* ''Anime/PrincessTutu'': The author Drosselmeyer is fanatically obsessed with pain and tragedy. He flat-out states that he considers stories with happy endings to be "boring."

* ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesofHistory'': Bob accuses Picasso of this and specifically mentions his "Blue Period". This contrasts his own belief that paintings can be happy and loving.

* ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'': While there's plenty of comedic and uplifting movies he likes, he has a tendency to praise darker (when it's done well and has a point), depressing stuff more.

* Mocked rather ruthlessly in Music/BowlingForSoup's song "I'm Gay."
-->''I think rock and roll is [[{{Narm}} really funny]] when it's serious.''\\
''[[SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers Don't hate us 'cause we're happy,]]''\\

''[[HaveAGayOldTime I'M GAY!]]''
** Most of the band's work in general makes a point to avert this -- even their sad/angry songs tend to have a silver lining to them, or at least a bit of comedy to take the edge off.

* ''WebVideo/ExtraCredits'': Discussed in the episode [[http://extra-credits.net/episodes/hard-boiled/ "Hard Boiled,"]] where they show that just because ''VideoGame/MaxPayne 3'' is DarkerAndEdgier than its previous entries in its series, doesn't inherently make it more artistic.

* Mocked in ''Literature/{{IT}}'', which, like many Creator/StephenKing stories, features a writer as a major character. Bill Denborough, one of the novel's leads, attends a writing program in college in the late 1960's/early 1970's, and finds himself butting heads against the other students in the class and even the teacher, who insists on analyzing every detail of every story in an anti-war, psychosexual model (the same teacher praises another student's play, which lasts for hours and consists of a cast of actors repeating individual words--one word each--that eventually become a sentence against capitalism). When Bill finally gets tired of the constant insistence on finding deeper meanings in everything they write, he asks, "Can't you guys just let a story be a ''story?''" Notably, [[TakeThat he's the only one in his class who becomes a major success.]]


Added DiffLines:

* Humorously parodied in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnWh8tKfMbk two]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPAtpAelwe4 sketches]] from ''Series/SaturdayNightLive.'' Six high school students put on a bizarre, supposedly symbolic show about contemporary life, including the all-white cast pretending to be shot and declaring "AND WE WERE ALL BLACK" and [[NoFourthWall annoying audience interaction]]. Their parents, and even the drama teacher (who's seen [[INeedAFreakingDrink chain-smoking cigarettes]]), are all confused and occasionally offended by the "artistic" piece.
