* ''WesternAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' enjoys both repeatedly massacring the cutesy GangOfCritters and causing wholesale destruction of their wooded homeland, along with ''setting fire to the Earth itself'' on occasion.

* At first glance, one might think ''VideoGame/Bastion'' is an example of this. The world is extremely colorful and the characters are kind of adorable looking. But the backstory and setting are actually rather grim, and the story deals with heavy themes like loss and regret. It still ends up with a pretty idealistic ending however.

* The Genocide route in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' potentially qualifies as this. [[spoiler: At first it doesn't seem 'too' much different from the Neutral or Pacifist routes, but after exiting the Ruins, things slowly start to escalate. Much of the humor is gone, nearly all of the non-enemy NPCs have evacuated, and the few NPCs you ''do'' encounter will react with apprehension and fear at [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential the atrocities you've committed]]. You have to go out of your way to [[KillEmAll hunt down every single monster in each area until none remain]] (said monsters including [[PungeonMaster an ice bird creature that aspires to be a successful comedian]], [[BigFriendlyDog an armor-wearing guard dog that likes to be petted]], [[BattleCouple another pair of dogs who are enthusiastically in love with each other]], [[PecFlex a horse/fish hybrid who constantly flexes his muscles]], [[NeatFreak a cleaning-obsessed turtle]], [[ShrinkingViolet a shy fish that likes to sing]], [[HealItWithFire a volcano that thinks its lava can heal people]], [[IceQueen an airplane that is a walking (flying?) parody of the Tsundere archetype]], [[HoYay a pair of guardsmen who secretly harbor romantic feelings for each other]], [[CreepyCute a spider girl who hosts a bake sale to raise money to get her fellow spiders out of the Ruins]], and [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Jerry (but nobody likes Jerry)]]), and most of the enemies encountered (including most of the bosses) are easily killed in one or two hits. The normally quirky tone of the game is exchanged for a sense of dread and ambience as you progress through the game, you are prompted at nearly every turn to give up your murderous tendencies, and even [[FoulFlower the]] [[TheFakeCutie main]] [[RealityWarper antagonist]] [[ManipulativeBastard of]] [[CameBackWrong the]] [[EmptyShell game]] eventually realizes that you're going to destroy everything, ''including him'' ([[TheFarmerAndTheViper even after he'd been helping you through the entire route thus far]]). And Lord help you if, [[YouBastard despite]] [[ThatOneBoss everything]], you actually manage to [[ApocalypseHow complete]] [[DealWithTheDevil the]] [[EvilOnlyHasToWinOnce Genocide]] [[SuddenDownerEnding route...]]]]

* ''[[http://probertson.livejournal.com/ Paul Robertson's]]'' work is all about this. For example, [[http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=908674814285543652 Pirate Babys Cabana Battle Street Fight]] emulates a ZombieApocalypse BeatEmUp with {{chibi}} characters.

* ''WatershipDown''. Played straight, then inverted when you find out what the [[KillerRabbit rabbits]] are capable of doing to ''each other''.

* The MLP:FIM fanfic [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/253045/i-am-going-to-save-and-or-destroy-equestria I Am Going To Save And/Or Destroy Equestria]] is about a world where Nightmare Moon and Celestia destroyed each other, rather than Celestia sealing her sister away. This causes the Fiends, the majority of whom are G1 villains, to be released from Tartarus, and without alicorns to defeat them, the results are not pretty. The entire Equestrian army is more or less annihilated in six minutes, and one of the interlude chapters features a survivor's story of the end of Baltimare, which plays as a combination of AttackOnTitan and NightOfTheLivingDead.

** The endless polar storms that threaten to engulf the Crystal Empire when the Crystal Heart is shattered in the Season 6 premier seem almost quaint compared to the stack of cataclysms immediately preceding them, but are still plenty dire on their own merits.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJb0XQAUFLI first teaser]] for the upcoming [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror horror-comedy]] TV show ''Series/{{Scream Queens|2015}}'' features a perky college girl blowing a bubble while an [[EarWorm obnoxiously catchy]] teen pop song plays. At first glance, it looks like a promo for ''Series/{{Glee}}'' (both shows were created by Creator/RyanMurphy)... until the girl is stabbed and the bubble explodes with blood, splattering the screen red.
