* The sheer absurdity of some of the situations that transpire in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' can veer into this. [[LudicrousGibs Given the nature]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath of the combat system]] [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank in the game,]] BloodyHilarious and BlackComedy tend to come into play frequently as well.

We also have random instances of MundaneMadeAwesome on occasion, e.g. "The metalsmith has been stung by a honeybee!"

* ''VideoGame/PotatoThriller'' is a bizarre horror-adventure game with [[StylisticSuck deliberately half-assed graphics]] and a nonsensical plot. It involves a bounty hunter named Quindalin and his partner Dexter trying to track down the Potato Man, a Mr-Potato-Head-esque figure who kills people by deep-frying them alive.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/TheBirdFeeder'' has a character called Exotic, who is an exotic bird of indeterminate species, who claims to be from an unknown island off the coast of Brazil called Combrobway. Generally, any strip involving Exotic or any of its strange stories of its homeland is fairly surreal.

* The music videos, tour antics, promotional materials and overall atmosphere generated by MileyCyrus during her promotion of the 2013 album ''Bangerz'' is fueled on this, when it's not the usual RefugeInAudacity or HotterAndSexier. From dancing midgets and...erm, bottom-heavy twerking dancers, to dancing rainbows, teddy bears and unicorns, to the DerangedAnimation projected onscreen during the ''Bangerz'' Tour, to the surrealism surrounding her "We Can't Stop" video, all convention seems thrown out the window.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/LasagnaCat'' runs giving this treatment to the ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' comics, often to a ridiculously far-out degree.
