** 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]].

*** Even more tragically, when [[Determinator Gon]] and Killua prepare themselves to get stronger to return to the country and save Kite, complete with[[HeroicSecondWind their triumphant theme song playing in the background.]] Why is it tragic?

** In episode 16, Kousei explains to Nagi the kind of person Kaori is, calling her a "strong person". Cue a scene of Kaori [[spoiler: crying because she can't hold her violin bow properly anymore]].

[[spoiler: The next scene when Kousei visiting Kaori alone at night, her attitude before drawing parallels to his own mother's behavior shortly before her death, further foreshadowing Kaori's eventual demise.]]

** Anyone who reads the manga saw this one coming in Shippuden: the seventh season's ending is a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRY1pfabiiw saccharine cheery feature]] of a certain character. This same season also happens to be the one in which [[spoiler: the main characters' hometown is flattened, and several characters die.]] Episode 165's omake calls attention to this out-of-place and mostly ridiculous ending just before it is used again. Episode 166 [[spoiler: has the same featured character make what is intended to be a HeroicSacrifice, get thrown around like a ragdoll, and stabbed. [[BerserkButton Naruto goes into a rage]] [[UnstoppableRage greater than he's ever been in before]], [[SuperpoweredEvilSide unleashing the fox's six-tailed form for the first time ever]]]]. Cue the same ending!
