** "Babs Seed" is an upbeat, happy song, but it is about how the Cutie Mark Crusaders are being bullied.

** The ending theme, ''Love Like You'', is a sweet little lullaby-like piano tune, and the full lyrical version is sung sweetly enough that you could hear it as just a nice, relaxing song. Except that the lyrics are actually the singer lamenting about what a terrible person they are compared to the person they're singing to:

Made worse when Rebecca Sugar later revealed that end theme can be read as ''herself'' having a series of epiphanies:

* In ''WesternAnimation/The7D'' episode "Buckets", Happy sings Grumpy a bedtime tune not knowing that he's joined by a ghost girl that only Grumpy notices. Her lyrics are comparatively grim and paint her as a NightmareFuelStationAttendant:
-->'''Happy:''' Let pretty pictures fill your head,\\
'''Ghost Girl:''' Like gargoyles lurking beneath your bed,\\
'''Happy:''' See peaceful visions in your sleep,\\
'''Ghost Girl:''' Like howling, red-eyed zombie sheep,\\
'''Happy:''' You drift away to the land of dreams,\\
'''Ghost Girl:''' Where nobody can hear your screams... ''(get an appropriately creepy close-up)''

* ''WesternAnimation/BigMouth'': Milks this for all the laughs it can. The WhamEpisode "I Survived Jessi's Bat Mitzvah" has the upbeat electric slide "Life is a Fucked Up Mess" in which all character laments their current troubles (which include [[spoiler:Andrew and Missy's break up as well as Jessi's mother having cheated on her father]]) while happily dancing. As soon as the song ends, everyone is awkward and sad again.

** The song she and The Ice King sing together in "I Remember You". Although it spawned from a letter The Ice King wrote to her as he started forgetting her, his love of peppy drums made it sound a lot more upbeat.
--> "This magic keeps me alive / But it's making me crazy / And I need to save you / But who's gonna save me? / Please forgive me for whatever I do / When I don't remember you."

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': When Gumball and Darwin ask the universe what is the meaning of life, the planets decide to sing an upbeat and cheerful song about how people's lives don't matter and everyone is useless, which lasts for millions of earth years. [[spoiler:Ironically, one season later, the planets participate in another song, where they sing nobody's a nobody.]]

* The cheerful-sounding theme song of ''WesternAnimation/TheBluffers'' is basically just calling you names. The full version of the song that plays during the show's end credits subverts this - about midway through, it turns into a motivational song that tells you to be tougher and never give up.
