** Some background is necessary here. In the original video game, there is a scene [[spoiler: featuring TheEmperor Soniel stabbing WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds and GodEmperor Fou-lu with a [[EvilWeapon soul-devouring sword]]; Fou-lu pulls the sword out and [[OffWithHisHead decapitates]] Soniel [[HoistByHisOwnPetard with the very sword]] he was stabbed with.]] This ended up being [[NoExportForYou Japanese-only]] and was completely {{Bowdlerise}}d out of both international releases and the Windows port, despite the game being a PlayStation release (in an era where gory games were already well known for the platform) and despite [[spoiler: the decapitation scene being depicted solely in black-on-red silhouette]]. (This ended up in fact being rather a bit of a WhatHappenedToTheMouse in this game until videos came out of the censored scenes.)

*''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' pushes RealRobotGenre into a logical conclusion, not only it [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter omitted beam weapons]] to emphasize the seriousness, the setting of ChildSoldier goes DarkerAndEdgier compared to the past. Fights are brutal, messy affairs with an emphasis on blunt weapons to crush the cockpits of the enemy mechs, and not even the Gundam is immune to the lack of supplies that force Tekkadan to scavenge parts from fallen enemy mechs and use retrofitted mobile workers as support units.

* ''Manga/MedakaBox'': a major GenreShift occurs not too far into the series and all of a sudden this high school slice of (eccentric) life turns into pretty much a straight shonen with super-powered individuals being the weekly norm.

** Unfortunately but predictably, it ended up dragging its sister series ''Manga/{{xxxHOLiC}}'' along for the ride, turning what was on its own a simple series into a mind-screw in its own right. With the two combined, they've just become one big head-hurting mess that's nearly impossible to completely make sense of. ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny EVEN THE CREATORS HAVE ADMITTED THEY ARE CONFUSED WITH WHAT HAPPENED]].''

* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Daiyoukai are very special {{youkai}} that are too powerful to be killed by normal means, not even when stabbed through the heart. Inuyasha's Daiyuokai father was killed by another Daiyoukai, Ryuukossai who was sealed with a dog-fang through the heart until killed by turning his own power back on himself. Sesshoumaru achieves Daiyoukai status very late in the manga when stabbed through the heart by greatest evil, Magatsuhi. It neither kills nor seals him, instead infuriating him into unlocking his [[ItWasWithYouAllAlong hidden true potential]]. [[TagALongKid Shippou]] is eventually confirmed to also be one day capable of achieving Daiyoukai status.

* ''Manga/InuYasha'': The story is absolutely full of {{youkai}}, ranging from mooks to very powerful beings who are established and dangerous threats. However, there are a couple of youkai that go well beyond this level to become beings so incredibly powerful that they're officially known as "daiyoukai". The only two youkai referred to as daiyoukai early in the manga are Inuyasha's father and Ryuukossai, the youkai that killed him. Sesshoumaru, who's far more powerful than almost anyone else in the story reaches daiyoukai distinction later in the manga when he [[ItWasWithYouAllAlong achieves his full power]] and just before the FinalBattle, it's revealed that Shippou will one day be able to become one as well, although as a BrattyHalfPint, he still has a long way to go. Youkai are hard to kill, Daiyoukai almost impossible. Ryuukossai could not be killed by stabbing him through his heart, only sealed into stasis. Sesshoumaru also couldn't be killed by stabbing him through the heart. However, unlike Ryuukossai, it won't even seal him into stasis. It'll just annoy him.
