* EsotericHappyEnding: A textbook example. Anderson insisted that the Girl ascending to Heaven was a happy ending, ignoring the fact that a girl just froze to death for no good reason.

* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: To quote from that page, "the narrative does not so much carry this trope as flamboyantly juggle it while singing the complete score to Handel's Messiah." Part of the reason most versions of the story are called "Tragedy Porn".

Just a reminder; it's considered by its fans to be one of the saddest stories ever written (to the point its detractors call it "Tragedy Porn"). The chances of it making you cry is somewhere above 90%.

The full English translation can be found [[http://www.andersen.sdu.dk/vaerk/hersholt/TheLittleMatchGirl_e.html here]], and the Disney short can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTE7CVCuMz0 here]]. Additionally, there was a French silent film that can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/barrocum#p/u/41/WA7pdVMeazo here]]. The adaptation differs from the original, though. It has also been adapted as an audiobook with slideshow [[VisualNovel/HoukagoNoKamishibaibu here]].

** Strangely enough it happens in Literature/{{Discworld}} (Along with a TakeThat), where Death, standing in for the Hogfather (Discworld's equivalent to Santa Claus) finds the the dead little match girl. His assistant explains that dying is sort of her purpose, [[TakeThat makes people feel better about not having it as bad as she does]]. Death doesn't buy it and revives the girl - despite the fact that it's against Death's own rules. Death cannot bring back the dead.
--> '''Death''': [[AC:The Hogfather can. The Hogfather gives presents. There's no better present than [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming a future.]]]]

** A rather dark aversion came along with Creator/ChristopherNielsen when he related the story of the female drug addict Audrey, replacing the matches with heroin shots. Every hallucination (the christmas tree, the dinner and finally the grandmother) was drug-induced, and the final "match" was an overdose.
