Adding a new entry, and fixing a folder.
* ''Fanfic/{{The Racket-Rotter Chronicles}}'' seems to change genre with every new Arc; It starts off as a SliceOfLife Romance with comedic overtones (Arc 1), then becomes more of a dramedy (Arc 2), then turns into {{Gorn}}/Horror (Arc 3), and is now currently a sort of horror/friendship hybrid (Arc 4).

* ''Marathon'' and its sequels are as much a novella as they are shooters and much of the player's time is spent reading in-game.

->"''This is the thing about the historical adventures... they're not even a dead end of ''Series/DoctorWho'' so much as a different show that inadvertently got made under the name of ''Doctor Who''. So that watching them, the major work becomes trying to explain how the heck this story fits in between [[PeopleInRubberSuits giant ants]] and [[MonsterOfTheWeek whatever comes next week]].''"

* Music/MichaelJackson is mostly known as a pop singer, but he liked to make songs from several different genres for every album. So he could make rock songs like "Beat it", "Dirty Diana", "Give in to me", "D.S." as well as gospel-flavored songs like "Man in the mirror", "Will you be there?" and "Keep the faith".

And he also did experiments like "Liberian Girl" (wich is done in a very "tropical" style) and "Money" (where he does his own rapping).

The Turtles
to:
* Music/TheTurtles' 1968 album ''The Turtles Present: The Battle of the Bands'' is a one-album example of this trope. In here, the Turtles pretend to be 11 separate competing bands, and cover as many genres as possible, including surf rock ("Surfer Dan"), sunshine pop (Top 10 hit "Elenor"), and even faux-Hawaiian novelty with suggestive lyrics. ("I'm Chief Kamanawanalea" - try saying that slowly!)

fixed an edit of mine, added two more
* Nobody quite knows what to call Music/BoardsOfCanada genre-wise. Each album contains some consistency; their evolving discography can be referred to as ambient/ambient techno, "IDM", downtempo and yet the labels will be simultaneously close and miles away in terms of describing their sound. The closest anyone has come to naming their genre is probably "Boards of Canada".

* Music/NineInchNails' discography began with a synthpop-kinda-EBM-kinda-Gary Numan style new wave meets Depeche Mode meets Al Jourgensen on diazepam, and then the Ministry/Skinny Puppy led to Broken which....industrial ro...meta...no, rock/metal...Downward Sp...yeah, alt/industrial rock. [[MoodWhiplash The Fragile]]..........alt...ambient...I mean ~DARK~ ambient, which Still would......well, broadly the band is...broadly...post-industrial? Goddamn, just go listen to it.

* ChristianRock performer Carman did this constantly during his career. Pop, rock, rap, something vaguely like folk, adult contemporary, a pastiche of '50s rock and roll, and his famous rhyming sermons put to music. He often recorded with guest performers, and even then he might defy the genre they are typically known for; for example, "Our Turn Now" features then-metal band {{Petra}} but is the kind of rap-rock that DCTalk would eventually be known for.

* ''VideoGame/Undertale'' starts out looking like a kid friendly game where you try to get "friendliness" pellets, but moves within five seconds to a dark, definitely not kid-friendly bullet hell. Then, it's tone shifts from standard, light-hearted puzzle game, to quirky RPG parody, straight to tear jerking deconstruction of said RPG. And that's all in the first Area!
