* A major RunningGag in ''Manga/SoulEater'' is the ViewerGenderConfusion regarding the character of Crona. Later on, it's revealed that Medusa Gorgon doesn't even consider Crona human despite being her child.

** ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' becomes this to the Franchise/KamenRider franchise as a whole. [[spoiler:As it turns out, almost all of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] were humans that ate the fruits from Helheim Forest. Unlike the past human turned monsters from other Kamen Rider shows, save for KamenRiderWizard, they can't be saved (though it becomes all the more darker that it's revealed that they can be saved). It becomes worse when the Beat Riders are eventually blamed by the public for all monster attacks occurring in the city.]] Considering that Creator/GenUrobuchi is the head writer, many saw something like this coming.

** The BigBad GLaDOS has a hysterical black comedy streak a mile wide. In the finale, you disassemble her cores (who are also individually hilarious) and destroy her. In the sequel, not only do you learn that [=GLaDOS=] has been reliving that "death" ''millions'' of times since you killed her ([[UnreliableNarrator though you only have her word on this]]), but also that Aperture Science was killing people for decades before you came along, Chell has been trapped in the facility since she was a pre-teen, [=GLaDOS=] was made by uploading Cave Johnson's secretary (in the deleted content it's clear this was against her will), and that the facility has ''thousands'' of other test subjects to be tormented and murdered.

** Before "Remembrance of the Daleks" aired, fans constantly made jokes about how the Daleks' greatest weakness was stairs, as the way they were constructed pretty much prevented them from climbing up the stairs. The cliffhanger of "Remembrance of the Daleks" involves the Seventh Doctor being stuck in between a locked door at the top of a stairway, and a Dalek that is levitating upwards towards him. This was re-introduced in Series 1 in 2005 when a Dalek was mocked for not being able to climb up the stairs, only to proceed to levitate up the stairs.

** There's also the matter of the rebellion only sending thirty ships to destroy the Death Star in ''A New Hope''. ''Rogue One'' reveals [[spoiler:during the battle where the Death Star plans were stolen, the entire Blue Squadron was destroyed and both Red and Gold suffered heavy losses. Those thirty ships were all the rebellion had left.]]

* In most versions of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', the Turtles' famous color-coded ninja headbands are one of the most unabashedly goofy elements of the Turtles' design. Even when the franchise is at its [[DarkerAndEdgier Darkest and Edgiest]], there's something inherently silly about seeing four giant turtles walking around a crowded city wearing nothing but tiny cloth scarves around their heads. But in [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIDW the IDW comic book series]], Peter Laird explores the idea that the Turtles weren't just randomly mutated by ooze, but are actually {{reincarnation}}s of Hamato Yoshi's four biological children who were murdered by Oroku Saki. When they were alive, Yoshi's sons always wore red, blue, purple and orange, respectively; as the Turtles, they still wear those colors as a marker of their previous lives, even if they don't understand why.

** Pokedex entries in the ''Pokémon'' games often feature elements about the power of the Pokémon in question, many of which have gross violations of physics, biology or gameplay (Magcargo's body is 18,000 degrees Fahrenheit or all the many tales of ghost type and psychic type Pokémon having supernatural abilities). The ''Sun and Moon'' pokedex entries are much darker and more realistic about the Pokémon's strengths, abilities and appearances (such as Bewear being so strong that it has killed trainers or Glailie dislocating its jaw when it mega evolves). These entries also confirm that some Pokémon eat each other.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' reveals that the Mega Evolution mechanic ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' introduced isn't some benign power up. It turns Pokemon into mindless, heartless, fighting machines and causes some of them injurious amounts of pain if the trainer does not have a strong bond with the Pokemon. Mega Glailie also dislocates its jaw showing that some of these transformations are very painful to go through.

** The Tau when first introduced in late 3rd Edition, were unequivocally the very closest thing the 40k verse had to an entire race of good guys. A heroic goal of fighting for the Greater Good of their empire, very honorable, and completely willing to negotiate peacefully with other races (if occasionally done while the Imperial planetary governor was signing peaceful surrender due to staring down the wrong end of a Railgun barrel), to the point that one fluff quote in their first Codex, had an Eldar Farseer mention that the Tau were probably the Galaxy's best hope. This actually ''annoyed'' fans as they felt they were too good for a setting that was supposed to be, well.. grim and dark. Come latter editions, and Tau were Retconned to possibly using brainwashing devices disguised as simple "communication helms", forced reeducation camps or worse, and that their Ethereals may not be as good and noble as they want others to believe.
