* ''WanderingSon'' thrives on this. You get a few moments of comedy before you go back to the melancholy feel of it.

* ''StrikeWitches'' is, for the first eight episodes, a light {{fanservice}} show with [[OnceAnEpisode regular]] Neuroi attacks, albeit with reference to the war going on in the background. The end of episode eight [[spoiler:shows the titular unit's commander pointing a gun at her second in command, demanding her resignation]]. [[FromBadToWorse Things get even worse]] from then on, up to and including [[spoiler:a conspiracy to pull the Witches out of battle]].

* [[MindScrew God only knows]] if Creator/KaoriYuki means to jerk us around as much a she does. ''AngelSanctuary'' will abruptly jump from [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming cute and sweet]] to dismemberment [[BodyHorror via]] [[OrganicTechnology cybernetic tentacles]] and back in almost every volume. For bonus weirdness, [[DissonantSerenity her eerily lighthearted commentary would be more aptly suited to any given Romance Comedy]]...

* ''SpecialA'''s extremely perky second ending theme causes a lot of this - the first one is more restrained and so dramatic ending notes are left be, but the second is just so insanely cheerful it can really throw you for a loop on darker episodes.

* The manga ''Manga/AbsoluteBoyfriend'' is a gag-manga shoujo-story about a [[MagicalGirlfriend Magical Boyfriend]] and the protagonist Riiko, including scenes like stuffing cigarettes into smoking ears to avoid suspicion and boyfriends in pocket-size and... questioning a robot's [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman worth]] and a horribly gut-wrenching DownerEnding.

* ''SoltyRei'' has some episodes where the transition between comedy and serious, somewhat-noirish action takes place in a matter of seconds.

* ''TheSlayers'' adores this and makes full use of it, including [[LampshadeHanging hanging lampshades]] on it at every opportunity. In a particularly memorable scene, [[spoiler: Lina has been put out of action and is possibly dead despite Sylphiel's efforts, the rest of the cast are facing the season's [[BigBad Big Bad]] with various injuries and no hope of winning -- and Amelia's overprotective father, the ridiculously over-the-top Prince Philionel, arrives from nowhere and makes a fool out of himself by challenging the enemy in the name of justice. Zelgadis [[FourthWall explains this]] by commenting, "Well, they can't let these episodes get ''too'' serious."]]
