It becomes more like Power Rangers, but both Bloodier and Gorier and Hotter and Sexier, so much that it falls into the Girl-Show Ghetto.

[up][up][up] Her newly gained web shooting techniques get fetishised in-and-out universe to the point no one takes her seriously. She's now basically Spiderman but Hotter and Sexier.

[up][up] It's basically a Darker and Edgier version of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, except everyone's face looks so uncanny to the point most people would mistake the show as a horror film.

This Kirby game is much Darker and Edgier, almost to the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam-level of Kill 'Em All (which is saying a lot, since Zeta was infamous for mass murdering its characters, especially since the trope namer Yoshiyuki Tomino was responsible for it).

EarthBound, but it's turned into a movie duology directed by James Cameron and Quentin Tarantino, respectively.

[down] Hazzy, as a fan of them both and as an EB fan, I take serious offense to that one. Also, I said a movie duology, aka a two-parter film. NOT a TV series. That's much better. Though I presume you don't really like Tarantino, judging from that.

[up] Just updated the whole thing.

The first part of the movie, written by James Cameron, appears to be a standard high-budget alien invasion film until the tragic backstory of Giegue is revealed, then the story shifts to a surprisingly heartwarming story about four kids trying to stop an all-out war by preaching love and compassion, culminating at them singing a lullaby to Giegue, and the story ends with Giegue casting his hatred toward humanity aside. The props are highly detailed and the effects of the PSI attacks are fantastic, even surpassing Avatar.

The second part of the movie duology, almost fully written by Quentin Tarantino, goes downhill however, as the new Chosen Four are now generic edgy teens, all the funny cartoonish elements are gone, Moonside is now a generic city filled with neon lights and Giygas is rewritten as a Generic Doomsday Villain with too much emphasis on the Lovecraftian elements and all of his sympathetic qualities are thrown away. The second part is so generic and boring to the point many people refuse to watch it, declaring that it doesn't exist.

Fallout, except the story is now set in post-apocalyptic China.

The film quickly devolves into a hyper-Narm'y erotica about burly men slapping each other with oily fish. Needless to say, it attracts a new group of audiences with fish fetishes.

It's similar to the original but much darker in tone- it's established that the western setting is all that remains after an apocalypse. It's very much a Mature Animal Story, which healthy amounts of What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?. Still, it has a cult following.

The Flash (2014), but instead of Caitlin/Killer Frost being a Jekyll & Hyde/ Superpowered Evil Side deal, Caitlin's a magical girl.
