* ''VideoGame/StardewValley'' has a cheery and relaxed atmosphere where it's impossible to kill your animals (but if you don't feet them and pet them they won't produce food), but in the intro at the [[PredatoryBusiness soul-crushing Joja Corp.]] there's both one employee who appears to be chugging prescription pills and the skeleton of another employee lying in a cubicle.

* Music/WeirdAlYankovic songs tend to have a fair bit of dark humor, but it's rarely anything that could actually offend anyone. Which makes this line all the more jarring. Given that it was one of his earliest songs, it could be EarlyInstallmentWeirdness:

Seconds later, Gumball accidentally drops the pizza on the floor with a splat, [[SymbolicBlood tomato sauce flying everywhere]] and [[BlankWhiteEyes mortifying the pizza parents]].

** "One Coarse Meal" is especially hated by fans for being this even for the show's standards, by playing Plankton's attempted suicide for laughs.

* 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.]]
