* In the ''[[VideoGame/TaleSpinSega Talespin]]'' LicensedGame for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVsaOdaNoVY surprisingly cheery music plays in the Game Over screen]], wherein [[ItsAWonderfulFailure Higher For Hire is bought out by Shere Khan]]. [[DramaticThunder The thunder and lightning]] in the background certainly does not help matters.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'', we have [[FoulFlower Cagney Carnation's]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3roEYISMsM battle theme called "Floral Fury"]], which appropriately spices up the battle with adrenaline-pumping fast Latin/samba music; a pretty fine tune to go along with getting yourself drugged and/or killed by a psychopathic flower.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' : As the end credits roll, the Joker sings a sickly, sad rendition of The Platters' "Only You (And You Alone)"-- here, for Batman. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UfsIvwzMeY It actually sadly explains their relationship quite well.]]

* The ''ShinMegamiTensei'' Games for the SNES had a heavy dissonance when it came to the final boss battles, The only dissonance in Nocturne was the First Round of the Final Boss Battle. It had a techno like theme [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=SkTV2yz9nXQ]]
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''; in the Final Mix version of the game during the difficult battle with Roxas, a BossRemix of his theme song accompanied by the piano plays. It lies in stark contrast to the game's typical agitated battle music.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' played Aerith's theme music over the Jenova LIFE boss battle to show Cloud's complete disconnection from the fight in light of Aerith's death. More subtly, it also showed the whole of Sector Seven being obliterated; we cut to President Shinra, who ordered the destruction, sitting in his office watching it all while listening to Haydn.

** Then there's the ominous, forboding and outright sinister [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ux2AXR8JZFQ 9th chinese in-game soundtrack]] as opposed to the fast classical chinese mixed with marching songs usually played. Given [[ChinaTakesOverTheWorld the ending of the expansion]] however, it's possibly intended.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' uses "I've Got You Under My Skin" by Frank Sinatra while Joker's corpse is being creamated.

* ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' has a soundtrack consisting of medieval age european or asian music themes, depending on which continent the player is on. Then we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKW8-Yqz6Kw Ershin's theme]] that's very techno-ish, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwwaXsK9qFE Kahn's theme]] which is like 50's beach rock and acts as his {{Leitmotif}} and boss fight music.

** Just like the aforementioned examples in 1 and 3, New Vegas begins in a similar way, with FrankSinatra's ''Blue Moon'' playing over a long, slow pan across New Vegas and the Mojave. Included in the scene are an abandoned, empty casino, an NCR ranger blowing the head off a Fiend (with blood splattering the camera), members of Caesar's Legion setting up a camp, and a man digging a grave (as you soon learn, it's ''your'' grave). Pretty much the only connection between the song and what's being shown is that the moon is briefly shown on a poster in the casino and is visible in the outdoor scenes.

** An example that doesn't have to do with mood, but [[WestrnAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas "This is Halloween"]] still is the background music... in Christmas Town.

* When jun hopped from Konami to Capcom to make songs for the ''VideoGame/CrossBeats'' series, she didn't stop making cute and happy songs with surprisingly difficult charts. "HONEY♡SUNRISE" in particular is no less cheerful than any of her other usual songs, yet its Master chart, at level 88, is the highest-rated chart on the default songlist!

** Speaking of that series, ''MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'' only had, barring the Giant Bowser fights and the FinalBoss, only one boss theme, for EVERY BOSS. You don't get a different theme for Alpha/Beta Kretin, which kidnapped Peach earlier and is coming back for revenge, the fight between the Bros. and Bowser, [[spoiler: the Shroobs under Bowser's Castle, which is even more egregious because it's optional, and major late game bosses, most notable the Dark Star and Dark Fawful.]]

* ''Earth 2140'' (which is, naturally, the prequel to ''[[{{Earth2150}} Earth]]'' ''[[SequelDisplacement 2150]]'') is set in a post-apocalyptic world covered in war, which is somewhat pictured in the first three tracks of the local Redbook soundtrack... Right after that, you get to hear a couple of calm jazzy songs, a flamenco-ish piece and, to top that, a really nature-friendly string-instrument melody with birds singing in background. Although, [[ZigZaggedTrope between that,]] you get to hear ''Earth 2140'''s theme tune and its' remix which somehow match the pace of what's going on the screen.

* In ''VideoGame/PN03'', the music for the FinalBoss's first form is a driving IndustrialMetal[=/=]DrumNBass fusion track that unfortunately suffers from LongSongShortScene, while the second form's theme is a slow, lumbering piece that sounds more appropriate for the first phase of a battle.

* The first stage for ''Doctor Who And The Mines Of Terror'' (yes based on [[Series/DoctorWho that show]]) is accompanied by music that is recognizable as being lifted from the opera ''{{Carmen}}''.

* ''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.
