* ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'': Sadness talking about the "funny movie where [[Film/MarleyAndMe the dog dies]]". Double for when Joy desperately brings it up to try to cheer her up. This goes even further in at least one foreign dub, where it's "the movie where [[WesternAnimation/TheLionKing the lion's father dies]]."

[[folder:Fanfic]]
* In ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'', when Jade goes trick or treating, if she didn't like what she got, she goes back and throws LIVE RATS in the poor people's faces!
* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6130321/1/bJesus_b_and_bHitler_b_A_Romance Jesus and Hitler, A Romance]]''. Pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. As one review put it:
-->This is the single most disgusting nasty offensive thing I've ever read. And it's bloody amazing!
* [[http://humon.deviantart.com/art/Kangaroo-Wife-148578041?offset=0 This piece]] of fanart for ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' references a throwaway line in the game about Sniper's "Kangaroo Wife", but rather than go the obvious route it subverts it... then crosses it... then crosses it again, all while being [[CrowningMomentOfFunny bloody hilarious]].
** The same artist does it again, this time with [[http://humon.deviantart.com/art/Sleeping-with-your-parents-149534607 The Spy]].
* ''FanFic/MyImmortal'' pretty much runs on this, either [[TrollFic intentionally]] or not.
** As does ''Fanfic/ThirtyHs'', which crosses the line so many times it may win the all-time achievement award for line-crossing.
* [[spoiler: The death of Mami]] in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' was disturbing. Some of the fanart reacting to that, like [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/853948/-_-beret-blonde_hair-blush-boots-breasts-charlotte this one]] (NSFW ads)... Not so much.
** It's more like it's ''more common'' to see [[spoiler:Mami and Charlotte]] to be together in a completely happy situation. To the point that it's one of the more common [[CrackPairing pairings]] in the show's {{Shipping}} fandom.
* ''FanFic/LatiasJourney'' crosses the line a ''billion'' times. It is ''unimaginably'' {{gor|n}}y but it is so over the top that it starts getting funny.
* Arguably, the later installment of the ''Fanfic/PokeWars'' series are getting to be like this.
* ''Fanfic/TheLastWar'' goes so over the top in its [[RonTheDeathEater portrayal of Ron]] as the Potterverse's answer to [[Series/EastEnders Trevor Morgan]] that it becomes a total farce very quickly. Even before the [[Series/TheATeam A-Team]] show up.
* The entire premise of ''[[FanFic/TamersForeverSeries Theory of Chaos]]'' is this trope taken UpToEleven.
** Basically what happens is [[spoiler: a Doumon¬ bewitches all the tamers except for Takato into becoming the embodiment of each of the seven deadly sins so we now have Rika Nonaka as a ''frieking avatar of lust!''.]] The whole thing is just so WRONG it's hilarious, and Ruki and [[spoiler:Chaos']] comments make it that much better.
* Virtually any story by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/975122/the_6ft_dick the 6 foot dick]] ([[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast With such a name, what did you expect?!]]).
* [[http://www.mediaminer.org/fanfic/view_ch.php?id=19769&cid=49552&submit=View The Legend of Link: Lucky Number 13]] does this on occasion by treating extreme violence and shady morality casually.
** When Link goes to save Takara and Varia, he is confronted by camouflaged soldiers. He drives them into a fear-driven frenzy and uses magic to jam their guns so they are forced to bash and pummel each other to death. The bastards deserve it, but the drama ends the moment Link reasons there's "something missing" and, for ''no reason other than his amusement'', follows up with a [[CompellingVoice casual instruction]]: [[ImAHumanitarian "Mouths only."]]
** Following on from that scene, the [[SymbioticPossession shadow]] [[HeroicComedicSociopath demon]] goes on to ''graphically'' mutilate and kill 12 women and 28 children (the families of the scientists responsible for Takara and Varia's torment) on Link's orders. Deadly serious? Yes. Morally questionable? Absolutely. The shadow demon musing on a name for itself, then treating the survivors' shocked silence the way an inexperienced comedian would regard an audience that wasn't laughing? ''Hilarious.''
-->Still, no one spoke, which seemed to make the creature genuinely uncomfortable.
-->"No? Shade? Shady?"
-->The men stood silent, tears and mucus streaming down their faces, but the creature continued. Its flippancy and their inability to make it respect their loved ones' lost lives made them cry harder.
-->"The Hand, then? Handy? No? None of those?"
* In Fanfic/BellaSwanPregnantAndFurious, [[spoiler: Satan]] gets beaten so hard by Bella (yes, ''that'' [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Bella]]), that ''his internal organs start coming out of his mouth''. He is left "toothless and organless", "coughing blood and trembling with pain."
* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8388109/1/Cartman-s-Revenge Cartman's Revenge]], also on Website/DeviantArt as [[http://soyouwillhateme.deviantart.com/art/South-Park-Tasteless-Theatre-317613973 South Park: Tasteless Theatre]] is a disgusting satirical lampooning of the Aurora Theatre Shooting that was released [[TooSoon a week after the fact]]. Not mention the author has gone on record stating that he thought up the idea ''moments after it happened'' and planned to release the story the ''[[TooSoon day after the fact]]'', but thought it would be too tasteless.
* The NSFW short story "Peach's Double Life", which details in rather explicit manner [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Princess Peach's]] sexual affairs between [[TheHero Mario]] [[YourCheatingHeart and]] [[BigBad Bow]][[InterspeciesRomance ser]] on the occasions she's being rescued by the former and being "kidnapped" by the latter. If ''that'' wasn't enough, it then goes into a detailed account of "Bowser Jr's spiky shell, unknowingly, used for the sexual pleasure of Peach, as she births him."
* [[FandomSpecificPlot A very common plot]] in fanfiction of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime is to rewrite the story from the beginning, with Ash supposedly being smarter and more awesome. [[SturgeonsLaw As one might expect]], most do nothing but turn him into a GodModeStu. However, ''Fanfic/TheGreatestThereWasOrEverWillBe'' manages to avoid this trap simply by making Ash so far ahead of his canon self that it becomes comical -- imagine Ash channeling the heroine of ''Manga/MedakaBox'', and one wouldn't be too far off.
* ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' crosses the line tons of times, with hilariously gory violence, RuleOfCool, UnfortunateImplications galore, and [[BlackComedyRape black comedy]] [[{{Squick}} child molestation]]. [[CrapsackWorld The setting in general]] crosses tons of lines too - one of the Jewish Republic's most powerful units are HumongousMecha powered by ''the souls of Holocaust victims'', and the Muslims of the Emirate of Mecca pacify captured populations with ''female genital mutilation on a planetary scale'' (to be honest, the Muslims themselves except for Abduhl and [[AFatherToHisMen al-Walim]] are so near-cartoonishly evil that they alone could be considered this trope).
** Most of the BlackComedy in the story falls headfirst into this trope;
-->'''D'Arnazhee''': Looks like these Jews couldn't find any foreskins. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Not really 'chosen people' material]].
--> '''Beelzebub [[spoiler: after raping Chris and nearly raping Cosmo]]''': [[{{Squick}} They were a bit tight]], but don't worry, [[BrainBleach I think they've loosened up now]].
** Episode 68 gives us [[ComicallyMissingThePoint this gem]] when Jesus starts angsting about all the people killed in the Angel invasion of the galaxy;
--> '''al-Walim''': Look on the bright side, [[TakeThat at least they weren't aborted]].
--> '''Tobit''': And you got rid of the gays. I mean, you know how much Allysion hates fags.
* As with most interpretations of the character, The Joker absolutely skips rope with the line in one of his two brief appearances in ''FanFic/AngelOfTheBat''. Most of the presentations of death in the story are very dark handled seriously. But then The Joker kills some workers and employees of Arkham Asylum, his reasons for doing so including "Making bad meatloaf", "Stealing an extra package of cream cheese" and "I just never liked you." When confronting TheFundamentalist (and later BigBad) Daniel Lebowitz, Joker says he doesn't like religion because it promotes bigotry, and he prefers to kill everyone instead of specific people.
* FanFic/SupperSmashBrosMishonhFromGod makes all gays and 'lesbians' into licentious [[HollywoodSatanism Hollywood Satanists]], who want nothing more than to turn others gay by 'rapping' them, so that they change to being homosexual. Anytime this happens, it is done completely inaccurately, and is extremely over-the-top that it becomes a complete laugh.

