* When used in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Puffy AmiYumi's "Shiawase" ("Happiness") sounds like a bouncy, lively song. The lyrics, however, when translated to English, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dkdd91R9dBo don't seem quite so innocent.]]

** In "My Fair Hatey", Lord Dominator's VillainSong "I'm the Bad Guy" combines a bouncy tune with cheerful vocals about how Lord Dominator [[CardCarryingVillain loves to cause wanton mayhem and destruction and crush people's hopes]].
-->''Oh, it's magic\\

-->''Oh, it's magic\\
To watch a planet\\
Shrivel up and die!\\
\\
Oh, ain't it thrillin'\\
To be a villain\\
I destroy their homes\\
And then I watch them cry!\\
'Cause I'm the bad guy!''

Here's your happy birthday song\\
And your birthday best be happy\\
'Cause you won't be around for long!\\
'''Sylvia:''' So try not to be so sad\\
About your impending doom\\
Someday we'll light birthday candles\\
On your frigid tomb!

* "Remember" from ''WesternAnimaton/DannyPhantom''. Sam even scoffs it as a mindless pop song. It is a depressing song about how a girl was abandoned by a boy. It gets even worse when it turns out it's about Ember's ''death''. {{Fanon}} largely took it as a song about Ember committing suicide however WordOfGod says it isn't quite that dark, though not by much. Ember was an unpopular girl who was asked out by a boy who never came to the date. She was too exhausted to wake up when a fire broke out and died. Suddenly Ember's [[AttentionWhore need to be remembered]] and breakdown when her PopularityPower fails is [[HarsherInHindsight dramatically less amusing]].

** The song "Do it for Him/Her" from the episode Sworn to the Sword also fits this trope. The song starts as a really nice piano piece about how to fence. It quickly develops into a nice piano piece about how [[DeliberateValuesDissonance worthless you are and how]] [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop you should die defending the person you love, because (s)he's the only one who gives a meaning to your life.]]

** In the episode "The Death Camp of Tolerance," a gerbil named Lemmiwinks is forced to [[OrificeInvasion crawl up Mr. Slave's ass]], and he (Lemmiwinks) must traverse Mr. Slave's entire digestive system and [[OrificeEvacuation crawl out the mouth]] or else he will die. Amusingly, this entire disgusting sequence is described in a song with a merry, adventure-y tune.
