* In an episode of ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'', Mario and friends are thrown into a dungeon. Mario tells Luigi that things could be worse. Luigi asks him how, and Mario tells him that the ceiling could flatten them like a pizza. Right on cue, [[DescendingCeiling the ceiling starts descending on them]]. Mario, undaunted, says that water could flood the room until they drown like rats. [[RiseToTheChallenge You know what happens next.]] Mario, still keeping his cool, says he could think of other things that could be worse, but Luigi promptly shuts him up.

* In ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'', Linkara had just finished reviewing ''Comicbook/JusticeLeagueCryForJustice'' (a comic that got him to show [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness genuine]] [[TranquilFury hatred]] instead of his usual ComicalOverreacting), and when he asked how things could get worse, he ended up on the receiving end of a CurbStompBattle at the hands of Lord Vyce. While Linkara survived the fight, the next episode showed [[HeroicBSOD how utterly broken he felt from the experience]].

* A classic version in ''StarWars IV: ANewHope'' where the heroes are in the trash compactor and Han complains about the situation. Leia retorts that it could be worse, only for all to hear a sound ominous enough for Han to go, "It's worse." Shortly afterward, Luke gets attacked by a dionaga. And then [[TheWallsAreClosingIn the walls start closing in]].

* ''Literature/SadCypress'': Peter Lord asks HerculePoirot to investigate a case against Elinor Carlisle (the girl he's in love with. Possible double murderess.) "Investigate" is [[LemonySnicket a word which here means]] that he wants Poirot to [[ClearTheirName help acquit her]]. Poirot tells him that he intends to reveal any evidence he finds, even if it makes Elinor's case worse, whereupon Lord informs him that the case against Elinor [[TemptingFate can't possibly get any worse]].
