* The Mending in [[Franchise/MagicTheGathering]] radically altered the story from that of century-long interplanar plots by godlike beings that primarily took place on the plane of Dominaria to more insular, episodic plots centered around each new plane visited. The in-story change was the fabric of reality altered changing Planeswalkers (the aforementioned godlike beings) to mortal spellcasters who happen to have the ability to travel between planes.

As there isn't an [[ResetButton easy out]] if it all goes wrong, the writers tend to have to resort to desperate measures like AllJustADream to attempt to undo the damage should things go pear-shaped and are rejected by audiences. This rarely goes well, and can even result in a FranchiseKiller. Pretty much the only hope is a well-executed ContinuityliveReboot.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' kept altering its status quo in season 2, but many of these things were cosmetic changes. However, for the SeasonFinale, everything changed with [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S2E25TheInvasionPart1 The]] [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S2E26TheInvasionPart2 Invasion]]. After Shredder decides to do a VillainTeamUp with the Kraang again, they make their move, beginning the Kraang's second invasion of New York, only this time, more effectively. [[spoiler: April's other friend Irma turned out to be a Kraang spy, and with his help, the Kraang trash the lair and destroy the shellraiser.]] Scattering and disorganized, the turtles and their allies try to fight the invasion as best they can, but disaster slowly creeps in on them. Leonardo fights the entire foot clan on his own, but is critically injured by Shredder. In turn, Kraang Prime turns Mr. O'Neil into an even more hideous Kraang mutant, and the turtles are forced to abandon April's apartment. Then in combat, Shredder manages to disable both Splinter and Leatherhead, with the turtles horrifyingly watching the latter get thrown deeper into the sewers. The turtles try a heroic LastStand against Kraang Prime, but [[spoiler: even with their new HumongousMecha, they're no match, and are forced to flee New York]] after easily their worst defeat to date this incarnation. The status quo in season 3 lasts a while [[spoiler: at April's farm]], however, after the turtles go off on a spirit quest, they all find the internal strength to [[spoiler: return to New York]] to defeat Shredder and Kraang once again. Though significantly, they're forced to move into an abandoned pizza shop as a new home base since the lair is still occupied by the Kraang.

* 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.)

* ''TheLastHalloween'' takes place during an [[ApocalypseHow Apocalypse]] event. Monsters invade the human world, likely killing '''billions''' in a single night. The apocalypse class could end up as low as 1 or as high as 3b, depending on the actions of a ten year old girl, but the story makes it clear that the world can never go back to the way it was before.

* 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 so disruptive and revolutionary. Writers throughout the 19th century [[GenreSavvy have noted this]], and [[NewMediaAreEvil bemoaned the lack of culture]] the new mode of travel would bring. 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.
