* Music/GustavMahler's music is often very dark, moody and brooding. One of his oldest works was "Das Klagende Lied" ("The Song of Lament") and "Kindertotenlieder" ("Songs on the Death of Children") is also not exactly the happiest of subjects. "Das Lied von der Erde" also deals with tragic themes. And, of course, his famous "6th Symphony" is referred to as "Tragische" ("Tragic").

It should also be noted, that this trope is generally not too old, and hails back to the era of Frederick the Great (18th century) who received his name for turning the unstable melting pot of squabbling states into the efficient Prussian empire, but until Bismarck (late 19th century) this trope was usually limited to German military. See the 1632 entry below for a history-accurate point of view an Englishman or American could have possibly had about Germans.

* While most German comedy shows actually run on RuleOfFunny and {{Slapstick}}, almost all of them have a few sketches that work entirely on TheComicallySerious or TheEeyore. One example would be the sketch series [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUHxJDbnMgk "Schlechte Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten"]] [[note]]"Bad times, bad times"[[/note]] (a parody on the German soap series "Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten" [[note]]"Good times, bad times"[[/note]]) which was about a a shared flat of suicidal people doing mundane tasks, usually with one person already dead at the beginning and at least one more committing suicide during the sketch.

* In ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'', the German Cyborg Albert Heinrich/004 is given one of the most tragic backstories as an EastGermany escapé who loses his fiancée and has his body half-torn in their escape, is reconstructed as a ''heavily'' armored Cyborg by Black Ghost, and then is put into a coma for many years. Though he (thankfully) doesn't reach {{wangst}} levels, he often remarks on how everything has changed for him and shows deep worry [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul about how much of a human he truly is]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman due to all his implants]].
