Added DiffLines:

** The ending of "Mac Is a Serial Killer" surpasses any expectations that might have been set by the episode title itself. The gang is interrogating Mac about his (alleged) serial-killing ways, when [[spoiler:Charlie opens the fridge in the apartment they've borrowed for the interrogation, only to find a dozen human heads]]. Then [[spoiler:Dee's weird friend Gary, the actual tenant of the apartment and clearly the actual serial killer, comes home]]. Everyone looks at each other in silence for a moment...and [[spoiler:Frank [[PayEvilUntoEvil revs up the chainsaw]]]]. SmashCut to the end credits.


Added DiffLines:

* ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'' is a fairly lighthearted show ([[CerebusSyndrome for the first two seasons]], anyway), but it dabbles in a little of this. For example, at one point [[ButtMonkey Jaune]] is having trouble keeping up in a WorldOfBadass, and upset over a few other things as well. His partner Pyrrha takes him up to the roof of their school; her intention is ([[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan ostensibly]]) just to have someplace private to talk things over, but he [[ComicallyMissingThePoint reassures her]] that he's "not ''that'' [[DrivenToSuicide depressed]]." Her horrified reaction is what sells it.
** ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'', being all comedy sketches and minimal plot, has a few [=BCBs=][[note]][[{{Literature/Discworld}} not that kind]][[/note]] as well. Highlights include Ruby (almost) accidentally hanging herself with [[CapeSnag her cape]], Jaune drowning because Neptune was [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes afraid to come down to the water]] and haul him out, Ruby pulling an adorably manipulative BedtimeBrainwashing on Weiss ([[spoiler:actually, on all of her teammates]]), and the ''entire sketch'' starring [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl Ren and Nora]] that turns out to be an homage to ''{{Literature/Misery}}''.

* After Spider-Man saves a group of students on a field trip in SpiderManHomecoming, Peter's teacher declares his relief at not losing a student on a field trip... [[NoodleIncident Again]]. It might be the darkest joke in any MCU movie.

* An early example is the episode where Steven ends up creating a bunch of time-displaced clones of himself in order to staff his musical band, until he breaks the device that caused the whole thing, causing all his clones to rather graphically dematerialize... after which we then cut to Steven and the Crystal Gems singing the chipper song he was practicing earlier in the episode, with... somewhat altered lyrics.

** In "Traffic Cam Caper", Carl claims that O.W.C.A. lost Agent T the previous November, the implication being that Agent T was a turkey and was eaten for Thanksgiving dinner. Later in "The Remains of the Platypus", Major Monogram brings up Agent T again when he draws a hand turkey, which horrifies Perry, causing Monogram to ask if it was TooSoon.
