** To a lesser extent, the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]] as well. Overall, it's more lighthearted and less serious than the games, never really going into the deeper themes and focusing on the innocent adventures of Ash and co.; however, the show frequently has some darker episodes, especially if a villain other than the Rocket trio is involved. Notably, the Original Series tended to shift in tone dramatically depending on who was on writing duty (mainly, anything Takeshi Shudo wrote had a good chance of being dramatic), so there are episodes where a Pokémon almost dies airing alongside ones filled to the brim with [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness the early anime's rather wacky, bizarre brand of comedy]], and ''Best Wishes'' had characters with rather exaggerated personality traits, and an Ash who had TookALevelInDumbass, but at the same time made [[GoldfishPoopGang the Team Rocket trio]] way more competent, made Team Rocket in general a looming ArcVillain, and had relatively small amounts of filler, at least in season one; though every season undergoes this to an extent, especially if a villain other than the Rocket trio is involved. This also happened with entire generations of the show, with ''XY'' and ''XYZ'' coming right off the heels of [[FillerArc the Decolora Islands arc]], being noticeably more dramatic, featuring tons of CharacterDevelopment, and had the whole region being in peril by the end, only to follow it up with the SliceOfLife format, DenserAndWackier ''Sun and Moon'' (which itself sharply contrasts the massive turn for the dramatic that its [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon game companion]] took). Another seasonal example can be seen within generation five, with the aforementioned Decolora Islands season coming right after ''Best Wishes'', even returning Jessie, James, and Meowth to their old incompetent selves and reducing the competence of their Pokémon by several levels with no explanation.

This also happened with entire generations of the show, with ''XY'' and ''XYZ'' coming right off the heels of [[FillerArc the Decolora Islands arc]], and being noticeably more dramatic, dramatic than previous series, featuring tons of CharacterDevelopment, and had a four-part series starring a teenage protagonist who [[spoiler:becomes an UnwittingPawn of the whole region being in peril by BigBad]], peaking towards the end, end of ''XYZ'' only to follow it up with the SliceOfLife format, DenserAndWackier ''Sun and Moon'' (which itself sharply contrasts the massive turn for the dramatic that its [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon game companion]] took).

* The ''Film/JamesBond'' films have done this. Creator/SeanConnery and Creator/GeorgeLazenby's Bonds were quite serious, whereas Creator/RogerMoore's Bond was more lighthearted. Then, Creator/TimothyDalton's Bond took an even DarkerAndEdgier turn, more akin to Creator/IanFleming's original novels. Then, Creator/PierceBrosnan's Bond took a middle ground between Connery and Moore, before Creator/DanielCraig's Bond took a darker tone again ([[RevisitingTheRoots with his later 2 films emulating his predecessors a little more]]).

* Due to ExecutiveMeddling, the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' films became this way. Creator/TimBurton's take on the franchise was dark and gothic. There was a bit of cheese in [[{{Film/Batman}} the 1989 film,]] but his follow-up, ''Film/BatmanReturns,'' was almost depressing. Later, WarnerBros had replaced Burton with Creator/JoelSchumacher to make the franchise more marketable. ''Film/BatmanForever'' and ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' increased the camp value, but it brought the franchise to a halt for the rest of TheNineties. Creator/ChristopherNolan restored the franchise with his consistently dark and realistic {{reboot}}, ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''.
