"Additional characterization" doesn't count as this trope, nor is the premise of the Jigen movie; "assassin gunning for our hero(es)" is a common plot for a normal episode of the series.
** ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine'' is about building the characterization of Fujiko Mine. ''Anime/GravestoneOfDaisukeJigen'' is a sequel movie about Jigen Daisuke. The gang has to save Jigen from an international assassin who creates graves before killing the target.

* The original GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' could count as this as not only did the world come second closest to ending (this was overtaken by the events of the second finale), but it ended with a RelationshipUpgrade that a lot of fans had been wanting to see.

** Some of GarfieldSpecials are a bit more dramatic than the comic strip. For example, "Here Comes Garfield" has Garfield saving Odie from the pound, "Garfield on the Town" has Garfield reuniting with his family in the alleys, and "Garfield in the Rough" has Garfield fighting a ''panther''. And then there's ''ComicBook/GarfieldHis9Lives''.]

* Manga/OnePiece: Even though the Strawhats do usually end up having to save entire nations and islands in the main series, a few of the movies still follow this trope. In [[Anime/OnePieceFilmStrongWorld Strong World]] the entire East Blue is a stake, and in [[Anime/OnePieceFilmZ Z]] the VillainAntagonist plans to [[spoiler: completely destroy the New World and everyone in it]]. The marketing reflected this: [[NoExceptYes these two were titled 'One Piece Film', whereas the others used 'One Piece The Movie']].

* The ''HeyArnold'' movie. The show itself never features any of the characters saving anything other than their treehouse and usually deals with problems faced by individual characters. And yet when the movie rolls around, suddenly everything needs to be "bigger" [[note]]though try telling that to most of the side characters, who are mostly {{Demoted To Extra}}s[[/note]]. ** The planned 2nd movie was supposed to be even bigger, involving no less than a trip to a jungle to find the titular character's [[ParentalAbandonment missing parents]]. It got ScrewedByTheNetwork.

* The various "Wayne's World" sketches on ''SaturdayNightLive'' were about a public access cable TV show put on by a couple of teenage boys. So, naturally, the ''WaynesWorld'' movie is about underdogs overcoming [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corrupt network executives]] and saving the world.

* The ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies1980s'' movie ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppiesAndTheLegendOfBigPaw'' had villains that wanted to take over the world rather than just control a pound of puppies.

** It would normally qualify, as most episodes are slice-of-life, but this series always goes big for season premieres (and lately season finales.) It's the BigDamnMovie compared to the one with [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero Twilight worrying about a late assignment]] or the one with [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E12CallOfTheCutie Apple Bloom being the last in her class to get a cutie mark]], but being a longer story with a BigBad, it gets compared to the ''other'' longer stories with a BigBad. [[AlphaBitch Sunset Shimmer]] just isn't up to the [[MadGod Discord]] standard.
