* ''Disney/TheLionKing'', during the stampede where Mufasa is killed, early on Zazu gets taken out of commission by Scar. 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. The midquel at least explains what they were doing, however.

*** S: When Eugeal and Mimete battle the Sailor Scouts, the monsters get ''increasingly'' goofy as time goes on. But once Mimete is gone? The series ''immediately'' turns off its SillinessSwitch, with the exception of the [[RunningGag Witches 5 door being changed to "Witches 3" clumsily]].

** The Koenig brothers were identical triplets (all played by comedian Patton Oswald) with high-level SHIELD clearance who appeared at the tail end of Season 1 and the first half of Season 2. Their quirkiness and overall weirdness (it was implied that they weren't entirely human and that there may have been more than three of them) provided some levity during their brief tenure on the show, but they were quietly phased out as Season 2's Inhuman plotline kicked into gear, with no further mention or appearances even though the two surviving brothers are still with SHIELD.

Alternatively, the characters may still appear in the story, but without making their usual jokes... In extreme cases, [[BreakTheCutie that's the whole idea of the story]]. In less extreme cases, the characters may receive a "DudeNotFunny" rebuke, or simply stay cool because of the ongoing drama.

* Notably subverted in ''Theatre/LesMiserables'': shortly after [[spoiler:all the students, save Marius, are killed on the barricade]], who should appear but comic relief Thenardier! Only to sing a song about how God is dead, steal a ring off of Marius's (supposed) corpse, and exit, robbing more dead people of their valuables [[spoiler:including his own dead son and daughter]]. Instead of shooing out the clowns, they chose to make the clown ''exactly as serious and horrifying as the surrounding action''.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has "Ponyville Confidential" and "A Hearth's Warming Tail"'s third acts being more dramatic and as such, Pinkie Pie disappears before the third acts begin. In the Season 6 finale, "To Where and Back Again", she along with Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Shining Armor, Princess Luna, Twilight Sparkle, Spike, Flurry Heart, Fluttershy, Rarity, Princess Celestia and Princess Cadence getting kidnapped by Queen Chrysalis. After Starlight Glimmer, Thorax, Trixie and Discord rescue them from the evil ruler, things get more lighthearted.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' has a literal example as Star Butterfly sucks a clown's ghost into a vacuum cleaner before the dramatic finale.
