** It also explores the psychological implications of what Riddle's Diary did to Ginny, with it being explicitly compared to grooming by a paedophile, as well as an all but explicit statement that what Riddle tried to do to her was equivalent to rape and murder, only narrowly failing in the latter part.

** Then when the ''[[AllThereInTheManual Hyrule Historia]]'' artbook was released, it confirmed that a ''third'' timeline existed that fans rarely acknowledged; if Link failed and died. This led to the "degradation of Hyrule" timeline that follows Hyrule after Ganondorf reaches and corrupts the Sacred Realm. This timeline where TheHeroDies spans several millennia as things go from bad (''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast Link to the Past's]]'' WorldHalfFull) to worst (''Zelda I and II'', where society was seven mildly populated towns among a massive barren wasteland of monsters).

* In ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' Meg is quite dark example of a ButtMonkey, being horribly abused by her parents and is always played for BlackComedy. The episode "Seahorse Seashell Party" deconstructs the abuse as a serious issue, turning her into TheWoobie. Even Meg mentions that "If people in the outside ever saw how Peter treats her, he would've been put in jail along time ago." One would think Meg finally catches a break as her family breaks down in tears from the revelation, but Meg later realizes that the reason her family treats her like shit is because they need someone to expel all their negative energy into and without Meg for that, they would turn on each other. Meg decides to apologize for what she said and lets her family abuse her again for the sake of keeping everyone slightly sane. Some fans may see this as a cheap in-universe reason for why Meg is abused in nearly every episode, giving the FamilyUnfriendlyAesop that abused people should continue to be abused if it keeps their abusers happy.
** Ironically the episode after that one involves domestic abuse and it's definitely not played for laughs!

* In ComicBook/TheAvengers #200, ComicBook/MsMarvel was kidnapped by a character named Marcus the apparent son of Avengers foe Immortus and taken to an alternate dimension, where she was brainwashed, seduced, and impregnated. The character gives birth back on Earth to a child that rapidly ages into another version of Marcus, who takes Ms. Marvel back to the alternate dimension with no opposition from the Avengers. The whole storyline felt in bad taste to a number of people, especially Creator/ChrisClaremont. He wrote an Avengers-X-Men crossover, where Ms. Marvel would escape to Earth, be un-brainwashed with the help of Professor X, then let the rest of the Avengers have it for so callously dismissing what was tantamount to an extradimensional rape.
* In ''Comicbook/SpiderManReign'' Mary Jane was said to have died of leukemia developed because of her continued exposure to her radioactive husband's sperm.

* One piece of fridge horror (which also counts as a PlotHole) that is often glossed over in the original ''[[Fanfic/TheConversionBureau Conversion Bureau]]'' story (and its [[RecursiveFanfiction spin-offs]]) is the question of [[NoEndorHolocaust what happens to the rest of Equus]] without Princesses Celestia and Luna around to move the sun and moon. ''Fanfic/{{The Negotiations-verse}}'' does not mince any words as to just how horrifying the [[ApocalypseHow potential consequences]] would be.

*** Similarly, the first part of the season opener addresses Celestia's feelings about the Summer Sun Celebration, with Celestia confirming to Twilight that to her, the Celebration was for a thousand years little more than a bitter reminder of the banishment mentioned above, with Celestia [[StepfordSmiler putting on a brave face for her subjects while hiding her inner pain]], and that she's happy that it can now be a reminder of their reunion.
** When "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E20ItsAboutTime It's About Time]]" introduced the realm of Tartarus, where various monsters and villains were sealed away, many people feared that someone may have been able to escape it while Cerberus was away from his post in that episode. The Tartarus plotpoint was even used in the "Feelin' Pinkie Keen" arc of webcomic ''Webcomic/FriendshipIsDragons'', complete with escaped prisoner, though it was a non-canon creature.

* ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'' has Foop, who, from the start of his introduction episode, had a ThereCanOnlyBeOne mindset with regards to Poof. However, it has been hinted that fairies and their anti-fairy counterparts are connected and anti-fairies rely on their counterparts to exist, leaving many to wonder what would happen to Foop if he ever succeeded in eliminating Poof. The answer comes around in "Timmy's Secret Wish" when Foop manages to get Timmy branded as the worst Godkid to exist and have all his wishes erased, including Poof. In the middle of celebrating his success, Jorgen tells Foop that as Poof's Anti-Fairy, [[PyrrhicVillainy his existence is erased as well]]. [[ResetButton Following being restored]], [[DiminishingVillainThreat Foop went from seeking Poof's destruction to being]] TheRival, since he realized that killing Poof would kill himself.
