* Some humor in ''WebAnimation/GEOWeasel'' is derived from the combination of Weas's goal of world domination and the {{zany antics}} of his crew, such as when he carries weapons and a copy of Nickelodeon Magazine in the same bag.

* Creator/TimBurton loves to juxtapose the camp and creepy with the heartfelt and humorous throughout his career. One of the best examples comes in ''Film/BatmanReturn'', where following an ''exceptionally'' goofy fight scene between Batman and the Penguin, we get [[spoiler: the deformed villain's death scene.]] On paper, the scene in question ([[spoiler: Creator/DannyDevito using his dying words to ask for a glass of ice water, and then being given a viking funeral by ''[[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins penguins]]'') sounds like a [[{{Narm}} total joke]], but it's actually [[NarmCharm rather moving.]]

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has this all over the place. Based on comments made by [[WordOfGod the creators]] in audio commentaries and interviews, the creative staff had a ton of fun juxtaposing both the comedic and the serious, even during the same episode, plus generally bullying [[CosmicPlaything Lelouch]].

** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' uses this during its shocking reveal. [[spoiler:Peter has just discovered that Ego murdered his mother, and without a moment's hesitation, whips out his guns and shoots Ego to pieces. Ego instantly reforms himself and begins yelling at Peter for wanting to ruin his evil plan. It's both tragic and scary... except for the fact that for the first few seconds after Ego regenerates, he's played by Creator/DavidHasselhoff.]]

** For another example: Enies Lobby is about Robin's past catching up with her, causing her to succumb to guilt and lose her will to live, while the rest of the Straw Hats has to deal with her captors, a secret government black ops cell powerful enough that everyone needs to learn new techniques just to fight on even ground. Also revealed are the lengths the World Government are willing to go to to protect the secrets of the Void Century, including [[spoiler: wiping out entire islands to a man.]] On the other hand, the members of said black ops cell include an overdramatic kabuki actor who keeps trying to commit seppuku, a huge blob of a man with a [[VocalDissonance a voice that doesn't fit his stature at all]] and a zipper mouth, a woman with the power to create soap bubbles and a giraffe man. Also included is a cola-powered cyborg Film/AceVentura look-a-like who at one point tries to escape capture by inflating his ass while talking in a dead serious manner, and Chopper's [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Monster Point]], which transforms him into a gigantic, dead-eyed, berserk monster...with a pink top hat.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Sing}}'': Buster Moon's at the absolute lowest form of his life, forced to do "The only other job [he] know[s]," washing cars on the street. It's absolutely depressing seeing him so dead inside. It's absolutely hilarious that the manner in which he washes cars is getting dunked in soapy water and ''swimming across the surface of the car.'' Complete with dramatic opera music.
