** Another example, Buu Arc specific, also being when [[FakeUltimateHero Mr. Satan]] convinces Majin Buu not to cause anymore destruction by explaining what the differences are between good and bad. Majin Buu not only agrees to never kill again but also starts to show his side of love and compassion with a new dog the he and Mr Satan had adopted when Majin Buu healed it.[[spoiler: Then the dog to is shot at the end of the episode]].
* ''Manga/DragonBall'''s successor, ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', is steeped in mood whiplash. Most of this results from the introduction of Beerus and Whis, introduced in the first story arc as villains and hands-down the most powerful beings in their particular universe ([[AlwaysABiggerFish though not, by any means, within the multiverse]]). In subsequent arcs, their power could be a [[StoryBreakerPower story breaker]] that would instantly solve any plot, but they just aren't interested in helping the main characters, so they spend most of their screentime as ThoseTwoGuys making wry comments about plot developments and getting into amusing antics on the side. The whiplash gets even stronger in the "Future Trunks" Arc, which features the show's most seriously evil villain so far and is set in a very depressing BadFuture. This plot is interspersed with Beerus and Whis's interactions and an entirely humorous plot involving the [[KingOfAllCosmos King of Everything]] wanting to be Goku's friend, all part of the set up for a TournamentArc later on.

** Between the sad parts of America cleans out the storage you have the episode with Rome's song andthe episode with Italy trying to spy on the Allies. Basicly you have light hearted episode 15 with Japan and Western Cultures, more serious episode 16 about China's and Japan's history, episode 17 which is about America remembering about his and England's past, episode 18 with Rome's song, episode 19 with Canada not being noticed then back to sad for the continuation of America's Cleaning Out the Storage.

* ''LightNovel/DestructionFlagOtome'' is a lighthearted comedy series about a girl reincarnating as a literal [[DatingSim otome game]] villain but turning into a BlitheSpirit who amasses a giant harem instead of getting killed off like she's supposed to. However, one chapter cuts away from this back to her past life as we see her best friend grieving for the first friend she ever made, though at the end she does come to terms with it.

%%Also, this is an objective trope, so don't refer to Awesome Moments, Tear Jerkers or other YMMV things.



** Episode 13/the beginning of volume 4 goes from a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} (featuring Black Haru) to dark and unsettling (featuring Yuki and Akito) to a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}} (featuring Yuki and Tohru), all in the course of ''half'' an episode.

** ''Fullmetal Alchemist'' often includes humorous moments in the middle of fights. The author has stated herself that manga is supposed to be entertaining, and thus wanted to minimize the focus on sad scenes (then again, this is the same manga that has [[spoiler:Hughes' well-known TearJerker funeral scene]]).
** The manga has gone so far as to actually throw in a humorous moment right after a character meets a gruesome fate, in ''the same scene'', [[spoiler: namely, Yoki charging in right after Heinkel ''rips Kimbley's throat out'']], or having characters crack jokes about political propaganda right next to [[spoiler: Mrs Bradley]] breaking down when told her husband and child are apparently dead. In chapter 102 she also throws one in right ''before'' a Tearjerker moment, [[spoiler:Edward comically pulls Roy over by the ankle when he mentions the Gate to check to see if he still has all his limbs]] TWO PANELS before it's revealed that [[spoiler:Roy has lost his eyesight to the Gate]]. As the series progresses, things get darker and more serious, but instead of [[CerebusSyndrome cutting the humor]], it refuges in more extreme [[MoodWhiplash mood whiplashes]] and GallowsHumor.
** It's not always the funny moments that do it, though-- Chapter 107, for example, combines 3 or 4 [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome ludicrously awesome moments]] with one of the series' most impressive {{Tear Jerker}}s. You'll feel like bawling your eyes out and {{squee}}ing at the same time.

** Best example is in Brotherhood episode 19 when [[spoiler:the show [[NaturalSpotlight shines a spotlight on Havoc]] during his [[ManlyTears Manly Tears]] moment about how he loves big boobs. Directly followed up in the rest of the episode with a mix of horror and [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Moments of Awesome]], with a RoaringRampageOfRevenge[=/=]HeroicBSOD thrown in for good measure.]]

*** Heck, the first series' ''first episode'' is a... [[UpToEleven quite extreme]] case of this. It kicks off with a flashback [[TheTeaser cold open]] of the brothers trying to ressurect their dead mother, which, as you know, goes to hell pretty quickly, as the exciting scene turns to sheer NightmareFuel when the audience sees Edward knelt over, clutching a bloody stump where his leg [[AnArmAndALeg once was]], and staring in horror at the... ''[[EldritchAbomination thing]]'' he and Al made and then [[TheScream screaming in terror]]. This is promptly followed by a [[FunnyMoments amusing scene]] a 15-year old Edward wandering in the desert.

