** The ''Sun and Moon'' arc has noticeably become a cartoony SliceOfLife school series with crack humor (mainly from Samson Oak) reminisce of the original series, including the return of the RunningGag of James being attacked by a Pokémon (in this case, his Mareanie) out of affection. Needless to say, it is a BrokenBase with fans and is accused of trying to copy ''Anime/YokaiWatch''.

** The third season of the anime, S, has a reputation for being the [[DarkerAndEdgier dark season]]. And it is...but it's also the point where the show's slapstick silliness goes into overdrive, the monsters start becoming ludicrous, and the minions start becoming [[AffablyEvil affable]].

Added DiffLines:

* There are ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' crossover films, such as ''Tom and Jerry and The Wizard of Oz'' and ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryWillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'', which are almost shot-for-shot remakes of classic live action films with parts excluded in order to have slapstick humour added in.

* ''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.

** The original series was a pretty exciting, relatively realistic "animated reality show". The second season takes place in a movie studio and every episode is a shout out to films with much cartoonier antics. The third season has the contestants flying around the world in a jet and is a musical. The fourth season takes place in the first island, but is now a radioactive waste deposit. This is also reflected by the way contestants are kicked off the show each season. In Season 1, a boat came to take the contestants off the island. In season 2, a broken-down limousine drove the contestants off the movie set. Season 3 had the contestants sky dive out of the jumbo jet they were flying in when voted off. In season 4, a giant catapult flung them off the island. And in Season 5? [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext They're flushed down a giant toilet.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 1}}'', like others here, wasn't the most serious of games, but ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' took it UpToEleven with the wackiness factor. ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' toned down the humor with Bethesda handling it (but still had its odd moments), only for it to return in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', which even features a SillinessSwitch as one of the traits you can pick. ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'' is then a bit more serious than ''New Vegas'', but still has tons of silly moments and is generally [[LighterAndSofter Lighter and Softer]] than both ''3'' and ''New Vegas''.

** ''Advanced Generation'' was noted for this, having zanier plots in filler episodes, as well as Meowth having frequent [[ImagineSpot boss fantasies]]. With RuleOfFunny in mind, an arguable case of TropesAreNotBad.

** The ''Advanced Generation'' was notorious for this, having far zanier plots in filler episodes, as well as Meowth having frequent boss fantasies.

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' started out as a more grounded in reality World War Two-based version of [[CommandAndConquerTiberianSeries The Tiberian Series.]] Then we had ''Red Alert 2'', which introduced mind control, flying saucers, a giant brain in a tank, attack dolphins and giant squid. ''Red Alert 3'' just drops ''any'' idea of being serious and adds in a IFV that launches infantry out of a cannon, [[BearsAreBadNews Attack Bears]] also launchable from the same IFV, {{Animeland}} Japan with giant mechs, [[Film/BatmanAndRobin the Mister Freeze Corps]], magnetic satellites, S.H.R.I.N.K. beams, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]] [[Creator/GeorgeTakei Emperor Takei]]. Oh ''my''!

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' went for this after the previous DarkerAndEdgier sequels ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' and ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' ended up being {{Contested Sequel}}s. However, this made it just as divisive as those iterations.
