* In an episode of ''Series/{{Cheers}}'', when an old teammate dies, Coach is asked to give a eulogy; but when Coach finds out that the old friend was sleeping with his wife, he's mortified, and at first, intends to invoke this trope to tell him off. However, it is Subverted because he can't bring himself to do it, and delivers a touching eulogy. However, this leads to one of the guests saying he's ''almost'' ready to forgive the man, indicating that ''his'' wife slept with him, and it is soon revealed that this is true for ''all'' the men attending. A double subversion is risked when they want to hang him in effigy, but Diane, ever the peacemaker, starts singing AmazingGrace, and the subversion stands.

* A well-known joke has a memorial service for a particularly nasty person, and the vicar/rabbi/imam asking for somebody to share some pleasant memory of the deceased. There is then silence for some time, until a voice is heard saying "[[EvilerThanThou He wasn't as bad as his brother was]]". (This has been told as an anecdote about several real-life people, but is probably apocryphal.)

* In ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'', ogres are supposed to be {{Designated Villain}}s, so things like living in swamps, acting all mean and intimidating are considered desirable behavior. This even goes to their burial rights, where this trope is ''required'' to properly bury an ogre. Ogres prefer to be buried someplace nasty like a garbage dump; if something like that isn't handy, you need to ''curse'' the burial site you choose. That's how Smash managed to negotiate one of Good Magician Humphrey's obstacles in ''Ogre, Ogre'': he convinced a gate made of ogre's bones to fall apart so he could bury them properly: which he does when he insults the bones after burying them.

* The ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'' episode "I Wish I Were Gus" is built around several fascets of this. First, Ray is given the duty of having to write a eulogy for a family member he rarely (if ever) spent any time with, and one that led an uneventuful life as well, to which he decides to spend his time discussing the problems he's dealing with that day. Then, Marie and her sister renew decades-long disdain towards one another and make comments during the funeral. Also, Robert ends up making strange noises throughout, and eventually leaves.
