** A separate example from above from the Season 5 two-part opening: [[spoiler:[[FromBadToWorse How much worse is it going to get]] for AlternateUniverse Finn in Farmworld? First he is forced to sell his pet to pay back a gang, then tries to find a way around it, then comes across the Ice King's crown which an elderly and insane Marceline warns him to avoid, then gets it stolen by Big D, the gangster threatening his dad, then finds that while he was fighting Big D to get it back, the gang set his hometown on fire, then goes home to find that his house is burning with his family in it, then in desperation puts on the crown, which saves his house by freezing it but drives him insane, ''then'' he tries to stop the town from burning and [[ApocalypseHow sets off the atom bomb,]] ''then'' finds his family but has to send them away so he can't hurt them (even though they are probably going to die of radiation in the next few hours), then finds that he's killed Jake with the bomb as he's in a pool of radioactive goo, '''''and then''''' has to fight him as he is turned into the Lich via radiation. It would presumably get even worse had Jake not cut it off by wishing them back home.]] '''''NiceJobBreakingItHero!'''''

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' started off as a relatively innocent cartoon about twins exploring an apparently sleepy city while staying at the tourist trap of their mysterious Grunkle Stan. Cue [[DarkerAndEdgier Season 2]], which opened with the [[MonsteroftheWeek monsters]] being ''zombies'', and then continues to evolve [[spoiler: [[DemonicPossession possessed brothers]], [[{{Yandere}} a videogame girl wanting to keep Soos forever]], a missing family member who's been traveling 30 years through different dimensions, [[DarkAndTroubledPast dark]] [[FunnyAneurysm pasts]], the GenkiGirl [[HeroicBSOD losing hope]] and locking up in a LotusEaterMachine, and finally ''the end of the world'']]. [[{{Understatement}} That escalated quickly]].

** And on the RealLife level, how many more other fandoms can the bronies become sworn enemies with? [[note]]The list of rivals in FandomRivalry previously took up a fifth of the Trope's page in WesternAnimation alone, and due to constant growth has been spun off into it's own subpage. Yes, you read right, it's the only Western Animation entry in Fandom Rivalry with it's own subpage. There's separate entries in Toys and even InterMedia. And that's just the known rivals. In general, fans of other shows that was/is on The Hub/Discovery Family generally have some vitriol towards bronies, as do fans of shows that had a history with crew or the production houses that are related to Creator/{{DHX}}, or fans of cast members that are related to Creator/OceanGroup. This extends towards fandoms of shows that're on other channels like Boomerang as well due to the show airing on Boomerang outside of the US. And of course some fandom take offense to being crossed with FIM, and some bronies are just so obnoxious that they start wars with other fandoms just because.[[/note]]

** One of the "Itchy and Scratchy" cartoons has them repeatedly pulling larger guns on each other, until the guns get so big that Itchy ends up shooting Scratchy into the sun.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': How much more HomoeroticSubtext can Rebecca Sugar stuff into an 11-minute episode (this is the butt of MANY fandom jokes)? What super-powered Gems and/or Fusions will we meet next? What EldritchAbomination will be redeemed (or not) next by the PowerOfFriendship? What powers will Steven acquire next, and how far will they take him?
