* The ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots'' episode "Tip of the Iceberg"contained what happened to be a heartwarming moment when Dr. Morocco handed the Burns family a painting of Chief Burns's grandfather. [[spoiler: "Changes" revealed that that he didn't do it out of any kindness, but as a way to sneak in a spy camera so he could spy on the family and the Rescue Bots.]]

* Season 4 of ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'' features a lot of [[spoiler:[[Heartwarming/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}} heartwarming moments]] with the Scarlet Spider where he learns to trust others and open up to Peter, his friends, and Aunt May--which became a lot less so in with "The New Sinister 6, Part 1", where it was revealed that he was really TheMole for ComicBook/DoctorOctopus, meaning those moments were really him playing Peter to make his betrayal hurt worse.]]

** Theepisode "Trade Ya": Twilight Sparkle decides not to sell her books, saying that just because they don't need to be read again doesn't mean they don't possess value; they're a part of her history and what made her who she was, and were quite precious. Four episodes later in "Twilight's Kingdom", they along with the rest of the Golden Oak Library were destroyed by Tirek.

** In the season one episode "Call of the Cutie", Scootaloo tells Diamond Tiara she's 'stuck being stuck up' as a ShutUpHannibal. We find out ''much'' later that [[spoiler:she's ''literally'' stuck, as her mother was browbeating and emotionally abusing her to be a stuck up RichBitch like her.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' episode "Mass Transit Trouble", an episode banned after the Oklahoma City bombing and 9/11 due to its plot of Robotnik plotting to bomb an airport and a subway station, becomes even more uncomfortable to watch in the wake of the ISIS attacks on Brussels Airport and a nearby subway station.

* ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'''s early episodes in general. The show got [[CerebusSyndrome considerably darker around the middle of the first season]] and put a lot of focus on how miserable most of the main cast are. A lot of these traits (Clay's drinking, Blobert'a StepfordSmiler tendencies, etc.) are still present in the early episodes though. They're just played for laughs and not explored very deeply. Making those scenes a little cringe-worthy if you watch them after you've seen season 2 and especially season 3.

** In Season 1's "Look Before You Sleep", Twilight says that she's never had a sleepover before and calls out Applejack and Rarity when their bickering almost ruins her first slumber party. The Season 5 episode "Amending Fences" puts the whole episode in a different perspective when we see that Twilight had friends in Canterlot and never had a sleepover with any of them. It becomes even worse when we see that Twilight leaving Canterlot left an emotional scar on her friends, especially Moondancer.

** A ''lot'' of the various Spike gags became somewhat sadder in hindsight after "Equestria Games" revealed he has serious self-esteem issues.
** Big Macintosh turning into an Alicorn prince(ss?) in "Do Princesses Dream Of Magic Sheep" is taken in an entirely different light when you watch "Brotherhooves Social" and Mac is revealed to feel ''seriously'' unappreciated and inadequate compared to his sister.
