* In some episodes, ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' will take a break from teaching science to provide entertainment and character development in it's episodes: "My Fair Jet", "Jet's First Halloween", "Date Night", "Jet's Time Machine" and "Mindy in Space" all qualify for this trope, all of them having little to no actual curriculum (even though Jet's Time Machine provided an important Aesop and Jet's First Halloween tried to teach viewers about harvest moons)

** 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.

* Chapter 64 of ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' has the heroes relax after defeating the Erste Empire, going back to the hero's hometown to celebrate and later muse over what they're going to do now that they've defeated them. This is also one of the few chapters to be dialogue-only with no battles whatsoever.

** Chapter 8 has Sazh and Vanille walking around Cocoon's theme park, overall taking a break and nothing out to fight them. Most of the chapter is spent checking out the theme park and chocobos. Then the end of the chapter has [[spoiler:Dajh be reunited with his father and immediately turning into a crystal; Sazh learns that Vanille is partially responsible for Dajh becoming a l'Cie to begin with; and both having attempted suicide]].

** Chapter 11, pure and simple. [[spoiler:The party has left the almost claustrophobic atmosphere of Cocoon and is on Gran Pulse.]] The location is nothing but a huge, free expanse of land that the player and party can spend as much time on as they want, fighting battles or just exploring. It's also the part where the game really opens up and the sidequests become available. The chapter even begins with the party just going about their way, scavenging something to eat and overall relaxing. Once [[spoiler:the player manages to get Hope his Eidolon]], it's basically smooth-sailing for a long while before things really get bad against in Chapter 12.

* Chapter 8 of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' has Sazh and Vanille going to Cocoon's theme park, featuring an absolutely gorgeous FMV cutscene. [[spoiler: Shortly after this, the shit hits the fan - Dajh reappears and just as quickly turns to crystal, Sazh finds out that Vanille is partly responsible for turning his son into a l'Cie, and by the end of the chapter both characters have tried to kill themselves.]] The ''actual'' Breather Chapter is the tenth, where the crew (and the players) enjoy some leisurely DungeonCrawling after the massive {{wham| Episode}}s of chapter 9.

Chapter 10 is a more action-packed breather episode for the tenth, entire party and player. After the [[TheReveal heavy revelations]] in the previous chapter, the party is simply doing a [[DungeonCrawling dungeon crawl]] and coming to terms with what they've learned. Even with the usually energetic Snow having [[HeroicBSOD a lot to deal with]] [[spoiler:and a rather surprising battle against Cid Raines, who turns out to be a l'Cie as well]], the area is calmer than the marathon-esque run to gather your party together in Chapter 9. While the chapter ends with [[spoiler:Fang having a breakdown and obtains her Eidolon]], the party leaves the chapter much more optimistic than they were upon entering it.

* The [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime adaptation of]] ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' featured a comedic episode centering on the State Military members directly under Roy Mustang's command, right in the center of an intense plot arc involving a rebellion in a remote city.

* The first episode of each ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' arc is usually nice and light-hearted, spending most of its time displaying anime comedy tropes, or simply showing a slice of life in Hinamizawa village. The episode will usually end on a slightly chilly note... And next episode, it gets dark. ''Big time''. ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' is like this too, following a similar episode structure to ''Higurashi'', except the spike from cheerful to fearsome is much sharper.

* ''Manga/SchoolLive'' had a random BeachEpisode (especially notable as the series takes place ''during a ZombieApocalypse'') set on top of the school's roof. In the next episode [[spoiler:the characters find an emergency manual about zombies and learn the government knew all along]]. The manga included no such chapter-- the closest thing is the fanservicey cover arts that [[CoversAlwaysLie have nothing to do with the manga]]. In comparison the manga chapter preceding TheReveal is [[TearJerker anything but cute]]. It involves Miki being told why dogs shouldn't be mentioned around Yuki. [[spoiler:Yuki once befriended a stray puppy however it was [[RaisingTheSteaks bit]] and Megu-nee threw it away. Zombies return to places they remember most so the puppy ended up [[NightmareFuel scratching on their classroom door.]] It ends with implications that Kurumi [[InfantImmortality had to kill it]].]] The OneshotCharacter was made into an [[AscendedExtra major anime character]] named "Taromaru".

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': New Testament Volume 11. It comes immediately after the Magic God Othinus arc, which took place on a global scale. The volume is limited to Academy City, and revolves around a purely personal conflict.



* ''Literature/EdenGreen'', a novel in which the main character's best friend is infected with an alien needle parasite and their city is overrun by horrifying monsters, takes a break for a few pages so the title character can 'set her affairs in order' (translation: clean her apartment).
* Two-booked ''Orbital Conspiracy'' arc of ''Literature/FeliksNetAndNika'' is rather light, but it happens after two MindScrew books and before creepy horror story.
