* ''Anime/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'': '''Oh boy.''' The manga started with a light hearted, optimistic plot, and despite a bit of drama, it was quite happy. But then arrived The Magnostadt Arc. And everything after it, to be honest. Alma Torran takes the cake, by showing just how much crueler this manga came to be. [[spoiler:David's slaugher, Tess' death and Aladdin's parents, the soldiers Hakuryuu is manipulating...the list goes on.]] To this, you can add [[spoiler:Hakuryuu's FaceHeelTurn]], and the manga's themes became darker, or at least more serious than they used to be. At that point, there are more manipulation, murder, and mayhem than one would have expected when reading the summary.

** After the wacky ''Anime/JewelpetKiraDeco''& very lighthearted ''Anime/JewelpetHappiness'', come the sixth season, Anime/LadyJewelpet, which can be considered as darkest season of all, with mature themes such as betrayal and lies become integral part of the plot. Starting relatively lighthearted where chosen girls study and doing tasks together in an academy, the series goes progressively darker once one of the main character dark secrets were ''hinted on'', eventually culminating in a plot where [[spoiler:resident EldritchAbomination kicks in and hell bent on turning Jewelland InTheirOwnImage (into a place with nothing but suffering and despair)]]. On top of that, this season has more violent scenes (by ''Jewelpet'' standard) than any other seasons, and so far the only one where a plot important character was KilledOffForReal, ''onscreen''. [[spoiler:(the character in question was given chance to BackFromTheDead though, but she refused the offer)]].

* ''Franchise/CellsAtWork'' is a very cute {{Edutainment}} {{Shounen}} about a load of quirky characters who fight germs in the body of a young, healthy human. Its spinoff, ''Franchise/CellsAtWork BLACK'', is a {{Seinen}} set in the body of a man in late middle age who abuses alcohol and cigarettes to deal with his stress and gets infections from unprotected sex. It incorporates a much higher body count, a bleak, war-themed setting, and the threats are more horror themed (carbon monoxide inhalation causes a ZombieApocalypse, the [=STDs=] are portrayed as NaughtyTentacles, and autoimmune alopecia is portrayed as a fascist uprising).

* The ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' anime got in these grounds starting with ''Anime/YokaiWatchShadowsideTheReturnOfTheOniKing'', while still keeping its signature humour. In the film, Yo-kai now have two less cartoony forms, one being the new regular form (Lightside), and other more monstrous and suited for combat (Shadowside). As well as being more serious in tone (and less cartoony in art style) compared to the previous films and the anime, as the plot is set after a 30-year timeskip (featuring Nate's Daughter as one of the main characters, who is older than Nate when his story started), and [[spoiler:the menace this time is a virus that infects humans and turns them into Oni-esque beings.]]. The anime series which serves as a sequel (''Anime/YokaiWatchShadowside''), though LighterAndSofter than the film (and still having some zaniness true to the franchise), retains some seriousness (and has scarier characters) and is more plot driven and features full-length episodes, unlike the first anime (which was more episodical and with two-to-four segments per episode). ''Yo-kai Watch 4'', announced for the Nintendo Switch, will feature these characters, to boot, to round the Shadowside project.

* The first anime of ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' was, in addition to being 50% GeckoEnding, notably more pessimistic, morally grey and low-key than [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist the manga]]. Most of the characters' stories ended notably darker, the QuirkyMinibossSquad is far more sadistic, evil, and deadly than in previous iterations, and had a much darker origin [[spoiler:as failed and abandoned human transmutations performed by several different alchemists]], and instead of impressive alchemical fight scenes like in ''Brotherhood'' most battles were brutal, short, and often weighed towards the villains.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Manga/GeGeGeNoKitaro GeGeGe No Kitaro (2018)]]'': The series is more focused towards the grim side of the scale. There's a stronger focus on utilizing horror and darker aspects that previous incarnations did not use before, such as Kitaro being an AntiHero who shows no mercy towards evil humans and yokai, he's also willing to send the spirit of a sinful man to Hell. Yokai that were in previous adaptations are presented as more threatening and dangerous, with one of them electrocuting a woman to death, and several unleashing an EldritchAbomination that destroys a majority of Tokyo.

** ''Anime/PokemonIChooseYou'' isn't "dark" per say, but it makes elements from the original series it reimagines a more emotional roller coaster. Not only does it feature one of the most power-hungry rivals in the franchise, the human companions of Ash both have tragic pasts. [[spoiler: Verity is estranged from her mother, who is implied to be Sinnoh Champion Cynthia, and Sorrel once had a Luxray that froze to death trying to keep him warm in a blizzard.]] The film also has much more intense battle scenes and a tear-jerking, more character-focused story; and it doesn't forget that the main characters are just 10-year-old kids dealing with issues that are quite dramatic for their age. [[spoiler: The final battle also involves an army of BrainwashedAndCrazy Pokémon, and Ash narrowly saves Pikachu by getting him into his Poké Ball before he's disintegrated in a HeroicSacrifice; only being brought back from Ho-Oh granting him eternal happiness as the Rainbow Hero.]]

* ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' was originally a very light-hearted and fluffy show about a group of young, superpowered girls serving their part of justice in the city. Then came ''A Certain Scientific Railgun S''. The series had one of the most abrupt turns in anime. What happened to the cutesy, cheery Railgun? We're now introduced to Accelerator, a sadist who takes pride in killing the thousands of "sisters" or clones of Misaka Mikoto, whom Misaka intends on defending with all her wits. It even becomes BloodierAndGorier and more emotional as it progresses.
** Though in all honesty it only comes across like this [[{{Disneyfication}} in the anime]]. In the original manga the series is pretty consistently nihilistic and depressing.
