* ''LightNovel/ReZero'' Seems like a typical "Trapped in a fantasy world" with a NEET otaku protagonist. By the end of the first episode, he finds himself being able to come back from the death towards a certain checkpoint. The first major antagonist, Elsa Grienhert, manages to set the tone for the series as a whole, but in arc 3, its the witch cult from Rem and Ram's past as shown originally in Arc 2 where they make their debut, and turn a relatively darker then normal Light Novel series and turn into one of the Darkest Fantasy anime since Berserk, especially with the First Archbishop introduced, Betelgeuce Romanee-Canti, who [[spoiler: in the original Web Novel, killed and mangled Rem's dead body in mutiple increasingly twisted ways, eventually casuing Subaru to snap.]] This is made all of the more disturbing when [[WordOfGod the author, Tappei Nagatsuki]] states that of all the archbishops, Betelgeuce is the '''nicest''' one fo them.

** Devimon in the original ''Anime/DigimonAdventure''. While the first few episodes of the show were simple MonsterOfTheWeek, his appearance in Episode 8 introduced a proper, intertwined story arc and highlighted that the show wasn't kidding around anymore. It got somewhat lighter - though with even more MythArc - in the short 'Etemon arc' - only for Myotismon to firmly seal the series in CerebusSyndrome.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' was a dark series, but the events of the "Action Arc" (from Asuka's arrival up to Leliel/Twelfth Angel) were relatively light-hearted, with Misato and Kaji making amends, Shinji starting to gain some confidence, finding a family and friends and having a BelligerentSexualTension relationship with Asuka. Then came Bardiel/The Thirteenth Angel, and everything went to Hell.

** Mayuri Kurotsuchi is one of the most vile and depraved characters in the series, being responsible for the agonizing, torturous death of countless quincies including Uryu Ishida's grandfather, conducting experiments on living subjects and making use of human bombs (Who were [[BadBoss his subordinates]], by the way)- even exploding one of them just because "a bomb isn't supposed to come back". Even when his interests aligned with the heroes, he showed zero remorse for his crimes.

* {{Toriko}} was a light hearted food hunting series with the occasional creepy GT Robots, and the arc after them is another finding secret recipe mission much like prior to their appearances. [[GutPunch Then Tommyrod shows up]]. Unlike Starjun and Grinpatch, who were NobleDemon and AffablyEvil villains respectively, Tommyrod kept [[BodyHorror all kinds of hideous parasitic insects within his body]], who seriously tries to kill Toriko [[spoiler: and actually manages to win the fight, despite getting an awesome asskicking]], and from there the story gets much darker.

** Shukuro Tsukishima was this during the Xcution arc, though he did have a sense of humor. It just happened to be [[AxCrazy incredibly vicious]].




to:

* Julian Ainsworth serves as this for ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'' as the antagonist who sets the stage for the much [[DarkerAndEdgier grimmer and darker]] 3rei, where Miyu is captured and the protagonists transported to his CrapsackWorld. In addition to him and his cronies being played more seriously and capable of greater brutality than previous antagonists, his machinations means the SliceOfLife aspects of the series are largely removed, leading to comparisons of the previously lighthearted doujin to other, more typically dark Type-Moon material.

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has it's fair share: you have Beerus, the [[TheDreaded dreaded]] [[PersonOfMassDestruction God of Destruction]] (who [[AdaptationalVillainy is initially more of a jerk]] than he was in ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods''), then a revived Frieza (who is as callous as ever, [[BadBoss killing his own men and tormenting one as his personal training dummy]] amongst other things). However, [[EvilCounterpart Goku Black]] may just top them both; his first act bringing Future Trunks' Earth to the brink of extinction and setting up a darker tone for the series.

However, [[EvilCounterpart Goku Black]] may just top them both; is the first such example for ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''. While Frieza was the first technically malevolent antagonist of the series, his arc was lighthearted and threat diminished by Whis and Beerus' presence. Goku Black is played more seriously- his first act bringing Future Trunks' Earth to the brink of extinction and setting up a darker tone for the series.

* Over the course of the first half of ''Anime/MonColleKnights'', the heroes had no problem repeatedly beating back the LaughablyEvil VillainsOutShopping Count Collection, Bacchi, and Guuko. Then [[AntiVillain Dark Angel Zaha]] shows up and turns some of the heroes' monster friends against them by brainwashing them. And if that's not enough, there's [[BigBad Reda]], a DangerouslyGenreSavvy Dark Angel who is so powerful that even Shiru has problems with him, and he [[spoiler:actually plans to use the Monmon Items to summon Oroboros so he can have it [[OmnicidalManiac warp all life into a formless existence, with him as the omnipotent center of time and space]]]]. OhCrap...

** [[spoiler: Lysandre, Xerosic, and Team Flare in ''XY and Z''. Lysandre is notably a rare example of a villain who tricks a protagonist into working for him. The Evil Malamar are also petty terrifying, and episodes featuring them tend to have little or no humour.]]
