* ''Karnov'' has what might be the most cheerful GameOver music of all time, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jO2wyZ-hnqE&feature=related which will just make its difficulty all the more frustrating.]]

* The videogame Videogame/WestOfLoathing has some ''really'' awesome tunes... for a {{Slapstick}} comedy game made by the makers of Videogame/KingdomOfLoathing. It's all PlayedForLaughs, though.

* Every single ''SilentHill'' game has this ''at least'' once. The most frequent user is definitely the second game, in which the opening cutscene alone has the beautiful "Theme of Laura" playing over scenes of madness, delusion, suicide, and incredibly suggestive images.
** "Angels Thanatos" is an upbeat heavy metal tune, but is played during the credits of the "In Water"(suicide) ending in SH 2.
** ''Shattered Memories'' has a scene where Harry is trapped in a car underwater, is apparently about to drown, and there are monsters swimming around outside. The solution is to turn on the radio, to the right station, which will start playing Michelle's voice, singing Willie Nelson's "Maybe I Didn't Love You."

* The final boss battle of ''[[ArTonelico Ar Tonelico II]]'' is accompanied by a generally soft, peaceful choral/orchestral number whose composer says represents rebirth. This is appropriate, considering [[spoiler: that's the goal of said final boss(es)]]. It helps that the lyrics are in Hymnos, and thus verses like "I will never forgive even the slightest mistake / Let's praise so the sinners can be judged" go generally uncomprehended.
** Also from that game is EXEC_VIENA/., one of the most cheery and upbeat songs in existence. Its purpose is to create a path up to the satellite Sol Marta while ''destroying a third of the floating continent because otherwise there would not be enough power to create the pathway up''. The general game atmosphere doesn't help, what with everyone's mood in the game essentially being "YES, THEY'RE FINALLY DOING IT!!", even ''some of the people who were forced to move out because they have lived their entire lives on the part of the continent that's about to fall in.''
*** The atmosphere is appropriate because everyone sees it as the first step for the realization of their long sought dream of Metafalica, no matter how much of a sacrifice it is for them.

* ''VideoGame/OFF'' has two instances, both times with Batter fighting a boss with the usual quirky music. When the boss finally decided to [[OneWingedAngel get serious]], the music instantly changes accordingly.

* ''[[VideoGame/Lisa LISA: The Painful]] uses [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBvrO3Syimk Ode to the Oblivious]] as the music for the character select screen during Russian Roulette. Because peppy, arcade-style music totally fits with sending characters to their potential deaths, right?

*** Averted for [[SadBattleMusic The First Hunter]]. It is very fitting TheLastDance between TheHunter and [[DeathSeeker Gehrman, The First Hunter]].

* Episode 1 of ''VideoGame/Code7'' has the [[NightmareFuel horrific lab]]. Main character Alex can see a single room filled with humans on their map that their partner Zoya can't enter as it is locked. Logging into the microphone of that room reveals that they are listening to some sort of Salsa music.

* The peaceful, subdued soundtrack of ''VideoGame/{{Thwaite}}'', a homebrew ''VideoGame/MissileCommand'' clone for [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]], sounds like tunes that might be played in a laid-back social sim. It doesn't fit with the frantic StuffBlowingUp action, emphasizing how abnormal the action is to the characters themselves.

** The {{NES}} version isn't immune to this either, though. ''Lollipops'' is probably the worst offender; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGLVe8h6cW4 the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XplO40aK0oY soundtrack]] is quite depressing when compared to the rest of the game, ''especially'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHMOorKpIKM level 3]].
