** The comic was always set [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture twenty minutes into the future]], with sentient robots like Pintsize and Winslow running around, but recently the comic has shifted heavily towards storylines involving robots and AI. It may have started with Marten, Marigold, and Hannelore visiting her dad in deep space and coming into contact with Station, but since Faye got hired at the local bot-fighting ring the comic has almost become all robots, all the time.

* With the introduction of more mystical elements to Westeros, the ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' fic ''Fanfic/RobbReturns'' changes Ice and Fire's DarkFantasy into a more traditional HighFantasy.

** The first three films are set in a mostly realistic setting, with no magical elements except for talking animals and [[spoiler: Mufuasa]] appearing as a ghost. ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' seems to be changing the genre to fantasy. Simba's son has some kind of magic superpower known as the "Roar of the Elders.' He roars like a adult lion despite being a cub, while the ghosts of the kings of the past roar with him in the sky, causing wind so strong it can blow the target away. Rafiki is also shown magically cleaning up a cave and making a pool of water appear in it out of nowhere with his staff.

* This trope was probably the single biggest problem with ''Comicbook/NovasAventurasDeMegaMan'', an infamous Brazilian comic that [[ExecutiveMeddling Capcom actually authorized]] because TheyJustDidntCare, and that's saying quite a lot. The writers have actually ''admitted'' to changing the genre nearly every issue, because they wanted to see which sort of storylines the readers liked best. As such, one comic could be a flashback to a horrifying backstory about Roll's mind being taken from a young girl whom an evil scientist murdered for his mad robotics experiment, while another could be an anything goes, LargeHam comedy with NoFourthWall. By the time it settled into the action-adventure style of plot, most readers had probably dropped it in frustration.
