What are some "happy disasters" in anime? Some kind of scene where upbeat music is playing while something horrible is going on.

It's not a great show but the end of the first episode of Aldnoah Zero. That first episode was actually quite good. Shame about the rest unless you like cute boys suffering.

Except that isn't upbeat music in the slightest. It's pretty fitting for what's going on.

How can a song literally named "come sweet death" be considered "upbeat".

The point is, it is a catchy and upbeat sounding song that is actually about killing yourself.

"Upbeat" is used to describe songs that are somewhat preppy in tempo or make you feel good and give you energy.

It doesn't apply to "Komm Susser Todd" but he's using it appropriately IMO.

Komm Susser Todd
It's Komm, Süßer Tod, or "Komm Suesser Tod" if you can't into German special characters.
It's not that hard.

Didn't one of the .hack shows have like the main character and his waifu sacrificing themselves to save everyone else stuck in the game or w/e, but they were happy together or something?

I watched Wind Rises the other day and there was a rather striking scene of a plane burning and crashing to the sound effects of a piano key and a tennis game.
Also in Hunter x Hunter there's the episode where Kurapika is auditioning for his bodyguard job. While they're being attacked by ninjas it's set to a man playing piano in another room.
I don't know if either are really "happy" but they're certainly offbeat music choices which draw more attention to the scene at hand.

You can't expect people to spell it like that when the characters aren't on their keyboard.
You wouldn't use ü pr ß in a crossworld puzzle either.

I'm more curious how Tod turned into Todd.
Was it a spelling mistake that caught on among non-Germans before anybody could correct them?

My brother was watching akame ga kill the other day and I walked in on the scene where they are fighting the giant guy right after they were ambushed at the headquarters.

They were playing some wierd smooth jazz gor the fight scene.

I just browsed a few, and it looks like people put entries without actually understanding the "trope".

Most of those are about ED or OP that "do not fit with the mood of the series or the episode".

Japanese Dragonball/Z/GT BGM is ridiculous-sounding in general a lot of the time (lots of springy noises and high-pitched DU-DUUUNs), so there are probably lots of other examples. I remember a scene in GT where Pan was crying having some silly circus music, for example.
