* ''WebComic/Persona3FTW'' had a [[http://personaftw.thecomicseries.com/comics/781 comic]] where the leads lamented over having to switch to the summer uniforms, followed by Fonzie jumping the shark. [[WordOfGod JC]] confirmed that he doesn't like the summer uniforms. Still doesn't.

* In VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird (and Later VideoGame/SaintsRowIV) the series went in a 180-direction and abandoned the Gang-based serious realistic based fun bound nature of VideoGame/SaintsRow and VideoGame/SaintsRow2 for a "weak, but engagingly fun story" and explosive "in your face " quickly recurring fun. Many Fans of the original games believed the series had 'Jumped the Shark' due to either Writer's block, lack of interest or fear out of becoming repetitive. ** In VideoGame/SaintsRowIV, the final mission is called "Punch the shark"(even though no actual sharks are involved). "Jumping" it just doesn't quite cut it anymore.

* A [[CousinOliver child character]] is added to an otherwise adult cast (or worse, is put in after the kids in the cast "stop being cute.")

* The series finale of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' is literally all about this trope. Bat-Mite, tired of the show's LighterAndSofter nature, conspires to get it cancelled in the hopes that it'll be replaced by a DarkerAndEdgier Batman show. He does this by using his RealityWarper powers to inflict several classic shark jumps on the show, including giving Batman a love interest and [[CousinOliver sickeningly cute daughter]], inserting obvious toy tie-ins, changing Aquaman's voice actor (to Ted [=McGinley=], no less), giving Ace the Bat-Hound [[TheScrappy a very familiar nephew]], moving the show to Malibu, and finally making Batman use guns. ComicBook/AmbushBug (voiced by Henry Winkler himself) tries to save the day by telling Batman [[MediumAwareness that they're in a TV show]] and if they don't get back to normal fast, declining viewership will destroy their world. [[spoiler:They're too late to save the show, but at least they manage to salvage its dignity. As for Bat-Mite, not only does he not get what he wanted (the replacement is a CG-animated show about Bat'''girl'''), but Batman points out that since ''he's'' part of the show, the cancellation affects him too.]] * TeamUmizoomi has an unusual variation where a shark jumps with the Team.