* Many Internet Radio shows do this in terms of sheer vulgarity since there is virtually no censorship; wonder how far it can go; this line says it all: "Oh god they said that Jesus gave it to his mother!"
** After The Forking Show (ATFS), a podcast spinoff of a now defunct Australian radio show called The Spoonman, crosses the line in every podcast. One notable, repeated example: Bringing slavery to Australia (both played for laughs and discussed seriously).
* The cartoons in ''The Rejection Collection'' crossed the line once when they were rejected by ''The New Yorker,'' but crossed it a second time when they were funny enough to be published in this book.
* Bringing guns into an NBA locker room and threatening a teammate with them? Crossing the line. At a game, pantomiming shooting his teammates as a joke? This trope. Nice job, Gilbert Arenas.
* The funnier jokes on [[http://www.sickipedia.org Sickipedia]]. There's a reason why Frankie Boyle and Sickipedia appear to have reached something of a "steal and steal alike" agreement.
* Creator/MelBrooks on what he does for a living: "If I cut my finger, that's tragedy. If a man walks into an open sewer and dies, that's comedy!"
* Any tragic event will lead to jokes. ''Immediately''. When TooSoon doesn't qualify, this trope usually kicks in.
* Attempted rape? Not funny. [[WebVideo/AutoTuneTheNews Antoine Dodson?]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMtZfW2z9dw Funny]].
** AutoTune can make almost any video funny. Crazy fan nails Justin Bieber in the head with a water bottle? Tasteless. Auto-Tune the resulting clip into a song? Hilarious!
* Meta-Example: DarthWiki/TropesThatWillNeverHappen is full of this, especially the "Too Dangerous" section.

