* Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei is chock-full of this, particularly when the title character keeps trying to commit suicide in outlandish ways, and even has a little notebook of students who can commit suicide with him. Not to mention he owns a suicide kit that he'll often offer to other people who he thinks are in despair. Said kit contains numerous methods and devices used to kill oneself.

* There's some pretty dark humor in ''FanFic/TheStoryToEndAllStories'', which is evident right from the opening scene in which Barney the Dinosaur is unceremoniously killed off.

But where's the Black Comedy in that? This event is referenced in the doujin FightingGame ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'': Akiko has a super move that starts with a car (At level 3 it's a small truck) speeding towards her, suddenly Akiko notices, catches it ''with one hand'', and [[CarFu throws it into her opponent for good damage.]] Yeah, she has a strange sense of humor.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'', Nayuki's mom Akiko, in one occasion, got hit by a car and was nearly killed, while her daughter blamed herself for that. She only managed to survive thanks to a mircale worked by Ayu.\\

* The RealLife page has a surprising amount of this, most likely due to nearly [[DeconstructorFleet every single trope being applied to the real world]].



* In general, many pages regarding death or other dark circumstances, such as FunnyAneurysmMoment, fall under this trope, due to being written in the same casual, humorous, snarky style of most pages on the site.



* ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' can fall into this, if you go into it with the right sort of mindset. There's something about the image of Rin trying to paint with no arms that's hilarious.
** One unintentional example was one of the RelaxOVision screens that can pop up if you disable the sex scenes. During Hanako's route (the girl who has suffered third degree burns on half her body), an image of ''fried shrimp'' can randomly appear as the filler image for her sex scene.

*** CTF, or Cletus the Fetus is an obscure black comedy medical term for a baby born at 23 weeks, where the survival rate is less than 1%. There have been no cases of a baby surviving birth before 22 weeks, confirming [[MakesSenseInContext doctors may have the blackest of all humor]].

*** Britain tends to be this way about death often, a news report in November 2014 reported that a poll in Great Britain that the most popular song at British funerals is Monty Python's "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life".

* The military is a fertile ground for black comedy, and so are hospitals. ''A military hospital'' is a place where the doctors, nurses, and medics often engage in humor so black that it absorbs all light, and horrifies many who aren't familiar with the conditions those men and women are working under. They're doing it because they're trying their best to stay sane.



* Some people who suffer from eating disorders, depression, self harm, etc. will often make fun of it, some to alleviate pain, others just for the hell of it. Sometimes they are so desensitized to it that they will make a joke about it in front of someone else, only to see the other person staring in horror.

* The entirety of the humor found in ''Podcast/KakosIndustries'' is derived from pain, humiliation, and extreme vulgarity. This is a show about an EvilInc, after all.

* David was tasked to collect 100 foreskins from Philistines to prove his worth to marry King Saul's daughter. When he returns with 200 foreskins, everybody sways between admiration and horror. When asked how he did it he answers: "Well it went much more smoothly when I realized that I could kill them beforehand."
