* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinotrux}}'' our dinosaur/construction vehicle hybrid characters work together to build things with a distinct StonePunk aesthetic. This all changes when they worth together to stop a volcano. Realizing access to a lava pool means they can melt down scrap metal and forge it into new parts, they quickly expand the reach of what they can do, with their first major metal forge build achieving ''flight''.

* ''Series/RobotWars'': In early seasons, roboteers were firm believers in ArmorIsUseless, and so preferred much lighter plastic armour for their robots. And then along came [[{{Badass}} Hypnodisc]], which ''[[CurbStompBattle utterly destroyed]]'' Robogeddon in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w04BgclPmY8 brutal and humiliating match]]. Roboteers went nuts and began piling heavy protection onto their robots from then on.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': The Tau were just another species scheduled for extermination by the ever-expanding Imperium, when a Warp storm cut them off from outside influence (that and the Imperium had other things to worry about). The Tau developped into a planetwide race with distinct cultures, at peace once the Ethereals arrived to spread their Greater Good philosophy, but no way to get anywhere in the galaxy. Then they found a crashed starship and managed to reverse-engineer it, and now the Tau have FTL that ''doesn't'' involve going through the Warp (at the cost of being much, ''much'' slower that the other options).

** The first real game changer is at the very start of the series. The Walls have protected humanity for a century. And then a Titan comes along that's easily three times larger than anything up to that point and ''kicks a hole'' in one of them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/PlayingWithLegos'', Taylor finally completes a T1 Engineer in part 76, which goes on to obsolete everything she's done up to that point. What follows afterwards quickly pushes her from playing at street level with the riffraff to becoming the planetary-level superpower a ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander'' faction is supposed to be. Also applies in the meta sense as this also made the fic the first ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander[=/=]Literature/{{Worm}}'' crossover where Taylor actually operates at strategic level.

* In ''Fanfic/{{Intercom}}'', the first game changer is when the intercom is broken, beginning the fic by establishing the new dynamic between Riley and her emotions.
** Second was when Riley touches [[spoiler: the emotion console]], creating [[spoiler: white memories, and a white CORE memory]], which would become an essential part of the fic afterwards.
** Third was when the emotions told Riley the truth about what REALLY was going on in her mind during the movie. While Riley decides not to hate or banish them for this, it does create a change in their relation to each other, and marks the beginning of Riley [[spoiler: going behind their backs for 2 secret plans]]

** A meta one in ''{{VideoGame/Halo 2}}''. The game opens with Master Chief's bold defense of Earth. But the Covenant carrier flees and the second half of the game turns into a political plot playing as [[VillainProtagonist the Arbiter]]. That said, the game also has a straight example regarding the entire original trilogy: The commencement of the Covenant civil war gives humanity its first real hope of actually winning its own war against the Covenant.

* In ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', the war on the ring progresses in a military fashion, with humans beating back [[ScaryDogmaticAliens the Covenant]]. Then the ring turns out to have been carrying an EldritchAbomination, which is set free and proceeds to start infecting anyone it encounters. A later game changer is when the ring turns out to be a super weapon, which [[GoMadFromTheIsolation its insane curator]] is trying to fire [[WellIntentionedExtremist to contain the infection]].
