* The big series finale of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' reaches the climax of its [[CainAndAbel Zuko and Azula]] subplot when the two challenge each other to one final Agni Kai. We expect some epic, fast-paced music to start, but instead, the melody that greets us is a very sad-sounding, slow, beautiful piece called "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ksy1kWdu9Rs&list=PL6DE1786CC810D0A9&index=38 The Last Agni Kai]]".

* The opening of SonicSatam: Bafflingly, it depicts Robotnik's conquest and roboticisation of Mobotropolis while a BraggingThemeTune keeps going on about how cool and fast Sonic is.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Future Vision", Steven's panicky {{imagine spot}}s about the various ways he could get killed are accompanied by a jaunty jazz piano tune called "Death Rag".

** Speaking of ''American Dad!'', we'd be terribly remiss if we neglected to mention [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rlzgmr_9sPA this gem]] from "Roy Rogers McFreely". A dangerous car chase between Roger, and Stan-Terry-and-Greg... [[ItmKaesJustAsMuchSenseInContext set to a relaxed ballad about dogs and cats, sung in Spanish.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has a truly wonderful soundtrack. One of the happiest, cheeriest themes heard frequently throughout the series is a upbeat flute-played tune that would be right at home in a circus... which also happens to be [[MonsterClown The Joker's]] theme music. He sometimes [[ThemeTuneCameo whistles it]].

** The Penguin's theme sounds nasty and threatening...which is a bit strange, since this version of the character is quite soft-spoken and at times AffablyEvil - not the quacking maniac we remember from Burgess Meredith and [=Danny DeVito=] portrayals.
** Poison Ivy's theme is soft, dreamlike and chimey. This is a woman who regularly murders people in the most sadistic ways she can think of.



** There's also the episode "The Forgotten." Gotham City is a steel-clad, faux-1940s metropolis, so you'd expect to hear overly dramatic classical music (which we do) or else jazz and/or showtunes (which we sometimes do). But in this episode the action shifts to some sort of arid, rocky landscape out west (could be South Dakota, or maybe Wyoming) so that Batman can capture some [[CorruptHick Corrupt Hicks]] who have kidnapped and enslaved homeless people in order to mine gold. The hicks' theme is as "frontier" as all-get- out, with rapidly-played harmonicas and a booming basso guitar straight out of a Western movie.

** The early Joker episode "The Last Laugh" has a rather minimalist soundtrack: a drum machine straight out of a really dark hip-hop video, with the Joker's regular theme interrupting throughout. [[HellIsThatNoise It's actually very unsettling.]]
** "Baby Doll" has a bright and happy TV sitcom theme playing at certain points. But then we learn that the star of the show has become a psychopath.

** An in-universe example comes when Otto proposes to his girlfriend while playing [[Music/{{Poison}} "Every Rose Has It's Thorn"]]--which is a BreakupSong. Either [[TheStoner Otto doesn't realize this]] or he cared more about playing a song he liked than one that made sense. It's little wonder that their wedding was cancelled with him literally choosing music over her.

* The song in ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' that is sung over scenes where Tarzan's parents and Kala and Kerchak's biological son are both killed by a leopard. It's an upbeat song by PhilCollins. To it's credit, it does slow down at the appropriate moment.

** In "Marge on the Lam" Ruth Powers prepares for a thrill-seeking night of pushing Marge's boundaries and slams a cassette into her car stereo, only for it to start playing "Sunshine and Lollypops". She quickly corrects it to the intended song - "Welcome to the Jungle". Later on Chief Wiggum also sets up some music for a gritty car chase, and again comes up with "Sunshine and Lollypops". In this case this is apparently the exact song that he intended.

* El Manana by {{Gorillaz}} is a slow, peaceful song, and the video for it has [[{{Moe}} Noodle]] sitting on a windmill in the clouds, surrounded by greenery and looking pretty chilled out. [[spoiler: Then helicopters arrive and start shooting at her, sinking the island and [[WhamEpisode apparently killing her]].]] Cloud of Unknowing, whilst being very sombre in tone, also has a very violent [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S02Sb_KnndQ video]].

* The song "Two Worlds" sung at the very beginning of ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' is actually sung over scenes where Tarzan's parents and Kala and Kerchak's biological son are both killed by a leopard.
