** Any emotional moment that includes Rin Matsuoka is ruined by his comical teeth. It makes sense for him to have them [[AnimalMotifs since he's compared to a shark]], but they still make him look silly and out of place.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'', the scene where Kiriya screams while [[spoiler: mourning for his sister Poisonny]] is so badly paced (Kiriya first starts ranting [[spoiler: that he'll survive unlike her]] and ''then'' begins screaming) that it loses all of its drama.

** Episode 7 had Iona, the DarkMagicalGirl, give Ruko a BreakingSpeech in a scene very reminiscent to [[spoiler: ReturnOfTheJedi's "feel the anger flow through you" scene]], and every action Iona henceforth takes is reminiscent of [[spoiler: [=Ian McDiarmid=]]]'s hammy acting.

*** Made even worse by how [[spoiler: Walter's "boss" tries to kill Lunlun so she won't be a SpannerInTheWorks. He ties her up and leaves her in... a HUGE DrowningPit. [[WhatAnIdiot Which is VERY easy to find in the end]].]] Come ON, this isn't ''ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop''!
** In the Latin-American dub, the emotional moment in which [[spoiler: the [[IllGirl blind]] HeartwarmingOrphan Lucero tries to disuade her friends from using a UsefulNotes/WorldWarII bomb as a "hostage" to get her the medical attention that she desperately needs]] becomes horribly hilarious once you notice that the dub VA is either a ''male'' trying to voice a little girl, or a very deep-voiced old woman trying to do likewise. Either way, the LarynxDissonance hits HARD and makes what was supposed to be a TearJerker completely ''ridiculous''.

** The first theme song, Judy and Mary's ''Sobakasu'', is especially narmy. Here, we have a badass who can practically take down ANY foe without actually killing him. Some blood, broken bones, swearing, and dramatic scenes. What do we get for his theme song? A very [[TastesLikeDiabetes cutesy]] [[SoundtrackDissonance theme song]] that bears a slight resemblance to the 1980s Heathcliff one. That would be like playing the MuppetBabies theme during the opening for ''Series/SonsOfAnarchy''.

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', the {{filler}} Shimabara arc has the scene where [[spoiler: Shougo and his followers are surrounded by the Japanese military and resist their attacks before the Kenshingumi and the Dutch ambassador (the only authority figure willing to help) can get there]]. It's all very dramatic, specially considering [[spoiler: Magdaria's recent HeroicSacrifice]], up until [[spoiler: a little Christian kid named Ganta loses it, tells his best friend Sakura goodbye... and begins screaming "'I'M GOING TO HEAVENNNN!" as [[TooDumbToLive he runs right into a bomb and almost gets blown up]], only Shougo's BigDamnHeroes saving him.]] While ItMakesSenseInContext ([[spoiler:Ganta [[BreakTheCutie has mentally cracked]] due to [[DisappearedDad his father's recent murder]] and the whole "let's kill {{Japanese Christian}}s" deal]]), [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment it comes off as so random and sudden]] that the until-then really tragic scene turns into borderline BlackComedy.

* That scene in ''Manga/HanaYoriDango'' when Tsukushi found out she kissed Domyoji in the dark. Shocked faces, slo mo close ups, ominous music... he stole her first kiss, not murder anyone.

** Much of ''Gurren Lagann's'' main motifs are [[FreudWasRight drills and genetic material]]. Maybe that's why Simon's name is pronounced like that...

** Then there are the FunnyBruceLeeNoises Kenshiro makes while fighting. If you were listening to it without watching, you'd think he was fighting a flock of chickens.

** The anime scene where [[spoiler: Kaoru strips naked to show Takehiko her mastectomy scars]] loses almost all its dramatic weight when the viewer sees that she did it ''out in the open, in the middle of a (thankfully empty) road''. Having it take place in a private space or [[spoiler: an hospital room]] wouldn't have been so bad, but more than one viewer almost expected [[spoile: Kaoru being caught by the police and arrested for indecent exposure]], or something. Thank God she apparently thought about it later and [[spoiler: opened her shirt to show the scars to Nanako in a secluded spot of the school]]...
