* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' usually avoids this due to its slice of life nature. The end of season 18, "The Last Day", stands out. The main characters graduate from Ratburn's class into fourth grade. Ratburn is instead now DW's and Bud's kindergarten teacher.

*''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' took the world by storm (literally) in the episode Simpsoviced when Bart got a new treehouse. WOWOW!

* The GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' reveals that Norman Osborn was the ''only'' Green Goblin, even during season 1 - he'd ''framed Harry'' for his crimes and the Norman we saw when "Harry" was elsewhere as the Goblin was in fact the Chameleon. What about the time Harry had the injury the Goblin had sustained? ''Norman broke his own son's leg.'' Oh, and you know how in most continuities, Norman is driven nuts or given a SplitPersonality by his strength enhancers? Well, ''[[NotBrainwashed not so in this one]]''. Harry's overdose made him the perfect patsy, but Norman, using a much more controlled release, was ''one hundred percent himself,'' and did all of this with an unaltered mind. Dude.

** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E19CrusadersOfTheLostMark Crusaders Of The Lost Mark]]": The Cutie Mark Crusaders finally get their cutie marks, thus ending a major plot arc that had been ongoing since season one. Also, they get their ArchEnemies Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon to undergo [[HeelFaceTurn Heel-Face Turns]]. Unlike Twilight's ascension, which was spoiled weeks beforehand and even during commercial breaks both before and during that episode's first run, there was ''no warning whatsoever'' that anything like this was going to happen (aside from some hints in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E6AppleoosasMostWanted Appleoosa's Most Wanted]]", and the fact that it was a MusicalEpisode like Twilight's ''and'' the fifth anniversary of the series, that nobody managed to pick up on). Never before has the fandom been blindsided as it was here.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' had Operation G.R.O.W.U.P., the 1st season finale which set the stage for the show's eventual CerebusSyndrome, and ItGetsBetter from there.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had "[[TenLittleMurderVictims And Then There Were Fewer]]". TV anchorwoman Diane Simmons is being replaced by a younger woman ([[MidLifeCrisis she just turned 40]]) and at the same time stood up by her new love interest JamesWoods...so she concocts [[GambitRoulette an elaborate scheme]] to kill James and frame co-anchor Tom Tucker for the murder. When things [[SpannerInTheWorks don't quite]] go [[Manga/DeathNote just as planned]], James and semi-regular cast member Mrs. Goldman are KilledOffForReal, as well as Jillian's husband seen only once before, Quagmire's [[KavorkaMan current]] girlfriend, and James' second girlfriend. Then Diane almost kills Lois after Lois figures things out, and is turn killed by Stewie ([[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou who claims to be the only one who can kill Lois]]). Tom meanwhile is successfully framed and sent to prison.

** And then the ChristmasEpisode [[spoiler: a mere three weeks later ended with Stewie preventing Brian's death, and retconing it all off.]]]] [[WordOfGod Seth Green]] later claimed the whole thing was done for shock value, to remind all the viewers it was a show where anything could happen and likely wood. (Meaning, it was ''meant'' to be a Wham Episode with a ''huge'' Wham.)

** The season 2 premiere revealed Equestria's horrible past, broke Celestia's pedestal of perfection, brought a hyper-competent villain who [[CurbstompBattle curbstomped]] the mane six without breaking a sweat, and closed the deal with a lot of NightmareFuel. And the next episode takes this FromBadToWorse.
** "Lesson Zero" shook up the status quo by allowing the other main characters to write [[AnAesop friendship letters]] to Princess Celestia and thereby shifted the show's overall focus slightly away from Twilight, as well as fully establishing a [[SanitySlippage slightly dark]] [[SuperOCD vice]] for the latter that would hinder her for several episodes after.
** "Secret of My Excess" also surprised everyone by making Spike confess his crush to Rarity... and Rarity not only already knew, but she also took Spike's confession with a smile ''and teary eyes.''
** "A Canterlot Wedding", otherwise known as the Season Two Finale, gave us Queen Chrysalis and the changelings. Not only did it add more to the world of Equestria and give us an impressive villain, it surprised EVERYPONY, seemingly coming out of left-field. Especially notable, considering the advertisement for it.
*** Perhaps even more importantly, it gave us the dual revelations that Celestia and Luna ''aren't'' the only two pony princesses after all and that Twilight Sparkle has a big brother.
** "Magical Mystery Cure" in which Twilight rewrites an ancient spell, thereby becoming an alicorn & a princess. Sweet Celestia, where do we go from here?
** "Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 2" manages to top the above by having the Mane Six relinquish the Elements of Harmony to keep the Tree of Harmony from dying. NothingIsTheSameAnymore, indeed.
** "Flight to the Finish" takes a usually feel good Cutie Mark Crusaders style episode and turns it on its head when we learn that Scootaloo's wings are impaired and she might never actually be able to fly. This is all the more heartbreaking when you consider [[BreakTheCutie that Rainbow Dash is her hero for being the best flier in Equestria]].
