* ''Manga/VinlandSaga'' starts off has a very dark and depressing tale of an innocent kid turned killing machine, with a brutality that almost gives ''Berserk'' a run for its money. The second arc, after the ProlongedPrologue, while still not exactly light, has a noticeably more peaceful atmosphere. The third arc has a lot more humor and even an IneffectualSympatheticVillain with Sigurd. It all follows the CharacterDevelopment of the main character Thorfinn, who gadually gives up on violence (or at least tries to) and finds a reason to live that doesn't involve murdering people.

* ComicBook/UltimateMarvel was an imprint that took a serious, dark, more grounded and down-to-earth approach to the Marvel mythos. ComicBook/TheUltimates (the local version of ComicBook/TheAvengers) fought against Hulk during a destructive rampage very similar to the 9/11, and then against an alien invasion of the Chitauri, aliens that used to work with the nazis. Peter Parker died fighting against the Green Goblin, and Miles Morales became the new Spider-Man. Reed Richards, who started as a hero with the Fantastic Four, becomes a villain who would establish his technocratic society by any means necessary, including the destruction of Berlin, the genocide of all the Asgardians, and the infinity gaunlets. Galactus comes from the prime reality, and almost destroyed the whole planet. But the imprint started to decrease in sales after almost a decade, and was closed during the Secret Wars crossover, were Dr. Doom saved the multiverse from destruction and remade in his image. In Ultimate FF #5, one of the last issues of the Ultimate Marvel before the closure, all the serious tone is thrown to the window, and we have a visit of Miles Morhames, the Ultimate Spider-Ham (an antropomorphic pig with Morales' Spider suit), who comes from an alternate universe "similar" to the ultimate one. The thing is ''so'' bizarre, that it goes beyond description. Let's hear Morhames own description of his home reality
-->'''Miles Morhames:''' From what we learned, your world and ours are the same. Mostly. We were invaded by the Chiuauatari, and defended by the Ultipets. Our Peter Porker died heroically, just as yours. Mooster Fantastic, Hulk-Bunny, Quacksilver, and your, Dr. Storm as Kangaroo the Conqueror tried to take over the world. And then him. Galactypus. He's the begining of the end. He's why I'm here. (talking to Sue Storm) I've seen what will happen a thousand times. Your relationship with Ben Grizzly will end, painfully, and then you will fall in love with him: Duck-tor Doom. As the rifts got worse, Doom hatched a plan, something that would remake the universe using his feeble powers. It was supposed to kill billions, but save millions. I thought Simian Storm just couldn't live with that. But love for Doom blinded her, and our universe paid the price

* ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational'' started off as more of an action-comedy hybrid, which still had plenty of fight scenes and drama to balance the humor. However, as time went on, the writing became more and more focused on the jokes and the heroes themselves began acting ''very'' [[{{Flanderization}} out of character]] [[RuleOfFunny for the sake of comedy]]. To put in into perspective, the cover of the first issue has the phrase "A Return to Greatness!" emblazoned on it, while by the end of Giffen and Dematteis' run, the League is considered a massive, ineffectual joke by everyone in-story. Even ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} of all people refuses to join the Justice League on the grounds that they're all a bunch of idiots and jokesters.

** This might be because [[spoiler: the story was apparently changed during testing, with the original culprit being Dojima, with his motive likely related to his wife's death. Testers apparently found the idea of living with a serial killer too intense, requiring the rewrite. If true, this trope was invoked deliberately]].

* ''Team Fortress'' also underwent this change--compare the original ''{{Quake}}'' mod and [[VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic its Valve Software remake]] to its [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 sequel.]] The more realistic and less goofy-looking designs in ''Team Fortress Classic'' compared to ''Team Fortress'', on the other hand, could be interpreted as regular CerebusSyndrome.

* The ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlertSeries'' gives us this. The [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert first installment]] is fairly serious, with you either leading the Soviet Union's attempt to conquer Europe or the heroic Allied defense in an [[AlternateHistory alternate]] WorldWarII using mostly-realistic weapons. The [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2 second game]] features [[SchizoTech out-of-place technology]] (More of it than the first game), PsychicPowers, and attack squid. The [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3 third game]] includes, among other things, [[BearsAreBadNews bear cannons]] and Creator/TimCurry.
