* Parodied in the ReducedShakespeareCompany's play, ''Completely Hollywood'', where they end their major mash up of all movies with the BigBad and hero confronting each other in slow motion. This very song is played as the hero dodges all of the villain's shots before killing him with one lucky one (as per cliched hollywood action movie ending).

* Even {{anime}} gets in on the act here. The WholeEpisodeFlashback exploring Meia's tragic {{backstory}} in the first season of ''{{Vandread}}'' featured this song extensively. Then they subvert Soundtrack Dissonance by playing it completely straight at the end of the episode. Turns out, it really ''is'' A Wonderful World.

* There's a video on Youtube called "Satchmo's Lie", and plays "What a Wonderful World" to clips of nuclear tests.

* Subverted in the climax of ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' where, while the initial situation it appears in ([[spoiler:a truck flying off of a freeway and landing into the ocean]]) is certainly calamitous, the progression of events ([[spoiler:all the Cleveland-bound marine life being freed and Dory reuniting with her family]]) complement the meaning of the song.

Added DiffLines:

** Subverted on the very end of said manhwa [[BittersweetEnding when machines who were made by humans came from the space and despite the loss of the DNA from them, they saw that the A.I. saved all the DNA of all the species of the world, including the mankind, sadly, the A.I. didn't managed to see the revival of the life since he died on that moment]]. Oh, and the world revived after all those millions of years later.

** ''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' has a long history of abusing "What a Wonderful World." It replaced "[[TheEagles Journey of the Sorcerer]]" as the music over the credits at the end of [[Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy the first radio series]], where Ford and Arthur, displaced in time, wonder at how beautiful the prehistoric Earth is, conscious that it'll be gone in two million years. The same scene appears in [[Series/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy the TV adaptation]], shifting into a readout on the Guide, floating through space, to explicitly remind us that in the show's "present", the Earth is destroyed.

* The TropeCodifier (though not the first use of the song in this context) is played by Adrian Cronauer, as portrayed by Creator/RobinWilliams, on his radio show in ''Film/GoodMorningVietnam''; the song runs over a montage of troops fighting in the field, officers at base looking reflective (and for once content with his music choice), a village being carpet bombed, a group of suspected Viet Cong arrested and summarily executed in an alley, and protesters clashing with police forces.
