* ''Deliberately Invoked'' in [[Fanfic/HowToDrillYourWayThroughYourProblems How To Drill Your Way Through Your Problems,]] a [[Literature/{{Worm}} Worm Self-Insert]] fanfiction. The setting is that of Worm, which is a grimdark superhero story, where the "SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids" trope is one of the cornerstones of the setting... which makes it all the more jarring that Will Carran, the SI, has been given Spiral Power. From Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann. The setting that took "SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers," took it UpToEleven, and added fire and giant robots.

* ''Savage'' started off as an AlternateHistory action series, with technology slightly more advanced than the present day. Around 2009 or 2010, it shifted to full-on ScienceFiction, with teleporting tigers and the predecessors of the ''ComicBook/ABCWarriors'' appearing.

* ''JonathanHickmansAvengers'' starts out seeming like a standard superhero story, albeit one with an unusually large cosmic scale. Than as things progress and [[FromBadToWorse the Incursions and other threats get worse]], it becomes clear you're ''actually'' reading a CosmicHorrorStory that just happens to include superheroes. The [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism contrast]] between the early and later parts of the story is highlighted when Captain America gives a passionate, epic speech about how he saves worlds and will find a way to save everyone. Previous, similar speeches had been treated as rightfully awe-inspiring and hopeful. This speech? Kang bluntly tells Cap that nobody cares and that his HeroicWillpower won't stop the Incursions.

* ''Webcomic/ItHurts'' starts out as a crude high school comedy with certain hints at terrible life circumstances. Come strip 100, and [[spoiler:the apocalypse happens, sci-fi elements and deities are introduced, and it looks at the concept of obtaining happiness]].

* Fan Fiction in a meta sense is often done because a fan either wishes a series was a different genre or because they are curious to see what the story or the characters would be like in a different setting. Of course such stories can be anywhere from entertaining to terrible.

If this happens one time only in a series before reverting back to the main genre, it's an OutOfGenreExperience. If it happens before the work is released to the public, it's a case of MidDevelopmentGenreShift. If an EldritchAbomination suddenly appear without much foreshadowing, its CosmicHorrorReveal.

* ''Fanfic/SonicXDarkChaos'' starts out as a generic (if more violent) SpaceOpera like the original third season of ''Sonic X''. Then it turns into a CosmicHorrorStory.

* As noted in many retrospectives, ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' is less one show than it is two and a half shows. The first two seasons are a high-octane action show with (mostly) simplistic plots that drops most of the traditional Bat cast and goes out of its way to show those that it kept in a very different light than fans were used to. Seasons 3 and 4 [[PutOnABus drop all of the new characters]] in favor of more standard ones, and replaces the action scenes with more dramatic storylines reminiscent of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. Season 5 is more or less a Justice League show that occasionally features Batman characters.
