Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/{{Jewelpet}}''
** ''Anime/JewelpetTwinkle'': Two examples.
*** Between the second time Alma attacks the heroes and going back to hunting for Jewel Stones, there's episode 40, a very silly episode about a Jewelpet getting lost in the human world and the chaos he creates in Akari's school.
*** Smack in the middle of the very serious TournamentArc there's a Valentine's Day episode, where everyone takes a break and HilarityEnsues at Akari's school due to Valentine's chocolate and a love potion gone awry.
** ''Anime/JewelpetSunshine'': The show decided to have a very strange and inconsequential BizarroEpisode (39) right before going all heavy and character-driven for the last thirteen episodes.
** ''Anime/LadyJewelpet'': Episodes 27 and 28 are very airy and comedy-driven for this show; they come after the conflict of Momona's shaky status at the Jewel Palace and Ruby's guilt about it gets resolved.

* There's one that happens towards the end of the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI serial ''ComicBook/GoldenEyesAndHerHeroBill''. It involves Golden Eyes, an ambulance driver, spending a week away from the front lines at an OrphanageOfLove - which she [[PetTheDog bankrolls]] using money she got from selling jewelry she acquired during a bout of GoGoEnslavement she suffered in the previous arc.

* ''Manga/BlackButler'' has a couple breather manga chapters. After the UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper arc and [[spoiler: Madam Red's]] funeral we're treated to a much more lighthearted chapter where Ciel's aunt and his [[ArrangedMarriage fiancee]] [[KissingCousins Elizabeth]] stop by for a visit.

** After the ship arc, which had a high body count and several revelations [[spoiler: (with the Undertaker revealing himself to not only be a Deserter Shinigami, but to also be behind the zombie creations out of a twisted desire to experiment)]], the next chapter revolves around Easter and has the cast get together for a whacky, lighthearted egg hunt.

Added DiffLines:

* Many fans consider ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' Volume 4 a Breather ''Season'', coming off of the craziness that was Volume 3, allowing for world-building and character development and keeping the body count ''very'' low. However, it's something of a YMMV as some find it to suffer from ArcFatigue.

* AlanMoore's run on ''Comicbook/SwampThing'' had several of these, most notably "Rite of Spring", which is pretty much entirely about hallucinogenic plant-on-human sex. Yes, ''that's'' what qualifies as a breather for the [[DarkerAndEdgier series]]. At least no one's getting tortured, killed, or raped.

* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'' could be viewed as this for the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series, being a comparatively laid-back story (apart from the Dementors) which does not have anything directly to do with Voldemort and immediately precedes [[spoiler:his return]] in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire''. It also comes after ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets Chamber of Secrets]]'', which is an ActionizedSequel involving students being attacked by a monster, leading to a year-long reign of terror which threatens to close the school. In comparison, Sirius Black coming after Harry in particular is rather low stakes.

** Season 7 finale "Reincarnation" is a [[ParodyEpisode playful]] cool-down after the much more dramatic "Overclockwise" that preceded it.
** "Murder on the Planet Express" is a weird example. It's a mostly comedic episode that comes off the [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments more]] [[TearJerker emotional]] "Game of Tones", but is filled with NightmareFuel and BlackComedy.

to:

** After the famously [[TearJerker emotional]] episodes "Lethal Inspection" and "The Late Philip J Fry", Season 6 followed them up with "That Darn Katz" -- a largely comedic episode about [[ADayInTheLimelight Amy and Nibbler]] trying to stop cats [[CatsAreMean (which are actually evil aliens)]] from enslaving the human race.
-->'''From a review by Zack Handlen of A.V. Club''':"...'That Darn Katz!' may not have pulled on the heart strings like the last two episodes, but this one was firing on all cylinders and we need episodes like this, just silly larks about cats taking over the world, to give us breathing time between the crying jags."

* Similarly on his follow up Podcast/Revolutions Podcast, Duncan would often include "supplementals" that deal with one person or topic in detail and don't follow the otherwise relatively straight chronological approach. Duncan does this both to give his listeners a break form the sometimes extremely gory details of e.g. the French Revolutions and to make pauses shorter - apparently producing a supplemental is easier and faster than producing a regular episode.
