** It's counterpart, [[Franchise/SuperSentai]] generally always has one or two Christmas Episodes (the first airing the week before Christmas if it is a two parter). Because the season is nearing the final stretch, it's not unusual for these episodes to be a bit heavy and normally set up for the finale. To contrast, KamenRider typically is just concluding it's opening arc, so they are typically lighter, if they happen at all.

* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' has several Christmas episodes, in one of them, Santa gives them a bunch of eels. Considering what [[BodyHorror they did to him]] in an earlier episode, they kinda deserved it. Oddly, though, a couple of these 'Christmas' episodes don't even take place at Christmastime, one made special note that the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future showed up at ''February'', and the episode involving the BodyHorror they inflicted on Santa happened, and quoted from the man himself, "in the middle of fucking July!". Equally oddly, despite the episode title, the episode "Star Studded Xmas Spectacular" [[note]]A.K.A. "Star Studded Christmas Spectacular Starring Rhon Geremi", A.K.A. "Deleted Scenes"[[/note]] has nothing to do with Christmas at all, instead being a preview for TheMovie.

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' has six. The first featured Christmas related skits from past episodes while the "Half-Assed Christmas Special", "Dear Consumer" (AKA, the "Full-Assed Christmas Special"), "DP Christmas Special", "ATM Christmas Special", and the "Born Again Virgin Christmas Special" feature new ones. "The Robot Chicken Christmas Special: X-Mas United" episode was a standalone episode centered on The Nerd traveling to the North Pole out of the belief that Santa Claus was his biological father. [[spoiler: The Krampus turned out to be his father instead.]]

If a Christmas Episode is [[TwistedChristmas depressing in tone]], this is a case of SoaplandChristmas, named because of the tendency in British {{Soap Opera}}s for the Christmas Episode to be the most depressing episode of the entire year. (Which is saying something; Brit Soaps like ''Series/EastEnders'' tend to be depressing anyway.) It is not uncommon for a long running character to die in Christmas Episodes of this kind, and another occurrence is a disastrous WeddingDay where everything goes wrong and the wedding doesn't occur, or a disastrous Birth where the baby, mother or both [[DeathByChildbirth die in the process]].