** An in-episode example would be "Speak Like a Child." Most of the episode is lighthearted and silly as Spike and Jet attempt to find the right equipment to watch a [[TheRing mysterious videotape]]. When they finally succeed, they find out that the tape is [[spoiler:a message which Faye made as a child and sent to herself in the future, telling her never to lose her younger self. She doesn't remember a thing.]] ''[[TearJerker Ouch]].''

** After about 20 chapters of drama, fights, long-speculated-upon backstory, and a build up to TheReveal, we get a FanService-heavy BreatherEpisode / FuroScene. It is [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments very funny]] though. And then slammed us all with Ako breaking down in secret.
** The [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments funny]] and [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments sweet]] "Kiss Kiss Carnival" chapters being immediately followed by a series of [[WhamEpisode Wham Chapters]].

** Chapter 340 wields this trope like a blunt weapon. [[spoiler:Asuna's back, and saved Negi: Awesome. Then they start hugging: Heartwarming. Then they get into one of their usual arguments, with what is essentially God standing RIGHT THERE: Funny. Then Asuna and Negi defeat the BigBad, and just as the first cheer escapes from this Awesome moment, turns out God hijacked Nagi's body at some point and the only thing he could say after seeing his son for the first time in Six years? "Negi, come and kill me. Then everything will be over." OH look, here comes the tears.]]
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' - slams very rapidly from sad to inspirational to very, very sad when [[spoiler:Kamina is mortally wounded, but gets back up and destroys the remaining opposition in a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome stirring scene]]... ''then'' he dies]]. Later, during the first few post-TimeSkip episodes, after a fast-paced rollercoaster ride of over-the-top badassitude, it seems like the show actually jumped off the same slippery slope that took ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Fortunately, that was just to build up momentum to fly up even further UpToEleven.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' is usually a cute and silly series, but occasional has strips that are very serious and very TearJerker (such as Russia's History and America Cleans the Storage). Interestingly, in a Japanese poll for the first volume, one of these serious strips ranked first.
** If you follow the anime- [[http://hetalia.wikia.com/wiki/Episode_45 episode 45.]] The [[http://hetalia.wikia.com/wiki/Episode_44 previous episode]] was the usual comedy (with [[spoiler: Swirzerland trying to teach self defense to Liechtenstein]], Canada's ButtMonkey episode an some cute America and Japan stuff), and then, ''bam!'', you get a TearJerker flashback (of [[spoiler: Liechtenstein almost DyingAlone in the rain after UsefulNotes/WorldWarI pushes her close to the DespairEventHorizon]]) that is '''far''' more dramatic than it was in the manga at the start and by the end a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}} (with [[spoiler:Liech being saved by Switzerland, and then in the present, her thanking him]]) in an episode that is basically ''completely'' serious, though not dark.
** Between the TearJerker parts of America cleans out the storage you have the episode with Rome's song andthe episode with Italy trying to spy on the Allies. Basicly you have light hearted episode 15 with Japan and Western Cultures, more serious episode 16 about China's and Japan's history, episode 17 which is about America remembering about his and England's past and makes you want to cry, episode 18 with Rome's song, episode 19 with Canada not being noticed then back to a TearJerker for the continuation of America's Cleaning Out the Storage.

** Speaking of Gundam, the ongoing story arcs from the parody manga ''Gundam-San'' are the absolute king of this. Best example would probably be ''Garma of the Space Island'', a goofy SliceOfLife story about the [[BigScrewedUpFamily Zabi clan]] as a poor family living in a Japanese-style shack. Things take a turn for the worse after Zeon Deikun shows up, but the absolute biggest WhamEpisode comes when [[spoiler:it turns out the whole thing was Kycilia reminiscing about her dead family, right when Char shows up to deliver her [[BoomHeadshot memorable death scene]].]]

** There's probably at least one person who tuned in to the first episode right after the first scene and opening credits, knowing nothing about the show, and assumed the series was a comedy. It must be like playing ''{{Eversion}}'' blind.

* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' loves doing these, building up extremely dramatic moments only to completely derail them immediately after. Even genuinely serious moments tend to be be followed by heavily comedic ones. A good example is the arc where Nagisa receives an order to leave earth and spends a couple of chapters coming to terms with having to leave her friends and is rife with both heartwarming and tearjerking moments. Then the very last page of the last chapter of the arc reveals [[spoiler: the whole thing was an AprilFoolsDay prank by her brother GoneHorriblyRight.]]

* In Chapter 113 of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', after the Provisional Hero License exam ended, the students check the monitor to see their names, meaning that they've passed the exam. On the last page, were treated to [[spoiler:a shocked, comical expression of Izuku Midoriya as he sees his name, but Shoto Todoroki and Inasa Yoarashi are both disappointed not to see their's. Notably, the panel with Todoroki looking sadly at the monitor is directly below Midoriya's, driving the contrast even more:]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Todoroki:''' [[MyGreatestFailure I'm not up there]].
