* In one of the ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' books, Nicci, Death's Mistress and an obscenely powerful and deadly sorceress, makes a pronunciation that the end of the world may well be upon them all. The narration notes that she's a little undercut by the fact she's wearing a pink, frilly nightgown.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', a Krogan who has the drop on Shepard starts a rant about how he's defeated Shepard and will rule Tuchanka. If the player takes a Renegade interrupt that pops up during the speech, Shepard fires a single shot from his/her sidearm, which then causes him to mock Shepard for missing and proving how incompetent and overrated s/he is. He fails to notice the now-leaking gas line Shepard was aiming at until Shepard helpfully points it out just before it explodes.

* ''Series/BobsBurgers'' - in "Bob And Deliver", the company that provides school meals finds Home Economics substitute teacher Bob cutting into their business. The company head gets Bob into his car and threatens him, then attempts to push him out. From the back seat of a cheap two-door car, which requires some jostling and front seat manipulation. And the car is sitting in the parking lot.

** Shen himself has moments of this. He is seen practicing his [[EvilGloating villainous monologue]] for when he meets Po, only to have the panda interrupt the actual speech with a very causal "Hey, how's it goin'?"

When a character tries to be dramatic and fails miserably. Often overlaps with TheExitIsThatWay. Similar to {{Narm}}, but in a FailedAttemptAtDrama, though the character is trying to be dramatic, the humor is intentional on the writer's part.
