* ''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.

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]].

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', for the vast majority of the Golden Age arc, becomes a grim and gritty medieval story devoid of any demons, aside from the Zodd fight. After the Griffith rescue arc, shit starts hitting the fan and we return to the CrapsackWorld that is the world of Berserk.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'':
** Chapter 12 puts the SliceOfLife comedy on hold to introduce MON dealing with a terrorist hostage crisis.
** Chapter 38 puts the {{Fanservice}} on the back burner [[note]]It's one of the only chapters in the entire manga that doesn't include any nudity.[[/note]] and focuses mainly on Lala's relationship with a terminally ill child at the hospital.
** Chapter 40 is more of an action comedy than SliceOfLife.
