* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': As a DeconstructiveParody of the MagicalGirl genre, it has a few commonly-seen tropes that get twisted and lead to this. Star is a MagicalGirl Princess who's been given too much power and freedom at too young an age and more than once terrorized her own people by accident. Her family rules over a beautiful, pastel-color-schemed CrapsackWorld styled after Medieval Europe, in that all of the people outside of nobility and the Royal family live in total squalor. To top it off, her family's history [[WrittenByTheWinners]] isn't exactly clean etheir.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is set [[AfterTheEnd 5000 years after a huge war over Earth's resources which left a huge scar on the crystal gems and presumably on human civilization as well.]] And they ''still'' have to deal with the [[JustForPun "corrupted"]] consequences of it, and are ''very'' worried it will happen again.

* ''Anime/SoRaNoWoTo'' takes place for the most part, in a lush, incredibly beautiful mountain village where people live fairly happy lives. As the series goes on however this is revealed to be one of the few places still like this, with most of the world being rendered uninhabitable due to a past war that was so devastating that it apparently killed off all life in the oceans and humanity technologically regressed to early twentieth century. To make things worse, the handful of major nations left are fighting for what remains and that shrinks every year as the remaining habitable land is undergoing irreversible desertification. Nobody seems shocked at all to have teenage girls enlisting in the army.
* HongKong as depicted in ''Manga/HaouAiren''. A bright, shining city full of prosperity and fun things to do... while [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs gangsters]] train children [[spoiler: like the BastardBoyfriend male lead]] as assassins in a shadow war filled with rape, murder, and suicide.

* Hope's Peak Academy in ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' was officially a government-funded private school whose goal was to raise hope for Japan's future, where students lived in harmony and were guaranteed success in life. However, the school's small pool of Ultimate students wasn't enough to keep the academy afloat, so they opened their doors to the public and began actively defrauding [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent reserve course students]] out of their parents' money with massive tuitions. Said students were also often bullied by the Ultimates [[spoiler: and one was manipulated into undergoing a surgical augmentation procedure by the school intended to make him a transhuman genius, which eradicated his old personality]]. The [[VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls third game]] reveals that the school's staff may have even been ''actively abusive'' toward their own students, including the [[WouldHurtAChild elementary branch]]. And this is all before The Tragedy even begins.

* The game ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' takes place in an {{Animesque}} setting that wouldn't look too out of place in a DatingSim, and happily indulges in the tropes associated with the HaremGenre. However, you play as a murderous stalker who will do anything, up to and including murder, to make sure that her object of affection is single. The game's backstory also features delightful things like [[spoiler:the protagonist's mother also being a {{Yandere}} who murdered, manipulated, and kidnapped for love,]] and some of the characters having a DarkAndTroubledPast you can exploit. WordOfGod says the game's design is meant to resemble a {{Yandere}} in appearance; while it looks like an innocent, pleasant game at first glance, its nature as a horror game becomes apparent once you get into the gameplay. This is further emphasized by the [[DynamicDifficulty "School Atmosphere"]] mechanic, in which the game and its NPCs start looking gloomy if people start to realize there's a SerialKiller at their school.

* Cabot Cove in ''Series/MurderSheWrote'' seems like a cozy costal town, but during the show's run, it had 274 of its 3,500 residents murdered. That's a murder rate of ''149 per 100,000'', higher than all but one city in real life.
This list shows the last 10 events of 1358. Show all.
