* ''{{We 3}}'', by Creator/GrantMorrison, is about three talking animals trying to find their way home; the covers feature "missing pets" notices written in childlike style. Kids'll love it, right? Sure! Except for the scenes featuring the cybernetic animal soldiers literally ''tearing apart the soldiers meant to come kill them'', the part where [[spoiler: the rabbit ''explodes while hurling itself at a car'']], and all sorts of graphic violence in between. Oh, and it's being adapted into a movie directed by the guy who made ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''. Prepare for some traumatized children... As if the Creator/{{Vertigo|Comics}} label wasn't a warning already...

It has a sexual relationship between [[MayDecemberRomance Deathstroke and Terra]],Starfire being MsFanservice,Raven being a child of rape, and plenty of violence. And the characters are generally more angsty.

* Anything Archie's has to be family friendly, right? Nevermind that the main comics have been risque in their own right, the recent spinoff series' like ''ComicBook/ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina'' and ''ComicBook/AfterlifeWithArchie'' are at minimum PG-13 and rather graphic horror series. Even the 2015 reboot is a little HotterAndSexier than the original comics.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' is a dark and gritty series, but still considered family friendly. ''ComicBook/TheBatmanAdventures'' tie-in comic is considerably darker, has more blood and violence, and has references to sexuality. One one-shot "annual" comic loosely based on the series was guest-illustrated by more mature comics artists (including Klaus Janson, Frank Miller's partner on ''TheDarkKnightReturns''!) and had a character saying [[PrecisionFStrike "Who the hell are you?"]] - the likes of which was ''never'' uttered on the TV series. It's taken even further in the ''Harley and Ivy'' subseries, where hinting at the sex lives of the title characters is arguably a large part of the point. In one, the two characters in question are sleeping in the same bed at one point, and Harley says that she loves Ivy "more than Mista J" and Ivy makes several direct references to the Joker's physical and psychological abuse of Harley, which she (Ivy) is disgusted with.

* Film/TheExtraordinaryAdventuresOfAdeleBlancSec was a very successful PG-rated blockbuster in its native France. Given that its kid-friendly one would expect its source material, which is the comic book of the same name to be kid-friendly as well. It is rather the opposite, seen as in the comic book she has a neighbor that kills cats for fun, a sect worshiping a satanic abomination and multiple realistically drawn murders. It can probably best be described as the kind of thing Creator/HayaoMiyazaki (the actual creator is only known under the pseunonym ''Tardi'') would come up with if he would for some reason make an anime with the intent of getting it [[BannedInChina banned in its native Japan]]. Considering how many anime is on this list, [[UpToEleven this speaks volumes]].

* It has been speculated that reason ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} (who was supposed to have her own series as far back as 2005) was kept on ice for so long is because WB execs were worried about upsetting parents by introducing a lesbian Bat-character in the wake of Batman's resurgence in mainstream popularity after the release of ''Film/BatmanBegins''.

It apparently didn't matter that ''Batman Begins'' is a ''terrifying'' film, making ''BatmanReturns'' look like a Disney family comedy.

** In an interview in Amazing Heroes #119, writer Max Allan Collins said that, in reference to a Creator/FrankMiller written story which had ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} as a former prostitute, he found that inappropriate--the equivalent of doing Literature/PeterPan and having them face [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything historically accurate pirates]]. Collins felt that Catwoman was derived from children’s entertainment, appearing in a series that had turned into a much more overtly juvenile version of Radio/TheShadow (Catwoman debuted soon after the début of the KidSidekick with shaved legs, short shorts and elf shoes) and therefore people should keep that in mind when handling her. * ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' is a dark and gritty series, but still considered family friendly.
