* The 2016 ''ComicBook/TheFlintstones'' comic, being a DarkerAndEdgier BlackComedy gives us some very grim explanations for traits of gags from the show, such as Fred's "Yabba-Dabba Do" {{Catchphrase}} being a nonsense mantra for his post-traumatic stress disorder from his time as a veteran, how all of the animal appliances are sapient and hate being used as such (the word "appliance" to them even equals to an explicit word), so they're essentially enslaved, and once they become obsolete, they're "[[DeadlyEuphemism recycled]]", and the Great Gazoo is an extraterrestrial game warden who protects the native wildlife (read: humans) from alien threats.

You'll hardly believe this is the comic of a family comedy with a LaughTrack.
*You know how Jughead from ArchieComics wears that crown hat thingy? In TheForties when the comic began it was an actual trend to cut up fedoras; decades later this is forgotten and Jughead wears a funny hat because he's Jughead. ArchieComics2016 on the other hand has him as the son of a wealthy family who was swindled out of everything and became poor. He cut up the hat he once wore as a sign of being all high-society.

* Comicbook/BlackPanther originally joined Comicbook/TheAvengers after ''Comicbook/CaptainAmerica'' #100, where Cap asked him to become an Avenger as a personal favor. Decades later, Creator/{{Christopher Priest|Comics}}'s ''Black Panther'' run revealed that T'Challa only agreed to join so he could spy on the Avengers, a revelation that subsequently formed a rift between him and his teammates.

* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' has Sheldon knocking on a door three times before he enters a room. This stays funny until "The Hot Tub Comtamination", where he tells Penny that he does this so that the people on the other side could get dressed in case they were doing amorous activities. This is due to a time when he came home early as a teen and walked in on his father having sex with someone else behind his mother's back.

** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' has Yondu remark that Peter Quill's father was a "jackass" when one of the Ravagers laments they didn't deliver Quill to him. Come ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', [[spoiler: Yondu is proven right when Quill meets his biological father Ego the Living Planet, who wants to eliminate all life in the universe by replacing it with extensions of his Celstial self. Yondu even dies trying to save Peter, meaning that he truly became Quill's father figure after he was abducted. It also has the effect of taking the RunningGag of Yondu going soft and making it so he was fiercely protective of Peter and helped him learn to survive on his own]].

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Hodor has consistently been portrayed as a hulking simpleton with childlike intelligence, and his GentleGiant persona has always been used for comic relief--as has his [[PokemonSpeak inability to say anything but his own name]]. The books and the TV show had long cryptically hinted that there was ''something'' more to Hodor than the Starks suspected, with the eventual revelation that his birth name was actually "Walder" ([[AdaptationNameChange "Wylis" in the show]]). Then come the events of the WhamEpisode "The Door". It turns out that Hodor was once of perfectly normal intelligence, but suffered a massive seizure when [[spoiler: Bran [[MentalTimeTravel seized control of his younger self's mind]], inadvertently splitting his mind between two time periods]]. He can only say the word "Hodor" because [[spoiler: he heard Meera Reed shouting ''"Hold the door!"'' when he glimpsed into the future]].

** Jaqen H'ghar isn't exactly a comic relief character, but his odd speaking style initially comes off as a simple FunnyForeigner schtick. In particular, he doesn't seem to know how to use pronouns, [[VerbalTic consistently referring to himself as "a man" (never "I" or "me") and addressing Arya as "a girl" (never "you")]]. But as we delve further into the philosophy and worldview of the Faceless Men, we learn that there's a genuinely chilling reason that Jaqen talks like that: the Faceless Men believe in [[LossOfIdentity rejecting their sense of self]] so that they can better serve the organization, and they're expected to [[ThatManIsDead shed their old identities]] so that they can [[MasterOfDisguise adopt new ones]]. As a veteran Faceless Man, he's so detached from his own identity that he genuinely just sees himself as "a man".

* 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.

* One of DLC chapters in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' allowed the player to earn an item that could change one female character's class to Witch, a powerful spellcaster with ability to teleport. Said class previously only appeared in [[NoExportForYou Japanese-only]] ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'', so many players were eager to change their units into Witches... until the next game, which happened to be [[VideoGameRemake remake]] of ''Gaiden'', revealed how they gain their power: [[DealWithTheDevil by sacrificing their souls to the Fell God Duma]]. And to make it even worse, ''[[HumanSacrifice not all of them did it of their own will]]''. Suddenly, giving that Witch's Mark to your in-game little sister doesn't seem like a good idea...
