* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' began as a light comedy about an inept ten-year old mage teaching a class of 31 Japanese middle school girls with ''lots'' of {{Fanservice}}. As the arcs progressed, the story became much more action-oriented and fairly serious at times. This was entirely intentional on the part of [[KenAkamatsu the author]]. From the beginning, he wanted to do an action series, but ExecutiveMeddling forced him to hide it behind an UnwantedHarem image. The GenreShift was his form of WriterRevolt.

** ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' starts off as a SliceOfLife series, arguably more lightearted and cutesy than the other series. Then all of a sudden, some stronger opponents appear to challenge the tamers...then a weird kid, a government agency tries to wipe the digimon out, and that's before they actually go to the digital world! [[CosmicHorrorStory It only gets worse from there.]]

* ''Anime/UltimateMuscle'' started off as a comedy series parodying ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'', but then became a wrestling series with loads of drama, although with very silly characters.

* ''Manga/{{Narutaru}}'' starts off like a reasonably series before quickly becoming a MindScrew full of horrors. It's a ''very'' intentional example.

* This does ''not'' happen in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', unless one counts the Ryu Kumon story arc- if anything, the series actually has a reversed form of this, starting out fairly serious (if comedic) and transforming into more or less slapstick plus dramatic moments. The fandom, however, is known for its creation of drama and angst FanFiction, evidently based on the fact that a lot of the series' humor does stem from ComedicSociopathy, "you gotta laugh or else you'll cry" moments, and bits that ring uneasily if [[FridgeLogic you think about it enough]]. For example, at one point in the manga, Akane demands Ranma throw a fight in the belief that this will reduce his UnwantedHarem. When Ranma refuses, she casually uses a cat to terrify him into obedience, despite knowing [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes how badly they scare him]] and all about the childhood trauma that made him so afraid of them. Ryoga having NoSenseOfDirection is quite easy to play for angst, given that Ryoga himself does this in canon.

** The new movies [[ZigzaggedTrope zigzag this]]. The first one, ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'' leans much more towards comedy than most of DBZ (even bringing back some villains from the original ''Manga/DragonBall''). The second movie, however, ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', brings back a DBZ villain and is much more serious and action-oriented than the first. The new anime, ''Anime/DragonballSuper'' will likely zigzag this overall since the arcs will cover the events of both movies.

The new anime, ''Anime/DragonballSuper'' will likely zigzag ''Anime/DragonballSuper'', zigzags this overall since the overall. Its first major arcs will cover are adaptations of ''Battle of Gods'' and ''Resurrection [='F'=]'', but the events in-between stories are typically light-hearted, like Mr. Satan having to impress a race of both movies. feline aliens. The next arc is about a martial arts tournament between the standard ''DB'' universe and a parallel universe; while action-packed, the stakes aren't amazingly high. However, this is followed by an arc that brings back fan-favorite Future Trunks and shows that his BadFuture world has gotten '''even worse''' thanks to the arrival of a genocidal villain who's killed off most of humanity [[spoiler:including Future Bulma]].

* While it never permanently slipped into this, ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' got some more serious moments as the series progressed. You're watching (or reading) this hilariously cute story with these frogs who never get any invading done. You expect StatusQuoIsGod to remain in effect forever and nothing bad to ever really happen to the planet, then suddenly [[spoiler:the entire planet is put into paralysis by a much more dangerous platoon who has come not only to take over the planet but also to discharge the Keroro Platoon. To add to it, Keroro is in the middle of being de-aged and losing his memory, Giroro gets shot out of the sky by his brother and we don't know if he's alive for a while, and we learn that when a platoon is discharged, the members of it are supposed to separate forever. OUCH.]]

* Manga/KokounoHito begins as a pretty typical shounen sports manga, not dissimilar to SlamDunk and other such series. However the story takes on a '''very''' different tone after [[spoiler: the main character's kindly instructor]] dies, becoming a more adult and psychological story and even deconstructing or heavily subverting typical shounen sports tropes such as the LoveInterest and TheRival.

* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' took this one to heart after a CreatorBreakdown ended the orignal manga. When the legal problems got solved, it got restarted as ToLoveRu:Darkness which was both DarkerAndEdgier and HotterAndSexier.
