* ''Manga/SchoolLive'' seems to be a cute moe slice-of-life. Until you find out [[spoiler: that the setting is actually a zombie apocalypse.]] Again when you discover that [[spoiler: Megu-nee is actually dead and the character you know is only a figment of Yuki's imagination.]]

*It was pretty clear that Moralton in ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' was not a happy place, but the show was mainly comedy until the episode "Nature" when [[spoiler: Orel is shot by his dad]]

** [[spoiler: The fourth season proves to be a very somber affair as it follows Ruby and a few friends as they try set things straight and everyone else tries to recover from the Fall of Beacon.]]

** ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' supplies one as well, halfway through the first season. Immediately after [[spoiler: the conclusion of the Pro-Bending tournament, the soundtrack fades out as members of the audiences slowly pull masks up over their faces. Then one of them reaches into their popcorn, slowly pulls out a weapon... and [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids we see the beginning of an]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar honest-to-god terrorist attack]]]]. This set the DarkerAndEdgier tone of the show quite nicely, which culminated in [[spoiler: a completely unambiguous murder-suicide]] during the season finale.

* For the first two seasons, ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' was a lighthearted, if a bit [[ClicheStorm cliched]], love letter to {{Shonen}} {{Anime}}, until the second half of the third season throws us with:
** [[spoiler: Yang getting tricked into attacking her opponent after the match ended,]]
** [[spoiler: Pyrrha getting tricked into overusing her power on Penny, killing her and causing her {{Internal|Reveal}} RoboticReveal, which causes enough doubt, grief, and horror to stir the Grimm into attacking the city,]]
** [[spoiler: Blake getting found and threatened by her [[BastardBoyfriend Bastard Ex-Boyfriend]], and Yang [[AnArmAndALeg getting her arm chopped off]] trying to defend her,]]
** [[spoiler: Cinder succeeding in stealing the power of the Fall Maiden, killing Pyrrha and leaving Ozpin MIA,]]
** [[spoiler: And Weiss being taken back home by her (at the time implied to be) AbusiveDad.]]
** [[spoiler: The fourth season proves to be a very somber affair as it follows Ruby and a few friends as they try set things straight and everyone else tries to recover from the Fall of Beacon.]]



* ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' has Kin, who has been slowly recovering from the [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil abuse she received from Dellyn]]. And then there's Minmax, who has [[CharacterDevelopment slowly been falling for her despite her monster status]] and seems to have reached the point of "seeing" her like her people do. And then [[spoiler: an alternate-universe version of Kin deliberately [[RetGone obliterates the physical touchstone of their relationship,]] leaving them still in love, but Kin no longer understands why. When she abruptly attempts to send Minmax and Forgath on their way--probably never to see them again--Minmax panics and grabs her leash in an attempt to slow things down and talk it out. [[http://www.goblinscomic.org/10222013/ The faces]] on both of them speak volumes.]]

* A VerySpecialEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' begins like any other, with Peter and Joe going fishing and wondering where Quagmire is. When they go to his house they see Quagmire hanging from a noose and nearly dead from asphyxiation while watching clown porn. [[Recap/FamilyGuyS10E3ScreamsOFSilenceTheStoryOfBrendaQ Then his sister and her abusive boyfriend show up]], and everything goes to Hell from there.

* [[SlowPacedBeginning The first few episodes of]] ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' played out like your typical animated adult SitCom up until "The Telescope", in which Bojack tries to make amends with his former friend Herb, [[FriendOrIdolDecision who he betrayed to save his stardom 20 years ago,]] after finding out he's in the late stages of rectal cancer. on another show, this would end in a GoldenMoment and Bojack gaining Herb's {{forgiveness}}, making it quite the shock when RealityEnsues and Herb [[RejectedApology refuses Bojack's apology]] and [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech calls it out for the obviously insincere attempt to soothe Bojack's conscience that it is]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The end of "Baelor". Arya watches as her father is sentenced to death, but Yoren shields her from seeing the actual death. Ser Ilyn draws Eddard's own sword, Ice, and cuts his head off with a single blow. A flock of pigeons takes flight immediately afterwards, the sight being all Arya needs to know her father is dead.
** The end of "The Rains of Castamere" quickly gained a well-deserved reputation as one of the biggest Gut Punches ever broadcast on television. In a shocking twist, a wedding turns into a massacre. Robb stands and utters, "Mother" as ​Roose Bolton, who had fled the hall when the massacre began, seizes Robb, whispering "The Lannisters send their regards," before stabbing him in the heart. Now catatonic with grief, Catelyn stands there and accepts her fate, allowing Black Walder to slip up behind her and viciously cut her throat. She falls to the floor with a thud.
** The end of "The Mountain and the Viper". Tyrion has been accused of killing the king, and his innocence is to be decided by trial by combat. His champion, Oberyn is viciously defeated and he is sentenced to death by Tywin. Tyrion cannot even reply, shockingly staring in catatonic astonishment at Oberyn's skull-crushed corpse, as does Jaime; the only different reaction is from Cersei, who stares at Oberyn's slaughtered body, listening to Tyrion's death sentence while smirking in vindication.
** The end of "Mother's Mercy". Jon Snow is stabbed by his fellow Night's Watch members. The brothers leave Jon to die alone in the snow.
