* After 14 seasons of busting Myths and getting a series finale, The Science Channel suddenly announces that it is rebooting the ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' franchise, with the next season being swapped to ''Reality TV''. Yeah, fans are screaming TheyChangedItNowItSucks on the Mythbusters Facebook page already.

* ''DanVs'', a show focused on wacky revenge schemes has "The Dentist" where Dan and Chris fight a dentist supervillain.
** Later we get Wild West Town, where the genre jump shouldn't be even remotely difficult to guess.

** The Yellow Bastard was operated on by genetic scientists and even [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment voodoo witchdoctors]] who turned him into what could be mistaken for a yellow ''Franchise/StarTrek'' alien.

* ''Literature/MobyDick'' includes chapters devoted to explaining various aspects of whaling life, as well as a cetology (study of whales) lesson that could fit into a biology textbook or encyclopedia. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment There's also a chapter about chowder.]]

This trope is often paired with MoodWhiplash. Episodes that have these experiences usually get a BizarroEpisode reputation.[[note]]Compare the question above to the "Very Important Corollary" on that page.[[/note]] For a permanent genre change, see GenreShift; when the plot starts out as something unrelated leading up to the switch it's a HalfwayPlotSwitch; and when a work has a chronic case of this trope it's a GenreRoulette. When a non-romance story goes out of focus (either temporarily or permanently) due to a RomanceArc, that's a RomanticPlotTumor. See CourtroomEpisode, NoirEpisode, SuperheroEpisode, and the rest of the {{Episodes}} page for common subtropes. For the same principle applied to video game genres, see UnexpectedGameplayChange.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E26TwilightsKingdomPart2 "Twilight's Kingdom Part 2"]], the fight between Twilight and Tirek looks like something out of a {{Shonen}} anime. This is especially noticeable with the climax of the episode, which is more in line with previous finales.

Writing drama is hard. Sticking to a popular formula is easy. That's why sometimes you can create a ''temporary'' GenreShift in a series to fill up time in your story. For example, many television shows are general drama, but...with a character who is a doctor. You [[PlotTailoredToTheParty know that soon enough]], there's going to be a [[ADayInTheLimelight central episode for that character]], complete with a [[MedicalDrama medical plot]].
