* ''RozenMaiden'' much? The series mixes the daily antics of a group of immature, childish dolls trying to acclimate themselves to and enjoy their new life, with much [[HilarityEnsues hilarity ensuing]]...except that these same dolls are forced to compete in a Highlander-style fight, forced to kill their own sisters or be killed by them.

* Episode 33 of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' at first seemed like a lighthearted BreatherEpisode where Matt and TK get caught up in the mischievous antics of Pumpkinmon and Gotsumon...then along comes [[KnightOfCerebus Myotismon]], who both has no tolerance for fun and games and is disgusted that the two aren't searching for the eight child and brutally ''[[ShooOutTheClowns destroys]]'' them (note that digimon destroyed in the human world do not regenerate into digi-eggs and are therefore DeaderThanDead), emphasizing the extent of his cruelty and how dangerous he is.

** The [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime version]] has plenty of Mood Whiplash as well. It'll be serious, serious -- ten seconds of comedy that come out of nowhere -- back to serious. There seems to be less of this in the latter portion of the series, which could probably be attributed to many things including the darker tone of the show overall and the anime having overtaken the manga. The 2003 anime makes use of detached, noncanonical {{OVA}}s for the MoodWhiplash feel. For example, the Chibi Party OVA.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' 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]]).

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' generally starts each arc with someone dying horribly (or at least a mutilated corpse in plain sight). And then on the other side of the opening credits, lighthearted comedy. And then things go steadily downhill again.

** The anime has two noticeable whip lashes. Right after Meakashi ends, [[spoiler:the arc where Shion goes the a murder spree that [[NeverLiveItDown ruined her reputation]]]], we see her again in the next episode. Normal and happy, back to her GenkiGirl self; it's more striking then with the other characters. Next is at the end of the first season. Everything seems happy and fine, until you notice [[spoiler:this is another world, which is why everyone's happy and back to normal.]]

*** One notable scene in the manga is [[spoiler:Shion's]] death. We see her falling, then are shown a diabetes inducing scene of "What if" [[spoiler:that's very much like what happens in the Kai arcs]], before we get a gory shot of her dead body.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has the title character coming back to the village from a particularly arduous battle to find [[spoiler:[[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments the entire village congratulating him and recognizing him as a hero]]]]. This is then followed by a rather amusing scene of a squad of Cloud nin [[spoiler:coming the village to inform them ''their'' village plans to take care of Sasuke and Akatsuki]] while one of them talks about theoretical girlfriends he would get while traveling but upset when he leaves them. But ''then'' [[spoiler:we find out that Tsunade's attempt to save the villager's from Pain's attack didn't just render her unconscious, but ''put her in a coma'' so the village council decides she needs to be replaced in the meantime and '' Danzo'' successfully pushes his way into the becoming the acting Sixth Hokage]]. All of this in '''one chapter''' (which is called "[[IronicEpisodeTitle The Joyful Village]]").

** Something similar to Bleach's omake happened with ''Naruto'' after Shippuden started, although omakes weren't shown after some of the more serious episodes (especially around the time [[spoiler:Asuma]] died).

* ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'': Before the movie proper, viewers were treated with a happy little short about the heroes' Pokémon having a vacation in a park. Five minutes after it ends, the actual movie then shows a Pokémon killing a bunch of scientists and blowing up the lab it was made in.

* One chapter of ''Manga/KoeNoKatachi'' is a fun FestivalEpisode. It's a BreatherEpisode after the previous few bleak chapters. That is until the end where [[spoiler:Shouko returns home and tries to [[DrivenToSuicide jump off a balcony]].]]

** Fansubbers exclusive, but the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PD-_oLjmCGY "Morning Rescue" commercials]] in the Madoka Fansubbers tend to serve as this. We get dark, creepy magical girl show mood and suddenly, wacky commercial. Fans quickly [[MemeticMutation latched onto it]], seeing it as a refuge from the depressing and horrific nature of the show.

* ''Manga/{{SaiKano}}'': The mood often switches radically ''on the same page''. ''Repeatedly''.

** Despite the incredibly depressing content, EVA's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAvg0RHJTdA theme music]] is some of the most upbeat around. It almost taunts you, as you know what to expect after it ends.

** An even more drastic example in the same series is episode sixteen, where literally seconds after the [=HiMEs=] are declaring their eternal friendship, the LovableTraitor Nagi tells them that they must [[spoiler:fight each other in an InvoluntaryBattleToTheDeath, in which defeat causes the same disintegration to the person dearest to the loser]].
** The {{Post Episode Trailer}}s are often humorous, in contrast to the dark tone of later episodes, often making light of the tragic and horrific events that happen in them. In the preview for Episode 25, [[spoiler:Yuuichi]] asks [[spoiler:Mai]] to repeat what she said to him [[spoiler:as he was dying from Shiho's Child being destroyed]], noting that he couldn't hear her and that he can't ascend to Heaven until he hears it, causing her to refuse to tell him out of annoyance.
* Entire series Mood Whiplash include ''{{Gatekeepers}}'' and its sequel, ''Anime/{{Gatekeepers 21}}''.

* Believe it or not, ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' has tons of examples of this. Mixed in with the GenreSavvy characters and banana-skin related tomfoolery, there are some pretty [[TearJerker tear jerking]] moments there.

* Parodied in ''NininGaShinobuden''. The series is more or less entirely comic, but the ending of episode six is treated entirely dramatically, complete with hints at a dramatic backstory and overarcing plot line. The rest of the series completely ignores this scene until the last episode, when the characters realize that they forgot to follow up on that plot thread, and attempt to create a MagicalGirl storyline as a cover.
