pornographic material, and works that simply have more mature themes than what would ever be allowed into series. Special not goes to ''Fanfic/{{Cupcakes}}'' and ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestria'', and their '''many''' many [[RecursiveFanfiction spin offs]].
** This is also the case with many other infamous fandoms, such as the ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' fandom.

* One of Anonymous's pranks invoked this trope. Anonymous members uploaded a bunch of porn videos to Website/YouTube disguised as kid-friendly stuff like ''Series/LazyTown'', Music/TheJonasBrothers and Music/MileyCyrus (back when they ''were'' [[ContractualPurity kid-friendly]]), so kids would watch the videos and get quite a nasty shock. One user responded with [[MemeticMutation the now-famous phrase]], "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/im-twelve-years-old-and-what-is-this I'm 12 years old and what is this?]]"

* Nowadays the Snow Maiden is the granddaughter and companion of Grandfather Frost (the Russian gift-bringer for New Year and Christmas), and practically every film or play involving her is a cheerful sweet fairytale. Unfortunately, not all parents seem to know that [[Theatre/TheSnowMaiden the original play that invented the character as we know her]] and the opera based on said play are [[EndingFatigue really long]], practically every character is morally [[GreyAndGrayMorality very gray]], and both the play and the opera deal with issues like divorce, sexual frigidity, human sacrifice, suicide, and (attempted) rape. Not to mention heaps of symbolism and an extremely depressing ending. [[SarcasmMode Just the thing for a five-year old]].

* ''WebAnimation/SonicShorts" appears kid-friendly due to its cartoony animation and the fact that [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog the series it's based off]] has kid-friendly content. However, some skits inserted have profanity, unrealistic blood, and/or some suggestive content.

* ''The Eight: The Reindeer Monologues''. Oh so very much. Poor misguided parents, bringing their children into a play chock full of [[ClusterFBomb f-bombs]], discussions of sexual abuse and discriminatory language, all because the cast wears cute little antlers and it's about Rudolph and Santa at Christmas. As [[http://www.artstheatre.com.au/show/thereindeermonologues this Australian venue puts it ]] "Leave the young ones at home with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads."

*The Apocryphal books aren't usually found in Protestant Bibles, but Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christians include them in their canons. However, they are no less troubling than the Old Testament:

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8rcflM9tqE The story of Susanna]]. The video says it's for kids, but a courtroom drama about lust, rape, and defamation than ends in execution is far from a children's story.

** There's also [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEeDTVIgFgk one for Tobit ]], a story about God's providence through the angel Raphael. However, the B plot is about a demon of lust who murders a poor woman's husbands not once, not twice, but ''seven'' times in a row. Very kid-friendly!
** The books of Maccabees-- [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZWFHl-4FVQ it has an Animated Hero Classic ]] although the beginning of the story where Mattathias murders a fellow Jew ''on an altar'' is not exactly kid-friendly.

No wonder Martin Luther decided to remove them.

* ''WebAnimation/HowItShouldHaveEnded'' may appear to be a funny cartoon portraying alternate endings of movies and TV shows, including some that kids love, but on't let that fool you. This series sometimes has cursing, violence (in their ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' parody, the witch is shot with a gun) and pop culture jokes that kids wouldn't understand (for example, Bing Bong singing a song from [[Film/TheBreakfastClub an R-rated movie]] in their ''WesterAnimation/InsideOut'' parody.)

* Some toddlers have been taken to see ''Film/KinkyBoots'', and a sensory-friendly Broadway series for children with disabilities featured it as one of the plays. It's about people going to a shoe show, and young children, especially girls, like dressing up, so many parents falsely believe the show could appeal to them. It's actually about a drag queen who has to deal with adult problems at that shoe show.
