** In an amusing twist on this trope, many fans consider these utterly bizarre episodes [[MagnumOpus the best part]] [[JustHereForGodzilla of the series]]; the rest of the show is [[SoOkayItsAverage mediocre and forgettable]] at best, but these episodes are found to be [[SoBadItsGood utterly hilarious and fun to watch]].

* ''{{Anime/Kochikame}}'' has the episode in which a "hard boiled" detective shows up and completely changes the episode in order to make himself feel more hard boiled (eventually chief Ohara gets so upset over having the same scene repeated several times that he [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere has Honda replace him]]). Needless to say, there's NoFourthWall in this episode--he even gets to pop up during the OnTheNext segment (quite literally, too--Ryotsu has to force him out).

** "Legend of the Cheese Maidens", which the authors admit was originally intended to be a non-canon erotic story that went off the rails, ''starts'' in the bedroom of two of the heroes (a married couple) talking about their sexual turn-ons, but then devolves into a peculiar story involving cheerleaders, space aliens, and urban legends. ** "Lady Luck" is about a pair of thieves who take their pet goldfish, in a bowl, with them on a bank robbery because they believe it will bring them good luck. Opinion is divided on whether it is more strange or less than "Cheese Maidens".

* ''Corpse Party -THE ANTHOLOGY- Sachiko's Game of Love ♥ Hysteric Birthday 2U'' from the ''VideoGame/CorpseParty'' series. The main games are about avoiding horrible, bloody deaths by the hands of an EnfantTerrible. In ''2U'' you're throwing her a birthday party, filled with {{Fanservice}}, meta humour, and general wacky hijinks, that every character promptly forgets once they're dumped back into their regular old gore-fest (save for a vague reference here and there in ''Blood Drive'').

* ''Series/{{Community}}'' has some episodes that are surprisingly bizarre, "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" is a musical Christmas episode done in stop motion, another episode was mostly animated in 8-bit, and The Zombie episode certainly came out of left field.

* ''Series/{{Community}}'' has some episodes that are surprisingly bizarre, ''Series/{{Community}}'': ** "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" is a musical Christmas episode done in stop motion, another episode motion and set inside Abed's mind. The characters end up journeying into outer space to find the true meaning of Christmas, and Chang is a talking snowman for some reason. ** "GI Jeff" was mostly animated in 8-bit, and The Zombie episode certainly came out centres around ''Franchise/GIJoe'' versions of left field.the characters. [[spoiler:It, too, is in a character's mind, but this time it's Jeff's.]] ** "Epidemiology", in which most of the students become zombies. This is the only confirmed supernatural event in the series, though there are some other instances of MaybeMagicMaybeMundane. ** "App Development and Condiments" has an app beta test turn the school into a '70s sci-fi-movie-esque dystopia, in which people with 5 "MeowMeowBeenz" rule the school and people with only 1 get exiled to the Outlands. ** "Regional Holiday Music", a ''Series/{{Glee}}'' parody with characters constantly bursting into song.

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' had ''Sailor Moon R'''s episode 67, a BeachEpisode that featured the main characters having an island vacation in which Chibiusa befriends a dinosaur and the main characters use their superpowers to save said dinosaurs from a volcano. Yea, that's right. The main characters fight a volcano to save a pair of dinosaurs. The show normally didn't venture into such fantastical territory being acceptable, and the existence of ''living dinosaurs'' never comes up in the show again. It's generally considered one of the most pointless episodes of the entire show since absolutely nothing happens to progress the plot or flesh out the main characters. Creator/DiC [[MissingEpisode never dubbed it]] into English and Creator/ADVFilms left it off its English subbed DVD releases entirely, as it wasn't in the masters obtained from Creator/DiC. (they initially claimed Creator/ToeiAnimation didn't give them the episode due to Creator/NaokoTakeuchi not liking it) Most people only complained that it made their DVD collections incomplete, as opposed to genuinely missing the episode. (Though with Creator/{{Viz}}'s rights acquisition, it will finally see release stateside.)

* The "Rock Zombies" arc of ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' features Chase's new boss, a radio shock-jock, attempting to take over Los Angeles with a cursed song that turns anyone who listens to it (and who has undergone plastic surgery) into a zombie. OutOfCharacter moments abound (like Karolina apparently being over Xavin, Klara becoming a gamer girl, and ''the Staff of One eating someone''), the BigBad just disappears without any real comeuppance, the zombie spell is reversed off-panel, and none of the events of the arc are ever mentioned again.

(Granted, this is the penultimate story arc before the series was cancelled.)

* ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'' has its annual AprilFoolsDay episode, in which blatant, bizarre goofs are deliberately inserted into the episode, and the sharp-eyed viewer who spotted the most won a prize.

* Issue 34 of the first incarnation of Creator/MarvelComics' ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' consisted of nothing but humorous takes on the Franchise/MarvelUniverse and its characters (a good number of them one-panel stories, even), culminating with "What Will Happen When StanLee Reads This Issue?" [[spoiler:He fires the entire staff. [[{{Catchphrase}} 'Nuff said]].]] Issue 34 of the revived series did it again, although without the epilogue.
