* ''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.

* Between ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' and Clannad After Story, this trope takes effect [[UpToEleven with a vengeance.]] The former is a lighthearted story about a high school student finding joy in his life, and subsequently helping other find theirs, through the new friendships he makes. It's riddled with {{Tearjerker}}s and plenty of [[CrowningMomentofHeartWarming feel good moments]], but never quite loses its light feeling. Afterstory clings to this for approximately the first half of the run, until its [[PleaseWakeUp tear jerker]] to top all [[DespairEventHorizon tear jerkers]]. Better yet? It does this TWICE. Between the two, things get horribly dark, horribly depressing, and horribly hopeless, and just when the slightest glimmer of hope shines through the cracks, it's [[KillTheCutie ripped away]]. Bring tissues.

** In fact, this shift can be clearly observed by the change in the opening songs. The two songs in the first season have an uplifting, "dancing" sequence, while the two songs in the second and [[spoiler: final]] season are far more melancholic, with the fourth one ending with [[spoiler: Nagisa smiling and looking at Koro-sensei, and then gazing back to see he's not there anymore]]. In the second season, the title sequence also [[spoiler: counts down the days till Koro-sensei will explode]], making it even more of a [[spoiler: TearJerker]].

* ''Manhwa/TheBreaker'' started out as a fairly lighthearted action {{manhwa}} with plenty of comedy thrown in, but gradually got more serious as a major character's DarkAndTroubledPast (and its present consequences) comes to light. By Volume 10 the humor is entirely gone and another major character has been killed off.

* ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' starts off as a cute MagicalGirlWarrior anime with an unusual emphasis on SliceOfLife elements. There's nothing too dark until not even half way in when the girls [[spoiler:each lose a physical ability. Fu is blind in one eye, Itsuki can't speak, Yuuna can't taste anything, and Mimori is deaf in one ear (on top of already being wheelchair bound).]] They think it's temporary but later learn it's not after meeting [[spoiler:Sonoko. Sonoko was a character in the prequel light novel who was Mimori's friend and a Hero as well, but Mimori lost her memory permanently and Sonoko is bed bound and is covered in bandages. It turns out MagicalGirl's are sacrifices to [[WorldTree Shinju-sama]]]].
