This could be a result of the story being an {{Indecisive Parody}}, where the line between parody and straight example was not very clear from the start.

This can also naturally result in a MisaimedFandom as well as a {{Broken Base}}, due to fans having differing opinions on whether the shift was for the better. If the parody/satire initially served the purpose of making an intellectual point via critiquing and criticizing the subject of its parody/satire, the parody/satire shift can also result in a BrokenAesop.

* At first, ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'' was a strictly humourous series that parodied (among other things) various tropes of superhero comics. Later on, it began to add serious elements to the story, becoming more like a straight superhero comic (with added humour) than a parody.

** The stories which bring Ankh-Morpork closer to the Industrial Age (creation of newspapers in ''Discworld/TheTruth'', the development of the clacks as somewhere between the telegraph and the Internet, any book involving Moist von Lipwig) tend to be far more rooted in reality than ''Discworld/MovingPictures'' and ''Discworld/SoulMusic'', which are mostly parodies and puns based on real world media and have a ResetButton to prevent the Discworld from modernising itself out of its fantasy setting.

* And later still, when the books become more based around using humour and parody to discuss aspects of the human condition like death, justice and the nature of belief, even the Dungeon Dimension creatures are phased out in favour of more concrete threats and villains.
