* BatmanArkhamAsylum features a fairly standard but well-told Batman plot, but a sudden case of MoodWhiplash and MindScrew hits whenever The Scarecrow's fear toxin causes Batman to have some rather disturbing hallucinations. For many players, these sudden horror sections were the high point of the game. The gameplay was unchanged, but the tone was completely different.
** BatmanArkhamCity followed with an entire, darkly surreal section devoted to the Mad Hatter's insane fantasies, where Batman winds up in another hallucinatory world. Also like Arkham Asylum, the gameplay was unchanged.
** Another occurs with Ra's al Ghul's section of the game, where yet another unreal battle takes place in a theme park Middle Eastern fantasy world before jumping right back into post Dark Knight grim-and-gritty Gotham

** VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight takes the cake with the ending sequences which involve [[spoiler:Batman's worst nightmare played out in his head: Joker possesses Batman - and turns the game into a third-person shooter! Then Scarecrow screws up and Joker gets his worst nightmare in FPS horror format.]]

* ''SinCity'' is mostly a crime-noir comic series set in a somewhat realistic world (for a comicbook anyway). Despite this, we've had a few departures.

* The flashbacks in ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'' episode "The last voyage of the Jimmy Carter" look more like scenes from a DarkerAndEdgier version of ''Series/SeaQuestDSV''.

* As far as the individual episode plots, ''{{Sliders}}'' is almost GenreRoulette, except that it still manages to stay sci-fi most of the time.
* The finale of ''CrossingJordan'' has all the characters stranded after a plane crashed, and try to survive in the cold long enough for rescue to find them.
* ''The Haunting Hour: The Series'':

* In the ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' episode "The Bad Neighbors", the wacky sci-fi hijinks turn into a parody of generic suburban {{sitcom}}s when Lord Hater and Emperor Awesome both end up hiding out in a cul-de-sac on Suburbicon IV and get into an EscalatingWar with each other.

* ''ComicBook/{{Rahan}}'' is set in paleolithic times; although full of ArtisticLicensePaleontology with dinosaurs showing up regularly (up to a [[SerialNumbersFiledOff serial-numbers-filed-off]] Franchise/{{Godzilla}} once), it is devoid of any obvious fantasy elements -- in fact the title hero very often debunks any claim of magic in the setting. And then, an issue feature Rahan lost in a bizarre world that he thinks at first is the afterlife, with completely fantastic monsters and inexplicable forces. [[spoiler:Turns out this is all [[MushroomSamba a dream caused by hallucinogetic mushrooms]].]]

* ''NoMoreHeroes2'' flirts with this in the fight with Matt Helms, who's basically one giant slasher villain homage, and who's backstory is one of the few times the game and its predecessor deals with supernatural elements (his stage is even reached through an Akashic Point, another one of the rare supernatural elements.)

* Halfway through ''VisualNovel/MayoiNekoOverrun'', the viewer gets an entire episode about {{mecha}} and later about a simple game that was made so [[SeriousBusiness dramatic]] it goes on par with [[Manga/{{Saki}} a certain mahjong anime]].
