The difference between GenreRoulette and Genre Busting is the difference between content and premise respectively. If the premise of your story is that five hundred years in the future, a fight between two large factions occurs while there is a third faction manipulating them behind the scenes, then congratulations, you've just made a genre busting [[ScienceFiction Sci-Fi]] ConspiracyThriller War Story. Now let's say you [[CharacterFocus focus]] on three characters within that story; one character is in a forbidden relationship with someone from the other side of the war, one is growing more mature from their experience with the war, and another is investigating clues that lead back to the manipulative third faction. Now you are running a roulette between a StarCrossedLovers story, a ComingOfAge arc, and MysteryFiction.

** ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' is a philosophical and psychological comedy/drama/coming-of-age/slice of life/road movie/buddy movie/adventure/fantasy. Which elements are in play shift whether the film is focused on the human characters or the cast of emotions within their minds.



* Don't forget with a pretty awesome obscure animated film, ''WesternAnimation/RockAndRule''. It's a post apocalyptic movie at first, however it got combined by the Rock and Roll musical genre and fantasy ala sword and sorcery going on for this movie which makes it really awesome

* ''VideoGame/{{Foxhole}}'' calls itself a "persistent world warfare MMO", where everything is done by the players, where logistics, building and supplying the frontlines are part of the game as much of driving tanks and shooting. It takes the social aspects from a MMORPG, the "massive dynamic war" from VideoGame/PlanetSide, isometric top-down shooting from VideoGame/RunningWithRifles and also has the [[YouRequireMoreVespeneGas logistics and supply system]] coming from the RTS genre.

* ''Series/TwinPeaks'' debuted as a fairly mundane murder mystery, but quickly drew in elements of horror, teen angst, quirky comedy, and MagicRealism. It was unlike anything else on television... and that was before ''The Return'' came along to show how much further they could take it all. The Black Lodge, so mind-blowing in the original series, was positively mundane compared to some of the completely surreal dreamscapes of the revival. Throw in doppelgangers, time travel, and one of the most frustratingly {{Ambiguous Ending}}s ever seen in a TV show and you have something even the most devoted fans can find downright ''impossible'' to classify.

*''Anime/GakkouGurashi'' is essentially this, initially seems like an innocent schoolgirl genre in the first half however, in the second half it turns into a Zombie Apocalypse themed anime.

* ''VideoGame/Persona3'', it's an RPG Urban Fantasy about saving the world and the true self and romance and horror and psychology and resolutions and with dating sim mechanics, plus creating new Personas by mix-and-match / recipe mechanics. It became so popular that it spawned two major sequels, numerous spin-offs, and inspired other games such as Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars.
** Add in the Point-and-click / Visual Novel genres of the ''Portable'' release for the PSP, and it further complicates the list.
