** Averted in ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth'' - all 5 cases are somehow tied in to one smuggling ring, although the third (notice a pattern) has the most tenuous link.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': ''Conquest'' Chapter 18 involves the party dealing with Izama, the [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} very eccentric]] Archduke of Izumo, and him forcing the Nohrian royal siblings to attend a peaceful party with the Hoshidan royal siblings. The humor of the situation gives a break from the serious tone found in the rest of the version's narrative.

* The ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episodes "Seahorse Seashell Party" and "Screams Of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q.", the former a WhamEpisode where [[TheChewToy Meg]] finally calls out her family for their horrible treatment of her and the latter a DarkerAndEdgier VerySpecialEpisode about DomesticAbuse. The next episode was a fun Brian & Stewie plot.

* The ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had not one, but two DarkerAndEdgier episodes within close proximity of each other: "Seahorse Seashell Party" Party", a WhamEpisode where [[TheChewToy Meg]] finally [[CallingTheOldManOut calls out her family for their horrible treatment of her]], and "Screams Of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q.", the former a WhamEpisode where [[TheChewToy Meg]] finally calls out her family for their horrible treatment of her and the latter a DarkerAndEdgier largely joke-free VerySpecialEpisode about DomesticAbuse. The next episode after that was a fun Brian & Stewie plot.

** ComicBook/SquirrelGirl comics are even more of a breather series than Deadpool. The character herself is FunPersonified, and her comics are considerably lighter than anything else in the Marvel Universe. This, and the way she [[LethalJokeCharacter effortlessly defeats]] major threats like SelfDemonstrating/{{Thanos}}, has contributed to her popularity.

* Most SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} comics can be thought of as a breather ''series'' for the Franchise/MarvelUniverse as a whole, which is usually a lot more serious. This is especially apparent when a Deadpool series does a tie-in issue to [[CrisisCrossover an event]]. Deadpool itself gets it's own with the Marvel Now run's Issue 20, ''Wakandian Vacation'' which follows the DarkerAndEdgier ''The Good, The, Bad, and, It's pretty bleak. So much so Deadpool on the first page states he needs a vacation and asks if they could throw another "archive" issue on the board. ''Wakandian Vacation'' by contrast is DenserAndWackier even by Deadpool stands involving a WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs BizarroEpisode featuring Deadpool trying to find Cosmic puzzle pieces.

** After a huge, epic adventure where they fought a wannabe god, and right before another huge, epic adventure where they declared war on the world government, the Strawhat pirates took part in a decidedly light-hearted and thoroughly odd series of athletic challenges known as the Davy Back Fight. Although the crew would have been enslaved by a rival pirate captain if they had lost, the overall tone and the severe goofiness of the arc's villain made the whole thing feel like a nice break in between more serious storylines.
** The Amazon arc is not as lighthearted as many examples, but compared to [[spoiler: Kuma blasting the Strawhats apart and both Impel Down and the Whitebeard War]] it's practically cotton candy.

Added DiffLines:

** The Zou arc is a relatively short, almost villain-free arc that serves as a cooldown from the much longer and intense Dressrosa arc that preceded it. The Straw Hats don't meet any opposition in the present; the one villain who does make an attempt at messing things up gets dispatched very quickly, and before the Straw Hats even meet him. The rest of the arc is spent on important exposition, introducing more allies for the Straw Hats, and setting up the next arc as well as other major events.

** Another Spidey example: In Spectacular Spider-Man, there was an arc called ''The Child Within'' with Harry Osborn's Green Goblin and Vermin. It was a six-part storyline with a seventh issue epilogue. It was emotionally brutal, heartwrenching, and helped set up Harry's death a year later. The issue following the epilogue, however, featured TWO Fabulous Frog-Men teaming up with Spidey to take on the White Rabbit and the Walrus, two villains bent on revenge against one of the Frog-men and his sidekick Spider-Man for defeats and humiliation suffered before.
