Sometimes when a character, especially a SadClown or PluckyComicRelief type, is facing death, they find the whole experience laugh-out-loud funny. Othertimes, [[MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning Their Death Is Just The Beginning]]. Or sometimes, the laughter itself is what kills them, especially if they've just been hit with ComedyAsAWeapon. Either way, that's where this trope comes in. Can also overlap with LaughingMad.

* "Die Laughing" was the title of a ''DangerMouse'' episode. In it, Baron Greenback sends the leaders of the world into fits of laughter with a gas treated with a laugh-inducing micro-organism.
* The Creator/TexAvery short "Symphony in Slang" starts with a slang-heavy hipster meeting Noah Webster at Heaven's pearly gates. With many a VisualPun used to demonstrate his story, the hipster is revealed to have literally died from laughter.

** Speaking of which, at the end of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' an incredibly dark and twisted version happens [[spoiler:when SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker dies. Batman tells the Joker that if he hadn't stabbed him, causing him to drop the Titan antidote, he would have given it to him and saved his life. To which the Joker starts laughing hysterically while coughing uncontrollably and admits that it's ActuallyPrettyFunny. [[GoOutWithASmile He then dies with an enormous smile on his face.]]]]
