When things look depressing for our comical {{anime}} hero, what's the best course of action? Why, go SuperDeformed, sit in a corner, wrap your arms around your knees, and sulk like you've never sulked before! Preferably in a DramaticSpotlight. Bonus points if you manage to act gloomy enough to attract GhostLights or grow mushrooms in your dark, damp corner of woe. Often combined with ColorFailure. See also ShowerOfAngst. The technical term for this is [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness latibulating]].
