* The two ''Film/ButtercreamGang'' movies by Feature Films for Families experienced this. The first one was a straight drama about growing up, drifting apart from friends, and the pain in trying [[spoiler:(and failing)]] to keep said friendships intact. The second one did a complete 180 from that and was an adventure-comedy complete with buried treasure and inept mooks. Which one is better? It depends on what you're in the mood for.

* The [[WesternAnimation/IceAge3DawnOfTheDinosaurs third]], [[WesternAnimation/IceAge4ContinentalDrift fourth]], and [[WesternAnimation/IceAge5CollisionCourse fifth]] ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' movies. The first [[WesternAnimation/IceAge2TheMeltdown two]], while still humorous, are much darker and more violent and serious than the following three.

* ''Manga/HohzukiIsland'' starts off having the adults being evil and taking out life insurance on the children so that they could kill one of them whenever they were running low on funds, leading to the kids attempting to go to the other side of the island and escape. All deaths that take place are undone [[spoiler:except for one adult]] despite at least one[[note]]Namely, being tossed off a cliff and landing ''on a rock'' so hard that blood splattered from landing on his back[[/note]] revoked "death" being blatantly lethal and it turns out that only the bad guy is actually evil and the adults are actually good.

* 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

* ''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.

So you're following this story. So far, it's a very dark and edgy, tight and gripping thriller. [[AnyoneCanDie Three main characters have died,]] the fourth is having an abortion in order to prevent the [[FetusTerrible evil conspiracy from using her child]] [[ApocalypseMaiden to bring forth the apocalypse]] in a CrapsackWorld. Nobody smiles, ''ever.''

Then you tune in next week, and find out that... the three dead guys [[DeathIsCheap have been resurrected]] thanks to the powers of a MagicalGirl BunnyEarsLawyer who takes the form of a polkadot unicorn. The evil government conspiracy is actually a sham by TheManBehindTheCurtain, who just wants to impress chicks. The heroine's pregnancy was just a [[TheFoodPoisoningIncident hallucination brought on by overcooked chocolate-chip cookies]] (and she's fine now). The real villain is a demonic dog from hell who speaks entirely in pig latin. There's NoFourthWall any more, and the characters have a degree of MediumAwareness. Everyone ''[[PerpetualSmiler always]]'' smiles.

** The early "Treehouse Of Horror" episodes were dark, murderous and were morbid at best and downright terrifying at worst (the one in which teachers are gradually eating through students is a perfect example). The modern ones tend to keep the bloodiness but have become much sillier. How many horror stories have you heard of that start off with a MediaWatchdog getting murdered by a {{media classification|s}}? The comic book series based on it did ''the exact opposite'', and now focuses on more straightfoward horror stories with some BlackComedy.
