* Although ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' runs on BlackComedy, one scene in the [[AdventuresInComaland Dreamland]] season is worth mentioning. It depicts the origin story of the Dreamland version of Kreiger, where it reveals that [[spoiler: he was a jew in World War II who faked his death and came back as a Nazi Scientist. He hindered the Nazis by sabotaging programmes to make cyborgs by killing his patients and wasting as much of their money as possible. He and his nurse had also fallen in love. Then Kreiger is confronted by Nazi scientists, and he sends cyborg dogs to maul them to death.]] This scene is three minutes long, and in contrast to the show's [[RapidFireComedy usual style]], it's played completely seriously...until the nurse says that she hates Kreiger for being a jew, and Kreiger casually has the dogs maul her to death.

* The ''OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' episode "A Royal Flush" has largely been disowned by the fandom. It involves Rodney falling for an upper class girl, only for Del to sabotage the relationship with his boorish, obnoxious behaviour, which is played up even more than usual. Afterwards, Del is completely unsympathetic and even mocks Rodney for calling him out on it. [[CreatorBacklash The show creator John Sullivan and David Jason have both shown regret that the episode was made.]]

** In "Roger's Baby" Francine tells Hayley that she's been pregnant four times. Hayley counts that she and Steve are her only kids, the implication being that the other two pregnancies were miscarriages or abortions.

** In "Bubble Buddy", the titular character, Bubble Buddy, is left by SpongeBob to dig a fish out of the sand. He doesn't, and the fish is killed by high tide. What suddenly makes it more horrifying is that it turns out that [[spoiler: Bubble Buddy was, in fact, alive and sentient all along]]. What suddenly makes it less horrifying is that 1) the said fish's ghost seems to be happy that he "experienced high tide", 2) the fish [[NegativeContinuity is alive in later episodes]].
