* Sasuke Uchiha in {{Manga/Naruto}} definitely has this post-timeskip. After [[spoiler: learning his brother, who he'd spent the majority of the manga on a vendetta against for murdering their entire family, was actually a martyr, he snaps and swears to burn down Konoha, despite his brother giving his life to protect it. All this is due to this trope, which is a product of his growing insanity.]]

[[AC:Film]] * ''Film/TheCrowd'': When a desperate John tries to get people outside to quiet down as his daughter is dying, the traffic cop at the corner tells him the world can't stop because his kid's sick. Later, a title card says that "The crowd laughs with you always...but it will cry with you for only a day." Following scenes show how the uncaring world moves on as John plunges into despair.

* Played for ''extremely'' cruel comedy on ''Series/MadMen''. In the first season's [[WhamEpisode finale]] it was revealed that Peggy had gotten pregnant out of wedlock [[spoiler:with a married co-worker's baby]]; during the interval, she's apparently been ''legally declared'' unfit to raise the child, who's been put up for adoption (TheFifties were really a wonderful decade in which to be a woman). If you were to take a drink for every time babies, pregnancy, or abortion have been mentioned in her presence over the following three episodes, you'd end up needing your stomach pumped.

* ''ComicBook/GastonLagaffe'': A guy in the forest who just broke up with his girlfriend looks around to see only animals merrily frolicking in pairs, reflecting on how even ''they'' find happiness... then he sees Gaston's car bouncing along a badly-maintained road, and lightens up considerably, seeing as everything is joyous and energetic today.
