* ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFiendshipIsMagic'' explored the backstories of many of [[VileVillainSaccharineShow the show's villains]], making them nastier in the process. King Sombra's involves him realising he is an [[HumanoidAbomination Equinoid Abomination]] and deciding ThenLetMeBeEvil and inflicting a horrible AndIMustScream fate on a benevolent queen, and Tirek's involves kidnap and torture. (The origin of Chrysalis and the Changelings may be the worst, being essentially a fusion of insects and pony ''corpses''. Also, those swiss cheese-like holes in their bodies on the show? Those are ''scars'' from when Celestia blasted them with magic hundreds of years ago.

** Next to Amethyst, Pearl was the crystal gem who had the worst life in the series, one out of ''many'' examples is fighting a millennia lasting war that scarred all the crystal gems (except amethyst who wasn't able to participate) for life.

** Next to Amethyst, Pearl And Pearl's was just as sad, if not sadder. She didn't have any friends and was looked down upon by everyone except for Rose Quartz, who was the crystal gem who key to her positive attitude, and had the worst life in the series, one out of ''many'' examples is fighting a millennia lasting war that scarred all the crystal gems (except amethyst who wasn't able to participate) for life.see her die before her very eyes.

** And speaking of Amethyst, she herself had this as well, as she was left stranded and alone for a while after the GreatOffscreenWar ended until Rose found her.

* "Black 2 and White 2" has a an abandoned house at the outskirts of Lentimas Town at the base of Reversal Mountain called Strange House. In this house you'll find a ghost, who rearranges the furniture, and eventually gives you the Lunar Wing. This ghost also appears in "Black and White" at the Marvelous Bridge. An old woman explain in "Black and White" that she used to play with her Abra on the bridge. In "Black 2 and White 2" you can directly interact with the ghost girl, before she gives you the Lunar Wing and disappears. Her dialogue implies that she was caught in nightmares by Darkrai, her parents tried to help her using Cresselia's Lunar Wing, but it didn't work. She eventually died, and her family and Abra may have died as well, though no evidence of that is provided. She was on the Marvelous Bridge to return the Lunar Wing, and if you have a Lunar Wing with you in "Black and White", you actually do encounter Cresselia. Other human ghosts have appeared in Pokemon, with a butler ghost and a little girl ghost in the Old Chateau in Gen 4. It's not said what killed them, but a notebook in "Platinum" has odd writing in it, most likely referring to Rotom.

* ''Film/{{Coraline}}'' has one that doubles as a GeniusBonus: the medal worn by [[FunnyForeigner The Great Bobinski]] is a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_liquidators Liquidator's Medal,]] which was given to the clean-up crew of the ''Chernobyl Disaster''. Many of these people[[note]]Exact numbers and statistics are unknown due to the dissolution of the Soviet Union[[/note]] were left dead or permanently disabled from exposure to radiation, which casts Bobinski's blue skin, odd figure, and eccentricities in a ''much'' different light.

* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' is no stranger to SurpriseCreepy, but usually keeps things saccharine regardless of the nasty things that have happened in the setting's past.
** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends'' includes the Twinkle-Eyed Ponies, ponies with gems for eyes. Their eyes were almost never mentioned in the show, and were mostly there as an interesting visual and [[MerchandiseDriven to sell the Twinkle-Eyed Pony toy line]]. The [[ComicBook/MyLittlePony comics]] associated with the franchise stated that the Twinkle-Eyed Ponies got their gem eyes because they were enslaved in a gem mine by an evil wizard, where they toiled in the dark for so long that their eyes atrophied. When the wizard was defeated by Applejack smashing his gem throne, the gems of his throne were [[EyeScream embedded into the ponies' eye sockets]], enabling them to see again.
** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has shown that the ponies have been on the brink of extinction on numerous occasions. Equestria only exists in the first place because a horde of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s that [[EmotionEater feed on hatred]] devastated the ponies' original home, and almost froze their new home after they followed the ponies. Then [[GodOfEvil Discord]] arrived to cause an [[TheDarkTimes "eternal state of unrest and unhappiness"]], which only stopped when [[GodEmperor the princesses]] arrived to lay the smack down. ''Then'' one of said princesses [[MadGod went mad]] [[GreenEyedMonster with jealousy]] and almost froze Equestria ''again'' by trying to enact TheNightThatNeverEnds. Most of this is used to show how ThePowerOfFriendship can triumph over anything, but it's rather jarring to consider how many potential apocalypses the ponies have narrowly avoided.

** This series gets a double-dose of this in the Season 5 Finale, particularly in the Sombra Takeover timeline where it implies some serious crap has gone down in the span between Sombra's awakening and Twilight's arrival in the new "present". Firstly we only see Princess Celestia in this timeline, and considering that Princess Cadance and Shining Armor were in the now conquered Crystal Empire when Sombra escaped it's likely they (and possibly Princess Luna as well) have all been killed. Another blink-and-you'll-miss-it flashback when Applejack is describing the war effort shows a filly amongst the lineup of ponies [[https://derpiboo.ru/1032048 going to fight in the war]].
