*** Later seasons have also started to focus more on the BackStoryHorror that is the [[WorldWar3 Mushroom War.]] [[spoiler: For instance, it's revealed that [[WalkingWasteland the Lich]] was born from the nuclear waste that the atomic bomb left, and Marceline and Simon Petrikov (who was still semi-sane) lived through the war together, with him acting as a parent to her (she 7, he 47 (as of Simon&Marcy)). They share a extremely moving episode where all this is revealed as she desperately tries to get him to remember.]]

* ''ReBoot'' was originally about computer components protecting their town in a mostly comical fashion. When Bob was lost in the Web at the end of Season 2 and [[BigBad Megabyte]] begins an active battle for control of Mainframe, the series got much more serious, but still retained its adventurous charm. For the 4th season it starts off with the Daemon Wars only to conclude that and turn sharply back into a more comedic show. [[spoiler:THEN Megabyte is still alive and using his new Trojan powers trickes everyone into thinking he is Bob. He almost marries Dot, infects Mainframe and [[LeftHanging seems to have won]].]] The series is like a mood yoyo.

* Sure, ''[[TronUprising TRON: Uprising]]'' was never the cheeriest of shows to start out with, but halfway through things started getting ''dark'', with characters dying left right and centre (often in gory ways), torture and mutilation cropping up more and more, the full extent of [[spoiler:Tron's tortured past becoming apparent, and the uprising continuing to fail. And to top it all off, in the season finale CLU comes to Argon City with a big army in tow.]] Don't worry, it'll be resolved in the next season- wait, the show hasn't been renewed? Then enjoy your [[spoiler:DoomedByCanon BolivianArmyEnding!]]

* Season 1 ''WesternAnimation/IronMan'' ended with "The Wedding of Iron Man", where the titular "wedding" between Tony and [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Julia]] was indeed a sham up on to lure the Mandarin out with everyone outside of [[ComicBook/ScarletWitch Wanda]] being in on it. Season 2 had a recurring bit in the relationship between Tony and Julia that Julia herself resented the stunt, too.

*** [[FromBadToWorse Yeah, Season 4 called]]; they have pushed the [[HolyShitQuotient HSQ]] meter to breaking point. 1) Korra was incapacitated for '''3 years!!''' 2) The Earth Kingdom has been rechristened the [[TheEmpire Earth Empire]] and is the Avatarverse's equivalent of the [[PrecisionFStrike fucking Nazis!]] 3) The Empire is researching the spirit vines, which have enough power to cause the equivalent of a [[FantasticNuke nuclear explosion...]] and [[FourIsDeath 4)]] [[TheBadGuyWins The villains are winning...]]

* The final season of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' has officially fallen under this thanks to the show unexpectedly moving to ''[adultswim]'' allowing a DarkerAndEdgier approach since the showrunners wisely knew that the original audience for the show's classic run are now grown up. While not always squeaky-clean, the original seasons were mostly friendly to viewers of all-ages with ridiculous adventures in between the story arc like Jack turning into a chicken or entering Wonderland. However, the final season immediately sets the bar by having an RRatedOpening of our hero Jack becoming a cynical, possibly suicidal, ShellShockedVeteran who has grown tired of his never ending battle with [[BigBad Aku]] and the grisly childbirth of his new enemies [[ArcVillain the Daughters of Aku]], followed by intense training from childhood to adulthood where young girls are systematically abused into becoming the perfect warriors. It's safe to say that ''Samurai Jack'' has grown up a lot too.

** Oh, and there's also a [[DoomsdayDevice planet-busting weapon]] powered by ''millions'' of [[PoweredByAForsakenChild forsaken Gems]] at the center of the Earth. It was created by the Diamonds to destroy Earth out of pure spite. This marked Homeworld's ''second'' attempt to wipe out all organic life on the planet.

* The original ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' was a mostly light-hearted comedy with some occasional dramatic moments thrown in. ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' keeps the comedy, but cranks the drama ''waaay'' up, as Po faces the villain who [[YouKilledMyFather committed genocide against the other pandas]], [[YouKilledMyFather including his biological parents]]. ([[spoiler:Except that his father and some others survived]].)
