* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' is very different from the other ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series, due to being the only one set on a station instead of a starship ("Fort Apache In Space" as opposed to "Wagon Train to the Stars"), and relying heavily on the use of the StoryArc. Instead of a weekly PlanetOfHats, most of the focus is on the Federation's interaction with one planet, Bajor, and said planet's internal politics. It also acts as a {{deconstruction}} of the utopian Federation Gene Roddenberry envisioned. As such, it's pretty LoveItOrHateIt among ''Trek'' fans, but also has a following among people who don't necessarily like the other series.

* ''Literature/TheBible'': ''The Song of Songs" is much different from the other books of The Bible. It is a highly sexual love poem, which has no mention of God.

* Of Ludwig Bemelmans' original six ''Literature/{{Madeline}}'' books, ''Madeline's Christmas'', is the only one that features magic and fantasy. Subsequent books by his grandson John Bemelmans Marciano have also included fantasy elements, but of the original six, especially compared to the {{Slice of Life}} tone of the first book, the Christmas story is a definite oddball. Unsurprisingly, the AnimatedAdaptation gives it an extensive rewrite, replacing the magic with a MaybeMagicMaybeMundane scenario more tonally in-line with the rest of the series.

** ''Series/UltramanCosmos'' in 2001 has the BadassPacificst hero put more emphasis on saving the monsters rather than destroying them directly like others, and fights very defensively. It's regarded as one of the lightest shows in the series aside some spin-offs.

** ''Anime/GundamBuildFighters'' takes place TwentyMinutesInTheFuture where Gundam is a fictional series, having technology to allow Gunpla figures to move and be controlled. It's by the the most LighterAndSofter series without the series' usual themes of WarIsHell.

* ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' has ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreetPart2FreddysRevenge'', where Freddy is not quite the horrific figure of [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984 the original]], nor the quipster he would become in ''[[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors 3]]'', and instead attacks people in reality, rather than in dreams, and manipulates the protagonist to do his bidding.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':
** ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' is the oddball for the ''Star Trek'' movie series. Whereas every other movie is set in the 23rd century and features Captain Kirk & company flying around the galaxy on the Starship ''Enterprise'', this movie takes place almost entirely in the mid 1980's, on Earth, with the crew being FishOutOfWater, trying to literally "Save The Whales" (and hence becoming the TropeNamer for SpaceWhaleAesop).

* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' is the only installment in the Literature/HarryPotter franchise where the climax does not take place at Hogwarts. Instead, the Power Trio and their friends make a mad dash to the Ministry of Magic to fight the bad guys.
