** Though the lyrics do get more serious in the second verse and even more so in the last verse, averting this trope.

* The ending theme of ''Straight Title Robot Anime'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EB3NjhqxYGM Reason for Freedom]], is a rare example that's PlayedForLaughs. The melody is gentle and slightly melancholic, something you'd expect from a robot anime... But the lyrics are about how the singer (who's apparently also the writer and the composer) didn't get any reference materials, was told to improvise, and then just said "screw it" and wrote whatever the hell came to mind.
-->Even though I was told to write "a song that feels good"
-->I didn't get the reference materials
-->Even though I was told "please improvise freely"
-->It's just way too difficult
-->Ah, it's the chorus already. I have to do it now
-->Robot, robot, peace is really great...like that?
-->Robot, robot, *lots of SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud*... like that?
-->There's nothing to say, what do I do?
-->Will somebody help me...

** In Gundam SEED Destiny, we also have Fields of Hope, song by Lacus Clyne, while some ZAFT-pilots are busy executing a Colony Drop, while the rest of ZAFT's forces are trying to prevent it.
** Gundam 00 has Tomorrow, a very beautiful song by Ayumi Tsunematsu, who voices Marina Ismail, who in turn is shown to write and sing the song, along with some kids. Both in episode 14 and in the final battle between Exia and 0 Gundam, piloted by Setsuna and Ribbons respectively, the song plays in the background. Episode 14 even uses it as its ending, while Setsuna and Ali fight. Both times, it also makes the battles that much more awesome, thus turning them into Crowning Moments of Awesome Heartwarming.
*** That's true. Just try watching the final battle between Exia and 0 Gundam without sound, and then with sound, and you will notice that it becomes a hundred times more epic with Tomorrow playing. The sound effects don't even make that much of an impact, considering that most viewers can make the sound effects in their heads.
*** Not to mention the fact that it even plays on the radio in 2314, while the ELS are busy attacking the Earth Sphere Federation.

* 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.]] And all of this deep commentary and lyrics based around giving up and '[[DrivenToSuicide leave(ing) forever]]' are set to a bright and upbeat piece played with a grand piano, an acoustic guitar, and a percussive organ. The song begins to sound [[SanitySlippageSong insidiously convoluted near the end]], like an LSD trip or an exorcism...or both, culminating in the voices of thousands of people.
** The worst part is, perhaps, that it's such a SuspiciouslySimilarSong to "Hey Jude" by Music/TheBeatles, but the lyrics sound more like "Crawling" by Music/LinkinPark.

* ''LightNovel/R-15'' has one eyebrow-raising song: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KLPuRnsR84 Kannou no Eden]] with majestic melody and LEWD (as in erotic) lyrics. Expected though, as the canonic lyricist is young porn writer.
