* The song [[http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/hunterxhunter/inori.htm "Inori"]] ("prayer"), a character song from ''HunterXHunter'', sounds cheerful and even triumphant...but if you read the translation of the lyrics--well, it ''starts'' with "A smile stolen from the eyes I watched / That distant night when blood was shed...". And the refrain's mention of "bringing home the flame-colored eyes" is a lot [[{{Squick}} squickier]] if you know from the anime that [[spoiler: said eyes are [[BodyHorror entirely literal.]]]] Oh, and the the prayer from the the title? That he'd never stop being angry.

* The iconic opening to ''[[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar FistOfTheNorthStar]]'', ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-POzIrRh0c Ai Wo Torimodose]]'', is often seen by many to be a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, and rightfully so. The music behind it is reported by many to make anyone feel better about themselves and also feel courageous. A closer look into the lyrics reveals that it is actually a ''love song''! When translated into English, ''Ai Wo Torimodose'' comes out as "Bring back my love!".

***The first of these two is actually a traditional Japanese song that is often sung by children to the year above them when they graduate or move to the next level of education. The irony in this is that while this song is playing, Shinji is unable to stop Unit-01 from nearly ''murdering his best friend'', [[spoiler:Asuka]].

* The lyrics formerly in the trope entry are a real song: "Komm, süsser Tod" (in German, "Come, Sweet Death"), from the ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' soundtrack. And yes, it's every bit as disturbing as you'd think -- appropriate, given the series, and when the song is played: [[spoiler: during the Third Impact[=/=]Instrumentality sequence in ''Evangelion.'']] Doubly ironic, the film synchs the line, "my world is ending" with [[spoiler: apocalyptic imagery of the TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, in the literal sense of the words.]] At least the song begins to sound [[SanitySlippageSong insidiously convoluted near the end]], like an LSD trip or an exorcism...or both.

The song begins to sound [[SanitySlippageSong insidiously convoluted near the end]], like an LSD trip or an exorcism...or both.

** Ironically, this piece would later play in the background of one of the Rebuild movies during the [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds ''Near''-Third Impact as the characters work together to avert the situation which happened in EoE]], creating a severe case of MoodWhiplash in which you have to try and ignore the lyrics of the song in favour of watching the heroism of the cast in averting a catastrophe.

** Sailor Jupiter's ImageSong from ''Anime/SailorMoon R'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD5CBrOwkq0 is pretty catchy]] and sounds like another fun song on the soundtrack. [[http://sailormusic.net/lyrics/Wasureru_tame.html Check out the lyrics.]]

* The theme song for Anime/TenchiMuyo! (TenchiUniverse to some) is a happy, hoppy, techno song about how someone (presumably Tenchi himself) isn't quite ready for love. The English version of the song even starts with the words "Get ready/love will leave you crying". The song ends with the lyrics, "You're a broken man, poor you". The ending theme for the show is also similar in that it's a high-energy rock song that ends up being a big "screw you" to either Ayeka or Ryoko (depending on the episode, it switched every other one). The English lyrics start with "When you go fishing/You catch a boot/or some other trash/When you play at cards/you lose all your cash/you're so pathetic/you never win/and you never will/not the kind of girl/who'd make any guy/feel a thrill".

* The ending of ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' called ''Absolute Beauty'' is about lover's suicide -- set to a catchy tune with jazz-like instrumentals. This is pretty much a requirement for a song from this series - one of the ending songs in ''Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei" is a very dark song about the "despair restaurant" with a strong implication that it doubles as a brothel!

* Kallen Stadtfeld/Kouzuki's post-''Anime/CodeGeass'' ImageSong [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDXON8jAfcI One More Chance]] is an extremely catchy and upbeat pop song, but the fairly straightforward lyrics seem to be directed to Lelouch, [[BodyguardCrush whom she had loved]], thanking him for his love and [[spoiler:promising live on, as he had wanted her to, ''and'' to "live [his] share of life too'']].
