* ''WesternAnimation/TheIntruderII'' has taken this route and outdoes [[WesternAnimation/TheIntruder its predecessor]] in term of being a WhamEpisode. Whereas the original ''Intruder'' was perfectly content in killing TOM 1, this has seen that the Intruder has taken over TOM 1's body, [[spoiler: assimilate SARA's core, gloat about [[KilledOffscreen killing TOM 4]], TOM 5 rip off his own arm, and the ''Absolution'' is destroyed. There's also a touch of TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou thrown into the bumpers as they go from flashing "RED ALERT", to garbed text as SARA "dies", to error messages after the ''Absolution''[='=]s destruction. However, [[EarnYourHappyEnding things end on a positive note]], as TOM managed to back up SARA and upload her onto a ship he finds and she building him a new arm.]]

** The show in general is one of the darkest things Disney has produced in [[AvertedTrope modern]] [[ValuesDissonance times]] openly mentioning [[NeverSayDie death]] PlayedForDrama and PlayedForLaughs, sometimes at the same time. BlackComedy, blood, gore (although bloodless in this case), [[BigScrewedUpFamily horrible families]] and what has to be one of the biggest off-screen body counts in kids shows ever, and probably one of the highest on-screen too.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'': Although the series itself is much more lighter in comparison to the film series, it is this to every other Disney Junior show, as it doesn't have any qualms about mentioning death, many of the fight scenes, although not graphic are rather painful, and some of the episode plots are very realistic, with Cant Wait to be Queen being the best example with Janja's attempted kidnapping of Kiara being very intense.

Later episodes seem to have these moments very frequently with main characters in mortal peril and suggestive statements that really push this almost out of preschool friendly territory.

*** The show itself turns dark and edgy in Season 2 once the [[MythArc myth arc]] begins to kick in, with its GrandFinale featuring [[spoiler: an actual apocalypse on Earth transpiring.]]

*** This goes to the point of being riddled with several [[CerebusRetcon cerebus retcons]] of previous jokes and quirks of certain characters. That's right, season 2 its so dark and edgy it turns the first season darker and edgier.

** There are also the episodes addressing Arnold's parents ("Parents' Day" and "The Journal"). "Parents' Day" is just straight up sad for the most part, given the subject matter. "The Journal" does have its fair share of comedic moments, but the ForegoneConclusion that Miles and Stella will eventually go missing and be unable to properly raise their son makes the whole thing kind of sad. [[spoiler: The two parter does end on an optimistic note given that Arnold finds a map detailing where his parents actually went. This was supposed to be a hook for the second series movie, which unfortunately never got made.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'': Although the series itself is meant to be more brighter, Episode 4 is noticeably more dark, showing a dead body onscreen, a very realistic plot, and a scene where Janja delibraetly attempts to kidnap Kiara, in addition to the Aesop being given more bluntly rather than subtly.
