* The series ''WesternAnimation/DanVs'' revolves around the titular character getting vengeance on anyone over minor accidents...and most of it is played for comedy too. It also becomes justified at times since most of the folks Dan tries to take vindictive action on coincidentally ''do'' end up being worse.

* ''Grrl Power!'' One half-hour OAV which focuses on convincing this one guy to go to school. How do the girls do it? [[spoiler: Set him up for all kinds of miserable tasks, and when he asks for payment, explain that it's not a part-time job. The girls are saving up to set up a new country at some island.]] Oh, and there's also this one man who the girls refuse to do a damn thing for, for no explained reason, even though they make a point of helping everyone else who can pay up.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is a highly rare example of a ''tragic'' Sadist Show. Bad and/or horrible things happen to ''every'' single character, and Shinji, the main protagonist & series' ButtMonkey (PlayedForLaughs at the beginning; later PlayedForDrama), gets the worst of it. By the final scene of the series, [[spoiler: he's ''completely'' broken.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. It's a rare occasion that the neighborhood kids did something positive toward the Eds. [[spoiler: It changed by the end of the movie--the neighborhood kids actually start liking the Eds at that point.]] In most of the episodes, a character gets hurt practically every five seconds. The show revolves around pain.

And not just any old misfortune, like getting an AnvilOnHead. The agony in a SadistShow is a very sharp kind, the one that reminds you how totally unfair life is. It isn't a SadistShow unless the characters suffer the very opposite of poetic justice. For instance, if our UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist has been mugged, that's not enough. If the poor dope runs to report the mugging, and is arrested for jaywalking, and has to sit in jail while the mugger walks past their cell every day, that's the SadistShow.

* ''Justine'' by the Creator/MarquisDeSade is nothing but a SadistShow (written by the guy who gave rise to the very ''word'' "sadism", no less!) punctuated by philosophical monologues. The world is not just indifferent, but actively malevolent. Justine is [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished consistently punished for her decent behavior]] while her persecutors experience nothing but boons for their cruelty and selfishness.

* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'': Not only do wizards have to give up their powers and [[SiblingRivalry fight their siblings to be the only one in the family to keep them forever]], but even Alex, Justin and Max Russo, the ''main trio of siblings'' in the show, have been shown to be [[{{Sadist}} sadists]] ''themselves'' who will joke about killing someone for [[DesignatedEvil holding a revolution to make sure no wizard ever has to give up their powers and consider them "evil" for doing it.]][[note]]See "The Good, The Bad, and The Alex", where Justin considers Alex to be evil after she joins [[DesignatedVillain Stevie Nichols]] in her revolution to make sure no one ever has to give up their powers, but then Alex freezes Stevie before Max can take a picture for their revolutionary flag and Max knocks her over, shattering into pieces next to her brother, who's unconscious after touching the power transmitter, which gave him a "Full Wizard" cap and tie and Alex reveals that she was just playing along with Stevie to gain her trust and remarks, "That's a nice brother-sister moment," making fun of Stevie shattered into pieces of ice next to Warren, who's unconscious.[[/note]]

* The early novels of Evelyn Waugh are sadist shows. In the first few pages of Decline and Fall, for instance, Paul Pennyfeather gets debagged, expelled from Oxford, fined five and sixpence for two cigarette burns in his room, cheated out of his inheritance by his guardian, and sent to work in the worst school in England. No wonder he's upset. ('God damn and blast them all to hell,' said Paul meekly to himself as he drove to the station, and then he felt rather ashamed, because he rarely swore.')

* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}''. Everything that happens to [[ChewToy Charlie]] [[ButtMonkey Brown]]. Linus is not much better off, having such a tyrannical big sister as [[{{Jerkass}} Lucy]].

* ''Disney/ChickenLittle'' is just full of this. The title character overreacted to something falling on his head and causing a panic in the town and they [[NeverLiveItDown never let him live it down]] to the point that he's pretty much labeled a loon. His father isn't any better, constantly feeling ashamed of him and never even trying to connect with him, least till he manages to win a ball game for his town.
