** The "Grand Theft City" sketch, where [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario and Luigi]] go to [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto Vice City]]. In late 2016, the Nintendo Switch was announced, and among the games included in the presentation was ''Super Mario Odyssey'', in which Mario explores a big city, among other places.

*** Well, except for the bidet. That was probably a mercy killing.
* NightmareFuel:
** The ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' parody that ends up with Calvin locked in a padded cell. ''[[MadnessMantra Mars is amazing...]]''
** There's a segment with Lil Hitler where he tells his teacher that he needs a Polish boy's desk. Cut to a Polish boy next to him, sweating. You'd think sweating wouldn't be funny, but when someone's sweating clay (or whatever that is), it really IS unsettling. This is also Nausea Fuel.
** The Gummy Bear has...a rather horrifyingly painful scream for some.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-E8IA_sxcQ Go, go,]] [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Gadget]] Franchise/{{Terminator}}.
** Dear God, the ''Sunny Muffins'' skit.
** The freaking ''bungee jumping skit.''
** The Joker under the electric chair. [[MoodWhiplash Until he shouts]] '''''[[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments "FUCK YOU, DORK KNIGHT!"]]'''''
** The video in which The Mad Scientist kidnaps the Robot Chicken's wife.
** Darkwing Duck being ''cooked alive'' in the oven with Gosalyn, ''his daughter'', watching in horror. Then at the end, he is served to her and Michael Moore and is '''decapitated''' and Gosalyn's scream ''echoes into the credits!''
-->'''D.W.:''' AT LEAST SLIT MY THROAT FIRST!!!
** Franchise/{{LEGO}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2i_CKDrZUw astronauts burning alive]].
-->'''Fireman''': THEIR FACES! THEIR HORRIBLE FACES!
-->'''Astronauts''': *PerpetualSmiler* *screaming*
** On an airplane, a boy comments that the people below look like ants. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y90la17w2OE&feature=relmfu Then this happens.]]

** Dr. Ball M.D.'s mockery of the consensus of Padme [[DeathByDespair "losing the will to live"]] (2008) can come off as mean-spirited after the passing of Creator/DebbieReynolds, who was indeed distressed over the passing of her daughter,
Creator/CarrieFisher just one day prior.

* HarsherInHindsight: In the sketch where the Sarlaac pit spits out Boba Fett, Fett ends the sketch by pointing at the screen and telling Han Solo to watch his ass in Episode VII. Um... yeah. Lighthearted joke in 2012, somewhat less so come December 2015.
** Similarly, the already-dark joke about [[spoiler: the murder-suicide of Huey, Dewey, and Louie's [[DisposableSexWorker mother-turned-hooker]] in "Duck Duck Party"]] was given new life when [[WesternAnimation/Ducktales2017 the reboot]] is ''actually'' going to be dealing with that very plot thread - hopefully it won't end as badly.
* HeartwarmingInHindsight: "Hollywood Spotlight of the Incredible Hulk" focuses on the Hulk's career and how it plummeted after his show was cancelled. This was before the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.

** The 1776 Sketch, a parody of ''Film/ThreeHundred'', becomes funnier with the recent announcement that [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/03/02/zack-snyder-wants-to-make-george-washington-film-in-style-of-300 Zack Snyder wants to do a film about George Washington]].

Added DiffLines:

** The ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' spoof "Wizards in Heat" has Dumbledore portrayed as African-American, to the initial confusion of Harry. Come ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'', and an ''HP'' character usually portrayed as white -- Hermione, in this case -- really does become played by someone of African descent.

** The Franchise/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}} are more {{Jerkass}} like than heroic, but most especially Franchise/{{Superman}}. The other members of the group have other characteristics played up.

** In that same sketch, there's a bit with Ang Lee TemptingFate about the possibility of ''Film/{{Hulk}}'' being his CareerKiller. Later that year, ''Film/BrokebackMountain'' came out, which was a huge WinBackTheCrowd after the poor reception of ''Hulk.''
