** The Sun and Moon series' introduction of Gladion as a more serious rival only features the classmates at the Pokémon Academy in one scene in the entire episode; and the roles of other comedic supporting characters such as Team Rocket and the recurring Team Skull grunts are downplayed as well. The episode which had Litten join Ash's team is also significantly lighter on jokes and comedic moments [[spoiler: especially when it's heavily implied that the elder Stoutland has died]]. The normally-colorful animation also takes on a more muted palette, and [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness even Team Rocket can't bring themselves to try any of their schemes when they find out about what happened]]. The usual color scheme and upbeat tone don't return until the end of the episode.

** Subverted during the finale of Season 2 when the shit really hits the fan. One of the Tachikoma shyly asks Ichikawa if it could be excused for a while, because it has "something important to do with the other guys". [[spoiler:They then hijack the server that holds their [=AIs=] and then use it to destroy a [[NukeEm nuclear missile]] before it hits an urban area, killing themselves in the process.]]

** The XY Mega Evolution specials featured Maron as a supporting comedic character. The last one has her appearance reduced and the catalyst for kicking off the XYZ series is related to her Chespin falling ill [[spoiler: from coming in contact with the Zygarde Core]]. She doesn't even appear until the series is nearing its denouement.

* ''WeternAnimation/InsideOut'': Bing Bong, the eccentric imaginary friend who Joy and Sadness spend time with on their journey, actually performs a HeroicSacrifice to save Joy from disappearing out of existence before the more emotionally heavy climax.



* ''Disney/TheLionKing'', during the stampede where Mufasa is killed, early on Zazu gets taken out of commission by Scar; Later this is done loosely in the climax, during the scene in the cave of Pride Rock during the final battle where Pumbaa saves Timon and Zazu from the hyenas, Pumbaa and Timon disappear until Scar is eaten by the hyenas. The midquel at least explains what they were doing, however.

In another scene, Timon and Pumbaa are absent during the scene where Simba and Nala are arguing, because Simba hasn't yet overcome the memories of Mufasa's death and feels responsible for it (even though it was Scar who killed Mufasa). Later this is done loosely in the climax, during the scene in the cave of Pride Rock during the final battle where Pumbaa saves Timon and Zazu from the hyenas, Pumbaa and Timon disappear until Scar is eaten by the hyenas.

* In ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'', Linkara's Conflict with "The Entity" is preceded by its slowly absorbing everyone else on earth, thus eliminating the quirky, humorous supporting characters (Ninja-Style Dancer, Harvey Finevoice, Pollo, Iron Liz) and leaving Linkara to face it alone. Interestingly, the biggest "clown" in the cast, [[DiscoDan 90s Kid]], is instead possessed by the entity, so he is still at least physically present (as much as he usually is anyway; [[ActingForTwo Linkara plays him]]), but behaving in a far from humorous manner.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'': The last time we see ThoseTwoBadGuys, the Egyptian priests [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Hotep and Huy, Huy]], who are noticeably more "cartoony" than the rest of the cast, Ramses chases them out of the palace during the Plagues.rather intense "Plagues" song.



* Done in a way in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama World Tour''. Every single elimination in the first half of the season, barring [[CrazyAwesome Izzy]], was from Team Victory, lighthearted and easygoing characters. Once they were gone, all that remained to get rid of was [[DeadpanSnarker Noah]]. With every funny character gone (except [[CreatorsPet Owen]] and [[KeepingSecretsSucks Tyler]]), that made room for drama with the love triangle that took up about three episodes. Things lightened up a little after Gwen, Courtney, and Duncan were voted off though.

** Hilariously averted in the 3rd case of Justice for All. Instead of shooing out Lawrence "Moe" Curls who is a literal clown, he is one of the witnesses. The only things that are shooed away would be Moe's clown antics which no one in court laughed about.
