It is often the case that experiments built with a focus on a specific fundamental question are also sensitive to a wider range of physical phenomena. In this talk I will discuss two such cases. First, I will follow JCAP 05 (2021) 054, which assesses what simple dark matter models will be uniquely probed by a Neutrino telescope similar to KM3NeT. Given the existing constraints from $\gamma$-ray telescopes, measurements of the cosmic microwave background and direct dark matter detection, we mention a secluded $U(1)_{L_{\mu}-L_{\tau}}$ model as particularly promising. Secondly, I will follow arXiv:2104.03297, which describes how detecting solar neutrinos in direct detection experiments will be vital for distinguishing between possible $U(1)$ explanations of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon.
