* TheSmiths' "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" describes the narrator suffering terrible injuries and getting sent to the hospital. [[BlackComedy Somehow it manages to be very funny anyway.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/NightmareHour'': How the clown and audience respond to Christopher in "Afraid of Clowns", as well as any other previous victims, thinking it is an act (the audience only) but all the while very droll, but of course, not to the victim, and of course, it is not just an act.

Added DiffLines:

* During the TrainingMontage of "I'll Make a Man Out of You" in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', Yao gets his buttock pierced by a burning arrow, which is played for laughs. This is particularly notable since Mulan's stomach wound later is not only played for drama, but also a major plot point.

* During the final months of his time as president of the United States, TheOnion ran several news blurbs about George W. Bush suffering increasingly improbable injuries, such as having his eyelid nailed to a wall, being attacked by a crocodile, and being hit by a crashing plane. All ending with him recovering comfortably at Bethesda Naval Hospital.

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* A standard ''ComicStrip/BeetleBailey'' gag has Sergeant Snorkel pound the daylights out of Beetle as a punishment for laziness or insubordination, whereupon Beetle ends up as a shapeless mass of limbs, hands and feet twisted in anatomically impossible ways. And with missing teeth. Sometimes such or other injuries in the comic are "unamusing" enough to end in a hospital trip, but only if a joke requires it.
* Similarly, in ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' Jason would often be beaten up by his sister Paige, ending up with some bruises and broken glasses.
* This trope is par for the course in many classic comic strips, which (being static and somewhat trite) would arguably be less funny for lack of them. You could probably make a DrinkingGame out of all the times [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes Calvin opened the door and announced "I'M HO-OME!"]] only for Hobbes to tackle him and roll around with him in a BigBallOfViolence until Calvin was thoroughly bruised and [[ClothingDamage his clothes were partially shredded]]. Didn't happen so much in ''{{Peanuts}}'' (as Charles Schulz preferred to dish out ''psychological'' pain to his characters), but occasionally someone [[ButtMonkey (usually Linus)]] would get knocked on his ass by a punch and have cartoon "whirlies" orbiting around his head.
[[/folder]]



* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'' is based on ''My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic'', which had plenty of amusing injuries to begin with. ''UFP'' manages to escalate this in the episode "Ponynet Fight!": Twilight Sparkle gets a flowerpot, an anvil, a cart full of hay bales, and a piano dropped on her head. Upon regaining consciousness, she declares, "Look really I didn't the brain damage!" Seconds later, she returns to full lucidity.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Epic}}'' Ozzie bumps into things constantly on account of his lacking depth perception and reduced mobility.

* In HarryPartridge's Twitter cartoon, he threatens to do terrible things to a Cockney orphan. The orphan's response?
--> '''Orphan''': Don't worry about me, folks! I'm animated!
** Somewhat subverted, however...
--> '''Harry (complete with [[EyeScream eyes sewn shut]])''': But the pain will be more than real...
* ''DSBTInsaniT'' sometimes uses this trope, such as Whitney crashing into a tree on her JetPack or Frog hitting a rock while surfboarding.

* ''BananaNanaNinja'': [[MeaningfulName Seppuku]] is impaled or otherwise exposed to hilarious harm in almost every episode he appears in. In the accompanying game ''Dueling Ninjas'', every loss scenario for Seppuku involves him being impaled (except for one, where he chokes on [[OldMaster Master Fuji's]] chopstick).
