** The Kaiba Corp Grand Prix filler arc, compared to the other filler arcs, and even the canon ones, which generally had little to no wackiness whatsoever. Not to mention that this was fresh off of the [[CerebusRollercoaster more serious]] DOMA filler arc. Also, how can you take a [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Forest_Wolf NON-ANTHROPOMORPHIC WOLF]] [[

* The plots of the [[VideoGame/YokaiWatch video game]] get put on the backburner in the ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' anime in exchange for SliceOfLife antics and comedic gags. The anime also contains ''a lot'' less fighting.

* In development, ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'' was originally a standard Disney musical called ''Kingdom of the Sun''. Eventually it was retooled into a goofy buddy comedy. And as seen on [[Funny/TheEmperorsNewGroove the movie's funny page]], TropesAreNotBad.



* Though not to the extent of ''Aladdin'', Disney's ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' is also a very comedic,lighthearted film compared to the other Disney Renaissance films, ''especially'' ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', which preceded it.

* Season one of ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' was mostly a slightly-odd PoliceProcedural with Batman Shout-Outs, and its villainies were limited to corporate and municipal corruption, serial killings, mafioso power-struggles and the occasional BadassNormal assassin. By season two it'd widened its scope to include multiple MadScientist-types, crazy cult conspirators, tech-enhanced supervillains and mutants, and as of season three, HatePlague terrorism and the supernatural got tossed into the mix. By the time season four aired, even over-the-top stuff like Poison Ivy's killer plants felt like Gotham City business-as-usual.

* ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' started out as a fairly edgy girls' toyline, with somewhat mature character designs and realistic high-school plots. Over time, the franchise shifted more toward its fantastical influences in design and story, and the 2016 reboot softened a lot of its remaining edge.

* Robert McCloskey's classic ''Homer Price'' stories. The early ones, most famously [[TheOneWith the one about the doughnut machine]], are gentle comic tales of small-town American life...but from there on out the stories keep getting steadily more outlandish, to the point where the final four stories (collected in a second volume, ''Centerburg Tales'') teeter on the brink of surrealism.

* The ''Literature/TalesOfTheCity'' series started off being very slice-of-life. The most outlandish things in the original book were D'orothea's efforts to [[spoiler:pose as a black woman]] and the [[spoiler:pedophilic]] private eye. The second book, in contrast, had [[spoiler:a cannibal cult]]. And then the third book had one of the main characters having a sexual encounter with a real-life closeted movie star (whose name was thus left blank) and a plot involving [[spoiler:Reverend Jim Jones]].

Added DiffLines:

* Within the ''Mario'' series, the two ''Galaxy'' games exhibit this. The first game had a more epic scope, with the climax of the game being played as frightening and tragic, and great emphasis was put on the atmosphere and mystery of space, even introducing a new character, Rosalina, who has a melancholy backstory and introduces philosophical ideas about life and rebirth. The second game is more in line with other ''Mario'' titles, with a comical hub world and ship captain, a typical ExcusePlot conflict regarding Bowser and cake, and a less dramatic climax, even ending on a comedic note.

** However, ''Galaxy'' in itself is much more poignant and serious than most other main-series Mario platformers, with mysterious atmosphere, Rosalina's tragic backstory, and the terrifying scope of Bowser's threat at the end. ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'', on the other hand, fits in more with other Mario games, with no thought-provoking story elements and more comical elements, down to the hub and BigGood leader.
