* This is the sort of thing that prompts most of the NightmareFace moments in ''Manga/ItoJunjiNoNekoNikki'', which counts as SelfDeprecation as Creator/JunjiIto has made a career out of playing the former trope straight in his horror manga.

* Ethan from ''{{WebVideo/H3h3productions}}'' is occasionally "triggered" by idiotic videos which causes him to seize hilariously in his chair.

* This is a standard means of easy comical bits for a few incarnations of the Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'', especially the Second Doctor, the Fourth Doctor during the Romana era and the first couple of seasons of the Tenth Doctor. The Second Doctor has never had an expression he couldn't somehow do ''moreso'', and the Fourth and Tenth are all protruding teeth and googly eyes (one short ExpandedUniverse story suggested that the Fourth Doctor overreacts deliberately in order to amuse Romana). The Sixth was also prone to overreacting, but [[PlayedForDrama in his case it wasn't funny]] (though it is used for humour in the Big Finish universe).

In the 2015 Christmas special the Twelfth Doctor took the chance to deliver how the standard shock to seeing the inside of the TARDIS should be done in this manner, this was at a time when River Song didn't know his identity and was borrowing the TARDIS.

* Nate from ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' gets peeved when his ice cream cone only has ''three'' swirls instead of four like in the advertising photos. He insists it's a yokai's fault however Whisper disagrees, thinks he is overreacting, and insists it was a human error... It turns out it really is a yokai eating the ice cream though.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebAnimation/LlamasWithHats'' is an inversion - what makes it funny is not just the destruction Carl causes, but Paul's severe under-reaction. While Paul ''is'' shocked by the things Carl does, he reacts no worse to Carl sinking a cruise ship or stabbing a man 37 times than he does to Carl making muddy hoof-prints on the clean carpet.

* [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] practically has this trope in his name, from an AtomicFBomb over the ''Franchise/StarWars'' films being redone in 3D, to fainting in joy over VideoGame/{{StarCraft II}}.

** However, Rarity is by no means the ''only'' one to do this. All of the mane cast have done this at least once, and Twilight Sparkle once spent [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero an entire episode]] basically coming unhinged ''because there was no problem.''
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', the episode [=S04E05=] has Bender audition for a role on "All My Circuits", only to pronounce Spanish words as phonetic English (e.g. Chihuahua as "chee-hue-hueh"). Calculon responds by punching the desk and declaring it was so terrible it ''[[RefugeInAudacity probably gave him cancer.]]''

* On ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', when Joe is about to have surgery to have his legs replaced and Dr. Hartman puts on a how-to video starring Jamie Farr:
-->'''Jamie Farr:''' Hi, I'm Jamie Farr, and you're about to perform leg surgery. First off, what's your name?\\
'''Dr. Hartman:''' Dr. Hartman.\\
'''Jamie Farr:''' Great name, but I'm gonna call you "pal".\\
'''Joe:''' [[BigNo NOOOOOOOO!]] (faints)

* One of WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb's devices accidentally split Candace into two selves representing her two biggest obsessions: being in love with Jeremy, and needing to bust her brothers. Busting Candace was so shocked by the sight of Lovey-Dovey Candace leaving the mall with their mom Linda that she screamed and pointed in a ShoutOut to the 1978 version of ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers''.
