* ''BatenKaitos: Origins'' has the scene in the Lava Caves. You've just watched [[spoiler:[[WellIntentionedExtremist Bein]] transform into an Umbra, get shot down by Valara, then discovered Sagi's bizarre dreams(?) take place before the legendary war]]. Then the Lord of the Lava Caves pops out, and the escape from the collapsing cavern turns into a farce.

* In ''VideoGame/{{jubeat}}'', pass/fail status is determined by score rather than a LifeMeter. This means if you get a [[NoDamageRun full combo]], but you don't meet the score quota due to getting too many [=GOODs=] (you pretty much [[DoWellButNotPerfect have to try]], through), the game is more than happy to [[FlawlessVictory recognize your full combo status]]...and then [[HaveANiceDeath give you a failing grade]] a few seconds later. (Which, outside of special circumstances[[note]]failing your first stage without being logged into e-amuse, or having someone else in a multiplayer match clear the song[[/note]], results in a GameOver.)

** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'''s radio engine is actually capable of inadvertently creating this due to the shuffle nature of the engine. Tammy Wynette's ''D-I-V-O-R-C-E'' playing right after Ozark Mountain Daredevils' ''If You Want To Get To Heaven'' and Chicago's ''If You Leave Me Now'' right after Allanah Miles' ''Black Velvet'' are just some of the known examples that have have happened.

*** Of course, the scene in question dealt with a very personal and uncomfortable matter in Varric's past. He probably just didn't want to talk about it and/or felt it wasn't really relevant to the story.

* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'': The numerous easter eggs can cause this, breaking the immersion of the story. There's also an in-universe instance -- in one level, a glitch causes the sky to go dark and the textures to start to disappear. Elohim notices and makes a pronouncement about how he will not allow this sort of thing, and the world reasserts itself. It sounds very godly and majestic, but once the glitch is fixed he announces, "Excess data cleared" as if he was no more than a maintenance program.

* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4'' has a amazingly brutal and tragic ending. Then during the end credits, it then switches to a ''rap song'' by Griggs. Then there is the epilogue which is a ''TimeCrisis'' style mission on a plane that starts off with an ''Airplane'' quip. Seeing those two moments after the ending you have just witnessed is just so ''jarring''.

* ''VideoGame/EscapeFromLavenderTown'' starts off asF a seemingly boring pokemon hack. [[spoiler: but when you press the right key, it becomes threatening and scary. The end music is also very soothing and calm, after the horrible experience that you just endured.]]

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' has the thirteenth chapter as a whole. It begins with the heroes traveling to the bright and cheerful Barum Town, that has plenty of quirky residents, a peppy Celtic-style tune playing in the background, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick a small group talking about the rumors of]] [[TakenForGranite Pokémon all over the world being turned into stone]]... [[spoiler: that gets interrupted by Latios and Latias crashing landing, the heroes coming across their petrified bodies, along with Entei showing up and attempting to kill the heroes.]] This is one of those dark turns mentioned above.

* ''VideoGame/NieR'' has the absolute gall to pull this trope during Ending B, where it's revealed [[spoiler:Emil is NotQuiteDead and is hopping along cheerfully as only a head.]] Though considering this is after the game has been hitting you with all the whammies of [[spoiler:Emil seemingly sacrificing himself earlier, the backstories of all the Shades you had killed, and finding out that killing them [[NiceJobBreakingItHero basically doomed the human race to extinction]],]] it makes the scene that much more [[FunnyMoments funny]] and [[HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming.]]
