* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': The characters became wackier when the show was revived, [[TookALevelInDumbass dumber]] and rather callous. The show as a whole becomes zanier and more like ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is this in season 3 (and to a lesser extent, in season 2), despite said season having {{Wham Episode}}s that [[CerebusRollercoaster contrast well with it]]. There is the wild BizarroEpisode that is "[[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS3E35TheCountdown The Countdown]]", involving TimeTravel, reality warping, MediumAwareness (in contrast to the rest of the show), and a very strange plot that [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext makes just as much sense in context]]. "[[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS3E9TheGripes The Gripes]]" and "[[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS3E19TheProcrastinators The Procrastinators]]" are a few other strange episodes, especially when compared to the somewhat more realistic SliceOfLife episodes in season 1.

Combine Season 3 with savagely twisted Black Comedy and you more or less get Season 4.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Film/DoubleDragon'' movie is action/comedy compared to the ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'' video game which is a straight up action game.

Added DiffLines:

* A notable inversion comes in ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'', with the fantasy adventure plots of previous Sonic incarnations giving way to simple SliceOfLife affairs like Sonic firing Tails as his sidekick, and Eggman driving Sonic crazy moving in with him for a while.

* Anne Carson's ''Red Doc>'' is this compared to its predecessor, ''Literature/AutobiographyOfRed''. While ''Autobiography of Red'' is a work of subdued MagicRealism in which the most overtly weird element is the fact that the main character has wings, ''Red Doc>'' verges on BizarroFiction: it includes a character named [[Letters2Numbers 4NO]], a flying musk ox, a psychiatric clinic hidden inside a glacier, and a colony of "ice bats" the size of toasters who live in a structure called Batcatraz. Interestingly, it's also a bit darker than ''Autobiography'': amidst all the weirdness, characters have to deal with issues like [[ShellShockedVeteran PTSD]] and the death of a parent.

* While ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' had its lot of comedy (especially in the last few seasons), the [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016 2016 reboot]] ups the antics by having everyone act more excitable, [[CharacterExaggeration exaggerating characterizations]] (for example Blossom went from TheSmartGal to being a NeatFreak with SuperOCD), featuring WingdingEyes often, and frequently mentioning memes.

* Several of the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' comics from the 1950's and 60's are very bizarre and surreal, some stories involved a magical being named Batmite who's Batman's biggest fan and can alter reality, others included stories where Batman becomes a toddler and fights crime, Batman and Robin being turned into paper thin beings by a multicolored monster, Batman becoming a genie, etc.

* The first EvilDead film is a fairly straight horror movie, playing every scare and monster as a serious threat and highlighting it's cast as "normal" college age kids in over their heads. The second movie began to mix in more slapstick and cartoon-y elements, using over-the-top sets in place of actual locations and turning BruceCampbell's Ash Williams from an everyday guy into a shotgun wielding quipmaster by the end of the movie. Then, in the third film, he's fighting cartoon skeletons and an evil undead version of himself in medieval Europe through the use of ThreeStooges style slapstick and references to 50s sci-fi films.
