* ''Series/{{TheGoodPlace}}'' has its protagonist Eleanor Shellstrop's former job of selling fake medicine to old people played as a joke, though [[LawfulGood Chidi]] is justifiably appalled.

* Sledgehammer O'Possum from ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow'' short "Out and About" runs on this, he inflicts all kinds of pain and torture on a dog who didn't even do anything to him, all in the name of comedy, if it weren't PlayedForLaughs and AmusingInjuries didn't occur Sledgehammer would be seen as a total psychopath.

* The LemonyNarrator of [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]] seems to relish in this trope, though it's all PlayedForLaughs. [[BlackComedy But some of the things she chooses to make fun of even had the author admit they felt terrible for writing it]].

** This trope is Michael's entire motivation for [[spoiler: creating Neighborhood 12358W, a.k.a 'the Good Place', so that Architects can watch the torture within the Neighborhood without having to do all the work]].
** An even more literal example in season two: [[spoiler: apparently, it's common for demons to enjoy a 'Comedy Roast', an art form supposedly invented in the Bad Place that consists of insulting humans in cruel and humiliating ways, up to and including calling Jason dumb, saying Tahani's life was pointless and empty, mocking Chidi and Eleanor's complicated romantic situation, and hammering down her throat once again that Eleanor is a terrible person who deserves eternal torture]].
