*** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.]]

* The bright, humorous, mostly family friendly, PS2 dog adventure simulator ''Dog's Life'' takes a turn toward Nightmare Fuel during the last part of it. You find out [[spoiler:that a popular brand of cat food is made out of dogs]]. You have to save your love interest from certain demise in a gloomy, run-down factory, where the blades are coated in ''blood''. After you save her the villain falls and gets [[spoiler:turned into cat food while you hear her screams]]. And the game still has a happy, upbeat epilogue. It's highly likely that the "T" rating was solely because of this scene.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' short "Alive" does this in less than a second as going from Tracer dodging a bullet from Widowmaker, but then following that same bullet down to where it takes out Tekhartha Mondatta, the Omnic monk that Tracer had been trying to keep alive in the first place.

* The tragic yet inevitable ending of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII: Crisis Core'' in which [[spoiler: Zack]] dies is rather jarringly offset by the peppy Jpop playing over the game credits.
** The song is called "Why", nothing about it sounds happy. At all.
