** Also why there hasn't been a Creator/StanLee {{Cameo}}, since these tend to be comedic BiggedLipAligatorMoment's in the film. Instead the shows has his face beeing used on campaign posters from the NYPD, shown throughout the shows.

* In ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', when [[spoiler:Kamina dies in a blaze of glory]], much of the humor is gone from the series. Kittan takes up most of the humor left, [[spoiler:then HE dies in a blaze of glory]]. Nia takes some humor, but it's more because she can be pretty [[TheDitz ditzy]]. [[spoiler:Then SHE dies after marrying Simon (well, not so much "dies" as "is erased from existence"). Violently killing off the recurring cast before the GrandFinale is almost a law for HumongousMecha series. ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', therefore, obeys this with episode 24, although in TTGL style this is done with flair. Jougen and Barinbou, in particular, have their CrowningMomentOfAwesome as they make a HeroicSacrifice to save Gimmy and Darry, then they die ''laughing maniacally''... and take out an Anti-Spiral ''fleet'' with their death.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' did it in the episode, ''Ned 'N Edna's Blend'' during the play about the crucifixion of Jesus (with Homer playing the role). Rather than botching it up with his usual shenanigans, Homer's performance as Jesus during the crucifixion is actually dead serious, with even Ned Flanders being impressed with it.

* The Cupid Day episode of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is the last of the show's predominantly-comedic episodes; it ends with Shirley regaining all of her old, traumatic memories, and in the very next episode, Shirley is killed pointlessly, setting both Lelouch and Suzaku on severe revenge paths.
* ''[[Manga/CodeGeassNightmareOfNunnally Nightmare of Nunnally]]'' and ''Suzaku of the Counterattack'': The Ashford Academy tends to fade around halfway through the series, typically getting only a mere mention at best, and the student council members hardly appear at all.

* Occurs very noticeably in Issue #10 of ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'': for most of "[[StartOfDarkness Nightmare In The Dream Palace]]" you're playing through the Black Signal's memories of the wild night on the town he had with the hilariously dickheaded Che Garcia Hansson [[spoiler: back when he was still human and called John]]; this particular night out features punch-ups with [[ChefOfIron Akashi]], duels with [[{{Oni}} the House In Exile]], BulletDancing with the Korinto-Kai, and even a dance-off with Ricky Pagan. Exactly one scene after Che leaves Kaidan, the owner of the memories is charged with detonating a [[FantasticNuke Filthy device]] on the Tokyo subways; you not only have to fight off his nightmares of [[spoiler: [[TheDreaded Lilith]] and what she might do to him if he fails]], but you're given a horrific recollection of the exact moment he detonated the bomb [[spoiler: and became the Black Signal. Worse still, the Black Signal then realizes that you've been reading his memories and [[PokeInTheThirdEye retaliates]] by turning the mission into a MindRape of the player character.]] Even the Black Signal lampshades just how grim everything got once Che departed.

* The two moose are completely absent during the last part of ''Disney/BrotherBear'', where Kenai's vengeful brother Denahi has him cornered due to him seeing Kenai as the bear that killed their oldest brother, Sitka. However, the moose start to reappear again when Sitka's ghost comes back to save Kenai by turning him back into a human so that both his brothers can accept their guilt, but do not do anything at all until Kenai decides to remain a bear for the rest of his life.
* ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'': The mice tend to be absent on every scene involving [[BigBad Lady Tremaine]], and near the end Jaq and Gus get trapped by Lucifer the cat as they attempt to free Cinderella, prompting her to request help from the birds [[SummonBiggerFish to summon Bruno the dog]] on him.

* In ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', [[spoiler:Ibuki Mioda]], one lighthearted, cheerful and fairly humorous student, is murdered in the third chapter, as a sign that the game is getting significantly darker. This is even an EnforcedTrope, as her killer lampshades that it's precisely ''because'' of her carefree, quirky personality that made her so well liked and her death was intended to plunge everyone into despair.
** In the third game, ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' we have [[spoiler: Miu Iruma]], the loud, perverted source of a lot of humour in the story, particularly the trials. Her death and [[spoiler: the identity of her killer]] ''instantly'' causes a significant change in tone and the remaining students are drastically shaken by the AwfulTruth.
