* ''VideoGame/Runbow'' is this when there's a good amount of players present, especially the maximum of ''NINE'' players at once. Even more hectic on the stages with tricky platforming, and if you want more hilarity, set the items to "Chaos" before starting a local game or private online room.

* ''TabletopGames/{{Fiasco}}'' also has this written into the rules. In set-up, people create characters by defining their relationships to each other, motivations and attached places and objects, meaning that everyone is automatically placed at cross-purposes to each other, usually with elements written with such a tone as to encourage the creation of UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist-type characters. There are only two outcomes in ''Fiasco'' - Good and Bad - and these are either determined by the other players on the table by consensus for your character, or determined by you at a penalty of allowing the other players on the table to determine whatever ridiculous thing your character is actually doing to succeed or fail at. The result is that everything soon goes spectacularly wrong, and after half of the game is played, an event called "The Tilt" happens which adds a bunch of extra, awful events on top of everything that inevitably is already going wrong. The mechanics make it very difficult for characters to have a happy ending, with getting out of the situation back where you started but with a bunch of fresh physical and emotional scars being about as best as a player can hope for unless they get really lucky. That said, most players like to [[BlackComedy play to lose]].

* People have reported (complained) about getting/downloading what they thought was Disney's ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' for their kids when it ended up being [[SimilarlyNamedWorks the OTHER]] ''Film/{{Frozen}}'' with a group of tasty friends stuck in the snow on a ski lift and hungry hungry wolves.

* Tons of examples in ''Manga/OnePiece''. The rather off-the-wall thought processes of the Straw Hats and plenty of other characters make everything comedic fodder. The idea behind a stretchy hero is, in the first place, to make serious situations funny.
** Made all the funnier when an outsider (Vivi, Jimbe or Law) teams up with the straw hats and has no idea how to respond to their antics.

* On ''Manga/DragonBall'', [[DirtyOldMan Master Roshi]]'s interactions with a female character, any female character. Also when Vegetto gets turned into a gumball by Buu. Everything from that point until when Kid Buu [[spoiler:destroys the Earth]] qualifies as this.

* Gaius's recruitment in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' invokes this: he is originally part of a group of intruders sent to assassinate the Exalt Emmeryn, but [[EvenEvilHasStandards Gaius is having second thoughts]]. When Chrom approaches him, Gaius says he'll turn coats if Chrom can "sweeten the deal". Chrom first thinks he means monetary compensation, but then he drops a bag of candy and...well, Gaius did say "''[[ExactWords sweeten]]'' the deal"!

* Given the GagSeries nature of ''Literature/HowToSurviveAZombieApocalypse'', it isn't surprising seventy percent of situations end up in this. An example may be the Anti-Zombie Squad, a group formed to end the AfterTheEnd scenario, tea up with zombies themselves to flee a place full of even ''more'' psychotic people.
