* Overlapping with LaughingMad: Thot Trom in the Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse. After learning that his peoples' plans across several novels form a StableTimeLoop, that his superiors' attempted recovery of a crashed Alternate Universe starship from Tirana III in ''Literature/StarTrekColdEquations'' - the failure of which led to his penetration of the alternate universe in ''Literature/StarTrekSection31Disavowed'' - was an effort to salvage a ship he would actually crash there himself, Trom is reduced to laughing madly as he plunges toward the planet.

* Joker venom is non-fatal in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''[[labelnote:*]]The creators of the series used The Joker's laughing gas a lot, explaining they had to fall back on something since the censors wouldn't let him shoot anyone. When they saw how the gas instead either left the victims frozen in place or laughing non-stop with their faces twisted into sick, frightening grins, they admitted, "Yeah, that's actually ''worse.''"[[/labelnote]], but in both ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm'' and the ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' three-parter "World's Finest", the Joker finds his own [[JokerImmunity supposedly certain]] death to be uproariously funny. Ironically, he doesn't laugh at all when he met his true end in the flashback in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'', leading to his FamousLastWords:

* Suprisingly, [[MonsterClown Kefka]] [[LaughingMad Palazzo]] of ''Videogame/FinalFantasyVI'' didn't do this, instead dying in complete silence.[[note]]Probably the closest he can go to undergoing the trope is if the player is lucky enough to kill him either immediately after he starts charging Goner/Forsaken, since that's when his head with his laughing expression is displayed, or when the fourth stanza of Dancing Mad starts to loop.[[/note]] He did go out this way in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', with a sad, remorseful laugh rather than his trademark roaring cackle after Terra points out he only fought because death is the only thing that could make him truly happy.
