* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' fans find it a bit suspect that in the S4 finale, [[spoiler:Aisha had apparently made peace with the death of [[ArrangedMarriage her intended]] in about a day]], though season 5 shows that she hasn't entirely gotten over it.

*** Aeris's death was a very dark event for video games at the time and is still unusual in that it focuses on loss and emptiness rather than HeroicSacrifice. As Cloud points out, he nearly killed her himself and would have done if his party members hadn't distracted him at the critical moment. The party continue on their journey North, [[MoodWhiplash where they go to a town full of cute snowmen and children in bobble hats, have a slapsticky fight with Elena and travel to the next dungeon by doing a comedic obstacle course on a rainbow-coloured snowboard]].

The characters don't actually comment about Aeris or mourn for her at all until the party runs out of obvious things to do, leading Cloud to start wondering about what Aeris's plan had been.

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': Tedís kids in the series finale [[spoiler:when they figured it out that the whole premise is their dadís way of asking permission to date Robin again after their titular mother died six years ago prior to Ted telling the story. While it should be noted that the scene was filmed back in 2006 and realistically people had enough time to recover and move on in six years, the way the episode and scenes were put together made it look like that kids wanted their dad to date Robin again and donít care about their dead mom which doesnít help that the opening scene of the show has them groaning "Are we being punished or something?" and rolling their eyes]].

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Red XIII is introduced as one of Hojo's research specimens, and was being experimented on for use in breeding experiments. It's unclear how long he has been a specimen for, but it's suggested it's for years. Other party members subjected to Hojo's experimentation (Vincent and Cloud) were deeply traumatised by it. The moodiest Red XIII gets about it is a brief {{Fauxshadowing}} scene where he mentions to Tifa that he's worried he'll start to go mad like the Clones, and Tifa tells him to be strong - other than that, he's more concerned with his own [[ADarkerMe dorky persona issues]] than the horrific body horror in his history. This may be the result of how a lot of Red XIII's planned material was cut. It might also be a character choice, as upon witnessing his grandfather's death, Red XIII responds with giggling denial.

** When Kotaku reviewed ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'', they actually criticised it for having a traumatic setup where a young man's father gets murdered, and then straight away turning into a goofy road trip between a group of guys messing around and making terrible puns.

* The eponymous heroine of a Danish film "Katja and the falcon" is a 10 years old Danish girl who gets stranded in Rome with no money, no acquaintances, and no knowledge of Italian language. She never reminiscences on her predicament, instead quickly bonding with a bunch of local kids and concentrating on freeing the titular falcon.

* Vernita's daughter from ''Film/KillBill'' doesn't looked upset [[spoiler: that her mother was murdered right in front of her.]] Though it might be because she's just too shocked to react.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail: Fievel Goes West'', Fievel's parents really don't seem sad or concerned enough when Fievel falls off the train on their [[CrowdSong "way out west",]] leaving him stranded in the middle of the desert and possibly gravely injured. When they get to the town of Green River they're more concerned about where they're going to be living than the whereabouts of their son, saying "He'll find his way here on his own". And when Fievel finally is reunited with them, they're happy, but they don't make a big deal out of it. It's like "Oh, Fievel's lost. It must be Tuesday again." This is probably because [[ExecutiveMeddling executives]] wanted ''Fievel Goes West'' to be LighterAndSofter than the first movie, which had more than enough angst to go around after Fievel got lost.

* Music/ModestMouse's "Float On" is the musical epitome of this trope. ("A fake Jamacian took every last dime with a scam/It was worth it just to learn some slight-of-hand/Bad news is coming don't you worry cuz when it lands/Good news will work its way to all them plans") The whole reason the song even ''exists'' is because frontman Isaac Brock wanted to take a break from writing depressing, angsty music.
