For worlds that are almost literal sacks of crap see TheDungAges. See YouWouldNotWantToLiveInDex for other crapsack environments. On a less negative note, the WorldOfBadass will also be likely to have elements of the Crapsack World, to give justification on why kicking ass is very important to survival.

survival. Compare WorldOfJerkass, a world which is only unpleasant because all of the characters are horrible people.

* A ''[[RuleOfFunny comedic]]'' Crapsack World is PlayedForLaughs and is made up of [[LethallyStupid idiots]], [[jerks JerkAss]], {{Butt Monkey}}s, [[TheChewToy Chew Toys]] and the occasional OnlySaneMan, with plenty of ComedicSociopathy to go around. These include the BlackComedy, the SadistShow and the WorldGoneMad. The "upside" is that it's usually [[SatireParodyPastiche parodic]] and [[CrossesTheLineTwice funny in its extremes]]. Though people die left and right, it likely has NegativeContinuity to facilitate the inhabitants' suffering. Examples: ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants SpongeBob SquarePants]]'', ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'', ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''WebAnimation/MattNDusty'', ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', and ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' is [[BlatantLies not an example of this in the slightest.]]

* An ''[[StatusQuoIsGod immutable]]'' Crapsack World has agony InherentInTheSystem, both physically and metaphysically, and cannot be saved or made a better place. Trying to break TheCorruption [[StatusQuoIsGod will instead always result]] in [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu breaking every bone in your body]] [[DownerEnding and it winning]], and any positive changes that you try to make will ultimately be torn down and revealed to be AllForNothing--or, even worse, they will only succeed in [[NiceJobBreakingItHero making things even worse for you and the people that you were trying to help]], and/or [[GambitRoulette even accomplish whatever the villains wanted in the first place]]. Examples: ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', ''TabletopGame/{{FATAL}}'', and the LovecraftianFiction genre in general.
