* FightingGame Anime like ''StreetFighter'' and ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' are notorious for featuring KiAttacks much more powerful than the games would suggest. (And in reverse, when ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' was turned into a FightingGame, Ranma's extraordinarily powerful KiAttacks were substantially weakened.)

** TheMovie has three main monsters and countless creatures springing from Ivan Ooze. It should be noted also that the rest of the budget was used for the Rangers' suits (they all get breastplates, while some of them gain special abilities) and the special effects, which step up from PeopleInRubberSuits to ConspicuousCGI.

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series tend to have one of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] become a {{Mook}} near the end of the season, with multiple costumes made for bigger fight scenes. Their movies also tend to have better wirework, more complex action scenes, and more explosions.

** Happened before that. The Creator/PeterCushing [[Film/DrWhoAndTheDaleks Dalek]] [[Film/DaleksInvasionEarth2150AD movies]] really make a Dalek invasion look like one ''should,'' the first movie even being a remake of the Daleks' show debut, making the very same story seem much more epic. The movies are often reviled by fans for their deviation from canon (Cushing's First Doctor is apparently a human named Dr. Who, primarily) but at the time, it was amazing. They looked at least as good as the 1980s episodes, with a more 'summer blockbuster' feel, at a time when the TV show hadn't worked its way up to color, or having the ''matte paintings'' that were supposed to make the hallways look longer '''[[SpecialEffectFailure actually go all the way to the floor.]]'''

* WebOriginal/JonTron has also received a significant budget boost. Unlike the Critic, there isn't much of a difference in terms of content. He just has more money to indulge in all the [[BizarroShow batshit insanity]] that goes down.

* Despite being Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s most popular and successful show, ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' has always hid its modest budget with [[LimitedAnimation sparse movement]] made up of strong drawings. When it came time to make ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobSquarepantsMovie'', the crew went all-out with Creator/JohnKricfalusi-[[DerangedAnimation inspired animation]], expansive use of [[RogerRabbitEffect mixed-media]] and a [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome lush orchestral score]] in place of the series' library of stock music.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasAndTheMagicRailroad'' recreated the series' model train set at double the size on a Toronto sound stage. [[UncannyValley Still couldn't get the faces to move, though]].

* The first "season" of ''WebVideo/LasagnaCat'' was a relatively forward affair, never going beyond using simple and basic [[ChromaKey greenscreen effects]] and actors in simple costumes. After a SequelGap of nine years, the second "season" arrives and goes all out, using more complicated greenscreen effects, more elaborate costumes, and even sets, props, and several on-location shoots, and does stuff like recreating a whole segment of the pilot episode of ''Series/MiamiVice'' practically shot for shot and creating a whole miniature town in breakfast products only to blow it up.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' is this trope in spades. For example, the Daleks are galaxy spanning empires that can field thousands of units - and yet the most we ever saw were the same four or so Daleks costumes paraded around in a circle to make them seem more numerous... until the 2005 revival, where the climax of the series featured a Big Budget long shot with millions of Daleks all lusting for the destruction of the Doctor and the extermination of the human race. It made every fan weep tears of joy.
** Ironically (or appropriately), all those special effects that all knocked our socks off 10 years ago? They haven't aged very well.

** The show's Dalek episodes benefitted from this film as well - the rainbow-colored Daleks don't look so garish in black and white, so suddenly the show had more props to work with.

* Both [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000TheMovie the movie]] and the Netflix revival of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' benefited from this trope, but the Netflix revival showcased this the most, with the Crow, Tom Servo and Gypsy puppets getting major overhauls.

* Prior to ''WebOriginal/DemoReel'', Creator/DougWalker purchased an actual studio space for it and other Chicago-based Channel Awesome productions. When ''Demo Reel'' tanked and Doug brought WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic back, the bigger budget went toward a green screen, more sketches with an expanded cast, and amazing props/costumes. Quite an upgrade from being filmed in Doug's parents' basement. This makes the episodes that return to the primary original format of "Critic just sits and reviews a movie" jarringly different from the sketch-based reviews.
