* ''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?

** Also, how much more [[VileVillainSaccharineShow evil]] and powerful can the villains get? No matter how powerful, the magic of friendship WILL beat them.

* ''WesterAnimation/RickAndMorty'': The parallel dimensions in "Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind" become increasingly absurd variations on a theme, from a world where slices of pizza order human delivery, to a world where phones sit on pizza and order chair delivery on human phones, to - [[RuleOfThree finally]] - a world where chairs sit on inanimate humans and order phone take-out on pizza. Rick and Morty even visit an Italian restaurant and purchase some edible phones for themselves.

** Arguably the entire show, on a high concept sci-fi scale. The first episode starts with the most ridiculous thing being that Rick has created a flying car from garage junk, and introduces the concept of the multiverse. By episode six of the first season, the titular characters have [[spoiler: replaced alternate universe versions of themselves who managed to solve a problem our Rick and Morty couldn't, and also coincidentally died around the same time.]] The Council of Ricks in Episode 10 escalates this even further, and by the beginning of Season 2 we're in full-blown mind-fuck territory, if we weren't there already. And it escalates further from there.

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** In terms of creepiness. Name anything creepy about this show--the MindScrew ending of "Tree Trunks" and "Evicted!", the {{Nightmare Face}}s Marceline, Peppermint Butler's desire for flesh--it doesn't matter. ALL of that was topped by '''[[http://static.tumblr.com/nxveby3/K7nluq5f7/tumblr_luonoxu9hq1qeyb9ho1_500.gif this.]]''' Holy. Freaking. ''Crud''. According to Adam Muto, ''[[http://www.formspring.me/MrMuto/q/260624254293255046 this is just the beginning.]]''
** They outdid themselves ''again'' with those [[MonsterClown creepy freaking clown nurses]] in "Another Way", which ''legitimately'' freaked out most people who watched the episode and [[http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lyac9nt7SL1qftn52o1_500.gif undoubtedly scarred many children for years to come. Prepare to lose sleep.]]
** They did it again with those [[spoiler:three freaking scary fruit witches in "Dad's Dungeon", two of whom ''ate the third voraciously''.]]
** 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!'''''

*** "Day of the Larrys" was another season 2 episode that seemed to exist as a challenge to the writers to pack as many gay references as possible before the censors catch on. Maybe they ''did'' ask Dave Wasson (''Time Squad'' show creator) to tone down some parts, but that episode got away with a gay cowboy Larry opening hitting on Tuddrussell in front of Otto at a gay disco (that looks like the one from the ''Simpsons'' episode "Homer's Phobia"), so, unless Dave Wasson reveals behind-the-scenes secrets either in a podcast or on a documentary, there's no way of knowing what the [[CensorDecoy sacrificed scenes]] were.
