* WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} gets darker every season, third season left a lot of fans in shock for the dark turn the series have taken, with things going FromBadToWorse, lots of BreakTheCutie and [[spoiler: the first on-screen CharacterDeath]]. This is better illustrated by the opening lyrics, that get darker every season, the third season's opening's, When It Falls, first part is:
--->"Maybe it's red like roses,
--->Maybe it's a pool of blood.
--->The innocents will lay in
--->When in the end, you fail to save them.

* The flash series ''WebAnimation/MarioBrothers'' was much darker than the original games, as the very beginning had Mario trying to escape from something before it proceeds to a flashback.
** Luigi ended up killed during an ambush on King Koopa's forces, Koopa successfully kidnaps Princess Toadstool because Mario was busy mourning for Luigi. Koopa's plans with Toadstool involve using her to create mushrooms so he could effectively be immortal. After a final stand against Koopa, and successfully dethroning him, he ends up ''failing'' to save the Princess (resulting in her death by magma alongside Koopa), and the direct result was an eruption, getting to where the series started. Mario then faces the magma flow and dies.

* In [[TheRandomverse Marvel/DC: After Hours]] Season 2, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's plan is to make all comic book characters into DarkerAndEdgier characters. The Green Goblin however ends up pointing out that all that will lead to is DarknessInducedAudienceApathy without LighterAndSofter heroes.

* ''EquestriaChronicles'' is WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic [[XMeetsY meets]] Literature/NineteenEightyFour.
* ''Roleplay/TwilightOfEquestria'' spins off from WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic into a different world, one that is oh so much more sinister. Characters have contended with [[ZombieApocalypse zombie attacks]]. [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demon ponies]] and [[HybridMonster hybrid ponies]] fraternize with mutant ponies and your usual [[FantasyKitchenSink unicorns, pegasi, griffins, and zebras]]. Heroes from [[IncorruptiblePurePureness the really good]] to [[GreyandGrayMorality the ambiguous]] grapple with {{Villains}} and [[AntiVillain Anti-Villains]] as they all try to understand what brought them together in the most unlikely of places...

* ''WebVideo/BoardJames'' started off as a LighterAndFluffier spin-off of the ''WebVideo/AngryVideoGameNerd'', at least until the "Dream Phone" episode. After the series went into hiatus for a couple of years while James Rolfe worked on the ''Film/AngryVideoGameNerdTheMovie'', ''Board James'' returned to the eponymous character alone, with Motherfucker Mike and Bad Luck Bootsy nowhere to be found and an overarching story arc about James's SanitySlippage and whether he killed his friends [[spoiler:if they even existed to begin with]]...
