** ''Series/iZombie'' starts with trying to hide the fact that she has become a zombie and using her new powers to help solve murders. At the same time, the CorruptCorporateExecutive who is indirectly responsible for the zombie virus tries to capture zombies so he can experiment on them. In the season finale, the executive is dead and his corporation has been bought out by a PrivateMilitaryContractor company that seems to be entirely composed of zombies. All of Liv's friends know she is a zombie and are trying to deal with. Season two deals with the general public slowly finding out about zombies and a anti-zombie vigilante group starts killing zombies. The season ends with the entire world finding out about zombies after thousands of people are deliberately infected by the virus.

** In "The End of Time", the Tenth Doctor says goodbye to '''all''' of his former companions (yes, [[ContinuityCavalcade all of them]]), regenerates alone, and effectively destroys the TARDIS control room in doing so. By the end of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E1TheEleventhHour "The Eleventh Hour"]], the newly minted Eleventh Doctor has a regenerated TARDIS, a new sonic screwdriver, a new companion, and [[BowtiesAreCool a bowtie]]. And all of this occurs after the revelation that the Time Lords committed atrocities almost as bad as those of the Daleks in their final days, and that the Doctor actually ended the Time War to stop his own people from destroying the universe.

* The premise of the sitcom ''BosomBuddies'' had Kip and Henry, two struggling NYC ad men, moving into the Susan B. Anthony Hotel due to its dirt-cheap rent. But since it's a women-only hotel, they [[DiguisedInDrag disguise themselves]] as "Buffy and Hildegarde," supposedly Kip and Henry's sisters. By the second season, the storylines focus on their ad business, and the entire recurring cast knows Kip and Henry's secret (though the two continue to live in the hotel and pose as women for the other residents.)

* ''Anime/Acca13TerritoryInspectionDept'' is about employees of a government agency investigating a possible planned coup d'etat, plus some ordinary slice-of-life style subplots with them and their friends and family. Then we find out that [[spoiler: the deputy chief of the Inspection Department is actually ''heir to the throne'']].

* While technological innovations that are not (primarily) about war tend to make their impact seen over a period of time instead of instantly, few innovations have been as disruptive and revolutionary as the railway. Writers throughout the 19th century [[GenreSavvy have noted this]], and [[NewMediaAreEvil bemoaned the lack of culture]] the new mode of travel would bring, while others tended to focus on the positive aspects. With the arrival of the railroad to a town, what had once been an arduous (and dangerous) trip by stagecoach that took days became a short ride with a comfy train. Railroads ''invented'' the very concept of "commuting" and to this day inner ring suburbs in the US are known as "streetcar suburbs", because the expansion of streetcars made their existence possible. UsefulNotes/UlyssesSGrant writes in his autobiography how he had to make an arduous overland trip through what is now Panama when he was [[ReassignedToAntarctica posted in California]] and several of his comrades fell sick and died, because the overland trip to the other coast would have been even worse. Grant would oversee the inauguration of a transcontinental railroad during his own term in the White House that made a monthlong matter of life and death into a matter of buying a ticket and spending a few days on a train. Since the introduction of rail travel, ordinary people went from never leaving home for matters other than war and pilgrimage to people who travel hundreds of miles for a weekend for fun. And while they will not necessarily take the train to do so anymore, this development started without a doubt with the railroad.

* Proving that barriers were meant to be broken, ''{{Franchise/Transformers}}: WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' did this on Saturday morning while advertising toys. At the start of each season, natch. Season two shook things up a little by introducing the Transmetals, altering the planet, etc.; season three shook things up a ''lot'' by destroying the ''Axalon'' and forcing the Maximals to move into the Ark, putting them on the defensive until the series finale.
** The third series of ''TransformersAnimated'' is also seen as being very different than its predecessors, starting with [[spoiler:Sari being revealed to be a robot]] and going from there. Its tone is also ''much'' darker than the earlier seasons- onscreen death starts up, for example.

** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' goes for broke in the second season finale in ways that haven't been done since the movie. [[spoiler:Megatron has declared war not only on the Autobots but also Earth, parking a giant fortress on the ground, the team has been scattered and shot down and the base has been destroyed with Optimus inside.]]
** [[spoiler:The third season continues to ramp this up. First, Bumblebee gets a new paint job, Ultra Magnus joins Team Prime, Shockwave returns and brings with him the wrath of the Predacons, and oh yeah, Optimus gets revived into a new body with a frickin jet pack! The only thing that returns to status quo is that the Decepticons' new base is destroyed.]]

** The sequel (which takes place three years later) showcases the consequences, including but not limited to humans developing magic powers, humans becoming divided over whether to abandon Cocoon or not, and time itself becoming twisted and riddled with paradoxes.

* ''TheNeverhood'''s Battle of Robot Bil completely changes the tone of the remainder of the game. For a WidgetSeries-type story with bizarre settings and lots of bizarre humor, you would hardly expect [[spoiler:your only allies abruptly getting killed off, leaving you all alone inside the creepy BigBad's place where no bizarre humour can even exist, with hint messages from Willie discontinued for obvious reasons]].
* ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' has the Metroids being extinct. Unfortunately, every other ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' game that came out after this (back in 2002) has been set before Fusion! Metroids keep being bred, and killed off in the last 2 games before this (storyline-wise, those being ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' and ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM''. If there is a game set after Fusion, it will either seriously shake up the plot, or somehow Metroids will exist again, [[StatusQuoIsGod keeping the former Status Quo]]. [[spoiler:Of course, Metroids being cloned is part of the plot.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' does this in a meta way if you decide to go through with a full No Mercy route. [[spoiler:Upon killing everyone and everything there is to kill in the Underground, Chara/the Fallen Child, with or without your consent, goes on to kill everything ''outside'' of the Underground as well, and upon restarting the game, you are left with nothing except a black screen and howling wind. Eventually, Chara will return and strike a deal: they will restore the game world if you give them your SOUL.]] This seems to be upheld at first--the game intro starts to play again and everything works as it should--but [[spoiler:if you shoot for a True Pacifist ending after doing this, things take a morbid turn as it is revealed that the Fallen Child still has your SOUL, is now fully in control of it, and is implicitly about to murder all of your friends.]] Once this is done, no amount of resetting or even True Resetting can undo it.
