* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' is full of mature themes and taboo sexual relationships/metaphors, and as such has never received a rating lower than 13+ on a North American release. However, the show is indeed a shoujo, and was scheduled at a timeslot on TV Tokyo in which lots of young children would be watching (for a few months, it aired right before ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'').

If not that, it's usually due to violent content; graphic violence doesn't have anywhere near the social stigma in Japan as it does in the rest of the world (where it has been theorized that blood and gore in the media may desensitize children to committing violent acts in real life).

life)... ''so long as it is portrayed in a negative light and is shown as being villainous''. You'll still rarely ever see the heroes engage in senseless violence (and the more shonen you watch, the more you may notice the heroes decrying such things), but because it's okay for such things to be shown as ''evil'', there's a lot more latitude for the villains to really [[KickTheDog punt puppies with steel toes]].

* ''Anime/GhostStories'' (a.k.a. ''Gakkou no Kaidan'') is an anime about a group of prepubescent children who chase ghosts, which is targeted at kids. Notable ghosts they encounter are an incredibly scary and unstoppable GrimReaper lookalike, a grotesque HumanoidAbomination with a giant eye for mouth and a [[Literature/TheRing Sadako]] relative (who even comes out of a TV) who almost strangles the female lead to death. All of the ghosts are played seriously, albeit the English GagDub makes the series quite silly. However, said English gag dub is [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids definitely]] [[RefugeInAudacity NOT]] this trope.

* In ''Manga/KenganAsura'', despite this mixed martial arts fighting series running in a magazine meant for young teens it features many graphical scenes one would see in series aimed at older audiences, such as many brutal portrayals of highly detailed violence and in the middle of that some quick shots of sexual intercourse.

* The manga ''Bastard!!''. First off, the title stopped it from hitting mainstream in the US. It ran in Weekly Shonen Jump up until volume 8 or so, but even before volume 8 it is a crazy-R-rated manga, with sex (comically-sized penises included, and one sex scene so explicit Viz wouldn't publish it uncensored - and they released ''Manga/TenjhoTenge'' without edits!), gory violence and a metric crapton of creative swearing/expressions ("This fuckwad is getting cocky just 'cause he's the world's biggest ball of shit!" "I don't need help from a shit stained ass-monkey!").

** Though this is mostly for the 2003 anime. The manga and Brotherhood stays generally Shonen even with its dark moments.
