* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' has [[LongRunners been around for a while]], and it goes through quite a few arcs that shake up the usual screwball RomanticComedy for more serious fare. The classic OutOfGenre experience was the Lord of Terror arc, where Urd shifted from [[PrettyFreeloaders Pretty Freeloader]] to world-threatening menace, and several later arcs were also more fantasy adventure or romantic ''drama'', to say nothing of several arcs focused around [[AuthorAppeal motorcycle racing]]. These gradually became more common, until by the Niflheim arc, it was a full-fledged fantasy adventure series with a romance-focused premise, largely because Keiichi and Belldandy's relationship had been frozen at a middle-school level for so long that there was really nothing more that the author could do with it.

* 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 ("Beat it", "Dirty Diana", "Give in to me") as well as gospel-flavored songs ("Man in the mirror", "Will you be there?", "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).

* Music/DavidBowie practically built his entire career on this trope. While commonly classified as a rock singer, Bowie's dabbled in a surprisingly wide variety of genres over the years, with at least two [[NewSoundAlbum new sound albums]] per decade. Among other things, the man's discography has explored novelty rock, psychadelic folk rock, '''very''' early heavy metal, glam rock, proto-punk, blue-eyed soul, electronic proto-post punk krautrock, post punk with Gothic new wave flare, dance rock, synthpop, hard rock, acid jazz, industrial electronica, art rock, alt-rock, and jazz fusion. A GreatestHitsAlbum alone can make listeners question whether all of these songs are by the same guy.

* ''{{Film/Troll}}'' can't decide whether it wants to be a horror film or a fantasy adventure. ''{{Film/Troll 2}}'' can't decide whether it wants to be a horror comedy or straight up horror.
* Legendary director RobertZemeckis has touched almost every genre. From directing comedies from his early career ( IWannaHoldYourHand and ''Used Cars'') to fun action adventures (RomancingTheStone) to Science-Fiction (BackToTheFuture) to mystery noir mixing live-action and animation (WhoFramedRogerRabbit) to westerns (BackToTheFuturePartIII) to black comedy (DeathBecomesHer) to romantic comedy-dramas (ForrestGump) to straight up dramas (CastAway and [=Flight=]) to Hitchcock horror suspense (WhatLiesBeneath) to christmas movies (ThePolarExpress and [=Disney/AChristmasCarol=] to folklore [=Beowulf=] to biographical films TheWalk to war romance thrillers [=Allied=]. Even his upcoming film ''The Women Of Marwen'' is a fantasy psychological drama. Is there a genre this man hasn't touched? All thats missing is a monster movie and a erotic porno.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': Its default genre is a kids'-in-school/family animated sitcom (''a la'' seasons one and two of ''TheSimpsons'' or ''DiaryOfAWimpyKid''), but there have been times where it's slipped into other genres, such as post-apocalyptic adventure ("The Pizza"), horror ("The Mirror," "The Joy," and "Halloween"), sketch comedy ("The Tape"), coming of age ("The Kids" and "The Shell"), and prison drama ("The Lesson"), among others.
