* ''UglyBetty'' shifted from a dramatic-comedy to focus solely on comedy during Series 2, hence the reason Alan Dale asked that his character Bradford Meade be killed off. Indeed, by the third series the show devolved into a farcical parody of itself, struggling along by rehashing the same tired plotlines. Unfortunately the show only managed to shift back into drama in the last few episodes, long after the cancellation had been announced.

** The contrast between the Sixth Doctor and the Seventh's Doctor's tenure is also thought of as this. The Fifth and Sixth Doctors had increasingly dark and convoluted stories involving parallel universes, and the Sixth Doctor in particular was [[TheMadHatter batshit insane]] and more violent than most preceding doctors (perhaps except for [[CharacterDevelopment some of the early stories with the First Doctor]]). ExecutiveMeddling caused him to be abruptly replaced with the Seventh Doctor, who had much fluffier stories such as "The Happiness Patrol", which, while being a satire on MargaretThatcher's Britain, is mostly remembered for having an evil version of Bertie Basset killing people with fondant.

* The original ''LEGO Star Wars'' was a fairly straight retelling of the prequel trilogy with some added jokes along the way. Later {{LEGO Adaptation Game}}s were full-on over-the-top parodies that only nominally followed the events of the films they were based on.

* The ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' franchise has gotten LighterAndFluffier over the years. Recent titles TastesLikeDiabetes compared to the original game, ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon64'', and ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife''.

* Wes Craven's ''Film/{{Shocker}}'' starts off as the pursuit of a SerialKiller who murders the main character's girlfriend, along with his entire family ([[WouldHurtAChild one of which was a little girl]]). Things start getting a little more farcical once the killer makes a DealWithTheDevil to be turned into electricity so that he can BodySurf around the town. He then starts popping out of inanimate objects; like an armchair. Once the hero and the villain both get TrappedInTVLand and interrupt a bunch of live TV shows with their fighting, one has completely forgotten that it's a 'HORROR' movie. [[spoiler:The hero even gets the bad guy to do some amusing tricks using a remote control just to emphasize how silly the film has become.]]

* Creator/TimBurton's two ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' films were much darker and grimmer than the AdamWest version of the franchise, but still contained hammy villain performances and plenty of camp, such as constant Prince songs or rocket penguins. When Creator/JoelSchumacher took over, he dropped the dark elements, leaving nothing to counterbalance the HamAndCheese of Creator/JimCarrey as The Riddler, Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze, and the infamous Bat-nipples.

* The ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series has a vast, fairly mature storyline involving the powers of light and darkness, with hammy villains and {{eldritch abomination}}s galore. But as soon as Sora sets foot into the 100 Acre Wood, all of that is swept under the rug as he spends an afternoon with a sentient group of stuffed animals who rarely spell words correctly, and the biggest problem they have to worry about is getting lost right in their own backyard.

** Go back a step further to the oft-overlooked ''Koudelka'', which ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' is a sequel to. This game is ''dark'' and deadly serious, as is fitting for a SurvivalHorror RPG, and makes ''Shadow Hearts'' look like a laugh riot high adventure in comparison. Roger Bacon is the only real source of humor in the game, while everyone else is depressed and soaked in tragedy and horror. The bad ending is the canonical ending for this one.

* Creator/JoelSchumacher's two ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' films are supposed to be canonically tied to Creator/TimBurton's, but Creator/JimCarrey as The Riddler, Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze, Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl, and nipples on the batsuit make it hard to swallow.