* During the Jimmy Saville pedophile scandal, one audience member texted this message to a BBC Morning Radio program which got read out live on air:
--> [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9yJUOdVyUc "I wish everyone would stop criticising Jimmy Savile. He was a nice man. When I was eight he fixed it for me to milk a cow blind-folded."]]
* At the memorial service for Creator/GrahamChapman, Creator/JohnCleese delivered a scathing set of insults, followed by pointing out that if the deceased had been alive, he'd have done it himself.

* A baby once flipped the bird at its parents. And not just any baby, but a ''[[http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features/4686203/baby-flips-out-during-routine-scan.html fetus]]''. Apparently, the ultrasound disturbances were pissing the young thing off.
* [[http://www.ftlcomm.com/ensign/cropson/2002/canola/canola.html Tisdale, Saskatchewan]] is famous for its [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapeseed rapeseed]] and honey so naturally they picked [[Literature/TheBible "the land of rape and honey"]] as their slogan. Music/{{Ministry}} saw the slogan on a ''souvenir mug'' and just had they make an album title out of it.
* Art in the SocialistRealism style is generally derided for being bombastic, over-the-top and self-aggrandizing. [[http://www.mockduck.net/2009/09/06/oafish-state-sponsored-art/ The statue at the bottom of this page]] (erected after the liberation of Berlin) is all of those things and so much more: a Soviet soldier in BadassLongcoat rescuing a baby with one hand and wielding a {{BFS}} in the other, while pulling a CaptainMorganPose on a [[SmashTheSymbol smashed swastika]]. Subtle. ''Awesome''.

* Recounting [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Gill#Personal_life the dark and secret life of type designer Eric Gill]] (whose eponymous sans-serif font is all over Britain, even today) often fits this trope. His diaries, not made public until the 1980s, describe in great detail how he had [[BrotherSisterIncest a sexual relationship with his sister]]. And [[FromBadToWorse how he molested all his children]]. But that still wasn't enough. [[RuleOfThree For the trifecta]], [[spoiler:he molested his dog]].

* Some humourous Amazon reviews of the anti-vaccination book ''[[Literature/MelaniesMarvelousMeasles Melanie's Marvelous Measles]]'':
** [[http://www.amazon.com/review/R2ALP6J4FPWE2W/ This one]] lists a ton of fictional children's books whose {{Alliterative Title}}s use the format "[name]'s [adjective] [disease]". This leads to fun titles like "Bertha's Blossoming Bulimia", "Carol's Colorful Chlamydia", "Dominic's Domineering Dementia", "Hillary's Hilarious HIV", "Lisa's Lovely Lassa Fever", "Prunella's Practically Preventable Prion" and "Sam's Saintly Schizophrenia".
** "I'm so happy I bought a hard copy version of this book. If I bought an audiobook, I never would have gotten my money's worth as both of my daughters went deaf from Measles Encephalitis. They now have a great book and a lifelong disability to remind them how much I truly love them!"
** [[http://www.amazon.com/gp/review/R3Q3E92SBF8MF1 This one]] calls "Benevolent Bubonic Plague" a "gentle, all-natural diet aide", says that the USA only won UsefulNotes/WorldWarII because FDR got polio instead of the vaccine, and uses some InsaneTrollLogic to justify the 1-star rating.
