* Even the classic ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'' was not immune to this trope. When E.T. first became a hit in theaters, Creator/StevenSpielberg and E.T. screenwriter Melissa Mathison came up with a treatment for a sequel: ''[[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo E.T. II:]] [[FreudWasRight Nocturnal Fears]]'', in which Elliot and his friends are kidnapped by [[TheGreys evil albino offshoots]] of E.T.'s species. Fortunately, E.T. returns to Earth and rescues them, but not until after the kids have all been [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured]]. They thought better of it.

** ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith''. This sequel manages to be the darkest of all prequels, and probably the darkest of the entire saga so far. (Notably, it is the first ''Star Wars'' film to garner a PG-13 rating). This is where you know the plot of the FallenHero, TheBadGuyWins this time and this is the first in the series that blood shown graphically (note when Anakin is almost killed).

The movie contains an infamous scene of [[spoiler:Vader murdering children]].

** ''Film/RogueOne'' manages to be even darker still, to the point that the already dark ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' has been called "family-friendly" in comparison. It has an aesthetic and tone closer to a war movie than a space opera. The film is bleak throughout, introduces BlackAndGreyMorality into the franchise, and contains much more realistic violence than the previous entries, with a very brutal scene of [[spoiler:Vader wordlessly hacking through a group of Rebel soldiers like [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]].]]

** Although there's still some humorous banter to be had, the overall tone of ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' is considerably darker and more intense than any of the previous movies in the series. Many have compared it to ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' in this regard ([[http://birthmoviesdeath.com/2016/05/02/how-empire-strikes-back-helped-keep-captain-america-civil-wars-dark-ending including the directors]]). It's noted that ''Age of Ultron'' was supposed to be the really dark entry in the series, had been advertised as having almost no humor, yet still had more than its fair share. This movie has even ''less''.

* ''Film/PowerRangers2017'' is unsurprisingly darker than the original ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', as the team takes after the [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]] team ins being a cast of misfits and outcasts rather than the popular goody-goods of the original ''MMPR'', as Jason is a failing student who was once in an accident, Zack is an outsider, Billy and Trini are being bullied for being a geek and her looks respectively, and Kimberly is a former cheerleader shunned by her former teammates. The dark approach also extends to Rita, as she boasts to Trini about [[HeroKiller killing past Rangers]].
