* When [[Manga/{{Haikyuu}} Karasuno's]] [[CoolTeacher Takeda-sensei]] is talking about next month's Tokyo training camp the team's been invited to, the background music is excited and upbeat... then he mentions that finals are going to be next month too. Cue the music stopping and [[BookDumb four characters]] going BlueWithShock.

** Five years later, after many a ShounenUpgrade, Ichigo finally turns the tables on him - stopping first his sword [[CallBack in nearly the same fashion]] and then his massively powerful Black Coffin spell, both times interrupting Aizen's theme song on the height of it's OminousLatinChanting.

** Then there's Blow Us All Away, a fun, catchy song in which Phillip sings about how great he is, how he's following in his father's footsteps, and how he is totally going to get revenge on this guy for insulting his father! [[spoiler:Right up until the literal last ''second'' of the song, when he is suddenly shot on count 7 of his duel.]]

* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' has an interesting example: after We Know, a song in which Jefferson, Madison, and Burr reveal [[spoiler:they've noticed Hamilton's payments to James Reynolds and Hamilton has no choice but to tell the truth about his affair rather than let them believe he was doing something worse, like embezzling money from the government]], we get Hurricane, a passionate, stirring, powerful song that covers the incredible achievements he's made and how far he's come through his writing, including such lines as "And when my prayers to God were met with indifference / I picked up a pen, I wrote my own deliverance!" to dramatise how he decided to respond to this situation by writing the Reynolds Pamphlet. At this point, if you're not too familiar with American history (and don't pick up on the increasingly loud warning chorus of "Wait for it, wait for it!"), it'd be easy to think that the pamphlet was a great success that turned things around for him. However, the next song The Reynolds Pamphlet makes it very, very clear ''immediately'' that this was not at all the case, and that in fact the whole thing pretty much ruined his political career, through practically the whole cast showing up to laugh and mock it and a refrain of "Well you're never gon' be president now!"

* Inverted cruelly in a FatherTed episode: when Ted is being humiliated for writing a worse poem than Mrs Doyle, the camera zooms out as the theme music plays, implying the scene is over. However, the scene carries on anyway for Dougal to rub it in just a little bit more.

** Also, in [[WhamEpisode the eight episode]] when Madoka and Kyubey are sitting on a park bench. [[spoiler: The track Sis Puella Magica, which literally means "Become a Magical Girl!", starts playing up as Madoka finally seems ready to make her wish and save the increasingly burdened Sayaka. Just as the music reaches its peak...Homura turns Kyubey to Swiss cheese. Cue Sayaka witching out one scene later.]]

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'': the final boss is defeated and the game's theme music starts up (just as it did in the previous game). [[spoiler: It keeps playing as Serah has a vision of the future and dies. It isn't until Mog dies and it becomes apparent that something is ''extremely'' wrong does the upbeat pop song stop.]]

Compare CatScare for when dramatic tension is build up with music only for a harmless outcome and NoSell for an explicitly all-powerful attack that is shrugged off by the target. Related to the HopeSpot.
