* The Series 2 finale of ''Series/{{Skins}}'' both averts this and plays it straight. On the one hand, [[spoiler: one character died, two others left for America and the rest of the group parted ways]]. On the other hand, an entirely new cast was introduced for Series 3, thus restoring the ''status quo'' of a teenage school drama.

Added DiffLines:


* ''Manga/FairyTail'' originally started out as a lighthearted shounen heavy on the comedy with some minor drama. But from the Tower of Heaven arc onwards, things start to get a whole lot more serious. Including but not limited to Erza's dark backstory, character deaths, and Natsu actually losing fights! The drama then tends to overshadow the comedy for the most part from then on. And it only gets darker from there.

* TSEliot's 1927 poem "The Journey of the Magi" is a reminiscence, many years after the fact, of one of the three magi ("wise men") who travelled westward across Asia in search of the Christ Child at the first Christmas. After finding and visiting the baby Jesus, he returns home to find that his former pagan beliefs no longer satisfy him, and that he suddenly feels spiritually unfulfilled. He never grasped the significance of what he saw, and [[DespairEventHorizon has become so depressed that "I should be glad of another death."]]

* ComicBook/TheNewUniverse comic ''Justice'' did an impressive one of these about halfway through its run. [[spoiler: In Issue 15 (cleverly titled Everything You Know Is Wrong) the readers - and the main character - find out that he isn't an interdimensional holy warrior but in fact a DEA agent who had an entire false life mentally implanted into him by a drug lord. He then becomes a borderline psychotic loner, who still can suffer flashbacks to his fake life if drugged up enough]].

** Goku becoming a Super Saiyan in his fight against Frieza. A transformation of this level had never been seen before or even Shōnen at the time.

** The series started out as mostly light-hearted, wacky adventures that Goku and his friends gotten into. Sure they were some threats but you knew they'd come out on top eventually. But it changes at the end of the 22nd Martial Arts Tournament and beginning of King Piccolo Saga with Krillin being killed by one of Piccolo's henchmen. Things took a darker turn from then on with much more at stake and this would continue on into ''Z''.

* Season three of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', starting when the heroes start chasing down Cobra. Apart from the bad guys, even the regular students are shown to be rather jerkassy, and not just in their elitism. And ''Yubel.'' The show is ''far'' darker from then on until essentially the end.

** The start of ''Z'' starts with Goku visiting his friends after five years. In that afternoon, we learned Goku has a son and he's an alien from a warrior race. In the same saga we learned Piccolo is also an alien and that there is another set of Dragon Balls in the universe.
** Goku becoming a Super Saiyan in his fight against Frieza. A transformation of this level had never been seen in the show or even Shōnen at the time.
** The seven year timeskip between the end of the Cell Games and the start of the Majin Buu Saga. Gohan is now a teen, there is now a second son of Goku, and Krillin is married with a child and has hair.

* ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' (Post-''Goddesses Arc'') qualifies as this. To articulate, [[spoiler:Hell's terrorists tried to overtake Earth. Six of the girls in the story not only remember their time with Keima but now know of each other and the Goddesses they host. Chihiro, though not remembering her conquest, knows of the truth about the girls after having her heart broken by Keima in order to protect her. And lastly, Keima cries alone as he apologies to Chihiro for leading her on and then breaking her heart so fiercely.]] As the ''Heart of Jupiter'' Arc takes center stage, the plot thickens a lot more, [[spoiler:and people actually start dying.]]
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' does this often as the series goes on, especially in the latter half as the series becomes darker: [[spoiler:Shinji's friend Toji is maimed after being trapped in an Angel-possessed Eva (or killed, in the manga); Asuka suffers from MindRape and loses her ability to pilot an Eva, becoming depressed to the point of catatonia; Rei is killed, and seemingly revived, only to be revealed to be a clone (with the remaining clones being destroyed shortly after their reveal); and most of Tokyo-3 gets destroyed, causing almost everyone Shinji ever cared for to leave...]]

** There's one near the end of the first season that synchronized with the events of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' with [[spoiler:the reveal that HYDRA has been hidden within S.H.I.E.L.D. since its inception, and that the Clairvoyant was actually a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who used his security clearance to stay ahead of the Team]]. By the end of the season, [[spoiler: Coulson has become director of S.H.I.E.L.D., which at the moment consists of himself, the five agents under his command, and the agent in charge of their one and only base of operations]]. It's a pretty jarring change from the massive GovernmentAgencyOfFiction we were introduced to when the MarvelCinematicUniverse was first formed.
