* The early parts of ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone'', with the exception of the pilot, were mostly a [[HarmlessVillain Harmless]] VillainProtagonist series revolved around the Urpneys and fairly laid back. "A Day Out" starts off as this, but midway turns into a PerspectiveFlip on the heroes [[EarnYourHappyEnding for once are struggling and using full wits and valour]] to stop Zordrak, who not only has the Dreamstone, but unveils a far more menacing motive for using it (to become "LOOORRD OF THE UUUUNIVEERRRSE!!!"). While episodes after revert back to comical Urpney plots, the more even SympatheticPOV for the heroes, and the slightly more hectic sense of menace, are often maintained.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'' spends most of its second season focusing on completing a spell to restore the barrier that protects San Lorenzo. In the Season finale "No?", [[spoiler: the spell turns out to have been a fake, and ends up reviving an ancient evil instead.]]

** The third and fourth seasons then focus entirely on preparing to deal with the implications of the previous season finale, all adding up to the penultimate episode of the fourth season "The Obelisk" [[spoiler:where the ritual the heroes have been led to believe can destroy the Bloodwolf turns out to be the ritual to finally summon it for real, apparently killing the ChosenOne in the process.

* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' has "King Juli-END?" that ends on a cliffhanger that sees its main character missing and presumed dead by his friends, in a series that had been an episodic comedy up until then.

* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' has "King Juli-END?" that ends on a cliffhanger that sees its main character missing and presumed dead by his friends, in a series that had been an episodic comedy up until then. The next season finale, "Un-King Me" takes it a step further and has Julien completely defeated, forced to run away in retreat as the Kingdom and most of Madagascar is taken over by a ruthless warrior tribe.

* After an entire season of MonsterOfTheWeek episodes, ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' suddenly kicks into high gear in the last five episodes of Season 1:
** Episode 22, "Princess Fragrance", starts off slowly by introducing the existence of a mysterious "healer" who is able to cure Tikki's mysterious sickness. This initially seems downplayed, since he seems to be in the dark about what's actually going on...until the end of his scene, in which he reveals that [[spoiler:he knows Marinette is Ladybug]]. And he shows up in the endcard, just in case we didn't realize he was important.
** Episode 23, "Simon Says", has a subtle one: while it never actually confirms anything, it '''strongly''' hints towards the popular fan theory that [[spoiler:[[BigBad Hawk Moth]] is actually Adrian's father, Gabriel Agreste]].
** Episode 24, "Volpina", blows all both previous examples out of the water. [[spoiler:We (and Adrian) find out that Gabriel is researching the Miraculouses (and in fact ''has'' one- the Peacock Miraculous in his safe); we get several intriguing hints about the lore surrounding the Miraculouses (including the never-before-seen Fox Miraculous, whose existence is only now being revealed); the Akuma victim, Lila, storms off without forgiving Ladybug, with Hawk Moth ominously hinting that Ladybug and Cat Noir haven't seen the last of her; and the episode ends with Marinette going off to the same old man from Episode 22 (now revealed to be the "Great Guardian", whatever that means) to learn the secrets of the Miraculouses.]]
** And this is finally topped off with Episodes 25 and 26, "Origins": a WholeEpisodeFlashback to when Marinette and Adrian first got their Miraculouses. It gives too much new lore about the Miraculouses and Akuma to list here; suffice it to say, it shook up a LOT of headcanons.

** "Heart of Tarkon": Wow, Doc really ''is'' a {{Badass}} after all. Oh, and the Heart of Tarkon is neither a legend or supersition; it's a Benevolent AI that must be awakened to protect the planet. And...its ancient archenemy was The Scarecrow Entity?!

* The season 1 finale of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' not only introduced an original character, Cad Bane, who immediately comes across as a {{Badass}} and unlike most villains thus far succeeds in his mission, nearly wiping out a room full of Senates and an unarmed Skywalker in the process but fueled the launch of Season 2 which in two episodes is already DarkerAndEdgier than almost everything the first season had to offer.

** The villains that paved the way for Cad Bane in the Ryloth Trilogy weren't too stupid either, but they each had a fundamental weakness the commander of the blockade did not expect Anakin's suicide run because of his pride, the droid in ''Innocents of Ryloth'' did not perceive the Twi'leks themselves as threats until they were ripping him apart, and Emir Tambor stalled long enough for Mace Windu to capture him because of his greed. Unlike these villains Cad Bane's only weakness seems to be that nobody else is as {{badass}} as he is.
