* It can be argued that this {{trope}}, combined with ValuesDissonance, is why ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' (a.k.a., ''Case Closed!'') failed when it was broadcast on Creator/CartoonNetwork in the United States: it was too childish for '''[adult swim]''', yet too violent for Toonami. The aged animation style was the final nail in the coffin. In fact, this anime was aired during family hours in Japan. Complete with brutal murders; complex plots involving suicide, drugs and business dealings; and of course copious amounts of sexual tension. And apparently that's why it worked in the German language broadcast. Not only has the German dubbed run more than twice the episodes compared to the English, but those extra episodes run uncut in a children's block.

* Manga/DamekkoDoubutsu is a SliceOfLife style anime/manga about animals (Humans wearing animal costumes Peter Pan style) [[RagTagBunchOfMisfits who are very different from what they are usually well-known for]]. [[SuperDeformed Despite the art style]],[[EarWorm upbeat opening]], [[SliceOfLife and laid back feeling]]. [[JerkAss Usahara]] one of the main characters, [[SmokingIsCool is a chain-smoker who is very agressive]]. There's also a Tobacco store, and Yunihiko is first seen drinking tons of alcohol which Usahara would later join in. Resulting in them getting drunk, and passing out in the process. Doesn't help that this aired on "Kids Station" which airs the majority of Japanese children's shows.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' manga is a wacky {{shonen|demographic}} GagSeries, and given ValuesDissonance, there's a lot of jokes and scenarios that just wouldn't fly in international markets -- NakedPeopleAreFunny, jokes about one's *ahem* eleventh tentacle, lewd references, and a scene where the main character pantses a rival, [[AssShove shoves the barrel of his Splattershot up his ass]], ''and pulls the trigger.'' Yeesh! Somehow, it defied NoExportForYou and made it to international shores--where it is, against all odds, marketed to the same demographic as in Japan.

Added DiffLines:

** Goes double for the Chimera Ant arc, which features BlackAndGrayMorality, bordering on BlackAndBlackMorality, along with much of the graphic violence described above, plus significant dismemberments, plots of genocide [[spoiler:(though neither side succeeds in this aim)]], disturbing imagery and themes left, right, and center, and even [[spoiler:nuclear apocalypse]] is depicted, though the last one isn't part of the arc's main focus.

* ''Manga/{{Life}}'' may be a {{Shoujo}} manga however it's considerably more mature in nature than most shoujo. From the graphic nudity, sexual scenes, and gore...it's no wonder TokyoPop changed it from being for "Older Teens" to "Mature". One scene in volume 6 even involved showing two characters somewhat graphically having sex. It can easily be mistaken for a {{Josei}} manga.

* Like Kare First Love, ''Manga/{{Mars}}'' deals with very dark subject matters like suicide, sexual abuse and also has an explicit sex scene yet Creator/{{TokyoPop}} keeps the rating at Teen 13+.

** ''Anime/PokemonGenerations'' features an in-universe version. AZ's history (which features a war and countless innocents being sacrificed to power a WeaponOfMassDestruction) is apparently treated as a children's fairy tale.

* ''Manga/{{Nana}}''. With its fairly adult storyline and content, it runs in a {{Shojo}} magazine. {{Josei}} would have been more like it.

* ''Manga/BlackButler''. It has {{Seinen}} written all over it, but is published in a {{Shonen}} magazine. It contains violence and gore, murder, child abuse, sex (and in the {{anime}}, rape), pedophilia, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking questionable dialogue]]. To top it all off, its protagonists are {{Villain Protagonist}}s who kill anyone who gets in the way of their goals. On the other hand, cooking competitions, dance lessons, boys put in fluffy dresses, a cast full of bishonen, and a huge female fanbase might cause it to be mistaken for {{Shojo}}.

* ''Manga/GirlsBravo'' was mildly controversial when it came over to the United States; Geneon had to put a warning on the back (something usually only done for hentai) advising stores not to sell it to people under 17. It averts the usual non-nude ecchi that was popular at the time with detailed, graphic nudity and sexual situations. So how on Earth did its manga run in the same shonen magazine as squeaky-clean manga like ''Angelic Layer''?!

* In regards to the new four part movie remake being made based on it, Creator/HideakiAnno mentioned, briefly, that ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' was intended for youths and even kids and how the message of the series was important for their ears more so than anyone else. You know, that show where a naked teenage girl grows to the size of a planet and then falls apart, [[MindRape another character has her mind horrifically invaded and essentially violated]], and ended up squarely defining pessimism in the Super Robot genre. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids In the States, it was once the victim of the opposite trope, nowadays]] ''Evangelion'' is pretty much put on par with ''AKIRA'', ''Legend of the Overfiend'' and violent anime/hentai in general. Japanese parents (and sponsors) were just as surprised at an afterschool {{anime}} growing so violent and nightmarish so quickly, culminating in the movie being a strictly R-rating level affairs.\\\
