I didn't see How I Met Your Mother's as a Downer Ending. What happened is true, but they have found happiness elsewhere, Barney as a father, Ted getting together with Robin, Marshall got into the Supreme Court, and Lily expecting their third child.

It's definitely intended as a Happy Ending, but wound up way more downer-y than intended, putting it squarely under Esoteric Happy Ending.

I hated it, but it doesn't really belong here, I don't think.

Is there a link to the specific source of the page image?

Would Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann qualify for this trope? I haven't seen the series myself, but I've heard the ending was sadder than a lot of fans expected. I don't know if it was extreme enough to qualify.

Why does the guy in the left of the pic have blue genitals?

He doesn't; he's wearing a light blue shirt and navy overalls, like Mario is wearing a brown shirt and red overalls.
