* ''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/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.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheNewMrPeabodyAndShermanShow'' abruptly abandons its variety show format at the end of its second season finale as [[spoiler:Mr. Peabody travels to the events of a story he was telling, and accidentally creates a time paradox.]]

** "The Bus" was just thought to be a simple pretend bus hijack to teach kids a lesson in skipping school gone wrong only to end up being set up for real and not by accident either! It was because [[spoiler:'''Rob aka Dr. Wrecker''' is the one who tricked the adults to get $1 million and use a real explosive to kill everyone on the bus! The fact that ''Gumball'' (along with audience first time seeing the episode) didn't see it coming means Rob actually made progress in being a real villain at an ''alarming rate'' after the last time we see him in "The Nemesis"! From this point on, what may happened next in anyone's guess since he'll likely be out of jail and the painting from "The Oracle" might be happening ''sooner'' than expected.]]

* The first season finale of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' puts the every previous StoryArc episode in a whole new context when Slade reveals that all the villainous plans he set up were just tests of Robin's skill, who he wants to serve as his new apprentice. And is willing to kill all of Robin's friends to make it happen.

* The ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' season 1 finale, "Kindred Spirits". For two seasons Vlad has mustered all his energy and strength to make Danny his son. Then we find out in "KS" that he had prepared a back-up plan to complete a perfect clone of him as a substitute (incidentally, that's also why Vlad gave Valerie her [[ChekhovsGun first ghost hunting suit]]) on the off-shot that the real Danny never will come to his side. Shit happens and one VillainousBreakdown later, Vlad changes his mind about the boy; that little bastard is '''DEAD MEAT'''.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' has one in the Season 2 finale, where Aelita's memory is drained, and XANA escapes the confines of Lyoko. Followed by Franz returning Aelita's memory, which almost totally deletes him.
** Then there's the Season 3 finale, which has William becoming TheDragon for XANA.
*** No mention of Xana forcing William to destroy Lyoko completely by possessing his body through the Scyphozoa? He [[CurbStompBattle effortlessly]] slashes through the Lyoko Warriors with his BFS, then floats off the edge of the highest platform to the Heart of Lyoko. William stabs it, and the entire virtual world collapses in on itself, taking the SixthRanger with it.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' "Turning Point." The Green Goblin learns Spider-Man's true identity and proceeds to wreak havoc on his life. Mary Jane is supposedly killed in the ensuing bridge battle. The viewers know that she survived, but she fell through a time-dilation accelerator portal - leaving her lost in a void and quite a TearJerker for poor Peter's reactions.

* The two part season finale of ''WesternAnimaton/UltimateSpiderMan''. After a whole season of dancing around it, [[spoiler: ComicBook/NormanOsborn finally becomes the Green Goblin as a result of a fusion of both Spider-Man's blood and the Venom compound. At first driven crazy, he regains his sanity, and seeks to revert his son to Venom. While he fails, a ton of shakeups to the Status Quo happen. Dr. Octopus leaves his services forever, the SHIELD Helicarrier is destroyed (for now), Harry loses the Venom symbiote which Norman takes a sample of, Dr. Connors gets one of his arms crushed, Harry hears of how the Green Goblin came from Spider-man and vows revenge, Spider-Man realizes just how important having a team is, and finally, the rest of the SHIELD team moves in with Peter. Whew.]]

* "Helga on the Couch" from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''. Helga gets sent to a child psychologist, where the truth comes out about why she acts the way she does...it involves inattentive parents, and a sister whose standards she'd never be able to reach in her parents' eyes.

* In the third season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', the former [[TheWoobie Woobie]], Barry, is now a cyborg, and plots an elaborate revenge against [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist Sterling Archer.]] It's all pretty funny, until [[MoralEventHorizon Barry cruelly murders the man who may or may not be Sterling's father, right after they were reunited, and disposes of the body so he'll never be able to do a DNA test and know for sure.]]

* [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb Where's Perry? Part 1]] ends with Phineas, Ferb, and their friends falling down a deep gorge, Jeremy apparently breaking up with Candace, [[spoiler:Perry, and this is the clincher, suddenly vanishing after being hit by several inators at the same time]] and [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking Linda and Lawrence without dinner reservations]], all of which are thankfully resolved by part 2.

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' has "Rick Potion #9" in which [[spoiler:Rick and Morty accidentally unleash a BodyHorror virus infecting all of Earth and wrecking it beyond repair, then they escape to an alternate universe where they suffered a brutal death very shortly after fixing their version of the problem. They then bury their alternate counterparts, and seamlessly replace them. Morty suffers a huge HeroicBSOD because of this]].

* ''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.

* 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.
