At its most extreme it can [[CharacterDerailment turn]] a previously vibrant cast into {{Flat Character}}s and remove a lot of the show's appeal or even cause fans to abandon the work entirely. If it shoehorns [[BlackAndWhiteMorality Black and White morality]] into the work and makes everyone clear {{hero}}es and {{villain}}s, then expect people to complain about the loss of subtlety in the setting, or feel like the writers are [[ViewersAreMorons talking down to them]].

The light twin of DarkerAndEdgier, when something is {{Tone Shift}}ed to be more kid friendly and frothy than the original source. This can either happen to a show over time, or it can be the result of deliberate {{ExecutiveMeddling}}. It could be a deliberate throwback to a pre-{{Cerebus Syndrome}} incarnation. Thus, a Lighter And Softer reboot may often follow an incarnation which made a point of being Darker and Edgier. Finally, if an adult or more serious TV show or movie has a spin-off aimed at children, this can be the result. Just like its brother extreme, Lighter and Softer can leave just as [[TastesLikeDiabetes bad of a taste]] in longtime fan's mouths as Darker and Edgier if handled poorly.
