Added DiffLines:

* The Literature/NeroWolfe novels and stories are usually murder-mysteries. One exception to this is ''The Black Mountain'', which revolves around Wolfe's best friend and daughter being murdered by Soviet agents and forcing Wolfe to travel to his native Montenegro to locate the killer. While it still hinges on a murder, the novel is more of an adventure story with elements of a Cold War spy thriller.

* ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'' is usually a light-hearted SliceOfLife comedy, but the "Icy Nights" episodes are an action-packed {{homage}} to the [[FilmNoir neo-noir]] genre.

* While all the ''Film/ResidentEvil'' films were arguably a GenreRoulette, the third one was entirely different from the other three. It was less a zombie movie and more a DesertPunk film with zombies occasionally appearing.

* Most of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is a supernatural-themed show, but any episodes with [[TimeTravel Blendin Blandin]] are much straighter sci-fi.

* ''VideoGame/WanganMidnightMaximumTune'' soundtracks are known for being trace or at least having electronic music elements. But then there's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_NAANoEOfA "The Race Is On"]] from ''Maximum Tune 5DX'', which is entirely a ''rock'' song.

** VideoGame/MassEffect3 has The Citadel DLC, which is an intentional send-up of the series with numerous homages to other video games, movies, and books, a lot of snide commentary about the game and the multiplayer community, some good-natured shots at both the fans and the game, and a lot of series in-jokes. It completely clashes with the sharp {{Reconstruction}} of SpaceOpera which makes up the rest of the series.

** "The Saddle Row Review". With this episode, the show dips its hoof into {{Mockumentary}}-style comedy, with the diner interviews taking the place of talking head confessionals. To further drive the point home, the working title of this episode was [[Series/ParksAndRecreation "Saddle Row & Rec".]]

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' episode "Sentinel" marked a brief foray into SpaceOpera, when Goliath and Angela go to Easter Island and run into an alien warrior who mistakenly believes that the Gargoyles are aliens as well. Though we don't see its direct consequences, the episode makes it clear that Earth is an outpost in a massive intergalactic war.
** WordOfGod says that the aliens that the sentinel was guarding against actually ''would'' have invaded Earth two centuries after the events of the show, with the descendants of the main characters (and the members of the cast still alive at that point) forming a resistance against them. Honestly, the show was already such a FantasyKitchenSink that aliens weren't much of a stretch...but since the proposed spin-off about the alien invasion was never actually made, "Sentinel" still sticks out like a sore thumb.
