* The music videos, tour antics, promotional materials and overall atmosphere generated by Music/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.

* Music/{{Queen}}'s [[https://youtu.be/Od6hY_50Dh0 video]] for "[[SanitySlippageSong I'm Going Slightly Mad]]" straddles the line between this and SurrealHorror.

* A standard feature of ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie''. Most of the sketches are parodies or satirical, but they usually have some little thing that is ''off''. A man delivering a dull monologue is eating his cornflakes with a knife and fork; a modern-day {{Swashbuckler}} accuses a corrupt MP of lining his ''bathroom'' with fine delicacies (and the swordfight has a random interruption with a VoxPop).

* VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes, in a very cynical manner of speaking. Your opponents in the first game alone include a mad scientist with an earthquake machine operated by a BrainInAJar who [[spoiler: gets taken out by your rival [[CutSceneBoss in the middle of a cut-scene]]]], an old bag lady whose shopping cart turns into a WaveMotionGun, and [[PsychopathicManChild a creepy woman-child]] who attacks with sports equipment and an army of gimps.

* {{VideoGame/Psychonauts}} thrives on this trope thanks to the theme of entering the minds of the mentally unstable leading to some pretty surreal scenarios, like travelling an Escher-esque suburban neighborhood infested with thinly-disguised secret agents.

* [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Between adopting sirloin steaks and discussing marijuana usage with Dracula]], the humor in SpaceFuneral tends to get pretty weird.

* 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.
